Lyrics

Lost (2016)

Swim in the Past

Hold my hand just a little more. Take my hand in yours.
Stroke my hair just a few more times before you leave once more
Dry the tears running down my cheek. Soothe me with your touch.
I suppress a silent scream and uneasily fall asleep.

In my dreams you walk right beside me, my dear.
Stormy skies can not last when we swim in the past.
But I know that you can’t stay, and neither can I.
We must part again and start another day.

Stay with me, do not leave again – I need your strength today
Caress my skin like the meadows in wind and help me open my eyes
Lie in my arms and keep me warm, until the dark night comes.
Sing to me with your soothing voice, before I must sleep alone.

 A beacon in my heart, you will stay forever,
guiding me through storms and rain.
Maybe one day I can take a deep breath,
look back, smile and let go of the pain.
But until then… 

One Last Goodbye

How I needed you
How I grieve now you’re gone
In my dreams I see you
I awake so alone

 I know you didn’t want to leave
Your heart yearned to stay
But the strength I always loved in you
Suddenly gave way

Somehow I knew you would leave me this way
Somehow I knew you could never stay
And in the early morning light
After a silent, peaceful night
You took my heart away
And I grieve

 In my dreams I can see you
I can tell you how I feel
In my dreams I can hold you
And it feels so real

 I still feel the pain
I still feel your love
I still feel the pain
I still feel your love

 And somehow I knew
You could never never stay
And somehow I knew you would leave me
And in the early morning light
After a silent, peaceful night
You took my heart away
Oh I wish, I wish you could have stayed 

Deep Down Inside

He’s standing on the shore, naked, praying to an absent God;
longing for yonder the horizon, but he knows he’ll be forever leashed.
Ever since that mournful day, his boat has lain dry.

He stares at the empty sky; no warmth, no sun to shine on him,
but suddenly, carried with the wind: a Melody of Dreams – Long Lost Love.
Displaced feelings are awakened, dreams and hope warms him again.

 Come to me, Love, let’s unite again
far from the grief reigning in your mind – Deep Down Inside.

 A gleam of hope ignites his eyes, and he whispers back “I will find thee”.
He sets sail, but he does not know the way; he’s guided by his longing heart.
Finally the moment arrived, that deep down inside he’s been waiting for.

 Come to me, Love, let’s unite again
far from the grief reigning in your mind.
Find me, my love, I live in your dreams.
I hear how you cry in the pitch black night – Deep Down Inside.

 His life was torn apart, swallowed, by the waves;
endlessly falling down, down.
For years he’s tried to mend these bleeding wounds,
and to appreciate what’s left.
To forge a soul again, from shards of broken love,
is hard ‘tween throes of woe.
‘Cause as the night arrives, and all is dark,
the only thing he hears is her voice

Come to me, Love, let’s unite again
far from the grief reigning in your mind.
Come to me, Love, you must find your peace.
Follow your heart; you know what it means – Deep Down Inside

Come to me, Love, let our souls unite.
Rest in my arms and close your eyes – Deep Down Inside 

Forever Frost (2012)

Forever Frost

My eyes.. closed
My blood.. gone cold
My soul.. gone
My heart.. alone

My arms reach out for the sky
Longing for the sun to shine again
This sea of life I’m sailing, is frozen without you
My only solace is my dream, and to hope that it comes true

Your warming touch would bring me back to life
Guide and heal me, and open up my eyes
Your gorgeous smile would melt me once again
And let me out of this misery I’m in

I am hopeless, cold and lifeless
Every day I’m searching for someone – who can save what I’ve become
Trapped in this everlasting winter of my life
I’m Forever Lost – in Forever Frost

All I have is my hopes and dreams
They keep me trying every day
Only to find I’m still in the same old situation
Like a withered rose in a springless fall 

Your Dream Place

Draw me your dreamplace
Where grass is green, and bright is days
A place filled with light
Sweet dreams comes with the night

Let’s fly together
We’ll fly together
But I can not follow
I will not follow
You have to go alone

There, only joy exist
Sadness is, there, wrapped in mist
There, life does not fret
Nothing turns into threat

Rest your mind and go astray
Close your eyes and fly away
Your dreamplace is where you’ll stay
You let my hand go, and pass away

Let’s fly there together
We’ll fly together
Though I cannot follow
I’ll always follow
You’ll never be alone

You’ll never be alone…

Fall Asleep

Close your eyes and shut out all the fears
Flee from your world of painful tears
To a land where you’re shining bright
Where no shadow hides among the light

So hush, my love
Everything will be fine
Just Fall Asleep
Fall Asleep

Travel far into your mind
Reach your eden, pure, true, divine
I’ll stay with you forever in your dreams
Just close your eyes, you’ll see the light that gleams

 Oh hush, my love
Everything will be fine
Just Fall Asleep
Yes, Fall Asleep

 My journey ends here
But it is not the end
Just Fall Asleep
Sleep – Forever

 Sometimes I wish that my dreams were true
‘Cause then I would spend my life with you
But when the day dawns and I open my eyes
I see no light, only shadows in the skies

 So hush, my love
Everything will be fine
Just Fall Asleep
Yes, Fall Asleep

Escape into dreams
I’ll wait for you there
So, Fall Asleep
Sleep  – Forever

 Sleep – I’ll stay with you
Sleep – Holding you so tight
Sleep – Just close your eyes
Sleep – And we’ll unite again tonight

Be Honest

Who am I?
What is left of me?
The years have gone by
I fade away

Who are you
behind that wall?
Whatever happened
to what we had?

