Cold Wild Sea

from by Forthcoming Fire



Another classic, that the band performed during most of their live shows. This version never appeared on another CD album or vinyl before.


Standing on the shores of a cold wild sea
And I wonder why
While a threatening wind had me in it’s spell
Makes me wanna cry
Staring through the distance at a cold wild sea
Nothing left to say
And a flock of seagulls is calling me
Clouds passing by
And the rain tears down onto the ground
And i feel so blue
And the storm opens a violent sound
And I miss you

I walk through the water

And a threatening wind starts to talk to me
I take off my shoes
And I close my eyes so I can see
I got nothing to lose
And I close my mind so I can see
I can watch behind
I can travel beyond the eternity
While my eyes are blind

The storm bangs onto a secret door
So I enter the gate
Draws me a picture of conquest and war
And I wish I would fade

Wooden longships passing by
Masts so tall
Out of the dark they are rising high
I hear someone call
And the cold wind sings a forgotten song
Through the mightful rain
From an alien race and ships so strong
And a world in pain
Your winds are telling of what will be
Tales of threatening, misery

North wind blows across the country
Let your spirits grow
Whip your waves against the Towers
Let the waters flow
