" MASTERBATE! to the sound of the knell" :devilsign:
Whispering my given name.
Unfurls the fingers of flame.
Nameless sons and daughters of sin.

The mills of God grind slowly
the fields of blood I left (...) without you now, I'm free
we've lived with our suffering. but now...?
I lifted my voice and wept out loud, "so this is life?"
I'd fallen before but it never hurt like this, don't leave me here to crowl through the mire.
show me its truth, and with joy, I will follow
yes, it is I, the fever of mankind
perhaps our fall is certain
love is a game where both players cheat
God is alone
make yourself all honey and the flies will devour you
my blood has learn what fear is

... and many more.

Nearly all MDB got a few really, really great parts 8)

"I only wanted to get you close to me
To feel the love inside of me
You turned away from me
You looked the other way
You didn't see my tears for you
I only wanted to take you in my arms,
And lay you down here with me
You tried to turn and flee from my side
You tore out the heart of me
If only you had stayed. What may have been?
We could have been beautiful
Could have walked the earth, flown into the skies,
Swam the deepest of the seas
But you couldn't see anything in me
You strayed too far from my path
Maybe now you'll see everything in me
I'm sorry it had to be this way " - The Deepest Of All Hearts

My absolute favourite, maybe a little long, but that part is just so beautiful :cry:

Some other really great (and shorter) parts are

"With lust, you're kicking mankind to death" - The Cry Of Mankind
"Awoke he did to brightest light, his woman and life had gone" - The Light At The End Of The World

....Our dying love, it prays in vain to live,
And pleads for help, I simply cannot give....from "A doomed Lover"

Notre amour mourrant, il pri en vain pour vivre,
Et demande de l'aide, que je ne peux simplement pas donner.


Translate My Dying Bride's lyrics is really a great experience. Due to the language, we do not have the same approche of the song than you. At first, we hear the sounds, the ambiance, then, we discover the lyrics and the song reborn...

Few members of the french forum and i are translating all mdb songs, and this is very interresting for us all.

You bet! I really love the lyrics on the whole TLTS album and especially these one... But what do you think of:

" All the mouths that dare not speak his name, behold them, raised, complete and fine. The battle for our lives is oh, so brief. Take my hand and please just walk with me. When I was young the sun did burn my face. I let its love
and warmth wash over me."

Really amazing :|

I actually got a lot of favourite lines so I post some of them.

"Lord make her mine or let me die" from The Blood The Wine the Roses.

"All these years
all these fears
remember them
ancient words"
from The Isis Script

"Long was the night and filled with love
for them the world was done"
from The light at the end of the world

"Be lost in me
and I never need to ask
who wants me?who wants me?
from From Darkest Skies

"I only think of you
and it drives me down
I only dream of you
from My wine is silence

And almost the whole Turn Loose The Swans" album.

From my fave MDB song:

"And at your second birth, we will slay the earth
And stalk mankind 'til Heaven burns"

"She is the dark":
Poison awaits when you kiss her
Her heart cries out for you, for me
Untold misery is hers to serve
out for eternity
Out cold. Mankind will stay
forevermore if she gets her way
She can't help it. It's her curse
To sing your pain in her own verse...

And "Roads", "Sear Me MCMXCIII", "Black God" - unreal beautifully

From The Blood, the Wine, the Roses

I tremble when she passes by.
Lord make her mine or let me die
She looked at me.
Her eyes! Her eyes!
They drew me in.
Her sin! Her lies!

Her hands on me, it's ecstasy.
It's Heavenly, it's God I see
I risk a kiss. One kiss
One kiss!
I knew from then my life had died

And from Deepest of all Hearts

I only wanted to take you in my arms,
And lay you down here with me
You tried to turn and flee from my side
You tore out the heart of me
If only you had stayed. What may have been?
We could have been beautiful

These are my favourites..

BUT DON'T FORGET!

"In fiery death, we will crawl away,
Content we,
Live for each, and every day."
Whispering my given name.
Unfurls the fingers of flame.
Nameless sons and daughters of sin.

Here's some more from the new album :

"I will kiss her mout and her dark eyes
lose myself freely in her dark eyes
...
within our arms we sleep deeply"
from L'amour Detruit

"Then heaven opened above me
and down Gods tears came"
from And I Walk With Them

"I sail on your , on youre sea of ecstasy"
from I Cannot Be Loved

"Eden Falls.Mercy for life
I hear their calls.
Stood and watch them die
heaven crawl. Beg unto
me why?
from Thy Raven Wings

"What if love's intolerable pain never leaves us
do we bash our
bleeding hearts on the rocks of loneliness"
from Love's Intolerable Pain

I stop here because all the songs have beautifull lyrics. That's also a thing why I love MDB so much the lyrics are so poetic and beautifull.

make me faint with unending kisses
my passions have all returned
warm my trembling hands
we are scope for the tragedians

the melting voice of many in the hush of night
whispering tongues can poison my honest truth
come dress me with your body

Cyanide wrote:When in the romantic corner:

Bring me love songs
Sing me black tunes
Read me kind words
Of sun and moon
Love me freely
Open up to me
Feel me closely
Say you love me

From Le Figlie Della Tempesta


That one is very beautiful for sure , but does anyone know why it isn't in the TDH booklet?

Here is a nice one :

"The sadness I present, smiles with tears "
Vast Choirs
