Sign in the sky Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level MankindDestroyer (2016-05-05)
1. The Great Wall (1:45)
2. Dead Lights (4:40)
Lust and hope crumbled to ashes
What once was there had no reason to be
Primal attraction, late night passion
We should have known it was best left alone

Beyond the point of accusation
The road is blocked, there'll be no comin' back
Our motivation only sensation
There should have been more than flesh in our sin

Deceptions of the night time
Shattered by the day
But even if I knew the end
I would have started anyway

Dead lights, last rites fadin' to gray
Dead lights, dark ice driftin' away

She wore despair like a rank on her sleeve
Battle ribbons, the lines on her face
Her only actions; misfits reactions
The cuts aren't clean but no scars can be seen

Deceptions of the night time
Shattered by the day
But even if I knew the end
I would have started anyway

Dead lights, last rites fadin' to gray
Dead lights, dark ice driftin' away

Dead lights, last rites fadin' to gray
Dead lights, dark, dark ice
I see you driftin' away
I see you driftin' away

After the strain, exhausted and drained
Lyin' together and lyin' apart
No sense of pain, avoidin' all blame
We have so little to say

Deceptions of the night time
Shattered by the day
But even if I knew the end
I would have started anyway

Dead lights, last rites fadin' to gray
Dead lights, dark ice driftin' away

Dead lights, last rites fadin' to gray
Dead lights, dark, dark ice
I see you driftin' away

(Dead lights) These are the last rites
(Dead lights) Dark, dark ice
(Dead lights) Fadin' to gray
(Dead lights) I see you driftin' away
(Dead lights) Driftin' away
(Dead lights) I see you driftin' away
(Dead lights) Driftin' away
3. Animal Victim (4:00)
You shook me up, you took me down
Then you turned my world all around
You made your moves, you led me on
You grabbed my heart and then you tore it apart

You told me lies and then said, "No, no, no"
I paid the price but you still let me go

You can't treat this man like an animal victim
You won't trap me again, I'm no animal victim

Oh yeah

You picked me up, you shot me down
Then you left me cold on the ground
You locked me out and kept the key
You closed the door while I was beggin' for more

I feel the fire but you say, "No, no, no"
You pulled the wire and then you let me go

You can't treat this man like an animal victim
You've gotta understand, I'm no animal victim
You can't treat this man like an animal victim

I saw your heart and it was shining black
Just like the nails you used to scratch my back, oh no
Oh yeah

I ain't your animal victim
I'm tired of wearing these chains
I ain't your animal victim
Won't let it happen again, no, no, no, no
Animal victim

You can't treat this man like an animal victim
You won't trap me again, I'm no animal victim

Animal, animal, animal victim (Oh no)
Animal, animal victim
Animal, animal, animal victim (Oh yeah, yeah, yeah)
Animal, animal victim
4. In the Middle of the Night (4:22)
Always on my own
I've been spending too much time all alone
I just can't go on, no
Nights go flying by
Aimless walks and empty talks
And I wonder why
You can't be here

Losing track of time
You are always on my mind
I've been too long without you
But the moment's drawing near
When you'll never disappear
I'm gonna love you
I'm gonna love you forever

Since you came along, your light's inside me
Nothing can go wrong when you're beside me
When I feel you next to me

In the middle of the night
In the middle of a lonely night
You take me out of the cold

In the middle of the night
In the middle of a lonely night
You help the darkness unfold, yeah

Feeling safe within your arms
I'm protected from all harm
You will always surround me
'Cause the moment's finally here
When you'll never disappear
I'm gonna love you
I'm gonna love you forever

Since you came along, your light's inside me
Nothing can go wrong when you're beside me
When I feel you next to me

In the middle of the night
In the middle of a lonely night
You take me out of the cold

In the middle of the night
In the middle of a lonely night
You help the darkness unfold
We make love at first light

I know it's love and I know that it's real
I know it's love, we both know what we feel
I know it's for you, and I know it's for me
I'm gonna love you for the rest of my life

In the middle of the night
In the middle of a lonely night
You take me out of the cold

In the middle of the night
In the middle of a lonely night
You help the darkness unfold
We make love at first light

In the middle of the night
In the middle of a lonely night
You take me out of the cold

In the middle of the night
In the middle of a lonely night
You help the darkness unfold
We make love at first light

In the middle of the night
In the middle of a lonely night
You take me out of the cold

In the middle of the night
In the middle of a lonely night
You help the darkness unfold
We make love at first light
5. Won't Give It Up (4:29)
Time flies and love cries
There has got to be some change
How long can this last?
Distance takes a toll on our love
Oh yeah

