Sitting Down Here



I'm sitting down here, but hey you can't see me

Your words cut rather deeply, they're just some other lies
I'm hiding from a distance, I've got to pay the price
Defending all against it, I really don't know why
You're obsessed with all my secrets, you always make me cry
You seem to wanna hurt me, no matter what I do
I'm telling just a couple, but somehow it gets to you
But I've learned to get revenge and
I swear you'll experience that someday

I'm sitting down here, but hey you can't see me
Kinda invisible you don't sense my stay
Not really hiding, not like a shadow
Just thought I would join you for one day
I'm sitting down here, but hey you can't see me

I'm not trying to avoid you, just don't wanna hear your voice
When you call me up so often, I don't really have a choice
You're talking like you know me, and wanna be my friend
But that's really too late now, I won't try it once again
You may think that I'm a loser, that I don't really care
May think that it's forgotten, but you should be aware
'Cause I've learned to get revenge and I swear you'll experience that someday

I'm sitting down here, but hey you can't see me
Kinda invisible you don't sense my stay
Not really hiding, not like a shadow
Just thought I would join you for one day

I'm sitting down here, but hey you can't see me
Kinda invisible you don't sense my stay
Not really hiding, not like a shadow
But sure I wanna join you for one day

You seem to wanna hurt me, no matter what I do
I'm telling just a couple, but somehow it gets to you
But I've learned to get revenge and
I swear you'll experience that someday

I'm sitting down here, but hey you can't see me
Kinda invisible you don't sense my stay
Not really hiding, not like a shadow
Just thought I would join you for one day

I'm sitting down here, but hey you can't see me
Kinda invisible you don't sense my stay
Not really hiding, not like a shadow
But sure I wanna join you for one day

I'm sitting down here, but hey you can't see me
Kinda invisible you don't sense my stay
Not really hiding, not like a shadow
Just thought I would join you for one day

I'm sitting down here, but hey you can't see me
Kinda invisible you don't sense my stay
Not really hiding, not like a shadow
But sure I wanna join you for one day

Playing My Game



Won't open my mouth, you know what I'll say
It hurts me that it's gotta be this way
I can no longer hide
God knows I tried

I held on as long as I could
If I could change it, I would
This is the way I am
And this is what I do

I cry my tears but they're not for you
Playing a game I know you've done too
I shouldn't have waited but still it is all the same
'Cause you know, I'm just playing my game

Close your ears if you don't like the sound of my voice
You're acting like I, like I had a choice
But to leave you behind
Well, I've made up my mind

I cry my tears but they're not for you
Playing a game I know you've done too
I shouldn't have waited but still it is all the same
'Cause you know, I'm just playing my game

Don't hold me with your eyes
The light in them I cannot see, no need to blind me
There's this darkness where I walk
You thought you had your future all figured out
I cry

I cry my tears but they're not for you
Playing a game I know you've done too
I shouldn't have waited but still it is all the same
'Cause you know, I'm just playing my game
I'm playing my game

Unforgivable Sinner



Kinda lose your sence of time 'cause the days don't matter no more
All the feelings that you hide gonna tear you up inside
You hope she knows you tried
Follows you around all day
And you wake up soaking wet
'Cause between this world and eternity
There is a face you hope to see

You know where you've sent her, you sure know where you are
You're trying to ease off, but you know you won't get far
And now she's up there sings like an angel
But you can't hear those words
And now she's up there sings like an angel
Unforgivable sinner

You've been walking around in tears
No answers are there to get
You won't ever be the same
Someone cries and you're to blame
Struggling with a fight inside
Sorrow you'll defeat
The picture you see it won't dissappear
Not unpleasant dreams or her voice you hear

You know where you've sent her, you sure know where you are
You're trying to ease off, but you know you won't get far
And now she's up there sings like an angel
But you can't hear those words
And now she's up there sings like an angel
Unforgivable sinner

Maybe one time lost but now you're found
Stand right up before you hit the ground
Maybe one time lost but now you're found
Stand right up before you hit the ground
Hit the ground

You know where you've sent her, you sure know where you are
You're trying to ease off, but you know you won't get far
And now she's up there sings like an angel
But you can't hear those words
And now she's up there sings like an angel
Unforgivable sinner

Flown Away



I've flown too high on borrowed wings
Beyond the clouds and where the angel sings
In a sky containing no one but me
Up there's all empty and down there's the sea
No one here but me

There's nothing but light that comes into sight oh

There's something up here that makes me wince
And I still got the feelings that I've felt ever since
I got to this place arrived at last
In front there's the future right back there's the past
Everything's moving so fast

There's nothing but light that comes into sight oh
Oh

The present like I've never seen it before
Is this the right place to stay
Please my wings
Fly me away

The present like I've never seen it before
Is this the right place to stay
Please my wings
Fly me away
Please my wings
Fly me away
Please my wings
Fly me away

The Way We Are



I watch you growing sometimes I see myself in you
It can be scary but kinda funny too
I hear you talking a lot of similarities
Your choice of words and all the fantasies

Just the way we are I guess you've seen it now
A mirror of ourselves sure makes us weird
Falling down from a mountain of frights
What's there to hold on to?

The way you make us all smile and the despair when you just won't go to sleep
You could have me walking a mile to make you smile still it's not really a weep
I know you fooled me a million times
I just can't help it don't know why

Just the way we are I guess you've seen it now
A mirror of ourselves sure makes us weird
Falling down from a mountain of frights
What's there to hold on to?

I know you hate it but they really have to do what they do
You're crying out your wishes
I understand
Yet they don't have a clue

Just the way we are I guess you've seen it now
A mirror of ourselves sure makes us weird
Falling down from a mountain of frights
What's there to hold on to?

