Track Name: Never Danced Sober
I have come out here tonight
With a quest to keep things in line
No more than a drink or two
Cause in the morning I got things to do

I open my eyes to a glimmer of light
Coming through where the blind has been left up
I turn off the noise from my second alarm
Getting up to the beat of my head

All night, king of the floor
Just wanting more, now confidence is sore
Hiding behind a cold wall
The need comes on to let everything go

I open my eyes to a glimmer of light
Coming through where the blind has been left up
I turn off the noise from my second alarm
Getting up to the beat of my head

Say the word and off we go
Entering too familiar places
I`m everything I want and more
But I have worn too many faces
Soon to be a stranger to myself

Falling back in line
Pretend I´m fine, careful not to stand out
Dying to feel alive
But for now I keep my distance to everyone around

I open my eyes to a glimmer of light
Coming through where the blind has been left up
I turn off the noise from my second alarm
Getting up to the beat of my head

Say the word and off we go
Entering too familiar places
I`m everything I want and more
But I have worn too many faces
Soon to be a stranger
Soon to be a stranger to myself
Track Name: Higher
Every way I twist and turn to make it right
I end up with a head filled with doubt
Where my hopes and my dream are unable to come true
Been given every trick in the book
Forgotten any lesson I´ve been taught
I am soon to be seen as somewhat of a joke

Higher and higher and higher
Higher then we´ve ever been before

Painted up a picture in my head
Before I know I´ve spent most of the day
Somewhere distant from here working issues that ain´t there
Have you ever felt like life slips through your hands
A struggle for control, to take a stand
To make time here worth while, she said take a look around

Higher and higher and higher
Higher then we´ve ever been before

It´s taken me so long to get it right
But in this light
Able to breathe out
I would do it all over again
To reach this hight
Track Name: Sparkling Sun
Yeah you see me walking down your street
and you surely don’t know what it means
im gonna show you
I gotta show you

I don’t say that Im your chosen one
But I do know how to sing this song
Because I wrote it
You wrote it to yeah


It’s the sparkling sun
It´s the sparkling sun

No you don’t know what I am all about
It’s the heat that I´m carrying and it’s a lot
Im gonna tell you
I gotta tell you
Track Name: Going Home
Look at the state of you
Trying to act so cool
Playing us as your fools
I see right through you
Thoughts so insecure
Hidden behind a bright shining armour

Down the drink lets go home
You shouldn´t be on your own
You´re far to sweet to be all alone
Stay the night if you want
I´ll spend it all in your company
I`m far to good to be here alone

I hear your words
They start to ware me down
Leaving me vulnerable to your charm
Come to me
I feel how I haul you in
I know that you will win in the end

Down the drink lets go home
You shouldn´t be on your own
You´re far to sweet to be all alone
Stay the night if you want
I´ll spend it all in your company
You´re far to good to be here alone

We dance around each other
With steps rehearsed to perfection
From our years of experience

Look at the state of you
Everything you say or do
has me acting like fool

Down the drink lets stay home
You shouldn´t be on your own
You´re far to sweet to be all alone
Stay the night if you want
I´ll spend it all in your company
I´m far to good to be here alone
I´m far to good to be alone
Track Name: Violet Haze
Wintertime, spring time, summertime
I guess then we fall
Dragonfly caught inside a magic box
Inside a jelly jar
Peppermint and candy
Will come to us real handy when we starve

Go with the wind and smile with a grin
Sign your name in colours of rain

When you don’t like the way things go
When you don’t like the way things go
When you twist and turn all day
When you´ve lost your track and all way
What about me and my way
What about him
Will you let him stay?

