Lyrics, Poems etc. that you like and their meaning to you

Post by stratohawk » Thu Feb 09, 2006 10:03 pm

I thought I start a topic where everyone can post some nice words (of song lyrics, poems, whatever) and describe what they mean for one.

I'd like to start with a poem I got in a small card on the memorial service for one of my classmates who died in a crash during her training flight. Maybe some of you know it, it's kind of a mantra to pilots and cited quite often when it comes to the farewell to a pilot.


High Flight

Oh! I’ve slipped the surly bonds of earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds – and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of – wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there
I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air.
Up, up the long delirious, burning blue
I’ve topped the windswept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or even eagle flew –
And, while with silent lifting mind I’ve trod
The high untresspassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand and touched the face of God.

I like this one very much, though for no particular reason. I think everyone knows it : If by Rudyard Kipling.


If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;

If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two imposters just the same;

If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with wornout tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;

If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on";

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;

If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son!
Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated ~desu

Blood Fire Death by Bathory

Deaths star on horizon
Lightning and rain
Black winds and thunder
The skyline is in flames

Written in the red mist
The sign of the one
Who rides deaths cold wind
And walks disguised among

All you vagrant souls
Of profane disbeliefs
False prophets and deceivers
Shall swing from the trees

Soon the dawn shall arise
For all the opressed to arm
A chariot of thunder shall be seen
And bronze horns shall sound the alarm

Fists will raise like hammers
To a cloudy black sky
Bonds and chains fall to the ground

Children of all slaves
Stand united and proud
All people of bondage shall triumph
And live by the sign of...

Blood Fire Death

The moment is chosen
The Battlefield is bare
Take now thy stand people
The true ones don't fear

Now choose your weapons
And fall in the line
Choose well your colours
And follow the sign

Blood for all tears shed
And Fire for hate
Death for what shall become
All false ones fate

The standard bearer is chosen
And the day has just begun
Shadows growing long by the rising
Of the awakening sun

Fists raise like hammers
To a clear sunny sky
Bonds and chains fallen to the ground

Children of all slaves
Now united and proud
All people of bondage now triumph
And live by the sign of...

Blood Fire Death

Children of all slaves
Unite be proud
Rise out of darkness and pain

A chariot of thunder and gold
Will come loud
And a warrior of thunder and rain

With hair as white as snow
Hammer of steel
To set you free of your chains

And to lead you all
Where horses run free
And the souls of the ancient ones reign



I think it means you should never give up a struggle, no matter how hard it is. Simple, common message, but incredibly well expressed.

Stratohawk, I love that HIGH FLIGHT poem. I remember as a child every TV station would begin&end their day with that poem. I was touched by it even then.
I imagine it holds great meaning for you as it is about pilots. Did you research the history of HIGH FLIGHT? The author was a UK soldier(pilot) who was killed in battle in WWII, wasn't he?

Really? And do you know why? For me it's hard to imagine that EVERY TV-station does the same thing.

Yes, that's true. It was a you American pilot who flew for the Royal Air Force in World War II. On one day he flew a new experimental version of the Spitfire, and got up till 30.000 feet. After that impression he wrote that poem and sent it to his parents. It's really really touching.
I just have to correct that he died in a crash with another RAF-plane. But:Yes, he was a fighter pilot in WWII and defended the Island against the German attacks.

I dont know but the songs "A Million Light Years Away" "Forever" "Infinity" "Replica" and "Sing in Silence" always get me... completely drawn to those songs lyrics

the lyrics of Coldplay's "Til Kingdom Come". Really the best ones that describe my feelings that I have concerning this very special girl...

Coldplay - Til kingdom come

Steal my heart and hold my tongue
I feel my time, my time has come
Let me in, unlock the door
I never felt this way before

And the wheels just keep on turning
The drummer begins to drum
I don’t know which way i’m going
I don’t know which way i’ve come

Hold my head inside your hands
I need someone who understands
I need someone, someone who hears
For you i’ve waited all these years

For you i’d wait til kingdom come
Until my day, my day is done
And say you’ll come and set me free
Just say you’ll wait, you’ll wait for me

In your tears and in your blood
In your fire and in your flood
I hear you laugh, I heard you sing
I wouldn’t change a single thing

And the wheels just keep on turning
The drummers begin to drum
I don’t know which way i’m going
I don’t know what i’ve become

For you i’d wait til kingdom come
Until my days, my days are done
Say you’ll come and set me free
Just say you’ll wait, you’ll wait for me
Just say you’ll wait, you’ll wait for me
Just say you’ll wait, you’ll wait for me

I really shouldn't post this here, but well, if anyone feels like translating it, go ahead...

