In Progress Lyrics

1. The Rain (4:53)
Ever since I can remember
Chasing love was just a way of spending time
'Til you came around
In you I found a shelter
No need for me to fight the great desire
I lost myself in your mesmerising smile

Tried to get your full attention
You diminished all the tension in me
With nothing more to say

Here comes the rain
The never ending flood
River of burning hope inside you
No need to be afraid
Here comes the rain
To wash away the stain
Takes away every doubt inside you
No need to fight it back

Here comes the rain
Filling you up with hope
Here comes the rain
Opening up your soul
Here comes the rain

Can't image all the days
I hunted what I thought was love
But I was wrong
Illusionized
You made me recall why
The chasing is a try to seal the hole
You healed the emptiness inside of me

You erased my false intensions
You diminished all the tension in me
With nothing more to say

Here comes the rain
The never ending flood
River of burning hope inside you
No need to be afraid
Here comes the rain
To wash away the stain
Takes away every doubt inside you
No need to fight it back

Here comes the rain
Filling you up with hope
Here comes the rain
Opening up your soul
Here comes the rain

Together we defeat every threat
Making movements we'll never forget
I'm safe under your shield
Living fantasy
2. Nature of the Game (5:00)
Left out going nowhere
Hiding from the rain
I'd never thought that you'd be back again
Deep in the arms of stranger
I took shelter from the rain
I was so sure that this must be the end

I heard their voices laughing
Back at my name
I saw their faces
Staring at me in vain

When our world's set on fire
And our love controls the flame
Nothing else will take us higher
It's the nature of this game
When our world's set on fire
And we stand right next to the flame
It's our human nature
That's the nature of this game

I didn't dare remember
It was you who set me free
I couldn't break away from my own chains
I lost my faith to anger
To see is to believe
Now I will never close my eyes again

Familiar places passes by like a train
Forgotten faces starts to show once again

When our world's set on fire
And our love controls the flame
Nothing else will take us higher
It's the nature of this game
When our world's set on fire
And we stand right next to the flame
It's our human nature
That's the nature of this game

Hold me now
And don't ever let me go

Just take my hand, guide me
Into the great unknown

I hear some voices
Still remember my name
Forgotten faces
Starts to show once again

When our world's set on fire
And our love controls the flame
Nothing else will take us higher
It's the nature of this game
When our world's set on fire
And we stand right next to the flame
It's our human nature
That's the nature of this game
3. Once Again (5:00)
Never knew that it would hurt so much
To burn and to lose when everything's over
Never knew that time would be so rough
Once it's over

Never thought that I would miss your touch
Sounds of your voice
Your head on my shoulder
Never thought that it would be so tough

So I won't take down my walls
I deny, I lie

Just to stand, right by your side
Through sleepless nights
Through wrongs and rights

Stop pretend, rebuild us again
Let's be drowned by the flames of love
Once again

Hear the echoes of my broken heart
Pieces of you still aching in circles
Never thought that it would be so hard
Once it's over

Always felt we could defeat the pain
With oceans of hope
No misunderstandings
Never thought our bond would turn to chain

So I won't break down my walls
I deny, I lie

Just to stand, right by your side
Through sleepless nights
Through wrongs and rights

Stop pretend
Rebuild us again
Let's be drowned by the flames of love
Once again

So I won't tear down my walls
I deny, I lie
4. Never Love Again (4:13)
Turn off the lights, shut every door
And leave it all behind
Promise yourself this time
There won't be no second chance

Hold back the tears, you kept for so long
Just hold out and be strong
'Cause this time
Nothing can change your mind

So if you feeling lonely
And you can't live without his touch
(Baby) remember to stay

Too late, no cards left to play
Love don't work that way
Though you always be my friend
There no more to say, and nothing to prove
The memories remain
But I'll never love again

Tear down the walls
Straight to the floor
And watch it all go down

Nothing can stop you now
You're running a one-way street

Don't you be scared
There's nothing to fear
Freedom bells will toll
From now on, you're finally in control'

So when he say he needs you
And he can live without you love
Remember you said

Too late, no cards left to play
Love don't work that way
Though you always be my friend
There no more to say, and nothing to prove
The memories remain
But I'll never love again

When the sadness has come and gone
When the cloudy skies
Turn to a brighter day
And when the worst part is left behind
Broken hearts will mend
And you will love again

