Even When It’s Late

“ ’ve waited for eternity, for love to come and visit me
I yearned for you unknowingly, you came to me unexpectedly. Beyond impossibilities and laws of immortality…I’ll come even when it’s late, so don’t wait”

Even When It’s Late

I’ll see you at the break of dawn, cause I’ll be leaving soon
I’ll be gone for just a while but I will think of you
I will be missing until dawn…I’ll just hang around the town
Don’t cry cause I’ll be coming late, don’t wait

My life has been around so long, the night is where my life belongs
I’ll stay if that is what it takes, I’ll meddle with my fate
I’m free when twilight starts around me, the dark is just so overwhelming
Don’t cry cause I’ll be coming late, don’t wait…

I’ve waited for eternity, for love to come and visit me
I yearned for you unknowingly, you came to me unexpectedly
Beyond impossibilities and laws of immortality
I’ll come even when it’s late, so don’t wait

It doesn’t matter what we are, just promise me you’ll not be gone
As long as love is in our hearts, no force can keep us far apart
Beyond impossibilities and laws of immortality
I’ll come even when it’s late, so don’t wait

Don’t fear, our love will be here
And darkness can’t make our love dim
In time I will feel your embrace, then we’ll soar through time and space

A Vampire Love Song

One of the songs I have written was used in an episode of a TV series in Asia. It was a reggae love song that doesn’t talk about children at all. During my fee negotiations with the producer, I told her: ”give me penny but feed the street children outside your studio…” Not all my songs are written thematically to artistically represent the marginalized. I believe that all songs in any genres can be dedicated to worthy causes.

That being said, “Even When It’s Late” is a vampire love song. It was written when one of my staff asked me to write one. She literally asked me: “If a vampire movie producer asks you to write a song for a vampire movie, can you write one?”…I finished writing the song one (1) hour later – words and music. It’s a fun song to write particularly the lyrics. It’s not everyday that you get to imagine yourself as vampire…I got to be one even for just an hour.
