What ravages of spirit
Conjured this tempestuous rage?
Created you a monster
Broken by the rule of love

And fate has lead you through it
You do what you have to do
And fate has led you through it
You do what you have to do

And I have the sense to recognize
That I don't know how to let you go
Every moment marked with apparitions of your soul
I'm ever swiftly moving, trying to escape this desire

The yearning to be near you
I do what I have to do
The yearning to be near you
I do what I have to do

And I have the sense to recognize
That I don't know how to let you go
I don't know how to let you go

A glowing ember
Burning hot and burning slow
Deep within, I'm shaken by the violence
Of existing for only you

I know, I can't be with you
I do what I have to do
I know, I can't be with you
I do what I have to do

And I have the sense to recognize
But I don't know how to let you go
I don't know how to let you go
I don't know how to let you go
