Lyrics

1. LUCERO

In front of me
Her hair flies as the wind blows
Like a cool breeze
I sense her silhouette as she goes
She walks right past me
As my passion grows

I hear her walk by
Almost driving my soul mad
A scream I hold inside
As a lump grows in my throat
Of all the things I could say
I make no sound

From the darkness it grows
Blinding me like a bright light
Reaching out for my love
Touching me on this cold night
She'll never know how I feel
I'll never know if she is for real
She'll never hear my lament cry
That's screaming deep inside of me

I dream of her face
Don't know how to describe her
I'm leaving this place
Tonight will be my last call
To hear her tender voice
Just one more night




2. ONE HUNDRED TIMES

When I succeed, I'm thinking of you
You could have stayed and seen this thing through
Where the wind blows, where it takes you
You don't care because you've no clue
I admit I trusted in you
I admit I got so screwed by you
Here I stand unshaken and
I don't mind this price I must pay to survive

Bring it on... Bring it on...

One hundred times fallen
One hundred times risen again
I fight with all I am
Never looking back
One hundred times faltered
One hundred times stronger am I
I look into the mirror
No one's by my side

I'd like to see you walk in my shoes
To teach the lesson and not to amuse
Now regret is your only friend
It is you who lose in the end
Take a look at all of my wounds
See how they healed this season anew
I still stand unshaken and
I don't mind this price I must pay to survive




3. COME TO MY ARMS

Closing my eyes you were always there
Stared back at me like a mirror
If no-one's here to show you the way
Will you walk in that line
That leads you astray?

Before you were born I faced the choice
Existence only a dream
My gift to you, this dream of life

The day you were born I saw joy in your face
With virtue and faith to grow strong
Of all the things I could give in this world
To help you survive, to keep you alive

Do you believe in destiny?
What makes you think you're the doer of your actions
The Good, The Evil... what a quandary

Come to my arms and shed no tears
Trust in me little one
Let me be your guide
And in life you will learn to fly

It's like a mirror so much left to be had
Your innocence soon will be tested
Looking ahead, seeing the lead this life so new
The stars wait for you
As you grow you'll be tempted to stray
Your conscience pushed to the limit
Trust in the voice you know to be true

My poor little thing
Don't fear, you're not so innocent, or are you?
Don't doubt. The doubts will make you feel worse

Come to my arms and shed no tears
Trust in me little one
I will be your guide
And in life you will learn to fly

Now you sleep well, little boy don't cry
In the morning a new light will shine
I'll erase your fear forever
And the darkness will dissappear
Little boy don't cry, little boy don't cry

In the eyes of God you are all the same
Some possess the good, others all the pain

Come to my arms and shed no tears
Trust in me little one (trust in me, I'm your guide)
I will be your guide
Come to my arms and shed no tears
Trust in me little one (trust in me, I'm your guide)
I will be your guide
And in life you will learn to fly

Show me your other cheek,
I would like to see it
He likes that, it makes him feel good
It's all the same to me
I think you're one of mine
He got rid of you
I will give you shelter
I'll ask you no questions
I won't even doubt you
I know what you're like, and you're not bad
There's no difference between good and evil
And if there is, it's too late for you




4. NO MORE DAMAGE

No passion in his perfect smile
High ratings make salaries start to grow
Face of glass under bright light
Preying on weak minds
The lies he tells
There's no power in them
If you don't listen to the man
You'll never know what's in my head
Or in my soul - it's their goal
You lost your chance, it's not coming back
Just go away and don't come back
Save your fears and lies
All your damage, no more damage

When I look back I don't understand
Their obsession to deceive so many people
There's no power in them
If you don't listen to the man

People listened to your words
And you thought you could tell one more lie
All we needed was the truth
For peace of mind

You'll never know what's in my head...

