Cusp of Eternity

Album: Pale Communion (2014)
  • A child of autumn was born
    Into a world of deceit and death
    And a land of ice
    A break of bonds would take her away
    And install a sense of loss and eternal sorrow

    She walks across the country
    She holds her head up high in the rain
    A mother is screaming for help
    And she turns around to stare
    At a scene from her memory

    She is hiding a wish in her heart
    That flows through her blood always
    And it's culled from a dream
    That someone is waiting to say her name
    And call her to his side at the cusp of eternity Writer/s: MIKAEL LARS AKERFELDT
