​Lamenting Kiss

This song is by Virgin Black and appears on the album Sombre Romantic (2001).

A child was born in silence
And winter rose to clothe itself
With a voice of one who weeps
I curse this memory

You held the hand of hope
With glory's wreath
And deceiver's promise
The vows your lips have sworn
Tomorrow wear decay

Stifled sobs
Bow to cold laughter
The breeze is speechless
As the dust drinks the dew
A child-like hope
With fear betrothed
Never ceases to kiss my feet

This is my final lamenting kiss
I have spun my last thread
My dreams have broke
Plundered and bare
My jewels are tarnished
The wailings of the heart
Are with the unborn

Dreams of poetry
It is cold within
My knotted hand strikes
A tuneless chord
The noise of tongues
In my darkened labyrinth
Prophesies are withered
To a face careworn

Why have I forsaken you?
The dove so long imprisoned
Sour remembrance
Of a day never born
My retreating steps
Are clothed in shadows
Laden in black
A man foresworn

Heaven wept
For the wounds that bled
Tears more bitter than blood
Vex your soul
I am thrown on your mercies
Yet my heart is still hardened
Weep for me, my God, weep for me

Sooth my grief
Through my artless prayers
Your tears burden your aching soul
I held hope's hand
But let her forsake me
May I be faithful
To hold onto yours

This is my final lamenting kiss

This is my final lamenting kiss
I have spun my last thread
My dreams have broke
Plundered and bare
My jewels are tarnished
The wailings of the heart
Are with the unborn

To my god of darkness
My sombre romantic
