No you don't wanna eat up and the gravy trains'a coming but you sit there sulking and you won't grow no you won't Grow into an athlete and run into your friends we'll follow borrowed trends and we'll grow together we'll grow together we'll grow together (Is there some for you?) You said you wouldn't let it affect you Not having food to eat off your plate for a while I said you couldn't stop but you showed me It's a blessing that sits around to remind me of you Telling telling more to friends and family alone they sit so happily oh they won't know no they don't know (Is there some for you?) You said you wouldn't let it affect you Not having food to eat off your plate for a while I said you couldn't stop but you showed me It's a blessing that sits around to remind me of you And although hope was on your side I wouldn't let it sink Tall Ships for me tonight It got quite hard for me to lie I'd tell you anything except for you were right If you're free then so am I tonight I'll let your sober thoughts decide if I should come To meet you right now (Is there some for you?) You said you wouldn't let it affect you Not having food to eat off your plate for a while I said you couldn't stop but you showed me It's a blessing that sits around to remind me of you Not having food to eat off your plate for a while (You said you wouldn't let it affect you) I said you couldn't stop but you showed me It's a blessing that sits around to remind me of you

Your skin reflects like crystals Giving light to everything shine through the trees in My dreams Your eyes are blue and bright, they Give light to everything in my reverie In my reverie My dreams are more than this, They’re composed of your voice And mine in harmony And in time I’ll find a reason To chase away the wolves that follow me And I confess That I dwell too much on small things And I’ll admit I watch far too closely And at the end of the road I’ll Let you know that

Lancée, envolée, métamorphosée Telle la lumière... dans la canopée Entends la nuit Saisis le jour Et les contours qui se révèlent tour à tour Goûte la vie Hume le vent Et ce printemps où tout fleurit... apparemment Douceurs et tracas en apesanteur Juste être là... rien que pour soi En fleurs ou en parures des jours meilleurs Les ritournelles... se réveillent Entends la nuit Saisis le jour Et les contours qui se révèlent tour à tour Goûte la vie Hume le vent Et ce printemps où tout fleurit... apparemment Touche la vie de tes dix doigts Regarde les rires emmitouflés, qui dansent autour de toi Si c'est dans l'ordre des saisons Pas de motif, pas de raison... de faire taire la chanson Entends la nuit Saisis le jour Et les contours qui se révèlent tour à tour Goûte la vie Hume le vent Et ce printemps où tout fleurit... apparemment

Imprisoned at my desk Homework to do Numers on my paper Fly away Answers are hidden I can't find them No matter how hard I try Eyes on the clock Time passes by Minecraft on my mind Dream about walk The village I've built Sheeps and cows The trees and the grass I take a swim

Affixed to unnatural kind of ways broken down by the shake shake shakes Blinded by all it take take takes “What do you mean I may not be excused?” All you see is a placemat and food I made my plate and my peace Don’t be rude Better to know what is meant No one has accused you of gross intent Where’s this been? Do you know? Could you guess? “Well it better than nothing, consider it blessed” A famine for feast, no, that can’t be correct. I’m afraid all we’ve argued just highlights the mess You know how to feel some type of way better than most, I sweat wetter than most, A stench thats better than fresh, any day Until I’m old and gray Grayer than most, I bet I bet, I’ll boast “Sharper than most”, every day Better to know what is meant No one has accused you of gross intent Where’s this been? Do you know? Could you guess? “Well it better than nothing, consider it blessed” A famine for feast, no, that can’t be correct. I’m afraid all we’ve argued just highlights the mess We can go a bit faster

Listen, godfather dead didn´t work today, there are different things to say, cause he got a change of heart, he got a change of heart Dear Sir or Madam, I have to admit that I don´t wanna work in this buissnes no more. This cancellation has several reasons, but mainly I do hate this anxious feelings people will get if they see me ariving I don´t wanna be anybody´s fool Scientists anoying him all the time they search till they find (versetzt einsingen) the fucking fountain of youth or the holy grail So I this is his cancellation he changed his black robe into sweat pants and lazing at home My days as godfather are getting much harder since antibiotics and reanimations are well known in human nature I´m sick of dead bodies and cries of dismay supplications and beggings, I need to escape and delay the judgement days I wanna, I wanna travel around the world, and do backing trips or spending a night in the open air. I wanna, I wanna do something else, like volunteer work or collecting donations for veterans I wanna, I wanna find a new job, like working with kids with social disorders in a nursery school. Tan my pale skin, style advice and some mental coaching for a restart start a diet and start a work out at gym to increase the attention of girls, find a friend, getting married, and be someone else than a person who spread out just fear and panic. So thank you for your understanding at all, if you find a successor give me a call, I´ll return for a adaption training

