Track Name: Promise
Promise I'll be better when
You don't walk in my shadow
I can lend
Many different colours from my friend
But I won't use any of them

Promise I will see it in another way
As a snake leaves his skin, I will lose my chains
In a chamber of dolls I will be ok
Being just a losing number in a lottery

Nana nana na na nana na
Nana nana na na nana na
Nana nana na na nana na
Are they gold and am I silver?

Promise I will feel the wind on my face
(Oe-oe-oeh)
I need a touch of spark on a rainy day
(Oe-oe-oeh)
Everything around me lives while I'm
Hurting when I am breathing
Hurting when I am breathing

Nana nana na na nana na
Nana nana na na nana na
Nana nana na na nana na
Are they gold and am I silver?
Are they gold and am I silver?
(Oe-oe-oe-oe-aah)
Track Name: Can't You See
In the deepest corners of my mind
you lit a light to fix the fights
between bad and what is right
the bad spirits will leave tonight
Don't pull the rope I'm standing on,
keep me from falling, don't leave me alone
The bruises will heal but I’m afraid
the scars in my heart will stay

Can't you see there's a rope around my heart?
Don't pull it or I will fall apart
Can't you see I've warned you from the start
but you wouldn't believe my words
so I wished you could read my thoughts

In the darkest places you can find me
dreaming, in the embrace of the silence
staring at things you can't see
Still you'll be my only friend
Sometimes I think I make it up
but it seems so real that I can't stop
I hope the pieces will fall back in place,
in this endless puzzle I can't erase

And after all the things we've been through, we still have stayed the same
And on the outside we've been growing but on the inside we've always stayed the same
We’ve always stayed the same

Can't you see there's a rope around my heart?
Don't pull it or I will fall apart
Can't you see I've warned you from the start
but you wouldn't believe my words
so I wished you could read my thoughts
Track Name: Frozen on the Inside
I'm looking for
A bandage on my skin,
That covers wounds
And stops the bleeding from within
I'm looking for
A spell that brings alive,
The part of me that once died

One by one,
We were frozen on the inside,
A heart of gold but cold as ice
One by one
One by one

You’re not a murderer,
Because you want to kill
The pain in your chest,
But still
You're looking for
Protection from the rain,
But the demons in your head are taking your dreams away

One by one,
We were frozen on the inside,
A heart of gold but cold as ice
One by one
One by one
We were frozen,
Hands held high, but head a little lower,
One by one,
We grew colder
On the inside, we had to find a way to feel alive

Alive

No matter how close to the heat,
It's still cold air that we breathe
No matter how close to the fire,
The ice won't melt, won’t melt faster

One by one,
One by one
We had to find a way to feel alive

Alive
Track Name: Losing Faith
We're all born crying
And when we die, we're so alive
Misunderstood, our whole lives
The cuts covered up, the light dying with time

You just wanna be, just wanna be loved for
You just wanna be, just wanna be loved for
You just wanna be, just wanna be loved for
Who you are
Who you are

“Cause I am, losing. I am, losing. I am. I am.
Losing faith”
“Cause I am, losing. I am, losing. I am. I am.
Losing faith”

Don't replay the scenes in your head
Darling please, don't be so sad
You're not there, not in that hospital bed
Where everyone left, with not a trace of regret

You just wanna be, just wanna be loved for
You just wanna be, just wanna be loved for
You just wanna be, just wanna be loved for
Who you are
Who you are

“Cause I am, losing. I am, losing. I am. I am.
Losing faith”
“Cause I am, losing. I am, losing. I am. I am.
Losing faith”

Keep the ghosts outside my view,
Please make them stop
Hold me close,
All I want to feel is love. Love

“Cause I am, losing. I am, losing. I am. I am.
Losing faith”
“Cause I am, losing. I am, losing. I am. I am.
Losing faith”
Track Name: Candle
Oh my god
I can’t bear this weight anymore
This invisible bag, full of struggles and fears
Oh my god
It’s getting heavier every day
With eyes addicted to crying every worry
Away, into the night
You said ‘Well I’ll

Push you towards the light,
I know the darkness feels right
Push you towards the light,
Tonight dying sparks reignite
Don’t let the candle burn out.”

