See Who I Am

Is it true what they say
Are we too blind to find a way
Fear of the unknown
Cloud our hearts today

Come into my world
See through my eyes
Try to understand
Don’t wanna lose what we have

We’ve been dreaming
For who can’t deny
It’s the best way of living
Between the truth and the lies

[Chorus:]
See who I am
Break through the surface
Reach for my hand

And shout out that we can
Free your mind and find a way
The world is in our hands
This is not the end

Fear is withering the soul
At the point of no return
We must be the change we wish to see

I’ll come into your world

See through your eyes
I’ll try to understand
Before we lose what we have

We just can’t stop believing
Because we have to try
We can rise above the truth and the lies

[Chorus:]
See who I am

Break through the surface
Reach for my hand
And shout out that we can
Free your mind and find a way
The world is in our hands

See who I am
Break through the surface
Reach for my hand

And shout out that we can
Free your mind and find a way
The world is in our hands

This is not the end

Hear the silence
Reach out my blame
Will our strength remain?
If the power rise

[Chorus:]
See who I am
Break through the surface
Reach for my hand
And shout out that we can
Free your mind and find a way
The world is in our hands

See who I am

Break through the surface
Reach for my hand
And shout out that we can
Free your mind and find a way
The world is in our hands

This is not the end

Jillian

I’ve been dreaming for so long
To find the meaning
To understand
The secret of life
Why am I here
To try again

We’ll always

We’ll always
See the truth,
When it stares ya in the face
Will I ever
Will I never free my self
Breaking these chains

[Chorus:]
In my heart in my soul

I turn it back it’s my fault
Your destiny is forlorn
After the turning sign
In my heart in my soul
I turn it back
And then I’ve lost
My key on the way

I’ve been living for so long

Many seasons past me by
I’ve seen kingdoms through ages
Rise and fall
I’ve seen it all

I’ve seen the harbour
I’ve seen the wonders
Happening just in front of my eyes
Will I ever

Will I never free myself by breaking it right?

[Chorus]

Jillian
Our dream ended long ago
All our stories
And all our glories
I held so dear
We won’t be together for ever and ever

No more tears
I’ll always be here
‘Till the end

[Voices] Jillian

[Chorus]

Stand My Ground

I can see
When you stay low nothing happens
Does it feel right?

Late at night
Things I thought I put behind me
Haunt my mind

I just know there’s no escape

Now once it sets its eyes on you
But I wont run,
Have to stare it in the eye

[Chorus:]
Stand my ground, I wont give in
No more denying, I got to face it
Won’t close my eyes and hide the truth inside
If I don’t make it, someone else will

Stand my ground

It’s all around
Getting stronger, coming closer
Into my world

I can feel
That its time for me to face it
Can I take it?

Though this might just be the ending
Of the life I held so dear
But I won’t run,
There’s no turning back from here

[Chorus]

All I know for sure is I’m trying
I will always stand my ground

[Chorus]

^back to top

Pale

The world seems not the same
Though I know nothing has changed
It’s all my state of mind
I can’t leave it all behind

Have to stand up to be stronger

[Chorus:]
Have to try
To break free
From the thoughts in my mind
Use the time that I have
I can say goodbye
Have to make it right

Have to find
‘Cause I know in the end it’s worth while
That the pain that I feel slowly fades away
It will be all right

I know
I should realize
Time is precious
It is worth while

Despite how I feel inside
Have to trust it’ll be alright
Have to stand up to be stronger

[Chorus]

This night is too long
Have no strength to go on
No more pain I’m falling away

Through the mist see the face
Of an angel, calls my name
I remember you’re the reason I have to stay

[Chorus]

^back to top

Forsaken

Now the day has come

We are forsaken this time

We lived our lives
In our paradise
As Gods we shaped the world around
No borderlines
We stayed behind
No boundaries is something fragile

Well we thought we were gaining

We turned back the time
It still slips away
Our time has run out
Our future has died
There’s no more escape

[Chorus:]
Now the day has come
We are forsaken

There’s no time any more
Life will pass us by
We are forsaken
We’re the last of our kind

The sacrifice
Was much to hide
Our grief just made us all go on
We try to hide what we fear inside

Today is the end of tomorrow

As the sea started rise
And the land that we conquered
It just washed away
We all have tried
To turn back the time
It was all in vain

[Chorus:]

Now the day has come
We are forsaken this time

Now the day has come
We are forsaken
There’s no time any more

Now the day has come,
The day has come

Angels

Sparkling angel
I believe
You are my saviour
In my time of need

Blinded by faith

I couldn’t hear
All the whispers
They’re warning so clear

I see the angels
I’ll lead them to your door
There is no escape now
Now mercy no more

No remorse cause I still remember

The smile when you tore me apart

[Chorus:]
You took my heart
Deceived me right from the start
You showed me dreams
I wished they’d turn to real
You broke a promise
And made me realise

It was all just a lie

Sparkling angel
Couldn’t see
Your dark intensions
Your feelings for me

Fallen angel
Tell me why
What is the reason?

