Memories, still buried deep
Haunt you in your restless sleep

Tucked away inside your heart
This we knew right from the start

Our lives would never be as one
Betrothed to yet another’s son

I couldn’t hide, he saw my face
Into the dungeon, the only place

He knew to leave me, there to die
Then tell his tales, lie after lie

Of how I broke his heart in two
Because my love was never true

Now buried in the castle keep
I lie here in eternal sleep

And call to you, my only love
Can you hear me from above?

Will you come to stay with me?
Yes! Fulfill our destiny!

Where thorns replace the reddest rose
There, we shall lie, in sweet repose
