Track Name: Two Wrongs Don't Make a Right
Two Wrongs Don't Make a Right

I’m wading through the night
Torn and weary eyed
we were falling way to far
from our hearts

I’ve tried to add it up
equations of our love
delicately put together
only to be rudely torn apart

But baby two wrongs don’t make a right
I’m holding these shadows to the light
I know I promised not to leave your side
But baby two wrongs don’t make a right

I’m reaching for your hand
On my shoulders you would stand
It was close enough to see
But so hard to believe

But baby two wrongs don’t make a right
I’m holding these shadows to the light
I know I promised not to leave your side
But baby two wrongs don’t make a right

And I couldn’t pretend the storm isn’t coming down
And I tip toe around your heart
Battle worn and tired
Nothing is going to make this right

But baby two wrongs don’t make a right
baby two wrongs don’t make a right
I know I promised not to leave your side
But baby two wrongs don’t make a right
Track Name: So Close
So Close

I break through walls and
stumble down beneath your feet to look
Into your eyes them brave
protectors of your thoughts
I hold my hands up in the rain
Catch your tears inside my palms
See the iris in your eyes
slowly melting its disguise

I can still recall
the silent truth that night
you pulled me in
and gently took my hand
to touch your virgin heart
and I can’t believe
you let me get so close
Closer everyday

We sleep in silence as we
synchronize our breath at night
I wrap my arms around your warmth
and pray you don’t drift off
When the crack of dawn appears
and we’re challenged by the light
I see the iris in your eyes
does not dress in its disguise no more

I can still recall
the silent truth that night
you pulled me in
and gently took my hand
to touch your virgin heart
and I can’t believe
you let me get so close
closer everyday

when I touched you where
you had not been touched before
I realised my heart was just as much
A virgin as yours

I can still recall
the silent truth that night
you pulled me in
and gently took my hand
to touch your virgin heart
and I can’t believe
you let me get so close
Closer everyday
Track Name: Second Thoughts
Second Thoughts

I’m having second thoughts again
They’re like dust on my mind
Blurring my vision
Changing the light
I feel like I am eight years old again
On the swings in the garden
And I’m going back and forth
Up and down
Somebody’s pushing me all around
And I’m screaming from the top of my lungs
But there is nothing I can do
‘cause I’m strapped to the swing seat

I’m having second thoughts again
I’m changing my mind
No I’m not afraid to fail
Instead I’m scared of succeeding
I feel like I’m on wheel of fortune
And I can never lose
But I keep spinning the wheel
Spinning around
I’m spinning the wheel spinning around
‘cause I don’t ever want to stop dreaming
and wake up to see I’ve got everything I need
I’ve got everything I need....

We’re all having second thoughts these days
We’re all changing our minds
Chasing the dust cloud we perceive as perfection
It feels like you’re being pushed on down the road
And nobody ever wins
We’re just going back and forth up and down
Life’s spinning us all around
Oh I’m sick and I’m tired of aiming so high
I just want to smell the grass on my feet
I want to look at the rain in my window
I want to drink tea and learn how to play chess
And then maybe fly to the other end of the world and swim naked in some lagune…..

But I’m having second thoughts again.
Track Name: Another Year
Another Year

You slip into my phone on Friday night
I’m looking for a way to cross the bridge to your side ‘cause
Girl you guide me to a place I long forgot
The way you whisper in my ear

I’ve sung about your silver smile
and I’ve dreamed about these golden days
I love how you ease my mind
And clear the road from holes

Remember on the last day of the year
I took your hand and pulled you near
The sky lit up and vanished all our fears
You danced with me and fell into another year

You sneak into my room on Sunday night
Your lips explore my chest when I turn off the light
And we escape into a lovely sensual dance
And we sing our sweet duets

At night when I’m wrapped round you
And entangle my dreams with yours
I break down my walls for you
And pray this seasons lasts

Remember on the last day of the year
I took your hand and pulled you near
The sky lit up and vanished all our fears
We danced into another year

when my valley is filled with rain my dear
The drops won’t wash away my tears
We float upon the waves into another year

Oooh do you
Remember on the last day of the year
I took your hand and pulled you near
The sky lit up and vanished all our fears
You danced with me and fell into another year
Track Name: Je droomde van de zee
Je droomde van de zee vanacht

Ik heb gestuurd ik heb gewezen
Ik heb staan roepen langs de kant
Ik heb lang naar je gekeken
Naar je geluisterd toen je huilde

Ik heb vaak aan je geschreven
Een stapel letters uit mijn hart
je leert me langzaam te bewegen
want je drijft langzaam naar me toe

Maar je droomde van de zee vanacht
Dat de golven gingen liggen
Oh je droomde van de zee vanacht
Dat het water je omringde
Oh je droomde van de zee vanacht
Dat je niet meer bang was en in één keer sprong

De zware boten in jouw hoofd
Donkere gangen in mijn hart
We hebben veel om te verkennen
We hebben veel om te begraven

Maar ik lijk herboren uit jouw liefde
en vind een roestig oud kompas
dat ons alletwee de weg wijst
door de schaduw van ons licht

En je droomde van de zee vanacht
Dat de golven gingen liggen
Oh je droomde van de zee vanacht
Dat het water me omringde
Oh je droomde van de zee vanacht
Dat je niet meer bang was en in één keer sprong

Langzaam drijf je naar me toe
Maak me niet wakker nu
Langzaam drijf je naar me toe
Langzaam drijf je naar me toe
Maak me niet wakker nu

Ik wil eeuwig blijven drijven
op die allerdiepste droom
langs de schaduw van ons licht

Oh ik droomde van de zee vanacht
Dat de golven gingen liggen
Ja ik droomde van de zee vanacht
Dat het water me omringde
Oh ik droomde van de zee vanacht
Dat ik niet meer bang was en in één keer sprong
Dat ik niet meer bang was en in één keer sprong
Track Name: Waiting
Waiting

It feels like you’re a million miles away
and all color fades to grey
I keep on searching for an answer
I’m staring far into this void in time

feels like you’re slipping through my fingers
like water I can’t grasp
I’ve smashed my heart into your brick wall
far to many times

but I keep waiting
I keep on waiting for your call
but I keep waiting
I keep on waiting for your call

Feels like there’s nothing I can say
that’ll make you want to stay
and write another chapter
in the story of our time

The echo’s of your sweetness
are still ringing in my ears
I know they’ll never break the silence
that’s hanging in my room

but I keep waiting
I keep on waiting for your call
but I keep waiting
I keep on waiting for your call
