Supernatural Temptation

A song I wrote about a beatiful summer night in Smygehamn. In the middle of the night there was no wind, and the mist lay low over the fields and not so distant hill. 

Listen using the player below or watch the YouTube video

Nights like this are breathtaking, and the mist, or the elves that were dancing, got me thinking of a great Icelandic song: Álfareiðin and Supernatural Temptation was born out of the thoughts that went through my head there (enough for a small novel..)

The song is also available on Spotify in a very slightly different version

The Lyrics

Total darkness

Air is calm 

Elves are dancing

Preceding harm

Beauty so seductive

inviting me in

so hard to resist 

she wants me to sin

Suitable victim

without much resolve

promises forgotten

those time has dissolved

Not much to fight for

want a way out

the fall is close 

but there is a doubt

Wanna run away

Run far far away

Wanna run away

Is there any reason to stay

Where is she from

She is not of my kin

Is she kind

Or is she grim

Her beauty blinds me

I will loose my way

With her besides me

I'm in heaven every day

I want to stay

I really want to stay

I want to stay

Why on earth should I run away

I am scared, should I linger

Do I really have a choice

I am wrapped around her finger

Am I lost, I have no voice

Never a moment

Never at peace

I never forget it

What i have seen

I saw the elves dancing

Was that about me

I know what it means

Wanna run away… 

..I'm hunted, I cannot stay

There is a slight difference between the songs on soundcloud and the released versions.

Also, below is an earlier version that was recorded before I had access to an electric guitar.
