Track Name: Nightlights
Burning in the distance
There’s a fire
It’s been going on for days

No one there to stop it
Nothing
That can hold the spreading blaze

The small view from my window
Is getting slimmer
Almost covered up in dirt

The sun is lost
behind the black smoke
Everything looks the same
The colours start to fade

I’m just Waiting for the nightlights
To count the passing time
Pushing for my sanity
Struggling to survive
Following the nightlights
Flashing far away
Moving in slow motion
Beyond a violet sky

How long 'till they’ll be here
Will they find me
What will happen when they come

The moon is lost
behind the black clouds
Everything looks the same
The colours starts to fade

I’m just Waiting for the nightlights
To count the passing time
Pushing for my sanity
Struggling to survive
Following the nightlights
Flashing far away
Moving in slow motion
Beyond a violet sky
Track Name: Coney Island
Love was flooding my eyes
In green and violet
Made a pun for your smile
So good to see you excited
Everything look smaller
From the top of the Wonder Wheel
Your rest your head on my shoulder
Looking down on cobalt sea

Coney Island down the boardwalk
Still enchanted like we just met
With our feet into the ocean
In the light of a sunset
Sky’ so clear now clouds have vanished
Being with you here is all I ask for
Like a scene from an old movie
Hand in hand along the shore

Run my hand through your hair
You lean into my embrace
I’m so calm and aware
This is our time and our place
Leave behind all your fears
We will always find our own ways
We never thought this could be
The most perfect of all days

Coney Island down the boardwalk
Still enchanted like we just met
With our feet into the ocean
In the light of a sunset
Sky’ so clear now clouds have vanished
Being with you here is all I ask for
Like a scene from an old movie
Hand in hand along the shore
Track Name: The Way We Smiled
We were driving around
In a hot summer night
In the cool streets of Milan
I loved watching you drive
With a smile on your face
And your blond curls in the air
None could tell
How broken we were
If they saw the way we smiled

We were holding on
We were holding on

I was always there for you
And you know that I’ll always do
I will always come to you

Held on to each other
In difficult times
We managed to survive
Dancing together
And singing out loud
To song that I despised
None could tell
How broken we were
If they saw the way we smiled

We were holding on
We were holding on

I was always there for you
And you know that I’ll always do
I will always come to you
Track Name: 1987
There were no more allies
The moment you stepped out the door
So perfect and unreachable

We just played to our lies
Knowing we won’t stand a chance
So way out of our league

Then I played that song to you
Glowing in sunbeams
The blooming of life
Feel the music let it through
A song for a summer
Plays for me and you

You came straight up to me
My mind was exploding
I could barely speak

In the shade of a tree
We talked about November tuesdays
And we played that tape again

Than I felt your lips on mine
All of a sudden
The blooming of my life
Feel the music let it through
A song for a summer
Plays for me and you
Track Name: The Aftermath
Its always been like this
For countless generations
Things keep moving forward
To unknown destinations

It’s a path that has been scripted
We went wrong along the way
The last words had been submitted
There’s no time to escape

White lights our hands were not the ones who fired
The price we’ll pay is far too high
I’m trying to overcome my death
Surviving through the aftermath
I don’t even know the ones to blame
I just wish you could be here again
Holding my hand
Surviving through the aftermath


We thought we saw it clear
Our destination set
We thought we knew it all
the future we will get

This is not what’s been promised
This is everything we feared
Hopes and dreams have been demolished
The world we knew has disappeared

White lights our hands were not the ones who fired
The price we’ll pay is far too high
I’m trying to overcome my death
Surviving through the aftermath
I don’t even know the ones to blame
I just wish you could be here again
Holding my hand
Surviving through the aftermath
