Dark, bitter ashes
In my soul doth dwell
Pain’s cruel black lashes
On my flesh doth swell

A turn wrong taken
A tale that’s untold
My spirit’s shaken
My love has been sold

I cry in the night
I wake from a dream
This scare I can’t fight
I can only scream

Now all seems far lost
And dread’s ever near
Paid a frightful cost
My only friend fear
