Swallow The Sun - From Happiness To Dust Lyrics




It's getting late my old friend, it's time to go now
Say goodbye to all we had and set these torn sails away
You broke me down to pieces, like you always did
I'm ready to sleep now!

This tomb of my heart turned happiness to dust
Days changed to lifetimes of promises and rust
All friends around me, from happiness to dust
And I'm ready to go now where I won't be lost

Happiness to dust!

Have you come to take me home, last rays of the evening sun?
With the dream, to where I belong, to the meadows of unsung songs
I'm scarred for lifetimes in here, worn down in these battles
I'm ready to sleep now!

I dragged all these shadows behind me
Until they grew into a part of me, but I never wanted it to happen
All the steps I took, I took them for the happiness of others
But they all burned me down, burnt like an empty book

I unfolded my wings to their darkness
Stepped into all those rooms of shadows
Took those silver bullets to shield their hearts
But I'm too wounded now from these battles
Please, let me fall into a sleep of beauty for a while

It's getting late my old friend, it's time to go now
Say goodbye to all we had and set these torn sails away

Worn down in these battles
I'm ready to sleep now!

This tomb of my heart turned happiness to dust
Days changed to lifetimes of promises and rust
All friends around me, from happiness to dust
And I'm ready to go now where I won't be lost

    we lost our son Lemmy, tomorrow 3 years and one month ago. he died on drugs while his so called friends saw him collapse and did do nothing to save him.
    these lyrics are so true . his battle with his years of addiction and then this end of his live is so real in this song. !! God damned we love him so and we miss him .Lemmy Verhoeven 08/10/1987 - 27-28/03/2016. Rest in Peace, sleep softly. maybe you have peace now even though you did not want to die yet.
    This tomb of my heart
    Turned happiness to dust
    Days changed to lifetimes
    Of promises from gold to rust
    All friends around me
    From happiness to dust
    And I'm ready to go now
    Where I won't be lost

    So sorry for your loss. I had my best friend OD in front of me at a concert and had the medics on him in seconds. Thanks God, he survived. I wish I could've been that friend with your son, mad respect and deep love. I too have battled the demon of addiction, it's a slippery slope. But I love my wife and children to much to let it take me. I stopped without the usual programs, but I plan to join them just so I can convince at least one person that their life is worth so much more. In honor of your son. Orion

    Swallow the Sun
    Album Songs From The North I, II & III

    It's getting late my old friend
    It's time to go now
    Say goodbye to all we had
    And set these torn sails away
    You broke me down to pieces
    Like you always did
    I'm ready to sleep now

    This tomb of my heart turned happiness to dust
    Days changed to lifetimes of promises and rust
    All friends around me, from happiness to dust
    And I'm ready to go now where I won't be lost

    Happiness to dust!

    Have you come to take me home
    Last rays of the evening sun?
    With the dream, to where I belong
    To the meadows of unsung songs
    I'm scarred for lifetimes in here
    Worn down in these battles
    I'm ready to sleep now!

    I dragged all these shadows behind me
    Until they grew into a part of me
    But I never wanted it to happen
    All the steps I took
    I took them for the happiness of others
    But they all burned me down
    Burnt like an empty book

    I unfolded my wings to their darkness
    Stepped into all those rooms of shadows
    Took those silver bullets to shield their hearts
    But I'm too wounded now from these battles
    Please, let me fall into a sleep of beauty for a while

    It's getting late my old friend
    It's time to go now
    Say goodbye to all we had
    And set these torn sails away
    Worn down in these battles
    I'm ready to sleep now!

    This tomb of my heart turned happiness to dust
    Days changed to lifetimes of promises and rust
    All friends around me, from happiness to dust
    And I'm ready to go now where I won't be lost
