The Siren & The Sage

Trouble

I keep the secret                     

To myself                         

Just like you 

                    

And I sense the shadows         

Fall from grace                     

As I touch you                    

 

Just to have this feeling    

Falling once again                

Tripping out on your love        

Trip it as you come and go        

 

And we will be in trouble        

Out on a storm-tossed sea            

We will lose ourselves                

As we hold onto each other                    

 

And now the sound of the world    

Is coming through                

To remind me

 

No, I can't stay for long

But I can't be without you

 

Strung out on this feeling    

Falling once again

Do we really need to know    

How this will end                            

 

'Cause we will be in trouble

Out on a storm-tossed sea

We will lose ourselves

As we hold onto eachother

 

Yes, we will be

Yes, we will be    

Out on a storm-tossed sea

Monterosso

Your voice calls me back                    

Colour of morning                        

Open window

Scattered light

 

My thoughts are yet surreal

Still holding onto dreams

When one world meets the other            

There is a moment without memory            

 

I can hear the song rising

and I know this song

I can hear the voices blending                

perfectly together                        

 

Outside is a blue day 

From the sea to the sky

Outside is a new day barely just begun

With no memory  

 

I can hear the song rising

And I know this song

I can hear the voices blending

Perfectly together

 

Come sing to me

Close to me

Come sing with me

And stay with me...

 

I can hear the song rising

And I know this song

I can hear the voices blending

Perfectly together

 

Still holding onto dreams 

Still holding onto dreams

The Siren & The Sage

Joy

Will I ever learn              

How not to fear            

What has to be              

Can it be                

 

Will I ever dare 

With no despair

To recognize

A joy so pure

 

See everything            

See it all come true

Come to you

Feel everything

Feel it all come true

Come to you

Easily

 

You say to me

Every day is new

The chances few 

Don't forget

 

Don't ask me why

I hesitate...

When morning comes 

The truth is clear

 

See everything            

See it all come true

Come to you

Feel everything

Feel it all come true

Come to you

Easily

        

Will I ever learn

A joy so pure 

Joy, so pure

The Siren & The Sage

Scarlet

What we never had

We never lost

What we never gave

We never got

 

Never sure what we really wanted

Needed or hoped for

 

Nevermore I say

 

If you can't love beyond yesterday

If you can't let it live still today

If you lose and I leave

Will you see

There is no way back this time

 

The colours are strong this time of year

Scarlet desire

It cuts through my heart

 

Oh, so true

It's all around me

All that I long for

 

Nevermore I say

 

If you can't love beyond yesterday

If you can't let it live still today

If you lose and I leave

Will you see

There is no way back this time

The Siren & The Sage

Heaven

The sound of you

The breath of you 

Keeps coming

Keeps me warm

Keep coming back to me, back to me

        

I cross the line 

I walk on through

Keep seeing

This otherness

how it could have been, should have been

 

Eyes towards heaven

Blue as your eyes

No clouds to shadow

A brighter day

 

Are we the angels

High above

We take the hurt

Bless those little hands, little hands

 

Eyes towards heaven

Blue as your eyes

No clouds to shadow

A brighter day

 

Someone is calling

Will she be heard

You have to keep calling for someone to find you

 

And I'm still calling

Calling for thee

You have to keep calling for someone to find you

 

The sound of you

The breath of you 

Keeps coming

The sound of you

Keeps coming

Keep coming, keep coming

The Siren & The Sage

Southern Sky

This is happiness

It's here to last 

October leaves are having to let go    

I catch them as they fall    

And let them slip away

As I look towards the southern skies

Get lost in the trick of the light

This season won´t let go

 

And I know I will still have you 

Yes, I know I will still have you

Here forever now

I really want to love

 

This is happiness

The here and now

Without the fear of having to let go

This is how it feels

 

And I know I will still have you 

Yes, I know I will still have you

Here forever now

I really want to love

 

Like a satellite at night

An imaginary star

Like a signal in the sky

I follow where you are

If I close my eyes to see

Where you are going to

Gaze up to you my love

Wherever you will be

 

'Cause I know I will still have you 

Yes, I know I will still have you

Here forever now

I really want to 

Love

Morning '71

The sound of you

The breath of you 

Keeps coming

Keeps me warm

Keep coming back to me, back to me

        

