I have known a life bitter,
Days of pain I've lived through,
Since I took the life from you.
Yes, I was your killer.
My only love I slew,
With a sharp dagger,
I spilt the blood of my children's mother.
Watched as her soul,
Poured to the floor.
And I didn't mean to.
Others kill because of hate
And because of greed,
I killed because I loved her!
I couldn't let her leave me for another,
She promised to be my soul mate.
1967,5th of July
Many years have passed,
I can't forget the night I held you last;
