Transatlantic - Disco: 'Bridge Across Forever'

Duel With the Devil

I. Motherless Children

Transatlantic

Have you woke
up screaming in the silence of the night?

You wish you could start dreaming in clouds of white

But everything could change tonight

When you duel with the devil living in your mind

Time reveals nothing
- it's a suicide love affair

Whispers in the darkness and revolution in the air

Will you see or look behind

When you duel with the devil living in your mind

Motherless children

Wandering nowhere

Feels like there's miles to go

Reaching for water

Longing to go there

Flooding into your soul

Into your soul

Do you know the
difference between who and what you are

Will you ride off in the distance like some highway star

Will you try until you make it good

Or will you sell your body down in Hollywood

Motherless children

Wandering nowhere

Feels like there's miles to go

Reaching for water

Longing to go there

Flooding into your soul

Into your soul...

II. Walk Away

Transatlantic

There's a time
to understand

there's a time to see the sun

there's a time for making up

there's a time to come together

Fall into the
learning curve

feeding on experience

Never turn your back on me

never paint it black by numbers

It's so easy to
waste away

It's a simple operation

Far too many givin' in

fall into the dark temptations

Everybody needs
a King

Everybody needs a Captain

When your hear the fallen angels sing

in your private Armageddon

And you walk away

(With nowhere to go)

For another day

(Turn the lights down low)

But you'll never know

(While you walk away)

When you walk away with nowhere to go

Everybody had
their doubts

So they tried to pull me under

Everytime I felt the strain

someone sent a sense of wonder

Everybody walked
the hard road

in the dark they've felt the grind

Everybody heard the thunder

no one ever read the signs

And you walk away

For another day

But you'll never know

When you walk away with nowhere to go

III. Silence of the Night

Transatlantic

Have you woke
up screaming in the silence of the night?

You wish you could start dreaming but it's always black and white

Looking for that big sky that'll finally make it right

Well everything could change tonight

IV. You're not Alone

Transatlantic

Night time falls
it came too fast

Down the halls tiptoeing past

Out come the shadows of life itself

To clap along and wish you well

Motherless children

Wandering nowhere

Look up you're almost home

Reaching for water

Longing to know you're not alone

V. Almost Home

Transatlantic

Have you woke
up screaming in the silence of the night?

You wish you could start dreaming in black and white

But everything could change tonight

When you duel with the devil living in your mind

Motherless children

Wandering nowhere

Look up you're almost home

Reaching for water

Longing to go there

Flooding into your soul

Into your soul…

 

Duelo con el Demonio

Suite Charlotte Pike

Transatlantic

I. If She Runs

If the runs let
her run, run, run

And just hope that she comes back

If she breaks let her break, break, break

Let apologies attract

And if she's free
let her be, let her be

She's not in such bad company

The big man's still got her name written on the wall

If she cries let
her cry, cry, cry

'Til there isn't any more

If she laughs let her crack

If that's what she's looking for

And if she waits
let her wait, let her wait

You'll have to leave this one to fate

It can't ever be too late when she comes to call

It's hard - living
in such uncertainty

It's hard - climbing the statue of Liberty

It's hard - calming the Beatle inside of me

It's hard - missing my Max and Melody

II. Mr. Wonderful

Her lips were
ruby red

She had a pretty head

Not even once she missed Sunday school

Remember what mama said "stick to the rules"

This boy was something
else,

someone she knew so well

Echoes of snakes in paradise

saw the strangest fire burning in his eyes

His name is Wonderful

And it's wonderful just to be near him

His name is Majesty

And his Majesty's requesting your presence

He took her for
a ride

into the starless night

Talked about far away places he's been

could take her down to the city of Sin

"Grab it
while you are young

trust me there's nothing wrong"

But she feared what was 'round the bend

Said "Thank you, but no thank's 'cause I've got a friend" and

His name is Wonderful

And it's wonderful just to be near him

His name is Majesty

And his Majesty's requesting your presence

III. Lost and Found Pt.1

Don't you think
if you could be lost

Don't you think that you can be found

Don't you think if you were the world you'd turn it around

Don't you start looking behind

You better stand up 'cause this is your time

Don't you think that you'd better start by changing your mind

IV. Temple of The Gods

In the Temple
of the Gods

We can get it on

In the Temple of the Gods

We will make our home,

Far from these Boulevards

We will plunge headlong

In the Temple of the Gods

We will sing this song

Give up all the
reasons that you know

Slide down where the time moves nice and slow

Ease back and relax

No figures and no fax

Awakening the stranger in your soul

In the Temple
of the Gods

We can get it on

In the Temple of the Gods

We will make our home,

Far from these Boulevards

We will plunge headlong

In the Temple of the Gods

We will sing this song

V. Motherless Children / If
She Runs (Reprise)

Left the countryside
for the city

She reside now on second floor,

No more gardening in the backyard

Busy keepin' the wolves from the door

Motherless children
ain't going nowhere

running in circles, time after time

Careless, confused, frozen and faithless

Dreaming this dream to ease our minds

And if she runs

Let her run

Come on 'cause now the time has come

The big man's got the Mother and the Son

Written on the wall

Don't want to
hear it now…………..

