Symphony X - The Sacrifice Lyrics

Your eyes, singing to me sweet lullabies
while you lay there in submission
Forbidden desire alone in the moonlight
hearts afire - burn away our inhibitions

When the stars lose their fire
And night steals the morning away
Forever and a day
I will stay, I will stay here with you my love

Sacrifice, a heartbeat away from paradise
All my reason's giving way to temptation
Fear and shame - looking for someone else to blame
We're devoured by these fruitless accusations

With every fleeting breath I take
Maybe our love was a mistake
Eternal life - I'd trade it for
One moment beside you...

When the stars lose their fire
And night steals the morning away
Forever and a day
I will stay, I will stay here with you my love

When the stars lose their fire
And night steals the morning away
Forever and a day
When the stars lose their fire
And night takes the morning away
Forever and a day
I will stay, I will stay here with you my love...
