My Dead Love.

I never saw the reason you were crying,

But my eyes were damp from just watching you.

I would have tried to comfort you,

But I didn't know what I was trying to save you from,

I hoped that you'd take my hand,

And tell me that it was okay.

I had nothing to worry about,

I hoped I hadn't hurt you,

You cannot stop my heart that burns so brightly,

So far from the light of a thousand burning suns.

Take me,

Take care with me,

And hurt me,

Take care my love,

My sweet love.

I would have kissed you that night,

But your lips were frozen blue,

I would have stopped you, but I,

Couldn't find the breath in my lungs to holler out to you,

I hoped that you'd understand,

I wanted a peace that I couldn't have.

I wanted to take you by surprise,

I hope I haven't hurt you,

You cannot stop my heart that burns so brightly,

So far from the light of a thousand burning suns.

Take me,

Take care with me,

And hurt me,

Take care my love,

My sweet love.

So what if the pain burns brighter than my flame?

(Yours has already gone out.)

So what if the hatred drowns out my light?

(Yours is nowhere to be found.)

So what if the life has died?

(Yours was already dead.)

So what if the people are after our souls?

You can still take me,

Take care with me,

And hurt me,

Take care my love,

My sweet love,

My sweet love

You can take me,

Take care with me,

And hurt me,

Take care my love,

This is goodbye.

Farewell, be you well,

Blessed be, 'til next you see me,

Take care,

With a kiss,

My sweet love.

(I wouldn't change a thing)
