The Answer 04:07
No matter what’s the question I know the answer The answer is love The answer is love No matter what we’re saying Despite the games we’re playing All we want is love And all we need is love And if I ever did hurt you You know It was just cause I loved you And I know It doesn’t make any sense but sometimes It just doesn’t make sense and all I can do is try to accept that Yeah, I just try to accept that No matter where you find yourself No matter where you’re flying I’ll be right behind Yeah, I’ll be right behind And when the road gets crooked we’ll take it step by step We’ll take it breath by breath We’ll take it breath by breath And if I ever did hurt you You know It was just cause I loved you And I know It doesn’t make any sense but sometimes It doesn’t make any sense And all I can do is try to accept that Yeah, I’m just trying to accept that

Another Useless Love Song When I’m by your side My heart takes flight, oh yeah And I sleep on your shoulder The dream might be over, it’s alright Another lazy morning In the countryside Another useless love song About you and I Oh yeah And if we have no future Waiting is useless, I guess But with no expectations There’s less of a weight on our backs Another crazy moment Kissing on your couch And I see all these moments When I close my eyes Oh yeah Day slowly turning Into lukewarm night Going down to the ocean Just you and I Another conversation About our life Another useless love song About you and I Oh yeah

How can I love you when you only turn away? How can we change if we don’t want to change? If you want love you must dare to be afraid And there’s one thing I’ve been dying to say Open up your heart You can’t win if you keep playing it safe You’ll never heal if you never dare to break It feels just like we’re standing on the ledge Longing to swim but too afraid to jump in Open up your heart I know that you been hurt a couple of times And that you’ve taught your heart how to survive But there is love to be given and received There is love if you only let me in Open up your heart

Spit out your gum And stick your tongue into a stranger’s mouth And don’t be cute You know the truth will always find its way out And you can cry because you’re crumbling But don’t you stop because you’re stumbling now You’re no one’s slave Don’t walk around as if you had no choice You decide You don’t have to hear your inner voice Unless you do because it’s howling I know the sound can be astounding now And you can’t run and you can’t hide when The noise reaches your ear drum now And oh you know you might hurt yourself if you try so you say you might wait just a little while and meanwhile You had it Lost it Picked it up and threw it away You can be wild And open up for us to touch your soul Or chicken out And change the subject just to get control And you can hurt me just by smiling Imagine if I’d see you crying now I know you say you need your distance But can’t you tell all that you’re missing now? And oh, you know you might hurt yourself if you try so you say you might wait just a little while And you just go round and round and meanwhile You had it Lost it Picked it up and threw it away Your broken heart I hope you know you did it to yourself (Sure) We played along But all you needed was a little help And you can cry because you’re crumbling But don’t you stop because you’re stumbling now And you’re still waiting for your moment But there no such thing as perfect timing, no But oh, you know you might hurt yourself if you try So you say you might wait just a little while but you’ve been hurting all your life and meanwhile You had it Lost it Picked it up and threw it away

High on You 04:46
I am high on you You go low on me Said we would keep it discrete Guess we don’t quite succeed cause everybody here knows That when we leave We’re not going home To get some sleep And your kisses taste like cherry On our way back home I’m gonna ask you to marry me And you’re gonna say no And when I ask you why, you gonna reply ”Well, you know as well as I, because you’re drunk” Oh, I don’t want to know what’s next I just want to know what’s left And I want to have control We could try to reach A little clarity Or we could get undressed Do what we do best Cause there are things in my head That I can’t express In any other way than with my hands Oh, do you want to know what’s next? Don’t you want to know what left? Well, if you want to have control You can have it Cause my eyes keep looking at you We’ve got time still, thinking this through But I don’t want to be alright I don’t want to be alright I just want you Oh, I don’t want to know what’s next I just want to know what’s left And I don’t need no control You can have it Cause my mind got stuck in a loop and there’s really not much I can do But I don’t need to be alright I don’t want to be alright Cause My eyes keep staring at you And we’ve got time still, thinking this through But I don’t want to be alright I don’t want to be alright I just want you

