Opeth

Will O The Wisp

Verse 1

When you're tired of waiting
And time is not on your side
When you're tired of hating me
You no longer want to hide
 
You're stuck to the failures of your life
Marred with the sorrows of your strife

Chorus

And time it waits for no one
It heals them when you die
And soon you are forgotten
A whisper within a sigh

Verse 2

When there's trouble admitting
That you have been wrong all along
When the words you have written down
Reads "everything is gone"
 
You're stuck to the failures of your life
Marred with the sorrows of your strife

Chorus

And time it waits for no one
It heals them when you die
And soon you are forgotten
A whisper within a sigh
 
^[And time it waits for no one]
^[It heals them when you die]
^[And soon you are forgotten]
^[A whisper within a sigh]
 
[Hmmmm]

Verse 3

When you smother your friendships
And take much more than you need
When you can't keep a secret to yourself
And points to the source of the deed
 
You're stuck to the failures of your life
Marred with the sorrows of your strife

Outro

And you can
Never find the satisfaction
When you can't outgrow your false distractions
 
You know
Your soul is weighed on the silver scale
Of deceit and lies
