The Rain After the Snow Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Ab Umbra Lumen (4:13)
It was never enough
What the Age Of Gold
was to me - it was fear
behind the veil of Bride of Night

I’ve ran from suffering
Life was a prodigy of eternal sheer
The Widow never thought the same way of me

I have become an heartless one
An epitaph of myself
Deity’s shame
No paradise
Got to accept that
I’m lost
In the dark
In pain

Ab Umbra Lumen - Light is taking me
I am the void - through martyrdom
from barrenness I’ll flee - just once more
The wanderer is looking for atonement
for the shining pride, to cleanse the riverside,
Tear apart Her veil of lies - rip Her heart!

It has come the time, to get out of this wood
I want to die facing Her - in her eyes

I have become an heartless one
An epitaph of myself
Deity’s shame
No paradise

I’m lost
In the dark
In pain

To the Moon I sold
the weakest of souls
and all my Sense
and the whitest of words
and my pure and the timeless beauty
devoured my Mind
‘cause I feared the End


I’m lost
In pain

"Through my endless downfall
I find my missing soul
Inside over my shadows
I tried to save the dreamer "
2. Howl (3:40)
Howl

Gaunt and pale
I count my endless scars

I’ve tried and tried
to open up my heart
searching for that spark

Ignite and purify
my empty star
We’re running out of
time

Set the pace
of this decay
A deathly hour
is closing in

Howling
to the sacred
Father of Time:
scatter my embers!
Don’t let your son
desecrate my fate
my grave

Right,
howling against
your control!
Show me
what I’ll remember
what will remain
in this fog!
Lord, you shan’t
control my path!
I’ll show you

how we’re all just
an echo in Time

“Forget the past
and dream the future
burns in your hands
the flag of death”

Look at me,
I’ll live my shameless life
I’ll try
and try!
Look into my eyes,
I’ll stop the swing of ages

Lower your gaze,
what can you see?
Prayers are meant
for those who believe
For our stubborn doubts
To dignify our faults

The swing of your blade
is taking my core
Nothing remains
when the shadows are gone

What I cry for, it’s mine
I’ll drink my tears and
howl

Right,
howling against
your control!
Show me
what I’ll remember
what will remain
in this fog!
Lord, you shan’t
control my path!
I’ll show you
how we’re all just
an echo in Time

“Forget the past
and dream the future
burns in your hands
the flag of death”

Look at me,
I’ll live my shameless life
I’ll try
and try!
Look into my eyes,
I’ll stop the swing of ages
and I’ll save my soul
tonight,
again.
3. King with No Throne (4:38)
The silence of snow plays its mighty chant. Winter hear my fears!
Do tears make a sound when everything is still? You taught me how to cry…

And yet I am here short of diamonds in my eyes
I forgot how to walk on my favorite stage
To dance without falling, to speak without faltering

To love my inner being…
Winter, hit back at me! I’ll steal away your crown

Inside your kingdom how would you call me?
A king with no throne? A fool with no home?
Inside the snowstorm what makes us even?
The frailty of our feelings, their being errant?

There must be something here, pounding in our chests.
Don’t ask me to pretend, I won’t do that.
Give me back the innocence in my choices,
Don’t you know this is what I’m waiting for?

Inside your kingdom how would you call me?
A king with no throne? A fool with no home?
Inside the snowstorm what makes us even?
The frailty of our feelings, their being errant?

No shadows, no suffering
I restrain my soul from flying high

“Inside my kingdom would you call me a king without throne
a kingdom burns without a king”

“Die, diamond, die, in my eyes
Die, diamond, die, innocence in my choices”

Winter, face me, praise my lavish farce!
All this fret on stage, just eases all my fears
Finally, the truth is we’re living this alone,
after all our strains, the final curtain comes to caress us…

Inside your kingdom how would you call me?
A king with no throne? A fool with no home?
Inside the snowstorm what makes us even?
The frailty of our feelings, their being errant?

Each snowflake I swallow it just tastes the same,
but how bitter would I ever be outside your world?

The further I walk, the more I drift away
Often I feel that… I …restrain my soul, from flying high

The silence of snow, played its mighty chant
Winter, hear my fears…
4. Gold, Rubies and Diamonds (4:27)
In this coldest winter
the rain bites the ones with a human sentiment
And you won’t remember the warmness of spring
Of spring

The town cries in silence,
in hopes of seeing justice for all
But this winter will dry off the mind

Steady distant wings
This soul wants to stay
More alive than life itself -
she won’t survive

Happy indeed I was
loved by all
embracing all the good souls
this said Truth

And Death stole me away all the sighs,
embracing my memories

And the Swallows bring the Spring
but the Winter brought a Swallow
and she brought Spring to Winter
Let this Spring ignite all my soul

And Death stole me away all the sighs,
embracing my memories

And Death stole me away all the sighs,
embracing my memories

and take my eyes,
take my ruby, my gold leaves
and fly for my life

My gone life
My gone life

You decide to die here by my side
Circles and circles around all my town
In the frost you flied towards the other side
Circles and circles - my wings made of wax

Is this the end of a fairytale?
Your journey

…My journey

“My forgotten hopes, your forsaken truth”
5. Precious Things (4:57)
There’s a wish in this night
for redemption and light

And I…
I’m the essence of a sublime desire
It will be done

The preciousness of words
shatters the blackness around

We are prisoners of our time
we are all broken inside
Precious things are my mind’s wealth
My last hope

Dreams lost in a white night
Illusion froze the tide
My longing for redemption
of my pride

Calling for one more heavenly fire
In a season of lunacy of humanity
How many times will I remember
my wasted fights?

