The car crunches gravel
And the wind licks at you
This dark spell you're under
Has you dumbstruck by the gate
And it hurts every muscle
Just to walk back to the house
Now this home that you both made
It looks haunted from the yard.

You can hear those distant bells
And you know they'll never leave
It's like your church is crying out
Like the wolf calls to her young.

And the dark never enters
But it also never leaves
And this spark that he gave you
Is just an ember all but out
If he'd one eye on the exit
Oh you never would have known
Until he drove off in the darkness
Like some slowly fading song.

You can hear those distant bells
And you know they'll never leave
It's like your church is crying out
Like the wolf calls to her young.

You can hear those distant bells
And you know they'll never leave
It's like your church is crying out
Like the wolf calls to her young.

disappointing on first listen...maybe it will grow on me, but I'm not holding my breath.
Now this home that you both lived
It looks haunted from the yard. . .

Ok, I'm mystified. What's the FSK roundel on the album cover mean? Does it have anything to do with the wonderful Freiwilligeselfskontroller band? (Apologies for iffy spelling. )

Regrettably, the cover's more interesting than this tune, which is Snow Patrol by numbers, as if they just poured words into a standard template, cranked a handle and got a tune out of it. I hope the rest of the CD's more interesting. 4 from the unmoved Nottingham jury.

 

The FSK is a German kind of parential guidance. FSK 0 means appropiate for every age. Then there is FSK 6, 12, 16 18, where 18 is everything containing violence, explicite speech etc.; means translated something like "voluntarily self control" by the producer. Not the best translation but you get what I want to express.
By the way, do not like that song. 3.
