Swallow The Sun - When A Shadow Is Forced Into The Light lyrics



Tracks



01. When A Shadow Is Forced Into The Light

Inside the night, there's a firelight
Between the worlds
At the edge of dark
Inside the fire there's a blinding light
The flame that burns
Between the worlds
At the edge of the dark

When a shadow is forced into the light
It rips through your chest and burns like a fire
When a shadow is forced into the light
And the blood of the serpents will burst under brightest stars

And the wings will carry these shadow and the light
And the scars like diamonds will cut through the veil of night

The clouds apart and new stars alight
Between the worlds
In the sea of the sky
The sun and moon shines from your eyes
Lead me home through the map of skies
From the edge of the night

When a shadow (Shadow) is forced into the light
It rips through your chest and burns like a fire
When a shadow (Shadow) is forced into the light
And the blood of the serpents will burst under brightest stars

And the wings will carry these shadow and the light
And the scars like diamonds will cut through the veil of night
At the edge of the dark (Dark, dark, dark, dark, dark)
At the heart of the dark (Dark, dark, dark, dark, dark)
At the edge of the dark

Where I stare night straight in the eye
And the demons of deep will arrive
From the wounds they bleed out their black blood like oil
And I spark the flame of the night
And I will melt these chains
And forge them as a crown
Drag those shadows to the light

From the heart of the dark (Dark, dark, dark, dark, dark)
At the edge of the dark (Dark, dark, dark, dark, dark)
From the edge

When a shadow (Shadow) is forced into the light
It rips through your chest and burns like a fire
When a shadow (Shadow) is forced into the light
And the blood of the serpents will burst under brightest stars

02. The Crimson Crown

The crimson crown fell from the blood red sky
Through the golden clouds

Out from the crown grew mountains and the skies
Out from the diamond drops, the sea and stars
Upon the circle shines the all-seeing eye
Between the Earth and the crimson crown
Shines through the golden clouds

The forest sleeps so quiet
Like flowers in your arms
As the white swans of the night
Fly by the bridge of stars
And I bow before the moon and I pray to the skies
When mist falls on your garden
Bless your temple of the star
And the night falls like silence
And the night, like velvet silence

In this temple of the golden Nightingale
These flowers still weep so silent
Dance around the gentle moonlight
With the touch of the summer wind
And the lakes glimmer silver, like the tears from your eyes
But there are no goodbyes
Just light between the stars

Sing for the night
Sing for the morning rise
Like birds of the night upon the light of the Evenstar
The goddess of the sky
A lighthouse in the night
These temples won't fall
Built on a crimson crown

Out from the crown grew mountains and the skies
Out from the diamond drops, the sea and stars
Upon the circle shines the all-seeing eye
Between the Earth and the crimson crown
Shines through the golden clouds

03. Firelights

I'm drowning
In this black stream
Of sunken dreams

Under the water
I'm breathing in
I'm breathing
(The phantoms, the nightmares)

And the firelights
Upon the waters burning
On the isle of time
Where golden torches burning bright
Touch to realize now
All tides of dark are turning
Trust in the night now
Inside the fires burning bright

I'm floating
Upon this black stream
Of broken dreams

Upon the water
I'm bleeding
I'm bleeding
(The phantoms, the nightmares)

And the firelights
Upon the waters burning
On the isle of time
Where golden torches burning bright
Touch to realize now
All tides of dark are turning
Trust in the night now
Inside the fires burning bright

Pull me under
Under these black waves
Fill my lungs with your fire
Their poison ropes cut into my hands

Drown me down to your abyss
Blind my eyes with your blades
I drag you with me into these flames
And all that remains

Are ashes
Of phantoms
Of fears

And the firelights
Upon the waters burning
On the isle of time
Where golden torches burning bright
Touch to realize now
All tides of dark are turning
Trust in the night now
Inside the fires burning bright

04. Upon The Water

Upon the water, song of the birds still echoes silent
Low tide is gone forever
Forever

Cast all the demons in the sea
Into the abyss of the Earth
To the sleep of the wild sun
I want you to bury me, bury me

Upon the water, song of the birds still echoes silent
Low tide is gone forever
Forever
Forever

Below the starlight
Pyres are burning above the water
White ships are gone forever
Forever

Cast all the demons in the sea
Into the abyss of the Earth
In the sleep of the wild sun
I want you to bury me, bury me

Upon the water, song of the birds still echoes silent
Low tide is gone, forever
Forever
Forever

The April skies, singing songs of goodbye
Farewell tonight, leaving with the tide
And the fire burns at the edge of the dawn
And the nightingale (the nightingale) shines upon the water

Cast all the demons in the sea
Into the abyss of the Earth
To the sleep of the wild sun
I want you to bury me, bury me

