I'm calling out from under the radar And just in case you can't see me I'm trying to make this loud and clear My windows have opened to some kind of morning The wind has conquered the curtains Takes my words far from here A circle is broken and now there's a straight line Shooting through space "will you be mine?" It's time to stand up and say What I want from you Cause there's just one thing left to do...

Hey there, I've been expecting you I wanna know what's on your mind All the motions we've been going through Can you feel it too? We're always a step behind So we're young and free But this place is slowly closing in on me When I look at you and me I ask myself, is this all we want to be? What if this was simply not enough All we did and all we said? And if you really were the one I love Would it spoil that thing we had? I'm gonna let you get on with what you wanna do But this time I really wanna be wrong about you So we're young and free... Is this all we want? Is this all we want to be? And as you walk away I know you feel it too There's gotta be some way, but we still have no clue It's just the price we pay for being free So I can only say I hope that's all you want to be I hope it's all you want to be So we're young and free...

I'm on hold, can't do a thing about you It's overload just trying to think about you Whisper your name, sounds just like my one and only Oh damn it, I've been so lonely So I'll wait on the line and I'll waste my time But that's all I can do I can barely hold myself together now As I hold out for you You can check my mind There's something quite strange about me But you're the strangest kind You're stopping the world around me Oh please don't go on without me Cause I wait on the line and I waste my time  But it's all I can do I can barely hold myself together for you In the storm where you stand I'm on hold and you bend No, I can't make a move Only you, only you So I'll wait for the moment you'll break And fall into my frozen open arms Yes I'll wait for that picture to shake and awake and awake Cause I wait on the line...

Well he couldn't believe his eyes but it was her out there By the side of the road and she was trying to get somewhere Well he sure hit the brakes and he stopped and he picked her right up So now they race through the night pretending that they'll never stop Well there are houses, streets and towns But we are strangers everywhere Cause the world is a friendly place But there's no love out in the air She said, roll down the window and let them hear us sing God, I wish I could remember everything This is the place where they stopped in the dead of night And this is the room where he loved her so much he could have cried And just as they were seizing the moment, well, the moment just died. Cause baby, there's a heart and a home But we'll be strangers everywhere Thinking we might not be alone But we're not getting anywhere And she said, boy, if I could fly I would just spread my wings God, I wish I could remember everything Got a head full of memories that don't connect Got a heart full of longing and a conscience like a car wreck Well she couldn't believe her eyes, but it was him out there

It's alright, It's alright if you It's alright, It's alright if you Hurry down those stairs to catch your train And leave me to my loneliness again Cause I'm alright, I'm alright if you are Yeah I'm alright, and it's alright if you Go away if that's where you want to be I'll be okay even if you don't come back to me But I'm gonna fight for that love inside of me It's not gonna die - It's gonna stay with me So it's alright if you go home But maybe you'll be all alone Then swallow your pride and run right back to me Through the evening light I´m gonna take you home with me To feel alive, to feel these things again To change my life into something good again But it's alright if you don't feel this way (x2) It's alright if you don't love me (x3) Today Oh no!

Birds they come and gather in your garden But let's not care about the coming dawn Let us smash the nightmare of our parting And let them pick the pieces off the lawn Let that magpie steal your ring, let the others chirp and sing Let's start From the very darkest night Let the morning come and light up our hearts Birds they know exactly why they've come here All the trees around here bear strange fruit Of passion that explodes right into loneliness and fear Now I know it is their favourite food Let that magpie steal your ring... People think we're crazy, let them think so They will not be here tommorrow night Beneath the harvest moon we'll let all the loneliness go And birds will start to sing before first light

Adam dances down the stairs with the gold hat well in place Sarah rises from her chair and calmly checks her face For signs of madness or fatigue, but you can only see her smile So she waits for him and something else She's been waiting for a while The nights get longer and longer The darkness stronger and stronger I only want to see your face again Well I know him and I know her I know that strange kind of hunger I step right out into the night again But love's not here tonight I've been checking every corner in the fading light Love's not here tonight (x2) But there are fireworks on the other side of town. He thinks, please don't let me down like that, this can't be all! She waits for his answer fo come out and hit the wall Strange things happen every day, more so they do at night So let's compromise on staying friends I know you'll be alright The nights get longer and longer The darkness stronger and stronger I only want to see your face again Well I know him and I know her I know that strange kind of hunger For that one kiss to make it right again Till she cry, "Lover! Lover! Lover! I must have you!" But love's not here tonight

Well, I don't want to spoil your night But the girl who loves you is not alright Locked herself up, won't come outside While you were out having a ball She tore her pictures off the wall And threw her books into the hall We got a situation here as deep as the cover runs We got a situation here and you're the only one She said she tried but now she's done Struggling through like everyone I guess being poor's no longer fun We got a situation here in the heart of hipster town And its further complications might just bring everybody down We got a situation here cause she won't take no more lies And I'm afraid the veil is lifting from her eyes It used to be an easy life Everlasting twenty-five We got a situation here as deep as our cover runs We got a situation here and you're the only one That she might talk to So I hope you will hear this and run home Cause I can see the veil is lifting from her eyes

Summer got here fast but it's moving slow, I'm playing Winter favorites on my stereo I was raising hell but had to let it go Winter favorites playing soft and low Oh, hello you're not gonna bring me down Oh, hello you're not gonna chase me through town Oh, hello you're not gonna turn me around I'm still a fighter though I don't look like it Just caught a downer and got hooked on it White dots connecting to a big blank page Lots of room for long forgotten rage Oh, hello... I never thought my life could be this way Chasing dreams to watch them slide away Am I here or somewhere out in space Ice crystals melting on my face
10.
The world is back, it's not dropped dead It's still alive, it just stopped kicking for a while The weird guys won, your life goes on The days roll by, you've just been dreaming for a while Of roses grown to be thrown at your feet Well, now you know they're not what you really need So get up and stagger out of the spotlight Where you took those blows and died On another opening night (x2) Embrace that end, embrace your friends They've come for you, they're letting you see the way ahead A bunch of fools, the good guys rule For one more night it's all alright to face that empty bed Of roses grown...
11.
So where did we go with our lives? And why are we here tonight? Look at the clouds gathering over the plain Look at the people hurrying home through the rain Maybe I don't know you at all But I think that I am trying to fall Maybe I don't know you at all But I think that I am trying to fall for you Here I am, starting out where I began And so I run, encircle your heart once again In the only way I can Maybe I don't know you at all But I think that I am trying to fall Maybe I don't know you at all But I'm running and I‘m trying to fall for you There's something in your eyes I wanna hold on to And it's all that I have for now So every single time I look at you I just try to fall somehow Maybe I don't know you at all But I think that I am trying to fall Maybe I don't know you at all But I think that I am trying to fall What will be no one knows Cause love comes and love goes But you see how it is It's one shot, so don't miss There's just one thing left to do
