Seeing red, I mistook it for seeing love

Red wine tears fall from above

Wait for the push to reach the shove

All on the wings of the bloodied dove

---

Dancing like dust on a winters breeze

At your feet I fell down to my knees

Holding out the rose you love to tease

But you whither its petals whenever you please

---

Clutching at ashes, a phoenix to arise

I'll fly forever

Keep me alive

Soaring upwards reach for the skies

I'll live forever

Keep me alive

---

Carrying bad news a carrion of hate

You drop the worm; I'm a fool to your bait

Sniffing your flesh like an unmarred slate

Give me a knife to engrave our fate

---

So we're finished but you I can't deceive

Parasite of the heart, feed off my need

Through darkest shadows I'll wander to grieve

But this time loves cliché will succeed

---

Clutching at ashes, a phoenix to arise

I'll fly forever

Keep me alive

Soaring upwards reach for the skies

I'll fly forever

Just keep me alive
