Lyrics

One Last Time

Written By: Camillo

Don’t ever ask me if I’ll be around
Don’t ever ask me if I’ll leave or stay
This time I have to do things my own way
My own way

You never thought of us in the past
Did you believe that our love would last?
I guess there was no room for both of us
In the end

If I hold you one more time
Would you remember that once you were mine?

Do you remember when we had it all?
You must remind me, I just can’t recall
Didn’t take us long to let it fall
Fall apart

If I hold you one more time
Would you remember that once you were mine?
If I hold you one last time
Would you remember the time that you were mine?

If I hold you one more time
Would you remember that once you were mine?
If I hold you one last time
Would you remember the time that you were mine?

Don’t ever ask me if I’ll be around
Don’t ever ask me if I’ll leave or stay
This time I have to do things my own way

Hello

Written By: Camillo

Hello,how are you, how do you feel, are you alright
You know, I just wonder: do you feel lonely as I do tonight

Since you’ve been gone things are just the same
Just lonelyness and pain, I guess I miss our little fights

I want you, I need you
As the moon needs the starlight to brighten dark nights sky
I want you, I need you as a bird needs his wings
´Cos without them he can´t fly

Good-bye, that’s the last thing we´ve said, I guess we did lose our heads, we´ve lost it all
And all those little things, those tiny little things that didn´t matter but still made us fall

Can we get up can we learn to forgive
Can we still believe that there´s a reason to it all

I want you, I need you
As the moon needs the starlight to brighten dark nights sky
I want you, I need you as a fish needs his water
´Cos without it he can´t breath and he will die

hey, it´s so quiet in here, it is so good to feel you close to me
yes we did brake all the rules but we´re no longer fools now it´s just you and me

I want you, I need you
As the moon needs the starlight to brighten dark nights sky
I want you, I need you as a bird needs his wings
´Cos without them he can´t fly
I want you, I need you
I want you, I need you

Can't Breathe

Written By: Camillo

Can't breathe, wondering why I can't breathe, something wrong inside me
We used to be like sunrise, the sun's been down for so long
I've been searching for an answer, but found none

Can't breathe, I've got it all but can't breathe, I've got you but not really
There's something wrong about us, we just don't want the same from life
Don't see how we can make this work
I'm sorry

With you I'm not happy, but don't think that I blame you
It feels like my wings are tide and I can't fly, I need to fly

I like you like I always have, I don't want you to suffer
But if I do nothing we both will, we both will

Can't breathe, I've got it all but can't breathe, I've got you but not really
There's something wrong about us, we just don't want the same from life
Don't see how we can make this work
I'm sorry, so sorry

Maybe I should be free, why don't you just clear my way
Why don't you just let me be ruler of my day
Maybe I should be free, why don't you just clear my way
Why don't you just let me be ruler of my day
My day, my way

I can't breathe

Maybe I should be free, why don't you just clear my way
Why don't you just let me be ruler of my day
Maybe I should be free, why don't you just clear my way
Why don't you just let me be ruler of my day

My day, my way

Breathe

Godless

Written By: Camillo

What happened to this world, did we forget to love
I guess we trusted a little too much on the Guy above

Look what you have done, so easy to see
Left me all alone in this misery

I have lost my way, can’t find my way back
Sleeping everywhere, low as you can get

What happened to this world, did we forget to love
I guess we trusted a little too much on the Guy above

I forgot my name, my age who gives a damn
Got an empty bottle, my only friend

Sir will you excuse, spare me something to eat
I used to be on your side, I guess I lost my seat

What happened to this world, did we forget to love
I guess we trusted a little too much on the Guy above

What happened to this world, did we forget to love
I guess we trusted a little too much on the Guy above

What happened to this world, did we forget to love
I guess we trusted a little too much on the Guy above

Sorry

Written By: Camillo

What can I do
My heart won't let you go
Time went by but I still miss you so
I walk alone
I'm just an empty soul
Wandering like a ghost

Sorry for all I didn't say
For all I could not see
I would give up everything
To have you back
Here with me

Do you remember
How good we used to be
On every moment
I was there for you and you were there for me
Then it happened
I guess I took us for granted
And in a moment it was gone

Sorry for all I didn't say
For all I could not see
I would give up everything
To have you back
Here with me

I know I was wrong
I know that I've hurt you
Without you it makes no sense
Where I'm going to

Sorry for all I didn't say
For all I could not see
I would give up everything
To have you back
Here with me

Sorry for all I didn't say
For all I could not see
I will give up everything
To have you back
Here with me

(Sorry for all I didn't say)
(For all I could not see)
I will give up
I will give up
Everything

You'll Fly

Written By: Camillo

No more darkness in my life
No more tears or rainy days
No more loneliness or sleepless nights

She is gone, I'm on my own
Time is done with violence
My heart's broken but I will survive

Even If the sky comes falling on you (on you, on you)
Somehow you'll come out alive
No matter how hard they push you to the fall
Instead of falling you'll fly

Don't know how I got myself
Into this vicious game of guilt and pain
I just took the blame for all that went wrong

Things got darker day by day
thought that I would slowly grow insane
I started thinking wether I should live or die

Even If the sky comes falling on you (on you, on you)
Somehow you'll come out alive
No matter how hard they push you to the fall
Instead of falling you'll fly

When love turns to anger (love turns to anger)
You've got to move on (got to move on)

Even If the sky comes falling on you (on you, on you)
Somehow you'll come out alive
No matter how hard they push you to the fall
Instead of falling you'll fly

You'll fly...
