Reason Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level P.Anselmo
1. Turn Away (4:25)
You touched yourself with fire
Touching someone else
Your well is dry, you cry out
In search of more success
You left your thoughts in darkness
And one day they'll return
Some other kind of lesson would be good to learn

Don't get it down on me
Don't ever Turn Away!

Break trough your barriers
Sharpened, diamond-cut
Again you're trapped in lies
Or simply misunderstood?

Just tell me what you need now
To be that someone else
Is that another desire?
It will be your last?

Don't get it down on me
Don't ever Turn Away!

Leave me alone
Seeds now are raised and grown
Guide me today
Then turn away

Leave me alone
Seeds now are raised and grown
Play me today
Use me, then turn away

Don't get it down on me
Don't ever Turn Away!

Leave me alone
Seeds now are raised and grown
Guide me today
Then turn away
2. Reason (4:42)
Strange how summer blossoms
Blew away so late this year
Falling from above, soft as snow
All around you

The days, I'd like to bring back
Side by side with you
And peer trough that old black window
And see red-blue skies so near, but

Say the word
And I'll be ready to make a sacrifice
Stay - Don't turn around
There's only one reason

All my life I wished I was here
Looking for a chance to cry out
All the pain that turned me into stone
And thoughts that haunt me day by day

The word is 'now'
I'm ready to make my sacrifice
Pray - Imagine all the things
That I never talked about
Stay - Don't turn around
You're the only one

Won't you save me, take me away
There's no more reason to hide
Try to make a stand
It's not only tears in my eyes
Somewhere I'm all alone... without you

[Woman speaking]
Flowers of light descend
As the twilight strangles the sky
May I, in this vast world
Ever find another soul
To contemplate my silence, forever...

Won't you save me, take me away
I've felt so lost as I've tried
Hold me, help me stand
Don't mind the tears in my eyes
Someday we'll pass away
Is there a time to go by?
Take a breath and smile
Fortune is to be alive

For apparently no reason
3. More (Sisters of Mercy Cover) (4:06)
Some people get by
with a little understanding
some people get by
with a whole lot more
I don't know
why you gotta be so undemanding
one thing I know
I want more
I want more

(and I need all the love that I can't get to)
(and I need all the love I can get)
(and I need all the love that I can't get to)

D'you get scared to feel so much?
To let somebody touch you?
So hot, so cold, so far so out of control
Hard to come by, and harder to hold

Some people get by
with a little understanding
some people get by
with a whole lot more
I don't know
why you gotta be so undemanding
I want more
(and I need all the love I can get)
(and I need all the love that I can't get to)
(and I need all the love I can get)
(and I need all the love that I can't get to)

There are parts of me that don't get nervous
not the parts that shake
you won't get what you deserve
you are what you take
learning to cry for fun and profit
I'm not done yet
counterfeit dollars or the English zloty
anything I can get

Some people get by
with a little understanding
some people get by
with a whole lot more
I don't know
why you gotta be so undemanding
one thing I know
I want more

(and I need all the love I can get)
(and I need all the love that I can't get to)
(and I need all the love I can get)
(and I need all the love that I can't get to)

All the love that you can get
all the love
that I can't get to
4. Innocence (4:39)
I woke today
Inside the train of dreams
the rain poured down in black and white
I stood and stared
the rest of what remains
My own world crumbling around (a wild world crumbling around)

I held my tears
One day comes after another

the falling rain
caressed my skin again
just let it flow to wash away
the time gone by
feeling long denied
my heart is no more bounded in vain (in pain)

and now its clear
one day leads on to another
I dried my tears (cried my tears)
there's so much else to discover
somewhere...

I hear the sound
Of thousand voices
I lost my innocence
I'm on my way
Across the desert
To rescue what I sent
Out of my heart and way

Now it's clear
One day leads on to another
To find our fears
Find the way back to each other

oh!

I hear the sound
Of thousand voices
I lost my innocence
I'm on my way
Across the desert
To rescue what I sent
Out of my heart...

