1. SO WRITE SO WRONG

On the move, on the run
As it used to be
Is it fear, is it faith
That is leading me
Straight ahead, miles away
From the misery of wasted years?

Turning down, switching off
All my memories
Cutting loose, leaving out
Friends and enemies
Every word, every face
Trying to forget while shifting gears

Can you tell me how
Can you tell me why
Anything you say
Seems to be a lie?
Can you tell me what
Made you change? So long!
Used to be so right
Now it feels so wrong

As I’m looking back in anger
Over this no man’s land
Trying hard to understand

Can you tell me how
Can you tell me why
Everything you’ve said
Seems to be a lie?
Never thought I’d leave
Place where I belong
Use to feel so right
Now it feels so wrong

Was it you, was it me?
I don’t really care
By the end of the day
Is it so unfair
To retreat and forget
All the promises you made? I know

If you do, if you don’t
As I heard them say
You’ll be damned
Only I did it anyway
Packing up, getting out
Really sorry, but I had to go

Can you tell me how
Can you tell me why
Everything you’ve said
Seems to be a lie?
Can you tell me what
Made you change? So long!
Used to feel so right
Now it feels so wrong

Now it feels so wrong
Over this no man’s land
Trying hard to understand

Can you tell me how
Can you tell me why
Everything you’ve said
Seems to be a lie?
Never thought I’d leave
Place where I belong
Use to feel so right
Now it feels so wrong, so wrong, so wrong

You can break my heart
You can break my soul
You can even say
That it’s all my fault
Go ahead, I see
You’re on a roll
But it felt so right

Can you tell me how
Can you tell me why
Everything you’ve said
Seems to be a lie?
Can you tell me what
Made you change? So long!
Used to feel so right
Now it feels so wrong

Can you tell me how
Can you tell me why
Everything you’ve said
Seems to be a lie?
Never thought I’d leave
Place where I belong
Use to feel so right
Now it seems so wrong

Can you tell me how
Can you tell me why
Anything you say
Seems to be a lie?
Can you tell me what
Made you change? So long!
Used to be so right
Now it feels so wrong

As I’m looking back in anger
Over this no man’s land
Trying hard to understand, understand

Can you tell me how
Can you tell me why
Anything you say
Seems to be a lie?
Never thought I’d leave
Place where I belong
Use to feel so right
Now it feels so wrong, so wrong


2. MAY YOU NEVER

May you never walk alone
Forgotten down this road, so lonely
One and only, far away
You’re never on your own
I’m crying out so long forever
May you never walk alone

I have been stuck behind this wobbly desk
For hours now
I don’t know how
And where to start, so pointless, so grotesque
A dire plight
But what to write
About you but I miss you so?
My mind is empty, here I go – here I go

May you never walk alone
Forgotten down this road, so lonely
One and only, far away
You’re never on your own
I’m crying out so long forever
May you never walk alone, walk alone

As twilight turned to dawn, an empty page
Was all I had
I’m going mad
What to remember, neither saint nor sage
Or just like me
So can’t you see?
Now as your image fades away
The only thing that’s left to say – left to say

May you never walk alone
Forgotten down this road, so lonely
One and only, far away
You’re never on your own
Who cares about what they’re saying?
Just hear me praying, listen

May you never be afraid
It doesn’t matter where you’re going
Without knowing either way
You’ll never be betrayed
I’m crying out so long forever
May you never walk alone, walk alone

I have been stuck behind this wobbly desk
For hours now
I don’t know how
And where to start, so pointless, so grotesque
A dire plight
But what to write?
It’s like every word’s been said before
So I can’t do it anymore – anymore – anymore – anymore

May you never walk alone
Forgotten down this road, so lonely
One and only, far away
You’re never on your own
Who cares about what they’re saying?
Just hear me praying, listen

May you never be afraid
It doesn’t matter where you’re going
Without knowing either way
You’ll never be betrayed
I’m crying out so long forever
May you never walk alone – may, walk alone
May you never walk alone – far away, on your own
May you never walk alone


3. HEART ON A PLATTER

Tie me down
Never let me go
‘Til the end of my days
Cut me loose
And before you know
I’ll be lost in a maze
Lift me up
To a higher ground
Elevate me and don’t
Let me down
‘Cuz I stick around
Right here on my own
My heart’s turning slowly to stone

