EmelÚn , where is your love ?

Across the border

Eric is broke and lives across the border
Molly has dreams of someday leaving the corner
Eileen Rose sings through a rusty tape-recorder
Late at night , as he's wishing he told her
Everything lost inside, her head on his shoulder
Now, as they dance , his blood it turns colder

What really happened that night nobody knows
How he ended her life as his blood slowly froze
Eric's now only mentioned by those who's
Rusty tape recorders play songs by Eileen Rose
Evoking the spirit of a young mans ghost

It gets cold as he enters my room
Shading my desk from the light of the moon

You are here with me now and you need to understand
Our time moves in circles with a devious plan
Under this ghost lives a heart broken man
Re-entering this world with your blood on my hand

Let me explain, he said as I choked
On his familiar voice from dimensions beyond
Vulnerable is love when loved between worlds
EmelÚn once named Molly , forever my girl
