The Pearl (The Cove)

Fall Apart (The Love Song of a Sea God)

---------------------------------------------------------

You, you came into this life

To see what you could find

You took me for a friend

Afraid, I know you feel this way

But I can’t seem to take

Your mind away from it

 

And I know that these things will fall apart

I’m growing from the very start

I finally see the place

Where you and I will make our final mark

Upon our interrupted hearts

And finally a flame erupts inside:

 

'Wait! Don't Go!'

 

And I feel the wave crashing down

I hear that solitary sound

And I feel the wave crashing down

All around, you were always on my mind...

 

(The Prince of the Sirens Sings)

 

Go, see it to it’s end

Make all your amends and tell me when it's over

Fade into the silent light

I feel it all the time

But you don’t recognize this world

 

I feel for you my Love

'I’m afraid of this world'

Fall away from the night

 

'Hey! Don't Go!'

 

And I feel the wave crashing down

I hear that solitary sound

And I feel the wave crashing down

All around, you were always on my mind (X1)

Engulfed (Under the Wine Dark Sea)

---------------------------------------------------------

Satin shadow

These eyes couldn’t capture

Forgetting myself

As the days are running faster

Connecting the edge

Of a life to another

Sending the echoes

Of an essence rediscovered

 

Calling out again

To the silence of the deep wood

Looking at the world through a new light

Following the fallen leaves

That drift along the water

I can hardly recognize

What I am on the inside

 

You could stay but I don’t care

Enough for anything in this life

These days I’m unaware of what

Is really deep inside

 

Faded, fallen

I’m engulfed in emotion

Your careless calling

Is alive with devotion

The sudden silence

Deviates from the steady sound

I’m flooded with defiance

As the echo races all around

 

Coming to the edge of the forest

In the deep wood

Looking at the world with a new light

Following the voices

That are drifting through the water

I can hardly recognize

What I am on the inside

 

You could stay but I don’t care

Enough for anything in this life

These days I’m unaware of what

Is really deep inside

A Stream With Bright Fish

(Poseidon and the Wonders of the Deep)

---------------------------------------------------------

Instrumental

***

 

Upon Viridian Waters (The Rapture of Alexis)

---------------------------------------------------------

 

We’ve gone so far beyond emotion

In daylight

Surrounded in my own mind

Against the cold night

***

 

Dark Eyed Sister (Aphrodite's Curse)

---------------------------------------------------------

Instrumental

***

 

High Tide (To Lose and To Be Lost)

---------------------------------------------------------

You run through the forest

Away from it all

You soak in the current

With your back to the wall

You swim through the tides

When the summer calls

You follow the sounds of

The waterfall

 

I follow to the edge

And I fall to the floor

I swim in circles

And I drift evermore

It seems I can’t remember

Who I was before

I’m floating in an ocean

That I can’t explore

 

But I can hang on to the surface

In flowing, oscillated time

My lungs are filling up with water

But I won’t sink to the void

 

I climbed to the top

Of the fiery wall

I swallowed my emotions

And embraced the fall

Exploring through the silence

Of the shadows call

I’m swimming through the current

And I feel it all

 

But I can hang on to the surface

In flowing, oscillated time

My lungs are filling up with water

But I won’t sink to the void

***

 

Lost In The Humming Air (Upon The Winds of Zephyrus)

---------------------------------------------------------

Instrumental

***

 

Beyond The Infinite (Eros' Counsel)

---------------------------------------------------------

Sinking to the floor

I found another life

Waking to the color

Fading I was rusted

Unrecognized

Molded to the others

 

Making a connection

To the other side

Thought I found a lover

Lost into ascension

To my blinded eyes

Calling for another

 

'Let go of your lying eyes

Lying eyes

Let go'

 

Hanging on to someone

That I recognized

Bright beyond the colors

Withered to the marrow

I realized

Nothing like the others

 

Falling through the floor

I came upon your eyes

Thought I found a lover

Searching evermore

I demoralized

Calling for another

 

'Let go of your lying eyes

Your Lying Eyes

Let go' (X)

