i know i brought you to this place,
led you to this fire...
i opened up the doors of hell,
tempted you with desire.
i wanted more than i could give
and more than i could see,
and somewhere in your trusting heart
you put your faith in me.
and there i see that my own choice,
my hope and selfishness,
has brought you to this sacrifice
and given you distress.
it must be hard to see the ash
and not call out to blame
and if it were my life in smoke
i know i'd feel the same.
but somehow even here and now,
with all the strife and pain,
i plead with you to walk the coals
and look at this as gain...
and should this prove too much for you
and leave you feeling numb,
i can't regret the way i've loved
and sorry just won't come.
