Can you not reclaim
What you have seen this night?
With your forbidden eyes of lust
You carry me out without a cause of just.
Your forbidden eyes have turned away
Until the end of another lost day.
Can you not believe
The reminiscences of my days?
With your forbidden eyes of hate
You stand upon me like my own fate.
Again and again I seem to find
I've lost my mind! I've lost my mind!
Can you not remember
All the ways I've shown you?
With your forbidden eyes of a lost soul.
You turn around just to watch me go.
Until the end of the golden age
When people tend to release their rage.
Can you not redeem your trust
I have ever given you?
With your forbidden eyes of regret
I teach you now like I taught you then.
I cannot ever seem to find
What is really, truly mine.
Can you not attend to me
And see that I'm not really okay?
With your forbidden eyes to take
Watch for me until your end of days.
Until death do we part,
What a beautiful art!
Can you not release
The memories we share?
While your forbidden eyes watch me leave
I will glance back once more, so you know me.
Memories forgotten, but always known
To be true, in this life's zone.
