LYRICS

Along the Way

When I feel the lightning
wanna strike me today
and rains of confusion
are coming my way

I will be running
find a place to hide
on the slippery roads
I try to stride

I gotta keep on going
along the way
I gotta keep on running
and catch a lightning ray

And I see a shelter
for the thunder and rain
but when I’m getting closer
I feel linked to a chain

And I start to wonder
what’s this all about
am I alone here
yet chained to the crowd?

And all things down
are they like above?
I know… I am
I guess that’s enough

I gotta keep on going
along the way
I gotta keep on running
and catch a lightning ray

run boy run
run boy run
run boy run
catch a lightning ray…


Troubadour Electrique

I don’t know why
I’m feeling this way
a burning lust
to come out and play
the music flows
and the melody grows
the troubadour ‘s alba
at the dawn of day

When a cool breeze
calls the sun to rise,
I sense the air
of Paradise
Timeless words
the troubadour wrote
while he sang his songs
of love devote

Under your spell
Heaven and hell
Down in the well
Rising in swell

When the night departs
from the morning gate
Can you still recall
the serenade
the troubadour sang
while the night began
now the melody lingers
a twist of fate

Under your spell
Heaven and hell
Down in the well
Rising in swell


Through the Looking glass

And in the silence of the night
I keep on staring through the looking glass
and you shine so bright
in a wonderland….

———————–

Save a prayer for the world

save a prayer for the sea
save a prayer for the tree
save a prayer for the bee
save a prayer for you
save a prayer for me
save a prayer for we, the people

Save a prayer for the greedy
who think a soul is made of dollars
Save a prayer for the violent
who think God is a gun
Save a prayer for the people
who think freedom is a wall

save a prayer for the world

save a prayer for the sea
save a prayer for the tree
save a prayer for the bee
save a prayer for you
save a prayer for me
save a prayer for we, the people
———————————–

Down the River

From the source to the sea
the river flows, perpetually

The eternal shores that smell of desire
on which I’ll be washed again and again
From darker skies into brighter heavens
Real poems never end…

Take my hand for a walk
on the paths that seem unknown
cause I’m floating down the river
bound to drown into the sea

Fade Away (Dark end of the day)

Will you ever go down
into the town
where the angels
would kneel down and cry
and tell the stories of the great wonder why

The angel said:
When you walk
on the road of life
you can see tears rolling by
you feel sorrow
and you feel joy

Thousand mountains you climb
never reaching your aim
you’re waiting for something
for something that won’t come

Black waves of raging water
will throw you ashore
and the hazy dew of newer mornings
will call out for more

like a torch you will light up
for a while you’ll glow
but you fade, fade away
into the dark end of the day

Ice Queen

When the Ice Queen walked into town
wearing a snow-white velvet gown
when the sun, lightened her face
my eyes were blinded by beauty and grace

From one day i go into the next I fly
whirlwinds taking me into the sky
and nothing else matters any more
when snowstorms howling at my door

When I opened my eyes again
the day looked brighter than ever when
there was nothing more I could do
cause I knew the enchantment was true

From one day i go into the next I fly
whirlwinds taking me into the sky
and nothing else matters any more
when snowstorms spin me into the core

When the Ice Queen took over the land
I felt her breathing on my frozen hand
and all of a sudden, I heard a voice
Music Man you’ve got a choice

In my snow land you may always dwell
but play your music or I break the spell
and I’ll be the muse you have felt
so play the music and I never melt

Wonderland (through the looking glass)

In the silence of the night
I keep on staring through the looking glass
and you shine so bright
in a wonderland

I feel my heart
beat like crazy
when you’re passing by

your eyes
take my breath
and make me feel so high

and in the silence of the night
I keep on staring through the looking glass
and you shine so bright
in a wonderland

prayer

Prayer

Save a prayer for the world
Save a prayer for the greedy
who think a soul is made of dollars.

Save a prayer for the violent
who think god is a gun.
Save a prayer for the people
who think freedom is a wall

Save a prayer for the sea.
Save a prayer for the tree.
Save a prayer for the bee

Save a prayer for you
Save a prayer for me
Save a prayer for we the people…

ocean of love

The Ocean of Love

When she smiles
from her golden lips
a drop of honey
slowly drips
into the reign
of a sudden whim
you find yourself
on a limb

It will take your breath away
steal your night and day
through the caves of mystery
you swim ….
into the ocean of love

and while a crazy beat
conquers your heart
a burning heat
will tear you apart

and you will dive
into the sea
and you will love
what you see

It will take your breath away
steal your night and day
through the caves of mystery
you swim ….
into the ocean of love

Lullaby for early morning hunters

Let me crouch over you
and watch you sleep my love
Let me lay down beside
and hold you tight

Let me hear you breathing
and your heart beating
Lay my hands on your hips
Seal a kiss on your lips

Young is the night
I’ve got time on my side
Cause you will stay,
Till the light of day

A lullaby for early morning hunters …

Move it up, Shake it down

We gonna move it all up
shake it all down
we gonna jump together
with our feet off the ground

and we fly in the air
like we just don’t care
leave our troubles behind
and gonna make love tonight

behind the door

Behind the Door

Behind the door
there is something more
things left behind
things still to find
Behind the door
