The Queen's Dagger (July 31 1997 / Vermont)
Cross My Heart
I'll cross my heart,
but I do not hope to die.
If the reaper takes me,
I will not run away,
neither will I invite him to stay.
Death is neither a friend, nor foe.
And yet he has so many enemies,
waiting to win a victory over him,
but he smiles coldly and knowingly,
for he knows that he cannot lose.