Oh my god
I am fooling everyone
My eyes shine bright but only for so long
Oh my god
I can’t be dead or am I?
Something ‘s screaming in my head all the time

I won’t let you

Push me towards the light,
I know the darkness feels right
Push me towards the light,
Tonight dying sparks reignite
Don’t let the candle burn out

Take this heart of mine,
And make it beat in time
Let me explode, the darkness will be my light
Don’t let the candle burn out

Can you fix my heart now?
Can you make it beat just in time?
Can you fix my head now?
Unravel the knots I made

Can you fix my heart now?
Can you make it beat just in time?
Can you fix my head now?
Unravel the knots I made through life
Track Name: You Gave My Heart
You gave my heart a purpose for its beating
You gave my life a real meaning

You gave my lungs the strength to breathe,
And let the air out

I've said it once, I've said it twice,
I'll say it until my soul collides,
With the beat of the drums
I'll sing it once, I'll sing it loud,
I'll sing it until the day I die,
And my lungs give in

You gave my heart a purpose for its beating
You gave my life a real meaning
You gave my lungs the strength to breathe,
And let the air out

I've come from far, but still so close
I've gone from a shadow to a ghost,
But now I'm here again
I've seen the worst, I've seen the best,
In every person I have met

But this is for you, you're the best friend I could have got
But this is for you, you're the best friend I could have got

You helped me through the worst,
Through the best, through the lies and I guess,
That's all I could wish from a person I have met

You gave my heart a purpose for its beating
You gave my life a real meaning
You gave my lungs the strength to breathe,
and let the air out
Track Name: Butterfly
I knew a girl,
She lived in a cocoon
Hoping she’d turn into a butterfly soon
I knew a girl,
She sang until her throat hurt
It was her escape from living in a prison
She said, she said: “I wonder, should I end this life?
Or stay (or stay)? Sometimes I wish I could
Dream the days away.”

No, don't cry
Everyone in the world smiles all the time,
Doesn't mean they aren't dying inside
No, don't cry
Everyone in the world hides all the time,
It's easier to cope with everyday life
Although you're hurt, although you're lost,
Broken and torn apart,
Just smile. just smile

I knew a girl,
She bottled everything up
Until the glass burst and she cut herself on the
Sharp sides
I knew a girl,
She said she forgot how to smile
Still every word of hate, she'd return with
Love, love. She wonders if she caused all the
Trouble and hate (and hate)
Sometimes she wishes she could just

No, don't cry
Everyone in the world smiles all the time,
Doesn't mean they aren't dying inside
No, don't cry
Everyone in the world hides all the time,
It's easier to cope with everyday life
Although you're hurt, although you're lost,
Broken and torn apart,
Just smile. just smile

I knew a girl,
She saw everything in black and white
Consequence of the people,
That made her hate herself
I knew a girl, she asked for some color in her life
But for every tear wiped away,
Another streamed down her face

I knew a girl,
She found strength
Through time, through time
She said it's broken people that make each other whole again
No, don't cry
Everyone in the world smiles all the time,
Doesn't mean they aren't dying inside
No, don't cry
Everyone in the world hides all the time,
It's easier to cope with everyday life
Although you're hurt, although you're lost,
Broken and torn apart,
Just smile. just smile

I know a girl,
She’s recovering now.
Sometimes it gets cloudy,
But she knows there'll be sun in the end
Track Name: Snowflake
I'm the slowly weeping sky
A river of tears
Salt forming in an eye
Rolling down a cheek

An accident caused
A shadow on the hills
The struggle of life
The search for better times

Is this life for you ? I don't know
I'm just scaled off paint
I'm just a snowflake that melts
In a Winter Wonderland
Is this life for me? I don't know
I'm just space filling the crowd
I'm just the leaves on a tree
Falling endlessly

You're the hope in hopeless
Illusions left from a dream
The heartbreaking silence
The treasure that's never seen

You're the razor on my skin
Carving words of hate
It tortures my delicate limbs
It makes the illness win

Is this life for you? I don't know
I'm just scaled off paint
I'm just a snowflake that melts
In a Winter Wonderland
Is this life for me? I don't know
I'm just space filling the crowd
I'm just the leaves on a tree
Falling endlessly

Oe-oe-oe-oe-oeh
Oe-oe-oe-oe-oeh
Oe-oe-oe-oe-oeh
Oe-oe-oe-oe-oeh

Oe-oe-oe-oe-oeh
Oe-oe-oe-oe-oeh
Oe-oe-oe-oe-oeh
Oe-oe-oe-oe-oeh
Track Name: Rose
Soon I'll fall down
like a tear in the rain
I will blend in
unnoticed

And soon I hope I'll hold a rose
But soon I know I'll fight its thorns
And I said ‘soon’
Soon

Soon it might snow
I'll melt like before
But you're not ice,
Just drizzle before the snow

And soon I hope I'll hold a rose
But soon I know I'll fight its thorns
And I said ‘soon’
Soon

My lungs are clouds, the oxygen just escapes
I keep panicking 'cause I never know when they will cause rain
All I know is that since the storm, I have never felt the same
It was the day I realised my life is a huge twirling hurricane
