CARRY ME HOME

 

Carry me home, carry me home

I’m lost on a gravel road

Carry me home, carry me home

Help me carry my load

One step further and my heart will stumble

And fall in the dead of the night

I don’t know how to walk straight on the line

 

Carry me home, carry me home

I’ve got the blues running in my veins

Carry me home, carry me home

‘got demons in my head

Dancing hand in hand in a vicious circle

Throwing out my worst fears

I don’t know where’s the child I used to be

 

Carry me home, carry me home

Who’s the one yelling at your door

Carry me home, carry me home

Who’s the one who’s slapping your soul

And getting in your brain like a killer poison

Infecting your own roots

I don’t know, this ain’t what I meant for you

 

Carry me home, carry me home

You’re the one who knows my soul

Carry me home, carry me home

I’m waiting for your call

You say that life flows like a river

And follows the beat of your heart

Now I’ll know where’s the road for you and me

 

REVERIE

 

Can I take you to the riverside
With all the flowers in bloom
Where the wind is singing in the trees
And the green grass is a bed for me and you
 

Can I take you to the fairyland
Make you forget about time
Lovers simply walking hand in hand
Without worries on their minds

 

Let’s get lost in endless reverie
All the stars are looking down on us
For a moment there is only you and me

 

Can I take you to the holy grounds

Dance on the Rhythm of the Saints

Our fingers reaching for the sun
Our hearts beating as one

 

Let’s get lost in endless reverie
All the stars are looking down on us
For a moment there is only you and me

 

A BETTER PLACE

 

The sky is stellar blue
But my mind is feeling grey
Looking at the three of you
I wonder what I’ll say
When the time will come
That you will look me in the eye
And ask me if and when
I truly did something to try

 

Please forgive me if you find
Somewhere down the line
We didn’t do the best we could
We were fools, we were blind
They told us on the radio
They told us on the news
No more hide and seek
No more fleeing from the truth

 

Let me see the colors of the world
Through your eyes
Let me feel the innocence
And the joy through your smile
Let me have your faith
To believe in fairy tales
Believe it’s not too late
To make this world
A better place

 

I WON'T TRY

 

Dear Mum and Dad

It grieves me to see you in such a pain

Why don’t you just try to understand

Each other’s heart

 

Dear Mum and Dad

Do you need to blame the other one

Tell me what’s the point of being right

How does it feel ?

 

You bury all the troubles

Doing the best to deny

Do you leave the flower fading

Make up your mind

 

Dear Mum and Dad

You told us we’re so lucky where we are

“Do not squabble, boy, no do not cry”

Speak for yourself

 

Dear Mum and Dad

I don’t want to drag your pain no more

I won’t think of who I’m choosing for

So let it go

 

You bury all the troubles

Doing the best to deny

Do you leave the flower fading

Make up your mind

 

Go and dig into your feelings,

cause you’re running out of time

‘til the last day that you’re breathing,

‘til the day that you will die

Make up your mind

 

Dear Mum and Dad

Maybe all the leaves have fallen down

I’m not the one to make you carry on

And I won’t try

 

ANOTHER MAN

 

Every morning I’ll be hoping

Can I become the one I want

Or am I fated to be different

Not to be another man

Another man

 

But during daytime I keep wondering

About the perfect action plan

In the meanwhile her sweet laughter

Is for another man

Another man

 

In my dreams I make her smile

I see a fire in her eyes

And all the barricades are burning

I believe that I can be

Another man

 

And every evening I’ll be waiting

For the moon to bring me to my dreams

And in the secret of the darkness

I’m strong and I’m her man

Another man

 

In my dreams I make her smile

I see a fire in her eyes

And all the barricades are burning

I believe that I can be

Believe that I will be

Another man

 

ETERNAL MORNING

 

Let’s be a man and face the fact

I cheated on my girl and I can’t go back

I want to rewind the reality

And knock on my sleepy face

And get back on the ground

 

Eternal morning here you are

With your weariness and all your fuzzy plans

The sun gets high, the day goes by

I’m riding in a dream that don’t make sense

 

Eternal morning here you are

Is it that hard to push me out of bed

I should get out and take a walk

Arrange and rearrange the mess I’ve made

 

The clock is running late

It’s time for a brand new day

The clock is running late

The little voice in my head

Time to get up

 

Eternal morning here I go

One more minute in my lazy thoughts

Forget last night and get up now

I’ll buy some flowers to fix it anyhow

 

The clock is running late

It’s time for a brand new day

The clock is running late

The little voice in my head

Time to get up

 

Let’s be a man and face the fact

I cheated on my girl and I can’t go back

I want to rewind the reality

And knock on my sleepy face

And get back on the ground

 

Eternal morning here you are

The day is done and I’m still so weary

I don’t have the guts to tell you today

So maybe I’ll confess

Some other day

 

ON EACH OTHER'S SIDE

 

There are bridges we will never cross

There are worlds we’ll never know

There are words that we will never say

There are lips we’ll never kiss

 

There are troubles we will never make

There are games we’ll never play

There are souls that we will never save

There are wounds we’ll never heal

 

My sweet darling

We’re so lucky where we are

Right here and right now

My sweet darling

We’re so lucky we are fine

On each other’s side

 

There are burdens we will never bear

There are wars we’ll never flee

There are risks that we will never take

For as long as we don’t bleed

 

My sweet darling

We’re so lucky where we are

Right here and right now

My sweet darling

We’re so lucky we are fine

On each other’s side

 

CHILDHOOD DREAMS

 

Please wake up now you’re 31 it’s time to use your brain

Are you sitting in the right seat, on the right train

You should follow your true passions, the faith you used to have

‘cause nothing can replace your childhood dreams

 

It’s 2 am in the Pool and I’m thinking about the future

You know I want you to be happy and I want you to be true

Do you remember your low cost travels, nature was so pure

Maybe it’s time for you to go and to live your childhood dreams

 

Are you stuck in your groove

Well you have to change it now

‘cause every little second will be wasted

Please don’t ask yourself how, do it now, you’ll break free

‘cause nothing can replace your childhood dreams

 

Now you might feel comfy in your massive leather chair

But have you seen those Yellow Stones, can you still breathe in the air

Do you get it now, go grab your bag and take a hike in the wild side

You know you’re still young, man, you can trust your childhood dreams

 

Are you stuck in your groove

Well you have to change it now

‘cause every little second will be wasted

Please don’t ask yourself how, do it now, you’ll break free

‘cause nothing can replace

Nothing can replace

Nothing can replace your childhood dreams

 

RED LODGE

 

Nothing can stop me now, I’m sailing away

No more dead end, nothing to let me pretend

My thoughts are leaving, I’m crossing the stormy sea

I’m done with hard times, now I can breathe

 

I told my boss, that I’m moving out to the west

That nothing is worse than a chair and a desk

He told me I’m wrong, that I am only a dreamer

You should go back to work, here’s your future

 

But what if I fail, that I am not strong enough

I would lose my girl, would be nothing but lost

But who can live with broken idea

Nothing but regret, comfort and luxury

 

But I want to break this chain

Holding back my brain

I want to go where the waves are rolling

And the wind is singing in my ears

 

Nothing is worse than a chair and a desk

 

BACK IN THE MIDDLE

 

Come right here as I love you

Lay your fears in my arms

Let’s come back in the middle

Be together again

 

Stand up from your sorrows

Feel the warmth of my skin

I’ll be here to comfort you

Wipe away your tears

 

Let me tell you a story

Fairy tales for awhile

I am willing to do anything

Just to bring back your smile
