Copenhagen 03:08
Now my mind is fed up With obligations That I have not And all these things That I want are not going there ways I must be going to where I belong Now what Copenhagen taught me Is how to love again All these things I thought were lost But that were with me in the end Travelling around with such good friends They're the ones who are with me And all on who I depend It's hard to choose my ways Should I follow my heart Should I bind in and stay For all this pressure That I create I don't want to loose the people But can I trust on my faith? That this will happen That I'll become All I want to be so badly Finally liberated from feeling numb Now I can drop this pressure Let go of this pain Of being insecure And stop all the complain Now what Copenhagen taught me Is how to love again All these things I thought were lost But that were with me in the end Travelling around with such good friends They're the ones who are with me And all on who I depend

She likes the sunbeam through her lashes as she takes the early morning train. The conversations are her soundtrack, they seem to belnd into refrain. She gets attention from the men, which she answers with a polite smile. How they fall for her like shoolboys, see them stumbeling their way down the aisle. But she carries a picture of me in her pocket and she shows me her world form inside out It feels so good to be near her every step of the way and it makes me feel so proud Just to be around She finds her way through the city dancing her way through the streets. With the clicking of her heels, she seems to control every heartbeat. And the birds they float around her, singing songs as if she is their muse. Everywhere she goes, all the people seem to get confused. But she carries a picture of me in her pocket and she shows me her world form inside out It feels so good to be near her every step of the way and it makes me feel so proud Just to be around But she carries a picture of me in her pocket and she shows me her world form inside out It feels so good to be near her every step of the way and it makes me feel so proud Just to be around I get to be around Around, around yeah

My little room of secrets needs expansion It's been overfull for years now It's packed with tiny bits That I've been hiding In order just to please myself And I should quit the talking Oh I should remain silent I'm giving price the wishes that I've made And this all for the sake of loving I'm creeping, crawling All over again now And this all for the sake of loving And I should remain silent Oh I should quit the talking the talking the talking the talking oooh My little room of secrets needs expansion It's been overfull for years

Moving around on hands and feet Making our way across the street oh what an evening, you wouldn't believe me. If I told you what I thought doing our best not to get caught Oh this might be the best night of my life Getting the neighbours real pissed off They're screaming our names and to shut up But I'm not up for sleeping, no I won't be sleeping tonight I'm calling you names you've never heard I'm saying it twice just to be sure that you won't forget me I want to stay in your memory All of this dancing has got me blurred But one thing I just know for sure yes, this might be the best night of my life Getting the neighbours real pissed off They're screaming our names and to shut up But I'm not up for sleeping no I won't be sleeping. For once I'll give it all I got tonight we will celebrate our love But I'm not up for sleeping no I won't be sleeping tonight tonight tonight

Saw you standing alone Decided to walk you home Put my coat on your shoulder For a kiss on the cheek Tried to get me some sleep And as I watched you breath tried to look you in the eyes And I thought I saw you weep I wonder why would she cry Because I won't leave you twice On the same night my love I wondered about tonight And the things that ain't right But I won't leave you twice my love 'Cause it's you I want tonight Baby it's you that's by my side Saw you standing alone Decided to walk you home Put my coat on your shoulder For a kiss on the cheek I wonder why would she cry Because I won't leave you twice On the same night my love I wondered about tonight And the things that ain't right But I won't leave you twice my love 'Cause it's you I want tonight Baby it's you that's by my side

The Ocean 04:10
I'm on a ride upon the ocean I'm gonna built myself a home forgetting all about my troubles And the trouble we have know I'll built a garden on the seashore Place my memories in the shed And my house it will have one room Just a place to rest my head And I will just wait For the ocean For the ocean to set me free And I will just wait For the ocean To bring back my lover to me And I know water and the waves they know my name They just keep on calling Calling to get me away And I know the water The water It may wash away my tears And the waves they keep on calling While I'm waiting for you here And I will just wait For the ocean For the ocean to set me free And I will just wait For the ocean To bring back my lover to me And I will just wait For the ocean For the ocean to set me free And I will just wait For the ocean To bring back my lover to me I'm on a ride upon the ocean And I can feel the summer breeze I'm on a ride upon the ocean How I wish you were here with me
