Stormcrow Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level needsleep
1. Stormcrow
Rising from the ashes
A Dark messenger of sorrow
I'm the Stormcrow

Heaven and hell
Entwined in a dance that you know so well
Your pleasure and pain
They are my domain
They're where I reign

You've been waiting for me
In your denial it's hard to see
Addicted to pain, your life is a cage
And you heart is the stage

¿Where I'll play my symphony so vile?
Your life it will never be the same
The storm will rise again and
You'll see too late I am all that you hate

Rising from the ashes
A Dark messenger of sorrow
I'm the Stormcrow
I'm your woe

Cruel wings of destruction
Harbinger of your downfall
I'm the Stormcrow
I'm your woe

I'm your Cain
The pain that will bring you down to your knees
The beast you have slain again and again
I still remain

I'm the ghost of your pride
I am the night of the days gone by
A remnant of life you left behind
Your angel sent from below

¿Where you'll go when all is said and done?
Your life it will never be the same
The storm will rise again and
You'll see too late I am all that you hate

Rising from the ashes
A Dark messenger of sorrow
I'm the Stormcrow
I'm your woe

Cruel wings of destruction
Harbinger of your downfall
I'm the Stormcrow
I'm your woe

The evil in your closet
The wolf at your door
Everything that you're scared to wish for
I am it all

A whisper of freedom
Like echoes of Eden
I am where your future lies

I've given to you a burden to bear
The lowest of lows and highest of highs
Give into me and all we can share is
Our sweet demise, the tears in your eyes

Tales of love and loss, a soul once left forlorn
The crow it calls to you, the bearer of the storm

I'm the sorrow and the horror in your heart
Your ill oomen and the watcher in the dark
I'll play your twisted symphony once more
Your songs echoes through the nigth so silent
And you will see me

Rising from the ashes
A Dark messenger of sorrow
I'm the Stormcrow
I'm your woe

Cruel wings of destruction
2. The Best Of Times
The Best Of Times

I used to sit him outside
We would laugh and talk for hours
While he taught this little boy
What it means to be a man, a father

Given to me, given to me
A burden to bear, a crown to wear
A pain to remind me of what I should be

A lesson to learn, a dream to earn
Please the crowd and make him proud
I'll be all can be, show that I'm worthy

He was always there
He would always care
Never leave me scared

I miss him so much...

He would never judge
Never hold a grudge
When I made my choices
He stood by me

It was the best of times
If only someone had told me
How life can fade
How king can fall

I'd change my ways
And all the days I wasted
I'd spend with the ones that I love

Wounds can be opened
and all hearts can be broken
and all words left unspoken
Must then crawl to their graves

We will grow older
and our nights will grow colder
When the moment is over
It will never come back
3. A Night To Forget
When lights go down lets have another round
Come here my love, help me to search for my crown
A king of fools, I'm breaking all the rules
A drunken parody, I can't see the irony

This is my dynasty of pride and vanity
My broken self-esteem just can't face reality
Always the silent one, I was born to be undone
So I'll stay here in the darkness and I will

Leave everything
Leave everything behind me
My every sigh and every little lie
All that I have are memories so frozen
No one is flawless but baby I'm the worst

Pour me another one
Tell me I'll meet someone
A spoonful of sugar makes the poison go down

Feed my insanity
Write me a tragedy
Let's make a memory
A night to forget

Rain keeps pouring
I'll keep crawling

At three A.M I can't remember who I am
A sad and epic fail, I'm three on the Glasgow scale
Once again I vow "I'll make this right somehow"
It's just another lie, you'd cry If you could see me now

I'm such a travesty, living out my fallacy
Leave it to me to be the killer and the casualty
Late nights and neon lights
A thousand wrongs and zero rights
These are the steps that I must follow and I will

Leave everything
Leave everything behind me
My every sigh and every little lie
All that I have are memories so frozen
No one is flawless but baby I'm the worst

Pour me another one
Tell me I'll meet someone
A spoonful of sugar makes the poison go down

Feed my insanity
Write me a tragedy
Let's make a memory
A night to forget

Rain keeps pouring
I'll keep crawling

A shot of whiskey and some wine
A life in beautiful decline
I try to run, I try to hide
Intoxicated all the time

I'll build a bridge to watch it burn
Pour the ashes in the urn
and turn away just to start again

Pour me another one
Tell me I'll meet someone
A spoonful of sugar makes the poison go down

Feed my insanity
Write me a tragedy
Let's make a memory
A night to forget

Pour me another one
Tell me I'll meet someone
A spoonful of sugar makes the poison go down

