Track Name: Philadelphia
PHILADELPHIA

Our Coffee Shop at South Boulevard.
I´m walking down along "Highland Park".
Try to sort a head out is hard.
I know it´s kind of late and it´s dark.

I just want you to follow my light,
but finding your own way as you go.
I just want you to trust a journey.
It happens for a reason.

Let me carry your pain

On the Streets of Philadelphia
Walk the Streets of Philadelphia

I counting all the times you can't feel
what you really want to believe.
I know you want to cross your river.
Trust my bridge, it´s for real

Try to sort a head out is hard.
I KNOW A DOUBT can take you under.

Lay down your head on my heart
Let me carry your pain
Walk with me
Track Name: That´s how it feels to come home
That´s how it feels to come home

You & I are more than friends.
We´re more like a really small gang.
I´ve done a lot of choices bad
to get to the right place.

I get even when I get mad.
I get crazy when I get sad.
Please don´t set my demons free.
That´s not who you want me to be.

I got stuck inside a twilight zone
and time didn´t pass on for years.
But when you got a dream to follow
it´ll wash away your sorrow.

Don´t want to take away a mother.
Don´t want to try to be a father.
Just a friend, like a brother
if you want me to.

But you never let me try
without a reason why
you shut me out
with a doubt
and I wonder why.
´cause you & I are more than friends.
We´re more like a really small gang.
My bedroom with a scent of my woman.
That´s how it feel´s to come home.

Your sun bleached hair on the pillow
in a new made bed.
My bedroom with a scent of my woman.
That´s how it feel´s to come home.

I got stuck inside a twilight zone
and time didn´t pass on for years.
But when you got a dream to follow
it´ll wash away your sorrow.
Wash away your sorrow.

Don´t want to take away a mother.
Don´t want to try to be a father.
Just a friend, like a brother
if you want me to.

But you never let me try
without a reason why
you shut me out
with a doubt
and I wonder why.
´Cause you & I are more than friends.
We´re more like a really small gang.
My bedroom with a scent of my woman.
That´s how it feel´s to come home.
Track Name: Sono quei momenti che....
Sono quei momenti che...

Worry is a waste of imagination
trust your journey, it has a reason
Give wings to your phantasy
You talk with your eyes
filled with joy
Crystal clear
you send me love
without a word
you give me wings to my phantasy

Se potessi scegliere
quei momenti che
aspetterei che ci fossi tu

E rivivrei quel sospiro
in fondo al petto.
Il battito il cuore
sono quei momenti che,
che mi rilassa l´anima.

Tuo capo scompigliato
occhi cristallini
ancora mezzi chiusi.
Pien di luna
seduti sulla sabbia
a dorso nudo
solo noi due,
sono quei momenti che
Il battito il cuore

Se potessi scegliere
quei momenti che
aspetterei che ci fossi tu

E rivivrei quel sospiro
in fondo al petto.
Il battito il cuore
sono quei momenti che,
che mi rilassa l´anima.

You talk with your eyes
filled with joy
Crystal clear
you send me love
without a word
you give me wings to my phantasy
sono quei momenti che
rivivrei quel sospir
Il battito il cuore

Se potessi scegliere
quei momenti che
aspetterei che ci fossi tu

E rivivrei quel sospiro
in fondo al petto.
Il battito il cuore
Track Name: Only Half Wrong
Only Half Wrong

Like my smile,
it´s complicated,
Mental winter,
never make spring.

Nothing lost.
Nothing won.
Is true compassion
something wrong?

Life´s a moving target
but not tonight
Sharp beginning
of a long eternity

My bucket list turned
upside down
your angel smile
looks like a frown

Come un vulcano con forza, bellezza.
Mai tirato giù lo sguardo.
Un caldo gentilezza.
Un segno della croce.

A glass of wine
at the bar,
my dream didn´t
take me far.
A "Leave Me Alone" sign
tattooed
on this heart of mine

Come un vulcano con forza, bellezza.
Mai tirato giù lo sguardo.
Un caldo gentilezza.
Un segno della croce.

A bottle of wine and a broken dream
Life is done but there´s still time to come
Nothing´s lost - Nothings won.
WHAT´S THE SENSE OF DOING ANYTHING ONLY HALF WRONG
only half wrong?

Come un vulcano con forza, bellezza.
Mai tirato giù lo sguardo.
Un caldo gentilezza.
Un segno della croce.
What´s the sense in everything?
Un caldo gentilezza.
Un segno della croce.
Track Name: A bottle of bourbon and a brand new scar
A bottle of bourbon and a brand new scar

My black dog Elvis
my road worn black guitar.
A bottle of bourbon
and a brand new scar.

You left a kiss on the mirror
and a condom by the bed
and dropped the keys in my letterbox

I need a sane face
in front of me one day
that tell me things I understand

Let go of pain & past
but keep the lesson learned
Don´t wanna waste another day

My black dog Elvis
my road worn black guitar.
A bottle of bourbon
and a brand new scar.

I guess I saw it coming,
I felt it all a long.
I know with you, there´s something wrong.

A bourbon and a brand new scar

Close your eyes
Live your own life on a lie
but I can´t take this anymore

No more sleepless night,
No more useless fight
Don´t wanna waste another day

My black dog Elvis
my road worn black guitar.
A bottle of bourbon
and a brand new scar.
Track Name: I´ll be there for all of you
I´ll be there for all of you.

