Track Name: Lady Lighthouse
He opened the door of his car and turned it off,
then she looked back and stared at him
They´d been talking for hours as if they just met,
but it was the night of broken hearts

Lady Lighthouse, keep turning and shining
’cause I need you please guide me thru the seas, yeah
Lady Lighthouse, keep smiling and moving
in the darkness, you´re the only thing I see

She seemed to be happy, she was fooling everyone
such a blue-eyed and perfect smile
For a while he was waiting for a sing to get her back
but it was the night of broken hearts

Lady Lighthouse…

Her body was found with a gun in her hand,
no letter around for nobody
She seemed to be happy, everyone agreed on,
But it was the night of broken hearts

Lady Lighthouse…

Lady Lighthouse, as happy as can be.
Track Name: Seven Seasons
I got a text today from you
you say you would like to take me out with you
I couldn´t reject when I gotta know the place

At the Seven Seasons’
somebody´s watching girls passing by
somebody is asking what you wanna have
but I only wanna hold your hand,
at the Seven Seasons’

Too many things for me are new
you brought my life to a different point of view
I feel I have changed
since you took me to that place

At the Seven Seasons’
Somebody is tired and wants to go away
somebody else is trying her to stay
and I would like to have a chance at the seven seasons
nothing happens for a reason at the Seven Seasons’
Track Name: Bye, bye, bye
One day I woke up and I was thinking I was Superman
But soon I realised I have to begin from the start
It's not that I´m unable to play it sharp
It's more I have the feeling I'm a wandering star

Take care of all the things they used to say,
The rush and the rumble of the waves lulls you to sleep
the sweet oblivion

bye, bye, to all the dreams we had
bye, bye, to the questions, the answers
bye, bye, to feeling I'm alive
bye, bye, bye

Once again I was trying to do cartwheels
but I felt the hunger of the time I spent memories,
of the space around me

bye, bye, to the persons who just left
bye, bye, to the summer and its winter
bye, bye, take over Superman
bye, bye, bye

Take over Superman, like if it doesn't matter
it's you whom I swear bye, bye

bye, bye…
Track Name: Moby Dick
The big city wasn´t waiting for his chords
Mama said “you couldn´t fight with a wooden sword”
Nobody was there when he failed on,
then he returned with eyes gone
and hopes to be back.

Moby Dick, The master of obsessions
that hides in every person, Moby Dick

“Please take a free flight to your dreams”
said a web-ad she decided to believe in
She crumbled down after photo shoots,
more than 10.000 likes all nice dudes
and some credit cards.

Moby Dick, He´s watching from here under
and can strike you like the thunder, Moby Dick

Again it was his birthday that he missed
Daddy promised to be there for the fifth
He realized he had no life
just before the failure of his heart.

Moby Dick…
Track Name: Christmas clouds
The clouds are looking at me, laughing at me,
while they point me with their fingers, so consciously
But my friends are protecting me, loving me,
wishing me Happy Birthday
but I still feel the clouds...

Once I see your eyes you make me tired of being a wanderer
Once I have your smile it takes ages to forget your love
Once I see your eyes, oh oh

I can see dark from my seat, it's getting closer
I'm not sure we're gonna make it
Christmas clouds still staring at me,
in a future flying back together

Once I see your eyes…
Track Name: Miss you Alan
The day was gone, with the stars above
I was not there with you as I would

It was good to see you, 'cause I miss you Alan

Was good to say hi, then you said bye
I don't believe you say it's done

I see you walk away, still love you Alan

I see you walk away, don´t believe you say it´s done,
’Cause I still love you Alan
Track Name: Gene my dear
Gene, my dear,
you always gotta blame someone
about your tears, about your laughter

Can't you hear?
Listen to the morning breeze
Listen to your friends, down the rabbit hole,

You are making things more complicated
you have to find out something better
Why don't you let us love you as you are,
and replace that trace of sorrow in your eyes?
Gene my dear

Gene my dear
you say you don't love me though,
got the problem now, I’ll bring it to an end.

You are…
Track Name: Second to none
I was where I wanted to be,
but then you came across unexpectedly.
I was doing like nothing happened,
but soon I realized I was, all of the sudden, loving you.

I just tried to live my little life,
unconcerned with getting five out of five.
But here you are, you´re second to none,
and I´m hypnotized.
All my will is under your sway,
I didn´t mean for it to happen this way.
Cause I guess you´re second to none,
and I´m paralyzed.

In a week it´s been one year
Since I pretend I´m over everything I feared.

I just tried to live my little life…
Track Name: Secrets
Last night I went to the place we met
so many guys but you weren´t there
I miss the lies you used to say
they made me feel ok

I tried to keep my feelings down
waiting that you ever come back
to the place that you belong

I know it looks like I am the one
that broke your heart and screwed things up
You think I didn´t know the truth
the stories you´ve been through

I tried to keep my feelings down…g
and then I felt you were so far
that baby I decided to start
and now I´ve got some secrets too

And so you heard some stories too
that I was kissing anyone but you
and then you felt so deep betrayed
but nothing was left to break

I tried to keep my feelings down…
Track Name: Summertime
(Lyrics Inspired by Charles Bukowski texts)

I sat in my room, I felt depressed
looking like lazy slug starting from the scratch

This is what I always have, nothing at all
welcome back Summertime, please make me disappear

Lonely solitude, I gotta terrible itch for.
Don´t wanna be somebody mingled with somebody

I’ve never been bothered at all, I'm just like a lucky dog
we need to rush out into the night, before it drives me mad.
I guess it's my Summertime, let me disappear

I don’t want to leave you alone, my little one,
nobody ever finds it, there's no chance at all

I can see a thousand lives, it’s mathematical,
It's all a zero equation, that gets no feeling back

This is what I always had, nothing at all
welcome back Summertime, make me disappear

I guess it's my Summertime, where we're all are trapped.
Track Name: Come soon
It's long ago, I have to see her
I bring some flowers to show her I care
Maybe today I'll have to tell her
I never loved nobody this way

Someday you'll have to take me away
out of the glimmer, out of the shade

Come soon my baby and bring me the sun

I can't believe how I miss you
How I care the words that showed me the way
I cherish the tears of joy I'm missing,
flooded by bitter ones shed in my bed

When I try to think over it my hands shiver
Bring me the air and the water, please take me to life

Come soon my baby, let's watch the morning sun
Without you here the morning will bring you
Come soon my baby…

Keep close, keep warm the morning will bring you
My Darling, my baby, my love
Track Name: Things to say
Monday was the day he chose, “there are things I'd like to say",
he thought, It will not take forever
So he took her to a quiet corner, she wouldn 't know what to expect,
and then, he took a piece of paper and started to read:

"I iove you, if you're not around I don't want to live.
I need you, I will only try to make you as happy as can be"

She didn 't miss a word he said, but suddenly dropped the hand he had held,
covered her red cheeks, and started to cry:

''I'm sorry, my heart belongs to someone else. At this mom ent we can only be friends .
I like you, you're a nice man , you will find your girl"

Years later he couldn't speak when they bump ed in a lonely street,
he tried "how is your family doing?"
She wore a lovely dress, nobody noticed her state,
she said “I'm having my third child, I'm ju st a happy wife"
They soon ran out of things to say, and sure he tried to pretend
he had no feelings left about her, but she realized:

"Please tell me that you still believe me, when I say today my love remains.
“I still love you. I will wait for you until the day I'm out of breath ".

Monday was the day he chose, "there are things I'd like to say", he thought.
