Track Name: Streets of N.Y.C.
Streets of NYC

Brooklyn bridge, Hudson river
Ocean parkway, Beverly road.
Houses all around you
and you feel at home.

A hundred flats on top of you,
beside you and below you.
People are for using
and things to be loved.

You teach your children about respect
while your lawyer sue your neighbor
your mother and your brother
and things to be loved

Summer winter rain & snow
I´m playing songs for your coffee to go.
on the sidewalk

Singing songs about my past
a life that past away to fast
there´s a $´s in my guitar case
Streets of NYC

I conquer demons
I beat them fair
but I am to sad, to tired to care.
I want to see a sane face
around me one day

so I´m packing up my old van
want to feel the sun, I want to get a tan
Hope there´s gas in this old Ford
´cause I´m out of here

Summer winter rain & snow
I´m playing songs for your coffee to go.
on the sidewalk

Singing songs about my past
a life that past away to fast
there´s a $´s in my guitar case
Streets of NYC

You pass me by no time to loose
look in my eyes look at my shoes
my worn out guitar & old tatoos

You working hard 24/7
really don´t know where you think you´re headin´
´cause you look like you really died

but missed the plane to heaven

Str of NYC….
Track Name: Un altro giorno come ieri
Un altro giorno come ieri

La stessa Piazza.
l´aria del mattino.
Il solito caffè
a nostro tavolo.

Sempre la stessa cameriera
un altro giorno come ieri

Can´t put my arm around a memory
I´m walking down the memory lane

I saved your letters
I saved your mail
and all the words said face to face.
So by now you and I
we passed the point of no return.

Can´t put my arm around a memory.
You´re just a memory.

La stessa Piazza.
l´aria del mattino.
Il solito caffè.
Un altro giorno come ieri.

All the time, everywhere
in every crowd I see your face.
Can´t put my arm around a memory
La stessa Piazza.
l´aria del mattino.
Un altro giorno come ieri.
Un altro giorno come ieri.
Track Name: Let´s go for a walk
Let´s go for a walk

Cigarette smoke
and empty minds.
Let´s go for a walk.
Leave your friends with mine

Io voglio stare con te
Ma certe volte sento
che la magia, e finita.
Non sempre stato facile

Io ti sempre ascolterò
e se cadrai io ti prenderò
Dimmi tu, dimmi come stai?
E nei tuoi giorni che cosa fai?
Cigarette smoke
and empty minds.
Let´s go for a walk.

You need someone to tell you
you´re not alone?

You need someone to ask you
to stay?

Let´s go for a walk.
Leave your friends with mine.

Sei un ramo dentro la corrente
mi sbatti a dosso.
E la magia, e finita.
Non sempre stato facile

Io ti sempre ascolterò
e se cadrai io ti prenderò
Dimmi tu, dimmi come stai?
E nei tuoi giorni che cosa fai?

Leave your friends with mine.
Cigarette smoke
and empty minds.
Let´s go for a walk.

You need someone to tell you
you´re not alone?

You need someone to ask you
to stay?

Let´s go for a walk.
Let´s go for a walk.
Track Name: Make your courage stay
Make your Courage stay

I walked my fields
in rain and snow.
Contemplating what I don´t really know.
But, I gotta let it go.

Don´t look back
you´re not going that way
Try to be the reason
for someone´s smile today,
while finding your own way.

They cut your wings
but you can fly.
Just find the things
that make it all worth while,
that make you wanna try.
I promise you can fly.
Like a deer can fly
fast enough for a Journey with a Reason.
Just make your courage stay
and leave yesterday.
Make your courage stay

If you´re gonna rise
you might as well shine,
Without a disguise
follow the hidden line.
I promise you´ll be fine.

Don´t let yesterday
take too much of today.
Today is the tomorrow you were
promised yesterday.
So let´s do things today.
Make your courage stay.
They cut your wings
but you can fly.
Just find the things
that make it all worth while,
that make you wanna try.
I promise you can fly.
Like a deer can fly
fast enough for a Journey with a Reason.
Just make your courage stay

The same old story, brand new tears.
You say you´re sorry,
fighting fears tonight.
It´s darkness in your light.

