Track Name: Ghosts
Do you believe in ghosts?
Do you believe in me?
Because i remember everything that you said to me

Do you believe in hope?
Do you believe in dreams?
Because i remember everything that you did to me

Oh, i can't Believe that you didn't see it coming, from a mile away

Do you believe in faith?
Do you believe in grace?
Because i remember all the tricks that we used to play

Do you believe in love?
Do you believe in fate?
Because i remember the promises that i made

Oh i can't believe that you didn't see me coming from a mile away

We are we are ghosts
Walking through walls
Hand in hand
Turn your back to the past
Track Name: Promise
What a mess we made
And we're both to blame
That´s the price we pay
I wouldn´t change a thing

A soliloquy
That i still uphold
A broken record they would say

I'm clearly lost
In the words you claimed
Always a second too late

A winter spent embraced
Our hungry hearts collide
Until the embers fall
I'm caught in our demise

I promise I'll never
Forget the way you made me feel
I promise, i'll always,
Be your favorite castaway

Is this the only way
That our fates could take?
An arrogant,
display of something new

Serendipity
Even bittersweet
Our moment never seemed to be

In a crowded room
There was only you,
The stunning girl, with a horseshoe tattoo

A sinner and a saint
Could've been a queen
Now forever's gone
I sought hope in your eyes

I promise I'll never
Forget the way you made me feel
I promise, i'll always,
Be your favorite castaway

I promise I'll never
Forget the way you made me feel
I promise, i'll always,
Be your favorite castaway

This could´ve been perfect
We could´ve been perfect
We, we fell, we fell apart
But now it´s too late
Track Name: Car Crash
Futures, all gone in a car crash
The love you had, all gone in a moment
The life you lived, flashing before your eyes
All your hopes, all lost with a heartbeat
Regret, all that went wrong

Reach out, save me
For the last time, save me

Futures, all lost in a car crash
The lies you told, now you wanna take them back
Could it, all have worked out?
Too late, there's no turning back
No divine intervention, to make it all alright

Reach out, save me
For the last time, save me
Track Name: Desire
Wrap your arms around me
Tighten your grip and hold on to me
Whisper in my ear
How you want me
Tell me you need me
While you're biting your lip and you look into my eyes
I'm weak in the knees and i melt with
Desire

Wrap your legs around me
I'll take you higher and higher
I'll leave you shivering and shaking
Can't resist the urge to go again, we'll go again
Oh this is heaven
You drive me wild you drive me crazy
You're weak in the knees and you burn with
Desire

Wrap yourself around me
Come in close and lean into me
Listen to my heart beat
We are one, we are here and now
Feel the warmth of your body
The taste of your kiss, still lingers on my lips
We're weak in the knees and we burn with
Desire
Track Name: Face First
I fall face first from all the sexual tension
I'm trying not to breakdown, but the booze is like a fuse
You see i've got this crush, a chemical reaction
tearing me apart
i swear it's an art, all the different ways
you got me wrapped around your finger
This love is war, it was promising
But then was left for dead

All i ever wanted was to give you everything
To show you what this love could bring

I fall face first from your intentions
You better sit down, cuz i got news for you,
you say dont rush, but your actions
Speak louder than words
How dare you say what your heart
Is telling you to do
Only to go back on your promises
That were left unsaid

All i ever wanted was everything
To be your best mistake, to leave you wondering

All i ever wanted was every little thing
To be your worst mistake, to keep these dreams awake
All i ever wanted was to be your everything
To heal the suffering, and feel it all again
Track Name: I Know How This Story Ends
I heard a story
I saw it unfold
I knew the end
Before it was told
How many times
Will the curtain fall
Before the encore
Take a bow
You've done it now
Accept the applauding crowd

Burn the future, blur the lines
I'm finally home, i'm taking flight
Contradict the rhetoric
Of the night before, you won't remember it

So now the end
Is in sight,
A final chapter,
A fading light,
How many times,
Will you haunt my dreams
A ghost, an echo
One last word
Will never suffice
We'll Dissappear into the night

Burn the future, blur the lines
I'm finally home, i'm taking flight
Contradict the rhetoric
Of the night before, you won't remember it
