Track Name: Don´t listen to the song
Don´t listen to this song

Not a cloud on the sky
as far as I can see.
I need to find my cleanest dirty shirt,
and worn out jeans.

Ain´t gonna rain today
I think the summer came
Gotta get out in the sun
and tell me something with a song

Think a lot about you
I think I even MISS YOU TO.
but as far as I can see
you don´t need
to know that

I only had your hand in mine
and got you, woman, on my mind.
as far as I can see
you don´t need
to know that
so don´t listen to this song

As sure as Jesus and a Pick up truck
in a southern country song,
You gonna mess me up
but make me feel alive again.

But if your phone don´t ring
it´s me not calling you.
´Cause I got so much to say
all the words got in the way

Think a lot about you
I think I even MISS YOU TO.
but as far as I can see
you don´t need
to know that

I only had your hand in mine
and got you, woman, on my mind.
as far as I can see
you don´t need
to know that
so don´t listen to this song
Track Name: Start with a try
Start with a try

Courage is mastery
and not absence of fear.
You gotta know your limitations
and then you send them all to hell.

I know you didn´t stumble
I know it´s part of your dance
But I know angels can be humble
so give a sinner one more chance

Everything starts
A decision to try
Got to keep on trying
life is LIVE right now.
If it´s not NOW
If it´s not THIS
Believe that you can
and you´re halfway there

If I can´t be your tree
Won´t be your best bush on your hillside
Won´t be the "Last one to Fight"
Won´t be the first one to make up

My past is part of me
but never who I am.
And trust ain´t a big thing.
It´s a million one small things.

Everything starts……

Track Name: I just wanna see you
I just wanna see you

Me and Jack doesn´t always dance so well together
I know I might have had too many of them last night.
I know that property is a relative term for a thief.
You stole my soul last night, not sure if I want it back.

Just wanna see you
but do I want you more than I fear you?
Just wanna see you
but do I want you more than I fear your hidden smile
when you look into my eyes?

I know that stupid is exactly what stupid does.
Had all those different stories
ending all the same.
Life doesn´t have to be easy
as long as it is not empty.
And I know that stupid is exactly what stupid does.

Just wanna see you
but do I want you more than I fear you?
Just wanna see you
but do I want you more than I fear you?
Just wanna see you
but do I want you more than I fear your hidden smile
when you look into my eyes?

If you could live your life again
would you live it all the same?
I might do some things different......
I´ll do ´em all again.

She had to grow up in a world
that grew faster than herself.
When roses mature too soon,
they fading way too fast.
Track Name: We can take this higher
We can take this higher

How could something right
turn out so wrong?

Only losers in our fight

We lost somewhere
all the stupid things we….. never made.


Is this love? I´m in love
we can take this higher

Half of the words is not
suitable for a song,
Other half
not for my head.

I only regret
all the stupid things we….. never made.

I never regret
the things that I´ve done.
But I do regret
all stupid things I never done.

Half of these words is not
suitable for a song.
The other half
is not suitable for my head.

Always no words!
When I try to speak,
always the wrong words.

I never regret
mistakes that I have made
But I do regret
all stupid things I never done.
Track Name: Soldier
The Soldier
It is a sad story about a guy I met down in Croatia once who lost his whole family during the war. He wasn´t there when it happened ´cause he was out fighting for his country somewhere else. To honour his family he´s once a year carrying a large cross along the streets of his city. I´d like to dedicate this song to him and his family, wherever they are.

I tell my story
with a beer and whiskey.
Waving a bottle to make a point.

I tell my story
wrong and right.
Yeah, war is over not the fight.

I´m a soldier, no army by my side
Just a faded tattoo on my arm.
A chance in a million that I will win this war.
Oh no, Honey, I don´t think so”.

I´ve been waiting,
anticipating,
contemplating right or wrong.

Day and night
It´s worth the fight.
got nothing to loose
I just might.

You want me to change (h-ciss-d)
fill that emptiness in my heart (a-h)
I got nothing left to loose (a)
Except this lonely heart (ciss-h)
Just tell me what is wrong
I tell you what is right
I´ll keep on fighting this war, It´s war of loneliness
Track Name: Be Proud of who you are
B Proud of who U R

I´ve been played, burned, stabbed and broken.
I am proud of myself that I´m still walking.
I´ve been dancing with the devil
I wonder if I´m still in hell.
I´m the one, who´s been there for everyone.
But now "this one" also needs someone.
I´ve been dancing with the devil
I wonder if I´m still in hell.
-
Don't push me away, with your actions
and ask me to stay, with your words.
Don´t rub my back, with your hands
and then stab it, with my trust.
Don't say you´re ready, ready to start.
Then be the reason, why we fall apart.
Change is painful, but nothing is as painful
as being stuck, where you don´t belong.

You can never Turn back time
Got to Hold on to that moment.
Life is going on right now.

You can never Turn back time
Keep your shoulders wide, your head held high
´cause THAT is "who you are"!
Be proud of who you are!

I´ve been played, burned, stabbed and broken.
I am proud of myself that I´m still walking.
Accept my past, support my present,
encourage my future and I give you my soul.
