Space Between Two Worlds Lyrics

“Summertime”


These are the days that I'll miss the most
These are the days when I haven't chosen to follow the world yet
These are the days that I have awoken
These are the days when I haven't spoken out against anything yet
Well the world may start tomorrow

But it's summertime, sixteen and finding all that is mine
Just here and now, carefree and floundering out of the spring
Into life, into life


So many things I need to see
So many things I need to become, come for me
And this is just the beginning
This is just when all the winning comes, comes, for me
The world can start tomorrow

Chorus

And tomorrow will be a memory, memory, one day, one day
And I hope that I will remember this, remember this, one day, one day, one day

But it's summertime, sixteen and finding all that is mine
Just here and now, carefree and floundering out of the spring

Chorus

Into life, into life
It's summertime


"Sweetly"


You are the dream I have to endure
I can hardly sleep now
This is the test I have yet to pass
I can hardly breath now

And it's hard enough to remember how to stand
And it's hard enough, just try and understand,
And speak sweet, sweet, sweetly
Speak sweet, sweet, sweetly

I've never liked chocolate or coffee
I can hardly start now
And I've always been taller than them
I can hardly stop now

Chours

Speak sweetly, speak sweetly

You are the water in my eyes
I can hardly cry now
You always thought we had to do without
I can hardly believe now

Chorus

Speak sweetly, speak sweetly
Oh, lalalalala, sweetly
Lalalalala, sweetly
Lalalalalala, sweetly
Oh

"Fountains"


Courting kings and queens
Counting knights and spies
Living in glass towers spinning lies
Simpletons and wise men
Jesters fooling fools
Workers working tools, building tools

Fountains shatter in the rain
Shapeless shadows in the rain


Vases hiding flowers
Faces draped in veils
Shields to the world before it fails
Shuttered doors and windows
Daises of stone
Drowning thorns in brambles all alone

Chorus

Beating hearts in silence
The crush of sound is lost
Somewhere all the while in darkness

Chorus 3x


"Happily Ever After"


She'll never be alone, she'll always have the souls
Of the people she's ruined by her side
It comforts her at night to know that something's there
Even if it doesn't care
'Cause all she wanted was to live
Happily ever after
But no one listened, no one paid attention
To her

She doesn't take excuses, she doesn't take reasons
Well nobody took them from her
She does what she does because someone has to be the villain
And no one ever cared about her anyway


She once was young but she never was beautiful
Like all the other girls
And everyone told her so, said “you'll never grow
To be as good as us”
See how easily she fell
She went down, down, down
She decided she would hate the world because
It had always hated her

Chorus

Was it too much to ask just to accepted
For all and everything she was
She tried, how hard she tried, but what was the use
When no one else would

Chorus


"Azure Sunshine"


Sit me down and look at me and tell me if I am
Who I seem
I'm not the kind to turn and run but I guess this time
I can't hold on
And everything is beautiful when it's new
But that fades

This is so long to Azure Sunshine
I'll see you one day and take it as a sign
But now it's good-bye like nevermore
You won't be seeing me round here, no, anymore


The bluest thing you've ever seen it lives in the sky
You know best, well so do I
And no sun or rain can wash or burn away
the clouds in my mind
The grass was green and what if we've already been
On the other side

Chorus

Wipe away the tracks of your rule
So fly away to some other fool
As I walk away
You might hear me say

Chorus 3x


"Battlefields of Clarity"


And here we go
This is nothing new
Every one has her time
And it is here for you
But you're scared 'cause you don't know
If or when this will pass
And we all are
Just grains of sand in the hourglass

And you're standing wounded on the battlefields of clarity
Wondering if you'll make it out and why you can't see
Stumble your way, blind from the fray
And all you can do is wait, wait


It is not your fault
It's not because of the choices you made
And I think you'll find
It's part of the fight that no one can evade

Chorus

This story is old
And it has come to an end
But it's nowhere near
Over this is just where it makes a bend
And I hope one day you'll wake
And find it was all for the better when

You were standing wounded on the battlefields of clarity
Wondering if you'd make it out and why you couldn't see
Stumble your way, blind from the fray
And all you could do was wait, wait, wait, wait

And here we go


"Invisible"


What day is it anyway
I lost count 'round about
Last year or somewhere in there
I have my doubts
And lately I've felt something's not right
Not right at all

