The Storm Within Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Eagles (2016-11-21)
1. Distance (5:38)
It’s lost but we’ll fine it again
We must try even if it’s a distant future
It was all in our hands to the end
I just wish we had known for so much sooner

It’s not over
We’ll soon be closer than before
Can’t let this distance
Keep our destined souls apart

There’s so much I would have shared if I could
But my reaching was not getting through to you
So many times when I was misunderstood
I just wish we had spoken so much sooner

It’s not over
We’ll soon be closer than before
Can’t let this distance
Keep our destined souls apart

[Solo: Danhage]
[Solo: Englund]

We were caught in a swirl of a devious tide
Where I wish I could have guided us through the nocturnal
And I would have ran with you towards the light
Instead I was drawn further and further away

It’s not over …
2. Passing Through (5:01)
10 years from now I’ll watch from far away
10 years from now I might have found my way
10 years from now I’ll see with different eyes
Better, wiser and not as blind

Always looked for acceptance
And understood what it’s like to be different
Did not believe in transcendence
This life gave birth to independence

Does no one see it like I do?
Does no one know that we’re just passing through?
No one feel what I do?
We’re passing through

These silhouettes remain
They’re not the sum of me
No longer represent who I used to be
They just remind me of where I used to wake
How I used to think, how I used to ache
10 years from now I’ll watch from far away
10 years from now I might have found my way
10 years from now I’ll see with different eyes
Better, wiser and not as blind

Does no one see it like I do?
Does no one know that we’re just passing through?
No one feel what I do?
We’re passing through

[Solo: Englund]
[Solo: Danhage]

I always looked for acceptance
I understand what it’s like to be different
Did no believe in transcendence
Just independence

Does no one see it like I do?..
3. Someday (4:58)
I was once like you
Used to be like you
Embraced the same horizons
And shared the setting suns

I was once like you
But the surroundings are different
Now the darkness is different
I used to be like you

But if I can’t erase you
If I can’t face this alone
I might be there one day

Someday, someday
With arms wide open
Someday, someday
With arms wide open

The universe is now a darkened room
And even still nothing’s starlit
I’m here alone, all is this void
It’s devastating
I feel like I have lost my armor
I feel like I have lost my armor

Someday, someday
With arms wide open
Someday, someday
With arms wide open
With my arms wide open
My arms wide open

So I can’t erase you
Can’t do this alone
I’ll be there that day

Someday, someday…
4. Astray (5:22)
This is not for me
I can’t persist or breathe that which poisons me
My angels are falling and I lie bare
Felled by the arrows of a different calling
Urging me to look, look the other way
Faith’s amiss and I’m astray
This was never meant for me so why would I stay?

The winter once brought me this sorrow
Since everything seems to hurt just let me go

Got doubts enough to fill, an emptiness a void
I’m on the other side of life where I don’t belong
I threw myself in heaven’s arms
Wore my open wounds to see
You swore yourself to me
So join my hands in search of truth
Please take the giant leap with me
This world is not for me
So why should I stay?

The winter once brought me this sorrow
Since everything seems to hurt just let me go
I used to be stronger
I used to want this more
Is everything meant to hurt?
It won’t leave me alone

[Solo: Danhage]

Layer after layer I need to keep this hidden
Brick after brick buries it deeper and deeper
Leave it in the cold to be forgotten to grow old

The winter…
5. The Impossible (3:18)
I’ll cross the dark side of the moon
I’ll do the same with the rings of Saturn
I’ll stay awake through the Martian winter
But in the end what does it matter?
And I’ll look to the sky for any signs to justify
Or offer reasons why
There can’t be a you and I

I am watching from the outside
Dying to be on the inside
It is cold here it is freezing
While you’re asking the impossible
Because it is impossible to be this alone
To be this alone

I cross the dark side of the moon
And cross my heart in hope for this madness
To end very soon before I end in a sea of sadness

And I’m watching from the outside
Dying to be on the inside
And I’m watching from the outside
When I’m longing to be on the inside
And you’re asking the impossible
If you want me this alone
Alone…
6. My Allied Ocean (4:06)
This is for us
I’m fear I’m flight
In darkened waters we must unite
My allied ocean, my queen, my death
A sun explosion
It manifests

When darkness is falling
Want the world to burn
The fire to spread and there’s nowhere to turn
And the end of the rope
I can’t hold on
Want this world to burn
Want this world to burn

This emptiness not transient
And it will never stop it’s never silent
My allied ocean
My life escape
A sun I was but never felt

