Track Name: Vampires
I've been trying my luck,
To get through to you but
It feels like we're stuck
In notions that are old
Devotion that has lost its soul
To really matter much

So futile and insane
The worship of another name
That means nothing as such
Your fire has been tamed
Desire boxed into a cage
You've lost your magic touch

So, let's bring you back to life instead
Of losing time amongst the dead
The vampires of the night my friend
Eat you dead or alive
It's sad
But you can get away from it

I've tried so many different ways to inspire
You to misbehave
To go against the grain and end this never-ending lie
Of life that's lived in vain

So, let's bring you back to life instead
Of losing time amongst the dead
The vampires of the night my friend
Eat you dead or alive
It's sad
But you can get away from it

As transformation takes its toll
The rippling of a single stone
Thrown into water
I find the strength to let this go
To re-invent
To find the soul
The very heart
Of every matter

So, let's bring you back to life instead
Of losing time amongst the dead
The vampires of the night my friend
Eat you dead or alive
It's sad
But you can get away from it

The Vampires of the night
They eat you dead or alive.
Track Name: Under My Skin
It may take a little while
Before I am able to let you know
Every moment feels like a lifetime
I swear I was so close to telling you once before

But now I know all good things take time
Now I know all good things take their time

I let it sink, right under my skin
Didn't you know, you're such a beautiful thing?
I let it in and there's no telling what it may bring this time around
In this uncertainty I found
A little sense of peace

I may pretend
May play it cool
So you don't notice that I am just a fool for you
Every moment feels like a lifetime
When you're so damn close
To spilling your whole heart out

I let it sink, right under my skin
Didn't you know, you're such a beautiful thing?
I let it in and there's no telling what it may bring this time around
In this uncertainty I found
A little sense of peace.
Track Name: Grave Digger
Lay it to rest
Take it to the grave
Down by the river side
With every breath
A song for ever-more
No inch of skin to hide behind

The door stays open in the light
The secrets that you keep do not define you here
So would you lay your weary bones to rest
I'll hold you close with every breath
To redefine your reason

Take your time
Take all the time you need
Drowning by the river side
Let it last a little while
Drenched in your deceit
To show you what you hide behind

The door stays open in the light
The secrets that you keep do not define you here
So would you lay your weary bones to rest
I'll hold you close with every breath
To redefine your reason
To redefine your treason
To re-align the seasons
All the seasons of your heart

Still undefined but when the time is right
Let it pour out from the inside
No darkness no not even the light
Could hide it if it tried
Where rivers flow and the seasons grow
Only to guide your way home
I'll find it in the light
I'l find it in the night.
Track Name: Only You
A different kind
Your wildest imagination
A simple find
The freedom in never knowing

Believe me I've tried
Sunk to the depths of the ocean
Only to find
Myself floating in the universe of you

It's only you

The distant lands
Inside those eyes
They mesmerize
How they've mesmerized

The distance in-between it pays the price
And I'll pay any price
Any price for you

It's only you.
Track Name: Flesh & Bone
Truth be told
The deeper you go
Where the ocean meets the shore
Losing glory and gold
To things of the soul
Wisdom of the old
A wisdom told by ordinary made of flesh and bone

Flesh and Bone

The highs and the lows
Everywhere you go
Sweet lover's incarnation into a bird that soars
So high in the sky
From the earth down below
Can you feel him soar beyond his flesh and his bone

Flesh and Bone

My sweet soulful lover
Taking flight against time
No you haven't lost your mind
Simply one like no other

Crossing great rivers
Sweet lover of mine
Never defined by concepts that wither with time

My sweet soulful lover
Taking flight against time
Never defined by concepts that whither with time

You fly to finally know
You're not only this flesh and this bone
No you're heart
You're heart and soul.
Track Name: Deep End
Did you ever find what you so hoped, my love?
To ignite your every move and fill your cup?
I've lost myself in things of different kinds
Lost my heart
In places built to question all that I had set apart

Don't be frightened if you find a love that's just no ordinary kind
Where giving comes for free and if the road don't seem so easy
Gotta give a little more

Would you be prepared to make much sense of it?
With a little distance clear as day like it's always been
I'll take all my chances against all odds
Dive into the deep end
Never looking back

Don't be frightened if you find a love that's just no ordinary kind
Where giving comes for free and if the road don't seem so easy
Gotta give a little more.
