    The second part to the original "Garden of Sin"



    Left all alone in this place
    Void and nothingness
    Where were you when you said
    "we will always be together"?

    Lies
    Deceit

    Crushed by your heartless lips
    Killing me with your passion
    For another.... another lover

    Now I'm alone in this Garden of Sin....
    This garden you used to tend with such care
    This garden you used to play in
    This garden of sheets and rose petals

    Oh, how you used to dance under the rain
    Under the sprinklers of joy
    Under the robes of our happiness
    Where did you go?
    Where did your heart go?

    I left this place...
    I left this memory
    And now... its been replaced...

    Burning with passion once again
    I held her in my mind...
    I held this woman.. so innocent
    So gently did I tend to her garden
    So amorous was the astmospher

    She laid back and felt my heart
    I pulled back and felt hers too
    All in my dreams she was there
    This one night... I felt someone else
    Someone who wanted to feel love
    ... the one thing i had to offer

    Her garden needed tending...
    And as her lover... i did...
    The water was warm...
    And it was enough to quench her thirst
    Even just a little...

    This place that tortured me so...
    This place i was left alone
    This woman came to me...
    Her heart and soul was given to mine...
    She came to me with beautiful eyes
    Untouched by those ugly lies...
    Our hearts raced for the win...
    In this Garden of Sin

    Very nice! Really liked the imagery and metaphors here:

    Oh, how you used to dance under the rain
    Under the sprinklers of joy
    Under the robes of our happiness
