Book of Shadows Lyrics

(14)
Submitted by level 락꾸룩
Disc 1  
1. Between Heaven and Hell (3:25)
Dying to live
Living to die
Ain't no hellos here
Nothing but goodbye
It's like singing a song that cannot be sung
It's like having to end child,
what's yet to love begun

[Chorus]

Hey, hey, hey now
Where I am at times I just can't tell
Hey, hey, hey, now
I'm lost somewhere Between Heaven and Hell

All that you know and all that you knew
In the end child,
tell me what's it all mean to you?
Don't forget just who and where you are --
You can spread your wings son
But don't you spread yourself too far

Hey, hey, hey now
Where I am at times I just can't tell
Hey, hey, hey, now
I'm lost somewhere Between Heaven and Hell
2. Sold My Soul (4:52)
Without you woman by my side
I'm contemplating suicide torn from all my pride
A man tells me, son that ain't the way
Gonna make a deal with you child
Gonna live another day
Just sign right here son
Everything will be alright

[CHORUS:]
*Oooo-oh
Ain't nothing I wouldn't do
*Oooo-oh
All & everything for you
*Oooo-oh
Your love is all I know and ever knew
*Oooo
Therefore I have sold my soul for you
*Oooo-oh
*Oooo-oh

I was told by this man it would be worth my while
He'd return me to my woman
Return me to my smile ----
It's all I ask for in this life
Whatever's wrong son he told me he'd make right

Just sign right here child
Everything going to be alright

[CHORUS]

All for you

[SOLO]

Just sign right here son
Everything going to be alright

[CHORUS]

[OUT SOLO]
3. Road Back Home (5:48)
I look around I see that time ain't changed
Same old faces, Same old names
All the things we thought we knew
You lied to me & I lied to you
(Now) All this time
You never sympathize
All this time
I can't find my way back inside
What you give is what you get
But you drew the line on me baby
Tears falling free but you can't see (child)
I'm just a touch away baby

[Chorus]
Tell me where am I now (oh-o)
Why, where & how
Show me the road back home (oh-yeah)
Tell me where am I now (oh-o)
Why, where & how
Show me the road back home, back home

The pain blew in like a hurricane
Stranger in this town bearing your name
Trapped in the silence with my memories
It's cutting me deep & its tellin' me

All this time
You never sympathize
All this time
I can't find my way back inside

Going nowhere & I'm headed there fast & I
don't mean maybe
The light is getting low & my touch is growing cold
Oh just hold me baby

Tell me where am I now (oh-o)
Why, where & how
Show me the road back home (oh-yeah)
Tell me where am I now (oh-o)
Why, where & how
Show me the road back home, back home

[Guitar Solo]

What you give is what you get
But you drew the line on me baby
Tears falling free but you can't see (child)
I'm just a touch away baby

Tell me where am I now (oh-o)
Why, where & how
Show me the road back home (oh-yeah)
Tell me where am I now (oh-o)
Why, where & how
Show me the road back home, back home
4. Way Beyond Empty (5:25)
If I could I surely would
Child ease your pain
But if I could no longer
Would you still know my name?

If I couldn't drain the tears
That pour from these eyes
Would you turn your back on me
Would you wave goodbye?

[Chorus]
Or leave me way beyond empty inside
Awaiting my last day to arive
Way beyond empty inside
Awaiting my end to arrive

If I could be the shoulder
Which your head would rest upon
Would you still be waiting (mama)
Or would you be gone?
If I couldn't keep the smile
Forever on your face
Would I still be around
Or would I be replaced?

(Yeah)
Way beyond empty inside
Awaiting my last day to arive (yeah)
Way beyond empty inside
Awaiting my end to arrive

Oh-o
Oh-o-o-o
Oh-o
Oh-o-o-o

[Guitar Solo]

(And) Would you promise me
Things they'd never change
Could you promise me
That things they'd stay the same?

If I couldn't clear the clouds
From over your head
Would you keep your word to me
Amongst all the things you said?

Or leave me way beyond empty inside
Awaiting my last day to arive (yeah)
Way beyond empty inside
(oh-o-o)
Awaiting my end to arrive
Oh yeah child!
5. Throwin' It All Away (5:47)
You couldn't feel the sunlight upon your face
Your little world
A little out of place
You couldn't hear the ocean
You couldn't hear the waves
I know you meant to come back
I know you meant to stay

All you touched
All you know
All you loved - yeh

Well I can see you smile
Can you see my tears?
I reach to hold you
But you ain't there
You left a hole so big lord, Beyond repair
I'll try to find forgiveness in talkin' what
Will never share

All you touched
All you know
All you loved
You just left 'em with nothing to say

[Chorus]
You're just throwin' it all away
No you didn't care to see the light of day
You're just throwin' it all away
Like the sand upon the beach
Your crashing waves came took you away
6. What You're Lookin' For (5:31)
We were friends
Yet never all that close
Two different people lord
I guess yeah, I suppose
Well I could see by the lines on your face
So much on your mind
Searchin' for someone, anyone, something to treat you kind

[Chorus]
I hope you found what you were lookin' for
'Cause I haven't seen your face around here no more
When did life become a chore
When was it that you couldn't take it anymore
With nothin' above you & nothin' below
Couldn't cure the need for somewhere else to go
I just hope ya found what you were lookin' for

Sweep all your fears
Beneath the rug there on the flour
Shed a new skin
No longer insecure
Your livin' harder yeh
Harder than you know
Tell me - how fast can ya burn?
And how far can ya go?
7. Dead as Yesterday (2:51)
It'll leave you with nothin' to say
Lost without a way
Ain't it funny child
Love sometimes leaves you
As dead as yesterday
Hoping to hold a handful of sunshine
Like a child told it cannot play
Never ever figured Lord love would leave me feeling
As dead as yesterday

Lord could you help me find some shelter?
Lord could you help me find some shelter?

