Lyrics

The Prey

Written By: Juanca Cardell (Odette)


The fear. Just run. Escape.
No sounds around.
The beast is coming to the town.
The night is dark. The fog is dense.
And now you’ve been trapped inside.

The sweat comes down across your face
while you try to go on.
But the faith has bring you
a brand-new day,
a better way.

How does it feel being the prey?

When you’re into the trance
don’t realize you have a chance.
Later you fall under his claws.
You’ve never felt so safe and sound.
Safe and sound.

Is then, you shout, you strive,
you fight to feel alive.
You stay, you try,
you’re not afraid to die.
You love, you care,
you move, you hope, you share.
You touch, you dare,
you wake , you breath, you stare.

How does it feel being the prey?

Castles

Written By: Juanca Cardell (Odette)

You and me.
We can build castles together,
some places to hide in forever.
Castles that would make our love born again,
and never get lost in time.

Gliding suns
are just turning on and off
the colour of the walls.
Walls that are used to forget our reality,
'cause never will turn back.

And then, when all the souls are dreaming,
bodies move into another dimension
where castles are built with feelings
and all the moments we lived are kept inside.

Wonderlands,
here now are no fears 'cause
rain is full of stars.
Lands that we have created on air
and float like kites in the sky.

And then, when all the souls are dreaming,
bodies move into another dimension
where castles are built with feelings
and all the moments we lived are kept inside.

Nets On Japan Air

Written By: Toni Morales (Odette)

About herself. She didn’t know a thing about herself.
She wasn’t able to admit that’s something easy.

About himself, he didn’t know a thing about himself.
He wasn’t able to admit that’s so perverse.

About themselves, nobody knew a thing about themselves. Crashing a lover scene no need to worry for.

Something as easy as cutting nets.

About a sin, all the story was about a sin.
We were left with the feeling of emptiness.
About themselves, nobody knew a thing about themselves. Crashing a lover scene no need to worry for.

Something as easy as cutting nets. Oh! Life.
Why did you put nets on Japan air? Divided love.
And looking around all the souls were singing.

Intermezzo

Written By: Juanca Cardell (Odette)

Here I’m alive. All has been a dream.
Life has never been so real.
Now I know, I’ve not lost my time.
What I’ve seen is real enough.

A dream upon the past
remembers me the last
thing you couldn’t face,
the future’s final day.

I’m trying to bring my light
to drive you out the fate’s side.
I want to hold you free.
The present is the key.

Hammers

Written By: Toni Morales (Odette)

Down the street, I know she won’t come back.
The present's bigger than the past
and clocks are showing no time left.

While she dreamed about me I was there.
A common love that came with fear
and turned my body inside out.

Down the street I know she won’t come back.
The present's bigger than the past
and all my steps I did for her
were wrong, pardon I do deserve.

I’ve been bleeding every weekday.
It seems hammers in my head.
Hammers in my head.

Short, the way into your open arms.
A stranger loved a hundred hearts.
The wounded one is what I got.

She replies with feelings that are deep.
Safe and close is what I keep.
Rescue me before I sleep away.
