Lyrics

1. GONE

In a dream I had a final vision
How come you just want to be my friend
How come?
Will you ever have to justify
The hidden meaning in your time again

I'm gone, gone just like the past
Because I'm gone
And you won't be the last cos I'll be strong
Now can you hear my voice
Because I'm gone

In an ordinary complication
I come to my realisation
How come?
Well you came to me with velvet skin
How come I did let you in?
How come?

I'm gone, gone just like the past
Because I'm gone
And you won't be the last cos I'll be strong
Now can you hear my voice
Because I'm gone

Still it breaks me down inside
As I walk through the fire
I am a stronger man
Nothing will change me at all, you lie

In a dream I had a final vision
How come you just want to be my friend
How come?

I'm gone, gone just like the past
Because I'm gone
And you won't be the last cos I'll be strong
Now can you hear my voice
Because I'm gone

I'm gone, gone just like the past
Because I'm gone
And you won't be the last cos I'll be strong
Now can you hear my voice
Because I'm gone




2. FROM ANOTHER WORLD

Somewhere in time forgotten
I know I lost the way
So many times there fading
I thought I heard you say
Although I've never met you
But I do know you well
Lay your head upon my pillow
And only time will tell
From another world, from another world

And I will never go back
To waste another day
I wish I was the last one
To live a life that way
And I have walked through madness
I burn with fear inside
Leave a candle in the window
And god knows I have tried
From another world, from another world

Maybe someone's trying to make my life away
Maybe I just want to live cos I'm not crazy
And I will move another mountain, maybe

If there's another lifetime
Where I don't have to hide
Leave a candle in the window
Cos god knows I have tried
From another world, from another world
From another world, from another world

From another world
From another world

I wish I was the last one
I burn with fear inside

From another world




3. DON'T YOU TELL ME

Too many promises
Too many reasons I recall
Too many people
I see the writing on the wall
I must have got you wrong
What kind of world do you live in?
I've waited for too long
I know where you've been

Don't you tell me you don't know
Don't you tell me
Don't you tell me you don't know
Don't you tell me

Am I a sacrifice
Am I a fool to blind to see
I'm not a vagabond
I know what is, is meant to be
There is a better way
There comes a time I do believe
There is a price to pay
And I know where you've been

Don't you tell me you don't know
Don't you tell me
Don't you tell me you don't know
Don't you tell me
Don't you tell me you don't know
Don't you tell me
Don't you tell me you don't know
Don't you tell me

Standing in a waterfall
Try to ease your shame
Deep inside this tragedy
I try to kill my pain
Don't you tell me

Standing in a waterfall
Try to ease your shame
Deep inside this tragedy
I try to kill my pain
Don't you tell me

Don't you tell me you don't know
Don't you tell me
Don't you tell me you don't know

Don't you tell me you don't know
Don't you tell me
Don't you tell me you don't know




4. DON'T DRAG THE RIVER

There is a place on the wrong side of town
It's a curse whenever I go
And I have to forget that the thoughts in my head
Let me down, I want you to know
Now I don't know ya, but you are my jailer
I've sentenced by the jury below
Now it scares me to death
And I just cannot let this cage they put over me

Don't drag the river
I hear the voices on the ground
Don't drag the river
I go to sleep without a sound

You can turn out the daylight
I'll be gone in the morning
You can try to burn down the sun
I gotta make you believe
That I did not deceive
No, I did not hurt anyone
You can make me slave
You can make me a number
But I'm not the one who lied
Cos they threw away the key
And it just cannot be
In this cage that they put over me

Don't drag the river
I hear the voices on the ground
Don't drag the river
I go to sleep without a sound

I'm in a state of madness
I panic in my head
They're gonna pull me under
No matter what I said
I taste the fear inside me
I'm gonna break my vow
And now the hound is callin'
It's gonna take me down

Taste the fear inside me
I'm gonna break my vow
And now the hound is callin'
Take me down

