synthpolice This album is amazing. Beautiful, relaxing chilled vocal synthwave that is really evocative and emotional. I recently got the vinyl edition in addition to the deluxe edition of the album I bought upon first release. On the frosted clear vinyl, the tracks are in a different order an it has the single version of Beyond Memory, which is a shame because I felt the extended version that's on the digital version was better.

Still a fantastic album start to finish! Favorite track: Purple Sun.

noircomete Sleepwalking came up on recommendations in YouTube. I gave it a listen and just really loved the song. Favorite track: Sleepwalking.

x0riente One of my earliest contacts with synthwave, total nostalgia overkill & still not getting old. It's dreamy pop music, not perfect, but with all the synth gloss and uplifting curiosity to make you smile. To me, it's the "purest" album of this project in terms of over-all aesthetics (despite my preference for "Control"'s supreme cover art) - glad to see it released on vinyl at last. Favorite track: Beyond Memory (Extended Version).

BEYOND MEMORY Take it, I surrender the attack Nevermind the killing Dazed and numb, stripped to the core Our moment was stolen Time has won Wounded souls Our moment was stolen Time has won Beyond memory Faces I see Mean nothing to me Only shadows in my dreams Beyond memory Why is it me And no one can see Only shadows in my dreams Fake it I surrender To the fight I can see the darkness in your eyes Down to the bone Your victim was chosen Time has won All along Your victim was chosen Time has won Paint me, with your colours And your love Nevermind the killing

Born To Live 04:11
BORN TO LIVE Hunted all my life Nowhere else to hide Fear inside me grows Stepping in the dark We were lonely souls (pretty fierce inside) We were the lonely souls And so it ends You and I Never gonna let you go We're running wild You and I We’ll survive We're born to live, not meant to die Howling in my mind Steps on foreign land Pack of crying wolves Running in the wild We were the lonely souls (pretty dead inside) We were the lonely souls And so it ends You and I Never gonna let you go We're running wild You and I We’ll survive We're born to live, not meant to die Spoken: The hunting is over One last kiss (No more lonely souls) We’re slaves no more And we run free (even if we fall)

SLEEPWALKING Embracing the night sky Hunting down the one who hurt my love Erasing a lifetime I walk alone I’m a lone wolf Watching it unfold observing it I'm just an outsider looking in How did it ever become so real I’m just a hunter and you’re the kill Slave of the night Sleepwalking Now I can sense you’re near Coming my way Sleepwalking I feel both love and fear Night after night Sleepwalking Now you can sense I’m here Leading your way Sleepwalking I live for blood and tears You’re searching for someone Who is gone and I can’t change it now We are damned I can’t change it now I can remember, I don’t forgive I'm just an outsider looking in Fatal encounter, won’t let you win I’m just a hunter and you’re the kill Slave of the night Sleepwalking Now I can sense you’re near Coming my way Sleepwalking I feel both love and fear Night after night Sleepwalking Now you can sense I’m here Leading your way Sleepwalking I live for blood and tears Coming closer, heart is frozen eyes are wide won’t regret if you hold me tight tonight Getting closer, mind is frozen shut your eyes You won’t feel it, if I hold you tight tonight

It Kills Me 04:35
It Kills Me This is Love You are mine I think we wished at the same time Same minute, same second, same night That you would come into my life It kills me That you’re not here tonight Hear me I’m crying for your love I need you here tonight To warm my heart and hold me tight I don’t know How to cope Without you I feel rather lost No maps, no structure, no bones As if the world was made of smoke It kills me That you’re not here tonight Hear me I’m crying for your love I need you here tonight To warm my heart and hold me tight And when I see the stars at night I can't forget the things you said: "The light is shining on us all Wherever we may be next And if you ever feel alone Just look up to the skies at night And feel my eyes look back at you Cause even if we're far apart You'll be forever in my heart" And it kills me to know that you had to go It kills me to know that you had to go

Purple Sun 04:26
Purple Sun Fifty states all in my mind pure gravity Calling me with crashing sounds towards the sea Forgotten roads, and gasoline On the last hour, we leave So, if you love me lead the way, You’re gonna drive me further away from here I know this is the only chance we got We don’t need reasons only us tonight I know you’ve made up your mind, We can’t go back Letting go for the first time You feel alive So, if you love me lead the way, You’re gonna drive me further away from here I know this is the only chance we got We don’t need reasons only us tonight And I can feel tomorrow won’t be the same, even when seasons change, we’ll always be insane Let’s jump right into fate, let’s take a chance We can go anywhere Just trust the sky above us baby, Let’s swim against the tide tonight, As life keeps getting harder baby We’ll drive towards the purple sun Come on, come on, come on, come on Let's swim agains the stream Towards the Purple Sun

