Lyrics


1. Remember Me

please remember me
don`t forget my name
leave a candle burning
carry on my flame
will you sing my songs
when my voice no longer speaks
carry me on within your memories
remember me
remember me

will i leave a trace
in a corner of your mind
will you see my face
in the flowers that you find
when i´m a drop of rain
within the endless sea
will you keep me safe
in your heart and in your dreams
remember me
remember me

2. Faithful Friend

my faithful friend where did you go
i think i forgot to let you know
that i am grateful for all those nights
when we talked about nothing until the morning light
loosing track of time
you could read my mind

my faithful friend where have you been
what have you done, what have you seen
did you meet someone special, have you settled down
while i have been running from town to town
living in my own bubble
minding my own troubles

thinking about you
thinking about you

oh my faithful friend
when will i see you again

thinking about you
(the lights are out in my hotel room)
thinking about you
(do you even know that i am missing you)

my faithful friend i miss you so
i think i forgot to let you know

3. Bridges

some bridges are made of marble
you follow traces laid out for you
some bridges are leaps of faith
you have to find your own way across the water

into your lover´s arms
where nothing will do you no harm
bridges from the heart
never keep us apart

when bridges burn to ashes
there is no easy way out of the smoke
up on a tightrope you never look down
you have to walk the line on your own

nothing to hold on to
no one will carry you
when you’re in the wilderness
when you’re lost in the wilderness

into your lover´s arms
nothing will do you no harm
bridges from the heart
never keep us apart

into your lover´s arms
nothing will do you no harm
you’re safe and you´re warm
when you’re in your lover´s arms

4. Tides

seven moonlit tears i cried
tides collided in my eyes
waves can wound a moonlit shore
but they can’t hurt me anymore

tangled in my mother’s hair
currents combed my bones bare
her currents swirled through my ribs
spinning seaweed to selkie skin

ashore i dance the sacred night
a surging wave of pale moonlight
a seal-spun daughter of the tides
never again a captive bride

5. On My Way To Somewhere

i´m on my way to somewhere
i don’t know where
i´m on my way to somewhere
i don’t know how far
maybe i´ll come running
maybe i will take it slow
what ever makes me happy
that´s what i´ll be looking for

on my way to somewhere
i have been walking for so long
on my way to somewhere
this journey´s just begun
still so many miles to go
so many mistakes to be made
so many things i´d like to know
i´m always on my way

6. Morning Song

last night i crawled into bed
with the darkest thoughts in my head
could not find peace of mind
the night was long and so unkind

morning has finally come
all my worries are undone
wounded, but stronger than before
morning clears the sky once more

yesterday´s pain and misery
i wont let it get a hold of me
i´m one with my sorrow, we walk hand in hand
but it´s not who i am, it´s not who i am

morning has finally come
shadows vanish in the sun
a new beginning, now i´m sure
morning clears the sky once more

last night i crawled into bed
with the darkest thoughts in my head
sometimes my clouded mind holds me down
but it´s not who i am, it´s not who i am

morning has finally come
all my worries are undone
wounded, but stronger than before
morning clears the sky once more

morning has finally come
shadows vanish in the sun
a new beginning, now i´m sure
morning clears the sky once more
i don´t ask for more
i don´t ask for more

7. Purple Flowers

mama, mama
how are you feeling today
did the pain go away
i know, i know
that gray skies have loomed
like shadows over you

how are you feeling today
how are you feeling today

mama, mama
soon i´ll be coming home
and you won´t be alone
purple flowers
i will bring to you
to decorate the room

how are you feeling today
how are you feeling today

mama mama
i can be your friend
i´ll paint the wall´s colorful again
and if you´re crying,
you don´t have to hide it, i will understand

how are you feeling today
how are you feeling today
how are you feeling today
how are you feeling today

8. The Swing

down by the lake there is a swing in a tree
there is the hideout you made for me
come with me sweetheart the night is a fair
let´s soar in the moonlight, arms in the air
we swing on the swing, wind in our hair

down by the lake, there is a swing in a tree
up through the leaves, there´s so much to see
my hand in yours –  a promise we made
a roundabout romance, a popcorn parade
come back, take me back, down to the lake

there’s a ferris wheel, it shines, so bright, a carnival of light
your laughter is a dance, from low, to high, this never ending night.

down by the lake there is a swing in a tree
gone is the hideout you made for me
ice on the water, stars in the sky
summer and winter, a kiss and a sigh
spring is a memory of love passing by

there’s a ferris wheel, it shines, so bright, a carnival of light
your laughter is a dance, from low, to high, this never ending night.

9. Stories

there are stories
that should never be told
even if they speak the truth
i wish i never knew

there are words you should never have said
you cannot take them back
you didn’t even think them through
how i wish i never knew

keep it to yourself
take it somewhere else
don´t make me feel this way
when there´s nothing of good use in the words you say

there are stories
that should never be told
they leave me feeling sad and blue
i wish i never knew
