FRIENDLY FIRE

VERSE I.

There is a state of mind
Where nothing is forever
It all comes easily
Anything can go wrong

There is a state of mind
Where everything seems better
Although it is the same
It’s what you want to see

PRECHORUS.

So i won’t let it wait for another day
I’m going down in flames anyway
Don’t want to change my mind, it’s already made
Do or die

CHORUS.

I don’t want to be caught in friendly fire
I don’t want to be caught in my own ways

VERSE II.

There is a place I know
Where time is just a fiction
It doesn’t choose a side
It never catches up

There is a place I go
where nothing really matters
And shadows never fall
If you’re not looking back

BRIDGE.

And after all the battles fought
and pieces falling into place
The stepping stones that brought me down
Are the ones I set myself

END UP HERE

VERSE I.

I don’t want to fight about it
I don’t want to fight no more
I don’t want to see the look on your face
When you’re calling me out

I don’t want to loose what we had
I don’t want to act like this
I don’t want to have that look on my face
When we get carried away

CHORUS.

We’ve been here a thousand times
Stuck in rewind
How did we end up here
How did we end up here again
We lost our minds
everytime
How did we end up here
How did we end up here again

VERSE II.

I don’t want to talk about it
I don’t want to shout no more
I don’t want to hear the words that you say
When you’re calling me out

I don’t want to be reminded
I know I have to blame myself
I don’t want to feel this way
all over again

BRIDGE.

Our love could be so easy
When did we drift apart
And darling please believe me
I want to make this work

NO WAY TO SAVE IT

VERSE I.

I tried to change, but I couldn’t fake it
I gave you space, but you wouldn’t take it
You dress it up, but I’m feeling naked
And it’s so hard to face that
there’s no way to save it

I set the pace, but you overtake it
The more you push me, the more I hate it
The more you fix it, the more you break it
And it’s so hard to face that
there’s no way to save it

CHORUS.

I’m looking for some proof of life
Something to show me that it’s worth my time
I keep on reaching for vital signs
Some indication that we won’t flatline

VERSE II.

When we’re silent, we demonstrate it
And when we talk, we just complicate it
You made it clear when you hestitated
And it’s so hard to trace it,
cause we can’t remake it

There’s no way that i could mistake it
I threw you hope but you didn’t chase it
I drew a lifeline but you erased it
And it’s so hard to trace it,
cause we can’t remake it

TWO STEPS BACK

VERSE I.

Is it me, or is my mind playing tricks again
Am I sinking, or just diving in
Is this the first time, or have I been here before
Did I loose it, or just give in

PRECHORUS.

I got to hold on for a minute
Is there a meaning to it
One step forward, two steps back
I got to push through to the limit
Is there something in it
One step forward, two steps back

VERSE II.

Is it me, or is mind stuck in retrograde
Am I moving, or standing still
Can’t I see the moments that are passing by
Am I blind, or did I loose my point of view

SAY IT

VERSE I.

I never thought that simple words
could mean that much to me
I never thought that you would be the one
I want to hear them from
I never thought that simple words
could mean that much to me
I never thought that you would be the one

CHORUS.

So tell me why won’t you say it
Cause I just need to know
I don’t why you would hide it
It’s your hesitation that wrecks me from inside

VERSE II.

And when I feel the way you touch my hands
The way you touch my lips
I know for sure that this is something new
I haven’t known before
And when I feel the way you touch my hands
The way you kiss
I know for sure that you must be the one

BRIDGE.

Why won’t you say it
Cause I need to know
Why would you hide it
It’s your hesitation

BURN

VERSE I.

I caught your spark
It lit me up, so I can see
Burning bright, no pain
Nothing’s gonna be the same

Everytime I’m searching
I can see your glow
Leading my way home

CHORUS.

Give me some air to burn
Cause we are the flames you can’t control
I know, you know we’ll always be there
The heat, the light we share
Give me some air to burn

VERSE II.

You are my guide
Take me to a higher place
Looking down from up above
Embers of what went wrong

Now that I am wiser
I won’t do it again
I’m not turning back

MASQUERADE

VERSE I.

What is on your mind
You’ve got something to say
Then get it out
What are you hiding from me
I want to see inside
Get it out

PRECHORUS.

I want to hear what you got to say
Come on, drop your masquerade
I’m tired of always chasing you
Don’t know what I can do
I want to hear what you got to say
Come on, drop your masquerade
I want to be your hideaway
Don’t know what I can do

VERSE II.

What has become of us
I don’t know what’s gone wrong
Get it out
Is this how you want it to be
Cause I can’t tell anymore
Get it out

DROWNING

VERSE I.

I tried to bring you with me
But you know I’d never beg
I’m breaking it out of here
I took my leaf out of your book

I’ve heard them speaking of you
Before you even crossed my path
I’ve heard you answering to
All of the questions that I’ve never asked

CHORUS.

Are we waving, are we drowning
Are we changing, are we doubting

VERSE II.

Believe the lines that you said
But this wound will always stay
I think it might be too late
I can see you slip away

If it’s true we’re the lucky ones
Why hide in shadows of the past
These words upon my tongue
So true, but never meant to last

BACK TO SHORE

VERSE I.

I’m in open water
I can see no borders
I’m going with the tides
Nothing here to guide my way

CHORUS.

Take me back to shore
This time I won’t let go
Before I drift too far
Take me back to shore

Give me a reason to hold on

VERSE II.

I’m in open water
Tides are getting stronger
So easy to release now
It goes so fast from blue to black

TREADING WATER

VERSE I.

You can’t hide it, it’s all lit up
Don’t fight it, there’s no sense in playing tough
I hear your heartbeat breaking the silence
Don’t make me stand here out on the sideline

PRECHORUS.

I know your mind was all made up
But I can see you treading water
Looking away won’t be enough
I know it’s easy for me to say

VERSE 2.

You can’t hide it, It’s all lit up
I tried it, my helping hand you couldn’t touch
I see you drifting, lost in the riptide
Don’t make me watch you, drop by the wayside

THE CRASH

VERSE I.

They say we should play by the rules
What if they are broken
Better to be their blinded fools
Then keep your eyes closed

Every turn I took
Every move I made
It was all laid out
Didn’t see the signs
On that rainy night
And then you hit my side

PRECHORUS.

And now the best made plans I had
Are scattered out into the air
And if I ever had the chance to rewind
I would do it all again

CHORUS.

I would do it again
And I won’t lie that I’ve been scared of you
I would do it again, I would do it again
You shook up everything I knew

VERSE II

they say we are one and the same
if only they could see me
better to break from shattered frames
than drown like whispers in the crowd

COME CLOSE

VERSE I.

Let go of your last doubts
Stay here day in day out
Come close
Let loose

And even if you asked
I can’t erase my past, but
Come close
Let loose

VERSE II.

Afraid of getting tied up
No reason that you fight it
Come close
Let loose

Trust me you won’t get hurt
I love you more than words
Come close
Let loose

BRIDGE.

You and I could last forever
If we escape the devil’s wheel

I need your air in my lungs
I need your breath on my skin
Give me your words to calm down
You got me caught in a spin
