Track Name: Reverie (feat. King Deco)
when you’re screaming out
but you can’t make a sound
you know
it’s only a dream
when you’re back hits the ground
and things turn around
you know
it was only a dream
cuz nothing is as bad as you think
even when you’re pulling at the seams
when the lights go out you still got me
ohh uhh ohh uhh ohh ohh
detours lead to barricades
and home is far, you’re friends are fake
i’ll be there to clear the way
ohh uhh ohh uhh ohh ohh
and you
you know my love can hold you down
you know my love can hold you down
and you
you know my love can hold you down
you know my love can hold you down

when the roof caves in
and you just can’t win
you know
it’ll only get better, only get better
when you fall too far
can’t go back to the start
you know
it’ll only get better, only get better
nothing is as bad as you think
even when you’re pulling at the seams
when the lights go out you still got me
ohh uhh ohh uhh ohh ohh
detours lead to barricades
and home is far, you’re friends are fake
i’ll be there to clear the way
ohh uhh ohh uhh ohh ohh
and you
you know my love can hold you down
you know my love can hold you down
and you
you know my love can hold you down
you know my love can hold you down
Track Name: Fortress (feat. Joni Fatora)
no light in the distance
we were shadows holding on
(holding on)
all the things i resisted
now far from gone
(far from gone)

armour on
you use your heart as a fortress
ticking bombs
all the weapons are useless
so can you just let down your guard
before everything is marred
armour on
you use your heart as a fortress

how’d you get so far away from me
how’d you get so far away from me
la da la la da da
how’d you get so far
la da la la da da
how’d you get so far away
how’d ya get so far away
you use your heart as a fortress
you use your heart as a fortress
you use your heart as a fortress
la da la la da da
how’d you get so far
la da la la da da
how’d you get so far

armour on
you use your heart as a fortress
ticking bombs
all the weapons are useless
all the weapons are useless
you use your heart as a fortress
so can you just let down your guard
before everything is marred
armour on
you use your heart as a fortress
la da la la da da
you use your heart as a fortress
la da la la da da
you use your heart as a fortress
Track Name: With You (feat. Quinn XCII)
you hate when my head
hangs low after all
these things you said
trust is not your fault
can’t expect you to understand
take it back to when it began
had i just followed all my plans
i wouldn’t have ended up so lost
now we’re both so off
and i’m still the one to blame
can’t say we’ll stay the same
can’t say we’ll stay the same


baby, baby stay here
i need some time to clear my mind
we both know it’s a problem
when you call me all the time
and i’ll say
i may just need a little bit longer, ya
i may just need you to be stronger
if i’m not there with you



if i’m not there with you
if i’m not there with you
i can’t hold this fight in anymore
if i’m not there with you
i can’t hold this fight in anymore


baby, baby stay here
i need some time to clear my mind
we both know it’s a problem
when you call me all the time
and i’ll say
i may just need a little bit longer, ya
i may just need you to be stronger


if i’m not there with you
if i’m not there with you
if i’m not there with you
if i’m not there with you
Track Name: Sleepwalker (feat. Joni Fatora)
sleepwalker, where do you go
in the night
i find you in my dreams
i find you in my dreams
sleepwalker, visions always
just repeat
you’re always in my dreams
you’re always in my dreams



did you come to make it right
did you come to say goodbye
did you come to make it right
did you come to say goodbye
did you come to say goodbye
did you come to say goodbye
sleepwalker, sleepwalker
where did you go



now i’m sleepwalkin again
now i’m sleepwalkin again
now i’m sleepwalkin again
now i’m sleepwalkin again
sleepwalker, sleepwalker
sleepwalker, sleepwalker



sleepwalker, sleepwalker
sleepwalker, sleepwalker
now i’m sleepwalkin again
now i’m sleepwalkin again
sleepwalker, sleepwalker
sleepwalker
where did you go



now i’m sleepwalkin again
now i’m sleepwalkin again
now i’m sleepwalkin again
now i’m sleepwalkin again
sleepwalker, sleepwalker
sleepwalker, sleepwalker
Track Name: It's All On U (feat. Liam O'Donnell)
at first i didn’t think i was cut enough to bleed
then i saw my secrets getting swallowed by the see
through a telescope
i saw a diamond glow
how you brought me home
i guess i’ll never know

with god as my witness
never had it so good
jumping into love
fire sets to dry wood
started off as noth’n
now it’s gold
and it’s all on u

i get my kicks from you
i get my kicks from you

can’t see, dark road, driving up the hills
looking at the girl, hand barely on the wheel
got no where to go
we can take it slow
how you brought me home
i guess i’ll never know