Always remember falling again
Shadows of my nonsense clenched
my clarity

Nocturnal sorrow waits for me
Will you stay here while despair
takes me?

We are prisoners of our time
we’re all broken inside
Precious things are my mind’s wealth
My last hope

Dreams lost in a white night
Illusion froze the tide
My longing for redemption
of my pride
and love

Precious things in my mind
slip away from my sight
I run to the shore
of the river
and you walk away
and I mourn

There’s a time for rage
a moment for deceit
The memories stay
and lull me into lies
Will they rock me to sleep?
The beginning of the end

I’m learning to survive
all night after night
Learning to breathe
while all smothers me
Precious things bleed inside
myself, in the corners of my mind

I’m prisoner of nights
I’m all broken inside
Precious things are my mind’s wealth
My last hope

Dreams lost in a white night
Illusion froze the tide
My longing for redemption
of my pride
and love

Bleed away now
6. Tide of My Heart (3:56)
Fighting against my solitude,
against my broken rhymes

I am lost in your wound - I know
in the dead of the night
you’ll light up all my way

A flash that crossed time
Not to throw to wind

We walked through the abyss
A story in our hands -
of two souls in the dead calm and storm

Everything - an unsung chant
Nothingness - the void unclimbed

Fighting against this new prospect,
Against a million tears

‘Cause I’m lost in your dream - I know
in this fading life - I can’t stand reality

Fragments of my life
never fall into symmetry
No regrets - will never fail the symmetry

Марина, ты волна моего сердца

Everything - an unsung chant
Nothingness - the void unclimbed

“I will never get used to you, neither to being surprised, nor to the private thoughts about you either. You are what I will dream about tonight, what will be dreamt about me tonight. (To dream or to be dreamt of?). An unknown “I” in a strange dream. I never expect you, I always arouse you.
If someone dreams of us together…”

A flash that crossed time
Not to throw to wind

We walked through the abyss
of sand and water in dead calm and storm

Everything - an unsung chant
Nothingness - the void unclimbed

Everything - an unsung chant
Nothingness - the void unclimbed

Fighting against my solitude,
the one of a ghost…
7. The Rain After the Snow (4:21)
Rain fell
Rain kissed me
Snow died
back to my earth

Springtime, what takes me?
I’m here, but my drapes

They will fall forevermore
before the world in fear
Life, cry your tears
leave behind
memories of a past
hard to leave

Spring, comest thou!
I forgot the last Snow…
I’ve been stolen of the prayer of a child
All their answers were vain,
help me to hide my seasons…

They will fall forevermore
before the world in fear
Life, cry your tears
leave behind
memories of a past
hard to leave
and heal
hard to conceal

SNOW COME BACK
NE’ER LEAVE ME

Snow will fall forevermore
at the feet of a rainy soul

Let your will soar
let the rise of a dream
freeze the sea of despair

Rain will fall forevermore
over the fate of all men

Snow will fall forevermore
at the feet of a rainy soul

Rain will fall forevermore
over the fate of all men
8. Life Deep in the Lake (5:21)
Remember me - in this fallen night
Remember all my promises
and deep in this lake
you’re swimming down
down to deceit

This is myself - This is your fate
Can you see me, miserable and divine?

I cry among these waters - and remember me, I was fragile
You break the surface with no regret - your dignity at stake
Your joy for the past - your hope has gone in pieces, deceived
by all these ghosts - the life at the end of the lake
Drowning forever

My wildside - and my pride
and you really counted on all I said
holy water
for your damnation

This is myself - This is your fate
Can you see me, miserable and divine?

I cry among these waters - and remember me, I was fragile
You break the surface with no regret - your dignity at stake
Your joy for the past - your hope has gone in pieces, deceived
by all these ghosts - the life at the end of the lake
Drowning forever

Remain sane, cry
and remain brave

What flesh cut - it hurt itself
This purity obscures the judgement
I’m well aware of how it tastes
‘Cause shadows can belong to grace

This goes

I cry among these waters - and remember me, I was fragile
You break the surface with no regret - your dignity at stake
Your joy for the past - your hope has gone in pieces, deceived
by all these ghosts - the life at the end of the lake
Drowning forever
9. The Awareness (4:24)
Does it take all life to understand
we’re just part of the same infinity?

I’m now aware no-one will ever give my years back to me
- except myself, my soul -
The change defines the passing of time
it’s the act itself masters this cruel hold
There’s just one rule for us

We walk alone, as you cry for me
the trail of tears - I’m here

I was told “remember you’re going to die”
We should know first we’re meant to live

Through the eyes of time
I decide to tread on path of Utopia
not of survival
Set the vision of my world
No prayers to comfort
my very last journey
You’ll keep all the answers
I left in my room of doubts

We walk alone, as you cry for me
the trail of tears - I’m here

There you will keep all my words
there in your hearts, untamed

No more to write about,
there’s still a lot to see
there’s more than this
more questions than answers

My self-perception leads the way
beyond this end
this earthly matter
I know it will always change…
