The Ballad of Saint Valentine

It weren't for lack of faith
Or the sweet bye and bye
For love's sake and love alone
Bishop Valentine would die

I am the higher law, the Emperor
You will bow to I and only I
Who dares go against me?
Bishop Valentine must die

To Valentinus man's greatest strength
To the Emperor a weakness, a lie
For his beliefs and his blessings
Bishop Valentine did die

Hate be no match for dogged hope
A roar for a lover's sigh 
For those who still believe
Saint Valentine won't die
