Stained


I know this is impossible
But understanding that does not make it any easier…

I want to love you like Dali and Picasso and van Gogh did their paintings;
All nonsense in every way possible
Wickedly beautiful and hide secret in every stroke of color
Only those who are cursed with love could see it
And long after they died and passed, people are still talking
About how they brought magic into the world.

I want to love you like Dali and Picasso and van Gogh did their paintings;
All crazy and uncontrollable and in chaos
The kind of love that left you breathless
Because it destroys you before it dies
Leaving an empty hole of nothing that sucks like a black hole
Staining every atom in your body, ruining every bit of your mind.

I want to love you like Dali and Picasso and van Gogh did their paintings;
Demons of souls, evils in hearts, burns like hell
Just like this thing between us – it will spoil us so badly
So that nothing else could ever feel the same, like you and me and us
None of us will ever see another person without being reminded about the taste of each other
Because you’re the Will to my Lyra,* and I’m the Tiffany to your Pat.**

I want to love you like Dali and Picasso and van Gogh did their paintings;
No one but us knows what it’s like and no one understands how it feels
Because only the painter could give souls to his creations
So that after the love fades and we go separate ways
People will still talk
About how we were ruined by it, and keep on living with all the broken pieces.
