Lyrics

When will you be around

Written By: Uros Nikolic

When will you be around

I am yearning
My heart is burning
Everything's turning
To you

Now you have gone away
Without knowing what I feel
Even if it's something I can't say
I still want you near

chorus:
When will you be around
When will you be around
In my daydreams I pray
You will come today
When will you be around

When will you be around
When will you be around
In my daydreams I pray
You will come today
And you'll be around

My life is tangled from strong distraction
You're on my mind in everything I do
And though I'm caught with such attraction
I'm not getting closer to you

chorus:

Aperture for light

Written By: Uros Nikolic

Aperture for light

Time after time scenes of the past
And within them I hear a call of distance
It drags me away to a safe, deserted place
Where no one can see behind my face

Out there nobody comes near
But what do I gain when there is nothing to fear
We cannot hide our scars without living a lie
So to this mask I say goodbye

chorus:
Gap in the heart torn
Entrance to reborn
Aperture for light

Brightening my soul
Right through my hearts’ hole
Comes bursting of life

Satisfaction isn't to fake
Hurt is not to escape
For some of us the fulfillment is achieved only through pain
Under black clouds the sunlight is revealing a new day
With loneliness gone away

chorus:

Crack in the heart
Became a part
Of a relief

Life giving source
Is what was once
A well of grief

Crevice inside
Opened my mind
Delivering me

Bear in this strife
That brightens life
A way to be free

chorus:

Loving you

Written By: Uros Nikolic

Loving you

Today another cry
And another try
To make it dry
It gives us something to forget

And we get hurt inside
From things we said
Or just our pride
Either way a reason to regret

chorus:
I know I can't stop loving you
While in this place
I might as well be strong
And there's nothing that I can't do
'Cause my heart knows
That loving you cannot be wrong

When we're both crossing line
Should I deny
Must you reply
Over that line someone is to blame

We're playing on the minds
Searching for truth
But no one finds
Well i didn't know it was never inside this game

chorus:

This is us wasting time
With our bad days
Our biting rhyme
I think that we should just close this door

And if there's damage done
We can regenerate
And make it gone
'Cause we have done it many times before

chorus:

Waiting in the shadow

Written By: Uros Nikolic

Waiting in the shadow

Waiting in the shadow
We’re waiting in the shadow
For future dawn

Where are we heading
Will we be better tomorrow
That defines us all
If we can’t get there yet
Should we be waiting
Waiting in the shadow

Waiting in the shadow
We’re waiting in the shadow
For future dawn
People seem so shattered
We all seem so shattered
When hope is gone

When the repeating of history
Is all we know
Should this be our goal
Will the same tomorrow
Become our only goal
Ask yourself
What is our goal

Waiting in the shadow
We’re waiting in the shadow
For future dawn
People seem so shattered
We all seem so shattered
When hope is gone
