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

So Close 04:04
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

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.

Another Year 04:04
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

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

Waiting 04:09
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
