A crimson heart bleeds, as the blood runs cold
Ruby red droplets, kiss the cheeks of the bold
The golden dust rises and falls, with a tear drop

As the crimson heart bleeds another tear with ever heartbeat

Lost in the silvery ponds of long lost love,
  the crimson heart turns from red into rust
As crystal clear tear drops fall, then turns into dust
And the scarlet heart no longer beats as it should
Broken and unprepared another tear drop hits the dust

The silvery grey clouds now cover the moon, as it must
So the dying heart can now heal and learn how to trust
To help stop the tears and help the heart recover its blush
The silvery grey clouds bring calm as it paints over the rust
