  In this beautiful nightmare
Love holds Death’s hand
And walks along a jaded path
The sky is gray and cries with all its fury
As the sun relinquishes its throne to the moon
Who dons her crown and smiles down
In this beautiful nightmare
I stand alone waiting for you
With a withered rose in hand
For Death’s scythe is love
And life is nothing more than a beautiful nightmare

Wow. True, though. The last line is a perfect ending.
