Seeing red, I mistook it for seeing love

Red wine tears fall from above

Wait for the push to reach the shove

All on the wings of the bloodied dove

Dancing like dust on a winters breeze

At your feet I fell down to my knees

Holding out the rose you love to tease

But you whither its petals whenever you please

Clutching at ashes, a phoenix to arise

I'll fly forever

Keep me alive

Soaring upwards reach for the skies

I'll live forever

Keep me alive

Carrying bad news a carrion of hate

You drop the worm; I'm a fool to your bait

Sniffing your flesh like an unmarred slate

Give me a knife to engrave our fate

So we're finished but you I can't deceive

Parasite of the heart, feed off my need

Through darkest shadows I'll wander to grieve

But this time loves cliché will succeed

Clutching at ashes, a phoenix to arise

I'll fly forever

Keep me alive

Soaring upwards reach for the skies

I'll fly forever

Just keep me alive
