        Shangri-La
Music: Lee, Thomander, Wikström
Lyrics: Lee, Lynn

Like a rose out of desert sand
Sweet mirage from a mystic land
Long hair, black as the darkest night
Magic woman, you shine a light

And I know, you could be fantasy
And I know, solid reality
Don‘t go, what if I live a lie
Don‘t go, I‘ll take the risk and try

I‘m living up
Cuz you gave me a reason
Live a life in a land of the free
You took my hand and I knew
You would show me the way
To Shangri-La

Midnight oil, still you burn for me
Sweet perfume, haze comes easily
Beating drums, dancing to the sound
Guide me home to your sacred ground

And I know, you could be fantasy
And I know, solid reality
Don‘t go, temptation can‘t be wrong
Don‘t go, this is where I belong

I‘m living up
Cuz you gave me a reason
Live a life in a land of the free
You took my hand and I knew
You would show me the way
To Shangri-La


        Unspoken Words  
Music: Lee, Leoni, Scherer
Lyrics: Lee

Here I lie awake
And my world is upside down
All has turned to grey
And I stert to hate this town
I try to cope, what happened to my life
Now the king of fools
Has finally got his crown

Oh Lord I should‘ve seen it coming
But I was so blind
When all out of nowhere
She entered my life
And I did let her go

Tonight, unspoken words
Inside, something still hurts
Deep inside

Would‘ve never believed
This could happen to me for real
Cuz I‘ve lost my head
To a heart that‘s made of steel
And here I stand with no more words to say
See me down on the ground
No, you‘ll never know how I feel

Oh Lord I should‘ve seen it coming
Come, answer my prayer
But if life‘s just a game
One thing‘s oh so true
I‘m gonna play this one with you

Tonight, unspoken words
Inside, something still hurts
Tonight, unspoken words
Next time, I won‘t make the same mistake twice

Looking back on endless broken glass
Cracks with every step I take
Can‘t get rid of shadows of the past
Out in the rain
Just me to blame


        Need to Believe  
Music: Lee, Leoni
Lyrics: Lee

Sometimes I don‘t know why
I feel I wanna start crying
I see the children‘s eyes
I‘ve seen their hope fade away

When a mother is crying for mercy
But no ones to hear
It‘s easy to turn one‘s head over
And forget all the tears

And I don‘t want to refuse, we can try
I need to believe
Don‘t lie, it‘s all about you and I
To make it our place to live in

Cool down and think about
There ain‘t no time for excuses, no
It‘s urgent to decide
Cuz we don‘t wanna let go, let go, let go

And I don‘t want to refuse, we can try
I need to believe
Don‘t lie, it‘s all about you and I
To make it our place to live in

Does someone know all the answers
Why people stare and just walk on by
It ain‘t too late for the healing
Let‘s give it wings to fly

And I don‘t want to refuse, we can try
I need to believe
Don‘t lie, it‘s all about you and I
To make it our place to live in
I need to believe
I need to believe


        Unconditional Faith  
Music: Lee, Leoni, Scherer
Lyrics: Lee, Chycki

I have often dreamed about “Escaped reality”
See me riding on the clouds of mystery
With a suitcase full of hope 
and one of wasted time
Hear me knocking on the gates of destiny

Take me where believe is free to fly
Cuz I‘m willing to try
Take me where my thoughts don‘t need to hide,
Unconditional Faith

I have walked across the bridges of insanity
Struggled for my balance on the globe
And the deeper I keep diggin‘ oh, 
to know myself
The more I realize the truth within

Take me where believe is free to fly
Cuz I‘m willing to try
Take me where my thoughts don‘t need to hide,
Unconditional Faith, yeah

Once you open that door
There‘ll be no turning back
All your inner fears will be floating away

Like an innocent dream
Unconditional Faith, yeah
I‘ve stept outside the darkness of eternity
I opened up my mind and I can see
And I‘m looking for a star 
that guides me through the night
A road that leads me nowhere‘s not for me

Take me where believe is free to fly
Cuz I‘m willing to try
Take me where my thoughts don‘t need to hide,
Unconditional Faith

Take me where believe is free to fly
Cuz I‘m willing to try
Take me where my thoughts don‘t need to hide,
Unconditional Faith, yeah


