01. Meaning Of Forever I

Here I go again
My closest friend
Has walked the path of heaven
Just when you think your life is endless
You'll be reminded of
How nothing last forever
See me falling down
I need someone.
To put my heart together
A million pieces scattered

I long to see your face
I'm gonna hide you in a place
Where even death can't make us part
I'll keep you locked into my heart
Until we meet again
And I'll live again
When we have joined forever
Eventually together

Your light had died
Your eyes, so cold and empty
You have gone, where are you
How I yearn to
Be there where you are
No matter how far
Someone tell me what it takes to see you
I would leave it all behind to see you
I would leave this world behind you

And every night I float away
Into a tranquil sleep
In every dream I am foretold
Of the day we'll meet

I mourn of you
I yearn for you

Here I go again
My closest friend
Has walked the path of heaven
Now I know why life's not endless
It's a reminder of
The meaning of forever


02. Of Stars And Flowers

How can a pebble get a pearl to its side
How can a duck court a swan
How can the night have the day to avoid it
How can water join with fire

Days will pass leaving me to drown
In the endless depths of my heart
Can this stubborn man ever let go
Of what he knows he won't have

How can a desert have a rose to bloom
How can a fish walk the lands
How can a dove get to reach the sun
Without burning its wings

Months will pass leaving me to freeze
In the raging cold of my heart
Can this bitten man ever let go
Of what he knows he won't have

Years will pass leaving me to burn
In the passionate fires of my heart
Certain this man will never let go
Of what he knows he won't have

I reach out for the stars above my head
Not noticing the flowers all around me.


03. Meaning Of Forever II

The shallow waters
Reflect the pale blue moon
The trees they whisper
On the wind

An autumn breeze
Runs a shiver down my spine
I'm freezing but I
Don't feel like leaving right now

This shore upon the lakeside
Where we first met
Where we kissed
In the light of the moon

An autumn breeze
Runs a shiver down my spine
I'm freezing but I
Don't feel like leaving right now

Here it seems I'm getting closer to you
In the wind I hear your name

And I wish you would be into my life forever
That would really ease this pain

A bank of clouds
Covers the pale blue moon
The surface wrinkles
On the wind

An autumn breeze
Runs a Cold in to my heart
I'm frozen but I
Don't feel like leaving right now

This shore upon the lakeside
Where we last met
Where we danced
In the light of the moon

An autumn breeze
Runs a Cold in to my heart
I'm frozen but I
Don't feel like leaving right now

Here it seems I'm drifting farther from you
As it slowly starts to rain

I wish you would be out of my life forever
That would really ease this pain
And as with rain my tears start falling
I set off for home again


04. Fading Beauty

When the dark and cold winterdays
Are drawing near
And the snow is falling down
When the northern winds are howling
In remembrance of you

I still see your shining face again
Your amazing beauty
Always turned this wretch into a man

We assumed it would never end
But time was not our friend
I cry out in the blackened sky
As I watch your beauty die

As I watch you suffer
As I watch you scream
As I watch you falling down
Fading

And I shed a tear
For your long lost soul
For your fading beauty
Never to return

In solitude, I cry alone
In my mortality

I dance the final way
To my unknown destination
A gothic dance with you
In my unreality

What you are is what you are
And what I am means nothing
What you want is what you get
But what you'll get is nothing
Nothing will ever please you now
A simple wish, your beauty
Return sometimes, somehow

I'll take my dreams, my memories
My long-gone hope you'll return
When the winter leaves this love behind
It's time to say goodbye

When the long winterdays
Are drawing near
When the black soil
Turns to white
When sounds of joy and fear
Are silenced by the snow

As I watch you suffer
As I watch you scream
As I watch you falling down
Fading

And I shed a tear
For your long lost soul
For your fading beauty
Never to return?

When love captures me
In its bitter sweet sense
When reality hides away
In its own secret shadow
When the beauty fades to nothing
When the magic in your eyes
Fades away
I say goodbye
As I watch you beauty die

Knowing you loved me


05. Nothing More To See

Here I am
Wondering where you are
Those same thoughts
Come to me again
Please release me
From this pain
There must be a way
To ease this hurt again
Let me know
Let me find
The way to go
Let me see
Let me hear
The way to you again

Once all I had - now gone
Once all I loved - now gone
Once all I saw - now gone
Once all I've let go

I look in your eyes and know
This sparkling flame becomes a fire
A fire that embraces us both
Nothing more or less between us
Nothing more to feel

Drawing tears
I wipe from my face
Is it true I'll never feel
your warm embrace?
Those same thought
Come to me again