I woke up to find That the time of my body Has run faster than Time in my mind Rolled out of bed With swollen up eyes They're still tired of my dreams That fade every sunset Who will tell me That it's never too soon It is never too late The palms too weak To hold on to my prayers The feet too worn out To keep chasing this path Youthful ideals In a wreck of a man Blindly pushing all doors That are meant to be pulled Who will tell me That it's never too soon It is never too late Tomorrow is the day I keep telling myself Still I'm trying to cope Trying to find a way To open my eyes To hold on to my beliefs To pick my head up To walk until the end Who will tell me That it's never too soon It is never too late

The sleds put away, Winter is over The snow is gone, the sun is brighter (That’s what people were waiting for) Goodbye gore-tex, hello coton and leather The city just opened a new mall (That’s what people were waiting for) These major moves will solve minor problems They won’t stop them from appearing next Fall Today my neighbour took out the garden furniture His wife started to practice running ‘Cause flawed fitness, holiday time, lazy dieting Brought fatness as a hard bargainer

Everybody has has the words for telling their intentions Living on their hopes, yelling out their wisdom Hell, I ain't got no pride but I've got dreams And the things I feel, and the things I feel Everybody has a pain deep in their imagination Driving them mad, crying out they're burnt Hell, I ain't been no angel but I gave love That must be more than whatever you've given You'll hear it burst, damn, you'll feel you're strong You will fight the idea I ever came this close You got it all wrong, I got ill, you're strong You are right, I won't fight, I don't belong Those of you who have slept once upon my pillow Know there's much more than a simple passion In this life I live, this body I've given Much more, a lot more, than a simple passion

Never got high but maybe I should cause this is just one less step above the hell that we both know we've felt in the fingertips of those we told we loved. I've tried to say more words than your last guy, be the sentimental type, I speak too much, forfeit with lies. I've hid under this, I know more words than he did but superfluity is not needed, no not for this. I am low when I let you know more than I've felt or am feeling. Never got high but maybe I should cause this is just one less step above that hell we know we've felt in the fingertips of those we told we loved because I lied but didn't admit the lie after we touched.

I can see in the frost-light the dreams you could reach and the breaths as you sleep sound like angels to me. There's a weight that I carry since I first met you keep it under my ribcage safe out of view. It's the heart that you filled up with the song that you sing and the singing keeps building till I can't keep it in So I watch as you rest here and I promise to try not to keep you beside me, but to teach you to fly. And by stretching your wings out as hard as it seems you can lift up my heart and reach for your dreams.

So I see the sun rise again What visions you show me I need you my love and my friend Cos no one can know me The way that you do I love you My flower I love you Cos no one can know me The way that you do I love you I love you And as specks cast upon this great earth Nothing of great worth, However, I sensed you from birth Now the sun sets and I hold you close Of this time together forever, we must make the most And though it pains me to forsee the end My love and my friend I've known you through time Before I even met you I knew you were mine We'll ride this bright wave Past the state of decline I come to greet you but cannot stand I kneel before you, finally a man Lay your love upon me I come to save you but soon I find I'm the one who is saved And girl it's my own life I find I come to greet you but cannot stand I kneel before you, finally a man Lay your love upon me Cos no one can know me The way that you do I love you My flower I love you

If you knew all the answers, would you set them free Or the cure for all cancers, could you leave it be And the strangest of strangers, how would he feel Confronted with your knowledge, of what he conceals If you've seen when the end is coming to me Will you spare me the details? just leave it be Contemplating the damage, I could have done To family and loved ones, propitiously spun If you've seen when the end is coming to me Will you spare me the details? just leave it be

We finally reach the end of the path It’s been a long long road We stand against the wind and stare at the waves crashing below I feel tired but I’m glad we went through with hand in hand I turn so that I can face the threat of her beauty “We’ll have to dive if we want to go farther” She laughs but can’t see her gloomy eyes As I play stupid and refocus on the scenery While I’m smiling, I feel pushed in the back I don’t get it, I’m stunned and wide-eyed, as I begin to tip over Time freezes for a second, the rain falls I am looking for something to hold on but there’s nothing to cling onto Water is cotton-wool but this won’t break my fall Love is an oblivious sleep beneath the rain squall Love is all we have to cling on to The sun pierces the clouds, reveals a clear view to the ocean Peaceful on the ground I cast a glance over my shoulder I wish you Godspeed Perhaps I’ll see you from afar while you flee

(with briefcase) I ride the bus each day (and bowtie) With my season ticket pass (with bowler hat) And photographs of places I dislike (we'll be just fine) Diving into phoneboxes pretending to take important business calls Leave me a moment, I'm closing a deal right now