        I Don‘t Mind  
Music: Lee, Leoni, Scherer
Lyrics: Lee

I‘ve been pushed and shoved around and
I‘ve been called by many names
I‘m just a love child on the loose, yeah
And it‘s always been the same

I don‘t wear the latest fashion
And my hair grows way too long
Buddy, can you hold a secret
Here‘s what keeps me goin‘ on

I don‘t mind
I don‘t mind
They can talk about, maybe scream and shout
I‘m living day by day
If you don‘t like my style
I will give you my best smile
Give you my best smile

Shaking heads and disbelieving
Cuz I don‘t talk the way I should
But since I‘ve left the now behind me
Lord I‘ve never felt so good

I don‘t mind
I don‘t mind
They can talk about, maybe scream and shout
I‘m living day by day
If you don‘t like my style
I will give you my best smile
Give you my best smile

I Swear it‘s true, 
want a life that‘s worth living
There‘s no end just beginning
I won‘t stop for no sign on the way
I swear it‘s true, I can‘t live undercover
I was born to take over
I am ready, come what may


        Break Away  
Music: Lee, Scherer
Lyrics: Lee, Pedigo

How many times have 
I lied just to settle my soul
How many times have 
I tried to escape this black hole
Night after night, 
Always darkness, I long for the light
As I dive in an ocean of hope, 
With no island in sight

Time to break away, face another day
Find the courage to pull down the wall
That‘s built around me
Time to break away, and let come what way
Drop the chains of that dull indecision
And go all the way, this time, I‘ll break away

There is a story inside me waiting to unfold
An urge within to come out of this terrible cold
As I stop this illusion 
A world of confusion inside
Venus release me, 
Cuz I‘m on the verge to collide

Time to break away, face another day
Find the courage to pull down the wall
That‘s built around me
Time to break away, and let come what way
Drop the chains of that dull indecision
And go all the way, this time, I‘ll break away

And all those voices around me keep telling me no
There‘s no better place you can be
Than the one that you already know
But it‘s not in my nature, nor part of my plan
Cuz I‘m born a gambler
I‘ll roll the dice straight off my hand

Time to break away, face another day
Find the courage to pull down the wall
That‘s built around me
Time to break away, and let come what way
Drop the chains of that dull indecision
And go all the way, this time, I‘ll break away



        Don‘t Let Me Down  
Music: Lee, Leoni
Lyrics: Lee

And I stare at the face in the mirror
I see a man, and there‘s hope in his eyes
This empty room‘s so lost inside
Chasing memories of the past

Ain‘t no place, ain‘t no road where I‘m going
Cuz it‘s you all I need to show me the way
As time goes by, and you‘re not there
I miss you more and more every day

Don‘t let me down
For the time we spent together
Now I need you more than ever, baby
Don‘t let me down
We can change it for the better
All the world don‘t mean a thing
If you‘re not there

Was it you, was it me, doesn‘t matter
Time built a wall so hard to climb
Oh I was blind, but now I see
I still hope for you to come my way
Yeah, I‘m beggin‘ you to stay

Don‘t let me down
For the time we spent together
Now I need you more than ever, baby
Don‘t let me down
We can change it for the better
All the world don‘t mean a thing
If you‘re not there

Without your love the sun won‘t shine again
Need you by my side to soothe the pain
Tell me all 
that we‘ve been through was not in vain


        Right From Wrong  
Music: Lee, Leoni, Scherer
Lyrics: Lee

Since the very day I was born
Voices giving me warning
Boy be careful, cuz you‘re kinda
Spinning outta control, control

No, I don‘t fit the list of the “winners”
Ain‘t no call for “beginners”
And I‘m only gonna make it
If I‘m selling my soul, my soul

I‘m on the track now
I‘m never looking back
I know I‘m second to none

I don‘t care ‘bout those who know better
I keep on rollin‘ on and on
Live my life each day that‘s forever
And no one needs to teach me right from wrong

It‘s a neverending sizing
While the pressure is rising
I‘m a shadow in a ghetto
Tryin‘ to make its way out, look out

Always had it clear in my mind
Don‘t wanna follow blind
Wanna feel something real
Ain‘t no living without, no doubt

Can‘t hold me back now
I spread my wings and fly
A one way trip to the sky

I don‘t care ‘bout those who know better
I keep on rollin‘ on and on
Live my life each day that‘s forever
And no one needs to teach me right from wrong
Hey, hey, hey