I cross the line 

I walk on through

Keep seeing

This otherness

how it could have been, should have been

 

Eyes towards heaven

Blue as your eyes

No clouds to shadow

A brighter day

 

Are we the angels

High above

We take the hurt

Bless those little hands, little hands

 

Eyes towards heaven

Blue as your eyes

No clouds to shadow

A brighter day

 

Someone is calling

Will she be heard

You have to keep calling for someone to find you

 

And I'm still calling

Calling for thee

You have to keep calling for someone to find you

 

The sound of you

The breath of you 

Keeps coming

The sound of you

Keeps coming

Keep coming, keep coming

The Siren & The Sage

Listen

There's a feeling

I know it well

There's a feeling

I can tell

When it comes 

I'll be long gone

 

Let the light down low

Hear my prayer

Let the darkness in

Disappear

When the night comes closing in

 

All fading now

In haze

You are standing there

And I want to reach out

To be by your side 

Hold on for me

 

Silently

I say your name

Silently

I stay the same

If I lose again and again

 

All fading now 

In haze 

You are standing there

And I want to reach out

To feel what it´s like

Hold on for me

I Think I Love You

I have a secret                                   

A picture of you               

You are in my mind

Caught in the crossfire     

A cold winter's night 

I was there

                             

Looking at you                                    

Trying so hard to understand      

Anything,                        

What's happening               

Searching for you            

In a broken dream           

Trying to understand                  

You're not here anymore

 

And I think I love you                 

yes I think I do

Don't let it be true

Don't let it be true

 

No one can comfort me                  

Nobody knows                                   

What I really feel                                     

How can I tell you

The things that I keep 

In my heart

 

Closing my eyes         

Trying so hard to understand

All the lies, 

I realise

The tears in my eyes

Guess I'm trying

To make you understand

I'm not here anymore

 

And I think I love you

Yes I think I do

Don't let it be true

Don't let it be true

                   

I know I know too much

I know I've seen too much

I can't pretend anymore

I know I love you so

and I can't let you go

I won't forget anymore

 

'Cause I think I love you

Yes I think I do

Yes I think I love you

Don't let it be true

Don't let it be true

Show More Love

Pale night, the light is dying                              

Breathing frost-like winter air

Times are changing, faith coming

Looking over fields of fading green

  

I loved you so, some time ago

Yes we were oh, so meant to be

You never told me, never said 

The only way to love was to let you go

 

Slowly you're fading, like the colours in the sky              

Cold careless evening, I'm trying to say goodbye                       

All this time I've waited, just to wonder why                   

You never had the guts to try                                        

 

Fly, fly black crow

Soaring in the sky

Leave me now, let me go

Time has come for me to find my home  

 

Slowly you're fading, like the colours in the sky              

Cold careless evening, I'm trying to say goodbye                       

All this time I've waited, just to wonder why                   

You never had the guts to try                                        

 

Show more love, the writing's on the wall

In your heart, you will fall again 

 

Slowly you're fading, like the colours in the sky        

Cold careless evening, I'm trying to say goodbye                       

All this time I've waited, just to wonder why                   

you never had the guts to try   

 

Show more love

Show more love

Show more love

Show more love

Alone To The Chill

Melting away
In moments gone by

In forbidden thoughts

Alone to the chill

Careful to touch
What breaks easily

Time turns a blind eye

To a second chance

 

Hang on
Hold on
Don't let go
Please don't say no
As you close your eyes

Hang on to the dream

 

A feeling of love
Of how it can be
It's taking your breath

Questioning you

And is this the one
The one for your heart

The light in the dark

You shoot to the stars

Hang on
Hold on
Don't let go
Please don't say no

As you close your eyes

Hang on

Close your eyes

Hang on

As you close your eyes

Hang on to the dream

Alone to the chill

Alone to the chill

Blue Sky Blue

There's nothing that I would rather do

Than run away with you    

To this paradise place

Far away  

                                 

There's nothing that I would rather feel

A life so pure, so real

Make a difference this time

Seize the day

When I look to the blue sky, blue

I want to be with you, just you

Promises, promises

Make believe

We want it to be

It's only one word away

I'll do anything to make you stay

Promises, promises 

I believe

It´s just you and me

                                                                                                                         

