Black and White

Post by Connar Valdor » Sun Apr 21, 2019 12:41 am

You were given two eyes, so you've got perspective,
You were given two ears, so you hear it from both sides,
But you only got one heart, it only knows one way to love
And when you find the one, suddenly it will all add up.

When it's real love, you don't have to think twice,
When it's real love, there's no sacrifice.
You just let go 'cause you know, you've got it made for life.
There's no compromise, real love is black and white.

You put a smile on my face, you always get me through,
You paint rainbows in the rain, there'd be no me without you.
I've only got one heart, I only know one way to love, ooh
And you're the one, you make everything add up, oh

When it's real love, you don't have to think twice,
When it's real love, there's no sacrifice.
You just let go 'cause you know, you've got it made for life.
There's no compromise, real love is black and white.

If it's real then it can't be broken,
All the words that you leave unspoken,
If it's real then you want for nothing,
Don't know why but there's just that something.
It's that look in your eyes and you just know
There's no try, there's no why, you just let go,
Just let go, just let go

When it's real love, you don't have to think twice,
When it's real love, there's no sacrifice.
You just let go 'cause you know, you've got it made for life.
There's no compromise...
There's no compromise, real love is black and white.
It's black and white.

Love's Language
By Ella Wheeler Wilcox

How does Love speak?
In the faint flush upon the telltale cheek,
And in the pallor that succeeds it; by
The quivering lid of an averted eye--
The smile that proves the parent to a sigh
Thus doth Love speak.

How does Love speak?
By the uneven heart-throbs, and the freak
Of bounding pulses that stand still and ache,
While new emotions, like strange barges, make
Along vein-channels their disturbing course;
Still as the dawn, and with the dawn's swift force--
Thus doth Love speak.

How does Love speak?
In the avoidance of that which we seek--
The sudden silence and reserve when near--
The eye that glistens with an unshed tear--
The joy that seems the counterpart of fear,
As the alarmed heart leaps in the breast,
And knows, and names, and greets its godlike guest--
Thus doth Love speak.

How does Love speak?
In the proud spirit suddenly grown meek--
The haughty heart grown humble; in the tender
And unnamed light that floods the world with splendor;
In the resemblance which the fond eyes trace
In all fair things to one beloved face;
In the shy touch of hands that thrill and tremble;
In looks and lips that can no more dissemble--
Thus doth Love speak.

How does Love speak?
In the wild words that uttered seem so weak
They shrink ashamed in silence; in the fire
Glance strikes with glance, swift flashing high and higher,
Like lightnings that precede the mighty storm;
In the deep, soulful stillness; in the warm,
Impassioned tide that sweeps through throbbing veins,
Between the shores of keen delights and pains;
In the embrace where madness melts in bliss,
And in the convulsive rapture of a kiss--
Thus doth Love speak.
~Can you use these tears to put out the fires in my soul?
'Cause I need you here...
Let beauty come out of ashes...
And when I pray to God all I ask is
Can beauty come out of ashes?~-Ashes

Somewhere

Post by Elessaria » Sun Apr 28, 2019 12:58 pm

Someday
Somewhere
We'll find a new way of living
We'll find a way of forgiving
Somewhere

There's a place for us
Somewhere a place for us
Peace and quiet and open air
Wait for us somewhere
There's a time for us

Someday there'll be a time for us
Time together with time to spare
Time to learn
Time to care

Someday
Somewhere
We'll find a new way of living
We'll find there's a way of forgiving
Somewhere
Somewhere
Somewhere

There's a place for us
A time and a place for us
Hold my hand and we're half way there
Hold my hand and I'll take you there

Somehow
Someday
Somewhere

I'm Standing With You

Post by Elessaria » Mon May 06, 2019 6:39 pm

When you're hurting, I want you to know
That you'll never have to hurt alone
When your faith is, faith is running low

I'll never lose faith in you
When the night's around you
And you think that no one cares about you
I will go and throw my arms around you
I'll be there...

Through whatever you go through
I'm standin' with you
Here wherever you go to
I'll stand beside you
And when you think that all the odds are all against you
And you just feel like giving up, well, I won't let you
Through whatever you go through...
I'm standing with you


We all got times when we can't be strong
When it feels like, like all hope is gone
But I'm right here, right here to lean on
I'll always be strong for you
And when you're feeling broken
And it seems like every door is closing
Want you to know that mine is always open
I'll be there...