No more damage, no




5. DAWN

Maybe this time
You will understand
The reason I wrote for you this song
I need to sing it out now
My heart isn't made of stone
It has not forgotten
Still thinks of thee
Speaks to me all the time
It tells me of the days gone by
Living in this world with your love
And cries for that great loss
Please hear its call
Saying that I need you
Hoping you feel as I do
A smile from you would send me to heaven
To the kingdom of your love
And we could be together
And all of this sadness will be gone

Once I broke the ice surrounding you
And my voice reached your heart and soul
Spoke to them hidden in a song
And then my soul was burned by your fire so tender
Heat of your love... then everything was gone
Just ashes of what was
Reminding me who I am
Just another dreamer
Only a fool in the shadow of your smile
Who lives and cries hidden inside
And for your love, I would give away my soul
Hear how I sing your song
Abandoned on a lost road
Can't you see I still love you?




6. Old Fortress

Bitter darkness all around
Laughing at my loneliness
I can see through these grey bars
And the light is fading out
From far away voices call me
Reminding me of the life I once had
And again, I have to face my plight
Make me strong on this lonely night

Between the sea and the sky
I can find hope and still see the light
Echoes of the life that I did have
My hope springs eternal and will not die
These dreams refuse to fade to black
Alone in my solitude
A prisoner of lies

Innocent? No one cares
Yet again, the truth ignored
Does it matter? Should I care?
What is not, what is not fair?
From far away voices call me
Reminding me of my former life
Dry the tears that wash you from my mind
And regain what was once mine

Between the sea and the sky
I can find hope and still see the light
Echoes of the life that I did have
My hope springs eternal and will not die
These dreams refuse to fade to black
Alone in my solitude
Between two lives

Who's there? Jailer with no face
Who's there? Free me from this place
What am I? Am I still a man?
Dear God hear my plea
Set me free from this lie

Between the sea and the sky
I can find hope and still see the light
Echoes of the life that I did have
My hope springs eternal and will not die
These dreams refuse to fade to black
Alone in my solitude
Between two lives

Between the sea and the sky
I can find hope and still see the light
Echoes of the life that I did have
My hope springs eternal and will not die
These dreams refuse to fade to black
Alone in my solitude
Prisoner of lies




7. HEAVEN AND EARTH

The coldest winter has begun
And it's coming for me
This lifeless place I have been sent to
It is all new to me
I can feel it starting to freeze
I know this never have been
And nothing could stop it
Strong as the wind blows
I'm a shadow beneath this cloud
Can not remember where I came from
I'm screaming out loud cause it scares
The hell out of me
And it's so far to fall

Long I have fought just to get here
But now you're so far in that grey hole
Shouldn't be free
Don't want to forget but it's late
Cause now I am here
Where heaven and earth cry
Where heaven and earth cry

Look for the days that I look back on my innocence
My sight was blinded by the same lie
Anything's better than this
My fragile happiness died
It's gone and not coming back
To pick up what little remains of me
From this bad nightmare
I dream that I wake up
My tears are dry, silence echoes
Will this final rhyme
Forget me after a time
Between heaven and hell




8. JUST ONE MORE SONG

Oh Lord of this grey world
Bring colour to my life
Inspire me in my song
With all that's good to make me strong
Oh Lord of this grey world
Give me one more day to heal
Turn my tears to a river of notes
Into an ocean of melodies

Oh Lord of this grey world
The sun hides its light from me
A darkness blacker than blackest night
Leaves me blinded with no insight

Have the poets all left us?
Words written, forgotten and no one cares
Have the poets all left us?
Like dead roses in gardens of sadness
Their petals fall like the tears I cried for thee
Have the poets all left us?
Will anyone mourn this loss with me
Have the poets all left us?
On their tomb is a secret in stone,
it's a poem of love
That no one recalls... no one recalls

Oh Lord of this grey world
Have you gone too? Why do you hide?
Send my spirit into the night
And set this song into flight

In this age that lacks of grace
Where poets die and leave no trace
Do I toil this night long
All for a rhyme, all for a song?

Tell me why
I can't free the melody inside of me
Tell me why
I can't find the muse for just one more song...

