Autumnal Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Swan Lake (7:59)
[Chorus I]
Her soul will be a swan
Until
She feels
The love of nobleman
Forever her soul will be a swan
Until
She feels
The love of nobleman

In swan lake
In swan lake

Tired to ride in the royal hunt
To listen sweet lies that I am wont
I am the prince!
The future king!
Boomed in my head my mother's voice
Take to wife! should be my choice
Oh, cruel fate!
That my soul hate!

To forget all I fled into the woods
Searching preys goods
Then I saw the lake
Lost in the deep forest
And its water chorused
An odd melody

Swans of nice white feather on the dusk
Swam in a dance in harmonious masque
Hunter I am!
My bow was prepared

[Bridge]
But her beauty was shown me in the depth
Spouting, silent, from the lake
And her pale look kept a sad poem
Lost in despair
Dragged into the warlock's lair
In the shadows

Like a night tide
Together we cried
Our lips sealed its secrets way
And my doubts died
But when came the dawn
My dream sank covered by dark waters

[Chorus II]
My princess's tears fall in the moonglade
The lake is afraid
The night shows the spell
Then I can feel my heart run into my chest
Now I know my quest
In the hell of the storm
I'll break her swan-form
So inside the waves
We will find our graves
But the warlock's curse will be broken
The Rothboart's curse will be broken
The Rothbart's curse broken

[Chorus III]
Our spirits will be free
Will fly
The sky
Over the green lake's trees
Forever our spirits will be free
Will fly
The sky
Over the green lake's trees
Remember us in the stars
Remember us in the stars
2. On the Hill of Dreams (4:45)
In my room
When from the window the night falls
Sweet perfume
That takes my eyes with the dark call
In my mind
The light escapes, the shadows crawls
Just behind
Of the dream's walls

[Bridge]
Then my lonely heart
Rides on the wind
And one sigh hits my spirit
When I look the gloom
And see her eyes...

[Chorus]
Like a stream
My soul flows
On the Hill of Dreams
With own glow
Silent scream
Darkness's wife
From the Hill of Dreams
Take my life!

Mystic place
Through the night's journey goes my way
Like a trace
Of olden tales that ever stay
So in time
My future could be yesterday
Paradigm
Of the dusk gray
3. Phantom Queen (4:03)
In my love
I have dreamt of you
Obtaining a view
A cow in the cattle
In my dream
I was in the fight
Focussing the light
A crow in the battle

[Bridge]
But when, at my end, I meet the Great Queen
I shall die happy because I'll have her seen

[Chorus]
And in the fray when I am getting colder
I may support a black crow on my shoulder
My black crow just crackle
Casting me a shackle
And then, I'll know, before feeling me frozen
That I have been by the Phantom Queen chosen
She will be my lover...

The Great Queen
From above
Phantom Queen
Got my love
She is the queen tyrannic
Of love, warfare and panic
The Great Queen
Has ay been
Phantom Queen

At the end
She is there and shows
How my blood-stained clothes
Washes in the river

This is the time of worshipping her figure
Before she extracts from the kidneys its vigour
4. An End So Cold (4:00)
An end so cold
For love which disappoints the heart, so cold
As flowers she tight holds

This is her end
No one can mend
What death calls for to the cold waters

This is her end
No life to spend
Only an end so cold

[Chorus]
Nettles for harming
And orchids for charming
Poppies for doom
And violets for gloom

An end so cold
With flowers which reminds her pain, so cold
As love in days of old

The end's coming fast
As water runs past
Flowers compose a scene so pleasing

Is up the past
Peaceful at last
Only an end so cold

[Chorus]
Nettles for harming
And orchids for charming
Poppies for doom
And violets for gloom
Daisies for cleanness
And pansies for meanness
For death and sorrow
One forget-me-not

"Too much of water hast thou Poor Ophelia"
5. Faustus (4:08)
[Chorus]
Faustus
The time has come for you
And here's your sentence
That is your fate and
It's no use repentance
You must pay with your soul, Faustus
You have come to your goal, Faustus
You wished the deepest
Knowledge of tomorrow
And power to clean off
Grievance and sorrow
We have made your wish true, Faustus
Now we are over you

Love, your force may get me free
And show me how to flee
From my fate
When my time is over
Love, you help me to understand
That all is in my hand
Just today
Not far away

[Bridge]
Love..., I've fallen in distress and dismay
Because I'm waited
Predestinated
Fated...!

