Track Name: Kryptonite
You are my Kryptonite and no matter how much
I love someone else it will always be a different love
If you'd ever come back I would leave everything behind
You are my Kryptonite and no matter how much

You are my Kryptonite and no matter how far away
You are my weakness and no matter how strong I think I am
You will stay my Kryptonite
Maybe one day the pain will end I can stop pretending

And someone else becomes my Kryptonite -
And someone else becomes my Kryptonite

You are my Kryptonite and no matter how much
I love someone else it will always be a different love
Track Name: Devil with the dreadful smile
You are the devil with the dreadful smile
All your words combine to the psychopathic you

You are the devil with the honest eyes
all your lies reflect in your misleading charm

Oh my Oh my - Devil with the dreadful smile
Oh my Oh my - Devil with the dreadful smile

You are the devil with the frozen heart
All your angry screams rejected by the truthful lover

Oh my Oh my - Devil with the dreadful smile
Oh my Oh my - Devil with the dreadful smile

Oh my Oh my - Devil with the dreadful smile
Oh my Oh my - Devil with the dreadful smile

Oh my Oh my - Devil with the dreadful smile
Oh my Oh my - Devil with the dreadful smile
Track Name: Starlight
I am an absent minded dreamer
with hopes set up high
I am a fragiley strong fighter
Trying to make my way up to die

I am a passionate loving carer
trying to fight for what is right
I am a normally quiet loud thinker
trying to fight for what you despise

I'm as far as I could be to reach the sky
I'm as far as I could be to finally shine
I'm not like you bright as light
And I'm not sure if I'm strong enough to keep on trying

I am an absent minded dreamer
with hopes set up high
I am a fragiley strong fighter
Trying to fight for what you despise

Whenever I take a step closer we collide
Whenever I try to shine you steal my light
I can't be myself as long as I keep on fighting
To keep up with your starlight not even trying

I'm as far as I could be to reach the sky
I'm as far as I could be to finally shine
I'm not like you bright as light
And I'm not sure if I'm strong enough to keep on trying

I'm as far as I could be to reach the sky
I'm as far as I could be to finally shine
I'm not like you bright as light
And I hope that I'm strong enough to keep on trying
Track Name: This Mess
You and me we're still young
it lasted not long - now it's gone
It was over before it begun
No wonder you always had one hand on a gun
And I was hoping for a better time to come
But you never really wanted me that's why you ran

I was lost back then but you didn't even try to understand
then you wrote goodbye not even telling me why,why,why
And I really loved you yes, I did
But you just left me standing here - in this mess

You had always been the kind of guy
that never tried to reach out for the sky
though you haven't been that nice
I tried to apologize your faults for my pride
Hope that it would make sense some time
While you stood there making me cry


I was lost back then but you didn't even try to understand
then you wrote goodbye not even telling me why,why,why
And I really loved you yes, I did
But you just left me standing here - in this mess
In this mess
Track Name: Let me go
Fight little knight fight
for me until you lose the sky
Cry little baby cry
until you start to realize

I love you dear and this you know
but I have to let you go Oh no no

Sing little angel sing
Until the worried crowd is quiet again
Hope little fragile hope
Until your hear is filled with doubt again

I love you dear and this you know
but I have to let you go Oh no no

Fly little bird fly
Until your wings can carry you again
Die little heart die
Until your one love finds it's way back in

I love you dear and this you know
but I have to let you go
I love you dear and this you know
but I have to let you go
I love you dear and this you know
but you will let me go
Track Name: Part of me
Obviously all these feelings have been lingering inside
You must have known it for a longer while
I know that you said you were bad with timing all along
But you left me feeling used and like the stupid one

This doesn't need to be goodbye is what you said
I wish it didn't have to be
But you made it impossible being such a dick

I don't wanna be the one on the ground
I don't wanna be the one screaming out
I don't wanna be the one to take my distance
And pretend you have never been a part of it
A part of me 4x

I wish I wouldn't have waisted all this energy
All these hopes and dreams of what could have been
But in the end it's good to fall sometimes
To get even higher - hopefully

This doesn't need to be goodbye is what you said
I wish it didn't have to be
But you made it impossible being such a dick

I don't wanna be the one on the ground
I don't wanna be the one screaming out
I don't wanna be the one to take my distance
And pretend you have never been a part of it
A part of me 4x

This doesn't need to be goodbye is what you said
I wish it didn't have to be
But you made it impossible being such a dick

