Furstemberg What a great new for the music to have this band again making good pieces of poetry

Erica Anderson The wait is finally over and it was so worth it. Every track on the album is a gem but "Just Before the Storm" is the track that stands out for me. Besides being an immensely talented vocalist, Julie Plante is an equally talented musician as shown on this track. Favorite track: just before the storm.

Quality, if not quantity from this band. Only three albums and Chandelier does not pale before The Hating Tree. Autumn has matured, mellowed a bit but this album is still a benchmark in Goth Rock.

beginnings 03:08
are you ready? (cus i’m ready) c’mon let’s go! hey look ahead where there’s a cloud hanging low and it might be rain it might be snow right here, a winged creature takes flight with a keen look in her eyes don’t you want to know what she knows? oh what she knows, she knows. we are here and here is the only place i want to be we are near to the earth now there is no time to waste, don’t be long, don’t be late it's time, its time to make our mark upon the land it's our turn to take a stand there’s no time to waste, don’t be long, don’t be late let’s fly! and up ahead i see a train and i don’t know where it goes or if its fast or if it's slow i don’t care, c’mon let’s ride! long and deep into the night as the clouds spill out over our heads all i really needed to know is that wherever you are, i will lay my head now, now we have a chance to make our place our time to breathe our space not going to be a better time it's time to let our sight carve through the storm it's our time to be reborn and it's ok, if a new wall should build itself right in front of me well then it's just our time to let it be

it was to be the strangest night i’d ever know it was the night i’d bear the maiden’s child and break the spell this maiden spoke to me she kissed my eyes, she let me breathe and as her veils fell to the sea she picked me up and carried me to a place where lovers bleed the blood of love, so tender sweet now looking back to where i had lain i knew then i’d never rise again but she broke the spell she broke the line it would have kept me from my truth until the end of time though i’ve played amongst the fallen leaves taken in the splendor of the seas and mother moon, she still amuses me in her i have found my eternity eternity it was to be the strangest night i’d ever know it was the night i’d bear the maiden’s child and break the spell and break the line that would have kept me from my truth until the end of time she broke the spell she broke the line it would have kept me from my truth until the end of time.

the fall 04:28
where i had my feet to close to the edge i broke down so i go on from day to day to day and no one knows how i pay and pay and pay bright lights have never been a friend to me i have seen the light and it was not who i needed it to be bold lights and cold color trailing behind me like a nagging mother even you cannot help me now this time i’m going down i break down and i say ”la, la,la” as i’m falling down break down with just a flick of the wrist and just a one-fingered push i am careening down that was all it took this world has never been a friend to me i have seen the light and it was not what i needed it to be bold light and bold color trailing behind me like an angry lover even you cannot help me now this time I’m growing thin i break in so i might as well twist and ease back into the spin and i let it go, and this time i’ll go slow and with my arms out free i only needed you to be here with me oh i want to be free i want to know what’s inside of me i want to know who i am meant to be before i die i want to be free i want to know what’s inside of me i want to know who i am meant to be before i die i’ve got to try go to the left and the right in the heat of the night i’ve lost everything and it was all a fight this world has never been a friend to me i have seen the light, it was not where i needed it to be bold light and bold color trailing behind me like an angry mother even you cannot help me now this time i’m in cold light and bold color cold light and bold color cold light touch ground.

soulsong 03:51
at last i can see the difference in the air tonight at last i can see the difference in the air tonight and now we will be hand in hand tonight no more pain, no more wasted light no more wasted light i know that there has never been a day there has never been a more precious day so when my earth mother calls me home you will not be alone they can throw my ashes to the wind and i will just come right back again i am the sun and rain and day and night and i will never give up this flight you are my soul soaring free, in hope and love, we’ll be now, i will carry you inside of me wrapping you in eternity (you are the one i have dreamed about) you’re my eternity (you are the one that i love) at last, i can see the difference in the air tonight at last, i can tell there will be no more lonely nights and when my earth mother calls me home you will not be alone they can throw my ashes to the wind i will just come right back again in sun and rain and day and night no, i will never give up this flight (now that i have you i know that my soul is free) you are my soul soaring free, in hope and love, we’ll be this is my soul song (you are the one that i dreamed about) i am so glad to have found you after so long (you are the one that i love) we’re free at last

