Solitude's upon my skin A Life that's bound by the chains of reality Would you let me be your Endymion? I would Bathe in your moonlight and slumber in peace Enchanted by your kiss in forever sleep But until we unite I live for that night Wait for time Two souls entwine In the break of new dawn My hope is forlorn Shadows they will fade But I'm always in the shade Without you... Serene and silent sky Rays of moon are dancing with the tide A perfect sight, a world devine And I... The loneliest child alive Always waiting, searching for my rhyme I'm still alone in the dead of night Silent I lie with a smile on my face Appearance deceives and the silence betrays As I wait for the time My dream comes alive Always out of sight But never out of mind And under waning moon Still I long for you Alone against the light Solitude am I In the end I'm enslaved by my dream In the end there's no soul who'd bleed for me Hidden from daylight I'm sealed in my cave Trapped in a dream that is slowly turning to nightmare, Where I'm all alone Venial is life when you're but a dream, The book is still open the pages as empty as me [SOLO] I cling to a hope that's beginning to fade Trying to break the desolation I hate But until we unite I live for that night Wait for time Two souls entwine In the break of new dawn My hope is forlorn We will never meet Only Misery and me This is my final call My evenfall Drowning into time I become the night By the light of new day I'll fade away Reality cuts deep Would you bleed with me My Selene? ------------------------------------------------------------------ **************************************************************** *** SLOVAKIA *** ****************************************************************
