guillemdc Saw them long time ago in Madrid. They were killer. "A song of loss" and "Quit old habits" from their previous record are amazing songs. A pity they aren't known by a bigger audience. Favorite track: Drowning.

Track Name: Close Your Eyes
She was looking out for number one
But they never told her he was already gone
Then he came to realize she was the one
I hate the fact that I have waited for so long

Sometimes we find ourselves we’re holding on to someone else
While in fact we’re all the while being busy with ourselves
And though I am afraid of leaving everything I am
I would love to open up to you I swear

So close your eyes and tell me what you feel
There’s no time to waste anymore
In the need for the other we abide
So open up yourself open wide

I’m sorry for the times I’ve wasted you
I’ve simply not considered I was hurting you

What does it mean to love someone
Why did I fall in love with you

So close your eyes and tell me what you feel
There’s no time to waste anymore
In the need for the other we abide
So open up yourself open wide

So close your eyes and tell me what you feel
There’s no time to waste anymore
In the need for the other we abide
So open up yourself open wide
Track Name: Darlington Park
can I open my own chest now
I can’t sleep, can’t stop thinking about my world,
where souls will walk around these dark and misty roads.

I will bleed till death, yeah I know I will,
there’s no cure, but time is on my side.
graves will wait, for warmth and apathy.

for what it’s worth, I still did it on my own
it’s cold inside, so please take me home.
Saint Catherina, get me out of this place.

and now bottles reach for my hand,
but to what road, it all seems down to me.
I don’t wanna be here, by the end of this day.

I can’t see clear under influence
can’t wash my hands in innocence
I wished the night would soon be gone.

another night, my thoughts are sinking
I wished these lights would go off and on again
I’ll get back up, for another race at Darlington Park, to burn it all away.
Track Name: Drowning
Do you ever walk away where everything associates pain
When you feel the scars from yesterdays and misery is you
It never goes away it goes wherever you go you feel alone
All the things you hold on to will slip through your fingers

I know the pain of letting go you’re not the only one
Come close to me
Love is all we have and all we need

All the things you’re after and the images inside your head
The promises of dreams you’ve ever had
A journey all by yourself
It never goes away it goes wherever you go you feel alone
All the things you hold on to will slip through your fingers

I know the pain of letting go you’re not the only one
Come close to me
Love is all we have and all we need
Oh the moments we feel alone and lost
All that is common to us
Is this the meaning of your life?

Tell me is it brave to go off wandering
The search for what’s worthwhile

I know the pain of letting go you’re not the only one
Come close to me
Love is all we have and all we need
Oh the moments we feel alone and lost
All that is common to us
Is this the meaning of your life?

I never would
Track Name: Saints & Sinners
i can’t walk straight anymore
and i won’t settle for anything less
i can’t speak, my throat is sore
think i’ll stay in this state.

four bottles are on the floor
think it’s time for me to comprehend
until i clear my thoughts
not waiting for you

no control, i’m going to a safer place on the other side
i can’t recall all the drinks that i have seen tonight

i’m not waiting for you to be a part of this i can’t relive my past
i’m living in circles, drowning in my wine
i’m singing to sinners and saints, yeah i’ll be fine.

oh baby i won’t get up
let my dream keep me alive for now,
i’ll drink myself into it, slipping away

no control, i’m going to a safer place on the other side
i can’t recall all the drinks that i have seen tonight

i’m not waiting for you to be a part of this i can’t relive my past

well am i moving too slow?
i can’t see what’s in front of me
i didn’t go out to see you all tonight

i’m living in circles, drowning in my wine
i’m singing to sinners and saints, yeah i’ll be fine

i can’t walk straight anymore
and i won’t settle for anything less
i can’t speak, my throat is sore
just slipping away.

i’m not waiting for you to be a part of this i can’t relive my past.

well i’m moving too slow?
i can’t see what’s in front of me
i didn’t go out to see you all tonight.

i’m living in circles, drowning in my wine.
i’m singing to sinners and saints, yeah i’ll be fine.
Track Name: Homecoming
what is this about cleaning up without knowing, i can’t decide.
what is this? i’ll be tumblin dice, i’m out of change but not out of keys, just waiting, we’ll be quite alright

i’ll be home in a year i guess, my burning side will come
now i’m wandering trough the clouds tonight, let’s leave here.

will you go away with me? a better time a better place.
will you go away with me? tonight, i’ll be gone

this goes on another week or two, without sitting straight from the starting point without caring, not without a fight
minus the hooks from the medicine, i’m shouting out for the odyssey without knowing, but i’ll be quite alright.

i’ll be home in a year i guess, my burning side will come
now i’m wandering trough the clouds tonight, let’s leave here.

will you go away with me? a better time a better place.
will you go away with me? tonight, i’ll be gone

i’ll sing this only to deny it
what’s on the surface won’t provide
waiting to make some sense just to be heard
i’ll keep on sinking

will you go away with me? a better time a better place.
will you go away with me? tonight, i’ll be gone