It just talks about having to struggle on your own again the adversities of life until the end. Yes, nothing special, but because of the way in which it was written, very few songs relate to how I feel as much as this one, so I really love it.

Enciende la hoguera (Martín Knye)

Las paredes se derrumban a tu alrededor,
y hay un grito en tu garganta que quiere salir.
Corazón sangrando, corazón abierto,
lucha y palpita listo a dar batalla hasta el fin.
Cuando sangra el alma y los ojos lloran soledad,
cuando hay que encontrar las fuerzas donde no las hay,
cuando solo te acompaña tu libertad.

El sonido del silencio invade tu interior,
atronando tus oídos como un huracán.
Corazón sangrando, corazón abierto,
aún en la tormenta al final del camino está el sol.
Cuando todo lo que tienes se envuelve en tempestad,
cuando tu propio destino se vuelve contra ti,
siempre habrá un mañana si quieres continuar...
Solo los fuertes sobrevivirán,
como acero templado en el fuego tu alma será,
enciende la hoguera, deja que arda hasta el final.

three songs come to mind, all from "grab that gun" by The Organ. not sure why this band's lyrics & music are so important to me, but like... just one of those things. an indefinable sympathy...
also i realize they're not really poetic, but combined w/ the music they sound good :P
(these aren't the only lyrics that are meaningful, just... i'm listening to this album at the moment!)


Sinking Hearts

remember when i left you
i couldn't say your name
or other crucial things like i love you
oh, that's a shame
oh no i think i'm falling
oh no i think i'm fine
our hearts didn't come together
but i saw the two collide

i can see the hearts sinking

remember when i left you
i couldn't say your name
or other crucial things like i love you
oh, that's a shame
i don't know if you're hearing
my voice or the reprise
our hearts didn't come together
but i saw the two collide


i can see the hearts sinking
i can see the hearts sinking....



There is Nothing I can do


my neck hurts 'cause i've been cutting moons
my hands hurt 'cause i cut them from you

so someone snuck into your room
and it got back to me
now i lie here in my room
and there is nothing i can do
but cut and think about you



A Sudden Death

day after day, they go
they go to gain just a little more control
and when they took yors away
i couldn't sleep at all
i lay in bed for days

i died a sudden death
i made an awfu lmess
i didn't stand a chance
i didn't stand a chance

'cause when we were our best
i could care less if people bred themselves to death
oh, but now that you are gone
i just know that everything is wrong

don't leave me alone now...

i died a sudden death...

( Quasimodo )

Belle
C'est un mot qu'on dirait inventé pour elle
Quand elle danse et qu'elle met son corps à jour, tel
Un oiseau qui étend ses ailes pour s'envoler
Alors je sens l'enfer s'ouvrir sous mes pieds
J'ai posé mes yeux sous sa robe de gitane
A quoi me sert encore de prier Notre-Dame
Quel
Est celui qui lui jettera la première pierre
Celui-là ne mérite pas d'être sur terre
O Lucifer !
Oh ! Laisse-moi rien qu'une fois
Glisser mes doigts dans les cheveux d'Esméralda

( Frollo )

Belle
Est-ce le diable qui s'est incarné en elle
Pour détourner mes yeux du Dieu éternel
Qui a mis dans mon être ce désir charnel
Pour m'empêcher de regarder vers le Ciel
Elle porte en elle le péché originel
La désirer fait-il de moi un criminel
Celle
Qu'on prenait pour une fille de joie une fille de rien
Semble soudain porter la croix du genre humain
O Notre-Dame !
Oh ! laisse-moi rien qu'une fois
Pousser la porte du jardin d'Esméralda

( Phoebus )

Belle
Malgré ses grands yeux noirs qui vous ensorcellent
La demoiselle serait-elle encore pucelle ?
Quand ses mouvements me font voir monts et merveilles
Sous son jupon aux couleurs de l'arc-en-ciel
Ma dulcinée laissez-moi vous être infidèle
Avant de vous avoir mené jusqu'à l'autel
Quel
Est l'homme qui détournerait son regard d'elle
Sous peine d'être changé en statue de sel
O Fleur-de-Lys,
Je ne suis pas homme de foi
J'irai cueillir la fleur d'amour d'Esméralda

