Track Name: Summer City Nights
fog clouds the sky
lights flicker in excitement
the broken sigh
of wind caught on the pavement

summer city nights
hold a power that ignites
from twilight transformed into dark
driven by a spark

tears that reflect light
are formed by a lover’s plight
throwing their thoughts against a wall
in the dark they call

deep black like coal
secretly nerved with stars
bland as a whole
unseen from behind bars

summer city nights
filled with daring coloured lights
from fireflies in search of home
left alone to roam

feel the heavens cry
rain down on the earth, so shy
cloaked in the wet embrace of life
rain is summer’s wife
Track Name: Stranger
I never thought you could own me
Oh I was wrong
Things got out of hand drastically
It's been so long

I have pulled myself together
For years on end
I'm at the end of my tether
Let's not pretend

You're an ocean
Dangerous and deep
You drown me in emotion
I’m not yours to keep
I heard you like the danger
No more need to say
I wish you were a stranger

Sometimes I wonder
Where I would be now
If I had not been under
Your spell, anyhow
I bet you're into danger
No more need to say
i wish you were a stranger

I can't get you out of me
You're haunting my sleep
There is no escape, you see
You're in way too deep

Maybe all this will be over
This time next year
Maybe my fuses will blow but
I can't see clear

You're an ocean
Dangerous and deep
You drown me in emotion
I’m not yours to keep
I heard you like the danger
No more need to say
I wish you were a stranger

Sometimes I wonder
Where I would be now
If I had not been under
Your spell, anyhow
I bet you're into danger
No more need to say
i wish you were a stranger

It is an endless fight
I fight it every night
And when morning is there
I smell it in the air

I’m trying to resist
The truth however is
I love you even more
More than ever before
Track Name: Nightlock
Trees sway
Waves hit the bay
Birds fly
Into the golden sky

Hormones dance
In sight of romance
Crowns of light
Illuminate the night

And tonight I am your flower, darling
Ever blooming and full of life
Will I still love you in the morning?
Will you still be here by my side?

We are each other’s nightlock, darling
One of us shouldn’t still be here
In disguise you can hear me calling
We are united within fear

A year has passed
Since I loved you last
We have to set things right
Won’t leave without a fight

A pearl in my hand
Thoughts written in the sand
12 hours on the clock
Finally you’re my rock

Blood is thicker than water, darling
The fog is starting to clear
I can feel our mission stalling
Remember who’s the enemy

We are each other’s nightlock, darling
One of us shouldn’t still be here
In disguise you can hear me calling
We are united without fear
Track Name: Dreams
Watch the trees
They are falling, so appalling
And the summer breeze
It is heavy of the steady calling

Watch the waves
They are breaking, I am shaking
And just count the days
I have spent them contemplating

Watch the trees
They are falling, so appalling
And the summer breeze
It is heavy of the steady calling

Watch the waves
They are breaking, I am shaking
And just count the days
I have spent them contemplating

Is it the wind in my sails
My safety net when everything fails
Is it the air that I breathe
My lifeguard that never leaves

I want your blood in my veins
A last trace of what remains
The silence is so comforting
There's no escape, I'm lost within

Watch the trees
They are falling, so appalling
And the summer breeze
It is heavy of the steady calling

Watch the waves
They are breaking, I am shaking
And just count the days
I have spent them contemplating

Oh my god
Ice is breaking, earth is shaking
I'll give it a shot
Till the end when I'm awaking
Track Name: Dead End
Here is my heart, bare on a plate
Exposed and run dry
Like magic, yet another tragic sight
A metaphor for frozen love
Swept to one side
Disappoint me once more
Tell me you know wrong from right

Afterglow develops into night
One day I'll wake up high as a kite
In the wintertime
You'll say you'll be mine
And when spring has come
You will be far gone

Distant places that i'm yearning for
I need help to step outside my door
Insincere requests
Put me to the test
No more games my friend
This is a dead end

Will this remain a fight for the rest of my life?
Recurring ideas stabbing brains like a knife?

Afterglow develops into night
One day I'll wake up high as a kite
In the wintertime
You'll say you'll be mine
And when spring has come
You will be far gone

Distant places that i'm yearning for
I need help to step outside my door
Insincere requests
Put me to the test
No more games my friend
This is a dead end

Infinite
Undisclosed desires
Starting, fuelling fires
Broken promises and broken hearts

Forever
Catching glimpses of a
Future tenfold better
It’s a tightrope walk by fits and starts

Afterglow develops into night
One day I'll wake up high as a kite
In the wintertime
You'll say you'll be mine
And when spring has come
You will be far gone

Distant places that i'm yearning for
I need help to step outside my door
Insincere requests
Put me to the test
No more games my friend
This is a dead end

Break of dawn develops into light
Today I'll wake up high as a kite
In the summertime
You said you'd be mine
I will catch the sun
While I carry on

Distant places that that I will see soon
Once seemed further away than the moon
Insincere requests
Put me to the test
No more games my friend
This is how it ends
