EVERGREY LYRICS

1. Distance


It's lost but we'll find it again
We must try even if it's a distance future
It was all in in our hands to the ends
I just wish we had known so much sooner

It's not over
We'll soon be closer than before
Can't let this distance
Keep our destined souls apart

There's so much I would have shared if I could
But my reaching was not getting through to you
So many times when I was misunderstood
I just wish we had spoken so much sooner

It's not over
We'll soon be closer than before
Can't let this distance
Keep our destined souls apart

[Solo: Danhage]
[Solo: Englund]

We were caught in a swirl of a devious tide
Where I wish I could have guided us through the nocturnal
And I would have ran with you towards the light
Instead I was drawn further and further away

It's not over...


2. Passing Through


Ten years from now I'll watch from far away
Ten years from now I might have found my way
Ten years from now I'll see through different eyes
Better, wiser and not as blind

Always looked for acceptance
And understood what it's like to be different
Did not believe in transcendence
This life gave birth to independence

Does no one see it like I do?
Does no one know that we're just passing through?
No one feel what I do?
We're passing through

These silhouettes remain, they're not the sum of me
No longer represent who I used to be
They just remind me of where I used to wake
How I used to think, how I used to ache

Ten years from now I'll watch from far away
Ten years from now I should have found my way
Ten years from now I'll see through different eyes
Better, wiser and not as blind

Does no one see it like I do?
Does no one know that we're just passing through?
No one feel what I do?
That we're just passing through

I always looked for acceptance
I understood what it's like to be different
Did not believe in transcendence
Just independence

Does no one see it like I do?
Does no one know that we're just passing through?
No one feel what I do?
That we're just passing through

Does no one see it like I do?
Does no one know that we're just passing through?
No one feel what I do?
We're passing through


3. Someday


I was once like you
Used to be like you
Embraced the same horizons
And shared the setting suns

I was once like you
But the surroundings are different
Now the darkness is different
I used to be like you

But if I can't erase you
If I can't face this alone
I might be there one day

Someday, someday
With arms wide open
Someday, someday
With arms wide open

The universe is now a darkened room
And even still nothing's starlit
I'm here alone, all is this void
It's devastating
I feel like I have lost my armor
I feel like I have lost my armor

Someday, someday
With arms wide open
Someday, someday
With arms wide open

With my arms wide open
With my arms wide open

So I can't just erase you
Can't do this alone
I'll be there that day

Someday, someday
With my arms wide open
Someday, someday
With my arms wide open

Someday, someday
Someday, someday


4. Astray


This is not for me
I can't persist or breathe
That which poisons me
My angels are falling and I lie bare
Felled by the arrows of a different calling
Urging me to look
Look the other way
Faith's amiss and I'm astray
This was never meant for me
So why would I stay?

The winter
Once brought me this sorrow
Since everything seems to hurt
Just let me go

Got doubts enough to fill
An emptiness, a void
I'm on the other side of life
Where I don't belong
I threw myself in heaven's arms
Wore my open wounds to see
You swore yourself to me
So join my hands in search of truth
Please take the giant leap with me
This world is not for me
So why should I stay?

The winter
Once brought me this sorrow
Since everything seems to hurt
Just let me go
I used to be stronger
I used to want this more
Is everything meant to hurt?
It won't leave me alone

[Solo: Danhage]

Layer after layer
I need to keep this hidden
Brick after brick
Buries it deeper and deeper
Leave it in the cold
To be forgotten to grow old

The winter
Once brought me this sorrow
Since everything seems to hurt
Just let me go
I used to be stronger
I used to want this more
Is everything meant to hurt?
Just let me go


5. The Impossible


I'll cross the dark side of the moon
I'll do the same with the rings of Saturn
I'll stay awake through the Martian winter
But in the end what does it matter?

And I'll look to the sky for any signs to justify
Or offer reasons why
There can't be a 'you and I'

I am watching from the outside
Dying to be on the inside
It is cold here it is freezing
While you're asking the impossible
Because it is impossible to be this alone
To be this alone

I cross the dark side of the moon
And cross my heart and hope for this madness
To end very soon before I drown in a sea of sadness

And I'm watching from the outside
Dying to be on the inside
And I'm watching from the outside
When I'm longing to be on the inside
And you're asking the impossible
If you want me this alone
Alone ...


6. My Allied Ocean


This is for us
I'm fear I'm flight
In darkened waters we must unite
My allied ocean, my queen, my death
A sun explosion
It manifests

When darkness is falling
Want the world to burn
The fire to spread and there's nowhere to turn
At the end of the rope
I can't hold on
Want this world to burn
Want this world to burn

This emptiness not transient
And it will never stop
It's never silent
My allied ocean
My life escape
A sun I saw but never felt

[Solo: Danhage]

When darkness is falling
Want the world to burn
The fire to spread and there's nowhere to turn
At the end of the rope
I can't hold on
Want this world to burn
Want this world to burn

When darkness is falling
Want the world to burn
The fire to spread and there's no one to turn to
At the end of the rope
I can't hold on
Want this world to burn
Want this world to burn


