When the winter was over she returned there to find him
And her memories filled her with light
She remembered the beauty, she remembered desires
And her memories filled her with light

I am the sun in the flame                                       
Cold from the flame turns away                                                 
 
And in these winds came a change...she awakes

Sister walk through these fields of delight 
I want you to know
Desperation's the tenderest trap
So gently you go
What will it take 
Sister awake

Sister, sister 

When this beautiful cult of desire
Has left you for dead
Isolation will cradle the lies
Of things left unsaid
What will it take
Sister awake

Sister, sister

And you'll look to the heaven's above
And taste it's deceit
These tempations have blinded desires
To sleep at their feet
What will it take
Sister awake

Sister, sister, sister, sister

After the 4-th time "Sister":

And you'll hear them call out your name
Invoking the fates
Chances are you've travelled too far
In stirring their hate
What will it take
Sister awake, sister awake, sister awake, awake, awake

Great tab! I love this song and could never figure it out, finally got my 12 string out and had a go and it sounds really good. Thanks!