Have the poets all left us?
Words written, forgotten and no one cares
Have the poets all left us?
Like dead roses in gardens of sadness
Their petals fall like the tears I cried for thee
Have the poets all left us?
Will anyone mourn this loss with me
Have the poets all left us?
On their tomb is a secret in stone,
it's a poem of love
That no one recalls...




9. MOTHER EARTH

Suffering she bears, yet tender remains
Soul of woman, with wisdom and grace
Willow tree that weeps, sad but not unloved
Cruelest winds of age, working their worst where she stands
So much baggage, so much guilt and the past seems so distant
I forgot how selfless you brought me life
And into your world
And of all the things I could sing of, cannot express what's inside of me
The heart of your son is not so cold
It's never forgotten your love

Hold on mother earth
Now it's my turn to tend to your needs
Now I comprehend
All the things I hold dear, you gave to me
Hold on mother earth
To see your beautiful face smiling at me
Hold on mother earth
I want to give back your love, but I don't know how
Hold on mother earth

Patiently she waits, just watching the sea
A message in a bottle sailing on the tide
Her weather-beaten face, hides her waning faith
Everything to lose, everything to gain
Take my hand and feel my love
I will heal your wounds and make dry your tears
And of all the things I could sing of, cannot express what's inside of me...
The heart of your son is not so cold, it has not forgotten your love

Hold on mother earth
Now it's my turn to tend to your needs
Now I comprehend
All the things I hold dear, you gave to me
Hold on mother earth
To see your beautiful face smiling at me
Hold on mother earth
I want to give back your love, but I don't know how
Hold on mother earth

Hold on mother earth
Now it's my turn to tend to your needs
Now I comprehend
All the things I hold dear, you gave to me
Hold on mother earth
To see your beautiful face smiling at me
Hold on mother earth
I want to give back your love,
Please tell me how
Hold on mother earth

[In Arabic, sung by Jbara]
Mother Earth, I give you my soul, my love, my respect, my whole life.
You are life, you are our mother, you are respect.

[In Portuguese, sung by Andre Matos]
Mother Earth that sings and sings, life brings and gives, Mother Earth
that sings and sings, immortal life and time.




10. ECHOES OF A LIFE

Echoes of a life
Resounding from in his soul
Sacrificed freedom cries
Echoes from a light
Reflections of his hard work
He was building his own life
For a soul meant to fly

He smiles like a little boy
No hope in his eyes
But cries like a grown man
Tears he never should have cried

Purity of a soul
So noble heart of gold
How easily it falls apart
Then came that great war
Looking down with evil eyes
Filling his life with... with
Horrors better left behind

I will not forget
To sing of his song
With pride and with gratitude that the world couldn't show
I wish I could sit by your side once again
To hear of adventures
And to know how you are
I'll never understand
How we've forgotten him
He witnessed our births

Echoes of a life
Reaching out from his soul
Sacrificed freedom cries
For the old man's leaving now
Echoes from the light
Reflections of his hard work
He will rise with the
Memories of a time
Sounding forever
Echoes of his life




11. where the streets have no name

I want to run
I want to hide
I want to tear down the walls
That hold me inside
I want to reach out
And touch the flame
Where the streets have no name

I want to feel sunlight on my face
I see the dust cloud disappear
Without a trace
I want to take shelter from the poison rain
Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
We're still building
Then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there
I go there with you
It's all I can do

The city's aflood
And our love turns to rust
We're beaten and blown by the wind
Trampled in dust
I'll show you a place
High on a desert plain
Where the streets have no name

Where the streets have no name
Where the streets have no name
We're still building
Then burning down love
Burning down love
And when I go there
I go there with you
It's all I can do
Our love turns to rust
We're beaten and blown by the wind
Blown by the wind
Oh, and I see love
See our love turn to rust
We're beaten and blown by the wind
Blown by the wind
Oh, when I go there
I go there with you
It's all I can do
