Winter has come
to seal my fate
just a year ago I took that final step
took a gun and cut my sweet young lover down
the newspaper said that the bad and the beautiful
carry the burden of love

Now I simply refuse to cry
with a secret I'll take to my grave
for I have but an hour to go
now the hangman approaches death row

Oh Billy love your child has grown
I only hope that he won't be his mother's son
with a vein of madness poisoning his soul
regrets I have none but the bad and the beautiful
carry the burden of love

Now I simply refuse to cry...

Goodbye to the world I love
you have done me no good, you know
my lullaby is a bell that tolls
as the hangman approaches death row

Now I simply refuse to cry...
