Grief Built The Taj Mahal

This song is by Prefab Sprout and appears on the album Crimson/Red (2013).

When the emperor lost his bride
At first he lay in bed and cried
Till she came to him in a dream
With words of consolation
Death is untrue -
I'm merely sleeping
I'm waiting for you
In a world way beyond weeping
Join me there soon
Until you're mine -
Build me a marble valentine
Let the world know -
Grief built the Taj Mahal

When the emperor rubbed his eyes
An azure morning filled the skies
Energized by his dream
The emperor was moved to summon his men
He ordered them find me the whitest of stone
- Let its radiance remind me of all I have lost
The source of my pain the joy that in time
I will regain
Let the world know -
Grief built the Taj Mahal

As for the cost -
What is the price of love unlost?
Let the world know -
Grief built the Taj Mahal