Feed my insanity
Write me a tragedy
Let's make a memory
A night to forget

Rain keeps pouring
I'll keep crawling
4. I Will Build You A Rome
A word or a touch
All I need, I'm not asking for much
Take my hand, I will follow you home
With these hands I will build you a Rome
Where they will never find us

No need to be scared
I do not care about who you were
All that matters is right here and now
What will come there is no way to know
But we'll face it together

You'll never need to ask for more
You know you can have it all

[Chorus:]
My love, my soul, my heart
Are yours if you just want
To share your life with me
Forevermore

They will not burn our Rome
My heart will always be your home
As long as you will have me

Since we began
You have turned me into a man
Into someone I wished I could be
I believe and the gods they decree
We were meant for each other

You'll never need to ask for more
You know you can have it all

[Chorus]

The only heaven I need is you
Always so tender and so true
You are the spark that can light up my dark
Forever safe right here in my arms

And I don't just love you for who you are
But for what you have made out of me
Not for your beauty, so easy to see
But for making me now complete

[Solo]

[Chorus]
5. Too Tired To Run
There was a time when I could make your bright eyes gleam
Now smiles upon your face are few and far between
We were so young, naive and blind in all our pride
To see the warning, the turning of the tide

And I guess it's best we laid to rest
All that we had and all we hope for
It's time to close the door

Stand here by my side and watch the river flow
Throught fields once green, where our garden used to grow
Life goes by so fast and time waits for no one
Too long we stared into the sun
Now days are growing dark and we're too tired to run

Now that we've lost the flame, the beauty of it all
Our symmetry of souls reduced to metaphor
We live, we learn some things are impossible to do
And still I need you more than I want to

But I guess it's best we laid to rest
All that we had and all that we hoped for
It's time to close the door

I could've been worse, but I should've been better
Should've been there 'cause I said "forever"
Now I'm here wondering what
Should've, could've, would've been and

I could've said more 'cause the words they matter
Should've been strong so you wouldn't have shattered
But I'm here wondering what
Should've, could've, would've been

And I hope he gives more than I did
All that you need and all that you hope for
6. Constellation Of Tears
I will write a tale that is only mine
On the page the words entwine
My creation of beauty and of passion

Mortal heart now writing immortal love
Everything I'm dreaming of
I will fashion a goddess, my obsession

Stains on these pages
Constellation of tears
Like stars with scars

Dark design of my twisted mind
You're the final blight of a failed playwright
Figment of my madness
Verse of woe and sadness

Wild and free, you're the raging sea
And one day you will be the end of me
Your star will be brightest
In my constellation of tears

You'll shine so bright tonight

Broke my quill, I can't bend her to my will
And the love grows stronger still
While the rhymes they betray and the words they fail me

Erato, why do you hate me so?
Have some heart or let me go
I am old and I'm tired, uninspired

Stains on these pages
Constellation of tears
Like stars with scars

Dark design of my twisted mind
You're the final blight of a failed playwright
Figment of my madness
Verse of woe and sadness

Wild and free, you're the raging sea
And one day you will be the end of me
Your star will be brightest
In my constellation of tears

You'll shine so bright tonight

A flame that burns twice as bright
Burns half as long
Mine faded long ago

My queen will never claim her throne
I'll always be alone, my tale be left untold

Stains on these pages
Constellation of tears
Like stars with scars

Dark design of my twisted mind
You're the final blight of a failed playwright
Figment of my madness
Verse of woe and sadness

Wild and free, you're the raging sea
And one day you will be the end of me
Your star will be brightest
In my constellation

Dark design of my twisted mind
You're the final blight of a failed playwright
Figment of my madness
Verse of woe and sadness

Wild and free, you're the raging sea
And one day you will be the end of me
Your star will be brightest
In my constellation of tears

You'll shine so bright tonight
7. Antemortem
There's beauty in pain that paints every day
With colours that stay and won't fade away
In wounds that won't heal, in nightmares too real
They tell us that we can still feel

In fire we're forged and given a form
The harder the hammer the stronger the soul
For all of our tears and all of our scars
They remind us of who we are

One is for the heart we left behind
One is for a friend who said to goodbye
One is for the love we swore would never die
But that was in another lifetime

One is for the times we were denied
One is for the feelings locked inside
One is for the secrets that we've had to hide
But that was in another lifetime

We might've been kings
We might have been pawns
We might've been ducklings
We might have been swans

There's no grand design
There's only desire
You're either the pearl or the swine

For all that we've lost and our every tear
The choices we've made have brought us here
Everything we are, everything we have
We have built from fragments

One is for the heart we left behind
One is for a friend who said to goodbye
One is for the love we swore would never die
But that was in another lifetime

One is for the times we were denied
One is for the feelings locked inside
One is for the secrets that we've had to hide
But that was in another lifetime

