Track Name: Red
Red

Not so long ago I was blue
Everything around me looked grey
There was no difference from the morning sun
To the pale shade of the moon

And then the light came to my life
And all the colours seemed so bright
It was as if I saw them for the very first time

I flirted around for a while with green
Because it made me feel it was spring
But then I came back to you
I should have never let you go

Because red is my favourite colour

I want to paint my door, my nails,
My guitar with it
I want to look as red as I can
There is no other colour for me now

The dragon appeared to me last night
He told me “my blood will set you free”
And it was then that I realize
I have been waiting for you all of this time

I flirted with green for a while
Because I thought that it was all right
But I was totally wrong
You were the one all along

Because red is my favourite colour
Track Name: Storm
Storm

I feel like I’m trapped in this crystal house
I feel like I’m trapped in my own life
Nobody cares, nobody does
I am all alone, that’s a fact

In a thunder night, all full of noise
All full of light, it’s driving me mad
All I can think with this background sound
Is that I miss you

‘Cause all I want is to be with you
Under this rain

Your words inspire me to be a better person
You’re the one that makes me what I am
There’ll come a day
You’ll feel the same
We’ll walk together, that’s a fact
But till that day comes,
What should I do?
Should I keep on waiting?

‘Cause all I want is to be with you
Under this rain

Your words inspire me to be a better person
You’re the one that makes me what I am
Here comes the lightning
Then comes the thunder
There is a storm
All around me
And all I can think, all that I want is to be with you
Under this rain
Track Name: Give me our first time back
Give me our first time back
I want to erase it
Just forget it all
Like it didn’t happen
I want a new chance
I want to repeat it
Delete it from your head
I want my revenge

You’re the one that told me
I could do it better
Let’s try it again
There’re in my blood
Those feelings for you
And I want to show you
What I am capable of

You won’t believe it
So give me our first time back
I can make your world turn
I can make your body tremble
Like a leaf
And that’s why
I think I deserve it
Give me our first time back

You’re the one that told me
I could do it better
Let’s try it again
There’re in my blood
Those feelings for you
And I want to show you
What I am capable of

You won’t believe it
So give me our first time back
Track Name: I need it
I need it
Everything you can give me and more
Every minute of your attention
Every second of your time

All the comments you can make on me
I need it

It’s a drug
It’s an urge
Whenever you’re missing it hurts like a deep wound
I am unable to cure, only you can heal it,

All the comments you can make on me
All the laughs you can have with me
In need it

Your kisses
All those tricks your hands know
Whenever you touch me, my skin burns, but it feels so sweet
I just want more

All the comments you can make on me
All the laughs you can have with me
All the love you can make with me
Only you is what I need

And I need it
Track Name: Our future is bright
I see it all,
The future,
What is to come
Don’t be afraid of my power
It’s just that,
It’s harmless

And it’s bright
Our future is bright
There is so much good to come
You would not believe it
Green fields, kids and a wagon
Our future is bright


So let yourself flow with it
Let yourself be with it
‘cause it’s bright

I see it all
The future
What’s to come
I understand you won’t believe me
But it’s true

And it is bright
Our future is bright
Full of colours and music
And all the things we care about
Green fields, kids and a wagon
‘cause it’s bright

Let yourself flow with it
Let yourself be with it
‘cause it’s bright
Track Name: Winds from the North
Winds from the North

Two thousand miles away
It is still so far
Only my feet to reach my goal
I lost my track a hundred times in the snow
It is so cold I almost can’t walk
But you my darling are
At the end of this road

So I will let myself flow to you
The distance can not matter
To this love that is so true

Winds from the North they will guide my journey home

I wake up everyday
Dreaming of my hometown
The one that saw me grow and then leave
Will people be the same?
Will they still hate me for being different?
It’s only you I am longing for
And there is where you are

Winds from the North they will guide my journey home
There is no strength that will keep me from going
All of the way I can see myself coming
Winds from the North they will guide my journey home

And when the night falls
Next to the fire
I will sing this song
It will give me strength to go on
To climb this hill
To cross that valley
And before I know
I will be with you
And I’ll touch you hair
And I’ll kiss your mouth
And this crusade will be soon forgotten

