[Choir in square brackets and italics]

Verse 1

There was a time when

The butterfly kissed the rose.

The call of the flame,

And its end was drawing close.

[Innocence/ is fragile/ and easy/ to destroy.

Just one sip/ of sin can/ steal all the/ precious joy.]

I remember those mystic days,

A heart soaked in love's soothing rays,

Eyes sparkling with hope of a spring,

When the entire forest sings.

Chorus

Forever gone, forever lost,

Forever in the hands of Faust,

Are everything that defined me.

Forever fooled, forever doomed,

Forever in a cursed love's tomb,

The shadow of you still blinds me.

Verse 2

There was a time when

The tulip smiled at the sky.

And then the night came,

Forcing it to close its eyes.

[Innocence/ is vulne/rable to/ every blow.

Just one sip/ of sin and/ I had to/ let it go.]

I remember those promises,

The angelic voice, the kisses,

Like a rainbow over my soul,

A magic that made me feel whole.

Chorus

Forever gone, forever lost,

Forever in the hands of Faust,

Are everything that defined me.

Forever fooled, forever doomed,

Forever in a cursed love's tomb,

The shadow of you still blinds me.

Bridge

When the moon embraces the sun,

The sweet sky turns regal in their honor.

When your shadow captures my soul,

I find myself in hell's darkest corner.

Chorus

Forever gone, forever lost,

Forever in the hands of Faust,

Are everything that defined me.

Forever fooled, forever doomed,

Forever in a cursed love's tomb,

The shadow of you still blinds me.

Chorus

Forever gone (Forever gone), forever lost (forever lost),

Forever in the hands of Faust,

Are everything that defined me.

Forever fooled (Forever fooled), forever doomed (forever doomed),

Forever in a cursed love's tomb,

The shadow of you still blinds me.
