Lyrics

God knows I tried

Written By: Christina Groth/Chief 1

Seing through hurt and betrayal
Try to past this crying time
Seems like I can´t get my mojo working
I´ve spent it all very last nickel and dime

It´s closing time
Closing in on me

And god knows I tried
to keep my sanity and pride
so hard when all is said and done
So tell me how could I go so wrong ?
Yearh how can I go so wrong ?

Seing through lies and commotions
trying to find one single compromize
Picking up the pieces but everything is broken
Still a blue blue tear fills these sadden eyes...

It´s closing time
Closing in on me

And god knows I tried
to keep my sanity and pride
so hard when all is said and done
So tell me how could I go so wrong ?
Yearh how can I go so wrong ?

Open

Written By: Christina Groth/Chief 1

Open up your little fortress
Smell them pretty roses
Taste that sweet ole morning dew
everything will happend
you´ll get little bitty doses
some come in red some
some make you blue
some are passing through

So what do you need ?
what do you need ?
one hollow shot of all there is
does it make you feel ?
what do you need ?
what more do you need ?
when everything is in your hands
nothing sets you free

You´ll wake up one morning
sunshine in your eyes
this beauty of nothing more or less
will take you by surprise
Time cannot heal
if your soul cannot feel
those tiny drops of simplicity
made out of something real

So what do you need ?
what do you need ?
one hollow shot of all there is
does it make you feel ?
what do you need ?
what more do you need ?
I gave you all that I could
So what do you need ?

Kiss your demons away

Written By: Lars Pedersen/Christina Groth

Kiss your demons away (L.Pedersen/C.Groth)

(Let me wrap you in yellow)

Won´t face the world that surrounds us
Guess you´re no longer trying
Come lay down beside me
Hand me your fears
Wrap me in yellow skies
With you my hope
So let´s give it all
I´m lost in you
Let me dive into

If your sun fades away
I´ll do all just to make it shine
Precious one,it´s ok
I´ll be here to kiss your demons away
I´ll be there to kiss your demons away

Over suburbian dark clouds
On a cosmic blanket we´re flying
Don´t worry my baby
I´ll take you there
Wrap me in yellow skies
Tonight´s the night we´ll fly

If your sun fades away
I´ll do all just to make it shine
Precious one,it´s ok
I´ll be here to kiss your demons away
I´ll be there to kiss your demons away
