April Rain tracks

Lyrics

1. APRIL RAIN

How does it feel when all
You're counting on is scatterbrained
Every wind that you have sailed upon, a hurricane
Every summer you have seen was filled with april rain
It doesn't get easy, don't you know…

Fortune smiles on you
When you're not watching,
Dig that hole deeper
Fortune smiles on you
You're not watching,
Create your own faith

Count your blessings and prepare
To change your point of view
All the days that you spent waiting won't come back to you
Take off the glasses that have shaded
Your world black and grey
Does it get easy? Don't you know...

Fortune smiles on you
When you're not watching,
Dig that hole deeper
Fortune smiles on you
But you're not watching so,
Create your own faith

It keeps raining, ‘cause we are blind,
It keeps raining, ‘cause we are tired,
It keeps raining, 'cause we are blind
to Fortunes' kindness

Fortune smiles on you
When you're not watching,
Dig that hole deeper
Fortune smiles on you
But you're not watching so,
Create your own faith




2. STAY FOREVER

Silence in the living room
Hours feel like days
Silence when I speak to you
Your thoughts seem miles away
My euphoria, Oh yes you're worth the price
Because when my mind gets clouded I forget about our fights

Stay forever is never again
Our words have been spoken
It will come to an end
Stay forever is never again
Our words left unspoken
This will come to an end

Artificial energy
Running through my veins
Chemical the love I feel
For those without names
My euphoria, Oh yes, you're worth the price
Because when my mind gets clouded I forget about our fights

Stay forever is never again
Our words have been spoken
It will come to an end
Stay forever is never again
Our words left unspoken
This will come to an end

This empty house is not a home
Find the strength to stand alone
Without your armor
Flesh and blood have turned to stone
Find the will to stand alone
Too late to turn away




3. INVIDIA

My achievements seem so humble
While you're making wine from water
While my hands work the cold soil
All you touch turn into gold
And I don't want to be like you

I don't want be like you
It seems like you outrun me every time
I want to be you
Why can't I erase you from my mind
I don't want be like you
It seems like you outrun me every time
I want to be you
Why can't I erase you from my mind

All the heroes in the gutter
Finally get their ever after
As they lay their final glance
Upon your ever shining armor
And I don't want to be like you

Looking from a distance,
the difference seems so small
Has the grass been greener on the other side at all?

I don't want be like you
It seems like you outrun me every time
I want to be you
Why can't I erase you from my mind
I don't want be like you
It seems like you outrun me every time
I want to be you
Why can't I erase you from my mind




4. CONTROL THE STORM

I can feel it grow
Starting like a little storm
Itching in my toes
But its will to take over
Ain't quite that small
I can feel it grow
I can hear it moan
I can hear its bitter cries
In my veins it crawls
Underneath my tongue it hides
I'm in control

An error in my genesis
The reason I started this
Where did we go wrong?

Don't you know
In the end you're not stronger of hand
You are no stronger of heart
Don't you know
In the end, we'll be tragically torn apart
If we can't control the storm

Does it get to you?
Fury in your fingertips
Does it get you too?
Turning hands to an angry fists
In ragefull bliss
Oh does it get to you?
Crying all your lullabies
Do you lick your wounds?
Wondering how we could try to stop this useless fight

An error in my genesis
The reason I started this
Where did we go wrong?

Don't you know
In the end you're not stronger of hand
You are no stronger of heart
Don't you know
In the end, we'll be tragically torn apart
If we can't control the storm




5. ON THE OTHER SIDE

Will you wait ?
I'm on the other side
Will you wait ?
I'm on the other side
It's too late to tell you
What I'm about
But God, I'm proud

A giant in the sky
A light flooded horizon
A silent peacefull cry
And the sun that is rising
Warms me up
Warms me up
Wears me out

Will you wait ?
I'm on the other side
Will you wait ?
I'm on the other side
It's too late too tell you
What I'm about
But God, I'm proud
God, I'm proud…

A different kind of quiet
A different kind of warning
You've said your last goodbyes
And left your daughters mourning
Breathing in
Breathing in
Breathing out




6. VIRTUE AND VICE

Heaven denied us its kingdom
Tell me where we've gone wrong
Oh, Fortitude. I'd be like you
But I only speak when spoken to
Heaven forgive, the mess I'm in
Temperance, why do I cast
Your prudence to the wind ?

