Swallow The Sun - Pray For The Winds To Come Lyrics




Wind across the barren land
Lift my wings from the desert sand
My spirit is broken, but not my hands
To write these lines in the sand

Deceivers, unbelievers
Fall on your knees and pray for the winds to come
Undying and defying North
Winter, bless your child, I'm coming home!

Sun burns my eyes in this strange land
Vast fields of sand from where I stand
My ships are gone, but the sea will carry me
Under your skies

Deceivers, unbelievers
Fall on your knees and pray for the winds to come
Undying and defying North
Winter, bless your child, I'm coming home!

The starlit night sky with unknown patterns above
Abandoned on these far away shores
Left alone with the memory of the trees, the snow and the lakes
Tonight I will catch the wind and escape this land of burning sun

Deceivers, unbelievers
Fall on your knees and pray for the winds to come
Undying and defying North
Winter, bless your child, I'm coming home!

Wind across the barren land
Lift my wings from these desert sands

Deceivers, unbelievers
Fall on your knees and pray for the winds to come
Undying and defying North
Winter, bless your child, I'm coming home!

    Pray For The Winds To Come
    Swallow The Sun

    Wind across the barren land
    Lift my wings from the desert sand
    My spirit is broken, but not my hands
    To write these lines in the sand

    Deceivers, unbelievers
    Fall on your knees
    And pray for the winds to come
    Undying and defying North
    WInter bless your child
    I'm coming home

    Sun burns my eyes in this strange land
    Vast fields of sand from where I stand
    My ships are gone, but the sea will carry me
    Under your skies

    Deceivers, unbelievers
    Fall on your knees
    And pray for the winds to come
    Undying and defying North
    WInter bless your child
    I'm coming home

    The starlit night sky, with unknown patterns above
    Abandoned on these far away shores
    Left alone with the memory
    Of the trees, the snow and the lakes
    Tonight I will catch the wind
    And escape this land of burning sun

    Deceivers, unbelievers
    Fall on your knees
    And pray for the winds to come
    Undying and defying North
    WInter bless your child
    I'm coming home

    Wind across the barrel land
    Lift my wings from these desert sands

    Deceivers, unbelievers
    Fall on your knees
    And pray for the winds to come
    Undying and defying North
    WInter bless your child
    I'm coming home

  10. James Bruce

    Everyone on here should try Trees of Eternity they have some of the same band members and theyre amazing!

  11. Hermanita

    Such a beautiful piece of art <3

  12. David Taciturno

    Hermosa cancion, y a los pelotudos yankees, dejen de hablar mierda, vayan a escuchar justin gayber. Stupid yankee. Swallow the sun is beautiful :3

  13. Lil Noose

    :"(((((

  14. TheBaldMan28

    im not sure of my emotion after previously listening to Metallica's "Fade to black"

  15. Nevermorian

    That first chorus...all the layers in the background, how they unleash that melancholic beauty...wow. Just wow.

  16. Jamal Ghani

    No offense, good music but looks a "grunge + metal"...

  17. Stu Thorpe

    haunting,beautiful...

  18. gillywibble

    God I love this band. What a fantastic album.

  19. tenofswords618

    favorite album this year

  20. hvareno

    So beautiful, so mesmerising... Songs From The North is one of the best albums in 2015, a true masterpiece.

  21. Orhun Dursun

    allahiniza kurban cok iyiisinjz aq

  22. moritoergosumband

    Really nice the new direction they are taking, isn't it?

  23. naman sharma

    This is really a masterpiece . God Bless Scandinavia :)

    zahrans

    +naman sharma That's nice. What about Finland, home of Swallow the Sun?

    Redbeard Metalviking

    +naman sharma Finland is not part of Scandinavia. It's Nordic though.

    Anderson Rodrigo

    Loooool we finns are not Scandinavian

    Sandra Wenger

    Scandinavian bands are awesome

  24. Ulver75

    Love it!

