Be still my beating heart
Today the day I die
Stay close and listen hard
Be still my beating heart

History is made of men like me
Built up on chance not by greater deeds
Not by kings at all
I won't be mourned and I won't be saved
I won't be recalled for the things I've made
If I'm recalled at all
But I've tasted love and I've tasted sin
And I've lived for the most somewhere inbetween
I've no regrets at all
So do not mourn and do not cry
Just give me a stone and a place to lie
And remember me

Be still my beating heart
Kill kill the one you love
Today the day it starts
Be still my beating heart
