about

The music for this song was inspired by the great San Francisco band *Waycross*. Waycross had a beautiful and powerful song that was one chord throughout. I tried to match that, but I couldn’t get by with less than 4 chords. Victor and Jonathan pulled through for us once again on this one. Aces job by all – CRX

lyrics

One dark and stormy evening
You gave yourself to me
We lingered in our bed of sin
And laughed how free we’d be

From rules meant for mere mortals
Not for the likes of us
But then the winds of gossip bent
Our love into mistrust

Oh, what purpose does it serve?
We all get what we deserve
And I shall never love again —
What purpose does it serve?

How spitefully the tongues did wag
And how our hearts did rue
For you and I were promised, dear
But to others — oh, ’tis true!

We longed to be together
In a world apart from shame
But when our sin came home again
It tainted both our names

Oh, what purpose does it serve?
We all get what we deserve
And I shall never love again —
For what purpose does it serve?

You said our dreams was stronger
Than the earthly bonds of law
And we should be exhaulted
Despite our fleshly flaws

For we thought our love was ageless
But in time it fell to dust
And now by Fortune parted
We find it's merely lust

And what purpose does it serve?
We all get what we deserve
For I shall never love again —
What purpose does it serve?

Yes, what purpose does it serve
Under heaven’s blessed curve?
Oh, I shall never love again —
For what purpose does it serve?

Yes, I shall never love again —
For what purpose does it serve?
