From the album What's Left Is Forever by Thomas Dybdahl

 

WINTER HAS ME BY THE THROAT
BUT SPRING IS GONNA COME SOON
I'LL BE DRENCHED TO THE BONE
IN THE WARM RAINS OF MAY AND JUNE

O LITTLE ONE

WHEN THE WAR IS DONE

THEN I'M GONNA COME RUNNING BACK TO YOU

SEE MY BREATH IN THE COLD

IN THE LIGHT OF A HALF MOON

 

I NEVER KNEW THAT WHAT I DIDN'T KNOW COULD KILL ME

I NEVER KNEW THAT WHAT I DIDN'T KNOW COULD KILL ME

 

THE HYMNS THEY SING

AND THE PRAYERS THEY PRAY

AND THE WORDS THEY SAY

AIN'T NEVER GONNA MAKE IT RIGHT

SEE ME RUN FROM THE FLAME

THE WORLD IS SCORCHED AND DRY TONIGHT

O LITTLE ONE
WHEN THE WAR IS DONE

THEN I'M GONNA COME RUNNING BACK TO YOU

WITH MY BACK TO THE SUN

FALL ASLEEP AND DFREAM TIL NOON

 

I NEVER KNEW THAT WHAT I DIDN'T KNOW COULD KILL ME

I NEVER KNEW THAT WHAT I DIDN'T KNOW COULD KILL ME
