01. The Perfect Symmetry

Music & lyrics by Nicolas Chapel
I won't laugh now that your precious sun has gone
I won't pray for the rain to come
Words make me feel like a newborn
A new time has come, I will live it on my own

But how did it all come down?

Keep your head up now, your precious son has grown
You'll have to wait for the rain to come
A blank page's worth a thousand words
When only one song could destroy them all

And why couldn't it be this one?
I wrote it on my own before the Dawn

I won't cry now, the insiders are free to leave
I feel at peace with the flood still waiting
I created these worlds, one by one, word by word
If there was a song that could destroy them all
Why should I sing it now that I feel all alone?

And why couldn't it be this one?
I wrote it on my own before the Dawn

I was warned but now that my time has come
Please let me drown just one more time
Before the Dawn

I was strong but now my kingdom's come down
I'll wear my crown just one more time
Before the Dawn

How did it all come down? Why am I the only one?
Leave the dark and see the light
There is no need to look back
Leave the dark, Life seems so bright
We'll free yourself from your thoughts
Now that it's time to grow up
Don't tell me so when no one's around
Leave the dark, Life seems so bright, we won't stab you in the back...

But how did it all come down?...

I was warned but now that my time has come
Please let me drown just one more time
Before the Dawn

I was strong but now my kingdom's come down
I'll wear my crown just one more time
Before the Dawn

But how did it all come down?


02. Shine

Music & lyrics by Nicolas Chapel
Wake up
And listen to the waves
Is there a word that could wash away your tears at your will?

Stand up
And listen to the wind
Is there a moment you can sit down and stay still?

Now lay down
And feel your life leaving
Is there a heart that could beat by your side if you can't believe in yourself?

In you... And what lies beneath
You... in truth... And what lies underneath

There's no need to learn anything
No need to forget anything
You never listened anyway

There's no need to learn any song
Take my hand and we'll carry on
Remember what you wished to be

Now we're going home


03. Sapphire

Music & lyrics by Nicolas Chapel
Feeding the machine
From this inner cage I made my body
My son is staring at a sun that's still to come
But go figure it all, was it worth searching far beyond?

Scratching the surface
From this inner grave I built my country
My love, I finally found the one I belong to
But go figure it all, was it worth waiting for so long
To become the stone...?

Follow me here, I'm on my way back
Crimson, we've become the stone and time may come
See the man I've become
And follow the child inside until he's grown up
Before he goes away

Memories and expectations
All is moving in so similar ways
Small rooms or huge surroundings
There's no use when you are the missing

I think I'm getting used to - the fear of getting used to you
I think we're getting used to - the fear of living for two

Follow me here I'm on my way back home or then bury me here or take my hand back stronger...
Follow me here I'm on my way back home, you can bury me here or take my hand back stronger...


04. Naive

Music & lyrics by Nicolas Chapel
This is what I call a new day
I'll miss the Worlds before the Dawn
Fallen or gone, I am your angel
Make my wings strong, I'll keep you warm
I was sitting, tired but breathing
Hoping the sun would touch my skin

Come fly with me, anytime you want
My wings are made of our dreams
Come make me feel anything you want
And nobody will show you we're not real

Fallen or gone, I saw an angel
Reminding me of what we wished to be
I was sitting, tired but breathing, hoping her hand would touch my skin
This time I won't let them scar your wings
Show them what they wished they'd never see

Come fly with me, anytime you want
My wings are made of our dreams
Come make me feel anything you want
And nobody will show we're not
Come have shelter anywhere you want
Put out to sea and chase your fears
Come and ask me anything you want, to thank you for making me feel so

This is what I call a new day
This is what I call a new way
My wings are made of our dreams
To thank you for making me feel so real...


05. Unspoken

Music & lyrics by Nicolas Chapel
Sometimes - so strange - cut up the pain
Some things - arrange - always the same
Come into the scene - closer - and please smile again
Come for a walk - together - in this wasteland

These comforting words I'd want you to hear - I'm only dreaming

This is the moment I was waiting for
I was burning to welcome you into my world
So tired of crossing your path once more
I thought we'd walk the same way after all

The words are yet to come,
And still I feel like silence is meaning so much more
To tell you what's unspoken but remains inside
I feel so quiet I will rise

Sometimes - so strange - cut up the pain
These comforting words I'd want you to say - I'm only craving

In this dream I never had before
The warmth filling me makes me crave for more
The space between us doesn't matter
Within this time we spent together

The words are yet to come
And still I feel like silence is meaning so much more
To tell you what's unspoken but remains inside
I feel so quiet I will rise

Tonight - you just - cut up the pain
Nothing will never be the same
I'll leave - the scene - but please smile again
Thanks for the walk - together - we'll meet again...


06. Temple

Music & lyrics by Nicolas Chapel
Imagine a temple in your dreams
Where even all my fears won't make you disappear

Imagine these feelings we could share
You'd keep them in your head, even when I'm dead

Imagine now, imagine now (but you can't) Imagine...