[Chorus]
Mephisto, the intriguer
For your soul, is eager
There's a compact you've consented
With blood your soul have been rended

Knowledge, I prayed to you
But now my soul to love I have just paid
Me, a renegade
Love..., I've fallen in distress and dismay
Because I'm waited
Predestinated
Fated..!
6. Don't Look Back (4:36)
Orpheus, don't look back
Play your music!

You've been able
And thus runs the fable
To rescue your lover
Going downwards to hell

Great musician
Charming compositions
Could play to discover
That Hell's under spell

[Bridge I]
In your motion
Keep away the emotions
And your wife from Hades
To world you'll restore
Just be wary
This is necessary
'Cause only your lady's
What you adore

[Chorus]
Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah! Ah!

You'll recover
Your mild lover
Don't look and
Feel her hand
May Apollo
You could follow
Right your track
Don't look back!

[Bridge II]
Play such tender
As a love defender
And go ahead forever
Never turn around
Play such gentle
That your instrumental
Song can terror sever
With this sound

[Chorus]

Though it's near
What you fear
In your heart is the music
Don't look back
Just attack
With new notes your song
7. When the Sun is Gone (4:38)
Men, in the hardest part of the world
Men, looking always upwards to Lord

[Bridge]
In their own, with open sight
Dreaming of light in the lonely night
They'll survive regardless of the new modern times

[Chorus]
Everytime
They are wondering
What's the sense of life
Desert's answering
When the sun is gone
And all's darkening
That life's just one day more
One day more
Meaningful...
Plentiful...
Perfect...
Venture...

People in blue
Free nobles who are riding across the dunes
Princes of men
They can see in the start, the end

[Chorus]
Everytime
They are wondering
What's the sense of life
Desert's answering
When the sun is gone
And all's darkening
That life's just one day more
It's just one day more
Everytime
They are wondering
What's the sense of life
Desert's answering
When the sun is gone
And all's darkening
It's only one day more
One day more
Meaningful...
Only one day more
8. For Her (4:37)
After the war
I was for ten of those years of yore
Lost in the sea
By a harsh god's agency

But through the years
Love urged my will to be solid and clear
And for my wife
I risked the loss of my life

[Bridge I]
For her
I did not eat lotus from its twig
For her
The sorceress could not change me into pig
For her
I blinded the Cyclops' single eye
The cannibals did not make me die
All for her

[Chorus]
For her
I worked my way
For her
I moved away
From my Destiny
Shipping across the sea
For her
I could resist
In my frail heart, the Fortune's twist
And I was the last
True hero from the past
Sailor, come here...
I hear a trace of the ocean noise
Fascinated...!
The move of waves is like a voice
Hero come near
I can hold on with a tight rope
Captivated...!
I've got a hope

[Bridge II]
For her
I could put up with the nymph for long
For her
I could escape from the soft sirens song
For her
I had to face the women delight
And nobody could defeat me in fight
Just for her
9. The Enchanted Forest (3:32)
In the skyline
Of the dark light
Searching the sign
Of ancient rites

I found the voice
In the old willows
I made my choice
My mind I could saw

[Chorus]
The enchanted forest
And my soul saw
The enchanted forest

In the autumn
The black cat laid
The leaf came to dance with the maid
The mist whispered
In the deep rain
Secrets forgotten so old that I saw

[Chorus]
By the old path
The coach travels
With silent wrath
Through the wise trees
Horses galloped so
My odd eyes could saw
10. The Sphinx (4:27)
Who knows the whisper of the secrets of our lives?
The treasure of Chimera's daughter
Perhaps could be the truth of the world's strife
Or will I just find the end of time?

[Chorus]
Body of lion
I look your face of woman
In defiance
Of your enigmas
Wings of eagle
Who devours men for Hera
Broken riddle!
Listen your end!

You, who lies in hidden dark seas of sand
Among the dunes
You, malicious creature, who enslaves my land
With ancient runes
The man is my answer
The dream of one romancer
The son of the heaven
Whose deadly sins are seven
My hope is the knowledge
The sacred wisdom
My word is the sentence

Jump to the void!
My arms destroyed!

Although the Monster was defeated by the man
The olden secrets not left the world
Perhaps it was forgotten since the life began
Or is the man himself the Sphinx?
11. Fallen Leaves Waltz (2:37)
