Lover I am
An open book
Flick through my pages
Take a look
Most of them torn
And old
Except for our story
And I’ll write it
In my finest blood
For only you my love
Before the locust flood
Rains down
With longing
As I kneel

In my empire of love
Oh you could be my queen
In my empire of love
Eternally reign supreme
For the old queen
Has fallen

When jealous armies
Stormed the gates
Firing their arrows
Of lust and hate
Stealing her riches
And sealing her fate
And they took
The jewel
From her crown
And paraded it
Around town
And the whores
In wedding gowns
All tried to rule
Over me
And I cried

In my empire of love
See how they dance and sing
In my empire of love
Sorrow’s a happy king
But it’s you
Who can save me

For your pen is mightier
Than my sword
So sign your name
And praise your lord
And my crumbling kingdom
Your reward
And I’ll lay on
The mould feast
For the beauty
From the beast
And you’ll never be released
And shackled
To my aching heart

In my empire of love
Oh you will die
On my throne
My empire of love
Will turn you to dust and bone
