NO SECRETS LYRICS

"I'll Remember You"

It has been so long since we have talked
I hope that things are still the same
hoping they will never change
cause what we had can't be replaced
don't let our memories fade away
keep me in your heart for always

You made me believe
that I can do almost anything
stood right by me
through the tears through everything

I'll remember you,
and baby that's forever true
you're the one that I'll always miss
never thought it would feel like this
I'll be there for you,
no matter what you're goin' through
in my heart you'll always be, forever baby
I'll remember you

I promise you I won't forget the times we shared, the tears we cried
You'll always be the sun in my sky
It may be fate that brings us back to meet again someday
Even though we go seprate ways

You made me believe
that I can do almost anything
You stood right by me
through the tears through everything

I'll remember yooooou,
and baby that's forever true
you're the one that I'll always miss
never thought it would feel like this
I'll be there for yooooou,
no matter what your goin' through
in my heart you'll always be, forever baby
I'll remember you

If the day should come when you need someone
(you know that i'll follow)
I will be there
Don't ever let there
be a doubt in your mind
'cause I'll remember you, you

I'll remember you,
and baby that's forever true
you're the one that I'll always miss
never thought it would feel like this
I'll be there for you,
no matter what your goin' through
in my heart you'll always be, forever baby
I'll remember you

Forever baby, I'll remember you

The song "Scarlet Tide" By Alison Krauss and Union Station. The line I have in bold reminds me of when Alexandra had to make the decision to stay with Alexei in Tobolsk, or leave with Nicky. 
And then the whole widow and bride thing also reminds me of Alexandra and her Mother-in-law.

Well I recall his parting words
Must I accept his fate
Or take myself far from this place

I thought I heard a black bell toll
A little bird did sing
Man has no choice
When he wants every thing

We'll rise above the scarlet tide
That trickles down through the mountain
And separates the widow from the bride

Man goes beyond his own decision
Gets caught up in the mechanism
Of swindlers who act like kings
And brokers who break everything
The dark of night was swiftly fading
Close to the dawn of day
Why would I want him just to lose him again

We'll rise above the scarlet tide
That trickles down through the mountain
And separates the widow from the bride

The other day at work I heard the song "Fields of Gold" by Sting (I hadn't heard it in so long that I'd almost forgotten it existed) and I thought about the Romanovs for the rest of the day:

Fields of Gold by Sting

You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Among the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold

So she took her love for to gaze awhile
Among the fields of barley
In his arms she fell as her hair came down
Among the fields of gold

Will you stay with me, will you be my love
Among the fields of barley
And you can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold

I never made promises lightly
And there have been some that I've broken
But I swear in the days still left
We will walk in fields of gold
We'll walk in fields of gold

Many years have passed since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
As you lie in fields of gold

You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Among the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold

I agree that does remind you of the Romanovs, and actually of many tragic things. I have always loved that song, altough I actually have never heard the Sting Version. I know it through the Eva Cassidy version. I always thought it fitted that Eva Cassidy should sing that, given her tragic death, but thanks for applying it to the Romanovs. It is a beautiful song. For any body who is a figure skating fan ( albeit awhile ago) in 2000-2002 or about Michelle Kwan skated to this song. That's how I first heard it and really came to like it. Anyway, it is such a beautiful song, such a nostalgic song.

This is an opera song I have titled Dido's Lament by Henry Purcell.  : )

When I am laid, am laid in earth, may my wrongs create
No trouble, no trouble in, in thy breast.
When I am laid, am laid in earth, may my wrongs create
No trouble, no trouble in, in thy breast.
Remember me, remember me, but ah!
Forget my fate.
Remember me, but ah!
Forget my fate.
Remember me, remember me, but ah!
Forget my fate.
Remember me, but ah!
Forget my fate.

Hi All

I brought a record called 'The Day Anastasia Romanoff Died' (Paul Ryan, 1976) off ebay for no better reason than the title of the song. I tried to find out about it, but I could find nothing, there were only about five mentions of it spread over the whole of Google!

Anyway, I played it today and had it converted to MP3, I'm listeneing to it now and it's very good, very dramatic. The lyrics are vaguely nonseical, as most song lyrics are, but I quite like them despite being clueless as to what they mean by Anastasia's 'magic'. I transcribed the lyrics, I thought they might be interesting to my fellow Romanovs buffs! The second verse is hard to hear, so I am not sure if I've got it done right.

