Think I got it right
you put up a fight
questioning everything I do
dear society
you don’t seem to mind

I change my hair
you don’t approve
change what I wear
and you seem to lose
all the good manners that your parents ever taught ya

Prechorus 1
But still I can’t say that I don’t care at all
I just wanna make it end

Chorus 1
Why does my picture fade to grey when they don’t see the colors
why do I listen to myself through the others’ ears
why do I care ’bout what they say, well I don’t know
if it’s just my luck
I can’t pull that plug
well you’re right that sucks
I wish I didn’t give a… damn
I wish I didn’t give a damn

Verse 2
There’s no reason why
I should ever be tied
to the others minds
but I still falter, I falter, I falter
Do I have to reboot my life again
just to get the trojan horse out of my head?
can it really be that hard to get me virus-free?
See, now I’m gonna make it end

Chorus 2
Why does my picture fade to grey when they don’t see the colors
why do I listen to myself through the others’ ears
why do I care ’bout what they say, well I don’t know
if it’s just my luck
I can’t pull that plug
well you’re right that sucks
I wish I didn’t give a damn

Bridge
now I’m gonna cut these wires
and Im’ma walk without a training wheel
you’ll no longer be my puppeteer
This period has expired of blindly going after you in fear
I won’t back down, I’ll stand my ground and leave this prison now

Chorus 3
Why does my picture fade to grey when they don’t see the colors
why do I listen to myself through the others’ ears
why do I care ’bout what they say, well I don’t know
if it’s just my luck
I can’t pull that plug
well you’re right that sucks
I wish I didn’t give a damn

Verse 1
It’s a sleepless night
I’m wide awake but yet I dream you’re by my side
as you lay there, like a feather
and it feels so divine
that you can hold this perfect moment for a while
and then it’s gone
gone forever

Chorus 1
I’ll be waiting till the last dark cloud has dried (Cloud has dried)
and I’ll be there for you
though I can not hold you in my arms tonight
I’ll be standing in the spot where we looked
into each other’s eyes
and used to tell our lonely hearts goodbye

Verse 2
And you get lost in me
as much as I get lost in you
so I just don’t, I don’t get
this separation
Cause we were meant to be
there is nothing between us but the time
you’re about to spend in Costa Rica
but still, you’re so far away

Chorus 2
I’ll be waiting till the last dark cloud has dried (Cloud has dried)
and I’ll be there for you
though I can not hold you in my arms tonight
I’ll be standing in the spot where we looked
into each other’s eyes
and used to tell our lonely hearts goodbye

Bridge
Is it justice
what you call this
when you’re so close to heaven and then fall down
on the hard ground
and you scream loud
Is this the way it should go on?
Is this the way that you want it to be?

Chorus 3
I can’t wait until the last dark cloud has dried (Cloud has dried)
and I won’t be there for you
Cause you were not for me, you didn’t even try
I can finally leave the spot where we last
looked in each other’s eyes
and used to tell our lonely hearts goodbye

Verse 1
Ain’t no day passing by without me longing
to get out and explore the whole world
but you don’t seem to like the idea that I
might be gone, and I don’t want you to hurt

Verse 2
A wise person back then used to tell me
all that happens to you has its worth
and that all has meaning
the later you see it, the harder it might seem at first

Chorus 1
And I know that it’s hard, yeah I know it’s a change,
how letting go of someone leaves a void
But I want you to know that no matter how far I’m away,
I’ll stay your little boy

Verse 3
You were there just when I needed you most
picked me up when I stumbled and fell
But now that I can stand without anyone’s hand,
now’s the time for me to ring freedoms bell

Chorus 2
And I know that it’s hard, yeah I know it’s a change,
how letting go of someone leaves a void
But I want you to know that no matter how far I’m away,
I’ll stay your little boy
And I want you to know that no matter how much I’ll grow up,
I’ll stay your little boy

Verse 4
I feel like my hourglass is broken
cause the sand has run out way too fast
And it puts me in tears as I look for the years, that
without us all noticing, passed

Chorus 3
And I know that it’s hard, yeah I know it’s a change,
how letting go off someone leaves a void
But I want you to know that no matter how far I’m away,
I’ll stay your little boy
And I want you to know that no matter how much I’ll grow up,
I’ll stay your little boy
And I want you to know that no matter how much I’ll grow up,
I’ll stay your little boy

