Track Name: Love Game
Muscle and blood
Violently pulsing through
I have control of where I go
Stumbling ’round
Obstacles I have found
I have control over them all

Go back to the start
You’ve got another heart
And if you lose it all
The love game is over
Waking up unharmed
And everything is calm
You can find a spark,
even in the dark

Clad in armor
Digital landscape
Conquer divide
But I will survive
My avatar could be in love with you
Switch off, switch on my intercom

Go back to the start
You’ve got another heart
And if you lose it all
The love game is over
Waking up unharmed
And everything is calm
You can find a spark,
even in the dark

All the characters I find
Pixelated in my mind, tell me
Every level that I pass
Every bonus, every task, save me
If this is an illusion,
world of make believe
It doesn’t really matter
when I choose to leave
All I need to do is start again
I’ll have another heart in the end

Go back to the start, you find a spark
Go back to the start, you find a spark

Go back to the start
You’ve got another heart
And if you lose it all
The love game is over
Waking up unharmed
And everything is calm
You can find a spark,
even in the dark
Track Name: Mirror
You love her more than you can tell
In the hall of mirrors you lost her
And I lost myself
listening to the background choir
in my head
And all that is left are pieces of glass

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Where’s the fairest of them all
Broken glass reflects the light
Seven years of misfortune
now that she’s out of my sight

The diamonds turn out to be glass
Love her even if she’s gone
The diamonds turn out to be glass
Love her even if she’s gone,
even if she’s gone

I know that glass is crystal clear
Love her even if she’s gone
and until I disappear

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Where’s the fairest of them all
Broken glass reflects the light
Seven years of misfortune
now that she’s out of my sight

The diamonds turn out to be glass
Love her even if she’s gone
We’re caught in silence,
hear the unspoken words
And the diamonds
turn out to be
Track Name: In the Darkness
A distant voice in my head
Calls me in my bed
A distant voice
A distant

Through the abyss I’m climbing
Unsaddled, carriage lost
It whispers in my findings
My mind is nearly gone

In the dark, in the dark,
in the darkness
When you find, when you find,
when you find it
Through the thoughts and the doubts
and the fears
That we hide, that we hide,
that we hide in

We found the head of a snake
Beside a dusty road
You and I we were afraid
That our youth was lost to know
Embodied in the skin
My fear is wont to go
A canyon held within
As my spirit starts to blow

In the dark, in the dark,
in the darkness
When you find, when you find,
when you find it
Through the thoughts and the doubts
and the fears
That we hide, that we hide,
that we hide in

Let me be, it’s my turn to hunt you
Breaking free there’s madness
all around you
Slithering trapped doors I abound in
Desert winds so good
to settle down in
You’re my friend carrying
what I’m soon to drown in
Take a swim sharing in what I am
surrounding
Lessons learned buried
in caverns I amount in
One more feast
carried to the mountains

In the dark, in the dark,
in the darkness
When you find, when you find,
when you find it
Through the thoughts and the doubts
and the fears
That we hide, that we hide,
that we hide in
Track Name: Two Stars
In the sweet, sweet nights
All that I’ve found,
Unknown faces
Dancing all around
And I’m in between
Your thirsty kiss
Makes me forget about
All that I’m missing

We were the only stars
Shining bright, two drunken hearts
Waiting for some kind of love
Waiting for something new to start

Dance, dance, dance
Lonesome heart
We wanna waste
everything we’ve got
Take me anywhere,
show me something true
In the small hours
Just me and you

We were the only stars
Shining bright, two drunken hearts
Waiting for some kind of love
Waiting for something new to start

When I woke up
I turned my head and there I saw you
Sleeping beauty,
drunken from the night
Your closed eyes
reminded me of something
Maybe of an unborn child
Your skin and the blanket
wrapped around you
Pure and white,
I thought I could fall in love
with you for a while
But I guess I don’t know
what you’re dreaming about
In sweet, sweet nights

We were the only stars
Shining bright, two drunken hearts
Waiting for some kind of love
Waiting for something new to start
Track Name: Boy with a Gun
Once there was a boy with a gun
Who came to shoot me down
The bullet hit me right in the heart
I fell to the ground,
my body hit with a dead sound
A blink of the eye, am I still alive,
am I still alive, am I still alive?

