It's cold, snowing
Blue light, dusk settles...

A fire burns with failing light
Against the growing darkness

Bending over the dying flames
You were with me then and always

Through the fluttering veil of frozen blue,
A hooded figure cuts its path
To cleave the night in two.
Pull its outer husk from its body and the rest escapes,

And there upon the ground the remnants of our struggle.

This is the ghost key
This is our ghost key
This is our ghost key

    General CommentIt's cold, snowing,
    blue light, dusk settles.
    A fire burns with failing light
    against the growing darkness.

    Bending over the dying flames,
    you were with me then as always.

    Through the fluttering veil of frozen blue,
    a hooded figure cuts its path
    to cleave the night in two.

    Pull its outer husk from its body
    and the rest escapes,
    and there upon the ground...
    the remnants of our struggle.

    This is the ghost key.

    Lyric CorrectionMeant to say that as a lyrics correction...

    It's cold, snowing,
    blue light, dusk settles.
    A fire burns with failing light
    against the growing darkness.

    Bending over the dying flames,
    you were with me then as always.

    Through the fluttering veil of frozen blue,
    a hooded figure cuts its path
    to cleave the night in two.

    Pull its outer husk from its body
    and the rest escapes,
    and there upon the ground...
    the remnants of our struggle.

    This is the ghost key.

    General Comment"A fire
    Burns wide
    Valley lies against
    The growing
    Darkness" wrong

    it's:
    A fire burns with failing light against the growing darkness.

    Song MeaningI believe Octivarium64 posted the correct lyrics.

    That said, does anybody have any input on meaning of this amazing song? I get "love song" out of this, but it could be about anything. I have to do a bit more research on the albums theme. I am surprised that there are so few posts for this beautiful work of art.

    Song MeaningAfter reading the corrected lyrics I believe its about to people, freezing to death.

    It's cold, snowing,
    blue light, dusk settles.
    A fire burns with failing light
    against the growing darkness.

    (This pretty much sets the tone of where they're at.)

    Bending over the dying flames
    you were with me then as always.

    (They're struggling to keep the fire alive, literally, to keep warm but that person is there with him and she always is)

    Through the fluttering veil of frozen blue
    A (hooded) figure cuts its path to cleave the night in two.
    Pull its outer husk from its body and the rest escapes.

    (When I hear this part, I just imagine death walking up to these frozen bodies)

    and there upon the ground...
    the remnants of our struggle.

    this is the ghost key
    this is our ghost key

    (This part I always imagine just ash of a failed fire.)



    This song is really dope cause it can be taken as so many way.
    To me this song is straight forward and is exactly the way a love song should be written.
