Track Name: Fairbanks
I feel you whispering lies into my ear
Scratch me with your sharp claws
Sat on the bus beside me and I won't forget
You stoke my leg under my pleated skirt

Chorus
Who told you you could come into my room at night?
I feel your touch but I forgot your voice again
Hey Mr. Memories how I wish you'd disappear
You brake into my head and wreck all that's there


I hear you breathing when I close my eyes
Bite me with your sharp jaws
We got lost in the ocean and I won't forget
The sun went down as we walked home

Chorus x2
Who told you you could come into my room at night
I feel your touch but I forgot your voice again
Hey Mr. Memories how I wish you'd disappear
You brake into my head and wreck all that's there
Track Name: Madness
We swam in blue skies, we danced under rain
Sugar crystals running through your veins
My head's a blank page you'll paint with unnamed colours
City's jealous of the light in your eyes
You hair's a fun fair on a summer day
Sun melts your lipgloss
Your high heels love that beat


Madness, baby you're insane
You fly in pink skies and your wings never break
Madness, because you're fire and rain
Rest on dark clouds and sun shines again

Chorus
Danced on tables, got lost in the woods, drive fast cars my baby
Danced on tables, got lost in the woods, drive fast cars my baby
[...] you bring me back to

Two little smashed dolls, sweet deadly poison
Your worst nightmare, undeniable
Your head's a 1920 projection
Rain falls on your eyes, black rivers on your face


Madness, baby you're insane
You fly in pink skies and your wings never break
Madness, because you're fire and rain
Rest on dark clouds and sun shines again

Chorus
Danced on tables, got lost in the woods, drive fast cars my baby
Danced on tables, got lost in the woods, drive fast cars my baby

We swam in blue skies, we danced under rain
Sugar crystals running through your veins
My head's a blank page you'll paint with unnamed colours
City's jealous of the light in your eyes
You hair's a fun fair on a summer day
Sun melts your lipgloss
Your high heels love that beat

Chorus
Danced on tables, got lost in the woods, drive fast cars my baby
Danced on tables, got lost in the woods, drive fast cars my baby
Track Name: Cotton Candy
Your hands tell me things I've never heard before
Your arms are the safest walls I've ever been between
You'll never know what the words coming from your mouth
mean to me

Chorus
Because you stick to me you're my drug
I can see the light in every city when you open your eyes
You run through my blood you take me back to paradise

I'm lost inside your smile and I've never felt this way
Things I won't tell you are the ones that I will show you
'Cause you're my sweetest dreams, my cotton candy

Chorus x2
Because you stick to me you're my drug
I can see the light in every city when you open your eyes
You run through my blood you take me back to paradise


Remember everything we've built, so strong my cotton candy

Chorus x2
Because you stick to me you're my drug
I can see the light in every city when you open your eyes
You run through my blood you take me back to paradise
My cotton candy
Track Name: Pandora
You used to hold me tight and sing songs by my wooden cot
My memories won't fade 'cause now you're inside of a box
(Inside of a box)
You used to take me back where troubles turned into dust
I can't stop thinking your whole life ended up in the same
place
(Inside of a box)

Chorus
I close my eyes and I get lost in the emptiness of the
heartbeats
Locked inside my head
I'm just a puppet living under four strings
Taking me to places where I'll never belong

You used to take me back where we could both touch the
sun
I wanna open it 'cause it ended up in the same place
Beside old books, on top of a shelf
Your hands, your eyes, your smile
Pandora go home

Chorus x2
I close my eyes and I get lost in the emptiness of the
heartbeats
Locked inside my head
I'm just a puppet living under four strings
Taking me to places where I'll never belong
Track Name: Mr. Ponytail
Your voice took me to the darkest places
You walked in but never knocked on the door
I don't know where she found your light 'cause your heart is rusted
Told you she'd realise that you're just full of fear and shame

She said this wouldn't change but why are you cursing me?
You made me go insane your words started controlling me

Chorus
You left scars on my soul I still feel even though you're gone
Cause they burn me
Just like the cigarettes you smoked while she danced all alone
Inside four walls you used to call home
By hate and rage your heart's been blown and she will never know
'Cause she's blinded
So Mr.Ponytail don't come back stay where you belong
Inside four walls you used to call home


She said this wouldn't change but why are you cursing me?
You made me go insane your words started controlling me

Chorus x2
You left scars on my soul I still feel even though you're gone
Cause they burn me
Just like the cigarettes you smoked while she danced all alone
Inside four walls you used to call home
By hate and rage/fear and shame your heart's been blown and she
will never know
'Cause she's blinded
So Mr.Ponytail don't come back stay where you belong
Inside four walls you used to call home
Track Name: Hendrick's
You never apologised, did you?
You never realised how cold that house was
He cut me with his words so many times
Why didn't you stop him?
I lost my hope
How can I pretend everything's okay?

