about

The Glass Child Sweden

Im an organized mess.I believe in the future,for Ive seen yesterday and Im still alive.When I was 18 I left everything I knew and moved all on my own to London to create the life I wanted to live & find the person I wanted to be. I learned how to build my home in my music and my words. When I sing or write, I'm not scared anymore. I believe in writing your own story,and that's what Im doing here. ... more

Track Name: I'd Like To Remain A Mystery
Can you hear me calling, calling
I’m inside that falling star
I’m not human I am your belief

I live inside whatever flies
Yeah I’m the story survived
I think I made a myth of my own life

Make a wish it will come true
If you become the author too
Become aware I see signs all the time

The life you’re leading now will be the story
you will leave behind
It’s all about the way you write it down

They say I’m losing touch with what is real
no one believes in what they feel

My story will survive
The myth of my life
No one knows what is real
or just fantasy
I reject your reality
It never made much sense to me
No one knows if I’m real
My life goes into history
and I’ll remain a mystery

I’m the myth you don’t believe in
I’m forever disappearing
Never found a way to live my life

They will take me to the ocean
Spread my ash across the sea
My story will go on
but was I ever really here?

Definition of complete detachment
Cause of death is not determined
What am I sacrificing myself for?

My story will survive
The myth of my life
No one knows what is real
or just fantasy
I reject your reality
It never made much sense to me
No one knows what I feel
My life goes into history
and I’ll remain a mystery

Oh I can finally see
what I was born to be
Those things you think you need
was never meant for me

I don’t believe in us, or what we’ve come to trust
’Cause there is so much more than what you’re living for

If you call this unreal
then don’t give me your symphony
for all the things I believe
Oh I can’t wait to see
all those who disagree
You won’t forget,
You won’t forget about me

They say I’m losing touch with what is real
no one believes in what they feel

My story will survive
The myth of my life
No one knows what is real
or just fantasy
I reject your reality
It never made much sense to me
No one knows what I feel
My life goes into history
and I’ll remain a mystery

The life you’re leading will be the story
you will leave behind
It’s all about the way you write it down

They will take me to the ocean
spread my ash across the sea
My story will go on but
I’ll remain a mystery
Track Name: The Haunted
Follow the river
Run like a sinner
Leave no track
so I can’t turn back

Words from my father
Signs in the water
Ignoring the facts
Hurting to distract

All this time I thought I was free
I’m counting my bones learning all of me
Don’t track me down I was born to leave
Don’t bother my name it was never me

I am losing my shadow
the evidence of what’s real
I run with the haunted
detaching myself from me

You’re chasing time you’re too blind to see
Eternity lies in the hands of thee
I’m the girl under water oh you will see
When you hear the storm you will think of me

Collecting my stories
Tales of beginnings
Leaving the endings
Mystery

The myth of tomorrow
My art and my sorrow
Detachment from circles of misery

You’re chasing time you’re too blind to see
Eternity lies in the hands of thee
Oh touch my skin so that I can feel
something more than what’s left of me

I run with the haunted
detachment from what is real
I’m breaking the mirrors
I can’t stand the thought me

You’re chasing time you’re too blind to see
Eternity lies in the hands of thee
Don’t track me down, I was born to leave
Don’t bother my name, it was never me

I run with the haunted
We’re called the unwanted
Not part of a system, detaching me

I’m made of tomorrows,
I’m feeding on sorrows
I’ll take all your morrow
Lay it all on my me
Track Name: Give Myself Away
Leave, come back again
Lock and throw key out, I can’t swallow
You’re my prison

I call you my friend
why do they keep telling me to fight you
They don’t know

Close off feelings
Convince me to believe in you
With all the glory

Sweet desire
Say they will admire me
And one day I’ll be free

But you won’t stop
Now I give up
You own me

I offer you my soul, if you take me with you
I swear I give my all, if you never let me go
I hold my breath ’cause I don’t need it when I’m with you
Just take me, breath me
I give myself to you