I don't want to remain like this                                         

Now that I know what I miss                                            

and I've made up my mind                                                      

what do you say  

                                                                

Just look to the blue sky, blue                                          

I want to be with you, just you                                         

Promises, promises                                                                                    

Make believe                                                                           

We want it to be                                                              

It's only one word away

I'll do anything to make you stay

Promises, promises 

I believe

In you and me   

                                                                      

And I'm longing to wake in the morning                                     

To the sound of the waves on the shoreline             

Free as can be                                                                         

It's a new chance for me                                                

And I´m leaving

I look to the blue sky, blue

I want to be with you, just you                                         

Promises, promises                                                                                    

Make believe                                                                           

We want it to be

Look to the blue sky, blue

I want to be with you, just you    

Promises, promises 

I believe

It's just you and me

The False Alarm

If I could only sleep this all away                                   

Tidy up all the mess that I've made                    

If it was all a false alarm                                   

No sweat beads in my palm                              

 

If I could run a million miles from here               

Leave long before you feel the damage done      

If it was just a false alarm                                             

'cause I don't mean to do no harm                                 

 

So many ways to begin                                     

So many ways to end                                       

It's a heartbreaking record spinning round        

Listen to the sound                                                        

Play it once again                                                                                

 

If we could wake up side by side, slowly            

Look to the soft horizon, if only                           

It was just a false alarm                                    

Nothing to break the morning calm                    

 

So many ways to begin                                     

So many ways to end                                       

It's a heartbreaking record spinning round        

I listen to the sound                                                      

Play it once again                                                                                

 

The way out of here, is the perfect escape                      

You let my hand go, as I close the door             

The way out of here, it is perfectly clear

 

Here we go again

Dawn Chorus

You know your time is coming 

You see it in the skyline

Something inside is aching

You don't know what is making you 

Doubt all the songs you're singing

Doubt all the melodies that 

Come to mind as you look 

Out in the quietness

For you

Only you

 

In each and every morning  you

Look in the mirror just to 

Remember who you are and

Why you keep on keeping on

You feel the spring is coming

You know the colours will 

Return to you

 

And I walk on fearless

And I hold on to the promise

As long as you hold on to me

 

Outside the songbirds singing

The dawning of a new day

I hear the children's laughter

The city sounds awake me

And it's all falling into place

I tell myself I have to face

The world outside my window

The world that's coming close to me

 

And I walk on fearless

And I hold on to the promise

As long as you hold on to me

And I walk on fearless

As long as you hold on to me

You know your time is coming 

You know your time is coming

Gardengreen

He calls me from the garden green                    

I hear him soft and near

Takes me to another world

Heaven far from here                                        

 

Calls me to his loneliness

No one else around

Silently I settle in

Listen for the sound

 

Higher, love is all around                                   

Higher, never to come down                             

I feel, heaven it can be

Something says your heart belongs to me                      

 

He calls me with his blood red love

A wilderness obscure

Everything will disappear

A gentle breeze so pure

 

Higher, love is all around

Higher, never to come down

I feel, heaven it can be

Something says your heart belongs to me

 

Fade into to the setting sun                

 

Higher, love is all around

Higher, never to come down

I feel, heaven it can be

Something says your heart belongs to me

Something says your heart belongs to me  

Something says your heart belongs to me

White Cloud

White cloud passing by

In the restless wind

Feel the newfound pleasure flow

And the black cloud letting go

Up above the world

Like a spirit moving free 

How the light breaks through

Leading me to pastures new

 

White cloud, set me free

Wild wind, fly with me

Will you follow me down every road I go

 

White cloud drifting by

From beyond a distant storm

Watching from the sycamore tree

So curious to see

 

White cloud, set me free

Wild wind, fly with me

Will you follow me down every road I go

 

White cloud, set me free

 

White cloud, set me free

Wild wind, fly with me                                                               

Will you follow me down every road I go

Seize My Heart

Seize my heart, seize my love

Seize my dream, seize my love

 

He is the future 

Coming to light

With a new dawn breaking 

It will be my making

He is the one 

I can't oppose

He looks at me across the room 

Across a world of time 

Standing still

 

