Track Name: Calling Out, Wide Awake
In the night I will be there
Come alive and walk right through the air
In the black I hear you whispering
Like an ocean of stirring violins

All the lights fill the air
Calling out, wide awake
You know that I remember well

In the night
I lost my wings again
All the words painted on my skin
When the lightning broke out on the water
I saw the angels pounding on a drum

All the lights fill the air
Calling out, wide awake
You know that I remember well

Golden fire
Burning bright
Oceans rise
Over the edge
Into the air

Come back to my heart
Look up to the stars

In the valley breathing down below
Come the rain, weeping on the snow
In a dream I lost my wings again
And the wounded angel choir sings

All the lights fill the air
Calling out, wide awake
You know that I remember well
Track Name: Sweet Summer Rain
Morning lights a fire
The world is lying still
The sun outside is golden
Why are we, why are we, so cold?

Falling nights of ardor
The moon is rising full
The soul inside is burning
Why are we, why are we, so cold?

Sweet summer rain, we have waited so long
Holding the sky in the palm of your hand
Raising these words from the back of my tongue
Out of the silence, a thundering storm

Morning lights a fire
The world is lying still
The sun outside is golden
Why are we, why are we, so cold?

Falling nights of ardor
The moon is rising full
The soul inside is burning
Why are we, why are we, so cold?

Sweet summer rain, we have waited so long
Holding the sky in the palm of your hand
Raising these words from the back of my tongue
Out of the silence, a thundering storm

Why are we, why are we, so cold?
Track Name: Winter is Coming
You know me so well
Let me into your heart
With fire in our blood
We fall into the dark
If love has its chains
I don't want freedom again

Cold nights
Far from home
Warm hearts
Flesh and bone

Winter is coming
Oh, where we lie
I know when I see that
Look in your eye

You know me so well
Let me into your heart
With fire in our blood
We fall into the dark
If love has its chains
I don't want freedom again

Wings wide
Open skies
Stars born
A million miles from here
Our words have no soul

You know me so well
Let me into your heart
With fire in our blood
We fall into the dark
If love has its chains
I don't want freedom again
Track Name: Mirrors and Bones
On your own
Wearing black
Walking slow across the bridge

When you breath
You’re blowing steam
Like a white wolf in the morning light

I try to feel the rhythms in your soul
No time to read the mirrors and the bones

I saw the lights of the fire you held
I heard the voice of the nightingale

I saw you kneel
By a wounded white bird
Your heart was open wide

The way it feels
I can still hear your words
Are you wild and free?

I try to find the narrow winding road
I crawl between the shadows and the stones

I saw the lights of the fire you held
I heard the voice of the nightingale

On your own
Wearing black
Walking slow across the bridge
Track Name: Out Beyond
You go out
Out beyond
Beyond this little world we’re sailing on
You go out
Out alone
Into that mystery where we are thrown

I see the moon become a tear beside the evening star
I see the boats go by and wonder where you really are
I see the tail lights disappear into the dark
I see the fire on the border between death and life

You go out
Out beyond
Beyond this little world we’re sailing on
You go out
Out alone
Into that mystery where we are thrown

Now a seed is blown, carried on the wind at dawn
Feel the warmth of love lead the way through this storm
I see the rain coming underneath this heavy sky
I feel your breathing now dissolve into a world inside

You go out
Out beyond
Beyond this little wave we’re sailing on
You go out
Out alone
Into that mystery where we are thrown

Dream beautiful
Dream beautiful
Dream beautiful
Dream
Track Name: The Fallen
We walked with lions through the snow
The tales we can tell
The life we've known
You know where we came from
It’s true we we’re young
And we were strong

We walked with fire in our hearts
Opened our eyes
And played our part
Through dry land and through storms
It's true who we were
Is long gone

Soul fire
I am the morning
You are the sun
All rise up
We are the fallen
We are the sun

Here on the ice
Saw no danger in life
Oh while we all
Fall asleep and we dream

Name your price
Listen only to the wise
Wide awake
With lions clawing at your door
Holding out
You know the dawn will be coming soon
Just long enough
To find the world your looking for
Track Name: Sunlight Breaking
Sunlight breaking on the mountain top
Birds fly over and I’m holding strong
Lying here in the endless summer light
Finding freedom is all I have inside

I lie waiting in the burning cold
You start over
I can't let it go
All our words were like lightning in the dark
Breaking through
Only heartache left to lose

Will we climb?
Leave those days behind?
Heart and soul
I'm still holding on to you

I, I, I hear the bell
High, High, High on the hill

Will we climb?
Leave those days behind?
Heart and soul
I'm still holding on to you

Sunlight breaking on the mountain top
Birds fly over and I’m holding strong
Lying here in the endless summer light
Finding freedom is all I have inside
Track Name: Under The Rule
Stumbled out on an empty street
Where the weak and the wicked weep
Underneath a billowing cloud
In heavy rain, you where lost in the crowd

How I've played this waiting game
Nothing lost and nothing gained
In a world of ashes and dust
Fools gold, thin lines of rust

Under the rule of an empire’s song
You close your eyes and sing along
Look into the fire and see yourself
Would you give your life for someone else?

From the valley to the mountain top
Even the Gods won't carry you across
Upon your throne in the palaces of rage
I bid you well and slowly turn the page

Under the rule of an empire’s song
You close your eyes and sing along
Look into the fire and see yourself
Would you give your life for someone else?
Track Name: Northern Lights
From the southern cross to the northern lights
You were looking for your god, some paradise
It's been so long but still you wait
For that magic moment when it all seems right

I don’t believe the rain will come
Wash away the things you’ve done
Leaving you at ease
You must pay the price like everyone
Unlock the soul to see the sun
Shining from outside

When emotions rise from deep inside
I fear you won’t be here when I need you most
It's in my heart, it's in my soul
But will it ever be enough to keep you satisfied?

Fairy tales of love will soon
Disappear behind the moon
Floating into space
Morning light is closing in
The dream is gone
And now your here waiting to be seen

I don’t believe the rain will come
Wash away the things you’ve done
Pay the price like everyone
Unlock the soul to see the sun
