None Of This 02:25
Reams and reams of fancy talk Embraces, long walks Moments suspended in time Poetry, easy rhymes None of this is love, none of this ever was None of this is real, none of this ever will (be) What do you want me to say ? It's not gonna change anything Same story, same suffering I can tide you over, so you can get better Anyway my life will never pass faster None of this is love, none of this ever was None of this is real... So much waste in so many ways I thought we were soulmates forever Nothing more to save, nothing more to share 'cause now we're two strangers None of this is love, none of this ever will (be).

No, you won't find out why we've been growing apart in each others wounds The gap is widening by leaps and bounds No, you won't find out why we turned off the spark laying deep down Water has flowed under the bridge and now it's drowned No, you won't find me knocking on the door like I'm stuck outside 'cause I don't care anymore, you can keep my pride And you won't find me standing on the porch in the pouring rain I've made no mistakes but I can take the blame Time is running out, and I'm about to leave I'm not going to speak Time is running out, and I'm about to leave I don't wanna speak to you 'cause this is the last thing I would wanna do, I'm not gonna strive I just want my heart back and stay alive I'm not a hungry dog who barks all night long I'm just an angry kid, I carry my burdens along Time is running out, and I'm about to leave Time is running out, I don't wanna speak to you 'cause this is the last thing i would wanna do.

Someday 03:18
Oh please, come on There aint nothing to complain about You're still young You've got nothing to be worried about So please, stay strong You've got friends who love you And this is where they belong Without them, what would you do ? Every life is screwed up Every mind is fucked up Every wish is fallen Every heart is broken Everything is here and now, don't you see ? So maybe someday you would say that you're happy Sick and tired of waiting for someone or something Why can't you just be someone or do something ? Let in a bit of light Even if it is not that bright Let's follow your own track Even if hopes keep you back Everything is here and now, it's all I see So maybe someday I could say "I am happy".

Wrong Time 04:24
The bright became dark The breeze became tornadoes Beliefs became distrust What's happened to the good times ? My plans get turned upside down Like everything was collapsing I'm afraid of missing something Why am I falling down ? Did I choose the wrong life, or the wrong love, at the wrong time ? Or am I just wasting my time, wasting my love, wasting my life ? I grew up too fast and I'm gonna grow old before I age 'cause I can't forget the past, and in the meantime I forget to live Did I hold on to a dream, where you're still here, and still my friends ? Or am I expecting too much from you, like every time I do ? I grew up too fast and I'm gonna grow old before I age 'cause I can't forget the past, and in the meantime I forget to live What's happened to the good times ? I really lost you.

Shed Of Lies 04:03
They told me to see the bright side They told me to go ahead But I've so much to hide Then I take refuge in my shed Usually there ain't no telling what tomorrow will bring But everyday is the same damn day I don't care about being pathetic 'cause I've got so much love to give And for the first time it has helped someone 'cause behind every beautiful thing there's a bad thing Even if we look for another way I know what I have to do to be happy again But I hang on to my lies Until I can no longer conceal my sorrow from my friends And find myself forced to break off ties With the little hope I've left I take what I can Even if it's almost nothing.

I have to turn over a new leaf It's been going on for way too long And I have to close this chapter for good "Move on", easier said than done Mainly when you realised that you're still hurting And you can't even think about mourning In her arms, I was me In dribs and drabs, it's killing me In her eyes, I found me In dribs and drabs, it's killing me.

From The Top 04:56
What made me smile now makes me sad And what made me sigh now makes me cry What made me shiver are just souvenirs And all those souvenirs now taste bitter I wish you were just a bad dream That I'd forget when I wake up every morning As if you never hurt me As if you never even happened I hate you and I'm sorry If only I could climb the mountains And from the top, see how it ends If only I could jump into the waves And never drop my feet into the grave Tell me how to never get weary Tell me how to feel like fish out of sea Tell me how boredom can be a good thing Tell me how to feel my heart beating again If only I could climb the mountains And from the top, see how it ends If only I could jump into the waves And never drop my feet (into the grave) While others build their homes I'm wondering if I need one While others build their lives I'm roaming in mine While others build their dreams I'm dragging behind, without ever reaching it I hate myself (and I'm sorry).

Landscape scrolling away Frozen lake out of sight Walking out on my wistful thoughts I try to let them go Escape beyond the borders Infinite shape, hazy colors I don't need to know where to go I just need to go 'cause I'm a blindfolded traveler and I refuse to see that answer: "No matter which road we choose We will always get the blues No matter which train we take We will always feel heartache" Emptyness left behind Unspoken sealed inside I don't need to keep all these words I try to flee like a coward 'cause I'm a misguided lover and I refuse to hear that answer: "There's always someone to weep We will always feel so weak There's always someone to miss We will never find our bliss" I am back home, and still alone 'cause I'm a blindfolded traveler 'cause I'm a misguided lover.

A long car ride to the cemetery Cold hellos, long waitings and cold weather Flowers are put there by my father People dressed in black, let's start the ceremony Everything is so fragile... I see pain in my cousins' faces And I see fear in my aunt's speeches Now there's no more promises Except keep on going with scars and scratches Everything is so fragile... I see memories in my uncle's eyes And I see strength in the orphans' smiles Now it's time to say goodbye Is there someone to hear all my cries? It's just one soul among many others But that funeral is like no other Everything is so fragile, I could be dead in a second I'm scared... I'm scared.