 

La Suite de Charlotte Pike

Bridge Across Forever

Morse/Prince

There's a bridge
made of light that crosses between death and life

Where shadows walk in the sun

And desperate lovers run

One day a child and an angel stood on either side

Of a magic river that there was no crossing

But as they tried the water began to rise

Then they raised their eyes

And as the river
fell away

They built a bridge across forever

Between tomorrow and today

There is a bridge across forever

I've had this
dream all my life that doesn't live in black and white

It has no end it just begins in distant sands and magenta winds

And my love she is standing by the side

Of a magic river that there is no crossing

Maybe someday when our spirits begin to rise

And light fills our eyes

We will meet again
someday

On the bridge across forever

I know that we will find our way

To the bridge across forever

Between tomorrow and today

There is a bridge across forever

I know that we will find our way

To the bridge across forever

 

El puente sobre
la eternidad

Stranger in Your Soul

Transatlantic

I. Sleeping Wide Awake

Once not so long
ago

I lived far below

Where you are

I didn't even know

Home was far away

I was sleeping wide - awake

Breaking down

Waiting for the sound

But I can't hear
it now

Is it all too late?

'Cause I would sell my dreams

If I could be awake

If I could be awake

There - walking
into walls

Piercing through the pain

Here we are

Reaching through the rain

I almost caught a glimpse

To feel that Sunday high

I would fall

This makes no sense at all

But I can't hear
it now

Not a single word

And though I strain my voice

I cannot be heard

Outside the smile

The insider breaks

And I would give my dreams

If I could be awake

Whatever you're
looking for

Don't ever start looking behind

Whatever you want to change

You better start changing your mind

'Cause everything can be done

Stand up 'cause this is your time

II. Hanging in the Balance

Go where you're
going to

You can rule your mind

You will not decay

Decay is always waiting

You've got nowhere to go

So you look behind

What you sought to find

Is always fading

Wish to be wish
less

Less can live evermore

More doesn't satisfy

The deeper feeling

Lose if you want to find

Find what you're looking for

For all your dreams can live

Live as if to satisfy the meaning

Whatever you're
looking for

Don't ever start looking behind

Whatever you want to change

You better start changing your mind

'Cause everything can be done

Stand up 'cause this is your time

Drink in the big
dream

Dream but you have to wait

Wait 'til you get it right

Write down every letter

Paint with the broadest stroke

Stroke through the deepest sea

See what you have in mind

To make it better



Get in on the ground floor

Floor to ceiling is so high

High will become the low

It will make sense

Want always wants some more

More never is enough

Enough is enough

Remember life is hanging in the balance

Whatever you're
looking for

Don't ever start looking behind

Whatever you want to change

You better start changing your mind

'Cause everything can be done

Stand up 'cause this is your time

III. Lost and Found Pt.2

Don't you think
if you can be lost

Don't you think that you can be found

Don't you think if you were the world you turn it around

Whatever you're
looking for

Don't ever start looking behind

Whatever you want to change

You better start changing your mind

'Cause everything can be done

Stand up 'cause this is your time

IV. Awakening the Stranger

In the time it
takes to be lost or found

In the wake of something not for the crowd

Awakening the stranger in your soul

It isn't always quite that easy

Awakening the stranger in your soul

All the rage the
world goes on outside

It's alright come in here - it's safe to hide

Awakening the stranger in your soul

Is more than just a thought or feeling

There is no worldly danger beyond control

There's so much more than what we're seeing

Awakening the stranger in your soul

V. Slide

Give up all the
reasons that you know

Slide down where the time moves nice and slow

Ease back and relax

No figures and no fax

Awakening the stranger in your soul

It's alright to
give up your control

(come in where it's safe - there is no I)

Move along we've paid your expressway toll

(Look at all the others floating high)

It's the 5:00 am alarm

No time to use your charm

Surrender is the only way to go

Awakening the stranger in your soul

No thought for yourself you just let go

VI. Stranger in Your Soul

When you come
to make love your only goal

Words cannot describe the feeling

Awakening the stranger in your soul

From the shallow to the deepest meaning

When you come
to make love your only goal

Words cannot describe the feeling

Now we're here in full sight - we can be whole

Let's dive and never hit the ceiling

There's - walking
into walls

Piercing through the pain

Here we are

Reaching through the rain

I almost caught a glimpse

Brighter than the sky

A child grown

A stranger coming home

And I can hear
it now

Every single word

And when I strain my voice

I will be assured

Outside the storm

But in here the big break

That I might chance to dream

That I might be awake

Awakening the stranger in your soul
