Swallow The Sun - 7 Hours Late Lyrics

Forgive me father, I was 7 hours late
And now you're gone
But I made it next to you, as I promised
Dressed you for your last journey

I'm dead to you now
Still holding the words that were left unsaid

Couldn't burden you with the sorrows that crushed my chest
Couldn't find the right time to share those words, why the days passed away
I'm dead to you now and will be until my own heart sees the fallen veil of night
Until the curtains open for me, to walk the same moonlit silver trail

I always will be 7 hours late

Carrying the pain of knowing, that you never knew
Why we both went through the days apart
But with the same shadows in our hearts

I can't never tell you why I wasn't there
Until they bury me in the same soil
Until we meet again, I will be 7 hours late

These rooms of shadows, echoes on these walls, this empire of loneliness
Still feeling the presence, your soul still lingering here for a while
And the dark that pours in through the night-side window
And the light that fades into the woods

Like fireflies dancing between the rusted trees
The light that escaped from my side
Glowing in the woods, waving its last goodbye until its gone

And then it's dark!

Swallow The Sun 7 Hours Late Comments
  1. Kain Lust

    Today Juha Raivio shared this video and said "Three years ago this day I was 7 hours late to see you for the last time. Miss you father".


    I have great respect for Juha Raivio -- Swallow The Sun's music is amazing. I lost my father recently, so I can really relate to this song. May Juha's father rest in peace.
