lyrics

A Spark for the Dark

See the city's dark heart tonight
And how it's black as my soul
Something's blackened out the stars tonight
It's cruel and cold
It's black as my soul

See I'm spitting out sparks tonight
While we're singing to your soul
I'll break into your heart tonight
Until it's cruel and it's cold
Until it's black as my soul

So hold me closer now until you know me well
So you can separate your heavens from your hells
Dance me back into the dark
Cos' I am stealing your spark

(Resbina)
I do not fear the darkness
The final place for the reckless
I drives you mad, it breaks your heart
Eats your mind and drinks your soul
I feel blessed in the fire, I come and light your pyre
Quench your whole desire, I'm taking you higher
You're the one that I've been waiting for
You're the face of the unknown
And I can't feel the heat anymore
For the first time I'm in love, your love
Encrypted in the core of my memory
Like a splinter in my mind and I can see it in your eyes
Do you believe in fate?

I am the priest and the altar
For all of your sins
I am the unhappy ending
For all you begin
I am all of your sins

So hold me closer now until you know me well
So you can separate your heavens from your hells
Dance me back into the dark
Cos' I am stealing your spark
