Lyrics


1. ILLUSION

How could I ever go back
Back to the life
Where I lived amongst the dead
Who have forgotten how to feel
And become slaves to memory
And wishful thinking
But your love has set me free
As you awaken every star
That has been sleeping
In the constellation of my soul
How could I go back to live amongst the dead
Those who imprisoned beauty
I never want to leave your arms
So I wait in hope for your embrace
Illusions of what I thought was love
Now I have clear sight to see
That I have left nothing behind




2. THE BEGINNING

I see who you are and who else can compare
I meant what I said
I promised to stand by your side
Until the end
That's where we begin
From here to eternity
We begin understanding
It is our hearts that define
What has meaning in life
Some will ask how can this be but it
Was you who made me feel




3. REINVENTION

You brought existence
To what I never thought could be
A world where eternity finds description
I followed a dream only to be left in reality
You reminded me of the unexplainable
And then reshaped me by your beauty
Knowing you has reinvented love in my heart
The perfection of loves' true existence
Experienced for the first time
I tried so hard to wake from this dream
But instead realized that I never fell asleep




4. THE PAIN OF SEPARATION

How can I bear this any longer?
Arms stretched out only to hold separation
Take me away
I'm dying inside
Emptied before you
I will fight until the day
When I will see
Sight given to these blind eyes
When will I be taken from this life?
Take what is your
You deserve more than my life




5. FOREVER

Forever your eyes will hold the memory
I saw your heart as it overtook me
We tried so hard to understand and reason
But in the one moment I gave my heart away
The perfect breath where my mind lay beside me
And all I knew is what had overtaken me
With no explanation
I am comforted by my inability to understand
When I wake from this dream will you still be here?
Will your smile still open my heart
And leave me trasparent?
