Anathema – Temporary Peace lyrics

Deep inside the silence, staring out upon the sea,
The waves are washing over half forgotten memories,
And deep within the moment, laughter floats upon the breeze,
Rising and falling, dying down within me,

And I swear I never knew, I never knew
How it could be,
And all this time all I had inside
Was what I couldn't see,
And I swear I never knew I never knew
How it could be,
And all the waves are washing over
All that hurts inside of me,

Beyond this beautiful horizon
Lies a dream for you and I,
This tranquil scene is still unbroken by the rumours in the sky,
But there's a storm closing in,
Voices crying on the wind,
This serenade is growing cold it breaks my soul that tries to sing,
But there's so many, many thoughts,
When I try to go asleep,
But with you I start to feel a sort of temporary peace,

As I drift in and out,
Drift in and out,
Drift in and out...
