I won't keep you in my heart now.
My heart, it is not whole.
I'll let you stay safely instead
Between my raw skin and my soul.
I'll hold you deep within me
Warm against my soul.
But never, never in my heart now
For my heart now has a hole.
Each pulse of mine shall carry you
You'll live deep within my flesh.
It's a happy farewell to the tormenting --
Start anew, afresh.
Former passions preyed on the heart
To you goes flesh, skin, eye.
O happily I'll crumble then
To where my heart does lie.
