LYRICS

 

01. Eye Of The Storm nach oben

 

The darkest hour of the longest night and you find that you’re standing alone 

with no one to turn to, deserted by those who have promised to stand by your side

The voices inside you get louder and tell you that now is the time you should run

Can you dig deeper and get past your fear and face the storm and the dark head on

 

In the eye of the storm

where the man and the hero are born

In the eye of the storm

And now your darkest hour has come

 

You tell them that you will never surrender, you’d rather choke on your own blood

While they try to persuade you that peace is possible and you should negotiate

Victory or death and annihilation are the only choices you can see

Dunkirk is the never say die situation that proves you are the man they need

 

In the eye of the storm

where the man and the hero are born

In the eye of the storm

And now your darkest hour has come 

 

 

02. Love Will Conquer All nach oben

 

Waking up I’m alone and frightened, you and I may never meet

I won’t touch your hand or walk with you like in my dreams.

Are you just an illusion, is it even possible that someday I could find you

will love conquer all

 

I’m waiting for a message and for pictures of you

Hoping that our connection is real deep and true

not sure you dare to meet me and we live so far apart

in some things we are so different

Will love conquer all

 

Wondering if I should hope or let my dream go

How will I live

Wondering if I should hope or let my dream go

Let go of my fear

 

Waking up now I’m right next to you, every day you are here with me

Walking hand in hand together, just like in our dream

Didn’t think we could really do it, overcome the impossible

Sometimes if you keep believing

Love will conquer all

 

When you know it’s all you’ll ever need

And you just keep trying to believe

Don’t give up however hard you fall

Love will conquer all

 

 

03. 2 AM nach oben

 

I get in from work at 2 AM and sit down with a beer

Turn on late night TV and then I wonder why I’m here

It's meaningless and trivial and it washes over me

And once again I wonder is this all there is for me

 

Here I am again, look at me again

Here I am again on my own

Trying hard to see what there is for me

Here I am again, on my own

 

Life seems so pathetic, I wish I could leave it all behind

This canvas chair, this bed, these walls that fall in on my mind

Hold on for something better that just drags you through the dirt

Do you just let go or carry on and try to take the hurt

 

Here I am again, look at me again

Here I am again on my own

Trying hard to see what there is for me

Here I am again, on my own

 

Alone again, alone again, I’m here on my own

 

 

04. Miracle On The Hudson nach oben

 

On January 15th, two thousand and nine

Two hundred and eight seconds would define Sully’s life

40 years of flying and a million passengers

No signs and no warnings of just what would lay ahead

If he follows all the rules soon they would all be dead

He would never see his daughters he would never see his wife

Taking off from runway four, an ordinary flight

Then birds strike both engines and now Sully's battle begins

 

Cactus 1549 are you there, can you hear me

Can you make it back

Runway thirteen is cleared for you to land, can you make it

Can you make it back

 

There is no airport they can reach and nowhere they can land

At two hundred and forty miles an hour they descend

There is just one option left that our captain can see

A forced water landing, ditch into the Hudson river

 

Cactus 1549 are you there, can you hear me

Can you make it back

Runway thirteen is cleared for you to land, can you make it

Can you make it back

 

A miracle on the Hudson they’re alive

Two engines lost on 1549

155 souls have survived

There’s a miracle on the Hudson, they’re alive

 

The algorithms seem to prove he got the landing wrong

Crash investigators say the evidence is strong

the forced water landing was the worst choice he could make

Sully doubts himself and questions decisions he made

Sleepless nights and recognised everywhere that he goes

Tortured by the feeling that he could have been so wrong

realising what’s missing from the simulations

Thirty five seconds reaction time make it human

 

Cactus 1549 are you there, can you hear me

Can you make it back

Runway thirteen is cleared for you to land, can you make it

Can you make it back

 

A miracle on the Hudson they’re alive

Two engines lost on 1549

155 souls have survived

There’s a miracle on the Hudson, they’re alive

 

 

05. December Wind nach oben

 

As I remember everything, I feel the cold December wind

 

I stand and I look at where I am in my life

The only happiness I have is in these moments right now

Impossible to keep or hold on to

Just here to cherish and let go

When I stood there on that day and said I can’t let go

you said we will go on

as the days revealed the truth we refused to see

truth divided me and you

 

As I remember everything, I feel the cold December wind

 

The snow was deep and on that day it fell as softly as we spoke

About simple promises we made

Making each promise into something to rely on

Would never happen like we thought it would

 

As I remember everything, I feel the cold December wind

When I was losing everything, I felt the cold December wind

 

 

06. We Fell From The Sky nach oben

 

If we could have back all the wasted days

and all the hours that we threw away

would we use them better than before

how could we squeeze from them a little more

 

We fell from the sky

fell to earth you and I

 

Could you let go of what you don’t need

try to survive and live a life that’s real

the life you wanted but could never reach

waiting out there for you, can’t you see

 

We fell from the sky

fell to earth you and I

before we believed all their lies

we believed we could fly, we fell from the sky

 

There is no way for us to go back

We can count on what is here and now

Wings of belief rising up on the wind

Try to believe that we will fly again

 

 

07. The Crimson Tide nach oben

 

Warrior

He learned to fight and to survive

Now he must stir the nation’s pride

Fearing the crimson tide

We shall go on, onto the end fight on the seas

And on the oceans, in the air

Fearing the crimson tide

 

Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror

Victory how ever long and hard the road may be

For without victory there is no survival

 

He has nothing to offer but blood toil tears and sweat

 

Sixth of June, a Tuesday in 1944, allied invasion, overlord

Fearing the crimson tide

a million men, ready to land in Normandy, will it be victory or defeat

fearing the crimson tide

 

We will never surrender, we will never give in

we will fight on the beaches, we will fight in the fields

we will never surrender, we will never give in

we will fight on the streets and fight til the bitter end

 

The shadow of Gallipoli stretches long and turns him cold

The memory, the tragedy, blood red foam on blood red sea

Thousands of brave young men needlessly sacrificed

Dead on a blood soaked beach, here is the crimson tide

 

We will never surrender

we will never give in

we will fight on the beaches,

we will fight in the fields

 

We will never surrender

we will never give in

we will fight on the streets and fight til the bitter end

 

We will never surrender, we will never give in

We will never surrender

 

 

08. The Love Of Your Life nach oben

 

In this world they don’t want you to be different

In this world they don’t want you to be strange

Now I’m telling you that if you feel broken

Let me put you back together again

 

I want you to be my woman, I want you to be my life

I want you to be my dream come true

It’s all about you tonight

 

Oh oh oh

Are you ready for the love of your life

Are you ready for loving tonight

 

You can put me down but I’ll never stay down

You can say that I’m just not right for you

The one and only time that I’m gonna lay down

Is tonight when I lay down next to you

 

I want you to be my woman, I want you to be my life

I want you to be my dream come true

It's all about you tonight

 

Oh oh oh. Are you ready for the love of your life

Are you ready for loving tonight
