Track Name: Dandelion (Life Goes On)
They play games on a graveyard
Hide and seek, hide and seek
When I wake I try to forget
Hide the dead, hide the dead

We catch fire and try to surface
Is this real, is it real
All we needed was a purpose
Dandelion, life goes on

Some walks you have to take alone
But thankfully I’m not the only soul

Anyone can come back to life
Except the ones who die
Drag yourself from your inner hell
And pray that you’re alright
Fire burns brighter in the dark
Watch my arrow hit its mark
And self-destruct my heart

I go back every evening
To the games, to the war
Little bombs made by the monsters
We are all just human beings

Some walks you have to take alone
But thankfully I’m not the only soul

Anyone can come back to life
Except the ones who die
Drag yourself from your inner hell
And pray that you’re alright
Fire burns brighter in the dark
Watch my arrow hit its mark
And self-destruct my heart

Til the end I’ll see their faces
The lost, the broken and the dead
Still I feel it wasn’t worth it
Dandelion, life goes on
Dandelion, life goes on

Nobody can come back to life
Not even those you love
Drag yourself from your inner hell
And pray to that god above
Fire burns brighter in the dark
Watch my arrow hit its mark
I’ll self-destruct my heart
Track Name: Sometimes
we’re frail and confused and we’re violent
we struggle with so many issues
we’re ever so flawed, but all in all
i’m proud, so proud

and your kind is somehow the opposite
you’re strong and you’re brave to the core
you roam through the skies, you attack in the night
and yet you claim you’re the light

and i am not afraid of you
your kind or your god
i am not a helpless girl
i’m an ant on the battlefield of gods

sometimes we stumble and sometimes we fall
and sometimes we hit something good
sometimes we’re ruthless and sometimes we’re not
and sometimes we do what we shouldn’t

you and i don’t need to partners
we’re nothing but means to an end
the words that we say should be meaningless
“i don’t even like you” he said

but we are more than who we were
the things we did before
we can stand tall together
i want to hear you say more

sometimes we stumble and sometimes we fall
and sometimes we hit something good
sometimes we’re ruthless and sometimes we’re not
and sometimes we do what we shouldn’t

they say he has nothing but archdemon wings
i say that he has me
he runs his fingertips along my cheek
“hush i’m right here, just breathe”

“don’t talk about her”
he’s mine to recover
we’re stumbling along in the dark

“you don’t even like me”
the pain fills my body
and now is the best time to start
Track Name: Fireheart
Capo 4

Am C G F

Am
Falling falling down
C
No bottom but the ground
G
No getting up
F
No giving in

I am lost
I do not know the way
Collecting scars
For all the sins I pay

G F F G
The people you love are just weapons
Weapons to use against you

C
I will not be afraid
G F
I will rattle the stars, shatter my heart
C
I’m the heir of ash and fire
G F
And I will not bow down, I will claim my crown
Am C
I am the light to drive out darkness
G F
The thief in the night that steals your heart
Am C
Deep inside my fire is rising
G
And I have done my part

Cheek against the moss
A princess by my side
Telling me to
Get up and fight

I have made my choice
I claim you and you claim me
When I climb out
I’ll never be the same

But mine is not a story
Of darkness

I will not be afraid
I will rattle the stars, shatter my heart
I’m the heir of ash and fire
And I will not bow down, I will claim my crown
I am the light to drive out darkness
The thief in the night that steals your heart
Deep inside my fire is rising
And I have done my part

Fireheart
Fireheart
Fireheeeeaaaart

I claim you
You claimed me
We will change the world
Rebuild it
Revive it
Together we are whole

I will not be afraid
I will rattle the stars, shatter my heart
I’m the heir of ash and fire
And I will not bow down, I will claim my crown
I am the light to drive out darkness
The thief in the night that steals your heart
Deep inside my fire is rising
And I have done my part
Track Name: Prisoner of Love
You call to me in whispers
And watch from far away
Your eyes do all the talking
They ask me if I'll stay

