Open Your Eyes – Alter Bridge

Looking back I clearly see
What it is that’s killing me
Through the eyes of one I know
I see a vision once let go
I had it all

Constantly it burdens me
Hard to trust and can’t believe
Lost the faith and lost the love
When the day is done

Will they open their eyes
And realize we are one
On and on we stand alone
Until our day has come
When they open their eyes
And realize we are one

I love the way I feel today
But how I know the sun will fade
Darker days seem to be
What will always live in me
But still I run

It’s hard to walk this path alone
Hard to know which way to go
Will I ever save this day
Will it ever change

Will they open their eyes
And realize we are one

Still today we carry on
I know our day will come
When they open their eyes
And realize we are one

Will they open their eyes
And realize we are one
(its hard to walk this path alone
hard to know which way to go)
Will they open their eyes
and realize we are one
(lost the faith and lost the love when the day is done)

Will they open their eyes
And realize we are one

Broken Wings – Alter Bridge

Fight the fight alone
When the world is full of victims
Dims a fading light
In our souls

Leave the peace alone
How we all are slowly changing
Dims a fading light
In our souls

In my opinion seeing is to know
The things we hold
Are always first to go
And who’s to say
We won’t end up alone

[CHORUS]

On broken wings I’m falling
And it won’t be long
The skin on me is burning
By the fires of the sun
On skinned knees
I’m bleeding
And it won’t be long
I’ve got to find that meaning
I’ll search for so long

Cry ourselves to sleep
We will sleep alone forever
Will you lay me down
In the same place with all I love

Mend the broken homes
Care for them they are our brothers
Save the fading light in our souls

In my opinion seeing is to know
What you give
Will always carry you
And who’s to say
We won’t survive it too

[CHORUS]

Set a-free all
Relying on their will
To make me all that I am
And all I’ll be

Set a-free all
Will fall between the cracks
With memories of all that I am
And all I’ll be

[CHORUS]

Cry of Achilles – Alter Bridge

Crying out.
Now you can’t escape you are buried in doubt
And it pulls you down
Now you’re in too deep you may never get out
Such an awful place

Tear it down
It’s almost too late is the end coming now
As you scream out loud?
You sever the peace til your truth has been found

Is there nothing left to follow?
Is there nothing left to steal?
Crying out for something more than I’ve been shown
Knowing none of this is real

[Chorus:]
Don’t close your eyes
Something beautiful is still alive
Don’t close your eyes
Never turn away and let it die

I cannot seem to find the answers
Every truth has slipped away
All that real is we will never cease to be
Still I search this world in vain

[Chorus]

Cry out to save tomorrow
It’s not too late
Or your heavy heart will follow
You to the grave

This is not the end. This is not the end

[Chorus]

We can’t hesitate, hope is not too late
For the time has come, what have we become?
Nothing left to do but deny the truth

Cradle to the Grave – Alter Bridge

Mother, tell me,
I long to hear the stories
Just like long ago
All these memories
Start to fade before me
I cannot let them go

No, I can’t let them go

From the cradle to the grave
It’s a fear I can’t escape
Who will be my hiding place
When you’re gone?

Father, stay here,
Don’t leave me like the other
Know, I need you so
All you gave me
Father, how you loved me
Treated like your own

Don’t ever let me go

From the cradle to the grave
It’s a fear I can’t escape
Who will be my hiding place
When you’re gone?

There’s no way to deny
The brevity of life

As time keeps marching on
All we have is lost

As time keeps marching on
All we have is lost

Nothing lasts forever
Nothing stays the same

From the cradle to the grave
It’s a fear I can’t escape
Who will be my hiding place
When you’re gone?

From the cradle to the grave
It’s a fear I can’t escape
Who will be my hiding place
When you’re gone?

How am I to carry on?
How am I to carry on?
As time keeps marching on
How am I to carry on?
All we have is lost

Nothing lasts forever
Nothing ever stays the same
