Track Name: Waited For You
I've never met a guy like you
so warm and vast equally
your mantra is there's always a chance
but I don't think so, how could I

I feel it there's a gleam of hope
an incentive so strong
how do you do this, we thought ourselves lost
and you pull us out, beyond words

I can't describe how we feel
now that the whole thing is done
you saved us from a calamity
thanks a million, you are loved

we have waited for you
Track Name: Arouse Me
so you long for times when I used to go along
so wanting for to awake into a happy song
feeling stronger by hearing for longer the sounds of the ideal world
all my power pooled in a flower and I didn't even know
please make my voice sounding, please arouse me

so you long for times when I used to give solace
to dry your tears and retrieve a smile in your face
close your eyes son, tell all our friends to come to this colourful place
all my senses perceive valences that I used to love
please take my hand and join me, please arouse me

please revisit your homeland, please arouse me
Track Name: Devil's Oak
I have no idea where else to search for him
all I have is nil and a piece of nothing
all I do not want is to lose my best friend
please take all the grey and light it up to white

please say, he'll come back

oh please devil's oak, lead me to the cave
I know he must be there, otherwise I'm at my wit's end

suddenly it's dark, everything is dark
suddenly it's dark, everything is so

as I watched the daylight here
my both eyes they got washed away
I missed everything
the sun and trees and birds of gay

all the while in the dark I did know
that you would find my body lying in low

I feel my blood is running through my veins
I feel the joy defeating all the pain
Track Name: Fly With Me
come fly with me my dear
let's breathe in the light for once and disappear
once sing and rejoice together
let's feel the pleasant breeze
I will handle this dizzy height
there's no need to be afraid

come fly with me my friend
see how brightly coloured is the whole land
seas, meadows and all the houses
and how the sunbeams caress the treetops
now tell me, isn't that a sight
lovely with you I can share this flight

it's an honour to have you by my side

come fly with me my mate
there's no bad vibes left we'd have to bate
we're like the angels in heaven
like the eagles over the mountains
and there's nothing to stop us now
we are immortal, and how
Track Name: Steady Like You
and as I grew all that I knew was just violence and anguish
wherever I was they were behind and they were smiling hideous
I ever knew to be happy, to be lively, to be me
am I too young or am I just too strung out from all these events

I want to be steady like the fire, steady like the waters, steady like you
steady, steady like the fire, steady like the morning sun, just like you

a long trail is always hard to pass but did I even see the right course
because all that I, all that I always really wanted was to say

here I am, steady like the fire, steady like the proud trees, steady like you
here I stand, steady like the fire, steady like a hurricane, steady like you
steady, steady like the fire, steady like the biggest wall, steady like you
steady, steady like the fire, steady like the mighty rocks, steady like you
steady, steady like the fire, steady like the love you give, steady like you
Track Name: Deep Blue Water
the sun it blinds my eyes, I hear the sound of the waves
and feel the white and crumby sand under my feet
the seagulls sing their tunes into the golden horizons
make me as light as a feather

I'm floating through the sound of all the jolly kids
the wind so invigorating makes my shirt flap
my mind it is a song that's dancing naked to itself
my heard cries out tears of delight

and now that the deep blue water
cools my head and neck and shoulders
I abandon all my bad thoughts and replace
them with pictures of flowers and never ending hours
of breathing all the love the world is holding for me
Track Name: Summer Swing
once upon a time there was a guy
who's heart is silent but who's still alive
his voice it can be heard at any place and time
but although he retired in the haze

he gave birth to animals and men
with every single word again and again
an elephant, a lion and a bear he was
but always stayed true to himself

being young is such a beautiful thing
crying from laughter in a summer swing
rubb your back on a tree
and dance and sing your heart out to me

and as he took his hat and turned away
all of these hearts were squalling in pain
he left a hole because he left too soon
and his coffin was sealed with burning tears

being young is such a beautiful thing
crying from laughter in a summer swing
beware of dogs and bare your teeth
and dance and sing your heart out to me

but though he will be missed for good
even more than he ever knew he would
he will rise and his timbre will sound and then
it will overlay everything with love

staying young inside can save a life
I will party hard in the hive
and then i will stand on a haystack
waving the sky and watch you wave me back
Track Name: Leila
spent the night on thinking, I was wide awake
your angel dancing and your person stuck in my head
my heart it jumps around, my feet don't touch the ground
I so want to know, where are you now

you flood every place you go with the brightest light
that blossoms out every flower and every mind
Leila, I want you and there's nothing I can do
to pieces I am torn, where have you gone

I won't give you up, quite the contrary
and if I will die, I will find you whatever it takes
I will not turn around, will climb every mount
because I know that we belong together

I want to be with you, always, with all I am
Track Name: Guide Us Home
slowly I lie down in tiredness
close my little eyes more or less
will you be with me, I ask
you just smile

the day fades into the night
I see your star shining bright
as I giggle in delight
guide me home
guide us home
