"Nightfall (For Boris P.)" as written by and John T. Williams....
high under wind-swept and abandoned we stood beheaded in the snow
let them fade now behind us, melt into whiteness, here we go
and like the boy by the cathedral, the heart is heavy, made of stone
full of misgivings and surrender (???) i don't know,
no, they can't take your soul
tell me what is a soul?
no, they can't break your soul
oh, tell me what is a soul?

    General CommentI took a stab at this once. Just couldn't get that part after surrender. Here are some corrections: "wind-swept and abandoned", "we stood beheaded in the snow", "boy by the cathedral", "the heart is heavy, made of stone", "full of misgivings and surrender...???...I don't know".

    General Commenti love his music so much, one of my favorites, it's just so difficult to decipher.
