Track Name: Wish you looked at me
I'm looking at you, drowning in your eyes
But you walk away, as if you despise me
Why do you make me feel I’m invisible
Make me understand it’s impossible

But I wish you looked at me just for one time
You've got to realise that I just need you
And I wish you could see me 'cause then you would find
Someone who would die just for you

But you're so far, a million light-years away
You can't seem to feel the same way as I do anyway
Inaccessible, still I try to reach you
If only you could see how much I want you

But I wish you looked at me just for one time
You've got to realise that I just need you
And I wish you could see me 'cause then you would find
Someone who would die just for you

How can you see me when I'm so faraway?
You remain distant, don't try to communicate
I try to move closer but you stay away
So unimportant, I'm feeling so frustrated

But I wish you looked at me just for one time
You've got to realise that I just need you
And I wish you could see me 'cause then you would find
Someone who would die just for you
Track Name: Waste yourself
Looking for a lost reality
Nothing left to hope for
I know you got your little problems
But drowning them won’t make things better

Self-destruction, what’s become your inner self ?
You keep burning yourself out
Got nothing to hang on to

Chorus :
You’re wise and you’re beautiful
But if you keep giving in
You’ll just waste yourself, waste yourself

Don’t you become another victim
Don’t become another clone
Influenced by fake friends around you
Don’t hold your hand out - you deserve better

Alienation, you’ve become somebody else
Got to fight from the inside
And change into someone new

Chorus

Self-destruction, what’s become your inner self?
Got to fight from the inside
And change into someone new

Chorus
Track Name: More than that
I'm lying in wait for the phone to ring
I check if it's working every five minutes or so
I wonder what new lame excuse you're gonna find to justify yourself this time

If you're trying to disgust me, it's just the right way
But if it's not intended I'd like you to realise how you make me feel

You see me through a wall of false ideas
But there is more than meets the eye
You're not just like any old friend
You mean more to me than that

Should I call you right now - It might seem too harassing
Should I leave you to do it - might have to wait for two weeks again
I'm torn between my inner pride and all the feelings that remain even with the things you put me through

Do you know how it hurts when you keep blocking my way?
And if it's just unconscious I'd like you to understand this is more than real

You see me through a wall of false ideas
But there is more than meets the eye
You're not just like any old friend
You mean more to me than that

But now you're gone
All of my dreams, you just ripped them to pieces
But it's so hard
All of my life regrets will haunt me
All of my life...


deleted lyrics :
Why didn't I tell you?
I waited too long, said I'd do it later
I should've taken action

You saw me through a wall of false ideas
But there was more than met the eye
You weren't just like any old friend
You meant more to me than that
Track Name: Head High
Hi, I’m back. Do you remember me?
Got to set things straight before I let you go
You left without saying goodbye
Before we’re through I gotta let you know

I loved you. So many tears I cried just to see you
I feared you. So much pain I felt when I tried to grasp you

Got my head high even though I feel it’s unachieved
Went out head high. Look at me now – who do you see?

Didn’t even care to listen to me
When I finally managed to let it out
And you just didn’t give a fuck
When in your face I tried to cry it out

I’ll tell you: I’ll have you know that I’m feeling better
Forgotten you, all of me and you and all I’ve been through

Got my head high even though I feel it’s unachieved
Went out head high. Look at me now – who do you see?

(deleted lyrics :
Emotions hidden away by fear, shyness and insecurity
During all this time I kept it inside
Once I won against my inhibitions, once I was ready
When I finally let it out you were nowhere to be found)

Got my head high… Mmmh
Went out head high… Mmmh

Got my head high even though I feel it’s unachieved
Went out head high. Look at me now – who do you see?
And I hope you feel sorry now
(scat)
Head High…
Track Name: Space Farmer
Woke up this morning, my girl next to me
Can’t remember all that we shared
Didn’t expect that to happen, thought she didn’t want me
Now I’m all shook up, no I wasn’t quite prepared

Her incense is all around me
All of my clothes smell of her now
This is so strange, weird and somehow everything’s new to me
We gotta turn it into something good, but then I’m not quite sure how

I got the blues, I got the blues
I can’t stand up cos I don’t fit in my shoes
Where this leads I don’t really know
Anyway I’ll do it cos I got nothing to lose

Woke up this morning hugging the sheets
Was I just a dream I had then?
I don’t know but one thing is sure, when I hear my heart beat
Think of her all the time, is she in my head again?

Before it even really strikes me
Everything’s changed but everything’s the same
Now I miss her even more when she moves closer to me
Too late to turn back now, now we’ve got to win the game
Track Name: Waiting
Wake up in the middle of the night
Get up and watch the city lights
Because I can’t sleep tonight, no I just can’t sleep tonight

Outside everything is glowing
Don’t want to disturb you as you’re sleeping
As I’m looking, as I’m waiting

Our bodies melt into one
I’m in heaven
Don’t wake me up from this dream
I’m waiting, waiting for you
I’m waiting, waiting for you

As we sink and as we go under the earth
Our souls get closer to each other
We get together, we fuse together

And I’m dreaming you’re the one & only
Cos if it’s not you who will it be?
The one to love me, to love me

Our bodies melt into one
I’m in heaven
Don’t wake me up from this dream
I’m waiting, waiting for you
I’m waiting, waiting for you