Seize my heart, seize my love

Seize my dream, seize my love

 

Tender as morning 

Whispers to me 

With a smile to wake me

Never to forsake me

He takes me to a place of peace

Across a bridge I once 

Thought too far

 

Seize my heart, seize my love

Seize my dream, seize my love

Himmelblå

Det er ingenting jeg heller vil                     

Enn å velge en gang til                              

Finne drømmen igjen                                   

Et helt annet sted                                                       

 

Og følelsen vil ikke slippe tak                     

Det er vel en mening bak                           

En lengsel så stor                                        

La oss dra                                                                    

 

Jeg ser mot en himmel blå                         

Du vet hva jeg venter på                             

Lover du, lover jeg                                                                      

Tro på deg                                                                   

Så drar vi avsted                                                        

Det føles litt rart å si                                    

Jeg vil bare du skal bli                                 

Lover du, lover jeg                                                                       

Tro på meg                                                                  

Jeg vil ha deg med                                       

 

                                           

Det finnes et annet liv et sted                    

Hvis bare du blir med                                  

Vi kan reise vår vei                                      

Du og jeg                                                                     

 

Bare se mot en himmel blå                                      

Du vet hva jeg ønsker nå                           

Lover du, lover jeg                                                                                                        Tro på deg                                                                   

Så drar vi avsted                                                        

Kanskje føles det rart å si                           

Jeg vil bare du skal bli                                 

Lover du, lover jeg                                                                      

Tro på meg                                                                  

Jeg vil ha deg med                                       

 

Jeg ønsker å våkne en morgen   

Høre lyden av åpent og stille hav

Tenk å være helt fri                        

Å tørre å si 

Se nå drar jeg                                            

                                                                                         

Jeg ser mot en himmel blå                         

Du vet hva jeg venter på                             

Lover du, lover jeg                                                                       

Tro på deg                                                                   

Så drar vi avsted                                                        

Se mot en himmel blå                                 

Du vet hva jeg ønsker nå                           

Lover du, lover jeg

Tror på meg                                                                                                                   Jeg vil ha deg med

Back To Where It Started

Back to where it started

Everything complete

The view outside the window

Where they used to meet

 

She was a mystery

Her cheeks so rosy

He thought that he could be

The one and only

 

Back to where it started

Everything so sweet

The flowers in the garden

The kiss and the heartbeat

 

She was a mystery

Her cheeks so rosy

He thought that he could be

The one and only

 

Back to where it started

Everything complete

Back to where it started

Where they used to meet 

Where they used to meet

Where they used to meet

One Day

One day we will look back                                                                       

Look back to feel today

Strolling along hand in hand

Mysterious you say

 

'Cause you don't know                                                      

And I don't know

We don't know where we're meant to go

 

Until the morning comes                                                  

Milder at daybreak                                                           

And the sunbeams force their way                                  

Through the heartache                                                     

Why, why do we close our eyes                                                   

                                                                       

Let's just be together                                                                                

Here and now

Day by day together

To try to make love grow

 

’Cause you don't know                              

And I don't know

We don't know where we're meant to go 

 

Until the morning comes                                                  

Milder at daybreak                                                           

And the sunbeams force their way                                  

Through the heartache                                                     

Why, why

Oh, why do we close our eyes  

Why, why do we close our eyes

Two Of A Kind

In the night                                      

When I come home                         

The lights are low                           

And I’m alone                                  

 

And when I look                              

Towards your house                                  

I know you’re there                                   

You’re on your own                                   

 

Just like me                                      

Just like me                          

Just like me  

We’re two of a kind            

 

And I forget how close you are                                        

And still it feels so far 

I know, I know, I know                                         

When the sun sets quietly

Whisper back to me

I know, I know, I know

 

Every day                                         

It’s just the same

The desolate dawn

The sun sets late

 

And it’s been years

Since I last thought 

Maybe I could have 

Someone like you

 

Just like you

Just like you

Just like you

We’re two of a kind 

 

And I forget how close you are                                        

And still it feels so far 

I know, I know, I know                                         

When the sun sets quietly

Whisper back to me

I know, I know, I know

                                   

