Volbeat – The Everlasting Lyrics

The Everlasting by Volbeat


Cast the fire!
I live inside the burning flame
Perceiving what you know as pain and it hurts
To see thy loved one disappear
Return to dust and to silence

I welcome you stranger for what you were
I’m passing you over unto this world
We’re high on the mountain, let go and see
The embers’ glow will set you free
Fly with the sirens and free the soul
It’s the everlasting leaving home
Your memory will live forevermore

Cast the fire!
I live inside the burning flame
Perceiving what you know as pain and it hurts
To see thy loved ones disappear
Return to dust and to silence

I’m passing you over unto this world
I welcome you stranger for what you were
Up high on the mountain, let go and see
The embers’ glow will set you free
Fly with the sirens and free the soul
The everlasting leaving home
Your memory will live forevermore

You wear your scars with pride and joy
What doesn’t kill you will make you strong
Sadness wins and sadness lose
You find the balance and make it yours
My life goes on, and on, and on
On and on and on
You saw the light when you were born
I step back while I truly care where you go

So you cast the fire!
I live inside the burning flame
Perceiving what you know as pain and it hurts
To see thy loved one disappear
Return to dust and to silence

We’re high on the mountain, let go and see
The embers’ glow, it’s the everlasting
Fly with the sirens, let go of me
The embers’ glow, it’s the everlasting

Woah, woah oh
It’s the everlasting
Woah, woah oh