EMPIRE OF LOVE A moment like this is what we need To save us Holding you closer simplicity Between us Sun in the sky And you’re still mine Fueling the fire Crossing the line And now I’m losing myself to you In this Empire of Love Now we have a chance to breakthrough In this Empire of Love Lost in the silence There’s space between the longing Loving you deeper complicity For ever Sun in the sky And you’re still mine Fueling the fire Crossing the line And now I’m losing myself to you In this Empire of Love Now we have a chance to breakthrough In this Empire of Love With you by my side I climb these walls And you’re gonna catch me if I fall The feeling within is one trust Oh Baby, so I’ll be your queen and reign over us

DIAMONDS IN THE ROUGH Dreaming in the bedroom No one else will see Whispering some secrets Only you and me Breakfast at the bright spot Coffees two or three I don’t need no sugar, Cause I got you with me And it’s funny how the story began Foreign feelings in a faraway land Late afternoon and I can’t get enough Baby it’s you and me We’re diamonds in the rough I just want your presence I don’t need your past Baby we’re the same We’re diamonds in the rough We’re diamonds in the rough And it feels like summer Come let’s hit the beach Think I need to be taught Hope you wanna teach Driving down the highway California free Only lady silence Sitting in between It’s so weird how the story began Foreign feelings in a faraway land Show me the way 'Cause getting there is tough Baby it’s you and me We’re diamonds in the rough Just you and your presence Let’s forget the past Uh baby we’re the same We’re diamonds in the rough We’re diamonds in the rough Everybody’s here They’re all having fun Hanging in the crew babe But you’re the only one Finding you was hard love Sifting through the mud Will forever keep my diamond in the rough My diamond in the rough
8.
One Of Us 04:28
ONE OF US Where do you think you’re running so fast It’s not your fault To be so blue inside What if we gave you another chance To change your world And be like one of us Walking around for hours Desperate in our darkest hours we fall And fear this life Give me your sadness and I Will pulverize it with my gun The stars are shining tonight You’ll never be alone As long as I am here What if you could have another chance To show the world The life you have inside Wandering around for hours Desperate in our darkest hours we fall And fear this life Give me your sadness and I Will pulverize it with my gun The stars are shining tonight You’ll never be alone As long as I am here Cursing all love and the lovers Only seeing black around you Chasing the spades and the arrows Only knowing dark inside you So run baby, run baby Just run with me, run with me So run baby, run baby You’ll never be alone
9.
COUNTING STARS Let’s run away We’ll walk by the river side I never meant to lie, but the stakes were high Counting stars all night, counting stars til it’s bright I don’t care where we are if you’re by my side I can still feel your pain I can still hear you say You and I will pass the test of time Leaves and wolves, the waters and the sky Inside, forever wondering why Set in stone, a mission on our own Frozen the morning found us, holding hands East to the Sea, Our love won’t just drown Under the red moon we did seal the pact We’ll be gone so soon, there is no way back.

Your Truth 04:27
YOUR TRUTH You told me your truth, I told you mine You didn’t judge me, and I didn’t care You were so broken, so fragile, You had to be handled with care Hold on tight to me, don't let me go. 'Cause I will be your lighthouse in the storm When you’re down the only way is up Hold me tight and never let me go I‘ll be strong for you I won’t let you down If you hold my hand then everything will be alright I washed your wounds I held you in my arms Entirely immersed in your pain And then when your tears began to roll down I knew that you wanted me to stay Hold on tight to me, don't let me go. 'Cause I will be your lighthouse in the storm When you’re down the only way is up Hold me tight and never let me go I‘ll be strong for you I won’t let you down If you hold my hand then everything will be alright I’ll be there for you I will hold the fight I will stand the pain and help you heal the scars When you’re doubting yourself And you hide from the world But you can’t be on your own You know I will be there Our connection is strong And I’ll help you carry on Just keep going Always holding Always holding on Just keep going Always holding Always holding on

80's Girl 03:56
80's GIRL You always showed me the way How to keep myself just to myself You were a young girl, then Just trying to survive Trying to be someone You gave up dreams and hopes for The only child you had And now I hope I made you proud 80’s girl you belong now To Berlin, to the night In this life, open heart I know deep inside you’re my neon light You deserve to fly When you close your eyes Straight into the sun I know that it’s your dream You work so hard now and then Always caring for somebody else You packed your travels away Then you chose to stay And sacrifice for someone That’s why you always make me proud 80’s girl you belong now To Berlin, to the night In this life, open heart I know deep inside you’re my neon light Don’t let the past hold you back