I hear the sound
f thousand voices
I lost my innocence
and I'm on my way
across the desert
to rescue what i sent
out of my heart and way
5. Scarred Forever (5:23)
There's a chance for you and me
Further away from this believe
When the prayers reach the sky
Cause I know man that you will cry no more

Run, running away, falling apart
Thunder of fate colliding

Everyday I see your face
Through my empty I met this grace
When it's cracking up inside
Cause I know man that you will cry no more

Run, running away, falling apart
Fear of the heart now turning two
Shadows of day out in the dark
Fury scarred forever

And always empty nights are left behind
Always the moment is right you can't deny your faith
Deny your faith

[Guitar solo]

The hatefull lair disturbs the sky
It's time to say goodbye
Along the way a wishing well
Turn off the light let us have
Our last goodbye and then

Run, running away, falling apart
Fear of the heart of turning two
Shadows of day out in the dark
Fury scarred forever

Always empty nights are left behind
Always the moment is right you can't deny your faith
Deny your faith
Deny your faith
6. In the Night (5:56)
In the night, realm of dreams
Wildness creed, descending
All so quiet, all so still
Prowling in silence in the night

In the heights, on the peaks
Rainy clouds surrounding
There are cities made of light
Ripping through the black of night

All becomes so real
Making dreams come true
To release your mind and free your soul

Fly away from this land
Made of old scraps of sorrow
No way back, free to ride
Hesitation, sacrifice

Mesmerize, hold on tight
Fur the heavens bend down
There's a tunnel, long and winding
Leading on towards the light

All become so real
Making dreams come true
To release your mind and free your soul

Free yourself from misery, let go
Hear my voice and I will guide your roaming

[Guitar solo]

Oh, free yourself from misery, let go
Hear my voice and I will light your road
Leave behind the world you know, and float
Hear my voice and I will guide your roaming
7. Rough Stone (5:00)
Flowing down inside the stream
Blowing all around
Like another day of spring
Spreading out through the ground

Changing seasons come and go
Before and after life
And the sun will set again
Bringing out the darkest night

Only made to disappear?
Life's a rough stone
And the future, unclear

Wait for the day of your life
That you will meet the unknown
There's nowhere else to go
Wait for the truth, not a lie
It will meet you alone
End of all illusion

Only made to disappear?
Life's a rough stone
And the future, right here
So much pain, suffering and strife
Mystery of death
Brings a new man to life
8. Iron Soul (5:28)
Look around, what do you see?
Caught up in humility?
Too many souls are on their own
Fallen angels moving on

There's more to get, more to find
Feelings of another kind
The choice is set, take it soon
For even you won't be immune now

I'd count it a miracle
If I ever see your smile
Throw away your illusions, dear
Don't keep trusting your own lies

Who's in command of your heart?
Of your hope?
Past thoughts are vague
As they soar high and low

Yet someday, still alive
You will find a will to strive
For someone else will come along
To lift you up, to right the wrong

And you will see within your eyes
Figures that comes back to life
You'll touch the wounds that never heal
Love is raw, it's not for real

I'd count it a miracle
If I ever see your smile
Throw away your illusions, dear
Let me hold you for a while

Who's in command of your heart, of your hope?
Past thoughts are vague, running out of control

There was a time when the fields were green
The world was one, life was filled with something
There was a blue sea, on the horizon
There was a dream of a lasting fire
We bottomed out, life's become so cruel
Along the way, a regardless torment
Is there a cause that we would die for?
Is there a place where the spirit lives on?

Who's in command of your heart, of your hope?
Past thoughts are vague, running out of control
There's more to know and there's much more beyond
The faith that you've lost you will find on your own
9. Trail of Tears (3:52)
Not for a day
Not for a while
You run alone you never satisfied
Oh you've been dreaming for a hundred years

So you begin
To understand
That your lifetime is running through your hands
Oh! Will forgive you for this Trail of tears

There you go out

Someone to know
Easy to find
Full feel your hearts will blew of many kinds
Only will change it for its train of shore

There you go
Hearing voices and noises to go
There you stand
Back in time every hour once begin
There you walk and then...

After a shock
Time to recompose
No bleeding heart
"So the screamings that you feel"

Oh! Will forgive you for this Trail of tears

There you go
Hearing voices and noises to go
There you stand
Back in time every hour once begin
There you walk, my friend!
10. Born to Be (6:00)
I looked inside me
To find myself
To purify me
To cease the pain

[chorus:]
Across that river
A life goes by
Look inside the mirror
And you will find out

In solitude I was born
It terrified me
A veil of mist right before my eyes

I walked in shadows
I drowned in rain
I met the desert and I'm born again

[chorus]

In solitude I was born
It crucified me
Wearing a crown of thorns

I am free now, born to be a man
Emptiness made me understand
What lay hidden deep within

I am free now, born to be the man
Loveliness brushed away the sand
From what's hidden deep within
Shapeless dream without a name
Wrapped in frozen layers of life
Sings the song of what we all are
