I’m obsessed.. With Swedes!

Someone asked me the other day if I’d ever gotten a song on my mind to the extend where it’d be the first thing I thought of when I woke in the morning and then just being stuck in it all day.. Yes, thank you very much.. And it’s a mighty depressing one, too.. Suits the weather juuuust fine.. From our Swedish friends in Opeth:

Harvest 

Stay with me awhile
Rise above the vile
Name my final rest
Poured into my chest

Into the orchard I walk peering way past the gate
Wilted scenes for us who couldn’t wait
Drained by the coldest caress, stalking shadows ahead
Halo of death, all I see is departure
Mourner’s lament but it’s me who’s the martyr

Pledge yourself to me
Never leave me be
Sweat breaks on my brow
Given time ends now

Into the orchard I walk peering way past the gate
Wilted scenes for us who couldn’t wait
Drained by the coldest caress, stalking shadows ahead
Halo of death, all I see is departure
Mourner’s lament but it’s me who’s the martyr

Spirit painted sin
Embers neath my skin
Veiled in pale embrace
Reached and touched my face

Into the orchard I walk peering way past the gate
Wilted scenes for us who couldn’t wait
Drained by the coldest caress, stalking shadows ahead
(Release your grip, let me go, into the night)
Halo of death, all I see is departure
Mourner’s lament but it’s me who’s the martyr

That’s it for now, another update coming up some time tonight when I have the time to jot down the joyful events of the day.

  1. Hey, that was me… How can you forget 😉 Nah, it’s okay… Btw had a blast today making the communication thingy. Which is kinda weird… see you Friday

  2. You of anyone should know that my brain’s working increasingly worse with age 😉 Nah, actually, I was pretty sure it was you.. (Easy for me to say now, huh? 😉 ) .. And yep, it really was a blast.. Who’d have “thunk” it? Looking forward to our trip Friday 🙂
