"..It's a very mysterious thing,
that electric thing that happens,
and then the agony that can follow.
The troubadours celebrate the agony.
of the love, the sickness the
doctors cannot cure, the wounded...
The wound is the wound of my passion
and the agony of my love for this creature.
The only one who can heal me
is the one who delivered the blow."