I'd be very interested to see if anyone else has heard of this song, it seems to be something of an enigma!

Twelve ‘o’ clock they came to take you,
Came to wake you for your final dream.
Yellow ribbon, coat of satin,
Soaked in red, you play your final scene.
But they would not take your smile,
And they would not close your eyes.

Oh, sweet Anastasia Romanoff
There is nothing more to hear.

Anastasia! Sleep my child,
Oh you had a magic, to drive them wild.
Anastasia! Do not cry,
The lights went out the day you died,
And I always cried the day that Anastasia Romanoff died.

Twisting on an empty spiral
Emptying the twilight of your years.
Eyes that sparkle life, a thousand jewels,
A thousand fools that have no tears.
But they could not take your smile
And they would not close your eyes.

Sweet Anastasia Romanoff
There is nothing more to hear.

Anastasia! Sleep my child,
Oh you had a magic to drive them wild.
Anastasia! Do not cry,
The lights went out the day you died,
And I always cried the day that Anastasia Romanoff died.

[Instrumental]

Anastasia! Sleep my child,
Oh you had the magic to drive them wild.
Anastasia! Do not cry,
The lights went out the day you died
And I always cried the day that Anastasia Romanoff died.
It's not fair!

Wow. I've never heard of this song before. It sounds interesting! I tried to look for something about it but came back with nothing! I wish I could hear it.
"Господь им дал дар по молитвам их размягчать окаменелые наши сердца за их страдания..Мне думается, что если люди будут молиться Царской Cемье, оттают сердца с Божией помощью."

I could probably email you the file if you want it, it would be quite big but I'd imagine it would fit in as an attatchment. If you would like me to send it to you, PM me with your email.

Thanks heaps Rachael! This is a really cool song. I heard some differences in the lyrics that you said you couldn't hear too well. Here's what I got:



Twelve o’clock they came to take you,
Came to wake you for your final dream.
Yellow ribbon, coat of satin,
Soaked in red, you play your final scene.
But they would not take your smile,
And they would not close your eyes.

Oh, sweet Anastasia Romanoff
There is nothing more to fear.

Anastasia! Sleep my child,
Oh you had a magic, to drive them wild.
Anastasia! Do not cry,
The lights went out the day you died,
And I always cried the day that Anastasia Romanoff died.

Twisting on an empty spiral
Ending in the twilight of your years.
Eyes that sparkle life, a thousand jewels,
A thousand fools that have no tears.
But they could not take your smile
And they would not close your eyes.

Sweet Anastasia Romanoff
There is nothing more to fear.

Anastasia! Sleep my child,
Oh you had a magic to drive them wild.
Anastasia! Do not cry,
The lights went out the day you died,
And I always cried the day that Anastasia Romanoff died.

Anastasia! Sleep my child,
Oh you had the magic to drive them wild.

The lights went out the day you died
And I always cried the day that Anastasia Romanoff died.

i all ways thought that the 'Remember' Song by Josh Groban for the movie Troy
reminds me of the Romanovs.. or for anybody i hold dear to my heart.

"Remember, I will still be here
As long as you hold me, in your memory

Remember, when your dreams have ended
Time can be transcended
Just remember me

I am the one star that keeps burning, so brightly,
It is the last light, to fade into the rising sun

I'm with you
Whenever you tell, my story
For I am all I've done

Remember, I will still be here
As long as you hold me, in your memory
Remember me

I am the one voice in the cold wind, that whispers
And if you listen, you'll hear me call across the sky

As long as I still can reach out, and touch you
Then I will never die

Remember, I'll never leave you
If you will only
Remember me

Remember me...

Remember, I will still be here
As long as you hold me
In your memory

Remember, when your dreams have ended
Time can be transcended
I live forever
Remember me

Remember me
Remember... me..."
So keep me awake for every moment
Give us more time to be this way
We can't stay like this forever
But I can have you next to me today

"Bless the Child" by Nightwish. Could really apply to any of the Romanovs, but it makes me think of both Nicholas and Alexandra in particular:

I was born amidst the purple waterfalls.
I was weak, yet not unblessed.
Dead to the world. Alive for the journey.
One night I dreamt a white rose withering,
a newborn drowning a lifetime loneliness.
I dreamt all my future. Relived my past.
I witnessed the beauty of the beast"

Where have all the feelings gone?
Why has all the laughter ceased?

