Track Name: Like a Kid
When I obey
You say you like to play
Last time I tried
What happened then? It’ll happen again
And when I go all alone I’m stupid
There’s no race I can run by myself

What you want I’m not any more
We used to walk through darling
You keep me stalling
Then you’ve said enough
Nobody dared me to be fair until the bell / Nobody said you had to love me till the bell
And once you say
Is it late for me and you’ll make me forget

And when you’re okay
You water me down like Monet
Procrastinating, waiting for what I’m going to say
You are a lonely bony frozen man
What a happy ending

Chorus

And just like a kid
You’ll get lost on your own
Your shouting and pouting
Won’t help you get home
You Make me and you
Last week, bad news
Forget
Track Name: Dalila (EP edit)
You were sitting in the dark
There’s a ticking coming from behind
It’s granted that at nine the clock is always on time
No matter if you decide to run and go it’s hard to see
it’s a bloody lie that hold your fantasy.

Then as the darkness can be black
Can the sadness seem as sad as you?

I don’t want a lie to keep you going
That you had the day before
And are you gonna smile to keep you from love
Waiting for her, you don’t have to stay
Waiting for her, waiting for her, waiting till she came home

And again you try to pick your mind
But pieces that you find can hold sway over you
Clever words beside the bed, are they calling or not?
Or changing your name just by mistake
There’s a lot of dirty secrets that is better not to name…but

Then as the darkness can be black
Can the sadness seem as sad as you?

I don’t want a lie to keep you going
That you had the day before
And are you gonna smile to keep you from love
Waiting for her, you don’t have to stay
I don’t want a lie to keep you going
That you had the day before
And are you gonna smile to keep you from love
Waiting for her, you don’t have to stay

Then as the sadness can be sad
Can the madness seem as mad as you?

I don’t want a lie to keep you going
That you had the day before
And are you gonna smile to keep you from love
I don’t want a lie to keep you going
That you had the day before
And are you gonna smile to keep you from love

Waiting for her, you don’t have to stay
Waiting for her, waiting for her, waiting for her
Track Name: No Better Sound
I know where you keep your mind in there
I have to find it someway
I’m stuck and staring at the white
The riddle of the night
A dancer in the dark i have to find
I know I'm sleeping in the sky
I’m blurring all the lines
Inside my head I’m reaching for myself

Nowhere I’d rather be now
I know a better sound
coming growing from the ground
So inspiring, wanted to be now
I know you getting down
from the edges of the town

Feeling my worn out way, today
I had a look down on everybody else
They know me better than I know myself
Be right over right away
Cause me, alone I'm blind
It can't be any other way

Nowhere I’d rather be now
I know a better sound
coming growing from the ground
So inspiring, wanted to be now
I know you getting down
From the edges of the town

No better sound
No better sound (out of the town)

Chorus
Track Name: Give It Up
World behind is not coming back
No matter if you’re late cause no one can complain
Flies by again you’d like to change
Will you see better at night?
You’ll be clever out of mind
Give you
Something that could feed you
Clear you up and praise you
Cover up what holds you down

Give it up, give it up for now
Till the lights are leaving lonely
Maybe see you make me lovely
You can't regret
Give it up, give it up for now
Till the drums are sinking slowly
Maybe see you make me ugly
You can't regret

Then once again a place to lay
Where I can figure out my name
I think I left a reck behind
See you go around the lane
Don’t think that you’re not in my game!
Well, take me round again again

Chorus
Track Name: Hello
I have no sunshine I’ve got no fever
No need to cry, you unhappy man
What, when, whatever has already gone
Don’t waste your time explaining now
I’ll tell a lie for you petit amour
Feel good enough to go your way, but not enough to bring you mine
It’s sad to see we’re not so clever
and when you dedicate so much to me and took away this appletree
from me and you, you could never ask me to

Never love for me, so bittersweet
And you go because you need
So when you have not much to say
And when you hate the way love plays
Hello hello hello hello

You called me up a lot today
to figure out what’s on my mind
What can I say? You’re not so clever
And when you dedicate too much to me
And lay down all this apathy
On me and you
You could never ask me to

Never love for me, so bittersweet
And you go because you need
So when you have not much to say
And when you hate the way love plays
Hello hello hello hello

You want me to forget
You just want me to forget
So when you have not much to say
And when you hate the way love plays
Hello hello hello hello
