lyrics

Tell me, will you wear my diadem of roses?
The gems upon your veil make you shimmer like a star--
Even in the way you turn away,
Burning like a flame, your name.
Dance with me tonight, down in the moonlight,
Water in the wine, your nightmare with mine,
We can feel the pain, the same,
We can go insane, the same,
The same...

Why do you walk away so fast when I call your name?
Alas!
I wait in vain for the day
when you call my name, call my name
At last,
For you always fly away
so fast from me,
so silently, I did not know
that you had left til you were gone
I did not know I was alone

Now I'm just ripping myself apart,
To free the Angel in my heart,
I'm just burning myself alive,
To see her dancing one more time, Oh
Here she comes! Robed in white,
She, descending from the stars--
Or am I just jerking myself off,
In a dollhouse
In the dark?

Teach me how to dance, lead me to the lighthouse,
Climb the silver stair, between the double-blue,
Laughing like two mermaids of the moon,
Believing we could always be this free...
Ride with me tonight, my chariot of velvet,
Eyes behind your hands like lilies in the sand,
I can show you where the diamonds grow,
Daughter of the Sun, Bride of Shadow,
Bride of Shadow...

Why do you walk away so fast when I call your name?
Alas!
I wait in vain for the day
when you call my name, call my name
At last,
For you always fly away
so fast from me,
so silently, I did not know
that you had left til you were gone
I did not know I was alone


Now I'm just ripping myself apart,
To free the Angel in my heart,
I'm just burning myself alive,
To see her dancing one more time, Oh
Here she comes! Robed in white,
She, descending from the stars--
Or am I just jerking myself off,
In a dollhouse
In the dark?
