This album is a soundtrack for a film that was never made. Against the backdrop of a city soaked in rain and neon lights, a tale unravels of new beginnings, old friends, betrayal and about a man haunted by a past he cannot escape...

"All those brief moments of bliss were now gone. The nights he held me in his arms, soothing that inner turmoil as only he knew how. All gone, scattered like ashes in the raging wind.
I never realized then why he’d come back. Now I know it was for me. We always knew that the time we had was not going to last, that the love we shared would spell our end somewhere down the line. So much hurt, so much violence, so much betrayal.
Despite all this there had been moments of solace, happiness, moments of pushing away that looming darkness. We fooled ourselves thinking we could somehow make it. That there would be time enough. That our love would somehow hold back the hands of time. We were wrong.
Once, driving through the city, blinded by the neon lights he said to me: “life is short, time is luck”. I never really thought about what he meant. Now it’s all I can think of. Time is luck. Time ran out…"

The creation of this album has been aided by several people. First, Mathias for creating the story arc and the characters. Second, Marcus for the splendid guitar on "Out of the Past"; and third thanks to Håkan for helping with the mastering.
