The Naked Flame

She wears the silver talisman

This is the hand
That made her a silver talisman

This is the flame
That licked the hand
That made the silver talisman.

Here is the shame
That lit the flame
That licked the hand
That made her a silver talisman.

There lies the promise
And here is the shame
That lit the flame
That licked the hand
That made her a silver talisman

Though he sees, he is bound
There lies the promise
And here is the shame
That lit the flame
That licked the hand
That made her a silver talisman

And fate it has frowned
Though he sees, he is bound
There lies the promise
And here is the shame
That lit the flame
That licked the hand
That made her a silver talisman

His pride has been downed
And fate it has frowned
Though he sees, he is bound
There lies the promise
And here is the shame
That lit the flame
That licked the hand
That made her a silver talisman

Love is a sound
His pride has been downed
And fate it has frowned
Though he sees, he is bound
There lies the promise
And here is the shame
That lit the flame
That licked the hand
That made her a silver talisman.
