Bleed for Love (At the Magic Door)

Shaken 
by the storm you bring
By your lack of will
The emptiness you leave

You trapped me in a dream
Keep me far from reality
I should tear down the wall
But your voice mesmerizes my soul
A siren or a ghoul
I bleed for love

They say: “You should leave ghosts from the past behind”
I turn and throw backwards a coin in a fountain
But despite bad luck hopes don’t die

Just for a night
When I see that smile
I can feel that I’m still alive

Just for a night
You run and hide
And I’m left behind, here, to curse the sky

You trapped me in a dream
Keep me far from reality
I should tear down the wall
But your voice mesmerizes my soul
A siren or a ghoul
I bleed for love

They say: “You should move on, there is no destiny”
But you’re life and death and everything in between
Even though I’m ashamed to say it

The magic door
Somewhere in Rome
There I’ll wait for the one I adore

The magic door
There we once more
Will go back to get what we’ve become

I know you saw the black moon
Between the Hangman and the Fool
But don’t try your Luck again
Or you, my dear, might loose its gift

The only dragon to defeat
My dear is your own fear
Opening your eyes you’ll see:
There’s no real wall in between

Shaken
by the storm you bring
By your lack of will
The emptiness you leave

You trapped me in a dream
Keep me far from reality
I should tear down the wall
But your voice mesmerizes my soul
A siren or a ghoul
I bleed for love

I bleed for love
Here’s again the dawn
The light in your eyes has gone

I bleed for love
At the magic door
Blamed for a murder I never wrote

Shaken
by the storm you bring
