SET ME FREE (FROM YESTERDAY) Your eyes donít lie, they try to tell me why Your eyes canít hide tThe way you feel inside Your words are kind meant to ease my mind But your eyes donít lie and baby Iím not blind Your heartís grown cold and your storyís getting old But Iím the fool for listening to the lies you told Itís the same sad song where it all goes wrong I guess thatís when we find out where we all belong So let me go ... Now ... Right away Baby, set me free ... From yesterday I donít wanna wait, itís already too late Iíll never understand what turned our love to hate No turning back time on a love so blind I just gotta run and leave it all behind Itís time for me to go, Iíll find another road Donít matter anymore that you choose to lose I gave it all I had and it wasnít all bad Iíll find better place for all the dreams I have So let me go ... Now ... Right away Baby, set me free ... From yesterday So let me go ... Now ... Right away Baby, set me free ... From yesterday So let me go ... Now ... Right away Baby, set me free ... From yesterday THE CURSE In the foothills of the mountains Beneath a dark and clearing sky Thereís a face carved in the hillside That I seemed to recognize Some say itís a warrior king Who died there long ago But I havenít seen it written So I canít tell how they know Between the blessing and the curse The situationís worse Thereís no place called in between In any holy word Iíve seen And I will take my lead From each and every morning verse My mindís made up, I gave it all up The blessing beats the curse The heathen gather on the hill Their rituals to perform Blinded by their hatred They miss the coming storm Holy spirit of perception Keep me safe in your protection The victory is ours this night Through your mighty resurrection Between the blessing and the curse The situationís worse Thereís no place called in between In any holy word Iíve seen And I will take my lead From each and every morning verse My mindís made up, I gave it all up The blessing beats the curse I CRY ALONE What can I do when Iím so far from you Do I try to pretend itís not real Out here alone, so far from home Should I try to deny how I feel Lovers and others Holding hands in the park Missing your kiss Now my world is so dark No one to run to No one can take your place I cry alone and thatís how it has to be I find myself here with nothing but memories I cry alone, the sound of an angels sigh I cry alone, every time we say good-bye I really donít like being here on my own Iím tired of spending so much time on my own Hoping and dreaming, awaiting the day Iím finally coming home Just as life has no sequel For the atheist heart Our love has no equal Even when weíre apart Thereís no need to run No one can take your place I cry alone and thatís how it has to be I find myself here with nothing but memories I cry alone, the sound of an angels sigh I cry alone, every time we say good-bye I know you hear my cry from such a distance You feel my tears fall on your heart Sweet memories, the slender difference Between together and apart I cry alone and thatís how it has to be I find myself here with nothing but memories I cry alone, the sound of an angels sigh I cry alone, every time we say good-bye I cry alone, oh thatís how it has to be I find myself here with nothing but memories I cry alone, the sound of an angels sigh I cry alone, every time we say good-bye I cry alone I cry alone I cry alone I cry alone KATRINE Ground zero, eleventh hour Out of ideas, out of power I heard a voice inside cry out ďwhy meĒ? Stone cold, wanna run away Canít face another day Fighting something I canít even see In the end Iím a simple man Trying hard to understand Why you would take Sweet innocence away The dark, plain and simple fact I donít know how to act The only thing I know to do is pray Katrine ... I donít wanna have to let you go Katrine ... I just wanna sit and watch you grow All these tears and all these fears Will they ever disappear Katrine ... I need you here Then to my restless sleep Came a new voice strong & deep Saying, ďson, Iím gonna take this pain awayĒ Into my endless night The voice came in a flash of light ďYour love will live to see another dayĒ Katrine ... I didnít have to let you go Katrine ... Now I get to sit and watch you grow All these tears and all these fears Have finally disappeared Katrine ... Thank god you here Katrine ... I didnít have to let you go Katrine ... Now I get to sit and watch you grow All these tears and all these fears Have finally disappeared Katrine ... I didnít have to let you go Katrine ... Now I get to sit and watch you grow All these tears and all these fears Have finally disappeared Katrine ... I need you here Oh Katrine ... Katrine ... Thank god you here FASTER Faster than the speed of light No fear of death Iíve been working day and night To be faster than the rest Three steps to victory, ainít gonna stop I got the power to take me Straight to the top And the ladies in waiting Will just have to wait I got a date with destiny And I canít be late Their hearts are beating And their wheels are spinning Forty-four eyes focussed On the dream of winning But when the lights go out Thereís only one way home And thatís alone Their hearts are beating And their wheels are spinning Forty-four eyes focussed On the dream of winning But when the lights go out Thereís only one way home And thatís alone Their hearts are beating And their wheels are spinning Forty-four eyes focussed On the dream of winning But when the lights go out Thereís only one way home Their hearts are beating And their wheels are spinning Forty-four eyes focussed On the dream of winning But when the lights go out Thereís only one way home And thatís alone When the lights go out Thereís only one way home And thatís alone SLIPPINí AWAY (THE LOVER'S CURSE) This time it hurts a little bit more This time it feels much too real This time the painís more intense than before And I donít like how I feel We had these bad days once in a while They usually came with the rain This time itís different, the emptiness here Where only my dreams remain Itís slipping away ... Further and further every day Itís slipping away ... This heartacheís not going away Now I really miss you, thatís certainly true And I donít know what to do If we live and we learn tell me which way to turn ĎCause all of my future was you When something so great starts to stumble and break It kinda shifts to reverse Something so good at first takes a turn for the worse Welcome to the loverís curse Itís slipping away ... Further and further every day Itís slipping away ... This heartacheís not going away Donít point your pointless existence at me I like it here, itís where I wanna be You took my life and you threw it away Let me be ... Itís slipping away ... Further and further every day Itís slipping away ... This heartacheís not going away Itís slipping away ... Further and further every day Itís slipping away ... This heartacheís not going away Itís slipping away ... Further and further every day Itís slipping away ... This heartacheís not going away
