do not forsake me, o my darling
though yr nothing like the sun
is every song a trial?
is every girl "the sun"?
have yr fingers ever broken?
have you ever seen them bleed?
is it lips that do like hands do?
is it every mouth to feed?
i know, 'tis true!

is there no ceremony?
no endless trust? no break of day?
in my hands, i hold the paper!
i hold the blood, i hold the names!

i know, 'tis true!
i'll never be a brick wall for you
but i STAY true
