Ayreon - Beneath The Waves Lyrics




[Beneath The Waves]

[Daniel Gildenlöw:]
The water breaks the golden sunrays
Silver dances on the wave
But a memory...

I often dream about the old days
Playing hide and seek within the caves
But a memory...

[Bob Catley:]
I still feel the rising tides embrace me
Carrying me to a place unknown
But a memory...

I remember all the love they gave me
In this fluid world we call our home
But a memory...

[Anneke van Giersbergen, Floor Jansen:] Beneath the waves we were invincible
[Floor Jansen:] In a world without frontiers
[Anneke van Giersbergen:] World without walls
[Anneke van Giersbergen, Floor Jansen:] Beneath the waves we were inseparable
[Floor Jansen:] In a world without walls

[Steve Lee:]
Faces of cerulean oceans
Mirroring stars and sable skies
But a memory...

How I miss the sense of sweet emotions
Of a world so pure, devoid of cries
Blind a memory...

[Jorn Lande:] Beneath the waves we were unbeatable
[Floor Jansen:] In the silence of the sea;
[Jorn Lande:] In a world without frontiers
[Floor Jansen:] World without walls
[Jorn Lande:] Beneath the waves we were untouchable
[Floor Jansen:] In the kingdom of the free;
[Jorn Lande:] In a world without walls

[Steve Lee:] Beneath the waves we were invincible
[Floor Jansen:] In the silence of the sea;
[Steve Lee:] In a world without frontiers
[Floor Jansen:] World without walls
[Steve Lee:] Beneath the waves we were inseparable
[Floor Jansen:] In the kingdom of the free;
[Steve Lee:] In a world without walls

[Face The Facts]

[Hansi Kursch, Anneke van Giersbergen, Floor Jansen:]
Face the facts, there is no way back
Arise! It's time to act
Face the acts, our future is black
Our eyes were on the wrong track [x3]

[But A Memory...]

[Tom Englund:]
Water breaks the golden sunrays
Silver dances on the wave
But a memory...

I often dream about the old days
Playing hide and seek within the caves
But a memory...

[World Without Walls]

[Jorn Lande:] Beneath the waves we were unbeatable
[Floor Jansen:] In the silence of the sea
[Jorn Lande:] In a world without frontiers
[Floor Jansen:] World without walls
[Jorn Lande:] Beneath the waves we were untouchable
[Floor Jansen:] In our kingdom of the free
[Jorn Lande:] In a world without walls
[Floor Jansen:] World without walls
[Jorn Lande:] Beneath the waves we were invincible
[Floor Jansen:] In the silence of the sea
[Jorn Lande:] In a world without frontiers
Beneath the waves we were inseparable
[Floor Jansen:] In our kingdom of the free
[Jorn Lande:] In a world without walls

Ayreon Beneath The Waves Comments
  1. hp08nk14

    Even though it is beneath the waves and not on the waves. I cannot help but picture the 6:30-7:30 part as floor and jørn standing at the stern of i viking ship motivating the sailors to new horizons

  2. Tai Yang

    Once a year I reaturn and give myself to this masterpeace. It makes me feel so much different emotions and touch my heart

  3. Io Io

    Lyrics in italiano:

    [1. Tra le onde]

    L'acqua diffrange i dorati raggi solari
    un danza argentata tra le onde
    ma un ricordo

    Spesso sogno dei vecchi raggi
    che giocano a nascondino nella grotta
    ma un ricordo

    Sento ancora la marea abbracciarmi
    trasportarmi in un luogo sconosciuto
    ma un ricordo

    Ricordo tutto l'amore che mi hanno dato
    in questo fluido mondo che chiamiamo casa
    ma un ricordo

    Tra le onde eravamo invincibili
    in un mondo senza frontiere
    un mondo senza mura
    tra le onde eravamo inseparabili
    in un mondo senza mura

    Facce di oceani blu
    stelle fiflettenti e cieli scuri
    Ma un ricordo

    Quanto mi manca il senso delle dolci emozioni
    di un mondo così puro, privo di grida
    accecare un ricordo

    Tra le onde eravamo imbattibili
    nel silenzio del mare
    In un mondo senza frontiere
    mondo senza queste mura
    tra le onde eravamo intoccabili
    nel regno della libertà
    in un mondo senza mura

    Tra le onde eravamo invincibili
    nel silenzio del mare
    in un mondo senza frontiere
    un mondo senza mura
    tra le onde eravamo inseparabili
    nel regno della libertà
    in un mondo senza mura

    [2. Accetta la realtà]

    Accetta la realtà, non c'è modo di tornare indietro
    Sorgi! É ora di agire
    Accetta la realtà, il nostro futuro è nero
    I nostri occhi erano sulla pista sbagliata
    I nostri occhi erano sulla pista sbagliata
    I nostri occhi erano sulla pista sbagliata

    [3. Ma un ricordo...]

