Sven B. Schreiber Well, I think Fredrik Larsson is more progessive when he doesn't attempt to write prog... Hence, in my opinion, this album - which he calls "a much more pop-y attempt than ever" - is his most progressive one so far, and his masterpiece at the time of this writing. All songs clock in around four minutes, just enough to unfold a rich set of ideas, but without those unnecessary bells and whistles that are stuffed into so many prog epics. The deft and versatile songwriting with its catchy - yet unobtrusive - melody lines and lush - yet not overblown - arrangements is of a kind that I've met only once before - in the music of Sean Scanlon with his legendary band "Making April". Even the vocals sound quite similar. This might become my "album of the year 2017"! Favorite track: How It Was.

Sitting on the edge of a long forgotten time The memories from long ago Images and dust are my only guides to you in a world gone by, a love once true A simple sign to show the way and I will carry on Yet not a raindrop from the sky Chorus: But then I heard you calling from afar You told me stay just as you are to find our second chance Light will dance We'll meet again there Falling through the dark You’re the only light I’ve had in this muted world we’ve ended up You say you love the sun then I can be your second sun When the night is cold I'll keep you warm Chorus When I am awake Tell me all is well and that you’re still here with me Hold my hand and smile Keep those thoughts closer to sunrise Every tale that’s told is another song to write When the night is out I’ll paint the stars You say you know it all but we have only scratched the top There's beauty here, I know it's true A simple sign to show the way and I will carry on I see a raindrop from the sky My love we’re here, so promise me Don’t waste your precious tears There’s so much more to see Let us give ourselves a second chance Chorus

Rebirth 04:25
Dear, I know in time these wounds will fade But now you leave me with an empty void I shouldn't feel betrayed But I, thought that we'd write our timeless song And now I'm standing in the rain and wonder where it all went wrong I won't give up I still have so much to give There's someone out there who will see my worth I don't need you There is nothing left to lose in misery I've found my rebirth Time, it moves so slowly now you’re gone I hear your voice in every melody Your name in every song But I, have to forget what was back then 'cause now it's time to let it go and get back on my feet again I won't give up I still have so much to give There's someone out there Who will see my worth I don't need you Time to let go of your hand In misery I've found my rebirth Your smile kept away the darkness The world seemed to glow And now I'm standing on my own Alone with the show I'll write a different song now One that's without you somehow I don't need you Time to let go of your hand in misery I've found my rebirth I won't give up I still have so much to give There's someone out there Who will see my worth I don't need you There is nothing left to lose In misery I've found my rebirth I don't need you I've moved on

Feeling Low 03:31
I'm feeling weird today Like something is missing don't know what it is The skies are unusually grey And the sounds they are distant a solemn abyss Chorus: When you're not around here by my side I crave the warmth that you bring to keep me sane I hope you'll come around and believe that I've tried And that you'll be here again with me I’m feeling low today The hours are passing and I’m left behind Just like, when you went away I’d stop you from going if time could rewind chorus I'm feeling low today I don’t know how to wake, don’t know how to live The world once so colorful has lost all its spark There's nothing to give chorus I'm feeling low today Like something is missing I know what it is

The things that she had always dreamed about, her deep desires She had to show them all Grew up in poor conditions yet you saw her eyes sparked fires She'd rather fight than fall She turned her can't's to can's and her dreams to plans Chorus: She's at the top of everything but she's alone She would escape if only she had known All deceptions were a game to her eyes Until facing the unraveled lies [instrumental] As she was standing by the shore to face a new arrival who'd change her life for good She didn't know that it would start a struggle for survival Upsetting where she stood Her sacrifice for gain was all in vain [instrumental] Chorus
5.
Utopia 02:45
I know I'm not perfect I have my flaws and I'm aware But the thing I'm sure about is how much for you I care I know you're such a skeptic but you can believe There's nothing that we can't achieve 'Cause when you smile at me I'm in utopia I'll take you near or far Wherever you please Forever cannot be but with you I don't care So will you be with me? I'm down on my knees I'm coming for you, my love I'll do anything, anywhere You shine like the stars above Just ask, and I'm taking you there I'm not a mind-reader Sometimes my words are not the right ones But I speak my honest mind and show my love through actions It's not like in the stories where it's a flawless plot I only offer what I've got Chorus I'll do anything, anywhere Whenever you need, I'll be there

