I shall be thy lover
I am unlike a mortal lassFrom dreams of longing I have passedI came upon your lonely criesRevealed beauty to your eyesSo shun the world that you have knownAnd spend your nights within my own
You shall be known by other menFor your great works of voice and penYour inspiration has a costFor with me know your soul is lostI'll take your passion and your skillI'll take your young life quicker still
Through the kisses that I giveI draw from you that I will liveAnd though you think this weakness grandThe touch of death your lovers handYour will to live has come too lateCome to my arms and love this fate
I am a creature of the FeyPrepare to give your soul awayMy spell is passion and it is artMy song can bind a human heartAnd if you chance to know my faceMy hold shall be your last embrace..