Shake me up
Let me feel alive
While I’m sure that you will
Wear me out
Guess I would survive
Sign me up for that thrill
One step forward
It’s not so much
Yet I hope you won’t take
Two steps back
Cuz I’d loose my touch
It keeps me awake
So give me a break

My heart’s on a platter
So laugh up your sleeve
It’s easy, I know, but you might
Just try to give in, you
Could try to believe
My heart’s on a platter tonight

My heart’s on a platter
So laugh up your sleeve
It’s easy, I know, but you might
Just try to give in, you
Could try to believe
My heart’s on a platter tonight,
My heart’s on a platter onight

My heart’s on a platter
So laugh up your sleeve
But you might
Just try to give in, you
Could try to believe
My heart’s on a platter tonight

Heart’s on a platter tonight
Platter tonight
Laugh up your sleeve
Tonight


4. A TEAR IN THE RAIN

Yesterday
Is over, dead and gone
Cold and grey
So what’re you dwelling on? Dwelling on?
A fortune made and lost?
Just counting up the cost?
You better keep your fingers crossed

Storm is coming today
Well, get running
Fingers crossed
Keep on steering away
Disappearing – the rain

Time has come
For us to count the score
Tell me what
Have you been fighting for? Fighting for?
A little bit of fame?
Seems like a modest claim
No one will ever know your name, your name

Storm is coming – today
Well, get running
Off you go ball and chain, and chain
Keep on steering – away
Disappearing
Like a tear in the rain, the rain, the rain
Life’s been wasted, so far
Can you face it?
Does it drive you insane? Insane?
Scary feeling – you are
Disappearing
Like a tear in the rain, the rain, the rain

A little bit of fame?
A little bit of fame?
Seems like a modest claim
Seems like a modest claim
No one will ever know
No one will ever know
Your name, your name

Storm is coming – today
Well, get running
Off you go ball and chain, and chain
Keep on steering – away
Disappearing
Like a tear in the rain, the rain, the rain
Life’s been wasted, so far
Can you face it?
Does it drive you insane? Insane?
Scary feeling – you are
Disappearing
Like a tear in the rain, the rain, the rain

Storm is coming today
Well, get running
Keep on steering away
Disappearing
The rain
Life’s been wasted so far
Can you face it?
The rain
Scary feeling, you are
Disappearing
Fingers crossed


5. UNTIL THE DAY

Another year has passed
Another wrinkled page’s been turned
God knows, it’s not the last
I’ve learned, I’ve learned
I’ve learned to hold on tight
And how to make it on my own
But in the middle of the night
I’d moan

I’ll wait, wait until the day
My bleeding heart stops, until I pray
Is anybody up there? So guide me with thy grace
I’m getting ready just to see your face, your face

How come, you slipped away
And yet it feels you’re everywhere?
I miss you every single day
I swear, I swear

I’ll wait – wait – wait until the day – until the day
My bleeding heart stops, until I pray
Is anybody up there? So guide me with thy grace
I’m getting ready just to see your face
I’ll live – live – live until the sign – until the sign
Shows at my door, all the stars aligned
Then I’ll know what’s coming, a little price to pay
So I’ll be waiting right until the day – right until – right until the day

Another year has passed
Another wrinkled page is turned
How do I know it’s not the last?
I’ve learned, I’ve learned

I’ll wait – wait – wait until the day – until the day
My bleeding heart stops, but now I pray
Is anybody up there? So guide me with thy grace
I’m getting ready just to see your face
I’ll live – live – live until the sign – until the sign
Shows at my door, all the stars aligned
Then I’ll know what’s coming, a little price to pay
I’ll be waiting right until the day, right until the day


6. RICHES TO RAGS

I’ve been around
Way too long to care or wonder
Why am I bound
To witness all this mess? I guess
Wherever you go, it’s the same
So I’m sure it’s a name of the game
If you’re quick on the trigger – quick on the trigger
Richer and bigger – richer and bigger
Stay any longer
Get a bit stronger
Hope for the best, it’s alright

You can save every dime
Hide or bury it all
But the higher you climb
Even harder you fall
Carry on, don’t be shy
Keep on stuffing these bags
In a blink of an eye
You’ll go riches to rags
Don’t forget!
Then again
Go ahead
Carry on, don’t be shy
Keep on packing these bags
In a blink of an eye
You’ll go from riches to rags