***

 

Out Of Touch (Searching The Horizon)

---------------------------------------------------------

Midnight coming

I’m farther away than I used to be

Running down these city streets

Where the future beckons to me

We’ve got nothing

Written down in our history

Moving on two hearts agree

But you can call on me

 

On the horizon line

I see the form reflecting in time

In the blue-green light

There’s a movement all around me

 

I feel there’s something

Coming on this sudden breeze

Colors changing on the leaves

The scene’s got nothing on me

Drift from the softness

Drawing out this strange disease

Moving towards the deeper seas

The future’s calling to me

 

On the horizon line

I see the form reflecting in time

In the blue-green light

There’s a movement all around me

***

 

Wake (Swept Out To Sea)

---------------------------------------------------------

Time and again

I’m rushing to the end

I could never really figure you out

And when it comes to this

I’d rather reminisce

‘Cause reality is wearing me down

 

Open up your eyes to the sunlight

Breaking the dawn

When the night draws out

And my hopes are gone

This fire is still burning

Right into my bones

I don’t want to stick around this town anymore

 

The wake you form is surrounding us

The days are gone and we’re starting over

The wake you form is surrounding us

Drowning in the water

Filling me up

 

I open up my lungs

To breath I have begun

As I go between the night and the dawn

I calibrate the sun

And follow everyone

To find I’m barely hanging on

 

Open up your eyes to the summer night

Silent and warm

As the light endures like it did before

These tides are still turning

Right into the shore

I don’t want to stick around this town anymore

 

The wake you form is surrounding us

The days are gone and we’re starting over

The wake you form is surrounding us

Drowning in the water

Filling me up

***

 

Drift (Guided by the Nereids)

---------------------------------------------------------

Hallowed ghost

So suddenly I find

Wandering the night

Growing shadows on the floor

Falling through I have to look inside

Reflected on my eyes

There I see myself before

 

Child in the dark

Grows fond of all illumination

Emanating from the city light

Leading ever on

Towards the outskirts of this city

Where our pasts would reunite

Our pasts would reunite

 

I’m calling out

But I’m too far gone to see you

When the night falls

I drift into the chasm below

I know now

That I am still no different

From anything around me

I still implore

 

Following

The footprints left behind

Trailing through the times

Where we’ve gone through once before

She can open up my eyes

To deeper seas

Of distant memories

That I’m dying to explore

 

Child in the night

Moves forward to a new direction

Moving towards a new and distant light

Leading ever on

Towards the outskirts of this city

Where our pasts would reunite

Our pasts would reunite

***

 

Their Memories (Nerites and Alexis Touch Through Morpheus)

---------------------------------------------------------

Instrumental

***

 

Jungle Floor (The Island of Pan)

---------------------------------------------------------

(as written in The Second Jungle Book...)

 

One moment past our bodies cast

No shadow on the plain;

Now clear and black they stride our track,

And we run home again.

In morning-hush, each rock and bush

Stands hard, and high, and raw:

Then give the Call: "Good rest to all

That keep the Jungle Law!"

 

The dew is dried that drenched our hide,

Or washed about our way;

And where we drank, the puddled bank

Is crisping into clay.

The traitor Dark gives up each mark

Of stretched or hooded claw:

Then hear the Call: "Good rest to all

That keep the Jungle Law!"

***

 

Against The Sky (The Divine Discussion)

---------------------------------------------------------

Instrumental

***

 

Grenada (Nerites' Choices)

---------------------------------------------------------

Open up the doors into my mind

Fill me up with colors

So strong and refined

Go into the place that we call

A paradise

Where everything around you and I

Is alive

 

Falling through the memories to explore

I could not imagine what I was looking for

You, you’re just a presence of something

Before

Never mind the sadness you’re bound to

Adore

 

All again there is nothing wrong

I’m floating in the ocean for days

Hoping to find myself again

So I dive beneath the waves

 

Show me down the path you know is right

Now I’m just a traveler

Who’s lost in the night

I can’t tell the darkness

Apart from the light

Reaching for some substance

With all of my might

 

Running through the memories I explore

Struggling to imagine what I was looking for

Counting all the places where I stood

Before

Til I came upon you as I walked through

The door

 

All again there is nothing wrong

I’m floating in the ocean for days

Hoping to find myself again

So I dive beneath the waves

 

Save me, oh my will

Save me, ever still

Won’t you save me? Oh my will

***

 

Let Me See - Clannad (Alexis' Prayer)

---------------------------------------------------------

Let me see generation times

Will we hear children singing rhymes?

