Lyrics


Martyr

I've been a martyr for love

And I will die in the flames

As I draw my last breath

As I'm closing on death

I will call out your name


I've been a martyr for love

Nailed up on the cross

While you're having your fun

As the damage is done

I'm assessing the cost


I knew what I was letting myself in for

I knew that I could never even the score


I've been a martyr for love

I need to be by your side

I have knelt at your feet

I have felt your deceit

Couldn't leave if I tried


I've been a martyr for love

Tortured every hour

From the day I was born

I've been moved like a pawn

By the greatest of powers


I knew that I would have to suffer in vain

Aware that I would never outgrow the pain


I've been a martyr for love