So please, please, North wind blow
So please, please, take me to my love

Winds from the North they will guide my journey home
There is no strength that will keep me from going
All of the way I can see myself coming
Winds from the North they will guide my journey home
Track Name: I miss you
Wonderful things are happening to me
And some of the credits are yours
You believed in me when no one else did
You saw back then what the others see now

I just think it is unfair I can not tell you all of this
I just think it is unfair I can not say out loud that I…

I can listen to River Man
And hold my tears long enough
The homesick of your iced land
Smoother as days go on

I just think it is unfair I can not tell you all of this
I just think it is unfair I can not say out loud
That I miss you, but not that way anymore
That I miss you, but not that way anymore

I miss the blue in your eyes
I miss how broad your back was
I miss the pale of your skin
To be honest, I miss it all

I just think it is unfair I can not tell you all of this
I just think it is unfair I can not say out loud
That I miss you, but not that way anymore
That I miss you, but not that way anymore

When I heard Nick Drake on the radio today
A wave of sadness surrounded me
I felt as if someone was pinning my heart
With a needle
And the urge of telling you this
And the need of talking to you
To see your face once more

‘cos I miss you (but not that way anymore)
That I miss you (but not that way anymore)
Track Name: Speechless
Speechless

There is a time when the words don’t come to you mouth
And speechless you get
As speechless as a stone

There is a time when everything you could say
Would sound like a lie
So you better shut up

If I could only tell you that I am all right
And we are cool and everything is ok
If I could simply tell you I’m going to spend the rest of my life
Taking care of you
That we will be a family and raise our kids happily
Following the laws of god
But how can I even pronounce those words
If I don’t believe them myself?

There is a time when the words don’t come to your mouth
And all around is dark
And you can’t even breathe

There is a time when everything you could say
Would sound like a lie
So you better shut up

It would be so easy if you could understand what’s going on
Read it from my mind
All that I want is for you to be safe, don’t suffer,
And hold you in my arms
While I cry this river of feelings for you
That flow down from my eyes to the floor
I wish that it could be another way
Of telling you I am leaving

There is a time when the words don’t come to your mouth
And all around is dark
And you can’t even breathe

There is a time when everything you could say
Would sound like a lie
So you better shut up

There is a time when the words don’t come to you mouth
And speechless you get
As speechless as a stone
Track Name: Lullaby
Lullaby

It’s certainly time for me to go to sleep
Such nonsense when you are not with me
Turn around the house, trying to find something to do
But I’m so tired I better get in to bed

And this lullaby in my head
The rhythm of the music fells like your
Fingers touching my hair
While you softly sing to me

I let myself go and there I get
Into the world that opens
when I close my eyes
across the courtain everything is possible here
you might even be with me this time

it is so warm in here
always spring and
it smells so fresh and green
I see us in a field
sitting on a blanket
watching nature before us
While you sing to me

Oba oba oba ohh

it is so warm in here
always spring and
it smells so fresh and green
I see us in a field
Rolling on a blanket
Enjoying nature around us
While you sing to me

Oba oba oba ohh
Track Name: Alley Cat
Alley Cat

I wish I could be faithful
I really wish
I wish I could be trusted
I really do
Whenever I try it
I always fail
I have the face of an angel
But the morals of an alley cat

Oh, oh, I am an alley cat
Oh, oh, I am an alley cat

Where you touch me
No one else does
It’s a hidden place
Between my soul and my heart
But if you ask me
To be only yours
I will disappoint you
‘cause I am alley cat

Oh, oh, I am an alley cat
Oh, oh, I am an alley cat

Give me one good reason to be
The bird in the cage that you want me to
I will die singing but I will certainly die
Some things can not be changed
It’s in my nature to be free
And this is how I want to remain

Got to accept me this way
Got to get what I have to give
This is who I am
That’s all I can do

Whenever I try it
I always fail
I have the face of an angel
But the morals of an alley cat

Oh, oh, I am an alley cat
Oh, oh, I am an alley cat

Whenever I try it
I always fail
This is who I am
Got the face of an angel
But I am an alley cat
