Fantasma Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level DaveÅkerfeldt
1. Men Of Rust (6:20)
There was a time when we were
As close as hearts can be
Your pain and fear, your dreams and hopes
All that you shared with me

I was just a child back then
As I grew up I had to see
Not all those wishes that we have
Become reality

In all those years of doing nothing
But killing time
Having lost my faith, my strength, my power
Was my hardest crime...

I know that you tried hard to save me
When I was about to drown
But your way of trying to help me up
In fact just dragged me down

You've put me in a golden cage
All luxuries we shared
You hoped I would feel safe and warm
But in fact I just felt scared

After all those years of doing nothing
But killing time
In the end I felt like a prisoner
Of my image you designed...

In a moment of rage I broke out of that cage
Spread my wings and found I could fly

In a moment of pain I broke free from the chain
Much too long I had lived a lie

In the end I just had too much
Of the getting in and out of touch
Of all that moving forth and moving back again

Men of steel turn into men of rust
Before they either bite the dust
Or simply run away if they still can...
2. Perfect Remedy (5:19)
People like us are never where they want to be
People like us suffer from their incapacity
People like us never trust the world they see
People like us are lacking self-security

People like us want to know the outcome in advance
People like us are afraid they might miss out on their one great chance
People like us are known for their sensitivity
People like us sometimes drown in melancholy

Am I good for you
Are you good for me
Are we each other's poison or each other's only therapy

If you believe in me
I will believe in you
I'll believe in all your crazy dreams
And keep fingers crossed one day they'll all come true

People like us always have their concerns and fears
People like us always have one eye filled with tears
People like us think a lot more than they speak
To people like us they all come when it's help they seek

People like us you all turn to when you feel bad
But those people like us are the first ones you forget
Because people like us don't fit into your world at all
But it's people like us that always catch you when you fall

Am I good for you
Are you good for me
Are we each other's poison or each other's only therapy

If you believe in me
I will believe in you
I'll believe in all your crazy dreams
And keep my fingers crossed one day they'll all come true

People like us always reach out for the stars
People like us have a heart covered with scars
People like us may not be easy, that is true
But only people like us can understand each other the way we do...

Am I good for you
Are you good for me
Are we each other's poison or each other's only therapy

I'll be good for you
Like you'll be good for me
You are my perfect remedy

If you believe in me
Like I believe in you...
3. Fine With Me (3:33)
Caught in ambitions, but without any idea
Focused on expectations, but driven be fear

With irrational movements of no rhythm or rhyme
We are performing a most absurd play
All those actors are crazy
The director is on drugs
But I found it's the much better way

To look into the sun
And leave my shadow behind
Set sail for the open sea

So whatever may come
Or whatever may go
In the end it's all fine with me...

...I really don?t care
I'm arriving on schedule, only I don't know where

With your purse full of money, but nothing to spend it on
Too busy to get anything done
Always in a hurry, and still always too late
Your battle just cannot be won, you better look

Into the sun
And leave your shadow behind
Set sail for the open sea

So whatever may come
Or whatever may go
In the end it's all fine with me...

That journey we're on does not follow our ideas and plans
We're clutching at deadlines and schedules that never make sense
How stupid those things upon which we all seem to depend
As long as the journey feels good why care where it may end...
4. A Day By The Sea (5:47)
I went down to the sea
Alone on that stormy day
Hoped the wind and the rain
Might wash my pain away

So I took that ring
And I threw it out on the sea
The ring just sank down
But the pain still was there with me

Picking up the pieces of my life
When I look back it still cuts like a knife
To see us both give up so easily
And much too soon

Did you really think it was too late
The only thing you should have done was to have some faith
In me when I needed it the most
But you never did

We have only two hands
So we can't hold too much at once
And for some things in life
We just get one single chance

As long as it's good
We wish it may never stop
But to pick up something new
There's always one thing we have to drop

Those mistakes we made
May help us to make amends
But it is so hard to see things like that
While you stand there with empty hands

But I know one day love
Is going to come back on silent wings
Now that we know what we have lost
Let's see what tomorrow brings
Fantasma  
5. Right Now... (2:04)
Love is a pretender, an actor, a clown
It lifts us higher, but it lets us down
Love is the traveller, that never arrives
But is love the saviour, that saves our lifes

All that I wanted...
... its all I wanted to know
... its all I wish you'd have shown me
... and still all I want to believe in
Right now til the end of time

Love pays us visits, but it never stays long
It may be righteous, but mostly it's wrong
Love is indifferent, it makes no deal
Love lasts forever, but is forever for real

All that I wanted...
... its all I wanted to know
... its all I wish you'd have shown me
... and still all I want to believe in
Right now til the end of time

Show me, tell me, save me,
Save this heart of mine
And I show you, tell you, hold you
Til the end of time

I know it is not fair
That I bring all that here
I hope you won't regret too soon
That I'm the one you chose

I know it ain't fair
And that I may ask too much
But it has been so long ago
That someone has come so close...

