Opeth

To Bid You Farewell

I am awaiting
the sunrise
Gazing modestly
through the coldest morning
Once it came you lied
Embracing us over
autumn's proud treetops
I stand motionless
In a parade of falling rain
Your voice I cannot hear
As I am falling again
Devotion eludes
And in sadness I lumber
In my own ashes
I am standing without a soul
She wept and whispered: "I know..."
We walked into the night
Am I to bid you farewell?
Why can't you see that I try
When every tear I shed
Is for you?
