Henry was this young guy 

Met this girl called Jane in the town

They fell in love in no time

Got engaged and built a new house 

 

They lived in a dreamworld

Where no bad things ever happened 

But the boy started to wonder

What it’s like out there so told her 

 

I have to see the world outside

The way the moon comes up and the sun goes down

Let me go, I have to see 

The way the leaves of trees go to brown from green 

 

I have to hear the ocean’s murmur

Lions’ roar, the way thunders crash

I have to be the one who discovers

A brand new corner of this universe 

 

Henry was a brave guy

Got his backpack left his hometown

Jane was sad but so proud

She supported him like no one 

 

She daily got his letters

Read his stories from his new world 

But each night tossed and tumbled 

She remembered these words 

 

I have to see the world outside

The way the moon comes up and the sun goes down

I have to go, I have to see

The way the leaves of trees go to brown from green 

 

I have to hear the ocean’s murmur

Lions’ roar, the way thunders crash

I have to be the one who discovers

A brand new corner of this universe 

 

Henry was this brave guy

Got his backpack left his hometown

Jane was sad but so proud

She supported him like no one 

She daily got his letters

Read his stories from his new world 

But each night tossed and tumbled 

In her dreams he told her these words 

 

I had to see the world outside

The way the moon comes up and the sun goes down

I had to go, I had to see

The way the leaves of trees go to brown from green 

I had to hear the ocean’s murmur

Lions’ roar, the way thunders crash

But now I’ve see it all I realized that

You’re my center of this universe

 

I know I caused you so many sleepless nights

You were thinking all the time how you could change my mind

I was freezing cold just like a piece of ice

And I saw the desperation in your eyes

 

I wish I could have loved you

I wish I could have felt the same inside

But my heart belonged to somebody else

And you knew I was fighting with doubts

 

So thank you for the time you spent with me

Everything you’ve done to make it work, to make me see

The one thing that I already knew

It’s so hard to find someone like you

 

Heaven sent you to me from above

To help me to survive, to protect me from the harm

You offered me your love on a golden plate

But I had to refuse it, it was just too late

 

I wish I could have loved you

I wish I could have felt the same inside

But my heart belonged to somebody else

And you knew I was fighting with doubts

 

So thank you for the time you spent with me

Everything you’ve done to make it work, to make me see

The one thing that I already knew

It’s so hard to find someone like you

 

A girl came along

She gave me the greatest gift she ever could, my life

She helped me growing up holding my hand tight

When I got scared in the dark she turned up the light 

 

A boy came along

He gave me the best thing I could ask for, his love

Consoled me when I cried saving me his life

In spite of my mistakes he’s been always by my side 

 

People came along

They gave and they took away

They taught and they asked

Some promised but never stayed

They built and they ruined

But only for me to be strong  

 

Caring angels 

In human form 

Some stay forever 

Some will go 

 

People came along

One of them offered me the key to find the light

Another one taught me some chords and made me laugh

But they somehow disappeared, I didn’t know why

 

More people came along

This girl gave me birthday cakes and her honest trust

This guy bought me a piano and he left so fast

And the man wearing an orange gown took care of the rest 

 

People came along

They gave and they took away

They taught and they asked

Some promised but never stayed, no

They built and they ruined

But only for me to be strong 

 

Caring angels 

In human form

Some stay forever

Some will leave right when their mission is done

 

Caring angels

In human form of loving creatures from above

Some stay forever

Some will go

 

I found the way to choose the things to save

And lose the ones that I don’t need anymore

 

Don’t criticize the way I play the cards

With no strategy, this is how I will break free

 

The stake is high

But I go for luck

I’ve got no aces

But I sure have got the look

 

I’m wild and brave

Waiting for the river to see

If I can beat the world

With my straight

If I got a straight

 

I sighed and laid on my bed and prayed

The universe knows exactly what I need

 

I fall or rise, it no longer can be disguised

And I’ll take it all the way it was meant to be

 

I love when it’s shining

And I love when it’s dark

I love drums and violins

And I love it blunt and sharp

I love tea and coffee

I so love spring and fall

I love you when you’re smiling

And I love you when you’re not

 