Just like me                                      

Just like me                          

Just like me

We’re two of a kind 

Oh, two of a kind

We're two of a kind

Scars

Now the weather’s changing 

It’s colder than before

Now the sands are shifting

Right outside our door

 

My heart beats faster

The rain tastes bitter

And I don’t feel the same

 

Daydreaming

Distracted from the shades

Daydreaming 

The world fades 

 

The eyes of a stranger

Heals my aching skin

The touch of another

Where do we begin

 

My heart beats faster

The rain tastes bitter

And I don’t feel the same

 

Daydreaming

Distracted from the shades

Daydreaming 

The world fades

Daydreaming

If I should fall from grace 

Daydreaming 

The world fades

 

Now the weather’s changing  

Now the sands are shifting

And I'm daydreaming

Now the weather's changing

Now the sands are shifting

Memory Lane

Could have been

Should have been

Or would have been

If only with you

 

Possibly

Probably

Just maybe

It’s all in the blue

 

In the hazy horizon

The high hopes 

That we cling to

 

And the paths 

We cross

I get lost

In illusions of you

 

And it’s love, hearts and kisses

Hello and goodbyes

Could love like this be denied

 

And here we go

The yes and no

The yes and no

The sweet contradictions

 

And how we fade

Into the night

Afraid to separate

Facts from the fiction

 

Could have been

Should have been

Or would have been

A secret seduction

 

It’s love, hearts and kisses

Hello and goodbyes

Could love like this be denied

And it’s love, hearts and kisses

Hello and goodbyes

Winter Song.jpg

Winter Song

Winter settles all around 

Your lips are cold and so are mine

How the world is frozen

In a breath of innocence 

 

All my dreams are out of focus

And the song, it flies away 

It belongs to you

Oh, please let me hear it too

 

If I could be in the song with you

Sing the words of love like you do

Float on the song the way you do

 

Searching for the words that hide 

Behind doors, in all our secrets

For a simple answer

In your mysterious mind 

 

If I could be in the song with you

Sing the words of love like you do

Float on the song the way that you do

 

If I could be in the song with you

Sing the words of love like you do

Float on the song the way you

Sing the words of love like you

Float on the song the way you do

Away Away

Footprints move

Across my path

Unexpectedly

You breathe warm

And touch my heart

Leave your traces inside

 

It’s all for a moment

A sweet little time 

On our wings

Across the sky

Away, away

To foreign grounds 

A sweet little while 

To float on high

 

All so faint

And far from me

Comes alive

Within reach

In a silent breath of faith

From your mouth to mine

 

It’s all for a moment

A sweet little time 

On our wings

Across the sky

Away, away

To foreign grounds

A sweet little while 

To float on high

 

And I’m calling out for more

When you’re gone, gone, gone

And I’m waiting by the door 

´Till you come, come, come

 

Away, away

To foreign grounds

A sweet little while 

To float on high

And It's The Loneliness

It’s early morning

The promise I made

A new beginning 

Don’t let it fade

The feeling today

Forgotten is another yesterday

 

It’s never easy

Never enough

The roads are many

Some of them rough

Don’t let me down

Forgotten is another yesterday

 

And it’s the loneliness I fear

Can only bring back the tears

How the waves are rushing in

 

Oh, can’t you see 

It’s all in the skyline           

Every day, the ray of the sunshine

To keep our love alive

Oh, can’t you see

City lights are blinding

Through the night, serenading

To keep our love alive

Oh, how we tried

 

Late in the day

People race by

I’m standing still

I ask myself why

Here is the now

Forgotten is another yesterday

                                               

And it’s the loneliness I fear

Can only bring back the tears

How the waves are rushing in

 

Oh, can’t you see

It’s all in the skyline           

Every day, the ray of the sunshine

To keep our love alive

Oh, can’t you see

City lights are blinding

Through the night, serenading

To keep our love alive

 

Alive

Alive

Alive

Alive

The Wanderers

Gloria in excelsis Deo
et in terra pax homiibus bonae voluntatis

Laudamus te, benedícimus te

cum Sancto Spíritu: in gloria Dei Patris

All the stars out in the night

Shimmer silver, solemn light

Dancing on the wavy sea

Holding secrets endlessly

 

