Track Name: My Diagnosis
First time you opened your eyes,
you saw your mother, but you didn't know what was outside.
And even if you grew up with some knowledge of life,
you'd have known soon enough how to get to the moon.
In second grade you felt love for the first time,
a shy kiss made your afternoon a lifetime.
The love you shared was a locked room on fire,
with an outside rain like an incomplete desire.

And when you curled up in bed to sleep,
You felt lonely along with your plea,
so when the war came you fought till the end

But you will stand on your feet, you will die in your sleep
and at last ask yourself, was it worth it?
You will know love and hate, like a mannequin face
you will stare at your life's diagnosis.

Near a lake, placed in your dreams, you noticed,
that summer evenings could set memories into storage.
And each time you picked up one of them from its box,
the idea rushed in your mind run to the first payphone.

and you crawled to the shelter to save your heart,
still you can't beat the bullet, it will rip you apart,
you'll still feel the glory in your actions when you will

stand on your feet, you will die in your sleep
and at last ask yourself, was it worth it?
You will know love and hate, like a mannequin face
you will stare at your life's diagnosis.

You will stand on your feet, you will die in your sleep
and at last, was it really worth it?
You will know love and hate, like a mannequin face
you will stare at your life's diagnosis.
Track Name: Gone Like The Wind
It's safe to say I'm better when the sky is just clouds,
It's safe to pray for something all alone at night,
but you'll be gone like the wind.

It's safe to say "for so long I relied on you",
easy to change for someone, do you know the truth?
I'll be gone like the wind.

if planets and stars could see me,
I'd paint narrow stairs to climb up, darling

Fall, for breathing, to slide into the darkest deep of
Love, no whispers, no chemicals just summer in your mind.

Sometimes I'd like to see the world, but with your eyes,
Sometimes I'd like to draw it, but without a line
and then be gone, like the wind.

To hear my voice and know that what is wrong is right
to set you on the land that we can call home now
then we'll be gone like the wind.
Track Name: The Glass Heart
I don't know who's driving me home,
I don't know if he feels that I'm torn,
but I don't care anymore, anymore

I don't wish for something new,
and I don't wish for anything but you,
I'm soaked inside your shame, a glass heart

Tight thoughts grow and your life is falling stones,
Cursed seconds with breathable love turned smoke
Wasting my life just to find a glass heart.

We both know sometimes life isn't fair,
But you see I loved you and I swear,
I'd take you with me now.

Falling for you is taking me through,
and I don't care if you think it's not true,
I know exactly where my heart stands.

Let me be on your back standing away from the ray of light that you create.
The small life you own you assure it's a cause to live in and be everyday,
So you do know. The glass heart.
Track Name: Hometown
Take me back in time there was just light
know me for what I was, someone kind

if it wasn't for you I was always shaking and got strong on my own
so let me close my eyes and feel the love, nowadays it's lost

Honestly, we know each other, like brothers we grow tall
and the separate lives we're living brought us far
The memories we bring inside will fill our watercourse
like a salmon life someday we'll come back home

Somethings never do change in my life
something that we always have inside

All the nights we looked up we felt our freedom, the seasons on our skin
The days went by so fast I feel my boundless youth now rest

Honestly, we know each other, like brothers we grow tall
and the separate lives we're living brought us far
The memories we bring inside will fill our watercourse
like a salmon life someday we'll come back home
Track Name: Faded Lights & Lanterns
Deep inside my stomach I was holding all my thoughts,
and it looked like another circus, was my face the one to talk,
and the more I tried to help it, the more I realized,
I was hiding like a baby, I was hiding from the start

And down your thighs my mind flew on,
the words I wrote, another night, another dream you left me
alone on this empty dance floor , we missed we blew,
another chance, another time to get me through

Last night it was snowing while I was at the same bar,
like a coward I didn't call you, but I swear I wouldn't mind,
if I owe you a thousand reasons, honey you can have them all
and the worst thing that I noticed, I have tons I already wrote

And down your thighs my mind flew on,
the words I wrote, another night, another dream you left me
alone on this empty dance floor , we missed we blew,
another chance, another time to get me through

Faded lights and lanterns on the road,
and with a deep breath I'll get closer and I will make the miracle on my own.
Track Name: We Both Know
I walked you home, I'm standing straight and I'll leave you by the porch
Looking at the rain is like a mirror, we both know.

The clock reads 7.24, the light is almost gone
and everything around looks red and purple, we both know.

And if you feel so lonely, babe, you'll not regret this
Just try to read your mind, your thoughts, should I just guess this?
Follow your heart alongside your regrets so we can roll back home.

Your long sleeves, your skinny jeans you left right at the door,
they're waiting for the sun to push up morning, we both know.

Our cold feet, the lack of noise, the colors of your room,
and feelings that consume us still we're nothing, but we both knew.

And if you feel so lonely, babe, you'll not regret this
Just try to read your mind, your thoughts, should I just guess this?
Follow your heart alongside your regrets so we can roll back home.

The tears will show off now,
The worst dies in a glass,
And the smoke got clear so fast we can now roll back home.
