I will come here,

As if I’d never left,

See the ruins,

The things your hands have done.

I will watch you,

As if you’d never seen,

Blind eyes open,

The curse of will you chose.

 

And shame will fall on me,

Shame on my very name,

And tears will fall like pearls,

But never drown what I have done.

Yes, shame will fall on me,

Shame on my very name,

But all these gifts I gave,

Won’t free me from the things you’ve done.

 

See you kneel,

And speak to me in tongues,

Hear the words drop,

Like poison from your lips.

Say you take them,

Like jewels out of my mouth,

Can’t take them back

The words another wrote.

 

And shame will fall on me,

Shame on my very name,

And tears will fall like pearls,

But never drown what I have done.

Yes, shame will fall on me,

Shame on my very name,

But all these gifts I gave,

Won’t free me from the things you’ve done.
