Hands are shaking heart is beating faster Tight throat, guilty shadows appear into your eyes Like the wind, I wish I were there to chase the mist Emotional disease, there was nothing around Letter box full of regrets No outlooks, happy are those who forget Take a look around Sure, I will follow you I would kiss you under mistletoe Not to play the fool I won't spend all my time wasting my life I'll shout I'm loosing faith until I die Is an overwhelming shame written all over my face? Slowly sharpened words slide to the daylight To the stars, show me the right way to reach out the sky And reveal to me what happened during the past Diamonds comfort me not to live in a room Stay true and one day hearts will bloom I curse the day I was entering in the room Stay true and one day hearts will bloom

Keep growing alongside icons And still wondering why we can't let failures behind us anymore We've lost expectations again in a small amount of times Nothing could erase or repair written lines I can't recall the sound of the past. Help me to stand on, not to lay down arms Teach me the lie, teach me how to fight Lord, I never get the role you play in the turmoil Great stories I heard from you. Can god bless the sad truth? Words came to me when tears were off What should I do? Life's passing like a bullet train from birth to grave I would like to write you those words not spoken yet

No U-turn by now Old memories in wet eyes, it's easy to forget the past Don't give up now. Take a breath, I'm afraid too We will stay proud and tall And I will miss you, I will miss you And I hate you, I hate the day we will fall down Have you ever heard this sound? A kind of shabby blasting room These are ruins of my existence Have you ever heard it before? Silent screams in black books, no poetry, no prayers I'll never let you down I'll bury pain and misunderstandings Don't worry, I'm freezing And I must fight to bring you back Holding you in my arms Before my bones break, before I die

Sometimes I'd like to keep a picture of you And leave this gloomy room inside my head Over and over, I've tried not to keep myself confused I only need to knock on that door and open it And fly up to the other side Where all seem to be so different Have you ever dreamt of an escape from a nightmarish frame? Clouds and rain, medecines and shame Should I work on my upcoming escape? Tears and dope, We would rather be safe and sound Appreciate good times not to be afraid anymore Sometimes I'd like to stop those highs and lows Don't get me wrong, I'm turning in circles Over and over, I misread smoke signals Blinded by thoughts and still waiting for miracles

Lost on that road so far away from my home sweet home Please, don't switch off the light Deep scars and bad monsters will be back I know, there are no fairytales Remembering these words you said Time goes by, seasons and wars, I miss your voice and your wine Where are you now? You passed away too early in my saddest years Don't abandon me now I need you to face these fears that I can't deny Six years later, a rose tattooed on my chest Heartbreaking songs and quiet whispers So proud to wear your old favorite cap We're not invincible Heavy heart and clenshed fist Pieces of anger and screams Don't leave me alone, I can't sleep Slave of my own memories

I already miss this time We met to chase the boring days Too shy to talk about our cold seasons We finally felt the same. You were sitting there, I watched my feet On the ground, wondering about your gaze We fell in love with honesty Devouring times before it ends And I promise you tomorrow will be great Wipe your tears, I'll always be there And I know everyday, you miss these sweetest arms Don't give up now. Searching for a while, Searching for the rest. Conversations about those we lost. A guilty fall couldn't remove the past The worst is over, you must switch the light on And listen to this lullaby
7.
They should not tear us appart Let's have fun for a while Before, before you and I become deaf til we die How could I say life is a wire You could break with the blink of an eye? Silence around my mind I hope we will survive Before I scream out all my pain Before you look at me in the eyes Before you see me losing strength Who knows how to keep me alive? We should cross the whole ocean Til we find a safe place to go No matter if we are sinking Coz we tried to resist
8.
Let my heart talk for both of us Take a seat as you get used to Let's rock by echoes, let's get blew by the wind Let me talk about our story Thousands of wonders in common acts I shouldn't tell you the end Come on, get closer, then take my hand Let your gaze get into mine Listen to this song as you didn't know yourself As you didn't know me Let the tick-tock of the clock Getting tired to steal these precious times So, brave princess, don't cry You who lead my steps in the dark

Let's start from scratch without these misfortunes There are so many ways to struggle these troubles I had a million words to say goodbye but nothing happens I won't be able to talk about my love And I promised you my heart Give it the way to begin a better life And I walked along a long dark road then crows gave a place to the crown I took my bag, my guitar and my cigarettes I guess you won't stay this little princess Let me know your ennemies Let's build our castles, our fields 26 years without a sign Hung on a wire, it's bruning my eyes I only see my little baby sleeping quiet A million miles away from my home Closer to me...

Locked into your eyes Life was no longer a mess Another wandering soul Is wine turning to blood? Another throwing brick left on the path Learning to build with when light turns into black I've lost my voice Please let me in Carry me on by drawing fears A few days ago, I grabbed a lazy train Kissing kids goodbye, I hope we'll meet up there Over the hills, beyond the mountains I'm looking for a breath, I'd like to explain but...

It doens't stop, anyway Time goes by too fast Wrinkles on my face Secrets of the early years It doesn't make me cry It doesn't hurt me Watching your lips between the lines I need to go back home Crossing a lot of sad faces All over the world not to know their names Nothing makes sense And time goes by too fast
