1. IN TIME

Fly Again...
Now you see this living Masterpiece
A portrait of your soul
A treasure that haunts through the channels of time
Memories life never stole

Will you find you tomorrow
Now you hide yesterday
Find the path of deliverance Find another day

In time.....Looking for your Angel
In time.....In time your spirit will fly again
In time.....

Forever you'll question each day
Pretending life maybe wrong
Facing the truth it may come one day
A dying heart waiting long

Will you find you tomorrow
Now you hide yesterday
Find the path of deliverance Find another day
Turn back on those memories
Don't relive that day
Oh regrets, they'll burn forever
Illusions fade away

Here in our hearts you'll stay forever
The scent of your hair The eternal perfume

In time.....Looking for your Angel
In time.....In time your spirit will fly again
In time.....Still looking for your angel
In time.....In time your spirit will fly again
Fly again.....

Here in our hearts you'll stay forever
Here in our hearts you'll stay forever.....




2. RESTLESS HEART

Time ticks with each heart beat, each moment
Taking me somewhere. I never thought would happen
And all roads give a promise to lead a better life somewhere
Then gone with sharp aggression

There must be more to life than this,
There must be another way
Instead of chasing endless rainbows

No, I, I can't live with this restless heart
And I, I never meant it this way, no, no

Sometimes it feels like I've been here for a thousand years or more
Dreams lay just beyond my fingers
I'll reach and I'll touch and I'll taste each moment as it comes
In my memory she lingers

There must be more to life than this,
There must be another way
Instead of chasing endless rainbows

No, I, I can't live with this restless heart
And I, I never meant it this way, no, no
I, I can't live with this restless heart
And it's no longer mine to give away, no, no

Here in my heart, I've had all the promises
And it's here in my heart that there's nothing to lose
Searching my dreams, looking for reason
Oh, so deep in my soul I am nobody's fool
I know my place in time may be forgotten
And the angels that I fear will stay with me

Time ticks with each heart beat, each moment
Taking me somewhere. I never thought would happen

There must be more to life than this,
There must be another way
Instead of chasing endless rainbows

I, I can't live with this restless heart
And I, I never meant it this way, no, no
I, I can't live with this restless heart
And it's no longer mine to give away, no, no

I can't live with this restless heart, no, no
I can't live with this restless heart
And it's no longer mine to give away, no, no




3. TEARS IN THE RAIN

Counting the years I will treasure forever
Look to the skies for the wonder you'll never see
Tasting the fear but the bitterness will follow
Ending the pain but for me it can not be

I'll keep on searching the unreachable goal
And I'll keep on searching the depth of my soul

I cried but the tears would never show in the rain
I'd hide them again, oh
I lied but my face would never show you my pain,
But you know the game

I count my fears and I count my blessings
The balance I knew would never go my way
Clouds melt away, the light slips through darkness
The sun so cold, so very far away

I'll keep on searching the unreachable goal
And I'll keep on searching the depth of my soul

I cried but the tears would never show in the rain
I'd hide them again, oh
I lied but my face would never show you my pain,
But you know the game

I cried but the tears would never show in the rain
I'd hide them again, oh
I lied but my face would never show you my pain,
But you know the game

I lied
I cried
I cried
I cried




4. SO HIGH

So high, so high
It rose like a serpent from hell
So high I fly
I'm trapped and I can't break this spell

Standing on the bridge at midnight
Will I ever see the new light?
Come much further than I did before

Push my body to the limit
It gets stronger by the minute
Now my feet don't eve touch the floor

So high, so high
It rose like a serpent from hell
So high I fly
I'm trapped and I can't break this spell

Heart is crazy pumping faster
Am I slave or am I master?
Armed and ready out to sell my soul

Living like there's no tomorrow
This road to hell I chose to follow
Looking for a way out from the cold

So high, so high
It rose like a serpent from hell
So high I fly
I'm trapped and I can't break this spell

So high, so high

I can almost touch the border
Upside down and out of order
Inside out I've finally lost my way

Ride this monster to my freedom
Will I reach my perfect kingdom?
Will I ever see another day?

So high, so high
It rose like a serpent from hell
So high I fly
I'm trapped and I can't break this spell

So high




5. TURN THE TIDE

This would be killing me if I hadn't walked away
We never said goodbye
Maybe that's how it should have stayed

Another time, another life
You would have set me free

I'll be forever by your side
If only I could turn the tide
Forever in this loneliness
This guilt inside
I'm driving the lonely way home

But I never said it won't protect me
From the light of day
And all the moments spent with you
Inside my head must go away

Another time, another life
You would have set me free

I'll be forever by your side
If only I could turn the tide
Forever in this loneliness
This guilt inside
I'm driving the lonely way home

Another time, another life
You would have set me free

I'll be forever by your side
If only I could turn the tide
Forever in this loneliness
This guilt inside
I'm driving the lonely way home

Driving the lonely way home
Forever by your side
Forever by your side
Turning back the tide

I'll be forever by your side
If only I could turn the tide
Forever in this loneliness
This guilt inside
I'm driving the lonely way home

Turning back the tide
Forever by your side
If only I could turn back time

I'm driving the lonely way home
I'm driving my way home




6. TOUCH THE RAINBOW

In my dreams I have wandered through life
Plan the journey I would make
Meeting friends of far gone time
From this dream I would never wake

The broken wings that once stopped you fly
Now in the end the spirit will die... spirit will die

When can I touch the rainbow?
When can I follow the stars?
Why does space go on forever and ever?
Will our minds let us travel this far?

