Track Name: Leave the curtains down
leave the curtains down


you left a souvenir in my mood

how is it possible..you made me feel this good

this sweetness of yours that can cheer me up

that’s how it’s going to stay

cuz your eyes can say

all that can be said


can you feel me from afar in the night

a glimpse is all it takes when your heart is torn apart

that innocence of yours that i’m looking for

i didn’t get it right…at first but this just might

be all that can be said


this world might fall apart

and i may lose my grip

i just want you by my side

and when i see you again

just leave the curtains down


there’s still left the scent of you in my mood

this picture of yours..it will be my doom

i keep on playing in my favourite tune

that’s how it’s going to stay

cuz your abscence can say

all that can be said
Track Name: Soaking wet
soaking wet


the sun just came out

there was no doubt

it left no clues


and yeah we still believe

the sun is a farce

to overshadow the rain


all i need is some advice

cuz we’re all soaking wet

when we put ourselfs to bed

and i fall asleep as i wonder how you feel


and i’ll seek you out

in the deep wild woods

if you call out my name


i’ll carry you out to the place

wherer we can smile

rest and be loved
Track Name: The might of a crowd
the might of a crowd


i saw it from a rooftop

the might of a crowd

but you can’t be happy

with your enemy’s eye on your back


but the wild winds keep their silence

peaceful in their beds

yea the wild winds keep their silence

tonight


my luck is pleased today

but i fear his anger

and before the word was thought

a thousand voices called


you brought a future

but you took the moment

take back your lovely present

for i can see a torch

burn
Track Name: The wasteland is full of gold
the wasteland is full of gold


followed a glitter rabbit

down by the neon lights

never let one eye drift away


it taught me a lesson that night

the wasteland is full of gold my friend

never let your hands get full of grief


cuz in the end

you just want

someone to hold you

in the night

when it’s oh so quiet

let me tell you

i shall never get tired again


the secrets that have been exposed

never ever healed a thing

never reveal an open wound


oh and when it’s oh so cold

please just leave your jackets on

and please don’t try to shoot the birds away


still silence that won’t move

still people standing like walls

to the asphalt by my feet

like a rainstorm that won’t bloom

like a whisper singing about noise

i will try and try til i go down

to turn the rainstorm into noise
Track Name: A hole in a concrete wall
a hole in a wall of concrete


you left a hole

in my wall of concrete

the light flew in

but all i hear is the echo

of your voice

sayin i’m afraid to die


and all the tears

let me think i can’t swim

tryin to breath

but all i breath is ashes

i can’t see sayin goodbye to me


and i lock my door to keep you inside

i still see you everywhere

and that’s all that you left while i try to forget

the fact that you are gone.-


with time they say

that it will heal

but they also say that the world keeps turning

while i am stuck in that single second
Track Name: Julia
julia


put your car keys by your bed

because soon while the sky is red

you’ll have that drive with your engines on

when your world has said what can be said


ooh..

julia julia julia

do you know where you want to be

julia julia julia

tell me where you need to be


rivers wait and hills and frozen dreams

melt them down with rapture and desire

don’t get distracted in that storm

with your inner eye so wide awake


that well trained routine that wears one down

how can you shine through that with grace

and your smile beneath commercial cheer

i’m glad that i didn’t sleep that through
Track Name: Burn
burn


it began with a thought

that has been easily caught

pretending not to see

breathing in counting to three


yeah you’re still beside him

with your face so grim

keep your good eye closed

with fears self imposed


with your head in your books

while your fantasy cooks

something hard to swallow

something hard to admit


yes it began with a thought

that has been easily caught


please just burn everything down

you have to learn

and leave this town

please just burn everything down

take that turn

don’t stay around

and please just burn

everything down


it began with a door

and your best friend is a whore

and the sound that she made

the love started to fade


yes it cut like a knife

and yet you are still alive

keep your good eye closed

with fears self-imposed


with your head full of rage

while you’re turning that page

it’s so hard to understand

it’s so hard to stand


yes it began with a door

and your best friend is a whore
Track Name: Bridge across time
bridge across time


i try not to be distracted from your perfume

while my head drift through the smoke in this room

my thoughts are lit up for display

in the center of a stage i act it out

for you to take away


i have only few words to say

while my eyes drift on your shiny skin

i can still hear that song

so clear in my mind it plays all over

like a bridge across time


i have only four stops before home

and the rain on the streets shine so bright like chrome

blinding my already tired eyes

i can still hear that voice

it whispers a song like a bridge across time
Track Name: This night might be cruel
this night might be cruel


oh my head is gettin full of this

tryin to avoid and to resist

but it’s hopeless, your’re cold as


ice that i rub on my heart

i can think of better things to start

but you’re restless, i guess


like

the night, it just might be good to us

and this night it just might be cruel

if we ever find out how it’s supposed to be

will i be prepared for this night?


so i suggest that we start to confess

our sins though there’s no one to impress

i fear, my dear


so i try to be a cavalier

although it seems so crystal clear

you’re restless and cold as

the night it just might be good to us

…………………….

and we just don’t know

no matter how many miles we go

there’s only one thing to be sure

the streets behind us will start to

blur


and the night it just might be good to us
Track Name: Anchor of defeat
anchor of defeat


someday this will hunt me down

i’m certain,but that doesn’t count

i’m not big in demand, and i will try to keep up

with my failures on my feet, like an anchor of defeat


this wounds you’ve caused

makes this feel like home

but where have you gone

who tries to drag you down

they will sell you things

keep you for their gold

you cannot do without

your anchor of defeat


i will wear my sins with all my pride

on my head like a crown in to this tide

with no thoughts of yesterday

and i will try to take a stand

not believing every phrase

trying to keep myself amazed
