Track Name: Copenhagen
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
Track Name: She Carries a Picture
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
Track Name: Little Room of Secrets
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
Track Name: I'm Not Sleeping
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
Track Name: Walk You Home
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
Track Name: The Ocean
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
