April Ethereal Lyrics

2. April Ethereal (8:41)
Track rating :  95.6 / 100       Votes :  8       [ ]
It was me, peering through the looking-glass.
Beyond the embrace of Christ.
Like the secret face within the tapestry.
Like a bird of prey over the crest.

And she was swathed in sorrow,
As if born within its mask.
Her candlelight snuffed, the icon smiled.
Emptiness followed by her wake.

I could clasp her in undying love.
Within ghostlike rapture
The final word was mine.
She faced me in awe.

It was a token of ebony colour.
Embodied in faint vapour.
Wandering through April´s fire.
Compelled to grasp and to hold the one that was you.

I will endure, hide away.
I would outrun the scythe, glaring with failure.
It is a mere destiny I thought,
A threshold I had crossed before.

The rain was waving goodbye,
And when the night came
The forest folded its branches around me.
Something passed by, and I went into a dream.

She laughing and weeping at once:
"take me away".
I don't know how or why,
I´ll never know When.
