And meet me there, with bundles of flowers,
We'll wade through the hours of cold
Winter she'll howl at the walls,
Tearing down doors of time.

Shelter as we go...

And promise me this:
You'll wait for me only,
Scared of the lonely arms.
That surface, far below these birds.

And maybe, just maybe I'll come home

Who am I, darling to you?
Who am I,
To tell you stories of mine
Who am I?

Who am I, darling for you?
Who am I
To be your burden in time, lonely
Who am I, to you?

Who am I, darling for you?
Who am I
To be your burden

Who am I, darling to you?
Who am I?

I come alone here
I come alone here

    He is dead or dying... But he will be there deep in the ground in the grave... Waiting for her... Sad song!

    I think there is a lot of pain behind this song. It seems as if he lost someone too early. .. I wish i thought differently because i can't help but cry every time i play this song.
