If I wanted to die I would have swam the depths of your touch

And if I wanted to hurt I would have broken to the sound of my own cry

But with you there and I’m so far away,

There is nothing left for me to deny.

Break your last breath

Because tonight I’ll take it away

Show me your strength

And live in solidarity

You’ve given my heart a voice

And shown me the devil’s eyes

But no more than once

Have I sacrificed my life
