There was a boy,
there was a girl!
There was a night!
The moon, full and bright!

There was a howl,
closer and closer.
There was a scream,
there was a bite.

He’s always been a dreamer,
a man without a face.
The ghosts have silent footsteps.

Her only real achievement,
the license to be frail.
The beauty of her wisdom,
is permanently veiled.

No music for the lonely,
they only know one dance.
The one they do alone,
the silence of their homes.

Then winter builds a fortress,
around their lonely hearts.
And life becomes a fable,
a snow globe in the dark.

The light of the frozen moon.
The howl, a familiar tune.

The bane of an innocent dreamer!
Two of a kind on a moonlit night,
they walk among the shooting stars.

Six words for a hapless drifter,
a silver blade for the brave at heart.
“Don’t become my work of art”.

Save me!
If you cannot save me,
I need you to slay me!

Only the embrace of my true love,
could ever turn me back into a man now...
Into the man now!

She finds a tiny snow globe,
a garland made of hay.
“Oh ghost of silent footsteps,
can you expel this bane?”

Full moon confessions!
Lucid fantasy, it‘s not a dream.
The hate, the fear, they can’t alleviate.

“Soon they will know,
but now we are together.
We must go and get slain together,
or fall in love.”

Save me!
You only could save me,
or you’ll have to slay me!

Only an embrace of my true love,
can ever change me.
Please say you can heal me!
Need you to break this spell, love.

Save you!
I know I could save you,
no one has to slay you.

Take my embrace, please have my true love.
You’ve already saved me!
Please let me just break thee,
free from your bane, your globe of snow.
