Follow me into my kingdom of shade Take off your smile, but leave your fears outside Cause there's nothing bad, Nothing will harm you here None of my wicked games is meant for you Come to me Don't be afraid of me 'Cause you're the only one I'd never hurt Come to me Don't run away from me I promise you my evil plans will leave you untouched Suddenly I'm so ashamed of me I cannot hide from your merciless eyes I'm so scared to show you who I am I don't want you to hate me more than you already do Come to me Don't be afraid of me 'Cause you're the only one I'd never hurt Come to me Don't run away from me I promise you my evil plans will let you untouched Everything turned to dust As I came to please my lust I failed to keep my promïse...

Chandeliers and golden doors, tell me baby Is this the place you told me you would take me to? The heaven of the doomed? Stars collide every time a soldier falls In this sweet war we're fighting for our souls Baby, baby Don't go breaking my heart Don't go breaking my heart Let's have one more dance before the armies come And blades tear us apart Baby, baby The boundaries that we traced Were meant for someone else We're all just masks and scars We're all just masks and scars. Pride is not a sin, I'm gonna wear my medals on display, upon my chest, above my heart Down under my clothes the mouthshapes whisper softly All the fingerprints still moving on my skin I don't own anything Separate truths, will they ever find the middle? Raise the flag, it's time we called a truce I'm holding tight to you I'm floating like a feather in your arms Wishing this dance would last forever And look at all these lights And look at all this glitter And out of all the people Only you and I, we know... Baby, baby, don't go breaking my heart Don't go breaking my heart I've given you my freedom, in exchange you gave me yours I guess that's how love works Baby, baby Don't go breaking my heart Don't go breaking my heart Let's have one more dance before the armies come And blades tear as apart Baby, baby You shouldn't break my heart Now that you know that We're both just masks and scars We're both just masks and scars

about

'Piano powered fairy tales infused with the kind of romanticism that once cause the masses to become enthralled with the deity that is Kate Bush.'

'Dramatic and poignant lyrics and music, make Jewelia’s songs an intense and moving, listening experience.'

'Jewelia does not lack a sense of the dramatic and, with the kind of scaled up and scaled out arrangements that sometimes disguise her rather dark poetic intentions, she throws her all into a successful attempt at artistic purity with “Charon” being the first song to pick up the baton and take late night misadventures to an almost spiritual level. “Masks and Scars”, however, is the song that really stokes the flames of passion with a trip towards the theatre pretty much inevitable as the lyrics simultaneously confide “… stars collide every time a soldier falls”. You can see the big picture now. Then, as if to reinforce those very dramatic motivations, the neo classical melancholy of “Sail Away” climbs the big ballad mountain and advertises Jewelia’s true intentions to the world.' - Bluesbunny.com
