The West Pole Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Zyklus
1. When Trust Becomes Sound (3:53)
2. Treasure (4:08)
We found our stepping stone
Over darkest hours
We left no trace at home
But saw our footprints ahead
It was a dream stone

Stardust would shine our way
There was a beautiful vision that night
All shades were bright
With hope to catch the sight

Of northern lights
And touch a cooling star

We watched the moonstones
Swim in brightest colours
Reached for horizons
To touch the line that sparates earth from sky

Stardust would shine our way
With hope to catch the sight of northern lights
With hope to catch the sight

Of northern lights
And touch a cooling star
3. All You Are (4:34)
I sit scared
Your eyes blend into me and then I take in the room
Dark and cold, you are atmosphere
I wonder who you are, where are you from?

And I watch
All that you are
I want to hide
How did I end up here alone?

I sit scared
I dart my eyes about pretending I don't care
Time and place I embrace the sanity
I'm wondering why am I still here?
I lose the race
Your eyes meet mine, a fleeting glimpse

And I watch
All that you are
I want to hide
How did I end up here alone?

I've heard every word you have ever said, every story told

And I watch all that you are
I want to hide
How did I end up here alone?

I've heard every word you have said, every story told
I lose the race
Your eyes meet mine, a fleeting glimpse
4. The West Pole (6:35)
As the late evening sun
Slides her way through copper clouds
Golden leaves from autumn
Play over a dusty breeze
I slide my way through the empty park
Weary eyes

Your memory fades
Like dust wake the shades
The still night comes breaking in
Dry raindrops on summer wind

As the late evening sun
Shines her way through aging sky
Closing in on autumn

As I watch the miracle
Of seasons changing
I saw the leaves die

Your memory fades
Like dust wake the shades
The still night comes breaking in
Dry raindrops on summer wind

But I can still see you and I can still hear you
You're spinning around in my head

I can still hear you and I can still see you

Tide is down
I thought I heard the perfect note
I thought I heard you call my name

Your memory fades
Like dust wake the shades
The still night comes breaking in
Dry raindrops on summer wind
5. No Bird Call (5:38)
Once there were beautiful trees
Now there are concrete seas
An eerie calm has befallen the land

Cacophony of wonderful sounds
Is replaced by a symphony of silence

Fading letters of comforting words
She never had time to say goodbye

When there were beautiful trees
She's been alone
She's been alone for some time, now
It's been a while
Quite a while
A miracle has befallen her land

Cacophony of wonderful sounds
Is replaced by silence

[x2]
She had it all
What's left is there to fall
6. Capital of Nowhere (6:35)
Before the morning wakes
Night's gone up in flames
Of the neon lights
A siren calls my way
Don't easily fade away
In between the height

Light travels through black winter skies
Unravels pieces of the mind
And slowly the heart opens

Before the morning wakes
Night's gone up in flames
In the northern lights
It's more than you can take
To carry all the way
I know you've tried

Light travels through black winter skies
Unravels pieces of the mind
And slowly the heart opens

I need, need
I need your light

Light travels through black winter skies
Unravels pieces of the mind
And slowly the heart opens

I need, need
I need your light
7. You Promised Me a Symphony (2:54)
It is 1 P.M.
School bell's ringing
My heart beats fast
I better get on running
She shouldn't be alone
I should have been at home

Your guns, your lies, your cigarettes, your war
She kept us safe

Our hearts were filled with fear
Your prints left messy stains
But who was there to clear?

She shouldn't be alone
I should have been at home

My hope, my faith, your ignorance, your loss
8. Pale Traces (7:46)
When did you loose your smile?
Were you walking all alone at night searching endlessly for a way to join the pieces of what you used to be?
Let me hold you for a moment

When did you loose your smile
Was it all too much to take at once that suddenly you felt you had nothing left?

The coldest winter can't freeze your heart
one day you'll see that even the longest winter passes by
that through the years I'd still give it all
to hold you for a moment

When did your dream fade out?
Did it seem it wasn't worth it at all?
Then I'll try another million ways to make you understand

The coldest winter can't freeze your heart
one day you'll see that I'd give it all to hold you,
that even when all hope is gone
I'd still give it all to hold you for a moment

One day you'll see those heavy clouds will soon make way for brighter days

One day you'll see I've been here for you all along
and I will never let go of your hand

One day you'll see...
9. No One Spoke (4:32)
How did we get here?
Where is the silence?
We need to breath in
How can you sleep when war is all over?

We are walking on fire
We were sinking desire
I am leaving my past
You are changing at last

Why did we go there?
What were we thinking?
We need to breathe out
I need to break through
'cause war is all over

Shiny hours seem far
Seem so far away

We are walking on fire
We were sinking desire
I am leaving my past
You are changing at last

We talked and talked but no one spoke
We laughed and laughed but no one smiled
10. Constant Run (7:44)
He has a taste of anger
And it's oh so sweet
He likes to make it linger
And he pulls in every single string

We get a warm welcome wrapped in frost
He'll give her every little thing
Sings the sweetest songs to me
She is his favourite little thing

You will be wandering through some beautiful moments
I hear the bluebells ringing
With touch of cooling winds
His sore throat's screaming out of his angry mind
These melodies of softest cream heal her skin

He says we will be healing
And it's oh so neat
I shall repaint the picture
And dye it into abstract art

I need a cloud to jump on, somewhere to dream
to pick my own sparkling sun
Tunes of velvet, breaking in
Into my heart on a constant run

He can provide a safe place when thoughts get heavy
He will be carrying them, oh all of them for you
He will be poisoning her still growing mind
These melodies of softest cream will heal her skin

I'll try to catch the sun beams
They'll be for you my girl
Let shades away, be shining
You are my brightest little pearl
You will be his princess, in his land
He'll give you every little thing
Scented cherries of finest brand
He'll do it all to make her cling
