Favorite Quote:
"The only true love I ever knew
Was behind those downcast eyes
The only comfort I ever felt
Was during those long hours of loneliness
When I felt for you
I do believe
Only innocence can save the world..." -Ocean Soul


A blood-red candle dripping wax into my veins
Stills the flowing hatred of my heart
You've graced the scars of my past with a kiss
Of the sweetest wine of God

You've got me swaying under the songs of your heart
With the kiss of my very last goodnight
I'll say I love you with my final breath
When you steal my breath away

Your touch the fire that burns me to ashes
Your gentlest love gives me the sweetest of pains

You're the burning candle guiding my way home
To a final kiss of my last night
For the touch of your angel I'd let myself die
Six hundred sixty six times

Can I feel the edge of your razor
Caress my forever bleeding wounds till I cry
Forgive my for the dying candleflame
I'll be burnt up by tonight

I'd take my own life all for you
Let your name be carved into my arms
With the edge of a rust razorblade

You've got me swaying under the songs of your heart
With the kiss of my very last goodnight
I'll say I love you with my final breath
When you steal my breath away

For the love of your kiss I would kill
For every word of love I would fly
For one final kiss goodnight I'd die
Six hundred sixty six times

The author's comments:
I write love songs for my girlfriend, many of which were a way I could express how I truly feel for her. This one, possibly the darkest one I ever wrote, was written when we were first dating, when I was having some severe emotional issues.