All the pavements left lonely

Alleyways worn out, weary

Leading wanderers day by day

On their ceaseless way

 

The world is sound asleep it seems

Wrapped in darkness, quiet dreams

Even the trees on the highest hill

Stand so proud and perfectly still

 

Each and every year goes by

All so precious, but how they fly

Drip away like melting ice

Slip away with fast goodbyes

 

The world is sound asleep it seems

Wrapped in darkness, quiet dreams

Even the trees on the highest hill

Stand so proud and perfectly still

Arm's Length.jpg

You Keep Me At Arm's Length

You keep me at arm’s length

Out in the uncertain

I’m slowly losing my strength

And what do I know, we’re closing the curtains

 

You never let me love you 

The way I think I should

And I no longer stay true 

‘Cause you leave me thinking, wondering if I could

 

Something forgotten a long time ago

I can´t remember who I am

 

I’m looking for someone

To lighten my darkened heart

Constantly on the run

Shortcuts and backstreets, and back to the start

 

You never let me love you 

The way I think I should

And I no longer stay true 

‘Cause you leave me thinking, wondering if I could

 

Something forgotten a long time ago

I can’t remember who I am

And I walk the streets in silence

Trying my best not to give a damn

 

You keep me at arm’s length

Out in the uncertain

You keep me at arm’s length

And here we are, closing the curtains

Here Comes The Train

Closer to my destination

Beginning or the end

I’m here at the station

Home is just around the bend

All I left will be mine again

This is what I have to do

 

Here comes the train

Take me away, let me be with you

 

Angel, come to me again

Your vision is a light shining

Angel, another chance, and then

Maybe I will see the silver lining

Once I was there for you

Now who have I come to be

 

Here comes the train

Take me away, let me be with you

 

Another journey

Again I lost control

Please have mercy

Forgive my lonely soul

There’s not much I can undo

Angel, I walk in dreams with you

 

Closer to my destination

Beginning or the end

I’m here at the station

Home is just around the bend

 

Here comes the train

Take me away, let me be with you

Into The Shadows

If I could tell you 

How I feel

Find the words to persuade you 

To come near

 

I’m a whisper in your ear

If I sit closer

Lean on your shoulder

Close enough to hear you breathe

 

By your side

Into the shadows

Far and wide

Into the shadow

 

If you could see me

Who I am 

The one you know who’s always there

Behind the masquerade

 

The devil inside

I’m destined to be

The one in darkness

 

By your side

Into the shadows

Far and wide

Into the shadow 

 

Whisper, whisper, whisper

I am here

Whisper, whisper, whisper

I am here

 

By your side

Into the shadows

Far and wide

Into the shadow

Oh Hard Times.jpg

Oh Hard Times

I wish I was unbreakable

That every wound would heal

How strong it would make me feel

 

I wish every path would always light up

And that night would turn to day

And I’d be the one to lead the way

 

Once we had everything

Blissfully wide-eyed

Oh, hard times

Don’t leave us in the dark

 

I wish I could stand upright through the storm

Give whatever it would take

Never make another mistake

 

And I know it’s too much to ask for

And I can only hope and pray

That you will be the one to lead the way

 

Once we had everything

Blissfully wide-eyed

Oh, hard times

Don’t leave us in the dark

Sheltering Sky

I look up towards the endless blue

The sheltering sky

I just need to be with you

 

The day has just begun

The sun’s on fire

And we’re still on the run, and we’re on fire

 

Burn, burn, burn, burn, burning bright

Turn, turn, turn, turning to the light

Learn, learn, learning how to love

 

And I fly like a feather in the clouds

Silent wonderland

Far from the faces in the crowds

 

The day has just begun

The sun’s on fire

Forever on the run, and we’re on fire

 

Burn, burn, burn, burn, burning bright

Turn, turn, turn, turning to the light

Learn, learn, learning how to love

Burn, burn, burn, burn, burning bright

Turn, turn, turn, turning to the light

Learn, learn, learning how to love

One Step

One step 

After the other

Keep us together 

Walk through the dark

Daylight 

It’s there in the distance

Merciful shining

See me through this night

 

Through the wilderness

You walk with me

And no tomorrow

Will set me free 

 

