Track Name: My Wings
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
Track Name: The Dream Of Love
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
Track Name: Butterflies
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
Track Name: The Man I Used To Be
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
Track Name: When Evening Comes
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
Track Name: Sun In My Eyes
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.
Track Name: Red
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...
Track Name: Child Eyes
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
