Wings of Forever Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level DevilDoll
1. Prelude To Destiny (1:45)
[Music by Williams]

[guitar solo Andrea Martongelli]
2. Wings of Forever (5:31)
[Words and Music - Williams]

The kingdom lies in shadows, now the sun is burning grey
will we even live to see tomorrow?
The echoes of the battlefield still ringing in our cars
Now our future dark and stained with tears of sorrow

The Knights who went before us calling in the wind.
Sill our hearts with honour, now our journey must begin
Together we are standing tall, together we will be forever
Side by side for all eternity

Wings of forever we soar in the sky
United in battle in glory we die
Wings of forever our journey goes on
And we all raise our to the stars far beyond

We cross the distant mountains, riding on through wind and rain
Beneath us in the valley lie the warriors so brave
A place for them is grand by the wisdom of the kings
And we'll join them when they toll the judgement bell

The Knights who went before us calling in the wind
Sill our hearts with honour, now our journey must begin
Together we are standing tall, together we will be forever
Side by side for all eternity

Wings of forever we soar in the sky
United in battle in glory we die
Wings of forever our journey goes on
And we all raise our to the stars far beyond

[Solo (Totman) / Solo (Bickers)]

The Knights who went before us calling in the wind
Sill our hearts with honour, now our journey must begin
Together we are standing tall, together we will be forever
Side by side for all eternity

Wings of forever we soar in the sky
United in battle in glory we die
Wings of forever our journey goes on
And we all raise our eyes to the stars far beyond
Wings of forever we soar in the sky
United in battle in glory we die
Wings of forever our journey goes on
And our wings all raise to the stars far beyond
3. Far Away (4:48)
[Words and Music - Williams]

Legend tells a secret, buried deep in time
A may to free our people, to free them from these crimes
Lost beneath fountain, across the distant sea
We'll journey there together in search of liberty

We board the ship together and sail into the night
No land to see before us, we follow stars so bright
Then the land is sighted, our journey almost done
We leave the ship unguarded, the legend drivers us on

Through wind and rain we travel, onwards 'cross the land
Guided by the starlight, towards the eastern sands

Far away in a bygone age
When the stories all were true
Legends told by the men of old
Have brought us here today

The fountain stands before us, our mission is complete
We search beneath the water, a sword lies our feet
The sword will bring us glory, our freedom is assured
We will return to save our land from suffering endured

Through wind and rain we travel, onwards 'cross the land
Guided by the starlight, towards the eastern sands

Far away in a bygone age
When the stories all were true
Legends told by the men of old
Have brought us here today

[Solo (Bickers) / Solo (Williams) / Solo (Totman)]

Through wind and rain we travel, onwards 'cross the land
Guided by the starlight, towards the eastern sands

Far away in a bygone age
When the stories all were true
Legends told by the men of old
Have brought us here today
4. Glory Tonight (6:09)
[Words and Music - Williams]

An echo on the wind tells a distant warning
Time has come for us to make the journey home
We followed all our lives tales of beasts and valour
And heroes who have walked this road before

If there was another way
If the light can pierce the dark
It seems there's nowhere left to turn
We stand up as one now that our time has come.

Twilight surrounds us the night closes in
Darkness has fallen we stand for our King
An empire in shadows the candle burns low
We'll all find some glory tonight

The chaos in our minds tells a different story
If the light can pierce the dark
Now world will see... see what we are made of
And how we'll conquer all to save the crown

Twilight surrounds us the night closes in
Darkness has fallen we stand for our King
An empire in shadows the candle burns low
We'll all find some glory tonight

[Solo (Bickers) / Solo (Williams) / Solo (Bickers) / Solo (Totman)]

If there was another way
If the light can pierce the dark
It seems there's nowhere left to turn
We stand up as one now that our time has come.

We'll all find some glory....... tonight.
5. Power Quest (part 1) (7:39)
[Words and Music - Williams]

[Solo (Martongelli)]

A feeling deep within
A memory of how we used to be
I see it in your eyes
And I know you feel the same way too

The seeds of doubt were sown
When confidence has been betrayed
What am I doing here ?
But do you feel the same way too ?

The signs were there but we decided not to look
A premonition of the last page of the book
When we get down to it there's no-one else to blame
Questions may change but the answer's the same

How will I know what I'm searching for
Living my life uncertain
Who will reveal what's behind the door ?
Or must the quest continue

An opportunity
A chance to make amends for what went wrong
Another twist of fate
Conspires to leave me here alone once more

The signs were there but we decided not to look
A premonition of the last page of the book
When we get down to it there's no-one else blame
Questions may change but the answers' the same

How will I know what I'm searching for
Living my life uncertain
Who will reveal what's behind the door ?
Or must the quest continue

How will I know what I'm searching for
Living my life uncertain
Who will reveal what's behind the door ?
Or must the quest continue

[Solo (Williams) / Solo (Bickers) / Solo (Totman) / Solo (Martongelli)]

My spirit will never be broken
The quest will go on to the end
This time is forever
The promise we held deep inside

Thought rivers and mountains between us
Together as one we will be
I'll never stop searching
To find you my friend once again

How will I know what I'm searching for
Living my life uncertain
Who will reveal what's behind the door ?
Or must the quest continue

How will I know what I'm searching for
Living my life uncertain
Who will reveal what's behind the door ?
Or must the quest continue
6. Beyond The Stars (4:43)
[Music - Totman / Words - Williams, Totman]

Walking through shadows down the night of memory lane
Think of the past I'm reminded once again
A place where the people had gathered as one
Their spirit provided a haven for all

Darkness may cover the land far away
Visions uncover the past once again
My soul feels the echo of yesterdays dream
And our purpose discovered at last.

