Lyrics

 

HAZEL BLUE 

Pack your car and bring the bird cage
while sky is hazel blue.
Start the engine, hit the gas
while you still see the truth.
Today the road is wide and clear all day long 

The asphalt burns in the sun
under sky so hazel blue.
Your parrot talks and crickets chirp
the chances are so few.
Today’s the only day you´ve got. 

Ooooh open all the windows
and let it just go.
Ooooh on its fragile wings it goes away
let the air take you. 

And off it goes into the sky
where clouds are beckoning.
You are left both sad and glad
how to reconcile?
You fear it cannot handle
being free. 

Open all the windows
and let it just go. 

Oh on its fragile wings it goes, it goes
let the air take you. 

Stop your car and put into neutral
under hazel sky.
Adjust the mirrors, take a deep breath
it’s your turn to try.
It´s time to empty your own cage 

Oh open all the windows
and let yourself go.
Oh with your fragile wings you go, you go
let the air take you. 

  

ICY WIND 

Oh Icy Wind
you talk to me
You wake me up
On a day like this
I’m not afraid of you
I’m not afraid of you 

  

WAIT 

The world is changing fast
wonder where it´s going.
With an ever-growing need
for speed technology. 

Could we possibly
be growing more distant?
Talking face-to-face doesn´t
give the same efficiency… same efficiency 

But can we wait
and feel the breath 

If we take the time
to see what´s available.
We could go sailing down that river
and forget the time. 

Diving deep into the water
with no name.
Loosing track of day and night
wouldn’t matter so much. 

He’s a 3D person delusional
she will loose herself if the network goes down.
He’s traveled the world on Google Earth
no need for a passport anymore. 

The line between
the real and the unreal,
it’s like a wafer thin veil
that could disappear. 

Or is it maybe all just
Illusion anyway?
And life is just reflection
in the skyline… in the skyline… 

But can we wait
just be here…
Just feel the breath
just be here…
But can we wait
and just be here… ?
Just feel the breath
just be here… just be here… just be here… 

He’s a 3D person delusional
she will loose herself if the network goes down.
He’s traveled the world on Google Earth
no need for a passport anymore 

 

 

 

SHAKING 

You shake me when I’m up
You shake me when I’m down
You shake me when I sleep
When I’m awake. 

The world is a curious place 24/7
Catch me in that zone
and you’ll be shaking too. 

Life is running through
like a river to sea
Do you know where you’re heading?
Have you found that love? 

I feel I’m expanding out
Like a deep, deep breath
We’re heading for the same
And yet so different 

You can find it in the jungles
in the pumping cities
In the holy houses
the darkest gutter 

Life is running through
like a river to sea
Do you know where you’re heading?
Have you found that love? 

Life is running through
like a river to the sea
I don’t know why you’re waiting
when it’s shaking you now. 

It’s in your blood
It’s in your deepest bones
it’s the thing that creates us,
the thing that makes us one 

You can find it in the jungles
in the pumping cities
In the holy houses
in the darkest gutter 

Life is running through
like a river to to sea
Do you know where you’re heading?
Have you found that love? 

Life is running through
like a river to sea
I don’t know why you’re waiting
when it’s shaking you now. 

  

WHERE THE CRICKETS SING 

The evening has a gentle scent
lingering like a spell.
My thoughts are out there like a wave
pulsing in that Southern swell. 

We sleep under the desert sky
stunned by the big blue moon.
Your prayer like a precious stone,
We carry over this dune. 

When I´m thirsty
I´ll think of the lake
and the melting snow
I´ll pour it in my glass
and drink it slow… drink it slow 

Your lips are dry but you´re voice is strong
your songs they fly you straight back home.
But soon the rays of sun will rise
we must move on and close this tome. 

When I´m thirsty,
I´ll think of the lake
and the melting snow
I´ll pour it in my glass
and drink it slow… drink it slow 

Far away the crickets sing,
the sound is calling us west.
In my mind time melts away
and soon we´ll end this quest. 

When the crickets sing
I think of the lake and the summer breeze
The grass is growing
and life at ease… life at ease. 

Oh so glad to see some green
reaching into desert sand.
The southern swell is rising up
right here, right where we stand. 

 

 

 

DRAGON FLY 

Uncatchable in the wind,
a hollow dream
my hands are reaching for nothing.
Somewhere in a pause of missing breath
a dragon fly is taking off. 

In that moment
I´m pulled beneath the wave,
ground in the sand.
A glimpsing a thought
“I´m dying”…, “I´m dying”…, “dying”…, “I´m dying”… 

Then the ascent and that
desperate breath. 

If only I could catch a fleeting dragon fly
stretch out it´s wings
grasp the colors,
remember them, remember them
and let go. 

Beneath the world and above oblivion
Between the future and the end
Out of reach the dragon fly
lights away in the air. 

If only I could catch a fleeting dragon fly
stretch out it´s wings
grasp the colors,
remember them, remember them
and let go. 

One breath and I´m under again. 

  

WORDS AND DEEDS 

Raise your voice
so we can hear you.
Touch the world
with real words.
Time will tell what you have reaped
Words and deeds. 

Your words
become like
precious gold.
Shining through
day and night
like a fire 

It echoes through the day
resonates through the years
A rock into the pond
that roars the ocean into waves. 

Ring the bell
so we can hear it.
Touch the world
with deeds that do.
Time will show what you´ve created
words and deeds. 

It echoes through the day
resonates through the years
A drop ripples the surface
and roars the ocean into waves. 

  

THE ESSENCE 

Her hands are deep in the soil
Carefully she weighs the rocks
200 meters to go
to find the essence
to find the essence of it all 

Ooh it´s like dream calling you
Ooh it´s like a wish that will come true
Ooh it´ls like love that will never, never end 

Digging tunnels underground
to discover the other side
100 meters to go
to find the essence
to find the essence of it all 

It´s like dream calling you
it´s like a wish that will come true
it´ls like love that will never, never end 

At the end you know the answer
What is there is also here
Zero meters to go
to find the essence
to find the essence of it all 

 

 

 

STITCHING TIME 

If I could
see out through your rheumy eyes
I would see
your mother spinning scratchy yarn 

1, 2,
then 20
3, 4
a stitch in time
oh it is so naked
to be alive! 

Threading through
all these parting paths
your smile let’s me
know that I´ll be fine 

1, 2,
then 20
3, 4
the days go by
oh the mystery
to be alive! 

You always conjured
lights and colors
to kindle sights unseen… always 

1, 2,
then 20
3, 4
the months go by
oh the challenge
to be alive! 

Weaving through
the driven snow
there she is
Counting stitches
Counting time 

1, 2,
then 20
3, 4
the years go by
oh the delight
to be alive! 

Moody clouds above –
curdle the sky
just as yesterday
or 30 years gone by
the story is the same… the same… the same… the same… the same… 

If I could
see out through your rheumy eyes
You always conjured
lights and colors 

  

ROLLING DOWN 

He’s rolling, rolling down
He’s rolling down…
