By the turnstile beckons a damsel fair
No joy would flicker in her eyes

Failure had passed the stepping stone
This is when no-one will bother
And conceded pain in crumbling mirth
Found where she sacrificed her ways

The contentment that would fill the crack
This day fell, the darkness nigh
I took her by the hand to say
I returned for you in great dismay

She spoke of her vices and broke the rhyme
My promise is made but my heart is thine
