    I was in a band for many years. A little while ago it broke up cause our guitarist broke his wrist horribly. I was our singer/songwriter however not everything I write suited our music so I thought i'd share one of the lyrics that didnt quite make that cut but is still very dear to me.

    "I recall the days when we wandered the fields
    Through enthralled eyes to your beauty I’d yield
    Never able to defy the longing in my heart
    Evermore enchanted by song woven bards.

    Songs of beauty and despair
    Hymns of tragedy where created there
    Perfect tale but for the jealous gods
    Ensnared by grief, the day that all was lost.

    Here we stand at the precipice of doom
    Forever in love before for the dawn of gloom
    Unleashed when day slowly shifted into night
    The moon arose to witness my endless fight.

    I see the flesh and smell the blood.
    So innocent they stand before the flood
    One strike of paw and they fall to the ground
    One strike of claw, only carcasses to be found!

    Forever curse by the tainted gods above
    All to me is lost but for my deepest love
    Her innocent eyes would sway the beast inside
    Her final breath would force the taint to slide

    There she lay, hopeless as she died
    There I stood, hopelessly I cried.
    I curse the gods to bestow this suffering
    To lift this curse I had to forgo everything

    I recall the days when we wandered through these fields
    Through enthralled eyes to her beauty I would yield.
    Never will pure love embrace my heart
    That fateful day, when love was torn apart!"

    lol no, hellfrost was just my alter ego in the band. We also had Killfrost and Moronfrost :p We played more of a elegant black metal reminding of the really old Moonspell stuff :)
