Down there in the ashes
There's gold and silver too
Dear sister, I try to share with you

Smug, you said, take your spoils away
And you broke the bridge on your side

You wither my trouble
And all I dream to do
With half smiles
Until I scream at you

Mad, you said, that's how you repay
But you broke the bridge on your side

And where am I, as I swallow your tears?
And the prince with the slipper appears
Do you hack at your heel, do I try not to feel?

I fail with my anger
And with my sympathy
I tremble so little left for me

Harsh, you said, now you walk away
But I left the gold for you to find
When you broke the bridge on your side
