Track Name: The Rain (feat. BXBBY of Coyotes)
"let us end this chapter with a big bang"
i was nervous like a kid before the first kiss
when I drove my dads mustang
with the cleaned up shoes and the brand new suit
that suddenly fits a man
and your long black dress and your gold necklace
and that smile i could watch ’til the end
i felt your heart racing, your hand shaking in mine
wanted to capture the moment, forever stopping the time
and the world didn't seem so unfair when the sound of your voice became my favorite song
we were standing at the edge of what's to come
let's stay young forever
and act like we've nothing to lose
let's grow old together
and tell our kids stories from our youth
and we danced like we never ever danced before
closed eyes, lips collided, the fire burned in my heart

and the sun comes up, we’re still awake
let’s forget about how everything will change
time flies us by
and we’re dancing in the rain

and we're losing us to find ourselves
my dearest friend, when will I see you again
back home, back in the days, back when we were more than this photograph?
back when we said that we'll never forget the lines of our favorite tracks
tasting the first drop of liquor on your tongue
feeling the first misery after the relationship went wrong
first inhale, first cough, always broke at the start of the month
long nights, lost loves - it’s what made us who we are
we learned to take the fall, learned how to get up again
taught to stand tall, even if you'd feel the fear in our hands
we wrote our dreams in the sky, started building a plane
and heard applause when we closed our eyes in the rain

and the sun comes up, we’re still awake
let’s forget about how everything will change
time flies us by
and we’re dancing in the rain

sounds of freedom, the anthems of our youth
you'll never win a fight if you don't risk to lose
and every single scar I carry is a work of art
i'm chasing memories down the pavement to the place I left my heart

and the sun comes up, we’re still awake
let’s forget about how everything will change
time flies us by
and we’re dancing in the rain
Track Name: Thunder
close your eyes and breath
feel the water beneath your feet
if the sound of the waves means freedom
then let the ocean speak
and we could be boundless
carried by the wind, we could be groundless
kings and queens with green dreams and crownless
and we'll live the longest and laugh the loudest
just say you wanna leave, i’ll be the first who got the keys
the fresh air of the sea is everything you ever need
with the top down, radio turned loud
driving closer to the sun, all we have is right now
no compass, no plans - the road is written in our hands
and wherever we go, the footprint stays in the sand
let remorse fade with the swell
and if we ever come back, we got a story to tell

run deep, run wild, don’t stop
you don't need a compass when you follow your heart
and our feelings are thunder
we're free and our feelings are thunder

we draw our hearts in the sand
so firm that it can not be perished
and with a love so deep
I swear, the ocean would be jealous
crystal clear skies, cherish the moonlight
counting stars singing campfire lullabies
and every kiss feels honest like a goodbye
how she sends shivers down my spine, it's a good life
Let’s hang onto the clouds, watch the world pass by
catch the beauty of the moment, let our colors come to life
don't ask what could have been, we can do everything
like bonnie and clyde, from heart to limb
dance under the summer rain like nobody is watching
love like you've never been hurt, live like tomorrow isn't coming
let remorse fade with the swell
and if we ever come back, we got a story to tell

run deep, run wild, don’t stop
you don't need a compass when you follow your heart
and our feelings are thunder
we're free and our feelings are thunder

run deep, run wild
the gras is always greener on the other side
run free, live life
and never come back ’til the end of time

run deep, run wild, don’t stop
you don't need a compass when you follow your heart
and our feelings are thunder
we're free and our feelings are thunder
Track Name: Heavy Hearts (feat. Kimberly)
seems like we fell in love to fall apart
just to pick up all the pieces and go right back to the start
but how lang can we carry heavy hearts
before we hit the ground so we can never get back up?
we took a shot in the dark but the dark didn't leave
planted a seed in the dirt, now we're burning down the whole tree
protested with open arms, kicked us with tired feet
we're preaching all or nothing, but living somewhere in between
see the love that I have
so much love, it made a good man turn bad
i was too loud to understand a word i said
when I look into the mirror, i see someone else, it’s clear I lost myself
i don't know who you are when you sleep in his bed
and i don't know who i am when you're still inside my head
i don't know who we are to believe we're perfect
when everybody sees that we don't deserve that
all i know is love but is love really enough? who knows?!
all i wanted was trust but I never felt this lost, you know?
do you know?!

