My Soul-mate is Dead (Just Like My Heart)

I looked up and saw an angel on high
An angel that taught my soul how to fly
Like Pegasus riding a beam of light
The Garden of Eden spread in our sight

I looked up and saw the sign of the times
Nailed to a crucifix for His crimes
And though I live in a black wilderness
Still I never thought it would come to this

My Soul-mate is dead!
Just like my heart
My Soul-mate is dead!
Must two as one part?     x2

Happy memories that bring only tears
Lock me shackled and chained with my fears
Gardens we walked through are twisted with thorns
The moon that blest us now proudly wears horns

How can a pure swan fly with broken wings?
How can a dancer dance when no one sings?
Now I cry beneath the sky where I flew
Lost and abandoned with phantoms like you

My Soul-mate is dead!
Just like my heart
My Soul-mate is dead!
Must two as one part?    x2


The clergy is ugly beneath its cloak
Wallowing in brimstone ashes and smoke
Leaving my orphan to die in the cold
Sighing with hearts twenty centuries old

The clergy led my Bright One to the grave
They silenced her soul because she was brave
They lead me blind through the spidery dark
I too died the day God forgot His lark

My Soul-mate is dead!
Just like my heart
My soul-mate is dead!
Must two as one part?   x4
