Delain Stardust

Dreamscape in a blanket silver grey

Homesick for a memory washed away

All light in hollow eyes is stardust

(stardust)

Once you learned there is no return to lies

Haven’t cried as we left the earth to die

Homesick for a memory in silencing eternally

[Chorus 2x:]

Bring me to life

Bring me the starlight

Bring me the sun and moon

Release this star tonight

Far away in a distant memory

There is lush

There is beat in you and me

Now all blood in a hollow heart is stardust

Washed away

Like your face drawn in the sand

At the edge of the sea is how we end

Painful is the memory

We did it to ourselves !

Awaken me

Bring back my heartbeat

Bring back the warmth of skin

The world we’re living in

[Chorus]

Bring me to life

(Dreamscape into grey)

Bring me the starlight

(Homesick, all washed away)

Bring me the sun and moon

Release this star tonight

[Interlude]

[Chorus]

Bring me to life

(Dreamscape into grey)

Bring me the starlight

(Homesick, all washed away)

Bring me the sun and moon

Release this star tonight

Delain Invidia

My achievements seem so humble

While you’re making wine from water

While my hands work the cold soil

All you touch turns into gold

And I don’t want to be like you

I don’t want to be like you

It seems like you outrun me every time

I want to be you

Why can’t I erase you from my mind

I don’t want to be like you

It seems like you outrun me every time

I want to be you

Why can’t I erase you from my mind

All the heroes in the gutter

Finally get their ever after

As they lay their final glance

Upon your ever shining armor

And I don’t want to be like you

I don’t want to be like you

It seems like you outrun me every time

I want to be you

Why can’t I erase you from my mind

I don’t want to be like you

It seems like you outrun me every time

I want to be you

Why can’t I erase you from my mind

Looking from a distance

The difference seems so small

Has the grass been greener

On the other side at all?

I don’t want to be like you

It seems like you outrun me every time

I want to be you

Why can’t I erase you from my mind

I don’t want to be like you

It seems like you outrun me every time

I want to be you

Why can’t I erase you from my mind

Delain Collars And Suits

Trying so hard to get by

To be the next big thing alive

But all the same

Every color I see, a pale shade of grey

Trying so hard and they say

“You’re just a signature away

Just one handshake”

Well here’s to collars and suits

And things that they say

“Once more it’s your chance, just take it

Once more, don’t be so blind

For all I care you fake it

It’s your chance to shine”

And it’s all

All that I dream of

There’s nothing I want more

There’s nothing I would trade it for

All I dream of

(My mistake if I’m not taking it)

It’s all I really want

(All at stake if I’m not making it)

There’s nothing I want more

My big break if I’m not braking it)

There’s nothing else

(My problem if I can’t take it)

It’s my problem if I can’t take it

Why would we change our own game

These are the rules by which we play

I’ve heard it all before

“Try to make up your mind

And make up your face”

I don’t believe in a way

To skip a chapter and be great

There’s no such thing

Where all traumas and flaws are gently erased

Here’s to the collars and suits

And the things they say

You’ve got bring something better to the

Table to tempt me

Here’s to the collars and suits

And the things they say

Better put your money where your mouth is

Delain Lullaby

We are sinking this ship now

By midnight hour

How long can you hold your breath?

To the sirens who sing to

the broken hearts

We are humming the same tune

Goodbye my lullaby

Under water reflected

flashes of life

Floating up from your lungs, your lips

When you decided to sail to

The other side

You decided to sink too

Goodbye my lullaby

I will miss you

Delain Pendulum

Time’s moving onwards

Pushing and pulling me

Offering no release

Where do we go now

Why can’t we pause and stay

I’m hanging on the

Pendulum below the clock

Please swing slower, make it stop

Can we end the endings?

Can we make believe it will last forever?

I don’t mind pretending

Still you push me

Still you push me

Faster

Time’s moving onwards

Turning the night to day

I’m jumping on the brakes

Where does this thing go

Why can’t we pause and stay

I’m just afraid to

Realise as I look up

Who’s getting off at the next stop

Can we end the endings?

