Heartbreak of the Spirit

I promised you always,

And you promised me,

Nothing would ever come between us,

And break our harmony.

But then you believed,

Another over me,

And so was shattered,

O friend, why would you hurt me so?

Why do you believe her, over me?

Why break our perfect harmony?

O friend, tell me why,

O friend, why would you hurt me so?

O fiend! O fiend! Begone!

I do not wish to talk,

With the face of a woman but mouth of a child,

O fiend! O fiend! Begone!

The heartbreak of the spirit,

The dissolving of trust,

The loss of a sister,

The loss of thoughts just,

O friend, O sister, O fiend, tell me why?

Why, O why, friend, sister, fiend,

Did you let our happiness die?
