Track Name: Fear of flying
I´ve have seen a fair share of good things coming my way
But the moment they´ve hit me I´ve instinctively started to push them away
And that´s been my story until there was you
Trying to turn me into a believer of an alternate truth

But sometimes it gets all too real for me and its killing me
Sometimes it gets all too real

Why would someone like you look twice at me
I can´t work it out, and it´s doing
It is doing my head in
Don´t get me wrong I´ve never felt this strong
As I do for you
It´s not your fault
It´s not your fault I fear to fly

Everything you are is perfection dressed in flesh and blood
You´ve opened my eyes up to a world I've never understood
But my defensive wall keeps building up in between with us
Cause surely soon you´ll see right through me or ill find a way to mess things up

Sometimes it gets all too real for me and its killing me
Sometimes it gets all too real

Why would someone like you look twice at me
I can´t work it out, and it´s doing
It is doing my head in
Don´t get me wrong I´ve never felt this strong
As I do for you
It´s not your fault
It´s not your fault I fear to fly

I leap into your open arms
To be set free from this harm
My self destructive ways
Have gone to many steps to far

Why would someone like you look twice at me
I can´t work it out, and it´s doing
It is doing my head in
Don´t get me wrong I´ve never felt this strong
As I do for you
It´s not your fault
It´s not your fault I fear to fly
Track Name: Head on the floor
She wakes up early in the morning
While I´m happily still asleep
Gets on the bus and goes to work
Where she will spend her day with dreams passing through her head.
She gets home tired feeling weary
Gets some food and goes to bed
Our time is spent half dosed off in front of the TV
But there ain´t no place I´d rather be

Her head is shed on the floor
Her head is shed, it´s shed on the floor

I feel the stress come creeping up on me
When she finally gets some rest
My weekend ends when hers begin
I reach my high as she´s tucked in
And with heavy eyes meet my grin

Her head is shed on the floor
Her head is shed, it´s shed on the floor

She brings beauty to my ordinary day
Breathing life into an otherwise steady stream of pain
Her madness keeps me sane
Track Name: Domestic
You used to laugh at all my jokes
You never turned me down when I got close
Your new dress code is comfortable
You´re never late to point out faults I make
Yet you´ll stay right here with me
Yes you´ll stay right here with me

You use to bring me flowers for no reason
We talked for hours without end
Now you are just sat there
Staring at a screen expecting to get waited on
Yet you´ll stay right here with me
Yes you´ll stay right here with me

In your darkest hour you will find that I´m there to fight your battles out
I won´t let no one close to you, I´ll keep you safe from harm even from yourself
I´ll stay always

You´re unable to do things to my taste
Cause you do things backwards and I the right way round
You leave our things just laying around
Well, if I pick them up you moan they can´t be found
Yet you´ll stay right here with me
Yes you´ll stay right here with me

In your darkest hour you will find that I´m there to fight your battles out
I won´t let no one close to you, keep you safe from harm even from yourself
I´ll stay always
Track Name: While I breathe
Looking at yet another birthday
The joy it used to bring me
Is now anxiety
Over things I haven’t achieved

Found myself with new ways of thinking
My interests have changed
From daring to safe
From grandeur to plain

I feel your hand on mine
And my mind goes blank from all but now
While I breathe out

Restless and bored
Yet comfortably pleased with it all
I´ve never been old before

Needed by four generations
The safety net is gone
It´s been gone for long
It just hasn’t hit home

Carrying the world on my shoulders
So used to bounce of the wall
That when hitting it hard
I was completely caught off guard

I feel your hand in mine
And my mind goes blank from all but now
While I breathe out

Restless and bored
Yet comfortably pleased with it all
Like never before

Proud and in awe
Yet panicking to run for the door
No, I´ve never been old before
Track Name: In silence
In silence I hold you close in an acid rain
We are grounded inside a storm, it´s where we´ll stay

She's bleeding from our beating
With love we heed her call
With love we heed her call
To break our fall

We´re burning with a desire we can´t deny
Our yearning is down to earth, it´s in our cries

She's bleeding from our beating
With love we heed her call
With love we heed her call
To break our fall

Green's the color of our goal of our dream
Our shorelines aren´t just a sacrifice to a raging sea

She's bleeding from our beating
With love we heed her call
With love we heed her call
To break our fall
Track Name: Visions of tomorrow
Happiness found its way past me
It found a way to flee
Loneliness has walked right next to me
And now it´s all I see, it´s all I´ll ever be

Everything I´ve lost is all I´ve ever known
It´s made me turn my head
To the place where I once was, and what I should have done
It´s made me turn my head around

