We're Here Because We're Here Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Thin Air (5:59)
Love is free
In time, in peace
And now is here
This life, this dream ...

You know how it feels but... is it all in your mind?
When you know how it feels to be pushed and pulled through your life
And sometimes it seems like there is life in your eyes
And all that I know is I love you

Yes I love you

And it feels like we're already flying
But the air is too thin and we're dying
The clouds all around take us higher
The world far below is on fire
I hold out my hand just to touch you
And all that I know is I love you
A vision a promise of heaven
A reason for being forever

You're just a whisper away

We've come too far to turn back
This is where we stand and face it
This is who we are, one step closer
Into thin air we will go there

We've come too far to turn back
This is where we stand and face it
I feel you breathe
You're just a whisper away

We've come too far to turn back
This is where we stand and face it
This is who we are one step close
Into thin air we will go there

We've come too far ...
This is where we stand ...
2. Summernight Horizon (4:12)
In the moonlight
In the moonlight's pale embrace
We come to know the space between us
The space between us

Dreamlight
Dreamlight comes in waves
(the waves within us)
Starlight
Starlight, silent brakes
(It brakes between us)
To know the space within us
The space within us

In blood red skies
Mind takes flight (the sky is falling)
Oceans rise
Worlds collide
To know the space between us
The space between us

Fly
In a dream so high
Feel so alive
The world is like a jewel in your eyes
One life
Feel it

In the moonlight
The moonlight's pale embrace
(embrace the feeling)
There is no space between us
No space between us

In blood red skies
Tears run dry (the sky is falling)
There is no space between us
3. Dreaming Light (5:19)
Suddenly... life has new meaning
Suddenly... feeling is being
Suddenly... I don't have to be afraid
Suddenly... All falls into place

And you shine inside
And love stills my mind like the sunrise
Dreaming light of the sunrise

And you shine inside
And love stills my mind like the sunrise
Dreaming light of the sunrise
Dreaming light and ...

I feel you but I don't really know you
I dreamed of you from the moment I saw you
And I've seen the sunrise in your eyes
The sky... the sea... the light

So live your dream beneath the northern horizon
Be at peace, set your heart in flight again
For the light is truth...
The light is you...
4. Everything (5:06)
Needed time to clear my mind
And breathe the free air find some peace there
I used to keep my heart in jail
But the choice was love or fear of pain and

I...
Chose...
Love...
Cos everything is energy and energy is you and me...

Light shines in through an open window
Shines inside your heart and soul and
Light will guide your way through time
And love will help you heal your mind and

Life...
Will...
Be..

Cos everything is energy and energy is you and me...
5. Angels Walk Among Us (5:17)
(only you can heal inside,
Only you can heal your life)

It must have been an angel
Who counted out the time
Yes it must have been an angel
Who raised a knowing smile
And I just couldn't reach you
No matter how I tried
No I just couldn't reach you
So instead I ran to hide

(only you can heal inside,
Only you can heal your life)

Mother can you hear me?
Can you tell me, are you there?
Father can you help me?
Cos I know that you care
And I don't have to fight it anymore
For all those years I was dreaming
And I don't have to worry anymore
Cos I found my belief in...
Mother can you hear me?
Can you tell me are you there?
Father can you help me?
Cos I know that you care

(only you can heal inside,
Only you can heal your life)
6. Presence (2:58)
One has to come to term us with one's own mortality.
And you can't really help people who are having problems with mortality,
If you've got problems of your own.
So you have to begin to sort things out,
And I thought I had sorted things out until I saw this excerpt from this book,
Of certainty I shall remember what it said:
"Life is not the opposite of death. Death is the opposite of birth. Life is eternal."
And I thought that it's the most profound words I have ever heard about that issue and it really put me in peace.
(I felt it was a wonderful story.)
And that's it.
What else is there to say?
Heh.
Life is eternal.
Surely the opposite of life is not the death, but life is eternal.
There is no opposite.
And so, what happens is, I suppose,
(and isn't it a raging or outrageous)
State of pure consciousness, stillness and silence?
Yeah, what we are looking for now,
We are searching for and we have been searching for,
Now we've become closer it and now we know it's already there,
Is there for ever to seek,
It's there,
And it's going be there,
All the time,
Forevermore.

Only you can hear your life
Only you can heal inside

(Life is eternal...)
7. A Simple Mistake (8:14)
Think for yourself you know what you need in this life
See for yourself and feel your soul come alive tonight
Here in the moment we share, trembling between the worlds we stare
Out at starlight enshrined, veiled like diamonds in..

...time could be the answer, take a chance or lose it all
It's a simple mistake to make to create love and to fall
So rise and be your master you don't need to be a slave
Of memory ensnared in a web, in a cage

I have found my way to fly free from the constraints of time
I have soared through the sky seen life far below in mind
Breathed in truth, love, serene, sailed on OCEANS OF BELIEF
Searched and found life inside, we're not just a moment in time...

...Could be the answer, take a chance or lose it all
It's a simple mistake to make to create love and to fall
So rise and be your master you don't need to be a slave
Of memory ensnared in a web, in a cage

[spoken words from "Defending Middle-Earth Tolkien: Myth and Modernity" by Patrick Curry:]
Despair is for people who know, beyond any doubt, what the future is going to bring.
Nobody is in that position.
So despair is not only a kind of sin, theologically, but also a simple mistake, because nobody actually knows.
In that sense there always is hope.
8. Get Off, Get Out (5:01)
I know it feel it flow
I see it grow, I see you low
Hello, too low...?
I know to feel it more
To feel it more, feel it more
Than more...
I feel it more to feel it more

It ain't about yourself get out of yourself
Push it on out of yourself right out of sight
You got a big surprise coming your way
Push it on all out, move it
Push it.Push it
It ain't about yourself get out of yourself
Go check it out
It's coming...
9. Universal (7:19)
Above the clouds
We flew to heaven
Through the eye of the storm
And into to the light

I see you
You're everywhere I go
In everything I do

I dreamed a thousand years
Just to be here where everything is right
Scrape those screamless skies
Defy the limits and fly

I see you
You're everywhere I go
In everything I do

I see you
You're everywhere I go
In everything I do
10. Hindsight (8:10)