Upon the water
(Cast all the demons in the sea)
Some of the birds still echo silent
(Into the abyss of the earth)
Low tide is gone, forever (forever)
Forever
(Forever)
Upon the water, song of the birds still echoes silent
Low tide is gone, forever
Forever
Forever

05. Stone Wings

Speak through the silence
Lay down your crown
Lay down your fight

And when you speak
The words of silence
Walls will crumble in
And skies open

And when you speak
You speak with silence, and I
Carve each word you sing
On my stone wings
And the light will pour in

The fires are burning, under starlight
Through veils of golden light
The sails so pure, so white
Through the river of death
I carry you, my love

Breathe in the night
My arms alight

And when you speak
The words of silence
Walls will crumble in
And skies open

And when you speak
You speak with silence, and I
Carve each word you sing
On my stone wings
And the light will pour in now

I threw this iron crown
Into the eye of inferno
This lake of fire, this pit of ghosts
Breathing in the dark
Exhaling the dust of stars

In this shrine of silver light
On the edge of the moon, you sing to me
The river flows deep
Through my heart and through my eyes
As you turn into the light
The dust of silver stars

And then you speak
The words of silence
Walls will crumble in
And skies open

And when you speak
You speak with silence, and I
Carve each word you sing
On my stone wings
And the light will pour in
Carve each word you sing
On my stone wings now

06. Clouds On Your Side

Years passing by
Your mind messed up, so it's life
Where did this come from?

Struggling through the night
With only clouds on your side
It's not true though
It's not true

To bleed
Is to feel
In your core

Dreams
Fall apart
Don't you ever
Don't you ever close your heart to me
Don't you ever
Don't you ever close your heart to me

Things always fall apart
Rips your heart out thousand times
It's not the end though
Falling through the sunken skies
With your words by my side
It's not the end though
It's not the end

To bleed
Is to feel

Dreams
Fall apart
Don't you ever
Don't you ever close your heart to me
Dreams
Fall apart
Don't you ever
Never say never
It's not over now

"Que les cieux noirs d'orage
Chassent le voile devant tes yeux
Ainsi que tu as chuté tu t'élèveras
Tombant au travers des miroirs de ton espirit
Qui t'ont gardé sauf et aveugle
Une chute libre dont tu ne vois pas la fin
À présent laisse l'air caresser ta peau

Gisent encore des fragments épars
Dans la fissure entre les marées
Mais la vérité seule survivra
Tout le reste périra par le feu

Sous des nuages de pluie sombres
À travers ton océan de douleur
Le soleil de nouveau percera
Et tu verras un autre jour"

07. Here On The Black Earth

You're the island
In the sea of time
I'm the ghost ship in the night

In the eye of the storm
You're the lighthouse
I am at the edge of the world
Beyond the walls

Death tore out the flesh from my bones
Left my soul so pale and hollow
My hands reach into the void
Where you used to be
Built my armour from the bones of them angels
Breathing out the arrows of God
My hands reach into the void
Where you used to be

You're the island
On the broken sky
I will keep my sacred vows

Under moonlit skies
Here on the black earth
In the fragments of an empty heart
Where you used to be

Death tore out the flesh from my bones
Left my soul so pale and hollow
My hands reach into the void
Where you used to be
Built my armour from the bones of them angels
Breathing out the wrath of God
My hands reach into the void
Where you used to be

Riding on the edge of the world
Now free like the racing clouds
Circling around the halo of the moon
Like the birds of the night when touched by the sun

You're the island
In the sea of sky
I'm the ghost ship in the night

In the eye of the storm
You're my lighthouse
I'm at the edge
Of the world

08. Never Left

Left my heart on the battlefield
Nothing left to fight for
Strip down all my beliefs
Nothing left to die for

It's too late
To dream again
Of tomorrow without the dark that will remain
Within me

Please light, don't let me win
When I walk into night without you
Please light, hide deep within
Where the shadows can't reach you
Please light, don't let me win
When I walk into night without you
Without you, into the eye

And it's too late
To turn back again
Walk beside, along the light
In the dead of night
Within me

Please light, don't let me win
When I walk into night without you
Please light, hide deep within
Where the shadows can't reach you
Please light, don't let me win
When I walk into night without you
Without you, into the eye

The bridge I built from these empty arms
No life or death will tear these hearts apart
Echoes over aeons of time
Upon the stars
Upon the stars

Please light, don't let me win
When I walk into night without you
Please light, hide deep within
Where the shadows can't reach you
Please light, don't let me win
When I walk into night without you
Without you, into the eye

Empty rooms
But you never left
Empty house
But you never left

Empty heart
But you never left
Empty arms
But you never left

Empty rooms
But you never left
Empty heart
But you never left
Never left
