Can You Embrace?

 

The miracles of life can you embrace
The rain’s gone before clouds touch the ground
When you hear the call from the land of grace

In all the flames of fire fume’s left the trace
Into the bluest sea the sky is drowned
The miracles of life can you embrace?

Creatures are crawling into human race
Where the peace of mind can be lost and found
When you hear the call from the land of grace

Where the mother’s womb is the child’s birthplace
And the earth’s the playground vast and profound
The miracles of life can you embrace?

The sorrow ignores the fatal disgrace
Where voice is the pain and tear is the sound
When you hear the call from the land of grace

The teardrops caress on innocent’s face
Before the dawn the singing birds surround
The miracles of life can you embrace?
When you hear the call from the land of grace

You Are Free

 

I have to slay my heart’s desire
As long as your love’s far away
My love is burning in your fire
And I shall not beg you to stay

As long as your love’s far away
I need to hide my tears from you
And I shall not beg you to stay
You’re free to start a life anew

I need to hide my tears from you
For it fails to bring your love now
You’re free to start a life anew
In time you will forget your vow

For it fails to bring your love now
My love is burning in your fire
In time you will forget your vow
I have to slay my heart’s desire
