"Ruins" as written by and Johanna Soderberg Klara Soderberg....
Today, I climb the highest mountain I have ever climbed
And I turn, to look at ruins I had left behind
And you, where were you so far removed from any truth

I lost you, didn't I?
First I think I lost myself

Children, then and forever locked in a memory
Holdin' that mirror searching for some kind of certainty
That you were just the same as everyone but you were wrong

And it hurt you, didn't it?
All you couldn't be

Ruins
Oh oh oh oh oh
Ruins
Oh oh oh oh oh

I tried to hold on to some kind of dignity
Too long I waded through a vast and endless sea
Thinking, I could find the secret there within

But I gave up, didn't I?
It seemed the only way

Ruins, all the things we built assured that they would last
Ending months ticket stubs and written notes and photographs
Where are you and here somewhere I cannot go

I'm sorry, I am
But I don't take it back

And in the night I hear your voice
Sometimes but it quickly passes
In dreams I saw what I had thought
Could be some kind of answer
You try and try and try until you cannot try no more
Captured in our own

Ruins
Oh oh oh oh oh
Ruins
Oh oh oh oh oh
Ruins
Oh oh oh oh oh
Ruins
