Never thought that love and sadness
Could ever walk hand in hand
Never thought that laughter and sorrow
Could live within the same heart

We came far living on stolen moments
We can pretend for only so long
We all fail, stumble and fall
We are the same till the end in fire

Out to the sea I cry my heart
Into the wind I weep my sorrows
Below this soil I lay my thoughts
Under the waves I drown my grief

Out to the sea you cry your heart
Into the wind you weep your sorrows
Below this soil we lay our thoughts
Under the waves we drown our grief

You were the one I believed in
I was the one with your trust
But stars no longer will guide us
We walk in all-consuming dark

For life shapes us and we never return
To the same where we left from
Hope always looks for a disappointment
And tranquillity for a war

And I sail the sea in a leaking ship
Try to cross the ocean without a sheet
No wind will carry me to the shore
No wave will take me back to home

You are in the silence around me
You are the water in my lungs
You are in escaping daylight
As we dance our way into the dark

Into the dark...

    General CommentWe ended up recording 11 songs in total with these album sessions. As ten songs already tick around 56 minutes we decided it would be a good call to leave one song as bonus. Just to keep the actual album but more coherent. This song came together quite easily. I remember playing the parts with acoustic guitar and just recording stuff down to my iPhone after moving near London. After I blocked the chorus par from one of Markus's demos it was pretty much a wrap. Lyrically it's about seeking comfort and solitude from nature. There's just something soothing about walking in the forest far away from all the noise; strong sensation of coming home and being part of the wild.
