Paradise Lost - Death Walks Behind You Lyrics




Death walks behind you
Death walks behind you

Lock the door, switch the lights
You'll be so afraid tonight
Hide away from the past
Count the nightlights that you have

Start to scream, shout for help
There is no one by your side
To forget what he has done
Seems so hard to carry on

Death walks behind you
Death walks behind you

Lock the door, switch the lights
You'll be so afraid tonight
Hide away from the past
Count the nightlights that you have

Start to scream, shout for help
There is no one by your side
To forget what he has done
Seems so hard to carry on

Death walks behind you
Death walks behind you
Death walks behind you
Death walks behind you

Paradise Lost Death Walks Behind You Comments
  1. FullMetalGuy

    I love how you can hear the influence this had on Shades of God. The idiosyncratic solos, odd chord progressions and riffs that moved in between doom metal, hard rock and gothic rock. Many people would cite Black Sabbath as the instant influence for the shift PL made on Shades of God, but as the band have proven throughout their career, their influences were very diverse. And naturally, they nailed this cover.

  2. Elvis Sorna

    Not really familiar with this band, seems to me they play a style of doom metal? Either way this isn't a bad cover.

    Toure Cannon66Lucifer6

    Yes they do it's called Gothic-Doom Metal

  3. Norman de Bellefeuille

    I'm old enough to have bought the Atomic Rooster version when it came out and bought this album when it came out. This is a smart cover.

  4. Tiago Tymniak

    This is an ashamingly bad cover.

  5. Alex

    Lock the door, switch the lights
    You'll be so afraid tonight
    Hide away from the past
    Count the nightlights that you have


    Start to scream, shout for help
    There is no one by your side
    To forget what he has done
    Seems so hard to carry on

    Death walks behind you

  7. Israel Muñoz

    Nothing new only down a tone to the guitar new distortion and some little bit gutural , what a lack of inspiration

    Claudio Massimo Feliciangeli

    Great version

    Paul Seerden

    Israel Muñoz the original is from Paradise Lost... 1991

    Tiago Tymniak

  8. Mirosław Głuchowski

  9. Andrea Durrheim

    I cut my teeth on the Atomic Rooster version, but every change is an improvement. Whoever wrote the song would approve!
