hope

anathema'nın, hayranlarına değişim rüzgarını en ciddi şekilde hissettirdiği eternity albümünün olmazsa olmazlarından biri.
yukarıdaki sözlerden sonra (1:20 gibi) bateri ve bas şarkıya başlar, ve ardından şarkının en akılda kalıcı öğesi olan gitar riffi...
hope varlığını bu ritme ve vincent'ın ilk defa denediği, normalden daha ince tonlarda yaptığı vokale borçludur desek yanlış olmaz herhalde...
şarkının klibinde, girişteki şiir bölümü atlanmış ve ana gitar ritmiyle beraber direk sözlere girilmiştir:

when you look at me
from your own century
ı may seem to be
strange archeology
but when the winds blow
from this direction
you may sense that ı'm
ın your reflection
ı think ı feel you
but ı will never know
as the swallows leave
and the children grow

ı wanted to live forever
the same as you will too
ı wanted to live forever
and everybody knew

when ı caught you there
ın tomorrows mirror
ı thought ı felt you
jump out of my skin
throwing oil into
my blazing memories
filling empty footsteps
ı was standing in

ı wanted to live forever
the same as you will too
ı wanted to live forever
and everybody knew

as the falling rain
of the northern jungle
hanging droplets on the leaves
bombards my brain
ı hear you
across the room
a sea of daffodils spring into bloom
you are the mist
the frost across my window pane
and again

she moves her body
and her whispers weave
and the world spins
and tells me that ı'll never want to leave

as ı think of you
from this dark century
ı will always be
with generosity
that we both may share
the hope in hearing
that we're not just
spirits disappearing
