After Forever Lyrics

(12)
Submitted by level
1. Discord (4:36)
You need to get out of my sight
A lonely heart can beat
You're too dangerous
A lonely heart can bleed
I cannot stand it to be enclosed but isolated
A lonely heart can be
Enclosed but isolated
You're too much
A lonely heart is weak
Too dependant
A broken heart will seek
You take the life out of me
No heart is broken forever
Its broken promises
But my faith is broken forever

Can’t you believe that this power we feel can be for real?
The smile that was given light now seems to freeze, but why?

A lonely heart will break
Pressure will make forsake you
A lonely heart won''t forsake me
As if we're both the same
Wounded and beaten but still not defeated
A lonely heart can be wounded and beated but still not defeated
Cause I won't let you in
So if it''s all for real
Your weakness will be my strength
Your heart should be melting
Because we''re all the same
You might be lonely
But I am not beloved and bounded forever
Because we're all the same
Beloved and bound forever

Can’t you believe that this power we feel can be for real?
The smile that was given light now seems to freeze, but why?

Won't you believe?
Won't you embrace it?
Can't you believe?
The power between us!

Oh, discord, see them fail, oh!
Won't you believe?
Won't you embrace it?

Can't you believe in the power between us!
Can't you believe that this power we feel can be for real?
The smile that was given light now seems to freeze, but why?
2. Evoke (4:24)
So wild, so beautiful and pure
All elements divine
The essence of all life
So vast, extensive and remote
Unbridled and erratic
Savage but glorious

It bursts; its energy is stirring
It calls; its drawing power will enchant us with its might
Its massive spirit's bright
Let it flow!

Its endless beauty will evoke
A timeless sequence we all share
We can not break through nor control
But to feel its true soul, dare to concede and to connect

Emerging waves and brightened skies
The sun burns in your eyes
The wind that blows and pounds

It shines, its energy is whirling
It fights, will not be interfered with people who can't feel it is all nature's flow
Let it flow!

Its endless beauty will evoke
A timeless sequence we all share
We can not break through nor control
But to feel its true soul

Its endless beauty will evoke
A timeless sequence we all share
We can not break through nor control
We should cherish it!

Oh, energy, oh, evoke me
Let it flow!

Its endless beauty will evoke
A timeless sequence we all share
We can not break through nor control
But to feel its true soul
It is not at our command, no
3. Transitory (3:29)
Life at its best
You are doing fine
But you're blind, it's china you hold
As it breaks
Suddenly clear
Beautiful, but transitory

What
We won’t break easy
We won’t give in
To an unbearable pain
We’ll pull through
We won’t crack
Will endurance survive?

Oh, transitory
Pain is as life itself
Evanescent as it fades

Oh, Transitory

Life, all you’ve got
All was swept away
Now you see
What there is to miss
Suddenly you're stronger than you thought
As you know
It''s transitory

Cause we won’t break
Survival is all we’ve got
And our unbearable greed
We’ll hold on
And won’t crack
And we’ll value our life

Oh, transitory
Pain is as life itself
Evanescent as it face
4. Energize Me (3:09)
Energize me with a simple touch
Or with an open heart
Energize me, fire up this flame
That''s burning between us

It''s not a fantasy
Another mistery
It''s just what I can feel
And something I can see
It''s like a memory
And in a melody
It''s just what we all know
And we all hear

I was blind
I was closed down
Could not feel
Or set it free

Energize me with a simple touch
Or with an open heart
Energize me, fire up this flame
That''s burning between us

It lies in everyone
This swalling energy
It''s all around us too
Electrifying you
So can''t you set it free?
This virtue is the key
Just something we all know
And we are used

I can feel
It''s inside me
Open up
Enlighten me

Energize me with a simple touch
Or with an open heart
Energize me, fire up this flame
That''s burning between us

Energize me with a simple smile
Open up your mind
Energize me activate that light
That''s given and taken

Can you believe in the power that''s burning between us?
Would you believe if you open up your mind
Open up your mind

