Song Lyrics



Stories came like the wind

Joining every bridge in the wind

Ringing out footsteps

Calling out stell-heels

I give voice

I give breath

Count out evenings and stars

How fast can these things move on

Taking roots back to yourself

And the reason for fear was moving on

And on

Some time

Great times

Troubled time

Fire for the times

Ringing out footsteps

Calling out steel-heels

Promised land

Great times in commotion

Here come every day

It only lasts an hour

Unhappy the land that has no heroes

No! Unhappy the land that needs heroes

And the reason for fear was moving on

The speed of light was moving on

Don`t cry

Tears are only wasted waters

Some say God her only loves the proud

Be damned on luck

But not dishearted

Nothing to prove

And nothing to present

I give voice

I give breath

Catching winds in my hand

My hand

Some times

Great times

Catching wind in my hand

My hand

Some times

Great times

Troubled times

Fire for the times

Ringing out footsteps

Calling out steel-heels

Promised land

Great times in commotion

Here comes every dat

It only lasts an hour

Unhappy the land that has no heroes

No! Unhappy the land that needs heroes

I`ll call you out

I`ll scream you out

And I don`t care if you`re afraid

When city sounds invade the air

Catch the wind in their hands

Promised land

Catch the wind in their hands

Promised lands

Promised lands

Promised lands
