I have feared you, loved you,

I have feared you, loved you, done as you've said,

I have feared you, loved you, done as you've said, but why is it

I have feared you, loved you, done as you've said, but why is it that I

I have feared you, loved you, done as you've said, but why is it that I have become your slave?

Through decisions untold

Through decisions untold and despair unnumbered,

Through decisions untold and despair unnumbered, I fought my way here

Through decisions untold and despair unnumbered, I fought my way here to this pedestal,

Through decisions untold and despair unnumbered, I fought my way here to this pedestal, away from my own city,

Through decisions untold and despair unnumbered, I fought my way here to this pedestal, away from my own city, to give you

Through decisions untold and despair unnumbered, I fought my way here to this pedestal, away from my own city, to give you the child

I should not have given my power

I should not have given my power over to you.
