LYRICS: Are you going to realize? Or is it all just floating by? Here are the footprints you’ve left, they are about to disappear and while you’re standing there, your mind is somewhere else. In the end it’s alright. You didn’t have to leave, just hold on. In the end it all makes sense. You didn’t have to go, just hold on. Everything is so close. Don’t you know? You didn’t have to leave, you didn’t have to go. Oh, just hold on. You didn’t have to leave, oh I told you so. You can stop spinning around, you can be still right now. I hope that’s what you want to be. Are you aware of the present? Can’t you get rid of the past? Do your thoughts wander off towards the future? In the end it’s alright. You didn’t have to leave, just hold on. In the end it all makes sense. You didn’t have to go, just hold on. Everything is so close. Oh, don’t you know? You didn’t have to leave, you didn’t have to go. Oh, just hold on. You didn’t have to leave, oh I told you so.

LYRICS With your eyes wide open all you see are trunks around you. How much time has passed? Is this all real or just a dream? Your feet are wet and your mouth is dry and all begins to spin inside. You’ve never seen the outside world and you don’t know how it feels to lose yourself here. Trees over trees and nowhere left to go. Trees over trees all around. You stumble through the woods. Who sent you here? Was it you or me? Sounds of rain gently touch your ear and your fear makes you start to run. You’ve never seen the outside world and you don’t know how it feels to lose yourself here. You’ve never seen the outside world and you don’t know how it feels to lose yourself. With all the woods now gone, I knew you were never meant to lose it all. Your feet have reached the sea, I knew you were never meant to lose it all. Your eyes can rest you’re safe, I knew you were never meant to lose it all.

LYRICS Everything around is fading so fast and while I’m sitting here I wonder how it will turn out. All these noises all these whispers are surrounding me. I didn’t notice a single word you’ve said. Can’t you wake me up? I wanna feel this pain. Pure and straight into my heart to feel the cure. Longing for the days and celebrating the past. As if it was something worth fighting for. How will this turn out? Why can’t I live in the present tense and just be here? There is no glory in the old days. I know. Can’t you wake me up? I wanna feel this pain. Pure and straight into my heart to feel the cure. What are we now? What are we waiting for?

LYRICS You turn around, the noise outside has died away. Don’t close your eyes, embrace the calm. It all makes sense, the clearing appears in front of you. Don’t try too hard, just let it go. It’s too late, too late to leave. You should stay but you don’t know if you can. The quiet place you tried to avoid has found you and in this silence the thought enters your head. That you never had anything to say to anyone and the lump in your throat won’t speak. It’s too late, too late to leave. You should stay but you don’t know if you can. Nothing, nothing. Where’s the sound? What’s left now? It’s too late, too late to stay. You should leave but you don’t know if you can. Voiceless, soundless, restless.
