Track Name: The Bell
Oh, I could never prepare myself for this

Sweetest I know that it is hard now
it is hard to be in your clothes
it's hard to know where to start now
it is hard to be here all left alone

'cause someone pulled away the rug under your feet
and someone slipped away just leaving you with grieve
and someone hit the bell that only rings once
and the silence that comes after is without comparison

I see myself in you (you you)
we are so much alike (oh yes we are)
you teach me how to deal with
the hardest parts of life

so someone pulled down a curtain in your face
and you came home to find your home being disgraced
'cause someone hit the bell that only rings once
and that brings out of people what they normally want to hide

O, I could never prepare myself for this
Track Name: Foul
Who will see the fire
who will follow the flow
How come your uglyness
makes beauty inside my soul

I thought I saw you today
made me weak in the knees
and aware of my insides
for threehundred meters at least

Foul, foul on my heart
Hey hey stop it please
this is growing into something
that feels just like a disease
Foul, foul on my heart
Hey hey stop it please
this is growing into something

Who will see the lighting
who will grasp the unknown
While I'm stepping over lines
you are breaking laws

I thought I saw you today
made me weak in the knees
and aware of my insides
for threehundred meters at least

Foul, foul on my heart
Hey hey stop it please
this is growing into something
that feels just like a disease
Foul, foul on my heart
Hey hey stop it please
this is growing into something
that feels like and endless disease

and appearently we're always coming
back to this moment somehow
will I ever know what it stands for
will I ever be kissing your mouth
or will my thougts keep returning
and will the riddle never crack
will I always keep on searching
for that what I saw in your eye
Track Name: Holes
Water's coming in water's flowing in
wo ho ho
Water's coming in water's flowing in
wo ho ho
Through the holes in my brand new shoes
wo ho ho
Water's coming in water's flowing in
wo ho ho


Blood is running out, blood is floating down
wo ho ho
blood is running out, blood is floating down
wo ho ho
from my good old heart, from my broken body parts
wo ho ho
blood is running out, shit fuck it won't stop
wo ho ho


People rushing by, have to step aside
wo ho ho
People rushing by, have to step aside
wo ho ho
ugliness and lies burned into my face
wo ho ho
People rushing by, have to step aside
wo ho ho ho
Track Name: Stay with me
Don't hang it out for everyone to see
I rather keep it locked without a key
I'll never know what might have been
if I don't let my self fall again

darling stay with me until the morning
until the birds start singing and the rain stops
darling darling stay with me until the morning

You said you knew the way to my house
but we ended up on the other side of town
and when you said "I could fall in love with you"
it seemed like you'd already decided to

stay with me until the morning
until the birds start singing and the rain stops
darling darling stay with me until the morning
until the morning comes

(solo)

go pick up your things when she's not at home
I will be waiting here by the door
but don't expect my arms to be open forever
you have to decide, make up your mind

but stay with me until the morning
until the birds start singing and the rain stops
darling darling stay with me until the morning
until the morning comes
Track Name: Carve out my heart
I thought I was made from a strong piece of wood
firmly carved out
but it turns out
that even if my roots go deep in the ground
there is one wind that could blow me down

So I fell for you and you fell in my arms
and the summer night was full of shining stars
when you told me you were doubting I just couldn't believe I heard you right
no uh, no uh

So carve ou my heart
finish what you started
put it in a glass can and watch it slowly die
tonight I had it up 'til here
so comeon and do it now
finish me, finish me, finish our love

So we ended our love when the trees turned yellow
the street was filled with coulourful leaves
but you lingered in me like an indian summer
when all I longed for was winter and cold

So carve ou my heart
finish what you started
put it in a glass can and watch it slowly die
tonight I had it up 'til here
so comeon and do it now
finish me, finish me, finish our love

So I told it to your face
how I feld and your reaction delayed
Should've ended this right away
but you kept on blowing on to my flame
Track Name: Love in itself
You, you come around
sticking to me
and I don't know what's wrong
why we always seem
to make a mess
it's me I guess
who always find it hard
is this what we've come to now
it was sweet for a while
but now it sucks
and it seems to get worse
seems to when

you, you slam the door
and I'm left here
when you run down the stairs
like a thunderstorm
I am a lake
frozen and calm
that melts and breaks
only when you're far away
I am missing you then
I should have said
don't be gone a long time my friend

I don't want to invite
anyone else
into my deepest parts
open up my heart
you occupied all of that space
when you came rushing in
when this story took it's start
I remember it well
the hardest part
is it love in it self?
but come here now we can try to be nice
we've come so far
let's not waste our time
waste no more time
Track Name: A storage plan
The sound of silence
that breaks with a thunder
the smell of rain
as it falls in the summer

all the things that you shared
so many things now packed in bags
a storage plan, a storage plan
coversations that we make
decicions that can not wait
a storage plan a storage plan

but oh I can never share your pain
you will keep it
forever and ever and ever
but hey, I can hold your hand in mine
and stay with you tonight

The spring won't come
'til your heart is melting
the wound never heals
but I know it will get easier

all the things that you shared
so many things now packed in bags
a storage plan, a storage plan
coversations that we make
decicions that can not wait
a storage plan a storage plan

II: And oh I can never share your pain
you will keep it
forever and ever and ever
but hey, I can hold your hand in mine
and stay with you
stay with you tonight :II
Track Name: In to heaven
First and second time it doesn't count
try a third you'll be rewarded twice
and you learn to never push the game
now you know there is no shorter way

out of here
and in to heaven
your body's free
your MIND is eased

52 cards and a sunday night
time is passing slower for a while
many teacups many hours more
until you'd be taken by the storm

out of here
and in to heaven
your body's free
your soul makes cartwheels

Spring flowers they will grow
cover the grass and stones
do you feel what I sing
do you hear what is growing
do you see life without knowing


52 white, 36 black
all of them are known by your hands
wish I'd seen you making them alive
it belongs to another time

you're out of here
your in heaven
so play for me
in my deepest dreaming
Track Name: Jag tar smällen
Sakta genom stan glider jag fram
på aningslösa drömmar
det är sommar
och i min hand finns din
stan är samma gamla
fast ändå ny som få
allting känns och allting finns där
bara för dig och mig

regnet faller och hösten kommer
men det gör ju inget för du är med mig
och håller paraplyet över mitt huvud
sen blir vi förkylda men vadå, det gör ju inget
för jag kan knepen som får oss att bli friska igen

men snart är sommaren slut
och du ska ta ditt förnuft tillfånga
spärra in ditt hjärta igen på ditt ungkarlshotell
(där allting blir mycket enklare) för alla utom mig
och så går vi tillbaks till det gamla och stan blir igen (igen) precis det den var förut

Jag tar smällen för det finns inget annat alternativ
men samtidigt undrar jag såklart
hur det hade varit om du varit gjord av ett hårdare material
om modet haft en större procent av det totala innehållet
om vi hade nån som helst potential
Track Name: Streets are different
We match just like matches
you fire just like a soldier
I starve just lika a sparrow
we burn within the longing

when the time is right
we will see the sun
when the sea is calmer
we can walk on the shore

when the rust is fading
when the hurricanes revealing
when the acid is cleansing
we'll be able to stop the bleeding

a longing within me
an urge within you
we never seem to reach
eventhough we make an effort

streets are different
days are floating
my home is a vessel
that travels too far

a longing within me
an urge within you
a longing within me
a longing within me
