The Human Within

A vampire's dream born from tragedy
A single drop of blood falls
Shadows form and muted mouths begin to speak
Unseeded visions seen in her crystal ball
In the ballroom they flock
Formally dressed and proper 
She waits eagerly for the ticking of the clock
They all suddenly forget what they are there for
Where did she go when you saw her standing there
Was she there in the cold bitter rain of the night
Her eyes were black but you tried not to stare
She was a stranger but she was your light
The only the star that you ever knew to be right
Feelings you couldn't explain, didn't compare
Missing her as she disappeared into the night
Afraid of how she made you feel, you wouldn't dare
She slowly slipped away from your sight
Without a chance, neither of you aware
You remembered she kept your soul bright
She never knew you or that you cared
She didn't know that you were ever there
Watching her through the years night after night
The smell of her perfume and the red rose she wore in her hair
All that you will know now is her ghost light
Burning in your heart, your bones and everywhere
Will you see her in the dark again tonight
The curse is released as her mischievous tool
She never agreed to play by the rules
They came in thousands to be her fools
History tells of her secrets in legends
For thousands of years she dwelled unnoticed and untouched
There was no one she was born from, no beginning; no end
But she always knew of the night that would consume her lust
I feel so far away from me
I feel I am becoming someone else
I'm forgetting who I use to be
And everything that was wrong with me is fixing itself
I know exactly where I'm going but I have no idea where I've been
I can't remember anything about where I came from or who I was
All I ever wanted was to forget all the bad things that ever happened to me, to her
Only in her spirit world could she be with him
He was hurt and sad because he wanted her alive again
She took his hand, I don't have to be anyone else when I'm with you
This is the only way we can be together, otherwise it's not the same and it wouldn't be true
He closed his eyes hoping his love could keep her alive
But all the life in his world left from her eyes
He didn't know the things she could see
He didn't understand, he asked what do you want from me
She said all I want is you, I want it all, I want everything
