So filled with joy for dreams come true
This day awaited all life through
A wedding ring, that kiss, a vow...
But promised love went wrong somehow.
The perfect mate she strove to be
Yet never good enough was she
And though she yearned a peaceful life
The only thing she found was strife.
Such tyranny she'd never known
Why did she reap what she'd not sown;
Down through the years all hope had died;
Sheer terror killed the love inside.
Beneath a reign of senseless rage
She found her soul trapped in a cage
Of fear, disgust and cursed that day
And wished it all would fade away.
"A nightmare, only, let this be
May I awake to find I'm free"
Yet fade, she knew, it never would;
She'd turn back time, oh, if she could...
Turn back time's hands to that one day
Take back her hand and run away
If she but knew what was to be
From by his side she'd surely flee.
