from the day my love began, I began to change
when I was just staring at you
you were always standing in that garden, looking lonely
as you stared at nothing but the scattering flowers

my unfullfilled wish made another wound in my aching heart
this reality bound up before my eyes still haunts me all the while
so that only the stifling atmosphere will
not forget me now

GARDEN wishing that someday I'll be able to meet you always
GARDEN in the midst of this passing season, forever... you will...

the sorrowfully withering flowers that have seen a thousand nights
in sepia your figure pictured

I want to forget, I don't want to forget, these contradictory feelings
subdued, I stand here all by myself
lonely, with only the snow to colour the scenery, but
still, always, so that I will not forget

I want to forget, I don't want to forget, these contradictory feelings
subdued, I stand here all by myself
time passes quickly, vanishing from reality, so that I will not forget
these memories

    General CommentIts ironic really...when i was with my boyfriend this was 'our song' and now that we've split up it sums up exactly how i feel.
    "subdued, I stand here all by myself / lonely, with only the snow to colour the scenery, but / still, always, so that I will not forget" *sigh* i wonder what Kyo (i asume it was Kyo who wrote this) was going through when he wrote it.

    General CommentYou are right, it is Kyo, he writes all the lyrics. He seems to be either really disturbed, or obsessed with really disturbing things most of the time. I think it is cute, just dont tell him that.

    General CommentThere has to be something deeper than just whats going on in Kyo's slightly twisted mind, it leaves me with the feeling that theres some vunrability in there somewhere not just the "grrr-gjdshguhnnauraefkl!!-scaryness" we've all come to know and love.
