Love Game 03:46
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

Mirror 04:24
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

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

Two Stars 04:24
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

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

Scratch 05:13
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

A Favor 04:22
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

Black Bird 03:24
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
9.
Emily 03:58
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…

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
11.
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