  25. Dante Thompson

    I should like this given how much I liked "This Cut Is Deepest", but...I don't....
    I was all over ghost of loss, then Hope came out and I was iffy, now its one of my favorite albums. I liked the progression after Plague of butterflies, but "The Emerald Forest and the Blackbird" doesn't get much rotation. The lyrics always held a punch to them post Morning never came, as if they came from a deep well of the writer, these seem like forgeries of that past passion. It is impossible to pass judgement off of two tracks, but what I've heard doesn't inspire hope. Will I buy it still? I've already pre-ordered the vinyl set so, there you go. So long as they don't pull an In Flames, I will always support this band. Let us hope these sample tracks were label picks for accessibility and not band picks to showcase their new direction.

  26. SendWitch Studios

    Majestic!!!

  27. Aliz Horváth

    hermosa :-*

  28. demonsangells

    Wasted potential, the tune is nice but I hate it when the lyrics don't rhythm.

    Rotten1117

    +demonsangells Care to elaborate please?

    demonsangells

    +Rotten1117
    I think I was pretty straight forward, it could have been much more than this.

    XxIchigoXHalibelXx

    +demonsangells Wasted potential? What the hell are you talking about? This is excellent. Lyrics don't have to rhyme to have rhythm. Plus, the lyrics DO have rhythm. I have no idea what you're talking about dude.

  29. Petriranta Hyvinkäältä

    These songs released this far... I'm almost crying when thinking of how awesome this album will be

  30. RazeTheWeak

    Not to be picky, but at what point do they play doom? Sounds like goth rock to me. Really miss the The Morning Never Came days.

    Joao RK

    It's a triple album.One disc stays true to their old style, the second is acoustic and the last one i think is funeral doom

  31. Rodrigo Barreto

    Lovely song.

  32. Jehuty X

    eargasm :)

  33. abcdefg15720

    this is not metal. this is so disapointing. We're not waiting for a cheesy balad album

    Mislav Patek

    Do you even know anything about doom/melodic metal?

    abcdefg15720

    it is ghosts of loss

    Joao RK

    Its a triple album only one of the discs is like this

  34. Seraph D.

    Nice song, but they could try not to repeat the word 'sand' like three times in the lyrics..... I'm not even suggesting that that's a really big thing....but still......

  35. Megumin

    I'm simple man. I see Swallow The Sun I click Like but nevertheless RIP metal in this album :(

    Ode For Cruelty

    +kamekaze201 You've heard a couple of tracks from a _triple_ fucking album, and you're saying "RIP metal" already. Come on, dude.

    Megumin

    +Ode For Cruelty it gives much more enjoyment when you'll find that you're wrong at it's actually more metal than ever <3 At least I hope it will be so

    Ode For Cruelty

    +kamekaze201 I assume you've heard "Abandoned by the Light" already, that one should ease your doubts. Probably the darkest and the heaviest song STS has ever made. It seems these albums are all about big contrasts.

    Megumin

    +Ode For Cruelty nobody will ever beat Swallow The sun!

    Leomas IsMe

    10 silver bullets

  36. Waleed Al-Tirhi

    I am really disappointed :( whyyyyyyyyyyyy i was waiting for this album all these 3 years i wish ill find better tracks in the whole album

    Mehdi Zengi

    +Waleed Al-Tirhi albumS....there are three of them, and they are different from each other.
    combined; they are about 3 hours worth of music so it's highly probable that you could like one album and dislike the others.

  37. Torstein Hamnvik

    pathetic drivel, get over it, loser.

  38. BRK Sorin

    i an purely subjective, but StS is starting to kick the bucket with this last song. I understand that they are trying something different but where is the gloom and beauty of the first 3 albums. This song is more proper for Trees of Eternity but you don't get what you want in life. Hope the part 3 respects the roots of StS.

    Lloyd Ellis

    This part of the triple album is pretty much acoustic, they said that right from the start.

    Jon Stallan

    +BRK Sorin This and Heartstrings Shattering are but little tastes of 3 full length albums. I'm sure there will be plenty of gloom and beauty to be found among the albums. I don't think they will let us down :)

  39. ImSin2009

    Am playing this one repeat for the last hour ... Love it <3

    Ynnej

    +ImSin2009 Same here :))

    OceanBlack

    Feels like he read my thoughts with this one... :) Love it

    Ynnej

    I know what you are saying :) 

  40. Ali Kamal

    This song hurt deeply inside of me..u guys are amazing..just i want u to keep going on wat u r doing cause u r the best for me..✖️💛

  41. Ode For Cruelty

    Winter bless your child, I'm coming home.

