Hand of Sorrow - Within Temptation

The child without a name grew up to be the hand
To watch you, to shield you, or kill on demand
The choice he made he could not comprehend
He's got a grim secret they had to command

He's torn between his honor and the true love of his life
He prayed for both but was denied

So many dreams are broken and so much we sacrifice
Was it worth the ones we loved and had to leave behind
So many years have past toward a noble land of lies
Will all our sins be justified?

The curse of his powers tormented his life
Obeying the crown was a sinister crime
His soul was tortured by love and by pain
He surely would flee but the oath made him stay

He's torn between his honor and the true love of his life
He prayed for both but was denied

So many dreams are broken and so much we sacrifice
Was it worth the ones we loved and had to leave behind
So many years have past toward a noble land of lies
Will all our sins be justified?

Please forgive me for the sorrow
For leaving you in fear
For the dreams we had to silence
That's all there'll ever be
Still I'll be the hand that saves you
Though you'll not see that it is me

So many dreams are broken and so much we sacrifice
Was it worth the ones we loved and had to leave behind
So many years have past toward a noble land of lies
Will all our sins be justified?
