Track Name: Don't count on me
Don’t count on me

I was never good at goodbyes.
But now get the fuck/hell out
Take another good look in is my eyes and you see what I mean

I was always good those lies
But now runs my luck out
Taking on a different disguise, it's not at all, its not what it seems

Don’t believe a thing I say to you
Everything I said, I said before

And if you are looking for trouble you found it
Cause living with me isn't easy

Taking
Leaving
Faking
Loving
Your head in the sand
Betrayed by a friend

I was feeling so low I was feeling so low
I was feeling so low, I was taking a blow
And then you came around
Everything bright
I was doing ok
I was feeling all right
I was testing myself
I was testing my songs
I was fine doing living and then you came along
I was kissing your lips, you were kissing me back
I said I love you and you said : hey I don’t mind,

We got ourselves in this mess, it seems there’s nothing left to loose
And you say you don’t like this house, but it’s the only place/house I’ve got my love
You say you like me, even though that you don’t
You feel so tense, even when you’re relaxed
Track Name: The pounding pain
The Pounding Pain

It's been a long time since I have seen you smile, you knew my way
It s been such a long time since I have seen you try, not a single day
And all of these little things keep on pushing us around and round and round
And I would really want to lose myself in you
Would really like to lose myself in you?

It's been a long time since you called me love, in that certain way
It's been such a long time since we drove away, without a plan
Simply said, you don’t want to live your life with me
And I would really want to lose myself in you

And then you fail to see
How she kisses another man
You will feel the pounding pain
And every day will feel the same

You and I
Simply said
We just crossed a line/do not withstand time
So why don’t you go where you go

You and I
I'm afraid
I cannot live with
The pounding pain, very day
Track Name: I lost my love
I lost my love

I lost my love
And when I look back
Is there something that I should say or do?
Probably not, probably not

She knew things that nobody knew
But underneath (lies), a restless needs to survive
And she knows how to comfort a man
And kiss him as if she cares
But she does her own thing
No she doesn't care at all

Sweet but blind
Hey how are you
Did she lose it all?

I lost my love
And when I look back
Is there something that I should say or do?
Probably not, probably not
Track Name: Designed to deceive
Designed to deceive

Another useless fight
That I can only lose
Feels like I'm spinning around
Like shaking hands with yourself

And now she wants to talk
I don’t know what to say
And now she wants to walk
I don’t know where to go.
And now she wants to kiss
I don’t know where to look
And now she wants to eat
I don’t know what to cook

And then she comes along and looks at you as if you're the best
And I don’t want to lose my mind when there is nothing to say

I love you violently
It was designed to deceive!
And I can’t sleep it away
Another restless night

And then she comes along and looks at you as if you're the worst
And I don’t want to lose my mind because I think I was clear

And I'm a sailor
And all those people keep on pushing me - propelling around
Yes I'm a sailor
And where my heart beats - I am gonna be where I'm at
Now I'm a is sailor
And all I want to do is sailing just sailing around
Now I sailor
I tend to act such way, if you keep me here hanging around
Now I'm a sailor

You better touch up
No-one else will fill your cup
At times you drink alone
And sometimes too much
Track Name: Golden days
Golden days

They don't know you like I do
Like I should
They don't seem to understand
Why we do what we do

I don’t want to be the one who wakes you up/keeps your mind
I don't want to be the one who freaks you out
I don’t want to be the one who takes your love
I just want to be the one who gives you love

Did you really mean it all
When you said that you loved her?
And do you really mean it now
Now that you got her?

Some days I try to jump up, not fall
Some days I try to forget it all

You don't have to be afraid
Just hold on tight to my hand
Some days will never change
Some days remain
Track Name: Walk into me again
Walk into me again

Whenever you think that you're moving around
Someone will come and put you back to the ground

Every day I send a rocket down
Furniture moving on top of the floor

Drowning, drowning anything goes
Simply burn down the host of this house

Ending most of
all of this

Whenever you think that you're moving along
You walk into me again
And when you think that you are pulling a gun
Everything you say turns into air.

If everything is terrible
My love becomes unbearable
If everything is terrible and it's terrifying you

And I,
I would never deny all of this
But you
I am not sure were
you are standing

If everything is terrible
My love becomes unbearable
If everything is terrible and you just want another way

Another way
Track Name: Strangled illusions
Strangled
A lazy day
A day to spend with you
A Walk along
A walk with you along the beach

You can never prove it
No you can never touch this/it
As I don't know what it is, so
Just feel this flow

I want to know
What you been up to so
Let me know where you are and let me know how feel (deep inside)
When you want to go where I have already been

No time exist
No start no end to all of this
Have you seen me falling,
Have you ever heard me calling your name?

And then you never go back
You still and you look back
Feeling of guilt and no one knows
Whatever you said

When you want to show what I've already seen
I don't want to go where I've already been

And I could not believe this
In an attempt to look good
And never look away
This goes straight to your heart

I want to know
What you been up to so
Let me know where you are and let me know how feel

When you want to show what I've already seen
Track Name: Don't stop
Don’t stop

Don’t stop, you got to move while you are alive
Its up to you to you to decide
What's up? You got to prove that you can survive in this life and
Adds up, makes sense, sounds like a plan doesn’t it?

Don’t stop, you got to move while you are alive
It’s up to you to you to provide
Watch out, there are people running in circles
Catch up, lagging behind is falling apart, isn't it?

Make love
Have fun
Give back
Feel good
Breath in then out
Stand tall be proud

You don't know what I don't show
Breathing it in and letting it go
You-don’t- seem- to- understand
Why are not me my friend
You do not know
You got to move
You got to choose
Chose what to lose
Take it all away, just don’t stop
Track Name: There is a ghost in this house
There is a ghost in this house

There is a ghost in this house
And there is something it likes to do
Is it blood! Or is it wine?
As I swear I smell sulfur too.

Go-go-go-go
No-no-no
Go-go-go
No-no-no

The letter
Together
Had better
Whatever

Just when you think you got it all
Someone will come and takes it away from you
Just when you think you know it all
Someone will come and take that away from you

There is a ghost in this house
And there is something it likes to show
A bleak figure, a shadow at most
But it’s there with me day and night

Go-go-go-go
No-no-no
Go-go-go
Ghost Ghost Ghost Go Ghost

When there is a ghost in your house!

There is this ghost in this house
And it came to me in the midst of the night
And what it said was kind of true
And made bloody eyes see the truth
And it said:

I like you to go-go-go-go-go
I politely replied no-no-no-no-no

Just when you think you got it all
Someone will come and take it away from you
Just when you think you know it all
Someone will come and take that away from you
Track Name: It all adds up
It all adds up

I don’t know what to do with my life.
I don’t know what to do with my life.
So many options to confuse my life.
I don’t know what to do with my life.

You've been a waste of time
You've been a waste of time
You've been a waste of time
But now I see things clear

All answers come with time
But then what else is wrong
its not all that defined
As life provides us all

I don’t know what to do with my life
I don’t know what to do with my life
So many options to confuse my life
I don’t know what to do with my life
