Track Name: The Day After
well the sunrise is just the same in every town
it helps you appreciate that you’re around
there’s only so many springs in your life
so open yourself up don’t just stare at the sky


So go on my friend,
start living your life
sitting in a dark room never gets you far

The sunset in Marrakesh blinds my eyes
i watch all my sorrows go, straight up to the skies
as the smoke emerges into the velvet night
If I die another day, i shouldn’t mind

So let me see and start to live your life
counting your tears never gets you far
Track Name: Barking Dog
If the pillow is soft
then why is it hard
when I’m dozing off
to sleep
to sleep

If I’ve got it so hard
then why am I soft
when I’m dozing off
to sleep
to sleep

Just you
and me
and a barking dog

Just you
and me
on a summer dawn

If I’ve got it so hard
then why am I soft
when I’m dozing off
to sleep
to sleep

Just you
and me
and a barking dog

Just you
and me
on a summer dawn

A voice so soft
Fingers through the shutters
Morning is here:
That’s quite enough.
Thank you very much.
Track Name: Hold On To Your Love
Hold on to your love
cause you don’t know when you want me
and you don’t know when you need me

Oh i’ve heard it all
you swear that you’ll never touch me
and the next thing, you come running

so don’t waste my time


If you want me to stay
won’t need a love song
take you with me to the horizon
we’ll find a way
you know I'm never wrong
and I love it when you surprise me
there’s no need to sway
i can see you will be back for more

Hold on to your hope
cause you don’t know when you’ll call me
and you won’t go once you got me
Hold on to your love
cause you never know when you need me
I can make sure that you’ll want me

if you want me to stay
don’t waste another song
i’ll take you with me to the horizon
we’ll find a way
you know that I'm never wrong
and I love it when you surprise me
there’s no need to sway
you know it won’t be long
i can make sure you’’ll be back for more
Track Name: Let Go
When your story’s finally told
you leave yourself exposed
just imagine
Your skin feels smooth, but cold
like a coat of solid gold
just let it happen


when you lose your self-control
and part becomes the whole
just let go
did you set yourself a goal?
then open up your soul
just let go


Are we strangers on a shore
Or have we met before?
Would it make any difference?

and have you settled your scores
or would you stay for more
was it worth the experience?


Did you embrace this war,
something you can’t ignore?
the point of your existence
Track Name: Flame To The Fire
There is a man
putting out fires
And there is another
Cutting the wires
Stuff your little thoughts in a box that you can hide
Try having thoughts worth it to hide

Building up your pyre
Little sticks of green desire
Won’t take you any higher
So think before you start the fire

Turn around
Give yourself some good advice
Tell yourself to pay the price
Go ahead and burn down down down

and this time
i don't want to be the wiser
I just wish you’d read my eyes
My words are just flame to the fire

he’s not your man
you don’t need a liar
he’s not the one
for you to admire

Stuff your little life in a box that you can hide
try having a life
where you feel alive

Building up your pyre
Little sticks of green desire
Won’t take you any higher
So think before you start the fire

Turn around
Give yourself some good advice
Tell yourself to pay the price
Go ahead and burn down down down

and this time
i don't want to be the wiser
I just wish you’d read my eyes
My words are just flame to the fire
Track Name: Same Old Tune
Now the winter’s over
and you know it should feel good
but every day’s getting colder
April never understood


will you ever grow?
will you ever know
how it feels to have a home?
will you ever grow?
will the anxiety go
away that grinds in your bones?


Another day is over
with you lying on the floor
there was a time you could run away
but it’s not an option anymore
When you’ve already exhausted
Every arguement you could
And you only find comfort
When you hear the same old tune
Track Name: Batman Vs Joker
it’s only chemical
the odds are very minimal
you say i’m cynical
can’t you see that it’s mutual?

No chance for calling it even
No chance to make amends
It’s not a question of leaving
We can never be ‘’just friends’’


well, it’s a mircale
how can you stay so invisible?
oh but it’s criminal
can’t stop being so political
Track Name: Into the Blue
Oh come on, since you invited me
give me a clue
i lost all sense of direction
you threw me into the blue

and now, still you offer your glad hand

i don’t misunderstand
i see that everything was planned
Design drawn in the sand

Thought I’d found my sea legs when
you appeared again
Sending me off the deep end

When you called, it was so exciting
now i seem like a fool
I'm solipsistic for a reason
as all the dreams turned cruel

and now, still you offer your glad hand

i don’t misunderstand
i see that everything was planned
Design drawn in the sand

Thought I’d found my sea legs when
you appeared again
Sending me off the deep end

Will i see the day
when i stop asking the same
and finally take the blame
