Track Name: When We Collided
“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
Track Name: Sycamore Trees
“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.
Track Name: Sorte Søer
“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.
Track Name: Broken Choir
“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.
Track Name: Alchemist Fire
“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.
