Solace Lyrics

Drawn to the Rhythm

When we wore a heart of stone we wandered to the sea
Hoping to find some comfort there yearning to be free
And we were mesmerized by the hill of the night
And the smells that filled the air
And we layed us down on sandy ground it was cold but we didn't care

And we were drawn to the rhythm
Drawn to the rhythm of the sea
And we were drawn to the rhythm
Drawn to the rhythm of the sea

We fell asleep and began to dream when something broke the night
Memories stirred inside of us the struggle and the fight
And we could feel the heat of a thousand voices
Telling us which way to go
And cried out is there no escape from words that plague us so

And we were drawn to the rhythm
Drawn to the rhythm of the sea
And we were drawn to the rhythm
Drawn to the rhythm of the sea

In the still and silent dawn another day is born
Washed up by the tireless waves the body bent and torn
When you wake in the face of the blinding sun
And you search only to find
That heaven is a stranger place than what you've left behind

And we were drawn to the rhythm
Drawn to the rhythm of the sea
And we were drawn to the rhythm
Drawn to the rhythm of the sea


Into the Fire(Sarah McLachlan/Pierre Marchand)

Mother teach me to walk again
Milk and honey so intoxicating

And into the fire
I'm reunited
Into the fire
I am the spark
Into the fire
I yearn for comfort

Open the doors that lead on in to Eden
Don't want no cheap disguise
I follow the signs marked back to the beginning
No more compromise

And into the fire
I'm reunited
Into the fire
I am the spark
Into the fire
I yearn for comfort

Fire the water that carries me to the sea
You I see as my security

And into the fire
I'm reunited
Into the fire
I am the spark
Into the fire
I yearn for comfort

I will stare into the sun until its light doesn't blind me
I will walk into the fire until its heat doesn't burn me
And I will feed the fire

And into the fire
I'm reunited
Into the fire
I am the spark
Into the fire
I yearn for comfort


The Path of Thorns (Terms)

I knew you wanted to tell me
In your voice there was something wrong
But if you would turn your face away from me
You cannot tell me you're so strong
Just let me ask of you one small thing
As we have shared so many tears
With fervor our dreams we planned a whole life long
Now are scattered in the wind

In the terms of endearment
In the terms of the life that you love
In the terms of the years that pass you by
In the terms of the reasons why

Through the years I've grown to love you
Though your commitment to most would offend
But I stuck by you holding on with my foolish pride
Waiting for you to give in
You never really tried or so it seems
I've had more than myself to blame
I've had enough of trying everything
And this time it is the end

In the terms of endearment
In the terms of the life that you love
In the terms of the years that pass you by
In the terms of the reasons why

There's no more coming back this way
The path is overgrown and strewn with thorns
They've torn the life-blood from your naked eyes
Cast aside to be folorn

In the terms of endearment
In the terms of the life that you love
In the terms of the years that pass you by
In the terms of the reasons why

Funny, how it seems that all I've tried to do
Seemed to make no difference to you at all


I Will Not Forget You(Sarah McLachlan/Darren Phillips)

I remember the nights I watched as you lay sleeping
Your body gripped by some far away dream
Well I was so scared and so in love then
And so lost in all of you that I had seen

But no one ever talked in the darkness
No voice ever added fuel to the fire
No light ever alone in the doorway
Deep in the hollow of earthly desires
But if in some dream there was brightness
If in some memory some sort of sigh
And flesh be revived in the shadows
Blessed our bodies would lay so entwined

And I will oh I will not forget you
Nor will I ever let you go
I will oh I will not forget you

I remember when you left in the morning at daybreak
So silent you stole from my bed
To go back to the one who possesses your soul

And i back to the life that I dread
So I ran like the wind to the water
Please don't leave me again I cried
And I threw bitter tears at the ocean
But all that came back was the tide

And I will oh I will not forget you
Nor will I ever let you go
I will oh I will not forget you


Lost

By the shadows of the night I go
I moved away from the crowded room
That sea of shallow faces masked in warm regret
They don't know how to feel, they don't know what is lost, ohh...

