Gather the Faithful Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Carlos Acioli
1. My Queen of Winter (4:15)
When the darkness has grown strong,
And the night it feels so long.
Like the sun has left too long just waiting,
And the winter's waining.

Blow out the candle and unleash the night,
Open the door, let the cold inside.
My heart you have captured, your shadow,
You ruptured, to leave all my fears to decay.

All of my life I've been waiting for someone,
To share all my kingdom with me.
The silence unbroken, words left unspoken,
Sign across my heart your name.
The Queen of Winter; this is where you reign!

You are the daughter of the wolves and the breeze,
I am the beast of the winter.
Chill in your spine and the howl in the night,
I have the frost in your heart.

Get up! Get up!
Get up! Get up!
You're never gonna give up!

How would you feel,
If ya' can't hurt me.
How would you feel,
Going without pain?

Sleep can be eternal,
Underneath the veil of stars,
The caress of a person,
Can be so soothing on our scars.

Stay forever, here beside me.
Slumber peacefully.
Through the years, my heart will belong to you,
And you'll belong to me.

Where you reign!
2. More Than Friends (5:38)
We're more than friends
We are like lovers
Two souls in one forever entwined
I feel with your skin, you live on my heartbeat
Warm me within while tending my walls

Mind still divide
The distance between us
Keeps growing still and hope is alive
And every night we share the same dream
Thats were we hide you and I

You have always been much more than friend to me
And I can never hope to find another one
Now that time is right
Just tell me what to sacrifice for you to tonight

Wake me with the sound of your heart, beat the silence
If I'm not offering beauty enough for you
Oh let me slumber deeper and deeper
Forever I'm waiting for you

Would you hurt me
If i crossed that line from wanting
To why alone I'm tonight

Tell me if I'm alive or just breathing
For I cast the shadow and I'm alone

You have always been much more than a friend to me
You have always so much more than a friend should be

Wake me with the sound of your heart, beat the silence
If I'm not offering beauty enough for you
Oh let me slumber deeper and deeper
Forever im waiting for you
Just call my name and I'll be there
Forever I'm waiting for you

You have always been much more than a friend to me
You have always so much more than a friend should be

Wake me with the sound of your heart, beat the silence
If I'm not offering beauty enough for you
Oh let me slumber deeper and deeper
Forever im waiting for u

Wake me with the sound of your heart, beat the silence
If im not offering beauty enough for you
Just call my name and I'll be there
3. Oceans of Regret (6:21)
Twisted sense of irony
In the way a ghost of lack of sympathy
has turned me so hopeless, so heartless
Guess/Since heaven ain't open for me tonight
I'll pray for the last time
For you and for me and our ordinary lives, ordinary lives
My pain redefined like an unwelcome guest arrives
Just to/you remind me

I'm there for you if you still want me
To fall after all, I'm yours to keep
Just come to me, I'll wait here with my wounds wide open

Pour your salt
Into these wounds
And watch me crawl
Tell me to take it like a man
Show me my place
Hurt me just because you can

Though now it hurts like hell
It is better to see that something else
Than leave me unanswered and teased
So tell me now, how was he?
And tell me, was he worth it?
And now it's peace is all i want
It's all in payment for this old and tired one
Downcast wayward son

Cant go out of my home
So i'll make it my own
While rising up to feel no more

Trying to wash off the pain's stain
Don't fill my heart with your disdain/distaste
Why can't you see, i live with, I face, what you ask of me

You pour/put your salt
Into my wounds
And watch me crawl
Tell me to take it like a man
Show me my place
Hurt me just because you can

Take me in
Then tell me you hate me
Dream with me
Make love to me until i bleed
How does it feel to know
That you can't break me

And i guess I'd/I'll forgive
If would not look weak
And i knew that you'd give yourself to me
Though the wound is too deep
I would give everything
If I could just be the object of your desire

Silently, you stood there before me
Violently, unveiling your sin and your deceit
You said to me
Love is only beautiful when it bleeds

Pour your salt
Into these wounds
And watch me crawl
Tell me to take it like a man
Show me my place
Hurt me just because you can
4. Gather the Faithful (3:50)
5. Into the Blue (4:25)
Once long ago I was young and naive
I dared to hope and I dared to dream
Once long ago lights were brighter for me
this world was mine to keep

I traveled so far defying the dawn
just to see where this road leads
my foolish hunt, unbroken *unscarred* was whole
...and then there was you.

