Song lyrics[edit]

Reach for my hand,
Let's show them that we can
Free our minds and find a way.
The world is in our hands,
This is not the end.

Enter (1997)[edit]

  • Come near me,
    enter my private chambers,
    I want to feel the warmth on my face,
    light-in darkness,
    lift me up from here.
    Give me you wings,
    to flee from my ivory tower.
    • Enter, written by Robert Westerholt, Sharon den Adel, Richard Willemse
  • After
    the cold darkness,
    in the heart of the forest,
    when birds are singing
    for the newborn sun,

    in the womb of the leaves,
    on the branches of the trees,
    lies a treasure in the morning:
    The Pearls of light.

    • Pearls Of Light, written by Robert Westerholt, Sharon den Adel, Richard Willemse
  • Is there a place deep within?
    A place where you hide your darkest sins?
    • Deep Within

Mother Earth (2000)[edit]

She rules until the end of time
She gives and she takes
She rules until the end of time
She goes her own way
  • She rules until the end of time
    She gives and she takes
    She rules until the end of time
    She goes her own way
  • When leaves have fallen
    And skies turned grey.
  • On behalf of her love
    She no longer sleeps
    Life had no longer meaning
    Nothing to make her stay
    She sold her soul away
    • The Promise, written by Sharon den Adel
  • I made a promise to revenge his soul in time
    I'll make them bleed down at my feet
    • The Promise
  • The Earth is our mother
    She gives and she takes
    She puts us to sleep and
    In her light we'll awake.
    • Neverending Story, written by Sharon den Adel
  • We'll all be forgotten
    There's no endless fame
    But everything we do
    Is never in vain
    • Neverending Story
  • We're part of a story, part of a tale
    Sometimes beautiful and sometimes insane
    No one remembers how it began.
    • Neverending Story
  • Please awake
    And see the truth
    He can only be
    If you believe what he tells you
    Remember who you are
    What you stand for
    And there will always be a way
    • Deceiver of Fools, written by Sharon den Adel
  • In my heart there is a place
    In my heart there is a trace
    Of a small fire burning
    A sheltering ray shines through this night
    Although it's small, it's bright
    But darkness is lurking
    • Deceiver of Fools
  • Don't you die on me
    You haven't made your peace
    Live life, breathe, breathe
    • Dark Wings, written by Sharon den Adel
  • Unicorns appear in her sight
    The fireflies lead her trough these woods at night
    In search of the legendary amulet
    And it's secret
    In the big oak there is a door
    Which will lead her
    To the wizard shore
    And she'll ask him
    For the wind to sail her home
    To the world where she belongs
    • World of Make Believe, written by Sharon den Adel
  • All my thoughts are with you forever,
    until the day we'll be back together.
    • Bittersweet, written by Sharon den Adel

The Silent Force (2004)[edit]

  • See who I am,
    Break through the surface.
    Reach for my hand,
    Let's show them that we can
    Free our minds and find a way.
    The world is in our hands,
    This is not the end.
    • See Who I Am
  • Fear is withering the soul
    At the point of no return.
    We must be the change we wish to see.
    • See Who I Am
  • We just can't stop believing
    Because we have to try.
    We can rise above their truth and their lies.
Stand my ground, I won't give in
No more denying, I've got to face it
Won't close my eyes
and hide the truth inside
If I don't make it, someone else will
  • Stand my ground, I won't give in
    No more denying, I've got to face it
    Won't close my eyes and hide the truth inside
    If I don't make it, someone else will
    Stand my ground
  • Sparkling angel
    I believe
    You are my saviour
    In my time of need
  • Together in all these memories
    I see your smile
    All the memories I hold dear
    Darling you know I love you till the end of time
  • I'll find you somewhere
    I'll keep on trying
    Until my dying day
    • Somewhere

The Heart of Everything (2007)[edit]

  • I, I've been waiting for someone like you
    But now you are slipping away
  • Would you mind if I killed you?
    Would you mind if I tried to?
    • What Have You Done
  • It tears me apart that you will never know but I have to let go.
  • Open up your eyes
    Save yourself from fading away now, don't let it go
    Open up your eyes
    See what you've become, don't sacrifice
    It's truly the heart of everything
    • The Heart of Everything
  • So many dreams were broken and so much was sacrificed
    Was it worth the ones we loved and had to leave behind?
    So many years have past, who are the noble and the wise?
    Will all our sins be justified?
  • All around me I see danger
    And it's closing in on me
    Every second I can hear it breathing
    I can't stand the fear inside me
    Cause it's leading me astray
    And it will be my ending
    • Final Destination
  • Don't tear me down for all I need
    Make my heart a better place
Is it a sin to seek the truth, the truth beneath the rose?
  • Give me strength to face the truth, the doubt within my soul
    No longer I can justify the bloodshed in his name
    Is it a sin to seek the truth, the truth beneath the rose?
    Pray with me so I will find the gate to Heaven's door
    • The Truth Beneath the Rose
  • Blinded to see the cruelty of the beast
    It is the darker side of me
    The veil of my dreams deceived all I have seen
    • The Truth Beneath the Rose
  • Pray for me cause I have lost my faith in holy wars
    Is paradise denied to me cause I can't take no more
    Has darkness taken over me, consumed my mortal soul
    All my virtues sacrificed, can Heaven be so cruel?
    • The Truth Beneath the Rose

The Unforgiving (2011)[edit]

  • Oh, some may call it a curse
    A life like mine
    But others, a blessing

  • No more fear ‘cause I’m getting closer now
    So unreal but I like it anyhow

    • Faster
You can't live without the fire

It's the only thing you know
You'll embrace it and never walk away
  • You can't live without the fire

Hydra (2013)[edit]
