Lament of the Abandoned

Tell me what sort of evil has beset me
That I think of her while she forgets me?
How long? How long?
And what kind of fraud do you think that I'll be?
 
When all of the flaws that I can't hide within myself
Start coming out
And how long? How long?
 
In the eyes of love done wrong
And egregious sins that break our thrones
Will I say
"So long?"
When the rusted steel that ties our hands
Shatters us and breaks the bands
Of our love
Was I wrong?
 
Well I promised and you promised too
With burning hearts we said "I do"
But I've heard that time makes liars
Of us all
 
But I took your hand and you took my name
With solemn vows love sparked a flame
But I know that tears quench fires after all.
 
What sort of devil has taken me
 
In the eyes of love done wrong
And egregious sins that break our thrones
Will I say
"So long?"
When the rusted steel that ties our hands
Shatters us and breaks the bands
Of our love
Was I wrong?
