Josephine
Where can you be now?
Again the sun is rising
On my troubled heart

Don't deny you know
You and I
Are the making of what fate
Just can't pull apart

My sweet Josephine
Won't you come and marry me?
I got every kind of love
That you will ever need
Dying here on bended knees

Sheets of rain
Cold and gray
Run down the page
As I write your name

With just the weight
Of your silence now
Crashing all around me
While I scream it out loud

My sweet Josephine
Won't you come and marry me?
I got every kind of love
That you will ever need
Dying here on bended knees

Like a raven in a cage
The blood of my birth just won't wash away
Like a stitched together doll
My feet to the flame as I fall on the blade
For someone else's pain
For someone else's pain

Rivers of
Black ink flood
The tapestry of flesh and blood
Around my frame

A living shrine
Just for you if you'll be mine
A golden band upon your hand
Leave this endless winter behind

My sweet Josephine
Won't you come and marry me?
I got every single kind of love
That you will ever need
Dying here on bended knees
Dying here on bended knees
Dying here on bended knees
My Josephine
