Lyrics

1. Lost In Space

Another star
has fallen without a sound
Another spark
has burned out in the cold

Another door
to barrens standing open

And who is there
to tell me not to give and not to go

How could I know? how could I know?
That I’ll get lost in space to roam forever

How could I know? how could I see?
feeling like lost in space to roam forever

I’m crawling down
The doorway to the badlands
And kicking down

Are you heard: it’s to the black
and all the damage
fading in the oblivion mirror
When the demons
are calling me, their dragging me away

How could I know?, how could I know?
That I’ll get lost in space to roam forever

How could I know?, how could I see?
feeling like lost in space to roam forever

Lost in space
lost in time
Lost in space
Lost in Time
Lost in Space

How could I know, how could i know
How could I know, How could I know
That I’ll get lost in space to roam for ever

How could I now, how could I see
feeling like lost in space to roam forever

Forever…

2. Lay All Your Love On Me

[ABBA Cover]

I wasn’t jealous before we met
Now every man I see is a potential threat
And I’m possessive, it isn’t nice
You’ve heard me saying that smoking was my only vice
But now it isn’t true
Now everything is new
And all I’ve learned has overturned
I beg of you
Don’t go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me

It was like shooting a sitting duck
A little small talk, a smile and baby I was stuck
I still don’t know what you’ve done with me
A grown-up man should never fall so easily
I feel a kind of fear
When I don’t have you near
Unsatisfied, I skip my pride
I beg you dear

Don’t go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
Don’t go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me

I’ve had a few little love affairs
They didn’t last very long and they’ve been pretty scarce
I used to think it was sensible
It makes the truth even more incomprehensible
‘Cause everything is new
And everything is you
And all I’ve learned has overturned
What can I do

Don’t go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
Don’t go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me

3. Another Angel Down

[feat. Jorn Lande]

I am the master of the game
that s made a fool you
I m watching from the highest tower
You got the aura to enchant them – and a symphony
And I have got the power

You better taste – they call it life: my special area
I m breeding winners over there
Ain’t it a sin to turn your back
on what you re given
It s time to take your share

God left me for dead – I’ve been turning my head
Away from the living – the time has come
To gamble for gain – To tear down the gate
And see what’s inside

We rock the ball
Been smashed to the ground
Arose from devotion
To take a look and see what is inside
Sight of the crown: Another angel down
We rock the ball
I m facing my pain
With a rage and a symphony
Driven by the wounds I cannot hide
Rise above the crowd: another angel down

We ll see a black hole will be left up in the starry sky
We gotta mourn another angel
If I am just a light descending to caducity
It s still so far away

There s no tomorrow
I don t remember yesterday
I m just living for tonight
And all the love I m not gonna waste no more
I won t spit what s divine

They left you for dead – turning your head
Away form the living – from flesh and blood
You’ve got the draw and desire to claw
For fortune and fame

We rock the ball
Been smashed to the ground
Arose from devotion
To take a look and see what is inside
Sight of the crown: Another angel down
We rock the ball
I m facing my pain
With a rage and a symphony
Driven by the wounds I cannot hide
Rise above the crowd: another angel down

4. The Story Ain’t Over

[feat. Bob Catley & Amanda Somerville]

Rousing from dreams, craving for someone
Wept himself to sleep
He s waiting for a sign from above
Where is the love

The hourglass in pieces, dashed to the wall
The future is over
Tomorrow’s been slipping away
And nothing remains

He’d known it won’t last forever
She’d go ahead for a while

When you open your eyes
When you gaze at the sky
When you look to the stars
As they shut down the night
You know this story ain’t over

When you open your eyes
When you gaze at the sky
When you look to the stars
As they shut down the night
You feel this story ain’t over

Where is the candle in this lonesome night?
Angle why are you so wayward
Abandoning me, try my belief

When life is not words
and tongue is not answers
And we only can t see a reason
Why would it mean
that it’s not meant to be

He’d known it won’t last forever
She d go ahead for a while

When you open your eyes
When you gaze at the sky
When you look to the stars
As they shut down the night
You know this story ain’t over

When you open your eyes
When you gaze at the sky
When you look to the stars
As they shut down the night
You feel this story ain’t over

5. Return To Avantasia

[Instrumental]

6. Ride The Sky

[Lucifer’s Friend cover]

[feat. Eric Singer]

Traveling this dark world, leaving light behind
seeing things I shouldn’t see
new eyes I got to find
Mars Venus and stars shaking
their heads at me
No more today’s – tonight I’ll be riding the sky

Hey world look out I’m coming
Friends pass me by and you saw me humming
Mars Venus and stars shaking
their heads at me
No more today’s – tonight I’ll be riding the sky
Tonight ride the sky, tonight ride the sky

The smile on his face turn me to stone
The words that he spoke
wouldn’t leave me alone
Mars Venus and stars
shaking their heads at me
No more today’s tonight I’ll be riding the sky
Tonight ride the sky, tonight ride the sky,

Tonight ride the sky
Tonight ride the sky…
