"Someone Like You"

"I heard that you're settled down
That you found a girl and you're married now.
I heard that your dreams came true.
Guess she gave you things I didn't give to you.

Old friend, why are you so shy?
Ain't like you to hold back or hide from the light.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it.
I had hoped you'd see my face and that you'd be reminded
That for me it isn't over.

Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,"
Yeah.

You know how the time flies
Only yesterday was the time of our lives
We were born and raised
In a summer haze
Bound by the surprise of our glory days

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited
But I couldn't stay away, I couldn't fight it.
I had hoped you'd see my face and that you'd be reminded
That for me it isn't over.

Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead."

Nothing compares
No worries or cares
Regrets and mistakes
They are memories made.
Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you
Don't forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead."

Never mind, I'll find someone like you
I wish nothing but the best for you too
Don't forget me, I beg
I remember you said,
"Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead,
Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead."

"Iris"



I have been so silly in thinking that you still care...
That you still feel...
Something sweet... something true...
For me...

"And I'd give up forever to touch you
Cuz I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't want to go home right now

And all I can taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
Cuz sooner or later it's over
I just don't want to miss you tonight

And I don't want the world to see me
Cuz I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And you can't fight the tears that ain't coming
Or the moment of truth in your lies
When everything feels like the movies
Yeah, you'd bleed just to know you're alive

And I don't want the world to see me
Cuz I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And I don't want the world to see me
Cuz I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

And I don't want the world to see me
Cuz I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am

I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am
I just want you to know who I am"

"Leaves"



"I close your eyes with my mouth
Now you don't see anything
But you feel my breath all over
I can feel you too

Although I don't really know you
I don't really care

Cry with me, make my day
Tomorrow all will be gone
All the sweetness and all the fun
No, I don't wanna know...

Although I don't really know you
I don't really care

Now that you're gone I don't know
How to really feel inside
Baring the hope to see you again
I guess I never will

Now that I do really know you
Yes, I really care!"


By The Gathering from Mandylion 1995

Tristan & Isolde

ISOLDE READING:
"My face in thine eye, thine in mine appears,
And true plain hearts do in the faces rest;
Where can we find two better hemispheres
Without sharp north, without declining west?
Whatever dies, was not mix'd equally;
If our two loves be one, or thou and I
Love so alike that none can slacken, none can die"
John Donne

"Bury Me Deep Inside Your Heart"



Because my heart still cries for you...
Only you...
And you should know it... But you were too busy in letting me go...


"Let me wake up in your arms
Hear you say it's not alright
Let me be so dead and gone
So far away from life
Close my eyes
Hold me tight
And bury me deep inside your heart

All I ever wanted was you, my love
You...all I ever wanted is you, my love
Your're all I ever wanted, just you

Let me never see the sun
And never see you smile
Let us be so dead and so gone
So far away from life
Just close my eyes
Hold me tight
And bury me deep inside your heart

All I ever wanted was you, my love
You...all I ever wanted is you, my love
You're all I ever wanted, you, oh my love
You're all I ever wanted, you, my love

That's the way it's always been
My heart stops beating only for you Baby
Only for your loving

All I ever wanted was you, my love
You...all I ever wanted is you, my love
You're all I ever wanted, you, my love
You're all I ever wanted, you, my love"

"Disappear"




"Hollow, like you don't remember me
Underneath everything I guess I always dreamed
That I would be the one to take you away from all this wasted pain
But I can't save you from yourself

Don't you want to feel
Don't you want to live your life
How much longer are you gonna give in to the fear
Holding you down until you're frozen
I can't let you fall apart
You don't even know what you've done to me
But I would be the one to take you away from all this wasted pain
If you could just wake up

Don't you want to feel
Don't you want to live your life
How much longer are you gonna give in to the fear
Holding you down until you're

All alone
All alone and drowning in your past
Take it back
Take it back I still believe you can

Don't you want to feel
Don't you want to live your life
How much longer are you gonna give in to the fear?
I can't go on pretending so give me something real
No one in your way but you
How much longer are you gonna give in to the fear?
Holding you down till you disappear"

"The Change"



"Thought that I was strong
I know the words I need to say
Frozen in my place
I let the moment slip away

I've been screaming on the inside
And I know you feel the pain
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Haaa...

Say it's over,
Yes it's over
But I need you anyway
Say you love me but it's not enough

Never meant to lie
But I'm not the girl you think you know
The more that I am with you
The more that I am all alone

I've been screaming on the inside
And I know you feel the pain
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Haaa...

Say it's over,
Yes it's over
But I need you anyway
Say you love me but it's not enough

Not that I'm so different
Not that I don't see
The dying light of what we used to be
But how could I forgive you?
You've changed!
And I'm a liar by your side
I'm about to lose my mind

'Cause I've been screaming on the inside
And I know you feel the pain
Can you hear me?
Can you hear me?
Haaa...

You've been dreaming
If you're thinking
That I still belong to you
I've been dying,
Because I'm lying to myself!
Haaa...

Say it's over,
Yes it's over
But I need you anyway
Say you love me but it's not enough "

"Breath"

"I see nothing in your eyes, and the more I see the less I like.

Is it over yet, in my head?

I know nothing of your kind, and I won't reveal your evil mind.

Is it over yet? I can't win.

So sacrifice yourself, and let me have what's left.
I know that I can find the fire in your eyes.
I'm going all the way, get away, please.

