Myth

# Title Duration
1. Life of Crime
you and me we had it all wrong
there was ice beneath our feet
but I refuse to understand it
and I refuse now to believe

I know that I will be alone tonight
even though you are by my side
you said this life is not what you planned it
but if this is a life at all
it is a life of crime

now it’s true I hardly know you
and you will always look for me
but there is nothing here to hold onto 
except the possibilities

when I was young I had a vision
I saw the waves crash into the sky
you said this life was made for the living
but if this is a life at all
it is a life of

how can I believe
		you don’t know
the words I hear you speak
		you can’t be sure
you say a soul is in me
well if it’s a soul you want
then you can take the one I’ve got
cause it’s a life of crime

this life was made for something
but it wasn’t you and I
we all were born from nothing
and we will never die

2. The Myth of Youth
I was what you wanted then
I saw your eyes reaching toward it
the one you never thought you’d get
now I’m a picture in your wallet

everything was simpler then
nothing gained no one losing
we held the future in our hands
now we’ve got nothing but the present

tell me I’m a little bit
like I was when I met you
it didn’t end the way that we wanted it
now I’m just breath in a statue

I am here to love you
but I don’t know if I can
what if all I ever will become
is nothing but a man

I am here to love you
but I don’t know what that means
I just want to feel how I feel
not wonder if it’s real
I want you to be real

I knew what I wanted then
I was living for the summer
soon we would be growing up
and we could finally have each other

now that I am looking back
all I needed was to wonder
but we let ourselves forget to forget
and so we ended in an answer

I am here to love you
but I don’t know who I am
if only I could just forget to ask

take me to my younger years
running round the woods
with all my useless dreams

no one could tell me what was real
when you’re young you can forget anything at all
and you wear it like a mirror

3. Kaleidoscope
now it’s gone
turn the page
in a year we won’t remember
what we meant to say

so fill mine
tell me why
we’re looking through Kaleidoscopes
at each other trying to see inside

(CHORUS)
cause love is wise
and love will take
the words right out of your mouth
make you so afraid

now it’s gone
now we wait
for a garden lost
among likenesses and fakes

you took my heart
now lose your head
before too long
we will be there again

CHORUS
04:37
4. Blinders
see my love dance and she sways
what I think I have she will take
there's a center in the empty space
if I move closer it stays in its place

now I feel so afraid
the sky is falling down like rain
I'm drawing lines around the empty space
I wear blinders to show me the way

it's not a mystery
it's not a mystery
I feel eyes in the trees
and they make me want to believe
03:08
5. Lover's Game
well I just cannot tell one from the other
that’s the way it’s got to be
so I lay my feet in front of the other 
til they come right back to me

(CHORUS)
there’s nothing we can do
we were born to die fools
there’s nothing we can do
we were born to die fools

well they say you get it if you got it coming
it’s a lie we’ve got to keep
when I close my eyes my mind starts to running
but it’s you I want to see

CHORUS

I wonder who’s watching
underneath the nights unlearned
I wonder if we’re all so far now from who we were

I wonder if I’m here for nothing
I wonder if I’m here at all
I wonder if I’ll ever love you for who you are

well I just cannot tell one from the other
that’s the way it’s got to be
so I lay my feet in front of the other
til they come right back to me

CHORUS

we were born to die fools
we were born to die fools

6. The Dream Has Faded
Do you want me tonight?  Do you want me to come find you?  We could go for a drive.  Leave the heat of this dead summer.

I just realized that no one is watching us.  We could be gone before anybody notices.  We could live like bank robbers.

the dream has faded
you're not the one
they're calling out for
the one they want

the dream has faded
you're not the one
they're calling out for
you're not the lucky one

You put your hand out the window, say, “Thank God for this car.  All I want to see is that long black road disappearing in the dark.”  And don't you think it kind of looks like, like we're driving straight into nothing?  Like we're trying to catch it in our headlights, but the night just keeps on running.

now I feel
now I feel
now I feel
now I feel


the dream has faded
you're not the one
they're calling out for
the one they want

the dream has faded
you're not the one
they're calling out for
you're not the lucky one	
sometimes I feel like the wind could blow the night away
but it would only end up in another place
we think we're falling but love is just a thing we made
i believe in that

now I feel
now I feel
now I feel
now I feel
04:15
7. Shell Beach
down, down we go
straight to the bottom 
of the ocean floor

we packed up every house
took every family
we were getting out

and the waves 
they are so strong
they move your perfect body like a perfect song

tonight, the world is ours
cause we don’t need to want to know
who we are

I am alive
but I am so cold
if I stay here much longer I will stay for good

but for now
I feel so free
I’m feeling almost like it was all meant to be
03:30
8. The Boulder
I wonder if I know you at all
or if I really came to talk

nothing is as it seems in your mind
but that’s the only way to get it inside

let’s just take some time with this
let’s just keep a cool head

there’s no need to throw a fit
you know what you know and that’s the end of it

It’s mine
It’s mine
It’s mine

It’s mine
	the ground beneath your feet
It’s mine
	the words you’re whispering
It’s mine
	the wind among the trees
It’s mine
	your breath when you’re asleep
03:59
9. Vesijärvi
black water
fills my head
just enough to falter
but not to let me in

cool mist
fills the air
I don’t know where it comes from
or why I should care

Vesijärvi

now that I found you
what will we become
we’ll have to make it up now
as we go along

the midnight sun
soon will glow
just to remind us
that we are here for show

Vesijärvi

we both know by now
the light it folds into a new position
and soon this night will turn 
into just what it is we think we’re missing
04:22
10. Kites
my wings
are like his
all my words
on his lips

and my brain
is on edge
I’m next to the bed
where I saw you

my weight
is like his
we both lost
what we kissed

and my hate
burns like this
in my hands
in his fist

and my love
is so quick
like the legs
of my kids

all the worlds
I could lift
only fit
where I saw you

pile lover upon lover
til we’re covered with skin
there’s nothing to discover
from the thunder and lightning
there’s no way to recover
this is love not loving
and now we are all each other
I was a brother
when I saw you
