Along the rooftop he runs, gliding through
the night. But no one hears him on his way,
and yet as he gets closer, closer to
his goal, he thinks about his kid's ballet.
He silently arrives at your front door

Not hesitating, he prepares his edge.
His deed now done, he leaves to see his gal.

that will forgive and bear their father's sin.
