Under A Veil Of Black Lace Lyrics

Under A Veil Of Black Lace Lyrics by Anathema :
[Intro]
With loving passion, oh your radiance
A serenade I cry
Your silk lined coffin the lachrymatory
To hold a mourner’s tears

[Chorus]
Ethereal splendor
Pale skin and down cast eyes
Scent of paradise
Like her, forever remains unknown

[Verse 1]
Through tear stained eyes
My view is growing weaker
Please help my grief be vanquished
Thy bed of roses, funereal drapery
Impale my on your thorns

[Verse 2]
Celestial splendor
Pale skin and down cast eyes
Farewell autumn kisses
Like her, forever remains unknown
I loved her… but now she’s gone
(It’s so hard to face)
Overcoming… tender reckoning

[Outro]
If I too depart this earth
I harmony to (our) heaven we’ll elope
Heavenly grace with which to ease
The virgin’s tears
