1. Ive Been Trying
Too many times I've been trying
Feelings I've had turned to stone
So long
I'm gone

Can't live in shame
Who is to blame
Fate broke our chain
Ain't playing games

Too many times I've been lying
Thinking of her when we touched
So long
I'm gone

2. Should I
Oh, just another bloody day
I've gone the ways they said that I should go
And now sands of time have brought decay
The hand of fate is in control

Shoud I, should I
Pretend and close my eyes:
Should I, should I
Sit in for just one more time
Should I, should I
Hold back just to survive
Should I, should I
Give in like the other times before

Oh, thousand voices calling me
To sail the seas that only I would know
I hear human sirens everywhere
Their evil tongues have turrned to stone

3. You`ll Never Know
Recalling memories of love with you
Such simple innosence of love we knew
We held each other crying tears of happiness

And then the winds of change began to blow
The voice of destiny said I must go
My tears could fill an ocean trying to forget
My love could move a mountain ever since we met

You'll never know
How much I have loved you, so
You`ll never know, just how much it took to go
But soon you won't be crying tears of loneliness

Chorus: (Unplugged version only)
You´ll always shine
Like the stars above you do

4. Both Of Us
Let me shower you with affection
There's no need for such self-protection
I feel your body melting into mine

Bound to misery
And seduction there's no need for this self-destruction
I feel you trample like a frightened child

Talkin 'bout the both of us
Don't need to cry
No one can destroy our trust
(No one can replace your touch)
And we know why  
- back to top -
5. Stay
Now, I have found
that the girl I love can't take the downsides
I wish you'd talk it all out for me to understand it
You always say that the time is wrong to talk about it
I don't know how to go on If you don't drop your defenses

Can't keep running away
Just say what you are looking for
'Cause you know if you don't
Heartache is what you are heading for

Now is the time, no one else is gonna to do the talking
If you just can't take a stand
You might be better off walking

6. Blood On The Land
Ooo, do you feel the danger
You, cannot fool the maker

Looking up to the sky
Hard to breathe it burns my eyes
Desert land, poison rain
Can't sit back, when I know who's to blame

Ooo, do you feel the danger

Blackened tides
On the sand
Still they raping our holy land
In our eyes so afraid
Is our future the price they have paid?

Blood on the land
Blood on their hands
Ready to witness the fall of man
Hiding their eyes
Telling us lies
Ready to shatter the dream of man

Ooo, do you feel the danger
You, cannot fool the maker

They will take all they can
Then pretend they don't understand
For the lies that they tell
All I know is I'll See you in hell

7. Shot Down
Here I am looking for answers
Driven hard with no thought of surrender
If I knew where I could find them
I could spare you the act of a madman

Shot down
Scared to fall
Where do I belong
Shot down
Can't recall
Where did I go wrong

Winds of war, holy disaster
If I could I would fight it with laughter
Breathing hard is what I've been doing
I just hope that no evil is brewing  
- back to top -
8. You`re Not The Only... I Know
I should go
Even though
I've forgiven all the lies
That you told
Scared to have you back again
People just don't change
After all I know if I pretend
I'd be lying just the same

Now you're wondering why
Things did not turn out right
Got to change your style
You're not the only I know

Long ago
Should have known
You were young and scared to be
On your own
Tried your luck on me again
Fooled me for a while
I can see the games you played before
And it only makes me smile  
- back to top -
9. Do I Belong
Been so long since I felt so strong
I'm scared to fall in love
Many times I've been hurt before
It seems I can't get enough
Since your touch put a spell on me
I cannot ease my mind
Is it you I've been looking for
I'm searching deep down inside

Hit me by surprise
Right between the eyes
Do I belong
Do I belong
Are you the one?
Reaching for the sky

I just hope that in time we'll know
It's not a fairy tale
Disbelief, that is all I feel
I've been through heaven and hell
Even though after what I know
I'm breaking down the walls
Feeling strong whether right or wrong
I'm gonna get through it all

10. Can`t Deny
You pretend you're so cool
It's not you who's the fool
Says the voice on your shoulder

You pretend you're so calm
And you've never been harmed
But you're crying inside

Can't deny
What you find under the cover
What you need's more than a lover

You would like to believe
You could never deceive
Not yourself or another
When the going gets rough
You pretend you're so tough
But you're hurting inside

What you need is a friend
You can trust 'till the end
And you don't need no other
After all you've been through
l can see why you choose
Living life in disguise

11. Hands Of Time
No more tomorrow
Is what they talk about
Everyone borrows
On time while living in doubt
Innocent laughter
Filling the children's eyes
Don't let disaster
Destroy the magic of life

The sun is fading darkness comes in the sky
I wish we could turn back the hands of time

Why are we destined
Making the same mistakes
Especially next time
It could be far too late

Living together
Needing to compromise
Harder than ever
To stand the test of time
