The Silver Falls tracks

Lyrics


1. OPEN THE GATES

Night emerald trees
Unfold their leaves
Adorning to the glade of Armagh

Open the Gates
The Elves will come in
To enlight the dark
To defend their land

From far beyond
Through the darkest glen
The knights will come
On a blazing path

Fight with fire warmth
Be one with the night
Remember my gift
When doubt brings down your heart

Open the Gates
The Elves will come in
To enlight the dark
To defend their land

And dance through the night
Until the morning comes
Together we stand
To defend our land




2. ELFENNACHT

Sahst du die Sterne verglühn - im Silberwind
Wünscht du die Wege so hell - in finstrer Nacht
Tanzt du im Feuer mit mir - so fern ich auch bin
Öffnest die Wege zu mir - ahnst du die Macht

Tanze - fühle - eröffne - die Nacht
Ich tanz mit dir - den Nebeltanz - die Nacht so stark
Tränen - des Monde - zeigt eure Macht
Des Morgenlichts - das sich erhebt - der Nacht so schwer

Wesen sie eilen zu uns - aus weiter Welt
Die Mauern der Feste so hell - aus Flammen gemacht
Die Nebel erwecken das Licht - das Tiefen erhellt
Du riefst und ich eilte zu dir - mit Feuermacht

Hörst du die Elfen gar fern so leis, so zart
Trägst du die Mächte heut Nacht in guter Tat

Tanze - fühle - eröffne - die Nacht
Ich tanz mit dir - den Nebeltanz - die Nacht so stark
Tränen - des Monde - zeigt eure Macht
Des Morgenlichts - das sich erhebt - der Nacht so schwer




3. SILVERLEAF

Here I hold the Silverleaf
You once gave me near the moon
A star is closed into this leaf
Is this love meant for me - meant for us?

Take my kiss, my painful love
My sad heart, it’s all I have
To Dagaz, tears of the moon will
Dance with us

How weak the luck in my hands
I am drawing you with silvery light
Which love is meant for me
To come with me to the endless sea

Take my kiss, my painful love
My sad heart, it’s all I have
To Dagaz, tears of the moon will
Dance with us




4. THE LAND THROUGH YOUR EYES

Lost in lonesome woods
Was exiled to my darkest fear
No dusk, no dawn find their way to me
To lead me out of this

Misdeed was done when I came in
I’ve never seen such dreadful sin
A well-known shadow covered me
For I was cursed so wrongfully

Now I can see the land through your eyes
Can feel the wind carry me up high
Through the clouds and endless skies
Till I reach my homeland I will fly

Misdeed was done when I came in
I’ve never seen such dreadful sin
A well-known shadow covered me
For I was cursed so wrongfully

Now I can see the land through your eyes
Can feel the wind carry me up high
Through the clouds and endless skies
Till I reach my homeland I will fly

I raven’s coat I shall prevail
From breeze to wind
From storm to gale

Now I can see the land through your eyes
Can feel the wind carry me up high
Through the clouds and endless skies
Till I reach my homeland I will fly




5. PAPERBOAT & SILVERKITE

Little paper boat
Against the force of tides
Dragged to open sea
Subtel wind comes up

As shimmring as a shell
As shimmring is your heart
As hollow as a shell
As hollow is your heart

And I really wanna be in your arms tonight
Feels like I’m dragged by the force of a satellite
So I’m sitting here looking at the waterside
While I’m flying on emotions like a silver kite

Paper boat’s fighting against the force of tides
Like it’s dragged by the force of a satellite
I am sitting here looking at the ocean wide
And feel like flying on emotions like a silver kite

Take all my hopes with you
Take all my dreams with you
Take all my love with you
Take my whole life with you

A thousand miles away
When silence breaks the wind
And everything is calm
She’s opening her arms

A little paper boat
Was washed ashore, some say
Out of sight for long
Existing anyway

And I really wanna be in your arms tonight
Feels like I’m dragged by the force of a satellite
So I’m sitting here looking at the waterside
While I’m flying on emotions like a silver kite

Paper boat’s fighting against the force of tides
Like it’s dragged by the force of a satellite
I am sitting here looking at the ocean wide
And feel like flying on emotions like a silver kite




6. THE EMERALD PRINCESS

Tell me the story of the emerald Princess
Who lived in this forest many centuries ago
The sheen of two gems filled with ivory moonlight
Her hair was meadow when kissed by the wind

Shadows play in every light
A secret kept in darkest night
See what we saw with our eyes
When she awoke without disguise

Tell me the story of the emerald Princess
Who lived in this forest many centuries ago
Her beauty’s been kept all throughout ages
The spell of forever, the roots of her sight

To lift the veil the spell’s been torn
The secret’s known and she’s forlorn
And Princess Weeping Willow’s hand
Had written down the saga’s end




7. CRIMSON LULLABY: THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD

Crimson Lullaby, we may fall asleep
As soon as we forget our dreams

It’s so hard to believe
We still run out of sense
For the weight of the world
For the weight of the world




8. CRIMSON LULLABY: THE DREAMER

We may fall asleep, may fall asleep
May fall so deep, may fall asleep

You can say what you want – But you know that I don’t trust you anymore
You can say what you want – But you know that I don’t love you anymore
Say my name, say my name – But you know that I don’t listen you anymore
Fall asleep, fall asleep – But you know that I won’t dream of you no more

Crimson Lullaby




9. AMBER FIELDS

Moments so calm
Seen in the past
In our embrace
You’ve always promised me

To stand by me
Forevermore
To hold me here
To new day’s dawn

Follow me
Through amber fields

All alone
A secret song
Follow me
Through amber fields

See me smile
Through silent tears
You can be sure
I’ll always be near




10. MY PROMISED LAND

Fate takes me away
From where we once dreamed
This wonderful kingdom
Of beauty and light

All these lonely days
To catch your embrace
My dreams seem so painful
Since you left my side

Where is the path, the path to you
What is the world to let me through
Where is the path, the path to you
Into the life, that I’m missing so

Guarded by stars
Kept of your song
Your voice full of magic
It whispers to me

Will walk through the lands
No one understands
My star fades away
But I’ll never rest

Where is the path, the path to you
What is the world to let me through
Where is the path, the path to you
Into the life, that I’m missing so

Oh my promised land – drive my pain away
Oh my sanctuary – lead me out of the astray
Oh my promised land – remembrance is a truth
And it’s forever – forever kept in you




11. ENCHANTMENT (DANCE WITH A STORM)

Break adrift, break adrift
Follow me into the crowd
Take my hand, take my kiss
And enjoy this bliss

Come undone, dome inside
Into tonight’s embrace
And the world and its grace
Is our oyster tonight

Just for the blink of an eye
You are mine
Just for some temporary bliss
Take this kiss

You’re the light of the sacred
Give me your warmth
I’m the eye of the cyclone
Dance with a storm

Into the arms of enchantment
Till a new break of dawn
A new break of dawn




12. ONE LAST TIME

I know it’s over now
And I have cried too many times
I must get over this
Bury my hope one last time

But then the wind reminds me of you
And the rain reminds me, too
When it snows I think of you
And the spring reminds me of you
And every day I think of you
Will you ever love me, too
Will you

Another day
And life goes on
I haven’t seen you for about two years
And soon there’s not much left to feel
You coldly closed that door too many times

Sometimes it’s like I see you here
It’s just my mind playing tricks on me
‘cause I will never see you again
I will move on
Won’t look back

But then the wind reminds me of you
And the rain reminds me, too
When it snows I think of you
And the spring reminds me of you
And every day I think of you
Will you ever love me, too
Will you
