Track Name: Burning Flags
Walking all along the sidewalk
as a riot takes the streets
of a far away city

but these streets are empty as is my heart
don't wanna live in bitterness
give me a cure for shame

Planes are easy to take
you can jump on one and make a clean start
in a far away city

would I be a traitor for not looking back?
don't wanna live in bitterness
give me a cure for shame

Eyes in every corner and ears behind the walls
hands that hold me to the ground
you won't hear me telling stories
but you won't see me run and hide

A dreamer for survival, a heathen by default
should I accept my fate?
you won't hear me singing anthems
but you won't see me burning flags

Give me a cure for shame
Track Name: Sirens
Sirens, sirens have stopped wailing
somehow we forgot about how they're supposed to sound
quiet now the struggle has passed
and scars are quickly falling out, they're falling out now

So hang on, hang on, my love
remember to hang on, hang on

Summer, never comes unnoticed
silent riot in disguise, always full of charm
sometimes freedom's not so easy
it's too big, it always wrecks a heart or two on it's way

So hang on, hang on, my love
remember to hang on, hang on

Summer has arrived
feathers falling out
skin is left uncovered
and love strikes us by surprise
feathers falling out
skin is left uncovered

So hang on, hang on, my love
Track Name: Scorpion's revenge
You told me what to do
you should have left me on my own
how could you be so wrong?

And you tried to mess me up
you should have known me better
should have known I'm hard to break

Did you believe you'd seen the worst side of me?
did you believe you'd seen the worst side of me?

Then you told me not to go
you coulnd't take it all at once
when you started to get cold

Now you better try to hide
you've lost before the battle starts
the scorpion wants revenge

How could you make it stop?
how could you make it stop?
how could you make it stop now it´s started?

Did you believe you'd seen the worst side of me?
did you believe you'd seen the worst side of me?

You told me what to do
You told me what to do
You told me what to do
Track Name: Just sighs
Sighs and nothing more
just sighs is all you ever have to give

Some say it was the summer
and how it made you live again
but some things may grow
and then just wither and fade

And seasons, they change
and some people are never the same again
when they come back
you find a love that was buried alive

When she smiled it felt like the summer
but when it was winter in her eyes
you never wondered, you never knew
how little she felt and how weak you were

You got too cold and closed the door
and now you see you missed the chance to begin
to let her in, let her in
to begin to let her in, let her in

You're on your way to find your own home
on your way to find your own home
the way to find out
you're on your way to find your own home
on your way to find your own home
the way to find out
Track Name: The blue in your eyes
And one more time
you ask me to not look in your eyes
again, you're turning around
thinking this time won´t be the last

But goodbye says the blue in your eyes

I wait holding my breath
I know you´re different, you will be back
you did it a thousand times
I´m not prepared for losing my heart

But goodbye says the blue in your eyes

Now there´s nothing I can say
you´re standing right here but so out of my reach
decisions have been made
I know this time there's no turning back

Never look back but remember my name
take all my sorrows and hide them in shame
never look back but remember my name
take all my sorrows for you are to blame
Track Name: Shore
The remains are lying on the floor
all that is left, all that is gone
I'm the woman sitting on the shore
watching them go, watching them drown

With the patience slipping from my hands
I wait for a sound, wait for a sign
in the final hours of the day
hoping to find what I wanted to lose

Far away always seems to be brighter
long ago was always better

But it´s always time
and it´s always time
and it´s always time
it´s always time

Run far away before they see you, see you falling down
stumble upon the fairy tale you made up for yourself

'Cause far away always seems to be brighter
long ago was always better
far away always seems to be brighter
long ago was always better

But it´s always time
and it´s always time
but it´s always time
it´s always time
Track Name: Home tonight
I really don't think you're coming home tonight
you told me that you would but your eyes said otherwise
I really don't think I can walk out without a fight
you want to let it cool and act as if we're all right

I really don't think that you wanna share the bed with me
or maybe I'm afraid, that it's the other way around
you'd say that I'd just go on, all night long
I try to make it better but somehow I make it worse

If only I could just shut up and grab your hand
I'd tell you that I'm scared of getting lost in all my words
the only thing I need to know right now is we're ok
but anyway, I don't think I'm making any sense

So I really hope you're not coming home tonight
Track Name: When the rain comes
One of us's still laughing
and one of us's still smiling
but when the rain comes
will you still be smiling?

The birds may be singing
and the sun, it may be shining
but when the rain comes
will it still be shining?

'Cause when the rain, it washes away
all of the dirt
you will have nothing

And when the day gets cloudy
and the first drops hit my face
and if a lightning strikes the sky
there will be a smile upon my face

'Cause when the rain, it washes away
all of the dirt
you will have nothing

You will find yourself alone
when all these tears run down your cheeks
and you will miss our sundays in bed
when you regret running away
Track Name: Where are you?
Where are you tonight?
I made the bed and I opened the door
it's not the first time
I reach for you and I can´t
get hold of your hand
there´s no sign of you in the room

Where have you gone, alone?
the hours arrive one by one
and I don't know how long
I've been trying to warm up the bed

When are you coming home?
when are you coming back home to me?

Why can't I wish you back?
I call you in silence
but words are just not strong enough
how can I ever reach you and keep you enough?
when you are so far away

When are you coming home?
when are you coming back home to me?
