Threnody – Lyrics

I made my decision
While the rain drops like diamonds fell
From an angry crystal sky.

Full of conviction
I swore by all I knew
You’d be the last to say goodbye.

Now upon this faded ground
I stand corrected.
Of all the loss I’ve found
You’re the one I least expected.

Now even as the stars fall from the sky
I can’t deny
I thought you were
I thought you were
I thought you were the one.

Sunbeams turn to shadows in your eyes.
Still I can’t cry.
I gave you all I had inside.
I gave you all I had inside.

I saw you like a vision.
Though I tried to turn my head
You drew me like a moth to fire.

So I made you my religion
And I sacrificed my heart
Upon the altar of desire.

In the artificial light
You mesmerized me.
When the illusion was revealed
It was your darkness most surprised me.

Now even as the stars fall from the sky
I can’t deny
I thought you were
I thought you were
I thought you were the one.

Sunbeams turn to shadows in your eyes.
Still I can’t cry.
I gave you all I had inside.
I gave you all I had inside.
I can’t deny
I thought you were
I thought you were
I thought you were the one.

Sunbeams turn to shadows in your eyes.
Still I can’t cry.
I gave you all I had inside,
All my ambition, all my pride.
I loved you even when you lied,
I loved you only when you lied.

[Instrumental]

I’ve even now a longing
To turn out the bitter light
And forget this illumination.

To return to how I saw you
When I blindly gave you all my heart
And all my adoration.

Now these tattered dreams are all
That remains of your feigned affection.
Those who swear that truth is beauty
Never glimpsed your cruel reflection.

Now even as the stars fall from the sky
I can’t deny
I thought you were
I thought you were
I thought you were the one.

Sunbeams turn to shadows in your eyes.
Still I can’t cry.
I gave you all I had inside,
And yet I loved you only when you lied.
