L'Âme Immortelle

Dann Habe Ich Umsonst Gelebt tracks

Lyrics

1. ERINNERUNG

(Instrumental)




2. JUDGEMENT

Standing still here for a moment
Breath held tightly in my body
A world that's growing darker
Not worth a longer stay

All the wisdom that I earned
Can't make a change to this state
As I lay down my spirit's arms
On my knees to seal my fate

I cast my hopes into the waters
Awaiting judgement from the sea
And someday the tide will rise
Up so high to swallow me

Collapsing pride and fading joy
Are marking my capitulation
To a world that cries in pain
And slowly dies in misery

Come the demons of my soul
To carry my sane mind away
I'm just a noble soul of honour
Who has left its way

Cast my thoughts into the water
Awaiting judgement from the sea
And someday the tide will rise
Up so high to swallow me




3. EPITAPH

Too many souls just fade away
And leave nothing behind
Too many live just for the day
And let their time pass by

Too many graves stay nameless
In the garden of the dead
Too many pictures frameless
Blurred lost memories

Do not search this place for me
Search for me deep in your heart
If I haven't built my memorial there
My life has been in vain

So I must not fear the time
When the reaper shows its face
My memorial will shine
Brighter than the sun

Let come the night, the final day
To retreat forever
My soul will sweep away
And will not be forgotten

Do not search this place for me
Search for me deep in your heart
If I haven't built my memorial there
My life has been in vain




4. REARRANGING

(Instrumental)




5. SLUT

Misled children
Tortured souls
Masochistic need
A bell tolls

For those who feel
Nothing inside
No love, no hate
No stars shine bright

Raped by life
They give their pride
And will end up
With no one at their side

You´re just a slut with no honour and no pride
You´re just a slut, and it is time for you to finally confide
You are a slut you are alone,
You will die here on your own
You are a slut you ran astray
and you´ve thrown your life away

Loneliness your destination
No helping hand and no salvation
For those who do not know
The meaning of feelings

I turn away
And you don´t care
There´ll be another one waiting
In the city square




6. UMSONST GELEBT ?

(Instrumental)




7. LICHT UND SCHATTEN

Licht: Du sahst so viele Wunder hier
Erfuhrst Liebe und auch Zärtlichkeit
Noch soviel legt das Leben offen Dir
Noch soviel Schönes, so viel Zeit

Ich stieg empor zum höchsten Thron
Ich fiel auch in die tiefste Nacht
Doch nichts erstickt die Wunder
Die die Liebe hat vollbracht

Schatten: Grausam das Schicksal, das dir bestimmt
Tod und Leiden waren deine Begleiter
Nur noch mehr Schmerz die Zeit sich nimmt
Es ist vorbei, geh nicht mehr weiter

Ich stieg empor zum höchsten Thron
Ich fiel auch in die tiefste Nacht
Doch nichts erstickt die Wunder
Die die Liebe hat vollbracht

Licht: Das Leben ist ein Wechselspiel
Wie es auch der Tag, die Nacht
Nach jedem Mord, nach jedem Plein
Werden Wunder dann vollbracht

Schatten: Leben ist ein Wechselspiel
Wie es auch der Tag, die Nacht
Doch dein Leiden währet ewig
Der Tod erhört dann deine Klag´

Ich stieg empor zum höchsten Thron
Ich fiel auch in die tiefste Nacht
Doch nichts erstickt die Wunder
Die die Liebe hat vollbracht

Egal ob lebendig oder Tod
Sie ist immer hier bei mir
Und wenn die ganze Welt auch leidet
Leben wir, lieben wir
[für immderdar]




8. VOICELESS

I watch the stars collapse at night
When demons haunt me once again
In the sky their death shines bright
Every loss brings a new gain

The peace of voiceless darkness
Silence voices who scream at me
And through the gentle nighttime
I gain the knowledge that I'm free

When you're in your darkest hours
Seek the embrace of the night
Open up to all its powers
I'll show you what's behind the light

We're blinded by the brightest shining
And see not what's behind
So we watch our own declining
Life, that made us far too blind

We will not see the pleasures offered
When they're not obvious to see
Beauty's just what they will look at
Close the door and drop the key

