Nine years ago I fell in love
With a lady proud and fair
So passionate were she & I
We made fire in the air
I loved her more than life itself
She loved me just the same
And it broke my heart
To think we'd part if she ended the affair
But I was brutal, I was ignorant,
I was cruel, I was brash
I never gave a damn about
The beauty that I smashed
No sadist I, I found delight in
Making my love cry

Now I'd pray for a single kiss from her
To be lashed & crucified

And now I fear this lady fair
Can never more be mine
Long gone are nights in my lonely bed
All suffering and crying
And though I fear that thru this life
She'll call me only friend
'Til I'm dead and buried in my grave
My love will never end
