Track Name: Ruins in Bloom
what to do with a heart and soul
when inside they bear a hole
but love... mmmm but love?

how can you lose what you don't own
how can you grieve what cannot die
at all mmm at all?

yet all this pain that i do feel
well it is true and it is here
for real for real 
a stone is sat inside of me 
a stone is sat inside of me
but let me tell you
let me sing it now

that every day spent down here
when all you wish is just not to be
well, it's a miracle to me
and you do that magic daily dear
it's time, time you take the credit for
all that strength inside of you
for out of that love, the most beautiful flowers are born


how can you find your way
when your soul don't wanna stay a day
mmmm longer?

why do i trip on letting go
of the reasons why that i don't know
…mmmmm at all?

yet i don't think that holding on
to the ones i love is all that
wrong, wrong
a song is sung inside of me
a song is sung inside of me
a song is sung inside of me
a song is sung inside of me
and let me tell you
let me sing it now
Track Name: Dorian
Dorian, the brush is in your hands 
and so the knife is
Dorian, i'm just a frame holding your canvas
carve in, Carli
carve in, darling...

..but it won't change the man you see
it just shows who you don't wanna be
but you can change this game
the brush is in your hands
and i am just i'm just a frame
...if only you would mirror in me


Dorian… what it takes to be a man
you tell me.
i believe.. in all your hidden qualities
your fears fear.

you're my jesus in the desert
buddha sleeping under the tree
you my beloved judas
can say no the silver dear
and trade those petty treats
for a deeper peace of mind
the man you wanna be
is someone you can surely find

...and the man you wanna be
is right there in your hands
you just have to make him, dear
chisel, Michelangelo
you're both father and the son
time to turn your own lights on
and i still somehow believe in you..

and i am so damn, oh i am so damn
oh i am so damn proud of you
Track Name: Candle Lights and Breeze
Candle lights and breeze

i'd stay for a while
to watch the gold of your hair
grow into silver
id' stay for a while
to watch the canyons carve
the corners of your smile
oh i would stay for a while
if you'd only want me here...

our shadows dance to
candle lights and breeze
our shadows dance to
candle lights and breeze
our shadows dance to
candle lights and breeze
our shadows dance to
candle lights… candle lights…

i'd stay for a while
when all the chooses are made
digital pictures fade
i would stay
listen to the rain
up in your attic
listen to the rain
with you

I'd stay for a while
to watch the gold of your hair
grow into silver
Track Name: Cookie Jar
Cookie Jar

If i would tell you
i were obsessing over you
i know, i know that deep inside
i know you wouldn't mind at all
for we all love to be The One
and we all love to wear a crown
it hurts so when it falls…

and this is your most guarded secret
it's so deeply intertwined
tell me tell me can u keep it
from your inner mind
and this is your most guarded secret
the entire human kind would lie
but you still pull my smile
for you are like a child
with his hands in a cookie jar


if i would tell you
i weren't thinking about you so much
not so much anymore
i know you'd be surprised
that you don't like the news
don't like them after all
for it is me you love

and this is your most guarded secret
it's so deeply intertwined
tell me tell me can u keep it
from your inner mind
and this is your most guarded
secret the entire human
kind would lie

but you still pull my smile
for you are like a child
oh you are like a child love
oh you're just like a child
with his hands in a cookie jar
still claiming you don't like the sweets, love
Track Name: Sailorman
Sailorman

There came a boy, sun in his smile
and sea breeze in his hair
Said princess take me for a while
i'll sail you anywhere

and off they went,a nutshell boat
far into the sea
sailed so far until the shore
was just a memory

but then one day she woke alone
abandoned in her wreck
her craving heart knew from the start
that he's not coming back so

she's looking for a new
sailorman to lead her route
she's looking for a new sailor
but to tell the truth,
she's still missing you

no compass and no rows he left
- she whispered to the moon,
sighed a while over that theft
thinking what to do

then of her dress she's made a sail
the breeze saw and stopped by
he said - tell my princess, where you wanna sail
i'll take you for a ride so

she has found her true
sailorman to lead the route
she has found her true
sailforman to lead the route
she has found her true sailor
but to tell the truth
it takes some time to grow them roots
just take your time to grow your roots
Track Name: Angel
Angel

you're my angel you come unexpectedly
i bare my soul to heaven found
you're my angel you shine
oh so heavenly
you're shining to remind me
when my soul is blinded
you remind me

when i am lone lone lone
lone as i can be
you bring the joy and pour it over me
when i am lone lone lone
lone as i can be you are
you are there with me
you are there with me

you're my angel you come
oh so quietly
i barely notice you around
do you long for my soul
the way i long for yours
over this apparent distance?

when i'm weak and hiding
then you come to find me

you're my angel you come unexpectedly
tell the rain it drummed enough
enough upon my window
and no matter where we go
we go together my love
always you and i

and you can always make that call
and i will always take that line
and in my dreams we'll surely meet
where everything's all right
you can always make that call
come and reach me
come to teach me
everything i don't know
Track Name: The Bravest Man I Know
The Bravest Man I Know


the bravest man i've ever met
he had some things to regret
he knew well what's a fall
i admired every step
every step he'd take
to slowly rebuild it all

would you take my naked soul
can you steal a smile? he said
could you take it if i kiss you
and you stay a while

