The boy with the thorn in his side
A murderous desire for love
And still they don't believe me?
Still they don't believe me?
Will they ever believe me?
Will they ever, they ever, believe me?

Behind the hatred there lies
How can they see the Love in our eyes
And after all this time
And if they don't believe us now
And when you want to live
Where do you go?

Oh no
