Cloudless

LYRICS

cloudless day and cloudless night, all my thoughts have gone

arriving with a broken heart, i will wait until dawn

seeing all the beauty of a brand new day

although you’re still surrounding me i let you go away

 

now today there’s no one here to blame

but time will tell that we are still the same

see me rise and see me lose my mind

see me fall and save me once again

 

watching lovers play along on a summers night

distant times when we were one echoing in sighs

but i will be the one who’s here, traveling through the day

i miss that strength you gave to me, that coloured fade from gray

 

now today there’s no one here to blame

but time will tell that we are still the same

see me rise and see me lose my mind

i am moving on, i am moving on

and on your way just sometimes think of me

about this option of our lives that wasn’t meant to be

keeping all of our moments deep in my heart

and the nearness of you

Losing Touch

LYRICS

it’s a hundred of birds and bees when i think about my apple tree

with the most beautiful fruits upon that i’ve ever seen all my life long

you’re the closest to heaven girl, the most shining brilliant of the world

i can never bee without you, come on fly with me through my love so true

 

i have always thought don’t talk to much

then what we’ll do is losing touch

the sweetest love burned in your mouth

again those words just brought us down

 

i do care about this and that, small problems came since the day we met

i’ll discuss it all inch by inch, until i think that we are through with this

it will help us to always be true, so there’ll be no gap between me and you

we can talk talk talk talk talk this out, i do love you so much let there be no doubt

 

i have always thought don’t talk to much

then what we’ll do is losing touch

the sweetest love burned in your mouth

again those words just brought us down

 

rose of red my heart so full of luck,

of love, of you my shining star

it burns inside rejoicing mouth

a lot of words, much without sound

 

i have always thought don’t talk to much

then what we’ll do is losing touch

the sweetest love burned in your mouth

again those words just brought us down

Calm Down

LYRICS

watch me walking, hear me talking, one half in, one half out

i lost direction, i lost connection, my head is aching, full of doubt

 

reason shows me the way it should be, burning heart a different way

early snapshots of innocent childhood, how i miss these sweet summer days

 

calm down, you’ll find your way through this life

relax, it’s only the turning of tides

i am sure you need them – so don’t let you down -

all these moments, ridden by doubt

to know that you’re alive

 

and in this place where messed up me dares to smooth out the wrinkles i caused

pumping rhythms seek salvation in blind alleys where i was lost

 

incomplete pieces of left and of right

pressuring sentences i hear at night

under my footsteps a trick of the trail

led by illusions about how to prevail

 

calm down, you’ll find your way through this life

relax, it’s only the turning of tides

i am sure you need them – so don’t let you down -

all these moments, ridden by doubt

to know that you’re alive

Sweet Game

LYRICS

good morning sunshine here i come, alongside sensations i run

a little overfilled sometimes, a given chance i never mind, feeling so perfectly aligned

 

i am on my way to dreamers ball, that leaky join that i adore

i am trying harder to possess, not realizing i regress, somehow addicted to success

 

and when stepped into this hall – feeling so tired of it all - a little light gave me a smile and said:

‘you might be ready to depart, let’s try to go back to the start into another time and space’

 

on this crowded avenue, we will see what we can do

we will see what we became, in this sweet ironic game

 

hello hello – i am back again still digging deeper in the sand

a little picture of the past forces me to pause and makes me laugh, i wonder what of this will last

it was in that ground underneath the stomping sound, will i believe in what i’ve found, and will i dare to turn around

 

and when stepped into this hall – feeling so tired of it all, a little light gave me a smile and said:

‘you might be ready to depart, let’s try to go back to the start into another time and space’

 

on this crowded avenue, we will see what we can do

we will see what we became, in this sweet ironic game

Dear Friend

LYRICS

my dear friend, i am thankful to see you again

it’s been a long time since we met

and after all a do regret the things i did, that made you cry

 

come over to the other side where lovers see with children’s eyes

we free our minds from unsaid things tonight

let’s walk along that riverside, where thoughts dissolved in endless tides

and let us go back to the ancient times

 

no space in between, together we release your lonesome tears

discovering that selfish line of daffodils and false divines

well still it hurts from time to time

 

come over to the other side where lovers see with children’s eyes

we free our minds from unsaid things tonight

let’s walk along that riverside, where thoughts dissolved in endless tides

and let us go back to the ancient times

 

down below the noise of pride, there will be just you and i

standing with our backs against the wall

lay bare what’s been put aside, sorrow tears that i will cry

standing with my back against the wall

 

through this endless flood

i do admit that i was wrong

try to reassure

the waves so angry of that storm

 

through this endless flood

i do admit that i was wrong

try to reassure

the waves so angry of that storm
