01. Feel Alive

Music by Daniel Cardoso and Anneke Van Giersbergen
Lyrics by Anneke Van Giersbergen
I feel your heart it beats against
The side of my face
I'm holding on the memory
Of our embrace

I see your smile and I never want it to fade again

You find your way trough hide-aways
In the back of your mind
Let's hope I find the energy
I'll never deny

I feel alive, you saved my heart
I lost control
I feel alive, you saved my mind
I wanted you to know

I'm holding on the fairytale
Of our embrace

I feel alive, you saved my heart
I lost control
I feel alive, you saved my mind
I wanted you to know


02. You Want To Be Free

Music by Daniel Cardoso and Anneke Van Giersbergen
Lyrics by Anneke Van Giersbergen
Everything you say, you say it with a smile
Everything you do, but does she cares for you
Everyone you meet, sees your big ol' heart
Everyone you love, but does she loves you back

You're so in love, you hope she wants
To come and find you

I know you want to be free
Just like that guy on the TV
I know you think it's all right
But it makes no sense to me

Every foolish game, every mid-life rage
Every ounce of pain, what else is there to blame?
I only wanted you, to open up your eyes
You know however cute, she's a monster in disguise

You're so in love, you hope she wants
To come and find you

I know you want to be free
Just like that guy on the TV
I know you think it's all right
But it makes no sense to me


03. Everything Is Changing

Music by Daniel Cardoso and Anneke Van Giersbergen
Lyrics by Anneke Van Giersbergen
My eyes search like birds scanning the city
Ants race like I am in slow-motion
Where's my place?

Everything is changing
Nobody is wanting to see

Clouds fold around me like a coat keeping me cozy
I realise I have to come down
These roots they will cure me

Everything is changing
Nobody is wanting to see

False hope raises in me a dark sense of violence
Your love is worth every hour
I lay down in silence


04. Take Me Home

Music by Daniel Cardoso and Anneke Van Giersbergen
Lyrics by Anneke Van Giersbergen
God I feel, I think I should be all that I can be
Dude I like, I hope we can get together someday

Since the stars in the sky and the clouds aligned
I have realised you should

Take me home
Let me lead the way
Take me home

Fingers crossed my obsession with you is tameable
Best thing for me is to be in your grip before night fails

Since the stars in the sky and the clouds aligned
I have realised you should

So alone
Give me something kind of understanding
All alone
Give me even the slightest sedation

Take me home
Let me lead the way
Take me home


05. I Wake Up

Music by Daniel Cardoso and Anneke Van Giersbergen
Lyrics by Anneke Van Giersbergen
Frozen, older, I walk the streets alone
Further, falling, I stare into the cold

I wake up, with you next to me
I wake up, totally free
Your actions, speak louder than words
I wake up, with you next to me

Faster, closer, I run towards the light
Can you help me to leave this all behind?

I wake up, with you next to me
I wake up, totally free
Your actions, speak louder than words
I wake up, with you next to me


06. Circles

Music by René Merkelbach and Anneke Van Giersbergen
Lyrics by Anneke Van Giersbergen
My friend, an angel in disguise
We live, in a world that's full of lies
You are, always on your own
Even so

You're holding out a lifeline
You're holding on to love
You'll never give up hope

When all we do is run around in circles
And everyone is searching for the answers
You close your eyes, you're ready to start over
And again, you leave the past behind

My friend, the comfort of your home
Your hands, will sit me down and rest
You always will

Hold out a lifeline
You're holding on to love
You'll never give up hope

When all we do is run around in circles
And everyone is searching for the answers
You close your eyes, you're ready to start over
And again, and again

Keeping me warm
Even the coldest days won't scare you away
I reach for your hands
Don't you let me slip away
Just hold on to me
For one more day

When all we do is run around in circles
And everyone is searching for the answers
You close your eyes, you're ready to start over
And again, and again

You leave the past behind


07. My Boy

Music by Daniel Cardoso and Anneke Van Giersbergen
Lyrics by Anneke Van Giersbergen
My boy I loved you since you opened up your eyes
My boy the steps you take, I'm never far behind
How did you know that I was the one, perfect for the job
And how you showed the one and only truth about myself

Let the rain fall on me
'Cause underneath the sky

I'll be there, rain or shine
Even though I don't have all the answers
I would go to the end of the world for you

