Track Name: Tides
I never believed that heaven is the place to be,
there was a better place for me, near to you.
Where things go wrong I tend to hang around,
when I'm alone I keep myself down, down, down.

Now that I'm fighting all my fears,
still holding in the tears.
I try to turn my back on the past,
because none of this will last and you're not coming back.

Like a spark, a subtle flame in the dark.
Giving life to my worn out heart.
I lost faith in the middle of the night,
but tomorrow I'll be rising with the tides,
oh tomorrow I'll be rising with the tides.

I don't believe that this world will ever change,
but I know that I can change myself.
And with us baby it was just the same,
and in the end there is no one to blame, we simply lost our way.

In a way it is funny how things come and go,
just like the sun, and we are moving on.
I turn my back on the past,
because nothings going to last and I'm not going back.

Like a spark, a subtle flame in the dark.
Giving life to my worn out heart.
I lost faith in the middle of the night,
but tomorrow I'll be rising with the tides,
oh tomorrow I'll be rising with the tides.

And I remember our first night in the rain,
somehow the rain never stopped since then.
My life will never be the same,
but at least now I can see the sun again,
Oh I can see the sun again,
I can see the sun again,
I can see the sun again.
Track Name: Open Door
And now that I miss you so,
I am packing up my bags and leaving home,
onto a road that may be made of sticks and stones,
I'll go.

My way, and what made me stay,
it has fallen with the sun into the waves,
oh but I will keep the memory of your face,
always.

'Cause I don't know, oh if I'll ever understand,
how things go, because I'm just a simple man.
And I don't know, oh what all this will come to in the end,
but right in front of me there is an open door,
so I'll take my chance.

And now that I'm all alone,
I am trying to find the words and write them down,
and I'm telling myself to let go.

And if I make a change,
I'll become what I deserve.
Oh I keep getting better,
but sometimes still it hurts.

'Cause I don't know, oh if I'll ever understand,
how things go, because I'm just a simple man.
And I don't know, oh what all this will come to in the end,
but right in front of me there is an open door,
so I'll take my chance.
Track Name: Secrets
Settle down,
before you lose your mind.
Breathe in,
and hold tight.

There's a world,
at your feet,
with lots of secrets,
for you to find.

So hold on,
tanke your time,
and you'll discover,
life.

A million voices,
in your head.
A thousand words,
but nothing said.

The world keeps changing,
with every day,
but it's her smile,
you can't forget.

So hold on,
take your time,
erase the darkness,
from your mind.
And what harms you,
leave it behind,
and you'll discover,
life.

Make your way,
be the river in the valley,
be the cloud,
be free wherever you go,
and wherever you may end up, always know,
it is never too late to move on,
oh it's never too late to move on,
and it's always OK to come home.
Track Name: Small Steps
Just the blink of an eye and the sun is gone,
and the darkness puts a pressure on my chest.
When the flowers have withered on the vine,
oh you have build the brigde on which we've met.

And all my life,
I've been looking for the answers in the past.
Counting the days,
missing all the moments and losing all the memories.

But these are all small steps I take,
as I am on my way to you,
and everything I told you is true.
That small bump inside me,
everytime that I see you,
tell me what have we to lose.

Just the blink of an eye and the chance is gone,
and the emptiness is growing so fast.
The years are passing my legs are numb,
not a single word from your lips, just silent regret.

And all my life,
I've been looking for the answers in the past.
Counting the days,
missing all the moments and losing all the memories.

But these are all small steps I take,
as I am on my way to you,
and everything I told you is true.
That small bump inside me,
everytime that I see you,
tell me what have we to lose.

Give me one, oh give me one,
good reason why I shouldn't make you stay.
When they're gon, oh when they're gone,
we won't get back every second that we waste.
Give me one, oh give me one,
good reason why I shouldn't make you stay.
When they're gon, oh when they're gone,
we won't get back every second that we waste,
oh we won't get back every second that we waste,
we won't get back every second that we waste.
Track Name: Kiss Me
When everything,
crumbles around me,
I am,
stumbling on my humble feet.
Dark nights,
and I can't see a goddamn thing.
Hold me tight,
be my queen, make me king.

And the clouds are painting,
pictures to the sky,
got your silhouette and smile on my mind.

Like the first sunray above the top of the trees,
and like the shallow waves where the ocean meets the sand, oh darling,
hold my hand and cast your spell on me,
and kiss me.

I keep,
losing myself in this.
'Cause you are,
like the wind when I am just a leaf.

And the sun is painting,
pictures to the sky,
I got your silhouette and smile on my mind.

Like the first sunray above the top of the trees,
and like the shallow waves where the ocean meets the sand, oh darling,
hold my hand and cast your spell on me,
and kiss me.

Oh you're tearing me apart,
because everything I want,
is to fall into your arms.

When everything,
is falling around me,
will you,
be there to fall with me.
Track Name: Settle Down
It’s been a long summer,
feels like everything changed.
Closed a door opened another,
found a hint of purpose on the way.

And I got to see,
my old friends a lot,
they really helped to fix
my broken heart.

But still it’s a long way to go.
And still sometimes I feel lost.

Settle down,
take a deep breath and let go.
Because sometimes your heart is a mess
and you just have to hold.
Settle down,
take a deep breath and let go.
Because sometimes your heart is a mess
and you just have to hold.

I was tired of dreaming
and then I found you.
You gave me a reason to change who I was
and to start over new.

But still it’s a long way to go.
And still sometimes I feel lost.

Settle down,
take a deep breath and let go.
Because sometimes your heart is a mess
and you just have to hold.
Settle down,
take a deep breath and let go.
Because sometimes your heart is a mess
and you just have to hold.
You just have to hold.

Settle down,
take a deep breath and let go.
Because sometimes your heart is a mess
and you just have to hold.
