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.

Track Name: A Second Chance
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
Track Name: Rebirth
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
Track Name: Feeling Low
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
Track Name: Unraveled Lies
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
Track Name: Utopia
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
Track Name: Rainbow Machine
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)
Track Name: How It Was
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
Track Name: The Keepers of the Sky
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
Track Name: Have a Bite (Don't You Cry)
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)
Track Name: Who I Am
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
Track Name: In Disguise
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
Track Name: Away We Go
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
Track Name: Two Hearts
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
Track Name: Guide Me
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
Track Name: Reversed
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
Track Name: Chemistry
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
Track Name: When We Dance
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
