Aegri Somnia Lyrics

5. Aegri Somnia (6:15)
Embrace of night. Across mist and moor, she draws ever near. Behind austere walls I lay, longing
Come the midnight hour, I feel her cold caress. Her eyes shall pierce my soul tonight

Cold shrouds of earth, beneath she sleeps. At her cold visage, my heart still weeps
Though in my mind and tortured sheets, she comes to me in lust we meet

Aegri somnia
At her cold touch I shiver

Dark is the night, though darker still are the times, that seem ever so unclear and fogged with thoughts of her, reminding me
But for the dreadful sun, the light would never find my bed. I could remain in peace with thee

With unearthly light, thou art lovely still. Though beautiful in life, now flawless in death
Thy lips beckon me as desire flames. My will dissolves in your cold embrace

Aegri somnia
Within my ear she whispers, "awaken and be with me forever"

Shaking, I await for her sight. Through fever, my eyes search the room
Empty. When shall my lover return? Hell's fury shall come dawning soon
I beg thee to claim me tonight, so that I need not suffer the light
The sun's fire brings with it no respite. Embrace me in unending night, my love

The days seem longer without her touch. Awake and dreaming of her presence
I know she will come to me tonight. I'll wait for her again
For in life or death, I'll be with her forever