hush now my darling and don’t fear, no one is watching for though vows have been taken right now, my faith is shaken i don’t want to be shaken and if this love should destroy me then let me make up my own death bed and will you cover me with your holy kisses and let me die here with no more wishes to take you completely whole and within me (i’ve got to have you inside) just a moment of stillness (won’t you please hold me still) that we may feel our oneness i want to be one and if this love should destroy me then let me make up my own death bed and will you cover me with your holy kisses and let me die here with no more i will never be whole again i will never go home again i will never know home again it’s just my sweet misfortune it’s just the pain of loving you, it’s just the pain of a wasted truth, it’s just the pain of loving you now our summer is fading in my heart, i’ll still be waiting (and won’t you please wait for me?) because a secret was spoken now i fear i will always be broken i don’t want to be broken and if this love should destroy me then let me make up my own death bed and you will cover me with your holy kisses and let me die you can let me die after you’ve covered me with your holy kisses you can let me die here with no more wishes

diving in, legs glide through the water clenched hands pull sand to my hips though i am trying so hard to forget you still i ache for your kiss then another breeze on my shoulder raises the hair on my skin (and my heart breaks) though i have thrown love to the ocean still i fear the waves will roll it back in from under the waves (where my heart breaks) under the waves where i’m waiting, as the crest of a wave beats my skin i’ll keep holding on and i’ll wait to dive in so here i go again now seeking refuge, i rush to the shallows then lay back with my face in my hands now i’m dreaming of shade in the forest just a safe place to bury the shame (and my heart breaks) though i’ve thrown love to the ocean still i fear those waves gonna roll it back in oh, from under the waves where my heart breaks under the waves where i’ve waited as the crest of a wave beats my skin i’ll keep holding on and i wait to dive in from under the waves i’ll wait for you

damage 04:42
we’d swear we’d always be best friends we’d keep our faith until the very, very end and it wouldn’t matter what they’d say you’d take my hand and we’d just simply walk away but now my dream’s come undone crashing around me, here comes another one and all that remains of a life is the flame what does it matter who is to blame? though i saw it all come down i never knew i’d be the one now I wear the mark of blame and i’m just standing here in the sun its too late for sorry, we’ve turned the damage on its too late for ‘forgive me,” its time to get the damage done and now it does not matter what we do we can talk, we can talk, but i know my heart is through it does not matter what they’d say i know i can’t live like this for one more day and now i cower alone i can’t heal your pain, i cannot bear my own and all that remains of this life is the flame what does it matter we are to blame? though i saw it all come down i never knew i’d be the one now i wear the mark of blame and i’m just burning here in the sun its too late for sorrys, my god what have we done its too late so forgive me, but time to get this damage done! i must find a way and a place to hold on to you i must find a way to save what we had that i know is still true at the end of the day you know that i still love you i still love you but we’ve got to get the damage done we got the damage on and on and on and i watched it all come down i never knew i’d be the one that i’d wear the mark of blame and i/m just burning here in the sun i must find a way and a place to hold on to you i must find a way to save what we had that i know is still true and at the end of the day please know that i still love you at the end of this day please know that i still love you.

long time past, the summer sun leaves so thin and now they’re turning grey and i think to myself i feel the clouds growing dark and i‘ve got something i have to say wind picks up and it takes my words away working side by side in silence now we seal our fate as we tear the garden down and my eyes to the sky and i feel the enormity of this weight (fear grips me hard in its embrace) my eyes closed, and i’m right back to that december day we caught a snowflake swirling and you gave me your heart and a promise our hearts could not obey time is spinning out now broken pots still need a place to stay a new panic settles in i can still see the child she is buried under this decay (pain takes me down in its embrace) my eyes closed and i’m right back to that december day we caught a snowflake swirling and you gave me your heart and a promise our hearts could not obey we could not obey, not today take one last look around

i have fallen so far today, given in and been swept away do you see me there? all my progress comes undone with the swing of the pendulum but my fears remain these fears remain and what of my heart? what of my energy, my time, my possibility and i know, i must believe! for though the time has come, i cannot wait to see nor can i let time dissolve what’s left of me picked myself up off the floor, in a cage still i implore can i try again? if i can find my way back home, will i find myself alone? will i have the chance? just half a chance? and what of my heart? what of my energy, my time, my possibility and i know, i must believe! for though that the time has come, i cannot wait to see. nor can i let time dissolve what’s left of me if it takes forever i will leave me never.

