Fire & Ashes Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Voyage of the Fallen (4:46)
Come on a voyage with us
Our quest is calling
All hear the oceans howling
Voices of the Fallen

Under a black moon rising
We set our sails again
Our hearts are filled with sorrow
Living our curse

Oh, how long must we sail
Until we're released?
Oh, set us free!

Come on a voyage with us
Our quest is calling
All hear the oceans howling
Voices of the Fallen
Too long we've roamed these waters
We've blown our hearts down
Our homeland we've forgotten
All we know is gone now
Come along with us!

It was a long time ago
We found the hidden gold
A treasure so exciting
We lost our souls

Oh, now we have to sail
Until we've released
Oh, set us free!

Come on a voyage with us
Our quest is calling
All hear the oceans howling
Voices of the Fallen
Too long we've roamed these waters
We've blown our hearts down
Our homeland we've forgotten
All we know is gone now

(When we may go home,
We'll take one final life.
This blood alone
Will pay our price).

Our hunger's neverending,
Cannot be satisfied.
Our thirst is everlasting,
Within our mouths it all runs dry.

Oh, we're lost!
Ghosts in the shadows.
Oh no! Creatures unhallowed.

Someday in a final storm
We will get back our mortal lives again!

Come on a voyage with us
Our quest is calling
All hear the oceans howling
Voices of the Fallen
Too long we've roamed these waters
We've blown our hearts down
Our homeland we've forgotten

(When we may go home,
We'll take one final life.
This blood alone
Will,
Will pay our,
Will pay our price).
2. Unembraced (4:27)
I see the beauty in the miracles revelead
I need the golden sparkles just to climb the tree
But sometimes I get scared and find it hard to stand
When all the violence is coming down on me

Sometimes I wonder

How can we ever be strong in this world
Without a hand that can lead us unhurt
How can we look into this empty face
All of us unembraced

I taste the bitter truth that makes me understand
There are some questions that might never be answered And all their poison sweet, the prayers and belief
Just let them gently sleep while I must stay awake

How can we ever be strong in this world
Without a hand that can lead us unhurt
How can we look into this empty face
All of us unembraced

I'll stay awake
I'll stay awake

Oh can we try to be strong in this world?
We are the hand that can lead us unhurt
Beauty of lies deep in the wonders unveiled
Love is the mirror for us to be free

Now take a look in our universe
Are you still unembraced
3. In Remembrance (5:01)
My child, my fleeting hour has come,
There's no mercy for me, no pardon
Close my eyes, I know you're overcome
and I have failed to guard you

Over mountains, through the meadows,
You travelled far from home
By the hand of your father
I'm left, abandoned, alone

Hear my voice, remember who cradled you
Who loved and swore to guide you,
through the darkest hours of your life,
Return to me, if only tonight

My child, let your kisses console my heart,
Revive me with your smile
All is gone now, now all is lost
Hear me plead for one last goodbye

Over mountains, through the meadows
He carried you far from home
By his hand, the hand of your father
We're left, abandoned, alone

Hear my voice, remember who cradled you
Who loved and swore to guide you,
through the darkest hours of your live,
Return to me, if only tonight

Hear my voice, remember who cradled you
Who loved and swore to guide you,
through the darkest hours of your live,
Return to me, my child
Let us reunite
4. I Would do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That) (Meat Loaf cover) (7:26)
And I would do anything for love
I'd run right into hell and back
I would do anything for love
I'd never lie to you and that's a fact
But I'll never forget the way you feel right now,
Oh no, no way
And I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

Anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

Some days it don't come easy
Some days it don't come hard
Some days it don't come at all, and these are the days that never end
Some nights you're breathing fire
Some nights you're carved in ice
Some nights you're like nothing I've ever seen before or will again

Maybe I'm crazy, but it's crazy and it's true
I know you can save me, no-one else can save me now but you

As long as the planets are turning
As long as the stars are burning
As long dreams are coming true
You'd better believe it, that I would do

Anything for love
And I'l be there until the final act
I would do anything for love, and I'll take a vow and seal a pact
But I'll never forgive myself if we don't go all the way, tonight
I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that
I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that
I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that
I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that

Some days I pray for silence
Some days I pray for soul
Some days I just pray to the god of sex and drums and rock 'n' roll
Some nights I lose the feeling
Some nights I lose control
Some nights I just lose it all when I watch you dance and the thunder rolls

Maybe I'm lonely, that's all I'm qualified to be
That's just one and only, the one and only promise I can keep

As long as the wheels are turning
As long as the fires are burning
As long as your prayers are coming true
You'd better believe it, that I would do

Anything for love
And you know it's true and that's a fact
I would do anything for love, and there'll never be no turning back
But I'll never do it better than I do it with you. So long, so long
I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that
No, no, no, I won't do...

I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that
I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that
I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that
I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that
I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that
I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that
I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do...

But I'll never stop dreaming of you ev'ry night of my life, no way
I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

[Girl:]
Will you raise me up? will you help me down?
Will you get me right out of this godforsaken town?
Will you make it all a little less cold?

