1. Galahad - The Hope

( Johansson / Gjerstad )

The day that he was born
His destiny was sealed
He would be the one
Saviour of the world

The wise men came and went
Everyone was sure
Eyes of royal blue
Hair of shiny gold
Skin of purest white

They brought him up as knight
Kept him safe from sin
Taught him to do good
And fight the enemy

When he was twenty-one
He left his home prepared
Grey as stainless steel
Red as running blood
White as purity

He had to stand above the world
He had to challenge one and all
He had to live a hero's life
Without a friend, no one to love
This was no sacrifice to him
'cause he was

Galahad – The man of God's choice
Galahad – The purest of them
Galahad – Dressed in white was
Galahad – Galahad
Galahad – His name was well-known
Galahad – He feared nobody
Galahad – In his quest to find the holy grail

They told him that he was the one
And he believed that it was true
He didn't know about the world
He had his faith and went along
This was no sacrifice to him
'cause he was

Galahad – The man of Gods choice
Galahad – The purest of them
Galahad – Dressed in white was
Galahad – Galahad
Galahad – His name was well-known
Galahad – He feared nobody
Galahad – In his quest to find the holy Grail

2. Somewhere - The Quest

( Johansson / Abrahamson / Wemmenlind / Norling / Hallgren )

As I'm striding forth
I know that this is destiny
I feel confident
And proud as anyone can be

I don’t know
Where the winds are taking me

But I’m quite sure
That the lord is there to see

If I see the light
There will be nothing sacrificed
No one will believe
The things played out before my eyes

Somewhere in the distance
I can hear the call
And I just can’t resist the fact
That the writing’s on the wall

Somewhere in the distance
There’s a quest assigned for me
And I just can’t resist that
It was always meant to be

As I move ahead
I feel the people suffering
But I cannot stop
My quest will salvage everything

I don’t know
Where the roads are taking me

But I’m not sure
If the lord is there to see

Shadows haunting me
I need to find a place to stay
Sun is going down
I hope the rays will lead my way

Somewhere in the distance
I can hear the call
And I just can’t resist the fact
That the writing’s on the wall

Somewhere in the distance
There’s a quest assigned for me
And I just can’t resist that
It was always meant to be

3. Happy - The Incident

( Johansson / Bergentz )

Seeing all the people
Really makes me wonder
Wasn't I the one
Who should be so happy

Hiding in a corner
Watching the young lady
Eyes of tropic water
Making me feel happy

Touching – Burning – Sweating
Doubting – Kissing...
Happy!

This is more the life
Of which I've been dreaming
Isn't every dream
A yearning to be happy

Wonder if I'm wrong
To feel the way I'm feeling
What is more important
Than to be just happy
...and I am!

4. Hunted - The Decision

( Johansson / Larsson )

The storm is getting closer now
I'm afraid, wonder where I am
I seem to lose my energy
Not sure I’m alone

For several days I've had this funny feeling
Somebody is watching me moving
I don't know if it's imagination
But I'm not gonna run
I'll face them right here
Don't care who they are

Hunted
All over the world
Everywhere I go, I've been
Wanted
Oh, leave me alone
Everywhere I go

I've been starving for at least a week now
I'm wet and tired, the wind's growing colder
Need to find a place where I can hide
Got to get my strength back

My eyes begin to fool my sight and judgement
Don't know what's real, not sure what is dream
Have to figure out why they wanna catch me
I'm innocent
I have done no harm
Still my whole life seems wasted

Hunted
All over the world
Everywhere I go, I've been
Wanted
Oh, please let me go
Everywhere I go

With great confidence they keep on chasing me
They dream about glory and pride
They won’t stop until they finally get me
After all these years

No matter what I do or what I have done
Nobody deserves what I've been through
They couldn't care less 'bout my pride or peace of mind
I've had enough
I will give them hell
They won't see tomorrow

Hunted
All over the world
Everywhere I go, I've been
Wanted
Please let me go
Everywhere I go

5. Morning Sun - The Battle

( Norling / Bergentz )

- Instrumental -

6. Loneliness - The Peace

( Johansson )

When the smoky skies have brightened
My eyes get clearer
When I see what I have done
I feel the tears

I have seen the peacefulness
I have felt the loneliness

Could it possibly be worth
All this wasting
I can see how only God
Would allow it

I have seen the peacefulness
I have felt the loneliness

Now I'm sure that I was chosen
For a reason
'cause I've been shown what can be done
By my own kind

I have seen the peacefulness
I have felt my loneliness
I have met my thoughtlessness
I have dealt with...
Me...

7. Never Alone - The Victory

( Johansson / Abrahamson / Hallgren )

What if I have touched the fire
Would I not have set myself ablaze
Maybe there’s a presence higher
That has always guided my ways

They said that you were always close to me
They taught me who was friend or enemy
Now I see that I can choose my destiny
'cause I am never alone

I have never compromised
The actions that I had to take
Now that I see through their lies
These were choices I was meant to make

They said that you were always close to me
They taught me who was friend or enemy
Now I know that I can choose my destiny
'cause I was never alone

When the evening reaches night
I can see a part of what I was
Morning break this painful sight
And I feel my change is not a loss

They said that you were always close to me
Now I’m certain of my own identity
I see that I can choose my destiny
'cause I am never alone

8. Coming Home - The Reward

( Johansson / Norling / Wemmenlind )

In a cavern beyond all senses
I've been keeping my fear
In a cavern with gates and fences
I've been hiding my tears

But some day the light will shine through
And the world will be open for me

Since the loss of the things I cared for
My dreams have shown me the way
The way of running, the way of hiding
The way of turning away

No reason for anger or hatred
As I'm facing the final crossroad

As I see it all through real eyes
I know that they were lying all the time
As I see it through a clear mind
I know where I'll be heading

No matter what people they tell me to do
I'm coming home
No matter what people they force me to do
I'm coming home

I see the light from a thousand miles away
There'll be no more turning back, no more retreat
The battle's over now and there's only one way to go
That is home

I'm coming home

No matter what people they force me to do

I'm coming home

Well, the cavern beyond all senses
That I fled to before
Is now a cavern with gates and fences
That won't be used any more

9. Vision Divine - The End

( Johansson / Abrahamson / Hallgren )

Am I seeing this through real eyes? The angels are descending onto me.

Somewhere in the distance, we could hear your call.

I hold my breath. Can this be real?

The truth is getting closer now, I don’t fear, choices I have made.

Brave young warrior, clad with passion, once a slave but now you’re free.

I see the light. Release my pain.

Let me see The Cup desired and I’ll happily give myself to god.

We will grant your wish Enlightened, it will end here.
We have seen what you have done, feel no fear.

I raise my head. I’m coming home.

I’m coming home.

10. Galahad - The Man

( Johansson / Gjerstad )

He had to master the unknown
He had to doubt what he was taught
He had to follow his own heart
And make a brand new deal with God
This was no sacrifice to him
'cause he was

Galahad – He made his own choice
Galahad – The bravest of them
Galahad – Only human
Galahad – Galahad
Galahad – Became a man
Galahad – He found himself
Galahad – In his quest to find the Holy Grail
