The Sweetest Chill LyricsEdit


♪♫The Sweetest Chill Lyrics♫♪

Hearing you -- in my sleep Feeling you -- your cadence seeps Whispering in flashback -- the spectres of your memories Fall in glistening showers -- such a tender descent Intones this haunting lament The sweetest chill

Fearing you -- but calling your name Icy breath -- encases my skin Fingers like a fountain of needles Shiver along my spine And rain down so divine The sweetest chill

A drowning so sublime -- spins in a heavenly climb Calling you -- tears thaw my sleep Wanting you -- this hoary web is weaved From this strange confusion Grows a perverse communication It enthralls me and coils me around The sweetest chill

Enchantment ebbs and whirls -- the sweetest chill Enchantment ebbs and whirls -- oh the thrill The sweetest chill
