Hell Ain’t Gonna Ruin My Love

I can’t best the Sun ’cause I don’t undo the Moon
Instead lit up ashes to do me every dream
I can’t let the Sun find the black spotted Moon

Evenings end while I journey to dead end’s secrets
I have a stalker from another island
It appears as a woman marooned
As a man who got fooled
As a tradesman deceived by tricks
As the shadow cast to tell the present’s naked tale to future and fortune

There’s no one else sitting in my room as I take to sleep
Except for the dream that left me
Bitter as it stays, it bears me through the night
Though it eases the pages that got tempered by ink
I can’t save the stars before they fall
And I can’t risk the sky lest they hum a dark tune

I’ll tell you the message in the bottle if it does not worry you
I keep tearing at the corners and the letters keep burning
It’s like a song sung in melody dying a swing every second, giving birth to ecstasy