Energize me with a simple touch
Or with an open heart
Energize me, fire up this flame
That''s burning between us

Energize me with a simple smile
Open up your mind
Energize me, fire up this flame
That''s burning forever
5. Equally Destructive (3:31)
Ground is shaking, waves are breaking
The wind has lost control
The air is shifting
While it''s lifting
While its lifting force fools gravity

A huge eruptions
Fast explosions
As it bursts the earth
Water''s pounding
Waves asounding
Deadly and extreme

But we are equally destructive

Equally destructive as we are!
Don''t you think we''ve all so gone too far?
We are just a part of this machine
In this endless stream

Alarming silence predicts the violence
That is yet to come
We are senseless
Proud while blindness is catching up with us

We must measure while the pressure
Of nature's force expands
We feel minor, punished and meager
Betrayed by all our gods

We are a part of it
We are equally destructive

Equally destructive as we are!
Don''t you think we''ve all so gone too far?
We are just a part of this machine
In this endless stream
6. Withering Time (4:31)
Withering time
So elusive, so shapeless
Graceful coil
Crumbling glory
It will revive
Exalt the endless chain
Exalt the withering times

Time decides what lives or dies
Time can crawl, time can fly
It can wither and erase
It can make a new beginning
There’s nothing time can’t beat
There is nothing time will need
To destroy and bloom again
A vicious circle older than the earth

Decay, destroy to reform again
Withering time

(choir)

Broken windows, blistering paint
Lashing winds, hot suns and rain
wood has splintered, walls are cracked
The elements are just vicious
All what men have made won’t last
In the future as in the past
But our memories are strong
And we’ll outlive all circles of time

Time, transcend byond all life,
Trancend byond

On! Until the end of time, on and on

Live! Before we waste our time, before we run out

Broken, blistering, lashing, splitering, cracking, crawling, flying, withering time

(Choir)
7. De-Energized (5:10)
You take, you give nothing but misery
You are reluctant in your vanity
Your eyes are blinded by your conceit
You turn my fire into negative energy!

You are stranged by your jealousy
A weakness in your personality
Your lack of social skills annoy me
Your fuel, my hate by your negative energy!

I see a false alliance causing all this pain
I see a sick relation ending up in vain
I see a world in war because of pride and might
I feel it all getting de-energized

I am amazed by your ability
To make me feel all this insanity
I am discouraged by your falsity
You sink so low to get things done your way

(Chorus)


Unwilling, absent, dissenting
Conflicting, adverse, annoying
You’re cureless, painless, disgusting
False, ruthless, blinded, recusant

You damage, injure and destroy
Unbalanced, troubled, unfaithful
You’re senseless, heartless and fearless
Cold, hostile, distant and empty
You are a freak!

You won’t get closer to my dignity
Something you’ve lost, just like empathy
I won’t degrade to your pathetic ways
Nor let take any more positive energy

(Chorus)
8. Cry With A Smile (4:25)
Cry with a smile
My heart is bleeding
Bewildered I''m here alone
Why is there in a beautiful moment?
Why do I feel so lost, so empty?

Cry with a smile
My heart is healing
From pain I knew that would come
Why stay locked in a deeply sad moment?
Why do I feel so cold, so peaceful?

Take my heart and set it free
Take my heart and give a time to heal
I know, in my memories you live
Take my heart a little while
Take it with you to the place you go
I know, we will meet again someday

Cry with a smile
My heart was dreaming
Of time I knew would come to an end
Why do I cry about a beautiful memory?
Why do I feel so hurt, so lonely?

