Whispered words beneath the floating autumn leaves

Flying softly on the southern breeze

Fragments of light between the branches and trees

I wish I would stay here forever

The sun is sinking behind mountains of old

Brushing faintly clouds of red and gold

Night-time’s flinging a vast veil of velvet across fields and forest

Trespassing the havens of daylight’s temporary borders.

I knew my game could gain me but grief, the fairy tale was on though brief

Trespassing the havens of secrecy’s temporary borders.

Scratching the surface of times seemingly forgotten

Of you who once were mine betrothen

Digging ‘neath layers of emotions now rotten

I feel myself slip away

Nostalgic entertainment tingled by the past

You were the one to be mine at last

But now my memory’s ever fading so fast

Keeping emotions at bay

Here I sit, and memories unfold

My feelings are hollow, I’m feeling so old


“I feel it fade away and cry tears in solitude”

Trespassing the havens of night-time’s temporary borders

As shadows collapse in the mating of day and night, crows are circling in

Ominous flight

Trespassing the havens of my own temporary borders (temporary borders)


I tried… I tried hard to believe

Thinking of us has left me but grief

I cannot look ahead, the past is all I see

Moments together, but time’s a thief

Shadows recurring from times long since passed

Our time and now in a perfect contrast


“As I see you sitting by my grave

I feel your presence, but can’t say a word

Your heart and love, patient and brave

But my soul is too late for you to save”

I am probably a fool still thinking of you

Night after night…

There’s not much else I can do

For neither myself nor you

Maybe I should leave and never come back to this place…

But I know too surely that I’m only fooling myself

I’m only fooling myself

[Temporary borders – Comments]

[I had just joined illnath, got their lyrics and listened through all the music which was going to be on the cd. I was like a kid in a candy-store, and got to work that very evening at Tobias place with a lyric piece (which Tobias also participated strongly on). The lyrics I had received had some qualities, but mainly, I thought, I could do them better. The guys had already read some of my lyrics and pointed out ‘Frozen constellations’, ‘Bring down the witching hour’ and ‘By the hands of violent winter’ as the only songs they did not want to change.]

[I guess the idea of a gothic romance in a moody black metal song is not very original. I assume I wanted to make a presentation of our own gothic romance song, and at the same time I enjoy writing these kind of lyrics, even though, as mentioned, they do not give much to the black metal scene today.]

[Partly based on the coming summer (it was written sometime in may, I think), partly based on my poor lovelife and strange feeling of suddenly being in another country doing music with people I didn’t know a week ago. I alone, yet somehow welcome and at calm here. Just like the narrator in the song. It was also a good possibility to use Lena’s vocals.]