I would like to know,
and please be honest with me;
am I really
the one you want?

What am I
to you?
I feel lonely
when you’re near

Where are you
in your mind?
Have you left this shore
to sail another sea?

I would like to know,
and please be honest with me;
am I really
the one you want?

I would like to know,
are you true to me?
Am I really
the one you love?

Cosmic Shining (Darkseed Cover)

Lyrics by Stefan Hertrich

My Cosmic Shining,
candied with ice
My Cosmic Shining,
candle my light!

The eye of the sun is no more blind
The dawn of a new day reborn

My Cosmic Shining,
my fallen star
I am falling,
lying afar

I walked uproad in showers,
down the rivers of the windfall light
In the garden where the shapes of night
celebrate my fever

I feel my fever, I see me dying
Heal my fever, my Cosmic Shining

I see my dying, my Cosmic Shining
Don’t you see me dying
My Cosmic Shining

Bergtatt

Dypt inn i skogen,
hvor månens lys ei når,
ensom han vandrer,
sorgtung og forlatt.
Fortapt i vonde tanker;
minner fra den natt.

Innhyllet av høstens mørke
og nattens frosne bris,
han begynner snart å fryse,
blir redd og går seg vill,
fordi han lar seg skremme
av mørkets skyggespill.

Han hører stemmer hviske
i den kalde vind.
Hans såre sjel de lokker,
med evig glemsels slør.
Hans brente hjerte lengter
etter å slukke gamle glør.

Kom til meg og ta min hånd,
la meg lege dine sår.
Riv deg løs fra dine bånd
og tre inn i fordums vår

I en liten lysning
han ser et skimrende lys
Som klare bekkers rislen,
som dag etter svart natt.
Han glemmer sine smerter;
Nå er han Bergtatt.

For der står hun og danser,
det vakreste vesen på jord.
Svøpt i skumrings farger,
med hår lik fossens fall.
Sorte øyne som avgrunn dype,
og sang som fossekall.

Hun sa
Kom til meg og ta min hånd,
la meg lege dine sår.
Riv deg løs fra dine bånd
og tre inn i fordums vår.

Kom til meg og ta min hånd,
la meg lege dine sår.
Riv deg løs fra dine bånd
og tre inn i fordums vår.

Han sperrer øynene opp
med hjertet fylt av frykt.
Hans ben og armer bundet
i tjernets trygge fang.
Han lar sitt hode falle
inn i en virkelighet ei sann.

The Game

Nervous as hell, not feeling quite well
It’s really hot in here – “phew”
Just try to smile, show some style
It’s over soon, just don’t swoon

I’m on my way, to say “Hey,
I saw you from across the room
You have this glow, so I wanna know
if you’d take the chance of a dance”

If you can’t take the pain, don’t play the game
Can’t face the shame, don’t shift the blame
It’s not in vain, just try again

Just give it all, if you stutter and fall
Face the shame, get up again
Brush it off, be tough
‘Cause that is the name of the game

If you can’t take the pain, don’t play the game
Can’t face the shame, don’t shift the blame
It’s not in vain, just try again

There is a key, to get to me
But there is no way, that I will say
You’ll have to try if you wanna fly
Just keep your cool, and don’t drool – that’s not cool

If you can’t take the pain, don’t play the game
Can’t face the shame, don’t shift the blame
It’s not in vain, just try again

Dance in the Fire

I’ve never really been the dancing kind
Figured it was not the thing for me
But that was until my eyes found you
And now you’ve turned my world upside down

I used to think that this was all there was for me,
that the cards were dealt and that was it.
That was until we shared a fiery glance
Now I can’t help but ask you to dance.

So come Dance in the Fire with me
We’ll make this floor scorching hot
Come Dance in the Fire with me
It’s time I show you what I’ve got

Your eyes shine like the embers inside of you
Let it blaze as I’ve let mine
You make my heart race like never before
I feel like I am burning in your flames

So come Dance in the Fire with me
We’ll make this floor scorching hot
Come Dance in the Fire with me
It’s time I show you what I’ve got

But the strength I always loved in you
Suddenly gave way

Somehow I knew you would leave me this way
Somehow I knew you could never stay

You took my heart away
And my being (and I grieve?)

In my dreams I can see you
I can tell you how I feel
In my dreams I can hold you
And it feels so real

I still feel the pain
I still feel your love
I still feel the pain
I still feel your love

And somehow I knew
You could never never stay
And somehow I knew you would leave me

And in the early morning light
After a silent, peaceful night
You took my heart away
Oh I wish, I wish you could have stayed