Through whatever you go through
I'm standin' with you
Here wherever you go to
I'll stand beside you
And when you think that all the odds are all against you
And you just feel like giving up, well, I won't let you
Through whatever you go through
I'm standing with you

Nothing you can do can move me
You can try, but you can't lose me
You can't lose me

Through whatever you go through
I'm standing with you

Forevermore

Post by Connar Valdor » Wed May 08, 2019 10:39 pm

Looking back across the years
the good times and the bad
an echo in my mind

Whisper on a breeze
sweet and bitter memories
of all I left behind

If it wasn't for your love
I don't know where I'd be
I don't know what I'd do

Time and time again
I sing the same refrain
all because of you

For you will be my love
and I will feel your heartbeat
forevermore

Rest here in my arms
forevermore

Forevermore

Through the dark night of my soul
you gave me a hand to hold
and helped me make it through

Now all my doubts and my fears
held inside for all those years
disappear when I'm with you

For you will be my love
and I will feel your heartbeat
forevermore

Rest here in my arms

Give me all your love
and I'll be in your loving arms
forevermore

For you will be my love
and I will feel your heartbeat
forevermore

Rest here in my arms

Forevermore

I'm Your Angel

Post by Elessaria » Fri May 10, 2019 11:54 am


No mountains too high for you to climb
All you have to do is have some climbing faith, oh, yeah
No rivers too wide for you to make it across
All you have to do is believe it when you pray

And then you will see the morning will come
And everyday will be bright as the sun
All of your fears—cast them on me
I just want you to see...

I'll be your cloud up in the sky
I'll be your shoulder when you cry
I'll hear your voices when you call me
I am your angel
And when all hope is gone, I'm here
No matter how far you are, I'm near
It makes no difference who you are
I am your angel
I'm your angel

I saw your teardrops, and I heard you cry
All you need is time
Seek me and you shall find
You have everything, and you're still lonely
It don't have to be this way
Let me show you a better day

And then you will see the morning will come
And all of your days will be bright as the sun
So, all of your fears—just cast them on me
How can I make you see?

I'll be your cloud up in the sky
I'll be your shoulder when you cry
I'll hear your voices when you call me
I am your angel
And when all hope is gone, I'm here
No matter how far you are, I'm near
It makes no difference who you are
I am your angel
I'm your angel

And when it's time to face the storm
I'll be right by your side
Grace will keep us safe and warm
And I know we will survive

And when it seems as if your end is drawing near
Don't you dare give up the fight
Just put your trust beyond the skies

I'll be your cloud up in the sky
I'll be your shoulder when you cry
I'll hear your voices when you call me
I am your angel
And when all hope is gone, I'm here
No matter how far you are, I'm near
It makes no difference who you are
I am your angel
I'm your angel

I'll be your cloud up in the sky
I'll be your shoulder when you cry
I'll hear your voices when you call me
I am your angel
And when all hope is gone, I'm here
No matter how far you are, I'm near
It makes no difference who you are
I am your angel
I'm your angel

I'll be your cloud up in the sky
I'll be your shoulder when you cry
I'll hear your voices when you call me
I'm your angel

Keeper of the Stars

Post by Connar Valdor » Sun May 12, 2019 1:39 am

It was no accident me finding you
Someone had a hand in it
Long before we ever knew
Now I just can't believe you're in my life
Heaven's smiling down on me
As I look at you tonight

I give my thanks to the keeper of the stars
He sure knew what he was doing
When he joined these two hearts
I hold everything
When I hold you in my arms
I've got all I'll ever need
Thanks to the keeper of the stars

Soft moonlight on your face, oh how you shine
It takes my breath away
Just to look into your eyes
I know I don't deserve a treasure like you
There really are no words
To show my gratitude

I give my thanks to the keeper of the stars
He sure knew what he was doing
When he joined these two hearts
I hold everything
When I hold you in my arms
I've got all I'll ever need
Thanks to the keeper of the stars

It was no accident me finding you
Someone had a hand in it
Long before we ever knew

