Episode Lyrics

(13)
Submitted by level 퀴트린       Last modified by level Eagles
1. Father Time (5:02)
Walking down the path that leads me to my memories
Pacing all the way without a care in my stride
Where are the friends of my yesterday
have they moved on with they lives
Can we still laugh and joke about things like before

There's no need to hide the past that I have left behind
It's a good resource somewhere for me to find
Why am I waiting for someone to reach out
it should be all up to them
keeping in touch ain't that easy but I'll have to try

Where have all the years gone
that's what I am asking now
What have I learnt so far
tell me Father Time - tell me now

Now I understand I'll take from time what I need
And I store it inside it's there for me to find
I can't deny that the years will pass by
but it won't bother me
Coz now I will set out to realize my dream

Where have all the years gone
that's what I am asking now
What have I learnt so far
tell me Father Time - tell me now
2. Will The Sun Rise? (5:06)
Throwing my dreams out of my mind
casting them into the sky
canceling tasks I've delayed for so long
now it's do or die

I can't be seen I can't be heard
but I am here and I am wondering

Will the sun rise tomorrow
will it light up my sky
can I wake up with no sorrow awaiting
Will the sun rise tomorrow
will I still see the dawn
and not worry 'bout the future anymore

At the end of each day I promise myself
I'd better start to live
coz sooner or later I'll find out
there's so much I can give
I can't be seen I can't be heard
but I am here and I am wondering

Will the sun rise tomorrow
will it light up my sky
can I wake up with no sorrow awaiting
will the sun rise tomorrow
will I still see the dawn
and not worry 'bout the future anymore
3. Eternity (6:56)
When clouds are covering the sky
I can't help thinking what's behind
In a fading evening
I can feel strange thoughts in my mind
What if we aren't alone here
there's a clone of everyone somewhere
that duplicates all that we do
not like me not like you but our other ego
there ain't no wars or crises
only joy and compromises
time has stood still

why don't you take me there
wanna feel some infinity
why don't we just dare
coz after all remains ... Eternity

A landscape with no trees
and a mist arising from the distance
an illusion just for me
or a proper reward and a chance
there ain't no wars or crises
only joy and compromises
time has stood still

why don't you take me there
wanna feel some infinity
why don't we just dare
coz after all remains ... Eternity
4. Episode (2:01)
instrumental
5. Speed Of Light (3:03)
Today is just an other day
of my life too short to live
I should have somekind of meaning
a destiny to believe in
before I go to sleep

I find some pictures of a time
when everything was still so fine
although the years have passed by
I will give it all I have inside...everything

I'm away lost in my thoughts
everyday my life goes by
at the speed of light
6. Uncertainty (5:59)
Learning by trying it's hard to deny it
while paying for what I used to know
Dreams are deceiving untill I'm achieving
the goals I haven't set too low

Waiting for a new day
to wipe away
the Uncertainty that flows around me
once again to stay

So many choices but so few answers
my time slips away while thinking too much
Whom to believe in they're all just repeating
the same old lies so nice to clutch

Waiting for a new day
to wipe away
the Uncertainty that flows around me
once again to stay
7. Season Of Change (6:57)
Season of change life feels so strange
Look into my eyes do you see the truth
I'm lost and alone feelings unknown
Come to me stronger than before

On winds of time my soul will fly
The angels are knocking at my door
Oh now I need to be free
From all this hatred I feel inside

Let it be my dreams
Let it be my thoughs
All those things in my heart
One too many days
One too many years
I wasted for nothing

I never realized
The truth is inside
Of every man for all to see
Listen to me now
I'm so close to you
Never felt like this before

The carousel is spinning fast
better enjoy while it lasts
Every moment is like gold
you'll remember when you're old
And the meaning of this life
is to live and is to die
Make the best out of your dreams
they're the world where you are free
All the sorrow and the pain
will be washed away by rain
An eternal joy will come
it can be found by everyone
Though the end is drawing near
I'm not feeling any fear
I have found the truth inside
after all the tears I've cried

Season of Change...
8. Stratosphere (4:52)
instrumental
9. Babylon (7:09)
A new day is rising in ancient Babylon
Revealing mysteries to see
and the endless caravan
never ending it's journey
with the wings of the wind I will fly
I can hear you calling me
I am blind but I see

Babylon
your memory haunts me forever
won't leave me be
Babylon
your glory's stronger than ever
for all to see

Centuries have passed by
but your memory still lives on
In the minds of those who see
Under the summer moon
there comes a sight
that stays with me forever
I can hear you calling me
I am blind but I see

Babylon your memory haunts me forver
won't leave me be
Babylon
your glory's stronger that ever
for all to see

And underneath the starlit sky
I feel so strong I'll never die
I'm on this road to Eternity
My soul will live forever - I'm free
10. Tomorrow (4:52)
I'm staring out the window
wondering will I soon know
the answers to the questions within
where should I begin
I'm delusioned by a clear crystal night
While trying to find some insight
the solution is close at hand yet still so far away

I'll turn the tables 'round and find another way
I'll leave all this behind and move on today

I will take things as they come
look out for number one
and I'll be back tomorrow
Feeling strong and brave inside
my head up high with pride
yes I'll be back tomorrow

I'm facing my nightmares again
determined that I won't bend
now the answers are coming to me
I'm learning how to believe
I know now that this is the way
I've found my red-letter day
I've been there out on a limb
but now I've finally come in

I've turned the tables 'round and found another way
I've left it all behind for a better day

I will take things as they come
look out for number one
and I'll be back tomorrow
Feeling strong and brave inside
my head up high with pride
yes I'll be back tomorrow
11. Night Time Eclipse (7:58)
If I could stay awake for awhile
it would be another morning
don't wanna fall asleep now when
everything seems so far and beyond

Walking down a familiar road
but the darkness is misleading me
I know I should feel fear inside
but still the shadows is where I wanna be

Just an ordinary day stealing all the hope away
wanting me to be the one who has dreams made of clay

My fading confused mind
creating phrases unknown

I know I should't stay awake
if I fall asleep they just might find me
Now all is so clear
I can finally proceed

My fading confused mind
creating phrases unknown

Waiting for the dawn
soon to arrive
so few options that I have
and I can use
Life's circumstances
can be so cruel
If I take a chance I just might
make the wrong move
12. Forever (3:06)
I stand alone in the darkness
the winter of my life came so fast
memories go back to my childhood
to days I still recall

Oh how happy I was then
there was no sorrow there was no pain
walking through the green fields
sunshine in my eyes

I'm still there everywhere
I'm the dust in the wind
I'm the star in the northern sky
I never stayed anywhere
I'm the wind in the trees
would you wait for me forever ?
13. When The Night Meets The Day (bonus track) (5:30)
Look around there's no time to waste
life goes on nothing's gonna change
Feel the winds of life blowing cold
it won't take so long you are growing old
there is no answer to be found
it is so easy to fall without a sound

Days of loving and gold
kept me from feeling so old
times I'll always recall
when the night meets the day
Gates of heaven I saw
while flying through the misty dawn
those days I'll always recall
when the night meets the day

I don't wanna let you out of my sight
but here I'm lost and alone in the night
