Lyrics:By the turnstile beckons a damsel fair
The face of Melinda 'neath blackened hair
No joy
would flicker in her eyes
Brooding sadness came to a rise

Words would falter to
atone
Failure had passed the stepping stone
She had sworn her vows to another
This is
when no-one will bother

And conceded pain is crumbling mirth
A harlot of God upon
the earth
Found where she sacrificed her ways
That hollow love in her
face

Still I plotted to have her back
The contentment that would fill the
crack
My soul released a fluttering sigh
This day fell, the darkness nigh

I
took her by the hand to say
All faith forever has been led stray
I returned for you in
great dismay
Come with me far away to stay

Endlessly gazing in nocturnal
prime
She spoke of her vices and broke the rhyme
But baffled herself with the final
line
My promise is made but my heart is thine
