My soul has left, I shall follow soon. She awaits me on the other side, I'm coming.

My soul has died, yet I lived on,
Now time has come, soon I'll be gone
She comes for me, the eathing night
And soothes my pained and ravaged heart

No courage left to bear this pain
Her cold embrace I welcome in
As life drains slowly from my shell
I step beyond the gates of hell.

The veil is thin I see it now
The world beyond for me calls out
I wait no more to leave this world
My long lost love once more to hold

From now on, by tempest tossed
Together we're forever lost
In burning flames or howling winds
We're unforgiven for our sins

"I missed thee love"
"Oh I did too"
"I came for thee"
"I stayed for you"
Between the worlds of live and dead
Together we'll forever tread.

Now hand in hand
in darkness cold
We wander in between the worlds

Now Hand in hand
In silence chill
I hold thee tight, I love thee still
