Track Name: A. Maya feat. Ruby - Never Saved Me
My memories are a siren
And I've fallen to her voice
You have me on a leash
And the promise that you'll be waiting
Is the promise that pulls me back into your waters

It feels like I'm dying, but
I've never had a hero to save me

You see me as a reward for the hardships you've imposed upon yourself.
You're so deep in your fantasy that you've lost your grip on reality,
But you're the one who ties me to the anchor and you let me drown.
How do you expect me to call you a hero when you've never saved me?

I know that you don't love me
So save your breath for someone
Who will actually believe in all of your lies
Oh

And yet you've somehow managed to pull me back
Into your murky waters
You promise me the sky,
But you really intend to bind my
Ankles and watch me drown in the sea of what we once were

It feels like I'm dying, but
I've never had a hero to save me

You see me as a reward for the hardships you've imposed upon yourself.
You're so deep in your fantasy that you've lost your grip on reality,
But you're the one who ties me to the anchor and you let me drown.
How do you expect me to call you a hero when you've never saved me?

I'm not a princess
Locked in a stone tower;
I don't need a knight

You see me as a reward for the hardships you've imposed upon yourself.
You're so deep in your fantasy that you've lost your grip on reality,
But you're the one who ties me to the anchor and you let me drown.
How do you expect me to call you a hero when you've never saved me?

All I wanted was for someone
To take my hand and show me
A world without this pain.
The restraints you've given yourself are
Rules in a game that I simply do not have time for

I cannot be your saviour -
No, I'm only human
And perhaps it's time you also gave up your act
Because you can't be my hero
If you are not willing to save me
Track Name: A. Maya feat. Prima - The Fox
Sometimes I wonder where you are now,
What your dreams are like?

I held on as long as I could,
But now I'm standing in
The fire.

It took me so long, but my dear -
I do see
It wasn't my fault,
No matter how hard you try to pin it
All on me.

I see your face in my dreams,
Your birthday on my calendar -
And oh, oh, oh -
How I wish I were free.

I want to burn our memories
Like I burn these pictures

And it took me so long, but my dear -
I do see
It wasn't my fault,
No matter how hard you try to pin it
All on me.

Your eyes -
Your lies -
Desperation and demise.
Your eyes -
Your lies -
Play the victim, but I know...

Your life is a waste,
A disgrace
To the human race

And I know you're a fox,
Even behind the fool's mask.
You are a liar
And you are a cheat -
So heartless as
You cry foul play.

And finally I can say
I have the strength
To say I'm over you.
Track Name: A. Maya feat. Maika - Blood
I close my eyes to see blood.
I close my eyes to see red.

I close my eyes to see blood.
I close my eyes to see red.

Beyond my shut eyes,
A voice is calling.
I've tried waking up,
But I'm stuck in this dream for all of eternity.

If I open my eyes,
I will see the world and the reality that I have avoided.
I will see this world for what it really is;
Though once clean to me,
It's now smeared in blood.
Track Name: A. Maya feat. Prima - Anga's Aria
Take me with the rain
To where my beloved lies -
To his corpse, so low
In the earth.

Take me to where his life had
Ended - so cold
And by his own dagger.

I beg these memories
Cease to haunt me,
But tell me, my paramour:
Do they still haunt you as well?
Oh, take me -
Take me to him!

Take me to my dearest,
Where he now is bound
In flesh.
Track Name: A. Maya feat. Yohioloid - Cold
I've lost my dreams to visions of you.
This darkness has become my home,
But you've led me back to warmth.

How do I whisper
When my heart
Demands so much?

Oh, just
Tell me you love me
And I'm worth the tribulations.

Even if the nights grow much colder,
And even if my dreams turn to frost, I
Know that I will someday feel
The warmth of your embrace, for you gave
Me the
Fire when
My heart was cold.

Oh, I can't whisper
When my heart demands so much.

Oh, just
Tell me you love me
And I'm worth the tribulations.

I know that I am flawed,
But stay with me.
And I'll show you who I am
Underneath all the apathy.
Just don't look away,
For I fear you'll see someone better than me.

