The man with the charm
Can do you some harm.
If you don't watch out
He'll make you pout.
Legend has it he never grew old
except his soul's portrait
For every crime untold.
No one knows his secret
And all his friends are dead:
200 years later
No tears has he shed.
Look closely my friend.
The attic is his key
And the portrait is his heart.
But like every man
Knows not how to let evil depart.
So he keeps it under cover
For no one else to see
And hides behind a face
That's lit so angelically.
But sooner or later Dorian Grey
Will grow weary
Of all his heavy burdens
That no one was meant to carry.
Dorian Grey, you're an angel of light:
Handsome in the day, ugly in the night.
Dorian your sins will find you out.
Might take awhile but it's true,
Only God can reverse the curse
That you put on you.
And the only peace
You'll ever find
Is when you unveil your eyes... so blind.