I can't see where you're going
All you see is pain
The world is deep in shadow
But you are not afraid

This is not what I expected
A beast, a man undetected

You hold me ever closer
Silent in your arms
Your voice is just a sliver
"I love you and your thorns"

But still you say I'm leaving
You force me away
I make myself stop speaking
I love you anyway

This is not what I expected

Swimming in the starlight
Staying up til dawn you are
The sun that shatters darkness
The one that saves the fawn
I am just a lonely heart
Playing games like an ancient heart
But I can't find your face
I'll love you til the end of days

Don't feel bad for doing
The thing that brings you joy
Don't feel bad for leaving
We will all survive
Don't run away
Don't let her win
Don't let the curse
Become your sin
Don't forget him

There you kneel before me
A prisoner of love
Your lips silently smiling
A prayer hides on my tongue

Swimming in the starlight
Staying up til dawn you are
The sun that shatters darkness
The one that saves the fawn

Swimming in the starlight
Staying up til dawn you are
The sun that shatters darkness
The one that saves the fawn
I am just a lonely heart
Playing games like an ancient heart
But I can't find your face
I'll love you til the end of days
Track Name: If Only for Tonight
Do you remember the first time that we met
Do you remember the night that we were infinite
Do you remember when you cried into my shirt
Cause I do

And that first Christmas when I didn’t feel alone
And we had our first kiss the night that you weren’t coming home
At my first dance you were the only one I saw
I remember it

We are all just stories
Like words on a page
Life don’t stop for nobody
A sometimes things have to change
This is my life, this is now
I’m happy and sad and I don’t know how
But she is standing right in front of me
Tonight
And she’s so beautiful

I’m standing on the fringe with some new perspective
My life’s a photograph that is still developing
Jokes will become stories and stories can postpone
Tomorrow

And there was a time
When my old life
Wasn’t just memories
It was happening

CHORUS

For tonight I’m not a sad song
For tonight I’m alive and not alone
I’m standing up to see the lights
Everything is shining bright
I’m listening and watching
Whistling and falling
Falling so in love with my life
If only for tonight

CHORUS
Track Name: My Own Master
CAPO 4

Am G F G
to the stars who listen
and the people wishin on them
darkness cannot consume

to the mighty who’ve fallen
and the lovers who want them
darkness must not consume

F Am G F
but underneath that blackened sky
deep beneath the mountain high
the devil becomes a friend

C G F G Am F G G Am G
I will not be weak again
Helpless fallen almost dead
I will not be someone’s pet
I am stronger
I am a survivor
And iiiiii am
My own master

to the night that can’t last
and the misfits that fight back
darkness has already consumed

to the angels who save us
and the demons that haunt us
darkness is waging a war

but underneath that blackened heart
deep beneath a frozen guard
the devil is new again

I will not be weak again
Helpless fallen almost dead
I will not be someone’s pet
I am stronger
I am a survivor
And iiiiii am
My own master

Dm Am G F
I’m the fox in the hen house to eat you dead
The wolf in the forest that wants your head
All these things that I’ve become
I needed night and not your sun

I’m not the prey you thought I was
I’m not your prisoner of love
I’ll make you kneel and pay the price
For taking back what once was mine
Track Name: Elentiya (feat. Christina Marie)

CAPO 2

C Em
I’ve never been so close
To someone I just met
You always fight for justice
For the ones who run from death

You run away from death
Just like you run from men
Building up your walls
And hoping they will stand

D C D C
Sometimes words speak louder
Than the actions we take
I wish that we could take them back
Maybe that would stop the ache

D C D C
The hearts of sisters
The souls of queens


CHORUS:
Em B7 C G
Had I known then
That you would be
The only one I know who had
The power to set me free

Em B7 C G
And if I knew then
What I know now
That you would be the anchor that kept
My light from going out

