"Ritual Union" as written by Hakan Wirenstrand, Erik Oskar Bodin, Fredrik Daniel Wallin and Yukimi Eleanora Nagano....
Ritual union's got me in trouble again
I was wonderin' of a white dress
And the mistress
And a spirit holding my hand!

Love's sinking in the sand
Petals falling on demand
My feet are running like the wind
I'm sorry, boy that we sinned
Love is not like they say
A lie, that it's hard to make it stay
I drown my feelings in the sea
I dried out over on the beach

Ritual union's got me in trouble again
I was wonderin' of a white dress
And the mistress
And a spirit holding my hand!

Mother, tell me how it is
I know you've been through all of this
You ran away so many times
Your kids, your heart, a couple of dimes
Love is not like they say
A lie, that it's hard to make it stay
It drowns my feelings in the sea
I dried up over on the beach

Ritual union's got me in trouble again
I was wonderin' of a white dress
And the mistress
And a spirit holding my hand!

Ritual union's got me in trouble again
I was wonderin' of a white dress
And the mistress
And a spirit holding my hand!

    General Commentmarriage and the inevitable cycle of infidelity that is resolved only so many matter of ways,

    what cycles befall the pledged and loved, when the words leave our minds as does the love from our heart..

    the reference to her father being,

    she doesn't begrudge him but admires in herself a similar fallibility..

    thus,

    getting in trouble again..

    she has resolved to make no promises, but the ghost of the relationship her parents carried out still

    holds her hand

    where her heart is concerned -


    ps. love you yukimi :)

    Song MeaningThink it's just about how hard it is to make relationships work, marriages, or anything. Love is not as easy as it seems, we both make mistakes. We continually run into the same problems. No matter if we have kids, love, money, etc, love is not like they all say. And I think she is writing coming off making some mistakes or being hurt, and reflecting, "I drown my feelings in the sea, I dried out over on the beach" Cool song. Love the beat and the lyrics.
