vankakka Awesome work. Thoughtful lyrics. Sounds great for a 2008 laptop mic. Your best album yet. Favorite track: House on a Cliff.

mags This was enjoyable. After listening to the album, I found myself humming a couple of tracks the next day. Nicely done! Favorite track: Parable of the Empty Mind.

Track Name: Darling
Darling
You're impeccable
Unbelievable
My miracle

I can't find
The words to describe
Your beauty
Is on my mind

Now we're both so young
And we're still having fun

So I sit back trying not to get hurt
My voice is soft like a shy introvert
My heart starts pounding like a drum
And when you speak out I just go numb

I can't express my feelings to ya
That's why I let my music move ya
Can't stop thinking I'm going crazy
You're on my mind 'cause you amaze me

Sweetheart
It's improbable
Not impossible
We'll be getting old

Together
Just me and her
But for now
I'm still unhurt

Now we're both so young
And we're still having fun

So I sit back trying not to get hurt
My voice is soft like a shy introvert
My heart starts pounding like a drum
And when you speak out I just go numb

I can't express my feelings to ya
That's why I let my music move ya
Can't stop thinking I'm going crazy
You're on my mind 'cause you amaze me

Now we're both so young
And we're still having fun

So I sit back trying not to get hurt
My voice is soft like a shy introvert
My heart starts pounding like a drum
And when you speak out I just go numb

I can't express my feelings to ya
That's why I let my music move ya
Can't stop thinking I'm going crazy
You're on my mind 'cause you amaze me
Track Name: Aphrodite's Game
Girl, you're one in seven billion
There's no one else on Earth quite like you
And we are two halves that make a whole
Like Aristophanes' tales of old

When I see your enchanting grin
I feel fire under my skin
Calypso couldn't hold back my love for you
That's how I know this feeling must be true

With the music in your voice
Our love is fated; we don't have a choice
With the sound of your name
Aphrodite's won her game

For you I'd take on Medusa's eyes
Whatever gets me to paradise
Sing in me Muse, tell your story
'Cause your siren's song is calling for me

With the music in your voice
Our love is fated; we don't have a choice
With the sound of your name
Aphrodite's won her game

With the music in your voice
Our love is fated; we don't have a choice
With the sound of your name
Aphrodite's won her game
Track Name: Fries on a First Date
Do you like

Fries on a first date
Or just some video games
Do you have a hobby
What's your middle name

Who's your favorite actor
Mountains or the beach
Can you talk for hours
Do you like me

There's a lot
I wanna say
It's not coming out
And it's hurting me

You're so much more
Than a pretty face
If we're gonna talk
I gotta be brave

Do you have a sibling
Girl can you ice skate
I think we should go surfing
How late can you stay

What's your favorite candy
How well can you dance
What time do you go to bed
Can I hold your hand

You're so unlike
Anyone before
One in a million
That's for sure

I need to learn
How to speak up
When you are around
My knees get weak

Gotta be brave
Gotta stand up on my feet

These questions are killing me

Can I tell you something
I think you're really cute
I don't know what I'd do
If I lost you

I think your smile's perfect
I wouldn't change a thing
I just need you to know
How much you mean to me
Track Name: Copper Coin
(whistling)

Hello my lovely friend
You're beautiful
Your life can't be that bad
As I recall

A time when you
Ate a whole stack of chocolate chip pancakes
All that sugar
Helped you stay up extra late

Took a stroll to the park where we first met
And of course that's the night I won't forget

When you need a friend
Don't worry
I'll be there for you
Please don't worry

You never let me down
As long as I've known you
Honest as a copper coin
You always speak the truth

Nothing's as contagious
As a smile across your face
Except the way you yawn
When you first awake

When you need a friend
Don't worry
I'll be there for you
Please don't worry

Now you need a friend
Don't worry
I am here for you
Please don't worry

I'll stay 'til the end
Don't worry
My heart will stay true
Please don't worry

(whistling)
Track Name: Lost and Found
I'm looking for you now
At the lost and found
Since I misplaced you
The other day

