Track Name: Intro
In his heart
he fell in love
with this girl
he took her hand
and he showed
places to hide
Track Name: Hazel Wood
She went out to the hazel wood
because a fire was in her head
and cut and peeled a hazel wand
but couldn't find the truth

She went out to the hazel wood
because a fire was in her head
She turns her eyes and disappears
Shuts her mouth, it's not happening

So here we are whispering
our words grow numb
Still we are trying to hold on
while we run

He went out to the hazel wood
because a fire was in his heart
but he couldn't keep the gathered wood
Couldn't tell the truth

And here we are whispering
our words grow numb
Still we are trying to hold on
while we run

She went out to the hazel wood
because this fire in her heart
Someone lit it in the past
so she hid her heart away
Track Name: New
Now grab your feet and leave the things behind that you put inside this box, this life
it's quite all right that you are longing for a place to stay in time,
but now the time is right
My eyes are mine

My heart upon your shoulders,
can I count upon your never-ending trust?
It's there when I will not be with you
Running through this maze, it is the place that we have met
My eyes are mine

If I go back to the land I know
I hope that you will come follow

I hoped this place would vanish all my fears and that my feet will take the steps
into this life without a name, a house of light, a frame to hide behind
My eyes are mine

The sea within my ears it's like a never-ending stream
It fades, all that is not here with me
Memories that we've made will always play beneath the waves
My eyes are mine

If I go back to the land I know
I hope that you will come follow
Track Name: Heart
Touch me with your skin
I'll keep my tears inside
and hide the truth
Don't you wish we could
I would

Hit me with your fist
I'll keep the blood inside
and hide this pain
Lock it inside
and head back

Push me underground
I take this time to feel the soil fall down
A seed will know
it has to grow

Erase me from your life
and take the time to activate your light
Don't you wish we could
do that alone
Track Name: Flowers
We picked flowers
pricked them on the wood
to protect you from the cold
The night will take you down
into the ground

You built a wall of wood
I wish I could get through to you

My dreams are all for you
You know I do love you
I do
