PLAY FOR TODAY
It's not a case of doing what's right It's just the way I feel that matters Tell me I'm wrong I don't really care It's not a case of share and share alike I take what I require I don't understand... You say it's not fair You expect me to act Like a lover Consider my moves And deserve the reward To hold you in my arms And wait... For something to happen It's not a case of telling the truth Some lines just fit the situation You call me a liar You would anyway It's not a case of aiming to please You know you're always crying It's just your part In the play for today
Secrets Share with another girl Talking all night in a room All night Everything slowing down I wish I was yours... Strangers Nobody knows we love I catch your eyes in the dark One look relives the memory Remember me The way I used to be
IN YOUR HOUSE
I play at night in your house I live another life Pretending to swim In your house I change the time in your house The hours I take Go so slow... I hear no sound in your house Silence In the empty rooms I drown at night in your house Pretending to swim...
Enough of that "Stand up straight" What nonsence And I scream...
THE FINAL SOUND
-- intrumental --
Come closer and see See into the trees Find the girl While you can Come closer and see See into the dark Just follow your eyes Just follow your eyes I hear her voice Calling my name The sound is deep In the dark I hear her voice And start to run Into the trees Into the trees Into the trees Suddenly I stop But I know it's too late I'm lost in a forest All alone The girl was never there It's always the same I'm running towards nothing Again and again and again...
Hello image Sing me a line from your favourite song Twist and turn But you're trapped in the light All the directions were wrong You'll fall in love with somebody else Tonight Help yourself But tell me the words Before you fade away You reveal all the secrets To remember the end And escape someday You'll fall in love with somebody else Again tonight Take a step You move in time But it's always back... The reasons are clear Your face is drawn And ready for the next attack
Sunk deep in the night I sink in the night Standing alone underneath the sky I feel the chill of ice On my face I watch the hours go by The hours go by... You sleep Sleep in a safe bed Curled and protected Protected from sight Under a safe roof Deep in your house Unaware of the changes at night At night I hear the darkness breathe I sense the quiet despair Listen to the silence At night Someone has to be there Someone has to be there Someone must be there
Time slips away And the light begins to fade And everything is quiet now Feeling is gone And the picture disappears And everything is cold now The dream had to end The wish never came true And the girl Starts to sing Seventeen seconds A measure of life Seventeen seconds
