I awoke the beast I awoke the beast Sleeping lions at my feet You were greater than the sky And all the tears I was afraid I’d cry Everything ends Silver grows hollow in the end And I feel like the wind Feel like a half-formed thing Lie by my side I will not speak, close your eyes Why did we never say That I want you to stay? And everything ends Silver grows hollow in the end And I feel like the wind Feel like a half-formed thing If you could fight my fear Then you could have me If I could lay to rest All these ghosts that haunt me If we could find a path Through our adversaries Then we might make it back And the wind might carry me I awoke the beast Sleeping lions at my feet You were greater than the sky And all the tears I was afraid I’d cry

Are you wounded? Are you wounded Did I hurt you bad? I can’t say it again How it makes me sad I got scared and I threw it all away Now, I must pay Do you miss me Like I miss you? Do you think Of all the things we’d do? Cause you were like A fire in my life Now, I’ve turned out the light And I keep trying to, walk away, but I don’t want to And you keep saying that we’re through But how can that be true? Are you moving on Without me there? Do you no longer really care? Cause I want you More than you can know Now, I‘ve let you go And you keep saying that we’re through But how can that be true? I don’t know where everything went wrong I only know That you’re the one And all the things That used to hold me back They’re no longer A fact And I keep trying to, walk away, but I don’t want to And you keep saying that we’re through But how can that be true?
3.
Cold winds blow Cold winds blow in the place that you live Oh I waited for you, in the place I said I would Wandered, I wandered waking through the night All that I saw was the dying of the light I, I'm a ship that’s lost its way I’m the breaking of a wave On a shore that has no memory Of me at all You, you’re a galaxy of stars Jupiter and Mars Oh, everyone applauds As you pass by Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh Time oh time is the thing that I fear most As I wait for you and the daylight turns to dusk Seasons changed with the passing of the sun And I wait for you as I have always done I, I'm a ship that’s lost its way I’m the breaking of the wave On a shore that has no memory Of me at all You, you’re a harbor with a light Shining within sight I try to make my way to you Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

Gust of wind 03:28
Gust of Wind You, you cleared the sky You took the pain, out of my eyes You, like a gust of wind You opened up my heart, I let you in And oh, the mystery remains Of what becomes of these golden days And oh, who can say Where the mystery will take us one day You, you threw me down A rope with which I could climb You, you saw in me A light that I could no longer see And oh, the mystery remains Of what becomes of these golden days And oh, who can say Where the mystery will take us one day You, you blew away Your gentle breeze, it didn't stay We, will we ever know Where the mystery longs us to go?
5.
Harmony 03:09
Harmony I always loved the way you smiled And I always loved your tired eyes And you always thought that I was the one And that we’d waited for far too long I always thought that you would stick around I always thought that you would be my guide We didn’t know, we didn’t think that it would break And now you’re gone and its late You’re not the kind to move a mountain Oh no, you’re not the kind to let someone back in So, I can knock, lie at your feet But you will not admit defeat I always thought that you would stick around I always thought that you would be my guide We didn’t know, we didn’t think that it would break And now you’re gone and its late

Fire in snow 04:36
Fire in Snow What can I do? Oh, something has changed What can I say? Oh, it’s like a wave Came over me Like fire in snow Swallowed me whole Warmed me through What can I do? Oh, something has changed It’s what I want It scares me the same Came over me Like fire in snow Swallowed me whole Warmed me through What can I do? I’m glowing inside I’ll leave the dark I’ll go outside Came over me Like fire in snow Swallowed me whole Warmed me through
7.
Kite 04:44
Kite You are like the sun And I’m the moon Seasons come And go again You took me higher Than I’ve ever been We’re like the road That leads to the hills Fire burns Come, let’s burn You are tied To your shore I’m like a kite I rise and fall Fire burns Come, let’s burn We’ll never know What we could have been You seek without And I seek within Fire burns Come, let’s burn Oooh, oooh, ooh ooh
8.
Wounded Soldier Wounded soldier I wait for you Through the weeks and days that pass Through this uncertainty that lasts Wounded soldier We find each other In the night, it takes us by surprise Battle weary in your eyes Wounded soldier Precious warrior Rest your head on me and close your eyes Lie your head down next to mine
9.
It is a story I saw your face In the newspaper again They were talking about About something you’d said But I want to kiss you Like in a movie you’ve seen We’d be talking together And then you’d reach for me And I saw your face It’s a face that I know It’s the same but it’s different But I can’t say how We talked about A book I had read They’d made a film But it was no good It is a story Of two people who fall In love with each other When they’re really old Oh I want to know you In a way that no one Has ever known you And I think that I can Oh you once told me I was your kind of girl Oh did you mean it Cause I couldn’t tell And there was a time When it was just you and me Now when I see you You’re on TV But I want to kiss you Like in a movie you’ve seen We’d be talking together And then you’d reach for me And I see your face It’s the face that I know It’s the same but it’s different But I can’t say how
10.
I let myself be led Oh, I let myself be led Oh, I let myself be bled Look for the shadow inside Always there, always blind Oh, I find myself on the edge Been here before, oh I confess Pulled by a power inside Taken by something I can’t fight And your eyes, Find me in the night And why, do you keep coming back? And why, do I keep coming back? Oh, your eyes Shining in the night Oh, I let myself be led Oh, I let myself be bled Oh, I let myself be led Oh, I let myself be bled
11.
You are the land Oh I waited for winter Now I wait for spring It’s all that I can do This waiting And it started with a whisper Ended with a shout The pen may be mighty But words can cut like knives So row me gently And row me wide For I am a sailor And you are the land You are the land And if love is a gambler and passion is a thief Let’s roll the dice over Let’s steal what we need Oh, you fear for the future Fear for the past Hold on to what you don’t want Let go of what can last Oh row me gently And row me wide For I am a sailor And you are the land You are the land Oh I waited for winter Now I wait for spring II’ve tried but I cannot Give up believing So row me gently And row me wide For I am a sailor And you are the land You are the land