No Money 03:36
We’re not young but we are free And when your eyes are looking at me Well, I believe them Even though I shouldn’t Yeah, I believe you Though I know you’re lying We were dancing in the street Yeah, we were dancing for a week With no money Well, I was stupid to believe You would stick around with me But I liked it as long as it lasted Yeah, I liked it, as long as it lasted There was this place I’d never seen So we went there, just you and me With no money
7.
Tear to Open 04:48
You’ve got me shaking in my boots And I guess you know I’m a coward under cover But I could never hide away with you Not even tears in the rain You know me well enough to know that I’m a danger to myself And anybody who gets close to me as well But still You get closer to me every day now You get closer to me in every way now And I get closer to you even when I try to pull away now I want you to stay now You’ve got me thinking maybe breaking wouldn’t be that bad Tear to open, cause I’m not broken You’ve got me hanging on and even making plans It isn’t like me but I like it You saw that all I needed was a little force to get going so, you gave me some of yours and look at us now, we’re rolling Forever in motion And I get closer to you every day now I get closer to you in every way now You get closer to me even when you try to run away now You want me to stay now And I get closer to you every day now I get closer to you in every way now I get closer to you even When I try to pull away now When I feel afraid and ashamed now And there’ll be no more running away now I’m gonna stay now
8.
The Days 03:09
I like it best when we do nothing at all Lying on your bed or making love on your floor I like it when you’re just a little bit mean It stops my thinking and it’s making me feel And I want to feel cause I know thinking never got me nowhere Oh no, the only thing it ever did was making a mess And I could sleep through the first days of spring Cause what’s the use if you can’t feel anything? If we don’t want to, we don’t have to go out We could stay in and watch the Days of our Lives Go by as we pretend that the right time will come or why not try the sweet sensation of just giving up And maybe cry a little after, baby, I would like that Cause compared to feeling nothing it feels great to be sad I can’t say what is truly real Or tell you why I feel the way that I feel But I know I used to have you only in dreams And now you’re lying here right next to me And I could lie a little longer without falling asleep And I could try a little less and maybe I will succeed Or maybe this is what it is and it won’t ever change And maybe I can’t take it, or maybe it is OK with me Maybe it’s OK with me
9.
My Ugly Side 03:32
I want to tell you all my secrets Cause I believe you’d keep them I want to show you every weakness Cause I don’t think you’d like me less And when the morning turns into day And we’re lying awake naked and pale I will let you see my ugly side And I will let you into my life I want you to be angry with me I want you to be mean I want to break you just to make you open up in front of me And when the morning turns into day And we’re lying awake naked and pale I will let you see my ugly side And I will let you into my life Into my life I want to tell you all my secrets Cause I believe you’d keep them
10.
Moments 03:57
I could try for ages And I would fail each time for you I would push my limits And I would break myself just for… All the moments The little moments All the moments The holy moments All the moments The little moments All the moments That we share I could hide in memories Where I know I’m in control, no Cause I can’t trust my senses But I would risk it all just for… All the moments The little moments All the moments The holy moments All the moments The little moments All the moments That we share All the moments The little moments All the moments The holy moments All the moments The little moments All the moments That we share They are so rare I guess I need my distance To see what I’m missing out on But I know I’m trying And I would risk it all just for…

When did your apartment become so uncrowded? When did temperature start dropping like a comet? Well, I remember that your friends came over But I don’t remember when they left And I remember that we said it’s over But I can’t recall why at all When did my heart change? When did my heart change? When did my heart change? Or was it always this way? When did we run out of all that patience? We had in the beginning, when we thought we could take on anything Well, I remember that you bought me flowers But I don’t remember giving them water And I remember that I told you I love you But I don’t remember what you replied When did your heart change? When did you heart change? When did you heart change? Or was it always this way? You used to feel so good in my presence But I guess doubt can be contagious And by now I should have learned my lesson Nothing lasts and everything changes But can’t help but wonder No, I can’t help but wonder How can a heart change? How can a heart change? And why is it always this way?
12.
All I need is one final dance To memorize the touch of your hands And don’t you worry, it’s not another metaphor Or my way of asking for a second chance No, all I want is to hold you close Just until the lights come on And then I’ll be on my way Never bother you again Just let it fade away Like it never happened at all Cause all I see is filtered through This golden image of me and you At our best But we had our moments Yeah, some days we spend Really were golden But now it’s time to leave all that I didn’t come here to mess with the past I just wanted to dance And to hold you close One last time Before I let you go I will let you go I will let you go Just let me let you go
