Track Name: Who Am I
Cannot find myself
In the thoughts I have
So who am I
And who will die
When there is no I
Still I am scared
I don’t know …
But I feel
Immortality
In one breath
And I let it out
Discarded all my doubts
Just one left in me
Where will I go
I don’t know …
But I feel
Tomorrow will be there
Like yesterday was
So don’t you worry
I see you around
I see you there
In a short little while
I don’t know …
But I feel safe
This life is like a thunderbolt
Short but full of energy
We are floating down the river
Until we meet the big wide open sea
I don’t know …
But I feel
Cannot find myself
In the thoughts I have
So who am I
Track Name: Picture
It’s time for an apology
Who will go first?
I know I must stand my ground
So I am quiet
I’ve let you so near me
That it frightened me
I’ve let you so near me
That it enlightened me
I’ve let you so near me
That it frightened
Picture in my wallet all the time
Gold turned into sand
While we spoke
It ran down my fingernails
Getting off
I’ve let you so near me
That it frightened me
I’ve let you so near me
That it enlightened me
I’ve let you so near me
That it frightened
Picture in my wallet all the time
So why do I love?
Why angry? You are wrong
Can’t stand to write another of these
Lovesongs
Oh darling please be here
Oh darling please disappear
I’ve let you so near me
That it frightened me
I’ve let you so near me
That it enlightened me
I’ve let you so near me
That it frightened
Picture in my wallet, picture in my wallet
Picture in my wallet
All the time …
Track Name: Keys
I was led to believe
That everything grows old
Waiting that the past unfolds
All those secret rusty roads
And it feels like I’ve lost the keys to my home
And it feels like the beginning of a show
And it scares me a little
All those past fragments and symbols
Cause I never found true love
When I think back it’s all blurry and gone
And it feels like I’ve lost the keys to my home
And it feels like the beginning of a show
And now it’s time to hide in the hay
And now it’s time to live the day
And it feels like I’ve lost the keys to my home
And it feels like the beginning of a show
Track Name: Come Home
I know
That your spirit is here
Watchin’ us from afar
I see
Your face on the water
Like time on the water
Come … come …
Come … home to me
I think to myself
Slow down your anger
And light the way with good thoughts
Cause I see
Your face on the water
Like time on the water
Come … come …
Come … home to me
Why … why …
Do you have to leave
So soon into the sky …
If we meet again
When we meet again
Oh we will meet again
I am ready tonight …
Long lost friends
Will unite again
Long lost friends
Are we ready tonight?
Oh I will look for you
On the other shore
Cause you ain’t home
I am ready tonight
I am ready, I am ready
I am ready, I am ready …
For you
Track Name: Parachute
Got me two tickets two ride
A leather coat jacket, a compass and a knife
Playing kids are gettin’ lost in the hay
Oh earthly train where do you take off today
Cause I was leaving on
Don’t coming back no more
I’ve got a parachute waiting on
Me and my friends alone
The depths of green fields a-rise
I don’t miss nothing but a goodnight ocean dive
Dusty roads over our head
Oh beloved living do me a favour and let me live
Cause I was leaving on
Don’t coming back no more
I’ve got a parachute waiting on
Me and my friends alone
Stone, paper, scissors I go
The wind takes me to the mountain snow
The sun of our fathers sets high
Never leaves a travelin’ man before he dies
Cause I was leaving on
Don’t coming back no more
I’ve got a parachute waiting on
Me and my friends alone
Me and my friends alone
Track Name: Won't Let You Down
If you keep building higher
These buildings of despair
If your world begins to crumble
And words can’t help you out of there
I won’t let you down
I won’t let you down, my love
If you cling to the stone
Wrapped around your neck
And hate is the only thing going
Through your sweet little head
I won’t let you down
I won’t let you down, always
What if we aren’t meant for each other?
What if this is our fault?
What if there’s no reason for me
To sing this song?
Don’t let me down
Don’t let me down
Don’t let me down, all the way
Surrounded by our emotions
Surrounded by our thoughts
Surrounded by everything
We wish to ignore
But I won’t let us down
I won’t let us down
I won’t let us down, all the way
Track Name: My Town
It’s a town that I love
Despite of the fact
That I am better off
Without all my possessions
And all my worries and faults
That are connected with these streets
And with all I have ever done
There is just one thing
I want you to know
You are not the reason I run
Hey hey hey
Everything is fine
Just one more day
And the highway will be mine
Everyone in my heart
Is coming with me
You all gave me a perfect life
What else is there to say?
The reason why I am seeking
Is not a simple one for sure
Cause all I have ever done with love
Is to give it up for you
Hey hey hey
Everything is fine
Just one more day
And the highway will be mine
No time to worry
No time to cry
We are deep down connected
And don’t ask me why
Never ask me why!
I will find a way
I will find a way
We have to find a way
Haven’t found this way
Track Name: Gun
I was leaving early on
In the silhouette of the sun
I always wanted so much more
Than this pistol or this gun …
Come on
I always wanted you alone
In the glow of the west wind light
And if you want me don’t be a fool!
You’ve got me hangin’ from the whisky blues
I hear you want me
I hear you want it all
I hear you are frightened
I hear you …
You better run
If you come dance with me …
Come just dance a little bit more …
If you just let me be …
Come dance till your mind breaks free …
Come on …
What do you want from me?
What do you want?
I hear you are tired
I hear you are dreaming on
I hear you are frightened
I hear you are reaching out for more
What if I, what if I
What if I, what if I
Waited too long
What if I, what if I
What if I, what if I
Get me another gun
Track Name: Retreat
Sitting here for centuries now
In this lonesome cave
And in the darkness I can recall
All the beloved names
All the beloved names
And when the winter comes
My only friends are
Prayer wheels and mountains
I learned to levitate
Even if I can’t show it
I crossed the river of pain
Standing still on the other shore
Standing still on the other shore
And when the winter comes
My only friends are
Prayer wheels and mountains
And when the winter comes
My only friends are
Prayer wheels and mountains
Sitting here for centuries now
In this lonesome cave
For my last bow
To shout out all the names
To shout out all the names
Track Name: Finding Peace
Cannot walk anymore
Finding shelter in the night
Stormy weather
Cannot destroy my inner child
All the wicked ways
We have left behind
Finding peace and serenity in the light
The world seems
So cruel and unfair
The good die young
And the bad leave without a trace
Is that heaven?
But your life has just begun
Finding peace despite of all the things we’ve done
Sunset arrives
Every time I feel warm inside
Precious life
Reveals itself when we die
Loneliness is a cold a cold war
But I
Find peace in my inner core
