"Always and Never" as written by and Claudio Sanchez....
If beauty sits the child's kiss
Of laughter I amend
Can you catch her if she runs?

With this I would share with you
All of this count to no end

Behind your sealed eyes you miss
All that I've done for you
Will you catch me when I run?

If timing plays evident
What would you say when you're late?

Stay with me and fall asleep
Pray to God for no bad dreams

Stay with me and fall asleep
Pray to God for no bad dreams

Here...I'm...I'm still waiting here, my dear
For one kiss from you
So here...I'm...I'm still waiting here, my dear
To kill all of you
To kill all of you

    General CommentClaudio Sanchez: “The Writer starts to lose his mind over the devastation of this love he’s been separated from. In the second verse the Writer talks about her, and the influence on what is to come in the story.”

    This is the intro into the scene in the graphic novel where Writer is lying on his bed thinking about his now estranged ex-girlfriend, the blond haired blue eyed Erica Court. He is in a deep despair, which is obvious from the look of his room which is messy, bleak, disorganized, and sparsely decorated. He is laying on his bed, staring at a broken picture frame containing a portrait of her, imagining what he would have said to Erica, and what he would like to hear from her, if they had another moment together. In his grief, he is slowly but surely isolating himself and beginning to lose his mind.

    I'm still waiting here, my dear
    For one kiss from you
    So hear

    This album is going to be off the charts, Coheed is one of those few bands that seems to get better with each album.

    General Commentkeeping the blade isn't the end of the light and the glass... it's referring to the second stage turbine "blade," the instrumental intro to coheed's first album. it's the same melody and everything. then it goes into the coheed and cambria theme on strings.

    General Commentyeah the blade on the cover of the cd, where jesse is standing is the same as [the second stage tubine] blade. in keeping the blade, as with what the music means [or noise] between songs is a change in time, setting, or events. and keeping the blade is turning the story to the Writers point of view. the entire cd is from the Writers perspective. anyways about Always & Never, i think that is the writer writing the story, in a sense...['will you catch her if she runs?' reffering to Jesse asking him if he will catch Erica]

    General CommentI'm confused by GoodApolloImSteve's take on this song. Why would Jesse ask The Writer if he will catch Erica? Jesse doesn't even know that The Writer exists (well, he knows there is a "god" but not that it's just someone writing a story) and he doesn't know about Erica either. Jesse, as well as Claudio, Newo, Ambelina, Mayo, Chase, Josephine, and Patrick (just to name a few) are all characters in the story being written. None of them even know of the Writer's existence until Claudio discovers the mirror and bleeds the two worlds temporarily into one during The Willing Well I.