Too late, no cards left to play
Love don't work that way
Though you always be my friend
There no more to say, and nothing to prove
The memories remain
But I'll never love again
5. Eye of the Storm (3:52)
I'm not the first, I won't be the last
Honey to want your love
(Honey just want your love)
I might be wrong
But I think there's someone else
On your mind

Time after time, you keep slip away
I'm not gonna haunt your love
(I never gonna haunt you love)
So don't lie, I can see right through

Look what you've done to me
Baby can't you see

So what if it's true
When everything breaks into pieces
The things we say and we do
Will nothing still matter to you
Safe in the eye of the storm

You say our love's, fading much too fast
How can you tell, my love
(Can you ever tell my love)
You may be right
But you don't know what you got 'til it's gone

So tell me now, what is the reason why
Why don't you won't my love
(Just tell me what it's all about)
And this time, jaded lies won't fly

Is it so hard to see, we were meant to be

So what if it's true
When everything breaks into pieces
The things we say and we do
Will nothing still matter to you
Safe in the eye of the storm

Each and every moment
I feel I'm loosing you
How wish you could tell me
If there's something I should do

Is it soon to be over
Will you find someone new
Tell me why you don't still love me
Like the way you used to do

So what if it's true
When everything breaks into pieces
The things we say and we do
Will nothing still matter to you
Safe in the eye of the storm
6. Until You Believe (5:02)
Say that you love me
Tell me you still care
Say there is room left
In your heart somewhere
We've been pretending for so long
But the signs are everywhere

Don't go

Lay down beside me, let me hold you near
Save me from danger
From the things you fear
Let me give me heart to you
For you to hold on to

If you go
Please let me come with you
I can wait by the end of the rainbow
'Til your search is through

If you stay
Whatever it takes I'll do
I will wait on the edge to your doorstep
As the rain comes down
Until you believe

Say, it it over
Is this our final bow
Our love surely ends here
If we don't even try
And we both know that it's true
For loving it takes two
If you go
Please let me come with you
I can wait by the end of the rainbow
'Til your search is through

If you stay
Whatever it takes I'll do
I will wait on the edge to your doorstep
As the rain comes down
Until you believe

And when the shadows starts to fall
With no light to guide us through
I'll still believe in me and you

If you go
Please let me come with you
I can wait by the end of the rainbow
'Til your search is through

If you stay
Whatever it takes I'll do
I will wait on the edge to your doorstep
As the rain comes down
Until you believe
7. The Great Fall (4:04)
Cold air
Riding with the winds

Nowhere
To escape from the chill that it brings

Is it soon to be over
Hold my breath and I count to ten
But it doesn't grow weaker
It comes raging like a storm
Stronger than before
Tearing down our walls

As we're heading for the great fall
Tell me where to we go
When all hope is gone

Yes we're heading for the great fall
'Cause I know that this war
Just can't be won

Dark shades
Spreading out their wings

Sharp blades
Marks the change that's about to begin

There's no sudden redemption
That could reveint our past

There's no sign of salvation
We've run out of time
Regression has begun
The damage is done

As we're heading for the great fall
There's no use to deny what is yet to come

Yes we're heading for the great fall
There's no point to go on
Once the truth has been told

As we're heading for the great fall
There's no use to deny what is yet to come

Yes we're heading for the great fall
There's no point to go on
Once the truth has been told
8. Call On Me (4:39)
No possessions
Now that I've lost you
But I still recall the times when we were one
No distractions, only space for you and me
But now it's all dried in stain
And yet it shines

It's easy when you pretend
Though you will reach the end
When promises broken
Words left unspoken
Everything you might regret

I'm haunted by your memory
I can't believe
That your love won't let me be
(You're) meant to be my destiny
So echo in my head, just call on me

No belonging, nothing else left to do
Than to put all hope in
(The) faith that you'll come back
Soul marking
My heart displays scars of you
But I know I will heal, if you come back

We shouldn't go on pretend
That we have reached the end
No promises broken
Words must be spoken
Saying things we never regret

I'm haunted by your memory
I can't believe
That your love won't let me be
(You're) meant to be my destiny
So echo in my head, just call on me

Open water
In your ocean I am drowned
As you fill me lungs with air
Crossing borders
On your soil I build my ground
(And) show how we could be remade
It's easy to just defend
Lies getting out of hand
When promises broken
Words left unspoken
Everything you will regret

I'm haunted by your memory
I can't believe
That your love won't let me be
(You're) meant to be my destiny
So echo in my head, just call on me
9. Emelie (4:57)
Oceans apart, no place to rest my heart
Signs of you left everywhere
My hands in chain, without you I go insane
You're my ever shining star

