Testi / Lyrics  “Rings of earthly light” & “1991/1995 Rings of earthly light and other songs”

RINGS OF EARTHLY LIGHT

a) EARTHCORE

Trees are drawing shades
On the wall; I keep my shade
Toy with my brain in this place of rest
And I try to find in time my freedom light

Soft flights,
Flickerig waves of colour without light,
Strikes of wind
Divide myself from fantasy.
Earthly spirits out from the mist,
Wandering knights
Mount white wild steeds.

In this land my spirit’s searching for a link
To this Earth’s core.
In this land my spirit’s searching for a link
To this Earth’s core.

Greedy strains upon this world
While I’m floating in the breeze
Picking rings of memory
Scattered by the wings of time to come

In this land my spirit’s searching for a link
To this Earth’s core.
In this land my spirit’s looking for a link
To this Earth’s core.

b) PORTRAIT
In leaves
I made you, maiden
I made you, maiden, mine for life
From leaves you came,
I made you mine
I made you, maiden, mine for life

c) SELL MY FEELINGS

Sell my feelings to the sky to give me life,
Stop for me eternal time
Run with me in glittering woods,
Run with me behind the colours of the sun.
Come through and hear trees breathe
From the leaves you made me,
Now create a story for my time
Sing me in verse like poetry
I’ll reach the lake that’s in my dreams
where you’ll find me

She was flying
In rings of earthly light
Where the forest’s dark
Waterwise
My mind came dark and so my dreams

She was flying
In rings of earthly light
Where the forest’s dark
Waterwise
I knew my sense of life was gone


IN THE RISING MIST

Can you see me in this ancient disguise
Proudly winning battles
I can’t really trust myself
On this battleground the rising mist
Is floating on the corpses
and the broken spears

I walk alone upon the grass
Upon this nightmare toned in red
It’s hard to find the way
Lost in this empty scene of fight
Here in the mist my heart can feel
The pain in my soul

Suddenly a light
Shining from beyond
Cleared up myself upon this world
For all the fantasy that dwellson the earth
Carved the stone and turned the mist
Into a winter’s snow


PUSHING TOGETHER

In the sun I miss her
Pushing together
But the sun is in my heart
The brightness that helps me find my way

While the stars begin to shine
The night will fly
And leave me in the hands of destiny
Crashing with violence the fire within
Its searing ground

Lost in this long way down
Of drying dreams
Lost in this long way down
Of drying souls,
I look in this strange dried pool
My life.
And while I set on this trip
I pass her by

And in the sun
My silent cry
Will reach every single shine
To lose this way
And to die

Follow the tricks
Inside your mind
The lady will dream your eyes
And the rain
Will be on your side.

While the stars begin to shine
The night will fly
Giving me back my destiny
And watching myself
Alone in this land
Of newborn life

YOU’LL BECOME RAIN

Under a sheet of dream light
Your life passes by like raindrops gathering in a reel
You can’t find a place for living
Can’t find a way for mending wounds and fly away

You’ll find another reason
Another cruel dream
And the rain will flow on the wind
The rain will sail on the wind

Sat on the edge of nowhere
You try to remind the face now drowning in your dreams
Lost in the haze of shadows
A rainbow appears above and it’s another day

And looking in the mirror
You’ll become rain
Flowing down in the sea
Flowing down in the sea

____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

THE WAY HOME

Cold rain and wind rise
Open your mind
You’ re painted now
On this wall made of grey
Our true images away
I wish you could hear my praise;
“Please, stay, my guide
Be on my side
I wish I could leave my time”

“Tell me please why we’re here for”
“ I would lie but we now have to learn
How to fight”.
“Tell me please what’s this knife for”
“Offer me to your gods,
Only so you may return
Back in the place of your own”

Facing the night that followed I came out in the dark
Where every shadow dies
Where every river flows.
I left behind that place that was my glares of mind
The figures on the
wall enlightened by a new dawn
Deep inside


THROUGH THE SKY

You know I loved you
And you left me through the sky
I know you loved me
You are dancing in the light
In my mind
Now I know you live,
and we can stay together through the light
You know I love you
You’re dancing in the snow of clouds
You know it helps again
To see you through the sky
You know I love you
You are dancing through the night
Tomorrow will I cry?
You know it helps again
To think you live in a world of light
What did I do until I could see you
in my daughters’ eyes
You know I love you
You’re dancing in the snow of clouds
I know it helps again
To see you through the sky
You know I love you
I am listening you through the sky
You know I love you
I am dancing with you in my mind


AND WHEN THE TRAIN HAS LEFT

Watching me watching you watch me.
Out through the window, in an autumn breeze
And when the doors are closed
And when you’re gone
I still feel your perfume on me
Still feel the past days of our life

Having you standing near was all my life
for all those years
Knowing that time would come and wash
this heaven clean

