"Lover's End" as written by Sara Taylor, Michael Hanmer and Michael Rainbow....
Hands cover whispers of the lovers' fright
Fear-cloaked renditions of that autumn night
Digging up rumors of the kids in the park
What awful things happened in the dark?

Take just one last dare
Pretend you don't care
Till twilight falls
Wait, is someone else here?
And I can't stop my tears
I've never been so scared

In the cellar buried 6 feet deep
The lover's shaken from a dreamless sleep
Nails clawing splinters from the ceiling and floor
Shrieking like the witches til his stitches are sore

Take just one last dare
Pretend you don't care
Till twilight falls
Wait, is someone else here?
And I can't stop my tears
I've never been so scared

Calling for the other
Searching for her lover
Secrets she discovers drain her face of color

1, 2, 3, 4, underneath the cellar floor
5, 6, 7, 8, lover will suffocate

    My Opinionok, well this is what i got out of it.


    Hands cover whispers of the lovers' fright

    Me: "lover's being gagged from behind? hands from behind him covers his mouth."
    as jesterbunny said.


    Fear-cloaked renditions of that autumn night
    Digging up rumours of the kids in the park
    What awful things happened in the dark?
    Me: kids hearing that somthing had happened at the park

    Take, just one last dare
    Pretend you don't care
    Till twilight falls

    Me: shes daring the lover to cheat on her and not care until he comes back

    Wait, is someone else here?
    And I can't stop my tears
    I've never been so scared

    Me: the girl he is cheating with thinks someone els is there and is scared

    In the cellar buried 6 feet deep
    The lover's shaken from a dreamless sleep

    Me: the lover wakes up in a cellar six feet under (duh)
    and has waken up from being knocked out

    Nails clawing splinters from the ceiling and floor
    Shrieking like the witches til his stitches are sore

    Me: he is digging at the walls trying to get out. the pain shreeks till his stitches (probebly got hit with somthing.) hurt.

    Take, just one last dare
    Pretend you don't care
    Till twilight falls
    Wait, is someone else here?
    And I can't stop my tears
    I've never been so scared

    Calling for the other, searching for her lover
    Secrets she discovers drain her face of color

    Me: the woman he was cheaing with was looking for him,finds out what happens and is horrefied.

    1.. 2.. 3.. 4 Underneath the cellar floor
    5.. 6..7..8 Lover will suffocate

    1.. 2.. 3.. 4 Underneath the cellar floor
    5.. 6..7..8 Lover will suffocate

    1.. 2.. 3.. 4 Underneath the cellar floor
    5.. 6..7..8 Lover will suffocate

    1.. 2.. 3.. 4 Underneath the cellar floor
    5.. 6..7..8 Lover will suffocate


    well, this is only my poinion. (sorry if my spelling is bad)

    My InterpretationThis reminds me SO MUCH of the book 'fallen'. I SOMEWHAT agree with the split personality thing but not with the story that it's been assossiated with

    "Hands cover whispers of the lovers' fright
    Fear-cloaked renditions of that autumn night
    Digging up rumours of the kids in the park
    What awful things happened in the dark?"

    She' a grown woman now but can remember how dark she was as a teenager. And she can see her teenage self gagging her boyfriend and was powerless to stop it.

    "Take, just one last dare
    Pretend you don't care
    Till twilight falls"

    Referring to her evil side which is convincig the boyfriend to go down into the cellar at nighttime as a dare.

    "Wait, is someone else here?
    And I can't stop my tears
    I've never been so scared"

    Reffering to her good side trying to WARN him not to but she's scared because she knows he'll try and be the 'big man' and still go.

    "In the cellar buried 6 feet deep
    The lover's shaken from a dreamless sleep
    Nails clawing splinters from the ceiling and floor
    Shrieking like the witches til his stitches are sore"

    He takes the dare as she feared, he walks into the cellar and she walks in with him. It's too late and her evil side took over and knocked him out, she buried him 6 feet underground and he's SO tightly packed underneath there that the splinters are clawing into him.

    "Calling for the other, searching for her lover
    Secrets she discovers drain her face of color."

    The good side comes back and sees what she just did and guilty that she was powerless to stop it.

    "1.. 2.. 3.. 4 Underneath the cellar floor
    5.. 6..7..8 Lover will suffocate"

    As she freaks out, in her mid, her evil side is taunting her about what happened.

    General CommentDamn I love this song.

    General CommentKind of self-explanatory...
    A girl is seeing another man behind her boyfriend's (or husband's) back. He catches them, she's freaked out, and seems to be quite the jealous type. So, to make sure she never sees him again, he buries the guy alive, after being knocked out of course. And it's there he'll suffocate and the lover will die.
    I would also love to comment on the song's music. Though it's about something so dark, it's got this lullaby tone to it and sort of an erotic tone to it. I think that's provided for by the way Chibi whispers the lyrics, though I really don't know if she means it intentionally to sound arousing. :S

    General CommentMy god you're stupid, Cole. (Unless Chibi actually said that this song was about what you described, in which case I feel like a spack)... A chick found out her boyfriend was cheating on her so she killed him. "I've never been so scared". She knows she's going to get caught. "Calling for the other, searching for her lover, secrets she discovers drain her face of color". The chick who he was cheating with found him dead and freaked out. Jebus.
