 * play a E the 1st time


1st verse & 3rd verse:

"by the turnstile beckons a damsel fair
 the face of melinda neath blackened hair
 no joy would flicker at her eyes
 brooding sadness came to a rise"

"and conceded pain in crumbling mirth
 a harlot of god upon the earth
 found where she sacrificed her ways
 that hollow love in her face"

"i took her by the hand to say
 all faith forever has been washed away
 i returned for you in great dismay
 come with me far away to stay"

 she spoke of her vices and broke the rhyme
 but baffled herself with the final line
 the promise is made but my heart is thine"