My boy I see your joy, I feel your doubt
But did you know that I am the one to always help you out

Let the sun shine on me
'Cause underneath the sky

I'll be there, rain or shine
Even though I don't have all the answers
I would go to the end
And even though I'm crazy for you my boy
You'll be fine, rain or shine
Even though I don't have all the answers
I would go to the end of the world for you


08. Stay

Music by Daniel Cardoso and Anneke Van Giersbergen
Lyrics by Anneke Van Giersbergen
Hey turn around I was just in the middle of a sentence
Hey you what were you thinking not to grant me the time of day

If you stay, I'll wait
But you know if I gotta go, I'm gonna take you with me

If you stay, if you stay, I will wait

I'm friend, your confidant
I'm there in times of trouble
But you take me for granted
It's time to snap out of your dream

If you stay, I'll wait
But you know if I gotta go, I'm gonna take you with me

If you stay, if you stay, I will wait

Wait up, didn't you see me?
Look up, haven't you noticed me, trying to be
Your perfect friend?

If you stay, if you stay, I will wait


09. Hope, Pray, Dance, Play

Music by René Merkelbach and Anneke Van Giersbergen
Lyrics by Anneke Van Giersbergen
Look in my eyes, you saw me here while I was gone
You know me well, you know I'd make it all along
Look in my heart
You found your way through all my tears
You made me smile
You made the dark clouds disappear

Hope for me, pray for me
One day I'll be fine
Dance with me, play with me
Never fall behind

Walk with me, I have to show you what is mine
Talk to me, I want to learn as much as I can
It must be hard
But there is just no other way
You make me smile
You make the dark clouds go away

Hope for me, pray for me
One day I'll be fine
Dance with me, play with me
Never fall behind


10. Slow Me Down

Music by Daniel Cardoso and Anneke Van Giersbergen
Lyrics by Anneke Van Giersbergen
The best is yet to come
But only if we run
The race has just begun

We seek a better life
But only if we die
We'll find the deep blue water

I can't wait, hurry up, can't take a break
Can't be late, hurry up and go
Don't you slow, slow me down boy!

You try, you live, you love, you die
You start, you wonder why
You hold on to the past
You break, you go ahead and fake
You realise there's so much more at stake
One should not wait

Be kind, be good, be smart, be true
Be bold, be loud, be you
I'll race you to the top
I honestly believe, we'll conquer this dis-ease
If only we could love

I can't wait, hurry up, can't take a break
Can't be late, hurry up and go
Don't you slow, slow me down boy!

I'll never know for sure,
what is taking me this long to learn
I'll never understand,
but it feels to me like coming home

I can't wait, hurry up, can't take a break
Can't be late, hurry up and go
Don't you slow, slow me down!


11. Too Late

Music by Daniel Cardoso and Anneke Van Giersbergen
Lyrics by Anneke Van Giersbergen
Bitter and dis-eased
Slowly you come undone
You won't take me down
The time has come to let you out

It's too late, ya made me wait
Ya might realise, ya paralyse me
Oh, it's insane you have just turned a cold shoulder

Once there was a time
You moved me, you drove me wild
Now you just bring me down
The time has come to let you out

It's too late, ya made me wait
Ya might realise, ya paralyse me
Oh, it's insane you have just turned your back to me
You're letting me go
Don't let go
Don't let me go

Fingers crossed, I got lost
I'll come home, to my own
Sanity, you have to be out
Of your mind
To let me slide

I see you go
Out the door
My heart's on the floor
While you should be gone
Ya paralyse me

It's too late, ya made me wait
Ya might realise, ya paralyse me
Oh, it's insane you have just turned a cold shoulder

Don't let go
Don't let me go


12. 1000 Miles Away From You

Music by Daniel Cardoso and Anneke Van Giersbergen
Lyrics by Anneke Van Giersbergen
Here I am
A thousand miles away from you
I understand, I will have to deal without you
In the dark, forces run me down
The end, in the corner of your eye

A thousand miles away from you
A thousand miles

Honesty is following me around
I have to do what is right
I fall down, my face against the ground

I bow down

A thousand miles away from you
I understand, I will have to deal without you
In the dark, forces run me down
The end, in the corner of your eye

I believe he'll find love
In the kindest of gods
I can see he'll find home
In the greatest of kingdoms

A thousand miles away from you

He'll find love
In the kindest of gods
