Alive
Music & Lyrics: Riikka Myller & Tomi Hassinen

Verse 1:
Lately, I don’t know what is wrong, I don’t know what is right
Can I keep up with you, is it worth the fight?
it’s just getting too hard to understand what it’s like
I see it clearly, but what am I supposed to do?
Even if I fall, I will see this through
We´re part of the story, me and you

Chorus:
Ooh, I’ve been waiting for so long
Now you’re here and you say tomorrow stays alive
and my life keeps getting clearer
And ooh, all the fears deep inside me
Are only slipping away and love gets stronger
When you look into my eyes, every time
I feel alive

Verse 2:
I think I need you, just wait and listen, you can feel the sound
Keep taking me high, get my feet off the ground
Maybe this is what we´ re here to find
So don´t, don’t lose what you have right now
It took a while to get here, just have no doubt
We´re not like the rest, they don´t understand.

Chorus:
Ooh, I’ve been waiting for so long
Now you’re here and you say tomorrow stays alive
and my life keeps getting clearer
And ooh, all the fears deep inside me
Are only slipping away and love gets stronger
When you look into my eyes, every time
I feel alive

Bridge:
It´s what you live for, it´s what you hope for
All the walls are coming down and I give in
It´s all you care for, it´s all that matters now
I´ll take your hand and I, I follow you

Chorus:
Ooh, I’ve been waiting for so long
Now you’re here and you say tomorrow stays alive
and my life keeps getting clearer
And ooh, all the fears deep inside me
Are only slipping away and love gets stronger
When you look into my eyes, every time
I feel alive

Break the silence
(Music and Lyrics: Riikka Myller & Tomi Hassinen)

Verse 1:
I want to break the silence, follow my fate
Been everywhere and this is where it ends
I´m falling into pieces and I can’t wait
I´m done with hiding so just tell me

Bridge:
If I let you in would you still be there?
If I let you in would you follow me anywhere?

Chorus:
And I don´t want it any other way
I want to hear you say my name
You don’t know me now, but still somehow
When we first came here, You stayed with no fear
And I don’t want it any other way

Verse 2:
The line between the secrets is breaking down
I’m proud to stand behind what I´ve said
Alone, mind full of questions, where does it end
Or is it just a new beginning, tell me

Bridge:
If I let you in would you still be there?
If I let you in would you follow me anywhere?

Chorus:
And I don´t want it any other way
I want to hear you say my name
You don’t know me now, but still somehow
When we first came here, You stayed with no fear
And I don’t want it any other way

Don’t be afraid
(Music & Lyrics: Riikka Myller & Tomi Hassinen)

Verse 1
I, I walked down the street tonight and I just thought
How can I tell you just how to stay strong
I tried to call you every night but I was afraid that you can’t hear what I’m saying
I, I walked down the street tonight and I just thought
How can I tell you just how to move on
I tried to call you every night but I didn’t know if you can hear me

CH:
But don’t be afraid that you fall
Cause you know the reason for it all

Verse 2
You, you try to keep it cool, can’t let it show
Just how you feel, it’s something no one knows
You let it slip and now you need work your way out from here, just let it all go
You try to keep it cool, won’t let it show
The way you feel is something I only know
Can’t let it slip no more you need to work your way out and just let it go

CH:
But don’t be afraid that you fall
Cause you know the reason for it all
and dont be afraid that f you fall
Cause you know the reason for it all

Everything I really need
(Music & Lyrics: Riikka Myller & Tomi Hassinen)

Verse 1:
Why does everything always need to change?
For once I thought that everything is in place
How could I predict the future
I’m just drifting on a waves of its sea

It’s hard to describe my respect
But you should never forget
The meaning you give to me
Is something no one else could ever see

Chorus:
Let us remember this moment
Let us remember these days
There’s everything I ever wanted
There’s everything I really need
Verse 2:
Why does everything always need to change
The walls we built around are tumbling down
It doesn’t keep the cold away
But with you I don’t need to be afraid

It’s hard to describe my respect
But you should never forget
That I wouldn’t change a thing
And we are stronger than we’ve ever been

Chorus:
Let us remember this moment
Let us remember these days
There’s everything I ever wanted
There’s everything I really need

Bridge:
I didn’t want you to go, I didn’t want you to leave me
I didn’t want this to end like this
I didn’t want you to go, I didn’t want to leave this
But now It’s time to break free

Chorus:
Let us remember this moment
Let us remember these days
There’s everything I ever wanted
There’s everything I really need


For Sophie
(Music & Lyrics: Riikka Myller & Tomi Hassinen)

Verse 1:
Last words for Sophie, the words I didn’t understand
I heard the talking, I felt the staring and now she’s gone
I´ll chase the shadows, I’ll find the way to reach your heart
The snow is falling, it fills the room with

Chorus:
Love – I’m still too far

Verse 2:
A song for a moment, those melodies that we all shared
I’m getting older while the pictures fade away in my head
I’ll stay awake now and see the story all the way through
It’s getting colder but I’ll keep you warm with all my

Chorus:
Love – I’m still so far
My guiding star
Inside my heart

Bridge:
I’ll be waiting ‘till the end comes, and I keep you close to my heart
But still you’re fading away and that is what I’ve got to take
It’s everywhere, it’s all around me, can’t hide, won’t go away
Cause the feeling is so strong and I’m still holding on to your love

Verse 3:
The candle’s burning – in the darkness of my room
One page is turning, for some the book just ends too soon
Inside my thoughts, the summer days
The snow is falling, it fills the night with

