Far Beyond the Stars Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level
1. Somewhere Back In Time
I'm your destiny, I am
I am your pride, I am your greed
I'm everything you need
I'm the one who takes your fear
and turns it to serenity
There's no one here but me!

Out here, you can hear the screams of ancient times
Oh yeah!

I am the one, the only one
Turning back the hands of time is never easy
I am the moon, I am the sun
Come with me I'll show you how to fly and

The answer to your mystery lies somewhere back in time!

Somewhere back in time - that is where your sorrow lies
Feeding on all the mistakes of your life
Don't you fall - I am the one who can save you all,
the power I hold is for real

Somewhere back in time - that is where your sorrow lies
Feeding on all the mistakes of your life
Don't you fall - I am the one who can save you all,
the power I hold is unimaginable

In a time where war is rife,
the pavement cracks they tell a tale
of malice and betrayal
I give hope to all mankind,
I offer peace when future fails,
I am the legend in these tales

Out here, you can hear the angels call my name
Again!

Chorus x1

Chorus x2
2. Blackthorne
May we talk about this day after day
He will only make your life a dismay
There's a stranger and he's right at your door
Don't you let him in 'cause he is the one who will kill

Only to destroy, what you have inside
He is not a man, but more a beast

Like the sun, he will rise as you fall
Oh, he is the one who will conquer them all
Like the wind he will rise to the skies with the stars
Nothing in this world will ever crush his soul

I can see the fire burning sleep within his eyes
In the blackest nights he cries in his nightmares
Even in the darkest corners of this rotting world of ours
Nothing can compare to the darkness that he lives in...
tonight

Looking back upon a time long ago
I often ask where did that spirit go
And though the land lies in this restless peace
One day great horns will sound and awaken the slumbering beast!

And we all shall fight, to overcome his might
We shall prevail, destroy him!

We won't lie down is the faith can be found
The fate of our land can be crushed by one man
And forever we will dream to restore what has been
Just beyond the blackened sky a new dawn will rise!

I can see a time when we will rise up again
With great heroes who'll stand up to guide us
I believe in freedom for one and for all
To get through these blackened times we all need the will…
to fight

Chorus I
(We see the good in every man but
Nothing could prepare for the darkness that he lived in)

Chorus II
(We have won our victory
And earned the right to be free forevermore)
3. Reflected Life
When I look back upon the choices I have made so long ago
I know the path I see, was pre-determined - made for me
And I can't afford to fall, give it up and lose it all
Someday I must find a way
I can't let you lead me astray

Walk away. Oh let the beast you hide fade away and slowly die
Walk away. And in time you'll find that your mind will be set free

And you will see those things you've never seen
And you will feel things you won't believe
Reflected mind, waiting for its time to see a world
The world of my reflected life

Now everything is wrong I feel like I just don't belong
I hope that I will see the day when all my problems melt away
And now something's drawing near, a fire that's feeding on my fear
I hope we can find a way
I can't let you lead me astray!

Walk away. Oh let the beast you hide fade away and slowly die
Just walk away. And in time you'll find that the truth will always be

Chorus

Now you're free to see the things you've never seen
And you feel things you shouldn't feel
Reflected mind, soon will get its time to see a world
The world of my reflected life

No! I won't let you hold me down,
I can't live my life this way, I wish for freedom every day
Make you pay
The mirror watches constantly
I feel temptation empower me and when it breaks I will finally
Be set free

And now, as I gaze out to the world
Looking for a guide I see there is nothing left for me
I can't breathe
In my reflection I see the way
A different life but it's all the same, to the end I shall remain
End this pain...
4. Heavenly
Oh I thought that this would be
Peace for you and me, perfect harmony
Oh can't you see
That this madness is wrong, we lied for so long
All I want to be is a brand new me

Oh I never thought that we could always be together darling
I always knew that you lied every time you said you loved me
You will always be my downfall - I find you way too tempting
I cannot resist every smile and kiss
You are heavenly to me

I can't live my life with a curiosity that's so unkind to me
I must find the key to another destiny
Where you can never follow me

We, we can plainly see
There's no hope for me, this is not a game
This is too much pain
Every time I cry, sadness in my eyes
True reality, my duality

Oh I never thought that we could ever change your evil cravings
I always knew that you smiled every time you tore my heart out
You will always be my downfall - I find you way too tempting
I cannot resist every smile and kiss
You are heavenly to me