Whatever the prophecy
Let it be, let it be
We'll live all there is to live
Be it pleasure,
Be it sorrow
Whatever prosperity
Lies in me, lies in me
I'll be all that I can be
My forever starts tomorrow

I am a nightmare hunting you
I steal away your sleep
A poison running through your veins
A wound, that always bleeds

Call it love, call it lust
Luxuria, my enemy,
You get the best of me

Whatever the prophecy
Let it be, let it be
We'll live all there is to live
Be it pleasure,
Be it sorrow
Whatever prosperity
Lies in me, lies in me
I'll be all that I can be
My forever starts tomorrow




7. GO AWAY

Understand, you'll never be
What they expect;
It's out of reach
You're not the kind
To reach that high
It's nothing like you had in mind

Another act
Another show you play
Realize, it will not make your problems go away
You cannot act your way out daily demise
Get real today
To hell, just go away

Understand, the road ahead
Is full of gaps
Gets harder yet
You're not the kind
To lead us blind
It's nothing like you had in mind

Another act
Another show you play
Realize, it will not make your problems go away
You cannot act your way out daily demise
Get real today
To hell, just go away




8. START SWIMMING

I'm waiting for another day
I'm waiting for the clock to reach the six and twelve
I'm waiting for a holiday

I'm waiting for myself
And all I seem to hear is:
Stop, I'm catching up on you
Don't leave me behind
I can't see a soul out there,
It's dark. I'm catching up on you
And all I wonder is Why?
Why do I try to keep running
What am I running for?

Do you remember why we started running?
Do you remember why we're running at all?
If I dared I'd choose to swim
But it's safer on the shore
Do you remember why we started running?
Do you remember why we're running at all?
I would die to get away
But I fear to even more

I'm waiting for another day
The last one was so desperately disappointing
I can't even focus on what I've done
Or where I've been
I can't see
Nobody here
I would rather stay here the rest of my life
Than close my eyes
I would rather stay here the rest of my life
Than close my eyes and start swimming
Close my eyes and start swimming




9. LOST

It seems we have Lost
Throw down your arrows
It won't cause flaming hearts
It seems we have Lost
We keep on running in different directions

Never again
The way you're turning all my wrongs to right
Never again
This one you can't deny
Never again
I wanted to reveal a softer side
Never again
Forgive me if I tried to do what's right

I was only holding on
To everything we had so far
Thought I was ready
To let go, but I'm not
Now it seems, yes now it seems

It seems we have Lost
Throw down your arrows
It won't cause flaming hearts
It seems we have Lost
Forget about your pride
Forget everything
Everything you're taught




10. I'LL REACH YOU

Remember when you walked into the rain
The railroad and the sky where calling your name
Can you hear them whisper:
« Come and get lost with us »
You've been chasing shadows in your hometown
You searched for answers that refused ever to be found
So you compromised and found a new horizon
Ever since you left you're always on my mind

So here's to you if you care to listen
Here's to you let me cross the distance
Even if you're not here
I'll reach you, I'll reach you
Even though you're away, I'm near
We'll forgive and forget
I'll reach you

Seven years and seven days you've been gone
Seven years of changing faith and opinion
Would you recognize me
If you walked beside me
I would keep on waiting
It's been too long




11. NOTHING LEFT

Nothing left to make you feel high
Nothing left to turn you on
Laughing in your childish disguise
You rule the night

Follow me back home
But the night is young
And I'm tired of being alone
Follow me back home
Give me just one more
To send shivers
To the bone

Nothing left, the magic is gone
Pallor face in morning light
Someone close the curtains
Oh how it hurts your eyes

Follow me back home
But the night is young
And I'm tired of being alone
Follow me back home
Give me just one more
To send shivers
To the bone

Nothing left
It's time to leave
Can you make it on your own?
Nothing left
It's time to breathe
Can you follow me back home?

Nothing left to make you feel high
Nothing left to turn you on
Dwelling in your dreams every day
Disturbs your nights




12. COME CLOSER

I want to lay my head down
Come closer, come closer
What's that uncomfortable sound
Of your key in the door – I hear you walking out
Walking out again
Why didn't you stay for a while
To say goodbye, my friend
My friend

I want to lay my head down
Come closer, come closer
I thought you'd turn to me,
But you were turning around
I think I'm losing you
Losing you again
Why didn't you stay for a while
To say goodbye, my friend

Winter shadow cools you
White before your eyes
Summer shadow soothes
Nothing on your mind
Winter shadow cools you
White before your eyes
Summer shadow suites you
Tonight

I want to lay my head down
Come closer, come closer
Trying not to remember
Our most precious of times
Remember winters cold
And summers by my side
Please tell me I do leave
A void of any kind