'cause i'm just a broken man
'cause i'm just a broken man
but you're the bravest man i've met
you are the bravest man i've met

life it rolls with highs and lows
and sometimes issues a toll
when you are broke, then you try

to find a reason why
not to wave goodbye
and you are here, though i know
you've found none

all we got is a bag of bricks
and you don't sit and whine
'cause life is what you make of it
and you're brilliant, come take me

i'm a lonely doll come take me
i'm a lonely doll
i'm a lonely doll
and you are the bravest man i know
you are the bravest man i know

singing for that parallel universe
playing for another possibility
where the physics said reverse
and the chance said yes to you my dear

you my dear you my dear
yes to you my dear said yes to you
you my dear you my dear
Jesper you're my dear
said yes to you
Track Name: All You Asked Me To
All You Asked Me To


you shut the doors
between us you built a wall
hidden beneath the blanket of your
doubts and fear
leave me alone, no i don't want your company
just go away, just disappear
i've heard you say

and my hands are tied no matter what i do
your panic tide is turning me into
a display of your demons and your pain
and i can't agree it's all we could attain

and i did, now i did all you asked me to
and i did, now i did all you asked me to
is it what you really wanted me to do?
can you cope with your wish coming true?

let's hope you know
you know what you are wishing for
you shut the door
say you don't want me anymore
if i'd believe at least a bit of that was real
then i would leave,
but i just fail to buy that deal

so i redefine the fine art of us two
we are one so don't deny the truth
now i'm gone and still inside of you
can't overwrite the times 
that we've been through

and i did, now i did all you asked me to
and i did, now i did all you asked me to
is it what you really wanted me to do?
can you cope with your wish coming true?
Track Name: Anna's Song
Anna's Song

I would love to write
a spell to heal your heart
and the same magic word
would heal mine too

and your pain is my pain
and your joy is my joy too
and we know of lonely days beyond the words

so i wish upon a star our dreams come true
from that night back in berlin
when you and i for the first time
laughed upon our tragedies
oh my sister trust me please…


…that it will be all fine
and in a little time
our kids will come come back to us
and all the things we learned
wounds healed and burned
and all the tables turned
we know the worth…
…to all the sacred blood we share..

when the things that made your day
don't mean a thing before the pain
it's so hard to find your way
your way again
and when it hits, sister know
you're not alone not anymore
together we, we are joined in this pure love

'cause deep inside of you and me
always lives a memory of two
deepest kind of human love,
bond beyond the death and birth and all

so i wish upon a star our dreams come true
from that night back in berlin
when you and i for the first time
laughed upon our tragedies
oh my sister trust me please…

…that it will be all fine…
Track Name: Lonely Road
Lonely Road


In all the honesty
with everything i feel
it feels like i am giving up

in all the honesty
requiem of a dream
i feel i'll give it all away
all away
drop out on
a minute before the dawn

so go go lonely road
no matter matter where you go
just go, go for i'm told 
that i will get to get to know 
you so utterly,
utterly deeply until I
can't tell you from me
what is you and where is me

to tell you, honestly,
i don't know if it's right
or will it push you even
further away

it feels like giving up
right at the finish line
when biggest dream of mine
is right there, 
oh right there
just one foot around the corner

so go go lonely road
no matter matter where you go
just go, go for i'm old 
and i already go to know 
you so utterly,
utterly completely I
don't need that lesson dear
not once again, i'm already healed
Track Name: Home to Me
Home to Me

It can be so lone and scary
when you're out of ordinary
you feel that you just don't belong

and my heart won't keep the pace
with this isolating place
a fact that i don't get along with
along with but now i notice
now i notice now i know this

that ever since you've been around
this place just has a different sound
it feels like home to me
and no matter where you are
you carry me inside your heart
it is a home to me
your heart it is
a home to me
your heart it is my home

love i know you've been alone
know the weight of that stone
that has been sitting on your soul

and i know you feel the change
in the same way we are strange
don't need the words to understand
we're hand in hand
hand in hand hand in hand
Track Name: Dream Dream
Dream dream

Dream dream
for this surely can't be real
you are me, and i am you
what is up here?

no phone and no internet
could ever come to connect
ones like this
challenging the intellect
am i mad, i do suspect
i do believe that you and me,
we don't need a cure

for baby you see the things i see
and somehow i feel the way you feel
the Elephant Man within my dreams
is taking us far and far and far
baby you see the things i see
and somehow i feel the way you feel
baby i know this ain't a dream
we're wide awake and wild my dear
wide awake and wild

blue-green, the pill that i'm supposed to swallow
they say that it will help
but i don't follow

for i'd rather be a loon,
take you dancing on the moon
some time soon
and you'd rather be a fool
my exception to the rules
one and true
and i believe we don't need a cure

when you're awake, life is a dream
when you're awake then life is a dream
we're wide awake and wild my dear
wide awake and wild
