sun is rising, it’s shining bright the light will guide me through my life mmhmm, the journey now begins it’s dark outside and I’m afraid to lose what I can’t reach give me shelter, warm my heart oh what will become of me what has life set out for me who will I grow up to be it’s only a childhood dream embrace me in the night forever hold me close I see myself when I look at you now I’m slowly growing older life will take its course your moonlit eyes are magic in the night oh what will become of me what has life set out for me who will I grow up to be it’s only a childhood dream only in my dreams the world seems to be alright

take my hand and follow me to this place of pure serenity embrace me and dream with me night turns into day and my eyes are open wide but still I can’t see I’m learning to live To me you are the sun A light of love unsung A Venus rising out of sea just an angel out of heaven is what you are to me your wings embrace my heart keep it innocent and pure To me you are the sun A light of love unsung A Venus rising out of sea To me you are the moon Oh heaven’s coming soon A Venus rising out of sea no I can’t say to you so far and out of reach come closer hold me tight and never let me go To me you are the sun A light of love unsung A Venus rising out of sea To me you are the moon Oh heaven’s coming soon A Venus rising out of sea

all alone left in the dark where shadows move around I fear to step into the light to bring out what they hide oh yes it’s strange to know what secret lies in me I want to know just where you are I want to see your eyes Stranger reveal yourself ‘cause you’re a part of me Stranger now show yourself So I can call you I’m tired to move in shadows I’m tired of living lies all I want is peace of mind and that’s what I will find but now that time moves on and I grow up my questions hunt me down no far and I’ll prevail Stranger reveal yourself ‘cause you’re a part of me Stranger now show yourself So I can call you….daddy my quest is you to find Stranger reveal yourself ‘cause you’re a part of me Stranger now show yourself So I can call you Stranger reveal yourself You’re a part of me Stranger I want to call you daddy

our love would last forever that’s what you said from here there’s no return you promised me heaven but soon I would learn the dream already ended before it began we both believed in love but that wasn’t enough sometimes life can be rough nothing lasts forever where has our love gone where did we go wrong How many miles Is the way to your heart How many miles Did we drift apart How many miles Is the way to your heart years pass by as time grows old seasons come and go I whisper your name like a gentle breeze never thought that losing you could hurt me so deep How many miles Is the way to your heart How many miles Did we drift apart How many miles Is the way to your heart all those sweet memories are cut deep in my soul How many miles Is the way to your heart How many miles Did we drift apart How many miles Is the way to your heart the dream already ended

a web of deceit around me and I doubt if I’ll survive if truth should win in the end oh that day had better be near and I hate the lies, the dirty schemes and the endless twists of words and I, I hate the circumstance I’m in but it’s not the end of the world are you better than, better than me ? but I won’t back down on this sure the truth is at my side no matter what they think of me I am standing tall with pride trying hard to build this case sticking to my faith it ain’t over till it’s over and I’ll never break I am better than, better than you ! what are you thinking he’s soft, so push him over what are you wishing for let the old days come again what are you dreaming living with the riches but if ever there is justice the hammer falls on you I am better than, better than you ! I know you don’t believe it’s true Oh no, better than you ! I don’t believe it’s true

there are those days that slap you in the face all those shameless lies that will trouble you there’s a man again trying to take you down you refuse to be his clown but it’s getting hard to keep it all inside you keep in mind you’ll learn from the pain all that hurt and anger will not be in vain though accident prone you won’t be taken down rise to the occasion with a grin and a frown just keep it all inside if you’re a rebel without a cause there’s no coincidence you just haven’t found what you’re looking for if you’re a saint without a sin there is no destiny you just didn’t look for the next metaphor mama always said you’ll learn from the pain all that hurt and anger will not be in vain though accident prone you won’t be taken down rise to the occasion give a piece of your mind don’t keep it all inside

so darkness fills the night wind strikes my soul can you feel what I feel this storm raging within I have to face it all alone no one can help me now chance will change my faith the final hour’s at hand Hear the storm haul at night Sets me in a state of fright Run to the light Now the storm’s rages on living life in the fast lane losing all track of reality was all I did in vain? am I losing my sanity somehow I've always known life's but an empty shell consuming dreams and memories my nightmare keeps going on Hear the storm haul at night Sets me in a state of fright Run to the light Now the storm’s rages on Silence!…. the dream you dream will fade face the storm so deep inside the one that never dies Hear the storm haul at night Sets me in a state of fright Run to the light Now the storm’s rages on

as I awaken from the darkest of dreams no demons that haunt me in the night as I awaken from the darkest of fear I will step into the light as long as I remember they’ve been watching all along now’s the time to be me to know where I belong I am I and who are you I am I oh who are you try to draw the lines to connect me with my dreams find the colors deep inside that give me peace of mind see the ink so dark and cool draw the fool I never knew this feeling coming over me really gives me peace of mind I am I and who are you I am I oh who are you as darkness is falling over me a light is shining bright for me no longer strapped in boundaries I spread my wings and fly out to the sea I am I and who are you I am I oh who are you

there’s so many shades of blue getting wet in the water I can get relief deep under the surface when the sun shines on the reef there’s a lot of vivid color I know and belief it’s a wondrous world I just wanna get wet swim with the fish I just wanna dive with a dolphin there’s so many forms of life scuba in the seven seas I forget mischief when under the waterline with the sun over the beach the white sand and the coral I know and belief it’s a great world I just wanna get wet swim with the fish I just wanna dive with a dolphin I just wanna get set go to the deep I just wanna dive with a dolphin when it feels like going down I get the urge to submerge go swim in the ocean when things are not going ‘round I get the urge to submerge go swim in the ocean I just wanna get wet swim with the fish I just wanna dive with a dolphin I just wanna get set go to the deep I just wanna dive with a dolphin

Fly on the wings Watch the world passing by On the wings of the wind Search for the light a dream is just a moment but memories remain all I did see makes me stronger day by day my journey’s just begun don’t ask me to stay Fly on the wings Watch the world passing by On the wings of the wind Search for the light there’s nothing you can’t do no strains to hold you down no place that you can’t be nothing you can’t see hold on to precious goods love, peace and harmony hear them say nothing lasts forever so when love fades away life will go on and dreams they will fade but memories remain Fly on the wings Watch the world passing by On the wings of the wind Search for the light
