Track Name: Come on over here
Winter snowflakes are falling upon your tired head
they are pretty but all you can think of is your bed
you are a star, brilliantly playing the game
but that old scar, right on your heart
stays always there, just the same

Come on over here
and lay your head on my shoulder baby
it's OK, why don't you stay
let me take care of you
come on over here
and lay your head on my shoulder baby
it's alright, turn off the light
i will take care of you

People treat you as if you were sitting on a throne
it's insane and all you want to do is to go home
let's go someplace
somewhere we'd never be found
anonymously
we would be free
living right under the clouds

Come on over here
and lay your head on my shoulder baby
it's OK, why don't you stay
let me take care of you
come on over here
and lay your head on my shoulder baby
it's alright, turn off the light
i will take care of you
Track Name: Ghosts
Ghosts are haunting my dreams
nothing's what it seems
can this be real?
TV sitcoms or the news
as long as they get their views
what do they care?

We sit back in our comfort zone
and entertain ourselves
with superficial lies
we shop, we work, have busy lives
important things to do
but inside something dies

Ghosts, I see them on TV
hollow eyes that do not see
accusing me
Bomb, attack, behead, destroy
man or woman, girl or boy
we've stopped to feel

Overwhelmed by misery
hearts grow dark and cold
a robot army without souls
Fueled by hate, no space for love
endless battles fought
and peace cannot be bought

Ghosts, I see them on the street
pass me by on hurried feet
they're you and me
Track Name: It's you
Come into my bed, baby
in each other's arms we''ll fall asleep
and in this sleep I'll dream of you
like I always do
I'll see your face with bright blue eyes
and I'll forget all my doubts as this image flies
in and out of my sweetest dream
I'm not as secure as I might seem

My friend, my muse, my love, my fool
lay next to me and sleep
My guide, my guarding angel, it's you
I love to hear you breathe

And when the morning comes again, too soon
I wish we could stay forever in my room
I'll watch how you slowly wake up
and won't have to worry about my make-up

You're the thief who stole my heart and makes
me wish we never were apart
and although I know you've already found your love
You are still the only one I'm dreaming of

My friend my muse my love my fool
Lay next to me and sleep
My guide my guarding angel it's you
I love to hear you breathe

My friend my muse my love my fool
Lay next to me and sleep
My guide my guarding angel it's you
let me show you how I feel
Track Name: Sweetest illusion
I love the colors of your eyes when you're standing in the light
I love the way you breathe in the middle of the night
I love it that you laugh when I tell a bad joke
I love it that you read my thoughts as if they were a book

You're the only one who causes so much confusion
I just can take my eyes off you
You're my sweetest illusion
You're the only one who makes me feel so high
I just can't take my eyes off you
You're my reason why

I love it that you're there when I am feeling down
I love it that you take the train to visit me in my town
I love to listen to your voice when you sing me a song
It tells me that it's next to you where I belong

You're the only one who causes so much confusion
I just can take my eyes off you
You're my sweetest illusion
You're the only one who makes me feel so high
I just can't take my eyes off you
You're my reason why
Track Name: The dogs downstairs
He smiled a smile of secrecy
His lips were cold as ice
I dreamed that I was dreaming
But someday he'll pay the price

His hands smelled of gasoline
And they were rough as sand
He stole into my darkened room
I couldn't understand

The dogs downstairs are barking
like they have something to say
Hush child, don't you cry
We're here, we're here to stay

You spell out stories on my skin
with callused fingertips
We play and share a wonderland
of knights and battleships

Your old and should know better
But history repeats
itself if we're not careful
under ironed children's sheets

The dogs downstairs are barking
like they have something to say
Hush child, don't you cry
Don't run, don't run away

I don't want to forgive you
I give you the gift of goodbye
I watch the sun break through the clouds
Today is the first day of the rest of my life

The dogs downstairs are barking
like they have something to say
Come child, come outside
Come outside to play
Track Name: Memory
I ache
Your scent's still on the pillow
where your head used to lay
The clock ticks away
countless empty seconds
I know you're gone
but all I see is your face
There's a silent throbbing where
your fingers used to linger
In my dreams I taste your lips
I wake up and it hurts

My memory is crying with thoughts of you
I often think of us together
do you remember it too?