Once long a go I felt lost without you
and life had lift me high and *dry*
Once long ago didn't know what to do
Alone inside my mind

So far away, from where I'm today
no one can reach my heart
Until the day my darkness freed away
and into the blue

[Chorus]
Out of the darkness and into the blue
still broken and scarred but I'm over you
for every scar and every tear that falls
means I'm healing

Where are you now, are you thinking of me?
when you look in the mirror, what do you see
the burden you bear and the secret you keep
reminding you endlessly

I'm being broken for a while
but I'm not missing you

[Chorus]
Out of the darkness and into the blue
still broken and scarred but I'm over you
for every scar and every tear that falls
means I'm healing

Out of the darkness; into the blue
where you don't want me and I don't need you
Thou I'm down and thou I'm torn apart
I'm still breathing

[Chorus]
Out of the darkness and into the blue
still broken and scarred but I'm over you
for every scar and every tear that falls
means I'm healing

Out of the darkness; into the blue
where you don't want me and I don't need you
Thou I'm down and thou I'm torn apart
I'm still breathing

Out of the darkness and into the blue
where you don't want me and I don't need you
Thou I'm down and thou I'm torn apart
My heart's beating
6. Dawn of Solace (4:18)
Call me when the fire,
From the preacher's burning.
Guilt's in your eyes,
And you need someone to take the blame,
Once more, like you've done before.

So when you need a scape goat,
Just place the blame on me.
I never asked be anyone's hero,
I never asked to carry the torch.

I'm here for you to crucify,
Waiting for your lies,
To save me once more.

So let me take that cross from you,
I'll bury it like I always do.

Out of the night and into the light.
Where I swear my allegiance.
I'll stand by your side,
And I will ease your sorrow and greed.

Your burden, I will bare,
Your pain, I will share.
To you I will surrender.

But in the end,
I know I'll have the last laugh,
And smile at the dawn of solace,
And laugh on the reckoning day.

Once more, the fool's will return,
To parade you and mock you,
Until they hate you for what you've become.
And you call me.

But I am overburdened,
And I can take no more.
I am what I am, but never before,
And no matter what, it'll settle the score.

Deep in the night, I'll hide from the light.
Where I swore my allegiance.
I'll stand by your side,
And I won't ease your sorrow or pain.

No burden to bare,
I've suffered my share,
Now gone, this feels so tender.

And in the end,
I know I'll have the last laugh,
And smile at the dawn of solace,
And laugh on the reckoning day.

And dream, if only for a moment.
For we are of a dying kind.

You! You disparate me, rape me, hate me.
'Till there is nothing left worth saving.
My heart is cold and growing colder.
Now be a man, just wake me when it's over.

Deep in the night, I'll hide from the light.
Where I swore my allegiance.
I'll stand by your side,
And I won't ease your sorrow or pain.

No burden to bare,
I've suffered my share,
Now gone, this feels so tender.

And in the end,
I know I'll have the last laugh,
And smile at the dawn of solace,
And laugh on the reckoning day.

And dream, if only for a moment.
For we are of a dying kind.
7. Thorn In My Side (4:07)
I did not hear the warning
I did not see the sign
Youre the master of illusion
You're the devil in disguise

Temptress in lace and leather
You make me lose control
One sinful night and I just lost my heart and lost my soul

I was the one to hold you
But not the only one
I hear you say you're sorry
But some things cannot be undone
I try so hard to forget
Try so hard to forget
I try to understand but it's too late to make amends

Don't come here asking for forgiveness for the things you've done
Don't point your finger at me, because you are the fallen one

Thorn in my side
Forever hurting me
You're my fantasy
For the night
Please stay here close to me
I'll play the clown, you strike me down again

Still searching for my pieces
Still so out of control
One piece is always missing
And I don't know how to fill that hole

Still I dont know the answer
or what the question is
Don't know how we got here
But I don't want it to end like this

Thorn in my side
Forever hurting me
You're my fantasy
For the night
Please stay here close to me
I'll play the clown, you strike me down again

Still i want to touch you
Still I long to hold you
Still I need to feel you
Right here by my side
and still i cannot have you
still you are too wild and free
and still i cannot answer that you are not meant for me

Thorn in my side
Forever hurting me
You're my fantasy
For the night
Please stay here close to me
I'll play the clown, you strike me down again

Still i want to touch you
Still I long to hold you
Still I need to feel you
Right here by my side
Still i want to touch you
Still I long to hold you
Still I need to feel you
Right here by my side
8. Morpheus In A Masquerade (6:51)
One more night,
One more before I shall whither and die.
Grant me just one more life.
One more I'm needed to make this thing right.

The more that I gave,
The less I received.
It's all for them,
And none for me.

I am unworthy to be sacrificed,
I'm such a tragic coming.

Doing the dance, and singing the songs,
I'm Morpheus in a Masquerade.
Your just sins, I have held deep-within.
I will burn down for you.

One more night,
For me to turn into what I portrayed.
Call me by my true name.
One more time, one more before it's too late

It's not the ovations that I so adore,
It's your shrine I kneel before.
You were my beginning and you'll be my end,
My lover and my friend.

