Letras de The turn of the lights lyrics


Liberty

Story of life
Story of fate
Something I could’ve done and now I feel
I’ve lost myself in time

A picture of those
Beyond control
Hearts messed up, abide,
And so I hear
Spirits weep out loud

Living for my next step
Swinging across the border line
I wanna climb those stairs
And reach the top now

You brought me what I need
Addictive heroin
You sucked my heart, still you want everything
Melting flesh and bone
I don’t know what you are
I don’t know where I’ve been
Just look behind and see the shadow
Of a one-day-promise

Come for a ride
In the kingdom of light
Most of us don’t care to sign the deal
When evil hangs around

Heading for my last step
Running across the border line
I wanna stand and stare…

You brought me what I need
Addictive heroin
You sucked my heart, still you want everything
Melting flesh and bone
Whole days and nights in vain
Unplug and mute the pain
These matted eyes now miss the last glare
Of a one-day-promise

Course of Life

Northern lights dance in the air
Nature paints its scenes
Haunting the winter sky
The wild is so vast,
The air quiet and still
Today a new sun will rise

We’ll be together when the time come around
We’ll save our prayers and never say farewell
Far becomes close;
Scary, divine
A sudden blaze reveals the course of life

I walk in the night
Counting the stars, in silence
With tears in my eyes
But I’ll never surrender

We’ll be together when the time come around
We’ll save our prayers and never say farewell
Nothing to fear,
Nowhere to hide
Nobody escapes the course of life

The Turn of the Lights

As the universe expands
And high flames are burning
As the light breaks through the haze
And sunrays melt away the snow

The streams get out of control
For we don’t own life

It’s a fact: We’re born to stray
On this deadly journey
We don’ know where it begins
And nobody tells where it goes

The Wheels just roll down the road
Is there still a chance?

We’re alive – that’s all we can say
We must stay alert through the night
Side by side, let’s keep hand in hand
And wait for the turn of the lights…
The turn of the lights!

Gaza

Someday I
Will feel enough
To remember
What’s gone
And I will live enough
To be humming
This song

Someday I will
Rejoin your soul
When fire stars
Are falling down on me

Let the clouds
And let the rain
Pour the tears down
Today

Let the heart
And let the pain
Flow away
Away

Feel what is over
Feel what is dead
Your smile forever will live

Like a scar
So many say
It will never fade away
Like a rainbow in the darkest sky

Someday I will be
Together with you
Someday I will leave
This world behind
For good

Like a scar
So many say
It will never fade away
Like a rainbow in the darkest sky

Someday I will be
Together with you
Someday I will leave
This world behind
For good

Stop!

You declare wars in your head
You desert them all instead
Every Pulse that pumps your veins
Just reminds you of the weight
All over you…

Simply for a little joy
You neglect and then destroy
The key questions in your mind

When your self-esteem is low
When you find nowhere to go

Stop!… the world can’t wait!
You won’t find a crystal ball
Throughout the haze

It’s about time
To quit that maze
Nothing justifies your pain
For there’s no one else to blame

Except for you…

On your own

When a shade follows my footsteps at night
That could be you
I descend to the riverside
As I’m staring at the blackened water flow
I sense you getting close
I know you’re getting close

I could reach my hand
And fool my heart one more time
I could stick to what remains…
It’s helpless: our future is behind us!

– You say that you go, you don’t go
And you never leave a choice
– You say that you need, you don’t need
Though there’s urgency in your voice

You’ve been searching for happiness
But emptiness you’ve found

You think you belong – no, you don’t
You’re still living on your own

Is there a future for me?
Is there a hope?
Sometimes illusions, they drown
And dreams are gone with the flood

Unreplaceable

In the start, light had been made
There were rainbows in the air
In a place we all belong

It’s so curious how it swaps
Like the pieces of a play
It depends on how we stand

Day after day
How we care for each word we say,
Each move we make…

You pretend you’re in control
That you sit so high above
But I prevail without you
When at night you call my name
All your tears roll down in vain
You’re nor unreplaceable

We must stand
Day after day
We must care for each word we say,
Each move we make…

Oversoul

The corporations’ jaws
Are spreading all around
Invading like a plague, you can’t ignore
You’re led into a trap
They even seem to care
About your life, your health – your misery!

They need you to say
They want you to play
They will find the way into your needs
You’re scanned high and low
Cause they want to know:
– Are you plain enough to serve us?

Every time they reach their goals
You’re stabbed, but you don’t know
Can’t you sense the Oversoul?
The meaning of it all…

The blooming of a life
You’re innocent and wild
You guess you know the truth but you just don’t

That’s right when it begins:
You’ve gotta join that game!
You’re looking for respect – to be someone!

They force you to play
They lead you to crave
From now on they’ll be behind your needs
You’ll do what they say
Can’t choose your own way
Right when it’s too late to turn back

Every time they reach their goals
You’re stabbed, but you don’t know
Can’t you sense the Oversoul?
The spirit of it all…

Look around and see:
Have you lost all will to live?
Why don’t you stand and fight for your soul?

