「DOUBLE-SIDED」White Tiger

RESPONSIBLE ~because you need me, anything~

this day won’t happen twice, I know
I’ll never get it back, but hey!
if you’re in trouble, just call out to me,
I’ll give my time to you.

the sun is setting, the darkness is coming,
I’ll still charge into the fray
because you need me, I’ll do anything –
who’s hurting you? I’ll tear them apart!

wherever you are in the world,
I’ll come get you, you’ll see!
dropping, giving, everything
isn’t this lover’s responsibility?

I’ll ride the wind across the seas, that’s me
to fight your strongest demons for you
and even upon my final breath I’ll scream,
because I love you, it will have been worth it!

the sun is setting, the darkness is coming,
I’ll still charge into the fray
because you need me, I’ll do anything –
who’s hurting you? I’ll tear them apart!

backed into a corner, I’ll bare my teeth
just stay behind me and watch!
my skin is covered with the color of death,
but I’m still standing, aren’t I?

the years have come and gone, I’ve learned
the sun will always rise again
you just take a breath and I,
I’ll see you through the night!

the sun is setting, the darkness is coming,
I’ll still charge into the fray
because you need me, I’ll do anything –
who’s hurting you? I’ll tear them apart!


guardian spirit ~close your eyes~

responsible, I’m always responsible
for our life, don’t you know?
awake beneath a waning moon, the seconds ticking by
I yawn and smile over you

close your eyes, love
just take it easy now
let your fears melt into the darkness
‘cause I’m watching over you tonight

take my hand if you’re scared
let’s fight your demons now!
it’s nothing but an illusion
so break free, just look at me

looking over your shoulder, I
I’ll see you to tomorrow
it’s us that’s on the line, can’t you see?
it’s not just “you and me”

you’re afraid, I know
you think you can’t bear it
but I’ll show you, let me show you
what you can really do, let’s go!

so close your eyes, love
just take it easy now
let your fears melt into the darkness
‘cause I’m watching over you tonight

daydreams and nightmares, spirits and gods
don’t try to fool me, come on!
I know what you’re really afraid of
you think you could lie to me?

there’s nothing you can hide
‘cause I understand you more than anyone
so let me take a guess right now
humanity and life, how close am I to right?

answer me with silence
that’s fine, I’ll still be here
I’ll tear your ghosts apart every night
we’ll never be alone

so close your eyes, love
take it easy now
let your fears melt into the darkness
‘cause I’m watching over you tonight

I’m watching over you…


White Flowers

you felt that no one loved you,
you felt no one cared when you died
because society had put you out on the street!
and for what reason, to what end?
what other thoughts could exist?

you died and were buried within a day
and no one came to your funeral
your manager replaced you in less than an hour
and your coworkers didn’t care!
they didn’t even know your name!

your solitude in life was terrible
but in death you aren’t alone!
I’ll stay here with you now,
until the end of eternity someday,
crouched above your single grave.

the memories that people should have had,
the words they should have spoken
the white flowers they should have placed for you,
the love they should have given
you have none of it, but you have me!

so keep your head up, spirit traveler
you know you aren’t alone!
even in the coldest autumn winds,
against the most terrifying demons of the night,
I’ll be here watching, watching you.

just trust me and you’ll be alright!


last eternal night

the sun sets against the blinding snow
the skies now turning gray
“the world is ending…”
but that’s okay
we were never meant to stay!

your life was neither short nor long
it’s simply time to go!
the stars are ready, calling you
and that’s really all I know
at least it’s not for show

you carried through with a genuine heart
loving your dear family
for them it will be rough sometimes
but soon they’ll really come to see
their tragic love has set them free

you won’t come back,
at least not here!
but where we are going,
you’ve no reason to fear
with me your demons won’t come near

the cold of the steel against your skin
I know it hurts, but after all
it’ll only last a second!
and if you just close your eyes and fall
I’ll catch you before you hit the wall

look up at the full moon high above
it’s beautiful tonight!
you’ll see this image for as long as you live
a guiding beacon of white light
a symbol of all that is just and right

now take my hand, let’s go
it’s time to go!
are you looking forward
to our journey from now on?
look at the moon and smile!


the look in your eyes…

the look in your eyes as you fell in my arms,
I can’t forget it…
as I held you in a loving embrace,
you slipped away from me
gazing into another world beyond me
and before I knew it
you were carried away by other hands
guided into a land I couldn’t know.

the person who did this to you,
I couldn’t stop them…
but I will, I promise I will
I’ll follow them to the ends of the earth!
until their eyes look the same as yours
until they feel the pain you felt
I’ll tear them apart!
and then, I’ll follow you.

you weren’t supposed to die
nothing about that day was right
but I’ll make it right!
I’ll restore the balance
holding you in my arms
holding your memory in my eyes
I’ll do whatever it takes.
just watch!


AMULET

a necklace with a pendant
and a meaning only we understand
given to you on your birthday
so many years ago

have you kept it?

a braided cord
tied twice around your wrist
made by hand
with string and love and hours

do you remember?

because I promised
I’d protect you forever,
I’ll give these gifts to you.
don’t think of them so lightly.

do you understand?

a reflection of our relationship
and an amulet to guard you
with a world so beautifully vast
sometimes, this is all I can do.

will it be enough?

because I promised
I’d protect you forever,
I’ll give these gifts to you.
don’t think of them so lightly!
