I Cheat The Hangman Lyrics

The days grow short
the nights are gone
Since you were here
I can't go on
I cried for you
to no avail
Now my life runs cold
when the night winds wail

But I cheat the hangman
(cheated him many times before)
The bell that tolls the hour
has turned sweet lips to sour
Yes I cheat the hangman
(and even when life has flown away)
I leave a kiss behind

The rain that fell
upon my stone
Like tears you cry
I shared alone
I walk the night
I cannot sleep
The love you spend
you cannot reap

But I cheat the hangman
(cheated him many times before)
The bell that tolls the hour
has turned sweet lips to sour
Yes I cheat the hangman
(and even when life has flown away)

I leave a kiss behind
the glow of love will shine
Lighted windows stare
at the lonely stranger
there returning home
Only lighted windows stare
at the lonely stranger
there returning home

Doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo

I leave a kiss behind
the glow of love will shine
Lighted windows stare
at the lonely stranger
there returning home
Only lighted windows stare
at the lonely stranger
there returning home

Doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo ...

It sounds like he committed sin, in that he cheated his love.forsaken his own belief , yet he cheats the consequences of sin death. Deep inside he is sill dead,but made alive. I don't know you tell me now , why such a lovely tone?
