"Path To Vanir" as written by Ivar S. Peersen, Kjetil Grutle, Herbrand Larsen, Arve Isdal and Cato Baekkevold....
Awaiting my death
Gasping for air
The relief emerge
The mistress so fair

Don't abandon me
Please grant me life
I, I embrace your powers
Higher wisdom's wife

I've been fighting in vain
But they grew too strong
For my kinsmen this day
Became far too long

I, I lie in the open
Waiting to die
Were all my life's beauty
Built on a lie?

My grace you shall get
Because I welcome your return
(If) you're not the hidden
Into sadness I will turn

I've come to your rescue now
Before your last breath
My love you will receive
But it will be your death

Fear not, said the mistress
The lady of light
Those who betrayed us
Will not stand the fright

    General CommentIt seems
    That someone is fighting against all odd's
    and fates setting them free.

    General CommentGreat song, even better lyrics.
    The clean middle section seems to be the words that the "mistress of light" is speaking unto the main character as she is comforting him.
    However, he is not resurrected, she is merely telling him that she will exact vengeance upon those who have hurt him.

    "My love you will receive
    But it will be your death

    Fear not, said the mistress
    The lady of light
    Those who betrayed us
    Will not stand the fright"

    General Commentyea i agreee with Ddad.

    i love the slow part of this song:

    My grace you shall get
    Because I welcome your return
    (If) you're not the hidden
    Into sadness I will turn

    I've come to your rescue now
    Before your last breath
    My love you will receive
    But it will be your death