That summer road trip underneath the blazing sun
Running barefoot in the rain
Those days are gone
I'd like to go back to where all our dreams took place
Simpler times with you
The future but a haze

My memory is crying with thoughts of you
I often think of us together
do you remember it too?
Track Name: Love is love
I'm swept away
lost in you
or so they say
sweet, forbidden fruit
I'm a snake and you're a brute

But like the stars up in the sky
the universe is in our eyes
ooh, they don't know
to let it go
love is love

Deep in the heart of night
I call your name
I'm not ashamed
Just lay down your worried mind
wrap your arms around me
Our love is blind

And like the sun between the clouds
I hear you smile without a sound
ooh, they don't know
to let it go
Love is love

And when the silence was broken
they hurled at us
words unspoken
They stood with their backs turned
to a pair of dreamers in a noisy world

And like the birds up in the tree
I sing for you, for you and me
ooh, this I know
Let it go
Love is love
Track Name: If the world would end tomorrow
If the world would end tomorrow
what would happen to our dreams?
Would our memories go on living?
What with all our hopes and fears?
Would our spirits roam the heavens?
Would we be together there?
Or would the end mean that there's nothing,
only darkness everywhere?

If today would be our last one,
would we do things differently?
Would we spend our time with loved ones
and really show them how we feel?
Would we focus on the good things
and let go of all the bad?
Choose joy instead of anger,
and be content with what we had?

Peace and love is what we really need
not more stuff but joy & serenity

How much longer before we see what's going on?
Let's open our eyes before it's all gone

If the world would end tomorrow
I would spend today with you
I'd really notice how you love me
and how you show it in everything you do
I'd stop taking things for granted
and make the most of what was left
I'd finally realize what's important
and let go of all the rest

Peace and love is what we really need
not more stuff but joy & serenity

How much longer before we see what's going on?
Let's open our eyes before it's all gone
Track Name: Patiently waiting
So you're leaving on Saturday
oh I wish, I wish, I wish that you could stay
just a little longer
Forever would be nice

We could play cards every day
why do you have to go away
you've only just arrived
same story every time

We'll be patiently waiting for you
there's nothing else that we could
possibly do
we'll go on, we'll go on living here
at our very best
while you are there
growing up way too fast

so you're leaving once again
I'm not going to complain
as long as you are happy
everything's OK with me

But I'm feeling kind of blue
whenever I hear that same old news
that my baby brother will disappear in just
a couple of days
from here

We'll be patiently waiting for you
there's nothing else that we could
possibly do
we'll go on, we'll go on living here
at our very best
while you are there
growing up way too fast
Track Name: Sunny days
Long ago, when we were in love
We were wild & free, had little, but it was enough
On the road, the wind in our hair
We shared salty kisses, life without a care

Sunny days, stretched out forever
You and me, just happy to be together

Through the years, unnoticably
little things changed, we were so busy
Until one day I looked up to see
that the boy I once loved was a stranger to me

Sunny days, gone forever
You and me, feeling alone together

Our love, once a gift send from above
is confusing me, is bruising me
It hurts me just to see how you are close to me, yet feel so far
We”re afraid to feel and to reveal our true selves to each other

Darling I remember those days
Before darkness fell and we parted ways
The future seemed so far away
How were we to know how quickly would come someday

Those sunny days of our honeymoon
make me think: How did it get late so soon? Oh...

My love, let's make up for time we've lost
Let's start over now, let us learn how to heal those lines we've crossed
Once more, let us go out and explore
Let's go to the see, be wild and free
Just like we were before
Track Name: Song for Daniel
When you kiss me, I forget the world
and everything around it
Holding you so close to me
feels better than I ever dreamed

When I'm with you, my heart beats so fast
and I smile without a reason
whn I look into your eyes
time seems to fly

I never thought this would happen
but it did, and i'm glad
because you are the best man
I could ever have
Because you are the best man I could ever have.