You’re wrong, I hope someday you’ll realise
Why can’t you see my heart in your eyes?
Too bad, got work to do
And forget, time to move on
Track Name: Where is she
I’ve lost someone that never really was mine
I’ve been looking for her for a very long time
Many many times I thought I had her
But I was wrong I couldn’t find my treasure

I’ve looked for her everywhere
Over here and over there
Looked for her everywhere

Where is she? x3

She must be hiding, and if that’s really the case
She must be well hidden cos I can’t find the right place
It would be so easy if she just showed up
But somehow she doesn’t seem to make her mind up

I’ve looked for her everywhere
Over here and over there
Looked for her everywhere

Where is she? x3

Lost among the crowd of ordinary people
Hidden behind the faces of every other woman
Isn’t it supposed to be a little more simple?
Or am I getting too used to complication?

I’ve looked for her everywhere
Over here and over there
Looked for here everywhere

Where is she? x2
Track Name: Kamikaze
I’m on my plane, got my heart to deliver
While I fly I feel it getting bigger and bigger

I’m about to explode though I know it’s not the right way
Shouldn’t be such a sad boy, I know but anyway…

I’m in this game, trying not to lose
I know how to play, but there’s too many rules

One thing I discovered is that love cannot be deserved
Might be worth a thousand others but if I haven’t got the nerve….

I’m a kamikaze
Blowing me up, I’m suicidal
I’m a love fool, but believe me
I’d so much prefer it to be normal

I’ve often dreamt I told you all I wanted
But it’s quite clear that no excuse is granted

Once again, what I should do, is talking instead of letters
But I fell, fell for you, and thought writing would be better

I’m a kamikaze
Blowing me up, I’m suicidal
I’m a love fool, but believe me
I’d so much prefer it to be normal

I’m about to explode though I know it’s not the right way
Shouldn’t be such a sad boy, I know but anyway…

I’m a kamikaze
Blowing me up, I’m suicidal
I’m a love fool, but believe me
I’d so much prefer it to be normal
I’m a kamikaze
Blowing me up, I’m suicidal
I’m a love fool, but believe me
I’d so much prefer it to be normal
Track Name: Tale of two
Instrumental track.

Intended lyrics (by Carolina) :
Content he was walking, discovering while talking
That lo and behold his English was weak
She came along, sang to his song
And off they went down the street

Slowly but surely she saw he was curly
Her fingers she twirled along the soft strands
He fell asleep and tucked in his feet
On her small bed of faraway lands

His kisses were sweet, what fun they did meet
While talking of subjects that mattered
When words had been said, they just stayed in bed
And paid no heed to clothes that were tattered

She knew how to dance and gave him a chance
To prove himself and his manliness
And with a great frown she decided to sit down
And understand this whole jazz business

He wanted to see her but only to please her
So he asked kindly & respectfully
Up she arose, barebacked and posed
And his hands discovered simplicity

Walking to classes they followed the masses
With deviations never prepared
Often they drank, together on one tank
Biting into this piece of life they shared

Too soon he was gone, her heart all gone wrong
For she had let him cry on her shoulder
Tears invaded her system as she thought of how she missed him
And the coals that once burned now smouldered

Happily she retraces all the wonderful paces
Together they took hand in hand
But she must let go, and he help her do so
By not rubbing it in with more sand

They had to be clever and never proclaimed “forever”
Knowing it was not going to last
But she has changed, will never be the same
And has one more story in her past

Yes it does hurt, like too much dessert
But she knows how to make sugar from a sour lemon
Now dawn comes after night, watch what I say with all my might
I hope your eyes can listen to everything here written
Track Name: Goodnight
Laugh & smile together
Teach & educate each other
Tell each other the biggest secrets of our lives
Dance & get sexy together
Tickle, stroke, and hug each other
Getting closer to each other every time

We bounce off each other to do the maddest things
We just need to say “let’s go!” to know the night is just beginning
Pleasantly, gently, softly, we’re killing each other, but we make sure it’s that way

You are all I ever wanted
A dance partner, partygoer
You follow me and listen to me
You give me everything I needed
You love me as much as I DO
Give me affection and self-confidence too

You're my friend and I'm glad I found all that in you
But I'm not in love, can't afford to fall now for you
You already are in love and I'll be gone shortly
So let's not go all the way

But please, please, before we get torn apart by circumstances, let me kiss you one last time
This night may last forever, but still… goodnight, goodnight
Goodnight, goodnight.
Track Name: Youth
Running, running till the end
Stopping and catching our breath
Getting dizzy again
The love and the passion have just started today

Cos we laugh and we cry
Stay up until we die
Though we know we decide we just don’t care
And we party all night
Stay awake until daylight
We’re in love and not going anywhere

Youthful and lively and reckless and unaware
When we open our eyes
We want to see it all and discover everywhere

Cos we laugh and we cry
Stay up until we die
Though we know we decide we just don’t care
And we party all night
Stay awake until daylight
We’re in love and not going anywhere

Then I’m gone
And suddenly it’s being taken away
Where am I ?
I’m far away, there’s no going back
To this dream, to this dream...

Cos we laugh and we cry
Stay up until we die
Though we know we decide we just don’t care
And we party all night
Stay awake until daylight
We’re in love and not going anywhere
Though we know we decide we just don’t care
We’re in love and not going anywhere
