Will My Soul Ever Rest in Peace?
I've been searching for an oasis
In the desert for so long
To pretend I'm strong
In my weakness trying

I've been holding on
To things that I have left behind
I've been scared and lonely
I'm crippled inside

Bathing my soul in the starlight
Healed my wounds in the sun
Screamed my pain to the forest
Asking the Question why?

Will the come a time for me when I find peace of mind
Will I always have this feeling like I'm last in the line
I will climb up a mountain and light up a candle and ask:
"Will my soul ever rest in peace"

I've been washed in pain
Haunted by ghosts of years ago
They won't leave me be
They keep coming back for more

Chorus

My crippled soul is yearning to be free
 
 
Falling into Fantasy
I'm sitting by the calm lake
And watch the setting sun
My feet are in the water
The journey's just begun

In the mist there is a boat and it's heading towards me
On the desk the lady's holding her hand and I agree

I'm falling into fantasy
The dream goes on

We are travelling in the nightfall
Until we stop somewhere
Descending into water
On dark and hazy stairs

Now she's leading me to the golden palace that lays ahead
She tells me I'm the one in her dreams and on her bed

I'm falling into fantasy
The dream goes on
I'm falling into fantasy
Drifting along
 
 
The Curtains Are Falling
I'm back in the air, but I've nowhere to go
I nervously glance at the mountains below
Two hours of sleep, seven more 'til the show
I prey to the goddess of coffee to keep me alive

The crew's getting wasted, we're back in the sky
I join in the fray, 'coz the rules don't apply
"Who cares anyway - when we're all gonna fry!"
But somehow we manage to land and we all have survived...

And the curtains are falling, and the legions are calling tonight
And the curtains are falling, and the legions are calling tonight

Have to fly away, though I'd rather stay
That's the price you pay, that's the game we play

When roaring to life the engines are loud
The memories of you and the sound of the crowd
They're fading away as we break through the clouds
But I don't complain when we're back on the ground and alive...
 
 
Requiem
(Instrumental)
 
 
Bloodstone
(by Judas Priest)
I've been trying
There's no denying.
It's sending me
Out of my mind.
I've seen reason
Change to treason.
It's losing its sense
Of all kind.
How much longer will it take
For the world to see.
We should learn to live
And simply let it be.

Bloodstone, bloodstone.

In the night time
Wake in fright.
I'm so scared of the game
That's being played.
Start to wonder
What's going under
And how many deals
Have been made

Bloodstone.
I can't take it.
You got me living
On a bloodstone
I don't want that bloodstone.
 
 
Kill the King
(by Rainbow)
Danger, danger the Queen's about to kill
There's a stranger, stranger and life about to spill
Oh no move me out of harm
I need a spell and a charm
Fly like the wind
I'm no pawn, so be gone, speed on and on
Kill the King
Tear him down

Kill the King
Strike him down

Power, power it happens every day
Power, devour all a long the way
Oh no move me out of harm
I need a spell and a charm
Fly like the wind
I'm no pawn, so be gone, speed on and on
Kill the King

Treason, treason, the spectre looms again
Treason, reason, the realm is safe and then
Oh no move away from harm
I need a spell and a charm
Fly like the rainbow
I'm no pawn, so be gone, speed on and on

Kill the King
Tear him down
Kill the King
Got to take him crown

Kill the King
He'll role no more
Strike him dead
The people roar
Kill the King
Take his dead
Down, down, down, down
Oh, kill, oh, kill, oh, oh
 
 
I Surrender
(by Russ Ballard. Live)
I surrender to your heart babe
Do anything that you want me to do
Please be tender I'm in your hands girl
This is a feeling I never knew
You know I tried to make it on my own
That's not the way it was meant to be
Spend my time waiting by the phone
Oh darling come back to me

I surrender, I surrender
I'm giving up the role of pretender
Oh be tender, girl be tender
Can't you feel the love that I send you
I surrender

I remember, seems like a lifetime
Can't believe it's a matter of days
Since you left me I'm near to heartbreak
I want you so bad don't turn away
What does it take to stay by my side
You know I'll do what you want me to
Don't take away this feeling inside
I'm still in love with you

I surrender, I surrender
I'm giving up the role of pretender
I remember, I remember
Can't you feel the love that I send you
I surrender

I surrender, I surrender
Darling now won't you be tender
Surrender, oh surrender
Feel the love that I send you
I surrender
 
 
Keep the Flame
The shadow falls on me today
Why can't it fade into the distance

And darkness falls, no other way
I rage at the riddle of existence

The day's almost gone but you'll carry on
Can you keep the flame for me
The day's almost gone but you'll carry on
Can you keep the flame for me

A broken plan, a feeling past
How do we always keep on trying

A tired man is free at last
What would the purpose be of lying

My life's almost gone but you'll carry on
Can you keep the flame for me
My life's almost gone but you'll carry on
Can you keep the flame for me
Will you keep the flame for me
 
