There was a moment that I doubted the turn.
Is it something you wanted or something you learned?
If fear is the motive, you're not really concerned.
I can't. I won't. I don't. I do forgive you.

Suffers the fighter the pain of regret.
But tougher still simply to live and forget.
If it's the last chance we'll ever get,
Then I bent; I broke. I choked. I couldn't save you.

Indifference could drown
even your most holy and profound revelations.
With this light be crowned, lest your brightest beacon flicker out.

Dancer in moonlight, renew your repose.
You always seemed doubtful that anyone knows.
The value of what lay just under your clothes.
This pen, these walls, last fall.
Oh, go away then.

What of your trigger if not to destroy?
What of your anger if not for a boy?
What of your voice when you're so timid and coy?
I heard your words before you even said them.

And Emi, don't you see?
She could never spin this world for me.
Promises are feared more than believed.
I can see the sunrise as she leaves.

    General CommentYou guys have to check out this song. It's just beautiful. I discovered it on some music website for independent type artists. I'm sure you can find it if you search.
    Not sure what it means...I have a couple of ideas. Maybe the 'dancer' is the timid sad girl that he loved and she walking away from him because she was afraid of getting hurt. And he knew it was coming but he did nothing to stop it. And now he looks back.
