Track Name: Right-About Turn
Read my mind
Let me feel
Make me believe
That I'm not talking to a shadow

God damn everything lasts just for a while
I don't get any pleasure out of our time
You don't want me to find myself in you
You just love to see me getting lost

Slowly I got where I wanted
But I forgot what was the reason
For a wonder I don't regret it
Since I found out
Out of the blue
There's nothing better than bringing a smile to your face

Unravelling
Of a mystery
Is so close to me
But I'm not keen on getting closer

God damn everything lasts just for a while
I don't get any pleasure out of our time
You don't want me to find myself in you
You just love to see me getting lost

Slowly I got where I wanted
But I forgot what was the reason
For a wonder I don't regret it
Since I found out
Out of the blue
There's nothing better than bringing a smile to your face
Finally I got what I wanted
It took so long I couldn't enjoy it
Slowly, you'll see what I want now
Could you lift me higher than this?
I couldn't be more sensible without you
Track Name: Amnesia
You buried your past in hermetic bag
And you never looked back
You let things slide
Amnesia. She calls it amnesia

But you will find new way to justify anything you did
But honey, it works only for a while
Just blame it on amnesia
That's what you do
That's what you do

Sun is up and you know it better
Snow will melt as I make my way back home

Run,run, run away until you reach the blind street
I don't know if it makes my heart stop or if it makes my heart beat
Run,run, run away until you reach...

Got to do the same, got to send this love down to the graveyard
We are long dead, head back, back to the ground

Do you really believe
That moments of bliss
Could be ever enough to fulfil your life
Till the very end?
It's just like amnesia

And now I ask myself - Have I ever lived?
Have I buried my life and only dreamed
for this whole time?
Infected with amnesia I got from you
I got from you

Morning comes and you know it better
We're just one step closer to the grave

Run,run, run away until you reach the blind street
I don't know if it makes my heart stop or if it makes my heart beat
Run,run, run away until you reach...

Got to do the same, got to send this love down to the graveyard
I'm stuck forever somewhere in the middle
A sip of tea washed down with a cold drink
I could never live that way again

Run,run, run away until you're done
Track Name: Fish Without Water
Here I am, drop in the ocean
I'd rather die livin' than live dead
But the time slips by like the sand between my fingers
Current dust is future us
I thought you knew that
Why do you keep on trying
To prove that I am wrong?
There's just as many views
as people in the world

I do what you want
Breadbin won't fill up by itself
I spent all my cash
Pretending that it's our aim
But on the other hand
We'd like to be somewhere else
You're like a fish with no water
Though you've got the legs
To rise and move on
But you're too lazy
I guess you'll always be like that
Just a fry or a rat

You just let your dreams vaporize. You let them go.
You're a flag in the wind. Storms toss you still.
And there's always gonna be someone trying to put you down
Current dust is future us
It's the time of your life
Why do you keep on trying
To prove that I am wrong?
There's just as many views
as people in the world

I do what you want
Breadbin won't fill up by itself
I spent all my cash
Pretending that it's our aim
But on the other hand
We'd like to be somewhere else
You're like a fish with no water
Though you've got the legs
To rise and move on
But you're too lazy
I guess you'll always be like that
Just a fry or a rat
Track Name: The Luckiest Man I Never Knew
What's the force that turns the feelings into songs
When you don't...
You don't have to know a single note to make it work
When every finger knows it's place to make
Some sort of melody that fits so well

I don't want you here
I don't want you to...
But I want you here
And I want you to...
Oh goddamnit, why am I doing this?
I don't want you here
I don't want you to...
But I want you here
And I want you to...
Oh goddamnit, why am I doing this?