Lost in the darkness of a land
Where all the hope that's offered is
Memories of being taken by the hand
And we are led into the sun
But I don't have a hold on what is real
Though we can only try
What is there to give or to believe

I want it all to go away I want to be alone
Sympathies wasted on my hollow shell
I feel there's nothing left to fight for
No reason for a cause
And I can't hear your voice and I can't feel you near

Lost in the darkness of a land
Where all the hope that's offered is
Memories of being taken by the hand
And we are led into the sun
But I don't have a hold on what is real
Though we can only try
What is there to give or to believe

I wanted a change knowing all I could do was try
I was looking for someone...


Back Door Man

Open your eyes, look around
You feel the earth it wanders
Out, from under your feet, the ground
Is not firm but soft and weak-like skin
Under the touch, cannot stop to falter
Now, the damage is done the certainties gone
The spirits altered

And now the angry morning
Gives the early signs of warning
You must face alone the plans you make
Decisions they will try to break

Our hands are tied on the table
Maybe you can try at the back door man
While the helpless line up on the doorsteps
'Cause it's all they can do to try to get through

All of your life you've lived in a world as pure
As Eden's sixth day. Now all you've been allowed
Is taken away, they will not let you be so proud
And you have felt the fear growing inside
Protest follows far and wide. They'll see how long
It will take 'till you fall from so much denied
Your soul it aches relentless from the fear
That they will never guess, so unfair they
They can make you feel so small
And the fear you know is real

Our hands are tied on the table
Maybe you can try at the back door man
While the helpless line up on the doorsteps
'Cause it's all they can do to try to get through


Shelter

They're crowded into the smallest spaces
While outside all of nature cries
It's known to be cruel and unfair
But there is no place to hide
Oh I've seen a part of people that I never really want to share
Oh I've seen a part of people that I never knew was there

Shelter, give them shelter from the coming storm
Shelter, give them shelter from the coming storm

I can't sleep haunted by their faces
The sadness in their eyes
It hurts so much to see them helpless
It makes me want to cry
But still there is so much left unanswered
For so many innocent lives
They close the doors and are letting nobody in
And only the strong will survive

Shelter, give them shelter from the coming storm
Shelter, give them shelter from the coming storm

I've seen the anger and I've seen all the dreams
And I've watched an existence torn apart by the seams
And though I may seem helplessI will do all that I can do
Oh I've seen a part of people that I never reallyWant to share
Oh I've seen a part of people that I never knew was there

Shelter, give them shelter from the coming storm
Shelter, give them shelter from the coming storm


Black

As the walls are closing in
And the colors fade to black
And my eyes are falling fast and deep into me
And I follow the tracks that lead me down
And I never follow what's right
And they wonder sometimes when they see all the
Sadness and pain the truth begins to light

'Cause I can't see no reason
What is blind cannot see
'Cause I want what is pleasin'
All I take should be free
What I rob from the innocent ones
What I'd steal from the womb

If I cried me a river of all my confessions
Would I drown in my shallow regret
As the walls are closing in
And the colors fade to black
And the night is falling fast and deep into the sea
And in the darkness all that I can see
The frightened and the weak
Are forced to cling to mistakes they know nothing of
At mercy are the meek

'Cause I can't see no reason
What is blind cannot see
'Cause I want what is pleasin'
All I take should be free
What I rob from the innocent ones
What I'd steal from the womb



Home

Child walks down to the river's edge
And looks out as far as she can see
And draws each breath as if it were the last
And wipes away the tears across her sleeve
She can see where the river crawls to the sea
Like a baby into mother's care
Somehow the longing is so far away
The innocence so wasted and aware

And look at the child with the dream in her eyes
Holding it deep inside her
Thnking about home...home

So much anger so deeply ingrained
Seemed a burden that was hers alone
She didn't think that there was anything wrong
With wanting a life that she could call her own
How could I explain?
You would not want to hear
You wouldn't listen if I talked anyway
For you were too weighed down by your own fears

And look at the child with the dream in her eyes
Holding it deep inside her
Thnking about home...home


Mercy

Mercy pure and simple
Longing cold and hollow
With sweet breath you'd come to warm me
But I held on too hard to only a memory

You lie there on the swollen ground
Deserted in your heart
Still longing for what yesterdays lost
And for all that tomorrow might bring

The passion lost, taken, stolen
The dreams we had and we shared, shattered, broken
With sweet breath you'd come to soothe me
But I go blind and filled with fear
Would send you away from me

There is no hope in regretting now
All the pain that we could not see
We both knew what we wanted
And we took it believing it true
