lyrics

They locked her high above in a tower
It was overlooking the gallows tree
They had a family priest and on a moveable feast
Well he swallowed the surviving key

They told her the reach of each and every ambition
Must terminate there with her maiden name
You should’ve seen her grieve for the prince of thieves
His advances they would all defame


I don’t wanna reassemble my heart
If it’s bleeding over you
I don’t wanna reassemble my heart
If it’s broken in two
I don’t wanna reassemble my heart
If it’s bleeding over you


Now levitation never was his strong point
But on the old oak beyond the tower
Well there his eyes caught sight of a hangman’s might
He drew the leash suspended by its power

She said “We’ll be damned for such a desecration”
But common sense succumbed to rare desire
And this old hanging rope it was their only hope
He lassoed a noose around her spire

I don’t wanna reassemble my heart
If it’s bleeding over you
I don’t wanna reassemble my heart
If it’s broken in two
I don’t wanna reassemble my heart
If it’s bleeding over you

He climbed the keep and he begged her for to haul him in
But every sight it was trained for to shoot them down into the night

She never feared their fire, because in each cross wire
There were two minor stars shooting into the light

I don’t wanna reassemble my heart

I don’t wanna reassemble my heart
No I don’t wanna reassemble my heart
If it’s bleeding over you
If it’s broken in two

No I don’t wanna reassemble my heart
If it’s bleeding over you
If it’s broken in two
If it’s bleeding over you
If it’s broken in two
