Swallow The Sun - Heartstrings Shattering Lyrics




See the ghost I have become
Save the prayers for the living ones
Feel the dark that I've become
Send your crows into the light
To fill the skies and dim the sun

Cast the shadows on my side
Fulfill the oath of the broken ones
Hallowed halls of setting suns
Lost in the vacuum of this heart

Hear my heartstrings shattering
As tombs open before me and she sang:

Bury my heart!
Cover it with the coldest stones
So it will suffer longer
Like I did in your arms...
Your arms!

You led me into the darkest night
To the deepest shades with your heart open wide
Into the battle with death on your shoulder

Like a templar knight with God on his side
Straight into the arms of your enemy
Through the flames with fire in her eyes

Saints, have mercy upon us!

Cast the shadows on my side
Fulfill the oath of the broken ones
Hallowed halls of setting suns
Lost in the vacuum of this heart

Lost in the vacuum of this heart

You led me into the darkest night
To the deepest shades with your heart open wide
Into the battle with death on your shoulder

Like a templar knight with God on his side
Straight into the arms of your enemy
Through the flames with fire in her eyes

Saints, have mercy upon us!

See the ghost I have become
Save the prayers for the living ones
Feel the dark that we've become
Send your crows into the light
To fill the skies and dim the sun

Bury my heart!
Cover it with the coldest stones
So it will suffer longer
Like I did in your arms...
Your arms!

    Heartstrings Shattering
    Swallow The Sun

    See the ghost I have become
    Save the prayers for the living ones
    Feel the dark that I've become
    Send your crows into the light
    To fill the skies and dim the sun

    Cast the shadows on my side
    Fulfil the oath of the broken ones
    Hallowed halls of setting suns
    Lost in the vacuum of this heart

    Hear my heartstrings shattering
    As tombs open before me
    And she sang

    Bury my heart
    Cover it with the coldest stones
    So it will suffer longer
    Like I did in your arms
    Like I did in your arms
    Like I did in your arms
    Your arms

    You led me into the darkest night
    To the deepest shades with your heart open wide
    Into the battle with death on your shoulder
    Like a templar knight
    With god on his side
    Straight into the arms of your enemy
    Through the flames with fire in her eyes
    Saints, have mercy upon us

    Cast the shadows on my side
    Fulfil the oath of the broken ones
    Hallowed halls of setting suns
    Lost in the vacuum of this heart
    Lost in the vacuum of this heart

    You led me into the darkest night
    To the deepest shades with your heart open wide
    Into the battle with death on your shoulder
    Like a templar knight

    Send your crows into the light
    To fill the skies and dim the sun

    Bury my heart
    Cover it with the coldest stones
    So it will suffer longer
    Like I did in your arms
    Like I did in your arms
    Like I did in your arms
    Your arms

  76. Servant of Pan

  84. NO SLEEP CLUB

    I want to like this, but it's boring :(.

    Despair

    +Composer of Extinction You're not depressed enough to like this.

    NO SLEEP CLUB

    @Esteban Aguayo That's not true. I like depressive black metal. And believe me, it goes deeper than this.

    still not loving germany

    +Esteban Aguayo You don't even have to be depressed to like this music. I always listen to this, even when I feel happy. I just love deep music.

  85. Todeswalzer

    I got a soft metal ad on this video, it seems that youtube is starting to slowly learn what ads to show me.

  86. moritoergosumband

    Wow, this is really really good! Well done guys! Doomed cheers from Sweden!

  87. Orhun Dursun

    this is a new album?

    MrYamaha06

    +Orhun Dursun Yes it is :) , Taken from the album "Songs from the North I, II & III". Century Media 2015. this new one is trilogy, I sounds about this, part II is light/acoustic stuff etc. and III is doom/funeral without clean vocals that III one.

  88. Ian Israel

    So Bloody Beautiful!!..I needed this today,as it's becoming more and more cold,more and more my own and with no one else.
    ..Dark and beautiful.

  89. Dimassa 19

    Swallow The Sun is my favorite band of all time, but i think the production of this album could be better...(the production of New Moon, for example, is perfect).

  90. Matt

    Metal from the North. \m/

  91. Marek Hadrbolec

    Reminds me of Twilight Innocence by November's doom.
    Like this. :)
