Pain of Salvation: Sisters

This has nothing to do with TV but this song is so haunted and heartbreaking I felt I had to share it.

When all are dizzy and happy from too much wine
I leave the party behind
To walk alone with my thoughts and this spinning mind
Through this cold night
But there she stands…

And she walks like you
And she smiles almost like you
A child of the wild just like you
Yes.

For a second I think I get a glimpse
Of the real her, behind
She’s warm and fragile
With smiles that reach to her eyes
But just this moment,
A change so sublime

If she looked me deep into my eyes
And softly asked me to
I’d be in her bed and in her flesh
And waste a life I knew

So I hold my breath and close my eyes
And focus on the wine
Let this trembling moment pass us by
So I could say goodnight

But then, an impulse
I almost touched her face
Before I pulled back my hand
And we get nervous
We laugh and she spills her wine
Both so awkward, for what’s on our mind

And she talks like you
And she smells almost like you
A child of the wild just like you
But she’s not all you
Even strives not to be you
Just like every sister would do

And perhaps it’s the want
Of you in her eyes
But I want her this one single time
Just this one time

If she looked me deep into my eyes
And softly asked me to
I’d be in her bed and in her flesh
And waste a life I knew

So I hold my breath and close my eyes
And focus on the wine
Let this trembling moment pass us by
So I could say goodnight

If I’d looked into her eyes
And softly asked her to
She would give herself and give her flesh
And waste a life she knew

So we hold our breath, and close our eyes
And take a sip of wine
But this thirst has emptied every glass
And we should say goodnight

God, help me say goodnight.

I still have yet to see the moment when Daniel Gildenlow writes a mediocre song 😛 And I love Fredrik’s piano ♥

    In fact, the piano was also recorded by Daniel 😉

    • Yep I know but as the album was still unreleased when I posted this I had no way of knowing that ^^

      It breaks my heart this haunting melody ❤