There in the dark you have always been waiting,
Waiting for me to return back home.
Hold onto me when the ballroom has ended,
Masquerade has faded.

Dark is the road that now lies before me,
Twisting the path to that empty house,
Where evil lurks in every darkened room.
Just waiting for you.

Liars and the martyrs,
I've got dreams to auction.
Devil can you hear me?
I've got souls to sell.

Sinner or a saint,
For me it's all the same.
I have grown so tired,
Of this Masquerade.

My ray of hope, where are you now,
When I need you the most?
You are the child of love,
And you are all I've been longing for.

Let your morning fall upon me,
Let the night time fade away.
Bestow on me forgiveness,
And let me live for another day!

And I've gone and made my bed,
And in it I will lay.
Bored of evil, for now,
I'm old and gray.

I'm Morpheus, please dance with me.
As always can take the lead,
And guide me through the walls of light,
Sailing through the seas of night.

I'm Morpheus, please caress me.
Hold my heart, too weak to beat.
For I'm not sure I want to see,
What you've come to show to me.

Tonight, see the weight of a broken man,
Standing by the shore-line.
He turns around,
And I can see it's me.

Standing where the ocean touch the sand,
This little boy,
Has grown to be a man.
Let me be the best I can.

Take me where the clouds caress the horizon.
Where all I hear is whisper of the wind.
And mothers rule must move things on, once more.
Where is the star I used to wish upon, so long ago?

One moment, I'm broken.
My heart will be wide open.
For someone, for no one.
Cast to the wind, my ashes.

Here I stand, naked and ashamed.
I've been stripped down to the bone.
The Emperor's new clothes,
And no one here can see.

And no one can say,
But it's good enough for me.
I'm undone and forsaken,
By my imaginary friends.

You'll all leave me alone,
So I can down my existence.
For in the end,
I don't even know who I am.

I've shifted shapes so many times.
I've forgotten which ones mine.
So sick and tired,
Of been sick and tired.

My quest for immortality,
Has made me so much more human,
Than I ever wished to be.
My love, save me!
9. Stolen Waters (4:35)
My lady of pain,
Always come without a warning.
And tear a little heart apart.

Every mistake, and every tear,
That's set on falling.
Each and every one wears my name.

Don't place your hopes on me,
For I'm gonna let you down.
I am better left alone,
Please leave my loneliness unbroken.

The charm of stolen waters,
Revenge is hard and upon my hand.
My only true redeemer,
The only thing I still can feel.

Keep your distance.
Don't come to close,
Or I will hurt you.
Even though don't want to.

(Just run)

So hard to make a stand,
When all I ever asked,
Still leaves this hunger,
Unsatisfied.

Still I miss the morning dues,
Still I crave for the warming sun.
Temptation to power through.
It breaks my will and leaves me pain.

The charm of stolen waters,
Revenge is hard and upon my hand.
One fragile passing moment.
Just one more dream that did not last.

Her angel wings, now broken.
I've become the face of misery.
Go to her heart, to open.
In silence archers watch her bleed.

It doesn't stand. Young heart fool on her way.
And though every lie, you will be mine tonight.
Naked and tied, stripped of her pain.
Betrayer of our dreams, pale moonlight.

Hold me, closer.
Pray that the night's never over.
Be me, so meanly.
I am so close, yet so far away.

Don't place your hopes on me,
For I'm gonna let you down.
I am better left alone,
Please leave my loneliness unbroken.

The charm of stolen waters.
Revenge is hard and upon my hand.
One fragile passing moment.
Just one more dream that did not last.

Her angel wings, now broken.
I've become the face of misery.
Go to her heart, to open.
In silence archers watch her bleed.

(The charm of stolen waters)
Revenge is hard and upon my hand.
(My only true redeemer)
The only thing I still can feel.
10. Elegantly Broken (2:46)
Silence is broken.
Empty words are licking,
The layers of sin,
From our skin.

We realise happenings,
and not for everyone.
They're not for us.

Break of dawn,
Let us lay down our arms.
In the end of the day,
We can savour our loss.

But I never stopped trying.
And I never said,
I was not for...

A little bit of pain,
A little bit of longing,
A little bit of love,
To come our way.
A little bit of fear,
A little bit of hate,
Little hope,
For the hopeless.
A little bit of rain,
A little bit of thunder,
Little broken smile,
At the end of our day.
A little stormy cloud,
A little bit of winter,
Breath life,
Into lifeless.

You were always so much stronger than me.
Now our pain has made you beautiful.
But inside your armor, is your heart still open?
For here I stand, still trapped in my solitary shell.

Reaching out to you, with my aching thorns.
Hear me now, please don't tell me,
You are too proud for...

Just give yourself to me,
Together we can will be,
So elegantly broken.
