How does it feel when all you're counting on is scatterbrained
Every wind that you have sailed upon, a hurricane
Every summer you have seen was filled with April rain
It doesn't get easy, don't you know

Fortune smiles on you
You're not watching, dig that hole deeper
Fortune smiles on you
You're not watching, create your own fate

Count your blessings and prepare to change your point of view
All those days that you spend waiting won't come back to you
Take off the glasses that have treated your world black and grey
It doesn't get easy, don't you know

Fortune smiles on you
You're not watching, dig that hole deeper
Fortune smiles on you
You're not watching, create your own fate

Keep raining
'Cause we are blind, 'cause we are tired, 'cause we are blind to fortune's guidance now
It keeps raining, 'cause we are blind, it will keep raining, 'cause we are tired
It keeps raining, 'cause we are blind oh, it will keep raining 'cause we are tired

Fortune smiles on you
You're not watching, dig that hole deeper
Fortune smiles on you
You're not watching, create your own fate

. . .


Silence in the living room
Hours feel like days
Silence when I speak to you
Your a thousands miles away
Crying for real oh yes your worth the prize
Because when the mind gets clouding
I forget about our fights

[Refrein:]
Stay forever, it's never again
My words have been spoken,
It will come to an end
Stay forever, it's never again
My words have been spoken,
It will come to an end

I'll affiche your energy
Running through my veins
Chemical the love I feel
For faces without name
Crying for real Oh, yes your worth the prize
Because when your mind gets clouding
I forget about our fights

[Refrein]

This empty house is not a home
find the will to stand alone
Without your armour
Flesh and blood for turn to stone
find the will to stand alone
And wait to turn away

[Refrein:]
Stay forever, its never again
Our words have been spoken, it will come to an end
Stay forever, its never again
Our words have been spoken, it will come to an end

. . .


My achievements seem so humble
While you're making whine from water
While my hand work the cold soil
All you touch turns into gold

And I don't want to be like you
I don't want to be like you
It seems like you outrun me every time
I want to be you
Why can't I erase you from my mind

All the heroes in the gutter
Finally get their ever after
As they lay their final glance
Upon your ever shining armor
And I don't want to be like you

And I don't want to be like you
I don't want to be like you
It seems like you outrun me every time
I want to be you
Why can't I erase you from my mind

Looking from a distance,
the difference seems so small
Has the grass been greener
on the other side at all?

And I don't want to be like you
I don't want to be like you
It seems like you outrun me every time
I want to be you
Why can't I erase you from my mind

. . .


I can feel it grow
Starting like a little storm
Itching in my toes
But it's will to take over
Ain't quite that small
I can feel it grow
I can hear it moan
I can hear it's bitter cries
In my veins it crawls
Underneath my tongue it hides
I'm in control

An error in my genesis
The reason why I started this
Where did we go wrong?

Don't you know
In the end you're no stronger of hand
You are no stronger of heart
Don't you know
In the end, we'll be tragically torn apart
If we can't control the storm

Does it get to you?
Fury in your fingertips
It doesn't get me too
Turning hands to angry fists
In rageful bliss
Oh does it get to you?
Crying all your lullabies
Do you lick your wounds
Wondering how we could try to stop this useless fight

An error in my genesis
The reason why I started this
Where did we go wrong?

Don't you know
In the end you're no stronger of hand
You are no stronger of heart
Don't you know
In the end, we'll be tragically torn apart
If we can't control the storm

. . .


Will you wait?
I'm on the other side
The other side
Will you wait?
I'm on the other side
It's too late to tell you what I'm about
But god, I'm proud

A giant in the sky
A light flooded horizon
a silent peaceful cry
And the sun that is rising
Warms me up
Warms me up
Wears me out

Will you wait?
I'm on the other side
The other side
Will you wait?
I'm on the other side
It's too late to tell you what I'm about
But God, I'm proud
But God, I'm proud...

A different kind of quiet
A different kind of warning
You've said your last goodbyes
And left your daughters mourning
Breathing in
Breathing now
Breathing out

Will you wait?
I'm on the other side
The other side
Will you wait?
I'm on the other side
It's too late to tell you what I'm about
But God, I'm proud
But God, I'm proud...

. . .


Whatever the prophecy...
Whatever prosperity...

Heaven denied us it's kingdom
Tell me where we've gone wrong
Oh, fortitude, I do like you
But I only speak when spoken to
Heaven forgive, the mess I meant
Temperance, why do I cast
Your prudence to the wind?

Whatever the prophecy
Let it be, Let it be
We'll live all there is to live
Be it pleasure, be it sorrow
Whatever prosperity
Lies in me, lies in me
I'll be all that i can be
My forever starts tomorrow

I am a nightmare haunting you
I steal away your sleep
A poison running through your veins
A wound, that always bleeds

Call it love, call it lust
Luxuria, my enemy,
you get the best of me

Whatever the prophecy
Let it be, Let it be
We'll live all there is to live
Be it pleasure, be it sorrow
Whatever prosperity
Lies in me, lies in me
I'll be all that i can be
My forever starts tomorrow

. . .


Understand, you'll never be
What they expect;
It's out of reach
You're not the kind
To reach that high
It's nothing like you had in mind

Another act
Another show you play
Realize, it will not make your problems go away
You cannot act your way out of your daily demise
Get real today
To hell, just go away

Understand, the road ahead
Is full of gaps
Gets harder yet
You're not the kind
To lead us blind
It's nothing like you had in mind

Another act
Another show you play
Realize, it will not make your problems go away
You cannot act your way out of your daily demise
Get real today
To hell, just go away

. . .


