Starvation lyrics

Voices crying through the night
people starve and pray for bread
Darkness seems to take their life
they are living to be dead

Hey look at the world
open up your heart
spread your love around

Hey, feel the human pain
aren't you the same
Spirits have no name

[interlude]

Little children dying away
drowning flowers in the rain

All they know is fear and pain
have you nothing left to say ?

Hey look at the world
open up your heart
spread your love around
Hey, feel the human pain
aren't you the same
Spirits have no name

[interlude]

Voices crying through the night
people starve and pray for bread
Darkness seems to take their life
they are living to be dead

Hey look at the world
open up your heart
spread your love around

Hey, feel the human pain
aren't you the same
Spirits have no name

Queen of the universe lyrics

Queen of the universe, I saw you in a dream
with your eyes staring into mine
riding with the wind
I'll be with you tomorrow
and never let you run away

[interlude]

You're coming with the morning sun
you're living with the moonlight
you smile and every flower grows
you cry and they die
I'll be with you tomorrow
and never let you run away

[interlude]

Queen of the universe
daughter of starlight
I see the skies within your eyes
the pain within your tears

I'll be with you tomorrow
and never let you run away

The bride lyrics

People dancing around a fire
colours in the air
won't you come my love
to the country fair?

Kings will come from everywhere
caskets full of gold

Yeomen from the South
Rich men from the North

They're coming
hoping to win the bride

The king's daughter
pretty as a fairy tale
lovely as the first of May
Pure as a spring
she's in love with this young boy
from the village
but her father is a king
wanted her to be the queen
live in the glory ?

[Interlude]
Night is covering the sky
wide and full of pride

here the winner comes
looking for the bride

servants looking everywhere
but she can't be found

she's running with her love
she left behind the crown

The soldiers, holding up the fires, cry
in the forest
wishing not to find them there
not to find them anywhere
the king wants them dead
but their fate was to die

In the forest
where they first made  love
By the river of their own
keeping their promise

Killer lyrics

When the people, are happy
and stoned
Then comes the killer

I am death
and I need some respect
I am the killer

dirty generation
You try to put me down
Soon I will make you feel me

[interlude]

I'm the black dog
walking with you tonight
I'm a shadow
watching you anytime
time has come to get you
When the sun is bright
or when the moon is dark
Then comes the killer

Dressed in black I'm here
pointing at you
I am the killer

dirty generation
you try to put me down
So I make you feel me

I'm the black dog
walking with you tonight

I'm a shadow
watching you anytime
time has come to get you


line

A day in heaven lyrics

Sailing far
with the morning wind

blue the ocean
you and me

blue the ocean
you and me

the sun goes down
to the golden land
close your eyes
and be your man

close your eyes
and be your man
[Interlude]

hear the music
coming from the sea
song of evening
sad and free

song of evening
sad and free


line

Time of pain lyrics

Spirit of the night
took my body right
point me to the sky
let me know [I'm dying for my soul?]
mmmmmm

Summertime is gone
I'm singing you my song
the wind is blowing strong
My blond hair is turning grey

[Interlude]

Sunlight
moonlight
Time of pain

spring time
winter time
dream away
Everybody is gone
I'm sitting all alone
talking to the rain
The night is going to take me away

Spirit of the night
took my body right
point me to the sky
let me know  [ I'm dying for my soul?]

Sunlight
moonlight
Time of pain

spring time
winter time
dream away


line

Mountains lyrics

Mountains all around me
reaching out to heaven

Wild and full of colours
standing proud forever
Mountains all around me
reaching out to heaven

Wild and full of colours
standing proud forever
