Verse 1

I can't hold onto this life,

When I can't latch onto your hand.

I'm undead, won't come alive,

And I think I now understand.

Chorus

The cost of love is searing pain,

Watching your soul seep down the drain.

The cost of love is severed veins,

Feeling nothing deep down again.

Verse 2

I can never replace you,

When I can't again feel that way.

With trembling heart, I face you,

The shadows that won't fade away.

Chorus

The cost of love is searing pain,

Watching your soul seep down the drain.

The cost of love is severed veins,

Feeling nothing deep down again.

Bridge

The cost of loving you

Has emptied the pockets of my faith.

And I have nothing left,

Till I'm drenched by the sweet drops of death.

Chorus

The cost of love is searing pain,

Watching your soul seep down the drain.

The cost of love is severed veins,

Feeling nothing deep down again.
