Love is so bitter and sweet
Is love a lie?
"What are we doing this for?"
I scream to the sky
Who are you, and who am I?
These are the questions I ask of myself
As I lay down to die

Nothing could hurt me as bad
As silence and time
The pain of the slow moving hand
As I watch it and sigh
Why don't you hold me my love
As I break down and cry?
Maybe the answers will come
As I lay down to die

Darling, I'm reaching for you
Let's run and hide
Escape from the hell in your head
And free your mind
Give you body to me
Just one last time
Tell me you'll love me yet
As I lay down to die
