A candle flickers through the night

An eagle makes it's debut flight

Still fresh the taste of her last bite

Her numbness dulls her pain


Stood on the edge afraid to leap

Dry ducts betray the urge to weep

The promises they couldn't keep

Her numbness dulls her pain


When Cupid sent his arrow true

It pierced her heart when sailing through

She smiled through tears as he withdrew

Her numbness dulled her pain


The cherub failed the gods just laughed

She braces for the arctic draught

She navigates the seas by raft

Her numbness dulls her pain


Her voice resounding loud and clear

A happy life is drawing near

She heard the words she longed to hear

His love it dulled her pain
