Track Name: Autumn
When uncertainty reached my mind, you were there to take my hand,
I am more than thankful for what happened.
You were there to clean the mess, you just did it,
I’ve never been asking for it.

And if we fall apart right now, I wouldn’t care,
I just want to be by your side.
And if we fall apart right now, I wouldn’t care,
I just want to die by your side.

And when you go, you can keep my heart and soul
‘cause I know you deserve it more than anyone.
When the days got shorter, you were the only person
in the world who could colour my heart in red.

And if we fall apart right now, I wouldn’t care,
I just want to be by your side.
And if we fall apart right now, I wouldn’t care,
I just want to die by your side.

Your smile made me smile again.

All this time I thought that my heart has been burnt
down by the sun of every summer day.
To be honest, I think I am not good enough for you
but it’s the best way, I could feel right now.
I’ve been locked inside by empty promises.
You’ve found me broken, full of mistrust.
You couldn’t turn back the clocks but you did open my eyes,
for the things my mind could never create.
My mind could never create. My mind would never create.

Thank you.
Track Name: Stay (feat. Jonas)
If this is what rain on my skin feels like. I want to feel it forever, again and again. I thought it through: the same terrifying scenes in front of my closed eyes. I know I can’t change anything of this but I want you to untie the knot that holds me to the ground. Now I know, I am lost without you. It’s damn true, I feel so useless without you. I watched my dreams die too many times. Please not this time. I promise I will never ever beg again, if you decide to hold my hand. My expectations will always stay memories of failures. That’s why I wish you won’t stay a line in a song, but a part of my life. All my time, I spend waiting and waiting for a light like you. Your appearance shines brighter than everything I’ve ever seen. You’d say I was looking for someone to fall in love. The fucking truth be told I was just searching myself. What a beautiful problem. What a beautiful nothing. Now it’s me, on my knees. Alone and scared: I still hate these nights. You mean everything to me and you could change the way I am, as I would fucking let you do it.
Track Name: Fiveeighteen
I let go of every moment, I let go of every memory, I let go of everything I used to share with you. I rather chose to have no heart, instead of having a broken one. And If you come now, and if you come back home, I won’t be there waiting for you, just like I always said, just like I always did. We are done, there’s no way back. And As you see our dreams never lead us anywhere. For all the let downs I just swallowed, for all the conversations we just skipped, we could have it all if we gave it all. These taking back sunday songs keep killing what’s left inside. You opened my eyes, to show what you’re about to destroy. I hope when you’re drowning, there’s no one to reach your hand. Take your honest job and your honest friends and fuck your honest life. Remember that day when you called me full of tears. I should have hung up to finally forget you. One day you will be honest yourself to and you will miss the times we had.
Track Name: Summer
I’ve been haunted by my conscience since the day we met.
Every word you said still creates these nightmares in my head.
But it’s all just a clear vision of who you really are.
you can’t just walk around and leave these empty hearts.

Keine Liebe, dein Blick ist so viel leerer als dein Herz.
Bist der Grund für das Misstrauen. Bist der Grund für das alles.
Keine Liebe, dein Blick ist so viel leerer als dein Herz.
Bist der Grund für das Misstrauen. Bist der Grund für das alles.

You should know, life is not like in the movies,
There’s no happy ending for anyone of us
Sad enough but I think, that is what you deserve.
the warm wind plays a melody because i can’t let go.

Keine Liebe, dein Blick ist so viel leerer als dein Herz.
Bist der Grund für das Misstrauen. Bist der Grund für das alles.
Keine Liebe, dein Blick ist so viel leerer als dein Herz.
Bist der Grund für das Misstrauen. Bist der Grund für das alles.

The jauntiness that you portrait makes you who you are.
The stories you told, are ripped out pages of what really happened.
You are going to live alone, you are going to die alone.
You are going to live alone, you are going to die alone.
You are going to think about what you could have done.
You are going to think about that moment, I was gone.
Track Name: Anxiety
Quote: I dont like people much, and they dont much like me. (A Beautiful Mind)

My heart follows thin lines between anger and regrets.
I can’t find a single reason to fulfill desires of everyone around me.
We all want to be remembered by someone.
The more we try, the more we fail.
My youth seems to fade away and I feel like I’m fading with it.
And my heart keeps beating but I am not able to feel it.
And you could go ahead, telling me, the things I already know.
And I would pretend that your words aren’t meaningless to me.
I have no excuses for what I’ve done and I have no respect for anyone.
I have no excuses for what I’ve done and I have no respect for anyone anymore.
Love is a fucking knife and you stabbed me in the back.
I’ve never been happy enough to forget what happened before.
You took my self-confidence. I am all alone but you’re inside my head.
Blood runs from my eyes, I try to cover it up, but it keeps getting its way.
It keeps getting its way.
Track Name: The Curtain Fell
Sadness keeps killing me.
We tried to keep alive, something that died long before:
Every illusion that kept us together, every promise that made us forget.
“Nothing gold can stay” and people never stop leaving.
I already know what it feels like when my heart stops beating.
What I’ve learned from this: no place seems far enough from you.
I think about my favorite colours but they will never cover anything.
You still wreck me and my fucking mind. I don’t have any place to stay. Your silhouette is all I see. I am on my own. It’s in the way you looked at me ‘cause nothing replaces your smile. Now, I crossed your face: memories no more! And I thought it would make a difference but I am weak and I feel the need to share with you.
My hands still shiver, like in that moment that we first kissed,
now that we part ways: there’s so much left to say, so many thoughts to carry, but I am helpless. My lips can’t move and my mouth is shut.
It’s just a memory that slowly fades away and my breath still writes letters in the air. I miss you and I can’t get over you. The curtain fell, for everyone to see, we faced the distance between us but the audience left.
Track Name: Time
You and I, we can’t keep making the same mistakes over and over. I know I let you down when you thought, I couldn’t hurt you anymore but it wasn’t something that I’ve planned or something I did on purpose. That’s just my path and I keep moving on. Remember when you said: you need to think about everything I’ve done to you? All the things I’ve done to you. What’s the fucking point of it, now?

Did you ever just fell asleep because you couldn’t take your own way of thinking? Did you ever try to reconstruct the things that run through your head during the moments, you spent with me? I know you didn’t. And that’s why everything was meant to fail, everything that we’ve built up through the last years.

I spent so much time, to keep me from drowning deeper into that hole, you’ve kept digging. It’s tearing me apart, that I’ve lost you in my life and I need to remove you from my mind to release me from the pain. Memories find their own way into my head, they haunt me in my sleep and there’s someone who’s talking to me. It’s the sound I feared the most, but I don’t question you anymore.

The things I’ve learned from you helped me to get over everything that time couldn’t heal. Now you’re just a ghost like everbody else around me. You’ve become something that I can’t hold onto anymore. I cut my hands off to resist the need to feel your breath on my fingers. You will never know what your love meant to me because you never listened, anyway.