I love hot cider at winter

I love cocktails on the beach

I love learning how to do stuff

And I love when I can teach

I love it so spicy

And I love it without salt

I love you when you’re here with me

And I love you when you’re not

 

I love watching you when you sleep and have a dream

I love when you’re watching me when you think I fell asleep

I love when you take a picture of my face

To put it in your wallet to be able to see it every day….when you’re away

 

Hi, little girl

Don’t turn away

Don’t hide that pretty face

Forget your yesterday

Now say good-bye and wave

And fly 

 

Hi, little girl

Look into my eyes

You’ll see your reflection there

Just open up and trust

The one who knows you right

And smile

 

Life is a game

Play it like you

Never did before

Find a snow-white

Piece of paper

An empty canvas

Paint colors

You haven’t seen yet

And start to dance

Like nobody else

Release your mind

And your tears gonna

Fade away

Smile, little girl

And don’t be afraid 

 

Hi, little girl

Don’t ever be hard on yourself

Live like an angel on Earth

No regrets 

There’s nothing to lose d

Don’t forget

And I’ll guard your steps inside

You’ll be fine 

 

Life is a game

Play it like you never did before Find a snow-white piece of paper, an empty canvas

Find your way out of this madness Paint colors of your desires Dreams you’re

yearning for And start to dance Like nobody else Release your mind and your tears

gonna fade away Smile, little girl  Smile, little girl Smile little girl and don’t be afraid

 

Longing for a place

Where the sunrays wake me early morning

Trying to erase 

The thoughts in my head that keep revolving

Close embrace

Warm sunrays 

 

Longing for a place to go

When I am feeling low

Just a place to show

How to play a sunday kind of game

Each day and let it go

Let it go, let it go 

 

Where the cobbles are olden

Shine invitingly golden

Where the horizon

Unfolds a new side of dawn

And it feels like a dream 

Lingers frozen, everlastingly 

 

Longing for a place to go

When I am feeling low

Just a place to show

How to play a sunday kind of game

Each day and let it go

Let it go, let it go 

 

All the stars are like diamonds

In the bracelet of silence

The song of the blackbird

Brightens up the night world

Rising up to the sky 

Windblown memories captured by the dark 

 

Longing for a place

Where every day’s like sunday

Slowing down the pace

Ignoring inner fights

Warm sunrays

Slow sundays

 

You were standing there

Just how I remembered

Gazing at the silent sky

Close to You kingfishers fly

 

Be the sun for me

When I open the window

Be the candlelight at night

Watch over me when I sleep tight

 

Take me to a peaceful, silent place I’m meant to be

Show me how to use my wings and then just set me free

 

No matter how, we’ll be together

When I close my eyes I think of You with sweet surrender

Sensing the breeze You blow along the way I wander

All the things I see

Coming clear for me

Meditation Tree

 

And You’re standing there

I’ll always remember

Gazing at the silent sky

Close to You kingfishers fly

 

You’re the sun for me

When I open the window

You’re the candlelight at night

Taking care of me when I sleep tight

 

Take me to a peaceful, silent place I’m meant to be

Show me how to use my wings and then just set me free

 

No matter how, we’ll be together

When I close my eyes I think of You with sweet surrender

Sensing the breeze You blow along the way I wander

All the things I see

Coming clear for me

 

Meditation Tree

 

It was a stormy Wednesday

The wind was blowing all morning

Looking out of the window

The beach was deserted

With a yellow alert 

But when it stopped raining

My mama stood up and said to me

“It stopped raining,  so I am going out for a walk my dear” 

 

I said “I think it’s too early,

It’s still pretty windy” but she couldn’t hear me

She put on her raincoat

And left in a hurry

But I started to worry

It’s been two hours

But she still has not come home to me

It’s been two hours

I started to wonder where she could be 

 

I’m afraid my mama might have been blown away by the wind

The more I was thinking the more obvious it seemed

My mama’s got blown away by the wind

The more I was thinking the more obvious it seemed 

 

I was looking for reasons

To explain her absence,

I felt so helpless

How will I find her?

