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

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?

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

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

Out Beyond 05:33
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

The Fallen 04:36
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

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

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?
9.
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
