Wanderling no.3: “The Rift”

A young warlock uses dark magic to remove his own heart in order to prevent falling prey to the emotional vulnerability he perceives in others.  While separated from his heart the warlock grows cold and aloof while the organ becomes hairy, twisted and shrunken.  This song is sung from the perspective of the heart.

Story’s country of origin – UK

Based on the tale “The Warlock’s Hairy Heart” by J.K. Rowling, The Tales of Beedle the Bard, (London: Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, 2008), pp. 45-54.

V1
When we were both young
We did everything together
Breathing and beating as one
So deeply entwined
I was counting on forever
I couldn’t see that the rift had begun

L1
And you called me weak
When you told me the distance between us
Would be permanent, permanent, so

Chorus:
Cut me out ‘cause I will hurt you
Lock me up ‘cause I will make you fall
Turn your back ‘cause I’ll betray you
For love or loss I’d give my all

V2
When you walked away
I lay bleeding in the silence
Ragged and ravaged and raw
Abandoned at last
I dug deep and found defiance
There in the darkness I started to claw

L2
I know I can be stronger than this
I don’t need your affection to quicken my pulse
Anymore, anymore, oh

Chorus:
Cut me out ‘cause I will hurt you
Lock me up ‘cause I will make you fall
Turn your back ‘cause I’ll betray you
For love or loss I’d give my all

Bridge:
Now that you need me I’ve changed in the dark
If you embrace me I won’t let go until I’ve made my mark
You didn’t want me because I made you burn
I have been driven to madness waiting for you to return, oh

Chorus:
Cut me out ‘cause I will hurt you
Lock me up ‘cause I will make you fall
Turn your back ‘cause I’ll betray you
For love and loss I gave it all

Cut me out ‘cause I will hurt you
Lock me up ‘cause I will make you fall
Turn your back ‘cause I’ll betray you
For love or loss I’ll take it all
To feel it all again I’d risk it all
For love and loss at last we’ll lose it all