Don't Deserve You

Post by Elessaria » Wed May 15, 2019 2:56 pm

You're the first face I see
And the last thing I think about
You're the reason that I'm alive
You're what I can't live without

You never give up
When I'm falling apart
Your arms are always open wide
And you're quick to forgive
When I make a mistake
You love me in the blink of an eye

I don't deserve your love
But you give it to me anyway
Can't get enough
You're everything I need
And when I walk away
You take off running and come right after me
It's what you do
And I don't deserve you

You're the light inside my eyes
You give me a reason to keep trying
You give me more than I could dream
And you bring me to my knees
You bring me to my knees

Your heart is gold and how am I the one
That you've chosen to love
I still can't believe that you're right next to me
After all that I've done

I don't deserve your love
But you give it to me anyway
Can't get enough
You're everything I need
And when I walk away
You take off running and come right after me
It's what you do
And I don't deserve you

I don't deserve a chance like this
I don't deserve a love that gives me everything
You're everything I want

I don't deserve your love
But you give it to me anyway
Can't get enough
You're everything I need
And when I walk away
You take off running and come right after me
It's what you do
And I don't deserve you
And I don't deserve you

Je Te Promets

Post by Elessaria » Mon May 20, 2019 10:18 am

Je sais que c'est elle qui me fermera les yeux
Quand je serai aux portes du Sidh et des Dieux
Ce jour-là, je ceindrai son front de milles couronnes
Et nous irons sur les terres d'Avalon

Je sais qu'un jour nous échangerons nos vœux
Unis par la force de l'air et du feu
Mais comment savoir si je le désire vraiment
Si c'est lui que je veux ou si je me mens?

Si je te promets
Tous les jours de ma vie
Sans un regret
Peux-tu me jurer
Un amour infini
A jamais?

Je ne veux pas mentir
Promets
Je ne veux pas trahir
Promets
Ni même le penser
Jamais, jamais, jure-le moi
Je ne veux pas faillir
Promets
Je ne veux pas m'enfuir
Promets
Ni même l'imaginer

Je veux vivre et me consumer dans ses bras
Pourtant je sais que je n'en ai pas le droit
Mais comment choisir entre l'amour et le devoir?
Entre la raison et la douleur d'y croire?

Si je te promets
Tous les jours de ma vie
Sans un regret
Peux-tu me jurer
Un amour infini
A jamais?

Mon Dieu, garde-moi de la trahison
Mon Dieu, garde-moi de perdre la raison
Mon Dieu, garde-moi de la tentation
Mon Dieu, aide-moi à ne pas céder

Si je te promets
Tous les jours de ma vie
Sans un regret
Peux-tu me jurer
Un amour infini
A jamais?

Nights Are Forever Without You

Post by Connar Valdor » Tue May 21, 2019 11:27 pm

Looking over the beach, waves crashing down
Moonlight falls like rain
Soft somber nights spent thinking of you
When will I see you again?

Soft and low the ocean rolls
I can't stop thinking about you
Thinking about you

I didn't know it would be so strong
Waiting and wondering about you
I didn't know it would last so long
Nights are forever without you

Curtains still dance with the wind and the sky
The sun will be coming up soon
But I just can't sleep for thinking of you

Here alone with the moon
Soft and low the ocean rolls
I can't stop thinking about you
Thinking about you

I didn't know it would be so strong
Waiting and wondering about you
I didn't know it would last so long
Nights are forever without you

Mon Homme

Post by Elessaria » Tue May 28, 2019 4:37 pm

Il a le regard économe
Il a le verbe rare, ça me plaît
Il aime le chant des colombes et l'odeur du café
Et ces petites choses qu'on fait sans y penser

C'est mon homme, mon drapeau
Mon homme, celui qu'il me faut
Je frissonne je prends l'eau
C'est mon homme, mon abri, mon lit, mon héros

Il ne saurait pas comment briller
Ou comme un phare banal, oublié
Dans sa mer ordinaire
Il brise les vagues sans voir
Ces milliers de lumières
Qu'il m'offre sans le vouloir

C'est mon homme, mon drapeau
Mon homme, celui qu'il me faut
Je frissonne je prends l'eau
C'est mon homme, mon feu, mon repos

