you left your heart inside the water you closed your eyes to count to ten just to find out that another constellation leads your way how will we learn to fight forever how will you learn to number them all now rest your mind it’s time to see the stars tricks and treats for all then rise among the ones who never shine the ones that live beneath the storm nobody can take that away from you you closed your doubts inside a drawer and lent your nightmares to the river bank but you couldn’t get rid of the sighing water that follows you where you go and it whispers soft “when will you bring heavenly fire, heavenly flame? and the lovers that you left outside waiting in the rain instead let them go and find their way home" you pray we walk these streets together soon though marked by the worst of faiths on the surface lies the glare of the moon and your voice is not silenced yet nobody can take that away from you

right now, I’m changing the air in my lungs I’m crashing the locks on my heart I know I disappeared from the world don’t make it sound so absurd and now that the only sound left is that of my rhythmless breath I notice the stains on the walls and found one more lie to unfold to atone once more, this city will wriggle and fall to be reborn come the cold white shines, skyscrapers will scratch silver skies worn out boots crackle the ice spiders climb on torn up flags satellites covered with webs I walk on the streets of this town trying to avoid looking down lose my frown

November 04:06
there was a story in the corner of her eye there was a sign in the dust that gathered up the gifts we gave each other every now and then there is a sadness in the way the light dies when the dark floods the city before the day is done and catches us on the steps still wondering why and the cold is a wake up call to me leaves me blind and with all my nerves rattling november november starts with slumber and ends in silence there goes the image of a time that passed by and left no traces but the bend and the crook, the stare and the look the stories, the books, the fox and the rook the first snow gone stale, the grass on the rails the soaking wet ground, the footsteps around we seek refuge in all the bars, shivering and get rid of our useless clothes, lingering and the cold sounds in your ears like a shout every time you collect the faith for getting out november november starts with slumber and ends in silence

Stranded 02:45
when the road to your arms is paved with terseness and the bone that you have to pick with me fills the silence all the glow on your cheeks sure looks splendid I stumble right on my feet and in the blink of an eye I'm stranded there's a layer on my heart that keeps me blinded let me pour on those days a new coat of paint let me ask myself if I was there at all or was it just my ghost or even its shadow on the wall looking stranded yes, when the truth will be delivered to me I'll be swallowed whole a stolen kiss the usual hit and miss but anyway in a day or so I'm gonna see ya I'll try to fight my own private windmill I'm gonna clear up my eyes even though you'll still find me stranded

rain, hide wait on a bench in the park for the sky to crack open and give me a sign fine, I'll walk some more with myself trying to pretend I'm with someone I need I ain't got the kind of trophies you keep on the shelf or the bright photos to remember the days you were happy beyond compare and chose to show the rest of the world fear strikes, along with the holiday bells I don't have the strength to get out of bed I fear I've lost my way what else to say homebound realize there is no one around now jimmy stewart now I know what it feels like when you seem to leave no trace behind your passing through this rotten world when the sun shined I hated every christmas to death right, I'm bitter and cynic and restless oh father please burn out all these candles I hope you notice this lame misery I hope this all ends mysteriously and dumbstruck, everyone will question their needs I fear I've lost my way what’s more to say I fear I’m wasting my days I hope that it pays I fear I'll find a way past christmas day

I loved you whole but in the middle of the sand I forgot the words we’ll overcome you know, silence is a blessing, makes it all look bold we are the ones who keep the world from wrong ’til it stands on its own and we’ll never ever let it show I don’t talk much I keep my feelings in a bottle next to my luck but when I’m alone I feel overwhelmed way beyond hope we are the ones that look like outcast ghosts in the background row and will never take a step forward we walk in shame and though we know it’s not for us we take all the blame will love remain when the ashes of the words will scatter in the rain? we are the ones that carry all the weight on their way back home and will never ever let it go

You & I 03:09
you and I we’ve been so sad slept on the wrong side of the bed and all these troubles they kept piling up ahead and all the miles we walked alone together, abroad or heading home were just a million ways escaping our own woes when we first met we were nineteen now it feels like the middle of a dream then all the details got lost somewhere in between like the Clannad ring that fell down the sink or waking up and hear you sing or all the times you took my car and moved the seat and even if we stayed up all night it wouldn’t change the way that we fight and even if we stayed up all night this game would go on it’s not all for us the pain we feel instead of letting go and heal we also worry for those who cannot deal with laughter and shouts, shadows and doubts always lurking up about and all the anxiety we just can’t do without and even if we stayed up all night it wouldn’t change the fact that we find ourselves locked in a cage from the inside this game would go on and on and on

you’re a girl interrupted, without a spark of faith in me.

like bleeding nails on metal strings and bedroom lights we never looked at before I spent all night just filling whispers and when day came these feelings lingered on some more but I think night things always run to cemetery gates at dawn I can’t go to sleep, I’m thinking that this is one for the missing this is one for your heart this is one for a new start now there’s a ghost who carries roses they once were red, now they’re just broken and torn his faith was strong and made of whiskey he did not die and yet he’ve never been born but he’s still traveling on cause better days are yet to come so catch a breath and say it loud this is one for the missing this is one for your heart this is one for a new start this is one for the missing this is one from my heart this is one for our new start

Diva died in the golden fest shredded her heart with massive bloodshed she ruined at last her velvet vest but that’s not the part I remember best it’s the moment when you took my hand and said “let’s get out of here and don’t come back” cause no one is coming around for me no one is coming around for me no one is coming around you see so let’s make people believe that we’re gone a wedding’s supposed to be shining a light on the lives of the people that that think that life is but a fight but since we left I feel more than alright and I don’t miss anything or anyone can you please tell me why? and you said: “can you please just shut the fuck up? I’m trying to sing along to the Lynyrd. just take your shoes off, untie your jacket, shut down your brain, try to return to the one you were before they filled your head with pretentious threats like “you would waste your life if you spent it waiting” that’s not stupid even if no one is coming around for you no one is coming around for me we shouldn’t be worrying to be remembered”

Winterlight 01:37
winterlight, you’re a curse come the morning, even worse cause it’s time to worry it’s time to care by and by, winterlight all the wisdom that you find leaves you blind finds you lonely, lost and out of time
