Track Name: The Box
The Box

I had a dream last night
You were running out of sight
On the sand beach was a treasure
A wooden box I could only measure
Was it daybreak or early dusk
Wind had the smell of ancient musk
As I came closer to the water
Here it was covered in feathers

Turned the key, lift it up
And opened it, and lit it up
Turned the key, lift it up
And opened it

Found your smile in the box
And a tree house too
Two weeks in New York
And a stick of glue, I wonder what it was for
Your heart’s in the box
And mine is there too
An old pair of socks
And a rendezvous, I wonder what is that for

I had a dream last night
You were smiling in delight
In the distance was a shadow
A dancing angel shooting an arrow
Looked like twilight or evenfall
Sea had the shade of lilac rose
As I came closer to the water
Here it was brilliant and covered in feathers

Turned the key and lift it up
And opened it and lit it up
Turned the key and lift it up
And opened it

Found your smile in the box
And a tree house too
Two weeks in New York
And a stick of glue, I wondered what it was for
Your heart’s in the box
And mine is there too
An old pair of socks
And a rendezvous, I wonder what is that for

Found your smile in the box
A tree house too
Two weeks in New York
A stick of glue
Your heart’s in the box
And mine is there too
An old pair of socks
And a secret rendezvous …

Put your smile in the box
Two weeks in New York
And an old pair of socks
Put your smile in the box
Two weeks in New York
An old pair of socks

Oh your smile, your heart, my heart

I wonder…
Track Name: Crying In The Rain
Crying in the rain

I'll never let you see
The way my broken heart is hurting me
I've got my pride and I know how to hide
All the sorrow and pain
I'll do my crying in the rain

If I wait for stormy skies
You won't know the rain from the tears in my eyes
You'll never know that I still love you so
Though the heartaches remain
I'll do my crying in the rain

Raindrops falling from heaven
Could never take away my misery
But since we're not together
I pray for stormy weather
To hide these tears I hope you'll never see

But since we're not together
I pray for stormy weather
To hide these tears I hope you'll never see

Someday when my crying's done
I'm gonna wear a smile and walk in the sun
I may be a fool but till then darling you'll
Never see me complain
I'll do my crying in the rain

I'll do my crying in the rain
I'll do my crying in the rain
Track Name: Ain't Coming Back
Ain’t Coming Back

I’ve thrown away the letters
The pictures, the songs, all treasures

This ain’t going right, there’s way too much fight
This ain’t looking right, let’s call it a night

I turn around, I leave the key
You know how strong I mean to be
I leave my heart, I leave my hopes
Up to you, I’ve cut the ropes

I ain’t coming back, your house’s a shack
I ain’t looking back, no way I’m gonna crack

But please read my heart
I know we’ll always stay apart
But I have forgiven
I’ve let go of what was never given

I keep my smile, would keep yours too
You know how much I wanted to
I leave your life, I leave your side
I leave the one who can’t decide

I ain’t coming back, from bright to dark
I ain’t looking back, there will be no last spark

But please read my heart
You know we’ll always stay apart
But I have forgiven
I’ve let go of what was never given
Track Name: No Pride
No Pride

Can't help thinking about what has been
Wonder if this has only been a dream
Can it be that I was wrong all this time
Alone in love, thinking you’d be mine

I think of all the things we could have done
I could take you somewhere out in the sun
We could flee to my house in Spain
Or stay here and listen to the rain

I love you so much that it hurts inside
Like in the soulful songs you like
I wonder how you are, what you do
Do you think of me the way that I think of you

My tears won't dry on their own
Only you could dry them but you don't
You keep telling me to try and I try
But my imagination runs dry
You keep telling me to wait and I wait
But you will always be late
I'm not ready to let go of you
Don't want to lose it all and lose you

I love you so much that it hurts inside
Like in the soulful songs you like
I wonder how you are, what you do
Do you think of me like I think of you
I love you so much that it hurts inside
Like in the soulful songs you like
How will I do without you by my side
Did I not tell you, in love there’s no pride

