Track Name: Carry me Home
Carry Me Home

Veins in the valley
Pains from the past
Born in the Valley
Shadows never last

Don’t give up on me now
These days are breaking me down
Call you calloused in caring
Carry me home

Snow on the mountains
Words that never last
We’re raised below the mountains
I learned to cover my tracks

Don’t give up on me now
Days are breaking me down
Call you calloused in caring
Carry me home
Carry me home

No lines are left
All signes are calling
Be enough for someone
Be enough for me
At the end
It’s all I wanted

Carry me home
Track Name: Haunt my Body
Haunt My Body (Bm)


So you see me, as your fingers haunt my body
a wicked rhyme, I simple line when a girl wants what she’s keeping
and needs

And then there’s that, she came on like a heart attack
When you see smoke, a fire woke in a boy that wants her deeply and sweet. Oh so sweet.

There’s a right way and a wrong way, and both are strange.

I’ll let you bother me
I’ll let you torture me
I’ll let you scratch my back till it burns and bleeds
Oh, bear it all, till I say please, more please
And I know, that you like this more than me

(oooooh…..)

When I’m alone, there’s a hollow type of vertigo.
I run my nails down my arms and leave light trails that soothe me.
deep, oh so deep.

There’s a right way and a wrong way, and both are strange

I’ll let you bother me
I’ll let you torture me
I’ll let you scratch my back till it burns and bleeds
Oh, bear it all, till I say please, more please
And I know, that you like this more than me
Track Name: Stay with me Lover
Stay with me lover

Calm down, girl, you’re shaking
hands please, hold on to me
caged it up, all for nothing
waves that crash, break on me

fall, your head on my chest
all the wrongs, don’t believe that you’re less
stay with me, while you’re drowning
this to shall pass, put it all on me

undo your knots and your weights
the walls are on fire and its burning your face
here we are, stay with me lover
till its gone

breath in, don’t forget youre alive
breath out, all it takes to survive
stranger things, will befall us
mistakes in your past, same as me

undo your knots and your weights
the walls are on fire and its burning your face
here we are, stay with me lover, till its gone

take the rain, the wrong, the salt and the snow
the pain, the songs, the lack of control
bound up, shackles and hearts
the wrong words, can tear you apart
I’m right I’m wrong, I’m sane I will try
I’m on fire, I bleed
take me alive

remind me…I’m alive, I’m alive

undo your knots and your weights
the walls are on fire and its burning your face
here we are, stay with me lover, till its gone
Track Name: Staring at the Sun
Starring at the Sun


Come now, sit down and listen to my voice
even if my words are wrong, and you don’t want to
with every expectation of obvious defeat
I wonder what you’re thinking
as you’re starring right through me

See my body, lying next to you
as you’re starring up at sunshine, no no
don’t like twice, don’t look now
we have something in common
but it wont stop a crowd
from turning and turning
say it once
from burning and burning
I hope this saves us

I said, hey! my head is shaking
cause you’re right..yeah you’re right,
I swear to god you’re right
there’s nothing I can do now
nothing I can say
see it all around me
nothing’s gone my way

Come now, sit down and listen to my voice
even if my words are wrong, and you don’t want to
with every expectation of obvious defeat
I wonder what you’re thinking
as you’re starring right through me
as you’re starring right through me
as you’re starring right through me

I said hey, my head is shaking
I said, hey my head is shaking
cause youre right
yeah youre right
said youre right
yeah youre right
I swear to god you’re right
Track Name: So Far from Here
So Far From Here

There’s something in my blood that loves leaving
No goodbye’s, look back’s or holding on
Maybe it’s the gray, or just the cold that hangs so long
Or something new that’s pushing me so strong

Where were you when I was at my cheapest
Where was I when you knew yourself the best
I’m waiting on the day when the sun is at it’s height
That it got so hard to look into your eyes

Where are the signs that you were showing
I hold on to the moments like souvenirs
We’d turn out the lights, and watch the cars we would drive
So far, so very far from here
We’d take back roads, turn out the coast so far, so very far from here

