It Is Time

Life is a flight,
You will rise and fall,
Head to the light,
It is fortune's call,
A flame is burning in your veins,
Go on and try to break the chains.
Back on your feet,
Score your lucky goal,
Feeling the heat
Deep within your soul,
It's time to play another part
And find the answer in your heart.

It is time to live today,
No fear, regret or doubt!
It is like a game you play
When your time is running out,
It is time to act and win,
To create and search for glory,
You are ready to begin
A brand new exciting story.
(It is time)

Once you are brave,
Nothing lets you down,
Life is a wave,
But you'll never drown,
Just feel this moment, it is yours,
Don't waste yourself on plain remorse.
Paint every side
Of your perfect dream,
You can decide
On the color scheme,
Wake up, discover something new
And do what's better just for you.

It is time to live today,
No fear, regret or doubt!
It is like a game you play
When your time is running out,
It is time to act and win,
To create and search for glory,
You are ready to begin
A brand new exciting story.
(It is time)

It's never too late,
To challenge your fate,
Your time has come, it's now.
This life is an art,
You've got to be smart,
You'll do it all somehow.

It is time to live today,
No fear, regret or doubt!
It is like a game you play
When your time is running out,
It is time to act and win,
To create and search for glory,
You are ready to begin
A brand new exciting story.
(It is time)

 

Regret, Regret

We used to be like Rose and Jack -
"You jump, I jump". But after wreck
We both were lucky to survive
And then you left me half-alive.
You left me frozen, all alone
And thought I'd be forever gone.
I'll reach the shore at any cost
And you'll dicover you are lost.

You fall, I fall,
The end is clear,
I couldn't care less, my dear!
I'll watch you drown and soon forget.
You failed me. Now regret, regret.

Alas, romance is not my style.
I'm somewhat wild, I'm volatile.
I was a fool, but now I've grown
To know I'm better on my own.
A man like you would never change,
So you deserve the worst revenge.
You'll call for help, break down and cry,
I'll only laugh and pass you by.

You fall, I fall,
The end is clear,
I couldn't care less, my dear!
I'll watch you drown and soon forget.
You failed me. Now regret, regret.

A man like you would never change,
And though I'm wild and volatile
I can't forgive, I will revenge.
Alas, romance is not my style.

You fall, I fall,
The end is clear,
I couldn't care less, my dear!
I'll watch you drown and soon forget.
You failed me. Now regret, regret.

 

Without You

Tell me, my darling, I need to know
Who your new lover is,
Only be honest before you go,
How could we come to this?
Is he a rich man, a movie star
Or just another guy?
Drunk on your passion, don't get too far,
What if it's all a lie?

I can be better, brighter, braver just for you,
Don't give the world I built for us to someone new.
You left me shattered, empty-hearted, deep in thought,
Would you expain me what I lack and he has got?

It hurts to wake up without you
From pounding heartache,
I keep on thinking about you
And watching my dreams break.
I'm crying as hard as men can cry,
I'm dying to feel your body near,
You need him, it's what I can't deny,
I hate him for stealing all I held so dear.

Maybe I'm crazy, I see your traits
In every stranger's face,
It's an illusion my mind creates
And simply can't erase. 
You were my goddess, my midnight sun,
I was your sword and guard,
Look at the damage that you have done,
You haven't left a shard. 

I can be better, brighter, braver just for you,
Don't give the world I built for us to someone new.
You left me shattered, empty-hearted, deep in thought,
Would you expain me what I lack and he has got?

It hurts to wake up without you
From pounding heartache,
I keep on thinking about you
And watching my dreams break.
I'm crying as hard as men can cry,
I'm dying to feel your body near,
You need him, it's what I can't deny,
I hate him for stealing all I held so dear.

I am not a fortune-teller,
But I see what I can see,
You are not the one for him,
You are not his perfect dream, 
You will find your peace with me.

It hurts to wake up without you
From pounding heartache,
I keep on thinking about you
And watching my dreams break.
I'm crying as hard as men can cry,
I'm dying to feel your body near,
You need him, it's what I can't deny,
I hate him for stealing all I held so dear.

 

Never Forget You

I can swear I'll never forget you
Till all the stars go out,
I can swear I'll never forget you,
I know what love's about.
I can swear I'll never forget you,
Can't get my mind erased,
I can swear I'll never forget you,
Your kiss, your warm embrace.

I can hear your voice that calls me, loud and tender,
I can hear the wind that brought it through the miles.
Now I'm calm, I know you're fine and you remember
Me, my skin, my touch, my scent, my loving eyes.
I will find you soon in spite of all the tortures,
I will pave my way to you, I'll soon return,
As I still believe that love is one true virtue
To belong to us, to save our hearts and burn.

I can swear I'll never forget you
Till all the stars go out,
I can swear I'll never forget you,
I know what love's about.
I can swear I'll never forget you,
Can't get my mind erased,
I can swear I'll never forget you,
Your kiss, your warm embrace.

I will take you home and save your sky from falling,
Love will play its part, the pain will pass us by
And the wheel of time will always keep on rolling,
Like the mighty gods of love we'll never die.
In all corners of the world and through the years
Two united hearts will always feel the same.
I have almost drunk the wine of all my tears,
I'll get back to you, I'm calling out your name.

I can swear I'll never forget you
Till all the stars go out,
I can swear I'll never forget you,
I know what love's about.
I can swear I'll never forget you,
Can't get my mind erased,
I can swear I'll never forget you,
Your kiss, your warm embrace.
