the shadows of the night,
from the dimmest light,
tip-toes and a heavy-hearted path
sin was amongst the house to last.
and knuckling my hands,
love and wedding bands,
sleep alone in this house of shame.
lack of affection is to blame.
simple kiss was upon my lips.
out it fades, the candle drips.
woes, they may come and go,
I’m alone again, still he does not know.
