Once Upon A Fearytale – Lyrics

Shadows Of Our Yesterdays
Prologue: What will you do if no one hears your screams? What will you do if you don’t wake up from this dream? The spruces stand in silence The oaks don’t say a word knowing the answer that you’ll have never heard “It’s so dark I feel cold Oh, my brother, why can’t we go home? Why is no one here with you and me?” Prechorus: “They stole the sun that guides our way for us, my little sister Now we’re wandering under lightless skies Chorus: We are lost in here Never we’ll find our way home Our way home In a maze of branches, roots and leaves, all alone All alone They broke our trust, lied to us Words turned into transient dust They’re nothing now but shadows of our yesterdays” “Leafless boughs Lifeless wood Brother, yet I haven’t understood why all these breadcrumbs lead to nothingness” Prechorus Chorus “When we’ll have found our way out We’ll remember how they made us bleed A friend in need’s a friend indeed” What will you do if no one hears your screams? What will you do if you don’t wake up from this dream? Chorus 2x Shadows of our yesterdays
Lullaby For The Undead
In a kingdom far away when I was born, a feast was made The wicked fairy cast a spell on me, they had to protect me well Cautiously through the world I went But still, the spindle stung my hand Now, roses and hedges of thorns separate the world of the living from the undead Prechorus: Oh, I feel I’m stuck in between Silently screaming to you I need you to Chorus: Wake me up or let me leave Why am I still sleeping? Wake me up or let me leave Why am I still dreaming? Wake me up or let me leave Why am I still sleeping? Wake me up or let me leave Why am I still dreaming? You promised to find me here Yet, I have been waiting for years wandering, lingering in loneliness, waiting for your releasing kiss So when – at last – you’re here make my suffering disappear If I can’t live, then let me die and sing me my last lullaby Prechorus: For so long, I’ve been stuck in between Silently screaming to you I need you to Chorus I’m undead I’m undead Chorus Wake me up or let me leave
Sheherazade
Shahryār, the great king, had a wife who served not him Oh, unfaithful was her mind The Persian king had been betrayed and his heart, it fell apart into a thousand pieces forevermore Prechorus: “From now on bring me a bride for one day and one night and when the sun begins to rise: Come what may, take her life away Let me see how she dies 'cause Chorus: No love is left in me Now for eternity Only their company will fill my emptiness inside” Suddenly, a woman came to put an end to Shahryār’s pain Sheherazade was her name In one thousand and one nights his heart’s one thousand pieces could find to each other by her tales Prechorus: “From now on stay by my side for another day and another night and when the sun begins to rise: Come what may, don’t go away Tell me stories with which time flies 'cause only Chorus 2x: You give love to me Now for eternity Only your company will fill my emptiness inside Sheherazade, my shining light Sheherazade, you shine so bright” “I’m here I’ll be with you for another one thousand and one nights” ألف ليلة وليلة (1001 nights)
Mirror On The Wall
Be blessed, dear huntsman You know me well The king chose me and I became his new queen In my new kingdom, peasants and noblemen know of my beauty that no one ever will reach Prechorus: Yet there’s someone that tries to outdo me Chorus: Her hair as dark as ebony, her lips as red as blood and her skin as pale as winter’s snow that lay here seven years ago But, in the mirror, all I’ll see is my reflection, only me! I am the fairest – she can’t stay I will destroy what’s in my way! You see, dear huntsman: I need your help Only her death is (to my immortal beauty) the key Deep in the forest where daylight’s never seen Follow her! Get her! Kill her! Don’t let her flee! Prechorus: Then bring me her lungs and bring me her liver Chorus 2x Mirror, mirror on the wall Who’s the fairest one of all? Mirror, mirror on the wall Who’s the fairest of them all? Chorus 2x: Her hair as dark as ebony, her lips as red as blood and her skin as pale as winter’s snow that lay here seven years ago Still, in the mirror, all I see is her reflection, never me! I am the fairest – she can’t stay I will destroy what’s in my way! Oh, Snow White, into the apple you shall bite I wish you a bittersweet goodnight
Hamelin
Once upon a time, in a town called Hamelin, uninvited guests appeared and took the people’s bread A plague it was soon called in the town of Hamelin Then a wondrous man claimed he could release them and they said: Prechorus: “Help us, our town is suffering, behold! Your reward will be a bag full of gold!” He listened and saw the fear in their eyes and his pipe sang: Chorus: “Come follow me Into the river I’ll lead ye My melody will soon free Hamelin of all ye rats, oh Come follow me” Out of every corner they came in Hamelin One after another the flood took them away Prechorus Chorus “Away, you rat-catcher No penny we’ll give to you!” “You’ll regret that you broke your word ... Chorus: Come follow me Into the mountain I’ll lead ye My melody Will soon free Hamelin of all ye children Come follow me My song will guide you into the darkness Come follow me into the dark”
