Looking back, I see you with eyes that shouldn't be so blue
Clearer than the calm before the rain
So alive, it wasn't fair to live without a single care
I loved you and you felt for me the same
So beautiful that words could not define
Sweeter than the Lord's communion wine

Evangeline, can't you see I'm sorry
Can't you hear my tears ringing through the night
I wait in Hell between these bedsheets
And pray to God for morning light

Winter came and blood ran cold as ever-present sleet and snow
Outside of a December window pane
And this house will never be our home
Hand in hand, we walk alone
I thought the sun would never shine again
And the oldest violin could never whine
A melody as sorrowful as mine

Evangeline, can't you see I'm sorry
Can't you hear my tears ringing through the night
I wait in Hell between these bedsheets
And pray to God for morning light

Now I've seen your face a thousand times in nightmares running through my mind
It hurts just to pretend
But the devil fell and so have I, from perfect grace, your face the sky
I never thought a love like this would end
Now your words they cut right through me like a knife
I gave my love and now I take my life

Evangeline, can't you see I'm sorry
Can't you hear my tears ringing through the night
I wait in Hell between these bedsheets
And pray to God for morning light

I wait in Hell between these bedsheets
And pray to God for morning light
