We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Demir Demirkan’s new song “This I Swear” (listen below). The track is taken from his forthcoming album Elysium In Ashes, which is scheduled to be released on June 14, 2019 through Demir Demirkan Records. You can pre-order the album on iTunes.

Demirkan commented on the song:

‘This I Swear’ is a song about a man who had been on an altruistic path, giving all he’s got to make things work with life and people. In the end he feels that he’s been doing that to satisfy his own ego. He realizes that he had made many mistakes while trying to do good and as the saying goes he realizes that ‘the road to hell is paved by good intentions’. And then he meets this woman and she is the only one who takes a chance to love him. And, he is forever grateful. He swear that he will be true to her forever and devoted himself to her.

“This I Swear” Lyrics
Words & Music by Demir Demirkan

I tried but it was so dark
It was just too dark to see
Inside the soul
Of this stranger I call me

All the while I just kept on
I never thought that I was wrong
I was set out to fix it all
Just one soul dared to fix me

You see what regret can do
How it breaks down a man
You lifted this misery
And you set me free

Hush my whine
Pull down the veil before my eyes
Shook my ground
Falling heavy challenged me to rise

This I swear on my own grave
I will never ever give up on you
This I swear on my own blood
I’ll eternally be true to you and to myself

Mistakes, yeah I’ve done a few
And many the chances I blew
Blinded by the fooling bright
Halo of my harmless lies

Doing good for the sake of yhe good
Is a long and blissful ride
On the road to Devil’s den
Yet, every one denies

Defy my pride
Pull the rug under my feet
A call divine
Letting go has never been so sweet

This I swear on my own grave
I will never ever give up on you
This I swear on my own blood
I’ll eternally be true to you and to myself