[Chorus:]
You take the breath right out of me.
You left a hole where my heart should be.
You got to fight just to make it through,
'cause I will be the death of you.

This will be all over soon.
Pour salt into the open wound.

Is it over yet? Let me in.

So sacrifice yourself, and let me have what's left.
I know that I can find the fire in your eyes.
I'm going all the way, get away, please.

[Chorus:]
You take the breath right out of me.
You left a hole where my heart should be.
You got to fight just to make it through,
'cause I will be the death of you.

[Bridge]
I'm waiting, I'm praying, realize, start hating.

[Chorus:]
You take the breath right out of me.
You left a hole where my heart should be.
You got to fight just to make it through,
'cause I will be the death of you."

"I Want My Innocence Back"


I want my innocence back by ~oODanielaOo on deviantART


"I want my innocence back
And if you can’t give it to me
I will cut you down
And I will run you through
With the dagger you sharpened
On my body and soul
Before you slit me in two
And then devoured me whole
I want my innocence back
I want my innocence back
I want my innocence back
I want my innocence back
And if you can’t pacify me
I will break your bones
You think I’m bluffing, just try me
I will never forget
The words you used to ensnare me
Till my dying day
You’ll suffer for this, I swear (I swear)
I want my innocence back
I want my innocence back
I want my innocence back
And I demand
You put my heart back in my hand
And wipe it clean
From the mess you made of me
And I require
You make me free from this desire
And when you leave, I’d better be the innocent
I used to be
I want my innocence back
I want my innocence back
I want my innocence back"

"Gothic Lolita"


Return To Innocence by =Ariel87 on deviantART

"How old are you?
I’m older than you’ll ever be
I’ve been dead a thousand years
And lived only two or three
I don’t mind telling you
My life was ended by your hand
The kind of murder where nobody dies
But I don’t suppose you’d understand
Call off the search
We’ve found her
If I am Lolita
Then you are a criminal
And you should be killed
By an army of little girls
The law won’t arrest you
The world won’t detest you
You never did anything
Any man wouldn’t do
I’m Gothic Lolita
And you are a criminal
I’m not even legal
I’m just a dead little girl
But ruffles and laces
And candy sweet faces
Directed your furtive hand
I perfectly understand
So it’s my fault?
No, Gothic Lolita
Thank you, kind sirs
You’ve made me what I am today
A bundle of broken nerves
A mouthful of words I’m still afraid to say
I don’t mind telling you
Now that I’m old enough to love
I couldn’t begin to even if
My pretty life depended on it
And funny thing, it does
Call off the search
We’ve found her
If I am Lolita
Then you are a criminal
And you should be killed
By an army of little girls
The law won’t arrest you
The world won’t detest you
You never did anything
Any man wouldn’t do
I’m Gothic Lolita
And you are a criminal
I’m not even legal
I’m just a dead little girl
But ruffles and laces
And candy sweet faces
Directed your furtive hand
I perfectly understand
So it’s my fault?
No, Gothic Lolita
I am your sugar
I am your cream
I am your anti-American dream
I am your sugar
I am your cream
I am your worst nightmare
Now scream
If I am Lolita
Then you are a criminal
And you should be killed
By an army of little girls
The law won’t arrest you
The world won’t detest you
You never did anything
Any man wouldn’t do
I’m Gothic Lolita
And you are a criminal
I’m not even legal
I’m just a dead little girl
But ruffles and laces
And candy sweet faces
Directed your furtive hand
I perfectly understand
So it’s my fault?
No, Gothic Lolita"

"If You Feel Better"


"If you feel better
telling me I’m cruel
saying I’m unfeeling
I don’t mind
if it’s necessary
if it helps you out
crying that I’m heartless
it’s alright
well I’m sorry
to cause you so much pain
but it occurs to me
you’re acting like a ten year old
so glad you’re still in touch
with your inner child
all the same what can you really hope
to gain from complaining
I could apologize for all the things
I’ve never done
but how much fun would that be
so no I won’t do that
but if you feel better
telling me I’m cruel
saying I’m unfeeling
I don’t mind
if it’s necessary
if it helps you out
crying that I’m heartless
it’s alright
won’t make me sorry
‘cause I’m cruel
won’t hurt my feelings
‘cause I don’t have any
won’t break my heart
‘cause it’s not there to break
if you feel better
my mistake
I don’t need to hear
you love me
when it’s clear
I’m on your mind
all these thoughts
you’re thinking of me
how have I been so unkind
but oh I see
it’s been a losing battle all along
so if you feel better
go ahead and say I’m wrong"



By Emilie Autumn

"Lost"




"Lost in myself I cannot feel
Control I aim I stumble and fall
Believing you that's why I loose
Emotionless I'm falling apart
Reaching for you but falling through
Confused I am I'm loosing ground
Embraced by you in my own mind
Holding on to the sweet beliefs
Calling out my own reality screaming out all my fears
Overwhelming by all insanity sacrificed a thousand tears
Calling out in pain my weaknesses fighting to get back whole
Overwhelmed by madness lost in the darkness of my soul
Woke up alone but in my heart
You were there whispering my name
Want to go back to the same old place
Where we belonged until death do us part
I close my eyes and numb my heart
Wish for sleep but only face my truth
Embraced by you in my own mind
Holding on to the sweet beliefs
Calling out my own reality screaming out all my fears
Overwhelming by all insanity sacrificed a thousand tears
Calling out in pain my weaknesses fighting to get back whole
Overwhelmed by madness lost in the darkness of my soul"
