What ravages of spirit
conjured this temptuous rage?
Created you a monster
broken by the rune of love.
And fate has led you through it
you do what you have to do.
(Repeat last line)

Chorus
And I have the sense to recognize
that I don't know how to let you go.
I don't know how to let you go.

Every moment marked with
apparitions of your soul
However swiftly moving,
trying to escape this desire.
The yearning to be near you
I do what I have to do.
(Repeat last line)

Chorus

Glowing ember, burning hot
and burning slow.
Deep within I'm shaken by
the violence of existing for
only you.
I know I can't be with you
I do what I have to do.
(repeat last line)

Chorus
