about

“Love never dies a natural death… Love dies because we don’t know how to replenish its source. Love dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. Love dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishing.” - Anais Nin

lyrics

in my darkest hour
never thought it'd come to this
and all the prophecies of doom
the spell is broken with a kiss

now you're going now the songs are flowing
I still ask myself why
I tried to hold and not let it slip
now there's something in my eye

and they said we'd be the death of each other
and they said we'd wonder why
now as my nails slip off the burning ledge
what a glorious way to die

what a glorious way to die

and so many reasons for forgetting
I just can't believe she's gone
our ivory tower came crashing down
and I did do nothing wrong

where was the faith you once had
when you kissed a frog and made a prince
I know I'm over-romantic
does my sentiment make you wince?

and they said we'd be the death of each other
and they said we'd wonder why
now as my nails slip off the burning ledge
what a glorious way to die

what a glorious way to die

you held my soul to ransom
and what a price to pay
I was tested, found wanting
and my self got in the way
what you love will kill you
that is true for me as well
I've been all around just lately
up in heaven, down in hell

and they said we'd be the death of each other
and they said we'd wonder why
now as my nails slip off the burning ledge
what a glorious way to die

what a glorious way to die
