Albums: Paradise Lost (2007)

In the cold misty morning
Gleaming rays awake the dawn
Here I stand, a stranger in this land
Does your conscience betray you?
Falling from grace, feel the sun on my face
Does desire still hold true?

Mystified by her beauty, does the hunter pity his prey?
Under starless skies all love must die and fade away

Take my hand, divine or damned
Make a stand, seize the day
Yours or mine, damned or divine
Draw the line, come what may

Looking down from ethereal skies
Silent crystalline tears I cry
For all must say their last goodbye
To paradise

My yearning is silenced by angelic skin of white?
Love conquers all though heavens fall this fateful night

Oh

Yours or mine, damned or divine
Draw the line, serpentine

Love is a tragedy
All that I have, all that I'll ever need is right here inside
Let the winds of freedom be my guide

Looking down from ethereal skies
Silent crystalline tears I cry
For all must say their last goodbye
To paradise

Looking down from ethereal skies
Silent crystalline tears I cry
For all must say their last goodbye
To paradise

Say goodbye, goodbye
Oh oh

[vocal break]

So I've cheated, and I've lied
Been the victim of foolish pride
And I've begged, and I've crawled
And I've battled it and bled for it all
So I'll savor the downfall
Of paradise

Looking down from ethereal skies
Silent crystalline tears I cry
For all must say their last goodbye
To paradise

Looking down from ethereal skies (Looking down from ethereal skies)
Silent crystalline tears I cry (Oh, I cry)
For all must say their last goodbye
To paradise (All will say their last good bye)

Looking down from ethereal skies (Looking down)
Silent crystalline tears I cry (crystalline tears)
For all must say their last goodbye
