My Wings 04:06
My Wings In your garden I was the one to be lost Running in circles, smelling your flowers How can I feel love?! How can I be loved?! When I’m running away from myself Running away from myself I’ll find my wings and I’ll give back my arms Yeah with my wings there will never be lies Fly with my wings on an ocean of madness Telling myself to hold on Now you tell me the spell has been broken When all I can do is follow your scent in the woods How can I feel love?! How can I be loved?! I’ll find my wings and I’ll give back my arms Yeah with my wings there will never be lies Fly with my wings on an ocean of madness Telling myself to hold on

The Dream Of Love Life is changing on me I can feel waves of joy and terror Washing the blood of my skin You weren’t there beside me when darkness fell Then the light inside me Showed me the way to the well I’m Shaking as I’m waking from the dream of love Friends say time is healing ‘Just don’t look back’ But for what I’m feeling Time is the blood on my tracks When I saw you walking I dressed in twisted smiles ‘Cause inside I’m battling And all of my senses are numb I’m changing as I’m breaking from the dream of love You know me, I’m not stone free when I lose my love

Butterflies 03:52
Butterflies Today I’ll give birth to a new song Today I’ll go running up the hill Today I’ll go chasing butterflies My life hasn’t really started until today Today I lost my home Today I’m on the road Today got nothing, Nothing to lose Today I’ll go chasing butterflies My life hasn’t really started until today But today is gonna end the string of pearls around your neck Will remind me that I’m not alone

The Man I Used To Be Now I’m back to singing songs of my solitude. In the morning I was standing alone in a green field. The sky was grey, I had to pray for my inner sun to shine. I got to get myself to realize the world is mine. Use the magnet, use the force, use whatever it takes. Just move on! you have the choice, There’s no life in regret. In the corn fields I wanna run ‘til I’m out of breath, Then lay down on the ground to catch myself. When you met me I was running from the man I used to be Changed my life into the perfect form...for me. Now I’m running, running from the man I used to be. So many voices inside a man’s head, will tell you what to do. one would say: “you have to stay!” Another says: “cruise!” I will I know which road to take when clouds are in the sky? Choose a path that has a heart and good you’ll come to find When you met me I was running from the man I used to be Changed my life into the perfect form...for me. Now I’m running, running from the man I used to be

When Evening Comes I could live my life I believe my lies I could pull this blanket over my head Every morning But when evening comes It’s hard Snakes are crawling on my bed The demon laughs in my head But in my dreams I fly with you Over mountains, over prairies when evening comes It’s hard Time is running out In my heart there’s a doubt But there’s no substitute for living my life To the fullest When evening comes I cry When evening comes I cry

Sun In My Eyes I, I’m lost in the maze of my soul. And I, I’m waiting for something to fall. I mustn’t keep judging the people surrounding Must look right inside me, That’s where the answers are born. I always been taught to do right But at times, things will go wrong, It’s alright. The shadow that’s grown is a lesson to learn, I feel so alone but I’m just overwhelmed by the storm. I see the sun in my eyes Feel the warmth that It’s spreading inside. I’ll never be satisfied Cannot rest ‘till the day that I die. I live in the city of dreams And I know there are so many places to see. I’m waiting the day, when the wind will bring change, And I’ll walk to the road without looking back At those brown streets. I see the sun in my eyes Feel the warmth that It’s spreading inside. I’ll never be satisfied Cannot rest ‘till the day that I die. For now, the raging sea will calm me down. Inside, I know that a battle has been won. But the quest still remains, ‘Cause with truth comes the pain and It’s sending me back to my life on the streets with the rain. I see the sun in my eyes Feel the warmth that It’s spreading inside. I’ll never be satisfied Cannot rest ‘till the day that I die.

Red 05:30
Red Red is my love the cities have flown Don’t think I ever been here before The sun disappears into the blue And I know: dark is the night that will follow Nobody knows the night like I do Nobody lives the night like I do Nobody dies like I do, at night One way street of sadness Dream of a figure standing on water I believe in the way of the river Beware of the shadows by the side of the road Dark side grows stronger, I’m about to explode! The power of creation has shown me the way To win back my heart from the demons Everyone’s dressed in white Gold is the yellow Sometimes red is the sun...

Child Eyes 04:18
Child Eyes I stare with child eyes Eyes wide shot Looking at the sunset Colored skies And beating heart I face life and they smile I need to know so much But a part of me stops At the gates of dawn I don’t always dare to speak my truth I’m burning in your sun I taste you with my tongue I’m wrapped around your crown Your memory keeps me warm I hug you I smell you I curse you I eat you up I grab you I love you I bite you Destroy you And then I destroy you again Don’t be afraid to emancipate your soul I’m just a child who can’t be reached watching the others play Too much to drink Too much to think I’ll be the clown on a bench Got no past... Only deep blue eyes
