The Paper-Hearted Ghost

Your skin was as white as the fresh fallen snow
your eyes where so bright with a promising glow
your lips red as roses and your hair black as coal
I would have given my life but you´ve taken my soul
There was nothing on you a man wouldn´t admire
my heart made of paper and you´ve been playing with fire

I think I will never know why you chose me
but I know that I’m not the man I used to be
you knew you’re my queen without realm without crown
just one look from you turned my world upside down
You didn´t want a piece of me, you took the entire
my heart made of paper and you’ve been playing with fire

Your heart was so hungry and I was the feed
but soon you ate your fill and now I must bleed
you loved me forever but just for a while
you´ve broken my heart and my life with a smile
I´d never have dreamt of you being a liar
my heart made of paper and you’ve been playing with fire

I told you that I couldn’t live without you
you promised redemption it proved to be true
you shortened my suffering with a long knife
first she´d taken my love then she´d taken my life
where we loved each other my bed was my pyre
my heart made of paper and you´ve been playing with fire

Now I´m hunting the land I’m prowling around
or so many years I’ve been searching but found
not a trace, I confess it´s unfortunately true
I should be ashamed but I still do love you
There still is this damned so called burning desire
my heart made of paper and you´ve been playing with fire

Now you know my name as my story´s exposed
now you know why they call me the paper-hearted ghost
