Black feelings deep in the heart of me
Black ashes swallowed, they're choking me
Black feathers I throw in the fire for you
I'm not above a little voodoo
Black shadows cast on our history
Black humour, a sign of my sanity
Black memoirs, a season in hell for you
I shudder to think what I did for you

Don't you know just who I am?
I'm no ordinary man

Black candles flicker in hope for me
Black curtains fall on this tragedy
My black eyes burning a hole in you
My God I saw into the heart of you

Black mirror reflects what's become of me
Black ravens, portents of my sanity
Black roses, my rare and final gift for you
My black heart still keeps a place for you

You don't know what's slipped through your hands
Perhaps one day you'll understand
You know fuck all about the pain
You better hope I don't explain
You'll never realise the shame
Now that it's all gone up in flames


Thank you once again my love
For turning everything to black
My best wishes, worst intentions
Your ever hating Jacques
I left everything unread
But as you know it came out black
