This current will soon rise above our heads,
The all-consuming beast will soon be fed,
With memories of love and summer leaves,
We've given it a grave for you to lay down your wreath,

And give it up
before you're consumed by rage,
Now you're alone,
No longer confined to a cage,
By loyalty to some
unknown force,
It's over now your song will sing no more.

Now I've given up, because our love ain't getting older,
I should have let you know I loved you long before I told ya,
Now I'm sick of fighting I wasn't born to be a soldier,
I've left the ruins of our battlefield, never more to hold ya

And the waves will crash in with the tide,
Summer has died,
Nothing lasts forever I suppose,
This love will wither and die like the rose.
