released January 5, 2016

Ovaj album se u procesu snimanja promenio. Naišle su neke nove pesme koje su izgurale neke stare. Neke pesme su napisane pre više od desetak godine, neke su nešto mlađe, neke su nastale dok smo snimali album. Iako su starije i razbacane po vremenu bilo mi je bitno da budu zabeležene.

Uz veliku pomoć i podršku ovaj album je uspeo da se "desi" i htela bih da probam da se kroz ovo pismo zahvalim onima koji su mi pomogli i bili prisutni u ovom procesu: roditeljima na podršci od malena, pa i dan danas kad sam "velika" odlučila da se bavim muzikom, mojoj sestri Danici i braći Milošu i Filipu, njihova podrška je stalna i neiscrpna. Hvala prijateljima, Ani Đorđević koja me prva pogurala da nastupam opet, a uz nju i Nemanji Mosuroviću, na neki način su me usmerili i podržali u početku da više zapnem, a i trudu i podršci Lazare Marinković, Kornelije i Emme Szabo i Milice Mešterović. A tu su i Danilo Tirnanić i Dušan Veljković koji su svirali sa mnom na prvim važnim koncertima.

Hvala Goranu Grubišiću na pronalaženju divnih rešenja i davanja sebe u snimanju, hvala Goranu Antoviću što je sve ovo izneo i omogućio i na najlepšoj saradnji ikad, Marku Cvetkoviću što je uz mene i na ljubavi koju daje u muzici, Blagoje Nedeljkoviću što se uključio i postao deo ekipe. Marko Kuzmanović i Goran Stojković su takođe uticali na to kako će zvučati ove pesme. Hvala Dukatu Strajniću i bendu Stray Dogg na prijateljstvu i zajedničkom muzičkom detinjstvu i odrastanju. Hvala Mioni Bogović na podsticaju i preispitivanju, inspiraciji i podršci. Hvala Svetlani Đolović i Iki na muzičkom preispitivanju i savetima. Hvala beskrajno Ivanu Lončareviću na kreativnom, duhovnom, muzičkom i prijateljskom osloncu od trenutka kako sam počela opet da sviram i Dušanu Bauku koji nam sve vreme to omogućava.

Track Name: Unknown
How good did you want to be
Knowing you deserve to be hold
More than fear you know how to have someone
When it’s right
Exactly what you want
What you recognize of love
How decisive and smart
Every your move was
Pushed me deep, pushed me deep
Into of my own, into of my own
And now I am in the middle of your road
And all you got me is the unknown
is the unknown
How do I, how do I guide my love
When I am on my own, when I am on my own
Track Name: Alone
Alone alone alone
Guess it’s what I am
Without you
So evident again
Stressing the emptiness
Is what I’ll do today
And if I starve from this task
I’ll regain my strength and have a drink to smoke through all the hallways that lead me nowhere
I’ll think of your eyes, can i?
And how it feels so right
Without this terror of freedom of mine
Where I can not bear all the judgements I’m spared
And once again I’ll end up in shame alone
Alone alone alone
Track Name: Remain Calm
The laughs of the heart
Drift through the night
But somehow that sounds echoes with the loneliness of mine
I’m still here, sensing that breeze through the window
The sea gulls up high seem closer than the words
Of the ones passing by
So I let myself cry
Maybe some day I’ll be one of them..
Don’t get too far away
Remain calm and you may
See changes coming your way
Don’t get too far away
Remain calm and you may
See changes coming your way
What’s dear to my heart I hold on to tight
Cutting myself from the rest
Hoping the silence of mind will last
I’ll wait for my friend
Don’t get too far away
Remain calm and you may
See changes coming your way
Don’t get too far away
Remain calm and you may
See changes coming your way
Track Name: Keep Quiet
I always keep quiet
Just in case
Better keep quiet
Just in case
Since I know your thoughts reverse
And I don’t easily follow that change
If I keep it quiet
It's to ease up the chase
I hope you know that way I said what I want
I still didn’t change, I know what I want

