When first we laid eyes,
I swore to no compromise,
till I felt my caress on your skin...
But how soon we were betrayed!
Your sister gave us away---
and your father came all unhinged.
But wait for the stone on your window,
I'll wait by the car,
and we'll go...
With your blood still warm on the ground,
I swear to the stars,
I will burn this whole city down.
All I heard was the shout
of your brother calling me out,
and you ran like a fool to my side.
Well, the shot--it hit hard.
And your frame went limp in my arms,
And an oath of love was your dying cry...
With your blood growing cold on the ground,
I will burn this whole city down!
