LyricsEdit

Beneath the WavesEdit

[Forever ®]
The water breaks the golden sunrays
Silver dances on the waves
But a memory...

I often dream about the old days
Playing hide and seek within the caves
But a memory...

[Forever ❊]
I still feel the rising tides embrace me
Carrying me to a place unknown
But a memory...

I remember all the love they gave me
In this fluid world we called our home
But a memory...

[Forever ♡]Beneath the waves we were invincible
In a world without frontiers
[Forever Ω] World without walls
[Forever ♡]Beneath the waves we were inseparable
In a world without walls

[Forever ☯]
Faces of cerulean oceans
Mirroring stars and sable skies
But a memory...

How I miss the scent of sweet emotions
Of a world so pure, devoid of cries
But a memory...

[Forever Bird] Beneath the waves we were unbeatable
[Forever Ω] In the silence of the sea
[Forever Bird] In a world without frontiers
[Forever Ω] World without walls
[Forever Bird] Beneath the waves we were untouchable
[Forever Ω] In our kingdom of the free
[Forever Bird] In a world without walls

[Forever ☯] Beneath the waves we were invincible
[Forever Ω] In the silence of the sea
[Forever ☯] In a world without frontiers
[Forever Ω] World without walls
[Forever ☯] Beneath the waves we were inseparable
[Forever Ω] In our kingdom of the free
[Forever ☯] In a world without walls

Face the FactsEdit

[Forever 🕈]
Face the facts, there is no way back
Arise, it's time to act
Face the facts, our future is black
Arise, we´re on the wrong track

[Forever ♡] ad lib
[Forever Ω] ad lib

But a Memory...Edit

[Forever ϟ]
Water breaks golden sunrays
Silver dances on the waves
But a memory...

I often dream about the old days
Playing hide and seek within the caves
But a memory...

World Without WallsEdit

[Forever Bird] Beneath the waves we were unbeatable
[Forever Ω] In the silence of the sea
[Forever Bird] In a world without frontiers
[Forever Ω] World without walls
[Forever Bird] Beneath the waves we were untouchable
[Forever Ω] In our kingdom of the free
[Forever Bird] In a world without walls
[Forever Ω] World without walls
[Forever Bird] Beneath the waves we were invincible
[Forever Ω] In the silence of the sea
[Forever Bird]In a world without frontiers
Beneath the waves we were inseparable
[Forever Ω] In our kingdom of the free
[Forever Bird] In a world without walls