Take my heart and set it free
Take my heart and give a time to heal
I know, in my memories you live
Take my heart a little while
Take it with you to the place you go
I know, we will meet again someday
9. Envision (3:56)
I see it
I hear but cannot know how you are feeling
I sense it but can''t comprehend

He''s standing there waiting for the news
To hear what''s wrong with her
His feelings go away beyond my own

Lonely sense it
Only imagine their fate
Just envision
The only way to relate

We try to
We say so
But we can only imagine
We want to
But can't emphatize

She’s laying there crying
For the truth is stronger than her pain
Her feelings go way beyond my own

Only sense it
Only imagine their fate
Just envision
The only way to relate

Can we sense it?
Can we imagine their fate?
Just envision
There''s no way we relate
For real
10. Who I Am (4:36)
You hipnotize me
I do not dare to look
You mesmerize me
Don''t even dare to feel

I want to have it just to prove I can take control
I want to have it just to show them I wont be fooled
I take it
I break it
I''ll force you
Just to let them know who I am
Who I am

I''ll softly touch this
I''ll fire up this flame
I''ll hold on gently
It''s time to leave the game

I want to have it just to prove I can take control
I want to have it just to show them I wont be fooled
I take it
I break it
I''ll force you
Just to let them know who I am
Who I am

I want to have it just to prove I can take control
I want to have it just to show them I wont be fooled
I take it
I break it
I''ll force you
Just to let them know who I am

Oh, I want to have it
Just wait and think it over
I break it, I take it
I don''t want to push it
I''ll force it
Just to let them know

That is not who I am
Who I am
11. Dreamflight (11:09)
Welcome and wake up
This is not a dream
But something in-between that and reality
Wake up if you dare
This is not a regular nightmare

Before your eyes the world will change
Slowly takes you down to unknown places
Welcome to a world that's only yours
Wake up if you dare and just follow me!

Leave me alone
My grief speaks to me where I'm still awake
Leave me alone
I'm my own threat, I'm a victim of my mind
Let go!

I fooled you, I warned you though
I won't let go before you've dreamed all your dreams
I'll play you, you want me to
You ask for more, you want to know

Leave me now, I need to know I'm in control
Leave me alone
Leave me be within my private fantasies
Let go!

I told you I won't let go
I want to show you what dreams can do for you
They'll free you, they'll open doors, they'll show you all
You want to know

As some is light and some is dark

Fear,
Face all your fears deep in this dream,
We are the dark side of your mind

Pain,
Feel all your pain deep in this dream
Feel it's a part of you
You are like your dreams,
Both light as dark, come with us now and explore

Silence I'm here
No words, no songs, no pain or doubts
I'm floating, even time itself
Can never touch me, I am free.
Silence I'm here
No voices, no music
I'm roaming through this soundless place
Leave me here where I am free

Doubt, I am your doubt deep inside
I am all you try to hide

Hate, I am your hate deep inside
I'm your mirror, your fright!

Energized by nightly views
You are the dream,
The dream is you, aah...

So face it
You know, I'm right
You have no reason to resent me and fight
You are me and I am you
The other side of the sleepy truth

Leave me please, how can I rest with you inside?
Leave me alone, I'm too tired for these crazy theories
Let go!

I'll leave you but won't let go
For I am part of all you'll ever do
I'll help you, I'll open doors
And show you all
You need to know
For I'm your dream energizer
12. Empty Memories (4:55)
Here, here in this heart
It''s cold, cold as stone

Must welcome these memories
As shallow as my eyes have slowly become fright

Frail heart left broken
Cold and numb
For its bitter agony

Here are the memories
As empty as my life has slowly become
Sting, crush and bite in my soul, my heart bleeds

Times changed forever that night
Leaving only empty memories
Empty memories won''t heal the pain

We know only sorrow
There''s no future in tomorrow
All our hopes have buried to young
For the years that should have followed

We know only hatred
There''s no future in our anguish
For our hope was buried with life
And reprisal will be ours

It''s empty
We''re empty
They''re empty memories

Here, here in this heart
It''s cold as stone
For no feelings there to warm

It is as empty as our dreams and hopes
Now our future is gone
It stings and bites in my soul, my heart bleeds

Times changed forever that night
Leaving only empty memories
Time once changed forever that night
Leaving me... No, no, no
With empty memories
Empty memories
Empty memories
