When the City Is Quiet Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. If Only (4:45)
They say you're hidden in
the darkness but you see
Circle's confusion
Why I must kneel to you?
Is there hope after hope?
No, I'm asking for your name

Praying in vain
What does salvation mean?
Dust to dust
Womb to tomb
Ain't no Gift of God?
No...!

If only the suffering of children
If only the wars 'd never been
If only the lies never blind us
I'm waiting for answers still

The only certainly
is ending in a tomb
heading for nowhere
How can we keep the faith?
if we keep falling down
falling down one by one

Forever lost
Forsaken for what I am
Dust to dust
Womb to tomb
Ain't no Gift of God?
No...!
2. Ecstasy (4:10)
I'm lost in my hidden fantasies
Carried by my perverse longings
I feel anxiety
Bring me your ecstasy and feel
my moist skin

Wax, falling down like tears
Your curves are all I need
Surrender purity
And give in...

Come, rip my soul
My aching fears
There's no time left
Just bite my lips
Don't wanna be alone right now...

We melted to each other's arms
and slurped on each
others sharp charms
I'm losing sanity
Bring me your ecstasy and aim
Don't be ashamed

Wax, falling down like tears
Your curves are all I need
Surrender purity
And give in...

Come, rip my soul
My aching fears
There's no time left
Just bite my lips
Don't wanna be alone right now...

I can't resist the heat in me
the heat in me.
No, I can't deal
I just wanna feel
eroticism and endless warmth
Wanna make you crawl and
make you explode!
3. So Close So Far (5:06)
Never could you let me near your heart
I am not ashamed to love you
Hold me tight
I'll hold you close to me
Choose tonight

Can't you look into my eyes
and see the pain I'm feeling?
I wonder if you have a heart
I tried my best but
I was not enough

(So close so far...)
Why is the dream of your cold beauty so far?
(Can feel so far...)
Why I have written all these love words for us?
(So close so far...)
Why are you near and I can feel you so far?
(Can feel so far...)
It must be only my fault

To you, my tears mean nothing
Can't you see?
The distance here is miles between us
I can't cope
I'll kiss you with my glance
And tears will rise

Can't you look into my eyes
and see the pain I'm feeling?
Have you ever cared for me?
I tried my best with you
I'm sorry, It was not enough

(So close so far...)
Why is the dream of your cold beauty so far?
(Can feel so far...)
Why I have written all these love words for us?
(So close so far...)
Why are you near and I can feel you so far?
(Can feel so far...)
Why did I sacrifice myself?
4. Endless Road (4:41)
I've been running all my life
Always lost in dreams
Time goes by...
Screams are growing
and night is falling
Beware... the darkness

All I have wanted never is
My world is empty just like me
I won't look back at my own past
I'm living a lie

Time is neverending
Time makes me sigh
Time... I can never find out why it flies

There's no exit
I can't breath
There's no hope for me
Trust no one
Crazy thoughts and
disturbed confessions
drives me insane...
The end is near...

All I have wanted never is
My world is empty just like me
I won't look back at my own past
I'm living a lie
5. Sincerely (4:40)
Thinking of you
is clarity
I need to confess you
that I've never loved as I love you now
Many sleepless nights
Till you're in my life

I'm so sorry if I
If I've hurt you
Now clouds at last have gone
Sometimes words can't explain
what I am feeling
Many sleepless nights
But you're now with me

If I tell you sincerely
That my love is pure
Don't ask 'bout the past
Please just believe
I've been in darkness for so long...
Thought things have been going wrong
You've been always standing strong
Never, no one has made me feel
So complete
6. True Friendship Never Dies (3:57)
Please believe in me
believe in me now
as I've believe in you
for so many years we have been friends

Always being around
Always being near
Friendship that has died
has never been the real one

All that we've lived through
And all that we've planned
Are our lives and I don't
Don't wanna change them and
All that we've lived through
And all that we've planned
Is in my mind and I
Will be there for you

There is nothing here
that you'd never do
You make me see sunshine
through the rain and the winter days too

Never being unkind
Never away
Friendship that has died
has never been the real one
7. We're Here Now (4:20)
You don't believe in me
Things never come easy
Only want what I deserve
Nothings for free

Black crows in the sky above
But I'm not finished
Stand up, hit the road, go on
I won't stop here
Doesn't hurt me

Your cold gaze, no more!

