A Legacy of Love Lyrics

Submitted by level falkalap (2015-01-16)
1. How Can I Live on Top of the Mountain ? (4:45)
2. Nightswan (3:18)
Linger on, oh waning moon
This midnight hour has come much too soon
By the crystal lake we stand with our names in the sand
Believe me, my Love: I will wait for you
And I will return if you still want me, too

With the song of the nightswan
And I'll be in heaven!

The lark heralds the break of day
No longer by my side can you stay
In shrouded mists you disappear like a ghost bayadere
Where are you my Love? I'm calling your name
This spell can be broke: Love's ignited the flame

Like the song of the nightswan
And I'll be in heaven!

Oh, believe me, my Love, I will stand
laying siege to this fortress of time
With the glory of you in my heart
charge before the sun touches the rime

The Beltane fires upon the hill
Your hand in mine by the old water-mill
Fairles sing our wedding soung, now the moon lingers on
Stay with me, my Love, my Angel, my Life
We walked this dark maze so now we will fly

On the wings of the nightswan
And we'll be in heaven
3. Dancing in the Midnight Sun (10:10)
Farewell, pretty one: It's all over now you've gone
After all that we went through,
you left me when I needed you by my side
The times we shared, the good and bad,
were the best I've ever had, the best years of my life...

For we were dancing in the midnight sun
our love became too wild
I loved you like a child
The fire went out, went out before dawn
and I broke down and cried
and I drowned and died

Farewell, pretty one: I've put all my faith in you
and I can't understand: Did you lie on that night
you said you'd never let me go?
Oh, I believed each word you've said
I believed until the end
It's so hard to realize you never wanted me
that close by your side

And the snow falls back in time
down the hillside on our siedge we'd ride
We were laughin in the january sun
And for a moment time stood still as we rode
on and on and on...

Still the snow falls on Yile-tide
falls forever on that dreary mountainside
And the ghost of our love stands right
above: A monument of your smile
And our laughter that died so long ago
lingers on and on and on...

Never will I forget our last winter
Never will I forget the last winter of our love

Goodbye, pretty one: You broke my heart
twice, now I'm done!
You left me like a dream at the break of dawn
and I almost died
And even of you're lying now in someone else's arms
I'm still with you in a dream,
in dreams of days gone by
the best days of my life
Goodnight, my love, goodnight.
4. Goodbye to Jane (7:40)
5. Our Last Show (6:04)
And the rear lights of your car
behind the trees they fade away
walking inside somnambular
there goes a lovelorn castaway

Does it always have to be like this?
I'll never know
Was it something that I said?
You said: "I gotta go...."
While leaving me back here with my memories and my tears
You won't reappear!

Staring at the telephone
Wondering if I'd try?
I never knew that nights could be that long
And still I hear your last good-bye

Strange people on the screen, they try to make me laugh
But everywhere I see your face
and the photograph on the wall says that you're gone
And I'm waiting for the sun, keep dreaming on.....

No fire in the lighthouse
to guide me tonight
Don't know if our planet's razed
torn apart by love's meteorite
I know I will lose you
How can I face another daylight?

And I know
this could ring down the curtain to our last show
No second chance for Juliet and her Romeo
No applause, no ovations, no bravissimo
Please don't go!
6. Planet Kyrah (3:39)
Oh, you changed everything
Nothing‘s the same anymore
I see colours I‘ve never seen before
I hear songs that make my heart sing with joy

You set my heart on fire like it never burned before
And I‘m sure that up there in the sky
shine some new-born stars
that were not known until tonight

Can you hear me ground-control?
I think I‘m lost in space
Do you hear me ground-control?
An unknown planet appears on my screen....

Never thought I‘d be an astronaut
Never thought I‘d leave the earth
Never thought I‘d fly so high
Break through the sky while you hold me in your embrace

And as the air starts getting thin
Your lips on mine: exchanging love‘s oxygen
And the last call they receive:
Our capsule vanishing somewhere behind Andromeda....

We can‘t hear you ground-control!
I think we‘re lost in space!
We can‘t hear you anymore!
An unknown planet appears on our screen....

I‘ll meet you tonight
on Planet Kyrah!
I‘ll kiss you tonight
on Planet Kyrah!
7. Forever I Ride (8:57)
As the autumn wind blows hard in crawling devastation
I was not prepared to find fate in a state of rage
Love once seemed so strong to me, promising salvation
another Tragedie d‘amour appearing on life‘s stage
And again he hears the raven‘s cry....

