MY DYING BRIDE – A Secret Kiss lyrics

I once held a secret hand
And the women cried
Will you please hold us?
Then left

She once took a secret kiss
From the poor boy’s lips
As a last request

Awake
Wide awake
Awake
Wide awake

Holy special child
Could not even smile
Holy special child
Could not even smile

I once heard a tolling bell
And the women cried
Can you please save us?

Awake
Wide awake
Awake
Wide awake

He once wrote down holy words
In a golden book that may save us all
Then left

Wide awake
Wide awake
Awake
Wide awake
