Track Name: Amazed
Nothing is the same again
We grow and begin to end

Fireworks, fireflies, first kiss, sunrise, sunrise

What was the last time you got amazed?
What was the last time you got amazed, really amazed?
Too long ago

Nothing as great as before
What was once good is no more

The bluest seas, the infinite skies, the blissful sound of being alive
Wish upon a shooting star

What was the last time you got amazed?
What was the last time you got amazed, really amazed?
Too long ago
Too long ago
Track Name: Never Shown
I was standing there as we talked before
I was standing there as we talked before
I was standing there waiting on my own
I was standing there but you never shown, never shown

I was standing there as we talked before
I was standing there as we talked before
I was standing there waiting all alone
I was standing there but you never shown, never shown

Why am I like this?
Always in need of my peers
Always calling and never being called
Always giving and never receiving anything back at all
Track Name: God
If I could reach the distant stars
Steal the secrets from God’s heart
You’d find them all by your bed at night
But how to give what is not mine?

And if I once could rewind time
Back on that sunny day in my mind
To collect a way from the inside of a shell
Of never ever be apart

Everything I’ve ever made
And every step I’ll ever take
It all leads to you

And when it’s you to seek for stars
The answers for your childish heart
I hope you see my silence cries
It’s not the end, it’s just the start

Everything I’ve ever made
And every step I’ll ever take
It all leads to

You and me
Belong to the sea
Under the bright clouds and the sun
Hand in hand, together we run
Track Name: It comes in waves
True happiness only comes
When we search for something
We can never have
We can never

What’s hidden from us
Is what we want to see
What’s far is what we want here

What about here?
What about now?
If there’s a way to keep it
Just tell me how

Can I really feel what is next to me?
What is by my side
Can I really see?
Can I really see?
Can I really?
Track Name: Starvation
Stand a stand-by life, little stepchild
And by the gates of imagination
All I found was starvation
It’s been too long now
It’s been too long now
Since the time real smiles were captured by our eyes

I’m down the dark road of an endless debt
An empty way of living a life
Stolen from somebody else
Because since that day
I belong to a role that I can play
Even more when people do their best just to hear me saying

I’m below of everything you want
I’m below of all the things you dreamt
I’m below
And every time I try to get out of this black hole
You grab me and push me down

Can’t you see it’s such a heavy burden for me?
And before high expectations
My answer was starvation
It’s been too long now
It’s been too long now
And still I cry for God’s mistakes
I cry for run over friends

Try to face it, try to face it
I know it’s been hard for both of us
Try to face it, try to face it
I know it’s been hard for both of us

I’m below of everything you want
I’m below of all the things you dreamt
I’m below
And every time I try to get out of this black hole
You grab me and push me down
Push me down
Push me down
Track Name: The Club
Back on those days
The Club was everything we had
We used to pray
To the week to pass fast
And Saturday to come soon
And bring us 11 p.m.

Once inside there
You could be somebody else
Even pretend
You were so special
That a song could be played
For and only because of you

How that I miss you
Wish I could come back there
How that I miss you
Want to meet myself again
How that I miss you…

Back on those days
The Club was everything we had
We used to dance
And act like if there was no ending
Of the night
Of our youth
No ending at all
Track Name: Caroline of the stars
Caroline of the stars
I will find you
Wherever you go

Caroline of the stars
I will find you
Wherever you go
Wherever you go

It’s true that I love you
It’s true that I miss you
Whenever my soul is not around yours

It’s true that I love you
It’s true that I call you
In the middle of a dream
Just to wake up and see you’re still there
Track Name: Here I am
And if sun rises everyday
There’s no difference to go or stay
It doesn’t matter, it’s all the same
So why should I care?

Here I am
Here I am

I didn’t speak so you did not hear
You didn’t explain so it was not clear
You didn’t stop so I kept going
You didn’t ask where

Here I am
Here I am
Track Name: Stalagmite
I wanted something, yes, I wanted it all
The distance’s so unreal
I bled on the cross I carried for so long
As if it was my will
Can I forget the day when I promised I
I would never forget?
I try to let it go

So I concealed the prize
In hope of someone to find
I’d love to hear this voice, amplified

Moulder with comfort and abnegation in
The self-pitty pit I create
And as the bombs fall down I can hear their sound
But can not feel my ground shake
As I cross the door, raise high the roof beam,
I realize it’s one more mistake
And feel I can’t move on

So I pushed myself through
I state I can not abide
And all to hear my voice, amplified
Track Name: What happened to us?
I used to like the time when we were so small
Drawing pictures on the wall
I used to like the time when we thought we were good
Yet misunderstood

I used to like the time when we could talk
Without speaking a word
I used to like the time when we felt the touch
And enjoyed it so much

Tell me what happened here
Tell me what happened dear
I thought we got something
Something good
But now it’s suddenly gone
Tell me what happened to us
What happened to us?

I used to like the time when together we fought
The rest of the world
I used to like the time when we built to share
‘Cause we didn’t really care

Tell me what happened here
Tell me what happened dear
I thought we got something
Something real
But now it’s suddenly gone
Tell me what happened to us
What happened to us?
Track Name: Not there
See
It’s only me by your side
See
There’s no one else

No one could follow you
You climbed so high
A mountain top
That only existed in your mind

See
There’s no one there
Here
It’s only me on my side
See
Just me

Chasing it
For my whole life
And now I see
What a waste of time

See
It was not there

Have I failed?
