Misheard Lyrics:
I could beg for forgiveness as these foul winds hole on
But my soul is breached and black
Perhaps this is just where I belong

She turns to a wraith!
To my face
I am cursed to return with face
For since I have wrought
Her eyes ablaze, she turns me away
Yeah, mercy lied
Original Lyrics:
I could beg for forgiveness as these foul winds howl on
But my soul is wreathed in black
Perhaps this is just where I belong
And finally I see her face
My precious darling how I want to hold you
But as my hands approach her face
She turns to a wraith to rule my fate
I am cursed to eternally face the sins I have wrought
Her eyes ablaze, she tells me I will never see light
