Track Name: Long Distance Call
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...
Track Name: All We Want To Be
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...
Track Name: Hold
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...
Track Name: Strangers Everywhere
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
Track Name: It's Alright
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!
Track Name: Birds
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
Track Name: Love's Not Here
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
Track Name: Situation
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
Track Name: Winter Favorites
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
Track Name: Another Opening Night
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...
Track Name: Trying To Fall
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
