"The Dance" as written by Robert Westerholt and Sharon J. Den Adel....
Someone is dancing on my grave
Sending shivers down my spine

I hear a laugh, it awoke my soul
The wind takes the leaves
Where he wants them to go
His tunes enchant our world
Our thoughts and leave us frozen

In this heart of mine, it's you I find
Take my hand
I'll take you to the promised land
You're the one

I hear a laugh, it awoke my soul
The wind takes the leaves
Where he wants them to go
His tunes enchant our world
Our thoughts and leave us frozen

In this heart of mine, it's you I find
Take my hand
I'll take you to the promised land
You're the one

Nevil, whatever you have done
These tears will fade
Nevil, wherever you have gone
Please have faith

    General CommentThis is the song that got me into Within Temptation. Although there songs are no longer quite so dark, I still love them.

    General CommentI think someone disturbed the speaker's peace. Apparently the speaker was dead and she finds a demon on her grave who wants to take her somewhere else.
