I've seen you in a darkness
Your face in a dusk
Your silhouette in a shades
Eyes gliming full of lust
You try to dazzle me with your beauty
You try to bewitch me

When cold north wind blows
I can smell your perfume
When frost bites
I feel your lips on my neck

I don't want to share my life
Oh, no with you
I want your sweets and things we used to do

No, you can't reach my love
So go, or be mistress of my dreams
No, in my life there's no room for you
As you know, your flesh is what I want

I hear your lullaby, ah, that sweet melody
And I can remember those words
Which you whispered in my ear

You try to dazzle me with your beauty
You try to bewitch me

I feel your loving embrace
In my dream I see your face
Your soft skin under my fingertips
And taste of your lips

I don't want to share my life
Oh, no with you
I want your sweets and things we used to do

(The time you spend with me
Was nothing but a dream
And that's the thing you see
You were the chosen one
We made love under neversetting sun
And that's everything)
I could do with you

No, you can't reach my love
So go, or be mistress of my dreams
No, in my life there's no room for you
As you know, your flesh is what I want

(Dark desire dressed in black
You try to turn me your back
But you desire me
Like a darkness desires you
You try to forget, those times we spent together
But your desire is)
What bothers you the most

No, you can't reach my love
So go, or be mistress of my dreams
No, in my life there's no room for you
As you know, your flesh is what I want

Do it, do it end your life
But don't tease me anymore, with your cries, repent
Repent
Repent whore

    And after a small search, I will conclude that this is NOT CoB, but Cryhavoc.

    First, this song isn't (at least) originally by CoB. It's by a band called Cryhavoc, who were on a CoB single early on. (Their record label put other band's material on some singles, to get fans. This is whyy CoB ended up on a Nightwish single.)

    So this is either a cover, or not CoB.

    I think it's about this girl that this guy only liked for looks and then she wanted to get married but he didn't want to marry her for looks alone and she kills herself.

    Children of Bodom did not do this song. It was on their first EP. Spinefarm, back in the day, would put tracks by other artists on EPs and Singles to promote them. This song was written and recorded by the band Cryhavoc, who I do not beleive are around anymore. On the EP were 3 songs, the original version of Bodoms title track, Repent (Whore) by Cryhavoc, and Iron, Steel, Metal by Wizzard.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

American Town
Ed Sheeran
Ed Sheeran shares a short story of reconnecting with an old flame on “American Town.” The track is about a holiday Ed Sheeran spends with his countrywoman who resides in America. The two are back together after a long period apart, and get around to enjoying a bunch of fun activities while rekindling the flames of their romance.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