Has she got lost? Or is she on the way home yet?

It’s been three hours 

But she still has not come home to me

It’s been three hours 

I wonder where she could be 

 

I’m afraid my mama might have been blown away by the wind

The more I was thinking the more obvious it seemed

My mama’s got blown away by the wind

The more I was thinking the more obvious it seemed

 

I went up on the roof

With my binoculars, from there I might catch her 

Sweeping along the shore

I still didn’t find her

So I looked up higher

 

There she is, flying!

But she didn’t look frightened at all

She kept laughing

Soaring with ease like a bird would do

 

Now I now my mama’s got really blown away by the wind

My mama’s got blown away by the wind

My mama’s got blown away by the wind

My mama’s got really blown away by the wind

 

Lying on the top of the car

Looking up to the sky late at night

Can you see the strings between the stars

Rainbow colored thin little ties

 

This world is not real at all

 

Tell me do you want to know what I see

When kissing with eyes closed

I see a pink liquid world around me

While everything else is paused

 

This world is not real at all

The happiness that you feel

Will be melted away by the break of the dawn

It’s going to disappear

 

Only one night up above

 

The balcony’s like a big ship on the ocean

Cruising through the night

I feel like I’m Kate and your’re Leo

With our arms spread wide

 

This world is not real at all

The happiness that you feel

Will be melted away by the break of the dawn

It’s going to disappear

 

Only one night up above

 

Only tonight

The sky opens up and shares its secret life

Oh, what a mesmerising sight

 

This world is not real at all

The happiness that you feel

Will be melted away by the break of the dawn

It’s going to disappear

 

This world is not real at all

The beautiful things you see

Will be melted away by the break of the dawn

They’re going to disappear

 

Shell in the sand 

Carried ashore by the sea

Lies undisguised

Silently   

 

Pure, shining bright

Mother of pearl, golden light           

Trying to hide her beauty slumbering so peacefully

So fragile  

 

Telling a secret story

On a mysterious way we don’t understand

Warmed up by the sunlight slowly

Turning her hidden tears into hope for something new

Forgets the memories left behind  

 

And then at the end

Suddenly found by gentle hands

She starts to feel so warm inside

So this is what they call

Love

 

If I look around on a crowdy street

Most people passing by neither see nor hear

Keeping heads turned down, don’t seem to care at all

About the human beings surrounding so help them pay

 

A little bit of attention

Show a little bit of plain sympathy

Through the recognition that we’re one and we’ll always be

 

So clever it may seem building up a wall

Noone can cause harm or hurt us anymore

But not a ray of smile will come through the door

Of your fort so open up and try to pay

 

A little bit of attention

Show a little bit of plain sympathy

Through the recognition that we’re one and we’ll always be

 

Hold on just for a while

And you’ll start to feel the change

Of the life you live

To a better world

The way it was

Meant to be

It was meant to be free

 

Hold on just for a while

And you’ll start to feel the change

 

A little bit of attention

A little bit of plain sympathy

A little bit of compassion

A little bit of integrity

 

A little bit of acceptance

A little bit of generousity

A little bit of unselfishness

A little bit of sincerity

 

A little bit of devotion          

A little bit of honesty

A little bit of openness

Of everything that love can be

 

Wide awake I’m trying to sleep

It’s almost half past two

I’m picturing you lying next to me

The house is so empty without you

I know you’re safe

I guess it’s just so hard to wait

 

In the morning I’m having my coffee

In the kitchen that we painted together

Ready to start another sad day

But suddenly I start to wonder

If you were here

And saw me with these tears and fear

 

You would say

 

Show me a smile

My heart is aching seeing you cry

You’re my shore

I’m your ocean I always come back for more

 

Every single evening that we spend apart

Gives me a hard time thinking

Am I strong enough without you

Or am I weak and something’s missing

Show me how to see

Who I always wanted to be

 

Show me a smile

Even when you’re far let me fly

You’re the wave

In my water you are a part of me
