sold my soul for you.
On the battlefield of Sincerity,
I purged both our foes from existence.
Lust and Temptation divinely punished.
Yet, for you, my soul exchanged
in the wake of our demise.

Our downfall through Time,
the lasting threat.
Could it be so glorious as to withstand
for us to marvel at our resolve.
So I sell my soul for you.

I sell it for us,
to gather the needed strength to overcome
just one final obstacle.
So take this heartfelt farewell.
Take it with care, and know that
I shall return.
Take it with care, and know that
I sold my soul for you.

This need not be the end.
Our story has chapters to come.
Our battle is only at an eve of receding passion,
whose sun will dawn once again.
Our song, still a virgin to the ears of Time.
Our love need not lie dormant
in the shadow of Fate.
Allow the seed we have planted to grow.
It will blossom, and I shall return
to harvest the fruits of our faith.
I sell my soul for you,
and I sell my soul to you.
And in return, a promise,
that you will keep it with you
for when I return.
