Philadelphia 02:59
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

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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!

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. - 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
