Lyrics

WHERE LUCIFER LINGERS written by Ron Lindsay

I'm here at this place of memories past
A place where the hands of time have turned so fast
Still black is the night and dim is the day
for those left behind with trouble of mind are hidden away

This a place where Lucifer lingers
Where many have gone and still so many remain
Though I'm no longer here I am bound by history's fear
And my heart is heavy and sad from memories past

Shaped by the hands of fathers before
They coloured the landscape of life that my mother bore

I'm here at this place where Lucifer lingers
A place where the soul takes flight and sun doesn't shine
So for those who must remain in the house of Lucifer's pain
Their hearts so heavy and sad from memories past
And still to remain forsaken and bound to memories past