Would you tell me that all what's important isn't passing by
Would you tell me I'm not missing out, I feel like I'm
Invisible, you are living
Invisible, I am watching
Invisible, oh

All the friends who I never see
Say to me “come be
Here with us”
Would I pay my identity
And lately I've felt this is not right
Not anymore

Would you tell me that all what's important isn't passing by
Would you tell me I'm not missing out, I feel like I'm
Invisible, you are living
Invisible, I am watching
Invisible, oh

Would you tell me that all I want isn't passing by
Would you tell me I'm not missing out, I feel like I'm
Invisible, you are living
Invisible, I am watching
Invisible

Would you tell me that this is it, and nothing's passing by
Would you tell me I'm not missing out, I feel like I'm
Invisible, you are living
Invisible, I am watching
Invisible, oh

What day is it anyway
I lost count


"Afterglow"


Can you feel the sunrise, can you feel the dawn
I will write this then I'll be gone
Will I find myself here again
That will remain to be seen
All my things are packed away
Leaving me no grounds onto delay
I will close the door for the last time
And make a hard line
For the future that is mine

And I won't wait for something to tell me
“Don't do it, please don't go”
I am running in the morning afterglow


This is goodbye, this is hello
I am changing all I know
Everything withstanding I can't back out now
And would I want to anyhow

Chorus

I had good reason when I made my decision
What is waiting, will I be satisfied
Will I regret what I did decide
Either way I am tied

And I won't wait for something to tell me
“Don't do it, please don't go”
I am running in the morning, oh
Won't wait for something to tell me
“Don't do it, please don't go”
I am running in the morning afterglow
Afterglow


"Never Be The Same"


I didn't understand when it happened
As away we drove
Forgot to take one last look
Now it's gone for good

And I know it'll never be the same
And I know it'll never be the same
Again


This silence is real that I feel
Not a word
And now I find there's no rewind
Full fast forward

Chorus

Foolish to think we wouldn't sink
Beneath the sea
Forget that every single thing
Is tied to you and me

Chorus


"Unbreakable"


I cannot move from this spot, I am stuck
I've lost and now I lack the will it takes to walk
And I was happier unknown
Nothing's set yet in stone

And here I stand
With open heart and open hands
Be careful
With me world, I'm not unbreakable


My power only reaches as far as who I am
I can't control how others see me or what someone's already done
And I am who I am but I will hide
If you try to convince me otherwise

Chorus

I'm not defenseless but all I've got's a picket fence
Somewhere between wisdom and innocence
I've seen my friends go from sharpened sticks to cavalry
I'm not nervous, just naive

Chorus


"The Happy Song"


Here's to trees, here's to sunlight
Here's to everyday
Here's to flowers growing on bushes
And getting soaked by the rain

And if you could define happy
You would find me


Here's to soap, and blowing bubbles
In the summertime
Here's to smiles, green grass and sea glass
And coming home

Chorus

Here's to wind and summer thunderstorms
And rainbows
Here's to teeth stained with blueberries
Not caring if it shows

Chorus

Bluebells and blues skies, ribbons and blue eyes
Peaches and mown hay, glitter and light grey
True friends and good food, sandcastles and firewood
Candle glow, first snow

Here's to sleep and the pull of the moon
And the stars above
Here's to life and a little something
They call love

Chorus

Happy, happy, happy


"The Wish"


Now it is beginning
Hold your breath
Now it is time for winning
Glory or death
And I can feel it in the air
That something, just can't describe

Fly, this is the wish upon my tongue
Oh go away, please don't go away
Be my reason to stay

Now we are losing
Falling back
And now's no time for consorting
With all you lack
And I can see it in your eyes
That everything you can't describe so

Fly, this is the wish upon my tongue
Just go away, please don't go away
Be my reason to stay, stay, stay


"Space Between Two Worlds"


Sparkling gowns and gleaming towers
Lights on the street, thirty stories high
Rush of sound, crush of urgency
Busy hurried lives, never ask why

Caught somewhere in the middle
Never seen
Not quite here, not quite there
The space between two worlds

Worn torn jeans in the dirt and flowers
Flat in the grass with the stars in the the sky
Wasting time, wasted away
Just because you never asked why

Caught somewhere in the middle
Never seen
Not quite here, not quite there
The space between two worlds
The space between two worlds
The space between two worlds
