Track Name: Silver and gold
Silver and Gold

Once I loved you like a child
once I watched my heart grow old
once I let my thoughts run wild
my heart was made of gold

When I left my mother dear
when I left my father mild
nothing else was left to fear
I loved you like a child

Tell me a story, tell me a story
tell me a story some thousand years old
Tell me a story, tell me a story
tell me a story of silver and gold

When I left you long ago
I never felt I had to choose
when I let my heart decide
there was nothing that I had to lose

When I left my doubts behind
I could keep my faith in life
when I let my thoughts run wild
I found myself and smiled

Tell me a story, tell me a story
tell me a story some thousand years old
Tell me a story, tell me a story
tell me a story of silver and gold

They say that some things have to be
just like they have always been
there's one, but there's no other way
to live and to love and to sin

Tell me a story, tell me a story
tell me a story some thousand years old
Tell me a story, tell me a story
tell me a story of silver and gold

All this happened long ago
all of this is over now
but it all will never end
they love you still somehow

Tell me a story, tell me a story
tell me a story some thousand years old
Tell me a story, tell me a story
tell me a story of silver and gold

I didn't love them quite enough
to live their life instead of mine
once I loved you like a child
but that was another time
Track Name: Don't be scared
Don't be scared

Don't be scared, little girl, for there's no such thing as hell
let the night keep its shadows
blame yourself and be true, like the others do, like the others do

Don't be scared, little girl, for there's no such thing as sin
let the night keep its shadows
do you know who you are? Do you know you'll travel far, like the others do?

You cry over your sins you hide a pleasant grin
you know where you have been and where you go to
you step into the sun where all of this begun
you step into the light and let it shine

Don't cry, little girl, for there's nothing to fear
let the night keep its shadows, let the sun dry your tears
trust yourself and be you, like the others do, like the others do

Start to fight, little girl, for there's nothing to lose
Let the night keep its shadows, let the wind heal your bruise
let your thoughts run free and wild, and dare to be right, if you choose to fight, if you choose to fight

And suddenly you lose control let go and let them have your soul
and you wouldn't want it any other way
and suddenly you start to fly you jump and wave the world good-bye
and when you hit the ground you're tale's been told

I'm not scared, little girl, if we ever go to hell we'll be coming back home every other day
hell is no place to stay, hell is life and light is day, if you choose to stay, if you choose to stay, if you choose to stay

Don't be scared, little girl, for there's no such thing as hell
let the night keep its shadows
Track Name: Shape of your shadow
The shape of your shadow

Forgive me for I haven't sinned
my lips are sealed, I'm growing wings
I give myself to the laughing winds to take me to the ground

I'm shouting kisses at your soul
we breathe champagne, we lose control
the stakes are high, I've lost my goal to take you to the ground

I'm changing the shape of your shadow
I sing you the songs of my soul
I'm changing the sheets on your bed
only whispers of wishes and wonders will carry me home

your body smells like poisoned wine
I'm bleeding pain, I feel divine
my lips are yours, your lips are mine, you take me to the ground

I'm changing the shape of your shadow
I sing you the songs of my soul
I'm changing the sheets on your bed
only whispers of wishes and wonders will carry me home

stolen nights and stolen love
incomplete and far away
feel me fade my foreign friend, feel my fires fading

rusty rhymes in ragged robes
restless in the morning air
lost in time, my foreign friend, false desires failing

I'm changing the shape of your shadow
I sing you the songs of my soul
I'm changing the sheets on your bed
only whispers of wishes and wonders will carry me home

I'm changing the shape of your shadow
I sing you the songs of my soul
I'm changing the sheets on your bed
only whispers of wishes and wonders will carry me home
Track Name: What am I to you
What am I to you?

What am I to you, creature of the night
who am I to you my strangest friend
what is there to know for our love to mend
seven sins forgiven, I can't love you till the end

What am I to you, creature of the night
who am I to you my strangest friend
what is there to know for our love to mend
all our sins forgiven, I can't love you till the end

Homeless heartbeats, hollow in the night
careless glory ready to fight
seldom startled, fearless and fierce
seven sorrows, shameless and sheer

What am I to you, comfort of my nights
who am I to you my strangest fear
where is there to go, when all the rivers end
seven sins forgiven, I can't love you till the end
till the end, till the end, till the end

What am I to you, creature of the night
who am I to you my strangest friend
what is there to know for our love to mend
all our sins forgiven, I can't love you till the end
