The Goth Challenge - Day 6

Day 6: Hand write your favorite lyrics and take a picture.

Fuck you! I won't hand write anything, my hand writing is ugly and unreadable. If only they were handing out p.h.ds in medicine based on handwriting...

 But I shall intrigue this question, by saying that I don't really have  particular lyrics  that I love.
I mean, I suppose I only have several lines that I would love from a song, but only very rarely the entire lyrics. The entire lyrics of a song can sometimes sound just nice to me without a special meaning. It is only rarely when I love all the words I hear and find meaning in them.

I guess my favorite lyrics would always be by Cocteau Twins, they have so much meaning, I understand even without reading it [get it? get it? :DDDD]

I know what I shall do, I will put here quotations or full lyrics with the link to the songs which lyrics I currently like best. It can be great if you could relate to them as well, tell me which ones you liked best :)
Here goes:

Kan Kan - Memories And Dreams - finding the lyrics to this song is impossible, I am writing what I heard:
" When the shadows ... cast a spell, it's a trick of the light I know so well. "
" This shadowplay belongs to yesterday."

Kan Kan - Blue Tango
"Take your partners for a tango
While we still have time to dance
Take your partners for a tango
You won't get a second chance

A puppy lying on an empty floor
The strings are broken on a blue guitar
A crazy smile strikes a familiar chord
A silent memory has its own reward

Take your partners for a tango 
While we still have time to dance

Goodbye Harlequin
This pantomime is over
(Take you partners for a tango)
This pantomime is over

A careless promise made beneath the moon
Decays with time into a hollow tune
Your laughter echoing beneath the stars
Still plays a love song on my blue guitar

Take your partners for a tango 
While we still have time to dance."

Opeth - April Ethereal
" The rain was waving goodbye, and when the night came
The forest folded its branches around me
Something passed by, and I went into a dream.
She- laughing and weeping and once. "

Opeth - Hope Leaves
In the corner beside my window
There hangs a lonely photograph
There is no reason
I'd never notice
A memory that could hold me back

There is a wound that's always bleeding
There is a road I'm always walking
And I know you'll never return to this place

Gone through days without talking
There is a comfort in silence
So used to losing all ambition
Struggling to maintain what's left

Once undone, there is only smoke
Burning in my eyes to blind
To cover up what really happened
Force the darkness unto me "

Opeth - Closure
"... In the rays of the sun I am longing for the darkness..."

Stillste Stund - Alice [Spiegeltanz] - Mirrordance
"Komm tanz mit mir in die Spiegelwelt
Komm tanz mit mir bis der Vorhang fällt
Es gibt keine Schatten in einer Welt ohne Licht
Komm tanz mit mir bis der Spiegel bricht!"
- Translation - 
Come dance with me in the mirror world,
Come dance with me until the curtain falls
There are no shadows in a world without light,
Come dance with me till the mirror breaks.

Когда раздеты до костей, мы так похожи друг на друга
Мне всё равно, кто я, кто ты, мой лучший друг или подруга
- Translation - 
When stripped to the bone, we so resemble one another
It doesn't matter who am I, who are you, my best friend or girlfriend.

Sopor Aeternus - Something Wicked This Way Comes
Perhaps this is the saddest story, full of pain and hurt
Because of all the names and phrases of this mortal world
There is only one that I hate more than any other
And this most disgusting term is the one of mother.

That would be enough for this time.
Till the next challenge,

Talk about another song which lyrics I like...

N. Finsternis


  1. Very nice. And Otto Dix, wow, I dind't know you like them. When Myspazz was a "thing," my Russian friends thought me silly to like Otto Dix.. because, "Otto Dix is the worst Darkwave band in Moscow!" :P

    1. I like a few things by him, sometimes I find the lyrics too cheesy for me, sometimes I love them. Didn't think it would surprise you that much XD

  2. It's another obscure band that not a lot of people know about. I love his voice and androgyny. Belij Pepel was the first song that won my heart on an Orkus compilation. :) They're another band that's underrated.

    1. Oh Belij Pepel is the first song I heard as well!! A good friend introduced me to Otto Dix, and funny enough, he was my first ever homosexual friend XD
