Wake Up Call
lyrics: B. van Dalen, R. Knijnenburg / music: R. Knijnenburg, B. van Dalen, W. Bouma
On the edge of a passing day. Times are fading, thoughts are washed away. The moon is taking over. Underneath the stars I’ve walked for miles. I crossed a river just to see your smile. I see you standing and I try to reach out for you. Do you hear that sound? Beep, beep: wake up call. You thought you had it all but it was all a dream. It’s a brand new day and you’re not planning to stay. So wake up, get out of bed. We are running out of time. Our love is ending, say goodbye. ‘Cause this might be our last chance. ‘Cause I hear that sound again. Try to snooze and sleep again, back to that dream where you live in. This can not last, I can’t get track. I just want you back.
Lost And Found
lyrics: B. van Dalen / music: R. Knijnenburg, B. van Dalen
So I’m glad you joined the show. I’m glad you found some ways to let go. Because now the band starts playing songs that we already know. And the crowd starts moving, things were getting out of control. We were falling slowly on the ground. Words you spoke were lost and found. We’re back on the run. We’re coming undone. We’re only waiting. We’re back on the front. I think that we’ve won. And I’ll just stay right here. Hey, I’m glad you decided to stay. I’m glad you didn’t look the other way. No, I am not tired, I just don’t know what to say. I’m feeling rolled up but there’s nothing that can stand in my way. I was falling slowly on the ground. Words you spoke were lost and found. The things that you said, the numerous rounds were just lost in the head. But now i’ve found you. Lost and found you. I was lost and found.
lyrics: B. van Dalen / music: B. van Dalen
So, shall I kick off with the bad news? We’ve had a year full of abuse and lies. There was some love, there were some fights. But was it all for this prize? A bitter view in your eyes? ‘Cause I would die to see you cry of what you tried that Thursday night. You should have called me to say “I’m sorry” but that’s part of your poisoned pride. Why did you want me? I sure am sorry for this waste of precious time. Thirty different ways to die. You’ve thrown away your chance to shine and now I am proud to say “I’m fine”.
A Shoulder To Cry On
lyrics: B. de Wijs / music: R. Knijnenburg, B. de Wijs
It’s the first day of the year but I’m not feeling as good as new. I’m waiting for my head to collapse. There’s the message that I feared and I can’t hold it back no more. I leave the room to enter the gap. I’ve had enough to drink for weeks. I’ve had enough of empathy, advice and well-intentioned lies. All I needed was a shoulder to cry on. It’s your footsteps in hall, it’s your arm reaching out for me. I’m prepared to let down my guard. No longer care about the fall now the pain is all over me. I feel like there’s a hole in my heart. All I needed was your shoulder. I remember years ago when you were just a kid who wouldn’t leave me alone. Who would have thought you’d dry my tears? Now the tables have turned. I wonder if you’d look up to a king with no throne. I hope we’ll keep this running for years. For years and years and years.
