lyrics

what had I seen?
you caught my eye
like a hook on a train
I couldn't see you
for the devil you were
what was I to do
but come to you
and learn the hard way?
and if I knew
would I have stayed?

the road up ahead
was only as blind
as the warmth of your bed
the loss of my mind
for good feeling instead
what was I to do
but stay with you
in ecstasy
til the bitter end
of destiny?

'cause after all, I got what I came for

the wreckage behind
it don't speak a word
of the losses that bind
it sings like a bird
high and free
sad and proud
from the ash tree