A little girl, with sadness in her eyes Filling her days with craft tools and butterflies The heart is happy but a piece is gone Daughter and dad all alone (Rainbow machine) A little girl, with sadness in her eyes Her mother gone ascending into the skies One day she thought it out and made a plan Being with her loved in the stars Fly away to reveal the unseen Fly away in a rainbow machine Crayons and glue A device worthwhile Fly away into the unknown Rainbow style! A girl and boy, teamed up with tools in their hands Working together, cutting colorful strands "Give me the glue", she says decisively Building their wondrous machine Fly away to reveal the unseen Fly away in a rainbow machine Crayons and glue A device worthwhile Fly away into the unknown Rainbow style! Endeavors can be halted Waking from every dream This cannot work the girl cried out would she ever see her mom? The boy gave her an embrace and peered into her eyes "All we have to do is try Know that I will always be by your side!" So fly away to reveal the unseen Fly away in a rainbow machine “Sugar ignite!” A trip worthwhile Fly away into the unknown Rainbow style! (Rainbow machine, rainbow machine)

How It Was 04:02
I still remember that sunny summer week like it was it yesterday Our secrets woven in the shade Every smile so easy The rest of the world They didn't matter at all They didn't matter at all That’s why I can’t believe you When you say this has to end I don't understand This unrequited love you extend I never guessed that you’d fall that way Please get back up, forgive the past Maybe that's too easy to say, 'cause I don't understand I only wish we'd go back to how it was I still remember We dared the coldest lake and climbed the tallest trees The world belonged to you and me We were young and crazy The hours melted away It didn’t matter at all It didn’t matter at all That’s why I can’t believe you When you say this has to end Chorus And if you go, I'll grieve you But I'll know that it's not the end Chorus

At dawn, she wanders through the woodlands Summoned by prophecy Shadows appearing and voices are nearing Hush, the hunters and the kingsman have captured two beasts of fire She hurries in freeing one innocent being Born of light Destined to find The wyvern of the wind Forever entwined A moment’s doubt but inside her eyes He sees the fire They take to the sky Rise again Another waits in chains Full of despair Another waits to feel the air At last, the castle looms before them A shade of the midnight sky Stay in the shadow and out of the star glow Rush, to conjure a diversion There is no more time to waste Breaking the stone wall and into the nightfall Born of light Destined to find The keepers of the sky Forever entwined Side by side Together they soar above the clouds They make for the shore Free again A way to start anew and breathe the sky So let us fly to newfound heights A snap, an arrow takes flight The kingman's returned to fight The girl is struck and falls from the sky The wyvern dives for her from up high The kingsman reaches for his quiver again Just one more shot, and it’ll be the end But to his surprise, the dragon won’t fight The bow drops soft at his side The beast won't kill, he starts to realize As the blindfold falls from his eyes The child of light A blind sacrifice The keepers of the sky were worthy the price A moment’s grief but inside her eyes returns the fire Again she will rise Born of light The keepers of the sky

The rain is falling now and it all comes crashing down She's sad and rather grumpy The pressure in her head makes her wander with a frown She's tense and oh, so jumpy "Calm down, my cranky darling I think I know the cure" Don't you cry I will make some food for you, love Don't you cry A meal will dry the tears away Patience now, we're almost there I have somehow made pizza for you Just sit tight You'll be alright Have a bite It was one of those days She overslept, forgot her phone Her hair was a disaster And Murphy had his way She dropped the ice cream from the cone and then the bus just passed her "My love, such dreadful monday I think I know the cure" Don't you cry I will make more food for you, love Don't you cry Dessert will dry the tears away Patience now, we're almost there I have somehow made brownies for you Just sit tight You'll be alright Have a bite Darling, I know just how you feel I've been there many times but don't let a little rain ruin your day By tomorrow, this will only be a silly old memory You will be okay Don't you cry I will make more food for you, love Don't you cry Some sweets will put a smile on your face Patience now, we're almost there I have somehow made cookies for you Just sit tight You'll be alright Have a bite (Don't you cry)

