Track Name: Tenderly (2012 Remix)
I am tired of fighting you
And I'm fed up with crying
I just want your tenderness tonight

We will talk about it in the morning
I've been trying
Just to find some answers
Some replies

But tonight, comfort me
Ease my pain tenderly

Try to understand how hard it is
To show emotion
No one ever taught me to express

But you've known for quite a while
About the true devotion
Deep inside of me
You could have guessed

So tonight, comfort me
Ease my pain tenderly
Please don't talk, just be still
I love you, always will

Don't hurt me, just be kind
Be my friend, just be mine
Be gentle, hold my hand
Until dawn, understand

If you give me time to think
About the love inside me
I will try to tell you what I feel

Please don't try to rush me, baby
Please don't try to guide me
I just need some space
To make it real

So don't talk, just be still
I love you, always will
And tonight, comfort me
Ease my pain tenderly

Don't hurt me, just be kind
Be my friend, just be mine
Be gentle, hold my hand
Until dawn, understand

Don't hurt me
Track Name: Estranged
Are we estranged?
Amazing how things have changed since I told you how I feel
Did I go too far?
Did I break your heart? Are we apart?
Do you feel used? Are you confused?

Sometimes you say you still love me
But then you change once again, dearest friend.

Are we estranged?
My life has been rearranged when I walked away from you.
I’m crying each night.
It doesn’t feel right, hurting inside
I’m losing you, what can I do?

There’s never enough time to find a solution for our problems
Does it matter to you how much I care?

Now I am mourning the love we once shared
I know that you cared, what went wrong?

There’s never enough time to find a solution for our problems
Does it matter to you how much I care?

This is the moment we've dreaded for years
Releasing our fears, moving on

Are we estranged?
Track Name: Never Forget (Single Mix)
Remember...
Forever and ever...
I will never forget
Track Name: Fading Away (New Recording)
They say she's only growing older
But I just know they are wrong
Sometimes she cries and doesn't know why
She knows she's fading away a little each day
Fading away, away

They say she gets a little slower
That vacant look in her eyes
Tells me they're wrong
She used to be strong
But now she's fading away a little each day

She used to know their names
But now they're all the same
They come and they go
And she doesn't know who they were
The present means nothing to her
She's fading away, a little each day, away

They say she’s only growing older
The twilight hour of her life
Clear is the past, today doesn't last
She knows she's fading away a little each day
Fading away, away
Track Name: Innocence Lost
Innocence lost
We need a solution
To all this confusion
I've lost my illusions

Burdened with guilt
There's only frustration
In this situation
No imagination

I was trapped in an alley
Had to fight my way out
Tried to shout
No one listens

An attack by a stranger
Now there's blood on my hands
Self-defence
I can't take it

We're surrounded by violence
On the streets
Everywhere
No one cares
Nothing matters

Innocence lost
We need a solution
To all this confusion
I've lost my illusions

Burdened with guilt
There's only frustration
In this situation
No imagination

Late at night in the city
Walking near the canal
To a bar
With a girlfriend

She was thrown in the water
Just for fun
By some drunks
No one knows
Their intentions

We're surrounded by violence
On the streets
Everywhere
No one cares
Nothing matters

Innocence lost
We need a solution
To all this confusion
I've lost my illusions

Burdened with guilt
There's only frustration
In this situation
No imagination
Track Name: Quest (Piano Version)
Now I am searching...
A journey begins; searching within for the truth
And I am drifting...
Conclusion forgone, still I go on, I believe we will be free

Now I am searching...
How could I foresee you couldn’t flee from your fate
And I am drifting...
Now I’m left behind, losing my mind to the past

While you’re gone, is there a reason to go on?
Nowhere to run, no place to go - still I love you so

Now I am searching...
I gave you my soul, total control over me
And I am drifting...
Forever your friend, I won’t pretend, I believe we will be free

Now I am searching...
Someday you’ll return, all my concerns disappear
And I am drifting...
We gather at last, fighting the past once again

