The Shadow of Seared Hearts
by Eli Young (Elyscape)
Apologies to Henry Mancini

Have I been here, in her shadow, forever?
Has she always shined in your eyes?
Why can't I be like the sunshine in winter,
That brightens and warms up the skies?

Do you know I don't want another?
I wish you were mine
Do you think that I'm such a bother
And turn a blind eye?

Why do I cry despite our freqeunt meetings,
Though you forget them every time?
Why do I love if I won't be your darling?
Who will comfort me when I cry?

Am I the same, is there someone who loves me?
Has someone been there all this time?
Will I still love or be broken and lonely?
Who will comfort me when I cry?

The Shadow of Paris
by Henry Mancini

Why must we meet in the shadows of Paris,
Where hardly a star seems to shine?
Why can't we meet in the sunlight of Paris,
Where Paris can see you and I?

Have you come to me from another
Whose lips you have tried?
Do you still belong to another?
Is that why we hide?

Why am I cold in the sunlight of Paris,
Where laughter and song fill the skies?
Why am I warm in the shadows of Paris,
When I know that dawn means goodbye?

Why am I cold in the sunlight of Paris,
Where laughter and song fill the skies?
Why am I warm in the shadows of Paris,
When I know that dawn means goodbye?


[!filk] Somewhat belated filk of Yuki about PiroxErika, but I don't argue with my muse's timing much.
Yuki it a character who, IMO, doesn't get filked often enough. Miho and Kimiko tend to get the most. [/!filk]