i get my kicks from you
i get my kicks from you

with god as my witness
never had it so good
jumping into love
fire sets to dry wood
started off as noth’n
now it’s gold
and it’s all on u

and it’s all on u
and it’s all on u
and it’s all on u

kicks from you
i get my kicks from you
Track Name: Illenium & Sound Remedy - Spirals (feat. King Deco)
remember when you asked me to paint you all my dreams
i told you a sailboat no compass just us and an open sea
i’ll sing like a siren, out island is floating,
the sail in the blue sky is our only curtain
i’ll show you a spiral
staircase that only your eyes can see



i’ll spin your walls around
around like spirals
won’t you go all the way down
down like spirals, like spirals
like spiral stairs to a cave by the ocean
unravel all for you
all for you
all for you



remember when our paradise was green grapevines and leaves
do you remember when the shorelines grew for you and me
i’ll build you a house where the hallways will always
lead you to bedrooms where i will be waiting
i’ll show you a spiral
staircase that only your eyes can see



i’ll spin your walls around
around like spirals
won’t you go all the way down
down like spirals, like spirals
like spiral stairs to a cave by the ocean
unravel all for you
all for you
all for you
Track Name: Without You (feat. SKYLR)
i feel you
shutting down
after we’ve had one too many
of these talks
you say you
wanna stay
but i know you’d rather get up
and walk away
can you hear me
crying out for you, crying out for you ya
i’m not ready
to let this go, we’ve come too far

hey, i won’t as you to stay
i promise we’ll be okay
we’re running out of time
i’ll let you clear your mind
i just hope you can find, a way

cuz i can wait a little bit longer
and i can be a little bit stronger
i know that things won’t be the same
but i’m willing to take the blame
cuz i don’t wanna be
without you

da da dah da duh da duh
i don’t wanna be, without you
da da dah da duh da duh
i don’t wanna be, without you

i’m not me
and your not you
when we’re fighting like this
can’t we just go back to where we were
i know you
think i’m naive
but i know that you’re worth fighting for
and i believe

and i won’t as you to stay
i promise we’ll be okay
we’re running out of time
i’ll let you clear your mind
i just hope you can find, a way

cuz i can wait a little bit longer
and i can be a little bit stronger
i know that things won’t be the same
but i’m willing to take the blame
cuz i don’t wanna be
without you

da da dah da duh da duh
i don’t wanna be, without you
da da dah da duh da duh
i don’t wanna be, without you
cuz i don’t wanna be, without you
da da dah da duh da duh
i don’t wanna be
without you
Track Name: Only One (feat. Nina Sung)
i guess i’ll be the first to say it
i haven’t felt this good in a while
you tell me i’m the only one that they would all like
but you’re the only one that kept me alive

ahh ohh, you were the only one
you were the only that kept me alive
you were the only one, the only one
that was on my side
you were the only one that kept me alive

even after all this time
fear can grip me at night
but somehow
somewhere you make me believe
i can see it in your eyes
so take me as your breathing proof
for everything you’ve ever done for me
i won’t lie in fear no more
i hope you realize
you kept me alive



ahh ohh, you were the only one
you were the only that kept me alive
you were the only one, the only one
that was on my side
you were the only one that kept me alive

you saw my insides, from the outside
you saw a chance, gave me truth, so i survived
you saw my insides, from the outside
you saw my insides, from the outside
you took a chance, gave me proof, without a goodbye
now here i am just happy to be alive

ahh ohh, you were the only one
you were the only that kept me alive
you were the only one, the only one
that was on my side
you were the only one that kept me alive
Track Name: I'll Be Your Reason
oh, so i’ll be your reason
we won’t talk again
oh, so i’ll be your reason
we won’t talk again
oh, so i’ll be your reason
that we won’t talk again
i made you fall slowly
i made you fall slowly
oh, so i’ll be your reason
Track Name: Afterlife (feat. Echos)
after we’re gone
who will breathe the earth we lost
we leave nothing but our thoughts
and memories beneath the dust
so when this body fails to mend
and all my demons they come crashing in
will i start to begin
or will i fade away with them

and in the afterlife, tell me we’ll be fine
in the afterlife, tell me we’ll be fine
and in the afterlife, tell me we’ll be fine
in the afterlife

and in the afterlife, tell me we’ll be fine
in the afterlife, tell me we’ll be fine
and in the afterlife, tell me we’ll be fine
in the afterlife

so when this body fails to mend
and all the demons they come crashing in
will we start to begin
or will we fade away with them

and in the afterlife, tell me we’ll be fine
in the afterlife, tell me we’ll be fine
and in the afterlife, tell me we’ll be fine
in the afterlife
