Turn down the lights, turn down the bed
Turn down these voices inside my head
Lay down with me, tell me no lies
Just hold me close, don't patronize (don't patronize me)

'Cause I can't make you love me if you don't
You can't make your heart feel something it won't
Here in the dark, in these lonely hours
I will lay down my heart and I'll feel the power
But you won't, no, you won't
'Cause I can't make you love me if you don't

I'll close my eyes, then I won't see
The love you don't feel when you're holding me
Morning will come and I'll do what's right
Just give me till then to give up this fight (and I will give up this fight)

'Cause I can't make you love me if you don't
You can't make your heart feel something it won't
Here in the dark, in these lonely hours
I will lay down my heart and I'll feel the power
But you won't, no, you won't
'Cause I can't make you love me if you don't

No I will not lay down
I will not live my life like a ghost in this town
I am not lonely
Swear to God I'm just alone
I'm back on my feet
I can just close my eyes and forget everything
My house is empty
Every memory blown away

Oh the sound of the wind
Through my bones makes me laugh
At all the bodies I kissed and never knew
Oh the sound of a lover's sympathy
Falling down to the floor
Just barely out of reach
From me

No I will not go back
Every word that's been hiding inside of my head
Is running blindly
Look behind me nothing's left
I can sit in a room
I can hear myself breathing and be quite amused
My life is simple
Like the wrinkles on my skin

Oh the sound of the wind
Through my heart makes me glad
For all the ones that never knew my name
Oh the sound of a lover's sympathy
I had to go, could not stay here
They were always out of reach
From me


I'm going to New York. And I'm staying there.

((Quick hiatus break~ Can't promise I'll be too swift on replies.))

I was able to stand up for longer today. I'll be walking before the end of next week! Just watch!

Demyx, can we go swimming again sometime? I think it really helped.

*is sitting in her room in the Order--there aren't many other places in the complex that don't always have a number of Finders or Exorcists wandering around, and she wants a measure of privacy. Is sitting on the edge of her bed, wearing a long-skirted dress Komui lent her, swinging her legs against the bed as a movement exercise. She's wincing occasionally, but she's obviously much more mobile than she used to be. Is also singing a little rhyme in time with her swings*

To and fro from yours to Cecil St.
You wore the same shirt that you wore last week,
Should I shake your hand or kiss your cheek?
Convince you it's not lust, it's chemistry.

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat, but always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small when you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance

I hope you never fear those mountains in the distance
Never settle for the path of least resistance
Living might mean taking chances, but they're worth taking
Lovin' might be a mistake, but it's worth making
Don't let some hell bent heart leave you bitter
When you come close to selling out, reconsider
Give the heavens above more than just a passing glance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
I hope you dance
(Time is a real and constant motion always)
I hope you dance
(Rolling us along)
I hope you dance
(Tell me who)
I hope you dance
(Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
(Where those years have gone)

I hope you still feel small when you stand by the ocean
Whenever one door closes, I hope one more opens
Promise me you'll give faith a fighting chance

And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance
Dance
I hope you dance
I hope you dance
(Time is a real and constant motion always)
I hope you dance
(Rolling us along)
I hope you dance
(Tell me who)
(Wants to look back on their youth and wonder)
I hope you dance

Oh perilous place walk backwards toward you
Blink disbelieving eyes chilled to the bone
Most visibly brave no apprehended gloom
First to take this foot to virgin snow

I am a magnet for all kinds of deeper wonderment
I am a wunderkind oh oh oh oooooh
And I lift the envelope pushed far enough to believe this
I am a princess on the way to my throne

Destined to serve, destined to roam

Oh ominous place spellbound and unchild-proofed
My least favorite chill to bear alone
Compatriots in place they'd cringe if I told you
Our best back-pocket secret our bond full-blown

I am a magnet for all kinds of deeper wonderment
I am a wunderkind oh oh oh oooooh
I am a pioneer naive enough to believe this
I am a princess on the way to my throne

Destined to seek, destined to know

Most beautiful place reborn and blown off roof
My view about-face whether great will be done

I am a magnet for all kinds of deeper wonderment
I am a wunderkind oh oh oh oooooh
I am a ground-breaker naive enough to believe this
I am a princess on the way to my throne

I am a magnet for all kinds of deeper wonderment
I am a wunderkind oh oh oh oooooh
I am a Joan of Arc and smart enough to believe this
I am a princess on the way to my throne

Destined to reign, destined to roam
Destined to reign, destined to roam
Destined to reign, destined to roam
Destined to reign, destined to roam

Are we really happy here
With this lonely game we play
Looking for words to say?
Searching
But not finding understanding anyway
We're lost in a mas--masquerade

Both afraid to say
We're just too far away
From being close together from the start
We tried to talk it over
But the words got in the way
We're lost inside this lonely game we play

Thoughts of leaving disappear
Ev'ry time I see your eyes
No matter how hard I try
To understand the reasons
That we carry on this way
We're lost in this masquerade

Both afraid to say
We're just too far away
From being close together from the start

No matter how hard I try

Why do bad things keep happening to Roxas? He doesn't deserve it. I don't think Axel deserves a lot of what's happened, either.

