Asia - Disco: 'Aqua'

Who Will Stop the Rain?

Asia

This
problem is insoluble

The answer seem impossible

The logic ceases to exist

Emotion is the beat we miss

I
stand on a world

Where dreams, realities, existence are the same

We take from our mother's skin

But the world is not to blame

Chorus

Who tells the wind which way to blow?

I wonder who will stop the rain

The rocks that hold the secrets, they don't know

So who can stop the rain?

We've lost the path for all we know

Now tell me when will it start again?

And as the old man lifts his hands

Please can you stop the rain

Stars
fall for away

Like they never did before

A new moon shining

Like it never will again

Chorus

Desert
white cloud

Spirits they sing

Rain falls from the big sky

Onto broken wing

There
is no sense in turning back

To wash the débris from the track

World without reason without rhyme

We fought for peace within our time

¿Quién parará
la lluvia?

Back in Town
Asia

Wheels turn
- smoke rise
Chrome wings - low ride
Freeway -red line
To city lights electric I glide
If there's escape from your illusion
You gotta break the whole constitution

Concrete - touch
sky
Main street - dogs lie
Steel bird - black tie
Is this what they call the freedom you buy?
Look at him behind the delusion
All you hear is the voice of confusion

Chorus
The bad boy's back
The bad boy's back in town
The bad boy's back
Don't you shoot him down

Wheels spin
- ace high
No win - no life
One world - truth lies
Love's just a word on a red neon sign
If there's escape from the conclusion
You gotta shake the whole institution

Chorus

If there's escape
from your illusion
You gotta break the whole constitution


De vuelta en la ciudad

Love Under Fire
Asia

Love under fire
We stand in the flame
Now and forever
After the rain
When is forever?
You can take it from me
It may be never
C'est la vie

Love under fire
And we stand in the flame
Now and forever
Afetr the rain
When is forever?
You can take it from me
It may be never
Just wait and see

You can hide
in the jungle
You can climb up a tree
You can scan the horizon
Tell me what do you see?
As cold os a mountain
With a heart that can freeze
There's a storm on the water
With every heart that she sees

Love under fire

Amor bajo fuego

Someday
Asia

Don't want to
live in another world
Don't want to dream of another girl
That's the way it was meant to be

I couldn't sleep
through the lonely night
I just cried till the morning
It's not the way it was meant to be

Someday you
may find somebody else
Someday love may shine on you
Someday you may find the one

You didn't leave
me, you ran away
Couldn't face what you had to say
It's not the way it was meant to be

Now you can
live in your other world
Me, I've found me another girl
And that's the way that it has to be

When I dream,
I dream of one world
But I know there's no such place
If I could ever find that one girl
In my world, in my world

Algún día

Little Rich Boy
Asia

Don't
read 'Marx'
He's a clean cut gùy
Just the dream
On a TV eye
If you swin
In the dark
You lose a hand
When you feed the shark

Little
rich boy, she's gonna find you
Little rich boy
Little rich boy, those claws will blind you
Just a little rich boy
She got hooks
In your veins
Feel the pleasure
Kill the pain
Drop a pearl
See the dragon fly
Crack the diamond
Do you still feel high?

Pobre niño rico

The Voice of Reason
Asia

Nothing
ventured nothing gained
Tired and washed out by the pain
De we share this problem, will it slip away?
Or do we fight another day?
Was I looking for a friend?
One I count on 'till the end
Is there something that I didn't do?
Does it all begin with you?

Chorus
So how did I, Oh!
Give you reason?
But how did I, Oh!
Give you reason?

