empress of this glorious feeling
your palace above me
i journey to give me
until you found power
i thought we were always us
us forever this fire forever.
i journey through forest and concrete
i never stop never sleep without you far
sweet fire coming through
i didn't feel you slip away into the night
to hunt the crown and the glory
put i saw it all
how could i have let you slip right from these arms that hunt for you?
how could i have let you slip right from me into that dark lagoon?
my empress my empress
i'm coming down for you

    General Commenti have to agree. this song is quite magical.

    General CommentMy theory is that this song is about the woman who is "basically my soulmate", Bishi.

    They've known each other since about the age of 11, but had a terrible falling out within the last few years.

    General Commentthis song + the way patrick sings it could actually turn me gay, im getting quite worried about myself lol

    but onto the meaning yeh imber your most probably right, no deeper meaning, just basically about a really close friend and a fall out over something
