Lyrics in English except for title hook 'Dulce Dolor' - Spanish for "sweet pain"
From opening note of haunting Armenian woodwind duduk to memorable chorus melody, this lush mid tempo song of long distance yearning enchants.
it's a song of longing that came when i discovered that rather than wishing the ache of missing the person would cease, if i savoured and embraced the emptiness, it actually can bring the person closer in my heart


Dulce Dolor
I surrender to this longing
Because it brings you to me
It brings you to me

Nothing will ever be broken
Nothing will ever be the same
Words are not easily spoken
Time is not easily taken

Dulce Dolor
I welcome this hunger
Because it brings you to me
It brings to me

repeat CHORUS