We're the only ones who reap benefits from the broken dreams
How bittersweet, how bittersweet is this ?
I believe he is the luckiest man I never knew
And I'm sure he didn't have to try

I don't want you here
I don't want you to...
But I want you here
And I want you to...
Oh goddamnit, why am I doing this?
I don't want you here
I don't want you to...
But I want you here
And I want you to...
Oh goddamnit, why am I doing this?
Fuck it
Track Name: 20 Years & 20 Days
I just can't believe
What I did to have you, miss
You have a gift
Not everyone can break
Two hearts in just one day
You're so special
Don't make excuses
I knew how it would end
I was dumb enough to believe you again
Lust can eat your brain
If you win then I'll stop to believe
In any justice in this world of malice
Don't make excuses
I knew how it would end
I was dumb enough to believe you again

Frustrations arrive
Emotions increase
All of this
Has to be released

I feel better now
I can see the light
I also can see you there girl
You're that light

But I can't believe
Get close to me
And take me somewhere nice
To cure my lonely heart baby
Too much happens recently
It's hard to devide
Truth from fantasy
I just can't believe
You're not as lonely as I thought you were
I am not sure of your intentions
You're not so lonely as I thought
But maybe you pretend
Truth is in your gaze

Frustrations arrive
Emotions increase
All of this
Has to be released

I feel better now
I can see the light
I also can see you there girl
You're that light

I can't believe
It's so surreal
I can't believe
You came so suddenly so surprisingly
20 days
To keep in suspense
Oh you can help
Make me forget, reset and start again
20 years
Kept us away
I have some doubts
It goes too well to believe that it is real
Track Name: Rotten Feelings
It takes no magic or crystal ball to foretell what you're gonna do
You've been making the same mistakes for last few years
It really makes me fuckin' sad
I don't need the script to know how it ends
I know everyone's role
These things will never change
Hopeless hollow moan

Yeah yeah yeah
These rotten feelings!
Yeah yeah yeah
Turn us into cynics!
You're sticky like the burr
You're a femme fatale
You do not forbid
You do not allow
So you should know
I don't want any of your words
Thrown into the void
Dying in void now

If you think I'm evil then you should know I haven't always been like that
I'm your work of art. One of a kind. Oh honey are you proud?
You don't get and you never will get the taste of my good time, dear.
Because you did it once, did it twice and you will do it again

Yeah yeah yeah
These rotten feelings!
Yeah yeah yeah
Turn us into cynics!
You're sticky like the burr
You're a femme fatale
You do not forbid
You do not allow
So you should know
I don't want any of your words
Thrown into the void
Dying in void now

These rotten feelings!
Yeah yeah yeah
Turn us into cynics!
You're sticky like the burr
You're a femme fatale
You do not forbid
You do not allow
So you should know
I don't want any of your words
Thrown into the void
Dying in void now

These rotten feelings!
YEAH YEAH YEAH!
These rotten feelings!
Track Name: Under My Eyelid
The way you look
The way you move
your body to the beat
Makes me shy like a child
I get paralized
You're the fire in my veins
You're the floaters in my eyes
Like the blast from the past
I live again

Suddenly
You mean so much to me
My eyes are closed but I see
You under my eyelids
You're far away but your voice
Speaks louder than the noise
Of all the crap that's around
And I live again

The way you look
The way you move
your body to the beat
Makes me shy like a child
I get paralized
You're the fire in my veins
You're the floaters in my eyes
Like the blast from the past
I live again

Suddenly
You mean so much to me
My eyes are closed but I see
You under my eyelids
You're far away but your voice
Speaks louder than the noise
Of all the crap that's around
And I live again

Dance dance dance
I made it for you
Dance dance dance
I made it for you
So appreciate
And don't obey
You know I'm only thinking about
a Kiss kiss kiss kiss kiss kiss
Track Name: Little Screamer
Hold me now
How I wish you were drawn to my irrational fears and doubts
How I wish you were drawn to me

If you wanna have a home with a view on the shore
You know I wanna give you that
I just follow my dreams
I know what you think
Stupid little boy he is

Show me now any better way to live my life
Every night in bed I draw new plans
Every morning they fade so fast

And I want you to see. It's harder for me
To get things that they get for free
But it's never enough
It's never enough to ever keep you satisfied

Hold on
It's gonna take time but I will make it matter
Be there for me
See the shape of things to come
Hate me
You're gonna hear laughs of those who'll never matter
They were born to die
Or to live someone else's life

Paper world seems to fit your paper thoughts
But I need to make you realize
There's always more than meets the eye

You can do what you want
If it's not opposed to path they painted long ago
If it's never about us be genuine at last
You don't always have to be so kind

Suck my blood
Use it for the things you want
And tell me that I'm not suposed
We're gonna find you your own voice

You're dumb or naive
To think you can achieve
Anything without a bead of sweat
Don't get strangled by fear
Of something never seen
There so much more waiting there

Hold on
It's gonna take time but I will make it matter
Be there for me
See the shape of things to come
Hate me
You're gonna hear laughs of those who'll never matter
They were born to die
Or to live someone else's life


You're not a victim but neither am I
They all know everything better
So why do you fight?

