Track Name: Desperate Land
DESPERATE LAND

C D
Slippin’ into the black again
Wonder where it all will end
The yellow colour of the grass
Why are you leaving such a mess

G Em
You leave your footprints in the sand
Am D
And wonder why there is no end to this deperate land
G Em
And it’s the different kind of view
Am
The kind you thought you always knew
D
That points out what you have to do

C D
Creepin’ out of your dark hole
Darkness pouring from your soul
And there’s something you should know
It shines white light and turns to gold

G Em
You leave your footprints in the sand
Am D
And wonder why there is no end to this deperate land
G Em
And it’s the different kind of view
Am
The kind you thought you always knew
D
That points out what you have to do

I am trying to know what matters

Nowhere I see your name Nowhere I hear your name

Track Name: Unanswered
UNANSWERED

Em
I remember, when I was just a little kid
A
My father was walking far infront of me
Em
Going so fast I couldn’t keep up with him
A
I got lost and even then I couldn’t see

C G
What was going on in his mind
D A
Is so far away from me
C G
All the answers I’d hope to find
D A
Wouldn’t find their way to me

Em A
The problem is still there Still asking the same things
Em A
Still don’t know what’s true or fair Answers don’t mean a thing
Em A
The problem is still there But I think it’s only fair
Em A
You have to solve your own And don’t leave anything

C G
What is going on in his mind
D A
Is so far away from me
C G
All the answers I’d hope to find
D A
Wouldn’t find their way to me

Track Name: The water's edge
The water’s edge

C G
Just before the first step I took today I tried to find the sun,
but it wasn’t there
Just before I opened my eyes I tried to breath,
but there was no air
I hold the straw in my hand that cuts in my fingers,
some blood to share
The day has started without me, the dream goes on
I wasn’t there C G
Bm
I couldn’t share

Am D
I know where to get what I need
Am D
I know where to get what I want
Am C D
It’s never been hard for me to do

C G C G
C G
It’s a lot like starting something new
You have to start all over again
The purple heather, the grey mare
I have to learn to care

Am D
I know where to get what I need
Am D
I know where to get what I want
Am D
I know where to get what I need
Am D
I know where to get what I want

Am C D
It’s never been hard for me to do 2x

Track Name: Gonna try out love
GONNA TRY OUT LOVE

I see you lying in the sand
I should know better, than to take your hand
The sun has almost gone away
Boats on the horizon, fade to grey

Oh,oh,oh

Oh, the sleepless nights I’ve had
As it turned out, it wasn’t half that bad
All this love’s gone to my head
Let it happen, if it hasn’t happened, yet

Gonna try out love, this time
Gonna try, my love

Sleep tonight, hold me tight and I’ll be in your dreams tonight

I wonder where you are now

The snow is gone and with it your face

I still don’t know how

Can you tell me what went wrong

Can you sing me a sweet song

Write the words, write the lines

Can you sing me a sweet song

Better make it a lullaby

Sweet as honey, never lie

Write the words, write the lines

Sweet as honey, a lullaby

I can’t tell you what it’s like, not easy to explain

I have to think I’ll be alright or else I go insane

People tell you that they know, they can feel your

Pain

After a while they look the other way and giving you

the blame

Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

I don’t understand

You don’t understand

We don’t understand

Track Name: Moody
MOODY

Slowly, I will wake up
And see the day that lies before me
Lonesome as ever I’ll be
I will stay what lies behind me

No-one sees me
Will never hurt me
Never leave me
Never scar me

Deep down I feel so good
I dream away into paradise
Moody, show what I feel
I dream away into paradise

No-one sees me…
