lyrics

Famine

I remember the day the moment we first met:
the fear on your face and the blood on your young breast
I washed the gutter’s filth from those beautiful eyes
and when you first smiled I learned how to die

I remember the day the moment you loved me:
the glow on your face and the ring on your finger
the diamonds on your gown sparkled as we danced
and everyone knew that I am in love with you

I remembered day the moment you left me:
when I learned the words famine and hungry
and those diamonds on your gown you sold them for pennies
and bought for yourself men who would break your heart
at least one of us remembers the girl in the gutter
but how can I save you again if you won’t remember

Ezekiel 16
