The day we met my life was changed
I always heard that love was strange and painful, painful
One night you slept upon your side
Dangled and white you looked just like an angel, an angel

So why did you fly away?
I’ve been dying a little death since that very day
I used to laugh when you told me
‘You must forget and forgive to be free’

Down by the water dressed in black
I swore revenge to get you back, hateful, hateful
I made my camp upon the hill
Drank whiskey from the secret still, blameful, blameful

So why did you fly away?
I’ve been dying a little death since that very day
I used to laugh when you told me
‘You must forget and forgive to be free’

And I never could admit
The part I had in it
So this is what I get, my friend

Drunk in a field of scarlet snow
I reconciled with your ghost in April, in April
I stood before the hypocrite
There in the mirror brightly lit, shameful, shameful

Now I know why you ran away
And I’ve been dying a little death since that very day
I used to laugh when you told me
‘You must forget and forgive
You must forgive just to live
You must forget and forgive to be free’