The strength has left my every limb
I got no more to give
The visions of the life I hoped to live
Has long since disappeared, there´s nothing left but fear

Everything I´ve lost is all I´ve ever known
It´s made me turn my head
To the place where I once was, and what I should have done
It´s made me turn my head around

I fly up, eyes wide open while gasping for air to regain my sense
Everything seemed real, to real to just forget and move on

Happiness found its way past me
And I´ve just let it be
Just like in the dream
As far as I can see
That might one day soon be me

Everything I will have lost, will be all I´ve ever known
And I will turn my head
To the place where I´m at now, where I still have the chance
I don´t want to turn my head around
Track Name: I will forget
It´s falling apart
The past blends into where the present is lost
All that matters will fade into the dark
A lifetime to tear apart

And I´ll forget you in the end
I´ll forget you in the end

Greeted by your sad eyes
A rare moment of clarity when you arrive
You are the pride of my life
I will save the memory of you for last

But I´ll forget you in the end
Ill forget you in the end
Track Name: Clean as a whistle
I am a father, I´m a son
a friend, a neighbor and a citizen
I do my best to play these parts
But just enough so I can leave space for number one

I´m clean as a whistle, clean as a whistle
Depending on where the whistle has been

I have a girl that I adore
she needs someone there for her (someone there for her)
But I need time to myself , (why´s that) I need my freedom
So she will have to live with my left overs (it´s what she will get)

I´m clean as a whistle, clean as a whistle
Depending on where the whistle has been

I´ve turned my work into an art
of using the least amount of effort to get it done
Cause there are more important things in life
Like being able to look into the mirror and smile

I´m clean as a whistle, clean as a whistle
Depending on where the whistle has been
Track Name: Hero
You´re the joker leaving everyone wondering
Weather to laugh with or at
If you were rich you would be seen as eccentric
But since you´re not you´re just plain mad
You´re leaving us in doubt

We hang on to the hand we´ve been dealt with
You throw yours away to see what´s to come
We keep quiet, afraid to look stupid
While you raise your voice to be the wiser man
You´re leaving us in doubt
Since we fail to work you out

Don´t you know that you are
A hero dressed in scars
You´ve evolved into a star
Superior to us all

We get lost in search of others approval
You´re simply walking your own way
Were chameleons condemned to the background
You´re an ugly duckling leaving home
You´re leaving us in doubt
Since we fail to work you out

Don´t you know that you are
A hero dressed in scars
You´ve evolved into a star
Superior to us all

You´re leaving us in doubt
Since we´ve always failed to work you out

Don´t you know that you are
A hero dressed in scars
You´ve evolved into a star
Superior to us all
Track Name: Norah
Sail across the waters by my side
I´ll steer us ahead while you keep an eye out
We´re starved, eager at heart
To let all of what´s inside out

With spirit held high I come to life
She watches me fly with sadness in her eyes
We are but alone in the dark
Where I stumble blindly she falls

She ain´t got no more excuses left to save me
She ain´t got no reason not to leave

With heavy head I´m forced to count my loss
Patching up my memory while crawling to the cross
I´ve run out of excuses to hide behind
That she´s been fed a thousand times

She ain´t got no more excuses left to save me
She ain´t got no reason not to leave
Track Name: Awakening
I´m all a mess inside
My thoughts have left me not knowing what´s in or out
I grab hold of whatever I can
Clinging on so hard it leaves a mark inside my hands

I will follow you whenever you call for me
Despite of my fear
I will leave this broken creature far behind and go
Just help me carry my mental load

I´ll break in order to be made whole again

I can´t let things go even for a moment
Trying to gain control of a lost cause
I am no more than a burden
To everyone I care for

I will follow you whenever you call for me
Despite of my fear
I will leave this broken creature far behind and go
Just help me carry my mental load

I´ll break in order to be made whole again

I will follow you whenever you call for me
Despite of my fear
I will leave this broken creature far behind and go
Just help me carry my mental load
Track Name: October in white
You is the word that cheers me up
A shoulder to lean on when I run out of luck
You are a diamond of perfect cut
When I need beauty to rest my eyes upon

You are forever what I desire most
Through better or worse I am yours

You are excitement when I´m bored
You are my blanket whenever I need warmth
You are an ice cold shower
When I need to be woken from heavy thoughts

You are forever what I desire most
Through better or worse I am yours

You make my time here worth living
My point of existence clear
You hold my heart in safe keeping
For always my place is here
You are my heroine and all of the time you are love

In madness you make sense
You will be my oracle when I am in need of guidance

You are forever what I desire most
Through better or worse I am yours

You are my heroine and all the time you are love