I hear the voices on the ground
I go to sleep without a sound

Drag the river
I hear the voices on the ground
Don't drag the river
I go to sleep without a sound

River
I hear the voices on the ground
Don't drag the river
I go to sleep without a sound

Don't drag the river




5. FINE

Someday you will have to choose
It doesn't really matter, I'll be fine
There will be just love and sorrow
It doesn't really matter, I'll be fine
Living with this indecision
I will keep on breathing, I'll be fine

I was here to let you in
Now I will let you go, I'll be fine
I will turn and walk away
Someday you will see, I'll be fine

There's a rose in England's glory
You paint perfect picture story
You're living in a masquerade
Don't try and shake my life

I saw you in the papers
I got you in my head
And now I'm getting better
You know it can't be bad
They're going to make a movie
About the life I led
And I will see you later
Cos I've been feeling sad, I'll be fine

Fine, fine

You don't need to understand
Cos you don't even know me, I'll be fine
So open up the simple life
The universe is waiting, I'll be fine

There's a rose in England's glory
You paint perfect picture story
You're living in a masquerade
Don't try and shake my life

I saw you in the papers
I got you in my head
And now I'm getting better
You know it can't be bad
They're going to make a movie
About the life I led
And I will see you later
Cos I've been feeling sad, I'll be fine

Fine, fine




6. TIME IS THE HEALER

There's some people that you believe in
And people want you for more
And I won't deceive you
Just let me receive the same thing
We're both looking for

Time to face the real life
Time to open the door
Time to make decisions
It's time to even the score
Time to kill the sadness
Time just can't be denied
Time to make you wonder?
And time to cast it aside

Inside the garden of plenty
Is a price that we'll all have to pay
There is a race with no colour
Now I want you to hear what I say
Won't you bring me some water
And I will give you my blood
But you won't give me your time
Now have I been misunderstood?

Time to catch your spirit
Time to find who you love
Time to find a new beginning
Time will fall from above
Time outside of the mirror
Time to break away
Cos time is the forgiver
And time will show you the way
Oh yes it will
Time!

You know I have nothing planned
I want you to understand
Now won't you just let it be?
Cos time heals your memory

Time is the healer
Time, time, time is the healer
Time to catch the real life

Time is the healer




7. I'M NOT THE SAME MAN

Between the colour of this moment
I fail to stop the hands of time
I lay to rest where am I going
I've come this far to change my mind
I know there is no lie to break
I know that I have made mistakes

Beneath the symbol of my conscience
I stand alone for what is right
My body heals that once was broken
I make amends to cure my sight
And I will never look away
And I will face another day

I'm not the same man
I'll never break that vow again
I'm past the pain
Cos I'm not the same man

Surrounded by a code of silence
There comes a time to turn the page
And I won't give my soul to no one
Now is the time to come of age

I'm not the same man
I'll never break that vow again
I'm past the pain
Cos I'm not the same man

I'm not the same man
I'll never break that vow again
I'm past the pain
Cos I'm not the same man

I'm not the same man
I'll never break that vow again
I'm past the pain
Cos I'm not the same man

I'm not the same man
I'll never break that vow again
I'm past the pain
Cos I'm not the same man

Same man, same man
I'm not the same
I'm not the same




8. IT FALLS THROUGH ME

Another cold night in the silence
I never thought you would be leaving
I only wanted to try and make you see
Is there a chance to tell me why
And where do you begin to try?
The battle is over
Mistaken again?

It falls through me
It falls through me

It falls through me

Now in the darkness of my cold room
This time I live alone forever
I only wanted to make you understand
Too late, the gold has turned to rust
You wait, your love lies in the dust
I gave you my spirit
Now this is the end

It falls through me
It falls through me
It falls through me
It falls through me

It falls through me

It falls through me

This battle is over
Mistaken again?
I gave you my spirit
Now this is the end

It falls through me

Is these a chance to tell me why

It falls through me