I think you left this town
When I was turned around
Now I'm printing posters
Of your pretty face

Have you seen this girl
Have you seen my friend
I hope I find her soon
So I can make amends

Outside the corner store
I'm standing by the door
Handing out flyers
Of your pretty face

Can't do this anymore
My feet are getting sore
Since I've been out here
Every single day

Where did they take my girl
Where did they take my friend
I'd pay a ransom if
I could see her again

Where did they take my girl
Where did they take my friend
I hope I find her soon
So I can make amends

Don't know what to say
When I try to pray
I need you next to me
I want to be happy

So I'm looking for you now
At the lost and found
At the lost and found
Track Name: House on a Cliff
We're always waiting
Watching the waves
From the windowsill

Whispering softly
The voice of the sea
Says we should be still

You need me dearly
And I can see clearly
I need you too

Still we are fighting
I find it quite frightening
and so do you

Lonely together
Living forever
Today

You and I live in
A house on a cliff
By the waves

Off in the distance
The ocean is calling
Our name

Lighthouse is shining
And we are deciding
The meaning of life

The painting you made
Of the sea from the shade
Reflects our strife

Raging and shouting
You cry and you ask
For another

I feel the same
So why are we
Holding each other

Lonely together
Living forever
Today

You and I live in
A house on a cliff
By the waves

Off in the distance
The ocean is calling
Our name
Track Name: Beautiful Ghost
The kind of person you were
Many years ago
Had a spirit I
Knew was beautiful

But the person you are now
Let that spirit fade
i think about it often
As I sit here in the shade

It happens far too much
Both with lovers and friends
The person that I cared for
Wasn't there in the end

And you're no different from them
You became another breed
Leaving me in love with
A person that used to be

So all I know is people change
They don't ever stay the same
What kind of creature bit into them
While I was turned the other way

When I first saw your face
I thought you were the one
And though you look the same
Your spirit is now done

And I sit here in the shade
Under a broken dream
Loving the beautiful ghost
Of a person that used to be

So all I know is people change
They don't ever stay the same
What kind of creature bit into them
While I was turned the other way

All I know is people change
They don't ever stay the same
What kind of creature bit into them
While I was turned the other way

I sit here in the shade
Under a broken dream
Loving the beautiful ghost of
A person that used to be
Track Name: Cheers
You leave me lonely
And I am scarred
But you're not the only one to
Break my heart

You could not try hard enough
My love
There's nothing left for you to take
Hold of

So cheers
Don't you worry 'bout me anymore
'Cause I
Feel better than I have before
Before

My time with you
Hurt my mental health
I had no clue
You only thought of yourself

You never noticed
How hard I tried
This was not the first time I
Have died

So cheers
Don't you worry 'bout me anymore
'Cause I
Feel better than I have before
Before

Goodbye
You're just a waste of time
I can't believe
I ever called you mine

So cheers
Farewell
Goodbye

So cheers
Don't you worry 'bout me anymore
'Cause I
Feel better than I have before
Before

Goodbye
You're just a waste of time
I can't believe
I ever called you mine

So cheers
Farewell
Goodbye
Track Name: Parable of the Empty Mind
Everyday I live in bad faith
And pretend it's alright
Everyday I turn the TV on
And watch the stars from the satellites

Sometimes I read the newsprint
And watch the politicians fight
Sometimes I cash my paycheck
And watch my bills ignite

Everyday I roll my boulder up the hill
And watch it fall back down
I tell myself my work is good
So I don't feel drowned

Every night I'm looking for love
To find a woman fair
Since I learned by reading Sartre
That my head is full of air

Some nights I see them looking
Returning my stare
I'd look back at 'em from the void
But I don't think I dare