Your ghost lives in my shade
Everywhere I go I hear you whisper
All my secrets

Think I’ve gone insane
Felling something pouring in my veins
A ticking louder

I thought you said
You’d help me be a better me
So where’s the glory

Sweet desire
Said they will admire me
But I’m to blind to see

That you won’t stop
I throw my hands up
You own me
Track Name: Consumed by You
Consumed by you - The Glass Child

I laid the devil’s curse on you
for all those years you put us through
I’ve been living with your words around my neck

Now I always feel so wrong
’Cause you have shaped me for so long
A heart of stone and all these things I have become
I’m consumed by you

You made me carve i my own skin
Been on the outside looking in
Oh I died so young I killed myself for you

Growing smaller every day
Like I’m always in your way
And then blame it all one me
You can blame on me

Will you pull the trigger
Tell me what to say
I never learn
Am I in your way?

Been screaming loudless
all my life
I’ve had enough
make sure this time I’ll be heard
The payback that I deserve
I’m consumed by you

The glass I turned to
While being crucified by you
We play the skills that we’ve been dealt,
and oh I played it oh so well

Became a ghosts around this house
Distant smoke, you closed your eyes
The dead will dance for me tonight
I’m lead into the light

Will you pull the trigger
Tell me what to say
I never learn
Am I in your way?

Been screaming loudless
all my life
I’ve had enough
make sure this time I’ll be heard
The payback that I deserve

And I need them all to know
how you were valuing my soul
That you made me think just 10 years old
That I must be the devil’s child
Convinced me with your lies
A family of hidden crimes
I won’t be quiet this time
Been screaming loudless
All my life
I’ve had enough
I just want to be heard
The payback that I deserve
Track Name: Hit The Ground
Oh I see you
24th just down the street
You look up, our eyes they meet
In my heads those words repeating

I need to clear my mind up
Chemics and I forgot
To lock the door I cannot
Resist, oh make his hands stop

My stranger caught me bleak I was too drunk to speak
oh can you feel the absence there’s a lack of me

I am fallen with me starlight
Making poems out of tears
And the sky is way to close now
Is anybody there
Defreeze my soul, Lips so cold
Whisper softly in my ear
Flying high, close your eyes
And just a silent sound when we will jump and hit the ground
Two strangers shot each other down

Oh who needs you?
Does any one believe you?
Are you too scared to show oh
Does anybody know

You disappear as he inhales you
The angels are so near and you can hear
How they all sing for you, two strangers who
Forever will be ghosts inside this room

I was waiting for the longest time
I was lost but now I’m found
The silhouette I’ve grown to be
I watch as he’s inhaling me

I am fallen with me starlight
Making poems out of tears
And the sky is way to close now
Is anybody there
Defreeze my soul, Lips so cold
Whisper softly in my ear
Flying high, close your eyes
And just a silent sound when we will jump and hit the ground
Two strangers shot each other down

You disappear as he inhales you
The angels are so near and you can hear
How they all sing for you, two strangers who
Forever will be ghosts inside this room

I was waiting for the longest time
I was lost but now I’m found
The silhouette I’ve grown to be
I watch as he’s inhaling me
Track Name: Somewhere I Belong
Breathing in despair again and
I’m crawling away from you
Now my stomach hurts again
And I don’t know what to do

Spending my nights on the floor again
Empty bottles all around
I had a thought of where to go for a while
But I lost track of it in the night

Too old to be was strong
Too young to move on

To somewhere I belong
I’ve been wandering here for too long
So come and take me home
Somewhere I feel like I can belong

Maybe those things that haunt me
From the past of mine
They won’t go away until I find
Until I find somewhere I belong

There was a time when I packed all my bags
Thought I left who I’ve been behind
There were days when I travelled the world
As if happiness could be found

But I was born with this curse over me
Like an omen I know I’ll always end up here
and all my dreams die out with each smoke in the night

Too old to be was strong
Too young to move on

To somewhere I belong
I’ve been wandering here for too long
So come and take me home
Somewhere I feel like I can belong

