Artist: Theatre of Tragedy
Song Title: A Distance There Is
Come in out of the rain thou sayest - but thou ne'er step'st aside;
And I am trapp'd , i'm trapped
A distance there is...
None, save me and the bodkin - pitter-patter on the roof:
Behold! - 'tis not the rain; thence me it has to be -
I will not drink thy vintage wine, my dear;
Thou hast heed'd that I am of innocence, yet thou let'st thy lass into peril -
Thou let'st me be parchéd;
my heart, my heart, my heart
my heart, my heart, my heart
My heart is of frailthy, my pale skin is huéd damask.
When thou thy tears hast hidden, "Come back!", thou sayest -
There I soon am to be - but how am I to run when my bones, my heart
Thou hast me beneath -
But run thou sayest; I run, t run, i run
i run, i run, i run
i run, i run, i run
i run, i run, i run
i run, i run, i run
And there and then I behold that a time will come when I again dead will be.
Thou tell'st me to leave without delay -
I leave, i leave, i leave, ileave.
I leave with my bodkin and my tears in my hands;
Lo! - the shadows, the sky descending;
So by a dint of smite I gait ere before I run and melt together with dusk.
In my mind in which is this event,
But the season is not supposed to change anyway?!
After all those years thou left'st me down in the emotional depths -
The sombre soakéd velvet-drape is hung upon me,
Turning my feelings, turning my feelings away from our so ignorant world:
All the beautiful moments shared, deliberately push'd aside -
...a distance there is...
After all those years thou left'st me down in the emotional depths -
The sombre soakéd velvet-drape is hung upon me,
Turning my feelings away from our so ignorant world:
All the beautiful moments shared, deliberately push'd aside -
...a distance there is...
...a distance there is...