7. In Orbit


I'm caught here in this vacuum
I'm falling from a sunless sky
I'll rid myself of value
And leave this emptiness behind

So I run before it's over
I run but still never leave it seems
Run but not getting closer
I run to get away from this dream

I have been watching you from a distance
I have been monitoring you from cloudless skies
I've been calling your name just to ease your resistance
But nothing seems to shift your darkened sky

Run before it's over
Run but still never leave it seems
Run but not getting closer
I run to get away from this dream

I'm in orbit
Stars exploding when I call your name
Here's too dark and lonely
You're my compass
My only reason to stay sane

[Solo: Danhage]
[Solo: Englund]

Run before it's over
Run but still never leave it seems
Run but not getting closer
And I run, to get away from this dream

Run but not getting closer
Run but still never leave it seems
Run!


8. The Lonely Monarch


I dwell in your shadow
I dare not wake what's asleep
I grew in your shadow
I never defied the resting beast
But when you dress in your black wings again
When you turn your back on me again
Still not denying you
Still not denying you

I've tried a thousand times
And bowed a thousand more
And I fought through eternal nights
To keep us from falling
It's written across the sky
It offers clarity
It is not you, it's only me
Who keeps us from falling down

I always felt a burden
It was always hard
Always felt uncertain
You never meant no harm
Raise that head again
Wake that will again
Solution could be tranquil
And absolution so close
Don't fear to turn inside
Leave that path behind
Cross the inner lines
Change your ways to end
Where are your reasons to extend
The lonely monarch's war again?

I've tried a thousand times
And bowed a thousand more
I fought through eternal nights
To keep us from falling
It's written across the sky
It offers clarity
It is not you, it's only me
Who keeps us from falling

[Solo: Danhage]
[Solo: Englund]

I've tried a thousand times
And bowed a thousand more
I fought through eternal nights
To keep us from falling
It's written across the sky
It's clear for all to see
That it's not you, it's only me
Who keeps us from falling down
Who keeps us from falling
Who keeps us from falling down


9. The Paradox Of The Flame


So there you are
I have been searching for so long
And here you are
Feels like a trick on my senses
How I wish for you to carry me
Far away from harm And to ensure that all
All we left is still buried deep
So that our hearts will endure

So here we are
I understand our intentions are different
It's no one's fault
But there are light years in between us

How I wish that we'd still feel the same
That we did never change and that we'd share tomorrow
No time enough to mend our ways
Without our hearts being torn

I begged until my knees were sore
I tried so much more than you
You never heard my words and i felt I was never enough for you
And here we stand heartbroken now
We lost our way, lost somehow
And there is no hate, I might still love
The paradox of the flame


10. Disconnect


Gone
She's gone
How am I suppose to make it alone?
Don't leave this
Don't leave me
I'll disconnect
Before it takes me over
I undress and fall
Wish to leave it all
I disconnect
Before it takes me over

Is this, if this is all I have now
then I, then I need to disconnect now
I never meant to be indifferent
Never wanted you to feel irrelevant
You were
You were never insignificant

So don't leave this
Don't leave me
I'll disconnect
Before it takes me over
I undress and fall
Wish to leave it all
I disconnect
Before it takes me over

[Solo: Englund]
[Solo: Danhage]

Don't leave this
Don't leave me ...


11. The Storm Within


It is dark I can hear the crows
And the autumn leaves falls and falls
Trees asleep still stretch for the sky
They belong to me
They stretch for us you see

If all were just dreams we'd be safe
But we're all just pale prints of passed days
The consequence and the cause
The reasons of why we did lose

It is late when I watch the sun hide
Hide behind the dark mountainside
Taste the salt that lands on my skin
There's not a sound just the storm within

You tore down my walls
You stole my armor
You're under my skin, you conquer you win
My back's in the dust, you triumph you grin
And I know I'd heal better
If I'd surrender to feel

And we wrote life as it passed
As nothing else could matter at all

You made the sun rise
The stars fall and darkness smaller
We walked many days in sorrow
But also in daylight's grace
We gave worth to that which was hollow
Sometimes just two lost souls
And we wrote life as it passed
Much too certain that it'd last forever
We were beyond the difficult


12. Paranoid


Finished with my woman
'Cause she couldn't help me with my mind
People think I am insane
Because I am frowning all the time

All day long I think of things
But nothing seems to satisfy
Think I'll lose my mind
If I don't find something to pacify

Can you help me?
Occupy my brain?
Oh, yeah
Can you help me?
Occupy my brain?
Oh, yeah

I need someone to show me
The things in life that I can't find
I can't see the things that make true happiness
I must be blind

Make a joke, and I will sigh
And you will laugh, and I will cry
Happiness I cannot feel
And love to me is so unreal

Can you help me?
Occupy my brain?
Oh, yeah
Can you help me?
Occupy my brain?

And so as you hear these words
Telling you now of my state
I tell you to enjoy life
I wish I could
But it's too late

Can you help me?
Occupy my brain?
Oh, yeah
So can you help me?
Occupy my brain?
Oh, yeah

So can you help me?
Occupy my brain?
Oh, yeah