Sweet memories gone by, they're gone by

Let me be wiser with my eyes

Let me see my love by my side

Let me see heaven

 

Lonely years of searching the wilderness

How this world can lead us all astray

Don't let me cry over colourless pictures

No more bitter winds

No more troubled seas

Just forgive me and let me see

 

Let me see my love, let me see

Let me see my love, let me see

 

Let me see generation times

Will we hear children singing rhymes?

Sweet memories gone by, they're gone by

Let me be wiser with my eyes

Let me see my love by my side

Let me see heaven

 

Crossing the room, I recognize the child in me

I'll close my eyes to release away all my fears

We silence the rose to see it blossom back again

Step by step we walk on

Word by word we talk on

Just forgive me and let me see

 

Let me see generation times

Will we hear children singing rhymes?

Sweet memories gone by, they're gone by

Let me be wiser with my eyes

Let me see my love by my side

Let me see heaven

Angel of the Siren - The Cinnamon Chasers (The Calling of the Seashell)

___________________________________

Our dreams are old
Our friends are gone
And our story's been told
Just, carry on

A break in the clouds will guide us home
You look like an angel of the sirens
I, can't believe the wait has been so long

I feel like I've been burning bridges to stay with you
Friends and lovers have come and gone
We have just stood here alone

Although I'm pleased to be beside you
I'm, lonelier than I have ever known
And you look like an angel of the sirens
I can't believe the wait has been so long

 

(The endless calling of the Seashell)

Locust Point – Brothertiger (Alexis’ Eyes are Opened)

---------------------------------------------------------

Inside of my own mind

I feel Him again

I opened up my young eyes

To the water's edge

I climbed up to the branches

To watch the flow

I saw Him, I saw Him far below!

 

So I reached out to the edge there

I felt the flow

I extended my own hand

To gather more

Then I felt the tremor,

I felt it on the inside!

I fell into the rubble

Fell into the daylight

 

But He took me back to the top

And I found myself again!

He took me back to the top

And I found myself whole!

 

I walked through the sun

Toward a voice so far away

In a silent wind

It drifts upon the waves

I reached out to the daylight

That fell upon my face

As I opened up my eyes

To a familiar place!

 

And He took me back to the top

And I found myself again!

He took me back to the top

And I found myself whole!

 

But he took me back to the top

And I found myself again!

He took me back to the top

And I found myself whole! (X)

Still Return (The First Blessing In Faith)

---------------------------------------------------------

(Mysterious and Inspiring Interlude)

 

The Song To The Siren - Celtic Angels (The Sea and the Longing)

___________________________________

Long afloat on shipless oceans
I did all my best to smile
'Til your singing eyes and fingers
Drew me loving to your isle


And you sang
Sail to me
Sail to me
Let me enfold you
Here I am
Here I am
Waiting to hold you

 

Did I dream you dreamed about me?
Were you hare when I was fox?
Now my foolish boat is leaning
Broken lovelorn on your rocks,


For you sing, "Touch me not, touch me not, come back tomorrow:
O my heart, O my heart shies from the sorrow"

 

I am puzzled as the newborn child
I am troubled at the tide:
Should I stand amid the breakers?
Should I lie with death my bride?


Hear me sing, "Swim to me, swim to me, let me enfold you:
Here I am, here I am, waiting to hold you"

Hehehehe. Strange as it may sound, the story was written for the soundtrack. :P John Jagos, the lead singer and performer of Brothertiger was amazed that I could get this from his album. :D
