"Slept So Long" as written by and Jonathan Howsman Davis Richard Kendall Gibbs....
Walking, waiting
Alone without a care
Hoping, and hating
Things that I can't bear

Did you think it's cool to walk right up
To take my life and fuck it up
Well did you?
Well did you?

I see hell in your eyes
Taken in by surprise (surprise)
Touching you makes me feel alive
Touching you makes me die inside

Walking, waiting
Alone without a care
Hoping and hating
Things that I can't bear

Did you think it's cool to walk right up
To take my life and fuck it up
Well did you?

I hate you!

I see hell in your eyes
Taken in by surprise
And touching you makes me feel alive
Touching you makes me die inside

I've slept so long without you
It's tearing me apart too
How'd it get this far
Playing games with this old heart
I've killed a million petty souls
But I couldn't kill you

I've slept so long without you

I see hell in your eyes
(Touching you makes me die inside)
Taken in by surprise
(Touching you makes me die inside)
Touching you makes me feel alive
(Touching you makes me die inside)
(Touching you makes me die inside)
(Touching you makes me die inside)
I see hell in your eyes
(Touching you makes me die inside)
Taken in by surprise
(Touching you makes me die inside)
Touching you makes me feel alive
(Touching you makes me die inside)
Touching you makes me die inside
(Touching you makes me die inside)
I see hell in your eyes

    General CommentI think its about a guy wanting to be with this girl so much, even though he hates her and feels likes she always plays games with his "old heart".

    General CommentNo that was Stuart Townsend. The song is about a guy being a vampire and wanting this girl so bad but she isn't a vampire so he bits her and they get together.

    General Commenti want to know what makes you think this song is through the eyes of a vampire. yes, i know the song was in fact made for the soundtrack of a movie about vampires, but i really don't think it means this is first person narrative from the mouth of a vampire. moving on...

    of course it's about some being lusting over some other being, and of course, how cliche, one can't have the other. there's emotions on many levels; love and hate. i just think the whole notion of the song has been done before. i've been an orgy fan since the release of candyass, and i believe this is the worst song jay has ever done.

    General Commentit is from the mouth of the vampire, in the movie he's the rockstar, he writes these songs, it's about how he's feeling, and secrets of vampires. And you probably didn't like this Jay Gordon song cuz it's not a Jay Gordon song, Jonathan Davis wrote it, but he can't sing it due to his contract.
