Relentless Love


We're walking down the cracked old street
My hand in yours, so bittersweet
Your smile is wide, your intentions concealed
A scar on your heart that will never heal
My face is bright but my eyes are dead
Your love is a hammer against my head
When my lips touch yours I see sparks fly
Like I'm in the electric chair, about to fry

There's a man somewhere yelling our names
But the sound is lost within the flames
You let me drag you through the depths of Hell
Where our love is the only living thing that dwells
There it lies and there it shall stay
As for you and I, we were sent away
Kicked out of Hell and thrown into Heaven
With our burgeoning hatred as our only weapon
Chained together in paradise and bliss
My lasting love is a dark, foul abyss

There's a man somewhere yelling our names
But we are getting too clever for his games
Forever trapped behind the pearly gates
Love cannot save us from our fates
If I could only let go of our eternal bond
And before they knew it we could both abscond
But as treacherous and horrid as our passion may be
Without you I wouldn't really be me
You could always just let go of my hand
But without me you're alone in no man's land
Our love thrives in the depths of Hell
And maybe we will never do as well
But I grit my teeth through the blood, sweat, and tears
And you gear up to face your worst fears
Your love is harsh and at times unwanted
But by my love, you will always be haunted

There's a man somewhere yelling our names
But we are sticking with our chains
We're walking down the cracked old street
My hand in yours, so bittersweet
