DISC

1. UNTOUCHABLE, PT. 1

And I feel like I knew you before
And I guess that you can hear me through this song

And my love will never die
And my feelings will always shine
And my love will never die
And my feelings will always shine

And I know that you just want me to belong to someone
And I guess that now I`ll just be moving on to someone

And my love will never die
And my feelings will always shine
And my love will never die
And my feelings will always shine

I`ve never betrayed your trust
I`ve never betrayed your faith
I`ll never forsake your heart
I`ll never forget your face

There`s a feeling that I can`t describe
There`s a reason that I cannot hide
`Cause I`ve never seen a light that`s so bright
The light that shines behind your eyes

I`ve never betrayed your trust
I`ve never betrayed your faith
I`ll never forsake your heart
I`ll never forget your face

There`s feeling that I can`t describe
A reason that I cannot hide
I`ve never seen a light that`s so bright
The light that shines behind your eyes

I can see this life and what you mean to me
And when I dreamed, I dreamed of you
Then I wake, tell me what I do

I had to let you go
To the setting sun
I had to let you go
To find your way back home
I had to let you go
To the setting sun
I had to let you go
To find your way back home




2. UNTOUCHABLE, PT. 2

Why I should feel this way (x2)
Why I should feel the same

Something I cannot say (x2)
Something I can't explain

I feel you outside
At the edge of my life

I see you walk by
At the edge of my sight

Why I should follow my heart (x2)
Why I should fall apart

Why I should follow my dreams (x2)
Why I should be at peace

I feel you outside
At the edge of my life

I see you.. walk by
At the edge of my sight

I had to let you go
To the setting sun

I had to let you go
And find a way back home

I had to let you go
To the setting sun

I had to let you go
And find a way back home

(When I dream, I see you) (x2)

I've never seen a light that's so bright (x3)

Blinded by the light that's inside (x2)

Blinded by the light that's inside you

I had to let you go
To the setting sun

I had to let you go
And find a way back home




3. THIN AIR

Love is free
In time, in peace
And now is here
This life, this dream ...

You know how it feels but... is it all in your mind?
When you know how it feels to be pushed and pulled through your life
And sometimes it seems like there is life in your eyes
And all that I know is I love you

Yes I love you

And it feels like we're already flying
But the air is too thin and we're dying
The clouds all around take us higher
The world far below is on fire
I hold out my hand just to touch you
And all that I know is I love you
A vision a promise of heaven
A reason for being forever

You're just a whisper away

We've come too far to turn back
This is where we stand and face it
This is who we are, one step closer
Into thin air we will go there

We've come too far to turn back
This is where we stand and face it
I feel you breathe
You're just a whisper away

We've come too far to turn back
This is where we stand and face it
This is who we are one step close
Into thin air we will go there

We've come too far ...
This is where we stand ...




4. DREAMING LIGHT

Suddenly... life has new meaning
Suddenly... feeling is being
Suddenly... I don't have to be afraid
Suddenly... All falls into place

And you shine inside
And love stills my mind like the sunrise
Dreaming light of the sunrise

And you shine inside
And love stills my mind like the sunrise
Dreaming light of the sunrise
Dreaming light and ...

I feel you but I don't really know you
I dreamed of you from the moment I saw you
And I've seen the sunrise in your eyes
The sky... the sea... the light

So live your dream beneath the northern horizon
Be at peace, set your heart in flight again
For the light is truth...
The light is you...




5. THE STORM BEFORE THE CALM

Never, never, never, never ever, never leave you
I will, I will always, always be here for you
Found you, found you
I will, never ever leave you
Never
I will always be here with you
Getting better, better, better, better

It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, colder, it's getting colder
Let it get colder until I can't feel anything at all
It's getting colder,
It's getting colder, colder

Come on, on me
Touching, laughing, ha ha
Love me, love me for me
Holding, watching, loving
Getting better better better better

It's getting colder, I'm getting colder, colder, it's getting colder
Let it get colder until I can't feel anything at all
It's getting colder, it's getting colder, colder, I'm getting colder
Let it get colder until I can't feel anything at all

The shadows, the shadows

It ebbs and flows
And comes and goes
And rips you up and lets you go
It eats inside and splits your mind
As you search around for others kind
To gather strength from the depth
To fight the fight from day 'til night, 'til night, 'til night, 'til night, 'til night, 'til night

This beautiful feeling soars over the skies
Moving through my body out my mind
It rises up and floods my brain
This is fucking insane, this is fucking insane

Am I still here?
This wonderful feeling
Am I still alive?
This wonderful feeling
Am I still here?
This wonderful feeling
Am I still alive?
This wonderful feeling




6. EVERYTHING

Needed time to clear my mind
And breathe the free air find some peace there
I used to keep my heart in jail
But the choice was love or fear of pain and

I...
Chose...
Love...
Cos everything is energy and energy is you and me...

