"Turkish Delight" as written by Lars Horntveth and Susanne Sundfor....
Angels are lost in the sooted fog
Of a million fallen dots on a disc of mud
All the closets forgotten
All the lakes are frozen

Well if eternal winter, if eternal snow
I'll have a Turkish delight
I've got the freeze, they offer me holy wine
It gets me through the night

The moon lingers on and shines down
Upon the shroud that covers both the living and the dead
Of a forgotten empire
You better kneel, you better kneel down
Before the lady, the shadows of sun

And if eternal winter, if eternal snow
I'll have a Turkish delight
I've got the freeze, they offer me holy wine
It gets me through the night

Everybody's hungry for more and more and more and
Even though they know that Maugrim's at the door and
Everybody thought they could make it on their own but
I have seen them turn into stone

Everybody thought they could make it on their own but
I saw them turn into stone

    General CommentSupposedly this song is about the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Her voice is so haunting and brilliant I couldn't help but buy the whole album after listening to this.

    General CommentYeah its about The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe which is a suitably haunting book in its own right but its also an amazing metaphor for our modern world and the way she sings it brings all that home so perfectly; the false God of the White Queen, the bribery of turkish delights and holy wine, I especially "like the ending everyone thinks they can make it on their own but Ive seen them all turn to stone". I was wondering if the album is any good and whether in particular this song sounds as perfect as it does live?
