Lyrics


The perfect empire

Music by David Merz & Jana Frank
Lyrics by Jana Frank

Fallen, revived – Like a phoenix born in ash
Burning golden – Tasted trouble and pleasure on my flesh

A neverending quest now ended by eternity
The perfect empire crumbled into bliss

Hold on liberty – Hold on happiness
Don‘t hide away from the light
Embrace the fortune, shine in white

A neverending quest now ended by eternity
Just hold on, please go on, liberty
The perfect empire has crumbled into bliss
Oh, hold on
Let‘s count on happiness

Hold on, don’t hide, don’t hide, from the light
Hold on liberty – Hold on happiness
Don‘t hide away from the light

Hold on – A neverending quest now ended by eternity
The perfect empire crumbled into bliss


Sorry

Music by Jana Frank
Lyrics by Jana Frank

Did you think, there was a time you were indifferent to me?
You should know, we were always as close as friends can be
Did you ever think, I was coldblooded, wrong and hard and cruel?
Can’t you see, there never was a reason for me, you fool

Sorry, I didn’t really wanna hurt you
Sorry, I just wanted a dream come true

Did you feel, how much pain I was able to bear in the past?
How couldn’t you know, I’d be glad to have peace between us – at last
It’s me who’s here, it’s me who’s calling and no response
Can’t you see I’m here,
Don’t you know I care about your needs
Don’t slap my hand away, no!

I can’t believe this happened to us
Don’t let laughter turn into mistrust?
Can’t you see, you’re still in my heart?
I’m afraid! Oh, we’re drifting apart, we’re drifting apart!

You’re not indifferent to me!
You were always as close as a friend can be!
I’m not coldblooded, wrong, hard and cruel! (No, no, no)
I never had a reason to be…
I don’t wanna be a fool!

I can’t believe this happened to us
Don’t let laughter turn into mistrust

I’m sorry, I didn’t really wanna hurt you!


Hope

Lyrics by Jana Frank

When winter‘s gone, the snow starts to melt
The trees outside are getting greener
I will release all my hope and the heat,
I hold in my heart, that‘s what I dream of

I promise I will show you the sun in my soul
And I will try to recapture your spirit, I am losing control

I want to feel your heart beating next to mine
And I will heal all the tortures of our times
So give me your sorrows, I will toss them away
Tell me your dreams and I will make them real today

When love grows deep, the walls start to crumble
And passion will fill your lifetime
You will release the sadness and pain,
replaced by my garden of sunlight

I will dry, brush away all the harm
that drips down from your soul
And you will sense the reasons for love,
it‘s a feeling that will grow

Hand me your sorrows, I will toss them away
I‘ll tell you my dreams and you will say …

And if you wonder is salvation a sign
I will be the answer – slowly – time after time you will be mine

So lay down your sorrows, I will kiss them away
Tell me your dreams and I will make them real today
