I can feel your fingers when I close my eyes
Take your poison, look inside
I fall into dreaming
I've been waiting for your touch to bring me home
Sleeping, death will come and leave me out of the sunlight

Shadows pulling me along with you
When the moonlight sings
The darkness brings me back to die with you
I've given all my life to be with you
My heart's waiting and breaking to return to burn with you tonight

Hating all I am when lying by your side
Taking everything of me
Do people mean nothing?
I hold secrets only dreaming eyes can see
Nighttime sanctuary seeks
The pain of the living

Shadows pulling me to lie with you
When the moonlight sings
The darkness brings me back to die with you
I've given all my life to be with you
My heart's waiting and breaking to return to burn with you tonight

Lay down your night
Holy for you

Forsake the night
All I see is you

For every night
Live just to die for you

Shadows pulling me to lie with you
When the moonlight sings
The darkness brings me back to die with you
I've given all my life to be with you
My heart's waiting and breaking to return to burn with you tonight

    Lyric CorrectionI don't know if this is right or not, as I have no cd booklet to confer with, but is it 'shadows pulling me along with you' or 'shadows pulling me to lie with you'?

    Concensus?

    My OpinionI get total vampire romance from this song and no, not fucking Twatlight. Lemme explain.

    "Sleeping death will come and lead me out of the sunlight."
    Vampires are dead, right? If death comes to lead you from sunlight, it kinda sounds like turning a human.

    "I'd give it all away to be with you."
    Innocuous on its own, but with the context of the song, can't have your human ties as a vampire and can't be a vampire with human ties.

    "Forsake the light, all I see is you."
    Now that can be taken any of many ways, but again, sunlight. Fill in the blanks.

    So this is my opinion and partial dissection of the song. I could be spot on or way off base. Won't know until someone asks the band, eh?