away 04:18
where has my heart gone? it suddenly slipped away it left this place so hollow it's hard for me too it's getting hard for me to stay and if you would let me if you would let me love you if i could feel your breathing here and now, just like i used to and if just once more i could be the star that you looked up to maybe someday, maybe some other day where has my hope gone? how could you leave me in this place? forever sweeping the halls in search of a fragment of you or just a fragment of your lovely face if you would let me if you would let me love you if i could feel your breathing here and now, just like i used to and if just once more i could be the star that you looked up to maybe someday, maybe some other day where, where has my heart gone? don’t you leave, don’t you leave don’t you leave me this way

white light 04:57
here i come to lay before your form and bear my breast, an open door to you here i come to lay before your throne and bear my heart, an open door to you and you smile, you say ‘stay for a while,’ and so i do but there’s a problem of which i know and i don’t know if it shows, if it shows through you called me your angel what do you know about angels, and what they do? do you know, what do you know of angels’ screams? that things may not be as they seem! do you know, what do you know of angels’ dreams? and that i may not be clean! and if you know, it doesn’t show oh no? then here i come…. beneath your chin just to the left, your softest skin i bite my lips to feel the way you’d taste take me now right here upon the floor where i could properly adore the space we’re in and you smile, you say ‘stay for a while,’ and so i do but what if just a sliver can break away and make me shiver, make me stray away from you you called me an angel what do you know about angels, and what they do? what do you know, what do you know of angels’ dreams and that i may not be clean do you know of angels’ screams? that things may not be as they seem and if you know, it doesn’t show….. oh no then,here i come.

i lace my boots up, i;m out the door and walk into a day that’s filled with absurdity though i’ve scraped myself up off the floor now there’s no escaping what’s become of me i never believed it was the end no, it would just go on and on and on and on this way now i’ve no need to pretend this time is running out for me to find another way i took the sun and moon from the sky but oh, i want to give them back now! i’ve drowned all my bridges drained all the ditches want healing and i don’t know how! i’m stripped of my choices, filled with revulsion and i’m still trying to make it ok and it goes on and on and on and on……..this way deep in my heart deep in my heart this truth can’t bring me down , cus deep in my heart i have known from the start that sooner or later it all comes apart no this truth can’t bring me down cus deep in my heart i have known from the start that sooner or later it all comes apart this truth can’t break me down cus deep in my heart I have known from the start sooner or later it all comes apart this truth can’t break me now deep in my heart i have known from the start that sooner or later, this whole world comes apart.
13.
when the daylight brings raging fire and the night, a rushing fall when the sun and moon have all but vanished and the stillness comes to call it will make no difference where you’ve been nor will it matter where you’ll go let me cover you now feel my breathing and in this space let it go right here, right now i’ll stay right here and now if the shadows can swell in silence if just a whisper claws a hole don’t be afraid if you’ve debts to pay and do not worry whom you owe i said, i will cover you you’ll feel my breathing and in this space let it fall right here, right now and when the ghosts are howling the forest trees are falling i’m gonna find a seed and i will keep it near and you won’t have to call me just put your arms around me i’m gonna keep this seedling cus it’s a vow worth keeping this is a vow worth keeping

chandelier 04:29
listen now like boxes stacked up in the halls i’ve got to find a place to store you now before it gets so tight here i cannot pass through at all. i thought i’d keep my fever out of sight but all along i know i been swimming in wrong i tell you, boy, its going to end right here, this night this ripple started deep so long ago miles and miles from any shore and i did not have the strength to reach for more until the light poured out of me and with all the love i had to show i could not find a way to let you go no more to stand right here, not in indecision now i believe our future’s crystal clear we’ll shine for all the world, a living chandelier and we won’t break, won’t dissipate we are here to stay and we’ve more time, no this time we won’t be blind of this golden fate and i want to thank you for believing in what we can be and i want to thank you for releasing all that’s inside of me and i want to… (it’ll play like a special show just made for us, and us alone) this ripple started deep so long ago and now my fear just disappears we are for all the world a chandelier tonight and i want to thank you i really want to thank you now.
