Track Name: Girona
Girona

6 stories tall
block out the sun
Girona

sideways skylights
this place is speakin
in a twisted tongue
doing kartweels
i'm out there

these cobbeled stones
and cupper coins
keep bending my ear
and vivivibrating my

sparrow coo
i love you

12 hundred years
walked on this path
Girona

bright lemon treat
meet salty sweet
on a table for two
in passing i'm out there

some sleepy stream
will cary me
a leaf on my back
i'm vivivibrating

sparrow coo
i love you
Track Name: Cut Out The Dying Stuff
Cut Out The Dying Stuff

whether it lasts just through today and a part of tomorrow
or whether it last for a long life don't you ever kid
yourself about loving someone
there will allways be people who say love does not
exist cos they don't have love

i tell you its true

cut out the dying stuff
its not the way we talk
its not the way we talk
cut out the dying stuff
its not the way we talk
you don't know how lucky you are

dedde er da igge mange da ken forsto men du ken
but hold me as close as you can
and thing about nothing
can you not feel my heart is your heart
i am you and you are me

i tell you its true

cut out the dying stuff
its not the way we talk
its not the way we talk
cut out the dying stuff
its not the way we talk
you don't know how lucky you are
Track Name: Left Room
Left Room

underneath my pillow
i was looking for my teeth
when the nighth was nearly over
i stranded on my feet

i jumped out of the window
hid the things i took
i ran away from this grazy scene
tried to keep the thought you shook

in the morning - i was laughing
cos the blackbird - kept on talking
and she said - you'll never be the same

in the morning - i wasstumbling
in the left room - you were hiding
and she said - you'll never be the same
you'll never be the same

i came in from the wilderness
you read about in books
don't know if i was dreaming
don't know how long it took

i reached the destination
followed the tracks from home
i really needed someone
and i needed to be alone

in the morning - i was laughing
cos the blackbird - kept on talking
and she said - you'll never be the same

in the morning - i wasstumbling
in the left room - you were hiding
and she said - you'll never be the same
you'll never be the same

whatever i do
i'll be thinking about me and you
i'll be thinking about me and you
i do
Track Name: Analyse
Analyse

ich wäre gern wie alle
anderen statt anders sein
irgendeinmal in der mitte
drin mit stehn
statt draussen sein

dann und wann
zieh ich mir an
die sachen wie
sie allen stehn
tagelang ueb ich da drin
die schritte wie
die anderen gehen

ich wäre gern so ganz ganz anders
als alle statt ganz gleich zu sein
irgendeinmal sehr weit draussen
schwebend frei statt drin allein

drin allein

manchmal seh ich ihre lippen
woerter sprechen zu verstehn
seh dann sogar in ihre augen
blick im kreis wohl nicht verstehn

ich wäre gern so ganz ganz anders
als alle statt ganz gleich zu sein
irgendeinmal sehr weit draussen
schwebend frei statt drin allein

drin allein
Track Name: 天黑黑 (Ti O O)
天黑黑 (Ti O O)

how I wish it were true
don't bring trouble to you

how i wish you where here
i'm longing for you

Track Name: Green - feat. Nanna Schannong
Green

i wish i was a color
i could be yellow
and when it was a rainy day
i could shine right through

i wish i was a color
i could be blue
and when it was too hot outside
i could cool you

do you think we could be green together
do you think we could be green together

all the time
Track Name: Alive
Pale Like Snow

you throw me in the deepest depths
you shoot me on the highest heights
you are my love
you are my love
and i walk out like a lonely rainbow
i caught your thoughts a while
i miss you oh how much i miss you
i guess it makes you smile
good for you my love
my face is pale like the snow
pale colours sprinkled

lines tender as silk
your mouth written in the haze
cold sneaks up my legs
don't know a thing
i'm falling
air is different now
i can't get my breath
where is the wall which saved me
i long to love you

alive

a water sprinkled window
i try to catch you in the drops
i could see you in everything
you are my love
ice floe on the Elbe
landscape is moving
you're still there
are you there?

lines tender as silk
your mouth written in the haze
cold sneaks up my legs
don't know a thing
i'm falling
air is different now
i can't get my breath
where is the wall which saved me
i long to love you

colors fade away
colors fade away

alive
Track Name: Painting A Line
Painting A Line

fading music
fare thee well
name i dreamed of you
take me with you brother blue
brother your name is movement
stones are hanging on our shoulders
blue what are you gonna do?

that sins, which cause the blood to freeze
which cause the wind and breeze
i take care of our treasuries

you're one of a kind
you're so hard find
i'm painting a line
i let the melody shine

fading music
fare thee well
name i dreamed of you
take me with you sister blue
sister your name is moment

maybe - maybe i start to write
poems and spotlights
they tell me to breathe easy for a while

you're one of a kind
you're so hard find
i'm painting a line
i let the melody shine
Track Name: If This Is The End
Come on Brother!
believe that it's real
we got a long way to go!
like flowers on the moon
like a rising sun
like rain drops jumping

wind turns into a storm

good to be alive
even if it hurts
good to be alive
do you believe me

i don't need no fear, my love
why are you scare me
if this is the end
i will stay alive

and i thought i was happy
i thought i was happy
i thought i could live alone
and i thought i could fly
i thought i could fly
then i found myself falling

wind turns to a storm

good to be alive
even if it hurts
good to be alive
do you believe me

i don't need no fear, my love
why are you scare me
if this is the end
i will stay alive
Track Name: Live Forever
Live Forever

all that is in my hands
and all of the time i spend
i take my breath
take my time
serve my soul
lose my faith
lose my will
lose control

all what is in my mind
and all of the shells i find
play my drums
play my bass
paint my soul
lose my sails
lose my wind
lose control

i want to live forever
forever and now
i want to live forever
can't live now

time fades away
fades me away.
time fades away
fades us away.

all what is in my sight
and for all of the things i fight
i take my breath
take my time
serve my soul
lose my faith
lose my will

i want to live forever
forever and now
i want to live forever
can't live now
Track Name: Leave Me Alone
Leave Me Alone

leaves are fallin from the black birds branch
he said: this is my branch this is not your business
i want to share but i'm not able
you can have a seat on the electric cable

Leave Me Alone

do you imagine moments exist at all
every moment is gone forever
the future is our mind the past has passed
why does it make me sad

Leave Me Alone

whose time - is to stay
when all love - is flying away
leaves are falling winter will be soon
where are you - where - is my home

rain
for me
the tears i can't let fall
Track Name: Brooklyn Lullaby
Brooklyn Lullaby

it's so dark and nearly still
sounds so soft and personal
people so few and obvious
its 3 a.m. in brooklyn

the time has come to rest you hear
you had such a long day
tired feet and tired senses
its 3 a.m. in brooklyn

search hard for a star to wish
praise the love thank the sun
soon i will sing a lullaby of breath
its 3 a.m. in brooklyn

we're covered and we are close
so close your eyes for the night
soon i will sing a lullaby of breath
its 3 a.m. in brooklyn