But that was in another lifetime

Please believe in me
Because the man you see
is not the man I used to be

We may always be alone and broken
But we have survived, we are alive

Please believe in me
Because the man you see
is not the man I used to be

We may always be alone and broken
But we have survived, we are alive

One is for the heart we left behind
One is for a friend who said to goodbye
One is for the love we swore would never die
But that was in another lifetime

One is for the times we were denied
One is for the feelings locked inside
One is for the secrets that we've had to hide
But that was in another lifetime

One is for the heart we left behind
One is for a friend who said to goodbye
One is for the love we swore would never die
But that was in another lifetime

One is for the times we were denied
One is for the feelings locked inside
One is for the secrets that we've had to hide
But that was in another lifetime
8. My Heart Beats For No One
Once again I'm in too deep
Once again there is no sleep
Underneath these scarlit skies
Where you and me are but a stillborn dream
And if there'll be a brand new dawn
Can you tell me

Where is my home and where is my haven
Where is the heart my name has been graven in

You're still a saint in my eyes
But God I am so tired
So take the knife
And sever the last lifeline
It's over

Now one must walk alone
One is left behind
This is who we are
This is where we stand

Strangers in the night
Our wounds open wide
Know that when you're gone
My heart beats for no one

Now I'm at the end of my rope
Out of strength and out of hope
You can have what's left of me
But if you do tread carefully
For now my mind is a minefield
My heart's a haunted house

Yours is a taste that used to be sweeter
Your every word keeps slaying the dreamer

I'll gather the pieces one last time
I'm not ok, I'm not fine
So dead inside
Leaving heaven denied behind
It's over

Now one must walk alone
One is left behind
This is who we are
This is where we stand

Strangers in the night
Our wounds open wide
Know that when you're gone
My heart beats for no one

Now one must walk alone
One is left behind
This is who we are
This is where we stand

Strangers in the night
Our wounds open wide
Know that when you're gone
My heart beats for no one
9. I Am Legion
[instrumental]
10. Rising Sun
You always tried so hard to hide
All the pain you held inside
A little piece of heaven
Faded, tainted memory
You always smiled and played your part
A jaded soul and hardened heart
Like a child you stumbled in the dark

These are the hands that shelter you
When the rain begins to pour
This is the heart than listens
When you're down, can take no more
No matter what you're not alone
I am always by your side
I will be here when the worlds collide

Let it rain and let it thunder
You'll be safe from going under
You will not drown, I won't let you down
And when the winter comes I'll keep you warm

There's hope in every heartbeat
Beautiful and complete
When you're in too deep
You can always call on me
For no mountain is too high
No ocean is too wide
For me to come and be your rising sun

I am the one to light the way
Through the darkest of your days
A beacon in the night
To guide your ship back to the shore
A rain to wash away the stains
Of a thousand yesterdays
There's no need for you to be afraid

Let it rain and let it thunder
You'll be safe from going under
You will not drown, I won't let you down
And when the winter comes I'll keep you warm

There's hope in every heartbeat
Beautiful and complete
When you're in too deep
You can always call on me
For no mountain is too high
No ocean is too wide
For me to come and be your rising sun

I will always be here standing at your door
And my arms are open wide
Waiting here until your wave will reach my shore
Waiting for the eventide

Let all your grief cascade on me
I'll be the sea where they'll drown

There's hope in every heartbeat
Beautiful and complete
When you're in too deep
You can always call on me
For no mountain is too high
No ocean is too wide
For me to come and be our rising sun
For me to come and be our rising sun
11. On The Shore
I know "forever" is asking too much
But what if this moment is all that we've got
What if the morning will leave us so frail
Leave us alone to face another day

I'm trying so hard but it's never enough
You try to stay strong but the things can get tough
We used to say "That will never be us"
Now "Ashes to ashes and dust to dust"

Anything you want, everything you need
You can find it all in me
But if I'm too much or I'm not enough...

When you've hoisted your canvass and you're ready to sail
I wanna tell you please don't think that you've failed
If your ship is too small and there is room for just one
I will stay on the shore so you can move on

Anything you want, everything you need
You can find it all in me
But if I'm too much or I'm not enough...

I'm standing on the shore of my emotions
Waiting for the water to rise and touch my
soul

And every forsaken night
All I wanted was to be right by your side
But you did not hear me
For I never spoke aloud my mind
I never cried

Anything you want, everything you need
You can find it all in me
But if I'm too much or I'm not enough...

Anything you want, everything you need
You can find it all in me
But if I'm too much or I'm not enough...

I'm standing on the shore...

Anything you want, everything you need
You can find it all in me
