Track Name: Unwritten Chapter (live)
unwritten chapter
(24.09.2014)


I’ve been chasing this ghost for so long
I’ve been haunting the night
I’ve been holding on way too tight
I’ve been fighting this fight
it’s been such a long time
since the feeling was right in my reach
and I stumbled away from it
blindly groping for threads of light

now that the wounded are healed
and the treaty is signed (or so they say)
and the vets are returning from the front line,
am I still blind?

when the darkness falls
will you hold me tight
when the silence comes
will you stay by my side
when the countdown ends
will your loyalty abide
when our worlds collide

I was frozen in time just like you
now you’ve melted away
in this liquid and formless state
all identity’s open for debate
it’s been thousands of days
since I last saw things fall into place
a place from where the river springs
where the sun gives shape to your face

now that the bridges are rebuilt
and the fires have died
what about those who fell,
will their final wish be denied?

when these walls collapse
and all the pain is laid bare
when my cover’s blown
will you still be there
when the darkness falls
will your candle still shine
when the silence comes
will your hand be in mine
will you sing for me
will you tell me your story
will you help me believe
it’s alright

you’ve got other seas to flow to
and other cups to pour yourself into
there are harbours waiting for you
my darkness and my silence
may evermore elude you

my unwritten chapter
reeks of mortal danger
looming in the corner
waiting for a stranger
to come to the rescue
but there’s other seas to flow to
when the darkness and the silence overwhelm you
not to worry:
it’s not your fight
not your burden to carry

when the darkness falls
will you hold me tight
when the silence comes
will you stay by my side
when the darkness falls
will your candle still shine
when the silence renders me defenceless

will you be mine?
