You are my poison candygram,
A love that's meant to fade away
Vade retro, alter ego, move aside, I'm choking on my life
You think I tolerate your hate, as long as I'm afraid
But all I wanted was to be with you and suffer every day

Under the moon you held a wake for a promise torn
Mortally wounded, feelings sheltered me
Once again your shadow will enter my life
Time to walk with me the last mile

We read a book about a man, a love, a woman, how they died
How was I waved inside, listen to the headless doves cry
You truly see a madman in the mirror when you're weak
We spent a year in love before I realized what you see

Open your blue eyes, tell me that you love me, no
Make me believe it, ha, I know you lie
You broke the vow I thought you made, oh why...
Could I make you wait out the night

I always said "my love, do the noble thing...
You have to finish what you started, no matter what
Now sit, watch and learn
It's not how long you live, but what your morals say"
Cannot keep the part of the deal
So don't say a word, don't say a word

It won't be long now, love, like mist I slowly fill the room
You placed a candle on my chest
The path of night is manifest
I never wanted us to end up in this catatonic phase
It wasn't me who ran away, you made me stray...

Open your blue eyes, tell me, do you love me? No
Make me believe it, I know you lied
You broke the vow I thought you made
Settling the score, we pass the twilight

I always said "my love, do the noble thing...
You have to finish what you started, no matter what
Now sit, watch and learn
It's not how long you live, but what your morals say"
Cannot keep the part of the deal
So don't say a word, don't say a word

You strawberry blonde, your stranglehold
On my heart is about to end
I suppose, life sometimes,
It doesn't go the way it was meant
Though you never were a believer,
I won't die before you
You read the book and delivered the verse
"Ashes to ashes, dust to dust"

Short is the flight of this little starling
When love, it sounds familiar to me
We had it all so sweet
But now, the truth is revealed...

No word you choose to speak tonight
Can make this pain alright
Now don't cry for me, now darling
The wounds are far too deep

I need to keep the scars
To prove there was a time
When I loved you more than life
Unlike the last time here I now am the most sincere

The truth has now revived
The king is dead but the queen is alive
Close your eyes, don't ever dare to say you love me, no
You never meant a word, I know you lied
When there is life, there is despair, indulge me now
And stay alive this night before the first light arrives
I always said "my love, do the noble thing...
You have to finish what you started, no matter what
Now, sit, watch and learn
It's not how long you live, but what your morals say"
Cannot keep the part of the deal
So don't say a word, don't say a word
You strawberry blonde, your stranglehold on my heart is about to end
Though you were never a believer, I will not die before you

    General CommentI like how they didn't simply "cover" this song, but they changed the lyrics to be about the woman in the original version.
