I can tell at a glance you’re really sincere Your plans realistic, your tactics austere Your life is following a consistent plot Writing another page without a blot You can’t be impulsive, I can definitely say Nothing’s compulsive for you in any way You never take decisions right on the spot Turning another page without a blot Turning another page without a blot Don’t lead a life of quiet desperation Anything can slip away through fingers like the sand What matters is the trip and not the destination Live deep and the world will be an oyster in your hand It’s sad if you stay forever there in your shell I know it’s hard but I can definitely tell You’ll never win playing for life’s “all-in” pot Hoping for another page without a blot Hoping for another page without a blot Another page… Without a blot… Another page… Without a blot…

I’m walking down the streets My steps detuning my heartbroken beats I need to chase my dreams that I left behind Without new drama queens that try to darken my sky I write a song on guitar I grab my hat, walk straight to a bar The time stops for a while when she enters the Room with her charming smile, she comes up and says “hi” (Oh what a night) She’s magically charismatic Her heart is one of a kind Hopelessly romantic I wanna burn in her mind And I tell her stories about my greatest trips, when I suddenly notice her rosy lips This girl is cute and joyful, oh God this night is turning so beautiful And I say silly things about my life, and she’s joking about becoming my wife Her cheeks are burning from laughing, I’m having the hell of a time. She’s magically charismatic Her heart is one of a kind Hopelessly romantic I wanna burn in her mind She’s magically charismatic Half of our hearts will be twined Sometimes a bit enigmatic I wanna burn in your mind

Hey how you’re feeling? Guess you’re home. With what you ‘re dealing, so alone? You know like this only your heart is growing older. At night you sleep while all your dreams are getting colder. Under the endless sky I wanna be where we belong. Can’t help this feeling is so strong. I wanna show you how to survive. Erase those dreams, you will come alive. No point in hiding, in the dark. Let me light you, with my spark. And with that light surround you soul; make you stronger. Catch all your dreams and bake them till they get you warmer. Under the endless sky I wanna be where we belong. Can’t help this feeling is so strong. I wanna show you how to fly. Under the endless beautiful sky You can learn how to fly, under the sky You can learn how to fly, under the sky We can learn how to fly, under the sky We can learn how to fly, under the sky That’s right do it; you’re moving along We have the words; let’s sing together a song And now you’re free, you learned how to fly Spread your wings and wave your fears goodbye

Looking into the sparkle of your eyes in the moonlight Softly holding your hand under the candlelight That’s a moment I want to remember Midnight could last forever The band is playing a waltz and I ask you to dance by the river We go under the bridge and I feel like I’m getting a fever You’re my heart’s and my mind’s possessor Midnight could last forever And we dance and we dance under the stars And her red dress is folding around my figure And we laugh, we fall down in the sand And the moon is a ball on the tip of my finger You’ve proved to me smoothly you’re such a good-kisser I’m holding you gently in my arms and I whisper “Let’s spend our lives together” Hoping midnight will last forever

Politicians 03:52
We take care of the city Doing always the hardest work We can’t rest it’s a pity Whether is daylight or already dark We’ll make decisions for you; you have to follow our rules. Don’t even care if we screw, we think you’re already fools. We’re gonna chew all your food; keep some leftovers for thieves. And when you’re completely nude, we’ll offer you just fig leaves. We look after you people Offering always precious jobs We help you build the desire To choose over so many goods We’ll make decisions for you; you have to follow our rules. Don’t even care if we screw, we think you’re already fools. We’re gonna chew all your food; keep some leftovers for thieves. And when you’re completely nude, we’ll offer you just fig leaves.

