Pain Of Salvation - Sisters Lyrics

When all are dizzy and happy from too much wine
I leave the party behind
To be alone with my thoughts and this spinning mind
Through this cold night
But there she stands

And she walks like you
And she smiles almost like you
A child of the wild just like you

For a second I think I get a glimpse
Of the real her, behind
She's warm and fragile
With smiles that reach to her eyes
But just this moment,
A change so sublime

If she looked me deep into my eyes
And softly asked me too
I'd be in her bed and in her flesh
And waste a life I knew

So I hold my breath and close my eyes
And focus on the wine
Let this trembling moment pass us by
So I could say goodnight

But then, an impulse
I almost touched her face
Before I pulled back my hand
And we get nervous
We laugh and she spills her wine
Both so awkward, for what's on our mind

And she talks like you
And she smells almost like you
A child of the wild just like you
But she's not all you
Even strives not to be you
Just like every sister would do

And perhaps it's the want
Of you in her eyes
But I want her this one single time
...Just this one time

If she looked me deep into my eyes
And softly asked me too
I'd be in her bed and in her flesh
And waste a life I knew

So I hold my breath and close my eyes
And focus on the wine
Let this trembling moment pass us by
So I could say goodnight

If I'd looked into her eyes
And softly asked her too
She would give herself and give her flesh
And waste a life she knew

So we hold our breath, and close our eyes
And take a sip of wine
But this thirst has emptied every glass
And we should say goodnight

...God, help me say goodnight.

  21. Ahmet Fatsa

    Ve eğer gözlerimin içine baksa ve kibarca isteseydi, onun bedeninde ve teninde olurdum ve biliyorum ki hayatımı boşa harcardım.
    Ben de nefesimi tuttum, gözlerimi kapadım ve şarabıma odaklandım


    Sen olmamaya çalıştı, her kardeşin yapacağı gibi.

    Absolutely amazing song, both music and lyrics...
    Its chorus melody must have been fundamentally inspired by ''Secret Garden - Nocturne''.

  33. Сидор Зиялович

    Çünkü sen keşfedilemeyecek kadar kıyıda köşede,bir damla suyla sönebilecek kadar küçük bir ateşin güzelliğindesin...Keşfetmesinler.Öldürsünler beni,mezarımın üzerinede yazsınlar;Kurtuluşun acısından öldü.


    Teşekkürler bunun için, okuması güzeldi

  34. Diana Nuria

    Daniel Gildenlöw... his voice is perfect as always!

  35. Talita Botana

    Awesome lyrics

  36. Σοφία Πόταρη Ταϋγέτη

    Beloved great band!!

  37. foredance

    i dont understand the lyrics, gildenlow is 2deep4me, can someone explain?


    No, it's really the sister of his wife,

    "But she's not all you
    Even strives not to be you
    Just like every sister would do"

    It cannot be any random girls, at least the bff of his wife, or his real sister. Since she smells and look the same, it must be her real family sister ;-)


    still don't know if she's actually sister of his partner. He's just saying that to emphasize how similar she is. One important word is he "waste" the life he knew or she waste the life she knew. So his gf/wife is still alive and he know this girl has some significant other as well. In other songs in the album, I believe he banged her.


    +bonedface It's pretty clear in the lyrics that it's the sister.
    "But she's not all you
    Even strives not to be you
    Just like every sister would do"

    Striving not to be like her sister makes sense. Striving not to be like a random person that is very similar to herself makes...well less sense.


    Still not sure because this is telling in the perspective of the man who knows them. Not in the girl perspective. Idk about what you think but imo the guy can say one strives to be another one if he want, just to make a point.
    Also right at the next line it blurs the meaning again: "Just like every sister would do". If these are sisters then insist that line again would make less sense to me.

    Osman Furkan YILDIRIM

    @bonedface sister in law

  38. ganondorfchampin

    Man this band is so great, absolutely beautiful. Prog band that actually demonstrates genuine emotion. 

  39. alfa mi

    If she looked me deep into my eyes
    And softly asked me too
    I'd be in her bed and in her flesh
    And waste a life I knew

  40. vodkamartini84

    Ca emporte... du grand POS

  41. JadePenguin

    @Moctop came here to say just that! Nocturne was the 1995 Eurovision winning song. But they're still totally different otherwise - Nocturne is mostly instrumental and on violin. I'd be very surprised if PoS didn't take that part from there though.

  42. Vatian

    Sounds a bit like Shrek - Fairytale

    bryan macneil

    Haha, I noticed that too.


    a bit? its fcking stolen or smt

    Dionisis Tsonis

    This specific melody is so basic that it could be in almost any song. It also sounds similar to Secret Garden's Nocturne. However there are no more similarities. Three different songs for any trained ear, with a similar part. However, Fairytale is a much simpler song, with fewer changes, something that makes sense as it is a soundtrack. Lovely though. Also, saying that any of the songs "stole" from each other is ridiculous. Similarity doesn't mean plagiarism. It's like having a novel about a murder that happened on a train, and claiming it's a rip off of Murder on the Orient Express. Read the rest of the book, listen to the rest of the song.

    Bakalaudia DL

    @Dionisis Tsonis you are totally right, this little part could be a simple coincidence

    Josef Stalin

    @Dionisis Tsonis Yes nocturne is what I thought it sounded like, glad Im not insane.

  43. Caio Gouveia

    looks like H.I.M


    No,no it doesn't.

    Not Amused

    That's offensive to PoS

    Bert Berw

    Seriously? H.I.M? Fuck off

    Erisdare Bel

    Not like H.I.M at all. The only striking similarity, I would say, is that both Daniel and Ville have incredible vocal ranges. Also, H.I.M is not bad. No need to be elitist about it. 

    Giuseppe Ab Aeterno

    I love H. I. M. My friend but absolutely not xD

  44. vesamnn


  45. Moctop

    The part that goes "and she walks, like you, and she smiles, almost like you" is really similar to "nocturne" by secret garden.

    Ра Дро


  46. Mia Armonia

    Just this one time....

  47. Eric Ens

    no, his wife/girlfriend's sister.

  48. jadeloveselliott

    This song makes me feel soooooo much ........

  49. pepperbelly68

    it means you get it. you feel. thats why PoS exists. to provoke emotion.

  50. SirJethro

    There is piece called "It is you" (search for the piano version) from the Shrek Soundtrack. It reminds me of Sisters :)

  51. MasterJebbly

    Hah, i feel like I get what you're saying at the same time as I don't. Explain?

  52. SangoCIoud

    This music makes me sad. It's beautiful.

  53. Saša Mladenović

    ...God, help me say goodnight

  54. viki vik

    tell me where it hurts and this heartbreaking!

  55. Roberto Ramon Messina


  56. SirJethro

    Inspired by Shrek? ;)

  57. DIABLOVT12

    Great song, great band...