Satellite of silver spoons
You lit it up and fill my room
The sweetest taste upon your tongue
Now you know I was the one
Peppermint and candy
Will come to us real handy when we starve

Go with the wind and smile with a grin
You´re surrounded by Violet Haze

When you don’t like the way things go
When you don’t like the way things go
When you twist and turn all day
When you´ve lost your track and all way
What about me and my way
What about him
Will you let him stay?
Track Name: Better Than I
I follow you around
From room to room, stuck to your side
To make each moment count
To store your image in my mind for the next few nights

I watch you while you´re sleeping
You seem so at peace
With every breath you take
You make me want to stay awake for a little bit more

Keep me close at heart
I´ll leave but never go far
Days will fly, you´ll see
I´ll be home sooner than you think
No words are needed to be spoken
You know me better than I do myself

You follow me around
From room to room I hear the sound
Of your voice in my head
A sarky comment makes me giggle to myself

Keep me close at heart
I´ll leave but never go far
Days will fly, you´ll see
I´ll be home sooner than you think
No words could tell you how I´m feeling
But you know me better than I do myself
Track Name: Down
Black and white, a moody mind to tame
Clearing dust, soon to make a fuss
Roaming free, wont walk no lead indeed
Sleepy eyes opens wide to plead

Down where we are
Down where we are
Down where we are
She´s the leader of our destruction

Primadonna hiding round the corner
Lashing out at those who pass her by
In your face the perfect place to sprawl about
Taking turns as she purrs her heart out

Down where we are
Down where we are
Down where we are
She´s the leader of our destruction
Track Name: Kings and Queens
Catching a ride from point A to C
Never mind our speed
Give me a fortune and I will succeed
I will bow to my needs

We will be kings and queens
From behind our screens
We will view our eyes to sleep
Cradled from knowing that we wont miss a thing
The faster we go the harder it is to control

Marching along with squares in our eyes
Minds drawn to the light
I will stay connected, keep track of my domain
Where no thought is in vain

We will be kings and queens
From behind our screens
We will view our eyes to sleep
Cradled by knowing that we wont miss out
The faster we go the harder it is to control

I take my seat, put up my feet
Scratching any surface within my reach
Peace and quite will stress me out
Will turn me into a cat on a hot tin roof

Catching a ride from point A to Z
Barely pausing to breathe

We will be kings and queens
From behind our screens
We will view our eyes to sleep
Cradled by the comfort of knowing we wont miss out
The faster we go the harder it is to control
Track Name: World
Long before you were born
Were they waiting for a boy
Little one that will glow
In heavy times for them to know

That the world
Keeps on turning
And the smiles
In your eyes burning
Set sail now
Sail right
To the sunny side of life

Wear your shoelaces free
At the bottom of the sea
Under pink skies of fate
Did they bring you much too late

That the world
Keeps on turning
And the smiles
In your eyes burning
Set sail now
Sail right
To the sunny side of life
Track Name: A House of our Own
In a house of our own, heaven would be
In a house of our own, just you and me
In a house of our own, we wouldn´t have to keep things quiet
In a house of our own, we would set our own rules
In a house of our own, live life as we choose
In a house of our own, leaving our old ways behind us

Where we could sleep till late
In the mess we´ve made with no worries
Stuffing our faces full
with take aways while in rags
Living our lives for the day

In a house of our own, our friends come around
In a house of our own, we´d turn up the sound
In a house of our own, our neighbours can shout best they wanted
In a house of our own, we´d party till dawn
In a house of our own, pass out on the lawn
In a house of our own, this will be our new beginning

Where we could sleep till late
In the mess we´ve made with no worries
Stuffing our faces full
with take aways while in rags
Living our lives for the day

We wouldnt feel, wouldnt feel alone
We wouldnt feel, wouldnt feel alone

In a house of our own, our young´s have flown out
In a house of our own, busy living their lives
In a house of our own, struggling with our new found freedom

Walking through all this space
With heavy heads filled with worries
Wondering what to do now there´s no one moaning at you
Were getting through another day
Track Name: Once
Once a riddle left to solve
A mystery to unfold
The centre of my world

Once a song inside my head
My final thought in bed
The beginning of my day

It´s been a long time passing
I´ve failed to wisen up

Faught with my all to stay on track
With a river to hold back
All senses left in shock


Overflowing with regrets
Lots spoken, nothing said
Paid in the years I´ve bled

A rocky search to come across
An image never lost
An echo from the past

It´s been a long time passing
I fail to wisen up

With every new day thoughts will pull me back in time
let feelings shine on through
I step outside this shell created round me
Leave the door wide open for you to come on through
for you to come on through

Once a riddle left to solve
A mystery to unfold
The centre of my world

Once a song inside my head
My final thought in bed
The beginning of my day
