Track Name: singin' ohlalala
I’ve known you for so many years, ‘til now
This makes it hard for me to bear
Supported you whenever I could
Gave me strength and fulfillment too
By the time I get old I wanna be bright
I don’t wanna realize that I’ve never tried

This means to tell my truth, uncolored
You’re still my friend in some ways
By the time I get old I wanna be wise
I don’t wanna realize that I’ve never tried
I’m singin’ ohlalala for the times we’ve spent
I’m singin’ ohlalala for the times we’ve spent

It’s not that I don’t wanna talk, but my words are not safe in your heart
It’s not that I don’t wanna feel, cause It’s the only thing that makes us
real
By the time I get old I wanna be a bit more grounded
I don’t wanna realize that I’ve never tried

I’m singin’ ohlalala for the times we’ve spent
I’m singin’ ohlalala for the times we’ve spent
I’m singin’ ohlalala for the times we’ve spent
I’m singin’ ohlalala for the times we’ve spent
Track Name: contact
I haven’t been talking to you for years now
Somehow I just forgot
Tell me how long have you been waiting?
Did you ever try to wake me up?
I remember sitting around a fireplace
Felt like being embraced by the whole worlds grace
The air was drunk and free I felt it coming down on me
Today I remember it all, everything I once called my own little world
And when I grow old don’t wanna be bones and not be heard

I haven’t been playing with you for ages
Somehow I just forgot
How much I enjoyed running
Barefoot in the grass
I remember sitting around a fireplace
Felt like being embraced by the whole worlds grace
The air was drunk and free I felt it coming down on me
Today I remember it all, everything I once called my own little world
And when I grow old don’t wanna be bones and not be heard
Track Name: thank u
Now that I came close to you and kissed you to the core
I know I’m not into what you want me for
I’m not into what you want me for
Now that you came close to me, whispered in my ear
I feel it’s not what I want to hear
It’s not what I want to hear
Now that you wrote to me, in sweet devoted notes
Everything’s o.k. I thank you for who I’ve become
For everything, for everything that lies within
I see it’s not what you want me to read
It’s not what you want me to read

Now as I write these words and read them over once more
I realize that maybe you are a gift to my core
Everything’s o.k. I thank you for who I’ve become
For everything, for everything that lies within
Everything’s o.k. I thank you for who I’ve become
For everything, for everything that lies within
Everything’s o.k. I thank you for who I’ve become
For everything, for everything that lies within
Everything’s o.k. I thank you for who I’ve become
For everything, for everything that lies within.
Track Name: soliloquy
I sat in silence and listened to what I could relate
Me talking to myself, oh I couldn’t figure what weight
Was heavy on my shoulders squeezing in my lungs
For quite a time I must have been perfectly numb
Promises given were taken away over night
I’m not dependant on what you need to make this right
So tell me is there something I can relate to
Is there something I can relate to?

The beast screams out louder when you hit the right point
Tell me will you have the strength this time
Not to depend on what you usually need?
Then we will be walking together on that beast

Promises given were taken away over night
I’m not dependant on what you need to make this right
So tell me is there something I can relate to
Is there something I can relate to?
Promises given were taken away over night
I’m not dependant on what you need to make this right
So tell me is there something I can relate to
Is there something I can relate to?
When you’re not really trying to...
Track Name: balloon
Stop knocking I’m not coming down
I’m like a balloon drifting in the air, I’m sound
Stop knocking no I’m not coming down
I’m like a balloon floating in the air I’m grounded, now

I saw the darkness grow inside me a heart of stone, felt like an overdose
Time went too fast and I guess I walked too slow
But I’m catching up, I’m catching up right now

Stop knocking I’m not coming down
Until I see the perfect spot to put my feet back onto the ground
Stop knocking no I’m not coming down
I’m like a balloon, floating in the air I’m grounded, now

I nearly saw you die inside, it was like my heart was stabbed
Had no place I wanted to go
Time went too fast and I guess I walked to slow

Uh, I’m not coming down,
Until I see the perfect spot in my mind to put my feet back on to the ground
Uh, I’m not coming down,
Until I feel it’s the right place to put my feet back on to the ground

Oh, when I come down
People will say she came down with a chattering sound
Had her feet right back on the ground
Uh, when this is done,
My feet will put their roots back in this ground
You can be sure I’ll wear a big crown on my own ground
Call it whatever I want to call it whatever you want it to
Track Name: into your 4
I can’t imagine a better companion
For the first ride I had on this horse that was unknown to me
I felt at home with you deep inside my bones, where veins and heart
meet
Just protecting myself so it won’t take me over

Now I know, why I had to bang myself on the wall the other night
You reminded me how it should feel
Didn’t expect that it really exists
I felt at home with you deep inside my bones, where veins and heart
meet
Just protecting myself so it won’t take me over

