about

this is the story of a tragic crime of passion in two parts.
a man catches his lover and best friend in bed and subsequently murders them both.
part 1 is his plea for an explanation of the events that took place that night. part 2 is his reconciliation with his lover from beyond the grave.
his lover's lines are indented in the lyrics below for clarity.

lyrics

are you there, my love?
can you hear my cries?
tell me what you see
through your lifeless eyes

will you ever know
how i've suffered so?
hold me tenderly
rid me of my woe

_____i can see you now
_____and what you've become
_____all the wickedness
_____to which you've succumbed

_____there was once a time
_____when you held me close
_____whispered quietly
_____all your loving prose

======CHORUS======

but if i've lost respect for my perception
what else can i trust?
and i admit i've jumped to the conclusion
that my world is false

_____darling, your denial only clouds the truth
but i feel soulless and empty
_____when do morbid thoughts make you so aloof?
when my senses overwhelm me
_____won't you think of me when you lose faith in living?
oh, i do

and when you spoke to me
i could feel your breath against my ear
and im haunted every night
by the final words you made me hear

====================

so if this is life
what's there left to live?
how can i go on
with no love to give?

_____don't you feel regret
_____what we had was real
_____don't let loveless fools
_____tell you how to feel

so when we shared warmth
_____and i let you in
did you truly care?
_____with everything within

but now that we've sinned
what am i to do?
_____please remember me
_____as i remember you

======CHORUS=====

but if i've lost respect for my perception
what else can i trust?
and i admit i've jumped to the conclusion
that my world is false

_____darling, your denial only clouds the truth
but i feel soulless and empty
_____when do morbid thoughts make you so aloof?
when my senses overwhelm me
_____won't you think of me when you lose faith in living?
oh, i do

and when you spoke to me
i could feel your breath against my ear
and im haunted every night
by the final words you made me hear

===================

_____though the years have tried
_____your sensitivity
_____don't abandon faith
_____in human empathy

has it been that long?
i can barely see
distant memories
they're escaping me

_____i had hoped by now
_____you would realize
_____that my final words
_____were meant to sympathize

yes, i understand
but i never knew
that you needed me
and i needed you

====================

and when you spoke to me
i could feel your breath against my ear
and im haunted every night
by the final words you made me hear
