Eloy's, "Between the Times"
Misheard Lyrics:
I try to embrace the sun
She suddenly hurts me, Jeanne
Your lightning bolt it twinkles in front
What do you know, my sun?
Between the times
The tempting waves were carried by a couple o' horses
I fear the times
When burning wounds are set by radiant forces
I'm blinded by my pain
She suddenly hurts again
Your ice contraps a frame
What do you know, my pain?
Original Lyrics:
I'll try to embrace the sun
See sunbeam - hair see Jeanne
Your lightly body twinkles in fun
What do you know? My sun!?
Between the times
The tempting bells were carried by eight purple horses
I fear the times
Surviving rules were set by really unknown forces
I'm blinded by my pain
See sunbeam - hair again
Your eyes, cold drops of rain
What do you know? My pain!?
