The Path
by HIM

Album: Love Metal (2003)
  • There is no turning back
    From this unending path of mine
    Serpentine and black
    It stands before my eyes
    To hell and back
    It will lead me once more
    It's all I have as I stumble in
    Out of grace

    I walk through the gardens
    Of dying light
    And cross all the rivers
    Deep and dark as the night
    Searching for a reason
    Why time would've passed us by

    With every step I take
    The less I know myself
    And every vow I break on my way towards your heart
    Countless times I've prayed
    For forgiveness
    But Gods just laughed at my face
    And this path remains
    Leading me into solitude arms

    I see through the darkness
    My way back home
    The journey seems endless
    But I'll carry on
    The shadows will rise
    And they will fall
    And our night drowns in dawn

    Amidst all the tears there's a smile
    That all angels will greet with an envious song
    One look into strangers eyes
    And I know where I belong

    I walk through the gardens
    Of dying light
    And cross all the rivers
    Deep and dark as the night
    Searching for a reason
    Why time would've passed us by

    Oh I see through the darkness
    My way back home
    The journey seems endless
    But I'll carry on
    The shadows will rise
    And they will fall
    And our night drowns in dawn
