I have to go now.
I hear the gunfire calling me
The passion of the night is gone
And here, my love
Is one last temporary kiss
Before embraces dissolve into the blackness

I know today that I shall die
And the warmth of your body
Against my corpse
Is welcome tonight
And a final glance at beauty
Before the dawn decides what I'm about to be

The situation is hopeless
And I know that I must end
But there's passion burning, bold and new
Oh, victimless lover
If only I had stayed behind
I'd feel less hopeless and less blind.
