"Lost In The Twilight Hall" as written by Andre Olbrich, Marcus Siepen, Hans-juergen Juergen Kuersch and Thomas Stauch....
Awaiting my last breath
The mirror calls my name
It's showing me the way
Into the dark
The bridge appears
I jump into the dark side
And hear the voice it's cold as ice
"Welcome to reality"

Where am I now?
Darkness surrounds
Can't go forward
Can't go back

I see planets dying
I fall into the light
A new universe awakes
I'm a Traveler in Time
Pray for the light
Where's the key
To the gate
Of a new life - no
I search for deliverance
But I cannot find

Look behind the mirror
I'm lost in the twilight hall
Once I'll be back for a moment in time
That's when the mirror's falling down

Take me away
From the place I've been
To another life
In another world
A sign of life
Surrounds me now
The bridge appears in the dark
I'm free
I fly alone
Leaving the darkness now, forever?
The memories of children
And the wisdom of many lifes
Burns deep in me
Where will the light go to?
Where will the light go to?
Is this deliverance?
Is it the end?


I'm back there's a new chance for me
And all my memories are gone
I can feel what's happening to me
And the mirrow will burst

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentOne of my favorite Blind Guardian songs.

    I always kind of took the lyrics a bit literally. There's a character who's stuck in this odd portal dimension who can jump into different mirrors to live events in real time, only to come back to that dimension at the end of that event. So essentially, he's eternally stuck in this place and can get out but must inevitably return.

    On closer reading, however, it could be just generally allegorical for being in a sort of death-purgatory state and then getting reborn/reincarnated. The character doesn't really sound like Gandalf to me, though.

    General CommentI strongly belive this is about Gandalf after he dealt the deathstroke to the Balrog.His spirit left his body and journeyed to a different plane but then was given another chance to finnish the deed he set out to do and how he became Gandalf The White.

    General CommentMy opinion:
    It's about The Silmarillian by Tolkien.
    The reference to the Twilight Hall is the Halls of Ilúvatar, and the creation of Eä, the universe in other words, or the world that is.

    Anybody else want to add something?

    General CommentI'm quite certain it's about Gandalf, it mentions a bridge he jumped into the dark side. It also mentions that he will be back for a moment in time which he was just long enough to see the ring destroyed and then it was off to the Grey havens

    General CommentI don't think it's about Gandalf, he wouldn't be so unsure as to ask that many questions, he'd know what to do.
