I lie and listen to you whisper
I'm the shadow of myself
Then I lie and watch you sleeping
Those dreams of her, they satisfy you

You'll never know, o domine
I killed myself for your breath's kiss

She's the figure in the background
So blurred you cannot see her face
She's the fog on winter's mornings
'Fore it leaves without a trace

How I wish I hadn't wished
Upon the blackest star that night
To be with you forevermore
O many times I've paid the price

And you'll never know my darling
I cannot leave until you die

She's the final breath you take
Before your blood flows out before you
She's the moment when you wake
And remember how he stole it from you
