Listen to my prayer, Lord! Do not let me perish!
I need you as my teammate whom I deeply cherish!
Don't let the good remain unpaid and be envious
in this greedy world where everything is perfidious!

Help me, Lord, to stay for eternity in your cathedral!
Let me see my children well, protect them from evil!
Do not let them fall into the panic of this society,
but to trust, to believe in high-aspirations with piety!

Raise me up, Lord, pick my heart up from the floor!
Don't let my words be spoken for nothing, like before!
Give my mother and my sister good health, if you could,
to see them happy here in my neighborhood!

Catch me, Lord, if I should ever fall again!
Do not let me get into dreadful Satan's hell!
Leave me here with my both feet on the ground,
let me see the denouement of my life! Now I'm found!

Teach me, Lord, the secret of two gathered hands!
Touch my soul with prayers that are so intense!
Have mercy on me, give me strength to bear my cross,
to find out where peace and serenity are! Not to get lost!

If I will exist in the next cycle,
I wish to be reborn as someone
who's meant for you.
We'll find ways for our paths to cross
and author the love story we failed to
write in this lifetime.

There are a hundred shadows upon me,
Seven Iron crosses will not allow their reign,
In this love,hollow and fulfilment can't be apart,
In this clouds,there will only be dark,
He will come soon,to reclaim your soul as his,
With a hundred shadows upon me,
How could I resist?
Without your light,
Is it a good kill?
Without your scent to lead my sword and claws...
Is my blood sprawled all over your bed a good sacrifice?

Perhaps..
Our atoms were in the same vicinity when the universe was created;
how lucky are we to, once again, cross paths.
once again,
To brush our atoms
One against the other,
feel the familiarity of "oh we've met before".
The universe has fallen into place many times since I have glanced into your eyes
Alas, he takes my breathe away.
stop falling in love @me
When I was lost in my way
You knew the day you would call me son
Like the son who ran away
You faithfully stayed cause’ you knew I'd come

You waited for me,
So here I am waiting for you.

Every moment so far has drawn me to your arms
You've worked it all for the good
Every moment that's left I give back to pay a debt
I can't make good on
Cause all I can give, is all you have given
When I give it all back there's still heaven left to pay
So I can gladly give my life away

When I felt orphaned
Abandoned and knew that I had no home
Your love was open
A love that awakened a love all our own

You made room for me
So I am clearing space for you.

Every moment so far has drawn me to your arms
You've worked it all for the good
Every moment that's left I give back to pay a debt
I can't make good on
Cause all I can give, is all you have given
When I give it all back there's still heaven left to pay
So I can gladly give my life away

When my hopes are broken
When I can't lift my hands to you
When my heart is aching
And darkness is all that's in view

I look to the cross
And I see you broken
I look to the cross
I see your hands lifted high
Praying for me
In your final moments
Your heart poured out
Your love lifted high

Here I surrender
Here I lay my life down
Here on the altar
I give you my love lay down my crown

You gave your life for me
So here I give my life for you

Every moment so far has drawn me to your arms
You've worked it all for the good
Every moment that's left I give back to pay a debt
I can't make good on
Cause all I can give, is all you have given
When I give it all back there's still heaven left to pay
So I can gladly give my life away

After taking my while
finally climbing this mountain,
I couldn't even take a peaceful breath
because I can feel the shadow
of much larger mountain
falling over me.

Cross my heart, hope I die,
I will always be there to love you,
Offering kisses, taking your trembling hand,
I know you will be there for me too.

Baby I have been drunkenly thinking,
Think I have you to thank,
For giving irreplacable moments
To store inside my memory bank.

I love late nights we waste,
Spilling hearts in the dark,
All the laughter, the tears,
Have left a cherished mark.

I promise I won't ever take you for granted,
Your actions, as well as words you say,
Cross my heart, hope I die,
By your side I will forever stay.
I promise T!

Messiness in my mind.
Gunshots like voices ringing.
The moon seems dark tonight.
The moon seems to cry.
That the tears drip down, and I see the blood of my heart.
Roses, made of thorns, the pain I felt when I see that cross.
flowers, painted with pain.
the light seems to hide.
the sorrow soaring high.
my heart hurts as i write this down.
i hope to see the beauty behind the madness before i fall down...
so urm, this is gonna stay here only for a while :)

Want you to spend the night with me
While we are still young and have the chance
To enjoy eachother, I just need you,
No useless emotions or insincere romance.

All I long for; your skin against mine,
Found everything I was looking for
In your embrace, in your kiss,
Promise I won't ask for more.

I do not know what it is you do
To bring my smile each day,
I love it. I find myself
Wondering how long you are going to stay.

I know you shouldn't be on my mind,
What else do I have to think about?
That will not bring me down when it's late at night
And stars are starting to come out.

Think feelings are beginning to bulge,
We both agreed not to cross that line,
I am afraid of getting too attatched
Because I'm certain you will never be  mine.
The worst way to miss someone is when they are right next to you and yet you know you can never ever be with them.