While you’re gone, is there a reason to go on?
Nowhere to run, no place to go - still I love you so
Track Name: Remembering
I remember walking here
On a rainy April night
With you by my side

We were walking hand in hand
The rain came down, I didn't care
I could walk forever more to please you
Only to please you

I just want to be close to you
All of the time

But I knew it couldn't last
I would never find a way
To make you stay

There was nothing I could do
And even though you cared for me
We just have to live apart forever
Until the end of time

I'll remember your eyes
Dark and warm
I'll remember your hands
Soft, yet strong
Your lips all over me
Remember how good it used to be

So farewell to you, my friend
Everything I said was true
I care for you

And I hope you'll find a way
To be with me again someday
'Cause I know we have to be together
Until the end of time

I'll remember your eyes
Dark and warm
I'll remember your hands
Soft, yet strong
Your lips all over me
Remember how good it used to be

I'll remember your smile
Sweet and kind
And your face
Is always on my mind
Your tears, that awful night
We parted, I still hurt inside

I'll remember you
Forever more

I just want to be close to you
All of the time

Oh, how I love you

I'll remember your eyes
Dark and warm
I'll remember your hands
Soft, yet strong
Your lips all over me
Remember how good it used to be

I'll remember your smile
Sweet and kind
And your face
Is always on my mind
Your tears, that awful night
We parted, I still hurt inside

I'll remember you
Forever more
Track Name: So Insecure
Whenever
I am confused and stressed
I walk in the fields
To put my heart at rest
So peaceful, the gentle sound of birds
The purple heather
The freshness of the sea

Whenever
I'm feeling sad and lost
I go to a place
Where I can find some rest
A graveyard, quiet between the trees
The silence thickens the air
And comforts me

Sometimes I need to be on my own
Just to find the balance in life again
For a while I just have to be alone
Longing for peace of mind

So insecure…

I'm trying to find a way
To say what I need to say
Give you my love but is it enough
I really don't know what to do

Whenever
I lose my trust in you
I walk on the beach
And hear the crying gulls
The comfort I find in nature's peace
The animals and the trees
Put me at ease

Sometimes I have to be all alone
Just to find the pleasure in life again
For a while I have to be on my own
Yearning for peace of mind

So insecure…

I'm trying to find a way
To say what I need to say
Give you my love but is it enough
I really don't know what to do

My love, where did we go wrong I wonder
My love, am I tearing you asunder
My love, I need you so
But it's so difficult to show

Sometimes I need to be on my own
Just to find the pleasure of life again
For a while I just have to be alone
Yearning for peace of mind

So insecure…

I'm trying to find a way
To say what I need to say
Give you my love but is it enough
I really don't know what to do
Track Name: Barricades (2013 Extended Remix)
You're all I really want
You're all I really need
I feel it in my heart

Thought I was tough
Thought I was cold
I could control my emotions
I built a fence around my heart
You tore it down in a moment

I wish that I could hold you tonight
It hurts me inside now it's over
'Cause there is someone else in your heart
It tears me apart, I can't take it
You're the only one that I want

You broke down the barricades
I erected around my heart
I thought I was incapable
Of feeling anything
But now you have gone away
And I'm crying all of the time
It seems so useless
To throw away all we shared

You, you're all I really want
You're all I really need, I feel it in my heart
He, he's no good for you, boy
He'll never change inside
It's tearing me apart

Now you are gone I'm so alone
I realize how I miss you
Can't let it go, want you to know
How much it hurts here without you

They say there’s someone else that you love
He forced you to choose between us
I understand he's part of your heart
But he'll never change and I love you
You're the only one that I want

You broke down the barricades
I erected around my heart
I thought I was incapable
Of feeling anything
But now you have gone away
And I'm crying all of the time
It seems so useless
To throw away all we shared

You, you're all I really want
You're all I really need, I feel it in my heart
He, he's no good for you, boy
He'll never change inside
It's tearing me apart
You're the only one that I want

You broke down the barricades
I erected around my heart
I thought I was incapable
Of feeling anything
But now you have gone away
And I'm crying all of the time
It seems so useless
To throw away all we shared
You're the only one that I want
