Endless Refrains (free) 03:48
Endless Refrains I saw you in hurt I saw you in pain Tangled up in words Endless refrains It’s all digits At the end of the line For good or for bad For rise or decline A new heart A new mind Over with sadness This loss of time Let’s make some room Open the space There’s nothing that equals The end of the chase I saw you in hurt I saw you in pain Tangled up in words Endless refrains It’s all digits At the end of the line For good or for bad For rise or decline We need a new heart We need a new mind Get over with sadness This loss of time So let’s make some room Open the space There’s nothing that equals The end of the chase (Let’s make some room Open the space There’s nothing that equals The end of the chase I saw you in hurt I saw you in pain Tangled up in words Endless refrains)

You Blew my Mind I was lost in time I was lost in reason I was lost in heartlessness I got lost in rhyme I fell out of season I lost the east I lost the west I wasn’t centered But obsessed Until you blew my mind I look into your eyes And all I see is freedom It seems such a stupid thing to sing And now the past is all lies I’m in your garden of eden Songs about heartbreak are now passé You danced to Raspberry Beret You really blew my mind You blew my mind The waiting is over My heart won’t need a chauffeur or a guide Because you drive.. You%u2026 Now here we are The rest is useless There ain’t no meaning There ain’t no law I see a falling star But I ain’t got no wishes left I have known highs I have knownl lows But I have known no one Who’s blown my mind Like you do

Escape Lane (free) 03:19
Escape Lane I fear the profane I curse everything That looks sacred and secular I'll go insane If I don't take the escape lane to the place where it occurs Can the light turn to green again? I hold my breath My lungs collapse I want to scrutinize What's going on inside I've been wrapped up In myself and in the view I have developed on my life Can the light turn to green again? I'm moving on I see the sun But my feet They don't recognize the ground I'm singing this song But my heartbeat's pushed By another type of sound Can the light turn to green again? Can the light turn to green again? Green again

Going On 02:52
GOING ON Where are you now my love? Are there stars or stones above? Have you lost your memory? Do you remember history? Has all been completed? Has time come for sweetness? Has it all Has it all been done? Is there a way to forget? Is it a waste to regret? I know there still are some tapes Some videos Still in good shape Has all been deleted? Has all anger been defeated? Has it all Has it all been done? Has it all Has it all been done? Embrace me in the sun The race has been won The race has been won And the same race can only be run once Embrace me Embrace me Where are you now my dear? Have you found another stratosphere? Are there any mouths to feed? Any new ideas.. Somebody you.. Need to feel better? Is there still heavy weather Going on? Going on Going on Going on

Born in the summer of love In the summer I can breathe In the sun I can believe In the summer I can sleep Between islands between seas In the summer In the summer In the summer I can see See the wood for the trees In the summer I can sweep Sweep the dust away From behind my eyeballs In the summer In the summer All set for love No thinking of a burden He was born in the summer of love In the summer I can breathe In the sun I want to believe In the summer I can sleep Between razors between leaves In the summer (I can) In the summer (I can) He was born in the summer of love

Red Car 02:34
Red Car I’m driving as fast as I can I’m a fast driver A man on the chase I’m trying to lose your Nasty face A red car is chasing me A red car is part of my dreams I’m trying to get rid of it So it seems You’re a good girl How was I supposed to know You’re a good girl But why didn’t you show it to the world What were you afraid of? Show it to me girl Or were you not made to love me? A red car is chasing me A red car is part of my dreams I’m trying to get rid of it So it seems You’re a good girl How was I supposed to know You’re a good girl But why didn’t you show it to the world What were you afraid of? Show it to me girl Or were you not made to love me?

Grand and humble Come in a way you really feel Come in a way that is ideal Come in a way That makes all liars stumble Come in a way that’s really real Come in a way that shows appeal Come in a way A way that’s grand and humble Grand and humble Come in a way you wanna be treated Come in a way no one can beat it Come in a way that makes all pain left crumble Come in a way that’s really real Come in a way that shows you healed Come in a way A way that’s grand and humble Come in a way Is it coming our way? Grand and humble Come in a way It is coming our way Come in a way that’s really real Come in a way that shows you healed Come in a way A way that’s grand and humble Come in a way that radiates Come in a way that eliminates Come in a way That makes all your walls tumble down

Surrender 05:08
Surrender I hate this waiting I’m afraid of latency I was delayed From the first moment on, you see I need tons of time And I don’t have the time I have been waiting for a woman like you my dear Come out of the shade My sky’s turned blue And if you need some time Just take it I know what it is Always intrigued By the books and the stories I know Stories of gold Always struck By fiction and songs about love But instead of this waiting I could walk and feel weightless Wade into your water Get wet and act shameless I could stop wondering Wondering, wondering What it is I could walk to the stars Hand over my heart to yours Just because I could be naked untouchable Tender and tough Surrender Surrender Surrender Surrender Surrender Surrender Surrender Here I sit in this waiting room I know it by heart Writing my songs of gloom As I did from the start I described every fact And it didn’t show me how to act I should walk to the stars Hand over my heart to yours Just because I should be naked untouchable Tender and tough Surrender Surrender Surrender Surrender Surrender Surrender Surrender Surrender Surrender

AWAY FROM HURT I noticed it in time this time I slid it back under the door I locked my unlocked heart away Away from hurt I saw you coming closer to the fire I saw the silhouette on your jaw I saw the claws that made me hurry away Away from hurt Like a yo-yo you kept on dangling in my way Now it’s time to bring the hangman in For it’s Judgement Day I found myself saying good morning to myself I looked under the carpet Double-checked every drawer and little shelf To be safe from hurt Away from hurt I noticed it in time this time

Healthy Man 03:18
Healthy Man And there she came to me In a flash of serenity Her braces twinkling Her feet above the sea Her hair so brilliantly Shining down on me All dressed up in innocence Her smile so willingly Truer than a movie star She’s pointing right at me An arrow at my heart Is she my reward? And I became a healthy man Since that day, since then I’ll never see the sea recede As long as she As long as she She looked like a miracle A long forgotten dream A wish that had turned old A page remained unseen A song that I had sold Long ago Yes she really came to me She jumped up from the backseat And threw away the mirror And got down on her knees Begging me begging me begging me Begging me please To be hers And I became a healthy man Since that day, since then I’ll never see the sea recede As long as she And I became a healthy man Since that day, since then I’ll never see the sea recede As long as she And I became a healthy man Since that day, since then I’ll never see the sea recede As long as she As long as she

Subliminal 03:55
SUBLIMINAL It’s so subliminal my love It makes me keep on thinking It makes me keep on singing It’s so impossible to care When my mind keeps me From breathing solid air I need it now I need winds to keep my arms From holding too tight I need wings to release me From all what might It’s so subliminal my love It keeps me from believing It keeps me from receiving Give me oblivion to go on My body needs some leaving Solid ground I don’t need that now I need a lot of light engineers to do the final take-off I need experts in water To wake up To wake up my love Do you want some Of my heart? Do you need some? It will be singing Wanna taste some Of my heart? Please taste some Come on and taste some Singing Singing Give me oblivion to go on My body needs some leaving Solid ground I don’t need that now
