- LyricsSitting in a corner all alone,
staring from the bottom of his soul,
watching the night come in from the window, window
It'll all collapse tonight
the fullmoon is here again
- LyricsI'm home again, I won the war, and now I am behind your door.
I tried so hard to obey the law, and see the meaning of this all.
Remember me? Before the war.
I'm the man who lived next door.
- LyricsRemember when we used to look how the sun sets far away?
And how you said: "this is never over"
I believed your every word and I guess you did too
But now you're saying : "hey, let's think this over"
You take my hand and pull me next to you, so close to you
- LyricsWhat the hell are you standing there for,
expecting me to help you, when I'm down myself
Waiting my saviour, my world is flooding over, there's no room for air,
I can't breathe, I would give a kingdom for one more day
I'd give - a kingdom
- LyricsDana, my darling, I'm writing to you.
Cause your father passed away, it was a beautiful day
And I don't want to bother You anymore,
I used to hope you'd come back
But not anymore Dana.
