Stay/Go

Released: November 2012

Track Listing:

Before the words were out of their mouths

The doors were closed and they were told to turn around

The claim that love was the law of the land

Was laid to rest when we disowned what we don’t understand

 

I want a new tradition

I want to love beyond the condition

 

We’re stealing when we sell what is free

And keep much more than we could ever need

Instead of a hundred thousand houses spread around

We’ve locked ourselves inside a fortress thatis bound to go down

 

I want a new tradition I want to love beyond the condition

I want a new solution

And a kingdom come

 

We’re the next in a long line

For taking over

And if we can get it right

It’s gonna be a landslide

 

We can tear it down and throw it away

Or we can put it together and change everything

 

We’re the next in a long line

For taking over

And if we can get it right

It’s gonna be a landslide

And if we can learn to love we’ll take it from the inside

 

It’s gonna be a landslide

We’ll make our way through the rain and sun

A hundred miles and we’ve only just begun

We’ll walk for days and take it underground A hundred years is still a newborn in this town

So keep it underground

 

You’re the evidence, you hold the key

You make sense of this mystery

When I need proof, you’re my defense

Of what I always knew, you’re my evidence

 

We’ll chase these years like the crashing waves

We’re never lost as long as I can see your face

And we know that we can’t stay

So we’ll hang these moments on the hope of a new day

 

You’re the evidence, you hold the key

You make sense of this mystery

When I need proof, you’re my defense

Of what I always knew, you’re my evidence

Come on, we’re going further in

Can’t ignore it, it’s underneath your skin

It’s not the end, this is where we begin

 

Come on, this is no time to stall

Any minute we’ll hear the ready call

We can’t lose, if we’re not afraid to fall

 

And the night’s slowly giving way

With the sun burning through the haze

And the morning will shine so bright

With the colors of future light

 

Come on, out of our hiding places

Moving forward into the open spaces

We press on until our faces glow

 

And the night’s slowly giving way

With the sun burning through the haze

And the morning will shine so bright

With the colors of future light

 

We weren’t blind but it’s bringing us sight

 

It’s clearing the trees, it’s coming to view

Like nothing we’ve seen but we always knew

Don’t look away, the sky’s about to ignite, with future light

Don’t give in

I don’t want surrender

Quite a state we’re in

But it’s not now or never

I only wanted you to see

But now I am listening

 

I’m not the same I was before

Goodbye to goodnight, New York

 

Don’t lose heart

I need it there to follow

Like a morning star

To guide me to tomorrow

Before you I could hardly see

Through the now to the lasting

 

I’m not the same I was before

Goodbye to goodnight, New York

 

And I won’t let these bright lights

Spin me around

When we know love and give it the same

When we cry out but not for the pain

When no more blood is spilled in your name

Then We’ll be Free

 

When we belong no matter where we’ve been

When no one’s lost, no one goes unseen

When here and there meet in between

Then We’ll be Free

 

When we make peace before the sun can set

A promise made is a promise kept

When we forgive what we can’t forget

We’ll Be Free

 

Don’t Turn around, don’t turn away

No we won’t turn back won’t turn away

Then we won’t turn around, won’t turn away

Can it stand to bear the weight? Or is it a symptom of this age That we bend to the pressure until it breaks?

 

And we just can’t keep the pace So we’re giving up the chase It’s not going to fast love, there’s just no space

 

Let’s swim against the tide We’ll find the golden shore Let’s write the storyline we’ve been waiting for

 

There are the Days of the here and now Nothing behind us to slow us down Nothing ahead we can’t take in stride All the world can wait for you tonight

 

We close our eyes when summer’s gone And wake up when the leaves are on the ground Never saw it coming, didn’t make a sound

 

Let’s swing against the tide We’ll find the golden shore Let’s live the storyline we’ve been waiting for

Don’t wait for the crash to bring the shadows to the light

Maybe we can skip the fall if we know ourselves from our own rise

 

Cause if your strength is an anchor

you can hold your ground

But it can drag you to the bottom

and hold you down

 

There’s no easy way out

There’s no easy way out

So just stay the course

 

If it’s take take take then we both run dry

There’s still a chance to make it till right after your last try

 

Cause you can hold your love for ransom

To maintain control

But it will never sustain never replace

What you had to hold

 

There’s no easy way out

There’s no easy way out

There’s no easy way to navigate around, so just stay the course

Every word made it’s mark

And drew the line between

Now I just want to make it back

On the other side

But there’s always something keeping it’s weight on me

 

I break my heart

 

Just a spark of friendly fire

Burned it to the ground

Left a scar, and a load to bear

Then vanished in the night

It’s so hard to carry but it’s harder to lay down

When I’m in the sky you hold my strings

So I won’t blow out to see

And I would be lost in those clouds

Without you hanging on to me

 

So hold on tight and let the seasons change

There’s no reason for us standing in their way

 

Cause we’ve got all the time we need

Forever and after, together you and me

 

I’ll keep your hand inside of mine

When it’s too dark to find your way

And when we’re half a world apart

I’ll still choose you everyday

 

Cause we’ve got all the time we need

Forever and after, together you and me

 

Sometimes a heart can move faster

Then you came down tumbling after

And now your heartbeat

Is the timepiece

That I’m falling after

 

Cause we’ve got all the time we need

Forever and after, together you and me

 

So stay close, stay close

Where you are, you know that is home

And when we’re calling out across the storms

Stay close, stay close

Mayfly

I was so sad to find

You only had one day

It’s not enough time

 

But Mayfly,

You’re not bothered by

The length of your stay

Like I am with mine

 

And I’m suddenly afraid

All the efforts that I make

At keeping myself safe

Are killing me

 

See the light start to flicker out

Behind those eyes

It reads like a warning

Feel it rise like the sea at night

To drown you out

Just moments away

From making a big escape

 

And I’m suddenly afraid

All the efforts that I make

At keeping myself safe

Are killing me

 

Maybe a day without fear is worth 10.000

 

Time for the big escape, to the great unknown

This is a big escape, to the great unknown (I’m not afraid)

Sleep, like a child sleep

Leave the dark with me

And fall asleep

 

Dream a quiet dream

Where all is as it seems

And fall asleep

 

Rest and when you wake

You will greet a brand new day

That’s been waiting for you

 

Deep, settle in the deep

Let the striving cease

And just be

 

Rest and when you wake

You will greet a brand new day

That’s been waiting for you
