Today 03:33
Today, I want to contribute To all the dreams that couldn‘t be fulfilled And I don‘t need a parachute To block my fall, cause I already got killed by you There‘s nothing I can do We‘re only playing to win a chance But it‘s true For all the sweeping brooms Just trying to get through The dust of the past But some might say, that every day Will make this life worth livable But all I know, is how to show That I wasn‘t made, for today Today I got knocked off my feet And I don‘t know if I can still resist Cause I just feel so incomplete At least I hope that I already got missed by you There‘s nothing I can do We‘re only playing to win a chance But it‘s true For all the sweeping brooms Just trying to get through The dust of the past But some might say, that every day Will make this life worth livable But all I know, is how to show That I wasn‘t made, for today

To find you tied to a dark star Mad hordes of black dogs around Leaves me crying till my eyes are sore Cause I know you‘re just waiting to be found You may ask yourself “how does he know If all that he knows is not more than my words?“ But ever since you told me about the scent of the rain I could feel the pain, where it hurts And I wonder... where does this come from? Why are you shining so bright That I can even see you from a distance Like a well-known soothing light? And it helps me to know you are out there When it‘s far too hazy to see Yet there‘s one thing I still have to ask you Would you feel the same about me? [Verse 2] And I know that your way won‘t be easy So I‘m trying to give you a song That might help you when you‘re frowning That is there with you all along You may ask yourself “how does he know If all that he knows is not more than my words?“ But ever since you told me about the scent of the rain I could feel the pain, where it hurts And I wonder... where does this come from? Why are you shining so bright That I can even see you from a distance Like a well-known soothing light? And it helps me to know you are out there When it‘s far too hazy to see Yet there‘s one thing I still have to ask you Would you feel the same about me?

I climbed the ladder to the roof I hoped that I would find the proof That the point of view can change Why does it feel so strange? I held my hands up to the ceiling To get a hold of the certain feeling That you get when you are down Now the ceiling‘s painted brown If you get into the shape of things You‘ll find the answers and the missing links Or at least so I was told A whole new world might unfold And so I traveled near and far To find the way things really are And now I‘m stuck in the road I couldn‘t find the hidden code I might return home without harm Maybe my lunch will still be warm Maybe my friends will be at home So that I won‘t feel so alone If you get into the shape of things You‘ll find the answers and the missing links Or at least so I was told A whole new world might unfold

She holds you up into the flame To make you feel the same again But you know she can‘t force the fate So get back on the tracks before it‘s too late Straight ahead the sun is burning Can‘t you see the world is turning Upside down, and you cannot escape Don‘t try picking up the pieces Don‘t believe whatever she says Be whatever you want to be Get up you‘re free She lifts you up to let you down Then she is pleased to watch you frown You should‘ve learned that after all She‘s putting up her trap with a wrecking ball Straight ahead the sun is burning Can‘t you see the world is turning Upside down, and you cannot escape Don‘t try picking up the pieces Don‘t believe whatever she says Be whatever you want to be Get up you‘re free

Safe 03:26
No I can‘t let go Of this fire that set my heart aglow And now I‘m high and dry A leafless island without any hope And you are probably safe Cause you chose to keep a thousand miles away From every strain that could cause you dangers When we meet again we‘re barely more than strangers Will you give me what I hoped for Will you give me what I need so bad And relive my time just once more Let me find out how this tale turned sad So you let me know That the curtain‘s drawn you left the show But how could I wallow in a memory That died long ago? And you are probably safe Cause you chose to keep a thousand miles away From every strain that could cause you dangers When we meet again we‘re barely more than strangers Will you give me what I hoped for Will you give me what I need so bad And relive my time just once more Let me find out how this tale turned sad

Halcyon Days 02:53
Oh my love, I can‘t keep it inside I‘m blazing and burning and sparks light the night They‘re bursting in colours and cast out the grey My head‘s in the clouds, you lead me astray Delusion portrays a newborn star Uncovers my eyes and takes me afar It shatters my fears and proves me right Halcyon days that linger inside Hold on my love, grant rest to my heart Let me catch a glimpse of this marvel of art And put down in words the way that I feel How sweet is a dream when nothing is real? You satisfy my modest demand You build up a world with a sweep of your hand And dispel the nightmares, yeah they take the flight Halcyon days that linger inside

Light Up 02:42
Light up, don‘t say die This life‘s no curse, it dares you to defy For once, it‘s passing by You can‘t reverse, so walk on keep an open eye I believe That the highest heights were meant for us to see Yeah, I know we‘ll make it there, make it anywhere I believe In you and me, we lead this company With the world at our feet Light up, cease to moan Cause time will tell the end‘s not set in stone For now that you have grown Out of your shell, your journey leads to the unknown I believe That the highest heights were meant for us to see Yeah, I know we‘ll make it there, make it anywhere I believe In you and me, we lead this company With the world at our feet

For the life of an ordinary boy It can mean the world if you make him feel special Sometimes we all feel like a broken toy Left alone under a huge pile of waste And isn‘t it a bitter taste To have no pride no grace? You never know what‘s inside If you give up the fight Cause you know it‘s a shame If you take all the blame Now step back into the light For the sake of your pride You know it‘s time to write The story of your life In the life of an ordinary boy It can save his world if you say it‘s alright Tears are shed and things get destroyed But at the end of this tunnel shines a light And isn‘t it a bitter taste To have no pride no grace? You never know what‘s inside If you give up the fight Cause you know it‘s a shame If you take all the blame Now step back into the light For the sake of your pride You know it‘s time to write The story of your life

Fall Down 04:23
I‘ve tried to reach the peak And plant my flag into the snow After all these miles I‘m feeling weak Cover up and lay low High above life and love I wish I‘d fall down, fall down I‘ve tried to burst the wall And sign it with my name I never climbed I was afraid to stall Humble steps win no fame, acclaim Far apart, life and love I wish I‘d fall down, fall down
