2. LOVEBEARING STORM

Drowning, lost in the dark cold night
Where she needed me to stay at her side
For the first time I saw my want and will
By her dreams I was chosen to fulfill

Night by night into sleep he fell
Where the need for love gave me my own hell
In the deepest gloom of his misery:
"Will the light of real love ever shine for me?"

I'm the kingdom
I'm the crown
I keep beholding
Whatever is shown
My love is (made) forever
(For) you and me
"May the light of real love always shine for me!"

No more I'm lost in the dead of the night
We have found each other, a lover, a bride
No more lonesome gazing at the moon anymore
"In your heart I witnessed what my life is for!"

A lover's promise, the test of time
My heart is yours, will yours be mine
When the storm rose over thy boat at sea
Thou were saving my life, and you cared for me

Beneath the sea I drowned in despair
Was it wise or not to take me there
But no long time passed and the truth did come
For each other we've shown up as the only one

A different kind of morning, light is breaking and dawn over me
Embraced by your gentleness and wisdom I turn free from sleep
May our hearts beat together, make eternity shine,
For a second of living, a (sweet) moment in time

And riding through the ocean I see that there's nothing to fear,
For living is like dancing in the heaven of dreams when you're near
May the world fall apart now, may the ocean dry,
We have seen what it is worth living (for), for a moment in time


3. SILENCE

All those precious moments
Lost in space and time
For the only reason
She's not of my kind

Everything seems so small
When I hold her close
Everything great is mine,
Even sunrise

"Never to let me go"
For another
"Never to leave me blind"

As the day is fading
And I rest beyond the shores
Sick of life, yet living
Brought to sleep by tidal force

Whatever it will take
To bring her body close
Whatever it will need
No tomorrow

Anywhere I go
"This is not the end"
But a world to leave

Live this time again, before the dawn will end your sorrow,
And make love again, a dream of love, pretending hope
You could be everything for me, my friend, and then
We will be

Before the sands of time can wipe away your tears, come follow me
Into deeper seas, where light is spent, for your healing
We will be everything and then, my friend, you know the meaning
Love will be


4. MERMAID'S WINTERTALE

In nights when the moon shines, she's full of unrest,
Because her heart often cries for some gentle caress
When dawn rises up and she takes the first breath
Of the new day, she knows that not much she had left

Anywhere else would be more joy to find,
Than here in this place where her memories unwind
Of summer that's gone such a long time ago,
Delusions confessed under cold winter snow

I do believe that my life is not mine
I'm weak and I fear that it will take sometime
To find somewhere to be where my heart can be free
For a moment of light surely waits there for me

Beyond the endless hallway to the soul
In the most scaring depth of this nightmare's black hole
Gazing at freedom in white, fragile hands,
She takes a first look at the first time she'll dance

His divine embrace will enchant this occasion,
His kiss will bring her to her knees if she dares,
To open the gates to her most inner self,
She will get more than ever she dreamt

Without a trace of a sound I will leave
And find love in the arms of the man of my dreams
A sailor, a fisher, a child of the sea
Doesn't matter, as long he's gentle to me…

Would anybody ever care for me?
For a girl that lives beneath the sea?
Would anybody ever hold my hand?
For a moment, for a while


5. LORDS OF THE SEA

Fighting their fear and facing the wrath
Of others to join them and flames to impact
No rules of engagement, no spoilers for violent desires

Hungry for power the beasts clash within
The walls of the townhall, where soon one will sing
Of merciless battles, fought by the lords of the sea

The beating fists, the fiery breath
Of the dragons
Fills the place with it's own scent,
The scent of power

No mercy, no mercy!
For the faint at heart, the weak!
They're falling, they're falling!
But no one of them does weep!

Acting as if they were thirsty for death
Unfilled and still mighty their hunger for flesh
Bones cracking loud when the end takes control of those living

Honor is asking a price much to high
When moments of agony soon pass them by
Victory got it's own hell for them as they defend it

"Driven by hate I feel for all of them who take control
Of all my want and all my will, I can't deny their end is near"

So my hero takes his final breath
Not a word left before he falls for me

"Failed to knock them down, I saw thy image crumble as they pass
Your dead body lying on a stone as your soul is drained within..."

Before thee, end thee, save thee, behold me...
Force thee, hate thee, kill thee, can't do that...

"Every moment I can get to take a hold of my heart
I try to find a way to keep my life a lasting second on the run"

Eye for an eye, son for a son
Life for a life,
Not! Resist your hate!


