Somewhere in Stockholm

  • That's me right there on the corner, listening to Wu in my Walkman
    Neon lights at the water, reflecting the city of I'm lost in
    That's me right there on the corner, I one day would be leaving
    For a dream that I didn't have, that I'd one day would believe in
    Strange how the same place I ran from's
    The same place I think of whenever the chance comes
    It's inevitable cause wherever I go

    I hear echoes of a thousand screams
    As I lay me down to sleep
    There's a black hole deep inside of me
    Reminding me, that I that I've lost my backbone
    Somewhere in Stockholm
    I lost my backbone, somewhere in Stockholm

    I'm from a place where we never, openly show our emotions
    We drown our sorrows in bottemless bottles and leave them to float in the ocean
    I'm from a place where we never, seperate people from people
    Some generalize, but in general I still believed that we are treated as equals
    My father, my mother, my sister, my brother, my friends and my family's there
    My hope and my money, my innocence in a sense, almost lost everything here
    Rught where I was founded, is right where I'll be found dead
    The streets of my backbone until I get back home

    I hear echoes of a thousand screams
    As I lay me down to sleep
    There's a black hole deep inside of me
    Reminding me, that I that I've lost my backbone
    Somewhere in Stockholm
    I lost my backbone, somewhere in Stockholm

    I'm not alone, I am the fire that burns not of the city, but out of the 'burbs
    A river that's just dying of thirst, I am a reverend lying the church
    A cracking in the pattern, a miracle waiting to happen
    I promise that never was kept, one of those moments you'll never forget
    I am that feeling inside the one we all know but can't really describe
    I am the blood spill, but I'm in love still

    Somewhere in Stockholm, but I'm not alone
    Don't have to get by on my own, I'm finally home
    Hemma I Stockholm

    I hear echoes of a thousand screams
    As I lay me down to sleep
    There's a black hole deep inside of me
    Reminding me, that I that I've lost my backbone
    Somewhere in Stockholm
    I lost my backbone, somewhere in Stockholm Writer/s: Daniel Adams-Ray, Henrik Jonback, Jonas Wallin, Petter Tarland, Tim Bergling
