Part 1

Verse 1

I was hideous in your eyes right from the start,

A Flanders' Mare, never worthy of your heart.

I was made aware of everything I was not,

A creature lacking beauty, I was meant to rot.

Verse 2

I'd be fortunate if I do not lose my life

Over this ill conceived ordeal of being your wife.

I lacked the charms to ever claim you as mine.

So I lay in wait of my fate at the hand of time.

Chorus

I have nothing left but my will

To escape the king eager to kill.

I will walk away a victor, not a victim.

I will turn this nightmare into a dream.

Part 2

Verse 1

Do you know how deep a cut

Feelings of inadequacy can make?

You gave me nothing but

Accusations of causing you heartache.

Verse 2

Do you know how hard I tried

To transform into your dream woman?

The innocent part of me died

A brutal death at your cold, cruel hands.

Chorus

Now I have nothing left but my will

To escape the king eager to kill.

I will walk away a victor, not a victim.

I will turn this nightmare into a dream.

Part 3

Verse 1

Then came the time for my disposal.

I chose to submit myself to your will.

Some call me clever, some a coward.

But who angers a king eager to kill?

Verse 2

I was granted mercy at your hand-

A handsome pension, a piece of land.

You set your eyes on another dame,

That your murderous soul would soon claim.

Outro

I shall have a long full live.

I shall outlive you and all your wives.

Armed with nothing but my will

To escape the king eager to kill.

I will walk away a victor, not a victim.

I will turn this nightmare into a dream.
