Water to Ice

♫ Water to Ice – Erised

Water to Ice

Stagnate is the water,
I drink of you,
Hope, you take from my mouth,
dreams not from you.

How was I supposed to know,
the thief inside thee?
Trust, I kept to myself,
but then I couldn't see.

You dream of past be-comings,
dreams of truths,
You, the knife I stab me,
in wombs of Ruth.

You lead me through your forest,
now you've left me lost,
Warmth, a distant memory,
nothing here but frost.

♫ Eye – Erised


I eye an eye,
that isn't pleasant to see,
I eye an eye,
that's believed to be true,
I eye an eye,
that isn't for you.

The unpleasantness I see,
is the stealing of the rights of the free,
believe in the lie,
believe in the eye,
and it will do for you,
whatever you want it to.

I eye an eye,
that isn't for me,
I eye an eye,
I don't believe to be true,
I eye an eye,

what's the eye for you?

♫ Enchantment – Erised

I saw you walking the other day,
been so long, didn't know what to say,
love's been lost, I feel so cold,
empty feelings with nothing to hold.

(chorus)But I'm here still waiting,
in this enchantment,
and I love you,
why don't you love me?

Love's a hunger that can't be denied,
I wish I saw that behind you're eyes,
watch me starve, waste away,
ever longing till my dying day. (chorus)

Darkness grips me giving into the night,
never knowing, never feeling your light.

♫ Blanket – Erised


It's long past the hour now,
see the stars fall like rain,
I'm here to wash your fears away,
and take away your pain.

With this blanket of love I surround you,
I'll keep you safe and warm,
I'm here, I'm here for you always,
to protect you from the storm.

chorus)So close your eyes, baby of mine,
baby don't you cry, baby of mine,
until tomorrow, when you can shine, shine, shine,
in my arms you'll stay, baby of mine.—

It's long past the hour now,
I see the stars in your eyes,
I'm here to wash your fears away,
and show you love never dies.

With this blanket of love I surround you,
and shelter you from the night,
I'm here, I'm here for you always,
you're not alone in your fight... (chorus)

♫ Away – Erised

I've been alone many a year,
she left me here without her light,
all I have are these bitter tears,

memories ghosts of what was right.

I continue on day to day,
finding a way to feel her light,
in darkness of her tomb she lay,
and I in my own endless night.

Away, Away, Away, Away, away is where my true love lay.

Lost in thoughts of happier days,
a budding May basked in sunlight,
two of us in a field we lay,
embraced in love's eternal delight.

Away, Away, Away, Away, away is where my true love lay.

Winter came early that year,
leaving me here in this cold night,
I wish I could give back these tears,
and have her in my arms tonight.

Away, Away, Away, Away, away is where my love must stay

Away, Away, Away, Away, away is where my love must stay

♫ Echo – Erised


In our worlds of glass,
echo desires,
ready to feel again,
the cold soon will pass,
lighting the fires,
ready to burn again.

Lost on a shore,
feelings start to wake,
ready to feel again,
from you I tore,
nothing more to take,
ready to burn again.

Pain learns to sleep,
and the doves sing,
ready to feel again,
must escape from the deep,
with hope as wings,
ready to fly again...

♫ Amber – Erised


Amber, Amber,
dreams ever with you lie,
dreams are only illusions,
and still the soft tulip dies.

You voice echoes in my mind,
it's always been a sweet sound,
only through my memories,
all that is lost can be found.

I am sealed in my stone tomb,
but I'm free when I'm asleep,
asleep, I can imagine,
you're with me in the hush deep.

I'm adrift on waves of woe,
I wish you could release me,
in forever solitude,
how I hate this empty sea.

I survive on the words of,
I'll see again someday,
you left me to easily,
oh, why did you go away?

Amber, Amber, Why?
dreams ever with you lie,
dreams are only illusions,
and still the soft tulip dies.

Girl with the Red & Black Bag

♫ Girl with the Red & Black Bag – Erised

(chorus)Girl with the red bag,
you're all I really need,
no matter where you're going,
I'll always follow your lead.--

As I stare into your eyes,
I wonder what is your name,
if you don't want to tell me,
just smile it's all the same.

Girl with the red bag,
you lead and I will follow,
fill this tunnel in my heart,
so deep and hollow.

As I stare into your eyes,
oh girl with the red bag,
I am lost, so lost,
oh girl with the red bag.(chorus)

Saga poo,
oh girl with the red bag,
saga poo,
oh girl with the red bag...


(chorus)Girl with the black bag,
my love has grown cold (old),
what was new (warm) and alive,
has now turned old (cold).--

You think I don't see,
laughter on your face,
telling me I've no worth,
putting me in my place.

Girl with the black bag,
who is left to follow?
how was I suppose to know,
you would be hollow?

you think I don't see,
oh girl with the black bag,
how empty you can be,
oh girl with the black bag.

Death is in your bag,
oh girl with the black bag,
death is in your bag,
oh girl with the black bag...

Forever Evers

♫ Forever Evers – Erised

Forever Evers

(chorus) Forever Evers, for us to sing,
forever evers, love will bring,
forever evers, endless ring.--

Forever smiles, to make you glad,
forever thoughts, to run free,
life is evers to be.

Forever dreams, before you wake,
forever laughter, to make you see,
life is evers to be. (chorus)

Forever skies, I'd paint for you,
forever you, before me,
we are evers to be.

Forever you,
and forever me,
are evers that will always be,

forever you and me...

♫ Nuke – Erised


(For the first Final Fantasy fans out there)

(chorus)In Lefein you can buy what your heart desires,
burning, burning atomic fires,
burn right to it,
scorch right through it,
oh just nuke it all away.--

Flames that yell,
the most powerful spell,
give you the gift of hell,
it's just a soul to sell.(chorus)

Stand big and tall,
60,000 gold is all,
hear the pyro call,
to nuke away it all.(chorus)

Who gave you this power,
to make men cower,
change night into day,
as you nuke it all away...

♫ Julie – Erised


Julie I've finally found joy,
but now help me to understand,
why is there this space between us,
and why are we not hand in hand?

Thought I knew everything to know,
I really didn't know what was true,
but now I see, Julie, it's you and me,
I've never felt this way before you.

I need to be lost in your long brown hair,
Julie just make there be no more maybe,
say you need me and will never let go,
all I can promise is eternity.

Day after day I wait here for you,
please tell me what I have to do,
save me because I need you, Julie,
part of me is missing with out you.

Then I feel you on my shoulder,
Julie be the one to save me,
from this emptiness in my heart,
I love thee forever Julie...