Dear John 03:34
Dear John, tell me where my sweetheart has gone. Oh dear John, tell me where my sweetheart has gone. She was laying on my bed; this is where I left her when I got away from home. Dear John, I think somebody stole my singing blonde. Oh dear John, I think someone stole my screaming blonde. She had a black pickguard on top and a beautiful bridge in the colour of chrome. She was the lover I worshiped I swear. Her hips would resonate when I touched her long neck. The bluesy sound of her voice was truly rare. Can you recall the curls and the patterns on her skin? Can you recall the flashes and sparkles when the light came in? She could even get real “dirty” when I plugged her into my legendary Twin. She was my lover and I’m in despair. Her hips would resonate when I touched her with care. And now I’m left with this tzouras, that I can’t even bear. Dear John, tell me why my beauty has gone. Oh dear John, tell me why my beauty has gone. You could never know this answer, but it’s too soon for me to move on. You could never know this answer, but it’s too soon for me to move on. If you ever know just spell it out, cause it’s too hard for me to move on.

I'm standing by the window Tightly hugging my pillow When I'm noticing the cloud Covering the city, seems so proud "You are welcome in this city, Don't go away, it's a pity, if you leave without walking down the streets." Wishy-washy rain Wishy-washy rain You're on the way. Suddenly the rain starts Raindrops are falling darts Targeting the grey streets Like music's stronger beats. "What's the rush, you seem busy, Working hard to clean this city, And the darkness that's surrounding our hearts." Wishy-washy rain Wishy-washy rain Don't go away. The room without her is empty I feel her aura and I get sweaty "Come here wish-washy rain, Come by and wash away my pain. Come by and clean my soul..." Wishy-washy rain Wishy-washy rain Wash my pain away.

You’re the spooky girl in my dreams, I want to help you. You’re the spooky girl in my dreams, I want to protect you. You’re the spooky girl in my dreams… You’re the spooky girl in my dreams, I’m trying to help you. You’re the spooky girl in my dreams, I’ll try to protect you. You’re the spooky girl in my dreams, I have to find out why I see you in my hell, so soft and shy I crawl every night under my covers pile That’s the part that I’m missing a basic component of my awkward smile, that I wear in this trial In this restless moment Cause I’m afraid to sleep Cause I’m afraid to sleep, without holding you in my arms Cause I’m afraid to sleep, without feeling your breath in my ears You’re the spooky girl in my dreams, shivering in the corner. You’re the spooky girl in my dreams, is this a brain disorder? You’re the paper doll in my dreams, that resists to cry So fragile, with the fear of never drying I crawl every night, in the abyss of your mind playing on piano the notes of a creepy theme I’m a shadow of your life that I want you to find in your restless dream Cause I’m afraid to sleep Cause I’m afraid to sleep, without resting in your arms Cause I’m afraid to sleep, not feeling your chest in my ear I’m the spooky girl in your dreams, you want to help me. I’m the spooky girl in your dreams, you wanna protect me. I’m the spooky girl in your dreams…

I Lost Her 06:26
Remember the moments that we spent together We used to make love like complete strangers Dark curtains prevented our romantic shelter As we were hiding from our minds’ intruders Remember the time we really had to fight I used to hug you and sweep your burning tears Until the clouds melt and let free the sunlight Now I feel pure loneliness under our bed’s covers (Wondering) Is our conviction strong enough? It’s really becoming hard to overcome And I lost her, I lost her, I lost the way I could look at her eyes And I lost her, I lost her, we are separate souls under different skies God I lost her, I lost her, I need to find a way to win her back God I lost her, I lost her, but I’ll find the beat to her broken heart Cannot imagine these days without her I’m paddling the river of my own tears Zeus demonstrating his superior power I need to hold her and tenderly whisper in her ear Is our story going to wear out? Is our candle going to burn out? And I lost her, I lost her, I lost the way I could look at her eyes And I lost her, I lost her, we are separate souls under different skies God I lost her, I lost her, I need to find a way to win her back God I lost her, I lost her, but I’ll find the beat to her broken heart And I lost her, I lost her, I lost the way I could look at her eyes And I lost her, I lost her, we are separate souls under different skies God I lost her, I lost her, I need to find a way to win her back God I lost her, I lost her, but I’ll find the beat to her broken heart.
