I'm from where the magic is
I'll give you what I cannot take away with me
And my sunlit day and moon
I wanna have a silent kiss, I wanna make you mine,
I'm thinking how... can't leave me now
Stay with me somehow

You come from where the fire is, you give me what you couldn't burn the last time
One sunless day and moon
I wanna be so close to you, see whatever scars you carry within your broken heart,
Mine's your missing heart

Come with me, where the magic is, there's more than light we could share
We could join the sun and moon if you want to

Be my lifeline for this lifetime, suffer in pleasure forever and ever
I'd like to see how the walls around your heart will fall apart..
Stop resisting, let the light in, suffer in pleasure forever and ever
...for this one lifetime

Let me take you where the magic is, back in time,
Remember the light, of the cold December moon

I wanna have a silent kiss, I wanna make you mine,
I'm thinking you can't leave me now
Stay with me somehow
Stay with me somehow
Come with me where the magic is, there is more than light we can share
We could own the sun and moon

Be my lifeline for this lifetime, suffer in pleasure forever and ever
I'd like to see how the walls around your heart will fall apart..
Stop resisting, let the light in, suffer in pleasure forever and ever .. for this one lifetime
Be my lifeline for this lifetime, suffer in pleasure forever and ever
Stop resisting let the light in .. oh oh .. for this one lifetime

I am feeling your face in the dark
I'm hearing you breathe in the dark
I am tasting your lips in the dark
I'm holding you close in the dark

I'll take you where the magic is
I'll give you everything I only can offer
You can have my broken midnight moon
If you give me your broken heart
And I will give you something real and golden
We can make this life the finest art

I come from where the magic is
I'd give you what I could take away with me
And a sunlit day and moon
I wanna have a silent kiss I wanna make you mine,
I'm thinking how... can't leave me now
Stay with me somehow

I am feeling your face in the dark
I'm hearing you breathe in the dark
I am tasting your lips in the dark
I'm holding you close in the dark

    General CommentI think that this song describes an impossible relationship between a boy and girl who have polar opposite personalities and attitudes to life.

    The boy is represented by the moon. He's a dreamer, he's sensitive and loving, his view of the world is 'magical', full of mystery and intrigue, which may explain his affection for the girl. She's represented by the sun, burning bright with intense emotions. She appears stubborn, pessimistic, protective of oneself and defensive.

    Regardless, the boy sees past her fiery exterior and knows there is a kind hearted person inside. He wants her to be open with him, he wants to show her that it is possible for great things to happen in life, and that they could share happiness together. He wants to 'cure' her bitterness by showing her love ("if you give me your broken heart, I will give you something real and golden")*.

    I'm guessing that the lines where the boy describes holding and kissing the girl etc are the fantasies running through his head, rather than what is actually happening. He wants to do these things with her, but out of self defence she won't let herself get close enough to anyone for it to happen.

    My two cents!

    General CommentI love love love this song! I know is a love song but I'm not sure he and she are humans, I get the vibe that he's a god and she is something else or they are both gods or they are some mythological characters. So he's confesing his love her but I'm not sure if they do end up together or if she leaves him after one time.

    General CommentI think it has to do with a relationship between a good being and an evil one. Maybe not so black and white, but he lives surrounded by magic and she lives surrounded by fire. Basically he tells her to share this magical world with him instead of staying in where she is. You could give this a mythological theme if you wanted to, but it could very easily be a metaphor to a real relationship. There is more tot he song... but this is the basic idea as far as I can tell.

    Song MeaningI think ipsilonv is on the ball here. A more modern view at the story could be a man who invites a woman into a relationship, but her arrogance is blocking her from being potentially truly happy with him. I'm assuming that they end up together, as the ending chorus goes. So it's a good ending :D

    My InterpretationI think it's the "night" inviting the "day" into a relationship

    General CommentI think she has just got out from a relationship, she's depressed and dissapointed and that's the reason she's not so sure of starting a new one: "you give me what you couldn't burn the last time"
