Track Name: Grow Up
Grow up young lady
Hand me your crown
It’s not coming back
It’s not coming back

Grow up poor girl
Your tears are meaningless
It’s not coming back
It’s not coming back

Grow up young wife
Though your body aches
This is your life
This is your life

You’re waiting for a rainbow
While dark clouds appear
It is not here
It is not here

You never chose to be alone
But you chose to have faith
That’s a word we only know
From our childhood days

You chose to have patience
Was it worth your precious time?
You’re still waiting here
Still waiting for a sign

So throw away your icecream
Abandon your dolls
It’s time for control
Take over control

You never chose to be alone
But you chose to have faith
That’s a word we only know
From our childhood days
Track Name: Wolf of Memphis
The wolf of Memphis
Prepares for a new day
In his home under still waters
He’s waiting for the waves

On this black sunny day
The rain is waiting to pour
On all children that play guitar
And search for...

The wolf of Memphis
Is ready for a new day
In his home under still waters
He’s waiting for his pray

On this black sunny day
The rain is waiting to pour
On all children that play guitar
And search for a whole lotta love

Until the day is done...
Track Name: Unharmed
Do I get a second chance
To try it with these bleeding hands?
I have been away too long
Water’s boiling in the kettle
While I put on my golden medal I once earned for being strong

The sky turns dark
I have no shield,
I have no shield
In the front row of this battlefield
I’m a warrior
This time I’ll come out
So, I’ll take my second chance,
And try it with these bleeding hands
I’m a warrior
This time I’ll come out
Unharmed
Track Name: Still a Daughter
The pale rain is falling,
Making circles in the water.
Hypnotising wrinkles on my face.
I'm still a daughter

Only my reflection
In still water
Reveals my true age
I'm still a daughter
Make this flesh and bones
Full of resignation
As young as
The imagination
Make this worn out body
Come to life again
Exhausted and defeated
By the almost dead
Track Name: If Only I Would Listen
So here we are
In a circle we all signed for
The smell of old beer is familiar
But now it dries our throats

The blood is rising to our heads
We have to do this quick
Before someone throws up
Before someone starts to talk about the weather

Is the sun generous enough to show up?
Is it worth to free the lingering past?
No one knows
Only I can know what’s best
Track Name: 89
My knees are bent
My feet are sore
My voice has left
You count your score

My tail is gone
My mouth is trembling
We repeat the game
Each tuesday morning

I'm too tired to walk
So you drag me along
I'm a burden but you don't seem to know

My teeth are soft
And some are broken
On rainy days
We go out in the open

My days are blurred
With faded laughter
They chose my dress
For the world hereafter

I'm too tired to walk
So you drag me along
I'm a burden but you don't seem to know
Track Name: Cowboys
I crossed a thousand flowing rivers
Defied all the raging storms
I tried to discover your voice in the wind
That tells me to come home

The seas are all yours,

I’ll take the land.

When I was sleeping on your doorstep
In the middle of a freezing night
I craved for the warmth of your fireplace
But you only threw a blanket outside

The seas are all yours,

I’ll take the land
Track Name: When She Becomes a Rose
Like a little seed
She grows big
By feeding her with affection
and fullfilling her needs

Her pristine skin
Gets touched by the sun
Her uncolored mind
Is collecting a rainbow within

When she becomes a rose
She'll tell you about love
About trust and romance
And everything that lies beyond

Carefully choosing colors
Like a painter at work
Just colors untill
A painting is born
And you can see
What she's become

When she becomes a master
She'll give you good advice
About perspective and contrast
About realistic and abstract

When she becomes a rose
She'll tell you about love
About trust and romance
And everything
You ought to know
Track Name: Goodbye
Goodbye little one
It’s been a pleasure love you
Though we’ve never met

Goodbye little one
You stepped out of this rollercoaster ride
Before our eyes could get wet

And now the salty cheeks
Discover how this feeling tastes
They have no choice but to soak up the life and surrender

Goodbye little one
We just didn’t know that you were there
But you were there

Goodbye little one
Your last breath came through someone else’s mouth

And now the salty cheeks
Discover how this feeling tastes
They have no choice but to soak up the life and surrender

Don’t go little one
There’s a place for you
Next time when you’re in the neighbourhood
Just call us and we’ll welcome you
Just call us and we’ll welcome you
Track Name: Speak
The wind is quiet tonight
It's holding it's breath, like me
Illuminated questionmarks
Is all that I can see
Speak
Don't take your time

Your soft skin feels so cold
As if you're not in there
Is there something you'd like to say?
Something you need to share?
Speak
Don't take your time

All the time I wanted you to talk to me
All the time I wanted you to see
I see your head turn to the door,
You're already gone
