Is there something I should say?
Should I wish my crime away?
I am not ashamed
I didn’t see another way

Am I left just holding bones?
Did I make this grave a home?
If it’s hell to haunt these walls
Well, at least I’m not alone.

All the oceans
The deepest well, the longest rain
Couldn’t wash this need away

All the armies
The darkest cell, the longest chain
Couldn’t ever make you stay

They say let him rest in peace
How much can just one girl need?
But I don’t care how long you stay
If you’re only gonna leave

Love is good but blood is better
Some things have to last forever
