I can't know the hell you love
But I know you've had enough
Some baptize in water
Some in flames

What has life done to you
All you ever wanted was someone to run to you
There's more to life than what makes you cry

Don't you give me a reason to mourn
Look into my eyes with all your hate and scorn
I'll remove the crown of sorrow which you have been adorned
But don't you give me a reason to mournI can't know the hell you love
But I know you've had enough
Some baptize in water
Some in flames

What has life done to you
All you ever wanted was someone to run to you
There's more to life than what makes you cry

Don't you give me a reason to mourn
Look into my eyes with all your hate and scorn
I'll remove the crown of sorrow which you have been adorned
But don't you give me a reason to mournI can't know the hell you love
But I know you've had enough
Some baptize in water
Some in flames

What has life done to you
All you ever wanted was someone to run to you
There's more to life than what makes you cry

Don't you give me a reason to mourn
Look into my eyes with all your hate and scorn
I'll remove the crown of sorrow which you have been adorned
But don't you give me a reason to mourn
