Track Name: Valentine
My love, the one who cares. My love, the one I long for. Together we laugh in this dream, together we'll cry... Together we swim in this stream, this stream in which we will die...My love, the one who cares. My love, the one I long for. Together we laugh in this field, together we'll try... Together, my love, we will never yield this dream in which we will fly...
Track Name: For the Sake of...
Blood on my face... and I crawl to you. What have you done... have I turned from you ? Leaving me here... on my knees in shame. With a blanket of faith... I can't speak your name. For the love of God, I'm saying... For the sake of us, I'm praying... Look in my eyes... do you see the pain? Burning so brightly... like the love in your name. Visions of you... heal me with your grace. Show me the truth... take this blood from my face. For the love of God, I'm saying... For the sake of us, I'm praying...
Track Name: Darkness of a Question
I look at myself... yeah. And what I see makes me stronger than before. The pain that burns in my eyes is not a stranger to me. I will not let us down again. I will not close my eyes. Promises you made me I still believe them. I will not let us down again. I will not close my eyes. Our love is lost in the darkness of a question.
Track Name: The Complete
We have found each other and now in our time of need we will have each other and won't ever be alone... My mind is set on none but you... The way we love is so complete. The lives we lived so obsolete... Time's passed by so quickly and still we are one in heart... We have found each other and I've given all to you... My mind is set on none but you... The way we love is so complete. The lives we lived so obsolete... We have found each other and I've given all to you... We will have each other when we need each other most...
Track Name: Withered
I was told a lifetime ago, you would never turn away. Now I hold in my hands these tears that I've wiped away to hide my pain. So you've walked away from me... We've gone our separate ways, and I've got to... I've got to let you be. When I tried to walk away, there was so much left to say. Now I try to stay away, but it gets harder everyday. Everyday that we had you took away with a breath... Look at yourself, is this what you want to be? All the times I tried to tell you, you just turned yourself from me. When I finally ceased to try, your trust in me had ceased to be. Heartless words left me cold and empty... You've gone your separate way, and I've got to... I've got to let you be. When I tried to walk away, there was so much left to say. Now I try to stay away, but it gets harder everyday. Everyday that we had you took away with a breath... Look at yourself, is this what you want to see? All my promises... meant nothing. All this faith... worth nothing. Left to bleed... for nothing. Left to die... with nothing. Look at yourself, is this what you want to be? Look at yourself, is this what you want to see?
Track Name: The Speaking Eyes
Again a start of a new beginning... desired, but still unwanted. Approaching the stage of life that I've passed many times before. Trying to keep my distance, Although it diminishes with each look into your eyes. But look in my eyes, it's all there, unspoken words of how much I truly care for you. If you only showed me yours it would be so much easier. So please be patient with me... Slowly but surely, I reveal myself to you. Can't express the feelings I want to share with you. Experiences of far-off days block my expressions of present day. If you had only looked in my eyes... Unspoken words... Why didn't you show me yours? Why can't you be patient with me? Too late... you'd already turned to the final page. Love tasted for a brief moment, suddenly came to an end. Leaving me empty handed once again...
Track Name: Your Burning Silhouette
Caught in a dream, hoping never to wake up, As you made me complete. Promised that nothing could come between us... But then he did... Altering your conduct towards me as we drifted apart. You took my breath of life and left. A sudden revulsion of state that filled me with emptiness… As the time passes I repress my feelings for you. Turning love into hate just to ease the pain. Trying to forget your sweet scent, your voice, your ways. Recollections of the past I dissolve in my tears. But your silhouette stills burns in my eyes, Though you are not around. How can I forgive and forget when your promises turn out to be lies. A question swarms through my head, was I to blame? Your name still scarred on my bleeding heart. An impenetrable wall encases me, Not showing my true emotions. But your silhouette still burns my eyes...
Track Name: Gray Harmony
Every word is superficial... Every thought is hidden from me... What are we when, when you turn your back to me? Where is the friendship that we forged in harmony? A gray harmony... But I don't care what you think of this, and now that know, will you let me be? And now you now that I don't care what you are, I will never become you... Every word is superficial... Every thought is hidden from me... Why do you care, when you don't even know? Where is the bond that we forget in harmony? A gray harmony… But I don't care what you think of this, and now that you know, will you let me be? Let me be and I don't care that you are what I will never become... you.
