Determined like a one-way street To gather all the skills he´ll need To always lead the way And I couldn´t keep up with the pace he´d set Because I hadn´t spelt out all my dreams just yet It´s not something I regret But why did he try to forsake me? Was he hoping to break free? So I tried to be his steady island Until we´d figure out a plan How to get our aching heart to align again So I took my thoughts apart and laid them out Because this was something I felt strongly about But he just walked away Why did he forsake me? Why did he break free? I spent a year waving at him Hoping I would get a little more than just a smile It took some time to know it was over Thought it had started out so well And as my heart was healing, It felt so good to break free From my story It´s been a while since my heart has belonged And still I wonder who was right and who was wrong But I just have to let it go Because even though I had a looted heart I know, he never meant to take it apart It was just a bitter end to a rosy start I know, he never tried to forsake me He just needed to break free Now I can finally break free

Broken Home 03:42
Time stands still The air is filled with dust Moments pass All that´s left is broken brick And shattered glass Her trembling bones are trapped Underneath hollow words She´s buried under pieces Of faded love Broken Heart In a broken body She´s shadowed by their whitest lies They lie heavy on her bones Now she´s left alone In a broken home Raised with love While her scattered mother Built up walls of silent thoughts She twisted the truth in the name of love And it swept away the solid ground Broken Heart In a broken body She´s shadowed by their whitest lies They lie heavy on her bones Now she´s left alone In a broken home Her memories are fading She´s trying to hold on to the past And everything´s shaded In her mind it´s all her fault She´s longing for comfort Will she ever find a home Or will she stay a lonely, lonely soul Broken Heart In a broken body She´s shadowed by their whitest lies They lie heavy on her bones Now she´s left alone In a broken home

Ghosts 03:05
A body so hollow, no weight on its own Wanders in circles, he wanders alone His being is tainted for over the years He´s used every reason to hide from his dreams He´s hunted and hated and wounded and cut And all that was true to him, he hastily shut Away from the ghosts that struck roots on his back And they torture him daily for the depth he still lacks. And while he´s learned to endure their vicious assaults He started to listen to the names they call him And without even knowing, he´d forgotten the truth His name, talents and youth He´s hunted and hated and wounded and cut And all that was true to him, he hastily shut Away from the ghosts that struck roots on his back And they torture him daily for the depth he still lacks. Now he´s seized by a darkness so blue His feelings have withered to meaningless hues He´s shapeless and hollow And he fears even more than just to fail Like he used to before

The spotlights are breathing down your spine You know that you´ve been part of this play far too many times You´re the center of attention, all eyes are drawn to you But you´re longing for something new Your limbs are in position, the strings are all aligned You´re smiling so that no one spots your slowly drowning eyes, Your heart is drumming softly to the joyous interlude You´re strung out on the hands above Follow their commands You try to move your feet and hands according to plan But nothing really thrills you after all these years Dancing in the puppetry But then you close your eyes And all the dreams you´ve pushed away Creep back into your mind You juggle once again with the wicked thought of cutting all the wires But what if you fall? What if you fail? So you open up your eyes again And stare into the lights Your heart is drumming heavily Completely out of time You´re thankful for the strings That keep performing who the people came to see Your mind is restless Spinning round and round You try to dance this pain away To satisfy the crowd When suddenly you realize You´ve only really lived Within your dreams Within your dreams

I find myself broken By all the unspoken efforts of pleasing you My mind begins to wander I´m looking for thunder That could make my heart tremble again. Am I still facing love or has it withered away? We´ve been lovers, dreamers, sailors For others we´re set in stone But the spotlight has moved on The rosy haze is gone And I don´t like what I long for Am I still facing love or has it withered away? You used to be my source of peace Until you said, please, don´t share all your thoughts with me I used to be your queen Until you said you need more space to breathe And now I´ve gone too far I´m out of your reach My heart feels so heavy, It´s weighing me down I´m a lonely lover, with a molding crown You still see us waltzing in colorful spheres But is it real? Am I still facing love or has it withered away?

Unseen 04:03
Born as the first of two Loved by her parents like only a few Soon her sister took over the throne Left many of her talents unknown Cradled with love that she had to share She felt there was never enough left for her But she´s not the kind to be waiting in line With her mind she was always one step ahead Worked out a plan and her goal was set To finally find love that would hush her howling heart When she was about to turn seventeen And still didn´t feel like she was seen She then gave her heart to a man so unlike her Now she´s left, has been gone for a while Travels the world chasing mile after mile She´s looking for love so desperately Still no one has healed her steady ache Continues to love them until they break She keeps running away, reaching for more Never looks for peace from within

Silent Flame 03:29
Silent Flame Wisely Carrying Thoughts and dreams I knew you had Dancing, twirling Tender glow When I close my eyes I hear the tales you´d whisper to calm my weary heart Lasting memories Sitting here Trying to hold you near I paint my words with sorrows But you add a drop of gold Lasting presence
