Your eyes tantalizing, send my heart to run
My heart, cold and hard soften by my lady
Days come and go, but feelings remain
Must I succumb to her beauty?
Must I let myself begin such ardent emotion?
For fear of decadence, on cold feet and lost
This persuasive heart against thoughts at despair
The freedom from the prison of eternal solitude
You appeared out of nowhere
I found you and felt relieved
Love found a home to stay
Your very existence occupies the void in me
Manipulating my illusion of sadness and regret
This feeble heart zealous fervor longing for love
