    "Face Of Melinda" Lyrics


    By the turnstile beckons a damsel fair
    The face of Melinda neath blackened hair
    No joy would flicker in her eyes
    Brooding sadness came to a rise

    Words would falter to atone
    Failure had passed the stepping stone
    She had sworn her vows to another
    This is when no-one will bother

    And conceded pain in crumbling mirth
    A harlot of God upon the earth

    Found where she sacrificed her ways
    That hollow love in her face

    Still I plotted to have her back
    The contentment that would fill the crack
    My soul released a fluttering sigh
    This day fell, The darkness nigh

    I took her by the hand to say
    All faith forever has been washed away
    I returned for you in great dismay
    Come with me, Far away to stay

    Endlessly gazing in nocturnal prime
    She spoke of her vices and broke the rhyme
    But baffled herself with the final line
    My promise is made but my heart is thine