Verse 1
Tomorrow must be some great place where happiness is stored
Cause it’s the time that people say,
they’ll do everything they’ve never done before

Prechorus 1
It is a rat’s race, where people turn to grey,
looking for a part inside of them that’s strong enough
and not afraid to say

Chorus
I wanna leave
I wanna leave this time
I wanna leave this cell and find a place to thrive
And I will not falter as I leave through this door
Cause I don’t wanna run in circles anymore

Verse 2
The boundaries of yesterday won’t ever come apart
until we take our chance to weigh the anchors of our hearts

Prechorus 2
Now this regression is the calm before the storm,
always looking for another day, another year,
another time to bring it on

Chorus
I wanna leave
I wanna leave this time
I wanna leave this cell and find a place to thrive
And I will not falter as I leave through this door
Cause I don’t wanna run in circles anymore

Bridge
Why does no one understand that it is never too late
to finally break from all your covers, so you can make a change
cause it’s only you yourself who’s gonna stand in your way,
fly away, away

Chorus
I wanna leave
I wanna leave this time
I wanna leave this cell and find a place to thrive
And I will not falter as I leave through this door
Cause I don’t wanna run in circles anymore

Verse 1
Give me a spyglass
my vision’s blurring
I feel so small, like a beetle in the grass
Give me a blank piece
I’ll draw you my dreams
with watercolors on the glass

Prechorus 1
But the more of those you’ll find
the more it shatters mine

Chorus
So would Superman be super
if everybody else could fly,
lift a mountain with one arm
or shoot laser beams out of their eyes
Tell me how to be the hero
in a world where everybody can
Tell me how to walk my way
if I will never be more than
OK

Verse 2
I’m only human
my failures proved it
but in the end, all we’re looking for is love
But as they rise all
it feels like I fall
so far down, onto the ground, so tell me now

Chorus
So would Superman be super
if everybody else could fly,
lift a mountain with one arm
or shoot laser beams out of their eyes
Tell me how to be the hero
in a world where everybody can
Tell me how to walk my way
if I will never be more than

Bridge
OK
Why can’t I walk when others run (it makes me crawl)
see them fly leaves me stunned (don’t watch me fall)
Don’t watch me fall

Chorus
So would Superman be super
if everybody else could fly,
lift a mountain with one arm
or shoot laser beams out of their eyes
Tell me how to be the hero
in a world where everybody can
Tell me how to walk my way
if I will never be more than
OK

Chorus
So would Superman be super
if everybody else could fly,
lift a mountain with one arm
or shoot laser beams out of their eyes
Tell me how to be the hero
in a world where everybody can
Tell me how to walk my way
if I will never be more than
Tell me how to walk my way
if I will never be more than
OK

More than OK

Verse 1
he was one hell of a dancer
but one day his feet just wouldn’t move
and he was one hell of a writer, but did he know,
that one day his fingers would get loose

Prechorus 1
and sometimes I can’t help but wonder if their fate will be my lead
if everything I live and die for will just decay as naturally
cause every single hour’s colored red by job and family
and it won’t stop

Chorus
Is it true what all the other people always say
better live your life now, cause someday it’s gonna change,
will I still be the same?
When I’m all grown up and the years have passed, is there any way to
figure out if all this passion lasts,
well I hope I can keep
the flame

Verse 2
it’s quite a hard thing to discover
but hey, I might just get used to this
the way I chase my dreams ain’t never gettin’ lost
all that’ll change is preferences

Prechorus 2
and sometimes I can’t help but wonder
why fears and worries take my lead
what makes me scared that all I live for
will just decay as naturally
or that I’ll fail to make the fire remain ablaze inside of me

Chorus
Is it true what all the other people always say
better live your life now, cause someday it’s gonna change,
will I still be the same?
When I’m all grown up and the years have passed, is there any way to
figure out if all this passion lasts,
well I hope I can keep

Bridge
What if I won’t even notice the way I slowly suffocate
below this blanket made of roses
while all my dreams just pass away
Feels like no one’s here to guide me
through this ocean of unknowns
Will I stay?
Will I fade?

Chorus
Is it true what all the other people always say,
better live your life now, cause someday it’s gonna change,
I will always be me
When I’m all grown up and the years are gone I will always find a way to
carry on
and I hope I can keep
I hope I can keep
yeah I hope I can keep
the flame
