Burn Down This Castle

It's a lovely power
Living in this castle.
But for my Love,
To wash out this rain,
It shall burn.
I’ll save you from the pain.

This pain,
Burden of power,
I shall let it burn.
Fall to ash, my castle,
Disappear with the rain.
I do this for you, my Love.

But, tell me, my Love,
Do you feel my pain,
As the ashes are taken by the rain?
Do you wish for a different power?
Had I built you a castle
Would mine still burn?

I burn
In the flames of love
That burnt down my castle.
All this pain,
Was it worth the power?
Letting me drown in the rain?

It carried me away, the rain,
As I watched my world burn.
Is this power
To you, my Love?
Do you enjoy others’ pain?
Is that why you had me burn my castle?

Curse this glass castle!
Bring back its rain!
I rather endure that pain,
Then stand in this fire. I burn
For you, my Love.
You have that power.

Do I regret building this castle as the old ashes burn?
No, I gladly drown in this rain for you, Love.
I’ll enjoy the pain, and grant you power.