How many hours have I lost
To thoughts of you?

I'd give my life to make you warm again.
Even if that meant that we could no longer be,
I just pray
You don't see how cold I am.
Track Name: A. Maya feat. Daina and Big Al - Night Rain
I can't say the words -
I want you to see these dreams, but the fear consumes me
And I fumble in the sea of my doubts and apprehensions.

I can't say the words -
If you were to take me on, I'd only pull you down.
I can't say the words because I'm afraid of losing you.
You taught me how to love and rise above all my doubts and self-loathing.

You say,
"Put your best foot forward
And face your fears
Like the goddess that you are."

I want to be by your side forever,
Even when the world is crashing around you.
Believe me when I say
That you make my grey skies blue.
Would you mind
If I told you that I
Want to spend the rest of forever with you?
Would you spend it with me too?

You see me as a saint,
Though I saw myself as a lowly cog
Because I gave into the lies that others fed me, but you taught me the truth;
You helped me open my eyes and now I'm aware of who I truly am.
You've unbound me from all my chains.

You say,
"Put your best foot forward
And face your fears
Like the goddess that you are."

I want to be by your side forever,
Even when the world is crashing around you.
Believe me when I say
That you make my grey skies blue.
Would you mind
If I told you that I
Want to spend the rest of forever with you?
Would you spend it with me too?

You are always there,
Standing beside me as I awaken
From the soft
Dreams that you lull me into the currents of your lullaby.
You right every wrong, if only for a moment, and you set my mind free.

I want to be by your side forever,
Even when the world is crashing around you.
Believe me when I say
That you make my grey skies blue.
Would you mind
If I told you that I
Want to spend the rest of forever with you?
Would you spend it with me?

You helped me open my eyes and helped me
Accept all these withered petals falling out
Of my life and you
Helped me realize that I
Am worthy of better than this.
I should never be given a bitter kiss.
My wounds have now ceased to bleed.
Track Name: A. Maya feat. Daina - Take This Pain Away
Don't say goodnight; the stars have yet to fade.
I am yours for the night,
I am yours for eternity.

Hold me tight, love,
And save me from myself.
I have locked myself in
This cage and I have swallowed the key.

Please tell me that this
Isn't our final goodbye -
Tell me that this is forever -
Forever.
I'll do whatever it takes to keep you
Here with me.
So just love me.
Take this pain -
Take it away.

I look in the mirror, and it's like I'm
Looking at someone else;
I change day by day, yet you're never going to be satisfied.
Peeling away my skin until I look like your dream girl.

Please tell me that this
Isn't our final goodbye -
Tell me that this is forever -
Forever.
I'll do whatever it takes to keep you
Here with me.
So just love me.
Take this pain -
Take it away.

Can't you see what you
Mean to me? I love you more than this
Life that I was given,
So stop running away from me;
I just want to be with you -
Be with you until the sky falls down on us.

Please tell me that this
Isn't our final goodbye -
Tell me that this is forever -
Forever.
I'll do whatever it takes to keep you
Here with me.
So just love me.
Take this pain -
Take it away.
Track Name: A. Maya feat. Tonio - Can't Let You Go
I can't move on - relived
Her death a hundred times again;
Can't forget.

Found her name in the obituary -
Placed flowers
On her grave, but still can't let her go.
Imogen, I can't let you go.

The days are blurring
Together, your life a
Fog that clouds my mind.
I didn't know you, but
I swear that you and I...

Imogen, I've loved you
Since the beginning of time.
Now I'll love you
From beyond
(Love me from beyond the grave)

The days are blurring
Together, your life a
Fog that clouds my mind.
I didn't know you, but
I swear that you and I...

I pass by your house and I swear I can feel you here.
Track Name: A. Maya feat. Avanna - Lies
Lies -
Cutting so deep and
Leaving me bleeding.
It feels like I could be dead
'Cause in your eyes, I had
Meant nothing, even though you were everything to me.

The power in
Words is something that you will just
Never realize;
To lie and lie
And lie -
Lie, lie, lie, lie, lie -
It doesn't matter, as long as you're
Never caught!
