t'was never about only now Whether or not we can see it come around Always seems to point to something stronger, yeah A future we may never see It never changes a single thing Doesn’t matter if it all gets harder, no Burning hot like a flame Against the wind against the rain In life, in death, never fading away, no The tide gets high The seconds slip The hours on the clock say tick It doesn’t matter in the end, no one can take it away You´ll never defeat me You´ll never replace me You´ll never meet someone like me again These are my dying words You´ll never defeat me You´ll never appease me Please take my word for this, you know These are my dying words Some will come and try to take Try to burn and try to break My spirit costs more than your life, yeah They can try to no avail They may hate, but we will prevail We may pass, but we´ll never give in, no Outnumbered, it doesn’t matter A gang of fools, just empty chatter They don’t know a thing about it all, no Dragged down, not down and out Looking to something than just right now They may try, but they will never break us down No hold me now I´m falling down And I don´t know if I´ll resurface but if somehow you could allow a trail that´s more than mere lip service You´ll never defeat me You´ll never replace me You´ll never meet someone like me again These are my dying words You´ll never defeat me You´ll never appease me Please take my word for this, you know These are my dying words

There´s nothing to see just another day on my own Say, wouldn´t you agree? that I´m better off alone Yet sometimes I dream of a gentle hands caress a mutual esteem Yes, I may as well confess Days disappear without meaning, or a trace I persevere not seeing a single face Except for that one yes I see her/him in the hall second to none He/ whatever befall How will you ever? see my shadow in vain I´m thinking never yet I long for you again though you´ve led my mind astray Please believe me when I say For forever and a day I love you... As time goes by I see life wither away Outside a blue sky My room is dismal and grey But when he appears my heart misses the beat the taste of my tears suddenly turn bittersweet How will you ever? see my shadow in vain I´m thinking never yet I long for you again though you´ve led my mind astray Please believe me when I say For forever and a day I love you...

about

Unlike previous releases, the lyrics and inspirations on this one is a bit of a paradox” says singer/co-writer, Christian Granquist. “Some of our "usual" vocal topics like loneliness, isolation and of course death have become so much more relevant during the pandemic. And for the exact same reason they appear less relevant, as they become less metaphorical.
