Track Name: The Shape of Dreams to Come
You're the shape of dreams to come
You fill my head when I'm undone
"You mean so much to me"
But when I look in your eyes, that is not what I see
Still, you made your way into my heart

"Lover, you should come over
You can put your trust in me"
Her words lay under covers
But why shouldn't I believe?

I'm exiled, can't you see?
Shamelessly thrown at your feet
So subtle were the signs leading to the end
So sudden was the farewell
My eyes were red until the dawn
And every night I hear the sound

Fire reaching for your head
Things don't go as you'd expect
First subtle as the signs to end an illusion
Then suddenly, a farewell
Do you still dream of going away?
Burn all that makes you stay

"You should come over"
A new layer has covered me
Our hearts, they still beat sour
Oh, rush, and get away from me

Is this an unexpected happy ending? Or is it too late?
Back then, well, I was thinking that I knew your ways
Farewell, all hopes and dreams... (am I to blame?)
I can't turn my back again, but I cannot stay

I swallow a thousand lights of a thousand flames
And there's no time for my regrets, I end this game

The words repeating in my head are as clear as rain
"You cannot hurt me when I'm gone, you won't be the same"
These words still ringing in my head are not that tame
"We cannot kill when we're all dead, we'll die the same"
Track Name: Oceans Upon Oceans
Don't feel this bad
This is not the first time
That two fitting lines
Just did not rhyme

The decision is yours to make
Don't give a shit about what they say
There's no them
There's just us
And the rest
Are just oceans upon oceans

What did we learn today?
We ought to think what we say
We ought to say what we feel
Let this be our deal

I told a lie so many times
It now rings true
No matter where I go
I'm always coming back to you

I've been through this before
It's nothing new
But how much I care for you
Is what I wish you knew

I can't deal with what you feel
There are hopes I've yet to kill
The feelings you keep
Never set in motion
Were hiding deep
Under oceans upon oceans

What did we learn today?
We ought to think what we say
We ought to say what we feel
Let this be our deal

You've set on me, but I let you down
I scream at mirrors, locked inside my house
It's not the first time, it's not the last
Maybe you're right and I'm like the rest
Barriers I've built myself
And I can't jump without your help
Time goes forwards, can't it go back?
I'll blend the future with the past
Track Name: Hesitation
I can't get a night of sleep
You've made a home of me
I wish I was somewhere else
But I'm here

A lifetime spent inside a shell
So many things that I wish
One step forwards, my whole life back
Getting it started from the past

You sang me a melody
Stolen from an older song
You wouldn't listen to me
When I asked you to leave me alone

Sometimes we're both wrong
I'm almost never right
Piling song upon song
Until I feel alright

I feel stuck in space and time
And lose touch with all I love
Words fail me, as I expect them to
But trust me
I'll get over you

You sang me a melody
Stolen from an older song
You wouldn't listen to me
When I asked you to leave me alone

I'm not asking for you
To put your trust in me
Your life, it went on
I am still stuck here

When life's changing
Do I have to change too?
Track Name: Seasounds
Home, home, sweet home
Is anywhere I won't go
"Where did he go?"
"Where the wind doesn't blow."

The sun is gone
And the last thing I need is
Another endless fight
Where do I belong?

There is a train marching on by the end of the road
A sudden call of the uncommon, is it early to go?
A sea that once raged will rage no more
A heart that once beat was beat to the core
Another lonely night will make my eyes dry off
A song for the sea when the sea is gone

Reoccuring dreams
As desolating as they seem
Words from the soul
Another "no"

Memories, a past never shared
Intoxicated screams fill the atmosphere

I had never seen so many stars
I had never been so close and yet so far
I'm sorry that it had to be this way
I'm sorry for the love I've thrown away
I'm sorry for the things we left unsaid
They're buried deep under the sea, on their own

All that happened seems so far away
But you never left my mind ever since that day
Love is boundless, but not fail proof
I gave you all the love i was able to
It flew like a breeze floating in the air
A song for the sea when the sea is
Track Name: The Art of Moving On
I want to learn something new
After all this time, it would be fitting
After all that I've been through
Something good would be more in tune

It's not her, and it's not you
I think it's time for someone new
It's not her, and it's not you
I think it's time for someone new

I'll turn pages at my own pace
and I'll panic at the sight of your face
Is it therapy or a new song
that will teach me the art of moving on?

I thought I'd grown, but I'm the same
A childish idiot calling names
Going too hard on himself
Too stubborn to talk and ask for help

"Don't go away", "leave me alone"
You can blame me, I'm on my own
"Don't go away", "leave me alone"
You can blame me, I'm on my own

"I want to be stronger, I want it now
I want you by my side when it all comes down"
The drugs I take can't make you leave
"Never again come close to me"
I want all but I get none
And still I wonder why I'm alone

Maybe by the time I'm singing this song
I'll have mastered the art of moving on
