Time, it took the most of me
And left me with no key
To unlock the chest of remedy

Mother, the pain ain't hurting me
But the love that I feel
When you hold me near

The hopes were high
The choirs were vast
Now my dreams are left to live through you

Red sun rising
Drown without inhaling
Within the dark holds hard

Red sun rising
Curtain falling
Higher than hope my cure lies

Passion tide, an angel by my side
But no Christ to end this war
To deliver my soul from the sword

Hope has shown me a scenery
Paradise poetry
With first snow I'll be gone

The hopes were high
The choirs were vast
Now my dreams are left to live through you

Red sun rising
Drown without inhaling
Within the dark holds hard

Red sun rising
Curtain falling
Higher than hope my cure lies

I just would like to think that
Not why it happened to me
But why was I saved?
What else could I do now?

Your death saved me

Being in the dark about something
I can't even tell you how scary it is
You don't know what's inside
You don't know what's gonna happen to you
And the best way to put somebody at ease is to inform him
Even if it's the grim truth

Red sun rising
Drown without inhaling
Within the dark holds hard

Red sun rising
Curtain falling
Higher than hope my cure lies

Red sun rising
Drown without inhaling
Within the dark holds hard

Red sun rising
Curtain falling
Higher than hope my cure lies
