OVER THE HILLS AND FAR AWAY - album
----Over The Hills And Far Away----

They came for him one winter´s night.
Arrested, he was bound.
They said there´d been a robbery,
his pistol had been found.

They marched him to the station house,
he waited for the dawn.
And as they led him to the dock,
he knew that he´d been wronged.
´You stand accused of robbery,´
he heard the bailiff say.
He knew without an alibi,
tomorrow´s light would mourn his freedom.

Over the hills and far away,
for ten long years he´ll count the days.
Over the mountains and the seas,
a prisoner´s life for him there´ll be.

He knew that it would cost him dear,
but yet he dare not say.
Where he had been that fateful night,
a secret it must stay.
He had to fight back tears of rage.
His heart beat like a drum.
For with the wife of his best friend,
he spent his final night of freedom.

Over the hills and far away,
he swears he will return one day.
Far from the mountains and the seas,
back in her arms again he´ll be.
Over the hills and far away.

Over the hills and,
over the hills and,
over the hills and far away.

Each night within his prison cell,
he looks out through the bars.
He reads the letters that she wrote.
One day he´ll know the taste of freedom.

Over the hills and far away,
she prays he will return one day.
As sure as the rivers reach the seas,
back in his arms again she´ll be.

Over the hills and far away,
he swears he will return one day.
Far from the mountains and the seas,
back in her arms again he´ll be.

Over the hills and far away,
she prays he will return one day.
As sure as the rivers reach the sea,
back in her arms is where he´ll be.

Over the hills,
over the hills and far away.

Over the hills,
over the hills and far away.

----10th Man Down----
Today I killed, he was just a boy
Eight before him, I knew them all
In the fields a dying oath:
I´d kill them all to save my own
Cut me free, Bleed with me, Oh no
One by one, We will fall, down down
Pull the plug, End the pain, Run´n fight for life
Hold on tight, this ain´t my fight
Deliver me from this war
It´s not for me it´s because of you
Devil´s instant my eternity
Obey to kill to save yourself
Cut me free...
´I envy the 9 lives that gave me hell
My path made up by their torn bodies
Man to man, soldier to soldier, dust to dust
Call me a coward but I can´t take it anymore´
They wait for me back home
The live with eyes turned away
They were the first ones to see
They are the last ones to bleed
´The ultimate high as all beautiful dies
A ruler´s tool, priest´s excuse, tyrant´s delight...
I alone, the great white hunter
I´ll march till the dawn brings me rest
10th patriot at the gallow´s pole!´
Cut me free...

----Away----
The days were brighter
Gardens more blooming
The nights had more hope
In their silence The wild was calling
Wishes were whispering
The time was there
But without a meaning
Away, away in time
Every dream´s a journey away
Away to a home away from care
Everywhere´s just a journey away
The days departed
Gardens deserted
This frail world
My only rest ?
The wild calls no more
Wishes so hollow
The Barefoot Boy
weeping in an empty night
Away...
Cherish the moment
Tower the skies
Don´t let the dreamer
fade to grey like grass
No falling for life
A gain for every loss
Time gathered me
But kept me flying
´For this gift of dream I must pay the price
with the loss of life´s pleasures´

---Astral Romance----
A nocturnal concerto
Candlelight whispers me where to go
Hymn of gathering stars as my guide
As I wander on this path of the night
Embroidery of the stars
Undress my feelings for this earth
Send me your salva to heal my scars
And let this nakedness me my birth
Macrocosm poured its powers on me
And the hopes of this world I now must leave
The nightwish I sent you centuries ago
Has been heard by those who dwelled in a woe
The distance of our bridal bed
Await for me to be dead
Dust of the galaxies take my hand
Lead me to my beloved´s land
´The constant longing for your touch
This bitter ocean of hatred and pain
This loneliness I need to be who I am´
´The oceans are alone as I
Somebody take away this gift of mine
No charisma for the beast! But still I love you forevermore´
´Come to me
Deliver me from you
And from all the days of the Earth´
No last words to say
Only memories remain
A farewell then, my path goes forever on
