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

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

Domestic 04:10
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

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

In silence 03:41
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

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

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

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

Hero 03:53
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

Norah 02:48
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

Awakening 05:24
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

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
