lyrics

before our swan song, when the night's long
you raze the spires, you hurl them to the sea
lay waste to landscapes in my heartaches
the less you speak, the less you look at me

you take away my breath, my heart, my blood
desolation, devastate
you take away what's left, my light, my love
desolation, decimate

your name is winter, and we wither
your eyes are haggard, gazing at the sea
where are you, moonchild, is it too wild
to think that you could drown out my dreams

you take away my breath, my heart, my blood
desolation, devastate
you take away what's left, my light, my love
desolation, decimate

you move the stars
you turn my world
you do, you do

my mind is a fallacy
maladies colliding with the coldest reality
you had mastery
picked me up
i felt like i'd never come back to gravity
chased our lucky stars through galaxies
started families, we had fantasies
every ever after was happily
then we hit the apex and the apogee
i built you a palace, you banished me
called you majesty, you gave me amnesty
i was your canopy when the sun rained fire
and you spit my love back to me callously
my tragedy is my safe place
this rhapsody is my gateway
i embrace fate, even if it means catastrophe
and you take away my breath

you take away my breath, my heart, my blood
desolation, devastate
you take away what's left, my light, my love
desolation, decimate

you move the stars
you turn my world
you do, you do
