Higher

lyrics: R. Knijnenburg, B. de Wijs, B. van Dalen / music: R. Knijnenburg, B. de Wijs, B. van Dalen, A. Krabman
You close the door as I am walking off your step. Outside it’s cold but I feel warm as I look back. I can’t believe it was no average Friday night. The clock’s been beat ‘cause a kiss stopped the time. You tried to take it slow but you had me at hello. So let me know… Will you take us higher or am I running down below? I’m ready, I’m waiting, I’m standing at your doorstep. Come on, let me inside. I wanna give it all tonight. So what’s next, could you please give me a sign? Can we go back to the same place and the same time? And it may take a while for to me see how real this is. And even if it’s just tonight, I’d leave it all for this. Just give me one more kiss.

Love Will Lighten The Dark

lyrics: B. de Wijs / music: R. Knijnenburg, B. de Wijs, A. Krabman
I woke up with the feeling there’s a reason I’m still here. I looked up at the ceiling, heard you whisper in my ear: ‘I opened up my eyes, our dreams may come alive’. But it’s not a secret, if no one can keep it. I’m over living lies. We will never dance in the spotlight. We will never kiss by the moonlight. I can’t hold your hand in the daylight. Love will lighten the dark. She said ‘stay out of trouble’ but my hands were never clean. I’ll be safe in our bubble but with nothing left to dream. We will never sleep in the sunlight. We will never touch in the streetlight. You can’t hold my hand in the daylight, but love will lighten the dark. I try to hope less but it’s hopeless.

Stay With Me

lyrics: B. van Essen, B. de Wijs / music: H. Winterwerp, L. Troost, B. van Essen, R. Knijnenburg, B. de Wijs, A. Krabman
Turn around and show me your smile, tear-soaked cheeks don’t ever last. You said it was for the best. I wish I could take your pain away. It’s not that easy, can’t you see. It’s gonna take a lot of time but for now stay with me. My heart is yours and so am I. Please just give me one last try to prove that I want you more than anything in this whole world. Stay with me. Take the flame that burns inside. The one that holds within the key to open up yourself to me. If you could see me now, if you could hear me out. Do I have to scream it in your face? If you could hold me now then I could show you how I’m the safest place. But you don’t even care.

Run Away

lyrics: B. van Essen, R. Knijnenburg / music: R. Knijnenburg, B. van Essen, A. Krabman
Wash away all your sins. A brand new day opens up to you, a new beginning. Feel the urge to gather all your troubles. Search for better times and you will find your answer. I can’t say if you will ever run away but I will wait for you. I will stay if you will ever run away. I’m here for you. One last chance, would you give me one more dance? ‘Cause all I want in life is you forever. Walk with me, baby will you set us free? Come along and you will find your answer. I’m sorry for when I let you down before. Every day’s a new day to remember.

Turn Your Head Around

lyrics: B. de Wijs / music: B. de Wijs, A. Krabman
Is this the last night that we spent? ‘Cause it’s the coldest I’ve had from a friend. Was this the last bed that we shared? ‘Cause I don’t think I’ll every try to get you off my mind. Was this the last glance of your smile? ‘Cause it’s the last chance I get for a while. The last time I will fight ‘cause I don’t think I’ll ever try to get you off my mind. I’ve been trying so hard just to get your attention but I can’t seem to turn your head around. Around, around, turn your head around. This is the last song I will sing ‘cause I am pretty sure it won’t change a thing. The last song I will write ‘cause I don’t think I’ll ever try to get you off my mind. Everything won’t fall down as long as you’re in my arms. Everything won’t fall down just as long as you stay.

One Step Closer

lyrics: B. van Essen, S. van der Hoorn / music: R. Knijnenburg, B. van Essen, S. van der Hoorn, A. Krabman
So here we are again, searching for the light that’ll guide us home. Take my hand, let’s walk the path of broken hopes and dreams. I wonder what it is that makes me feel so alive. One step closer to the edge. I know we are destined for this. One step closer, no way back. Let me dance to the beat of your heart. Don’t be afraid of the dark. Dry your tears, you’re not on your own anymore. Here we are, together we’ll face our broken hopes and dreams. I’ll carry you with me wherever I go. I can take you higher than ever before.

Is It Me

lyrics: R. Knijnenburg, B. van Dalen / music: R. Knijnenburg, B. van Essen, B. van Dalen, A. Krabman
In all these days things aren’t getting any better. Will it end like this? You call it faith but I call it an ending story. We’re running out of time. I must admit that we’re not here to be together. Just wanna tell you the truth. We had our time, it passed me by in all its glory. And now I say goodbye. Is it me, is it you? Who’s gonna be the one that will stand up and leave? We’re moving slow but we can’t let it go but we should. I know you’re sad and we avoid a conversation. We really need to talk. I tried to search for ways to end this situation but now I say goodbye. I don’t know if I wanna be all alone. On my own, I can’t imagine to be. Is this really the only way out?

Against The Wall

lyrics: R. Knijnenburg, B. van Dalen / music: R. Knijnenburg, B. van Dalen
Outside, on the corner of the street under the starlight, there’s an empty bench where we both used to meet. You should have called me instead of getting rid of all the memories. Take a photograph and think it over again. Would you risk a broken heart? Standing with your back against the wall. Can you tell me where we are? Would you risk a broken heart and lose it all? It is obvious to me that you are gone. Not sure if everything is going as you wished for. We are bruised by hopes and fears and all is gone. But I won’t let go. It is obvious to me that you’re the one, I won’t let go.

Safe To Say

lyrics: J. Winterwerp, B. van Essen, B. de Wijs / music: J. Winterwerp, B. van Essen, R. Knijnenburg, A. Krabman
I tried to prove we belong together but we couldn’t make it work. And now we’re both preparing for the end; think of all the time we’ve spent. It’s not me, it’s not you, it’s just the things that we do, no matter how much we have been through. The only thing left for us to do is to forget each other so don’t even bother. I can’t see you now, you’re far away. Where are you hiding now? You’re falling apart. You put the ‘sad’ in settled and the ‘greed’ in disagreed. I can’t believe that after all this time you’re gonna let her change your mind. And now you’re falling apart. Goodbye now, I just don’t understand. You realised you’ve lost your friends. Finally it’s safe to say I’m glad you’re leaving anyway. Finally it’s safe to say we’re better off this way.

Anywhere From Here

lyrics: R. Knijnenburg, B. van Dalen, B. de Wijs / music: R. Knijnenburg, B. van Essen, B. van Dalen, B. de Wijs, A. Krabman
I’ve been awake for nights, I know, I want to. The sound of the radio is my only friend. I need to change but I don’t know how. This girl is a mystery, that’s why it’s so hard for me. You need some sleep, I know. I’m tired too but this song I wrote it helps me through. I find it hard but I’m still trying. This girl is a mystery, that’s why it’s so hard to see. She comes and she goes and she disappears. It could go anywhere from here. She screams and she whispers but she won’t hear we could go anywhere from here. I need some time to figure things out and get myself together somehow. It’s got to happen soon but I can’t do it right now.
