I WILL RUN (duet)

Based on the German poem "Der Erlkonig" by Goethe


All the shadows got so long, the days turned to night
Stareing the sunlight away, I'm starting that fight
Whispering voices in my head, "go hide your soul"
I listened to them all the time, knowing I've been a fool

I will hide no more, I will run
Fight against demons that I cannot see
Ripping my heart so that I cannot breathe
I'm pulling that trigger and holding the gun
Yea, I will run

You dear child, come follow me, I will lay you down to rest
Sleep until you feel no more, heartbeat stopping in your chest
You dear child now come with me, if you won't I'll force you to
I will force you to agree, give me your life and say adieu


I will hide no more, I will run (come with me)
Fight against demons that I cannot see (follow me)
Ripping my heart so that I cannot breathe (give me your life)

I cannot stand this any longer, they're coming too close
Getting what I love the most, please leave me alone

It soon will be over, don't struggle anymore
You cannot win this war, I will take your soul


I will hide no more, I will run
Fight against demons that I cannot see
Ripping my heart so that I cannot breathe
I'm pulling that trigger and holding the gun
Yea, I will run

    Yes! That's the strongest Syra tune yet. Excellent drums, perfect vocals, and the amazing fretwork of the Doveman! It's great to hear Syra back in action.
