"Love's Tragedy Asunder" as written by Jon Schaffer and Hans Juergen Kuersch....
Here in the shadows
There's no wishing well
May the Blessed one forgive me
Like so many times before
There's no saviour at the door
It won't matter anymore

Touch me now while we reach the end,
I wonder where you are right now, right now,
Oh my dear

She still has sunshine in her weary eyes
A bed of roses to testify my love
A promise made, now I will make a try
There is no power in earth to tear us apart

Love's tragedy asunder
Oh, set your spirit free
Love's tragedy asunder
Do I believe

Deep in the shadows there's no release
(I believe) Deep in the shadows you won't find peace
(I believe) We live in a dreamworld, it's over now
I'll take your hand, our time is sure to come

On broken wings I try to fly
I'm sorry I will get it by
All praise and glory,
All praise and glory to love

I've buried sunlight when I shutter eyes
Dead leaves to dust, the seasons bloom
A glimpse of Heaven showed an angel cry
Tenfold the cries of Crack of Doom

Love's tragedy asunder
Wanted peace for me
Love's tragedy asunder
Will I be free

Love's tragedy asunder
Will I be free
Love's tragedy asunder
Falling misery
Love's tragedy asunder
Do I believe
Love's tragedy asunder
Still I believe

    My InterpretationA terminally ill wife asks her husband to kill her. He does but he feels guilty afterwards and takes his own life.

    It's written somewhere in that interview : metal-rules.com/zine/…

    General CommentThis seems to be about Roland of Gilead (Most of the Crimson King Album is about Stephen King's Dark Tower novels) and Susan Delgado, his true love.

    General CommentI don't think that this songs still refers to the Dark Tower, since there are only four songs on the album with this topic, namely: Crimson King, Terror Train, The Gunslinger and Seize The Day.
    For example, as far as I remember, Roland never did close Susan's eyes.
    To me this song is more generally about losing a beloved woman.

    General Commenti agree with flagg. the only real connection is "oh my dear" which roland says upon hearing the thinny, as it reminded him of susan. otherwise, it's too vague to be about dt, since usually the lyrics reference specific things from the novel.

    General CommentI hate when people start thinking that the whole album is about DT. Guys, THIS ALBUM IS NOT ABOUT THE DARK TOWER SERIES!

    Back to the topic, no more specific guesses? Just a love song?

    General CommentI agree that the WHOLE album isn't about the Dark Tower but I would have to agree that this song is about his beloved Susan. There is plenty more in the song then just the "oh my dear" in the begining when he asks the blessed one to forgive, him feeling at a lose of faith (Roland went throw all of this when he watched susan die through the wizards glass. )

    General CommentTo me, this song evokes various of Shakespeare's plays.

    "She still has sunshine in her weary eyes
    A bed of roses to testify my love
    A promise made, now I will make a try
    There is no power on earth to tear us apart"

    This suggests Romeo and Juliet (from Romeo's point of view just before his suicide).

    "We live in a dreamworld, it's over now
    I'll take your hand, our time is sure to come"

    A Midsummer Night's Dream?

    "Tenfold the cries on crack of doom"

    The phrase "crack of doom" was coined in Macbeth.

    But I could be wrong; I'm a computer science major, and it's a long time since I studied any of these plays.

    General CommentThe only songs on the album not about Dark Tower are Wicked Witch, Dorian and Beneath These Waves (Immigrant song aswell obviously).
