Track Name: Endless Refrains
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)
Track Name: You Blew My Mind
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
Track Name: Escape Lane
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
Track Name: Going On
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
Track Name: Born in the Summer of Love
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
Track Name: Red Car
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?
Track Name: Grand and Humble
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
Track Name: Surrender
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
Track Name: Away from Hurt
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
Track Name: Healthy Man
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
Track Name: Subliminal
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
