LyricsEdit

Album VersionEdit

Lost in a dream, finally it seems

Emptiness and everlasting madness


See the sadness grow, watching as we know

Long before our journey for the world


Call for us,

The power in all of us

So far beyond the blackened sky tonight


Glorious

Forever more in us

We are victorious

And so alive


We'll all find our sacrifice tomorrow

Our journey on towards a brighter day

Silent tears we've left behind, still so far away

Across the endless sands, through the fields of our despair

Free for all eternity we stand,

Yeah

Rise above the universe tonight

Starchaser


Fly towards the storm, see the world reborn

Feel the pain inside the voice of sorrow

Cross the distant shores, find the open door

Stand alone in judgment for tomorrow


Years of pain still haunt us all, we saw the last sun rise

Take me home in freedom for a lifetime

Pray now for the silence, and the last tears we'll cry

So glorious, this fire inside, united we stand and


We'll all find our sacrifice tomorrow

Our journey on towards a brighter day

Silent tears we've left behind, still so far away

Across the endless sands, through the fields of our despair

Free for all eternity we stand,

Yeah

Rise above the universe tonight

Starchaser


Free from this world, here for the last time

Oceans collide, inside of us all

Believe who we are, the phoenix will guide us

Freedom will rise once again


Solos: Herman/Sam/Herman/Sam


Save us tonight, the last hope for all of us

Light years gone by, we're still holding on

Save us tonight, a star shines in all of us

Far beyond our lives, still our glory lives on


And we'll all find our sacrifice tomorrow

Our journey on towards a brighter day

Silent tears we've left behind, still so far away

Across the endless sands, through the fields of our despair

Free for all eternity we stand,

Yeah

Rise above the universe tonight

Starchaser


Starchaser


On kingdom come, we stand as one

And we will live for always evermore
