"This Is For Keeps" as written by and Nicholas Edward/beck Thomas....
The streets are dark, my pulse is flat-lined
As I'm running to you.
You sit completely unaware of what I'm about to do.
The air is thick with tension much like when we are together.
My fangs are aching as I'm pondering about you and I forever.
As I round your corner, I am nervous that you won't be my lover.
Knock three times and hope that my pale complexion won't blow my cover.
Answer the door with your innocent face,
Would you like to leave this human race tonight?

Eternity will never be enough for me.
And eternally will live our infallible love.

My brain is pumping at unusual secretion of lust.
Your eyes are softer now, your chin, it drips a bloody color of rust.
I am raising up the sakes of this round. I am playing for keeps.
Would you like to leave this human race tonight?

Eternity will never be enough for me.
And eternally will live our infallible love.

Follow me into the sea.
Drown together and immortalize you and me.
Leave behind this lonely town.
We're both better than this, it's not worth being down.

Eternity will never be enough for me.
And eternally will live our infallible love.

Follow me into the sea.
Drown together and immortalize you and me.
(eternally)
Leave behind this lonely town.
(eternally)
We're both better than this, it's not worth being down.

    General Commentthe first time i heard this song, i thought it was about someone who was on the brink of breaking up with their significant other... but now i think it's about the complete opposite situation. it is such a creative analogy: vampires are immortal and with eternal life comes eternal love. it's a very beautiful way of immortalizing and preserving love.


    i especially love how he sings "eternity... will never be enough for me." so beautiful; everyone has felt that way before.

    General Commentthis may be the sexiest song ever... the way the words are strung together with each pause is absolutely perfect. bomb emotion in the singing too. i cant even begin to express my connection to this song

    "As I round your corner
    I am nervous that you won't be my lover
    I knock three times and hope that my pale complexion won't blow my cover
    You answer the door with your innocent face
    Would you like to leave this human race, tonight?"

    these lines are ridiculously unbelievable...

    General Commenttwo things:

    1. this song is actually called "this is for keeps"
    2. it's actually "infallible love" not "available love" (im about 95% sure on that)

    General Commentonly the spill canvas could write a song about being a vapire and make it sound absolutely gorgeous.

    i've heard the vampire community approves of this song and loves the fact that it "accurately describes our feelings, thoughts and motives."

    coincidentaly it also accurately describes my feelings thoughts and motives.

    General Commentokay...so whoever said these arent close to the right lyrics...get their cd...its the exact lyrics..and whoever said this is called Break A Leg, no, listen to break a leg, its not this. "where did you come from where have you been , i dont know that much about you, and i dont think i want to anymore" thats part of break a leg its about someone playin him and leadin him on
