O’ how cruel are you, love!
You torment me with your song,
You wrap my heart in your arms.
You remind me of my misery,
You fill my heart with fire,
You set me ablaze once again.
O’ how I wish to be alive once again.
To feel the drive on set by love
The deepest depths of my soul on fire.
To sing again a new song
To be relieved of this dark misery
To find myself in another’s arms
O’ how I long to be in loving arms
To feel the love of a princess again
A love that can banish my misery.
How I desire to feel that love
To hear that beautiful song
To feel that burning fire.
My soul and heart are like fire
The flames wrap my love in its arms
the warmth sings out its song
But no, love evades me again
She denies me the joy of love
She allows the growth of my misery.
She fills me with more misery
She suffocates my fire.
This cruel mistress love,
She destroys me time and time again
She holds my destruction in her song
I try to deafen the song
I try to shut out the misery
I rebel again and again
I try to stoke the fire
I search for loving arms
But every time I’m avoided by love
Again there goes my fire
I try to escape the misery in another’s arms
But no I hear the cruel song of love.
