Across the Sky
Emilie Autumn Lyrics


"What is your substance, whereof are you made
That millions of strange shadows on you tend?
Since every one, hath every one, one shade,
And you but one, can every shadow lend."

See beyond the moment
Think beyond the day
Hear the word
My voice will not be cast away
Fatalistic fortune
Ever near the end
Love goes on
But time does not return again

Across the sky
I will come for you
If you ask me to
Demystify
Your uncommon dreams
Stranger things have come true

Fear no more the midnight
Fear no more the sea
Close your eyes, regret nothing
You're safe with me
Look into the shadows
Step into the mist
Search your land but doubt never
I still exist

Across the sky
I will come for you
If you ask me to
Demystify
Your uncommon dreams
Stranger things have come true

Ask yourself: is this all there is?
Take no answer but the one you find
I have put my faith in aberrations of your kind
But even if you're in my mind

Across the sky
I will come to you
If you ask me to
Demystify
Your uncommon dreams
Stranger things have come true

Should we hear the silence?
Should we hear the noise?
I don't need this blind acceptance
I have made my choice
Light lives in the darkness
Beauty lives in pain
In destruction we may lose ourselves
But still I will remain

Across the sky
Across the sky
See beyond the moment
Think beyond the day
Hear the word
Hear the word

+Helen Zee Melon Thank you

@Alexandra Rain What a pretty thing to write :)

This is so different from her later creations, it was almost shocking to me. Like, if you compare this to Opheliac or I Know Where You Sleep.... It really is amazing how she can do such different things, and yet have all of it be so distinctively Emilie Autumn.

Rachel Fourie

This is one of my favorite songs by her

Vera Papp

yup, it's so awesome when someone is able to show many of their different sides.

EJ Dupris

This song gives me shivers with headphones on :o so good

Wendy Lynch

That's how I first heard it. It was such an amazing experience.

I admit, I've known about Ms. Autumn for a while now and still haven't heard all of her songs. I don't know why. She has remarkable talent in all of her work. I'm always mystified by each song I hear. Maybe I don't want to waste that first time hearing her. Because my word, listening to her is truly astounding.

I've been listening her music since 2008 <3