It'll leave you feeling hollow & helpless
And there is where you'll stay
Ain't it funny child love sometimes leaves you
As dead as yesterday
8. Too Numb to Cry (2:23)
I see you across the room
Search for some happiness ain't anytime soon
Turmoil has turned you inside
Sift through your pages of miracles you wish to find

[Chorus]
When you're too numb to cry
& you're just left wondering why
When you're too numb to cry
& you're just left wondering why

To change in the blink of an eye
If you could you surely would wave yourself good-bye
I try & I try & I try
Get a hold on your suffering
Peace in which you don't wish to buy
9. The Things You Do (4:11)
Color my world all black & blue
The hell you dish out
Comes back three-fold to you
Inside your riddled rotten core
I hope you get what you deserve
Worse & even more

[Chorus]
How can you do the things you do?
You make Satan look like Christ
I swear its true
How could you do the things you do?

The Rolling Stones once sang a tune
Singing words of sympathy
Yet none were sung for you
If the lord of darkness seen you comin' his way
He'd get on his knees
And look to Jesus
and start to pray
10. 1,000,000 Miles Away (6:28)
Sailing across my ocean
Sailing across my sea
I fill it up with hope Lord
I drown in empty misery

Sailin' across my heaven
Sailing across my star
Until I find the voice I've been hearing in my head
Forever couldn't be too far ... yeah

Oh it couldn't be to far
Oh it couldn't be to far

The cold wind blows
Like a leaf on a tree
I can feel myself fallin lord
I need your guiding hand to catch me
When you hear yourself this song
I hope it brings yourself a smile
The times we had we thought would last forever
But forever only lasts a little while
Forever only lasts a little while ... yeah

Loneliness my friend
I'll think about you every day
As I sail into the light, 1,000,000 miles away
11. I Thank You Child (4:40)
All for you
Everlasting love forever skies of blue
All in your heart
Never ending just a means for start

[Chorus]
Comfort in your eyes
For the warmth inside your smile
Faith's done gone astray
It was you who made living all worth the while
I thank you my child
It was you who made living all worth the while
I thank you my child

With the touch of your hand
Amidst confusion I can see enough to understand
All my fears repressed
Oh lovin' you child it's the best

[Chorus]

You're all & everything to me
Til the end of times you know you'll always be
Ain't no second guess
Oh you put my worried soul to rest
 
Disc 2  
1. Evil Ways (4:13)
Sittin' sippin' sorrow
It's gone straight to my head
I say the pain shall come and it shall go
A friend once said

You ain't livin' for no God, no
You be livin' for the dollar sign
I say a frown upon your maker's face
You shall find

So much wrong
You have tried, oh yeah
I've waited far
Oh, far too long, yeah

Talking about your evil ways
And this pen that wrote this song
I'm talking about your evil ways
And this pen that wrote this song

Wanting to know nothing
Living through a child's eyes
A smile comes upon your face
As I break and cry

If nothing seems to matter
In the end what are you doin' it for?
To see the trail of twisted broken souls
Across the floor

So much wrong, yeah
You've done tried, oh yeah
I waited far
Lord, I waited far too long, yeah

Talking about your evil ways
And this pen that wrote this song
I'm talking about your evil ways
And this pen that wrote this song

Oh so much wrong, child
You done tried, oh yeah
I waited far
Lord, I waited far too long, yeah

Talking about your evil ways
And this pen that wrote this song
Talking about your evil ways
And this pen that wrote this song

I'm talking about your evil ways
And this pen that wrote this song, oh yeah
2. The Color Green (3:05)
I recall when you once said,
"There's a truth in both of us
And all that lies ahead."
I take it your tongue
It just got twisted
Or maybe it got tired
Or maybe your memory waved goodbye

When your so called friends forget your name
When your so called friends, they ain't the same
When your so called friends, they've lost their way
And they ain't what they was just the other day, hey
Should've listened to what my folks, they had to say
Just like a dog that's turned on you
Ain't it funny what the colour green will make some people do?

How I couldn't see through your thin disguise
Lord only knows and such a fool was I
Happy go lucky, that's what I was and what I hope to be
But I feel that I've lost that side of me

When your so called friends forget your name
When your so called friends, they ain't the same
When your so called friends, they've lost their way
And they ain't what they was just the other day, hey
Should've listened to what my folks, they had to say
Just like a dog that's turned on you
Ain't it funny what the colour green will make some people do?
3. Peddlers of Death (5:51)
Come, take my hand
Let us walk for a while
Your burden of pain
Replaced with a smile
Never so far, only so close
As you melt in your false cradle below

For the peddlers of death
Always come calling one more time
Bearing promises of feeling fine

For the peddlers of death
Always come calling one more time
Bearing promises of feeling fine

So called friends are running loose
Draining you whole
'Til you're of no use
Letting go of things you need most

Son, early wish, early grave, early ghost

For the peddlers of death
Always come calling one more time
Bearing promises of feeling fine

For the peddlers of death
Always come calling one more time
Bearing promises of feeling fine

For the peddlers of death
Always come calling one more time
Bearing promises of feeling fine

For the peddlers of death
Always come calling one more time
Bearing promises of feeling fine