Everyday I roll my boulder up the hill
And watch it fall back down
I tell myself my work is good
So I don't feel drowned

But my mind is blank
I live in sin
There are no thoughts
Behind my grin

Your soul is mine
Your brain I stole
I need your essence to make me whole
I need your essence to make me whole

Are other people objects
Or are their spirits free
I feel a need to own them
And I want them to own me

Why was I created
Was building me easy
I'm aware I exist
But I don't want to be

Everyday I roll my boulder up the hill
And watch it fall back down
I tell myself my work is good
So I don't feel drowned

But my mind is blank
I live in sin
There are no thoughts
Behind my grin

Your soul is mine
Your brain I stole
I need your essence to make me whole
I need your essence to make me whole
Track Name: Some Days I Hallucinate
Late at night I'm all alone
Still sitting at my telephone
Just for the chance to hear your voice

Suddenly I hear it ring
But then I don't hear anything
What will this madness not destroy

Looking through your pictures
I do not know
Why you had to leave me
Where did you go
It's not my fault but I feel it so
Why do I blame myself

Finally I go to bed
But then I hear it ring again
My frown becomes a painful grin

We talk until the sunrise
And finally I realize
The telephone isn't plugged in

Looking through your pictures
I do not know
Why you had to leave me
Where did you go
It's not my fault but I feel it so
Why do I blame myself

And some days I hallucinate that you're still here
Some nights I hear your footsteps thinking you are near
My shrink wastes no time telling me what I'm supposed to feel
But I'm having trouble telling what is real

Now I've started taking pills
So I can focus paying bills
And then I see you standing there

I do my best to look away
But I can't get my eyes to stray
I try so hard to hug the air

Looking through your pictures
I do not know
Why you had to leave me
Where did you go
It's not my fault but I feel it so
Why do I blame myself

Waiting for the phone call I was in Hell
The night they said you died I almost died myself
The funeral was over when I woke up from the spell
Now all that's left are your pictures on the shelf

And some days I hallucinate that you're still here
Some nights I hear your footsteps thinking you are near
My shrink wastes no time telling me what I'm supposed to feel
But I'm having trouble telling what is real

I don't want to know what is real
Track Name: The Chestnut Tree
Under the spreading chestnut tree
I sold you and you sold me
I remember how happy we used to be
When there were flowers as far as the eye could see

Under the dying chestnut tree
I stabbed you and you stabbed me
It's not our faults, it had to be
In the land without music or poetry

"He's watching you" all the posters say
In every corner of every city
Day by day and heart by heart
I wish we both could go back to the start
Back to the start
Back to the start
Back to the start

The crowds all hiss as the prisoners march
With faces bruised and palates parched
One by one soldiers load their charge
And gun them down like the pigs they are

"He's watching you" all the posters say
In every corner of every city
Day by day and heart by heart
I wish we both could go back to the start
Back to the start
Back to the start
Back to the start

Under the growing chestnut tree
I kissed you and you kissed me
I'm sorry we just couldn't be
Delivered from this villainy

Day by day and heart by heart
I wish we all could go back to the start
Track Name: Heartstruck
I'm thinking of all the times we laughed
As I'm looking into your photograph
The times we sang, the times we cried
I hope that feeling is still alive

In the night when I'm full of doubt
I cry out, I cry out
And though it's dark and I cannot see
I want you to haunt me

I want to hear your voice
I need to feel your noise
I would do anything to see your face one last time
I'm

Out of luck, I'm feeling stuck
I'm heartstruck, I'm heartstruck
By the lake where we fed the ducks
I'm heartstruck, I'm heartstruck

You never gave me a choice
But I still rejoice
Our love was the best thing
I'll ever have, yes

I want to hear your voice
I need to feel your noise
I would do anything to see your face one last time
I'm

Out of luck, I'm feeling stuck
I'm heartstruck, I'm heartstruck
By the lake where we fed the ducks
I'm heartstruck, I'm heartstruck