The thorn in your eye

I see the angels
I’ll lead them to your door
There is no escape now
No mercy no more

No remorse cause I still remember
The smile when you tore me apart

[Chorus]

Could have been forever
Now we have reached the end

This world may have failed you
It doesn’t give the reason why
You could have chosen
A different path of life

[Chorus:]
The smile when you tore me apart
You took my heart
Deceived me right from the start
You showed me dreams
I wished they’d turn in to real
You broke a promise
And made me realise
It was all just a lie

Could have been forever
Now we have reached the end

Memories

[Whisper] Memories, memories, memories

In this world you tried

Not leaving me alone behind
There’s no other way
I’ll pray to the gods: let him stay

The memories ease the pain inside
Now I know why

[Chorus:]
All of my memories
Keep you near

It’s all about us
Imagine you’d be here
All of my memories
Keep you near
The silent whispers
The silent tears

Made me promise I’d try
To find my way back in this life

I hope there is away
To give me a sign you’re okay
Reminds me again
It’s worth it all
So I can go home

[Chorus]

Together in all these memories
I see your smile

All the memories I hold dear
Darling you know I love you till the end of time

[Chorus]

^back to top

Aquarius

I hear your whispers
Break the silence

And it calms me down
Taste on my lips
Your salty kisses

They say I’m seeking up the danger
That one day you will let me go

[Chorus:]
I need you Aquarius
And try to learn

We’ll have to stay
I feel you Aquarius
Cause you don’t see,
Set me free
You call to me Aquarius

I relinquish
To your powers
From your grasp

I just can’t hide

Mr. Danger
I had to conquer
You made me feel alive

They say I have to be aware
That one day you will let me go

[Chorus]

I long for you Aquarius
I need to be with you again
I feel you Aquarius
My destiny ’till the end

[Chorus]

^back to top

It’s The Fear

It awaits for the day
Will let it out
Give it a reason
To give it it’s might

Fear of who I am becoming
I fear that I’m losing
The struggle within
I can no longer restrain it

My strength, it is fading
I have to give in

[Chorus:]
It’s the fear of the dark
It’s growing inside of me
They won they will hunt tonight
Have to save all the love
There is no escaping

Cause my faith is our doom

Hold down your head now
Just let me pass by
Don’t feed my fear
Don’t want it out

I fear for who I’m becoming
I feel that I’m losing
All beauty within

I can no longer restrain it
My strength it is fading
I have to give in

[Chorus]

Long ago he came to me
I’m ever since that day
Infected with it’s rage
For us to take

[Chorus]

^back to top

Somewhere

Lost in the darkness
Hoping for a sign
Instead there’s only silence
Can’t you hear my screams?

Never stop hoping
Until you know where you are
But one thing’s for sure
You’re always in my heart

[Chorus:]
I’ll find you somewhere
I’ll keep on trying
Until my dying day

I just need to know
Whatever has happened?
The truth will free my soul

Lost in the darkness
Tried to find your way home
I want to embrace you
And never let you go

Almost like you’re in heaven

So no one can hurt your soul
Living in agony
Cause I just did not know
Where you were

[Chorus]

Wherever you are
I won’t stop searching
Whatever it takes me to go

[Chorus]

Within Temptation – Mother Earth

Mother Earth

01. Mother Earth
02. Ice Queen
03. Our Farewell
04. Caged
05. The Promise
06. Never-ending Story
07. Deceiver of Fools
08. Dark Wings
09. In Perfect Harmony

Mother Earth

Birds and butterflies
Rivers and mountains she creates
But you’ll never know
The next move she’ll make
You can try
But it is useless to ask why
Cannot control her

She goes her own way

She rules until the end of time
She gives and she takes
She rules until the end of time
She goes her own way

With every breath
And all the choices that we make
We are only passing through on her way

I find my strength
Believing that your soul lives on
Until the end of time
I’ll carry it with me

Once you will know my dear
You don’t have to fear
A new beginning always starts at the end
Until the end of time

She goes her own way

^back to top

Ice Queen

When leaves have fallen
And skies turned into grey.
The night keeps on closing in on the day
A nightingale sings his song of farewell

You better hide for her freezing hell

On cold wings she’s coming
You better keep moving
For warmth, you’ll be longing
Come on just feel it
Don’t you see it?
You better believe it.

When she embraces

Your heart turns to stone
She comes at night when you are all alone
And when she whispers
Your blood shall run cold
You better hide before she finds you

Whenever she is raging
She takes all life away
Haven’t you seen?

Haven’t you seen?
The ruins of our world

She covers the earth with a breathtaking cloak
The sun awakes and melts it away
The world now opens its eyes and sees
The dawning of a new day

Whenever she is raging
She takes all life away

Haven’t you seen?
Haven’t you seen?
The ruins of our world

^back to top

Our Farewell

In my hands
A legacy of memories

I can hear you say my name
I can almost see your smile
Feel the warmth of your embrace
But there is nothing but silence now
Around the one I loved
Is this our farewell?