I wasn’t guilty, I wasn’t guilty
Whatever they told you,
whatever they told you

And I remember
the last seconds when he
Looked me in the eye
With his beautiful and cold smile
The blood that I’d lost
was sweet and warm
I’ll never forget you
and you’ll never forget me
lying there

I wasn’t guilty, I wasn’t guilty
Whatever they told you,
whatever they told you

I never thought
that a moment like this
Could be so confusingly beautiful
I’ll never forget you
and you’ll never forget me
That isn’t a deadly wound

I wasn’t guilty, I wasn’t guilty
Whatever they told you,
whatever they told you
Track Name: Scratch
What you said was true
But it wasn’t
what the others wanted to hear
You stood in front of us and said
It’s better to die young
than be alive forever

We ate our meal with silver spoons
But couldn’t hide
the loneliness we felt
Tears came to my eyes
No surprise, no surprise

Scratch your heart on my skin
I’ve decided on love
Scratch your name on my skin
I’ve decided on love

I can see all the others
but do they see me
It seems that I’m lost here
and lost is the key
That opens a door
that I’d locked long ago
For some reason that I forgot
For some reasons, I don’t know

Scratch your heart on my skin
I’ve decided on love
Scratch your name on my skin
I’ve decided on love

I wish I had the presence of mind
but I just can’t remember
I got so tired

Scratch your heart on my skin
I’ve decided on love
Scratch your name on my skin
I’ve decided on love
Track Name: A Favor
Lay my head, lay my head
On your chest
Where I can rest
Hear your heart beating
Oh what I’ ve found
Hear it beating
A calming sound

Won’t you do, won’t you do,
won’t you do me a favor girl?
Do, won’t you do,
won’t you do me a favor girl?
Fall in love with me

This could be
The chance that we
Should not be afraid of
Just follow the
Warm dim light
It could be our guide
To bring us home
Where we belong

Won’t you do, won’t you do,
won’t you do me a favor girl?
Do, won’t you do,
won’t you do me a favor girl?
Fall in love with me
Track Name: Black Bird
Would I know your voice?
Would I know your hair?
If you come back
What will we share?

A dog barks in the night
But I don’t feel scared
If you come back
What will we share?

Black bird sings for me
Tomorrow comes the rain
It’s the last springtime
Forever it will remain

Falling into pieces
A splendid mosaic
That reflects the light
A knife that cuts so deep
Track Name: Emily
Emily on the dancefloor,
Emily on the dancefloor

Emily came from Melbourne
to see the world
And on the dance floor
she was the prettiest girl
She said travelling’s her passion
but I guess
She just came here for a kiss

And around midnight she was gone
I would miss her
if I’d known her for long

Emily on the dancefloor
She is movin’ on,
she is movin on, she is…

Emily speaks a few words
of Japanese
She said “My name is Emily-san”
And I thought she’s like the sun
Rising over the hills of Japan

Emily on the dancefloor
She is movin’ on,
she is movin on, she is…

Emily I wonder
if you will ever hear this song
And even if I stay at home
I’m a part of the journey you are on
I wish I’d known you for long

Emily on the dancefloor
She is movin’ on,
she is movin on, she is…
Track Name: Sparkling Water
Sparkling Water
We’re swimming in a lake
Give me a lift
and we drive to your place
This is a beautiful summer day,
This is a beautiful summer day.
This is what I have missed for so long,
Now I will just move on.

And I fall in love again
And you fall in love, in love

At the backstairs of your empty house
You make a backtrack
because you say soon enough
We’ll confuse ourselves
with a thoughtless kiss
We’ll confuse ourselves
with something that we miss

And I fall in love again
And you fall in love, in love
Track Name: Means of Escape
Does this get any better
after a while?
In the moments when I miss you most
I don’t understand why
We could drift apart
I remember once in the snow
We were lovers
A compelling undertow

Nothing can save us now
And we can’t go back

It’s all so simple
A heart has the shape of a heart
But where is the means of escape
Everything gets blurry
the closer we get
What we make doesn’t make sense
What’s my name again?

Nothing can save us now
And we can’t go back

Sing a song, sing a song
and fall asleep
Sing for myself, sing for myself
and my inner peace
I sing a song, sing a song
and fall asleep
I know we have to let it all go
If in fact we want to keep it all

Nothing can save us now
And we can’t go back
