Track Name: Pictures
Little versions of ourselves
Trapped in space and in time
Snippets from a treasured past
That hardly left a trace

You were smiling big and strong
On every photographs
We took pictures as we laughed
Now everything seems wrong

And time goes by
Heals our pain and worries
And all that remains
Is pictures and hazy memories

Little portion of your face
Forever on paper
Lips and teeth stuck in place
This smile was my sister's

Hold on to this
Piece of yourself
Before it fades
Away

Time goes by
Heals our pain and worries
But will never erase
Your old self from our memories

Time goes by
Heals our pain deeper and deeper
But will never erase
Your smile on the picture
Track Name: Shame on you
A phone call in the dead of the night
I wake up groggy
I hear voices and I follow the light
But only darkness awaits me

Tears fall from four pairs of eyes
It makes hate knock at our door
Someone's barking on the other side
The same thing in a loop

Shame on you
Shame on you

There are a lot of things
I'd like to forget about that night
The shadows on the ceiling
The yelling and the fright

Cause I keep hearing the barks
Shame on me but for what?
For loving him, for loving her?
For loving my sister?

Cause I keep hearing your barks
And for one thing you were right
Shame on me
Shame on me

For believing you were nice
For not seeing the hatred in your eyes
Not knowing you would tear us apart
Shame on me for thinking you were worth her sacrifice
Track Name: The button box
Here it was
In the old bedroom
By the window
Where the sun poured down

And here I was
My five year-old self
Drawn to this
Such unusual shelf

I would sit
And open it
And this very moment
Was my favourite

For hours
I would watch them shine
Display their colours
In the evening glow

And you let me
Be in my own bubble
Cause with you
There never was trouble

Then I grew up
And you went away
I never knew
Where it was until today

It was my favourite childhood game
And it all remained the same
Except that I don't hear you talk
And I now own your button box

I now own the button box
Track Name: Song for Noah
Your little life is as blank
As this piece of paper
Keep your eyes closed and sleep tight
You'll have time to wonder

About the shapes and the smells
Everything that surrounds you
Don't rush it now, take your time
Just breathe

Touch
Look
Cry
Smile

And scribble down on the pages of your book
But leave some lines for me

Your little life is as blank
As this path full of snow
Flakes move and dance
Twirl around in a beautiful show

Look up the sky, let them fall
In a spotless cover
Don't crush it now, take your time
Just breathe

Walk
Run
Fall
Learn

And scribble down on the pages of your book
But leave some lines
Please leave some lines
Just leave some lines
For me
Track Name: The girl I used to know
How can someone I knew so well
Become someone that I don't recognize anymore?
I bet you never could have tell
That someday you'd let him throw them out the door

I never said goodbye
To the girl I used to know
But I hope she'll come back
So I'm gonna say hello

How can someone we knew so well
Become someone that we don't recognize anymore?
I bet you never could have tell
That someday you'd leave us crying on the floor

We never said goodbye
To the girl we used to know
But we hope she'll come back
So we're gonna say hello

We're far but we'll always be there
Sisters, dad and mom
So if you don't know where you're going
Just remember where you come from

We never said goodbye
To the girl we used to know
But we hope she'll come back
So we're gonna say hello

We never said goodbye
To the girl we used to know
But we hope you'll come back
So we're gonna say hello
Track Name: See you tomorrow
Wooden cubes on the floor
Trying to build the Eiffel Tower
A funny house and cars and train
Where cats and monsters become friends

In a small and cold living room
Somewhere down under
But who cares where we were
When we were together

Playing all day long with you
Singing lullabies sweet and mellow
I'm sorry that I lied to you
When I said “See you tomorrow”

We gathered up the wooden cubes
In utter consternation
And put them out with the cars and train
Together with our expectations

There was no playing with you
Nothing more to sing sweet or mellow
But someday in a year or two
We will have our tomorrow
Track Name: November
Rough is the water
Dark and cold, I sink deeper
I lost track of the numbers
In my head all seems to blur

They said if you fall overboard
Keep counting till you reach the shore
But I feel my lungs no more
As I am pushed to the floor

They put me on a boat
And I clung to her petticoat
And I heard tales of freedom
As we sailed in the unknown

Still is my body
Keep hiding, my mind tells me
I am scared and so lonely
Please someone come rescue me

They put me on a red seat
And I listened to the music
And I heard rock'n'roll songs
As we danced and sang along

I wish I could tell you
That none of these stories are true
Cause who in his right state of mind
Would want to kill a little child?

Sad world we live in
Where love is a sin
Mad world we live in
Where life is a sin

Life is a sin
Track Name: CX261
The plane took off
We're heading home
Where do we go from here?

The storm has passed
We're not alone
Where do we go from here?

Happy new year
A thousand times
Where do we go from here?

Up in the sky
But down to earth
Where do we go from here?
Track Name: Berceuse pour Demiana
De l'autre côté de la Terre
Tu t'endors
Tu fermes tes paupières

À l'autre bout du monde
Je me réveille
Je me lève

Y'a du soleil à Paris
Et je pense à toi ma jolie Demiana
Fais de beaux rêves
Cette nuit

À l'autre bout de la planète
Tu t'éveilles
Tes jolis yeux s'émerveillent

À plus de 15 000 kilomètres de toi
Je m'endors
Je rêve

Il fait nuit à Paris
Et je pense à toi ma jolie Demiana
Amuse-toi bien
Aujourd'hui
