Track Name: Hero
Hey, you're the hero
Won't you sing me a song from the glorious days
Sing hey, you're the hero
Won't you bring me the light of the past

I carry on trying to make it through another day
Still going strong with the memories from yesterday
I never thought I'd meet you one day
But now you are here by my side

And hey, you're the hero
Won't you sing me a song from the glorious days
Sing hey, you're the hero
Won't you bring me the light of the past

I carry on trying to make it through another night
Still going strong with the fading stars all shining bright
I never thought I'd meet you again
But now you are here by my side

And hey, you're the hero
Won't you sing me a song from the glorious days
Sing hey, you're the hero
Won't you bring me the light of the past

To hear your voice so clear sends shivers down my spine
I feel like diving into a dream
And all the words you sing sound like shadows lost in time
They seem like a vision of beauty to me

Hey hey hey, you're the hero
Won't you sing me a song from the glorious days
Sing hey, you're the hero
Won't you bring me the light of the past
Hey hey hey, you're the hero
Won't you sing me a song from the glorious days
Sing hey, you're the hero
Won't you bring me the light of the past
Light of the past
Track Name: Green Man
I can hear the crying
I can feel the dying
I can sense the pain you feel inside
Keeper of the forest
Guardian of the trees
When will you be down and lie there bleeding?

Your loved Goddess was scared away
A new tyrant bids to creep
Forlorn fight comes to an end
Megalomania of men

You where shelter once
Gave us warmth and strength
But we feared to be dependent
So we cut you down
Shed our sibling's blood
What odd sense of liberty

I can hear the crying
I can feel the dying
I can sense the pain you feel inside
Keeper of the forest
Guardian of the trees
When will you be down and lie there bleeding?

Acid rain burns all woods pale
Poisoned waters soak the ground
We unlocked Pandora's box
What will outlive human race?

Patience you have shown
Shown a mother's love
For all humans are your children
But I fear we need
Someone to stop us
For we won't make it ourselves

I still can hear the crying
Still I feel the dying
I sense all your pain like it was mine
Keeper of the forest
Guardian of the trees
Tell us what to do to stop this madness!
Track Name: Wings of Fire
I can feel there's a longing in my heart now
I can feel there's a riddle in the air
I can feel there's a shadow in the dark that stares
There's a shadow in the dark
I can see there's a flicker in the glow now
I can see there's a little more to say
I can see there is only one way to go
There is only one way to go
There is only one way

Rise up to the sky
On wings of fire you will fly
Rise up to the sky
Let them hear your freedom cry
And leave everything behind

I can see there's a new horizon
I can feel your hand in mine
You set my heart and my wings on fire
As we soar into the sky

We will fly to the land beyond the rainbow
We will fly over mountains high and low
We will fly because that's the only way to go
'Cause that's the only way to go
Yeah, that's the only way

Rise up to the sky
On wings of fire you will fly
Rise up to the sky
You can make it if you try
Rise up to the sky
On wings of fire you will fly
Rise up to the sky
Let them hear your freedom cry
And leave everything behind
Track Name: Phoenix
I have been hurt
I have been bruised
I have been beaten
I shift into the shades
Slip between the days
Arise from the ashes th walk tall
I've been newborn
Pourin' rain in me and outside
Born through this war
Burning and tearing up my life

I curse the world
I lost all to
And go to build my own
No use to talk
Just pain and steel
Speak through a whirling sword
I walk the nights
To light fires with my spark
A lonely fight
For my sisters in the dark

A light will come through
Tear off the dawn
Tears of a shadow out of fearful hearts
I will raise a pyre
A flame in the sky
Like a Phoenix out of ashes I will arise

Flickering lights, streams running past me
Washing away all I have known and I have loved
Flickering lights, streams running past me
Washing away the blood sticking to my hands
Shimmering blades, bridges collapsing behind me
My lonely road leading me into shifting mists
Behind the horizon shines a light
A light for me
Shines a light
A light for me
A light for me
Track Name: Never Look Back
I see the rising of the sun in the east
A golden new day has just begun
Mists dissolve in the air, leave the sky blue and clear
The sun shines warm onto my skin
This is the perfect day

The journey's gonna start now or never
The land lies inviting in front of me
The wind in the grass it whispers to me
telling me about distant lands

Never look back
Just go ahead
Into the light with open eyes
And leave everything behind
Yes, leave everything behind
Go into the light with open eyes

The air is grabbing my wide dragon wings
And they carry me up so high
The world shrinks beneath me, vanishes slowly
The sun shines warm onto my skin
This is the perfect day

The journey's going to start now or never
The skies lie inviting in front of me
The wind in my ears it whispers to me
Telling me about distant lands

Never look back
Just go ahead
Into the light with open eyes
And leave everything behind
Yes, leave everything behind
Go into the light with open eyes

Real friends won't hold you back
Cause you are the wanderer
Wild and excited, unsteady and free

Never look back
Just go ahead
Into the light with open eyes
And leave everything behind
Yes, leave everything behind
Oh, leave everything behind
Yes, leave everything behind
Oh, leave everything behind
Yes, leave everything behind
Go into the light with open eyes

I am the sister of the wind
I follow the call deep inside my heart
