I dreamed to be an angel now I fall with torn and broken wings lacerated by the failure of my dreams
2.
silent I’ve been for all these years no one to speak with, no one to see I live into illusions, I live only in dreams lonely I’ve been for all these years lightly your tears have broken my dreams lightly your hands gave light to my life but lighltly your tears have broken my dreams a night for illusions, a night for your fears close to my heart just for a second close to my heart then fallen apart lightly your tears have broken my dreams lightly your hands gave light to my life

now it starts all again this suffering, this pain I’m loosing power over words all my thoughts are becoming frail I’m loosing strenght from my veins I see the world through water veils I feel I’m going under the sound of waves is no longer ending this decay (slowly) flowing away all your love so many times held me here by your side your hands, your eyes for all these days a warm embrace whenever I cried crystal winged words falling dead collapsing the sense of whatever I said “I don’t think two people could have been happier than we have been”

earth and water unify destinies meet and entwine a woman, of melancholy fair a girl, of white pain frail empty canvas of never ending waves erasing signs, erasing lives time is silk here, passing time as everything is vanishing in silence write on water, words drowning in a thousand oceans words from letters to no one words of tales from the sea words are falling, disappearing only one remains the sea . . .
5.
all my lost memories are here inside empty houses, on hidden tears I could not see another face for you I could not feel another love for you so many years slept inside of me I could not know who who you could be precious fragments fall from your eyes now I remember that day, that sad presage if you could only understand my tears look deep inside my eyes and see all my fears ...
6.
sea veils upon my eyes (I’m) floating and swaying, inside water dreams hearing soundless sea’s lullabies silent voices carried by the streams all this sea over me all these dreams inside of me silent voices carried by the streams I’m moving on you, over your flesh lightly caressed by the flow absorbed and lost ... entering the voicelessness of the dream

I’ve never thought about this loneliness never thought about these empty rooms my days should have ceased before yours I was not prepared for all this emptiness everything was like I should miss before you everything was like I should be part of the absence, the absence that now fills every hour old and exhausted with no breath no one listens my silence but all is vane, all is useless it’s only me waiting for deat

one by one my istants the heart bleeds the heart falls drop by drop then sometimes cries no sound, vague impressions of space length, time your ivory face, your ivory white face your lips, very soflty all eyes and then, again. Then, again we leave hand in hand no one can hear me I could suffocate
9.
I awake in the night no fright, no fear no ghost is here silent is my cry then I see her face solemn in it’s grace on her knees, by my bed her hands, light, on me she lays down, with me I fall asleep, again and I awake, again on my breast, the pain

when there's no unconsciousness when there are no faeryhair faeries my romantic violence wants me frail sadness can become light perversion only dazzling fire that burns in stakes lighting unquiet born souls (needing dark rest) the damned passions all the blood that runs in all the time that is given making us invisible to the eyes the sky is darkening before of a real sunset we are shadows, look at us with anger because we have no more heart inside, eternal sleeps, we fly immortal now our screams are nothing but a sing there are words that do not need voice, though mute they scream

sfiorarsi di pelle, di candore questo silenzio è già dolore violenza d’istinti, desiderio morir dei peccati, morire mio osare di gesti di premure bianche di luna le mie paure son lacrime lievi nell’acqua dei fossi

about

Romantic, melancholic, seductive. Acoustic, ethereal, lush. Sensual, beautiful and stirring. All are good words to describe The Hours' passionate search through the soul, an album inspired by the lifes and books of great authors. The Italian due of Viola and Federico create graceful and elegant music for fans of Dark Folk and Ethereal soundscapes. All My Faith Lost's second album quickly follows their 2005 debut on Cold Meat Industry. The album is slow and tranquil, featuring male and female vocals which serve as instruments contributing to the soundscape of acoustic guitar, flute, piano, violin, and cello. All My Faith Lost... unlock a beautifully tender and delicate world, a view into the soul of delicate seduction.

"Federico and Viola, who are both responsible for the lyrical content, also share the lead vocal duties. The vocals are used like instruments, in that they are whispered and subdued, so that the narrative becomes secondary to the texture and tone. The synths are used to fill out the overall sound, but the acoustic guitar, flute, piano, violin, and viola are the true driving forces. This CD is for times of solitude and quiet introspection that will take you far away from the madding crowd." VIRUS MAGAZINE