I‘m strucked down without warning
by your words like cyanide
She left me in the morning but forever I will ride
And forever I ride...

Suddenly I‘m lost inside tremendous aberration
Songs that used to make me glad now make me wanna cry
Restlessly I‘m walking empty streets up to the station
Standing there in silence as the trains keep passing by
And he turns his face towards the sky...

The stars fade in the dawning, but the door‘s still opened wide
And still I am adorning, but forever I will ride
And forever I ride....

In love from the first time that I saw you
and the fire in your eyes
Take me to your sea of flowers
Hold me as the wind shakes the rye

Lady of the Lake: I long to be with you
Burning streams like ours cannot disband
The mist it spreads your name in early morning dew
Forever shall you be Queen of the Land

Incense leaving trails of smoke
A vision of us fasting our hands
Angels laying siege to my heart
and I shall not longer withstand

Lady of the Lake: I long to be with you
This love of ours will never ever end
May the silver moon make all our dreams come true
Forever shall you be Queen of the Land

Hear the song of the waves
Storms calling up thunder and light
A premature grave overgrown by black lillies of night
Hekate arise!
Bring back the love of my life!

Rain falls down, it soaks my cloak on this cold grey morning
I missed the last train that could have me taken back to you!
There‘s no use in staying here waiting for the dawning
The fool just saddles up again as if he always knew
that again he‘d hear the ravens cry....
8. Baleias Bailando (5:16)
By the ocean I sat down one day
Saw my life the other way
All those trials to no avail
Broken dreams was all I bloody gained

Remember well when I was a child
They promised me a paradise
But promises turned into lies
leaving us a world demise!

Hold me in your arms
Drown me in sweet moisture
Lascivious fiery breath covering
Your fangs softly penetrate
the pleasure and the pain
Dissolving I discern:
I'm not dead!

I asked for love, got a golden cage
Plastic emotions in a plastic age
The pain I felt they told me wasn‘t real
„The Earth!“, I cried: My last appeal!

Now it‘s my turn to realize
To change the road, to change the side
The past has gone, may it rest in peace
A new dawn fades as She sows the seed

Hold me in your arms
Drown me in sweet moisture
Lascivious fiery breath overflow
Your fangs softly penetrate
the pleasure and the pain
Dissolving I discern:
I'm alive!

A midnight‘s dream disclosure
saw momentous desire
My life layed in your hands
My confidence
The background of reality
just one step away
Am I to cross the frontier?
Am I to dare?

In dreams I died a thousand times
But then one dream: A golden shrine
Her whispered words did soothe my grief
What a candour in this world of thieves
I hear the call of the roaring sea
Still a fire‘s burning inside of me
The wind shall take me to another shore
The Earth I am, for evermore!

Way down, carry me down to the ocean of love!

Alone again I stand
amongst the debris of a dream
having to face once more
the madness of love
But I know that the Goddess
will hear my yearning call
and her enchanting song
will make my heart dance
9. End of December (8:30)
10. Farewell (4:36)
I wanted to live on top of a mountain
but it‘s cold and forsaken there without you now

I wanted to dive into the ocean of love
but I got shipwrecked on the shores of broken dreams

For you I sang songs of the nightswan
and each line I wrote was a beat of my heart

Forever burning on love‘s funeral pyre:
Stop beating now, my bleeding heart!
For this knife did cut too deep
so for the last time I‘m trying not to breathe

Once there was a fire in the lighthouse of my heart:
I gave you so much more than just my love
and you broke so much more than just a promise

Our planet vanished so devastatingly
amongst the mists of time
There was no treasure to be found at Rainbow‘s End
somewhere behind Andromeda

I‘ve been waiting til the end of december
but no more will I ride
for the winter solstice‘s child
will pass away silently on a midsummer‘s night

So may you come now, my Dead Romantic Angel
serenade Kyrahnean Hymns to me
Hold me in your arms
cover me with elder flowers
and take me down to my beloved sea

I‘m so tired, so tremendously tired
Please wait for me under the midnight sun
where I will sing and dance again
and my laughter will be heard
echoing down the hillside again...

Oh, how I tried to believe, how I loved,
How I tried to hold on to my dream;
How I wanted to live - but now I‘m going home
to a place where love is more than just a four-letter word
and as I kiss the memory of yours goodnight
I‘m beginning to see the light...

Ich liebe Dich für immer!
