the other side lyrics – woodkid

i heard a whisper on my shoulder
pretending life is worth the fight
o can you hear the song of thunder
when fear strangles a soldier’s pride
and on the surface of the waters
will dance reflections of the fire in the night

i remember cheering from the towers
a face is smiling in the light
i remember the bells, the flowers
those days are dying in the dark

boy i was shaped for the fury
now i pay the price
of the human race’s vice
and i was promised
the glorious ending of a knight
but the crown is out of sight

i’m slowly drifting into slumber
‘cos i have lost the force to fight
it’s like a cold hand on my shoulder
i’ll see you on the other side

and in the arms of endless anger
will end the story of a soldier in the dark
