I have to tell you This is an ode to life This is an ode to love This is an ode that birds can sing above. The winter is past, And flowers appear on Earth The rains are over and gone Scream as loud as you can the season of singing has come. You told me that And I understand at last I should love myself, too ’Cause the more I do the more love I can give to you. As my soul lies down peacefully in the grass Breathe in the air and breathe out I’m happy as I am The world’s too full to talk about. I am who I am, I am life, I am love Let’s dive into what’s above. I am full, I am overwhelmed with this bliss, What sort of love is this? My heart, don’t hide your fires It’s time to awaken love What more can man desire?

Mayfly Song 03:23
Look at the Sun, Look how it runs It bounces from east to west to its’ rest with pure joy in the sea Big rainbows stick on its’ underfeet. Look at the Sun, It has found the one, It takes off winter, the snow-white bridal veil from Spring Gives to her the evergreen wedding ring. I wish we were mayflies I wish we were mayflies Our whole life would be a carefree nuptial, a day we spend in love While the blonde Sun laughs at us from above. I've seen in your eyes our kiss from the dawning Till the end of the day then we greet the new morning. Our soft bodies burst into flames then flowers In these lovely daybreak hours. And as you lay calm on my chest My fingers are fondling your breast. As you lay calm on my chest I know that you’re the one the best

I remember when I was the wind And blew away your dandelion dress The sun laughed at your angel wings And I touched your brown curly tress That was pure happiness, I guess. Freckle flowers blossomed on your face And I tasted your strawberry tounge In your embrace I found the perfect place Between ease and adulthood we swung And heaven was on the next rung. Everything was ours Our fragile minds were in trance I told her how I love her In God’s orchard we danced Barefoot between the flowers.

Lady Macbeth 04:02
Oh, those days, oh those days won’t come back ‘cause your mother’s tounge’s around your neck It chokes you dear, it softly chokes you And it shows you the wrong view She poured her black spirit in your ears Her poisonous words darkened your mind I’m not like your father, I’m not a beast Darling, you can’t be so blind And now, I can see why you flee But it isn’t me, the enemy I’ll scream until time grows a thick bark on my soul Who could give us back the love that your mother once stole What should I do with my growing rage My wrath’s swelling since our love is gone And you did not only loose who I am now But also who I will become But it isn’t me, the enemy

Light Trap 03:28
Lyrics: For her I would fly the mountains over But she wears other guys’ pullovers. I’m a bird stuck in a light trap She derides my embittered flaps. Who’s brave enough to leave the spark? Who dares to fly into the dark To the endless emptiness, To the vacancy? I am under her spell, I adore her bloom But every flutter ruffles my plume. Drag me out of this gloom. Birds like plaster fall from the vault Got used to the shine, it is my fault I fly but I can’t halt. I can’t let go but I don’t want to This freedom’s a lie but I love you And you’ll never love me, too. For her I would fly the mountains over But she wears other guys’ pullovers.

The leaves whisper autumn On this lonely night in Pest This kind of love I found Oh, I hate and I detest I’m sitting on a quay And waiting for grace I’m the Danube now With flotsam on my surface Those orange nights in Pest When I can’t rest And I let all of my feelings float away Both the worst and the best Those orange nights in Pest With weight on my chest Solitude, you’re with me in the end We salute as old friends We salute as old friends The rain is stuttering On the closed windows My feelings are whirling Like the leaf that the cold wind blows And I ask the waves To wash the pain out of my heart We both know my darling That we should not be apart. Those orange nights in Pest When I can’t rest And I let all of my feelings float away Both the worst and the best Those orange nights in Pest With weight on my chest Solitude, you’re with me in the end We salute as old friends We salute as old friends

Rust 03:22
You, you were the ground on Which Jesus spit And put it gently with his rough hands On my closed eyelids You were the saint Who showed me grace I could wash my face in you But also on my faith You were the rust You were the rust, you were the rust On my Scripture you were the dust You were the loss You were the loss, you were the loss That cut my beating heart across You were the crowned You were the wit You were the pillar of fire that made the dark night lit You were the truth That must be told My soul is a white shirt but please unbutton it oh, Lord I was the rust, I was the rust, I was the rust On the nail that hung you on the cross You were the loss You were the loss, you were the loss That cut my beating heart across You were the loss You were the loss, you were the loss That cut my beating heart across You were the lust You were the lust, you were the lust For me when life was just a must

Elevator 03:41
You can call it anything, but that was love When we were happy just because we shared the blanket. You can call it what you want You can call it anything, but that was love. That was pure Love. Elevator rides were always awkward only For those around us, who felt desperately lonely. Now I see the closing doors, I feel awkward and count the floors. You can call it anything, but that was love When we were happy just because we shared our prayers. You can call it what you want You can call it anything, but that was love. That was pure Love. When we spent the cold winter in love In your pocket you had your gloves But our hands always merged in mine Nothing’s left, but the cruel torment of time. I showed you what is love, You threw it away, you threw it away. I can’t change your stubborn heart, You push me away, you push me away. You floated too far away, You won’t come home, you won’t come home. I hope that you’re still okay, But you’re alone, you are alone.
9.
Serenade 02:53
If you still love me, Maybe you will like this serenade. You know I am the lover For whom to God you have always prayed. If you still love me Why did you let me sing in the dark I know you could hear me I’m louder than the neighbour’s dog’s bark I wish you’d come to me And I want you to fall on me like rain You’re a white daffodil And I know that water runs through your veins. Why did you beat down the stars With courtains from your window?
10.
You pass by me and see You’re a lot like me You see me lying in my blood I’m not old enough for love I pass by you and see You’re a lot like me The day you were born your cord wasn’t cut You’re not old enough for love Love’s just stumbling between colours Love’s just stumbling between colours You pass by me and see You’re a lot like me You see us whirling high above We’re now old enough for love
11.
I breathe on your heart of glass I know how fragile it is I press my nose softly to the glaze And write with my fingers in the haze That you’re safe in my arms (Riddle the wrath out of your heart) That my embrace is warm (Believe me there’s a better part) Darling, our love is enough to fill in the holes When you’ll feel cold I’ll blanket you with my soul I look at your wounded heart Only time will heal the pain You’re afraid of a fresh start Where you’ll be loved, and you’ll love again But you’re safe in my arms (Riddle the wrath out of your heart) And my embrace is warm (Believe me there’s a better part) Darling, our love is enough to fill in the holes When you’ll feel cold I’ll blanket you with my soul You’re safe in my arms My embrace is warm There is no harm There is no thorn.
