[EMERALD RAIN]

I remember what once was and what can't be again
It's so hard daydreaming, knowing you can't go back
I've been trying and reaching to relive our yesterdays,
but they only live within our minds

Memories of long ago never seem to wash away
Alone I feel the falling rain, dreaming of what used to be
So much older now with so much yet to come
Still I find myself remembering

Emerald rain, hear my nostalgic serenade

Life brings us change, nothing remains the same
Tomorrow brings a new while the past fades away
I still can't help holding on to what was lost,
hoping one day I'll be whole again

Emerald rain, singing the swan song of yesterday

Our world is drifting so much farther away
as we mourn the loss of our yesterdays
Now only nostalgia remains
with the return of the morning rain

All that I want, all that I had,
all that I gave but would never take
All that I fought, all that I cried,
and all that I kept deep down inside
All that I love, all that I hate,
all of the things I did create
All that I was, all that I am
Is it all that I'll be until the end?
All that I was! All that I am!

[I REMEMBER WHEN...]

I remember when
I had no worries and life was carefree
I remember when
summer lasted forever - no more
And I remember when
you were there for me, but now you're long gone
And I remember when I last saw your face,
but nothing lasts forever
Now I'm serene and I've found peace
I am whole now and ready to start again

I remember when
you cried for me and protected my heart
I remember when
life was easy, how did things fall apart?
And I remember when
nothing mattered, now everything's changing
And I remember when
I was near the end, but the end is so far away
Now I'm serene and I've found peace
I am whole now and ready to start again

Memories no one can ever take away,
even though time has changed the world around me
Memories no one can ever take away
They're not gone! No, they're not gone!

Memories no one can ever take away,
even though time has taken you from me
Memories I'll keep forever so you will live on
You're not gone! No, you'll always live on!

[THROUGH OCTOBER SKIES]

In this new day, now I'm awake for the first time,
for the first day of the rest of my life
So strong and able to move on to live again today
To live another way now with a clear mind
Yesterday was the last time before the pain had died,
but today I'm alive, with the past far behind

Through October skies, my autumn's sunrise
It's the first sight of a new light
Through my world inside, ethereal moonlight
It's the first sight of the rest of our lives

Another fiery world of yellow and red
How could I have seen it again, our beginning and our end?
Autumn, I praise your painted sky that I adore
Celestial winds filling my soul once more

Through October skies, my autumn's sunrise
It's the first sight of a new light
Through a survivor's eyes, ethereal moonlight
It's the first sight of the rest of our lives

In this new life, the darkness has turned to light
The fear has died and the strong have survived
Now after so much time, I can move on
to live again today, another way,
with the end so far away

Through October skies, my autumn's sunrise
It's the first sight of a new light
Through my world inside, ethereal moonlight
It's the first sight of the rest of our lives

Then one day you came to me
Fate waited so many years
It knew that we were ready now
The search is over now that I found your soul
This is our destiny
The rest will be history