Our wait will pay off
As long as we can be strong
I know what I want
And I'll fight to keep it alive

You're my friend
You're my lover too understand
We can make it through
One thing is sure, I am not gonna lose
Lose my love for you

I won't give it up
I won't give it up
I won't give up my love for you
'Cause no one makes me feel like you do
Like you do

I've been without you
Longer than I should have been
Now soon I'll be back
And never go away again

You're my friend
You're my lover too understand
We can make it through
But one thing is sure, I am not gonna lose
Lose my love for you

I won't give it up
I won't give it up
I won't give up my love for you
'Cause no one makes me feel like you do

I won't give it up
I won't give it up
I won't give up my love for you
'Cause no one makes me feel like you do

I won't give it up
I won't give it up
I won't give it up

I won't give it up
I won't give it up
I won't give up my love for you
'Cause no one makes me feel like you do

I won't give it up
I won't give it up
I won't give up my love for you
Give up, give up, give up, give up

I won't give it up
I won't give it up
I won't give up my love for you
'Cause no one makes me feel like you do

I won't give it up
I won't give it up
I won't give it up
I won't give it up
I won't give it up
Give up, give up, give up, give up
I won't give it up
6. Sign in the Sky (5:44)
Darkness surrounds us and it's closing in
Feeling frustration and fearing the end
There's a reason things are gonna change
We've got the power to win at this game

Hold on, hold on tight
We can find all the answers, put an end to this fight
Move on, move on, move on through
Make a stand and be counted
We control the future

There's a sign in the sky
There's a light in the distance
And it's calling my name to come closer

There's a sign in the sky
There's a fire in the distance
And it's lighting the way to go on, on and on

Rainbows of blackness and clouds of despair
Now cannot vanish, we just need to care
We're the reason things are gonna change
We've got the power to win at this game

Hold on, hold on tight
We can find all the answers, put an end to this fight
Move on, move on, move on through
Make a stand and be counted
We control the future

There's a sign in the sky
There's a light in the distance
And it's calling my name to come closer

There's a sign in the sky
There's a fire in the distance
And it's lighting the way to go on, on and on

We know the secrets, we know them all
We'll take the chances and we'll answer their call
We'll make it our way and this will all fall
We can have it all

Move on, move on through
Make a stand and be counted
We control the future

There's a sign in the sky
There's a light in the distance
And it's calling my name to come closer

There's a sign in the sky
There's a fire in the distance
And it's lighting the way to go on

There's a sign in the sky
There's a light in the distance
And it's calling my name to come closer

There's a sign in the sky
There's a fire in the distance
And it's lighting the way to go on
7. Don't Ever Say Goodbye (3:47)
It was the hottest night of summer
And I was spendin' it with you
Sippin' cokes and dancin' slow
Hoping you could feel it too

Like a picture perfect postcard
We were staring at the stars
Holding hands and makin' plans
For things we would never do

Monika stand beside me
And let me feel the heat
Monika reach out for me
And we can both be free

Don't ever say goodbye
Tell me that you won't walk away
Don't ever say goodbye
Stay with me for always and a day
Don't ever say goodbye

When autumn finally hits us
In a technicolor rush
Summer ends and love begins
With a single gentle touch

Monika stand beside me
And let me feel the heat
Monika reach out for me
And we can both be free

Don't ever say goodbye
Tell me that you won't walk away
Don't ever say goodbye
Stay with me for always and a day
Don't ever say goodbye

Don't ever say goodbye
Tell me that you won't walk away
Don't ever say goodbye
Stay with me for always and a day

Don't ever say goodbye
Tell me that you won't walk away
Don't ever say goodbye
Stay with me for always and a day
Don't ever say goodbye
8. Broken Dream (0:49)
9. Second Chance (5:04)
I can still remember
Shadows from the past
Haunted dreams and midnight schemes
Shattered like the glass

Moments charged with fortune
Slipped right through my hands
What could have been can now begin
Time to take a stand

I could have held tomorrow
But I let it go
Now I've learned to hold on
And I'll never let it go

Time stops for no one
The music plays and you must dance
Each race so hard run
There can be no second chance
Second chance

I can still remember
But the memory's fading fast
Future plans and shifting sands
Lift me from the past

I could have held tomorrow
But I let it go
Now I've learned to hold on
And I'll never let it go

Time stops for no one
The music plays and you must dance
Each race so hard run
There can be no second chance

Time stops for no one
The music plays and you must dance
Each race so hard run
There can be no second chance
Second chance

Time stops for no one
The music plays and you must dance
Each race so hard run
There can be no second chance