THE END OF NEVER I donít believe anything I donít believe anyone Iím still trying to figure out where I belong I donít believe a thing Iíve heard I donít believe a single word ĎCause when you say that itís alright It all goes wrong They say you canít please everyone But I donít need anyone It doesnít matter what I do Itís never good enough for you So no, no, no, I wonít go, go, go Down that same old road forever Njet, nein, no, I wonít my sell my soul Not before the end of never No, never It doesnít matter what you say I donít hear you anymore Iím listening to the music that I get for free I donít believe your stupid lies I see the truth with my own eyes But I donít think you realize youíre losing me I donít need you to waste my time Iíve had it with this pantomime Iíve got a lotta shit to do that donít include you So no, no, no, I wonít go, go, go Down that same old road forever Njet, nein, no, I wonít my sell my soul Not before the end of never I donít need you to waste my time Iíve had it with this pantomime Iíve got a lotta shit to do that donít include you So no, no, no, I wonít go, go, go Down that same old road forever Njet, nein, no, I wonít my sell my soul Not before the end of never No, no, no, I wonít go, go, go Down that same old road forever Njet, nein, no, I wonít my sell my soul Not before the end of never No, never BEYOND THE STARZ The fearful storm will break And all the earth will shake And evil hearts will pay for their mistakes You knew this day would come Now thereís nowhere left to run And now you know thereís nothing left to say And no oneís gonna sleep tonight Thereís terror in the wind You cannot know just what it is When it will end or where it begins The gods of peace are angry now You pushed their patience much too far And you can never be prepared For this is power from beyond the stars He said he would return But you refused to learn You had your chance but now youíre gonna burn This final battle you canít win Against the countless warriors of the king The multitude is following your fall And mine will be whitest horse Carrying his mighty sword And if you try to take my life from me Youíll only speed my holy destiny You had your time, youíll have no more The king will rule this killing floor Instead of choosing peace you chose your war You chose your war The faithful and the king Have stopped the suffering And the conquerors will sing in endless peace The lion and the lamb Fulfilled the master plan And finally the world is on its knees Oh the gods of peace are silent now Complete their victory This universe will join as one To grasp the enemy The one who died is now alive To free the chosen few And there's a room for me and you Beyond the stars Beyond the stars (AT) THE LAST MINUTE Walking around with my head held down Like Iím looking for hope in my shoes Expecting to see my obituary At the top of the 5 o'clock news I was mad, I was sad, I really felt bad With no reason I could easily find My wheels were off track I could only look back To see that I was wasting my time Self-pity and sorrow, today and tomorrow I canít find a friend so this must be the end But at the last minute my eyes were opened At the last minute it all came right I received more than My heart had hoped for At the last minute I saw the light In the city of light there are Mountains of hope With a valley of peace in between Thereís a river of love Running right through its heart I felt like I was living a dream Life without trouble, a day without end Hope everlasting and a genuine friend It may be hard to believe But I know that itís right Itís all there in the city of light Self-pity and sorrow, confusion and doubt Beginning to wonder if Iíd ever break out But at the last minute my eyes were opened At the last minute it all came right I received more than My heart had hoped for At the last minute I saw the light At the last minute my eyes were opened At the last minute it all came right I received more than My heart had hoped for At the last minute I saw the light SOMEWHERE (IN PARADISE) There has to be a rainbow somewhere There has to be a bright light Shining in this dark world somewhere There has to be a new day coming There has to be a white knight On this sad horizon somewhere And if you think Iím only dreaming Climb up on my wings and fly Iíll take you on a secret journey To a place I know above the sky Iíll take you to paradise Where all of our dreams can fly To paradise Beyond the moon and the midnight sky You and I, baby you and I In paradise Somewhere in paradise The road behind us leads to nowhere We gotta trust our love To take us in a new direction I think I know a way to do it I think I know someone who can help us Make the right connection Thereís nothing you can lose by trying So climb up on my wings and fly Iíll take you on a secret journey To a place I know above the sky Iíll take you to paradise Where all of our dreams can fly To paradise Beyond the moon and the midnight sky You and I, baby you and I In paradise Somewhere in paradise Somewhere in paradise Somewhere in paradise Somewhere you and I Only you and I FILL YOUR HEAD (WITH ROCK) Fill your head with rock And roll it down into your soul Feel the power and the passion Thatís impossible to hold A fantasy, a symphony A party that wonít stop Can only happen when you Fill your head with rock Do you like it hard Do you like it hot Come on and take a long hard Look at what weíve got Coz weíre live fire and Youíre in our sights Let the show begin We were born to fight So are you ready - yeah me too
