Lord Of The Lost – Letters To Home lyrics

Part I: Leaving home

It was a sunny day
When you learned to stand up
So proud and oh so brave
You made those tiny steps
Right into my arms
The day I went away
They said I had to leave
For glory and for peace
For honour and for boon
It won't be long until
Our enemies are banned
They take me back home soon

Say good bye but not farewell
My little boy
Say good bye and don't you cry
My little boy

It was a sunny day
When I learned to stand up
So fearful and afraid
I held you in my arms
So warm and so alive
The day I went away
They said I had to leave
For glory and for peace
For honour and for boon
It won't be long until
Our enemies are banned
They take me back home soon
Your picture in my heart
Will give me will and strength
And help me to hold out

I'll save the world for you
My little boy
I'll save the world for you

The winds of darkness will take me away
On wings of blankness I'm going astray
I'm going under
I'm losing my way
I'm freely falling
I'm going astray

Part II: Into the killing fields

We're losing time
The days go by
I feel the anger rising high
The days and weeks and months go by
We're lost in time
No foes in sight

Do you sometimes think of me
Do you remember me
Standing at your side when
You learned to crawl
I have meant to harm
And my heart bleeds for you
If I'm not there when
You learn to fall
I'm sorry for

We're losing time
The years go by
I feel the hatred rising high
Eternities and times go by
We're lost in time
We're lost

Do you sometimes think of me
Do you remember me
Standing at your side when you learned to squeak
I'm with you all the time
Although you couldn't see
My heart was there when you learned to speak
I'm sorry for – I'm sorry for

I would give all the world to hear your
Sweet voice again
I would give all the world to hear you
Say your own name

Maybe I can leave
Maybe they'll let me go
Right into your arms
I might be coming home
It might be over now
But I already feel
The calm before the storm

Part III: When the bombs are falling

When the bombs are falling
Down the earth is breaking
Bullets cut the air around
My head is shaking
Splinters all around
The air is burning
I see blood, bones, guts, skin
Faith, love, devestated

Body parts are shredding
Fire storms are raging
Shrapnels tear our souls apart

We're overtaking
Love with hate and death
Explosions take our breath
We're blind, deaf, black, cold
Never be the same again

No one survived
Am I the only one who's left?
Nobody is alive
Am I the only one to crawl back home?

Part IV: The day after

I feel so cold but still I'm able to feel
I see no colors but still I'm able to see
I feel like floating but I am still in my shoes
My feet will carry me right back to you

Part V: Advent

It was a sunny day
When I learned to stand up
With scars and broken bones
I made those tiny steps
Back into your arms
That you won't be alone

I can't wait to see you smile
Your little heart beat next to mine
And kiss away your tears
The skyline feels like home
I can smell the scent
Of flowers so well known

Now I can see you from afar
Look how tall you are
Will you remember who I am?
I'm calling out your name
But you don't seem to hear
I'm calling out your name again

Now I stand in front of you
You look straight through me like air
I'm reaching out my hand
Now I can see you smile
Standing up and run into
The arms of this strange man

The winds of darkness will take me away
On wings of blankness I'm going astray
I'm going under – I'm losing my way
I'm freely falling – I'm going astray
