Without you there is no love, and I shall evermore wither alone

For death has sent his seraph to collect your soul

Without you there is no home, forevermore I shall roam

 

I know not of love anymore, bliss is unknown

My dreams have become nightmares for I have lost control

Without you there is no love, and I shall evermore wither alone

 

I plant kisses and flowers on your tombstone

Where I wish I could my plant my own soul

Without you there is no home, forevermore I shall roam

 

Death used to chill me to the bone

But death is now welcomed for it shall bury us together in one hole

Without you there is no love, and I shall wither alone

 

I have become foul and wretched like a crone

A debt my beauty had to pay, what a sad toll

Without you there is no home, forever more I shall roam

 

I wish I could once again call you my own

But soon not even death and his seraph will stop us from joining into one soul

Without you there is no love, and I shall wither alone

Without you there is no home, forevermore I shall roam
