Track Name: Just Surviving
Just surviving

How i hate to leave you darling
and how i love to meet you again
How i count the days and hours
and sometimes the seconds

How i miss your bright eyes and
How i long for your sweet lips and how they’re smiling
and how many tears you weep that i cannot dry

I’m tired of waiting here, i can’t wait to get home

chorus

I’m hardly living just surviving
until I hold you again

how far away from you
I can’t measure the distance
I’m singing a song for you
how I wish you would hear it

I’m tired of waiting here, i can’t wait to get home
I’m hardly living just surviving
until I hold you again
Track Name: Sky Without Stars
sky without stars


eyes are empty
and a heart is filled with clouds
darkness is approaching
through the city lights applause

the ticking of the clocks
ringing

bridge
there’s no time left, time is running,
time is running out


chorus
never thought it would be easy
but never thought it would be so hard

now the sky is empty
and a lake is filled with stars

seems they all have descended
because of my broken heart


oh this live is one
thats what I know

never felt so empty
my heart is filled with desire
I felt to end it all
before it even had begun

oh this live is one
thats what I know
Track Name: Soul Searching
soul searching

chased a butterfly today
I ran with rabbits through a field
I sailed with birds below the clouds
I dived with fish below the surf

chorus:
when my soul goes searching
and my mind is drifting free
i can imagine anything
could happen to me

dreamt i’d lay down i a field
listening to the grass grow high
felt the bugs where running
I was an airport for the bees

felt like a rock down on the beach
slowly moved by the ocean waves
from time to time i could see the sky
coming closer towards me

I was a spider in your room
in my net I caught your bad dreams
Yesterday You wiped me out
just because you like it clean
Track Name: Talisman
Talisman
1.
watching the leafs turn brown – time flows fast
feeling that bad luck sticks to my shoes, – and won’t get off
any where i wander – I seek love

2.
wonder why the stair-steps – always they go upwards
feeling the man in a black coat is – fond of my trail
help me to overcome – my inner sadness

Talisman – Save my soul
I can’t stand it – when bad luck grows
Talisman – help me now
Let me sail – into the dawn

3.
you might be a grain of sand – or copper stone
a shining ring of jewels, or a venus shell – on a leather rope
mine is a little folded – paper boat


Talisman – Save my soul
I can’t stand it – when bad luck grows
Talisman – help me now
Let me sail – into her arms
Track Name: Morning Light
morninglight
saude smooth bossa

Am9 Hm9
I like the cry , of the bird in the sky
I like the laughter of the men around the fire

I like sentimental mornings I like to dream (sleep) at night
I wonder why I always fall for sad eyes

chorus em hm7 am
tell me why do the stars at night
fill me up with love
why do they sometimes fall
and what are your dreams made out of?

Can't you let me stay here for a little while?
I'll be on my way in the first morning light
cause I like to climb up the hill all alone
I like to carry my weight all by myself

chorus
tell me why are the colours of the sky
my favorite colours of all
why do they somethimes fade?
when the morning comes.

Coda: C – G
and black as a curtain falls
the darkness of the night
untill it all comes down into the morning light
Track Name: When Will We Fly
when will we fly

two black roads divide in front of my cruising car
should i take the west one or should i take the one - sending me up
well i just follow the birds everywhere the birds following me
every place i go and every street thats kissed by my - silver beams

when will we fly

sons and daughters of the sky my fate lies in your hands
give my voice and trade it for a pair of wings - that take me everywhere now
i’d bring letters to all my former friends
and all left handed would get one with the sound that only waves make

when will we fly

bridge

i could make real sensations out of rainbows and - dancing clouds
live on the hillsides and let the moon and stars - glow in the dark
live on the green rocks and let the sun and rain - come around

when will we fly
Track Name: I Had It All
I had it all


I found out how to pick you up
out of your eyes – salty drops
gonna dry them up with a little bit of love
I’ll have it all

gotta love second guesses
first love gone take the second best
I know tenderness
I had it all ——

i’ll
shine like the snow melting in the sun
rise like the smoke disappearing in the clouds
I had it all

how I hate that he broke your heart
just take mine I’m gonna lift you up
let me be your next love
and if not?

i found a place to live
can’t find no places anymore
I’ll invite you to a bigger fire
I need your sweet desire ——

I found out how to pick you up
out of your eyes salty drops
gonna dry them up with a little bit of love
I’ll have it all

I come soft like a downy feather
gonna drown in your silk like skin
And when you’re done you can throw me away
and then I promise, I’ll be gone

i’ll shine like the snow melting in the sun
rise like the smoke disappearing in the clouds
and I’ll be gone because
I had it all
Track Name: Riot Raindrops
Riot Raindrops

Picking on
C am, C am, c F G
C am, C am, C F G am - G - Fm open

this city needs a riot
and i came here to inflame
your solitary heart.

i surely can’t deny it,
heaven sent a saint.
upon your arrival clouds burst into tears
and it suddenly startet to rain, down - on - me

bridge
G 7+,7, F 7 - fm open ://

the longing of my hands and nothing less (tiredness)
drops of rain on my skin are sweet caress
i pray for this moment to never end
or in a little while - to begin again

well 30 tons of water
can’t wash away my sins
but at least they can - clean my dirty hands

I’m still feeling dry now
you left me standing in the rain
and just to get you back here
i’d shoot the drops back into the sky -yes I’d try
Track Name: I Rise Up
I rise up

hey dusty wind, will you cool me down
when my mind is burning low

hey hot burning flames, will you heat me up
when my mind is freezing cold

chorus

hey my spreading wings, take me to the clouds
when I have to lift me up, from the dark

hey my running feet, take me to your town
when I can’t stay in the wilderness all alone

hey loving light, will you help me up
and shine my way out of the dark

when I fall down ‚ and I fall down
, i take you down with me
but Baby when I rise up and i rise up
I take you up with me ://
