Why do you wait For better days to come! Fly over ground Go straight up through the clouds Your life on the border You have always been! In that space between Memories fading A future is waiting Out in the water A pearl has grown Where the pain was thrown! Deeper and deeper You're diving to find her What do you want ? Do you really know ? Set sail to the point Where water meets the sky Time is a healer So hard to see What is meant to be Show me the meaning Of all that I'm feeling Out on the water So far away From the games we play Scatter your ashes Build a new fire  Lay your body on the cold ground Lift your spirit up and hear the sound My lover you will always be Like a paper fire burning free Your life on the border You have always been In that space between Memories fading A future is waiting Out on the water A pearl has grown Where the pain was thrown Deeper and deeper You're diving to find her

Before you knew i was all ready lost A thousand miles from the man i was Before you lay with me i lost my way I have no memory of a higher place I fell into you Breaking my soul Against your heart Breaking my soul Crystal clear Against your heart Before you love me you must know the truth I have no remedy for the hurt in you Before the morning comes I hold you near Face our enemies that are hiding here I fell into you Breaking my soul Against your heart Breaking my soul Crystal clear Against your heart

A walking shadow Got left behind A falling darkness And the street lights that shine Stepping over Across the line Dissolution And the freedom you find I know you want me to come home again I know you've waited for me all your life I know that nothing's gonna change the way I live my life So you're going A thousand miles From Wyoming To defend a child A mother's daughter A father's son In your blood line The same rivers run I know you want me to come home again I know you've waited for me all your life I know that nothing's gonna change the way I live my life It's only love You're looking for You got it baby You needed more The way you live your life

Love, it's in my veins Under a darkened sky we meet again! Like a ghost, you're walking through me There are times when all I feel is pain! I'm tired of walking alone Won't you stay? I need you here by my side Empires on fire Two worlds collide When the blind lead the blind Through the darkness shine Empires on fire I watch the flames grow higher Love, it's on your lips From the edge your life slowly slips From the dark you make your way Down the lonely road where we used to play This time I won't let rage draw the line! Between what's yours And what is mine Empires on fire Two worlds collide When the blind lead the blind Through the darkness shine Empires on fire I watch the flames grow higher Wide awake when the wolves cry Staring straight in the whites of there eyes Somewhere out in the lost life You find... Love is not weak or blind Love is lying wide awake Underneath every breath that you take Satisfied to throw your stones Across the border to our homes Now I see what I have lost And I know I must pay the cost To love you like I used to do Let the morning shine through

The past is gone Future is waiting Where are you standing ? Get your feet on solid ground The water is rising You can’t swim across Wearing your armour Leave your heart on the rocks How I was hoping the wounds we had opened would heal How I was hoping the love we had broken would heal The cane fields are burning Black smoke in the sky Ashes returning back to the soil It came from the east Wild thundering storm The veil between us and the lie here has gone How I was hoping the wounds we had opened would heal How I was hoping the love we had broken would heal How I was hoping that someday you finally would feel How I was hoping the wounds we had opened would heal How I was hoping the love we had broken would heal How I was hoping that someday Our love is coming back Are you coming back?

Searchlights on looking for you In a burned out world you shine through You came to call this your home But will it ever be what you want it to be Be free There's something out there in the dark Shining only for you I feel a fire in my heart There's something out there in the dark Searchlights on looking for you I believe in the soul but I have no proof I dive alone in the sea at night No longer terrified of the truth I would find beneath There's something out there in the dark Shining only for you I feel a fire in my heart There's something out there in the dark I'm tired of waiting for the right time To come and give me what is mine It's someone else's dream tonight But it's not going to be enough for me I need to shine bright I need to shine There's something out there in the dark Shining only for you I feel a fire in my heart There's something out there in the dark

One by One 03:56
I won't cry When we say goodbye I won't try to be strong When you're gone I'm wide awake I feel the ties that will not break Out in the storm you have no form When you're gone One by one, we all become undone Two by two, true love will find me and you I can't breathe Or feel alive underneath these trees Out in the field walking blind It's a dream One by one, we all become undone Two by two, true love will find me and you I see it in your eyes again, I see it in your eyes again Your buried in disguise again, I see it in your eyes I see it in your eyes again, I see it in your eyes again Your buried in disguise again, I see it in your eyes One by one, dry your tears in the morning sun Two by two, true love will find me and you One by one, We slowly come undone Two by two, My love, me and....

Nothing left to say Nowhere else to go It's only you and me here on my own Shallow empty days Passing street parades We both know something's got to change I got you red roses but still you sleep I got no words for keeping you alive I'm dying with you baby, I am dying here Dying with you baby I'm dying with you baby, I am dying here Dying with you baby, I am Well I had a taste Of that perfect place Who am I to say you can’t replace Took the morning train Past the dawn lit harbor For seven days a fire burned for love I got new eyes for loving Got more than faith I got this boat for crossing through time I'm dying with you baby, I am dying here Dying with you baby I'm dying with you baby, I am dying here Dying with you baby, I am I'm dying with you baby, I am dying here Dying with you baby I'm dying with you baby, I am dying here Dying with you baby

Cease Fire 03:47
The rocks weigh heavy upon your feet! As you walk down narrow winding streets! In shadows and violence be careful where you lay! It's the saddest story for you today! ! Lay down your weapons now! No one can win this war! Cease fire and call a truce! Cut your self loose! ! In an ivory tower you wait for someone! To bring you a message of a new born son! For a peaceful life the angels cry! "God sleeps right by your side"! ! Lay down your weapons now! No one can win this war! Cease fire and call a truce! Cut your self loose! ! The rocks weigh heavy upon your feet! As you walk down narrow winding streets! In shadows and violence be careful where you play! It's the saddest story for you today!

Plant a seed Turn the soil Hold this life and then you lose it well All the same Born of steel Hardened hearts cannot be made to feel 50,000 miles from home I can hear your rising storm Through the dark and clear unknown Tonight tonight tonight, You lie And say we were in love, Oh why For me, for me, for me, Go blind Tonight, tonight, tonight, We lie Breaking waves On your back A pound of flesh for everything you lack Plant a seed Turn the soil Hold this life and then you lose it well 50,000 miles from home I can hear your rising storm Through the dark and clear unknown Tonight tonight tonight, You lie And say we were in love, Oh why For me, for me, for me, Go blind Tonight, tonight, tonight, We lie A rage of ruin And morning light Fields of colour A fallen sky A raging river We are torn apart The silent distance That breaks your heart Tonight tonight tonight, You lie And say we were in love, Oh why For me, for me, for me, Go blind Tonight, tonight, tonight, We lie
