Blood and Ashes

I spent some time around you
Caught up within your sphere
And I wanted to surround you
With my aura, to protect you
From your fears

But all the spells I cast
And all the love I gave
And still you led my heart
To a shallow grave

I would have given you my world
And still you wanted more
But you give me nothing
But blood and ashes
I tried to be all things for you
When you desired more
But you give me nothing
But blood and ashes

I fell deeper within you
Your sparkling eyes beckoned me
And I spent nights in the graveyard
Wishing that you'd come around
And feel the same for me

But all the spells I cast
And all the love I gave
And still you led my heart
Into a shallow grave

I would have given you my world
And still you wanted more
But you give me nothing
But blood and ashes
I tried to be all things for you
When you desired more
But you give me nothing
But blood and ashes

And now I end this charade
Begone forever more
'Cause you give me nothing
But blood and ashes