Watching me watching you watch me.
Locked in a battle with our memories
And when the train has left here.
I’m all alone
Then is the time to say we’ve
lost all we had and turn and go

Having you wash me clean displayed to me my darkest dreams


Testi / Lyrics  “The ancient veil” & “New – The ancient veil remastered”

THE ANCIENT VEIL

A quick shadow escaping on my left
I turned to see but it had disappeared
No one, just an impression
Just a silver wind blowing
I want to see where it mingles with the clouds
There’s a window in the sky, I open and pass it through

I have no aim
Just let my feet move and listen to them
Picking up sounds of my footsteps today
I’m writing songs for someone new

Now I know silver wind in her voice
She sings all the day and days are too short
I want to see I want to raise
The ancient veil from her face
The quiet thresholds of her eyes
Show me ways not old not new
“Look through my eyes and be like transparent water
which flows on everything and lets itself be drunk”

I have no aim
Just let my feet move and listen to them
Picking up sounds of my footsteps today
I’m writing songs for someone new


FLYING

I’m flying in living spaces
Flight gives shivers of pleasure and pain

I’m reaping childish games by love
And flight rise my whirl in dreaming joy

Fleshy embracing in my body
that’s taking you, is frisking
Sweet embracing for your body
that’s loving you and frisking me

Don’t upset my lifetime for love
In my freedom eyes shine free love


CREATURES OF THE LAKE

Pickin’ up a smooth stone
And throwin’ it into the lake
I stood and watching falling down
Circles on the water
How they form and disappear
Calling me down to the deep
And now my image
is still in silent and empty again
but someone really is calling me, just from there
Cause I’m going down and through the lake
I can breathe under water
It’s a homecoming, I feel my place
Circles on the water
How they form and disappear
Calling me down to the deep
Down here I’m free
I’ve never felt like this before
This is what I was made for, I realize
And the lights and sounds and colors here
are everything I need
A newborn soul in me as awaken
Circles on the water
How they form and disappear
Calling me down to the deep
Dancing round under the sun
Water is so sweet
Wearing moonbeams at night
And the light of the stars
And I whisper with my sisters
Sweet creature of the lake
Dancing round under the sun
Water is so sweet
Wearing moonbeams at night
And the light of the stars
And I whisper with my sisters
Sweet creature of the lake
And our songs last forever
Our lives know no time
Know no time
Circles on the water
How they form and disappear
Calling me down to the deep
Calling me down to the deep


CAN YOU FEEL ME?

Can you feel me?
Can you fly?
When the sun is around the corner of day
Can you hold me?
Can you cry?
When the words are inside the picture of time
When you know that I’m looking down the sky
When you know that we’ll see the sunlight
Can you feel me?
Walking through the light
When the sun is around the corner of day
You’ll fall from sky into the sea
Rejoicing for your choice
Giving me with your embrace
The kingdom of the sun
And I will run like the wind
Crossing days and nights
Dissolving me in little sparks
In the eternal fire
Can you feel me?
Can you fly?
When the sun is around the corner of day
Can you hold me?
Can you cry?
When the words are inside the picture of time
When you know that I’m looking down the sky
When you know that we’ll see the sunlight
Can you feel me?
Walking through the light
When the sun is around the corner of day


DANCE AROUND MY SLOW TIME

Gonna make you bright
Without noise
Gonna make you bright tonight
Remembering skies and wine
That we saw together in old times

Maybe it’s the blind will
Maybe it’s your flight
I can see fields of green
All around your wings

You have seen the stars
Through your skin
You have felt inside the taste
Of water of the lake

We cannot hear a sound
From your lips
Refusing explanation now
You left too many dreams

Now dance around my slow time
When I fall
Dance around my slow time
When I’ll realise
You need the light for
The warmth so deep to reach (2 volte)

Gonna make you bright
With no screams
It’s time to live the reasons to the earth
And we’ll know so well the days
That change the call
And we’ll know the hands of time
Hold me in the dreams of light
We’ll wait for you


NIGHT THOUGHTS

Dressing up young spires of love
Much confusion bring the fight

Peoples answers, iron melt
And I see the mask of smiles the fireworks

Wheels turn grind the grain
Force approaches the chains

And I heard the trumpet sound
Announce the sunset and the ruin

The glory of the night of steel
And I know the smell of death that dresses the room

The silver light of night
Covers all the shapes

Dressing up young spires of love
I will bring the sign of day
To break my will
Listening through the walls
To your breath


NEW

All I need is feeling you by my side
I never walk alone in empty fields of sky
And I remain to see your eyes when you cry
They seem to me two stars enlightening all my life

You’re not so lonely, tonight I go
Into your dreams, I hold your hand

Now you understand what I feel for you
Don’t be afraid I stay with you in every time
And if the words are not enough for your heart
I play my song which talks of you for all the time

You’re not so lonely, tonight I go
Into your dreams, I hold your hand


TALKING FRAME

Dawn reaches all the points of another land, silence
Shadows and lights talk of another lands, listen
Stay here for a while and hear the story
Stay here for a little while