I cut all my roots I don’t where I’m coming from
Scream my name and take me home

To somewhere I belong
I’ve been wandering here for too long
So come and take me home
Somewhere I feel like I can belong
Track Name: Letdown
What if I change the things I say
so it sounds better in your ears
I can tell you exactly
what you want to hear

What if i change the way i dress
So it looks better from your view
I can pout my lips to fame
and be pretty instead of true

I’ve been trying to stay real
and true and proud of who I am
All those ideals of how to look
I’ve been trying not to care

But I’m still holding my breath
I’m still watching every step
I’m still tip-toeing away
when I’m getting to ashamed of myself

I don’t want to be your let down
I’m scared like hell I’m not enough
I don’t to be your failure anymore

I don’t want to be your let down
I’m screaming loud without a sound
Have to find a way to
be the best of me
Failure scares the hell out of me

And the music that they’re liking
says nothing about the way
That I am disappearing
so I’ll keep it to myself

Though I’m mostly quiet
I’ve got a lot to say
but nothing seems to please you
so I’ll keep it to myself

I don’t want to be your let down
I’m scared like hell I’m not enough
I don’t to be your failure anymore

I don’t want to be your let down
I’m screaming loud without a sound
Have to find a way to
be the best of me
Failure scares the hell out of me

If I’m not good enough for you
Am I not good enough for you?
Your expectations I can’t live up to, no

I just want to be someone
To mean something to anyone
I’ve got to hurry up to be someone

I am fading can you wake me up
So I can be, all those things that I’ve been dreaming of
I’m the fall, this is the cutting of my wings
Oh you’re killing my belief
to be myself
and if I can’t make my own way I quit
Track Name: Creepy Little Story
There’s a story I once read
and it’s been bugging in my head
About this creepy little dancer called Sophie

She’s so pretty, she’s so small
but she’s tired of it all
She just wanna close the door and go sleep

You see this little creepy girl,
she has some trouble making friends,
she can’t seem to comprehend what life’s about

So she’s saying creepy stuff
like, being happy is a bluff
She’s only ten years old but still she’s had enough

Oh this little creepy girl
She is stuck in this world
She grew up just like me
Oh this little creepy girl
It turned out she was me

And they’ve been teaching me to talk
How to smile and how to walk
But I’m still creepy little me
Spoken words that have been said
spin around like a circus in my head
I’m still living in a dream
Oh I’m still Creepy Little Me

And in this creepy little story
there’s another girl called “Ana”
She’s living in Sophie’s creepy head

She’s screaming words that no one hears
Until Sophie’s skeleton appears
Running hours every day to hide her tears

And now we’ve come to the middle of this story
there’s a boy
Saying creepy little things to Sophie

Oh they became best friends
He used to sing her to sleep
It turned out he was a creep
He was a creep

And they’ve been teaching me to talk
How to smile and how to walk
But I’m still creepy little me
Spoken words that have been said
spin around like a circus in my head
I’m still living in a dream
Oh I’m still Creepy Little Me

Here’s the beginning of the end
So did she finally get a friend,
this creepy little dancer called Sophie?

Oh no she gave herself away
only her sola still remains
She disappeared, but still grew up and became me

And they’ve been teaching me to talk
How to smile and how to walk
But I’m still creepy little me
Spoken words that have been said
spin around like a circus in my head
I’m still living in a dream
Oh I’m still Creepy Little Me
Track Name: Hold On
Hold On - The Glass Child

Let’s find a way to be in this moment for eternity
Don’t ever wake me up, connected to infinity

Oh the passage of my time, do you see it like I do?
As if this is my end, love like we’ll never meet again
I push the sky away, I’ll be ghostly here with you
If I died right now, this moment would never end

Hold on to what you’ve got
And I will never let this pass me by
And if I hold my breath just long enough
Then this could be the rest of our lives

Am I holy now, singing loud, London is on fire
We’re the endless searching souls if we don’t breathe,
That’s my conspire

Oh just let me be, every minute of my life
And let them know that I was here,
Written in the stars at night
So not one little piece of my living fades away
I could live as if I’ll never live again

