Track Name: Better Days
holding on
waiting for the sun to shine
and the feeling is strong
I’ll never see the day

memories
fall apart I can’t make out
try to build them again
try to make them work

watching you sleep
the waves of the sea
are crashing on me

will there be better days to get through ?
please, can I sleep forever now ?

just a child
dreaming of the life she’ll lead
looking up to her mum
crying I won’t go home

arms are bruised
sunlight on the bedroom wall
“no, i’m not coming out
I’m never coming out”

don’t lecture me
the anger you see
is yours to believe

will there be better days to get through ?
please can I sleep forever now ?
Track Name: A Love That Won't Let You Go
standing there
before you close the window
I turn around and smile again once more

a love that I know
the love that won’t let you go

I found myself again
the streetlights in the rain
the silence in your car
makes the world seem far

in the dark
letters still unopened
walk away and never come back home

a love that I knew
the love that won’t let you go

I found myself again
the ocean and the sand
the blindness of the sun
I want to hold your hand

how could I know ?
why should I care ?
when all you’ve said and done leaves me cold...

i found myself again
a hill beside the sea
a little plot of land
will you wait for me ?
Track Name: In The Coach Station Light
can’t let you say goodbye
can’t let you go
we’ve come so far together
there’s love, you know

i’ve been here riding along with you
eyes closed train rolling along with you

coffee and magazines
coach station light
cashier calls out for me
you’re nowhere in sight

i’ve been here riding along with you
eyes closed train rolling along with you

take your hand
look away
promises another day
i wish i had the chance to say
“please marry me.”

the stars are in the sky tonight
with you they shine so bright
Track Name: Summertime Flight
once again, I lost my way
need to focus every day

I’m back on my own
I’m back in the game

voices on the radio
listen I already know...
how much have you lost ?
how much have you gained ?

you’ve wasted your life
you’ve wasted your life on me
a soft ray of light
a summertime flight
and you’ll see

i’ve had a lot time to feel
enough to know my heart’s not real
i’m not very good
at starting again

you’ve wasted your life
you’ve wasted your life on me
a soft ray of light
a summertime flight
and you’ll see

a ray of light
summer night
now your gone

a kiss on sight
i’ve lost the fight
love is gone

face,
pressed against the window
tears or rain
fall down, down
Track Name: My Heart Is Dancing
i remember when the summer days were long
and i think about you when they play our song
i'm a hostage to faded memory
and i'm dying inside

why can't they all see me on the other side
my love for you will never die
you see my heart is dancing

waiting for those better days
you promised in so many ways
and still my heart is dancing

i'll follow you, walking in the sun
you feel the light, i'll never let you run
away again, we're living in a dream
wake me up

so i can always see you on the other side
my love for you will never day
you see my heart is dancing

waiting for those better days
you promised in so many ways
and still my heart is dancing

if you save my life
i'm yours 'til the end
will you save my life ?
....i'm yours