Chorus
You're the castle I've lived in for so many endless nights
Now the dragon hurting me is your best friend?
Fairy tales don't exist here
They drown in bottles of "Hendrick's"
Well, I wrote a new story and you're not in it


You had to come back
You thought I didn't know how it would end up?
Oh I'm telling you I did
I lost my hope
It's ten to ten and you're still not here

Chorus

You're the castle I've lived in for so many endless nights
Now the dragon hurting me is your best friend?
Fairy tales don't exist here
They drown in bottles of "Hendrick's"
Well, I wrote a new story and you're not in it


Remember what you told me
Oh you could've changed it
You never apologised did you?
How can I pretend everything's ok?


You're the castle I've lived in for so many endless nights
Now the dragon hurting me is your best friend?
Fairy tales don't exist here
They drown in bottles of "Hendrick's"
Well, I wrote a new story and you're not in it anymore
Track Name: Sugar
Do you still knit scarves?
Walk around the beach and light fires?
Drive your yellow car?

Chorus
I've been wondering all these years
Are you swimming in the sea?
Does wind play with your hair at all?

Could you make it to the jungle?
Is lemonade still sweet?
Comb your hair back?

Chorus
I've been wondering all these years
Are you swimming in the sea?
Does wind play with your hair at all?
Track Name: Wasting Time
I won't forget those eyes
It would've hurt less to freeze to death
My hands are tied
I can't be in prison for a lifetime, save me

We shout 'cause we know there's no going back
You wrote a letter and I read it every night
It's hell 'cause we know it's over this time
And all we were is now in black and white

Just let it go so we stop wasting time

You're taking off I see you flying high again
Your eyes hide pain it's hard living life this way
Won't work it out
Cause this fight's gonna last a while
Our weapons freeze but the heat is rising fast

I won't forget those eyes
It would've hurt less to burn in hell
Save me I need help
I can't be in prison for a lifetime, save me

Just let it go so we stop wasting time

You're taking off I see you flying high again
Your eyes hide pain it's hard living life this way
Won't work it out
Cause this fight's gonna last a while
Our weapons freeze but the heat is rising fast

Just let it go so we stop wasting time

I won't forget those eyes
It would've been worse to stay that way
You taught me well
I can't be in prison for a lifetime, save me
Track Name: Paula
She was a little girl, sat next to him in class
He had to go so they could meet again
They spent nights together staring at the sky
And the days went by and the big city was their shelter

Chorus 1
He looked at her and the big dark world suddenly wasn't the same
A star filled the sky with light made it feel so warm
He looked at her and the big dark world suddenly wasn't the same
"You're my star" He said.
"No matter where I'll be"

He flew 5000 miles, she drowned to find oxygen
They spent nights waiting for the impossible
But she closed her eyes and found light
In the middle of a storm x2

Chorus
He looked at her and the big dark world suddenly wasn't the same
A star filled the sky with light made it feel so warm
He looked at her and the big dark world suddenly wasn't the same
"You're my star" He said. x2
"Prettiest of all times, no matter where I'll be"

He looked around and the great big sky suddenly wasn't the same
He looked for light in a million stars and found loneliness instead
He looked around and the great big sky suddenly wasn't the same
"Where's my star?" He said. "Prettiest ever"
"You're my star" He said.
"No matter where I am
Track Name: NV
Your long fringe hides what terrified us
Your plastic smile's toxic


You played your games and won every time
But now's my turn to roll the dice

Chorus
When you're sobbing alone I wish I could be there
I'd smile like you did on that summer day
You found yourself lost in thought
Cause you know I can fight the weight of gravity


Oh I bet you miss me
Who's laughing now?
You played your games
Wave your kingdom goodbye


Did you think twice when you told me:
"Some of us work while others sing"

Chorus x2
When you're sobbing alone I wish I could be there
I'd smile like you did on that summer day
You found yourself lost in thought_
Cause you know I can fight the weight of gravity


Your dark eyes hide what terrified us
Your plastic heart's toxic

Chorus x2
When you're sobbing alone I wish I could be there
I'd smile like you did on that summer day
You found yourself lost in thought_
Cause you know I can fight the weight of gravity
Track Name: October
In October you could've let me go
I'm getting lost in the smoke coming from my mouth
Suddenly my eyes drowned in oceans of doubts
Sun sets too early I need you here

Chorus
In October you told me: "Breathe my air
Just fall asleep while I stroke your hair
And I'll cover you up with my warmest blanket"
In October you could've said goodbye
But you stood here right by my side
And I never knew you'd come back and hold my hand


I got home and little did I know
Your chest would still be the cave I'd hide in
Made a paper boat out of all of my pain
Moonlight's my friend 'cause now you're here

Chorus
In October you told me: "Breathe my air
Just fall asleep while I stroke your hair
And I'll cover you up with my warmest blanket"
In October you could've said goodbye
But you stood here right by my side
And I never knew you'd come back and hold my hand


Your trust is stronger than any thunder
Now that you're here I'm not afraid of the dark
Of the dark (mmmm) x2

Chorus
In October you told me: "Breathe my air
Just fall asleep while I stroke your hair
And I'll cover you up with my warmest blanket"
In October you could've said goodbye
But you stood here right by my side
And I never knew you'd come back and hold my hand
