The Last Tale ’Of a mortal woman and a fallen man.’

'Become one with the last tale. Feel all that sorrow and pain.'

I : Memories, Sadness and Despair

With my eyes I can see clearly into the heart of emptiness
And now I feel that even there’s nothing left for me
For so long I waited for something real, for so long I just sat alone and cried
And now I’ve no will to carry on anymore, ’cause all hope has already died

All of those good memories, they’re now lost and forever gone
All of those feelings have disappeared like fog into thin air
My heart is ruined and frozen, no fire could ever break that ice
Inside it lies nothing, but sadness...
(Just take a step on the path of loneliness and demise.)

’There’s nothing left but memories, sadness and despair.’

II : End of everything

Moon is the only one shining in the darkness of this night
Hatred and fury are both burning me from inside
I’ve nothing to live for, and even though I've no reason to die..
I still want to feel the cold touch of a scythe..
I just want to disappear...
I just want to become a part of the sky.. It's so blue and clear..
Forever lost from this world...
The wheel of my life will not turn..
Ever again..
No more, I shall not rise and defend..
Farewell, 'cause this is the end.. Of everything
Was it all just part of a dream?

III : Unexpected journey

’And after that day, my physical body ceased to exist and I became a wandering spirit. But by becoming one with the astral world, I knew that I could now search for my dead wife. And for thousands of years, there I wandered and wandered.. But I just couldn't find her.. And yet without knowing the way, I just kept walking forward.. And oh, I had longed to see the daylight once more, 'cause there's no such thing as light in the dreamworld. There's only darkness.. And even something more than darkness.. One glance into the pure void that surrounds the dreamworld, well, it can make you disappear forever.'

And then one day, I encountered a powerful being who made an offer to me.. He said that: 'Do you wish to become flesh and bone for just one more day? Do you wish to see those people again that you had to leave behind?'

My answer, of course, was yes.

And without hesitating.. I accepted his offer and in a blink of an eye, I was back on earth. And so, I came back.. Wondering, doubting, searching for something. And then I found something that I wasn't even looking for. I crossed paths with a mortal woman, whose beauty was that of a goddess..
Her hair was made of gold and silver, her smile was more divine than the sun itself. And overall, she was as beautiful as a flower that is about to bloom and blossom for great summer seasons untold. And so we met and before even realizing it, I fell in love with her and so did she with me..'

’And that truly was an unexpected journey.’


IV : End of the Road

'No matter how I tried to escape from that cruel fate, I just couldn't. Always when I tried to walk away from her, my body couldn't move. I knew that I couldn't be with her, 'cause my time was running out. I had no other choice.. I had to tell her the truth.'

Spoken by the woman:

'It is unfair if you leave me now, I just met you..
But still, something deep inside my heart told me to fall in love with you.
And I don't know what to do, if I'll be left all alone again...
I am not sure will my heart be able to bear the pain of it...'

Spoken by the man:

'I..I've no choice, this wasn't meant to happen, but it did...
At least there's one thing I can promise to you: You'll never be left alone.
From now on, I shall always walk beside you, no matter how it rains or pours. And even if you're being chased by a storm or by creatures from the beyond..
I won't abandon you.. I'll keep you safe and enlighten your paths.. And I shall even smile at you when you're alone, just like the sun from high above..
And I want to let you know that I love you too, but I cannot stay here for any longer.. My place is in the sky.. In the world of lost dreams.’

'And so I departed from that world, but before doing so, I sang to her for one last time before I disappeared entirely.. She cried and cried, but I knew that this song would soothe her heart and soul.'

V : The Last Tale

There’s no words left to say.. Wind is still so calm, sky is still so grey
This tale has come to it’s end, and now it’s time to say farewell..
But my spirit, it will always follow you wherever you go
It will guide you when you’re lost, and far away from your home

There’s no words left to say.. Wind is still so calm, sky is still so grey
This tale has come to it’s end, and now it’s time to say farewell..
But my spirit, it will always follow you wherever you go
It will guide you when you’re lost, and far away from your home

This is the place, where we have to depart
This is the edge of reality
This is the place, where we have to depart
On the other side lies my path, the path of dreams and fantasy

This is the end of our tale...
The last tale...
But I won't ever forget..
That for one more day.. I had someone who to love and protect..
