lyrics

THE MIDDLE AGES

I find myself at the graveyard of my mind,
A ghastly ghoul amidst the stone walls of memorials...

There was a battle between me and my love.
Two households separated by the Will of God.
Oh, Lord! Go easy on me now...

Oh, Lord! Oh, my Lord!
Why do I feel like time is aging me swiftly?
Why if my years pass by, I still miss her dearly?

Time, come heal me!
Fire, free me!
Wind, release me!
Earth, conceal me!

Don't want to die
Cripple, bent and old.
Taken by famine,
Like many men did in the Middle Ages.

If Love's a stage,
Then ours is a battlefield
Where conciliation
Wasn't even tried!

Oh, Lord, who came victorious?

Oh, Lord! Oh, my Lord!
Why do I feel like time is aging me swiftly?
Why if my years pass by, I still miss her dearly?

Time, come heal me!
Fire, free me!
Wind, release me!
Earth, conceal me!
