When the fate leaves you behind
and drags me of to an unknown destination
Shall my tears shape a sea
on which your boat has to reach the area

When the storm is most violent
and the horizon seems to be far away
You'll find strength to go on
and conquer the misery that wants to bring you down

When silence from afar is close at hand
our harmony becomes as elusive as time

Viribus exhaustus sentio meum finem
Meam amicam viduam relinquens

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song....
    i think its about just getting through difficult times in life and overcoming them through the strength of yourself.

    Does anyone know of any other bands similar to After Forever? Let me know thanks. :)

    General CommentSomebody didn't come and help the other person who was weak and sad and crying and they don't have any shame whatsoever, because they have conquered it and moved on. The people obviously are not in harmony with each other, maybe only as a facade or not even that.
