Totally new story, and a little different. I was in a few different moods as I started writing it, so forgive me. Here's a little bit about it (if you just want to get to the story, skip ahead):

Yes, the song really did inspire it. I was listening to it one day and the words 'forever,' 'taste,' 'truth,' 'lies,' and 'bleed' just kind of popped out at me, along with the two phrases 'closest to heaven that I'll ever be' and 'I don't want the world to see me 'Cause I don't think that they'd understand.' Anyway, somehow I connected to vampires, and, well, here we are.

Forgive me if it's a bit spastic at first, I promise everything will come together by the end (if not, feel free to ask questions... I do check my reviews). It kind of started out as one thing and blended into another story I had a storyline for but never got around to writing in full.

The story is told in third person, and the little narrative after the song is a note from the narrator, so to speak, or a higher being who is reflecting on a past story before she tells it.

I missing anything? Oh, and disclaimer: this may start to sound a bit like Underworld in some cases, I'm just stating here and now that I came up with it before I ever saw that, and you'll just have to take my word on it. I tried to make it a little different after I saw the movie, but I refuse to alter my work because a movie plot happens to resemble it. Everything seems to be a copy of everything else nowadays, anyway.

But, enough of my ramblings... onto the story.