( Quasimodo, Frollo et Phoebus )

J'ai posé mes yeux sous sa robe de gitane
A quoi me sert encore de prier Notre-Dame
Quel
Est celui qui lui jettera la première pierre
Celui-là ne mérite pas d'être sur terre
O Lucifer !
Oh ! laisse-moi rien qu'une fois
Glisser mes doigts dans les cheveux d'Esméralda
Esméralda

Ok so you all know this one, but whatever... It relates to me.

Night Time Eclipse

If I could stay awake for awhile
it would be another morning
don't wanna fall asleep now when
everything seems so far and beyond

Walking down a familiar road
but the darkness is misleading me
I know I should feel fear inside
but still the shadows is where I wanna be

Just an ordinary day stealing all the hope away
wanting me to be the one who has dreams made of clay

My fading confused mind
creating phrases unknown

I know I should't stay awake
if I fall asleep they just might find me
Now all is so clear
I can finally proceed

My fading confused mind
creating phrases unknown

Waiting for the dawn
soon to arrive
so few options that I have
and I can use
Life's circumstances
can be so cruel
If I take a chance I just might
make the wrong move
If irony were made of strawberries, we'd all be drinking a lot of smoothies right now.

Some more...

Song: Between Love and Pain
Band: Arwen

Look through time
fell the heat on your skin
breezes're whispering a tale
remember what I say

Girl made of stone
show me your burning heart
full of feelings that an arrow crossed

I see a light shine in your eyes
and now I know... I'm not wrong!
help me to break this thin line
between love and pain

If I cry, will you feel my tears?
If you die...

Tell me why don't you have desires
and let your dreams fly with mine
then our souls will be together
finding what real love is this time

The feel of your kiss
Steals my life and my breath
I am bonding with you, this is my desire

Maybe someday I'll be far away
But my love for you will never change

I see a light shine in your eyes
and now I know... I'm not wrong!
help me to break this thin line
between love and pain

If I cry, will you feel my tears?
If you die...

Tell me why don't you have desires
and let your dreams fly with mine
then our souls will be together
finding what real love is this time

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Song: Move Along Home
Band: Edenbridge

IN THIS ILLUSIVE GAME
LATENT WORLDS ARE WAITING JUST FOR YOU
SO WON`T YOU JOIN ?
DON`T PONDER OVER THINGS THAT MIGHT BE NEW

IT`S STRONGER THAN A VIVID DREAM
IT IS THE VENTURE YOU ESTEEM
THE ART OF MAKE-BELIEVE
WHEN HOLDING LIFE IN YOUR OWN HAND
AND THERE IS NO WAY TO WITHSTAND
UNRAVEL WHAT DECEIVES

(CHORUS)
SO WHERE ARE YOU NOW ?
WHEN THERE AIN`T NO KEY
TO DOORS SO UNKNOWN IN THIS REALITY
YOUR AIM OUT OF SIGHT
WHAT`S WRONG AND WHAT`S RIGHT
IS THIS NEVER-ENDING ?
(WAY OUT)
WAY OUT OF, WE MOVE ALONG HOME
(WAY OUT)
WAY OUT OF, WE MOVE ALONG HOME

IT`S DO OR DIE
DOES SOMEONE PLAY WITH LOADED DICE IN HERE ?
ONE WITHERING GLANCE
CAN LURE INTO THE TRAP THAT`S LURKING NEAR

BEWARE OF GETTING TRIPPED UP BLIND
AND STRANGE ENCOUNTERS OF THIRD KIND
A GALANTY SHOW
IT WAS A CLOSE SHAVE OVERALL
SO MAKE A GRACEFUL EXIT`S FALL
BACK TO REALITY

(CHORUS)

(CHORUS)
If irony were made of strawberries, we'd all be drinking a lot of smoothies right now.

