Lyrics

Edge Of The Night

When the night comes down, and the shadows fall

When you`re all alone, do you hear me call?

I will come for you, through the wind and rain

To be by your side, in your dreams again…

On the edge of the night, do you feel it?

On the edge of the night, did you dream it?

When the darkness comes, and the mist rolls in

As you lie awake, think of me again…

I will ride the storm, guided by the moon

Don`t you lock your door, I`ll be with you soon…

On the edge of the night, do you feel it?

On the edge of the night, did you dream it?

At the break of dawn, I`ll be on my way

For I cannot live by the light of day

But you felt my touch, soft against your skin

And when you dream of me, I`ll return again…

On the edge of the night, do you feel it?

On the edge of the night, did you dream it?

Black-Winged Dove

Verse 1:

I know things are changing; I`ve nothin` to gain to see you lose

I bear no false witness – you have the will, so you must choose

You say fate just led you right to the centre of her storm

Hot sweat and fever; beneath her sheets, you rise and fall…

Chorus:

She casts a shadow in the sky above – just like a black winged dove

She`ll break your spirit; she don`t need your love…

She`s a black-winged dove.

Verse 2:

Sweet life`s elixir; the scent of her body, soft and warm.

You see no reason to leave her – there is no high enough reward…

Chorus:

She casts a shadow in the sky above – just like a black-winged dove

She`ll break your spirit; she don`t need your love…

She`s a black-winged dove.

And then she`ll leave you `cos you`re not enough –

She`s a black-winged dove…

Bridge:

I choose you – you will choose me! Just wait and see…

Come; dance within me – I`ll take you into my skies,

I`ll let you see the colours through my eyes –

I`ll let you in…let me in!

She`s a black-winged dove in the skies above…

You`re caught in her shadow…

DEAD LOVE

I lay a wreath of flowers at your feet;

To negate the need to speak up

For our love; for our dead love.

Lay a wreath of flowers at your feet;

For all promises I could not keep –

For our dead love; for our dead love.

You sacrificed the vitality,

Stripped the passion; brought me to my knees

for your dead love; for your dead love.

And the alter where you kneel,

will justify the way you feel –

I was never enough

To match your dead love.

You are inspired – you`re brought to life;

You are reborn, you’ve seen the light!

Get outta here;

I don’t want to hear

How it appears to you!…

   I’m sure you’ll not despair,

Cause you were never really there;

So hard to miss – Mr elusive!

So you hedge your bets;

I guess  you lost!

And in your words you count the cost

Of your dead loves; of your dead loves.

You can rebuke,

You can deny – and with a wry

smile I cannot lie;

It’s great to speed your recovery.

Then with ungloved hand

you take a swipe;

with a forked tongue you throw your knife,

and with one skilled word of an executioner`s sword –

you killed our love…

OBSESSION

VERSE 1

I WON`T GO ANYWHERE IN THIS WORLD WITHOUT YOU,

I WON`T DO ANYTHING IN MY LIFE ALONE.

I DON`T DREAM ANYMORE, UNLESS I DREAM ABOUT YOU –

I CAN`T  LIVE ANYWHERE, UNTIL I TAKE YOU HOME

CHORUS

YOU KNOW YOU ARE THE SUN SHINING ON ME

THE BRIGHTEST STAR, YOU BURN ON AND ON

AND WHERE YOU ARE, WELL THAT`S WHERE YOU FIND ME

BECAUSE YOU ARE MY ONE OBSESSION

VERSE 2

YOU HAVE GIVEN ME MY REASON FOR LIVING

YOU ARE EVERYTHING THAT I`VE BEEN SEARCHING FOR

YOU`RE MY ENERGY, THE AIR THAT I`M BREATHING

AND YOU WILL NEVER BE ALONE ANYMORE

CHORUS

YOU KNOW YOU ARE THE LIGHT THAT WILL GUIDE ME

WHEN SHADOWS FALL, AND THE NIGHT HAS BEGUN

SLEEP WILL COME, WHEN YOU LAY DOWN BESIDE ME

BECAUSE YOU ARE MY ONE OBSESSION

OBSESSION…YOU`RE THE ONLY ONE

OBSESSION, OBSESSION…

YOU`RE THE ONLY ONE

VERSE 3

YOU WON`T SEE ME, BUT I`M STANDING RIGHT BESIDE YOU

YOU DON`T HEAR ME, WHEN I`M WHISPERING YOUR NAME

WHEN YOU TURN OUT THE LIGHT, I`M RIGHT OUTSIDE YOUR WINDOW

YOU DON`T KNOW ME, BUT I LOVE YOU JUST THE SAME…

Samhain Welcome

Verse 1

Now the Autumn leaves have started falling;

Stormy winds are blowin` through the trees.

