Lyrics for Make Me Feel Good (Vase) Make me feel good Do it even though it scares you I'm not gonna possess you not gonna scare you to my death (Heidi) Make me feel good With no thoughts of tomorrow I know I only borrow Your heart for a while (All) And I know you'll never be mine And that's fine Yeah that's alright But the chase just gets me through the day and night I promised you to keep a safe distance to it all But I never do as I am told Ooh Fire Ooh Fire You smell like trouble You light my fire (Mads) Make me feel good With no thoughts of my emotions You are not my only option You're not my wildest dream (All) Make me feel good Let's get lost in the streelights In the shadows of the dark night Let's get it on ooh Know you'll never be mine And that's fine Yeah that's alright But the chase just gets me through the day and night I promised you to keep a safe distance to it all But I never do as I am told Ooh fire Ooh fire You smell like trouble You light my fire What are you doing with my heart my body and my soul Fixing the broken pieces and a new puzzle shows I was looking forward to be myself and on my own Why are you messing with my heart my body and my soul Ooh fire Ooh fire You smell like trouble You light my fire Ooh fire Ooh fire You smell like trouble You light my fire

Lyrics for Fighting Life Alone Don't start being a stranger Just because we hurried home I'm lovesick which keeps me in danger And finally on my own My pillow carries only one weight My dreams are ruined when you're in my bed How can I explain it here I've got all I need Fighting life alone Fighting life alone Don't start asking me questions You know I don't have the answers to Why is it always complicated When the morning sun lays eyes on you My pillow carries only one weight My dreams are ruined when you're in my bed How can I explain it here I've got all I need Fighting life alone Fighting life alone My pillow carries only one weight My dreams are ruined when you're in my bed How can I explain it here I've got all I need Fighting life alone Fighting life alone

Lyrics for Dreaming Wild Tornadoes How can I tell my father How can I tell my mother You left me for another And I am all alone Oh they speak of you Like you were divine Oh they speak of you Like you still were mine Quivering river Are your waters ashore Tears are flowing from my eyelids As a sign of wanting more Quivering river Do you wash me away Melting down my broken spirit Though I tried to I just couldn't Make you stay I'm dreaming wild tornadoes In dreams I die, I hate those I realize I'm not close To waking up again 'Cause I speak of you Like you were divine Yeah I speak of you Like you still were mine Quivering river Are your waters ashore Tears are flowing from my eyelids As a sign of wanting more Quivering river Do you wash me away Melting down my broken spirit Though I tried to I just couldn't Make you stay Still I am longing for Prairie winds, freedom and much more Still I am counting on Someone to catch me when I fall Still I am longing for Prairie winds, freedom and much more Still I am counting on Someone to catch me when I fall Quivering river Are your waters ashore Tears are flowing from my eyelids As a sign of wanting more Quivering river Do you wash me away Melting down my broken spirit Though I tried to I just couldn't Though I meant to, simply failed to Make you stay

Lyrics for Who Are You? Drown me with your silence Are we safe from the other day Darling I am sorry I can only Be inspired by someone Pulling me down I can only be inspired by someone Pulling me down Hopeless you give me nothing Such a shame you're killing my love away Hands on find your way through I'm curious What is it that scares you when I want To see you again What is it that scares you when I refuse To play your game I fall down losing my grip I chase you My face is thrown in the depths all for you And who are you? And who are you? Two souls strange to each other Won't be safe from the other day Darling I am sorry I can only Feel the living and you are Dead inside I can only feel the living and you are Dead inside I won't be inspired by someone Who's not around Won't ever be inspired by someone Pulling me down

When the fall's is only one step away Then I'll be airborne Oh no ain't it easy to love When the person I love is you You take me under Have you wondered Why your body fits so well in mine when we are... Have you seen How our eyes are the same when we're feeling hazey So rare unlike makes it easy falling for you I am falling for you Oh aint it easy being afraid? When I'm constantly living in fear That you might leave me When you wrote at my back you got my attention I'm falling down 'Cause you take me under Have you wondered Why your body fits so well in mine when we are... Have you seen How our eyes are the same when we're feeling hazey So rare, unlike - makes it easy falling for you I am falling for you Falling for you I am falling for you Falling for you I am falling for you Oh yeah in the air Oh yeah in the air Oh yeah in the air Oh yeah in the air Oh yeah in the air Oh yeah in the air Oh yeah in the air Oh yeah in the air

Oh let's reach for the sky Let's go sky high Seeking the adventure in our lives Never turning back Looking for the cracks That made life a boring wait for the train to death Go wade in the water if you don't have a boat Go wade in the water if you don't have a ship Go wade in the water if you don't have a raft Go wade in the water I'm a traveller I'm gonna meet them indians Make them my lovers, dance to the rhythm I'm a traveller I'm gonna meet them cowboys Make them my lovers, dance to the rhythm I'm a traveller I'm gonna meet them black men Make them my lovers, dance to the rhythm I'm a traveller I'm gonna meet them sinners Make them my lovers, dance to the rhythm Dance to the rhythm Oh let's keep walking strong Barefeet on the ground What's a little pain to gain all the things that you've found? Walking miles on cole Burning feet and soul If I give up who will carry my body to goal? Go wade in the water if you don't have a boat Go wade in the water if you don't have a ship Go wade in the water if you don't have a raft Go wade in the water I'm a traveller I'm gonna meet them indians Make them my lovers, dance to the rhythm I'm a traveller I'm gonna meet them cowboys Make them my lovers, dance to the rhythm I'm a traveller I'm gonna meet them black men Make them my lovers, dance to the rhythm I'm a traveller I'm gonna meet them sinners Make them my lovers, dance to the rhythm Dance to the rhythm Go wade in the water if you don't have a boat Go wade in the water if you don't have a ship Go wade in the water if you don't have a raft Go wade in the water I'm a traveller I'm gonna meet them indians Make them my lovers, dance to the rhythm I'm a traveller I'm gonna meet them cowboys Make them my lovers, dance to the rhythm I'm a traveller I'm gonna meet them black men Make them my lovers, dance to the rhythm I'm a traveller I'm gonna meet them sinners Make them my lovers, dance to the rhythm Dance to the rhythm Dance to the rhythm Dance to the rhythm
