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,

Our perfect harmony.

 Friend, O friend of mine,

Why, why would you hurt me so?

To stab me in the heart, and twist the knife,

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?