Reach for the stars that shine bright in the sky
Reach up to heaven you'll hear angels cry
On the road we must follow the dark lord will come
And for ever the quest must go on

The ancient village is destroyed, the people all are gone
Bodies are buried and marked with a stone
The voice of our father still rides on the wind
Brings hope for the ones that are still yet to come

Darkness may cover the land far away
Visions uncover the past once again
My soul feels the echo of yesterdays dream
And our purpose discovered at last.

Reach for the stars that shine bright in the sky
Reach up to heaven you'll hear angels cry
On the road we must follow the dark lord will come
and for ever the quest must go on.

[Solo (Williams) / Solo (Totman) / Solo (Bickers)]

Black Knights together demons they send
We fight the evil on to the end
On the march for ever after, standing by the King forever
Bound to live for now and evermore

Reach for the stars that shine bright in the sky
Reach up to heaven with glory we die

Reach for the stars that shine bright in the sky
Reach up to heaven you'll hear angels cry
On the road we must follow the dark lord will come
And for ever the quest must go on.
And for ever the quest must go on.
7. Immortal Plains (5:45)
[Words and Music - Williams]

What about everything that happened long ago
What about plans we made together
What about comrades stood beside us way back when
It seemed times would last forever

With sword in hand we will make a stand
Eternity would not see us divided
In the darkest night though there was no light
We see the way before us clear as day

If we live or we die, it will not be goodbye
If we stumble and fall, there's no end to it all
If we fight with our hearts, none can tear us apart
Through the wind and the rain we'll meet again
On immortal plains.

What about all the things that still are yet to come
What about all the things we dreamed of
Can we be certain now just what lies far beyond
Can we feel safe without the answers.

With sword in hand we would make a stand
Eternity would not see us divided
In the darkest night though there was no light
We see the way before us clear as day

[Ch.] If we live or we die, it will not be goodbye
If we stumble and fall, there's no end to it all
If we fight with our hearts, none can tear us apart
Though the wind and the rain we'll meet again
On immortal plains

[Solo (Totman)]

With sword in hand we would make a stand
Eternity would not see us divided
In the darkest night though there was no light
We see the way before us clear as day

If we live or we die, it will not be goodbye
If we stumble and fall, there's no end to it all
If we fight with our hearts, none can tear us apart
Through the wind and the rain we'll meet again
If we live or we die, it will not be goodbye
If we stumble and fall, there's no end to it all
If we fight with our hearts, none can tear us apart
Through the wind and rain we'll meet again
On immortal plains

[Solo (Martongelli)]
8. Follow Your Heart (6:24)
[Words and Music - Williams]

I dream of strange illusions and the legacy of old
But can I really trust the visions that I see ?
Take me to the temple, I desire to see the truth
And to discover what the future holds for me

The chance you've got may never come to you again
You need some courage now to make a choice my friend
The sands of time dissolve with every breath you take
each step a little closer to the edge

Follow your heart and your dreams will come true
The path that you take and the journey you choose
The future unfolds as you head on your way
Everything possible, every day

I stand and wait in silence for the one who will arrive
To help me understand exactly what to do
Guiding me with wisdom that I'll need to stay alive
Is what I'll need if I'm to see the journey through

The chance you've got may never come to you again
You need some courage now to make a choice my friend
The sands of time dissolve with every breath you take
each step a little closer to the edge

Follow your heart and your dreams will come true
The path that you take and the journey you choose
The future unfolds as you head on your way
Everything possible, every day

[Solo (Adam) / Solo (Steve W) / Solo (Adam) / Solo (Sam)]

[P.] The chance you've got may never come to you again
You need some courage now to make a choice my friend
The sands of time dissolve with every breath you take
each step a little closer to the edge

[C.] Follow your heart and your dreams will come true
The path that you take and the journey you choose
The future unfolds as you head on your way
Everything possible, every day

Follow your heart and your dreams will come true
The path that you take and the journey you choose
The future unfolds as you head on your way
Everything possible, every day
9. Freedom of Thought (7:04)
[Words and Music - Adam Bickers]

[Verse 1.]
I look around and what do I see ?
Imprisoned minds in a sick society
I watch as the cycle goes on
Does no one else see that this is wrong ?
Spoon fed ignorant lies whilst imagination dies
Ready to accept (whatever offered next) without question or insight.

[Verse 2.]
I see, but I can't believe
My eyes grow black at this obscenity
Young lives compressed in the mould
Factory pre-set, dead before they're old.
Regurgitating filth, so typical of their ilk
Xenophobic breed, incredulous creed, deprived of all free will.

So fight - Defend your integrity
Be strong - Don't accept mediocrity
Preserve - The individual within
Believe - You never have to give in.

Freedom of thought is the virtue you need
To secure the future with hope and belief
Explore your ambitions and open your mind
There's no limit to what you can find

[Verse 3.]
It's time to make a stand
The future sits rooted in our hands
Break out of this cycle you are in
Uncharted paths is were true life begins.
No need to be alone, to make it on your own
We'll all be there to face the glare of uncertainty (and the) unknown.

So fight - Freedom of thought is the virtue you need
To secure the future with hope and belief
Explore your ambitions and open your mind
There's no limit to what you can find

Freedom of thought is the virtue you need
To secure the future with hope and belief
Explore your ambitions and open your mind
There's no limit to what you can find

[Solo (Totman) / (Bickers) / (Bikers)]

So fight - Defend your integrity
Be strong - Don't accept mediocrity
Preserve - The individual within
Believe - You never have to give in. to face the glare of uncertainty (and the) unknown.

Freedom of thought is the virtue you need
To secure the future with hope and belief
Explore your ambitions and open your mind
There's no limit to what you can find

Freedom of thought is the virtue you need
To secure the future with hope and belief
Explore your ambitions and open your mind
There's no limit to what you can find
