The Burning of Troy

As Troy burned to the ground
So did our love crumble
Like the walls of Rome
Like a tyrant’s throne,
So did my heart fall to you.

As the face of the fair Helen
Launched a thousand ships to Troy
When I saw your face
My heart melted in place;
I would sail a fleet for you.

As the Greeks invaded the city
So doubt invaded my mind
As the Trojans bravely fought
I battled, for I thought
My heart belonged to you.

As the Trojans faced defeat
I, crying, watched you leave
But though the city fell to flames
And nothing left remains
I kept my love for you.

As Troy burned to the ground
So did our love crumble
Like the walls of Rome
Like a tyrant’s throne,
So did my heart fall to you.