Can we make believe it will last forever?

I don’t mind pretending

Still you push me

And the endings

Now

Can we end the endings?

Can we make believe it will last forever?

I don’t mind pretending

Still you push me

Still you push me

Faster

Faster

Faster

Faster

Delain Such A Shame

Such a shame

to believe in escape.

‘A life on every face’

But that’s a change,

until I’m finally left with an ‘8’.

Tell me to relax – I just stare.

Maybe I don’t know

if I should change

a feeling that we share.

It’s a shame

(such a shame)

Number me with rage

It’s a shame (such a shame)

Number me in haste (such a shame)

This eagerness to change

It’s a shame

The dice decide my fate

that’s a shame (that’s a shame)

In these trembling hands my faith

tells me to react

“I don’t care”

Maybe it’s unkind if I should change

a feeling that we share.

It’s a shame

(such a shame)

Number me with rage…

Such a shame

(Number me with the rage)

Such a shame

(Write across my name)

It’s a shame (such a shame)

Number me with rage

It’s a shame (such a shame)

Number me in haste (such a shame)

This eagerness to change

Such a shame

Delain The Gathering

[Intro:]

The song that angels sing

The spell that calls, The Gathering

The magic that might bring

Eternal life, The Gathering

I see a world in anger

i see a world in pain

Each day a different story

But still the message is the same

Hard news I set beside me

Sweet dreams is what I need

What daylight wants to show me

At night, appears to be insane

May I ask you in?

Shall I…

Shall I persuade you?

[Chorus:]

The song that angels sing

The spell that calls, The Gathering

The magic that might bring

Eternal life, The Gathering

My cards, the ones to choose from

The role they play tonight

Which ones embrace the loved ones?

Which ones will summon for a fight

Show me your precious darlings

And I will crush them all

Wave with your blooded sword and

I’ll kiss to show I’m not afraid

May I ask you in?

Shall I…

Shall I persuade you?

[Chorus]

Delain Mother Machine

Incomplete, cast in the concrete

walk the city streets

granite sky

My machine built the factories

feeds the worker bees

get in line

Round and round and round

the wheels come down

Dreaming of the steam

the pounding sounds

Round and round and round

the wheels come down

Won’t you electrify my soul

intensify it all

Little girl in a concrete world

artificial hurt

in your eyes

You won’t see any living trees

any flower fields in my time

Round and round and round

the wheels come down

Dreaming of the steam

the pounding sounds

Round and round and round

the wheels come down

Won’t you electrify my soul

intensify it all

I like the plastic people paper world

The silver moon, the iron sun

I’ll fold you paper flowers little girl

for you’ll never see a real one

Round and round…

Delain Shattered

Engaged in a memory

Engaged in a prison of guilt

Surrounded by reproach

And everybody knows

[Chorus:]

She flies over town in white shades

But you’re left behind

With a thousand troubled minds

You cannot speak; you’re blinded by your grief

She flies over town in white shades

And guides every step

But still you feel alone

Cause angels don’t come home

As the sky is clearing

You clear your mind

Hide all mirrors not to see

What the morphine couldn’t hide

Shattered faces on the floor

Your broken mask serves you no more

[Chorus 2x]

Delain Breathe On Me

A stranger’s face that I have never seen

but on photographs

but on tv screens

Your songs of romance ringing in my ear

you are all I see

You are all I hear

Your eyes met mine

Just one split second and I knew tonight

Yes you can be my solitary man

I’ll be your girl named Joy

Yes I’ll be all you need and more

Breathe on me, breathe on me

Light my way, bring me back to life

Breathe on me, breathe on me

Fill me up, make me feel alive

My heart is black my soul is bleeding

Give me something to believe in

Breathe on me

Tonight

Trying to stay cool as I’m approaching you

hitching up my skirt

as I start to flirt

My nervous is breathing when I’m close to you

I can’t help but being

breathless over you

Who needs the stars

You are my only star tonight

Who needs the moon

When you are my loverman

Until the bitter end

I’ll do all I can and more

And call me the wild rose