I fight my hate
He fight his conscience.
Pay the prize!
´Cause someone´s gotta pay.
But, I can´t fly that way.
Just make your courage stay

Don´t look back
you´re not going that way
Try to be the reason
for someone´s smile today,

Make your courage stay
Track Name: Don´t Know If You Make It Back Home
Too hot, too cold,
too wet, too dry.
You hate when she cries,
and her smile.
Neighbors too close
House is too small
I don´t know, I don´t know
if you make it back home

Stay with me, stay close
Leave me alone
come here, protect me
Leave me alone
Kids are too loud
Silence as well
I don´t know I don´t know
if you make it back home

You run for your life
just to make it back home
You run for your life
You really hope they´re gone
But The faster you turn
The closer they get
Ghosts are inside of you
Don´t know if you make it back home

At times I feel bad
when I try to help
At times I feel worse
the times I don´t.
Brain-ghosts from the past
chase you around.
I don´t know, I don´t know
if you make it back home
Track Name: dirty window
Stop tell me that you´re all alone
Stop tell me that you´re not that strong
I know it´s a hell hole ride
You´re not alone ´cause I´m on your side

Your chances go from slim to none
if you try making done undone
why don´t ya try getting´up on your feet
show me a beast that I can´t beat

Looking out through a dirty window
I see the night through last years fingerprints
outside my window a dark horizon
but I do see a silver lining-through a dirty window

Heaven promise you everything
but keep hiding behind that blue
I never promised you anything
But now I do, I will stay behind you

Sometimes it´s hard to say
If your are right or if you´re wrong
But you always walked your way
I picked you up on the right side of wrong

I loose - my religion
When you´re wearing that pretty red dress
I make - my confession
I wanna take you like there´s no tomorrow
Track Name: I´m your brother
I´m Your Brother

“Trust me I´m your brother, man”
This son of a bitch said.
“You´ll never have to worry
I´ll cover your back”.

It seems there is nothin´
In this world that last.
Still I´m trying to find
Some peace of mind.

Try to walk in my shoes, maybe
that´ll teach you one or two things about life.
Try to walk in my shoes

You share your wisdom
and open your heart
He´ll sneak up behind you, yeah
and tear you apart
He´ll never care to worry
to find out what´s true
He´ll never have the courage
to bring things up with you

I say;
Try to walk in my shoes, maybe
that´ll teach you one or two things about life.
Try to walk in my shoes.
I just wanna stay here.
It´s so far away.

well, even his daughter once heard him on the phone, laughing and
She said; “Listen to his fake laughter, mama.
Doesn´t he sound exactly like a fake santa clause”
maybe he was talking to his brother saying;
“Trust me like a brother, man
Trust me, I´m your blod,….man
I´m your blod”
Track Name: You better hold on to your love
You better hold on to your love

I can´t stand for
anything you pay me for.
I ain´t gonna sing someone else's song.

Yes, I feel got something to say
´cause I lived that long.
If you don´t care to listen
Then I ain´t your clown.

You better hold on
to your love.

For you, good or bad.
For you sane and mad.
I know some good things gone bad and it
makes me sad

If it´s too damned cold
for a tree to survive.
Then tell me, buddy.
How could I?

You better hold on
to your love.

How do you want to get out of here?
Where do you fit in?

Is your traffic light Green or Red?
You got your enemy inside your head.
Inside your head.
Track Name: Emozioni
EMOZIONI

It is funny how someone
who was a stranger a year ago,
can mean so much to me now.
It´s funny what a year can do.

And someone who meant so much to me,
is just a stranger to me now

Mentre cammini
tagliando un raggio sole
e con l´ombra
che ti segue, disegnava
il tuo corpo sulla sabbia
l´immagine che dava
riempiva di emozioni

Seduti su, di un tavolo
con un bicchiere di vino.
La tua mano, fra i capelli
mi racconti la tua vita.

And someone who meant so much to me
Is just a stranger to me now.

Mentre cammini
tagliando un raggio sole.
E con l´ombra
che ti segue, disegnava
il tuo corpo sulla sabbia
l´immagine che dava
riempiva di emozioni

Vorrei rapirti dai miei sogni
per renderti realtà
col tuo sorriso
che fra i denti
un piccolo spazio

It is funny how someone
who was a stranger a year ago.
Can mean so much to me now.
It´s funny what a year can do
La tua mano, fra i capelli
mi racconti la tua vita.

Mentre cammini
tagliando un raggio sole.
E con l´ombra
che ti segue, disegnava
il tuo corpo sulla sabbia
l´immagine che dava
riempiva di emozioni