When you're in your darkest hours
Seek the embrace of the night
Open up to all its powers
I'll show you what's behind the light




9. WAS HALT MICH NOCH HIER

Langsam rinnt mein Leben
Wie der Sand durch meine Hände
Umsonst scheint all mein Streben
Verloren in der Ewigkeit

Doch nur weil ich meinen Traum
Zu oft in fremde Hände legte
Doch ändern kann ich es kaum
Denn jetzt ist es zu spät

Was hält mich noch hier
An diesem Ort der Dunkelheit?
Nur das Licht das deine Liebe
Mir scheinen läßt in Ewigkeit

Mein Schicksal welches fremdbestimmt
Verflüchtigt sich, und langsam weiter
Es ohne Halt zu Boden rinnt
Um dort unterzugehen

Nur ein Ziel das ich erreicht
Rechtfertigt all, das was geschehen
Die Liebe die nichts andrem gleicht
Hilft mir hier zu bestehen




10. FORGIVE ME

All the dreams that I have had
They lie shattered on the floor
But I found what I was searching
I've never wanted more

I am forced to leave this life behind
Your remaind behind the door
But our love stays in my heart
I've never wanted more
I've never wanted more

Please forgive me, but I have to leave
Stand up proud and show no grief
In this hour, I will pray
That we'll be joined again some day
Our love is stronger than the sun
And will still shine, when I am gone
I'm so afraid to cross this line
Please hold me for one last time

The marks I left, the deeds I've done
Will remind the world of me
Some hearts will bear my memory
I've never wanted more

Also these lines shall shine up high
To show the people who I've been
A loving man of pride and passion
I've never wanted more
I've never wanted more

Please forgive me, but I have to leave
Stand up proud and show no grief
In this hour, I will pray
That we'll be joined again some day
Our love is stronger than the sun
And will still shine, when I am gone
I'm so afraid to cross this line
Please hold me for one last time

Forgive me
Forgive me
Forgive me
Forgive me
Forgive me
Forgive me
Please forgive me

Please forgive me, but I have to leave
Stand up proud and show no grief
In this hour, I will pray
That we'll be joined again some day
Our love is stronger than the sun
And will still shine, when I am gone
I'm so afraid to cross this line
Please hold me for one last time




11. LEAVING

Unfold your heart and let me see
The pain you bear, because of me
I'm innocent but broke your heart
Destroyed your dreams, ripped them apart

Ask gods above, and gods below
To tell you why I have to go
Have I deserved this punishment
Please guide me to understand

Ask gods above, and gods below
Why my life will stop its flow
The gods deserved this punishment
To guide you to understand

Ask gods above, and gods below
To tell you why I have to go
Have I deserved this punishment
Please guide me to understand

Ask gods above, and gods below
Why my life will stop its flow
The gods deserved this punishment
To guide you to understand

Unfold your heart and let me see
The pain you bear, because of me
I'm innocent but broke your heart
Destroyed your dreams, ripped them away




12. DEAD ACTOR'S REQUIEM

It's time to leave the stage
In this theatre of pain
To let go of all the rage
When all scenes have been played

The final act concluded
The curtain falls for one last time
And outside the crowed still cheers
There'll be no encore this time

Weep away all your tears my friend
We will meet again someday
But this time, there'll be an end
To this play I called my life

Leaving the stage, smash the mask
An actor dead, a human being
On the ground, a final gasp
The doors are opened wide

The air perforated by the rain
Outside is conquered silently
By a soul who's free of pain
The actor left the stage




13. LIFE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN

On snow covered mountains
My soul lies to sleep
Silent crying inside
My pain is so deep

Counting the days
As time passes by
Thinking of past times
I break down and cry

Life will never be the same again

Counting timeless tears
Which I spillt for you
You are my obsession
I don't know where you're gone to
I dream a dream of Hope
Under Moonlight stars
Tortured by reality
Which has left it's scars

Life will never be the same again

In a World without feelings
My dreams are all dead
No one beside me
I know where I am at

Embracing the Silence
In my loneliness
Trying not to fear
All the things I posses

Life will never be the same again
