The streets are dark, my pulse is flat-lined
As I'm running to you
You sit completely unaware of what I'm about to do
The air is thick with tension much like when we are together
My fangs are aching as I'm pondering about you and I forever

As I round your corner
I am nervous that you won't be my lover
I knock three times and hope that my pale complexion won't blow my cover
You answer the door with your innocent face
Would you like to leave this human race, tonight?

Eternity will never be enough for me
And eternally will live our infallible love

My brain is pumping an unusual secretion of lust
Your eyes are softer now
And your chin, it drips a bloody color of rust
I am raising up the stakes of this round, I am playing for keeps
Oh, would you like to leave this human race, tonight?

Eternity will never be enough for me
And eternally will live our infallible love

Follow me into the sea
We'll drown together and immortalize you and me
Leave behind this lonely town
We're both better than this, it's not worth being down

Eternity will never be enough for me
And eternally will live our infallible love

Follow me into the sea
We'll drown together and immortalize you and me
Leave behind this lonely town (eternally)
We're both better than this, it's not worth being down (eternally)

    (except the fact that Edward is not wanting to turn Bella...okay it's nothing like TWILIGHT but still that's just what comes to mind)

    I love how everyone says this song reminds them of "Twilight." Well, sad to break it to you, this song wasn't meant for Twilight. Nick Thomas probably has never read the series, and probably has never touched an Anne Rice book. So these books weren't he source of his inspiration. But I will admit, this song does remind me of Twilight, kind of reminds me of the first and fourth book. But, I didn't realize that until after I read the books, since I've known TSC for awhile.
    This song is about a Vampire turning a mortal immortal, and this imortal is his "love." I'll explain the meanings verse by verse.

    Line 1 & 2 : These lines makes it obvious that he is of the dead/immortal.
    Line 3 : This girl is talking about is oblivious to the fact that he's a vampire/demon type thing.
    Line 4 : This is talking about his thirst for her blood, how he wants it, but he loves her too much to kill her.
    Line 5 : He wants to make her what he is, so the thirst will no longer come between him and her.

    As I round your corner
    I am nervous that you won't be my lover
    I knock three times and hope that my pale complexion won't blow my cover

    Would you like to leave this human race, tonight?

    Line 1 & 2 : He is afraid that if she finds out that he's a vampire, she won't love him.
    Line 3 : Again, hoping that she doesn't find out the wrong way.
    Line 4 & 5 : He wants her to become one of him.
    ~~~
    Eternity will never be enough for me
    And eternally will live our infallible love

    Line 1 : Self-explanatory. Eternity isn't enough for him and her, he wants more.
    Line 2 : Once she becomes immortal, they will love forever.

    Line 1 : He wants her, or blood. It's obviously lust for something.
    Line 2 & 3 : She's a vampire now, and her thirst made her eyes hard. After she has fed, he eyes grew softer.
    Line 4 : Now that she's a vampire, he doesn't have to be careful with her.
    Line 5 : Just a repeat, but she's a vampire now.

    Follow me into the sea
    We'll drown together and immortalize you and me
    Leave behind this lonely town
    We're both better than this, it's not worth being down

    Line 1 & 2 : This one is kind of hard to guess, but I think it's since that they're both immortal, they are unable to be killed. I gues she's being sarcastic.
    Line 3 & 4 : This is the line that reminds me of Twilight. She's depressed and she's worrying about the saftey of the people around her. She knows that now that's she's a vampire, she cannot be around the people she loves, because she is afraid that she may expose herself and take their life.

    Well, that's pretty much the meaning of the whole song. Vampire meets girl, girl meets Vampire. Vampire wants girl to be his forever, so girl becomes Vampire.
    Very much like Twilight, but it wasn't meant for the film/book.

    this is supposed to be for twilight, i think. because this was on 'edwards' myspace. good point though, he doesnt want to turn bella, but he does. Twilight is my obsession. OBSESSION. Like forreal.

    i got reminded of twilight too.
    ironically though, nick thomas never read the series. he didn't even read anne rice.

    btw, though i enjoyed twilight, i found breaking dawn to be such a letdown. and im being nice.

    This reminds me of Twilight, even though Edward doesn't HAVE FANGS and he doesn't want to change Bella. I think it could work for other vampires, though...
