Track Name: Boyhood
That’s how it sounds when my faith breaks down
A thousand pieces of sparkling glass
Impossible to recollect, and fix it back to what it was
A sparkling sea of little thoughts
Like waves in dissonance
But moving lively and astute
As if just born anew

Ain’t going back again
I was a boy but now a man

All our hopes and broken dreams
Of better days to come
Everything we building up
Is coming to the ground

Come and hold me, never leave me
There’s no going back again
Track Name: Driving Back To London
Driving back to London
In a van that I don’t know
With a dad that’s not my own
What will be waiting there
The last time I was here
Was just after I left my love
And a Menage heart behind
That was on Valentine’s

I sang my song nearby the river
To strangers’ souls this young man’s mind stripped bare
And I dare you don’t you tell him
About the man that he will be
No I dare you don’t you tell him
About the man riding the van

She’s driving back to London
In a train that’s way to slow
Southbound or I don't know
What will be waiting there
Last time we were young
We didn't think about the things, that me might regret
It was a summer night
But we just said goodbye

We sang our songs in Adams garden
Way to shy to look us in the eye
And after all the years I’m wondering
Is there something that still connects our lives
Yeah, after all these years I’m wondering
Track Name: Duel
I think I missed your birthday
I think I missed a lot
When we used to be friends as kids
But I could not keep up
First prayers that we prayed in church
First cigarettes we smoked
Forbidden secrets that we shared
But I could not keep up

Life rolls on like a cargo train
Like a truck in my rear view mirror
A duell I can’t win
Life rolls on, we loose the folks we love
When we don’t know any better
What’s precious and what’s not

You were the one to worry
You were the one to call
Me always in a hurry
Since I left this old town
First prayers that we prayed in church
First cigarettes we smoked
Forbidden secrets that we shared
But I could not keep up

Life rolls on like a cargo train
Like a truck in my rear view mirror
A duell I can’t win
Life rolls on, we loose the folks we love
When we don’t know any better
What’s precious and what’s not

Oh, have I lost it
Oh, have I had my last chance
Oh, have I missed it
I still consider you a friend
Track Name: Lydia
She had to grow up faster than I did
When her life was shaken to the core
Everything she’s living for was questioned
When this night in April they took her home
They took her home

With fifteen years, fifteen years
Her world was torn apart
With fifteen years, fifteen years
She had to grow / a woman

The pressure that was tormenting her heart
Did its’ part turning it in a gem stone
But pain and death will never be a friend
So I guess it was her God and not this old fiend
Not this old fiend

With fifteen years, fifteen years
Her world was torn apart
With fifteen years, fifteen years
She had to grow / a woman

Lydia, he put her to the test
Lydia, that night defeated death
Now you see him, now you see with your own eyes
Now you see him, now you see with your own eyes

With fifteen years, fifteen years
He put her to the test
With fifteen years, fifteen years
The night she unarmed death
Track Name: Come Think Of Me
Have you ever left a part
In another persons’ heart
That seemed to be pure gold at first
But turned to be a sting in flesh

Have you ever thought of how
Something as beautiful as this
Can show its’ teeth and claws
And tear apart the things that we once loved
Yeah, we once loved

Have you ever lost a world
When you happen to be there
Come think of me
Cause I have been down all the way
I lost my world not long ago
Come think of me

Have you ever felt the fear
Of hurting people you hold dear
Where you try hard to use some words
That wouldn’t ache and wouldn’t hurt

Have you ever felt the pain
Of one others’ breaking heart
Where you’re not sure who is to blame
But likely it is on your part
And you know you failed

Have you ever lost a world
When you happen to be there
Come think of me
Cause I have been down all the way
I lost my world not long ago
Come Think Of Me

You Are not alone in this
You won’t be alone in this
Track Name: Maria
Hey Maria, what are you waiting for
Hey Maria, I packed my bag, I’m ready to go

What will become of us
What will they say
What will become of us
If we leave it all behind and walk away

Hey Maria, I promised you to find a job
Hey Maria, it didn’t work out, as we planned

What will become of us
What will they say
What will become of us
If we leave it all behind and walk away