Hold on to what you’ve got
And I will never let this pass me by
And if I hold my breath just long enough
Than this could be the rest of our lives

Closer
Don’t be afraid come closer
I swear it’s worth the suffer
I promise we can fly before we hit the ground

One moment
If you can choose one moment
Where you would stay forever
Where would you choose to stay into eternity

Don’t question
I’ll make a last confession
I am so scared of losing what I gain that I’d rather have nothing at all
Track Name: Oceans
Come with me I’ll take you to the ocean where we can breathe
You and me together hand in hand just like it used to be
The time of moon is right to scrutinize
Free me

We used to be the ones who never cared about the others
Used to have another world, where nothing used to matter
We had our wings and our broken little pills
Bottle after bottle fighting gravity to stop this spin

And I remember when we drove all night
To find another place another time
But you decided to be free from me
You choose reality
Reality instead of me

No don’t let me down
Don’t go, I won’t be fine
How you can’t see
You’re taking life from me
Lover don’t speak
You always disagree
When we can’t see
We’re learning to believe
Believe in what we feel
So close your eyes
I’ll show you love tonight

It’s started out so slowly drifting further from each others
The violence every night and the silence screaming murder
I tried to give you time to get used to my escape
Every body down I will intoxicate

And the piano full of blood
From the songs that I’ve been bleeding
A bottle full of wine I am standing on the ceiling
I’m dancing here alone every night until you come
I just wanted to be holy but please just come back

Home, don’t let me down
Don’t go, I won’t be fine
How you can’t see
You’re taking life from me
Lover don’t speak
You always disagree
When we can’t see
We’re learning to believe
Believe in what we feel
So close your eyes
I’ll show you love tonight

And I remember when we drove all night
To find another place another time
But you decided to be free from me
You choose reality
Reality instead of me

How you can’t see
You’re taking life from me
Lover don’t speak
You always disagree
When we can’t see
We’re learning to believe
Believe in what we feel
So close your eyes
I’ll show you love tonight
Forever dies tonight
Track Name: I Will Lead You Home
When you're out of breath
With nothing left to give
When you're left behind
Laying on the ground
When all I see
is sadness in your eyes
When all you want
is reasons you can't find

This town is getting smaller ever day
I'll leave with you, we'll find another way
When you're left alone
Just hold on
I will lead you home again

Aimless watching people passing by
You're disappearing got lost in the crowd
Leaves are falling slowly to the ground
Lovers walking hand in hand without a sound

This town is getting smaller ever day
I'll leave with you, we'll find another way
When you're left alone
Just hold on
I will lead you home again
Track Name: Stuck In My Mind
Walking round in circels
I don’t know where I am
I keep looking back
at the road that I ran
Two steps forward, one step back
Is there a way out of my mind

I’m digging my own grave
I can’t control my hands move
I start to suffocate
You can’t see me can you?
I had it all planned out and written down
now I’m held back by my own mind

I’ve been reading books of wisdom
quotes and thougths of who we are
he said ”we’re all in the gutter
some are looking at the stars”

I have tried to find myself
searched for answers in the dark
sleepless everynight
I’ve prayed to every kind of God

Have to get out
out of my mind
teach me mortality
my mind is killing me

I’m so undone
Have to go on
I’m my own enemy
Show me reality
Observe me and keep me holy

The ones who have been broken
know they can survive
Find More lyrics at www.sweetslyrics.com
Though I may have fallen
I grew stronger everytime

I can’t find a way live
Been walking dead for so long
I read ”as long as you keep moving
you’ll end up where you belong”

Have to get out
out of my mind
teach me mortality
my mind is killing me

I’m so undone
Have to go on
I’m my own enemy
Show me reality
Observe me and keep me holy

Is there a way out of my mind?
Have to get out of my mind

There’s a tree grabbing hold of my shoulders
and a ghost flying over my head
A monster is crawling from under me
I scream, but in silence instead

Can someone come figure me out
I thought I was hidden so well,
but they found me somehow
They’re dragging me down
they’re making blind
Can someone take me out of my mind?
