My blue eyes seek the ocean of yours
Take a breath and dive in to my soul
Don’t fear the darkness inside me
Only you can purify me
You died seven years ago
Are you in heaven or hell?
I’ve been awaiting the reaper for seven years
Over commited seven sins
Searching for you in seven seas
The seventh day I couldn’t sleep
Will you come to my dream?
Insomnia causes silence, except your scream.
Come to my dream, follow the dark
Paint your self portrait on my heart
