about

Después de maltratar muchas ideas y notas de voz durante varios meses, mi cabeza consigue catalizar una parte de la música que me gusta. Estas cuatro canciones, en conjunto, son una mezcla de estilos, quizás demasiado heterogénea. Pero esta es sólo la primera casilla, el primer movimiento.

Track Name: In my mind
I won't tell the truth
Unless you want me to
I won't say a thing
Once you've let me in

I don't care about
Mistakes that you have made
So I expect you now
to do just the same

Times like these are never coming back
Got them all stuck in my mind
I can't believe I made it out of this
My lips were sealed with our first kiss …and "goodnight"

Some things are better said than done
All locked up in my mind
Why don't we leave it just like this?
My lips are sealed since our first kiss …don't get mad

I won't tell the truth
Unless you want me to
I won't say a thing
Once you've let me in

I don't care about
Mistakes that you have made
So I expect you now
to do just the same
Track Name: No turning back
Guess I don’t know how to behave
Reasons that are hard to explain
Push myself all back to the start
Cause of years of living in lack

I’ve assumed the worst is yet to come
Will you think of me when I am gone?

What I’ve done comes back for me
I’m my own worst enemy
I know truth is not on my side
What always weighs me down is my pride

My self-esteem is nowhere to be found
If ‘failure’ were a kingdom, I’d wear the crown

There’s no turning back from here
Chances taken forever, so be it
There’s no turning back from here

Guess I don’t know how to behave
Reasons that are hard to explain
Push myself all back to the start
Cause of years of living in lack

Compromise was never for me
I don’t see where this is going
But one thing that I’m sure
For my behaviour there’s no cure

There’s no turning back from here
Chances taken, forever, so be it
There’s no turning back from here
Track Name: Winter lion
Can you see what’s outside?
Can you be brave enough
to face it once and for all?

You craved for changing
and now it’s time to act
Explore the world, but always mind your back

Gathering all your sins
Pull apart all your fears, but always hope for the best

Beware of hurting
the ones you love the most
It takes a tough move to finally break the curse

Watch out your steps in the snow
Follow the gang so you won’t be alone
Winter lion, you’re out of time
Keep this going and you’ll be fine

No one is safe, try to be bold
You’re not used to this cold, not used to this world
Hide in your mind and you’ll always feel like home
Track Name: Something good
Am I now too far, too old?
This path has led me nowhere
'Cause I ain´t nobody's clown
I'm looking up for something

Something good
Maybe love is overrated, complicated

Look at the sky
Swallow your pride
Don't expect nothing at all
Try not to cry
Feelings aside
Learn to love what is gone

Sometimes it's too hard to face
You are left with nothing
Good times never leave a trace
Still looking up for something

Something good
Maybe love is overrated, complicated

Look at the sky
Swallow your pride
Don't expect nothing at all
Try not to cry
Feelings aside
Learn to love what is gone
