lyrics:

With the fire from the fireworks up above me
With a gun for a lover and a shot for the pain at hand
You run for cover in the temple of love
You run for another but still the same
For the wind will blow my name across this land

And the devil in the black dress watches over
My guardian angel walks away
Life is short and love is always over in the morning
Black wind come carry me far away

With the sunlight died and the night above me
With a gun for a lover and a shot for the pain inside
You run for cover in the temple of love
You run for another it's all the same
For the wind will blow and throw your walls aside

With the fire from the fireworks up above
With a gun for a lover and a shot for the pain
You run for cover in the temple of love
I shine like thunder cry like rain
And the temple of love grows old and strong
But the wind blows stronger cold and long
And the temple of love will fall before
This black wind calls my name to you no more

In the black sky thunder sweeping underground and over water
Sounds of crying weeping
Will not save your faith for bricks and dreams for mortar
All your prayers must seem as nothing
Ninety-six below the wave
When stone is dust and only air remains

In the temple of love
Shine like thunder
In the temple of love
Cry like rain
In the temple of love
Hear the calling
And the temple of love is falling down

Temple of love
Temple of love

I meant to watch this much sooner than now, and I'm now I'm kicking myself for not doing it because OMG LOVE. It has a very different feel than your usual vid (or that's how it seemed to me, anyway), and I ended up mesmerized! I'll have to rewatch this a few times so I can get the whole feel of it, but in the meantime, it was amazing!