        I Know, You Know  
Music: Lee, Leoni, Scherer
Lyrics: Lee

She says “This life ain‘t worth livin‘ ”
Cute little girl from next door
Night after night she gets beaten
By her drunken daddy that just got home

A million faces around us
Pretending we‘re blind ones
Who don‘t want to see
Those many hearts filled with sadness
Won‘t stop all the madness
Of stories untold

Hey soldier, what are you dreaming
In the gloomy cold embrace of the night
Children still moaning and screaming
That‘s no reason for you to end the fight

A million faces around us
Pretending we‘re blind ones
Who don‘t want to see
Those many hearts filled with sadness
Won‘t stop all the madness
Of stories untold

I know, you know
Secrets no one ever should keep
But we don‘t let show
And that makes us guilty of the same crime

The wait is long in the city
So many long for a cure
It‘s said that help‘s on the way now
With that my friend you can‘t be so sure

A million faces around us
Pretending we‘re blind ones
Who don‘t want to see
Those many hearts filled with sadness
Won‘t stop all the madness
Of stories untold

I know, you know
Secrets no one ever should keep
But we don‘t let show
And that makes us guilty of the same crime

Old man he‘s still working doubles
Cuz the check is not enough to survive
He‘s facing nothing but troubles
Ain‘t livin‘ and he‘s barely alive


        Rebel Soul  
Music: Lee, Leoni, Scherer
Lyrics: Lee, Chycki

There you go
You‘re the shadows now
Nothing to see but your eyes
As they‘re following me

Hungry heart
Screaming out lout for more
You‘re taking a chance cuz you‘re livin‘
Your life desperately

Hypnotiz, paralyze
Only now I realize
That you‘re lost 
and you will spin out of control
With your rebel soul

Wings of fire
Flying they‘re burning you
Unleash the spirit of anger
That‘s cryin inside

No one knows
Tomorrow‘s a mystery
You‘re riding your spinning emotions
And I just can‘t hide

Hypnotiz, paralyze
Only now I realize
That you‘re lost 
and you will spin out of control, ohh

Hypnotiz, paralyze
Only now I‘m more than wise
It‘s dark and lonely road 
that takes its toll
Your rebel soul


        Tears To Cry  
Music: Lee, Fragile
Lyrics: Lee

I can‘t live without
I still can feel your arms around me
And time cannot erase
Since you went away
I couldn‘t find a way to help me through
All the colours turn to blue

But you never gave me time to say I‘m sorry
And you know that‘s so true
So true

You will never know 
how much I could love you
Cuz you let me down without a reason why
Let me tell you now, 
my love will surround you
Even after I run out of tears to cry

We could‘ve found a way
It ended on a bridge to nowhere
And now it‘s hard to let you go

Dancing memories
They ask me who was wrong or right
They won‘t let me sleep at night

And our different worlds, 
so often got between us
It‘s all yesterday‘s rain
I have tried to stop in vain

You will never know how much I could love you
Cuz you let me down without a reason why
Let me tell you now, my love will surround you
Even after you turn loose and free to fly

You will never know how much I could love you
Cuz you let me down without a reason why
Let me tell you now, my love will surround you
Even after I run out of tears to cry


Bonustrack Ain‘t Enough   Music: Lee, Leoni, Scherer Lyrics: Lee So you tell me this is livin‘ Yeah, this is paradise Feeding cheap emotions And you‘re selling “Tantalize” I‘m sick of getting brainwashed By the media and TV Who scatter notes of freedom Selling false reality It‘s all a big mystery to me Another pride is left in agony Damned right, that‘s how the story goes All that‘s makin‘ me so bored Knowing I need so much more Cuz a little bit, Ain‘t enough, ain‘t enough Not the life I was looking for Ain‘t enough, ain‘t enough Ain‘t enough, no this ain‘t no World of mine In this superficial being Where everyone‘s a star Go get your 15 minutes fame run No matter who you are You seen to know what‘s good for me Just another step toward insanity Damned right, that‘s how the story goes Life‘s a treasure to be found Raise your head and look around Cuz a little bit, Ain‘t enough, ain‘t enough Not the life I was looking for Ain‘t enough, ain‘t enough Ain‘t enough, no this ain‘t no World of mine