Have to find the sun behind the clouds
How can I survive without your everlasting smile
I must go on believing you'll come back to me

My Emelie
Only you can set me free
I've tried to give
All that you'd want for me
My world is build around you
Now I need to know
If you still believe
My Emelie, my Emelie

Summer's gone, the distance can't be undone
Still I can't let go
Images fade, daylight behind the grey
Must save me from myself

You're my one and only goal in life
Every second here without you tearing me apart
I would give up everthing if you came back to me

My Emelie
Only you can set me free
I've tried to give
All that you'd want for me
My world is build around you
Now I need to know
If you still believe
My Emelie, my Emelie

All my memories with you
Remember nothing else
You're the one who fills my pictures
Source to my demands
My life circles around you
You're my one desire
And I realize
With open eyes
Once I realize
There's no more lies

Have to find the light behind the dark
How can I survive without your heartbeat next to mine
Have to go on believe that you'll come back to me

My Emelie
Only you can set me free
I've tried to give
All that you'd want for me
My world is build around you
Now I need to know
If you still believe
My Emelie, my Emelie
10. Fall Down (4:14)
I still remember
The joyful sound of laughter
I still recall the wonder of it all
Two burning lovers
Wrapped around each other
Little did I know this day would come

We used to fly, above the highest mountain
We used to dive, into the greatest sea
But all the while
Your vicious heart grew colder
You left me in the middle of it all
Then you just stood back and watched me fall

So do you really think it's funny
When my walls come crashing down
When I hit the ground
'Cause you were always right behind me
Looking for the perfect spot
Just to see me, fall down

Do you remember
The endless nights of passion
The way we danced, in the pouring rain
But through it all
Your wicked ways grew stronger
You left me hanging at my highest low
Then you just relaxed, enjoyed the show

So do you really think it's funny
When I'm down on my knees
When I hit the ground

'Cause you were always right behind me
Looking for the pefect spot
Just to see me, fall down
Hit the ground, just when I fall down

Never thought we'd ending up going down this road
Will you ever change your heart
I just don't know

So do you really think it's funny
When my walls come crashing down
When I hit the ground

'Cause you were always right behind me
Looking for the perfect spot
Just to see me, fall down
11. Castaway (4:39)
I hear the crowd from my window
They seem to whisper your name
I'm on my knees since you left me
My heart abandoned in pain
I know we had our little moments
A roller coaster in time
But now I'm left feeling sorry
I didn't see what I had
What can I do to make it right
Thousands of words to say
Only your picture in my mind
How can I make you stay

I fade in your eyes
I've fallen from your sky, my bad
I'm counting the days
Hoping you come back, to me
Always here, I keep the lights on
So you'll find the way
Without your embrace
I'm a castaway

Remember all those rainy summers
And how we stayed in our bed
But now you're gone and I am still left here
With nothing but your sweet scent

So many feelings left inside, millions of word to say
Only your picture my head, how can I make you stay

I fade in your eyes
I've fallen from your sky, my bad
I'm counting the days
Hoping you come back, to me
Always here, I keep the lights on
So you'll find the way
Without your embrace
I'm a castaway

I'm just an open sore
And I can't take it anymore
Must have you back in my life
And I am done with fighting ghosts

I'll be there for you to come
And diminish all this mess
I am drying by the door
To hear your steps again

I want you to know, I'll find my way to you
Repeating your name, 'til you believe in us
Always here, longing for you
Hoping you return, without your demands
I'm only a castaway
12. One Step Away (4:39)
Sacred mother
Won't you take me by your hand
Can you share your words of wisdom
Will you be so kind

Righteous father
By your word I want to stand
Could teach me how to listen
How to understand

'Cause time after time
When we're losing each other
We're drawn back together
Knowing that

I will never hide away from your love
If your lost in the middle of nowhere
I will be one step away from you

I will never turn away from your love
Just give me a sign and I'll be there
No more than one step away from you

Long lost brother
I am reaching out to you
Hear me calling for redemption
Hear me call for you

New found love
Heaven knows where you came from
But in your eyes I see our future
What is yet to come

And I realize
This time
We belong to each other
Knowing that

I will never hide away from your love
If your lost in the middle of nowhere
I will be one step away from you

I will never turn away from your love
Just give me a sign and I'll be there
No more than one step away from you