Time stops for no one
The music plays and you must dance
Each race so hard run
There can be no second chance
Second chance
10. Bitter Cold (4:07)
Storm watch, warning lights, panic fills the sky
Nightmare, frozen air, heaven rages on
Lightning splits the night, thunder rocks the earth
Black clouds open wide and spit out icy hell

My coat wrapped tight around me
To protect me from the cold
But the wind cuts through my clothing
And the chill rips through my skin

(Bitter cold) Taking its toll
(Bitter cold) I'm losing control
(Bitter cold) I just can't go on
(Bitter cold)

Windswept barren waste, punished by the snow
Fast freeze, silent pain, paralyzed with fright
Humbled by the power, blinded by the frost
Stumbling slowly onward, fearing all is lost

The fight goes on around me
I am weary from the cold
But the wind howls without mercy
Lashing out against my soul

(Bitter cold) Taking its toll
(Bitter cold) I'm losing control
(Bitter cold) I just can't go on
(Bitter cold)
11. Take Your Time (3:51)
Turning back to older voices
Thinking back to other times
Reeling back from all the choices
Run away from another rhyme

How can I know
Just how to feel
When everything's changing
I need to know
Just what is real
And when I can seize it

Take your time
There's no need for you to be afraid
You can take your time
Take your time
I can wait as long as I must wait
I will take my time

Walking out to open spaces
Watching out for danger signs
Burning out on empty faces
I can't write even one more line

How can I know
Just how to feel
When everything's changing
I need to know
Just what is real
And when I can seize it

Take your time
There's no need for you to be afraid
You can take your time
Take your time
I can wait as long as I must wait
I will take my time

Broken words
Scattered thoughts
Token verses and scraps of wisdom
Will this be all I leave behind

Take your time
There's no need for you to be afraid
You can take your time
Take your time
I can wait as long as I must wait
I will take my time

Take your time
There's no need for you to be afraid
You can take your time
Take your time
I can wait as long as I must wait
I will take my time

Take your time
There's no need for you to be afraid
You can take your time
Take your time
I can wait as long as I must wait
12. Harder Than Hell (4:03)
Can't you see that we're goin' wrong?
Tried so hard but we lost our way
Been with you for so very long
Got to know if I should leave or stay

I want you to take me inside
Open your eyes and take me for a ride
I need you to want to make me stay
Have to hear you say you'll never run away

Don't freeze the fire
Take it higher tonight, tonight
Feed our desire

Livin' with you, I should be lovin' with you
'Cause you're hotter, hotter, hotter than
Livin' with you, I should be lovin' with you
But it's harder, harder, harder than hell

Can't you see we could start again?
Play the odds now and roll the dice
Take a chance or we'll never win, no
Raise the heat and make the sacrifice

I want you to take me inside
Open your eyes and take me for a ride
I need you to want to make me stay
Have to hear you say you'll never run away

Don't freeze the fire
Take it higher tonight, tonight
Feed our desire

Livin' with you, I should be lovin' with you
'Cause you're hotter, hotter, hotter than
Livin' with you, I should be lovin' with you
But it's harder, harder, harder than hell

Don't freeze the fire
Take it higher tonight, tonight
Feed our desire

Livin' with you, I should be lovin' with you
'Cause you're hotter, hotter, hotter than
Livin' with you, I should be lovin' with you
But it's harder, harder, harder than

Livin' with you, I should be lovin' with you
'Cause you're hotter, hotter, hotter than
Livin' with you, I should be lovin' with you
But it's harder, harder, harder than

Livin' with you, I should be lovin' with you
'Cause you're hotter, hotter, hotter than
Livin' with you, I should be lovin' with you
But it's harder, harder, harder than
13. So Long (5:03)
Packed suitcase stands by the open door
All has been said and the tears have dried
And I don't want, no, "if you leave me I will die"
We've already said all our last goodbyes

But when you need me
Just think of the times that we shared
Of the love I tried to give you
And how little that you cared

So long, so long
I'll remember you
So long, so long
Will you think of me too?
So long, so long
I'll be missing you
Maybe one day you'll feel like I do

I never, ever thought you'd mean so much to me
Or that one day I'd be leaving you
Now I must go back to a place where I belong
Try to start again, and go on without you

But when you need me
Just think of the times that we shared
Of the love I tried to give you
And how little that you cared

So long, so long
I'll remember you
So long, so long
Will you think of me too?
So long, so long
I'll be missing you
Maybe one day you'll feel like I do

I know there'll be some hard times
But it's time, yes, it's time to move on

So long, so long
I'll remember you
So long, so long
Will you think of me too?
So long, so long
I'll be missing you
Maybe one day you'll feel like I do

So long, so long
I'll remember you
So long, so long
Will you think of me too?
So long, so long
