all Embracing lyrics

Vers 1:

Octagon sided summersun blinded my eyes
Though overwhelming curiosity itched in me
Exhausted arms trembled and touched a tree
Familiar senses hungering for more

A dry silence fell to pass by a feary whisper
This little maid seemed as helpless and lost as I
Then shimmering words asked for a favour
Lay down with me tall stranger

Simple words unable to reach my tounge
Songless birds never be the same without
Ruby hearted from then and ever after

Vers 2:
Wet grass met my naked and frozen skin
Their purple clouds was like ours used to be
And the distant lovely laughter helps me remember
It hurts me to say I'll never see them again

Repeat Pre-chorus
Repeat chorusback to top
Chased by a shadow
It' s hiding from daylight inside the eastern crypt
You have seen him and shivered with his presence
He' s a killer but yet not very unlike me
A bi-product of a dimensional journey

Vers 1:
Something tells me I' ve seen him somewhere before
Maybe I lost a part of myself inside the rift
Flashing fragments turned into place
Incomplete as he needs the final piece, "it's me you want"

Chased by a shadow
How can we possible escape
Try to keep your heads low
But he already knows my second take

Gelhein... Who is calling me by my true name?

Vers 2:
How come the shadows grow before me
Caught in their paralyzing embrace
Maybe it's time to turn myself in
But I can't just give up and write down: The End


Chasing the shadow
I take back what was already mine
And there's nothing left for you
New signs form in the heaven

( Gelhein... A telepathic voice still calls me by my true name )back to top
Precious discovery
There is something I have wanted to tell you
Though I'm afraid to let it fall into the wrong hands
An endless burden is upon my shoulders, it tears me apart
Hurry, I'm losing the words and the strength in my voice

Vers 1:
The last survivor from a parallell dimension
Chosen to prevail and remember what once was
All memories are at place but it's uncomfortable
To be so close an overfilled energy source

There is something I've discovered beyond the shining stars
Your wildest dream was never close to the beauty
-Is it as precious as our burning sun
-Sweet words from one we judged as a threat

Vers 2:
What about you, where will you turn
It was so easy to harm, but takes alot to repay
A touch of my fingertip can heal a withered flower
But your world I'm unable to recreate

Repeat Chorus:

There is something I have wanted to show you
Though I was afraid to see it fall into the wrong hands
But with the time it slipped away from my own…Why?
You wouldn't believe in my precious discovery…Why?back to top
Vers 1:
I've made a tough decision
We must make sure that mankind will survive
They' ve taken everything, but this sacred promise
Though this might be the last day for me with you
I have to make you sleep and dream of someone else
Seal your past, so you won't be able to tell them

Chorus 1:
I open a rift into the unknown
And take a silent walk, through time
Where ends this colorful journey
Will I ever see the curtain fall

Vers 2:
The dream is strongar than ever
There is unchained magic in the air
It's right before me on a transparant plane
Juggling with a liquid substance
Is it a final test I have to break through
Which way am I supposed to chose

Repeat chorus:

Suddenly I'm able to hear my own steps
But still unable to sort out what's far and what's near
And when the unseen walls I pass becomes concrete
Is it all in vain, am I about to spend my time with time

Vers 3 :
I made a tough decision a long time ago
After I realized we were falling apart
Though it was the last day for me with you
I made you sleep and dream of someone else
It's blocking out the truth, buried deep in you

Repeat chorus:back to top
