Eternal Sin

This song is by All Living Fear and appears on the album Home Too Soon (2003).

Your sweet voice trickles to my ear like honey spiked with glass
And the vaguest hint of compromise still proves to be my last
My hopes and doubts of recompense rest on your silver tongue
The silky tone you say goodbye awakes the nightmare past
The words you use with soft caress still drive the dagger home
Remind me of the life I lost and all the damage done
The scars I bear, both in and out remind me of the pain
I caused that night I gave my heart to you to take my name

You take the same pill now yourself to ease your wretched hand
Welcome to the real world where life is just a sham
Welcome to the darkest depths where hopelessness prevails
When one door closes, another shuts, there's truth if all else fails

We live our lives so separately yet tread the same old road
Our destiny of emptiness that fate's already sowed
The cross we bear upon our back burns deep under the skin
The carnage caused by love alone is my eternal sin

It's better to have never loved than once to love and lose
The gift of life, so precious, rare is not one I would choose
