lyrics

A long forgotten place / overgrown, in disrepair
Though wild roses leave a trace of sweet fragrance in the air
It’s been 5 and 20 years since a breathing soul has walked the halls
In the quiet you may just glimpse a shade along the papered walls
Among the cemetery stone, her broken heart will never mend
She’s been in-between before; she’ll be in-between again
Of lavender and thyme / and the slightest brush of lace
In the midst of dust and grime / there’s a sad and veiled face
At the altar standing there / a bride waiting all in white
She didn’t falter in despair when she took up his knife that night
Among the crosses and the bone / abandon heart and bitter end
She walks the rooms alone / at Sorrow Hall beyond the bend
She’s been in-between before; she’ll be in-between again
Still tethered to her scorn / in mist and memory
in the satin she had worn / an eternal bride-to-be
She laid there in the cold in a belladonna haze
And bartered breath and soul / in a thousand desperate ways
Like the churchyard’s broken stone / her heart may never mend
She walks the rooms alone / at Sorrow Hall beyond the bend
She’s been in-between before; she’ll be in-between again
