Castles in the Air

The Know Why the Nightingale Sings series

Stratovarius – Castles in the Air

When the day turned into night
When the stars run out of light
Will you be here to sing my song
I call your name
To maybe shield the flame
Cause the night is dark and long

In the kingdom of the visible
In the kingdom of the sun
Was a man who saw the years go by
He was always on the run

And the clock ticks fast for everyone
Father time wins every race
And the kingdom of the fading sun
It’ll pass without a trace

Our castles in the air
We build them in despair
But maybe there is no one to answer your prayer
Our castles in the air
We build them in despair
But you can help me smile on this road to nowhere

There’s a small black hole inside my heart
And it’s just the size of you
And the road goes on forevermore
And we will turn to dust

Holding on to hope against the hope
While the silence rages on
We would like to try to shield the flame
While we climb a burning rope

Our castles in the air
We build them in despair
But maybe there is no one to answer your prayer
Our castles in the air
We build them in despair
But you can help me smile on this road to nowhere

When the day turned into night
When the stars run out of light
Will you be here to sing my song
I call your name
To maybe shield the flame
Cause the night is dark and long

From the album Nemesis (2013).