Move on

Nothing’s unspoken

Prayers are unbroken  

Between you and me

 

Praising

A new beginning

There’s no escape

And we’re on our way

 

Through the wilderness

You walk with me

Maybe tomorrow

Will set me free

My Dream Will Never End.jpg

My Dream Will Never End

It’s that time of year

My thoughts are drifting off again

To him, I send my love

To the horizon

 

Time is passing by so quickly 

Traces fading fast 

The wind is a wintry sigh  

The world is frozen

 

My dream will never end

Roam across the forest

Fading into white

Tell me, please be honest

Where would you rather be

Than here with me

 

Frozen in the moment

He keeps coming back to mind

And searching for atonement

It’s not over, not over

 

Knowing I will find him

Fate will take me there 

Hold on

Hold on a little longer

 

My dream will never end

Roam across the forest

Fading into white

Tell me, please be honest

Where would you rather be

Than here with me

 

My dream will never end

Roam across the forest

Fading into white

Tell me, please be honest

 

My dream will never end

My dream will never end

My dream will never end

My dream will never end

Travelling.jpg

Travelling

In the grey misty morning

In the pale morning light

In the mirror I stare

Into those tired eyes

 

And the lonely lamp post outside

Shines it’s sombre, yellow light

In the dusky, rainy morning

I will be leaving

 

Some day, somewhere

I will go travelling

Some day, some day, some day

 

Feels like I’m made of clay

Shaped and modelled day by day

I could loose myself

In shapeless grey

 

Some day, somewhere

I will go travelling

Some day, some day, some day

Answer Me Now

Answer me now

Don’t hesitate

Answer me now

Don’t wait

Answer me now

Before it’s too late

 

I’m out of tune

And you’ve broken down

We don’t speak

And we both want to leave this town

You’re leaving it late

Don’t leave me to drown

 

Too late to go back

To how it used to be

It’s gone too far

And we are drifting off at sea

 

My glass is empty 

Yours is half full

Our love was plenty

Now it feels cruel

You’re leaving me here

Maybe I’m a fool

 

Too late to go back

To how it used to be

It’s gone too far

And we are drifting off at sea

 

Tomorrow comes with promises

Every day again

There’s no such thing as common sense 

Until love comes back again

 

We’re drifting off at sea

Drifting aimlessly

It’s gone too far, lost track of who we are

Has it really, really, gone too far

Once Upon A Time

Once upon a time

When we were lovers 

Drifting through the days

We found eachother

Once upon a time 

Love lifting clouds away 

 

Don’t talk no more, give in to this

Don’t lose this chance, you’ll only miss

 

With all the time in the world

You think the moments last

With all the time in the world 

Just loving you 

With all the love in the world

You think that life will last forever

And ever, and ever

 

Do you remember the time 

when we were falling

Our heads held up high 

No one to hear the calling

Remember the time 

You know the reason why

 

Don’t talk no more, give in to this

Don’t lose this chance, you’ll only miss

 

With all the time in the world

You think the moments last 

With all the time in the world

Just loving You

With all the love in the world

You think that life will last forever

And ever, and ever

Breathing In Breathing Out.jpg

Breathing In Breathing Out

Don’t wait for me

I won’t be there

This restlessness 

It’s like the wind

 

Calling out, reaching out for love

Make it last longer 

When it’s gone

Don’t follow

 

Breathing in, breathing out 

Let go

Moving in, moving out 

Give into temptation

Holding on, holding out

I need you so

When the night’s falling

Don’t follow

 

Time after time

I will return 

For your embrace

Your warm shelter

 

Breaking out, reaching out for love

Make me feel stronger

And when it’s gone 

Move on

 

Breathing in, breathing out 

Let go

Moving in, moving out 

Give into temptation

Holding on, holding out

I need you so

When the night’s falling

Don’t follow

Freeze The Moment

Freeze the moment

Treasure the feeling

Close my eyes and trust in you

 

Show me the way                          

To peaceful wilderness

The river running wild and free

 

The trees are breathing 

The fields are alive 

A gentle breeze is taking me

 

I know somewhere 

Away from here

Oh, so lonely 

To disappear  

In silence 

You wipe away the tears 

 

