Lyrics

my angel close your eyes, I’ll be your lover tonight
pitiful lullaby I’ll be your lover tonight

my own misery is taunting me
the air stings my lungs, I can barely see
wicked eyes surrounding me, the trees are
watching silently
I could try to run but baby, what’s the
point? I don’t see the point

I may never know why I let you go

my body is aching, I’m losing my mind
there’s nothing to hold onto
my angel close your eyes, I’ll be your lover tonight
I’m tired of trying, I’m sick of the waiting
if there’s nothing that I can do, a
pitiful lullaby to sing the tortured to sleep

we could settle down and change the end
nothing but time, start over again
all the little things you do that made me
fall in love with you
have led me to this, a bittersweet abyss,
a vexatious kiss

I may never know why I let you go

my body is aching, I’m losing my mind
there’s nothing to hold onto
my angel close your eyes, I’ll be your lover tonight
I’m tired of trying, I’m sick of the waiting
if there’s nothing that I can do, a
pitiful lullaby to sing the tortured to sleep

I will follow you into the night my darling eyes
I would do anything to be lying with you
as I watch you dream

Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita
mi ritrovai per una selva oscura,
ché la diritta via era smarrita.

esta selva selvaggia e aspra e forte__che nel pensier rinova la paura!

Io non so ben ridir com’ i’ v’intrai,__tant’ era pien di sonno a quel punto__che la verace via abbandonai

guardai in alto e vidi le sue spalle__vestite già de’ raggi del pianeta__che mena dritto altrui per ogne calle

così l’animo mio, ch’ancor fuggiva,__si volse a retro a rimirar lo passo__che non lasciò già mai persona viva.

I have been reborn
I have broken free! I’m free! I’m free!
you can’t deny me, do not defy me
I’m drunk on lust and sovereignty
abandon all hope for beyond time I stand
I have been reborn

darling, tonight we say goodbye
sing a touching lullaby and we’ll watch
the angels cry
