The Herd - From The Underworld lyrics

Out of the land of shadows and darkness
We were returning towards the morning light
Almost in reach of places I knew
Escaping the ghosts of yesterday
You were behind me following closely
"Don't turn around now", I heard you whisper in my ear
"If you should turn now, all that you won
Will vanish just like a passing dream

Just on the very verge of the morning
Daylight was dawning, freedom was but a step away
Now with the deep dark river behind us
What could go wrong if I stayed strong in mind
What was the sudden lapse into madness
What was the urge that turned my head round to look at you?
What was the stubborn will to destroy the love and the joy I nearly held?

Three times the thunder roared in my ears
In all of my years I'll see that lost look in your eyes
As with a sigh like smoke in the wind
You slipped from my grasp into the waiting shadows
So much I longed to say, but my touch found only
The empty air and a black night's coldness - oh
Into another world you have past and never again can I reclaim you
