I think we were cursed from the start,
Second I let you into my heart.
Do you think we were speaking in tongues,
Or simply not enough?
Do you ever wonder,
Who took the light from our life?
The life from our eyes?
All we did was suffer,
Why couldn’t we just say...

You took my heart.
You took my heaven away.

Our love is pushing out and pulling in,
Just like a rising and falling chest that’s barely breathing.
Did you ever wonder,
About the dread on my tongue?
The blood in my lungs?
All I did was suffer,
I was too afraid to say…

You took my heart.
You took my heaven away.

I think we were cursed from the start.

    General CommentThe album title is All We Know of Heaven, All We Need of Hell - this is from an Emily Dickerson poem:

    My life closed twice before its close;
    It yet remains to see
    If Immortality unveil
    A third event to me,

    So huge, so hopeless to conceive,
    As these that twice befell.
    Parting is all we know of heaven,
    And all we need of hell.