How will I do without you by my side
Did I not tell you, in love there’s no pride
I love you so much that it hurts inside
Like in the soulful songs you like
I wonder how you are, what you do
Do you think of me as much as I think of you
Track Name: Your Dead Smile
Your Dead Smile

Leave me alone
Nothing else counts at the moment
I'm on my own
Don't you even bother pretending you care

I've been looking around
Searching for a sign
But all I could find was your dead smile
Your dead smile

Leave me alone
No one else counts at the moment
I have no home
Don’t you even bother asking if I share

I've been looking around
Searching for a sign
But all I could find was your dead smile
Your dead smile

I've been looking around
Searching for a sign
But all I could find was your dead smile
Your dead smile
Track Name: Hold On To You
Hold On To You

I look in the mirror
Stare in the dark
I try to see clearer
Looking for that spark
I heard your voice so many times
Saying love and us will never rhyme
But no matter what you say to me
I will always disagree

Cause I hold on to you
No matter what you do
I hold on to you
You know this much is true
I hold on to you
Try to find something new
That will change your point of view
Will you hold on to me too

I hold your hand at night
Watch you in your sleep
Your dreams they seem so bright
And I just want to weep
Wake up look at me
Tell me that you care
See, I’d set you free
If only you would dare

Yes I heard your voice so many times
Saying love and us will never rhyme

But I hold on to you
No matter what you do
I hold on to you
You know this much is true
I hold on to you
Try to find something new
That will change your point of view
Will you hold on to me too

I hold on to you, yes I hold on to you
No matter what you do
You know this much is true
I only try to find something new
That will change your point of view
Will you hold on to me too
Like I keep holding on to you
I hold on to you

But I hold on to you
No matter what you do
I hold on to you
You know this much is true
I hold on to you
Try to find something new
That will change your point of view
Will you hold on to me too
Track Name: Addicted
Addicted

Trying to find a reason
Not to follow his demons
He’s dancing like a child
His eyes all steamy and wild

Flirting with disaster
Is he slave or is he master
He’s smiling in the dark
Ready to bite like a shark

I call him addicted
Of love he’s convicted
Danger runs in his veins
I call him addicted
Of love he’s convicted

Trying to find a reason
Not to follow my intuition
I’m watching him dance
It’s addiction at first glance

Flirting with danger
Falling for a stranger

I call him addicted
Of love he’s convicted
Danger runs in his veins
I call him addicted
Of love he’s convicted
His kisses leave lethal stains

In his world there are no rules
Only cheaters and fools

I call him addicted
Of love he’s convicted
Danger runs in his veins
I call him addicted
Of love he’s convicted
His kisses leave lethal stains
Track Name: We're Gone (feat. Michel Marclay)
We’re Gone

Look at me now
Do you understand how – we’ve done
Do you recognize my face
Or are my eyes that deeper in my head
Look at me know
I don’t understand where – we’ve gone
Do you recognize my voice
Or are my words all covered up in noise

I never tried to be superior
Nor to put you down in fears
Don’t let yourself abuse
Nor make use with
What could have been
It didn’t happen little queen
I’ve got no damn name
I’ve got no damn name
I’m just trying to return before it turns insane

I sing for love and I’m right and hallowed
I sing for truth and I might be disappointed
I always tried to stir up the fire
To make you feel close
Don’t think I want to use
Or abuse of
What could have been
It never happened – I’m no queen
This is no damn game
This is no damn game
I’m just hoping you’ll return before it turns insane

I look at you now
I understand somehow… We’re gone.
Track Name: Is It Bad
Is It Bad

I know we said it from the start
We’re just friends, that’s very smart
This is what we wanted, to stay apart
I try to hide away from you
Not to let you see the truth
That I am way too crazy about you

