Verse 1

No wife of yours shall take this place of mine.

No wife of yours shall ever dare unwind

Your destiny from mine, and my destiny from hers.

It's not her fault, but silently she must suffer.

Pre chorus

My beheaded virtue's on a silver platter.

What's right, what's wrong, it no longer matters

When love's forbidden, when love's sentenced to die

To feed centuries of customs and lies.

Chorus

So I have become what I despise.

A despicable person in my own eyes.

I wish I could blame you for my fall.

But they are the ones behind it all.

Verse 2

No wife of yours shall ever touch your flesh

With the tender need laced in my caress.

No wife of yours shall ever hold your hand

The way that I do, the way that I can.

Pre chorus

My beheaded virtue's on a silver platter.

What's right, what's wrong, it no longer matters

When love's forbidden, when love's sentenced to die

To feed centuries of customs and lies.

Chorus

So I have become what I despise.

A despicable person in my own eyes.

I wish I could blame you for my fall.

But they are the ones behind it all.

Bridge

So here I am, your mistress.

I cause your wife distress.

And I no longer care.

Chorus

I have become what I despise.

A despicable person in my own eyes.

I wish I could blame you for my fall.

But they are the ones behind it all.
