Track Name: song #1
Why such a long face?
In the morning
In the evening
Why such a disdain?
For your mother
For your lover

You spend your day
As if nothing matters anyway
You lost your will
I love you still

How come you forgot?
All the gods name
All your own shame
How come you lost faith?
In the sunlight
In a bird’s flight

You spend your day
As if no one cares now anyway
You lost your will
I love you still
Track Name: song #2
I don’t mind
I got time
If you want me to stay
I’ll spend the whole day
With you

We go out
In the light
If you knew what I meant
In this letter I sent
To you

It’s a wrong time and I feel I’m using you
It’s a wrong time and the kids grew
You won’t change it all
By making this call
Hello friend, goodbye love

Don’t you cry
Mother’s time
If you want anything
Unusual grin
I’ll do

Can’t you find
Peace of mind
I can share some of mine
Cause I have enough
For two

It’s a wrong time and I feel I’m using you
It’s a wrong time and the kids grew
You won’t change it all
By making this call
Hello friend, goodbye love
Track Name: song #3
There’s a light brightening up in me
After a life of shadow
There’s a train travelling on in me
I am about to follow

How come is it going so fast?
How come you are not in it?
I’m gonna do my best to make it last
Oh my brother you can count me in

Come on and dance with me all night
It’s scary but all right
Come on and sing a song with me
You’re now like family

Ever since I have grown up
I have troubles to live
Now there’s something that’s waking up
I have to change a bit

Oh now my brother won’t you see?
What’s happening inside of me?
I realise how I’ve been quite wrong
I feel a change that will stay for long

Come on and dance with me all night
It’s scary but all right
Come on and sing a song with me
You’re now like family
Track Name: song #4
I will go blind
If I lay my eyes
Upon your lost face
In this crowd of happy men

I hope you’ll find
Love in your mind
And a thousand smiles
That will stand against the pain

I do love
I do love
I do love you

Heaven in sight
You’ll be all right
As long as I write
A good poem about it all
I cannot stay
If you keep this way
That’s not a thing
To be shared with everyone

I do love
I do love
I do love you

Everytime I see light on your face
Everytime I come into your storm
I have this feeling alone
a sacred heart
You have a sacred heart

I do love
I do love
I do love you
Track Name: song #5
God loves you
More than I do
I know trouble
I had a few

I am not the one to care
I am trying to be fair
With you

You love to dance
You do it very well
Sometimes you sing
But that’s less your thing

You build castles in the air
You are trying to go there
With him

Oh my god I’m coming home
And I have to be alone
My heart turning to stone

I know you
More than they do
When you cry
Your soul stays dry

And you drove him to despair
But there’s nothing to compare
With me

Oh my god I’m coming home
And I have to be alone
My heart turning to stone
Track Name: song #6
My body’s made for the outdoors
I spend my life in here
I don’t know If I could ask more
I want you to come near

I want to hear birds all around
A lovely field of grass
My double glazing stops the sound
You’re not my love alas

I want to vanish for one year
I’ll be back my head clear
I want to follow my heart now
I’ll do it anyhow

It’s been a long time passing by
Since I have felt alright
It’s lonely here I don’t know why
I will sink into the night

Oh lovely mother all worried
Your son is in the wild
I have my load to be carried
I am no longer a child

I want to vanish for one year
I’ll be back my head clear
I want to follow my heart now
I’ll do it anyhow
