I feel the rain brush past my knees
as i kneel by your body, as i kneel by your dead body

your stare pierces me from beneath the leaves
i look up to the sky and i'll wait with you forever
and i'll wait until the sky burns away for you to wake
the sun hides behind the hills

what we love will destroy us
your skin looks so pale
the moonlight christens your body
i'm too young to die but i'd die for you tonight
because there's feelings left, there's always more.

    General CommentThe lyrics to this are amazing imo. It's not really a thing you can relate to, but it's so brilliantly done - like late victorian gothic poetry, and obviously the name is refrencing 'Porpyria's Lover' By Robert Browning. I'm not sure if it's trying to metaphor to anything but its most plain outline is that it's someone's total despair in someone they love dying, and how they would do and try to do anything to take that person back, but obviously they can't. Very different from the original poem Porpyria's Lover though, that's someone killing someone that they love so they can never leave them..