what’s up comes down, am i flying or falling?
and time runs out, should i wait for nothing?
this love is killing me, i need to find some sleep
this love is killing me, and here we go again

every night, cigarettes and wine
cheated once, cheated twice, how can we pretend we're fine?
tell me that you need me, tell yourself a lie
because what's the right one when it's not the right time?
we're scared to be alone, scared of the unknown
so we rather take the blame than to lose what feels like home
the ship sinks but the band is playing our song
line after line and i wish that they could stop
see the love that you have
so much love, it made a good girl turn bad
and now it's hard to find comfort in your bed
when the pillow still has the print of his head, i can't sleep where he slept
why are we still here when we should learn from mistakes?
and if home is where the heart is, is our love an empty place?
and we're stuck in this cycle, death or revival?
anyways I turn psycho so for what is this case?
all i know is love but is love really enough? who knows?!
all i wanted was trust but I never felt this lost, you know?
do you know?!

what’s up comes down, am i flying or falling?
and time runs out, should i wait for nothing?
this love is killing me, i need to find some sleep
this love is killing me, and here we go again

over and over again
we’re running in circles
hate to say that i told you so but I told you so just to let you know
over and over again
we’re running in circles
hate to say that i told you so but I told you so and it's better if we let go
Track Name: Ghost Orchid (feat. Thomas of Light Your Anchor)
what is love but a four letter restriction?
a sickness, a harmful addiction
i witnessed all of the affliction
standing in the quicksand, doubting my conviction
pictures been taken, pictures been framed
and then all of the pictures been broken and all once again
pages been written, pages been burned
and then all of the pages been rewritten, when will we ever learn?
wanted to bring you the moon
but cut my fingers on the stars
and if love means joy
maybe it's not meant for us
if your love is my drug, i better go to rehab
’cause nothing in my life left more scars than what we had
i'll never let you go‘, now i got broken hands
i went through hell and back and all that's left are broken legs
broken ribs and a damaged head, i’m nothing more than a broken man
hard for me to believe but I will learn to love again, i guess…
i lost the feel for the moment as you were turning the tides
starting waves of loneliness carry away the sands of time
feels like I'm hellbound, feels like I'm held down
the brightest sun just burned out, now i’m having a meltdown
they say 'the higher you get, the harder you fall'
I already hit the ground and I feel nothing at all
we turn cold when the heart can't take no more
when trust is gone, everyone's a wolf at your door
we gave and we gave, we gave us so much
we gave us everything and then we broke all our trust
and then we gave and we gave, we gave us too much
still we gave and we gave till we gave up on us
and i see how our colors turn to silhouettes
familiar eyes but a foreign glance
and the mirror that once pictured us is nothing more than shattered glass
shattered chest, cut my breath
put my head in a plastic bag
and the shattered pieces won't believe us when we say the past is dead
you are the tears I left my youth for
i never thought it would end like this
how can i forget the bitter taste of your kiss
when the poison hit my lips and her touch comes close?
love, please let me go…
Track Name: Phoenix
i came too far to give up on me
and wounds heal as the time leaves
i rearrange the puzzle to get a new piece
i won't let one wrong undo all the right things
new beginnings, new me
cast off, I send this vessel free
i'm breaking out, i'm no longer in between
open up my eyes and i rise like a phoenix

the fear of falling shouldn't take the dream of flying
the amount of defeats shouldn't lower the will of trying
when you're alone with your demons and nobody hears you screaming
then there's no option but fighting
i'm not afraid to stand for what i believe
even if that means i'll be standing alone
and i’m not afraid to get up and fight for my dreams
’cause without passion we are only flesh and bones
running and running, up and away
things won't be better tomorrow if you don't start to make 'em better today
i won't wait to waste away
and if home is a feeling, i will find another place
i start where i am, i use what i have
i do what i can, hope will always be left
i leave the compass at home
the wind will take me wherever my soul belongs

straight from the fire to the open skies
from the deepest depths to the highest highs
i come alive
from the oceanground to the moon
wherever i belong, i'll be coming soon
i come alive

for too long I walked around with the fear
to end up like a soldier who died before his cheer
until i realize i can't call it a life
when i live 75 times the same year
i won't watch the clock, i will do it does
i'll proceed and promise i will never stop
i'm not moving on to look back, i'm moving on to leave behind
and I swear i won't lose track, not one more fucking time
i keep going when i'm going through hell
’cause I wanna say that i made it before I say farewell
it's hard to persist being in search of yourself
in times where everybody wants to be somebody else, but here i am
find a way or i'll make one, build a wall when the flood comes
i'm not afraid, there's no turning back and i learned from my wrongs
rise up from the ashes, learn to forgive
spread my wings and prosper, fly away and learn to live

straight from the fire to the open skies
from the deepest depths to the highest highs
i come alive
from the oceanground to the moon
wherever i belong, i'll be coming soon
i come alive
