In your white lace
And your wedding bells
You look the picture
Of contented new wealth

But from the on-looking fool
Who believed your lies
I wish this grave would open up
And swallow me alive

For the bitterest pill
Is hard to swallow
The love I gave hangs
In sad colored, mocking shadows

When the wheel of fortune broke
You fell to me
Out of gray skies
To change my misery

The vacant spot
Your beating heart took its place
But now I watch smoke
Leave my lips and fill an empty room

For the bitterest pill
Is hard to swallow
The love I gave hangs
In sad colored, mocking shadows

The bitterest pill
Is mine to take
If I took if for a hundred years
I couldn't feel any more hate

The bitterest pill
Is mine to take
If I took if for a hundred years
I couldn't feel any more hate

Now autumn's breeze blows
Summer's leaves through my life
Twisted and broken dawn
No days with sunlight

The dying spark
You left your mark on me
The promise of your kiss
But with someone else

For the bitterest pill
Is mine to swallow
The love I gave hangs
In sad colored, mocking shadows

The bitterest pill
Is mine to take
If I took if for a hundred years
I couldn't feel anymore ill

The bitterest pill
Is mine to take
If I took if for a hundred years
I couldn't feel anymore ill

The bitterest pill
Is mine to take
If I took if for a hundred years
I couldn't feel anymore ill

The bitterest pill
Is mine to take
If I took if for a hundred years
I couldn't feel anymore ill