Alice Cooper, my favorite singer :wink: It's an old song but now I feel this as never before. This song has beautiful lyrics and music and it's very sad

Might As Well Be on Mars

The city streets are wet with rain tonight
Taxi drivers swerve from lane to lane
A lonely guitar man playin' down the hall
Midnight blues comin' through the walls
I tried to call you on the telephone
I left it off the hook
Just to hear it ring
You told me you were better off alone
I never knew that tears could stain

I'm on the roof and I'm starin' at the stars
Lookin' down at all the cars
I can see you
In the window of your favorite corner bar
But to reach you is just too far
And I might as well be on Mars

The city seems so old and grey and beat
It closes in and makes me wanna suffocate
And you just live across the street
But that's a billion miles away

You've turned my world into a dark and lonely place
Like a planet lost in space, my light is fadin'
I'd cross the universe to be right where you are
But I'm right in your backyard
And I might as well be on Mars

I might as well be on Mars
You can't see me
I might as well be the Man on the Moon
You can't hear me
Oh, can you feel me so close
And yet so far
Baby, I might as well be on Mars

Baby, I can't fly
If I could I'd come down to ya
Maybe I should try

I'm on the roof and I'm starin' at the stars
Lookin' down at all the cars
I can see you
In the window of your favorite corner bar
But to reach is just too far
And I might as well be on Mars

I love this band, the singer has a lot of energy and I love the mixing in their two albums; you can hear every instrument perfectly. And I love their melodies.

Song: Word of Truth
Band: Forgotten Tales

Life can be hard like a steel cage
If you don't know how to live it
You can be so frustrated, total rage
But deep inside you must learn it
The way of truth…

You had enough of their rules
When they tell you what to say or what to do
You had enough of their lies
When is this hell gonna end for me and you?

Honor , respect, justice and truth
Are these values long gone?
Greed, hatred, warfare and lie
It's now the only way to fade and die

The word of truth begins with you
No matter all the odds against you
The word of truth is not always easy to say
But if you try, true friends, will stay with you

Life has been always hard with you
You don't decide what is right
Learn that happiness is inside you
Nowhere else can be more bright
The way of truth…

You had enough to please every one
Be true to yourself, don't be afraid to dare
Remember that true friends are worth
Ten times someone who's pretending to care

Honor , respect, justice and truth
Are these values long gone?
Greed, hatred, warfare and lie
It's now the only way to fade and die

The word of truth begins with you
No matter all the odds against you
The word of truth is not always easy to say
But if you try, true friends, will stay with you
If irony were made of strawberries, we'd all be drinking a lot of smoothies right now.

Sometimes it makes me wonder
Sometimes it makes me question
Sometimes it makes me saddened
Always it makes me angry but...

When you can see it happening
The madness that's all around you
Nobody seems to worry
The world seems so powerless to act...

It's out of control
Blood on the world's hands
Each day a new toll

Another assassination
The same day a new creation
But what are they coming into
Security of a world that brings...

One day another killing
Somewhere there's someone starying
Another a savage raping
Meanwhile there's someone laughing at us

It's out of control
Blood on the world's hands
Each day it goes on

Brutality and aggression
Tomorrow another lesson
Expecting another air raid
Praying for a geaserfire

They say things are getting better
No need to be complacent
There's chaos across the border
And one day it could be happening to us

It's out of control
Blood on the world's hands
It's our epitaph
It's out of control
Someone should know
Blood on the world's hands
"Beneath the freezing sky arrives Winter's Verge..."

What would i give, to behold
The smile, the face of love?
You never left me
The rising sun
Will always speak your name

I can subscribe under each word of this song

Alice Cooper - Hell Is Living Without You

I can't find your face in a thousand masqueraders
You're hidden in the colors of a million other lost charaders
In life's big parade
I'm the lonliest spectator
Cuz you're gone without a trace in a sea of faceless imitators
I can't take another night
Burning inside this

Hell is living without your love
Ain't nothin' without your
Touch me
Heaven would be like hell
Is living without you

Try to walk away
When I see the time I've wasted
Starving at a feast
And all this wine I've never tasted
On my lips your memory has been stained
Is it all in vain
Tell me who's to blame

I can't take another night
Burning inside this

Hell is living without your love
Ain't nothin' without your
Touch me
Heaven would be like hell
Is living without you

Nights get longer and colder
I'm down and begging to hold ya
On my own and I feel like hell
Is living without you

Hell is living without your love
Ain't nothin' without your
Touch me
Heaven would be like hell
Is living without you

Nights get longer and colder
I'm down and begging to hold ya
On my own and I feel like hell
Is living without you

MSG

It's early morning, not quite awake
The urge is calling and I can't wait
I need you now, Oh!
Your body moves, we feel like one
You open your eyes and I feel so strong
I want you now, more than ever

You laugh when I cry
I'm beginning to see the reason why
Don't go thinking I'll never leave
'Cause you won't be laughin'
You won't believe (You better believe)

When I'm gone baby, gone
Who's gonna hold you
From dark until dawn
And who will be there
That can love you like me
When I'm gone?

