We're all alone in this world

Nail me to the cross in the darkest alley
I said the Prince of Peace doesn't have to know about it
Say three Hail Marys, turn around, pray about it
Come on, nail me to the cross in the darkest alley

Heartbeats through the dark that spread like a poison
And the tears ran hot like black tar of emotion
Inherit the earth when no words are spoken
And the sky like a veil was our wounds torn open

And as she lie dying in a dark alleyway
Her lips were ruby red
And her eyes were money green
But she whispered to me "Come closer, come closer"
And as I knelt down beside
With her dying breath, she said to me
"I'll wait for you forever
And ever, and ever
And ever"

Come on, nail me to the cross in the darkest alley
I said the Prince of Peace doesn't have to know about it
Ah, say three Hail Marys, turn around, pray about it
Ah, come on, nail me to the cross in the darkest alley

Heroine
She's my heroine
She said she's my heroine
She's my heroine

And I was crying Hail Mary
God, I scream Hail Mary
On my knees I cry Hail Mary
Oh Lord, I scream Hail Mary

Oh, listen to me Hail
Mary

I just cried Hail

Hail Mary
Mary, Mary Mary

Hail Mary
Marry me, marry me, marry me
