I said all my prayers, for love true and fair
for faith that could bear what passion veils
for ages we'd make golden with ringing bells and bows
but all those words you told me were cast as spells

Now the thought of each breath of every word you pledged
at every sun we set, it wears me thin
You were lying in my arms for hours in the dark
as your bright errant heart just beat within

Now I still pace the halls, I wait for your calls
though I climb the walls to her lights
She takes the cross from my crest and all the air in my chest
and all that makes me restless tonight

In her arms its true, I now stray I think of you
of all we lost and all we lacked
of all the arrows and swords all the roses and thorns
all the ribbons worth just to get you back
