katatonia – shifts lyrics


spiraling nights in the void
weathered coat and a dagger
if i dream back my youth i can still hear you sing
a voice that will die on a mountain

and i fear that i’ve stayed here just a little too long

i had to go where you couldn’t follow
in my weariness
i still hear you singing in my mind

and all the fortunes they took away

the shifting earth beneath us
the clouds at our feet
the was made a jewel
when at night it did sleep
nothing to observe

cast in a trench of fire
i see the sky is a ceiling
and when my heart dies down
i am long gone on the fields of summer’s green
away from fall and famine

i am in every season
the one you have always known
life did not reward you
so find your way to the river and let go