Now all the shapes
Run across the eyes in winter’s rain
Always the same
It seems to discover you there

They’re coming from the east
Down from the hills around
They’re coming down to be
Higher at the end of the day

The bird watches over another
Morning dream of clouds
Bringing the sign of another
Work of earth and sky

He flew behind the sea
And saw the waves passing by
Becoming foam to fall again

Over there where dawn will meet the day
Grass is thick and wet
It seems to see you walking with naked feet
Maybe another trick of the time
Fragrance feels the air
You can breathe peace


Testi / Lyrics  “I am changing”

Ancient Veil - I am changing - 2017

IF I ONLY KNEW

You know the tears are falling now
I need to come back to you
I am walking down the road

Try to heal this broken heart
I knew I lost you when it was too late
If I only knew

When the night is coming back again
I feel so lonely
in this empty room
You know the reason why

I felt better when you were over here
“But life goes on”
that’s what always said to me, my friends

I knew I lost you when it was too late
I see you any time I close my eyes
If I only knew

When the night is coming back, I feel alone
It drives me crazy
My heart is like a stone


I AM CHANGING

Sweetness polishes harmonies
Voices whispering melodies
Now that I have come to be
I can hear it

Open up my eyes and see
Are they singing this for me?
Now that I have come to be
I can sing it

My voice reaches the worlds
they teach us that we can never go
My song takes me away
it makes me go forward, don’t you know.

Strange, the people all around me
Why the dance tries to break free?
Now that I have come to be
I am dancing

Joyfulness inside of me
It is plainly clear to see
Now that I have come to be
I am changing

My voice reaches the worlds
they teach us that we can never go
My song takes me away
it makes me go forward, don’t you know (2 times)

Joyfulness inside of me
It is plainly clear to see
Now that I have come to be
I am changing


ONLY WHEN THEY’RE BROKEN

Stop the tape, turn off the light,
the stars are bright, the day’s the night
and all the people walking disappear.

There’s several books upon the shelf
inviting me to lose myself
and all I ever wanted can be clear.

Can you hold out your hands?
Take a piece of life with you.
And it will make your spirit true.

Take the piece and make the peace
and break apart the grey with these
And watch the colours blend into a sphere.

I only saw you once but you were alive
and all for what it’s worth
If I never see you again I know I’ll die.

Can you hold out your hands?
Take a piece of life with you.
And it will make your spirit true.

Turn your back and walk away,
some things last and some things stay,
only when they’re broken do they mend.

Take the piece and make the peace
and break apart the grey with these
And watch the colours blend into a sphere

Take the piece and make the peace
And watch the colours blend into a sphere


YOU WILL SEE ME

All you know is my name and nothing else
Behind the wall you called my name and I fell in love

All I heard it was a song
a lovely and soft sweet song
it sounded great to me

I need to know who I love
Walking up and down the street
to find an open door

Will I be strong
to cross the wall and spend my life
forever by your side
oh yes by your side

I’ll cross this wall
You will see me
And I’ll see you

I cannot find the door
After all this time the wall
is too high for me
I remain behind the wall
I can hear your voice and
it still sounds great to me


THE FLY

I’m arriving there, I’m arriving don’t know where.
I’m arriving there, know so well, I’d lose myself

Don’t think that it’s truly there
What I’m seeing will disappear
Even if this is a dream I’ll stay a while.
In this strangest place I find myself, I smile.

My trip begins here and now.
I am sure that I will arrive

Valleys and mountains filling my scene, filling my scene
Running toward them they’re already mine
They’re already mine
Something is not right here, I am frightened

Maybe it’s no good for me to be here
for me to be here
for me to be here
for me to be …

Suddenly I fly away, I fly away
Everything changes or it is me?
Or it is me?

It’s really now so clear now, like the daytime.
First I use to think
That my life was always right
But my life I have, never will conclude.

Look inside of yourself sometimes.
You too can begin to fly


CHIME OF THE TIMES

I wrote a sign, I held it up high
Written big so it touched the sky
Letters in gold so they glowed through the night
I waited there till morning.
I’m still there now alone
The man, the sign, the stone
Distant chimes, sign of the times.

I wrote a sign, I wrote it in red.
Stayed all day with it in my bed.
Letters so small that they could not be seen.
I waited there till morning
Distant chimes, sign of the times.


A MOUNTAIN OF DUST

She walked inside the doorway
and talking ‘bout me
She took me and spread the wings
I am flying now I see all my life
A mountain of dust is over me
I dream when the night falls

I am flying now and I see your life
A mountain of dust is over you
I dream when the night falls
And looking down I see the lake which is
collecting the tears
of all people’s broken souls

But now all brains come back to life
All the mankind can go on
Because the wind we created
Has blown away the dust over you
The sun is now shining again
and I can fly over and inside the rainbow
All alone
