This day I make a vow to 
live again
This way I take a bow to 
leave the rain
And step into the sweet 
sunshine that's you
Then send unto the ill-run 
night what's due
Debt paid I'll trade my all to 
buy your soul
Lest fate fights daylight's 
hold to my lone 
And shroud your perfect 
frame so beautiful
And crowd your curd estate 
so bountiful.

The devil you are or a 
ghost you be
To make the heat that melts 
a rock as me
And send my sleeping heart 
to a clock race
That makes a cheetah seem 
at a slug pace
How then do I give my heart 
and keep it
And what then pumps 
the blood that 
keeps me fit?
Yet I would gladly pluck it as 
If breath lingers till it 
reaches your hand
The bloody prize of silent 
love that is
But some day won't be 
strong or sweet as this.
