Beseech Song Lyrics

Beseech – Drama

Beseech is a gothic metal band from Borås, Sweden. They disbanded in 2006, and re-formed with a different line-up at the end of 2013.

The light fades up in a brand new heart
First page of a manuscript
Not complete but full of life
A life that struggles on

Seems like the drama never ends
A there are still words untold
The easy parts seem so far away
So far away

My own play, my own play
The show has reached the end
The curtains closing down

Still alone on this stage
I’ve played my tragic parts
Now i’m just waiting for the end
The end that takes me away

Looks like the last page is reached
And the light is fading out
But the show must keep on going
And the show goes on

My own play, my own play
The show has reached the end
The curtains closing down

Beseech Song Lyrics

Beseech – Highwayman

Beseech is a gothic metal band from Borås, Sweden. They disbanded in 2006, and re-formed with a different line-up at the end of 2013.

[originally by Jimmy Webb]

I was a highwayman
Along the coach roads I did ride
With sword and pistol by my side
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade
The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five
But I am still alive

I was a sailor
I was born upon the tide
And with the sea I did abide
I sailed a schooner round the Horn to Mexico
I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow
And when the yards broke off they said that I got killed
But I am living still

I was a dam builder
Across the river deep and wide
Where steel and water did collide
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado
I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound
But I am still around
I’ll always be around and around and around and around and around

I fly a starship
Across the Universe divide
And when I reach the other side
I’ll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
But I will remain
And I’ll be back again, and again and again and again and again

I’m not aware of a live version from Beseech, so here’s another cover from The Highwaymen.