I'm waiting for another day
I'm waiting for the clock to reach the six and twelve
I'm waiting for a holiday
I'm waiting for myself
I'm waiting for another day
I'm waiting for the clock to reach the six and twelve
I'm waiting for a holiday
I'm waiting for myself

And all I seem to hear is: Stop, Stop
I'm catching up on you
Don't leave me behind
I can't see a soul out here
It's Dark, Dark
I'm catching up on you

And all I wonder is: Why?
Why do i try to start running
What am I running for?

Do you remember why we started running?
Do you remember why we're running at all?
If I dared I'd choose to swim
But it's safer on the shore
Do you remember why we started running?
Do you remember why we're running at all?
I would die to get away
But I fear to even more

I'm waiting for another day
The last one was so desperately disappointing
I can't seem to focus on what I've done
Or where I 've been
I can't see
Nobody here

And all I seem to hear is: Stop, Stop
I'm catching up on you
Don't leave me behind
I can't see a soul out here
It's Dark, Dark
I'm catching up on you

And all I wonder is: Why?
Why do i try to start running
What am I running for?

Do you remember why we started running?
Do you remember why we're running at all?
If i dared I'd choose to swim
But it's safer on the shore
Do you remember why we started running?
Do you remember why we're running at all?
I would die to get away
But I fear to even more

I would rather stay here the rest of my life
I would rather stay here the rest of my life
I would rather stay here the rest of my life
Then close my eyes

I would rather stay here the rest of my life
I would rather stay here the rest of my life
I would rather stay here the rest of my life
Then close my eyes and start swimming

I would rather stay he re the rest of my life
I would rather stay here the rest of my life
I would rather stay here the rest of my life
Then close my eyes and start swimming

Close my eyes and start swimming
Close my eyes and start swimming

. . .


It seems we have lost
Lay down your arrows
It won't cause flaming hearts
It seems we have lost
We keep on running in different directions

Never again
The way you're turning all my wrongs to right
Never again
This one you can't deny
Never again
I wanted to reveal a softer side
Never again
Forgive me if I tried to do what's right

I was only holding on
To everything we had so far
Thought I was ready but
I can't and I'm not
I was only holding on
To everything we had so far
Thought I was ready but
Now it seems, yes now it seems

It seems we have lost
Lay down your arrows
It won't cause flaming hearts
It seems we have lost
Forget about your pride
Forger everything
Everything you're taught

The way you're turning all my wrongs to right
Never again
This one you can't deny
Never again
I wanted to reveal a softer side
Never again
Forgive me if I tried to do what's right
I was only holding on
To everything we had so far
Thought I was ready but
Now it seems, yes now it seems...

. . .


Remember when you walked out into the rain
The railroad and the sky were calling your name
Can you hear them whisper:
"Come and get lost with us"
You've been chasing shadows in your hometown
You searched for answers that refused ever to be found
So you compromised and found a new horizon
Ever since you left you're always on my mind

So here's to you if you care to listen
Here's to you, let me cross the distance

Even if you're not here
I'll reach you, I'll reach you
Even though you're away, I'm near
We'll forgive and forget
I'll reach you

Seven years and seven days you've been gone
Seven years of changing faith and opinion
Would you recognize me
If you walked beside me?
I would keep on waiting
It's been to long

Here's to you if you care to listen
Here's to you, let me cross the distance

Even if you're not here
I'll reach you, I'll reach you
Even though you're away, I'm near
We'll forgive and forget
I'll reach you

Even if you're not here
I'll reach you, I'll reach you
Even though you're away, I'm near
We'll forgive and forget
I'll reach you

I'll reach you...

. . .


Nothing left to make you feel high
Nothing left to turn you on
Laughing in your childish disguise
You rule the night

Follow me back home
'Cause the night is young
And I'm tired of being alone
Follow me back home
Give me just one more
To send shivers
To the bone

Nothing left, The magic is gone
Pallor face in morning light
Someone, close the curtains
Oh, how it hurts your eyes

Follow me back home
'Cause the night is young
And I'm tired of being alone
Follow me back home
Give me just one more
To bring shivers
To the bone

Nothing left
It's time to leave
Can you make it on your own?
Nothing left
It's time to breathe
Can you follow me back home?

Nothing left to make you feel high
Nothing left to turn you on
Dwelling in your dreams every day
Disturbs your night

Nothing left
It's time to leave
Can you make it on your own?
Nothing left
It's time to breath e
Can you follow me back home?

. . .


[Bonus track]

I want to lay my head down
Come close, come closer
What's that uncomfortable sound
Of your key in the door - I hear you walking out
Walking out again
Why didn't you stay a while
To say goodbye, my friend

I want to lay my head down
Come closer, come closer
I thought you'd turn me
But you were turning around
I think I'm losing you
Losing you again
Why didn't you stay a while
To say goodbye, my friend
My friend

Winter shadow cools you
White before your eyes
Summer shadow soothes
Nothing on your mind
Winter shadow cools you
White before your eyes
Summer shadow suits you
Tonight

I want to lay my head down
Come closer, come closer
Trying not to remember
Our most precious of times
Remember winters cold
And summers by my side
Please tell me I do leave
A void of any kind

(Say goobye now)
Winter shadow cools you
White before your eyes
Summer shadow soothes
Nothing o n your mind
Winter shadow cools you
White before your eyes
Summer shadow suits you