I’ve been around
Way too long to care or wonder
Who’s going down?
Who’s to blame or why? Oh, my
Do as you pleased, but watch out
Here’s what I’m talking about
Hurry, pick up you number – pick up you number
Who’s going under? – Who’s going under?
Look at these faces
Glittering places
There is no easy way out

You can save every dime
Hide or bury it all
But the higher you climb
Even harder you fall
Carry on, don’t be shy
Keep on stuffing these bags
In a blink of an eye
You’ll go riches to rags
Don’t forget!
Then again
Go ahead
Carry on, don’t be shy
Keep on packing these bags
In a blink of an eye
You’ll go from riches to rags

You can save every dime
Hide or bury it all
But the higher you climb
Even harder you fall
Carry on, don’t be shy
Keep on stuffing these bags
In a blink of an eye
You’ll go riches to rags

You can save every dime
Hide or bury it all
But the higher you climb
Even harder you fall
Carry on, don’t be shy
Keep on stuffing these bags
In a blink of an eye
Go from riches to rags
Don’t forget!
Then again
Go ahead
Carry on, don’t be shy
Keep on stuffing these bags
In a blink of an eye
You’ll go from riches to rags


7. WAY TOO LATE

Sometimes I feel so lost, so off the track
And yes, I know, there is no going back
Trying to remember that point of no return
When all those bridges burned

Somewhere in time, I am a little kid
No second thoughts, no matter what you did
There’s always someone to catch you if you’d fall
I know you’re nearby, can you hear my call? My call?

If I could hit rewind
Re-watch, relive, refine
Still waiting for a sign
Another chance to put the record straight
‘Cuz I’m no longer scared
To tell how much I cared
These words I should have shared
I know, I know, I know it’s way too late

If I could hit rewind
Re-watch, relive, refine
Still waiting for a sign
Another chance to put the record straight
‘Cuz I’m no longer scared
To tell how much I cared
These words I should have shared
I know, I know, I know it’s way too late

Years passing by
Yet this kind of wound never heals
Words can’t describe
The pain or the way that I feel

I know I’ve never been a perfect son
Forgive me for my living on the run
It’s the same old story, but now we’re worlds apart
I am so sorry if I broke your heart, your heart

If I could hit rewind
Re-watch, relive, refine
Still waiting for a sign
Another chance to put the record straight
‘Cuz I’m no longer scared
To tell how much I cared
These words I should have shared
I know, I know, I know it’s way too late

If I could hit rewind
Re-watch, relive, refine
Still waiting for a sign
Another chance to put the record straight
‘Cuz I’m no longer scared
To tell how much I cared
These words I should have shared
I know, I know, I know, I know it’s way, it’s way too late
It’s way too late
It’s way too late


8. MONOCHROME (Japan bonus)

(Instrumental)


8. HOW DO YOU KNOW (European bonus)

On the highest of mountains
On the shiniest throne
In a circle of fountains
Out of reach and all alone
Every move is majestic
Every word’s pure gold
As a simple domestic
I’m all ears, lo and behold

How do you – know what’s wrong and know what’s right?
How do you – let me ask you, inside

How do you know what’s wrong, what’s right?
How do you see the other side?
How do you feel night after night
Watching the darkness grow?
How do you know if it’s alright
Judging without a second sight?
How can you live in black and white?
How do you know? How do you know?

After years of rejection
You are finally there
Closest thing to perfection
Heart of stone, an empty stare
In the kingdom of madness
You’re an essence of good
Yet you’re drowning in sadness
A lonely soul misunderstood

How do you – know what’s wrong and know what’s right?
How do you – let me ask you, inside

How do you know what’s wrong, what’s right?
How do you see the other side?
How do you feel night after night
Watching the darkness grow?
How do you know if it’s alright
Judging without a second sight?
How can you live in black and white?
How do you know? How do you know? How do you know?

How do you know what’s wrong, what’s right?
How do you see the other side?
How do you feel night after night
Watching the darkness grow?
How do you know if it’s alright
Judging without a second sight?
How can you live in black and white?
How do you know? How do you know?

How do you know?
How do you feel?
How do you know if it’s alright
Judging without?
How can you live in black and white?
How do you know? How do you know?
