journcy The first three lines of this song are always, always a sucker punch to me. This song has become one and the same with Eternal in my heart. (I just wish I could choose two favorite tracks so I could mention how perfectly Celestial Song encapsulates the emotions of the epilogue) Favorite track: VIII. Leaking.

mathie darling what will we find inside
behind a mask which hides
love what will you uncover
something surely lies
but the truth was never yours to see Favorite track: VII. Chasing the Sun.

Track Name: I. Will I Ever Feel Better?
Servant to the sun, patient of the moon
My teacher, please be with me soon
So far away

Feathers in bed I slept on the floor
Smell of tea brewed in the morning
She's come to stay

I'll write home, it's due
I want my home with you

Cider and gin, mustache made of foam
I can write letters but I'll never be home
It's far away

Blankets of wings kept me safe and warm
From this union our reunion is a coming storm
She's weak and frayed

I'll write home, it's due
I want my home with you

Will I ever feel better?
Will I ever feel better?
Will I ever feel better?
I don't know

I wanna rest, this day has been too long
I know she's waiting and she doesn't belong
What will I say?

Backrubs in bed, teacher close the door
You're the princess, I'll sleep on the floor
I should go away

I'll write home, it's due
I want my home with you

Will I ever feel better?
Will I ever feel better?
Will I ever feel better?
I don't know
Track Name: II. Memories, Part 1
Empty bliss
You dream of thoughts and memories
Some will wed and some will kiss
But some stay trapped in memories

I sent invitations
Everyone will be there
Why do we keep meeting up like this?
You’re perfect again!

I wanted to show you
I could be like you
Maybe you would see

My empty bliss
I dream of thoughts and memories
Some will wed and some will kiss
But I will live in memories

“It is the sorrow of the long-lived to see something they love submit inevitably to change. But it is their joy to watch it grow.”
- Wise words, from long ago

Gone amiss
Find comfort in your memories
Some will grow a mask that fits
But some stay locked in memories

Empty bliss
Dreams of fading memories
It’s surely fine to reminisce
But some get lost in memories

You said you’d always be here for me
You promised
Track Name: III. Something More
Princess in bed — slept drunk on the floor
In the morning we’ll do something more

I wonder about the whim which changed my life
Is coincidence or destiny my guide
Did our stars align, if so what for
On a whim I became something more

Keep your head off the ground
She’s sleeping so don’t make a sound
Let me sleep in your shadow
I love the way at night you glow

“You are a statue I can kick you
You are a statue by my spell”

I’m sober before sunrise, out the door
On your whim I became something more

“You are a statue I can kick you
You are a statue by my spell
You are a statue twice I’ll kick you
You are a statue as you fell”

If you wanna talk
I can make some time
I can brew some tea
As you close your eyes

If you wanna sleep
Take the bed it’s fine
A familiar scene
But now the set is mine
Track Name: IV. Memories, Part 2
Sweet herbal tea pooled in the cup. Celestia and Twilight Sparkle gratefully sniffed the plume of steam that rose from it, smiling at each other, each taking a small amount of simple joy in the little ritual.

Empty bliss
I can make new memories
In your mind, I finally fit
Living in new memories

Slowly kiss
Aren’t these happy memories?
I’m your student, you’re my mistress
My heart surely lives for these

Let me crawl into your mind
No one ever has to find me again
And I can play pretend
Track Name: V. Twilight
This place is old and it remembers
It helps to tell the story through
This old staircase twirls and winds
please share the history of you

Sun must set
Moon must rise
Jealousy in her eyes
A thousand years, the time it flies
It’s time to set
Twilight skies

Forced by the wretched nightmare
She over came that cycle then
Reassured her sister that she was fine
It seems she’s setting again

Sun must set
Moon must rise
Jealousy in her eyes
A thousand years, the time it flies
It’s time to set
Twilight skies

This place is old and it remembers
Track Name: VI. Inside Her Mind
Another chance to step inside her mind
Frantically searching for the place she lies

Miles of sand and not a host in sight
Maybe I’ll find her with the words I write
Can’t use my magic so I’ll carve the floor
Cavernous castles I create the door

Your letters light my darkest skies
Is that magic in your eyes?

This memory is purely falsified
Change of location, reinsure the pride
False information for your matricide
No explanation nor no study guide

Your letters light my darkest skies
Is that friendship in your eyes?
These rooms are old and so is she
Can your love set her free?

Chasing the fragments of the life she lied
Nobody knows what secrets lie inside

Searching for something I’m too lost to find
Have to stay clever when inside her mind

As you’re withering away
You can write her in your journal
As the sun she has to set
But all her love will be eternal
Track Name: VII. Chasing the Sun
Don’t go chasing the sun
As she climbs to the highest tower inside her mind
Don’t assume that it’s done
Ancient bindings are the highest power and hard to find

I can feel you here
Is the real you near

Now she’s not here at all
And who will catch you when you fall
Who will love you when you’re on your own
Go through the garden
Around every stone wall
and inside the hedges she’s all alone

You’re so hard to find
I know that you’re dying
So hard to say goodbye
Leave your mask behind
Track Name: VIII. Leaking
I won't tell you
What I've been through
You just watched it all
When you fall
From the sky
I promise I won't cry

That's my heart keeping time
Faster than both yours combined
Your legs have been tied
But I'll stay by your side

And my eyes are just leaking
And my eyes.... my eyes...

I forgive you
You just lost control
And your soul
Might be scarred
But I hope it's not too hard

As for me
Here I'll be
Left in legacy
When you wake
Promise you'll take
A new protege

No, my eyes are not weeping...
No, my eyes... my eyes...

Let the door close
"And so it goes"
Punishment for every crime
Don't curse time
I will be fine

And my eyes are just leaking...
and my eyes... my eyes...

Wife to the sun
Sister to the moon
It means the world that you came home so soon
Track Name: Epilogue: Celestial Song
You were here for a moment
But for you, it was just your life
It's the tragedy of those who live forever
To watch the ones that they love die

I have lived a thousand life times
I've seen cities rise and fall, too
But I'd trade everything I've ever had
For just one more moment alone with you

Day and night they are eternal
But twilight only lasts so long
Legacy can not replace a life
But we all have to move on
So I'll write your name forever
In a celestial song

I take tea alone in the gardens
For without you it's not the same
Sometimes I see your face in corners
But when I turn and call your name
It's just a shadow or a trick of light
My longing heart's been fooled once again

I can't grasp that you won't return
When you feel so alive in every dream
You'd think that by this age that I'd have learned
That senses are never what they seem

Day and night they are eternal
But twilight only lasts so long
Legacy can not replace a life
But we all have to move on
So I'll write your name forever
In a celestial song