In the background Ive been waiting for you to find me
Hanging on to your words like an old song
The longer that you weep over those promises we’d keep
Are we going, are we going, I don’t know

Where are the signs that you were showing
I hold on to the moments like souvenirs
We’d turn out the lights, and watch the cars we would drive
So far, so very far from here
We’d take back roads, turn out the coast so far, so very far from here


Taking on the night isn’t easy
We’d brave it all and listen to our songs
When the backdrop of the night is the city
We’d brave it all and listen to our songs
and go on and on and on and on so long
We’d go on and on and on so long
we’d go on and on…so long
Track Name: Sing with Me
Sing with Me

Looking down, my heart of nothing
There’s a whole where your presence was
Lines in my eyes, growing old
Hoping someone will guide me home

Laugh while we’re dancing, hold on tight
Grab your waist, and we’ll sing through the night
It’s all for you, live like we’re dying
Light as air, shine like diamonds

oh…sing with me
ohhhhh

Light it up, stars are candles
Singing low like their all a crowd
How ya doing, where’d I go wrong
Can’s help thinking, are you still so strong…

oh, sing with me
ohhhhh

I know now, time’s are changing
some may leave, some may stay
you were something, like no other
remember me, when we’re older

oh…sing with me
ohhhhhh

(first vere)
hoping someday you’ll drive me home
Track Name: Doorways
Doorways

oh god, you’re breaking my heart again
pulling me under
taking me over
oh god, this place is a punishment
it takes all i could have spent
pulling me backwards

you’re here, and then you’re gone

oh god, here I go again
I never want it to happen
I swear it never ends
you’re here, and then you’re gone

now I’m walking through doorways
spent another night, though I should have known beter
oh, I’m living it both ways
the night is a dagger that cuts through the center
oh…it’s in my hands

oh god, my hand’s on your heart now
the light and the dark arouse
Places we can’t afford, but now
I’m here…I’m here…

now I’m walking through doorways
spent another night, though I should have known beter
oh, I’m living it both ways
the night is a dagger that cuts through the center
oh you’re spinning me backwards
your face like an angel, I should have known better
I hope your saying the same thing
the stars and the moonlight bring us together
I’m….right…(here)

old, and brave…our bodies slowly age
just hold on to me, the night, the radio will play
control is lost on me, breath out
hold on, hold on, pour it out on me, this time.
Track Name: I'll Follow You
I’ll follow you


I’ll follow you anywhere that you go, Tell me and I’ll be there
The moon is high, and the lights are low. Kiss me like the sun in your hair
Hold out…my heart. It’s yours if you dare
Heavy and wasted it’s always been scared
Waiting for you, naked and bare to the bone



It’s out of my hands, but you’re in my heart. Way down where the best things lie
I’m all out, of excuses. I can’t tell which things are right.
Wake me up in the morning light, my hands between your thighs.
Slow down the sunrise, it’s too late to kiss goodbye



Shutter to think, you could’ve walked right by
as I studder my steps, and fumble my lines
you’re care free ….and crazy
I hold my breath and your face in the palm of my hands


Don’t give up, you’re a light for someone
Oh..it’s enough
that I buried my heart, deep down inside of your chest


I’ll follow you anywhere that you go
Tell me and I’ll be there
Track Name: In Your Arms
In Your Arms

here we are, gently fading
hands on your face as you slowly fall asleep
rest your soul, I’ll kiss you softly
reach out to me as your eyes look for a dream

its all I wanted, its all I needed
we left it all and ate the heart out of the night
now I’m here, I’ll watch you fall
into the light of another atmosphere


I’ll give it all for a moment to be with you
laying perfect in your arms
I’ve lived enough to know how much I need this
to fall asleep in your arms


now its late, time is calling
I want to sleep, but its better here with you
and then you roll and we make out just like pieces
of a puzzle made from someone elses dream

I’ll give it all for a moment to be with you
laying perfect in your arms
I’ve lived enough to know how much I need this
to fall asleep in your arms
I’ll give it all for a moment to be with you
laying peaceful in your arms
I’ve lived enough to know how much I need this
to fall asleep in your arms
oh, I’ll fall asleep in your arms
