Track Name: Home is not a place it´s a feeling
Very North of Everything.
Very south of "Heaven"
lays the town where I was born.

I walked around in bad luck boots
in a black & white cartoon.
Only me and a Midnight Moon!

Everything I ever wanted
was on the wrong side of my fear.
And everyone couldn´t wait to tell me.
What I really didn´t want to hear.

HEY now, what do you know?
Home is not a place, it´s a feeling.
It´s where you wanna be.
A place for you and me.
What do you know?
A Heart is never heard - but felt & shared
in an Alice Wonderland, let´s make me understand.

Good people were like candles,
Burned up to give us light.
And that Town had one long night!

You can´t choose your hometown
but you can choose to walk away.
Walk away, if you can´t stay

Everything I ever wanted
was on the wrong side of my fear.
And everyone couldn´t wait to tell me.
What I really didn´t want to hear.

HEY now, what do you know?
Home is not a place, it´s a feeling.
It´s where you wanna be.
A place for you and me.
What do you know?
A Heart is never heard - but felt & shared
in an Alice Wonderland, let´s make me understand.

Let´s make me understand……
Cause Baby, it ain´t right…maybe it ain´t..

Very North of everything.
Very south of "Heaven"
lays the town where I was born.

HEY now, what do you know?
Home is not a place, it´s a feeling.
It´s where you wanna be.
HEY now, what do you know?
Home is not a place, it´s a feeling.
It´s where you wanna be.
A place for you and me.
What do you know?
A Heart is never heard - but felt & shared
in an Alice Wonderland, There´s where you wanna be.
Track Name: I just want 2B ALONE
Someone who kill my dreams
or predict my doom
are telling me their stories
and not mine

Just give me some time

Nothing can be found
when I got nowhere to go.
Nothing can be found
Just give me some time

This is what I do;
If I Want to share a thought - I´ll tell you
If I Want to share a bed - you´ll know
If I want to get to know you better
I´ll let you know

I´m not Mean - I´m Honest
I´m not Shy - I´m Quiet
I´m not Sad - I just want to be Alone

Stop guessing and get to know me
Stop thinking you know my kind
Stop guessing when I don´t call you
Stop making a reason why

I´m not Mean - I´m Honest
I´m not Shy - I´m Quiet
I´m not Sad - I just want to be Alone……
(and I got no where to go)

There´s a space where my heart has love
(but……?)
Nothing can be found where it doesn´t exist.
The question is patience or waisting my time.

Someone who kill my dreams
or predict my doom
are telling me their story.
Learn something new
that´s what I do.
Track Name: Fallirò Meglio
Fallirò Meglio

Man, this wine is so good
it feels like coming home.
I wanna drink a bottle
then walking home alone

In the gentle art
of not freaking out
I need to know what I say
but, not what you understand.
-
I made "WE" plans
with "I" minded people.
In the calm before the storm
I made a fire to keep me warm.

But I don´t want my smoke
to dampen all your sunshine.
Life is way to short.
"Buy the Artwork"
&
"Drink the Wine"

Ho provato.
Ho fallito.
Ma non importa perché
sempre riproverò

Tanto lo sai
che su quel muro alzato
prima o poi

ci faremo l´amore.

The times you don´t pretend
that you don´t really care.
You say you walk your talk
and you know what you´ve got to say.

But you use the power you gained today
to fight the demons of yesterday.
Listen more than you talk
and I know you´ll find a way.

Ho provato.
Ho fallito.
Ma non importa perché
sempre riproverò

Tanto lo sai
che su quel muro alzato
prima o poi

ci faremo l´amore.
-
You use the power you gained today,
Non importa, riproverò
To fight the demons of yesterday.
Ho almeno provato.

Ho provato
Ho fallito
Non importa, riproverò
You use the power you gained today
to fight the demons of yesterday.
Track Name: Come un minuto a Milano
Come un minuto a Milano

Time is not to kill
and it´s not forever.
Don´t unlearn your lesson but
give a sinner a second chance.

Like a silent poetry.
A sound of a silent melody.
Like a speaking painting.
The sound of you & me.

Come un minuto a Milano,
veloce come questo.
La vita passerò
Come un minuto a Milano,
veloce come questo.
Lasciato troppi perché

Come noi,
domande congiuntivi.
Come noi,
quando la vita passerò.
Dimmi perché e così?

You can tell me it´s forever.
You can tell me it´s all gone.
You can say to me "whatever".
But don´t leave me alone

I don´t need no angel.
I don´t need no "Cause".
I need something
to hold on to
and let you know.

Sitting here with my italian wine
waiting for a sign, that I´m feeling fine.
I can hear the sound of falling rain,
really pouring down on my window pain.

Come un minuto a Milano,
veloce come questo.
La vita passerò
Come un minuto a Milano,
veloce come questo.
La vita passerò
Come un minuto a Milano,
veloce come questo.
Lasciato troppi perché.
Domande congiuntivi.
Come noi,
quando la vita passerò.
Dimmi perché e così?

Come un minuto a Milano
Track Name: Get it done now
I´m just a steel horse cowboy
but I want you to stay.
I´m singing cowboy songs
when I got something to say

I´m breaking all the rules
I act like a fool.
But, I can change my ways
If you want me to stay

Wisdom came in this place
as a rain
falls on your face.

IF I can be yours - and I can be me.
It´s the only man - I want to be

Let´s Get it done now

Leave your pain on my shoulder.
Lay your head on my heart.
Let me be your soldier
make a brand new start.

and I will never sing
with the words I feel
belong to someone else.

Wisdom came in this place
as a rain
falls on your face.

