Ond Cirkel 03:06
Every day is a war Resisting the same old behaviors Childhood and memories coming back around Carving wounds in my heart When happiness is a chore The batteries running low There no more alternation To my pattern of thoughts En ond cirkel Ett rop på hjälp Jag har aldrig kunnat dölja det så alla ser det Jag har aldrig kunnat dölja det så alla hör det Men bara jag Kan rädda mig själv

Heartfuck 04:28
I'm such a nice guy So breaking my heart is totally fine I thought we were friends But when temptation strikes we're all assholes This time all the words came out right I finally dared to open my mouth And what did it mean to you? Nothing Please Just let me out of your world I don't wanna be part no more And please Next time I give you my heart Just give it back and tell me to fuck off You stepped over me like dirt Though his lips on your lips was obviously deserved When I hide under the covers You keep me from sleeping Painting dirty pictures of you in my eyelids Please Just let me out of your world I don't wanna be part no more And please Next time I give you my heart Just give it back and tell me to fuck off Just tell me to fuck off

It's to dream about two While forgetting one It's to hang out with the happy Putting on your best smile While still staying quiet Carrying such a loud mind It's to look in the mirror Whispering dark lies to you To replay the same damn tune Though you know it's hurting you It's songs for us It's songs for us lonely souls

Began building inside my bones I made a little place of my own Started out with a single room Then it grew and grew To thirteen rooms and a swimming pool And heading outside Made me go deeper inside To just hang around Putting up paintings on my walls Thinking Will I be alone for the rest of my life? Thinking Will I be alone for the rest of my life? Thinking And I've finally made a room for you It's full of photographs in sepia tone Showing travels around the globe Showing messy beds and messy heads That fit so perfectly together Will I be alone for the rest of my life? Thinking Will I be alone for the rest of my life? Thinking Just thinking Just thinking too much I'm thinking too much

All my past lovers Gathered today For a meeting in my head They talked about all pros and cons Talked about their new husbands and sons And reminded me It's a ghost conference Nothing we say here is true We just want you to believe it Cause all we wanna do is hurt you We just wanna hurt you It's a ghost conference Nothing we say here is true We just want you to believe it Cause all we wanna do is hurt you

How am I supposed to give you Something I can't give myself How am I supposed to give me Compassion for who I am When my love turns black For days and nights Forwards Backwards Repeating the cycle Forwards Backwards For all my years to come In a shameful pool of dirt Someone's talking to me With the darkest words I've heard Though it sounds somewhat like me I have kept the worst words to myself Not to bother everyone else I can't stand myself Will you please help me? I can't stand myself Will you please help me become someone else?

Unelma 02:14
In your voice I hear revolving doors In your dreams I forgot my baby at home while heading out on tour It changes my confidence Into something new I am jumping off cliffs And really enjoying it My ex-girlfriend died Shocked by an amplifier And now I see her in everyone Wherever I go I think I want you But I am lying to myself Because I'm just missing Something else

Väntan 04:30
Jag har berättat för dig Allt jag har inom mig Nu finns det ingenting mer jag kan göra Jag har berättat för dig Allt jag har inom mig Nu finns det ingenting mer jag kan göra Och din väntan Krossar mig långsamt Jag har berättat alldeles för mycket för dig Kanske borde jag bara välja nån annan att tänka på Du har berättat för mig Att jag inte räcker åt dig Nu finns det ingenting mer jag kan göra Så din väntan Krossar mig långsamt

I want to get inside your head Well I'll be dead soon anyways I tried to win your heart But made it fall apart instead Why can't we be like all the lucky ones
10.
Two drunks in Germany Wondering how it's supposed to be Love is lovely Close and far away I just don't know what to say Or how to be with you tonight Tonight I just don't know how to be with you tonight Your number is in my phone But you can't touch me now Cause it's the first time we met It's the first time we met Tonight Would it be too weird to stay with me tonight? Would it be too weird?
11.
There is higher powers involved When I see your face it glows All your energies soaring around Your body, your mind Remember me When I go away To faraway lands To different dimensions Like I remembered you And all else disappeared It's been such a long time Since I could look someone like this in the eyes Without the slightest trace of fear I know all I need is here No one can make me smile No one can make me laugh Like you do