Your clothes are hanging on the floor
My room is full of the night before
And the promise you made to love me forever

Oh! You can't use me
Then just up and leave
You got it wrong
You better believe
If I walk out that door
It's forever
There's no turnin' back

When I'm gone baby, gone
Who will you turn to
When you need someone
Who will be there to love you
Do what I do
When I'm gone..

Stratovarius

"Forever"

I stand alone in the darkness
the winter of my life came so fast
memories go back to my childhood
to days I still recall

Oh how happy I was then
there was no sorrow there was no pain
walking through the green fields
sunshine in my eyes

I'm still there everywhere
I'm the dust in the wind
I'm the star in the northern sky
I never stayed anywhere
I'm the wind in the trees
would you wait for me forever ?


or

Heavenly

"Dust To Dust"

After the rain arise tje sunshine
And all the same I feel weak
The hereos win and never die
In all the fairy tales
Memories growin in my mind
I'm bringing it all with me away
So now i must to regain the sky
The way of light, the land of braves
The heroes win and never die
But I saw the victory
The wounds are stronger as am I
My life is over again
And I'm bleeding inside
Crawlin on the road
Leads to the paradise(the sky)
as a human as am I
rising up with head held high
cause I defeated master
the nightmares creatures
I am free
flying beyond the stars
dust to dust
(I'm) leaving with (a) human's soul
printed on my mind
the life i passed away
look the sky
you'll see me again
high up in the sky
I watch the universe
the land where I deny
is far away from earth
but I would love to remain
I bid you farewell

and

Scorpions

"Still Loving You"

Time, it needs time
To win back your love again
I will be there, I will be there
Love, only love
Can bring back your love someday
I will be there, I will be there

I'll fight, babe, I'll fight
To win back your love again
I will be there, I will be there
Love, only love
Can break down the wall someday
I will be there, I will be there

If we'd go again
All the way from the start
I would try to change
The things that killed our love
Your pride has built a wall, so strong
That I can't get through
Is there really no chance
To start once again
I'm loving you

Try, baby try
To trust in my love again
I will be there, I will be there
Love, our love
Just shouldn't be thrown away
I will be there, I will be there

If we'd go again
All the way from the start
I would try to change
The things that killed our love
Your pride has built a wall, so strong
That I can't get through
Is there really no chance
To start once again

If we'd go again
All the way from the start
I would try to change
The things that killed our love
Yes, I've hurt your pride, and I know
What you've been through
You should give me a chance
This can't be the end
I'm still loving you
I'm still loving you, I need your love
I'm still loving you

Yes, that Still Loving You-Song is still a wonderful song!

The next lines have I written after a party... It reflects all my feelings and trouble inside of my heart...


I have seen a million faces
but I hadn't seen your eyes
I have been on million traces
but yours wasn't in the sand

I kept all my memories in a fragile shell
it seems to be unbreakable a point of no return
I had to keep my walk on through this hell
truth has brought me back what I've never earnt

when the sun goes down and the lights turn on
and the streets where glittering in the snow
I was a man so blind so strong with a palpitation
but my strength suddenly has been blowed (away)

coldness reigns on the streets
emptiness is in my mind
on the way to the creek
the source has been find

wrapped in a white curtain
so far – so certain
scared from a smile so close
so close – too close

Will you ever return on me
on ice and snow, on heat and sun
Will you ever spend a smile to me
in the darkness and the night, in the sun and the light
Will you ever give me what I ever want to have
next time

and when I don't get all these things I miss
I have to wait until heaven will opens its gate for me….


Would be interesting for me what you think about it
you can't kill my dreams
you can't kill my spirit
I was born to be FREE!

