“On a night like this with a woman like you everything should have been clear”. He didn't know why, she wouldn’t say but there was something in her voice that night. It took him to places he’d never been before. Then she asked him to stay. When We Collided They danced on the roof that night and the stars lit their silhouettes. ‘Cause cities like this will cast shadows of white. “Somewhere out there there has to be a place where stars shine brighter”, she said “On a night like this with a woman like you everything should have been clear”. When We Collided The morning came as they do with flames burning in to his eyes. When he turned to see she was gone, through the streets, over the bridge. The fading sense of something unreal stayed with him and troubled his heart. “On a night like this with a woman like you everything should have been clear.” When We Collided

“Sycamore Trees” I took her to the north With the sycamores and the frost in the air. I took down to the lakes, dark and blue. I put the wood in the stove and the cabin lit her white shadow. She wrote her words in my book and whispered her name to me. In the sycamore trees. Through winters the years passed, I went to the north. I burned my book in the stove and watched the smoke in the air. Now I hear her words in the sycamore trees.

Sorte Søer 03:49
“Sorte Søer” Jeg må krydse sorte søer snart. Hvis jeg vil slippe tankerne om dig. Sorte søer. Jeg har fundet veje uden om, men de fører til tanker om dig. Sorte søer.

Broken Choir 03:42
“Broken Choir” When you close your eyes what do you see? Driving through the mountains their shadows on me. I passed the sign of a drowned man’s face. When you close your eyes what do you see? A thousand wires and threads of gold. Of the silhouettes we were told. When you close your eyes what do you see? A thousand stars in silence over you and me. A thousand wires and threads of gold. The broken choir sings in the hall of strings of all the wicked things. The broken choir sings. When you close your eyes what do you see? Are you dancing in the darkness closer to me? A thousand wires and threads of gold. The broken choir sings in the hall of strings of the wicked things. It scatters everything.

“Alchemist Fire” In the alchemist fire I saw you taking shape. Through my amplifier I heard your voice on tape. You’re still in me. On your arm, the frequency. When I let my fingers slide I could hear the sounds of you and me You’re still in me. When the fire burst a silver flame shined. Only left with the white noise I pushed to rewind. You’re still in me.