6. SEDUCED LIKE MAGIC

She took away reality and brought me to this place to see,
I never thought that this could be for real
While often life is cold and I'm sometimes feeling sold,
There seems to be another realm where I can feel a higher sense

The way she brought me there was somehow wicked and obscure,
But like a child I lost the doubt when I saw light
I could not understand how I did breathe and opened eyes beneath the sea,
But my heart followed her call that took me away

Easily she got me done, this night
I never saw something like this before…

To prey I'm fallen, to seductive art
(of) a mistress of the warm sea at night,
A witch of the waves

Storms can't kill the faith in rainbows,
But when the dawn does come you should
Wrap your arms around the right one

No need for nothing else I felt and so I could let the ice melt
Between us and I took her really near
For a single moment that did take away my sense for what is real
And what was just a great illusion of a dream

Addicted to her fingertips I reached out for her hand, her lips
And finally her cloak did disappear
But when I took her in my arms, and held her close, I felt no heart
And found that she was nothing more than faking me to death

Reason's light had got me back, again
So hard to wake, when all you (thought you) "loved", is gone


7. ECLIPSE

"I still can feel your heartbeat,
And what did you expect?
Anguish by loves or lusts relics?
The warmth of thy desire,
Felt so cold, left thee to shame,
A waste of all the time you spent to breathe?"

In between debris you'll leave me,
Broken hearted, cold as stone,
My world, you will be trading it for free

And I can see the morning rise,
When you will see another dawn,
The ashes of the sweet moments these nights

"How can you live with this concept?"
How could I live without my wrath?
"With deepest sorrow, dark as death…"

"I would give in to your world,
If you'd take me by the hand,
So far away this day might be, I'd wait…
Not to dare a single dream in me,
I feel so bare without,
The risk you never take means pain, can't see…"

So you hit my door and think,
That I'll be on my way to keep
The wounds at heart wide open, as your prey?

And I can see this storm go by,
Leaving me, exposed to shame,
For wishes, that we shared by nights and days

What do you think did I expect?
"A life in sorrow, dark as death?"
What do you think would I regret?


8. THE QUEST

A misty morning, I'm awake
The storm has settled, past's the rage
The fever of the wind is gone
The (first) beams of sunlight soon will come

I love the flood, I love the tide
The spinning hurricane's alright
No need to mention the sea - lore
I own the wisdom of…

The sea I know, my bride and my disguise
The answer to all my questions

I'm a creature of the sea,
Where I find everything I need
Of every star I know the name,
The benefits of my bright fame

Whatever I've on mind will come,
By day the moon, by nights the sun
As long as I will have a ship,
I can and will sail ‘cross…

The sea I know, my bride and my disguise
The sequel of reality

From the stars above, she has come to sail the world,
By her fate enforced to rule
In her veins the blood is of water and of salt,
In her eyes the white is clouds

The finest wisdom I received
From deepest pits and my beliefs
In mystic spirit lies my kind
A world beyond control...

No need for reason in my mind
In lasting faith I do define
My world is filled with finest art
That nature made so kindly...


9. CHASING THE LIGHT

Freedom for all was the vision he had,
Since the day he became the ruler there
And dark times did pass in this moment of light
For his reign brought the end of all the wrath

And he does not want anyone to be alone,
Or feel like a lesser creature there
But a witches of the waves did take someone away
Who was far too beloved to get lost…

"Find him, save him, tell him, show him,
Make him feel that he is not alone…
For my daughter want to love him,
And to give his heart a home!"

"Through the sea he will hunt,
Through the ocean ride,
For it's him she will blame,
If he can't save his life…
He can't stop till he wins,
For the oath of the king,
Is the heart of the sea,
Hunting hard, hunting free"

Sleeping by day, finding no rest by night,
For a bright fire burning in his heart
Wishing for home as the first dusk sets in,
Far away from his daughter's gentle hand

Witnessing the face of unfulfilled desire,
And leaving himself in loneliness
The fight will go on, till he gets what he wants,
Nothing there will ever make him stop…

For both men have learnt the cold truth of this fight,
Their friendship will last for their lives


10. ATLANTIS FAREWELL

"Not fair, a tale for drowning souls on higher grounds
As even wishes play their game
It's like the joy of lying naked in the sand,
And yet no reason to constrain..."

Sleeping as she took herself to the ground
While the questions are waiting in time
Praying for answers and moments that pass,
On her shoulders the burden of light

Let her see her final morning,
For a while she gets too far
For the lifespan of a tear drop
will this sunrise take her heart
And a lapse of reason then,
For the beauty of the end

"Fare thee well, my sweet Atlantis,
For our paths will cross again,
This goodbye now will not last
And the day of my return
Is so sure as it can be"
And she starts to smile again

12. MERMAID'S WINTERTALE

In nights when the moon shines, she is full of unrest
Because her heart often cries for some gentle caress
When dawn rises up and she takes the first breath

Of summer that is gone such a long time ago
Delusions confessed under cold winter snow

"Would anybody ever care for me?
For a girl that lives beneath the sea?
Would anybody ever hold my hand?
For a moment for a while?"

Reason's light had got me back, again
So hard to wake, when all you "loved", is gone

To prey I'm fallen, to seductive art
(Of) a mistress of the warm sea at night
A witch of the weaves

Storms can't kill the faith in rainbows
But when the dawn does come you should
Wrap your arms around the right one
