Long ago the skies turned gray
The fallen sun had gone away and left us cold,
until one thousand years would pass
and we'd sail away
Trapped within such mystery
We'd seen a light we'd never seen, all crowned with gold
Through morning mist with tears of ice
see her coming down
All upon our knees

Falling with the rain, with the rain
A queen has come before us
Falling with the rain, with the rain
I was alone, see how she took us all
By her side we'll stay
Shadows of love, blacken dawn
Fill the empty skies with
Powerful her throne, oh my queen
Upon this silent maze of ice

Oh how I love her so, yeah I can't let go
She is all I need
In the ice I'll stay 'till my dying day

I have come here for so long I never have known why,
only to have been shown away
There I saw you standing in the light for so long
Knew you had something more to say
All my night times are full of dreams
of you and I and falling rain
Oh, I know you so well

You are my queen of the city of ice
A frozen love has never left her eyes
Long live my queen of the city of ice
And alone her frozen love was carved in stone

I had a dream, something I believe in
Always knew the day would come
And they would come, and they would go,
and they would melt away our home
And in my dreams, their fires burned
They tear my heart
I listen to the wind, listen to the wind
Listen to the sad song she is singing now

Listen to the falling of the night and see what she knows
It's written in her eyes
Lately I've had feelings that are so hard to describe
Like armies marching from the South
And all the while she's blind, she's falling

So it came to pass that no more rain would fall to them
They come to bring us to our knees
With mighty fires they built around these city's castle walls,
our city melts into a sea
So we run into the hills and far away to cry in vain
Oh no no my queen

You are my queen of the city of ice
The bringer of my life is fading fast
Goodbye, my queen of the city of ice
And alone she slowly sinks into the sea

"Somewhere, out beyond the dark clouds
and the snow-covered mountains in the distance, the dawn is breaking,
and with it the hearts of a thousand grieving peasants
as they kneel at the shore that was once their beautiful city of ice.
And somewhere, far below the surface of the steamy sea, lies their queen.
As to her fate, no one knows."

(Look! The water's freezing over into a sea of ice!)

"Oh, my queen...
I have nothing but bitter memories of the times before we met,
when my life was cold and barren,
and I would waste days at a time crying for that which I did not have,
and I would lose endless nights of sleep.
And during these times, I would look to the sky,
for I knew, one day, you would come to me.
Oh, but once you came, I never thought you would ever leave me...
ever...ever...ever."

Here I stand, I'm all alone now, cursed by fate
I've burned my wings and I can't fly
All around a sea of ice, oh, could it be she waits for me...
but I'm never going to find out, am I?

So long, farewell, we are leaving
On our way now, new beginning
(So long) Falling with the rain, falling with the rain
(Farewell) Falling with the rain, falling with the rain
(We are leaving) Torn in the wind with a shake and a spin,
and I don't ever think I will come here again
(On our) There's a hole in my life, carved it with ice
(Way now) 'cause fate was a dealer that didn't think twice
(New beginning) I'm so lost on my own,
a statue of stone carving your name
'cause I'm falling, I'm falling,
I'm falling, I'm falling
I'm falling, I'm falling
I'm falling, I'm falling

"And so, as my people leave me by the sea of ice,
I know in my heart we will never again meet.
I am staying here with my queen, my sorrow masked only by my joy...
for she is dead, but she is here."

You are my queen of the city of ice
Goodbye, my queen of the city of ice
Long live my queen of the city of ice
(x2)
You are my queen of the city of ice