Why am I loved only when I'm gone?
Gone back in time to bless the child
Think of me long enough to make a memory
Come bless the child one more time

How can I ever feel again?
Given the chance would I return?

I've never felt so alone in my life
As I drank from a cup which was counting my time
There's a poison drop in this cup of Man
To drink it is to follow the left hand path

"Where have all the feelings gone?
Why is the deadliest sin - to love as I loved you?
Now unblessed, homesick in time,
soon to be freed from care, from human pain.
My tale is the most bitter truth:
Time pays us but with earth & dust, and a dark, silent grave.
Remember, my child: Without innocence the cross is only iron,
hope is only an illusion & Ocean Soul's nothing but a name...

The Child bless thee & keep thee forever"

Shadow of Love
By,Celine Dion

(This song made me think about the girls in captivity.)

I live my life like a runaway
I hide my dreams in a special place
I'm waiting here for my prince to come
To save me from the darkness

I count the nights
I count the days,the ways
Don't wanna fight it'd be in vain
So in vain

I can run but I can't hide
It's because
I'm livin' in the shadow of love
To me you are the only one
That I dream of
'Cause I'm livin' in the shadow of love

Your love surrounds me it's
Everywhere
It is my shelter,it is my air
A moon eclipsing a burning sun
Making shade just for me

For you I'd wait forever babee
And a day
To be there if your love
Should come
My way

I can run but I can't hide
It's because
I'm livin' in the shadow of love
To me you are the only one
That I dream of
'Cause I'm livin' in the shadow of love

Too many nights too many days
I've hidden from the sun
And though I've tried to breakaway
Your hold on me's just too strong
I'm livin' in the shadow of love

I can run but I can't hide
It's because
I'm livin' in the shadow of love
To me you are the only one
That I dream of
'Cause I'm livin' in the shadow of love

To me you are the only one
I dream of
'Cause I'm livin' in the shadow of love

The shadow of love
The shadow of love

I can run but I can't hide
It's because
I'm livin' in the shadow of love
To me you are the only one
That I dream of
'Cause I'm livin' in the shadow of love



My Love
By,Celine Dion.

(made my think of Nicholas and Alexandra.)

My love we have seen it all
The endless confession
The rise & fall

As fragile as a child
But lately I'm sorry
I can't hold a smile

But I stand tall to get by
No matter how hard
I try to hide
How did you know I'd take the time for you?
Did you know that I could see you through?
How did you know that I would play the part?
I must have made it clear right from the start

My love can you give me strength?
Some how I forgot how to ease my pain
I know I'm right where I belong
But Somethin for nothin never proved me wrong

But I stand tall to get by
No matter how hard
I try to hide
How did you know I'd take the time for you?
Did you know that I could see you through?
How did you know that I would play the part?
I must have made it clear right from the start

See I would share my whole life with you
Would you do the same for me?
I would give all I am to you
Would you do the same for me?

Yes I'll stand tall to get by
No matter how hard I try to hide
You could you see?
I could break
Did you notice all my mistakes?
There were times that I felt you read my mind
How did you know I'd take the time for you?
And did you know that I could see you through?
Did you know that I would play that part?
I know I made it clear right from the start....

i have to agree on both of those songs by Celine...
Celine has a sad but amazing vice that makes me think always of the Romanovs!!

thanks for posting that!

For nicholas and Alexandra
So Close - John McLaughin

You’re in my arms
And all the world is calm
The music playing on for only two
So close together
And when I’m with you
So close to feeling alive

A life goes by
Romantic dreams will stop
So I bid mine goodbye and never knew
So close was waiting, waiting here with you
And now forever I know
All that I wanted to hold you
[So Close lyrics on http://www.metrolyrics.com]

So close

So close to reaching that famous happy end
Almost believing this was not pretend
And now you’re beside me and look how far we’ve come
So far we are so close

How could I face the faceless days
If I should lose you now?
We’re so close
To reaching that famous happy end
And almost believing this was not pretend
Let’s go on dreaming for we know we are
So close
So close
And still so far
So keep me awake for every moment
Give us more time to be this way
We can't stay like this forever
But I can have you next to me today
. Josh Groban .