I used to keep it quiet
Of recognition of my thoughts
I thought I couldn’t breathe if I’d speak
And everything would be lost
Including me
But I was someone else to become
Stop mingling my responsibilites
Keep quiet and not get exposed
And the fear was all I’ve got
And the fear was all I’ve got
I could’ve hid behind it
And the fear was all I've got
And the fear was all I've got
Track Name: Princess
You might not look typically nice in a dress
But for me you’re the perfect princess
Even if you cut that hair of yours
Your eyes glow with tenderness
And I’ll be chasing that kiss
No one can dismiss
And your eyes and mine might meet with fear
Yet we found our way to be near
To wake up tomorrow with you where I won’t be afraid
Let’s go driving around in the daylight
If you feel my skin in the way unseen
Once again I will give in
And your eyes and mine might meet with fear
Yet we found our way to be near
As the morning comes I’ll be right here
I’ll be right here for you my dear
You might not look typically nice in a dress
But for me you are the perfect
Track Name: Anxiety
Unstable I feel
Sometimes I don’t know where to begin
Sometimes you trigger all my fears
And this sensation must be some kind of a release
And I try so hard, try so hard, I tried so hard to be free
Sometimes we are wasting our days
But it’s so cozy and lazy down here
I’d really not dig any deeper
Who knows how bad it might be
Thus we freeze still
Somewhere in my sleep
Amid silence and breathing
Right there through my teeth It walks out, jumps over my sheets
Runs through the door, pisses on the streets
And then returns back home
I’ll be dreaming I’m disciplined
To make up for the day
Dream away all this frailty we gained
Cuddle me more, see how sensitive I’ve grown
I’ll dream of confidence and hope that some day I might wake up and a better woman
Track Name: Yield
I felt all this
I let you tear my fears
I let you hurt me dear
You were so eager to hurt intentionally
How deep can you loose wthin someone else
Whats worse than to embrace your own fears
Though your skin takes it all in
And your eyes will always say what you never will
I’ll eat up on your lies
I’ll sip up on your weaknesses you see
Pull on your tricks on me they shall bring peace
Have me as you wish, Have me as you wish
Track Name: Communicate
I am angry and sad
Don’t wanna feel this way
'Cos it produces hurt
And that I don't wanna do
I’d just need a hug to combine it all with love and set this hurt from my heart
I think it is right when you seek solution between you two
I think it’s a very grown up thing when communication is the key
I think that me needing you is not such a bad thing for me to do

So please don’t run away
Just because I said I need you
And please, don't walk away
Just because I asked you near, just because I did
And please don’t smoke away
Please keep this care awake
And don't leave me behind
I am angry, angry and sad
It produces hurt
And maybe I am not mature enough
Maybe you are not as well
Track Name: Someday
You came a little bit too early, you came a bit to late
You came to thunder away
You came and woke up all the pain
Brought yours along with mine to bear
I’m lost yet I glide along the way
To master my restraint
Can be so hard to sustain
It will take me somewhere where I ought to belong someday
You came a little bit too early, you came a bit to late
You came to thunder through again
But you are getting away
Am I supposed to stay, somewhere near or far away?
It will take me somewhere where I ought to belong
Track Name: Silence
As the silence puts me down to send my mind to rest
From all the stress that we live in
My feet so sensitive to walk any further
Your eyes lock in mine
With so much tenderness that touch defines
And I linger on between my sleep
And the aggressiveness that’s nothing more than passive
I wish to shelter my peace
And you
And you
And you

These moments
These days
This sunshine
Track Name: Grow
I accept the facts
And the order of things
They are as they can be
I knew you are the one
Who’ll be so far
Far from mine
And I’ll learn, I’ll learn to grow from this
I’ll learn, I’ll learn to grow from this
Shall I justify my chaos of dreams?
And the feelings that I haven’t seen through
Our society won’t know of the passion we overthrown
Good night my love, we’ll be fine
I’ll learn, I’ll learn to grow from this
I will learn, I will learn to grow from this
I will learn to grow from this
Whatever it is
Track Name: Cut Loose (bonus track)
i have tried to cut loose
many times i said to myself
c'mon try and cut loose
for the sake of what's ahead

i have tried to cut loose
for me and you not to bruise
i believed i cut loose
choice of mind felt quite well

when i did cut loose
for even my mind linked to your eyes
to your eyes and to your heart
and i gave in
with no surprise
i shall try to cut loose once again
I believe I am cut loose
For what I see ahead
For even my mind links to your eyes
To your eyes to your heart
And I give in with no surprise
not to bruise, not to lose you.
Track Name: I Can't (bonus track)
Am I really such a fool
Hate myself for my action
When I need to feel what I’m longing for
I just can’t get a true reaction
Is my fear destroying it
Forgive me I wish you could see my heart through me
I’ll be dreaming of you ‘cos its all I do
During these month of cruel winter
I can get myself blocked
And write this romantic song instead of showing you my love
Time is not healing time is only filling
My soul with pain
And happiness is only brought by you
‘cos you’re everything and in everything I see
And feel
No I can’t get you out
No I can’t get you out of my head
Fear is in my heart and it speaks so loud and clear
I can’t win
