I love a man, whose love is violence
Who always comes, who goes away
Who never brings me any flowers
To blossom in my blazing shade

And all of his weak-heart love is lonely
Our love is running out of breath.
When I wake, you cannot know me
When I sleep, I dream of death

Wire, Cradle, Cross and Arrow;
Mother's milk or Crone's Rage.
Mouths like Wolves, we dine like Sparrows;
There is grace in great restraint

And all of his weak-heart love is lonely
Our love is running out of breath
When I wake, you cannot know me
When I sleep, I dream of death

And I could not help but leave in wonder,
What spirit steals your awful head.
and I am grateful for your candor
I could not love a better man

‘Cause all of his weak-heart love is lonely
Our love is running out of breath
When I wake, you cannot know me
When I sleep, I dream of death
