Author's Note: I didn't think I'd ever do K/S, but a song called "Iris" that plays on the radio practically every day at my workplace was so absolutely expressive of Spock's feelings for his captain in 2267 that I couldn't resist adding a few lines to each verse to clarify the meaning. (The song is sung by the "Goo Goo Dolls"--admittedly not a very Vulcanish name for a band--but I did hear it on a station called "104.1, The Point"!)











i am driven to join her forever



as i'm drawn to her side by plak tau



but i'd give up forever to touch you



'cause i know that you feel me somehow







for your link to my soul is far stronger



than hers through that childhood vow



you're the closest to heaven i'll ever be



and i don't want to go home right now







please lock me away from my duty



prevent me from taking her hand



i don't want the world to see me



i don't think that they'd understand







when logic is shattered to pieces



when passion has burst through the dam



when everything's made to be broken



i just want you to know who i am







i'm someone whose heart doesn't answer



the call of the blood of his wife



and all i can taste is this moment



and all i can breathe is your life







but the fever is forcing me homeward



it won't let me crawl off and die



and sooner or later it's over



i just don't want to miss you tonight







and i ache from the thought that i have to



as i'm pulled to the ancestral sands



and i don't want the world to see me



i don't think that they'd understand







oh why can't i tell you i want you



and leave her to some other man



when everything's made to be broken



i just want you to know who i am







when you hide that you can't hide emotion



but you're giving away the disguise



you can't fight the tears that aren't coming



or the moment of truth in your lies







as I wound you, you give futile payment



for the knowledge that you can survive



when everything feels like the movies



and you bleed just to know you're alive







no human could fathom this madness



that has left you destroyed by my hand



i don't want the world to see me



i don't think that they'd understand







but i've found you alive and must tell you



before i can lose you again



when everything's made to be broken



i just want you to know who i am