When darkness is falling
Want the world to burn
The fire to spread and there’s nowhere to turn
At the end of the rope
I can’t hold on
Want this world to burn
Want this world to burn

[Solo: Danhage]

When darkness is falling…
7. In Orbit (5:38)
I’m caught here in this vacuum
I’m falling from a sunless sky
I’ll rid myself of value
And leave this emptiness behind

So I run before it is over
I run but still never leave it seems
Run but not getting closer
I run to get away from this dream

I have been watching you from a distance
I have been monitoring you from cloudless skies
I’ve been calling your name just to ease your resistance
But nothing seems to shift your darkened sky

Run before it is over
Run but still never leave it seems
Run but not getting closer
I run to get away from this dream

I’m in orbit
Stars exploding when I call your name
Here’s too dark and too lonely
You’re my compass
My only reason to stay sane

[Solo: Danhage]
[Solo: Englund]

Run before it is over…
8. The Lonely Monarch (5:28)
I dwell in your shadow
I dare not wake what’s asleep
I grew in your shadow
I never defied the resting beast
But when you dress in your black wings again
When you turn your back on me again
Still not denying you, still not denying you

I’ve tried a thousand times
And bowed a thousand more
And I fought through eternal nights
To keep us from falling
It’s written across the sky
It offers clarity
It is not you it’s only me
Who keeps us from falling down

I always felt a burden it was always hard
Always felt uncertain you never meant no harm
Raise that head again, wake that will again
Solution could be tranquil and absolution so close
Don’t fear to turn inside, leave that path behind
Cross the inner lines, change your ways to end
Where are your reasons to extend the lonely monarch’s war again?

I’ve tried a thousand times
And bowed a thousand more
I fought through eternal nights
To keep us from falling
It’s written across the sky
It offers clarity
It is not you it’s only me
Who keeps us from falling

[Solo: Danhage]
[Solo: Englund]

I’ve tried a thousand times
And bowed a thousand more
I fought through eternal nights
To keep us from falling
It’s written across the sky
It’s clear for all to see
That it’s not you it’s only me
Who keeps us from falling down
Who keeps us from falling
Who keeps us from falling down
9. The Paradox of the Flame (5:40)
So there you are
I have been searching for so long
And here you are
Feels like a trick on my senses

How I wish for you to carry me
Far away from harm and to ensure that all
All we left is still buried deep
So that our hearts will endure

So here we are
I understand our intentions are different
It’s no one’s fault
But there are light years in between us

How I wish that we’d still feel the same
That we did never change and that we’d share tomorrow
No time enough to mend our ways
Without our hearts being torn

I begged until my knees were sore
I tried so much more than you
You never heard my words and I felt I was never enough for you
And here we stand heartbroken now
We lost our way, lost somehow
And there is no hate, I might still love
The paradox of the flame
10. Disconnect (6:59)
Gone
She’s gone
How am I supposed to make it alone?

Don’t leave this
Don’t leave me
I’ll disconnect
Before it takes me over
I undress and fall
Wish to leave it all
I disconnect
Before it takes me over

Is this, if this is all I have now
Then I, then I need to disconnect now
I never meant to be indifferent
Never wanted you to feel irrelevant
You were
You were never insignificant

So don’t leave this
Don’t leave me
I’ll disconnect
Before it takes me over
I undress and fall
Wish to leave it all
I disconnect
Before it takes me over

[Solo: Danhage]
[Solo: Englund]

Don’t leave this
Don’t leave me…
11. The Storm Within (6:15)
It is dark I can hear the crows
And the autumn leaves falls and falls
Trees asleep still stretch for the sky
They belong to me
They stretch for us you see

If all were just dreams we’d be safe
But we’re all just pale prints of passed days
The consequence and the cause
The reasons of why we did lose

It is late when I watch the sun hide
Hide behind the dark mountainside
Taste the salt that lands on my skin
There’s not a sound just the storm within

You tore down my walls
You stole my armor
You’re under my skin, you conquer you win
My back’s in the dust, you triumph you grin
And I know I’d heal better
If I’d surrender to feel

And we wrote life as it passed
As nothing else could matter at all

You made the sun rise
The stars fall and darkness smaller
We walked many days in sorrow
But also in daylight’s grace
We gave worth to that which was hollow
Sometimes just two lost souls
And we wrote life as it passed
Much too certain that it’d last forever
We wrre beyond the difficult
