(Verse 1)
I watch you dance from afar
with people watching, people laughing
Why do I keep thinking about you
when I don't even know who you are?

(Bridge 1)
Ablaze from a vision so enchanting
I can't sleep---your feet tiptoe through all of my nightmares
All night I torture myself with sweet impossibilities
'til I'm too weak to fight for the truth

Is it a crime?
Fascination with someone you've only seen twice?
Infatuation with someone you've only seen three times?
Is it a crime
that I want to press your lips to mine?

(Verse 2)
You waste your beauty on the weak,
on the common, the unworthy
If you could see what I could give you
I hope that you would change your mind

(Bridge 2)
I'd sacrifice it all to have you
Throw my life away to start one with you
We'd both be free from this hell
if you would just come willingly
and succumb to the unholy truth

Repeat chorus

(Verse 3)
Why do I wake whispering your name?
I'll never know you, never hold you
Yet I have failed to put out the flames
that burn and burn for you

(Bridge 3)
Another day, another lifetime...
Our hearts would meld together like they were made to
There's an inferno in my mind
that's come so close to killing me
with the poison that lies in the truth

Repeat chorus
*Made a test recording (a capella): *

A song about twisted, obsessive, delusional infatuation...

I started writing this song years ago (when I was about 14). Originally, it was just about a crush that I had on a male librarian (don't ask).

When I started this DA account, I came across this old song and wanted to change it. So I decided to draw heavily upon a relationship in one of my favorite novels, Notre-Dame de Paris by Victor Hugo. I wanted to capture in a song the obsession that Claude Frollo has for Esmeralda.

Absolutely love it. And I feel you got the obsession part down flawlessly.

Loved it!  You have such a beautiful rich and mature voice.  Have you ever listened to the great Mahalia Jackson?  Some of your lower tones remind me of her qualities.

Someone on the Internet felt like this towards me, and they came and told me. But I'm not interested... he is a guy (I'm too). Now he won't let be alone. He is not really bugging me (a lot), but still... hmm...
maybe that inspires you? Probably not, but I wanted to say!

Oh dear! Sorry to hear you have a stalker! Hope he will respect your space and stop bothering you.

Thanks for the comment! Yes, I've had these kind of infatuations but luckily I was usually too chicken to act on them and make the object of my affection uncomfortable (except in one case :O)
