A New Beginning Lyrics

19. A New Beginning (7:41)
Track rating :  94.4 / 100      Votes :  11     
INT. EMPEROR’S PALACE – DAY

[Faythe]
Father, I implore you
Don’t believe a word
He is not the enemy
That is just absurd

You may see his talent
As some kind of threat
But I knew we were meant to be
From the day we met
Give us both a chance
For a new beginning
Nothing would mean more to me

He is just a man
Can’t you show him mercy
Sympathy and strength go hand in hand

[Nafaryus]
This man’s a fraud and hoax
He’ll only shatter your hopes
Saddest of all is to watch how you fall
For this person who you hardly know

[Faythe]
Ignorant and stubborn
You have no respect
Not just for your flesh and blood
But all who you protect

Listen without judgment
Keep an open mind
If you cannot see the truth
You’re the one who’s blind
We don’t stand a chance
That is his opinion
Mother, can you talk to him?

[Arabelle]
Try to understand
How they must be feeling
Misery’s to know what might have been

[Nafaryus]
Why would I ever concede
To listen to this fool
How can you be so naive?
You must be living in a world of make-believe
Do you really think this charlatan is who he claims to be?

[Arabelle]
Not long ago there was a time and place
You too possessed the same desires as Faythe
You knew how it felt to feel invisible
Music calmed your soul, just like a drug
Remember Bug?

[Faythe]
Father is it true,
Bug was always you?
Finally I can reveal, how music makes me feel
Now you understand Why I was hiding
This changes everything

[Nafaryus]
I will grant the chance
For a new beginning
In the end the final word rests with me
