I found out
Two great composers
We're lovers for forty years
Nobody told me in the wasteland

I needed to have water
In my chest was
A thirsty horse
Who needed

I followed paths
That took me to lost
When I couldn't read

It's too late to runaway
There's no hope of rebirth
I'm in a growing darkness
Full of shame and guilt
Looking back at all the people
I hurt

Destined as I am
I live to punish myself
