Lyrics for the album Burden by Opeth

1. Burden (Radio Edit)



I, once upon a time

Carried a burden inside
I sung a last goodbye
A broken rhyme I'd underlined
There's an ocean of sorrow in you

A sorrow in me

Saw a movement in their eyes
Said I no longer knew the way
Given up the ghost
A passive mind submit to fear
And the wait for redemption at hand

Waiting to fail

Failing again

If death should take me now
Count my mistakes and let me through
Whisper in my ear
You've taken more than we've received
And the ocean of sorrow is you


2. Mellotron Heart



I lost all I had (that April day)

I turned to my friends (nothing to say)
I wrote down a name (and read it twice)
I wallowed in shame

I said that I loved (eternal schemes)
I cling to my past (like childish dreams)
I promise to stay (and held my breath)
I went far away

Icy roads beneath my feet
Lead me through wastelands of deceit
Rest your head now, don't you cry
Don't ever ask the reason why

Kept inside our idle race
Ghosts of an idol's false embrace
Rest your head now, don't you cry
Don't ever ask the reason why


3. Would?



[Alice In Chains cover]


Know me broken by my master,
Teach thee on child of love hereafter,

Into the flood again,
Same old trip it was back then,
So I made a big mistake,
Try to see it once my way.

Drifting body, it's sole desertion,
Flying, not yet quite the notion.

Into the flood again,
Same old trip it was back then,
So I made a big mistake,
Try to see it once my way.

Into the flood again,
Same old trip it was back then,
So I made a big mistake,
Try to see it once my way.

Am I wrong?
Have I run too far to get home
Have I gone?
And left you here alone

Am I wrong?
Have I run too far to get home, yeah
Have I gone?
And left you here alone

If I would, could you?