Hold on
It's gonna take time but I will make it matter
Be there for me
See the shape of things to come
Track Name: Same Old Story
There are stars that shine so bright
Though they're nothing more than dust
Just a gleam from the past
But I'd like to get a glimpse anyway

Glitter of your eyes
surpassed all my gladness
Old memories
Coming back and back and back and back again
Drop of a joy
and sea of my tears
What's better?
Spent so much time time time on you
Clouds in the sky
And rain on your face
I wonder
if there's a sun behind those clouds

There's something about us
But there's something in between us
I don't know

A glance was enough
To know I know I'm trouble
But I know there's love love love in your eyes
Seek out the script
And revise an ending
Make it better
Frame by frame we'll live it all again
Those images in my head
Are all that I get
Just sweet talk
No warranty no hopeful attitude

There's something about us
But there's something in between us
I don't know
There's something about us
But there's something in between us
I don't know
Track Name: Getaway
Take your time
To find out what I found out last night
You're a bird in a cage
You can't tweet you can't sing
Your wings are to small to fly for an inch
It's hard to believe
It's hard to admit but true indeed
It's your heart that you keep on trying to cheat
Deep inside you know what you need
What did we learn through all those years?

Let's get away
I need to reset
Familiar phraze
Will I see you again?
Cause all that I see isn't what it seems
I wanna get away from the life that I lived
And you're naive to believe that he did't cheat
Cause he did

Take your time
To find out what I found out last night
You can lie to yourself
But never lie to me
Cause I know exactly what you think
It's hard to believe
It's hard to admit but true indeed
It's your heart that you keep on trying to cheat
Deep inside you know what you need
So do you want me here at all?

Let's get away
Not only plan to
Familiar phraze
I need to see you again
Cause all that I see isn't what it seems
I wanna get away from the life that I lived
And you're naive to believe that he did't cheat
Cause he did
why don't you want to see?

Let's get away
I need to reset
I need to calm down
I need your help
Cause all that I see isn't what it seems
I wanna get away from the life that I lived
And you're naive to believe that he did't cheat
Cause he did
What do you really wanna see?
Track Name: There's Something In The Air
I have met a girl
You know, the type you never get
But I would like to know you better girl
I'd like to follow you

And I will break through just get to you
Make a move, ensure me that it's true
Believe me, I'm not going away

There's something in the air. Girl you are something else
She's closing on me, shivers on my skin. You're so real
I want you to know you're all that matters in the world
It's not enough. I need more time with your eyes

I was smoking cigarette
I was freezing to death
That's when you came
That's when I knew I'd like to follow you to your bed

Please please please
Take me to your place
Now that you said words so significant
Slow down, I won't be going away

There's something in the air. Girl you are something else
She's closing on me, shivers on my skin. You're so real
I want you to know you're all that matters in the world
It's not enough. I need more time with your eyes
Track Name: Between The Lines
You hear me playing this song
Now it's only two chords
No technic no harmonic tones
But anyway I don't really care
It is not the point
It's enough to include
things crucial to me

Cause I am too shy to say it out loud
Into your eyes
The chords slightly changed for the chorus my friend
It sounds joyfull yeah
My wrist is in pain cause I cannot play
with loose hand
Under your block of flats I imagine myself
Playing this song

Now we get back to the verse
It's not very good
But that's the first thing
That came to my mind
So I will skip this part
And go straight to refrain
To conclude all this mess

Oh damn it I have almost forgotten
The reason I write.
I won't say it straight into your face
It's between the lines
My wrist is in pain cause I cannot play
with loose hand
This song is as simple as my feelings to you
These fellings are pure
