There is nothing anyone can do, but shut the lights out in the room and kiss Elena.

They won't take me away from you, that's nothing anyone can do because I saved her.

Sleep my darling tonight, the angels weren't right.
They came knocking on our door. I heard their voices call.
I heard them say, Elena's gone away...

I keep her so alive, not a day goes by where I don't fix her.
I can smell her perfume, burying the truth that I put behind her.

Sleep my darling tonight, I've covered you in white.
I softly touch your mouth, but inside these voices shout and they say,
Elena's gone away, Elena's gone away.

    General Commenti'm surprised there are no comments- this song is very chilling. if you've heard the story of dr. von cosel, you'll know it's about his beloved patient elena. he preserved her body after her death- "the truth that i put behind her."

    lovely song.

    General CommentI absolutely love this song. It's so haunting, but definitely one of my favorites of theirs.