C'est mon homme, mon ami
Qui pardonne, celui qu'on choisit
Quand je tâtonne, quand je faillis
C'est mon homme qui fait ce qu'il dit

C'est mon homme je l'admire
Mon ozone, l'air que je respire
Mon opium, mon jour
Oh mon homme, mon toit, mon chemin, mon amour

Love of a Lifetime

Post by Connar Valdor » Fri May 31, 2019 11:56 pm

I guess the time was right for us to say
We'd take our time and live our lives together day by day
We'll make a wish and send it on a prayer
We know our dreams can all come true
With love that we can share
With you I never wonder, Will you be there for me
With you I never wonder, You're the right one for me

I finally found the love of a lifetime
A love to last my whole life through
I finally found the love of a lifetime
Forever in my heart, I finally found the love of a lifetime

With every kiss our love is like brand-new
And every star up in the sky was made for me and you
Still we both know that the road is long
(But) We know that we will be together
Because our love is strong

I finally found the love of a lifetime
A love to last my whole life through
I finally found the love of a lifetime
Forever in my heart, I finally found the love of a lifetime

Do You Dream Of Me

Post by Elessaria » Wed Jun 05, 2019 3:55 pm

Dreams, within the still of night
On wings of hope take flight, inside of me, oh
There, upon some distant shore
We want for nothing more than what will be

And you and I, here we are
I wonder as we come this far

If I could only read your mind
Tell me the answer I would find
Do you dream of me?
And when you're smiling in your sleep
Beyond the promises we keep
Do you dream of me?

Love has found a magic space
A deep and hidden place where time stands still
Now I hold you in my arms
You know you hold my heart and always will

And you and I, here we are
And it's a wonder that we've come this far

And after all that we've been through
You've leaned on me, I've leaned on you
Do you dream of me?
And when you're smiling in your sleep
Beyond the promises we keep
Do you dream of me?

If I could only read your mind
Tell me the answer I would find
Do you dream of me?
And when you're smiling in your sleep
Beyond the promises we keep
Do you dream of me?

And after all that we've been through
You've leaned on me, I've leaned on you
Do you dream of me?

Do you dream of me?

You're Not From Here

Post by Elessaria » Tue Jun 11, 2019 5:02 pm

I don't know what is going on
You turn around and touch my heart
A silent moment speaks the truth
Something has happened all at once
It should have scared me in advance
But I was falling in those eyes of yours
And so
Fear was gone
I knew there was nothing else
I'd ever want

I know you
You're not from here
I've waited for you to appear
To take my breath away
And make me weep
You're not from here
Not from this here and now
Just a touch of yours
And I fly... and I fly... and I fly

I can't get used to missing you
If this is how it's gotta be
I need an angel to watch over me
No one can hold the hands of time
But I can hold you in my mind
Over and over like a melody

For now
I'll stand still
For now
I'll be filled by the memory of your skin

I know you
You're not from here
You don't belong to lies and tears
The greatness of your soul
Makes me weep
You're not from here
Not from this here and now
Just a touch of yours
And I fly... and I fly... and I fly

Walk Me Home

Post by Elessaria » Tue Jun 18, 2019 10:17 pm


There's something in the way you roll your eyes
Takes me back to a better time
When I saw everything is good
But now you're the only thing that's good

Trying to stand up on my own two feet
This conversation ain't coming easily
And darling I know it's getting late
So what do you say we leave this place

Walk me home in the dead of night
I can't be alone with all that's on my mind, mhm
So say you'll stay with me tonight
'Cause there is so much wrong going on outside

There's something in the way I wanna cry
That makes me think we'll make it out alive
So come on and show me how we're good
I think that we could do some good, mhm

Walk me home in the dead of night
I can't be alone with all that's on my mind, mhm
So say you'll stay with me tonight
'Cause there is so much wrong going on outside

Walk me home in the dead of night
'Cause I can't be alone with all that's on my mind
Say you'll stay with me tonight
'Cause there is so much wrong going on

Walk me home in the dead of night
I can't be alone with all that's on my mind
So say you'll stay with me tonight
'Cause there is so much wrong
There is so much wrong
There is so much wrong going on outside
