Track Name: These Tears
everything's empty,
everyone's questioning me:
why the hell you're not around here?

walking back home from work,
looking behind just to see
that you're no more on my sight.

I don't want to stay home so long,
with all the stuff and the things
you made up and left down here.

Please don't you bury me
please, don't you disappear
or just wait, and let me hold your hand.

Everything's quiet,
I don't understand where to put
all these thoughts inside my head,
but I know I don't want them,
I just want to go back and be
with your smile, more than with these tears.

So please, don't you bury me
and please, don't you disappear?
or just wait, and let me hold you,
wait, and let me hold your hand.
Track Name: Not a Date
I met her on a square
she was waiting up for me
And what the night took
Was a little dream
to make it real.

We walked across the park
with the winter on our lips
and I was good to hear you
but you never started to speak.

it was not a date
it was not a deal
it was just a night
becoming day
for just one kiss

we're sitting on a bar
my coffee and your tea
and when you took your coat
I saw what no one else could see

and then outside your face
was brighter than the day
I dared to take your hand
and walked to stop
that bus that I hated

it was not a date
it was not a deal
it was just a night
becoming day
for just one kiss
Track Name: Flowers
Making distractions for passing away all the day
laying out there on the same rusted ground where we fell
need no reaction to bring all the things at the time
looking for reasons or facts that i don't realize.

Don't go away with the morning
I'm feeling so strange, without warning
forget all about and come closer
but not just to say, goodbye...

Now I am talking about all the things that you said
leaving behind all the places and all my regrets
waiting but nothing came out of your mouth that i heard
nothing to do but to keeping making mistakes.

Don't go away with the morning
I'm feeling so strange, without warning
forget all about and come closer
but not just to say, goodbye...
Track Name: Little Story
You're waiting for the morning
to have another story
and take another train to go away

been sitting on the sidewalk
can't finding any reason
just staring at the sun,
you're up to face the day

so take a little time
and put yourself a smile
remember all the places where
we used to find some light
and close your eyes...

I never told you nothing
and never saw your face again
we had to leave us there to get away

Another little story
that never had a real end
with silence in your eyes
till take that train

So take a little time
and put your better smile
remember all the places where
we used to find some light
and say goodbye...
Track Name: Losing Again
Trying to breathe I took
the long way to get disturbed
when I supposed to get calm.
every day and every step
I did was wrong
it's like a kind of bad joke.
Keep running but
my body wants to stop
I'm losing all I loved

There's a tiny rain
slow falling as I walk
and I was looking for the sun
I don't need no stumble
to get to the ground
I need a push to get up
I keep looking with my eyes
completely closed
I'm not asleep at all.

I don't gamble but I bet
everything's upside down
like me, I guess.
I don't struggle but I fight
to death with my own ghosts
and I'm losing again

I'm so sick in trying
to get it at this point
where I'm about to get old
the sort of things that you
don't want to keep at all
it's like a med for getting worse
I need to switch me off
but my brain wants to turn me on
that's going to burn my head

I don't gamble but I bet
everything's upside down
like me, I guess.
I don't struggle but I fight
to death with my own ghosts,
and I'm losing again.
Track Name: My Own Star
No one is here, no one, just me
and all that I did, is what keeps me awake.
you were a cloud, giving me dreams
now dripping rain that i'm drinking like tears

Forget about me, I'm always right here
I'm not gonna be changing anything
the most that you said, was "I'm not Ok"
while covering up half a face with your hand

watching our past like a film
the things that we already did,
and we became those who don't love anything.

now that it's done, I'm gone and I'm lost
I'm looking at the sky trying to find my own star.
Track Name: See You Again
I started to wake,
so cold and gray.
I did what i could,
to finally wait
not fading today.

But then the night came
and I found a place,
a place where your eyes
could see me thru mine
and I loved to stay.

I'm thinking a lot,
and feeling so well
that I want to go,
and knock at your door
to see you again.

You're not from this town,
I'm walking out there,
and giving me time
to make the things right,
to not do the same.

That time had an end.
what happened to you?
I'm not leaving now,
and I'll never do,
if it's not with you.
Track Name: Just a Song
Well, I got really nothing
but you can see me laughing
I'm passing everyone quiet as a ghost

I guess that I can find you
just looking through this mirror
but don't even know my very own face,
'cause I'm not my friend.

Still trying but getting nothing
just fragments of everything.
Keep walking, growing older,
and all that's hurting me.

I couldn't hear that whisper
so painful and so distant
like drowning echoes from my own voice.

Laying down and thinking
about the years and people
pretending to be the one that I was...
I'm nothing like him.

Still trying but getting nothing
just fragments of everything.
Keep walking, growing older,
and all that's hurting me.