C D Em B7
Wherever I go
Wherever I’ll be
I’ll always remember what
we used to be

C Em
Our spirits can’t be broken
By anything

I do my best to live
The way you’d want me to
I’m fighting towards my death
But I’m still thinking about you

You are but a child who does not
Know the mess she makes
Beneath the veil I watch you as
You make your own mistakes

And everywhere I go
I know you’re never far behind
I gave you all my faith
And now I pray that you will fly

The hearts of sisters
The souls of queens

CHORUS:
Em B7 C G
Had I known then
That you would be
The only one I know who had
The power to set me free

Em B7 C G
And if I knew then
What I know now
That you would be the anchor that kept
My light from going out

C D Em B7
Wherever I go
Wherever I’ll be
I’ll always remember what
we used to be

Our spirits can’t be broken
By anything

C D C B7
I will fight the fight that you began
Don’t be scared just take my hand
Do whatever you can to save our lands
And our dreams

And though the men will try to take you down
Stand up tall and knock them out
Give them something to talk about
When you leave
Track Name: Heart of the Forest
once upon a time they made an unkindness
and they fluttered like black raven wings
deep in the woods the world became giant
they found places to hide and to sing

but all at once
the day became night
and all at once
the nightmares burned bright

we sew ourselves back together
on the boulevard of dreams
the monsters might be bigger but we
still hold the keys
and i may not have the answers
i may not know the way
but this time we’re safe
safe as life

together they became, the stars in the darkness
and they rode like a cavalry of kings
as they all fell in love, their souls became tarnished
they chased stags and impossible things

but all at once
the night gave way to dawn
and all at once
the dreams breathed into song

CHORUS

do you give up your life
do you push them away
do you make room for lullabies
or wait for the day

do you watch from afar
do you wish you were wrong
do you inject your requiem
and deny you belong

after you and i the world fell to silence
and nothing would ever be right
i’ll find you again in the heart of the forest
and i promise the stars will take flight

CHORUS
Track Name: Sometimes (Demo)
we’re frail and confused and we’re violent
we struggle with so many issues
we’re ever so flawed, but all in all
i’m proud, so proud

and your kind is somehow the opposite
you’re strong and you’re brave to the core
you roam through the skies, you attack in the night
and yet you claim you’re the light

and i am not afraid of you
your kind or your god
i am not a helpless girl
i’m an ant on the battlefield of gods

sometimes we stumble and sometimes we fall
and sometimes we hit something good
sometimes we’re ruthless and sometimes we’re not
and sometimes we do what we shouldn’t

you and i don’t need to partners
we’re nothing but means to an end
the words that we say should be meaningless
“i don’t even like you” he said

sometimes we stumble and sometimes we fall

sometimes we’re ruthless and sometimes we’re not
and sometimes we do what we shouldn’t

they say he has nothing but archdemon wings
i say that he has me
he runs his fingertips along my cheek
“hush i’m right here, just breathe”

“don’t talk about her”
he’s mine to recover
we’re stumbling along in the dark

“you don’t even like me”
the pain fills my body
and now is the best time to start
Track Name: Enemy Camp (Demo)
You say you remember me well
But I don’t know you, I don’t know you

You say you’re my best friend
But I’m not me, oh I’m not me

Why do I feel I don’t belong
It’s been so long, It’s been so long
Why do I feel so all alone
Like a lone wolf

I’m not who you think I am
Cause I don’t know what I don’t know
I’m stuck in an enemy camp
With no where left to go
I’ll stay here waiting for my mind to come back
Stand by your side while my memory is black
You can count on that
You can count on that

I know that I used to be
So much more than a broken door

But that life’s just a memory
It’s haunting me and taunting me

Why do I feel I don’t belong
It’s been so long, It’s been so long
Why do I feel so all alone
Like a lone wolf

CHORUS

What am I waiting for
The keys to a broken door
Who’s gonna save me

All I know tonight
I was born to fight
No one’s gonna save me