Doing 50 miles an hour.
Our old Chevy is getting slow.
3:30 in the morning.
and I´m driving home from work

Really hope you´re sleeping.
I know it´s sometimes bad,
some memories makes you sad.
Want to tell you something
when you wake up
and I see you smile.

There´s always been
a little bit of you
in everything about me
I just want to let you know

If there´s a little one who look like you
or maybe look like me in you.
I just want to let you know,
I´ll be there for you.
I´ll be there for you.
For all of you

5 am, first sunlight.
I just got home, can´t wait to hold you tight
But I make a coffee
so I can watch you sleep.
Your blonde hair on the pillow
I can hear you breathe

I can see you dreaming.
I hope it´s nothing bad,
some memories makes you sad.
Want to tell you something
when you wake up
and I see you smile.

There´s always been
a little bit of you
in everything about me
I just want to let you know

If there´s a little one who look like you
or maybe look like me in you.
I just want to let you know,
I´ll be there for you.
I´ll be there for you.
For all of you

I can see you dreaming.
I hope it´s nothing bad,
some memories makes you sad.
But I make a coffee
so I can watch you sleep.
I can hear you breathe
Some memories makes you sad.
Some memories makes you sad.
Some memories makes you sad.

There´s always been
a little bit of you
in everything about me
in everything about me
Track Name: Devil´s Radio
Devil´s radio

A false smile
that never reach your eyes
I think you need a new disguise
You lit a cigarette
sip your wine
give me a reason now to stay.

You made your own jail
You stayed right in it
Year after year.
I need no reason
to leave you
give me a reason now to stay.

Backstabbing - Devil´s radio
so the story goes
Backstabbing - Devil´s radio
You might hear stories about me
but you never hear mine
You made your own jail
and stayed right in it
year after year.
A false smile
that never reach your eyes
I think you need a new disguise

Backstabbing - Devil´s radio
so the story goes
Backstabbing - Devil´s radio
You might hear stories about me
but you never hear mine

Too many hard miles, bad roads,
trying to get by
Life doesn´t have to be
all that easy
just wanna live it ´til I die

Backstabbing - Devil´s radio
so the story goes
Backstabbing - Devil´s radio
You might hear stories about me
You might hear stories about me
but you never hear mine

A false smile
that never reach your eyes
give me a reason now to stay.
Track Name: We Can´t Breathe
We Can´t Breathe

He go to church every Sunday
go home and beat his wife.
That´s John, you know him.
He lived here all of his life.

She let the man pull her low enough,
low enough to hate him.
She said: "I don´t need to sugar coat things,
God or hell will get him."

-We Can´t Breathe-
The same air anymore

Her table, same old chair
red dress, now grey old hair.
Red high, high heels
on the bar on Bourbon Street.

She cry her arguments real
then turn a bottle upside down.
She said: "I don´t need to sugar things,
God or hell will get him"

-We Can´t Breathe-
The same air anymore
Track Name: Che cosa tu sta facendo
Second night in a row now
it´s 3 in the morning.
I´m trying to call you
but I can´t get through

I so didn´t need this
I so didn´t want this
and I tried hard to tell you
but you didn´t listen

I still have my pride, That is all I have
and a straight honest question; "Do you want THIS or not?"
Così non si fa!
Che cosa tu sta
facendo adesso?
Che cosa tu fai?
Perché non ci sei
adesso, allora?

Can´t keep up with your pace
Can´t read in your face
if you´re coming or going
anyone of these days

I know what I gave you
not so sure what you took
but my ghost tonight
winning this fight

I still have my pride, That is all I have
and a straight honest question; "Do you want THIS or not?"
Così non si fa!
Che cosa tu sta
facendo adesso?
Che cosa tu fai?
Perché non ci sei
adesso, allora?

There´s no time to see me
I always get an excuse
Everything is more important
than me loving you

Second night in a row now
it´s 3 in the morning
I´m trying to call you
but I can´t get through

Così non si fa!
Che cosa tu sta
facendo adesso?
Che cosa tu fai?
Perché non ci sei
adesso, allora?
Perché non ci sei

Che cosa tu sta
facendo?
Perché non ci sei
Così non si fa!
Track Name: A War behind him & Hate up front
They always said
he had a complicated smile.
More like a frown
turned upside down
He never follow dreams
he chase them.
He don´t believe in things
he makes them.
He lost his wife
but keep on walking anyway
for a better life
for his son one day.
Might be a reason
for his smile one day
´cause his past
has nothing new to say
-
He is thirsty
& he is cold.
He´s a young man
looking old
WAR behind him
& HATE upfront.
Nobody wants him.
Some show they don´t.
-
He need to take a chance
with nothing left to loose
but a broken heart.
Something lost
that can´t be found.
Walking all those miles,
a brand new start.

He need to take a chance
with nothing left to loose
but a broken heart.
Something lost
that can´t be found.
Walking all those miles,
a brand new start.
-
It happens for a reason
and his past has nothing new to say.
And his past has nothing new to say
-
He TRUST his journey
it happens for a reason
and his past
has nothing new to say.
Pushed by worries
Lead by a dream
for a better life
with you & me
