OTHER SUMMERS

CHASING SUN  

Chasing sun

We're sliding through the summer

We belong

To places where the light is shining

Facing the sun

We're slipping for each other

Turned around

Behind closed doors someone is calling

Racing home

We wake up with each other

We belong

A bright blue sky is smiling

What it was

What it was

Could never be again

I'll become

What I was

Though I'll never be again

Chasing youth

We're sipping in the summer

We return

To places where the light is dying

What it was

What it was

Could never be again

I'll become

What I was

Though I'll never be again

 

RIDE AWAY 

It's time to run this season

Walking through my suspicions

My feet are turning away

My eyes look straight ahead

Grateful to my fate

It's out of sight

All truth becomes lies

Ride away

And feel disgraced

I leave no trace

So here we go nowhere again

It's time to count the reasons

Backwards through my illusions

My arms hold on tight

My legs kick far away

Grateful to my fate

It's out of sight

Our youth is our life

Retract my heart 

From where I started

There comes a time to walk away

A central thought materializes

Turns my crisis into your name

Ride away

And feel disgraced

I leave no trace

So here we go nowhere again

 

SECRET PLACE

There are some flames I could never put out

There are some games I miss somehow

It's a trait

That makes me proud

My friends laugh

As we carry on

We say 

All is a mistake

And we sway

As we sing

But its too late

My secret place

Gone up in flames 

My secret place

We'll fade away 

Trouble is on its way

But no matter 

You say I for one am sensible

But you always play

Predictable

As we sway

All is a mistake 

My secret place

My secret place

My secret place 

Gone up in flames 

My secret place

We'll fade away

My secret place

Gone up in flames 

My secret place

 

WAGONS

I'll let you know when

When no one is around

I'll see you going

Through the night until the dawn

And when this is over

We'll be what might be ours

Wagons of sand

That's how I build my plans

Caught in this frame

So who should hold the blame

You came tonight 

To show me all your rights

I don't care

If there's nothing else

I'll confess 

All the wishes stay

In my head

I will give them away 

Wagons of sand

That's how I fill my hands

I'm lost in this place

A space where you belong

And when this is over

You dreams will all be gone

 I don't care

If there's nothing else

I'll confess 

All the wishes stay

In my head

I will give them away

I don't care

If there's someone else

I'll confess 

All the wishes stay

In my head

I will give them away

 

WOODEN SHIPS

You build your wooden ships

To pass time up and no longer live

In the midst of those who call you by your name

You hide up in the trees

You scratched your knees and broke your wrist

So high up to look down 

On those you know you’ll never miss

It’s all in your mind

It’s all in the plans

In your mind

You keep on learning

Your time is turning 

A wish is growing

As it’s moving away

Easier and closer

Hectic and frozen

 

LET YOU GO

Take what you can

With all the strength that's left in you

Why would you care

If you will fail 

To teach yourself

All over again

Horizons burn

Release your claim

What would you say  

To someone ho will never get their way

I always know

I let you go 

I always know

I let you go

Make what you plan

With all the rest you ever need

How can you stare

At those who cared to believe you

All over again

The rivers flood

All wash away

What do you leave

To someone who will never take the blame

I always know

I let you go 

I always know

I let you go

 

TODAY ETERNAL

Everybody goes here and after

Everything moves so much faster

All your misses feel a little further

You used to try to make it last longer

Thinking back about when your father

Held so tight onto his daughter

Drinking through the night 

Eternal summer

Mornings used to shine a little brighter

Everybody wants you

Nobody needs you

When you're falling though the cracks

Everybody wants you

Nobody holds you

Since you carry on like that

Today Today Today

Today’s the day

I move away

Today Today Today

Today’s the day

I wash away

Thinking back about all the sorrow

Holding on so tight until tomorrow

Sneaking through the light 

Eternal summer

Evenings used to seem a little calmer

Everybody wants you

Nobody needs you

When you're falling through the cracks

Everybody wants you

Nobody holds you

Since you carry on like that

Today Today Today

Today’s the day

I move away

Today Today Today

Today’s the day

I wash away

 

LOVE INCIDENCE

It won't be long now 

It won't be long now

You turn yourself down

It won't be long now

It’s messed up all around

It won't be long now

I survived a haunting

And in the sound of clouds

A voice came falling out 

But some noises make no sound

And some choices drag you down

I swear it was the sea

That took her

Away from me

So tied up in my ways

So caught up in my games

There's silence in your hate 

There's violence in your face 

It's been a while 

It's been a trial

Forced by error

It's been a trial

It's been a wild

Love Incidence 

 

CROWNS

Everyone gets tired

It's hard when your lying

I'm all your seeing

Everyone's gonna keep you breathing

It's hard But we're trying

Let's go make lighting

Everybody's gonna carry you away

Everyone stops trying

It still burns without fire

It’s all a symptom

Everyone's gonna give you a reason

It's wrong but we're flying

Let's go make lighting

Everybody's gonna carry you away

It’s the greatest trend 

It took too much to end

There is only life to give

So just sacrifice 

All your days to nights

That's the latest joke to play

 

OTHER SUMMERS

I was not aware

That life could be unfair

When all you keep is faith

Then you let it go to waste

They turn you on to hate

Like memories without taste

False starts made in haste

The summer escapes

 And we’re waiting

Occasionally praying

I’ll be your other

For other summers

I’ll be your brother

I’ll be your daughter

I’ll be your other

I’ll be your father

For another summer

I was made aware

That truth can be a bore

When all you need is more

You think about the waste

They turn you on to fate

Like weekends without waste

Wild misses thrown away

The summer escapes

And we’re waiting

Occasionally praying

I’ll be your other

For other summers

I’ll be your brother

I’ll be your daughter

I’ll be your other

I’ll be your father

For another summer

 

WALK CHEERFULLY 

Now your time to be

Will no longer mean a thing

Complete yourself 

If it all collides

You'll forget the things you say

Retrace your steps doesn’t matter what remains

You won’t be alone tonight

But you’ll keep twisting away

It won’t do you harm tonight

But they’re insisting you stay

It’s a long walk home 

Someone has to play

Sometimes someone else decides your fate

Would you fear to speak

If the words are undefined

The lights will sway

And intentions are delayed

You step far but it's much farther 

You try hard but its much harder

Skies are falling through an emptiness

On everything

Will everything be again

You won’t be alone tonight

You keep twisting away

They won’t do you harm tonight

They’re insisting you stay

You stay

 

EVERYDAY EVER AFTER

The fire burned out as I walked out of the room

And into the night as the sun settles down

The car wouldn't start, it never does on its own

I should drive home but it’s cold and I'm stoned

As I Die

Shimmering lights

Show the way to get home

You're alright on my own

I’m alright all alone

It's the way 

We get lost

The morning bears down, and its constant and true

A tiny white flame burns my hand and it's you

Day after day to tick of the clocks

Day after day as we learned to walk

As I Die

Shimmering lights

Show the way to get home

I'm alright on my own

You're alright all alone

It's the way 

We get lost