Chorus:
Love – I’m still so far
You’re my guiding star
Inside my heart

Moving on
Music & Lyrics: Riikka Myller & Tomi Hassinen

Verse 1:
Standing here in the crowd, I see you laughing, I hide
Try to keep my head high, and pretend to be strong enough
You can´t see me here, I made myself disappear
It´s way too soon to be out here, and let you change how I feel

Bridge:
I gave my all, you made me fall
Doors are closing in front of me
But now I need to make myself believe
All that is left is just here for me

Chorus:
This is the time for me to find
What I ´ve been waiting for all my life
All that is gone, all that was wrong
But now I’ve got to get moving on

Verse 2:
Days keep passing by, I have no reason to cry
For the first time I feel that I could light up my light
When I see this through, I won´ t be thinking of you.
You took me too far and I’ve got nothing to lose

Bridge:
I gave my all, you made me fall
It´s getting harder for me to breathe
But now I need to make myself believe
One day this water won´t be too deep

Chorus:
This is the time for me to find
What I ´ve been waiting for all my life
All that is gone, all that was wrong
But now I’ve got to get moving on

The radio
Music & Lyrics: Tomi Hassinen

Verse 1:
I listen to the news on the radio
ignore the promises, we must go
Save the children from the war
the shadows at the door
I turn off the TV while the show goes on
for the ones who don’t think anymore
I’m sick of those empty thoughts, as no one questions anything anymore

Verse 2:
I shiver as I close the door
it’s 5am we can’t stay anymore
The wind blows from the East
awakening of the beast
The winter here it is almost gone
but down the line we went terribly wrong
As the snow turned red, while we were lying in our beds

Chorus:
I’ll take you home – I’ll find a place
From the edge of the world
Oh, I’ll keep you safe – I’ll stay awake
Until the end of the world

Verse 3:
I listen to the news on the radio
I cannot understand anymore
The things they said were gone
are waking us by the dawn
My angel, my pride, she’s only four
she’s asking “mom, what is the third world war?”
I hide behind my smile, and say “it’s going to be alright”…

Chorus:
I’ll take you home – I’ll find a place
From the edge of the world
Oh, I’ll keep you safe – I’ll stay awake
Until the end of the world

Stay with me
Music & Lyrics: Riikka Myller & Tomi Hassinen

Verse 1:
Now, my world has changed
It gets so dark and, it won’t be the same
Now if, if I should fall, I need you with me
’Cause you make me strong.

Chorus:
And I, I would love you just the same
I would listen every word you say
Just tell me that you’re on your way
And stay with me

Verse 2:
Time, the times of joy
Remember the moments, and smile today
Away, away from me
And never return here, no words to say

Chorus:
And I, I would love you just the same
Oh I would listen every word you say
Just tell me that you’re on your way
And stay with me

And I, I will make you wanna stay
Now let me hold you ‘till there’s no more pain
Just tell me that you’re on your way
And stay with me

Through the fall
(Music & Lyrics: Riikka Myller & Tomi Hassinen) 

Verse 1:
My precious let’s dance for a while
Let’s leave the bitter thoughts outside
This moment when all is here
When everything in life feels clear

Chorus:
Let’s fly with the wind
Let’s fall with the rain
Let’s leave all the pain, oh everything
Will heal tonight

Verse 2:
My precious let’s walk through the fall
And find what we’ve been waiting for
These moments, these days I adore
We don’t need to run away anymore

Chorus:
Let’s fly with the wind
Let’s fall with the rain
Let’s leave all the pain, oh everything
Will heal tonight

You
(Music & Lyrics: Riikka Myller & Tomi Hassinen)

Verse 1
Everything feels paperthin
I think I’m losing my mind
I hate how I feel right now
You gave me something I wasn’t looking for
You messed up my mind
and here I am asking for more

Bridge
I try to hold it back, I try to keep it down
but you got this grip on me and I can’t lie

Chorus:
There’s something here that wasn’t here before
I feel like I’m not the same anymore
What I am right now is because of you

Verse 2
Everything feels different now
You’re looking at us from above
But you can’t even see what’s going on
I haven’t been this way before
Don’t know what to say
Words are only fading away

Bridge
I try to hold it back, I try to keep it down
but you got this grip on me and I can’t lie

Chorus
There’s something here that wasn’t here before
I feel like I’m not the same anymore
What I Am right now is because of you

Chorus
There’s something here that wasn’t here before
I feel like I’m not the same anymore
What I Am right now is because of you
There’s something here that wasn’t here before
This time I can´t go back anymore
What I Am right now is because of you

Wide awake
(Music & Lyrics: Riikka Myller & Tomi Hassinen)

Verse 1:
I have a million thoughts but it’s hard to speak
I’m dying for something that is out of reach
I try to sleep but I’m wide awake
I’d love to lie but I cannot fake
It’s endless pain but I still feel pleasure
I’m sinking while holding my treasure
So what the hell am I supposed to do
Is it only me or is it also you

Chorus:
But no one sees the pain and confusion inside my head
My eyes may seem cloudy but I’m far, far away from dead

Verse 2:
Say what you keep inside cause I need to know
What it’s like and how this will go
There is nothing that could feel right
My messed up mind that I must hide
I  tried so many times
I chose all the different lines
And still You’re out of reach
And all that’s left is the way you changed me

Chorus:
But no one sees the pain and confusion inside my head
My eyes may seem cloudy but I’m far, far away from dead
I’m navigating through the clouds with the beacon in my chest
That has never let me down, it’s something I trust the best
