In the mirror

IN THE MIRROR The same song as yesterday sounding in my room, the rain falling while the truck drives through. I like this gloom. It`s just this cold, cold feeling. This cold, cold feeling faraway from home. I`m in the mirror, you`re not. It`s the illusion of your face on the wall. I`m in the mirror, you`re not. It`s the dust in the air, I can`t even breathe. It`s the phone downstairs, it will never ring. It`s just this cold, cold feeling. Cold, cold feeling faraway from home. I`m in the mirror, you`re not.

DREAMING `BOUT YOU You said goodbye, you hit the road. I shook my hand to let you know I was in love (I`ll always be). I stood still watching you leave, dreaming that you´ll dream about me. So dark outside, five o`clock. We went to bed, it was getting cold. The sun rose early behind the mountains, (you said): “It`s seven, now I have to go”. You said goodbye, you hit the road. I shook my hand to let you know I was in love (I`ll always be). I stood still watching you leave, dreaming that you´ll dream about me.

THIS FEELING TRUE It all began when my faith became stronger than the words you said till I reached this point of no return. And it was then when my trust flew softly through present and past till I reached this point of no return. I held my breath for years, I guess you did it too. This is how we still keep this feeling true. It all began when my faith became stronger than the words you said till I reached this point of no return. And it was then when my trust flew softly through present and past till I reached this point of no return. I held my breath for years, I guess you did it too. This is how we still keep this feeling true.

I SAW THE LIGHT ON If I only could spend one more night there, in the house where I met you, my darling. When I went upstairs I heard wood creaking, creaking like my heart. I saw the light on and I hoped you´d come back with the morning sun. I saw the light on and I hoped you´d come back in the morning. I will starve to death, I won´t even breathe `cause I only want to speak your language. I remember when we left the party and celebrated. I saw the light on and I hoped you´d come back with the morning sun. I saw the light on and I hoped you´d come back in the morning.

FORGET JUST ANYTHING My songs are safe inside your ears, as safe as they can be. Your words are clean washed by my tears, as clean as they can be. You can remember everything, you don´t need my help to live again. Just close your eyes and think of me as you´ve been doing for years. Your kiss is fresh inside my heart, as fresh as it can be. No one can steal such a memory. I can remember everything, don´t need no help to live again. I just close my eyes and think of you as I´ve been doing for years. And I won´t forget just anything, you know I won´t forget a single sin. I just close my eyes and think of you and me.

THE DAY ´Cause I know there will come The Day no, my heart won´t get tired of giving my love to you and my arms won´t get tired of holding the Earth. ´Cause I´m sure it won´t linger on no, my feet won´t get tired of following marks in the rain and my eyes won´t get tired of looking for you. ´Cause I know that I´ll find you soon yeah, I´m ready to cry though my spirit feels dry in a second just to let my dreams dive in an ocean of joy. Just to let myself die in an ocean of joy.

BLUE You´d been hiding for a long time. You´d been trying to disappear. You´d been searching the last moment. Then, you showed me your deep blue eyes, deeper than the sea. I realized I needed no water to dive but you, but your eyes, but you.

LOVE IN A BOX I found your letters, I found your love in a box. I found a tear drop of yours in a paper I´d lost. Why did you let time slip away? Why do you break my heart today, as you used to? You said you wanted to start a new life someday. So, tell me, why didn´t you just call my name? I would have stayed by your side if you had asked me to fly ´round the world to find you. Be sure I would have found you wherever you were, wherever you hid. Be sure that I will find you wherever you are, wherever you hide.
9.
ON THE VERGE OF TEARS I beg you, please, come with me. If I say I`m sorry, will you hold me? I`m on the verge of tears. Don`t let fear become a friend. If I told you I did, would you forgive me? I`m on the verge of tears. Keep all my tears from rolling down. Keep all my fears from coming `round. Keep all the stars shining bright in the dark of this town. Hold me, I`m on the verge of tears. Keep all my tears from rolling down. Keep all my fears from coming `round. Keep all the stars shining bright in the dark of this town. Hold me, I`m on the verge of tears. Forgive me, I`m on the verge of tears.

14 HOURS 14 hours on the road to feel how all it turns strange, the rain here spits harder than in any other place, and I´d almost forgotten this. Wet socks, dry smile, let me dive into my own world for a while. Don´t say a word. 14 hours on the road to feel how all it turns strange, the rain here spits harder than in any other place, and I´d almost forgotten this.
