As I lay dying
at the eve of my days
There is a void inside me
hollowed by the years

Time has made these scars
burned them in my soul
Moulded this ugly figure
of anguish and woe

Only death by my side
in the darkness waiting
I weep for what I've done
cry for what I've not

I beg for salvation
that cannot be found
Never in this life
not with these memories

I have never shown regret
or askd for forgiveness
I have never relented, no
or yielded to prayers

Only vision in my mind
as I give my life
How she hides her face
and turnes away

    General CommentI guess this song is about a old man about to die, thinking back upon his life, of what he have done and not done.

    When he dies he think about the one he love, who left him.