    Sento ancora la marea abbracciarmi
    trasportarmi in un luogo sconosciuto
    ma un ricordo

    Ricordo tutto l'amore che mi hanno dato
    in questo fluido mondo che chiamiamo casa
    ma un ricordo

    [4. Mondo senza mura]

    Tra le onde eravamo imbattibili
    nel silenzio del mare
    In un mondo senza frontiere
    mondo senza queste mura
    tra le onde eravamo intoccabili
    nel regno della libertà
    in un mondo senza mura
    Tra le onde eravamo invincibili
    nel silenzio del mare
    in un mondo senza frontiere
    un mondo senza mura
    tra le onde eravamo inseparabili
    nel regno della libertà
    in un mondo senza mura

    Daniel Gildenlow from the mighty Pain Of Salvation!!

  5. Rodrigo Martins

    Thank you for my overnight bus trips listening 4+ Ayreon albuns in a row <3

  6. Franco Lumovich

    2:21 Floor's voice so sexy

  7. Victor Titov

    from 7:36 all the way to the end, I hear crowbar-hits-metal sound from Hlaf-life game. I wonder if it's the actual sound from the game?

    Gordon Freeman

    It’s possible since Valve used a lot of stock sounds in their games.

  8. The-Metal-Life

    Arjen my friend this is just as timeless today was it was 11 years ago.. what a truly masterful composition of sound..

  9. Metaller2011

    One of the Best!

  10. Rvssel VVV

    Steve Lee is very much alive in this song!

    Portuguese Lyrics ;-)

    Sob as Ondas

    [De volta ao Planeta Y, os Eternos continuam a relembrar seu passado, mas logo vem a enfrentar a sua dura situação.]

    [Ato I - Sob as Ondas]

    [Daniel Gildenlöw:]
    A água quebra os raios dourados do sol
    Prata dança sobre as ondas
    Somente uma memória...

    Eu freqüentemente sonho sobre os velhos tempos
    Brincando de esconde-esconde dentro das cavernas
    Somente uma memória...

    [Bob Catley:]
    Eu ainda sinto as crescentes marés me abraçando
    Me carregando a um lugar desconhecido
    Somente uma memória...

    Lembro-me de todo o amor que eles me deram
    Neste mundo fluido que chamamos de nossa casa
    Somente uma memória ...

    [Anneke van Giersbergen, Floor Jansen:] Sob as ondas éramos invencíveis
    [Anneke van Giersbergen:] Em um mundo sem fronteiras
    [Floor Jansen:] Mundo sem muralhas
    [Anneke van Giersbergen, Floor Jansen:] Sob as ondas éramos inseparáveis
    [Floor Jansen:] Em um mundo sem muralhas

    [Steve Lee:]
    Rostos de oceanos cerúleo
    refletindo estrelas e céus escuros
    Somente uma memória...

    Como sinto falta do sentimento de doces emoções
    De um mundo tão puro, desprovido de choros
    Somente uma memória...

    [Jorn Lande:] Sob as ondas éramos imbatíveis
    [Floor Jansen:] No silêncio do mar
    [Jorn Lande:] Em um mundo sem fronteiras
    [Floor Jansen:] Mundo sem muralhas
    [Jorn Lande:] Sob as ondas éramos intocáveis
    [Floor Jansen:] No reino dos livres
    [Jorn Lande:] Em um mundo sem muralhas

    [Steve Lee:] Sob as ondas éramos invencíveis
    [Floor Jansen:] No silêncio do mar
    [Steve Lee:] Em um mundo sem fronteiras
    [Floor Jansen:] Mundo sem paredes
    [Steve Lee:] Sob as ondas éramos inseparáveis
    [Floor Jansen:] No reino dos livres
    [Steve Lee:] Em um mundo sem muralhas

    [Ato II - Encarem os fatos]

    [Hansi Kursch, Anneke van Giersbergen, Floor Jansen:]
    Encare os fatos, não há como voltar
    Levante-se! É hora de agir
    Encare os atos, o nosso futuro é negro
    Nossos olhos estavam no caminho errado [x3]

    [Ato III - Somente uma memória...]

    [Tom Englund:]
    A água quebra os raios dourados do sol
    Prata dança sobre as ondas
    Somente uma memória...

