I'm ever so lost
I can't find my way
Been searching, but I have never seen
A turning, a turning from deceit


'Cause the child roses like
Try to reveal what I could feel
I can't understand myself anymore
'cause I'm still feeling lonely
Feeling so unholy


'Cause the child roses like
Try to reveal what I could feel
And this loneliness
It just won't leave me alone, oh no

I'm fooling somebody
A faithless path I roam
Deceiving to breathe this secretly
A silence, this silence I can't bear


'Cause the child roses like
Tries to reveal what I could feel
And this loneliness
It just won't leave me alone, oh no
And this loneliness
It just won't leave me alone

A lady of war
A lady of war
