âturning of the yearâ
it's time you got going he said before the turning of the year time you start knowing the woman you've neglected in your fear of discovery the phoenix fails to rise desire has filled me completely yet has never made me whole and desire has killed me in less subtle ways before and though I laugh at these prophecies within my spirit stirs for if they're right then what becomes of her time I stop pretending to be someone I can't even define I'm tired of trying to fit into a fantasy I need to find myself again but I don't know what that means I don't remember ever knowing me I spent so long hiding from you but all the time you always knew my secret place my sacred space was never mystery to you no mystery to anyone but me no mystery my misery I watch as she's sleeping the calm of one who'll never compromise and nothing is keeping me from opening up rising from the flames and soaring free no nothing except me its time you got going I said and then I set her free

âbelieveâ
I know a place you can go if you want to meet a girl I once adored well, her name was aurora and she was always sure to take my hand and keep me dancing spinning endless circles through the night but I know a boy who once also adored her a little too much to let her run let her slip free let her fade let her disappear into a memory of day let her never knowing how she came and it seemed too brave to let her go through one long lonely night 'cause even if they ain't fated they'd still make quite a northern light and now I can feel the sunrise opening up over me to find you in the silence I believe I'm always waiting for the light but I'm never quite getting it right don't you remember how it went I made a wish and then we met but now the lady is gone leaving me with this mourning song gone and that was never my intent but it seemed too brave to let him go for one long lonely night 'cause even if they ain't fated they'd still make quite a northern light and now I can feel the sunrise opening up over me to find you in the silence I believe

âaquariusâ
seems that I've been listed in the classifieds again no I don't know where he went and I cannot find my bed someone left a letter on the road yeah yeah someone went and left me in the chapel all alone dancing on a battlefield beneath a blackened sky just because it gives you wings it don't mean you can fly certain girls are better left alone yeah yeah now it seems I have to find an afterhours of my own funny how we never knew the quiet meant the storm was coming kept on running till the eye was over us I feel like I'm falling aquarius it looks like you're calling my bluff well I am on the cusp I feel like I'm falling in love - oh aquarius behind the rockies lies the rose of st. exupery loss echoing and if there was a magic that could wash away desire clean you would have never had a hold on me funny how we never knew what everyone could see all the time we thought we were flying if we'd only known what happens to the wind kept on runnning til the eye was over us I feel like I'm falling aquarius it looks like you're calling my bluff well I am on the cusp I feel like I'm falling in love oh aquarius

âonly oneâ
he has his strength and he has his solitude he has a secret self he hides away he has his flaws and still he has his followers he has a fortress holding them at bay yet I have known him to hold a court within where he has shown he has a heart and though he may hide it well he cannot maintain his soul is made of stone he has a dream no one will ever see save for the only one who knows the only one he never chose she has her love and she has her loneliness she has a longing a passion for impossibility she has her sorrow still she has her song she has a solace in the silence of her proud humility yet I have known her to spill the light within where she has shone where she has shown he has her heart she tries to hide it well but cannot maintain her soul is made of stone she has a dream no one will ever see save for the only who knows she was the only one the only one and still he let her go

âfarewell, my angelâ
guess if I can't get into you any other way I'll just have to bridge this divide we thought that drawing boundaries would make it all ok but you cannot hold back passion with a line it's been a long time but I still know I can find you constant even through the cold oh I know it how did it happen I left you sorry but I didn't mean to trick you my angel no I didn't mean to leave you behind me in danger oh well I guess I gave too much filled you full to overflowing but I still can see you through the haze while all around you bonfires blaze it's been a long time but I still plan to find my way back to your promised land oh I know it how did it happen I left you sorry but I didn't mean to trick you my angel no I didn't mean to leave you behind me in danger oh I didn't mean to deceive you and I know you know I still believe in the still of the night I still dream of your white

âfallenâ
I hoped you'd know if you looked back on these years the strength I must possess to surface from these fears I haven't broken my promises to you but my unspoken self-denial has fallen through and how long I've tried but you'll never be a lie your northern power pulled I walked the road with you still growing colder slipping into solitude I found the opening and plunged beneath the gray sinking in my vain belief your silver light would never fade and how hard I've tried so you'll never see me cry oh fallen the stars have scattered now new patterns to the sun some day you'll understand I was not the only one & I haven't broken my promises to you but now I'm open and a tidal rage is flowing through from how long I've tried holding it all inside now I scream it to the sky so you'll never ask me no you never asked me now you'll never ask me why

âcirclingâ
strange days circling unfamiliar constellations paint my skies I'm vying for your attention again dying from this affection for you too fond is too far gone so I'll go wandering today to the oracle asking her to show somebody else another path a way hoping she'll speak in languages I understand open to believe in any words to force this hand too guarded far too long now I'm circling casting weaving leaving this place behind circling spiraling to the other side I held on longer than I dared yet even though the essence flows it never lingers can't be touched and I'm aware I have been circling fasting bleeding needing you every night circling oh I am going down now I'm circling casting weaving leaving this fate behind circling spiraling and now I'm reaching for the light

âlullaby for t / rivalâ
sailing by the paling moon she spilled her secret way too soon and opened up the wound again opened up the womb the silencer's hand is pardoned only as her walls are hardened atrophy and apathy can never be undone and all this time I thought you were my rival well I've been blind I wish I could have known you woman can't you understand what it takes to lead a man astray a stranger always come between and splits the sheath and all this time I thought you were my rival well cruelty unkindness we're two of a kind two untold twins divided by desire now she's nothing but a shade fading from me every day until I look and see her face reflected as my own the child has a home so he won't go through this alone

âstolenâ
it all comes back again from first flush to heated rush the language that translates from soul to skin denial abdicates her reign she yields to let him in but she cannot hold something stolen she cannot hold so back to her fold where they are calling she cannot hold it all comes back again yet this tide will never rise completely she pulls back always receding illusion cannot be sustained the moon is beckoning for she cannot hold something stolen she cannot hold so back to her fold where they are calling she cannot hold and I guess it is never really blessed if you enter with a lie and if the priestess must confess she was never going to be his bride no I guess there is nothing really left if you sacrifice your pride now go on go on go on because you know it is time for she cannot hold something stolen she cannot hold so back to her fold where they're still calling she cannot hold it all comes back again and then she goes

âsilver melodyâ
i know it takes a little bit more strength a little bit more control to not feel i need you so and i know that with a little more time the silverspell of your eyes will fade away return to gray but always i am finding in my dreams a park in twilight where two children swing and their laughter seems to sing a silver melody i know there is nothing i can do no words i can say to explain how a life is changed do you know how the magic of your glitter world bewitched a blue eyed little girl became an irresistible silver melody even though her beauty shines in the dark a siren song will always tear you apart but i know i can find you in my dreams holding hands and running through the streets you gave to me a key a silver melody and i know now i know
