Your flickering candle cast your confession upon the congregation that sat enthralled
As you sobbed your tale wet with tears and regrets
Of when you danced to the lonely world's song
When you danced to the lonely world's song

You walked all the way here from the garden of Eden
Where you left your lover in his grave
You offered him you inheritance but he built his own mansion at
The bottom of a boiling lake
Yea at the bottom of a boiling lake

There's guilt in your heart and blood on your hands
There's a widower standing in the tide
Although one dream is dead tomorrow you'll wed
Another groom willing to give up his life
Yea another groom willing to give up his life

Now the chapel is empty, your candles burned down
You're no longer sure where you belong
But you were as innocent and naive as Adam and Eve
When you danced to the lonely world's song
When you danced to the lonely world's song
Yea when you danced to the lonely world's song
