ForeverForever, have I lost you?More Like This
You're fading from my sight.
Can you not see we're falling?
We're dying in the night.
My heart is yours, Forever,
I'll never turn away.
I'll wait for you to find me.
I'll try to make you stay.
You promised me, Forever,
To make our hearts as one.
Did you forget, Forever,
To tell me we were done?
Forever, will you hold me,
And sooth my heart to sleep?
Tell me again, Forever,
That I'm the one you'll keep.
My heart will beat, Forever,
Until you bid it rest.
I'll live for you, Forever.
I'll try to pass this test.

Forever, can you promise
That you won't start to cry?
This wound will bleed, Forever,
But pain is worth the prize.
I'll sing for you, Forever,
An angel for your eyes.
I'm leaving you, Forever,
But, Forever, I will wait.
I promise that I'll meet you
At heaven's golden gate.
Forever, I will hold you,
I'll never let you go.
Forever, I will love you,
Though you may never know.
I want to stay, Forever,

if I had its colors dusting my skin.

I wonder if vampires ever get lonely when
they’re sleeping and if they ever get
self-conscious because they can’t see themselves

I wonder if you can lie in heaven. I wonder