The time has come
We're here now
Time to complete what
We have begun
A long way gone
See the end now
Prove to yourself
That they were wrong

You think you know it all
your scorn wont get me
my life wont fit in your mind
just let me be

Now my fate belongs to me
Won't follow others
Now I'll decide where to go
I won't be here
They won't find me

Your cold gaze, no more!
8. Redemption (3:26)
Is not the first time
Another deception has begun
I was you, you were me once
Won't miss the things I left behind

No more lies frozen in time
Please don't try to stay by my side
I can sleep
I can sleep at last

There's no redemption
I've fallen
I've fallen down
But now I'm glad that
I'm not with you
We've all been left and
We've broken
We have the choice
It's time to wake up
Open your eyes

All these years dying
Trapped in a place where I can't escape
I am the one you despise
I was lost inside your world

No more lies frozen in time
Please don't try to stay by my side
I was weak
I was weak in madness
9. For You (3:53)
I can only say goodbye
In my dreams when you appear
I've lost my best friend
My partner of tears
It's our farewell
My guardian has gone

Feeling you so close tonight
I only wish you can enjoy
a world with no lies
where Sun shines just for you
where the Moon now embraces your soul

No one to share with
There's no one to lead me
Feeling alone is being dead
Why did you leave me?
Say why you and not me
I'm the one who has buried my dreams

Here everything is just memories of you
I'm alive but my soul died with you...

No one to share with...

No one to share with
This song I have written
Hear my voice, won't be memories apart
Who will I care for?
Together, sleepless
It has no sense now if you are not here
10. Enough Is Enough (3:28)
Lonely times
Long lost are the days I am longing
Slowly gone, now things have changed
I can feel it

This can't be
Enough is enough
You've gone too far
You've crossed the line
Lost so much time
And now I see
This must end here

Now times passed
No more are those days in my mind now
Now you're gone
I'm free at last
Free from you now!

This can't be...

This can't be
Enough is enough
You've gone too far
You've crossed the line
Lost so much time
And now I see
This has to end
11. Out In The Cold (3:58)
There's no ache inside
the cold emptiness surrounds it
stone heart, no feelings now
that must be, now, the only answer

There's no way out from here
I can not see the sun again
the stormy clouds that rule my life
will prevail

Frozen are the days that run my life
The desperation I can feel
Holding on to dreams that can't come back
There's no way to hide from what's real

In my hollow life
I feel now my conscience must return
flesh heart, feelings now
pain is back, with it must come the answer

Now there's a way from here
I can start seeing the sun again
the stormy clouds will soon go by
won't return?
12. When The City Is Quiet (6:52)
When the night covers us
City's quiet
I can. can hear a voice from the dark
I can't even keep out
Is this a moan from me...?
No please!
No more suffering!
Destiny is calling me now
Pulse gets faster at each moment
Shall I die?
I'll decide
I'm afraid of the unknown
Of unseen

Maybe it's what I believe
Something's killing
Something's killing me fast deep inside
Nightmares emerging here
Future is uncertain,
hidden is my ending
Will my soul return to me?
Agony is killing me
Shall I die?
I'll decide
No more hopes just in vain
I've decided

I'll keep fighting
I don't want to die
Sickness's in my mind but
It hurts me
I'll keep fighting
Let me try
Don't wanna to die!
13. A Merced De La Lluvia (3:24)
Universos de papel
Fantasmagorica herida
tan solo mia
Dicta lo que hemos de hacer
sin miedo a tropezar
bajo esta piel

Existe un mundo que tal vez
tu no quieras ver
por el momento

Sin ti, mi alma se nubla
Es algo dificil de entender
Aqui,
A merced de la lluvia
Todo se ve distinto

Silogismos que atender
frente a este laberinto
que es uno mismo
Invitan a enloquecer
cuando la luz se va
bajo esa piel

Existen mundos que tal vez
tu no puedas ver
de mil tormentos

Sin ti, mi alma se nubla
Es algo dificil de entender
Aqui,
A merced de la lluvia
Todo se ve distinto

De mis cenizas volvere
(anclado a esa voz, que grita en mi interior)
En donde quiera que tu estes
(Disipare el dolor que aumenta nuestra sed)
