Theatre Of Ice – A Cool Dark Place To Die lyrics

I've dreamed so many fruitless dreams
For love is never what it seems
It brings only sorrow with its many stings
I can only wait for death my summons to bring
Within my heart no more love can abide
For there is no one to keep near my side
I bleed from every pore from the despair that I feel
But I know of no pain that death will not heal

Truth bursts forth with radiant light
Showing me the path of right
For now the day has past and gone
And only night is coming on
No more the sun with golden beam
The earth is ruled by the moon with softer gleam
A million stars fill up the sky
All the earth is a cool dark place to die"