Falling down from a mountain of frights
What's there to hold on to?

So I See



So I see it, it's right there in front of me
What's a matter, oh you cannot see
Feeling like I did when you blindfolded me
So I hear it, for a brief moment there I thought I knew
All these things they were far, far from true
But I guess you cannot hide from the truth

So I see right through you
And I know what you've been up to
So I see right through you
And I know the things you do

So I see it, it's right there in front of me
Oh, I'm sorry, you did not wanna see
Acting like I did when you betrayed me
So I hear it, they didn't have to scream it in my head
They just could have whispered it instead
'Cause I am already over it now

So I see right through you
And I know what you've been up to
So I see right through you
And I know the things you do

So I hear it, they didn't have to scream it in my head
They just could have whispered it instead
'Cause I am already over it now

So I see right through you
And I know what you've been up to
So I see right through you
And I know the things you do

So I see right through you
And I know what you've been up to
So I see right through you
And I know the things you do

So I see right through you
And I know what you've been up to
So I see right through you
And I know the things you do

Maybe I'll Go



You think you've made it, everything's going so fine
But then appears someone who wanna tear you down
Wanna rip you off those few nice things you've found
When and if you hit the ground then it's falling kinda hard
'Cause all you do is being yourself
Trying everything to succed somehow
But that's not the way things are right now
Feeling kinda lost

Those reasons those unkind words being expressed
Oh they'll get to you I promise one day
But maybe then it's too late for you to say
I knew it from the go 'cause you know
That's some miles away from the truth
Don't forget
Hey what do you think of me now
Am I not like I once were
Still if you don't know me what's the story of this pen
I guess you're not a stranger and I can tell you're not a friend
It might take a while but I guess I'll manage waiting 'till then
Then when you confront me with your thoughts

You may think I don't notice don't get a bit hurt by what you do
I ask you to please think of what I've done to you
Please search inside and let me know
If I've done something wrong I guess I'll go
Far
Hidden
Never to be found
Just let me know that I'll go
Then I'll go

Where I'm Headed



I've got a suitcase in my hand
Filled with stuff most precious to me
Sidewalk brings my feet whereever they're headed
There is no direction given
Just some trust in human mind to rely on and to hold on to
Honestly don't know where I'll end up at last
Won't even count the days
One thing I sure know I won't move so fast
My mind in complete haze
I pass by don't dare to stop when there's someone I see
There's no one here but me
I'm fooled by something inside my head
If I lay down now I might seem kinda dead
Just keep on wasting time
Scary thoughts and frightening sounds
In my mind still I try to avoid it
Heading through this hope not one-way alley
I can't really sense my surroundings
Seems to be all dark around
Nothing there to lighten up my way

Honestly don't know where I'll end up at last
Won't even count the days
One thing I sure know I won't move so fast
My mind in complete haze

I pass by don't dare to stop when there's someone I see
There's no one here but me
I'm fooled by something inside my head
If I lay down now I might seem kinda dead
Just keep on wasting time

I pass by don't dare to stop

I walk slow in secret listening to the sound of steps
Imagination seems to go all crazy
I've got all the time I need
Wanna dream fullfill my wishes
Like this future already now been entered

I pass by don't dare to stop when there's someone I see
There's no one here but me
I'm fooled by something inside my head
If I lay down now I might seem kinda dead
Just keep on wasting time

I pass by don't dare to stop when there's someone I see
There's no one here but me
I'm fooled by something inside my head
If I lay down now I might seem kinda dead
Just keep on wasting time

(Pass by don't dare to stop)
(Fooled by something inside my head)
(Pass by don't dare to stop)
(Fooled by something inside my head)

One Year Ago



She's walking there alone, no one by her side
She manages to fight the tears, but the pain inside she can't hide
And all the tears she's cried

The moment she closes her eyes, she starts thinking of you
The dreams that she had one time have gone away
Will they ever come true?
All she needs is, all she needs is you, all she needs is you

And she wishes today was one year ago
When you cared so much for her and loved her so
Not a doubt in her mind that it would still be you
'Cause the love that you shared it was true

You never thought about it, what you made her feel
You promised you'd stay together but the hope she once had, so unreal
All she needs is, all she needs is you, all she needs is you

And she wishes today was one year ago
When you cared so much for her and loved her so
Not a doubt in her mind that it would still be you
'Cause the love that you shared it was true

She's walking there alone, no one by her side
She manages to fight the tears, but the pain inside she can't hide

And she wishes today was one year ago
When you cared so much for her and loved her so
Not a doubt in her mind that it would still be you
'Cause the love that you shared it was true

And she wishes today was one year ago
When you cared so much for her and loved her so
Not a doubt in her mind that it would still be you
'Cause the love that you shared it was true

A Place Nearby



I entered the room
Sat by your bed all through the night
I watched your daily fight
I hardly knew

The pain was almost more than I could bear
And still I hear your last words to me

Heaven is a place nearby so I won't be so far away
And if you try and look for me maybe you'll find me someday
Heaven is a place nearby so there's no need to say goodbye
I wanna ask you not to cry I'll always be by your side

You just faded away you spread your wings you had flown
Away to something unknown wish I could bring you back
You're always on my mind about to tear myself apart
You have your special place in my heart
Always

Heaven is a place nearby so I won't be so far away
And if you try and look for me maybe you'll find me someday
Heaven is a place nearby so there's no need to say goodbye
I wanna ask you not to cry I'll always be by your side

And even when I go to sleep I still can hear your voice
And those words I never will forget

Heaven is a place nearby so I won't be so far away
And if you try and look for me maybe you'll find me someday
Heaven is a place nearby so there's no need to say goodbye
I wanna ask you not to cry I'll always be by your side