Love is posessive, love takes control
Love is a stealer,
So love, steal my soul
6. ... Til The End Of Time (5:16)
Love is a pretender, an actor, a clown
It lifts us higher, but it lets us down
Love is the traveller, that never arrives
But is love the saviour, that saves our lifes

All that I wanted...
... its all I wanted to know
... its all I wish you'd have shown me
... and still all I want to believe in
Right now til the end of time

Love pays us visits, but it never stays long
It may be righteous, but mostly it's wrong
Love is indifferent, it makes no deal
Love lasts forever, but is forever for real

All that I wanted...
... its all I wanted to know
... its all I wish you'd have shown me
... and still all I want to believe in
Right now til the end of time

Show me, tell me, save me,
Save this heart of mine
And I show you, tell you, hold you
Til the end of time

I know it is not fair
That I bring all that here
I hope you won't regret too soon
That I'm the one you chose

I know it ain't fair
And that I may ask too much
But it has been so long ago
That someone has come so close...

Love is posessive, love takes control
Love is a stealer,
So love, steal my soul
7. Fantasma-Theme (0:38)
[Instrumental]
8. The Real Escape (4:24)
I took a look at myself
I dropped all my defenses
After fooling myself
For so long

I broke all my habits
I gave up my pretences
I faced all those things
So crazy and wrong

I had reached a point
Where I could fall no deeper
Right there I knew what to do
Eventually

I know you thought
I was just running away
But the real escape
I had made years ago
Deep inside of me

Are there just no Forevers in life
Are they all just illusion
Just something we build to protect us
From feeling so lost and lonely

Would it be wiser to be
Happy when things are just good
Instead of yearning for perfection
That we'll never find most likely

That advice I have given
To friends and that so much more
Applied to myself
Came back to my mind

How desperately I must have
Tried to believe
That in my own little world
Things were perfectly right

I lied to myself
I despised myself
I denied myself
But the pain grew stronger

I will lie to myself
I will despise myself
I will deny myself
Not one day longer

Because there is no such thing at all
At least not for you and me
9. Whatever It Takes (2:10)
So whatever it takes
With every dream that first broke
And then moved out of sight
Another door to my heart
Has been closed and locked tight

So nothing gets in there
And there can be no doubt
There is so much inside
That can't find a way out

So whatever it takes
I will do it to unlock these doors

Don't you think this is
What life is about after all
We must stand up no matter
How often we fall

Because once we give in
All the doors remain closed
And under lock and key they will keep
The things we need most

So whatever it takes
We should do it to unlock these doors
10. Battle Of Words (3:42)
[Instrumental]
11. May You (4:33)
We hide when it's close
But reach out from the distance
For the love we need
For the warmth we seek

We all share the same hope
That one day we'll find the right one
Who is worth our trust
Whose heart beats just for us, but...

What if that was here all the time only we never noticed
What if that was here but we've been to blind to see it
What if that was here only we did never reach out for it
What if we already had the best there was to come

Plans that we made
All vanished into nowhere
We carried too much load
Down a winding road

Fragile we are
Sometimes we all need someone
Need a heart that feels
Need a hand that heals us

What if that was here all the time only we never noticed
What if that was here but we've been to blind to see it
What if that was here only we did never reach out for it
What if we already had the best there was to come

I hope it wasn't here
Let's hope it was not here

What if that was here all the time only we never noticed
What if that was here but we've been to blind to see it
Let's hope it was not here only we did never reach out for it
Hope ahead of us is still the best there is to come...

So may you find luck
May you become as happy as can be
May the sun shine on whichever way you'll choose to take

May you feel allright
May you have all that you have been dreaming of
And may your smile come from your heart and be no fake

May you find love
May someone give you all I just could not give
And may he still love you when you are old and gray

So take good care of yourself
And I hope you know I really mean it when I say
Of all those years we shared I don't regret a day
12. Ghosts-Intro (1:52)
[Instrumental]
13. Ghosts (5:52)
If we give up before we ever fought
If we only do what we are told
And think we know it all, but never really learnt
If we turn the page before the page has turned

If we close doors, we never opened up
If we don't really start a thing before we stop
And never speak the truth although we do not lie
If we're full of plans but never dare to try...

Ghosts we are, made of flesh and bone
With empty minds and hearts of stone
The seed that was not meant to thrive
Existing but not really alive

Ghosts we are, though there's blood in our veins
Born free we chose to live in chains
Thought we were on our way, but in fact we weren't
So we burned out, before we ever burned...

If we take no risk, afraid that we might loose
And neverever make a choice, but let the others choose
If we don't love, afraid we won't be loved
If we long for touch but keep our fingers gloved

If we've got it good but even though feel bad
And should be happy but always feel sad
If we crash down before we tried to fly
Then we are dead so long before we die

Ghosts we are, made of flesh and bone
With empty minds and hearts of stone
The seed that was not meant to thrive
Existing but not really alive

Ghosts we are, though there' blood in our veins
Born free we chose to live in chains
Thought we were on our way, but in fact we weren't
So we burned out before we ever burned...