Who I Am 05:39
Leaving you behind Never am I looking back Again Diving into blue Never have I felt so lost In myself I break free The world crumbles beneath me What have I become In your eyes I’m searching for answers Tell me who I am Longing for a change Trying to escape my chains Again Standing on the edge Can I take that final stride From my past Chorus
11.
In Disguise 02:38
Somewhere deep inside your mind you feel alone in the unknown Though I'm looking at your face and ask you why You don't reply There's something far behind your eyes You're in disguise But tears streaming down You're hiding far behind a mask and it's my task to get you back I will not give up on you Don’t turn away So much to say And I wonder what is on your mind when you are blank That vacant look A secret book chorus Somewhere deep inside your mind you feel alone in the unknown Though I'm looking at your face and ask you why You don't reply
12.
Away We Go 03:10
I'm on my way In minutes I've traveled a hundred miles when connected to a virtual world of trials Stuck between demons and zombies in a dreadful land Help arrives - a beauty with sword in hand She fights off a fiend, asks if I'm okay I follow her when she shows me the way And away we go Side by side in cyberspace Though it's an electronic place I still perceive your e-embrace Away we go On a date by rendered candlelight or joining forces in a fight It could be tough so hold on tight There she is Passing time inside this game Killing zombies, she doesn't even have to aim "But who's this guy? He's low on health and almost dead They will end him, I better let him go ahead There's something about him, he does seem nice So cute when he tries to fight fire with ice" Chorus Now where did she go, we got lost in this maze I don't wanna lose her, my heart is ablaze Should have gotten her mail That's such a big fail Oh crap, reality calls I'm ragequitting now, can no longer stall But in this real life pain I see this girl detain So upset, she's looking at me And I'm thinking, "can it be?" Chorus
13.
Two Hearts 02:54
She clings to his charming smile And the promises they made She hopes he'll return one day Before the memories fade He thinks of her longing eyes And wishes he had stayed He pictures her dreaming still Until the memories fade One look Two hearts, three smiles and then a thousand miles One word Two hearts, three hopeful years and then a hundred tears She tries to forget the past And how she was betrayed But still she won’t let him go When will the memories fade? One look Two hearts, three smiles and then a thousand miles One word Two hearts, three reckless years and then a hundred tears
14.
Guide Me 04:07
I don't know where I'll go from here It seems so meaningless My deepest fear, I can't express I don't know what I've done so far What counts as good or bad and what you are, I'm going mad Guide me out of these doubts I have And take me away from these thoughts I'm stuck within Help me out of these doubts I have Take me away from this numbness that I have inside my skin I don't know how I'll see this through If I can stand the pain But maybe you have felt the same I don't know why we are this way Two beings without cause Perhaps one day, we'll cherish our flaws Chorus I am drowning Here in the rainfall Is this the end? I am hoping That I will rise but cannot ascend Lonely night turns lonely day Leading me astray Always when I wake I’m nothing Chorus
15.
Reversed 03:40
Your mind, so confused Twisted and reversed I've tried endlessly Still I fear the worst Stay closer to me, don't give in I know your mind's lost dismayed, exhausted But please don't do anything stupid now There'll be better times Can't lose you now that I've finally found you Dream now of songs from very long before Sleep to feel somewhat whole Tell me what I can do to help restore your shattered soul Chorus Old songs, for you they cannot take a hold We'll never dance like back then Let go, you cannot fix the broken past The sun will rise, once again Chorus I'm here to help but you must Let me come closer first But I know your mind, is numb and confused Twisted and reversed
16.
Chemistry 03:30
I see you standing there Cold and all alone I just want to hold you close You don't seem to be aware of the chemistry that swirls around us I am sure it shows I'm reaching out to you Take my hand, we’ll run Counting every star we've found Breathe, close your heavy eyes I'll take you where you want to go and promise I will stick around We can't deny this Stars in the skyline Gleaming just for us Dazzling and dangerous Shining like bright lights Come and you will see The road is paved in reverie before us Come, you can run to me And if you should fall I'll be waiting just below I know you are aware of the chemistry that swirls around us Making time slow down Let's take a chance now Chorus Come, run away with me Breathe, close your pretty eyes
17.
We were dancing on the edge It was inevitable - we were blind We slipped and fell down But our hands are still intertwined Wasn't prepared It came out of the blue But we can work this out I'll work it through with you Our steps are synced with the melody I feel invincible in this chemistry It shouldn't be but when we dance together in the night Everything feels right And I dread the morning When I have to let go of your hand! I am in love! (Is it true?) I am in love! (Start anew) Here with you All the world seems softer now How the city is awash with your light I let a breath out, with my head toward the sky so bright Your skin on mine My doubts are withering We're crossing the line Your lips are quivering All the whispers burn in my memory You are the winter moon You are the summer sea Chorus With our eyes on the edge The water just below, blue and wild We jump and yell out With our hands still intertwined! Wasn't prepared It came out of the blue But we can work this out I'll work it through with you Our steps are synced with the melody We are invincible in this chemistry Chorus
