I am your man
And you're mine
What don't you understand
I'm a gift that I give to you free
So be grateful and start loving me

I won't ever leave
And though you push, won't ever leave you be
Because I know what in your heart remains
And I know what on your soul is stained

And I rest easy tonight
Knowing he lies far from your sight
And as the light shines in across the plains
I know far from you he will remain

Tell me where you've been tonight
My dear
I can see him in your eyes
My dear
Love's a fire I can not light
My dear
On a cold and lonesome night
My dear, my dear, my dear

Like a moth betrothed to a flame
Without words I sense you scream my name
As we burn in fatal ecstasy
I'll know your love was all I would ever need

And that man whose name I heard you call
He meant you harm, he meant to ruin us all
But don't fear, no more you'll see him round
For tonight he sleeps beneath the ground

Tell me where you've been tonight
My dear
I can see him in your eyes
My dear
Love's a fire I can not light
My dear
On a cold and lonesome night
My dear, my dear, my...

Lover please don't fear me
I mean you no harm
I only broke his neck and both his arms
I know that you're weary
So I'll be your best friend
I'll bolt the door and never open it again
And I guess that's how this little tale will end
