Haunted by the past,
A nightmare that seems so unreal.
Wish that I could turn back time,
And spare the pain that we both feel.
And now, we've changed,
Things will never be the same.
(Things will never be the same)

We were foolish then,
But our trials served to make us strong.
The burdens are not yours alone,
We've sought the answers for so long.
But they're not free.
They cost you more than they cost me.
(My brother)

Chorus:
I promise you,
There is nothing I won't give,
To see this through,
Return the soul to where it lives.
I promise you,
I'd go everywhere I've been,
To find a way,
To make atonement for my sin.
And see...
See your smiling face again.

When we pay the price at last,
And we are whole once more,
Life will be the way it was,
The way it was before the day,
She slipped away,
Together we'll redeem that day.

Chorus

(I promise)
(I promise)
(I promise)

Chorus

    General Commentw00t. This seems to be very based on the anime Fullmetal Alchemist, in which Vic's the voice of Edward Elric. (go on Wikipedia and look up the plot, if you want to know how I got this.)

    General CommentI love this song! its my favorite! and I love Vic!
    I feel like crying everytime I hear it because I think how it's about the anime. I loved that series (and still do) it was/is the perfect mix of sadness and comedy!
    btw, is anyone here a Ranger?

    General CommentERK! ERROR! In the second part of the 1st verse, it's "but they're not FREE", where it says "they're not REAL". For one thing, it doesn't sound anything like "real", and for another, why would the "cost" in the next line be associated with reality? Other than that, these are fine... I never would have guessed he was saying "atonement for my sin" XDD
    Vic's an okay VA, but I liked him better as Dark. Maybe it's the fact that he's about 3 times as old as Eddo.... and I love Romi Paku so much, nobody can replace her ^~~^

    General CommentUm... it says "but they're not free". Where'd you get "they're not real" from? And Dark WAS rad, but Vic is THE most AWSOME VA EVER!!! And who cares how old he is?

    General CommentWow. This is actually one of the best songs I've every heard, since I heard it about 2 years ago(: [if I'm not mistaken]. Anywho, yes, this is about FullMetal Alchemist. &+ no, I don't think that Vic listens to Evanescence. In fact, I think she & her band ( who are awesome ) scare him (; xDDD well, just felt like commenting, cause I love Vic <3 & one day I do hope to be an amazing VA just like him.