Freeze the moment

Treasure the feeling

Show me the way

To peaceful wilderness

We Dance Alone

High rise, sunrise

The view looks good from here

Streetlight, starlight

The air I breathe so clear

 

Never, ever 

Exit state of mind

The sunrise in your eyes

Memories rewind

 

Oh, we dance alone

Away from here

Nothing to fear

We disappear

Oh, we dance alone

 

High rise, sunrise

No future and no past

Treasure, the pleasure

Make the moment last

 

Forever, together

The soft exploding now

The magic, the music

The love you dare allow

 

Oh, we dance alone

Dreamers

What if something 

Gets in the way

Steals your longing 

And what if time runs out

 

Will you still be a dreamer 

Still be that believer 

Will you still be a dreamer

Just give it one more chance 

 

Standing face to face 

With your destiny 

When every moment counts

More than ever before

 

Will you still be a dreamer

Still be that believer

Will you still be a dreamer

Just give it one more chance

 

How they glitter in the dark

I catch the falling stars

How they shine out in the dark

I reach out for the stars

 

Will you still be a dreamer

Forever a believer

Will you still be a dreamer

Just give it one more chance

 

Will you still be a dreamer

Will you still be a dreamer

Just give it one last chance

Happiness

Bring me back

To wonder

Drifting through the days

I’m on the edge

Without you

Bring me back to mystery

 

Happiness 

You bring me back to

Happiness

You take me back to

Longer days, stronger days

You give me back my 

Happiness again                                                                   

 

Bring me back             

The sweetness

Bless the night and day            

Life with you 

Untainted

Sorrow seems to fade away into

 

Happiness 

You bring me back to

Happiness

You take me back to

Longer days, stronger days

You give me back my

Runaway Turnaround

It’s the only way out, run away

Leave the trouble behind, and turn away

Can you hear me when I shout, stay away

The only way to break out, just a blink away

 

Thunder 

Black clouds from yesterday

Breakdown

No getaway

Thunder

It’s way too dark to see

Forgiveness

All I want is to be free

Break away, start again

Runaway, turnaround

 

It’s the hurting inside, when it comes again

Don’t know what I’ll find, I fall again

Can we try to work it out, all over again?

See the day break out in light, once again

 

Thunder 

Black clouds from yesterday

Break down

No getaway

Thunder

Oh, way too dark to see

Forgiveness

All I want is to be free

Break away, start again 

Runaway, turnaround

Do You Remember

From another life

Twisted reality

In the mirror I see 

The two of us together 

Where are we now

In all the stories

Woven into my memory

Like a black and white film

 

Oh, and I remember

How good it was

 

In another life

Come on and lose yourself

Pick up the flame 

Find the spark inside again

Just like a dream

Twisted reality

Away from this world

Just you and me together

 

Oh, and I remember

How good it was

Do you remember

In another life

 

Flickering memory

I lost myself in it

Do you remember

The sweet surrender

 

Oh, and I remember 

How good it was

Do you remember

In another life

Stargazing

Only you 
Know how it came to be
Under the deep dark sky
Stargazing

Somehow a chance
To find the way 

 

Somewhere in time

Is this coincidence

Imagine if we had 

Never met alone

Somehow a different destiny

Unknown

 

Hold on to love

The heart beats on

Hold on to love

The pulse of life goes on and on and on and on

 

Only I 
Know how you make me feel
Under your spell I find 
Sensation
Somehow desire takes me
Away

 

Hold on to love

The heart beats on

Hold on to love

The pulse of life goes on and on and on and on

Turn To The Light

The light shines in 

Through coloured glass                                  

Into my heart                           

 

I feel the warmth within

Like a soft caress

Never break us apart

 

You know how it feels                          

When everything seems lost

Nothing left to hold on to

When the lines are crossed                              

 

Turn to the light

Take flight

Reach out 

You promise me                                  

And I will still believe                                       

We’re gonna make it through this night

 

Come golden dawn, begin

Bring me promises

To break the silent hurt

 

You know how it feels

Like there’s no way out

A maze of indecision

Where all you feel is doubt

 

Turn to the light

Take flight

Reach out 

You promise me                                  

That you still believe                                       

We’re gonna make it through this night