  42. Jon Stallan

    Very beautiful! This will be a very lovely album I'm sure.

  43. Daniel Misanthroper

    My two favourite Doom Metal bands (Draconian/StS) are releasing masterpieces... I can die happy...

    dark Prince

    +Vladimort Bathory you got that right

    Hayden Dillon-Lloyd

    my dying bride also released an album near the same time ; )

    Wings Unfurl

    New album coming early 2019

    Kyouko Sakura

    StS have an album very soon this year, and Draconian are teasing for another one too. 2019 is the new 2015.

    Wings Unfurl

    That song they released a few days ago is really good.. the album is going to be awesome

  44. Dylan Campbell

    LOVE IT!

  45. william grant

    where is the rock, metal or darkness, only pop............ beurk

  46. Muhanad An

    you guys are awesome <3

  47. Vlad

    Awesome song, guys!

  48. Sayed Ragai

    This song makes me shiver ... Master Piece !!!

  49. Shannon Bodmer

    0:42 can somebody tell me the meaning of this symbol? Or it's name?

    Shannon Bodmer

    +Cristina Martins Ohh of course, how could I not realise x'D

    Stan Ullo

    +Shannon Bodmer It's the album symbol for the "Songs from the North II" album idk if it has a special meaning.

    VacantTheory

    +Shannon Bodmer For what it's worth, the triangle stands for fire and masculinity, a circle represents the sun, and the lines dividing the outer two circles appear to form a compass thus keeping this in mind the white full circle may point towards North. But this is just speculation based on conventional knowledge about symbolism. My interpretation of this is " Fire is coming North"

    VacantTheory

    +Cristina Martins I assume you are just making a lame joke :)

    Nicklas Savanen

    +Cristina Martins Nope

  50. 6Metal6Head6

    The fuck was that shit

    6Metal6Head6

    So true I shit cobalt

    Mislav Patek

    Good for you.

    Moribundus :v

    chupala puto :v

    6Metal6Head6

    Preséntalo

  51. Jarmo Uusitalo

    Helvetti Kotamäki! Huikeaa puhasta laulua. Biisihän on lähes juuri sitä, mitä osasi kuvitella kakkoslevyltä.

  52. LS Luikart

    That explains the (perceived) long breake of Swallow the Sun! :D

  53. Васил Андонов

    Great - great song , from great - great band . \m/

  54. Tiffany

    My ships are gone , but the sea will carry me 💜

    Pietro Deledda

    +gummybear Under your skies.
    I love these verses...

  55. Nebojsa Djukanovic

    Something realy most beautifull I heard this year...emotional and ethereal melody and transcedental voices

  56. SeanSe7en

    Different tone instrumentally, same tone lyrically. Love it.

  57. TheVinylCorner

    Jumalauta Mikko on oppinu laulamaan! Mahtavuutta!

  58. SeffoRG

    those three chapters will make this winter a fucking awesome one <3 swallow the sun with a new twist n flavor

  59. Bambuzzsprosse

    Really impressive how much Mikko improved his English pronunciation. Great song, can't wait for more = )

    Bambuzzsprosse

    +dark Prince Well, it seems to Mikko it does matter, otherwise he hadn't practise to get better. Grow up...insulting someone online is the most pathetic thing a normal behaving person can do.

    dark Prince

    +Bambuzzsprosse is grammar nazi is an insult ? O.o i didnt get the memo X_X

    dark Prince

    +dark Prince ohh sorry didnt know your german deeply sorry

    Bambuzzsprosse

    +dark Prince Haha, it's not an insult because I am German :D It's an insult because you didn't call me "grammar nazi" but "fucking grammar nazi" which makes a huge difference.

    arvin ghanadzadeh

    Your comment is old
    But i have to say
    This Finnish-english accent is what makes finnish metal different from American metal
    This accent completely matches the atmosphere of song and makes it more beautiful

  60. Maurizio Carcassona

    First time I listen to this and I'm already in love with it! Totally awesome!