IF I can be yours - and I can be me.
It´s the only man - I want to be

Get it done now

If I can be yours - If I can be me.
It´s the only man - I ever want to be
Track Name: Play me an old Chet Baker song
You got a great house on the country side
Few minutes walk to the sea.
A couple of horses and a black Porsche ride
why do you need me?

You see me standing on the stage
singing songs about my life.
Waving a beer to make my point
when I got something to say.

I know you blame the mirror
for the shadows and the tears.
But you were adding years to life
but no real life to years.

You say; Play me an old Chet Baker song
Play it just for me!
But I won´t
´cause I ain´t playing
someone else's song
for you

Your husband is working hard
bringing home his pay.
He wish he wasn´t to tired.
and he wish that you could stay.

But you take your shiny car
and you´re driving to this country bar.
You think your life ain´t fair
so you´re having an affair

You say; Play me an old Chet Baker song
Play it just for me!
But I won´t
´cause I ain´t playing
someone else's song
for you

Five hours in a car
An hour singing in this bar.
I couldn´t support you for a day
out of a month gigs pay.

I find myself here standing
between now and then.
With the same old question
all over again;

Where do I fit in?
Track Name: I always pretend there´s nothing wrong
I always pretend there´s nothing wrong

Man, this winter takes forever.
My kind of tired ain´t a feeling anymore.
It turned itself into a lifestyle.
I need a salty sea, I need to feel my smile.

Wanna take my guitar
Get in my car
Drive really far
´til the weather gets better

I´m learning the hard way,
my highway is never ending.
I remember the walks by the sea
me and my dog Elvis.

There´s a space in my heart
filled with fear and madness.
But I always pretend
there´s really nothing wrong.

I need a gig at the local bar
and I need your dollar in that hat.
For the gas for my old car
and that´s it with all of that.

Wanna take my guitar
Get in my car
Drive really far
´til the weather gets better
and that´s it with all of that.

Cause I miss a salty sea.
and I miss an olive tree.
I miss the man I used to be.
That´s it with all of that.

I´m learning the hard way,
my highway is never ending.
I remember the walks by the sea
me and my dog Elvis.

There´s a space in my heart
filled with fear and madness.
But I always pretend
there´s really nothing wrong.

There´s a space in my heart
filled with fear and madness.
But I always pretend
there´s really nothing wrong.
Track Name: That´s how I got to Tuscany
That´s how I got to Tuscany

She was working at the bar
Green eyes and a secret smile, she said;
You don´t look like you´re from around here.

She said take me to The River,
The Moon and The Stars.
Her beauty made me shiver.
I Forgot about my scars, that night.
That´s how I got to Tuscany

You could never take the wrong road
if you got nowhere to go.
And a place with a shortcut is not worth going to.

You could never take the wrong road
if you got nowhere to go.
The easy way out
never gonna take you far.

I live far away now.
In a lonely place.
How I ended up here
is a story not to be told.

I thought we´d always stick together
I didn´t wanna leave that place.
There´s pictures in my heart
and lines in this old face

You could never take the wrong road
if you got nowhere to go
and a place with a shortcut is not worth going to.

You could never take the wrong road
if you got nowhere to go
The easy way out
never gonna take you far
Track Name: Angels Share & Devils Cut a Gamblers Heart
Angels share & Devils cut a Gambler´s Heart

I Say it to your face
or not at all.
I State my case,
I walk my talk
But I ain´t nobody´s hero.

I hold on tight ´til I get it right
I don´t put my faith in my hate.
But, there´s a shadow in the mirror.

Sei una stella forte senza cielo.
Dovevo dire cose.

Angels share & Devils cut a Gambler´s Heart
Cose che sai.
Perché certe volti senti
ma servono parole.
Certe volti senti…..
…che tu sei una stella forte senza cielo.
Fai luce per me, senza dire niente,
fai luce per me
-
Don´t get mad and don´t get even
Don´t get sad if you´re not finding Eden
Wisdom is on the other side

Same old story, a brand new tear.
My "Bumper Sticker" for you right there.
Wisdom is on the other side

Sei una stella forte senza cielo.
Dovevo dire cose.

Angels share & Devils cut a Gambler´s Heart
Cose che sai.
Perché certe volti senti
ma servono parole.
Certe volti senti…..
…che tu sei una stella forte senza cielo.
Fai luce per me.
-
Fai luce per me.
Una stella senza cielo.
Dovevo dire cose, cose che sai.
Ma servono parole.
Una stella senza cielo,tu sei.
Fai luce per me senza dire niente.
Track Name: I´ll be your soft place to land
I´ll be your soft place to land

I met her at the local bar
Way out of her part of town.
She sipped a Cabernet wine and
lit up a cigarette.
She said; At a crossroad
that left turn might be right.
At a crossroad
a right turn might be wrong.

When you feel like quitting,
remember why you started.
Believe in the person
you wanted to become.
When you´re not as good
as you want to be,
remember that you´re better
than you used to be.
Need someone to help you understand
what you already know and a helping hand?
I´ll be your soft place to land.

I need to divide my hope from other´s plans.
´Cause where I´m standing now, I don´t
believe in what I´m thinking

She said; At a crossroad
That left turn might be right.
At a crossroad
Your right turn might be wrong.

When you feel like quitting,
remember why you started.
Believe in the person
you wanted to become.
When you´re not as good
as you want to be,
remember that you´re better
than you used to be.
Need someone to help you understand
what you already know and a helping hand?
I´ll be your soft place to land.

Running away from your problem
is a race you´ll never win
Don´t make your dreams smaller
´cause you´re within.
Don´t make your dreams smaller

When you feel like quitting,
remember why you started.
Believe in the person
you wanted to become.
When you´re not as good
as you want to be,
remember that you´re better
than you used to be.
Need someone to help you understand
what you already know and a helping hand?
I´ll be your soft place to land.
