She's the one who all the boys want
But she's barely breaking stride
When I look and see her standing there
I'm all butterflies inside
Her name means "the resurrection"
It's not too far from true
I'm afraid that if I write this song
She might break my heart in two

She hits the mark
The kindled spark
but I'll just drag her down
Down

Far away in distant skies
I see starlight in your eyes
Do you think of miracles
Are they only dreams for fools
She's the one who haunts my dreams at night
Underneath the bluest moon
She makes hearts skip beats in triplets
The brightest light in any room

She hits the mark
The kindled spark
But I'll just drag her down
Down, down, down, down

When Anastasia smiles
The world is getting lighter
When anastasia wakes
The lights come on inside her
And stars will light the path for her tonight
And yes, the moon is burning oh so bright
Anastasia

    General CommentA good song, a beautiful song, a tragic song. This is about Anastatia, the second girl he was engaged to.

    "I'm afraid that if I write this song
    She might break my heart in two"

    Roper has already been through an engagement breaking... It's tough trusting that this isn't just going to happen all over again.

    "She hits the mark
    The kindled spark
    but I'll just drag her down
    Down"

    She's amazing, but he thinks he's going to just drag her down with his "un-amazingness".

    General CommentThe line "And yes, the moon is burning oh so bright" is referencing back to the first CD's song "Moons Burns Bright."

    It was about Reese's fiance dying, and he's letting people know that he's still not completely over her death. (at least, I'm pretty sure all that's correct)

    General CommentConstip8d, I don't know what you heard, but does this song sound like it's about a dead person? I know the facts, and none of Reese Roper's fiancés have died.

    General CommentYeah, I was pretty sure his first finacé simply broke up with him.