Now to the edge and far beyond
The depth of space and time
A mystery no one will ever know
No boundaries that we can define

The broken wings that once stopped you fly
Now in the end the spirit will die... spirit will die

When can I touch the rainbow?
When can I follow the stars?
Why does space go on forever and ever?
Will our minds let us travel this far?

When can I touch the rainbow?
When can I follow the stars?
Why does space go on forever and ever?
Will our minds let us travel this far?

When can I touch the rainbow?
When can I follow the stars?
Why does space go on forever and ever?
Will our minds let us travel this far?

When can I touch the rainbow?
When can I follow the stars?
Why does space go on forever and ever?
Will our minds let us travel this far?

Will our minds let us travel this far?




7. THRESHOLD OF A DREAM

There's magic written in our hearts
And it waits to hear you
We were dancing all the summer long
And rising in the fall

On the threshold of a dream
Run with the good time thieves
And midnight diamonds

Now the will is strong and the dream is yours
Time to embrace your passion
Listen to your heart and tear down all these doors
And you can have it all

On the threshold of a dream
Run with the good time thieves
And midnight diamonds
On the threshold of a dream
Fill your hears with all the colours of the night

Tearing down these doors
The midnight diamonds
Fill your heart with all the colours
Colours of the night

There's magic written in our hearts
Time to embrace your passion
Listen to your heart and tear down all these doors
And you can have it all

On the threshold of a dream
Run with the good time thieves
And midnight diamonds
On the threshold of a dream
Fill your hears with all the colours of the night
Colours of the night
Midnight diamonds




8. PLAYING DOG

Too young to see what life was meant to be
A tender hearts so innocent all could see

Into space I'm staring now,
Into darkness I'm breaking my vow

Who am I to be playing god?
I'll be paying the price 'til the end
You are my badge of honour
Every second of every day

I've seen behind every shadow,
The phantom of my yesterday
Ah, ah

You're the reason I am counting
I count my shadows now,
I'm longing now to end this waiting game

Into space I'm staring now,
Into darkness I'm breaking my vow

Who am I to be playing god?
I'll be paying the price 'til the end
How I feel this heartache burning inside
In the devil I will defend

I've seen behind every shadow,
The phantom of my yesterday
Ah, ah

I see the future, I know it's wrong
A new life is beginning, another one is gone
I cannot be creation, change this legacy
Maybe worth believing, re-live my destiny

I see the future, I know it's wrong
A new life is beginning, another one is gone
I cannot be creation, change this legacy
Maybe worth believing, re-live my destiny

Tell me who...

Who am I to be playing god?
I'll be paying the price 'til the end
How I feel this heartache burning inside
In the devil I will defend

Who am I to be playing god?
I'll be paying the price 'til the end
How I feel this heartache burning inside
In the devil I will defend

Oh, no, no, no




9. HIGHWAY

This perfect night
All your demons have disappeared into the past
The road ahead
Leads you to a great unknown and moving so fast

Take my hand and you'll see what it's all about
All that went before, no need to scream and shout
Let me show you how it was meant to be

Oh, you're coming home again
The sun—it shines like a long-lost friend on this highway

Live your dreams
Give them light and forget the tears that you've cried
The bluest skies
Raining down just to kiss your smile and dance in your eyes

This life is yours turn the world around
Conceived in passion, make a sound
Don't let some heavy heart bring you down
Bring you down

Oh, you're coming home again
The sun—it shines like a long-lost friend on this highway
Oh, you're coming home again
You get in life what you give, my friend on this highway

This perfect night, on this road ahead, live again

Oh, you're coming home again
The sun—it shines like a long-lost friend on this highway
Oh, you're coming home again
You get in life what you give, my friend on this highway

You've got to live your life
You've got to give your life now, yeah
On this highway, on this highway,
You get in life what you give, my friend... give in all again
On the highway, on this highway




10. SANCTUARY

Escape from the blackness, but enter the dark
The strength of believing in Satan's mark
Come join our friendship, leave us your soul
Escape the boundaries reliving your role

See all of your future, come share in our dreams
Don't hide from your saviour, see the line that's between

I can hear the sons of Satan, I can hear my friends are waiting

Sanctuary, enter the sanctuary

Open your kingdom, open your eyes
Am I the chosen one?
This time you'll see my name in lights won't be forgotten

Escape from the blackness, but enter the dark
The strength of believing in Satan's mark
Come join our friendship, leave us your soul
Escape the boundaries reliving your role

See all of your future, come share in our dreams
Don't hide from your saviour, see the line that's between

I can hear the sons of Satan, I can hear my friends are waiting

And now at last you see my face
This time you'll see my name in lights won't be forgotten
And now at last you hear my prayer
A silent voice you long to hear too long forgotten

In dreams
In dreams I've known I've been before
Inside this mystery won't be forgotten

Won't be forgotten
Won't be forgotten
Won't be forgotten
