ALESANA lyrics - On Frail Wings Of Vanity And Wax

Nero's Decay

Original and similar lyrics
Our empire has fallen The columns came crashing down Faster that children could outrun the shadows Drunk with hysteria the survivors are running for their lives As precious dreams erupt before their very eyes Tonight, it's over At long last we will fall Ruins will fight in our stead My flesh is burning from the embers But still the brilliant tale of our utopia survives Tonight her beautiful exterior may crash and burn to ash But the fight for her honor will rage on I hope I never see the end I hope I never see the end I hope I never have to live without her comfort But for now she dies... Oh Rome! so full of majesty, You're gone... Wind chokes on the ashes as acrid smoke strangles the sun Their jealous arrows ran, hollow drums pound at the gates Breaking the din of screams Our feeble offerings to forgotten Gods are left to rot in temples of their lust As they lay forth their plans to destroy our pride, our home Tonight, it's over At long last we will fall Ruins will fight in our stead My flesh is burning from the embers But still the brilliant tale of our utopia survives Tonight her beautiful exterior may crash and burn to ash But the fight for her honor will rage on I hope I never see the end I hope I never see the end I hope I never have to live without her comfort But for now she dies... Oh Rome! so full of majesty, You're gone... Beg the flames for our mercy These aged walls have seen too much ...Beg the flames for our mercy... To forget the past in the face of this final trial Watch her crumble so true as mayhem cuts her down Let them have our treasure, her voice lives on Let them take our city for her splendor lives on At long last we will fall At long last we will fall At long last we will fall At long last we will fall

You Were Meant For Me

JEWEL "Pieces Of You"
I hear the clock, it's six a.m. I feel so far from where I've been Got my eggs and my pancakes too Got my maple syrup, everything but you. Break the yolks, make a smiley face I kinda like it in my brand new place I wipe the spots off the mirror Don't leave the keys in the door Never put wet towels on the floor anymore' cause Dreams last so long even after you're gone I know you love me And soon you will see You were meant for me And I was meant for you. Called my momma, she was out for a walk Consoled a cup of coffee but it didn't wanna talk Picked up a paper, it was more bad news More hearts being broken or people being used Put on my coat in the pouring rain Saw a movie it just wasn't the same 'Cause it was happy and I was sad It made me miss you oh so bad Dreams last so long Even after you're gone I know you love me And soon you will see You were meant for me And I was meant for you. Go about my business, I'm doin fine Besides, what would I say if U had you on the line Same old story, not much to say Hearts are broken, everyday. Brush my teeth and put the cap back on I know you hate it when I leave the light on I pick a book up. Turn the sheets down. Take a deep breath and a good look around Put on my pj's and hop into bed I'm half alive but I feel mostly dead I try and tell myself it'll be all right I just shouldn't think anymore tonight Dreams last so long Even after you're gone I know you love me And soon you will see You were meant for me And I was meant for you

I'll Be There

JEFFERSON STARSHIP "Love Among The Cannibals"
People need their reasons Reasons to live and reasons to die Just something to believe in Whatever it takes to get through the night When the road just leads to nowhere And your faith can't follow through I'll be there for you, I'll be there for you Black is black and white is white And the blues are sometimes gray When you hurt and you don't know why And your tears won't go away There's a rainbow out there somewhere And one thing is always true I'll be there for you, I'll be there for you I'll be there for you, when hope seems thin and your chances are few I'll be there for you, I'll share the pain and be someone to hold And there's so much more I can do, I'll be there for you We could talk forever There's reasons to stay and reasons to go But while we're here together I might as well make my intentions known There's a light that shines in my window It's a place you can run back to And I'll be there for you, I'll be there for you I'll be there for you, when hope seems thin and your chances are few I'll be there for you, when the outside world turns your inside cold And no one will tell you the truth, I'll be there for you And if the day should come in this lifetime (I will be there) I hope one mornin' you'll wake up to find Anyone with half a heart could see, we might cross this great divide When the road just leads to nowhere And faith can't follow through I'll be there for you, I'll be there for you I'll be there for you, when hope seems thin and your chances are few I'll be there for you, I'll share the pain and be someone to hold There's so much more I can do, so much more Baby I'll be there for you, yes I will, you know that I will be there for you, yes I will, I will be there (I'll be there for you) I will be there (I'll be there for you) (I'll be there for you) Don't you worry baby (I'll be there for you) I will, I will...

Padraic My Prince

BRIGHT EYES
I had a brother once He drowned in a bathtub before he'd ever learned how to talk And I don't know what his name was but my mother does I heard her say it once Padraic my prince, I have all but died From the sheer weight of my shame You cried but no one came And the water filled your tiny lungs Appear, my dear, and cry for me Six years ago today That I laid you in your grave Your sweet young skin was shining then too So tonight to celebrate i will... I will poison myself Another coughing, shaking fit in a bathroom That is spinning And I close the door And I rest my head on the tile floor Sickness and sleep turning me cold I'm still not sure Is there some better place I could be heading towards? Where the selfishly sick and self-absorbed... Are welcome I saw the future once I was drunk in a phone booth My eyes were wet and red But I could not tell what was said And through the screams of the traffic Voices carried Saying I'm sorry On a day so gray it's black inside Watching churches on TV In a coma you don't dream You just hope that someone sits with you Babies turn blue when they're ignored Like the sky on summer days Before you turn and walk away It has changed you So tonight to compensate I will... I will poison myself Another coughing, shaking fit in a bathroom That is spinning

One Will

Halford (Rob Halford) "Crucible"
I see the gods in the arena They stand beneath the blinding lights The roar becomes a deafening silence In reverence before the fight One will live tonight One will die tonight One will stand and One will fall One in victory One in misery Only one will take it all Then all at once begins the rumble A mass of body hits the floor Locked in a battle - strength and honor Blood, sweat and tears becomes the score One will live tonight One will die tonight One will stand and One will fall One in victory One in misery Only one will take it all

The Heart Won't Lie

REBA MCENTIRE
Looking back over the years Of all the things I've always meant to say But the words didn't come easily So many times through empty fears Of all the nights I tried to pick up the phone So scared of who might be answering You try to live your life from day to day But seeing you across the room tonight Just gives me away CHORUS Cause the heart won't lie Sometimes life gets in the way But there's one thing that won't change I know I've tried The heart won't lie You can live your alibi Who can see you're lost inside a foolish disguise The heart won't lie Long after tonight Will you still hear my voice through the radio Old desires make us act carelessly Long after tonight, after the fire After the scattered ashes fly Through the four winds blown and gone Will you come back to me? You try to live your life from day to day But seeing you across the room tonight Just gives me away CHORUS REPEAT
