You ripped my wings away from me,
As I was flying up so very high.
Stabbed me with a broken blade,
After I fell from the darkening sky.
Yet now you say you still love me,
But there is no way I can believe you.
What was once a perfect dream,
Came a nightmare that has become true.
All of my fondest memories of you,
Found at the bottom of my heart buried in dust.
With all of those smiles and laughter,
Fell too my undying trust.
You were once an angel to me,
But now you're someone I no longer knew.
You once told me you'd always love me,
But hell I guess thats in the dust too.
Nobody offers to hold me in the night,
When it was you that made me cry.
Now it hurts to put things behind,
And to tell you my final goodbye.
I'll lock the door to my heart,
hide the key under the tears I cried.
I'm blind and alone in this world now,
Now that I've emotionally died.

and this manipulation is also based upon:
When thou thy tears hast hidden, "Come back!", thou sayest -
There I soon am to be - but how am I to run when my bones, my heart!
Thou hast me bereaft!
