The Burden of Hope Lyrics

(7)
Submitted by level Carlos Acioli
1. Breathe In (6:21)
in quiet desperation we simply fade away
in hopeless isolation we close our eyes today
one million moments, in a whisper their gone
one stolen lifetime, how were we so wrong?

waiting for you to breathe
waiting for something to believe
waiting for you to breathe
something to...

the fragile state of grace, the lines upon your face
the way you cry and shake, the moment that you break
if only to learn to survive
to be the last ones alive

waiting for you to breathe
waiting for something to believe
waiting for you to breathe
something to...

waiting for you to breathe
waiting for something to believe
waiting for you to leave
something to...
2. Faded (6:01)
3. All This Time (4:56)
4. Again and Again (5:45)
i stand, envelop, descend
mindlessly waiting and breathing
close, wait, silence and fate
watching the world as it’s sinking

and i fall

dreaming, awake, shiver and break
drag it back into the sunlight
come back and go, leave it alone
cuz morning is almost in sight

and i want to know where to come from, where to go

you can be sure, i’m gone
been waiting around for too long
your calling my name, it’s always the same
again and again

i can’t remeber the last time
i prayed for a night in the rain
and i want to take every last bit of you
and shoot you straight into my veins
5. In Your Arms (4:31)
this is the last wave of your infinite indifference
this is a shade of your denial
this is the consequence of uncreating disbelief
forgive me - for now

this is the moment of chaotic disassembly
this is the dawn of nothing new
this is the acquiescence of sublime divinity
forgive me - for now

all i ever wanted in your eyes

hold me a moment - don’t slip so far
wrap me forever - in your arms
6. Voices in My Walls (Lillian Axe cover) (4:37)
Where not here to hurt you, the voices told me,
then they laughed away.
Sit, relax, stay calm Now they control me
they rule my day

Everybody needs someone to talk to
With a fire and a body that can touch you,
Even now I think I need somebody,
Don't think that I could ever have my time alone

Cause I'm a captive soul,
To the voices of my walls
Fear has settled in, my room commands me,
Keeps me warm inside,
Sleep exists no more, a living zombie
I'm mystified.

'Cause I'm a captive soul,
Listen in wonder, the secret I've been told
By the voices in my walls
"Come with us give us control,
and we'll possess your heart and soul,
You'll see new colours you can't describe,
and feel strange things you've never tried.
Candelight for me, a fading sunset,
Take me away
I'm a captive soul
Living in wonder the secrets I've been told
By the voices in my walls
You gotta believe me
The secrets amaze and confuse me with no self-control
The voices are calling me now
I'm a captive soul
7. To See Through the Grey (4:39)
8. Waiting (4:31)
pale was you vision - the life that you lead
you let it slip away
you thought you could go away from it all
it came back to you

and now your falling down down once again
what do you want from me?

waiting for an answer to come - what if it never does
waiting, your heart opens up, but no one comes

so now your looking for time to return
the seconds tick away
when it’s said and done, you look for me
but i’m not there
9. Stolen Sigh (6:32)
a stolen sigh, a breath away - a tearful eye, the hope to see you another day

come so quick to me, and i must go
the night brings our hearts together, although they know

in our arms entwined - in our love divine
in our world so seperate, yet near to touch
in our hearts we yearn, in our souls we burn
in our lives so unknown, but known to us

comfort comes in all the shades of blue i see in your eyes
and when i take my leave and part from you
something inside me dies

in our arms entwined - in our love divine
in our world so seperate, yet near to touch
in our hearts we yearn, in our souls we burn
in our lives so unknown, but known to us

a lost goodbye - a world away, a broken heart
the hope to see you another day

take me away - can’t stand the pain

a stolen sigh - a lost goodbye
a breath away - a world away
a tearful eye - a broken heart
no hope to see another day
10. The Breathing End (6:42)
the failure in your eyes, the crying in your heart
it makes me die
a final goodbye, no days left to try
so away i’ll turn

when the love finally leaves tonight
says its last farewell, is it too late
i can no longer find the way, the way to make you stay
so i’ll just pray

the way that i choose to see - the heartache brings back the memories
its all been left here with no further days
and then we try to taste the breathing end

a sign from the end, no time to contend
its all in vain
just turn away, i cannot stand the pain
within your eyes

when the love finally leaves tonight
says its last farewell, is it too late
i can no longer find the way, the way to make you stay
so i’ll just pray
