    Parting came relieving

    Hello,

    Does the following line make sense for you?

    One autumn
    Parting came relieving
    She ran up behind me
    Poorly hid her grieving
    +

    Regards,

    Please give the source and author of that quote.

    I couldn't resist Googling it. But let's see what Flogger says.
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    I have already mentioned the source of the quote in my first post. Please see + under the quote.

    How were we supposed to know that + was a link to a source?

    + is a famous signal for referring to sources. I wonder you don't know it.

    I've never seen it on this forum. Users here shouldn't have to click on a link to find out such information. Please simply give the author and the title in brackets after the quote in future. Thanks.

    The lyrics to Heavy Metal songs do not make a lot of sense to me.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/T%C3%BDr_%28band%29
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    It's not famous where I live. I thought it was a plus above a minus, which in math means "approximately." I didn't know what it was doing there. Thanks for explaining!

    You're right. The written words don't make sense, and the audio is hard to make out. Keep in mind:

    - Transcriptions of lyrics often have mistakes. (The people who transcribe them from audio often have trouble understanding the words, too.)

    - Most lyrics sites get lyrics from each other - not from the artists, because that would cost money. So the same mistake often appears in many or most sites.

    - Sometimes songwriters are more interested in the sound or feeling of words and less interested in their meaning.

    - Sometimes people writing in a foreign language (like TYR's writer writing in English) make mistakes.

    Maybe someone else here understands it. If not, you could contact TYR directly. I'm sure the band's website has contact information.
