Lyrics:

 

2. THE SECRET FLAME

 

on this side of the line

we hide from paradise

and run to hell

patiently sip your wine

and shelter secret skin

and paint a rebel-yell

 

at this chance in time

we fear our heaven

and run like hell

make a wish and you will find

let old glory win

and shout a rebel-yell

 

so take hold of the flame

for the fire in your eyes

hold the secret flame

for the fire to rise

 

so give peace a chance

it’s lurking in the night

sailing in the dark

lighten up and dance

a solitary soul

to catch a glowing spark

 

repeat chorus

 

communication breakdown

I’ve heard too many times

I can´t hold back

As the bell begins to chime

I feel the end is near

I know it seems so clear

my time is all used up

I know my time is up

 

so take hold of the flame

for the fire in your eyes

hold the secret flame

for the fire to rise

take hold of the flame

I paint it on the wall

hold the secret flame

can’t you hear me call

 

can you hear me calling you?

 

 

4. DREAMING

 

…Silver moon lights the night

Where are you?…

 

Minutes look like hours

Hours of wasted time

I´m tired of waiting for nothing

People want me to believe

In a true love that will last

I’m dreaming of the one

 

…Morning light awakes the day

Where are you?…

 

Minutes look like hours

Hours of wasted time

I´m tired of waiting for nothing

People want me to believe

In a true love that will last

I’m dreaming of the one

 

…The sun goes down again…

 

Minutes look like hours

Hours of wasted time

I´m tired of waiting for nothing

People want me to believe

In a true love that will last

I’m dreaming of the one

 

Minutes look like hours

Hours of wasted time

I’m so tired of waiting

I want to believe

In a love that will last

I am going for the one

 

Where are you?

 

 

 6. Stronger

 

young boy sits in his chair

a guitar in his hands

thinks he can conquer the world

everybody is his friend

but hope is not enough

and talent just won’t do

don’t be a fool  anymore

dreams just don’t come true

 

keep your feet on the ground, don’t build castles in the air

set your sights so high but know:  in this world that nothing‘s fair

 

she stands by the window

looking down the long runway

hoping that he´ll return

maybe even come back today

but wanting it is never enough

it´s something that just won’t do

it is so  cruel sometimes but

dreams just don’t come true

solo

Maybe you’re trapped by emotion

And you feel that they will last

It is over, so say goodbye

Don´t be a prisoner of the past

Doing what you always did

made everything stay the same

you´ve got to be so much stronger now

You’ve got to really change the game

 

keep your feet on the ground, don’t build castles in the air

set your sights so  high but know: in this world that nothing‘s fair

hope is never enough and talent just won’t do

gotta learn the hard way now if you wanna make it through

 

you got to be a leader

where no boundaries exist

The future is wide open

For whatever tomorrow may bring

It´s not when you  fall down

But when you try to get up again

Be strong, and get stronger

Gotta hold on till the end

Solo

 

keep your feet on the ground, don’t build castles in the air

set your sights so high but know in this world that nothing‘s fair

hope is never enough and talent just won’t do

gotta learn the hard way boy if you wanna make it through

keep your feet on the ground, don’t build castles in the air

set your sights so high but know: that this life is just not fair

 

 

8. A Miracle

 

 

In the light of God

We play and sing

We cherish the moments

Of what love may bring

 

Always together

a promise made so tough

we cherish each other

as we share a life of love

 

It´s the miracle of love

Two hearts beating as one

Together till the end of time

As the rain falls from the sky

True love is a miracle

True love is a miracle

 

In the light it´s the Spirit of love

We keep moving till we get enough

See the world around us

Till understanding has found us

 

World keeps spinning round and round

Standing still until we´re found

We cherish the silence

And live a life of love

 

It´s the miracle of love

All hearts beating as one

Together till the end of time

As the rain falls from the sky

True love is a miracle

True love is a miracle

 

The look  in your eye

Is everything to me

Can´t live life without you

You´re my destiny

Let the light guide you

Let it  give you strength

Cause love will find you again and again

 

Repeat chorus

 

All hearts beating as one

The story has just begun

 

 

10. SUN SINKS LOW

 

a little cold sweat I wipe away

a sad look around, cause this is the day

deep down inside I can feel the pain

my work ain’t done, and only time remains

 

ooh when the sun sinks low

it makes me feel like I´m alone

ooh when the sun sinks low

it may be time for me to go

 

was I swimming before I drowned

maybe wasting time before I was found

little liars yeah, telling little lies

it’s all a big charade to make time fly

 

ooh when the sun sinks low

it makes me feel like I´m alone

ooh when the sun sinks low

it may be time for me to go

 

it’s so strange there’s no escape

I was I, left the hiding shape

it’s so dark and cold inside

as the sun sinks low tonight

darkness comes to take me away

every life will fall some day

 

ooh when the sun sinks low

the darkness leaves me so alone

ooh when the sun sinks low

it may be time for me to go

ooh when the sun sinks low

it makes me feel like I´m alone

ooh when the sun sinks low

it may be time for me to go

 

ooh when the sun sinks low