 
Why Are We Here?
When the stars are gone forever and planets are turned into dust
It's good escape to lie in the haze
In the past I found the answer in the music and drinking and lust
Waiting for the end and counting the days

But I want to find an answer, so what if my terror dies
And I want to find an answer, I look in your eyes

Why we are here
Maybe you hold the answer

When the skies are dark and winter has hidden the city in snow
I remember summer's hot far away
And it seems the days are shorter and hours are passing to slow
It's a nice escape to roll in the hay
 
 
What Can I Say
Sometimes it's not that easy finding all the words
For how I feel when you are near
The more we are together makes me realize
All I ever wanted is you

What can I say?
You make all my dreams come true
And every day I want you right here by my side
To take my hand and hold me tight
I never want to be alone again

Oh my love

The days are shorter now
I'm reaching for some light
And I find it in your eyes
Brighter than the sun it filled me up with love
Don't ever close them for me

What can I say?
You make all my dreams come true
And every day I want you right here by my side
To take my hand and hold me tight
I never want to be alone again

Oh my love

Yes I know baby
It takes a world to keep what we have
And not let go
I was lonely
Before I met you
But you wiped away all the sorrow

What can I say?
You make all my dreams come true
And every day I want you right here by my side
To take my hand and hold me tight
I never want to be alone again

What can I say?
You make all my dreams come true
And every day I want you right here by my side
To take my hand and hold me tight
I never want to be alone again

Oh my love
 
 
Dream with Me
Now it is time for you to close ypur eyes
They've seen much pain it's slowly filling your mind
Pretty as they are but now so pale
You better leave all your worries far behind

Now long ago when you had the Fire
Burning inside of you brighter than any flame
You were the one that I believed in
Keepeng our hopes up high where are you now?
Where do you aim?

Let me take you there
To the place you know
Why don't you Dream With Me
The answers will be found

No it is time to open your eyes again
See how all the sorrows have disappeared faded away
I am right here waiting for your call
If you still need me to guide your pace
Through the day

Let me take...
 
 
When the Night Meets the Day
Look around there's no time to waste
Life goes on nothing's gonna change
Feel the winds of life blowing cold
It won't take so long you are growing old
There is no answer to be found
It is so easy to fall without a sound

Days of loving and gold
Kept me from feeling so old
Times I'll always recall
When the night meets the day
Gates of heaven I saw
While flying through the misty dawn
Those days I'll always recall
When the night meets the day

I don't wanna let you out of my sight
But here I'm lost and alone in the night
 
 
It's a Mystery
In the middle of the jungle
There are ruins of temples build along ago
Stone by stone
They were made by the Mayas
A tribe that is not so well known
Each pictures on the wall
Recorded history
They were gazing at the sky
Seeing stars telling them the days
On the year
Monuments marked time
But altars meant death and fear
Worshipping gods now gone long time ago
The population grew new cities were found

What happened then?
Was it a strange decease that wired away almost everyone
These things died right the way almost everyone
Or it might have been starvation caused by drought and a scorching sun

It's a mystery
The way they disappeared
It's now history
We will newer know
 
 
Cold Winter Nights
Summer's gone a while ago
The daylight dims away
I'm watching here how the snow begins to fall
Yesterday's like a dream
A memory in my head
Like the life's gone behind the winter wall

I'm lighting up the candles and lock the door
Sitting by the fire
It's time to dream some more

I have to find a way how to survive
I am surrounded by the starlight
I have to find the path
and to escape from the Cold Winter Nights

And in the morning there's no trace of the sun
Just gray fog hanging above my head
All the birds are quiet hiding in the woods
Can't see no movement are they all dead?
 
 
Hunting High And Low
(live)
I feel the wind in my hair,
And it's whispering, telling me things,
Of the storm that is gathering near
Full of power I'm spreading my wings

Now I'm leaving my worries behind
Feel the freedom of body and mind
I have started my journey, I'm drifting away with the wind
I go

I am Hunting High and Low
Diving from the sky above
Looking for, more and more, once again
I'm Hunting High and Low
Sometimes I may win sometimes I'll lose
It's just a game that I play

After the storm there's a calm
through the clouds shines a ray of the sun
I am carried from all of my harm
There is no-one that I can't outrun

Now I'm leaving my worries behind
Feel the freedom of body and mind
I have started my journey, I'm drifting away with the wind
I fly
 
 
Blackout
(by The Scorpions)
I realize I missed a day
But I'm too wrecked to care anyway
I look around and see this face
What the hell have I lost my taste
Don't want to find out
Just want to cut out
My head explodes, my ears ring
I can't remember just where I've been
The last thing that I recall
I got lost in a deep black hole

Don't want to find out
Just want to cut out
Blackout
I really had a Blackout

I grab my things and make run
On my way out, another one
Would like to know before I stop
Did I make it, or did I flop