Dream Theater - Space-Dye Vest

Falling through pages of Martens on angels
Feeling my heart pull west
I saw the future dressed as a stranger
love in a space-dye vest

Love is an act of blood and I'm bleeding
a pool in the shape of a heart
Beauty projection in the reflection
Always the worst way to start

Now that you're gone I'm trying to take it
Learning to swallow the rage
Found a new girl I think we can make it
as long as she stays on the page

This is not how I want it to end
And I'll never be open again

There's no one to take my blame
if they wanted to
There's nothing to keep me sane
and it's all the same to you
There's nowhere to set my aim
so I'm everywhere
Never come near me again
do you really think I need you

I'll never be open again, I could never be open again.
I'll never be open again, I could never be open again.

And I'll smile and I'll learn to pretend
And I'll never be open again
And I'll have no more dreams to defend
And I'll never be open again
Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated ~desu

Alice Cooper

"Only Women Bleed"

Man's got his woman to take his seed
He's got the power - oh
She's got the need
She spends her life through pleasing up her man
She feeds him dinner or anything she can
She cries alone at night too often
He smokes and drinks and don't come home at all

Only women bleed
Only women bleed
Only women bleed

Man makes your hair gray
He's your life's mistake
All you're really lookin' for is an even break
He lies right at you
You know you hate this game
He slaps you once in a while and you live and love in pain
She cries alone at night too often
He smokes and drinks and don't come home at all

Only women bleed
Only women bleed
Only women bleed

Only women bleed
Only women bleed
Only women bleed

Black eyes all of the time
Don't spend a dime
Clean up this grime
And you there down on your knees begging me please come
Watch me bleed.

I don't know if you do, but I find these lyrics so poetic :

Painkiller (Judas Priest) :

Faster than a bullet
Terrifying scream
Enraged and full of anger
He's half man and half machine

Rides the Metal Monster
Breathing smoke and fire
Closing in with vengeance soaring high

He is the Painkiller
This is the Painkiller

Planets devastated
Mankind's on its knees
A saviour comes from out the skies
In answer to their pleas

Through boiling clouds of thunder
Blasting bolts fo steel
Evils going under deadly wheels

He is the Painkiller
This is the Painkiller

Faster than a lazer bullet
Louder than an atom bomb
Chromium plated boiling metal
Brighter than a thousand suns

Flying high on rapture
Stronger free and brave
Nevermore encaptured
They've been brought back from the grave

With mankind ressurrected
Forever to survive
Returns from Armageddon to the skies

He is the Painkiller
This is the Painkiller
Wings of steel Painkiller
Deadly wheels Painkiller
Toutes choses étant égales, par ailleurs, la solution la plus simple est toujours la meilleure.

Great song:


Sentenced - No One There


The axe, the bottle and the rope
The feeling there really is no more hope
The thought of the great unknown
And facing it alone
The dark, the silent and the cold
The feeling I have come to the end of my road
Yes, these are the things I spend
My remaining moments with

And the wind blows through my heart
Shivers me one last time
As I now reach out in the dark
No one there


Why did it have to be so hard
For us to live our lives
Again I reach out in the dark in despair

The desperation and the snow
The feeling of finally coming back home
The melancholy and the hole in the soil so hard and cold

And the wind blows through my heart
Shivers me one last time
As I now reach out in the dark
No one there


Your love for me, my love for you
Things we somehow managed to lose
Now there´s only the ruthless wind
To blow right through
It freezes my heart, my desperate heart
It freezes my heart, my desperate heart
It freezes my heart, my desperate heart
To think we both will die alone

And the wind blows through my heart
Shivers me one last time
As I now reach out in the dark
No one there
Spamming is serious business!

@Dave: great song indeed.

A song i find beautiful and romantic, one of the best i've heard.

Timo Kotipelto - Beauty Has Come

"Life can't be measured in gold
But in the feelings that you hold
With all your hopes and all your fears
there's so much to share
She always let her beauty shine
It was something so divine
I could lose myself in her eyes
and the wind in her hair

She comes to me in my dream
More beautiful than I've ever seen
And whispers words of love and hope
into my ear I don't want her to go away
She tells me she would like to stay
As I see her wipe away a lonely tear

Time cannot take away her grace
I can still see her face
It's been carved in my heart, buried deep
I just wait until the night
When she and I unite
She will be all mine as long as I'm asleep

She comes to me in my dream
More beautiful than I've ever seen
And whispers words of love and hope into my ear
I don't want her to go away
She tells me she would like to stay
As I see her wipe away a lonely tear"
Olen tyytyväinen...Onpa kiva tavata...