It’s a rough storm before you reach the blizzards eye
They say what I felt is a biochemical reaction?
Maybe I’m just painting my world once more
That’s o.k! No I’m not afraid of life no more
As cummings said: “ Yes is a pleasant country”
No, I’m not afraid of life no more, I’m into your FOUR

A ride to hell is not what I’m aiming for, but if so
Hope it’s with you
Cause I felt at home with you deep inside my bones, where veins and
heart meet
Just protecting myself so it won’t take me over
Track Name: keeps burnin'
When the fire burns I’m back home
When it’s gone I’m off somewhere to a hidden place, I don’t know
I don’t know
But when the fire’s on I’m back home, I’m back home

I lit this candle a long time ago for a reason I didn’t know
Slowly I start to realize what for, slowly it opens the door
To secrets I longed for to answers I’d been searching for

So the future depends on what I do today, my present is shaped by what
I did and
I’m trying hard to keep up with all the answers you came up with.
So the future depends on what I do today, my present is shaped by what
I did and
I’m trying hard to keep up with all the answers you came up with.
Keep on, keep on, you voices in a universe that produced me
Breed, breed for no other purpose.
Take it to another extreme.
It’s you, you and me.
Track Name: my water
My Water runs fluently, silently
Runs down the drain if you fold your hands
My waters are deep (uninvestigated), but known to me
They reach secrets I didn’t expect (surprisingly)
My waters are to me, the biggest gift that I’ve received
They scare me and at the same time love me
My water is everything to me

My water gives monsters and heroes a home
Friends and enemies are known
Sometimes I lose myself in it, how many am I?
That’s the question I speak in silent evenings
My waters are colorful, unsurpassed and strong
They run silently, deep inside in strong streams
I never question them anymore

My water can be poison and love itself
Depending on what premises I serve
Still it’s so unknown to me
‘Cause deep and profound a stream is growing in me
I know it runs home without questioning time
Although my awareness grows, I hope every day
So maybe you can see, my waters run deeply
Don’t you judge me
‘Cause maybe your water runs through me.
Track Name: kings n' queens
We sat on a wooden square table
He asked me if I’d kiss him right now
And while our minds were connecting, I couldn’t hide
That something in that very moment wasn’t willing to try
In that very moment it didn’t feel right

Without a moment of silence, I asked what he was trying to find out
‘Cause something in me was sure, that in that very moment
He must have felt that a kiss, that a kiss, wasn’t what it was about
Wasn’t what it was about

He wrote me a message that he was sorry
‘Cause he thought that he talked too much
And that of course the next time we’d meet he’d listen more
‘Cause he was interested to know much more about me
And I wrote it was how it was, how it was, how it must have been

And I thought to myself, that maybe yes
He was not really listening that evening
That maybe I was not really opening deep down in my heart
While our minds were connecting and fishing out all the ideas and
fantasies, were kings and queens living in a castle far away from reality.
Track Name: on it n' off
The wind was blowing, I did not notice what mess I was in
It feel like falling, free falling,
somewhere in a cushion of snow at spring

Can’t remember what I thought, what I said
These days can’t remember what woman I was
Every time I fall, every time I fall a little bit smoother
Every time I fall, every time I fall a little bit smoother
Can’t remember what I thought, what I said
These days can’t remember what woman I was
I’m reaching out for what you would call a bend, a turn
A change, something healthy and real
Nothing’s gonna stop me, not even your policemen on a string

I’m on it, I’m on it, I’m on it and off, I’m gonna show my real stuff, what I
Got give,
Who I am, what I deserve

Every time I fall, every time I fall a little bit smoother
Every time I fall, every time I fall a little bit smoother
Track Name: ponyrun
When the sun shines I can hardly see through my eyes
When the wind blows I can hardly breathe through my nose
‘Cause this pony is no slowmo and that’s what it’s all about, this pony is
no slowmo and what it’s all about

I’ll ride this pony my whole life, it’s like flying over the earth
And gathering lost treasures, in places known only to myself

When the sun shines I can hardly see through my eyes
When the wind blows I can hardly breathe through my nose
‘Cause this pony is no slowmo and that’s what it’s all about, this pony is
no slowmo and what it’s all about

I see it all, it looks so great but there’s something unreal about it all
And I think to myself, oh sometimes I think
What if you’d find out, what if you’d find out
That on this pony I find the key, I find the key

‘Cause this pony is no slowmo and that’s what it’s all about, this pony is
no slowmo and that’s what it’s all about
‘Cause this pony is no slowmo and that’s what it’s all about, this pony is
no slowmo and that’s what it’s all about
