Your name will walk the years of shame
Your hands, my face, the look, the taste

To gaze how fondly on thy beautiful face
To fold thee in my great arms, my dark embrace

In my arms I comforted her,
and she looked up at me
Weep did she and tried to escape.
My mind she did read
I held her face in my hands and winked my eye
Whispering into her ear 'now you are mine'

Her eyes, her cries, my thoughts, she dies
Walk away, she can try, and if she does, she dies

She leaves behind a golden shell
Its glow does bind me to her cell
And I would walk the endless miles
To hear her talk and to bask in her smile
And when day comes, I knew it would
My tears don't run but I wish they would

    My InterpretationIt seems to be about a vampire who took a human lover...
    She eventually dies of old age, or is discovered and burnt as a wish

    And when that day comes, he cant crie for her, even though he wants to, because he is
    a vampiree

    General CommentThere are more lyrics at the end of this song that aren't listed in the booklet...it's my favourite part of the song. This is as accurate as I can get them:

    "She leaves behind a golden shell
    Its glow does bind me to her cell
    And I would walk the endless miles
    To hear her talk and to bask in her smile
    And when day comes, I knew it would
    My tears don't run but I wish they would"
