Each day a lie

HOPE DEFEATED I must find out what I´ve lost before grieving for it. My wounds must be healed before they start to bleed. My eyes, they must turn into swamps before I can see clear. Time must stop to let me live one more year. Darkened love gone for a while. Hope defeated by a lie. Must´ve learnt how to lose before starting this game. Must´ve learnt how to suffer before wishing this pain. Darkened love gone for a while. Hope defeated by a lie.

THE WINTER SUN If you wanna drive I´ll sit behind to see you both help my mind fly over the blackest of greens. Let it slip, time inbetween. All I wished is in my hand. You´ve become my piece of land. Let it freeze, the winter sun. If you go to sleep I´ll stay around. Play some music, feel so down. Let your arm hang from the bed till your fingers touch my hair.

DRY YEARS Spring´s come too soon. I´m leaving home to search all the words I would´ve loved to hear. Spring´s come too soon this year. I´m leaving home again to search all the words I would´ve loved to hear. Torn apart. Drink tears from my heart. Dry years.

EACH DAY A LIE Each day, a lie. Each second, as painful as life. Each day, a lie. Each second´s the truth that you didn´t tell on time. Count on me. Next time you try to love me I´d kill to know it. Count on me. Next time you try to kill me I´d love to know it.

LAST OF YOUR HOPES I think I´ve found in you distant dreams I once made mine, but a side note and ten songs won´t be enough to win your heart. Now it´s time to settle down. Silence gone, words are here. I´m sure his ghost will not come back. Why don´t you hold me as if I was the last of your hopes? You´re the last of mine.

REAL At this point I need to know everything was real and stop wondering how it could have been. Gotta give up dreaming of another life and live the one that boils under my skin. Will you stay around in case I need your eyes? You showed me the right tune, it drives my heart when you´re not here to cruise along my veins. Will that song remain till my blood runs dry?

NEEDED I´ll give you an extra part of me if you hold me like you did once more. You made me feel I was so needed though I knew I was not. I´m not, at least not enough to deserve your smile or your kiss, or your look in my eyes. Why did you treat me as if you loved me? Asking nothing in return. I´m not enough to deserve your smile or your kiss, or your look in my eyes. Treat me as if you loved me. Ask nothing in return.

A SECOND OF… Would it be too much if I ask for a second of silence? Would it be too much if I ask for a second of truth? Won´t you leave me alone? You can´t pay off what you owe me. You´re as dead as the one who can´t be further away.

WITHOUT Thanks for giving me your light on a night like this, cruel as life without love, real as you and me. Do I have to walk alone the long way? Thanks for bringing me this sour gift as you held me tight, the right words for this desert with no end in sight. Do I have to walk alone the long way?