But you just don’t know that I’m falling for you
Every time you leave, I miss you
Is it bad to have feelings for you
Is it bad to love you like I do

I know you said it from the start
You’ll never let me into your heart
This is what keeps us apart
I tried to follow your advice
No need to care or be too nice
This is too much of a sacrifice

No, you can’t pretend not to see
Every time we touch it’s ecstasy
Is it bad to want you so badly
Is it bad to hope that you’d love me

I know we said it from the start
We’re just friends, that’s not so smart
This is not what I wanted in my heart

I tried to follow your advice
Not to care or be too nice
This is too much of a sacrifice

No, you just don’t know that I’m falling for you
Every time you leave, I miss you
Is it bad to have feelings for you
Is it bad to love you like I do

I know we said it from the start
We’re just friends, that’s not so smart
This is not what I wanted in my heart
Track Name: The Cliff
The Cliff

I’m right there
Standing on the edge
Not daring to stretch
One step forward means the fall
Or one step back against the wall

I watch the void
Between what you destroyed
And what we enjoyed
Temptation is great
To get back into the debate

Is you and me a possibility
Is being free compatible with me
I’ll never know unless I jump
Taking the risk of being dumped

Standing on the cliff
Couldn’t stand to get a biff
Couldn’t make as if
I should better hold back
Turn around and start to pack

Somehow I’d really like to know
How it is like deep down below
But no, no, no I won’t fall back
I’d better switch off to another track

Is you and me a possibility
Is being free compatible with me
I’ll never know unless I jump
Taking the risk of being dumped
Track Name: The Game
The Game

Let’s play a game, come on let’s play

Let’s pay a game, I’ll teach you the rules
It’s an easy game, together we’ll play fools
It’s easy, let me show you how it goes, how to step into
It’s easy, let me show you how it goes

No matter what you do to me
I’ll always get back to you
No matter what you do to me
I’ll always get back to you

Let me take control
I win only if you fall
Ha ha ha hahahaha

Let’s play a game, it’s an easy game
Let’s play a game, it’s an easy game

Hahahaha hahaha

Let me take control
I win only if you fall
Let’s play a game, I’ll teach you the rules
It’s an easy game, together we’ll play fools
No matter what you do to me, I’ll always get back to you
No matter what you do to me, I’ll always get back to you

Ha ha ha ha….

Let’s play
Track Name: Midnight Lullaby
Midnight Lullaby

On your skin, the smell of sin
In your eyes, butterflies

Let me listen to your voice
One more time
Let me put my hand in yours
For the night
Don’t turn the lights, don’t close the door
Keep it bright
Let me look into your eyes
All the night

Skin so close, your eyes closed
Let me kiss, your tender lips
Let me listen to your voice
One more time
Let me hold your hand in mine
For the night

On our skin, the smell of sin
And in our eyes, butterflies

Let me listen to your voice
One more time
Let me put my hand in yours
For the night
Don’t turn the lights, don’t close the door
Keep it bright
Let me sing this lullaby, till midnight
Track Name: When You Go
When You Go

Sweet kisses, warm embrace
Open arms, smiling face
Romantic getaway
Loving words every day

I’ve changed all my moves
And became a perfect muse
I did everything
Treated you like a king

Have I not been a lover
A friend, a wife, a cover
Have I not played the fool
To make you feel useful

Oh my baby when you go
Take everything away
I don’t wanna know
Where you’re going, what you do
I don’t really care, I don’t love you, I don’t love you

No flowers or a call
Only this bloody wall
Don’t wash away my tears
They will dry alone in years

Your time all goes to others
You give me leftovers
I lost some precious time
I wasted for your eyes

How can you tell it’s over
You didn’t even bother
I’m through with sleepless nights
Go find yourself another Bright

Oh my baby when you go
Take everything away
I don’t wanna know
Where you’re going, what you do
I don’t really care, I don’t love you, I don’t love you