Chorus

Chorus x2

(Now I've found the key to another destiny
Where you can never follow)
5. Moongate
The night's sharp fall had stirred my fear
As the storm surrounds and strikes the ground
In a flash of light the gate appears
The red light floods around

I stand before my destiny, one step is all it takes
I've waited long now for this day - drawn in I can't escape
But in my heart I know it's true, this is my path to see it through
I leave my love and hate behind step through the gate to find

Oh I must leave this world behind
For a journey through space and time
I feel strong in the Moongate's shine
Woah, I know that I must leave my home
But I don't know the way to go
I feel strong in the Moongate's glow

Now I've arrived, or quest begins
And I look to find the place I'm in
Is a strange new world - I have to grasp
My life begins at last

Bridge

Chorus

I must leave this world behind
For a journey through space and time
I know that I must leave my home
But I don't know...

I must leave this world behind
For a journey through space and time
I know that I must leave my home
I don't know the way to go
6. Orb Of The Moons
(instrumental)
7. Silver Tide
Once, once you believed that we could always be
But fates can fall apart, unravelled from the start
But I'll be with you in another place, another time
It you only look you will see that
this land wasn't meant for you and me
You're free

When the storm breaks and the rain is falling down on me
When my heart shakes and my hope it fails so easily
I see that in hard times this hope was always by my side
A saviour that when needed surely shall arrive
Upon the Silver Tide

These times, times are hard to bear - all the malice and despair
But I know what must be done, and I've known it all along
Now I hope you see that this final path is my destiny
Now we stand alone and chili this final kiss
I must leave, it's time to go
I'm free

Chorus

Chorus

When your heart breaks and the pain is all too much for me
When the Earth shakes and we stand alone so bravely
I know at the end when I die for you and liberty
You live on and I shall fulfill my destiny
I will be free
8. Time Machine
If I could only turn back time and stop her falling through my hands
Just like the sand through the glass, I've got to get her back
Four years I shut myself away and did not sleep a night or day
A great machine I must design - an hourglass to turn back time

It was the night that I proposed, as we were walking through the snow
And as I gazed into your eyes we were taken by surprise
And on this winter's night, so cold - I feel the fear, it's taking hold
There was a struggle, I tried to fight - and then he stole away her life

From the barrel of the gun, one bullet, she is gone
I have to go back to save her - I'll travel through time!

Back to that night, her eyes were still bright
But just when I saved her she died again

And every time the sky was black, I felt a coldness in her hands
Why can't I save her, get her back? I can't begin to understand...

I'd sacrifice and give it all - if I could have just one more kiss
I have the power of a god, yet I am still powerless
So as I slowly lost my mind and then lost track of all the days
I could go back a thousand times and watch her die a thousand ways

And as the shot rang through the air, it was too much for me to bear
That's why I built it, to save her I'll travel through time

Back to the past, when I saw her last
But just when I held her she died again

Now that I've lost my only love - what reason do I have to stay?
So when I realized she's gone I went forward through time

To the unknown, now I am alone
To search for an answer, why can't she remain?

And so at last I have arrived - a stranger lost in a strange time
Yet still no answer to my woe, why didn't I just let him go?
I sense there's something very wrong, I think I've known it all along
I must give up, for I have failed. There is no light in this new dawn

I only built it cause she died, it won't exist if she survives
That's why I never can save her - I cannot fight time!

The sky's turning black, I can't get her back
And never can save her from dying again...
9. Far Beyond The Stars
(instrumental)
10. The Avatar (Ascension)
Seasons come and go, as the passing of our time that goes by slowly
Leave the world I know, and a life that's far behind but now this path is mine

Once, I had a dream of time to come and I could see what is to be,
and the path of destiny!

Once I had a dream, like a distant memory - a world you can't see
Voices in my mind, like a whisper on the wind that's from far beyond the stars!

Call, call out to me in times of need and I will fight eternally
Now this is my destiny!

That which the world has lost does wait for the dawning of this fate
And great courage I must show, now I go!

With this strength, I fight to make it better day
And in my mind, I know that it's not far away
But kind at heart, and with this fire burning in my eyes - I shall arise!

Places out of reach, and far beyond your sight that's where my road leads
The evil that I lost is now my final test, we stand at the edge of time!

Now, now is the time - stand up and fight and you will find
That in the end that the world is free again!

That which the world has lost does wait for the dawning of this fate
And through courage we are free, if you believe

Chorus

For the people I must make a stand, break the curse that holds across this land
I am their champion - through the Moongate I must go again

I have come to face my final fight, and it's time to make my sacrifice
For them I would give my life...I am the Avatar!
