Intermission Lyrics

(15)
Submitted by level 이준기
1. Will My Soul Ever Rest In Peace?
I've been searching for an oasis
In the desert for so long
In my weakness trying
To pretend I'm strong

I've been holding on
To things that I have left behind
I've been scared and lonely
I'm crippled inside

Bathed my soul in the starlight
Healed my wounds in the sun
Screamed my pain to the forest
Asking the question why?

Will there come a time for me when I find peace of mind
Will I always have this feeling like I'm last in the line
I will climb up the mountain and light up the candle and ask:
"Will my soul ever rest in peace?"

I've been washed in pain
Haunted by the ghosts of years ago
They won't leave me be
They keep coming back for more

Will there come a time for me when I find peace of mind
Will I always have this feeling like I'm last in the line
I will climb up the mountain and light up the candle and ask:
"Will my soul ever rest in peace?"

My crippled soul is yearning to be free

Will there come a time for me when I find peace of mind
Will I always have this feeling like I'm last in the line
I will climb up the mountain and light up the candle and ask:
"Will my soul ever rest in peace?"
2. Falling Into Fantasy
I'm sitting by the calm lake
And watch the setting sun
My feet are in the water
The journey's just begun
In the mist there is a boat and it's heading towards me
On the deck the lady's holding her hand and I agree

I'm falling into fantasy
The dream goes on

We are traveling in the nightfall
Until we stop somewhere
Descending into water
On dark and hazy stairs
Now she's leading me to the golden palace that lays ahead
She tells me I'm the one in her dreams and on her bed

I'm falling into fantasy
The dream goes on
I'm falling into fantasy
Drifting alone
3. The Curtains Are Falling
I'm back in the air, but I've nowhere to go
I nervously glance at the mountains below
Two hours of sleep, seven more 'til the show
I pray to the goddess of coffee to keep me alive

The crew's getting wasted, we're back in the sky
I join in the fray, 'coz the rules don't apply
"Who cares anyway - when we're all gonna fry!"
But somehow we manage to land and we all have survived...

And the curtains are falling and the legions are calling tonight
And the curtains are falling and the legions are calling tonight

Have to fly away, though I'd rather stay
That's the price you pay, that's the game we play

When roaring to life the engines are loud
The mem'ries of you and the sound of the crowd
They're fading away as we break through the clouds
But I don't complain when we're back on the ground and alive...

And the curtains are falling and the legions are calling tonight
And the curtains are falling and the legions are calling tonight
4. Requiem
[Instrumental]
5. Bloodstone (Judas Priest cover)
[Judas Priest cover]

I've been trying
There's no denying
It's sending me
Out of my mind

I've seen reason
Change to treason
It's losing it's sense
Of all kind

How much longer will it take
For the world to see
We should learn to live
And simply let it be
Bloodstone, bloodstone

In the night time
Wake in fright
I'm so scared of the game
That's being played

Start to wonder
What's going under
And how many deals
Have been made

How much longer will it take
For the world to see
We should learn to live
And simply let it be
Bloodstone, bloodstone

Bloodstone
I can't take it
You got me living
On a bloodstone
I don't want that bloodstone
6. Kill The King (Rainbow cover)
[Rainbow cover]

Danger, danger the Queen's about to kill
There's a stranger, stranger and life about to spill
Oh no move me out of harm
I need a spell and a charm
Fly like the wind
I'm no pawn, so be gone, speed on and on
Kill the king
Tear him down

Kill the king, yeah
Strike him down

Power, power it happens every day
Power, power all along the way
Oh no, move me out of harm
I need a spell and a charm
And fly like the wind
I'm no pawn, so be gone, speed on and on
Kill the king

Treason, treason, the spectre looms again
Treason, reason, the realm is safe and then
Oh no, move away from harm
I need a spell and a charm
Fly like the rainbow
I'm no pawn, so be gone, speed on and on

Kill the king
Tear him down
Kill the king, yeah
Got to take his crown

Kill the king
He'll rule no more
Strike him dead
The people roar

Kill the king, yeah
Take his head
Down, down, down, down
Oh, kill
Oh, kill
Oh, oh
7. I Surrender (Live)
[Live. Rainbow cover]

I surrender to your heart babe
Do anything that you want me to do
Please be tender I'm in your hands girl
This is a feeling I never knew
You know I tried to make it on my own
That's not the way it was meant to be
Spend my time waiting by the phone
Oh darling come back to me

I surrender, I surrender
I'm giving up the role of pretender
Oh be tender, girl be tender
Can't you feel the love that I send you
I surrender

I remember, seems like a lifetime
Can't believe it's a matter of days
Since you left I'm near to heartbreak
I want you so bad don't turn away
What does it take to stay by my side
You know I'll do what you want me to
Don't take away this feeling inside
I'm still in love with you

I surrender, I surrender
I'm giving up the role of pretender
Oh be tender, girl be tender
Can't you feel the love that I send you
I surrender

I surrender, I surrender
Darling now won't you be tender
Surrender, oh surrender
Feel the love that I send you
I surrender
8. Keep The Flame
The shadow falls on me today
Why can't it fade into the distance?

