In silence I dream Aroused were the memories of yesteryear Where summer's ardent kiss of love Twined hand in hand with winter's loss. Awakening from slumber The candle still flickers it's living flame A shrine to love as embers Died in me so long ago Therein chimes the hour of darkness Haziness cedes, a wraith before me appears Of iconic grandeur Twixt his fingertips he holds A gift for me, a burgeon rose Dying flower, withered with sorrow In the wisdom of his tears I foresee a mirror to my soul My waning heart, an ebon rose Paling in the shadow of Luna Whereupon her face I behold The divine revelation of sorrow For there belies a lonely fountain in ruins Where the spring of sadness trickles forth unending...

Ride the flame that burns between you Thrive on the faith that feeds you Use the pain to feel and free you try to speak the world will see you Lose all the blind ties Come from the dark and raise your eyes For fear must fade before we rise To fly and free the truth inside Use your eyes to break the lies that bind us Believe the ones we need will one day find us The chances, dreams and life fate brings remind us Each hour can cure or confine us

Come with me, to the darkened water Come with me, swim the ocean of dreams Close your eyes to the whispering tides These waters forever witness our rites You, give me purity in a world of despondance You gave me serenity when I had none Forever does not seem long enough to love you But forever is eternity with you to adore Oceanus, the sweet taste of memories upon your shores Oceanus, where we lay christened by the stars

Watch these words enchant me Allude to a further reality Removed from what I can see But I must stay on stable feet Remain in corporeality Not disappear inside a dream The will, the way To transcend the day When night's life becomes the death of day The time has come to break away Be watchful when you sleep Don't hide in a dream There's always more to life than there might seem...

Huair a eireas a ghrian air cearcall nan speur Tha maduinn bhreagh air a breiith Chi mi dealt a soillseachadh duileagan nan rosan Solus na grein air na clachan bho chian Eioin na cabhanaich ri seinn dhomh an oran eala Fonnis milse chluichear a riamh rim chluais Craobhan beltein ag aomadh gu socair san tla-ghaoth chubhraidh Bho sgail a blath sgothan caidilidh mi gu siorruith Na gul air mo shonsa na biodh do chridhe bho dheoir Tha mi nis mar aon ris an talamh oigheil s lom far ann a failas a bhan dhe ni mi dannsa Air dian ghaothan, air iteag, ag iaradh dhachaidh

Tell me when the feeling died All the different times we tried In fire of passion we burnt our bridges Consumed conflicting final wishes Kiss away the tears we cried The courage of our last goodbye...