Light shines in through an open window
Shines inside your heart and soul and
Light will guide your way through time
And love will help you heal your mind and

Life...
Will...
Be..

Cos everything is energy and energy is you and me...




7. A SIMPLE MISTAKE

Think for yourself you know what you need in this life
See for yourself and feel your soul come alive tonight
Here in the moment we share, trembling between the worlds we stare
Out at starlight enshrined, veiled like diamonds in...

...time can be the answer, take a chance or lose it all
It's a simple mistake to make to create love and to fall
So rise, be your master, you don't need to be a slave
Of memory ensnared in a web, in a cage

I have found my way to fly free from constraints of time
I have soared through the sky seen life far below in mind
Breathed in truth, love, serene, sailed on OCEANS OF BELIEF
Searched and found life inside, we're not just a moment In...

...Time can be the answer, take a chance or lose it all
It's a simple mistake to make to create love and to fall
So rise and be your master, you don't need to be a slave
Of memory ensnared in a web, in a cage
In a web, in a cage
In a web, in a cage
In a web, in a cage

It's never too late [repeat]

[Spoken words from "Defending Middle-Earth Tolkien: Myth And Modernity" by Patrick Curry:]
Despair is for people who know, beyond any doubt, what the Future is going to bring.
Nobody is in that position.
So despair is not only a kind of sin, theologically, but Also a simple mistake, because nobody actually knows.
In that sense there always is hope.




8. THE BEGINNING AND THE END

Inside this cold heart is a dream
That's locked in a box that I keep
Buried a hundred miles deep
Deep in my soul in a place that's surrounded by aeons of silence

And somewhere inside is the key
To everything I want to feel
But the dark summer dawns of my memory
Are lost in a place that can never be

Can someone please show me the way?
Can someone please help me?
Because I cannot see
The silence is raging!
Silence is raging

Silence, silence
Fade into silence
Silence, silence
Fade into silence

Memory, memory
Inside is the key to
Memory, memory
Inside is the key to memory




9. UNIVERSAL

Above the clouds
We flew to heaven
Through the eye of the storm
And into to the light

I see you
You're everywhere I go
In everything I do

I dreamed a thousand years
Just to be here where everything is right
Scrape those screamless skies
Defy the limits and fly

I see you
You're everywhere I go
In everything I do

I see you
You're everywhere I go
In everything I do




10. CLOSER

Your dream world is a very scary place
Your dream world is a very scary place
Your dream world is a very scary place
To be trapped

Your dream world is a very scary place
Your dream world is a very scary place
Your dream world is a very scary place
To be trapped inside
To be trapped inside
To be trapped inside
All your life

Shine in time
Shine in time
Shine in time
Until you find

You're closer
You're closer
To the truth

Within you
Within you
Within you
Is the truth

That your dream world is a very scary place
That your dream world is a very scary place
That your dream world is a very scary place
To be trapped inside
To be trapped inside
To be trapped inside
All your life

You're closer
You're closer
You're closer
To the truth

Within you
Within you
Within you
Is the truth




11. A NATURAL DESASTER

It's been a long cold winter without you
I've been crying on the inside over you
Just slipped through my fingers as life turned away
It's been a long cold winter since that day

It's hard to find
Hard to find
Hard to find the strength now but I try
And I don't want to
Don't want to
Don't want to go on and speak now
Of what's gone by
Cos no matter what I say
No matter what I do
I cant change what happened
No matter what I say
No matter what I do
I cant change what happened

You just slipped through my fingers
And I feel so ashamed
You just slipped through my fingers
And I have paid

Cos no matter what I say
No matter what I do
I cant change what happened
No matter what I say
No matter what I do
I cant change what happened
No no I can't change

Just slipped through my fingers
And I feel so ashamed
You just slipped through my fingers
And I have paid.




12. FLYING

Started a search to no avail
A light that shines behind the veil trying to find it
And all around us everywhere
Is all that we could ever share if only we could see it
Feel there's truth that's beyond me
Life ever changing weaving destiny

And it feels like I'm flying above you
Dream that I'm dying to find the truth
Seems like your trying to bring me down
Back down to earth back down to earth

Layers of dust and yesterdays
Shadows fading in the haze of what I couldn't say
And though I said my hands were tied
Times have changed and now I find I'm free for the first time
Feel so close to everything now
Strange how life makes sense in time now

And it feels like I'm flying above you
Dream that I'm dying to find the truth
Seems like your trying to bring me down
Back down to earth back down to earth
Back down to earth back down to earth x2