I hear the restless spirits; they are calling

Through the thinning veil of Samhain –

Chorus:

Come, share with me, in the last days of Summer

Our spirits are free, and the dance has begun.

Come, share with me, in the last days of Summer

Come share with me, come darling come.

La –da da-n-da etc

Verse 2

As our sunlit days are growing shorter

And October nights are drawing in

When the mist is drifting on the water

Let the sacred ritual begin…

Chorus 2:

Come share with me, in the last days of Summer

Take what you need for the winter ahead.

The dance we begin in the last days of Summer

Will celebrate life at the Feast of the Dead.

La-da da-n-da etc

SLOWLY COMING DOWN

VERSE 1

A HOT AFTERNOON, THE CURTAINS ARE DRAWN;

NO-ONE TO WITNESS HER NAKED FORM.

BOUNCING OFF CEILINGS, CLIMBING THE WALLS;

RECORDING THE FRACTURES OF PREVIOUS FALLS.

THE EYES OF AN INNOCENT, DRINKING IT IN –

WATCHING HER MOTHER DANCE, SPIN AFTER SPIN.

NO-ONE TO CATCH HER, IF SHE WERE TO FALL

HE SENT HER SPINNING, AND SHE WITNESSED IT ALL

CHORUS: AND SHE`S SLOWLY COMING, SLOWLY COMING DOWN…

VERSE 2

FROM FLYING HIGH, IN JUST ONE NIGHT –

WE WERE CRAWLING ON ALL FOURS…

DON`T OPEN THE WINDOWS, OR ANSWER THE DOORS;

DON`T TALK TO STRANGERS – ARE YOU LISTENING?

(DON`T TALK TO STRANGERS, DON`T YOU LET THEM IN…)

BUT THE DEVIL DON`T POSE AS A MONSTER,

HE MASQUERADES AS YOUR FRIEND.

HE DIDN`T HAVE TO FORCE AN ENTRY-

YOU WERE THE ONE WHO INVITED HIM…

CHORUS: AND SHE`S SLOWLY COMING, SLOWLY COMING DOWN…

VERSE 3

BEHIND THE DOORS, THE PARTY BEGINS

WITH JUDGES AND LORDS DRESSED AS CARNIVAL QUEENS.

COSTUME BALLS, AND COKE-LINES ON MIRRORS –

INNOCENCE LOST TO THE SEASON`S SINNERS…

PRETTY THINGS ARE SENT TO AMUSE YOU

ALL OF THEM, SIR, ARE FREE TO ABUSE –

NO QUESTIONS –  NOTHING`S FORBIDDEN,

WHEN YOU`RE ABOVE THE LAW YOU CAN`T LOSE…

THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS

Verse 1

MIRROR, MIRROR ON THE WALL

WHEN THE NIGHTMARE COMES TO CALL

WHEN I NEED A PLACE TO HIDE

TAKE ME TO THE OTHER SIDE

CHORUS

THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS

NOTHING HERE WAS MEANT TO LAST

THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS

TAKE ME, TAKE ME

THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS

LEAVE MY FUTURE IN THE PAST

THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS

TAKE ME, TAKE ME AWAY…

VERSE 2

MIRROR, MIRROR LOOK AT ME

TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT TO SEE?

WHO I AM, YOU`LL NEVER KNOW

TAKE ME IN, OR LET ME GO

CHORUS

BRIDGE:

I CAN SEE REALITY FADE AWAY, FADE AWAY

NO GOODBYES, I CLOSE MY EYES, AND FADE AWAY

FAR AWAY…