Roxas, Demyx, Haruhi, I still have the memory device I picked up in Moulin Rouge. I don't know if it'd be any help, but if you want to try it, it's yours.

The train broke down. I like Zaza, but I didn't really expect to be here this long. Oh well.


Police cars 'round in circles
The silence gathering
You never know what's next down here
Close your eyes and shut your mouth

And I know I won't last forever
If there's nothing left in your heart for me
Baby, baby, baby, baby
Too young to die and too old
To believe in
Promises

The ambulance is singing
To streetcars in the rain
Like barracuda waiting
For the guns down in the hood

But this ain't no West Side Story
And the curtain's comin' down on me
Baby, baby, baby, baby
Too young to die and too old
To believe in
Promises

It's all sound and all fury
It's all reach and no touch
It's all life's cold bravado
All grown up and old so fast

And I know I won't last forever
If there's nothing left in you heart for me
Baby, baby, baby, baby
Too young to die and too old
I'm too young to die and too old
To believe in
Promises

Nobody in Adonis wants to talk about the grapes. Looks like I'm going to be stuck here for a while until I find something.

Although when I was going through Moulin Rouge, I found something weird. They call them memory machines. Apparently the ruler of the city had a bunch of them manufactured when his beloved died and he wanted to preserve her memory. I have no idea if they work or not not many people need them, it looks like but I got one anyway, just to see.

The pamphlet is weird: )

Looks like a scam, but who knows?

If Adonis turns out to be a dead-end, then I'll go to Rusty Nail next.

I'd better go talk to Block before he leaves the city.

And I learned a new song in Moulin Rouge. )

That took less time than I thought. I left a note for Eyguebelle, and the train stops in pretty much every city on the way to Zaza, so I can use the computers when they have them at the stations. They'd better have them in Adonis. I don't know which ones have computers or not, so if you don't hear from me for a while, that's why. Once I reach Zaza I'm going to have to try to hitch a ride with a caravan or something to Adonis, though. It's just on the border of the Drylands, and they say the sands are too loose for the train tracks.

At least the trip isn't boring.


Ride on - Through the night - Ride on
Ride on - Through the night - Ride on

There are visions, there are memories
There are echoes of thundering hooves
There are fires, there is laughter
There's the sound of a thousand voices

In the velvet of the darkness
By the silhouette of silent trees
They are watching, they are waiting
They are witnessing life's mysteries

Cascading stars on the slumbering hills
They are dancing as far as the sea
Riding o'er land, you can feel its gentle hand
Leading on to its destiny

Take me with you on this journey
Where the boundaries of time are now tossed
In cathedrals of the forest
In the words of the tongues now lost

Find the answers, ask the questions
Find the roots of an ancient tree
Take me dancing, take me singing
I'll ride on till the moon meets the sea

Sorry I haven't been around, there's been a lot of changes lately. Eyguebelle and I came to an agreement over Gramps' songs. Eyguebelle still thinks they're potentially dangerous if left the way they are, so we're changing little things in the score so that I can sing them. I kind of like it that way . . . it's kind of like Gramps' dream and mine, put together into one.

The city council finally took a vote to change the city's name. Merry Widow is the threnody of a funereal past, and an aria slips from the new lips of Widow's Kiss. :)

Speaking of arias, there's a musical that's been pieced together to celebrate the naming, and I've been invited to perform. It feels kind of strange to be rehearsing on stage, preparing to sing alone for the first time in . . . ever. But I guess I missed the rehearsal process, too. It's always nice to get together and practice with other performers before the show. Even if I don't know them that well.

I like the songs, though~ This is one of them:

A dangerous thing is
hope when you have nothing else
a simple laugh
that was the past
Growing up too fast
I wanted freedom for the rest
I want to change "not" answers to
questions like "Why can't they get what they need?"

Please let them live
Let them be
Let them take what they must need
Give them love
Give romance
Give the child its fair chance
Let love live
Let love be
Let a human heart go free
Give courage
Give romance
Teach them all how they can dance

A dangerous thing is
hope when you have nothing else
open so wide
fragile inside
Innocent hands
Reach for warmth and a place to hide
The change will come
when we collide
when we collide

Please!
Let them live
Let them be
Let them take what they must need
Give them love
Give romance
Give the child its fair chance
Let love live
Let love be
Let a human heart go free
Give courage
Give romance
Teach them all how they can dance

Children waken in their beds, wondering about the man in red
Bringing something just for them, that's what Christmas means
Friends and family home again, remembering the days back when
Faces glow with innocence, that what Christmas means
Blessed are the ones who give, who find a way to let hope live
When you help a child to hold a dream, that's what Christmas means

We all have magic tucked away, saved up for a snowy day
Love comes back when you give it away, that's what Christmas means
'Tis the season we can share, and when you try to show you care
Miracles are everywhere, that's what Christmas means

Blessed are the ones who give, who find a way to let hope live
When you help a child to hold a dream, that's what Christmas means

Blessed are the ones who give, who find a way to let hope live
When you help a child to hold a dream
When you give your heart receives, even those who don't believe will get
That's what Christmas, that's what Christmas, that's what Christmas means