    Eu freqüentemente sonho sobre os velhos tempos
    Brincando de esconde-esconde dentro das cavernas
    Somente uma memória...

    [Ato IV - Mundo sem Muralhas]

    [Jorn Lande:] Sob as ondas que nós fomos imbatíveis
    [Floor Jansen:] No silêncio do mar
    [Jorn Lande:] Em um mundo sem fronteiras
    [Floor Jansen:] Em um mundo sem muralhas
    [Jorn Lande:] Sob as ondas eramos intocáveis
    [Floor Jansen:] No reino dos livres
    [Jorn Lande:] Em um mundo sem muralhas
    [Floor Jansen:] Mundo sem paredes
    [Jorn Lande:] Sob as ondas que nós fomos imbatíveis
    [Floor Jansen:] No silêncio do mar
    [Jorn Lande:] Em um mundo sem fronteiras
    Sob as ondas eramos intocáveis
    [Floor Jansen:] No reino dos livres
    [Jorn Lande:] Em um mundo sem muralhas

    [Ato V - A realidade sangra]

    (Instrumental)

    Rodrigo Martins

    pq eu iria querer as letras em portugues?

  13. John Adams

    God this song always makes me cry

  14. Se1fD3struct1on

    I don't understand why Ayreon hasn't become more popular. with almost 80 amazing singer contributions over the course of 9 albums you'd think more people would catch on. but at the same time I'm thankful because it keeps Ayreon pure.

    SevenSevenSports Bagjump

    My opinion is this is due to the multiple platforms that musicians must publish which diversifies audiences ; thatban the fact that people gravitate singles instead of albums and are so spoikled for choice :-)

    X ATY

    As an Emerson Lake and Palmer fan since the 1970’s and long time “old” hard rock - symphonic metal “rusted” fan i only found out of Arjan recently. It was a revelation.

  15. sixstringmania

    Who plays this AMAZING solo ?????daamn!

    God

    Is Arjen this time. His sound is unique

  16. Guillermo Gruszka

    I imagine mermaids, gods of water and pure energy flowing. It takes me to an unexplicable place between planes.

  17. maulsoleu

    Luv it so much this song...When will we have a life performance of this album just like Human Equation?

  18. GaMizZ DrK

    Magical

  19. Russell maxwell

    I hope this makes it into the setlist next week!

  20. tyler baxley

    so Y is the name

  21. rubens castamann

    His art is heavenly!!!

  23. He. Re.

    Beautiful Song.
    Thx Arjen

  24. Sean Glover

    i hear hansi kursch!!

    quake 3 seven adam

    Kurdish !? You that pkk

  25. Alexander Skidanov

    6:30-7:30 is insane

    Branislav Popov

    Alexander Skidanov I don't know for other stuff. From this album my fav is definitively Luquid enternity. They were unbelievable!

    Alexander Skidanov

    Branislav Popov regarding liquid eternity I can't agree more, though that part with floor and jorn is way too short, and the rest of the song is not as good.

    Branislav Popov

    Alexander Skidanov Ok. When I think about epic vocal moments on album, one of first is that with Jørn and Floor, beside many others. Like Hansi in Fifth extinction or Jonas and Anneke in Waking dreams.

    Mare or stallion, There's far more inside

    Yes, but 5:07 is epic too.

    Branislav Popov

    Mare or stallion, There's far more inside Apsolutelly! 💪

  26. Thierry Petit

    a song , so might and so beautiul......the solo at 2.35  is a wave of amazing feeling!

  27. Robson Brito Leite

    Best song ever! At least while I'm listening to it! hahaha

  28. Thomas Semim Leme

    Thank you so much Arjen! :DDDD

  29. infernoCBR

    Of all Ayreon songs, this is the one I always return to and can safely say is my favorite. It's pretty simple, but the lyrics, vocals and melodies are emotional and impactful.

    Erka

    Even though I'm fairly new to Ayreon, I can't help but feel the same way. This the first one I listened to and I knew I had discovered something amazing right when I heard "Water breaks the golden sunrays"... There is something magic in that line which just resonates with me.

    thisusernamenowtaken

    Yesss! My favourite also, and finally full-length, unlike the music video edit! Goosebumps!

    Hooman Rasouli

    Age Of Shadows and Computer Eyes along with this are the only songs i really love from Ayreon.

    Donder

    This song can compete with bohemian Rhapsody.

    Franco Lumovich

    @Donder half Ayreon songs can compete with Bohemian Rhapsody

  30. Loïc Savidan

    Beautiful