Remember this ringing in your ears
Sounded like my biggest fear and you made it disappear

Remember now these feelings that we shared
How they whisper in your ears even when I'm far away

Remember now this temple in my dreams
Where even all your fears won't make me disappear

Remember now these moments that we shared
Now they will stay in your head even when I'm dead

Remember now, remember now

I won't say goodbye this time
I won't let you die inside my mind


07. Empire

Music & lyrics by Nicolas Chapel
Saying goodbye is saying die
Will you ever remember, Awakening or slumber?

I won't ask you to fly so high
But help me to lift that weight I'm feeling deep inside

And this place that's so familiar
Will stay our temple forever
We'll see the light brighter than ever

Whether you choose to stay
Or if choose to go away
Your life is ours and there is no other way

And if one day I chose to run away
We'll be together when we remember that day

I still feel the sun is trying
But I remember deep within
That I will miss you all when you leave me

And remember now
These moments that we shared
Will never make me forget why I chose to stay

It's an awakening
Down on slumber
Awakening
It's the Dawn of slumber

Choose to stay
Or if I choose to run away
Your life is ours and there is no other way

Contemplate now
This temple in my dreams
Where even all our fears won't make me disappear
Remember now
These feelings we once shared
Keep them in your head
Even when we're far away from awakening
Down on slumber
Awakening, Dawn of slumber

I won't say goodbye this time
I won't let you die inside my mind
Don't tell me goodbye this time or don't let me die inside my mind...


08. Sand

Music & lyrics by Nicolas Chapel
Deaf, numb and run-down
Fastened-seatbelt homeward-bound
Landing checks and gear down
A ten-hour flight hits the ground
And all that I once knew is gone
Eyes open wide,
Dawning on wasted mourning hours
An aerial slide,
And a led screen counting down the miles
Here comes the time I swirl on the downside world

Gear up to take off
If anything is turning you off
Next time good son,
Don't look down while you leave the ground
Head up, and swirl on the downside world


Now hours pass like centuries
And empty minutes feel like years
The engine rumbling in my ears
Won't make the memories disappear

For family and friends, for passengers
A postcard's worth an open letter
We never met, we never will
They're scared and all I need's a thrill

All this is now so far away
And yet it feels like yesterday
When she was drawing lines in the sand
That I was holding in my hand
Holding in my hand
Held it in my hand
Hold it in your hand


All this is now so far away
And yet it feels like yesterday
Did it have to end that way
When there was so much left to say?
For family, friends, for passengers
The show is over
When we are down
Where are we crashing down?...

You know when hours feel like years
This cold and sleepless night aside
An engine's rumbling in my ears,
A led screen's counting down the miles
For family, friends, for passengers
The show is over
May it all swirl
Down on the outside world


You know when hours feel like years
From the pain and shivers that subside
Like this cancer corroding our dreams
These needles emptying down the vials
For family, friends, for passengers
A postcard's worth an open letter
We'll meet again, I'm sure we will
You're scared and all I need's a thrill


You know when hours feel like years
In cold and sleepless nights you shine
In the engine rumbling in my ears,
On led screens counting down the miles
For family, friends, for passengers
The show is over
May it all swirl
Down on the outside world

I'm seeing the Earth from a plane
Where precious space and time sustain
And you are drawing lines in the sand
I keep on holding in my hand
No family, friend, no passenger
The show is over
When we are down,
Where are we crashing down...?

And i remember hours felt like years
Hoping this pain and shivers would subside
Like this cancer corroded our dreams,
These needles emptied down the vials
No family, friends, nor passengers
The show is over
And now we all swirl
Down on the outside world
May it all Swirl
Down on the outside world

Swirl...


I'm seeing the Earth from a plane
Where precious space and time sustain
We'll meet again, I'm sure we will
You're scared and I just got my thrill

I'm spinning around in my head
Every word that you said
And everything we have been
That we were holding in our hands

Deaf, numb and run-down
Fastened-seatbelt, homeward-bound
Landing checks and gear down
A ten-hour flight hits the ground
And all that I once knew is gone
All that I once knew is gone


09. Earth

Music & lyrics by Nicolas Chapel
We are feeding the machine
From this inner cage I made your body
Be now, but don't stare at me now, I'm nearly gone
But go figure it all, was it worth searching far beyond?
Then I will carry on...

Gathering space and time
When I am yours and you are mine
This life will carry us away in the glimpse of an eye
The smile on your face today shows in everything you say
That this life will carry us away
But in this realm, I am eternal

Scratching the surface
From this inner grave I built you a country
My love, this kingdom's not the one we belong to
But don't be ashamed at all, it was worth hiding for so long
Now we are made of stone...

Gathering space and time
When I am yours and you are mine
This life will carry us away in the glimpse of an eye
The smile on your face today shows in everything you say
That this life will carry us away
But in this realm, I am eternal

Wake up, we listened to the waves
We found the word that could wash away your tears at your will

Stand up, we listened to the wind
We found a moment to just slow down and stay still

Now lay down and feel our love growing
Now that our hearts can beat side by side, now we can believe in ourselves
And what lies beneath
Us, the earth, and what lies underneath

Gathering space and time
When I am yours and you are mine
This life will carry us away in the glimpse of an eye
The smile on your face today shows in everything you say
That this life will carry us away
But in this realm, I am eternal

I won't say this every time
I won't let your say it's sad
