Lyrics from "BEYOND..."

 

DESTROY THE TEMPLE

Destroy the temple
Rebuild it in your heart
Search into your darkness
For another place to start
Take all you need
Forget about the rest
The walls are shaking
Time is running fast

Destroy the temple
Go out in the street
Open your eyes
Get up on your feet
Before tomorrow comes
The walls will tumble down
The whole world will wake up
To that mighty sound 

There's nothing there to find
Don't need much to break
The chains inside your mind
Run fast as you can
Jump outside the fence
Someone's out there waiting
For you to start the dance

Destroy the temple
Rebuild it in your heart
Search into your darkness
For another place to start
Take all you need
Forget about the rest
The walls are shaking
Time is running fast

 

BEYOND THE ROCK OF GIBRALTAR

This holiday is doing me no good
I've had enough of your red wine and your easy food
You sing your lullaby
And you take my will away
There'll be no going back
If I wait another day

I'll wait 'til it gets dark
And I walk to the sea
The ocean is my home
It's the only place for me
I would do anything
I don't mind the danger
To have another story
To tell when I get older

I will sail in loneliness
Far beyond the Isle of Malta
I will sail to the unknown west
Beyond the Rock of Gibraltar

There's something I've been looking for
Beyond the blue horizon
That pulls me far from here
And makes me want to move on
The stars will lead me
To the door of mystery
This time I promise you
I will find the right key

I will sail in loneliness
Far beyond the Isle of Malta
I will sail to the unknown west
Beyond the Rock of Gibraltar

I've lived in luxury before
And I know how it feels
I've dined with kings and queens
But it never kept me still
The poison that you gave me
Couldn't make me blind
I'll escape before tomorrow
And I'll leave this world behind

Cause I've heard the four winds
Sing their love song
I've been to Egypt
I've been to Babylon
I've sailed in company
And I've sailed all alone
I've sailed to run away
And I've sailed back home

I will sail in loneliness
Far beyond the Isle of Malta
I will sail to the unknown west
Beyond the Rock of Gibraltar

I will sail in loneliness
Far beyond the Isle of Malta
I will sail to the unknown west
Beyond the Rock of Gibraltar 

 

MEANT TO BE

You are an island
And I'm a little airplane
And I'm flying all around you
Over your mountains and your plains
And I'm looking for a green strip
Where I can safely land
And I know that I'll find
A welcome field in the end

Cause we are meant to be
We are meant to be...

I look down and all around
I get shivers on my skin
Your beauty fills my eyes
As I nose dive and spin
And my soul gets excited
By your colours and your shapes
So I turn around and circle
For a closer look at your landscape

Cause we are meant to be
We are meant to be...
...just you and me 

I spot a green field
Between the forest and the sea
It's ninety degrees left
And now it's lined up in front of me
The approach is smooth
I just slide down on my wings
Now I'm touching your surface
As I'm facing the wind

Cause we are meant to be
We are meant to be...
...just you and me 

 

THREE MONTHS OF RAIN

It'll take 3 months of rain
To wash this pain from me
It'll take 3 months of rain
To wash this pain from me
That's why I'm sailing
Across the barren sea

The moon stole my secret
And she gave it to the sun
The moon stole my secret
An gave it to the sun
The sun gave it to the wind
And the wind spread it all around

I need short rainy days
And long stormy nights
I need short rainy daysAnd long stormy nights
That's what I need to save my life
And everything will be all right

 

THE POST-WAR FATHER

I come from the time
Of the sirens
The pain, the hunger and fear
I used to run to the shelter
When the war plane
Came dropping bombs here
That was my childhood
And that was my youth
So many stories to tell
All those faces and names
I still can remember them well

And the days run away
And my friends run away
If the night turns to day
I swear I'll find my way
To be free

After five years
the war days went by
No more armies to fight
I found myself
In a city of ruins
I couldn't stand such a sight
I kissed my wife and swore
That no matter
How tough it will be
But I'll give my kids
All the things
That the war
Had taken from me
 
And the days run away
And my friends run away
If the night turns to day
I swear I'll find my way
To be free

I raised five children
And I loved them all
And I know
They loved me as well
I gave them all I could give
More than my words can tell
Now my last-born has gone
He's moved somewhere
Over the sea
He sent me a letter today
Saying I'll always
Carry you with me

And the days run away
And my friends run away
And the days run away
Now my son's gone away
His night shines like day
I know he's found his way
To be free

 

NEW IN THIS WORLD

I was born who knows when
In a town called nowhere
Silence is the song of my past
I got a new ticket for the ride
I got a lifetime on my side
The clock is turning back for me at last

I'm new in this world
I've just found the door
I'm seeing things
For the first time
In this world

I'm new in this world
This life is my reward
I got more riches
Than my hands can hold
I'm new in this world

Everything is unknown
But now all the fear has gone
I look at the morning light
With the eyes of a child
I laced up my shoes
I washed away my blues
The journey will be starting in a while

I'm new in this world
I've just found the door
I'm seeing things
For the first time in this world

I'm new in this world
This life is my reward
I got more riches
Than my hands can hold
I'm new in this world

I was standing still for too long
Now I feel wise and strong
I was closed for repair
But now it's all behind
I can see the way
It's as clear as today
I got new eyes now
I can read the signs

I'm new in this world
I've just found the door
I'm seeing things
For the first time in this world
I'm new in this world
This life is my reward
I got more riches
Than my hands can hold
I'm new in this world

 

THE NIGHT JESUS CAME TO TOWN

The night Jesus came to town
I was a thousand miles away
Searching for something
I was never going to find
In the green fields inside my head
I knew I had to come
So I tried to find my way
I ended up in a dead end street instead

The night Jesus came to town
All my friends got healed
The night Jesus came to town
My fate got sealed

The night Jesus came to town
There was a wall between you and me
Caught between my free fall

And the chains around my neck
I hid my dreams
Where they could not be found
I'm a restless traveller
But when you travel to forget
You always end up getting lost

The night Jesus came to town
I was no longer free
The night Jesus came to town
It was too late for me

The night Jesus came to town
I could not hear the call
I reached too deep
And disappeared into my own mist
Unseen and unremembered
By this world