After
all the fallen tears
When we wake the token dream
Who let the water slowly draw away?
All the colours that we made

Chorus

To
give you reason, to change the river's flow
To give you reason, to point the bone
To give you reason, go set your sprint free
I don't know, i don't know why

Is
there nothing I can say?
Is there nothing I can do, girl?
Didn't mean to break your life
Didn't mean to burn your world, no

Chorus

You
can keep the silver band
You can have the memories, girl
Now as 'Pilate' cleans the hands
It's no more to do with me, no

Chorus

So
how did I, Oh!
Give you reason?
Let the voice of reason say:


La voz de la conciencia

Lay Down Your Arms
Asia

We
used to live in a better world
Where sky and water were free
We point the finger
We point the gun
Is that the way it should be?

We
rape the land
And we tear the skin
Burn the blood in the stone
To fuel the fire of a selfish mind
Do you want to live here alone?

Chorus
Lay down your arms - surrender
You know you'll never get out of here
Lay down your arms - remember
No force - you'd better lay down your gun

Such
are the sins of humanity
Dark is the air that we breathe
A war to hide in society
Don't close your eyes to deceive

Too
many promises
Too many tears
Where does the future lie
If we burn away the years

We
can make this a better world
Where sky and water are free
So give the hand without the gun
That's the way it will be

Depón
tus armas

Crime of the Heart
Asia

Dreams
that have melted now frozen like statues
Under the surface here lies the unknown
Love has a way of disguising it's purpose
Seeing your pain my hand goes out to you

You
should have known better than to trust him
How the pain shines through your eyes

Nothing
hits harder than a crime of the heart
It breaks you up and it tears you apart
You just want to die, you've been so abused
Now you know how it feels to be used
Nothing hurts harder than a crime of the heart
I'm such a fool, I should have known from the start
I saw it coming and I feel I'm to blame
But love don't give in

I
watch your face as you stare into distance
Eyes filled with tears that look so far away
Deep in your heart can you feel a resistance?
Love it just happens there's no one to blame

You
should have known better than to sacrifice
The stained-glass soul you hide

Nothing
hits harder than a crime of the heart
It's the kind of feeling that pulls you apart
There's nowhere to run, there's nothing to say
You never knew that you could feel this way
Nothing hurts harder than a crime of the heart
I could have told you he was wrong from the start
I'm no guilty, but I feel I'm to blame
My love won't give in

Crime
of the heart


Crimen del corazón

A Far Cry
Asia

In
the dead of the night
On the wings of the wind
I hear the ocean bell
With a flash of the light
In the beat of the dark
The sound I know so well

I
shall never forget you
It's been so long
I should never have left you
The call so strong

Chorus
It's a far cry from a wild world
I want to get back to you
Such a long road, to the homeland
I must make my way to a far cry

From
the chords of the earth
To the depths of the sea
I will return
As i look to the hill
Through the eyes of the storm
I touch the flame

I
shall never forget you
It's been so long
I should never have left you
The call so strong

Chorus

It's
such a far cry

Un llanto
lejano

Don't Call me
Asia

You
know I'll never understand your reasons
I gave you all the love that could give
Now I'm sitting on a plane to take me far away
I've got to find a new place to live

It
used to feel so good when you stood beside me
How can you forget the words you said?
Things like: I'm gonna stay with you forever
Will always echo in my head

Don't
call me, don't call me, no more

If
this plane ride lasts forever
I couldn't quite get over you
We spent too much time together
I can't believe we're through

Don't
call me, don't call me, no more

No me llames

Heaven on Earth
Asia

I
am caught in the heat
Hold your head as you sleep
How can I close my eyes watching you
Such a fever inside from emotions within
Burning the night with the truth

Sweetest
poison - positive attraction
Raging in my mind

Chorus
Oh if you walk away
You'll take the life from me
Oh if you walk away
You'll take the air I breathe
Life would be lonely
More than you'll ever know
'Cos you've put all heaven on earth

I
hear the sound of you voice
On the breath of the wind
I feel the touch of an angel
Next to my skin
I cuts so deep inside
It draws out the life
Harder with every time

Sweetest
poison - positive attraction
Raging in my mind

El paraíso
en La Tierra
