April 27

His Infernal Majesty

And I
I came for the ride
Held into sunshine
Looking for his pride

And I
I came for the light
But I have been drowning
Into my pride

I
Came
For
Him
The day of the funeral
I was by his side
The day of the funeral
I did watch him die

And I
I looked at him crying
Through the very end
He chose for himself

And I
I stepped to that side
So cold and divine
Holding his hand

I
Came
For
Him
The day of the funeral
I was by his side
The day of the funeral
I did watch him die
And through a kiss
My tears and some bliss
As painful as a fist
To the eye of the storm
End of the story
And all the glory

I
Came
For
Him
His Infernal Majesty

The king lays his crown
There will be no dawn
Wounds wide open

And I
I Had to say goodbye
To the king and his light
Which had been my pride

And he
Had my sympathy
‘Cause all love must die
The same goes for pride

I
Came
For
Him
The day of the funeral
I was by his side
The day of the funeral
I did watch him die

End of the story
