Falling Awake

Written by Johnny Lee Andrews, Tarja Turunen

Phantom voices with no words to follow
At the mercy of the cold and hollow
I withdrew into my sanctuary of silence
My defense

In this moment I am just becoming
Liberated from my cell of nothing
No sensation there was only breathing
Overcome oblivion

Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains
Is the dying memory
And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling
I am falling awake

Waves of melodies once forgotten
Like a symphony across the ocean
Never knew that they could hear my calling
Deep within
Crashing in
Rushing in
Like falling

Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains
Is the dying memory
And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling
I am falling awake

There is no returning to that emptiness,
Loneliness
The dream that lives inside of me
Won't fade away, it's wide awake

Falling Awake
From a walking sleep
And all that remains
Is the dying memory
And now I can dive for
These dreams I make
Like I am Falling
I am falling awake

The Good Die Young

Written  by Christian Kolonovits, Klaus Meine, Rudolf Schenker

You wake up 
Watch the world go 'round 
You shiver 
Feeling upside down 
Your heart is beating fast 
Pumping blood to your head 
Another day to fight 
You have a prayer on your lips under the desert sun 
And a loaded gun 

You remember every word 
That your father said 
Stay out of trouble son 
And be true to yourself 
You'll be working like a dog 
Raise a family 
And life will be alright 
But now it's written in the stars if you'll make it out alive 
Out alive 

The good die young 
There might be no tomorrow 
In god we trust 
Through all this pain and sorrow 
The good die young 
The flame will burn forever 
And no one knows your name 
Bring the boys back home again 

It was a quiet day 

On the streets of hope 
When the bomb went off 
At the side of the road 
Sounds of breaking steel 
An windshield full of blood 
No enemy in sight 
It feels like in a movie scenes are passing by 
It's your life
