Lyrics

(Quealy)

A manor of glory; a castle for kings
Oh, what a tale she could tell, what a song she could sing
There were cracks in the ceiling and holes in the wall
Fright in the bedroom and a ghost in the hall
Soon everything falls, everything falls

Life goes on and it gets harder to tell
The loser who wins from the hero who fell
Here on this earth, you put her through hell
And when she’s gone, you’re wishing her well

You heard her confession; you could not forgive
In your world that’s so perfect, no mere mortal could live
Your power of scrutiny, guilty in part
Assembled a case that would tear her apart
She came with affection, she left with no heart

Life goes on and it gets harder to tell
The loser who wins from the hero who fell
Here on this earth, you put her through hell
And when she’s gone, you’re wishing her well

It’s all in the game, just a matter of time
A place for the blame is on everyone’s mind
A sculpture of love and a portrait of hate
Leapt out the window and ran through the gate
They were running from fate; fate was enraged

Life goes on and it gets harder to tell
The loser who wins from the hero who fell
Here on this earth, you put her through hell
And when she’s gone, you’re wishing her well