I don't wanna be the one on the ground
I don't wanna be the one screaming out
I don't wanna be the one to take my distance
And pretend you have never been a part of it
A part of me 8x
Track Name: After all this time
So much time has passed and I can't tell you how much
I wished for all my feelings to have disappeared
But I couldn't tell until I have seen you with my eyes
Seen you standing right in front of me

But now I'm not as sure anymore
why can't my feelings pass
After all this time
my heart still wants you the same
After all this time
my heart still wants you the same 3x

After all this time many months of traveling and life
I didn't take much time to think back and
went on with my life much better than before
And I didn't miss you most of the time - most of the time


But now I'm not as sure anymore
why can't my feelings pass
After all this time
my heart still wants you the same
After all this time
my heart still wants you the same 3x
Track Name: My Heart
As cold as my heart lays in this endless depth
as bad as my heart fails to cut you out again
as long as my heart bails on hating you as you as it should
as strong as my heart feels about the love you took

My heart screams at you to love again
My heart screams at you to understand

As low as my heart has sunk in letting you use me
as small as my heart has shrunk longing for your heart
as far as my heart would go in getting you back in
as far as my heart has come after everything you have done

My heart screams at you to love again
My heart screams at you to understand

My heart screams at you to love again
My heart screams at you to understand
Track Name: Hope
I know that hard times will come to an end
Now that I've met you
I know that it seems to be so easy right now
But trouble always finds a way back

How can love be enough
You know it's always hard when times get rough
But let me tell you that I do believe in us
And I hope this is enough

Because
Hope is all I've got 4x

I remember the first time I've seen you
For you I wasn't trouble when I walked in
I remember you were sitting on a couch
Waiting for something to begin

How can love be enough
You know it's always hard when times get rough
But let me tell you that I do believe in us
And I hope this is enough

Because
Hope is all I've got 4x

Now I know that love is enough
You know that it could get hard when times get rough
But let me tell you that I do believe in us
And I know that this could be enough

Because
Hope is all I've got 4x
Track Name: Take me back
I am hopelessly lost
In a world that tossed me away
I am scared of what
My old me would say

So please take me back to the time when everything was right
So please take me back to the time when everything was right

I am licking the wounds
That you have set
Soon the scars in my memory
Are the only things left

So please take me back to the time when everything was right
So please take me back to the time when everything was right

Whenever I try to climb back up
I lose my ground
Whenever I try to take a step
I fall back down

So please take me back to the time when everything was right 4x
Track Name: Left Alone
Summer's past and you are gone too
Left me like the summer breeze
Though you were hard to hold on to
I thought you and me were meant to be

Now I have to take my pride and let you go
'cause you want to be left alone

Winter's coming back but you are not
let my heart to freeze again
Love is never enough
when a hungry beast is willing to bring up all of your fears

Now I have to take my pride and let you go
'cause you want to be left alone 4x
Track Name: Please Say
I'm tired of feeling asleep
And I'm tired of counting sheep
I don't want to go
But it's not always that easy for me

So please say that I have to go
Please say that I was wrong
Please say that you are the only one for me
Please say that you love me

I'm hiding up above
And I'm trying to figure out
Why you and me
Are not as happy as we should be

So please say that I have to go
Please say that I was wrong
Please say that you are the only one for me
Please say that you love me

What is it like to know how I should be
What is it like to become clear 'bout you and me you and me

So please say that I have to go
Please say that I was wrong
Please say that you are the only one for me
Please say that you love me
Track Name: Forever Alone
The time we first really felt the world
Under the purple colored tree
And I miss you like the air in my lungs
I need you to breath oh no

Trying to get rid of the though that we were meant to be
Together - forever alone 2x

I want stop breathing
I want to stop wanting you here
Trying to stop myself bursting into tears
My head feels weird
I don't know who to be if we can't be near

Trying to get rid of the though that we were meant to be
Together - forever alone 2x
Track Name: I don't know
Walking the streets
All the things are wrapped in golden lights
Talking bout things no one seems to understand

What is life and why is it so weird sometimes
I don't know 2x
I don't know why I am here

Can't forget the look on your face
When you left me alone
Alone - I am alone here

And why can't be everything the way it was meant to be
And if you could see how beautiful I am tonight

I don't know I don't know

What is life and why is it so weird sometimes
I don't know 2x
I don't know why I am here
I don't know 3x
