Track Name: Drops
Drops from the ice which just melts in the air
Drops on the ice, they just flow like the air
Drops pry the ice, and it crashes through the air

Rise, seas will rise from within
Heat, it's the heat trapped within
And the storms send a warning
Of an ancient world's melting
Turquoise and blue floating up
Coming for us is the flood

Rise, seas will rise from within
Heat, it's the heat trapped within
When the ice song will still
Mighty oceans will kill
Staining the water with blood
Coming for us is the flood
Track Name: Always on your side
You feel it justified
And you're poised to start a fight

You shoot your arguments
Till the win is in your sight

The fight exhausts you
So you try to make it light

You feel it justified
So you start another fight

Soon you will see that it was all about your pride
Just remember I am always on your side

You say you're bending
And the strain will break your back

You need to change things
But you feel under attack

You've packed your bags up
And you're never coming back

You feel you're certain
And your train is on the track

Soon you will see that it was all about your pride
Just remember I am always on your side

Hush now
Baby I know
Hush now
There there you go

Of course you worry me
But I'll push away my fear

I know there'll come a day
When the fog you're in will clear

Your ship will come along
And you will want to steer

Look around and you will find
I'll be there to cheer

Don't you see that it was never for my pride
I remain for you as always on your side
Track Name: Don't talk
Don't talk to me don't
No, I don't understand

You say they're guests
They bring their mothers
And their children shouldn't be here

Don't talk to me don't
No, I don't want to hear

You didn't say that
You didn't do this
And yes you remember it well

It's ugly
It's bad
It's selfish
And sad
And it's terribly, terribly wrong
A story you spin
To mix with your gin
And explain all your darkness away
Explain all your darkness away

Don't talk Don't talk
No, don't talk

Don’t talk to me don’t
No, I’ve heard it before

You've felt mistreated
It's not your fault
And they'll never do it again


Don't talk to me don't
No, don’t say it again

It's always their fault
Your life is too hard
But you're never hard on yourself

Don't talk to me don't
No
Track Name: Guillaume Grassiant - Too little too late
Here I am, as I’ve messed it up again
Feels like I’m destined for nothing
I know It’s been a long time coming
I must now take the reigns

What was once a growing tree
Is now a stump for you to see
I really took you for granted
And I left you so jaded

Last minute kindness
Another proof of blindness
Blame it on fate
But it’s just too little too late

So please take me back
Oh please take me back
So please take me back
To that time that felt right
So please take me back
Oh please take me back
So please take me back

Here I am, a new person in the making
Building blocks for a new story
They say that choosing is refusing
I start anew but don’t forget why I was sorry

So please take me back
Oh please take me back
So please take me back
To when it felt just right
So please take me back
Oh please take me back
So please take me back
Track Name: Escape
There's no escaping what happened to me
I left the door locked, but he had the key
I don't know what he wanted
I don't know what he thought he'd get
But it wouldn't be me

You want to read the story
And you want it to be happy
Where the girl is such a beauty
And the guy never lies

It started off surprisingly well
He had the looks, I didn't know him well
Became my one and only
Then only he could be with me
That was his tell

You recognise the story
And you want me to be happy
That I will see it clearly
For the truth he denies

I lost who I was and never could please
It never was love, yet it turned into years
I finally was able
He finally released me
There would be more more tears

I know you know the story
You want it to end happy
Where nobody dies

There is no escaping what happened to me
I left the door locked, but he had the key
The door slammed
The knife shone
The blood ran
Then I was free
The end of me
Track Name: Frozen Form
I saw you standing there
A mess made of your hair
The trees were hanging low
Heavy from the snow
The water filled the air
Reflections, here and there
Time began to slow
Stop reverse the flow

Your face’s frozen form
Falls away
Your face’s frozen form
Falls away

I see the greyish blue
An independent hue
Your eyes are 48
The year I love to hate
Your iris overgrew
It seems you saw me too
You did not seem afraid
Yet you stepped into the shade

Your face’s frozen form
Falls away
Your face’s frozen form
Falls away

I didn’t even notice
I wasn’t even grieving
Surprising my senses
And just for a moment
I believed you were back

Your face’s frozen form
Falls away
Your face’s frozen form
Falls away

I saw you standing there
A mess made of your hair
The trees were hanging low
Heavy from the snow
The water filled the air
Reflections, here and there
Time began to slow
Stop reverse the flow
Track Name: We were young
I was cold
I came in for the shelter
Thinking of the weather
And of the ride home
My feet were numb

You were there
Sitting in the corner
Speaking to another
I could not hear
Your voice a whisper

We were young, Oh so young
We were running before the wind
We were young, Oh so young
We were headstrong
We knew we'd win

I could see
Your face had gotten older
Your hair a little grayer
But your eyes
They were the same
And you smiled
Feigned a little laughter
Spoke about your daughter
Your world had changed
You had a picture

But I remember the dreams of a life together
When we were bolder and we were better
And I believed
We would force the wheel
We'd reverse the odds
Push beyond the fear

So it is
Ordinary people
Living far too little
Our dreams discarded
But we remember

We were young, Oh so young
We were running before the wind
We were young, Oh so young
We were headstrong
We knew we'd win

We were ready and hungry to win