White Summit

The sight revealed before my eyes
On that very day
A sea of clouds surrounding high
The mountain summit

All so unexpected,
Falling to pieces to the ground

At first I held the shock inside
And then I woke up
I looked around and realized:
The white was red with blood

All so disconnected
When you’re striving to survive

I must go…
Over the top, to the summit
Or never know
What lies behind the white giant of snow

Step by step to the summit
I’m face to face with the giant
There’s no return…

Light-Years

Unleash the beast you used to be
Let go off, and set it free
Relieve your heart, let it breathe

Forget the place you used to know
Get ready for a miracle
Straightening the curve of the road

From this time, from this day
You’ll never be the same
Leave behind what’s insane
And let it fade away
You can still count on me
From the past, nothing remains
It’s light-years away

When you just listen to the words
From someone who wants to take hold
Of your will, of your thoughts,
Of your mind and soul

People who’ve lost their own life
Normally try to get by
Inside your world, to lead you on,
They cherish when you fall…

Sometimes

Sometimes I’m sad and lonely
Somedays because I miss you
You held me tight in your arms
As I came out of darkness

Sometimes I watch you go away
I watch you go away…
Hope you don’t cry

‘Cause in my own stories
I’m ever side by side with you
Somewhere to bind the distance
Somekind of timeless moment

Somewhen I’ll let you know
How far you’ve made me roam
Across the nights,
I hear a train
That won’t bring you back
But I’ll still wait…

I never really lost you
You never really left me
I feel our hearts as one
Every time I gaze
At the moon

Fake Plastic Trees

Her green plastic watering can
For her fake Chinese rubber plant
In the fake plastic earth
That she bought from a rubber man
In a town full of rubber plans
To get rid of itself

It wears her out, it wears her out
It wears her out, it wears her out

She lives with a broken man
A cracked polystyrene man
Who just crumbles and burns
He used to do surgery
For girls in the eighties
But gravity always wins

It wears him out, it wears him out
It wears him out, it wears him out

She looks like the real thing
She tastes like the real thing
My fake plastic love
But I can’t help the feeling
I could blow through the ceiling
If I just turn and run

It wears me out, it wears me out
It wears me out, it wears me out

If I could be who you wanted
If I could be who you wanted all the time

All the time…

I don’t believe in love

I awoke on impact
Under surveillance from the camera eye,
Searching high and low

The criminal mind found at the scene of the crime
Handcuffed and blind, I didn’t do it.

She said she loved me,
I guess I never knew
But do we ever, ever really know?
She said she’d meet me on the other side
But I knew right then, I’d never find her.

I don’t believe in love
I never have, I never will
I don’t believe in love.
It’s never worth the pain that you feel

No more nightmares, I’ve seen them all
From the day I was born, they’ve haunted my every move
Every open hand’s there to push and shove
No time for love.
It doesn’t matter.

She made a difference,
I guess she had a way,
Of making every night seem bright as day.
Now I walk in shadows, never see the light,
She must have lied ’cause she never said goodbye

I don’t believe in love
I never have, I never will
I don’t believe in love
I’ll just pretend she never was real
I don’t believe in love
I need to forget her face, I see it still
I don’t believe in love
It’s never worth the pain that you feel

No chance for contact
There’s no raison d’etre
My only hope is one day I’ll forget
The pain of knowing what can never be
With or without love it’s all the same to me.

I don’t believe in love
I never have, I never will
I don’t believe in love
I’ll just pretend she never was real
I don’t believe in love
I need to forget her face, I see it still
I don’t believe in love
It’s never worth the pain that you feel

Wings of reality

Day by day
Wheels keep turning around
And everynight
Many restless creatures
longing for the dawn
To heal away
Their eternal pain…

Hope the saints arrive
Bringng the signs
Of treasures to be found
Now we walk alone
And we’ve got to know
The secrets all around

Breaking our hearts of stone,
Tasting our lives,
Setting us free to decide…

“Wings of Reality,
Take me higher and higher
Show me the way to be
Free forever with you…
I guess I’ve found my way
Everyday growing stronger
So many words to say,
So many things to do…”

The ghosts get closer to my fears
A beast has awakened here inside…
All we don’t know, nobody knows!

… And the pay back is coming someday!!

At least a chance

Four billion faces
Are searching for their dreams
Fighting for a better way
Despite how hard it seems
Oh! Do you remember
Those words from long ago
That inspired us to progress
To make your future grow

 

Life goes on
It’s brutal lessons
We must accept
Even through the tears

 

Maybe someday
A hopeful light
We lead all the people
To live better lives
It will be
Like childhood dreams
Like cries in the silence
But I’ll have at least a change

 

Streets filled with tears
Are the picture of my life
I’ve got someone to forget
Somethings that I can’t hide

 

The rain is so cold
It cuts me like the past
And the scars deep inside me
How long will they last?

About Janus

Janus Aureus is my recently-inaugurated personal blog (written in portuguese, but with some texts in english as well). Fiore Rouge is my old (but still very active - in fact, more than Janus :P) blog (I started it back in 2005). Mentalize is a fan-made website (since 2005). if you wish to contact me for any reason, visit my blog and leave a comment OR see email above (top left) - no, my name's not Andre - actually, I'm not even a guy! LOL Long story... O Janus Aureus é meu blog pessoal - escrito em português - ainda sem muito conteúdo, pois foi começado no final de dezembro de 2011. Já o Mentalize foi aberto em 2005 e está escrito em várias línguas *rs* Privilegio o uso do inglês ali porque o pessoal estrangeiro não tem muitas informações sobre o AM. Quem quiser entrar em contato comigo por qualquer motivo, deixe um comentário nos meus blogs ou use o email que está aí em cima à esquerda (e não, eu não sou o Andre - aliás, sou mulher!).