There must be a way
To ease this hurt again
Let me know
Let me find
The way to go
Let me see
Let me hear
The way to you again

Nothing more to see than this
This felling I'll keep forever
Forever in my soul, mind and heart
Hard to feel nothing than this
To feel nothing more than this

Nothing more to see


06. Memories Never Die

Endless dreams flowing silently
Like wins against my face
Like a lost youth that comes back to me
It speaks to me

Ascending visions of my agony
They force me to confess
That time is now
And they are echoes of my memories

Leaving colors of my blackened sight
In tears behind
Must find the way, just leave the pain
Struggling trough an other day

Take a rum to the water
Wash away all my deepest pains
Forget the past and the present
And take me to another day

The sleepless night I left behind
Facing just another day
Drawing tears, I weep inside
Trying to find my way
I will do anything
To change the things I did wrong
Now take me to another day

Endless dreams flowing silently
Like wind against my face
Like a lost youth that comes back to me
It speaks to me
It waits for me
It follows me everywhere
Everywhere I go

Take a run to the water
(release me)
Wash away all my deepest pains
(no longer imprisoned)
Forget the past and the present
(take me to another day)
And take me to another day

And as I stare into this dark cold water
I see my own reflected pain
Will it take long, for the sun
To shine upon and warm me?
Will death come silently?
Oh, this cold remembrance
I say goodbye now
Oh, how I long to sleep forever
I'm gone


07. What Once Was

The smothering darkness drifted away
The sky has cleared for me now
I see now what my purpose is
I'm no longer floating away
When she came into my life
Everything just fell into place
My pain and grief were washed away
And the light started to shine

What I have always looked for
Has now come to my path

When she came into my life
Everything just fell into lace
My pain and grief were washed away
And the light started to shine

Screaming hard and bursting through
My beating heart has been ripped out
All my colors torn away
Only left the deepest black
I went back the way it was
Surrounded by the darkest mist
I once still had the will to live

What has passes now
Flashes before my eyes
It is all coming black
Like cloud into my mind
It is getting clear
What has come to pass
She came into my life
I found my peace
And felt at ease

The she suddenly died
Taken by what consumed her
It drove her insane
Lost her senses, lost her smile
Lost her long blond hair

take by what consumed her
It drove her insane
When she just could bear no more
It took her away

Screaming heard and bursting through
My beating hear has been ripped out
All my colors torn away
Only left the deepest black

It went back the way it was
Surrounded by the darkest mist
I once still had the will to live
But that has come to an end


08. Sound Of Violence

Our killing spree of violence
Spreads further away
Inevitable, unstoppable
We'll never go away
Until we've killed their kin
A fight we cannot win

We are willingly prepared to sacrifice
The lives of those we love
What unforgivable bitterness has driven us
Into this incomprehensive cause
Love will die
Where hatred thrives

The silent side of violence
comes closer every day
Invisible, unstoppable
They will not go away
until they've taken what is ours
Until they've killed our kin
A fight they'll never win

A sudden flashback in time and memory
Silence, for a second
The world seems to hold its breath
Like a child pauses before bursting into crying

And then...
In the largest gust of sound ever imaginable
I am overwhelmed
By the rolling laughter of hatred

The howling of sirens
Resounded with the crying
Of men, women and children
In turn in despair
For a comforting word
A familiar face
But all I find are strangers
From far beyond my darkest dreams
How will I ever forget their faces?

Why am I supposed to fight
A foe I did not choose
What good are games without an end
In which one only lose
This never-ending hate of ours
Will tear this world apart
Until eventually the beating stops
The beating of our hearts


10. Serenity

Once, when the dark veil
Had covered the lands
And it seemed to have frozen time
I stood there in wonder of
What the light had left behind
I wandered through there vast
and untouched lands
Unaware of being trapped
In a dreamlike state of mind

The unspoiled - endless
Beauty - as old as time
It takes - caught me
My breath - unawares
It freezes - my blood
My memory - my body
Puny - mortal
That I am - not worthy

It's like - soundless
Scaring peace - screaming
Subconscious - deafening
Silence - striking
Restrictive - oppressive
Release - of feeling
Overwhelming - unrestrained
Eternity

In the black of the night
It has taken hold of me
When all was lost and far away
I saw into eternity
What I never recognized
Got me to my knees
Can it be the guidance of
Serenity

Unbridled - erupting
Power - adrenaline
It flows - perceptible
Through me - my veins
I can't - ever
Imagine - life
To be without - this feeling of
Serenity

In the black of the night
It has taken hold of me
When all was lost and far away
I sae into eternity
What I never felt before
Is now clear to me
It is the guidance of
Serenity!
