ONE MORE DAY
Another day is passing by
But I’m still standing, you might ask me “Why?
How many heartaches can you take,
How many wounds until your heart will break?”
I’m moving on, I’m pushing on
Have no direction, but I’m going strong
Just like a ship without a sail
With a hurricane right on its tail
I can’t allow myself to fail
One more day – if you can give me one more day
Just one day – before you leave me – one more day.
The ones I met, the ones I lost
Became a single – kind of scary – ghost
It keeps on knocking on my door
I tell you. I can’t take it anymore
Entire life – a bloody mess
But at this point I couldn’t care less
Whoever stayed, whoever fled:
You sort it out while I’m – instead –
Will keep on moving straight ahead
The race is on... I kneel and pray:
“Just give me one more day.”
ANOTHER MAN DOWN
Hey, how’ve you been? Dreamed ‘bout you lately...
Whom have you seen? Miss you all... miss you greatly
I saw you smile... when? Last december?
Yeah, it’s been awhile since you left. I remember
Pain... as we’re saying goodbye... pouring rain
Me? I don’t know... lost all my senses –
Facing the war makes you strong yet defenseless
Hell’s all around, all that dying and screaming
Where’s no way out – you are next... so I’m dreaming
I close my eyes and hear: “Another man down”
But far behind me – I’m flying –
Somebody else’s body hits the ground I’m moving away... or just trying?
I spread my wings and hear: “Another man down.” more screaming, cursing and crying
Somebody else’s body hitting the ground... I open my eyes... and I am this "another man down"
Hey, it’s getting colder... oh no, time to go
AN EMPTY SHELL
I saw you all around the place – a sure and solid bet:
No heart, no soul, a common face as cold as you can get.
Without a clue, without a cause
You’re moving forward just because
It’s in your blood, cuz otherwise you’re just an
Behind that almost perfect mask –
No feelings, no remorse
Remember time is running fast,
The sound of closing doors.
Is getting louder every day. No use to look another way –
You never had a real name, you’re just an
The end is near – so unavoidable and rude –
I guess you’re dwelling on the past,
Whatever happens here is easy understood:
You’re never meant to last, you’re never gonna last.
HARD RAIN’S COMING
Tell me how do you sleep at night and help me
To understand your twisted mind:
Living off someone’s misery and giving
Away the pain... and feeling fine?
You’re waiting for a miracle to wash your sins away?
Sorry, but I can’t change your pity story...
There’s nothing I can do at all
Too late, the only thing that’s left is to wait
A little for that final call... your fall
Still praying for a miracle to wash your sins away?
Whoever you betrayed, whatever price you’ve paid –
It all’ll be washed away... a hard rain is coming
Whoever’s on the run, whatever’s left undone –
It will be over soon... a hard rain is coming
No sorrow and no fear and all your sins will disappear
Whoever’s path you’ve crossed, whatever’s hurting most -
It all’ll be washed away... a hard rain is coming
You’re on your own, whatever you have done –
It’s time to pay
Just walk alone and settle all your depths –
Here, right away
A heart of stone is breaking quickly... man,
It’s not your day
But either way – you can’t stop dreaming,
Well... keep on dreaming
HALF PAST LONELINESS
Life’s not the same without you
All this time around you’s been a dream
And you’d never guess:
Still I can hear your laughter even ages after
You’ve been gone and I confess:
Half past loneliness... I’m waiting for
All my dreams to show up at my door
The clock has stopped at
Half past loneliness... I’m wide awake
How much more a wounded,
Broken heart can take?
Wait just a minute longer –
Pain is getting stronger every time
You’re on my mind
Now all I do is trying to forget, denying
A sense of time of any kind
SHOW ME HOW TO LIVE
In the midnight hour I’m sitting by the fire,
Running out of memories to burn
Look, I’m in your power – beaten down and tired,
Waiting for the last thing left to learn
So show me how to live
You can leave me waiting by this dying fire...
Just a single question, anyway:
What’s the point – creating life but no desire
To hang on and face another day?
So show me how to live, cuz all I do is trying
To honestly forgive, but patience’s running dry
So show me how to live: you can’t keep denying
What all you’ve had to give – a thousand ways to die
Now show me how to live.
Can’t go on without knowing
How to make it through another day
Can’t be blind yet keep on going
Tell me why you’ve left me here to stay
All alone... on my own... it goes on and on
Lift me up and bring me straight to heaven
Burn my past and everything I’ve done
Take my sins – I piled them up, all seven
...Now I see – my guarding angel’s gone
I don’t know where did you come from.
Fallen angel from a dream... you see:
I don’t care, and if it’s such a turn on –
Tear apart the very rest of me
Lose the key... let it be... set me free
However... forever... my guarding angel’s gone.