And darkness calls, no other way
I rage at the riddle of existence

The day's almost gone but you'll carry on
Can you keep the flame for me?
The day's almost gone but you'll carry on
Can you keep the flame for me?

A broken plan, a fleeting past
How do we always keep on trying?

A tired man, is free at last
What would the purpose be of lying?

My life's almost gone but you'll carry on
Can you keep the flame for me?
My life's almost gone but please carry on
Could you keep the flame for me?
Will you keep the flame for me?
9. Why Are We Here?
When the stars are gone forever and planets are turned into dust
It's a good escape to lie in the haze
In the past I found the answer in music and drinking and lust
Waiting for the end and counting the days

But I want to find an answer, so what if my terror dies
And I want to find an answer, I look in your eyes

Why are we here?
Maybe you hold the answer
Why are we here?
Maybe you hold the answer

When the sky is dark and winter has hidden the city in snow
I remember summer's not far away
And it seems the days are shorter and hours are passing so slow
It's a nice escape to roll in the hay

But I want to find an answer, so what if my terror dies
And I want to find an answer, I look in your eyes

Why are we here?
Maybe you hold the answer
Why are we here?
Maybe you hold the answer
10. What Can I Say
Sometimes it's not that easy finding all the words
For how I feel when you are near
The more we are together makes me realize
All I ever wanted is you

What can I say?
You make all my dreams come true
And every day I want you right here by my side
To take my hand and hold me tight
I never want to be alone again

Oh my love

The days are shorter now
I'm reaching for some light
And I find it in your eyes
Brighter than the sun it filled me up with love
Don't ever close them for me

What can I say?
You make all my dreams come true
And every day I want you right here by my side
To take my hand and hold me tight
I never want to be alone again

Oh my love

Yes I know baby
It takes a world to keep what we have
And not let go
I was lonely
Before I met you
But you wiped away all the sorrow

What can I say?
You make all my dreams come true
And every day I want you right here by my side
To take my hand and hold me tight
I never want to be alone again

What can I say?
You make all my dreams come true
And every day I want you right here by my side
To take my hand and hold me tight
I never want to be alone again

Oh my love
11. Dream With Me
Now it is time for you to close your eyes
They've seen much pain it's slowly filling your mind
Pretty as they are but now so pale
You better leave all your worries far behind

Not long ago when you had the Fire
Burning inside of you brighter than any flame
You were the one that I believed in
Keeping our hopes up high where are you now?
Where do you aim?

Let me take you there
To the place you know
Why don't you Dream With Me
The answers will be found

Now it is time to open your eyes again
See how all the sorrows have disappeared faded away
I am right here waiting for your call
If you still need me to guide your pace
Through the day

Let me take you there
To the place you know
Why don't you Dream With Me
The answers will be found
12. When The Night Meets The Day
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
13. It's A Mystery
In the middle of the jungle
There are ruins of temples built along ago
Stone by stone
They were made by the Mayas
A tribe that is not so well-known
Each pictures on the wall
Recorded history
They were gazing at the sky
Seeing stars telling them the days
On the year
Monuments marked time
But altars meant death and fear
Worshipping gods now gone long time ago
The population grew, new cities were found

What happened then?
Was it a strange decease that wiped away almost everyone?
Or it might have been starvation caused by drought and
A scorching sun

It's a mystery
The way they disappeared
It's now history
We will never know
14. Cold Winter Nights
Summer's gone a while ago
The daylight dims away
I'm watching here how the snow begins to fall
Yesterday's like a dream
A memory in my head
Like the life's gone behind the winter wall

I'm lighting up the candles and lock the door
Sitting by the fire
It's time to dream some more

I have to find a way how to survive
I am surrounded by the starlight
I have to find the path
How to escape from the Cold Winter Nights

And in the morning there's no trace of the sun
Just gray fog hanging above my head
All the birds are quiet hiding in the woods
Can't see no movement are they all dead?
15. Hunting High And Low (Live)
I feel the wind in my hair
And it's whispering, telling me things
Of the storm that is gathering near
Full of power I'm spreading my wings

Now I'm leaving my worries behind
Feel the freedom of body and mind
I am starting my journey, I'm drifting away with the wind
I go

I am Hunting High and Low
Diving from the sky above
Looking for, more and more, once again
I'm Hunting High and Low
Sometimes I may win sometimes I'll lose
It's just a game that I play

After the storm there's a calm
Through the clouds shines a ray of the sun
I am carried from all of my harm
There is no one that I can't outrun

Now I'm leaving my worries behind
Feel the freedom of body and mind
I am starting my journey, I'm drifting away with the wind
I go

I am Hunting High and Low
Diving from the sky above
Looking for, more and more, once again
I'm Hunting High and Low
Sometimes I may win sometimes I'll lose
It's just a game that I play

That would be all...
Be sure to hear from me again