Sweet darling you worry too much, my child
See the sadness in your eyes

You are not alone in life
Although you might think that you are

Never thought
This day would come so soon
We had no time to say goodbye
How can the world just carry on?
I feel so lost when you are not by my side
But there’s nothing but silence now

Around the one I loved
Is this our farewell?

So sorry your world is tumbling down
I will watch you through these nights
Rest your head and go to sleep
Because my child, this not our farewell.
This is not our farewell.

Caged

These are the darkest clouds
To have surrounded me
Now I find my self alone caught in a cage
There’s no flower to be found in here
Not withering
Or pale to me
Everyone with a friendly face

Seems to hide some secret inside

He told me he loved me
While he laughed in my face
He just led me astray
He took my virtue
I feel so cold inside
Sorrow has frozen my mind

My heart is covered

With thoughts entangled
How could it ever have felt so real?
Is there a place more lonely than I feel within?
Could I have seen?
Could I have known?
I just took it as the truth
Everyone with a friendly face
Seems to hide some secret inside
Always there to remind me

To keep me from believing
That someone might be there
Who’ll free me and never ever leave me

^back to top

The Promise

On behalf of her love
She no longer sleeps

Life no longer had meaning
Nothing to make her stay
She sold her soul away

I held you tight to me
But you slipped away
You promised to return to me
And I believed, I believed

After the night he died

I wept my tears until they dried
But the pain stayed the same
I didn’t want him to die all in vain
I made a promise to revenge his soul in time
I’ll make them bleed at my feet

Sometimes I wonder
Could I have known their true intentions?
As the pain stayed the same

I’m going to haunt them down all the way
I made a promise to revenge his soul in time
One by one they were surprised

^back to top

Never-ending Story

Armies have conquered
And fallen in the end

Kingdoms have risen
Then buried by sand
The Earth is our mother
She gives and she takes
She puts us to sleep and
In her light we’ll awake
We’ll all be forgotten
There’s no endless fame
But everything we do

Is never in vain

We’re part of a story, part of a tale
We’re all on this journey
No one is to stay
Where ever it’s going
What is the way?

Forests and deserts
Rivers, blue seas

Mountains and valleys
Nothing here stays
While we think we witness
We are part of the scene
This never-ending story
Where will it lead to?
The earth is our mother
She gives and she takes
But she is also a part

A part of the tale

We’re part of a story, part of a tale
We’re all on this journey
No one is to stay
Where ever it’s going
What is the way?
We’re part of a story, part of a tale
Sometimes beautiful and sometimes insane

No one remembers how it began.

^back to top

Deceiver of Fools

He told the tale so many times
About the dream not meant to be
In a world of the free
He plays with your mind

As faith for the future faded fast
He grows strong with their displeasure
It sets him free

Deceiver of hearts
Deceiver of fools
He rules with fear
Deceiver of hearts
Deceiver of fools

He rules again

He feeds on fear
Poisons the truth
To gain their faith
To lead the way
To a world of decay

He rules your heart
He will sell your soul to the grave

No hesitation he’ll make
He belongs to the dark

Please awake
And see the truth
He can only be
If you believe what he tells you
Remember who you are
What you stand for

And there will always be a way

In my heart there is a place
In my heart there is a trace
Of a small fire burning
A sheltering ray shines through this night
Although it ‘s small, it’s bright
But darkness is lurking

He will sell your soul to bitterness and cold

Fear him

Deceiver of hearts
Deceiver of fools
He rules with fear
Deceiver of hearts
Deceiver of fools
Shall he rule again?

^back to top

Dark Wings

Why was I one of the chosen ones?
Until the fight I could not see
The magic and the strength of my power
It was beyond my wildest dreams

Dark wings they are descending
See shadows gathering around

One by one they are falling
Every time they try to strike us down

Don’t you die on me
You haven’t made your peace
Live life, breathe, breathe
Don’t you die on me
You haven’t made your peace
Live life, breathe, breathe

As they took your soul away
The night turned into the day
Blinded by your rays of life
Give us the strength we needed

^back to top

In Perfect Harmony

In a world so far away

At the end of a closing day
A little child was born and raised
Deep in the forest on a hidden place
Mother never saw his face

Ancient spirits of the forest
Made him king of elves and trees
He was the only human being
Who lived in harmony

In perfect harmony

The woods protected, fulfillled his needs

Fruit by birds, honey by bees

He found shelter under trees
He grew up in their company
They became his family

A thousand seasons

They passed him by
So many times, have said goodbye
And when the spirits called out his name
To join forever, forever to stay
A forest spirit he became

Work in progress... not home!
Trying to get all/most of the new code working before I start on the eyecandy.
