I Received a Letter

You promised a new world
You showed me and made me believe it did exist
And now you pretend you don't know me
And you say that world was a mess

I woke up and the world was gone
And I never felt so all alone
It was cold and dark without a dawn
When I woke up and the world was gone

That world you promised, you gave me honey
I was there every time we kissed
And when your world had enslaved me
That world you promised went a mist

I woke up and the world was gone
And I never felt so all alone
It was cold and dark without a dawn
When I woke up and the world was gone