[Boy:]
I can do that
I can do that

[Girl:]
Will you hold me sacred? Will you hold me tight?
Can you colourise my life, I'm so sick of black and white?
Can you make it all a little less old?

[Boy:]
I can do that
Oh no, I can do that

[Girl:]
Will you make me some magic with your own two hands?
Will you build and emerald city with these grains of sand?
Can you give me something I can take home?

[Boy:]
I can do that
I can do that

[Girl:]
Will you cater to every fantasy I got?
Will you hose me down with holy water, if I get too hot?
Will you take me places I've never known?

[Boy:]
I can do that
Oh no, I can do that

[Girl:]
After a while you'll forget everything
It was a brief interlude and a midsummer night's fling
And you'll see that it's time to move on

[Boy:]
I won't do that
I won't do that

[Girl:]
I know the territory, I've been around
It'll all turn to dust and we'll all fall down
Sooner or later you'll be screwing around

[Boy:]
I won't do that
No, I won't do that

Anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that
5. Ravenheart (2015 version) (3:49)
Come to me, Ravenheart
Messenger of evil
Come to me. What's the news?
Here I'm still left lonely

You shadow of forgotten dreams
You come to take again
My hope on your black wings

Of love & hate the singers tell
But I feel more, more of both,
More than heaven & hell.
I take a bow to destiny.
Now I have really learnt my part
Once loving him, now hating love
I've made mistakes, my Ravenheart

Will I get back who I adore?
Thus spoke the raven: nevermore.
6. Now & Forever (2015 version) (3:24)
Millions of songs all these years in my soul
And when we met I just knew they´re for you
Now your voice is singing them all
Your wings at mine we will never fall

On and on
We will fly now & forever
Side to side now & forever my love

Thousands of miles through the cold stormy air
There´s really nothing that I wouldn´t dare
I climb the eye of the hurricane
When the winds are whispering your name

On and on
We will fly now & forever
Side to side now & forever my love
7. Don't Say a Word (Sonata Arctica cover) (6:08)
I am your poison candygram,
the love that's meant to fade away
Vade retro, alter ego, move aside, I'm choking on this life
I think I tolerate your hate, as long as you're afraid
All I wanted was to be with you and suffer every day...

Under the moon I hold a wake for a promise torn
Mortally wounded, feelings sheltered me
Once again my shadow will enter your life
Time to walk with me the last mile...

I read a book about a man, a love, a woman, how they died
How I was waved aside, listen how the headless doves cry
I truly see a madman in the mirror when I'm weak
I spent a year in love before I realized it's me

Open your blue eyes, tell me that you love me, whore
Make me believe it, oh I know you're lying
Broke the vow I thought you made, my angel, why...
Could I let you wait out the night?

[CHORUS:]
Mother always said "my son, do the noble thing..."
You have to finish what you started, no matter what,
Now, sit, watch and learn...
"It's not how long you live, but what your morals say"
Cannot keep your part of the deal
So don't say a word... don't say a word

It won't be long now, love, like mist I slowly fill the room
I place a black candle on your chest,
The path of night is manifest
I never wanted us to end up in this catatonic phase
It wasn't me who ran away, you made me stray...

Open your blue eyes, tell me that you love me, whore
Make me believe it, oh I know you lie
Broke the vow I thought you made, my angel, why...
Settling the score, we pass the twilight...

[CHORUS:]
Mother always said "my son, do the noble thing..."
You have to finish what you started, no matter what,
Now, sit, watch and learn...
"It's not how long you live, but what your morals say"
Cannot keep your part of the deal
So don't say a word... don't say a word

Strawberry blonde, your stranglehold
on my heart is bound to end
I suppose, life sometimes,
it doesn't go the way it was meant
Though you never were a believer,
I assure you: I won't die before you
You read the book now,
The part "ashes to ashes, dust to dust"

Short is the flight of this little starling
Love sounds familiar, but the emotion escapes me
I will carpe the diem while it's still here,
And see how the fear of death becomes her

We had it all so sweet
Made for me, you, indeed...
Big secret, small the lie
Don't cry for me, oh, argentite

No word you say tonight
Can make this be alright
I'll help you follow through
Remember this?: Pacta sunt servanda

... The wounds are too deep,
I need to keep the scars
To prove there was a time
When I loved something more than life

Unlike the last time here,
I now have the means and a will sincere
Your knight is nowhere near
Unfortunate for you, this makes me your God...

[SOLOS]

Closing your eyes, don't ever say you love me, whore
You never meant a word, I know you lied
When there is life, there is despair, indulge me now
And stay alive this night... I promise you the end before the first light arrives...

[CHORUS:]
Mother always said "my son, do the noble thing..."
You have to finish what you started, no matter what,
Now, sit, watch and learn...
"It's not how long you live, but what your morals say"
Cannot keep your part of the deal
So don't say a word... don't say...

[CHORUS:]
Mother always said "my son, do the noble thing..."
You have to finish what you started, no matter what,
Now, sit, watch and learn...
"It's not how long you live, but what your morals say"
Cannot keep your part of the deal
So don't say a word... Don't Say A Word!
