Track Name: Trace In My Head
I’m so confused, I don’t know where to go from here
I don’t know what I want but I want you to be near…me
And of all the right things I could have said, I’ve said none
I know it’s not my fault but I blame myself for what I have done.

All that I have left
Is a trace in my head
And no matter how hard I struggle
I know I should just forget.
(2x)

I guess I’m overreacting but that is so hard to change
And trying to be nice will only seem really strange
I hope some time in the future there will be mending
But yes, I’m okay cause I don’t believe in happy endings.

All that I have left
Is a trace in my head
And no matter how hard I struggle
I know I should just forget.
(3x)
Track Name: The Great Perhaps
I go to seek a great perhaps
Afraid of monsters that don’t life under beds anymore
They moved to awkward situations, to the fear of making mistakes,
And live in my lurking self-doubt.

All the boy ever wanted was to be an astronaut
Paper rockets soared through his tiny room
All the people said was “Sit still and finish your homework
So that one day you might find a real job.”

I go to seek a great perhaps
Afraid of monsters that don’t life under beds anymore
They moved to awkward situations, to the fear of making mistakes,
And live in my lurking self-doubt.

And the boy never brought good grades home from school
He always thought he was not good enough
Trying to fulfill the expectations other people had
While he dreamt of being an astronaut.

I go to seek a great perhaps
Afraid of monsters that don’t life under beds anymore
They moved to awkward situations, to the fear of making mistakes,
And live in my lurking self-doubt.

When the no longer small boy at least graduated from his school
His degree was merely average
But now he knew that the only thing that really counts
Is what you expect of yourself.

No one really knows
What happened to that small boy
All that I know is this:

He went to seek his great perhaps
Also afraid of monsters that don’t live under beds anymore
And while at times his search might not be easy he will always look ahead
Cause he knows the way.

We go to seek our great perhaps
Afraid of monsters that don’t live under beds anymore
And while at times our search might not be easy we will always look ahead
Cause we know the way.

Track Name: Words You Might Never Hear
Words frighten you said and you were right
Words are but empty shells of things that can not be explained
Words frighten you said and you were right
But I have nothing but words.

And we all just try
And hope that things will be better
One day
(2x)

The loneliness in your words
Reminds me that we simply were not enough
The loneliness in your words
Makes me wish I could help.

And we all just try
And hope that things will be better
One day
(2x)

I have to be patient I know
But I‘m afraid there‘s so much left unsaid
I have to be patient I know
And there‘s nothing I could do.

But you must know
That I still want you to be my first world.
And when you‘re ready
I‘ll be there.

And I believe
Things will eventually get better
You‘ll see
And I strongly believe
Things will eventually get better
You‘ll see
Track Name: Confusing
What the hell
Am I doing here?
Seems like every song I write
Is about feeling confused…
Confused…

And maybe life will always
Remain confusing
And maybe life
Should be this way?

Ohh…


Why the hell
Am I even sad?
Nothin‘s really going wrong
But I‘m just longing for more…
For more…

And maybe life will always
Remain confusing
And maybe life
Should be this way?

Ohh…


Why the hell
Am I even sad?
Nothin‘s really going wrong
But I‘m just longing for more…
For more…
Track Name: All Is Song
Small red houses fall asleep
Window blinds all closed.
Just one of them it seems loose
It beats the rhythm of the night.

When I lie down, lie very still
I realise what remains in and out:
All is song.

Tree and wind sing lullabies
For now oh so silent birds
Dark curtains are pulled shut
And lock the bright sun from our eyes.

When I lie down, lie very still
I realise what remains in and out:
All is song.

The stars wink at the city
And whisper “It is time for bed.”
Waves of cars slowly float by
And gently rock the world to sleep.

When I lie down, lie very still
I realise what remains in and out:
All is song.
