Part 1

Verse

I beseech you only once,

Won't you grant me one last chance?

Won't you look at me,

Your Majesty?

How can you forget the love we had?

Chorus

In control of my fate,

Consumed by want and hate,

You condemn me to a pain I never deserved.

Verse

My downfall was my damned pride,

Of being your beloved bride,

Never thought I'd see

You replace me.

How can you forget the love we had?

Chorus

In control of my fate,

Consumed by want and hate,

You condemn me to a pain I never deserved.

Part 2

Verse

Now here I rot in this tower.

Once a queen drunk in her power.

Now a woman waiting for her life to come to an end.

Declared a traitor to your reign,

My pleas for mercy were in vain.

In your kingdom I never had even a single friend.

Chorus

In control of my fate,

Consumed by want and hate,

You condemn me to a pain I never deserved.

Verse

My God turned his back on me too,

He won't deliver me from you.

And so I am to wait for the one called the sword of Calais.

If I offend you with my life,

Death will redeem your wretched wife,

To God I commend my soul, Lord have mercy on me, I pray.

Chorus/ Outro

In control of my fate,

Consumed by want and hate,

You condemn me to a pain I never deserved.

The people rejoice, the king's justice is served.

You condemn me to a death I never deserved.

I've come here to die, they've come to observe.

And thus I take my leave of the world.
