Darkspace

In the dark space
When I close my eyes
I see your face shining
Like the moon in the night
and I must tell you
From my heart
I’ve been waiting my time
My love,
all over the world
You’re with me, you’re with me, with me,
you’re with me, you’re with me
Where ever I go

Remember who you’re on the back of
riding through the human race
Crossing these rivers of memories
Girl, you’ve got sunshine on your face
You’re with me, you’re with me, with me,
you’re with me, you’re with me
Where ever I go

Time, time’s like a slow rising wave
Gathering, gathering up nights and days
and I feel, I feel
I’m at the moment when it breakes
Yes I feel
we’re at the moment when it breakes
You’re with me, you’re with me, with me,
you’re with me, you’re with me

riding through you every night
and in our window there is light

—————————————————————

Send Me An Angel

I must have kept a burning truth
Too fight against my heart
I looked out in that night for you
Looked out in that night
God and his son apart

And every dream is far too sweet
I let them all come down
I do not know we will meet
do not know that now
Before I’m coming home

Send me God
Send me an angel
Send me a sign
Send me God

And all these things my hands will touch
Outside the name of love
Out here where nothing is too much
And people pray in gloves

Send me

—————————————————————

There Are Many Ways To Die

Night across the harbour
Nightlight in the sky
I hear the sound of water
Boats are drifting by
I’ve been waiting here for centuries
I’ve lost my sense of time
My love, you should have warned me
There are many ways to die

Look at the moon – Cocoon

I’m deep inside this world now
Got to take a step aside
I’m deeper than I ever was
I must have crossed a line
She just stood there in my way
Now I see her all the time
Oh, girl – you should have told me
There are many ways to die

Look at the moon -Cocoon

This wind is blowing through me
It is nothing I can fight
Tomorrow I may lose her
Tonight she’s by my side
Her head upon my shoulder
Her angels speak with mine
She was sent me to remind me
There are many ways to die

Look at the moon – Cocoon

watching centuries go by

—————————————————————

With You – With Me

Can I see you for a moment
Can I sit with you a while
I know it’s late
But everything is late

All my life I’ve been a drifter
And that’s how you know me, too
I’ve never seen
Tomorrow’s view

All along I hear this song
That something else some day will come along
Late, but suddenly, I know what I must do
I didn’t see it coming
I didn’t know it was you

The days are high
And the nights are deep
and I can feel it moving in me
and nothing’s like it used to be
With you – with me

You may have seen me live my life
Sometimes I’ve lived for fun
It’s easy said…
Not so easy done

You may have watched me in the moonlight
Falling from the sky
Like every dreamer
Can go to high

And all along I hear this song
That something else one day will come along
Seamless night
To find you by my side
I didn’t see it coming
My ever drifting mind

The days are high…

Letter From Egypt

It’s a pity to disturb
What happens by itself
By greed and hunger
We won’t reach it any longer
You’re a fool to use force
When you walk through open doors
And see this night, perhaps it falls
Not for you and I at all
All these stars they would shine
Even if we both were blind
but something now is gonna come
We can live some day
Like if we’re gone
We won’t need much space
We won’t need much spare, then

So let me walk you down the street
Kicking leaves up with our feet
That’s not a sound for us to hear
but for the blind man over there
And it’s allright, baby it’s ok
Everyone is on their way
Have a look – around you
Everybody knows it’s getting late
Baby it’s ok
Everyone is far from home these days

My love, what can I say
Tomorrow’s always been
A very special day
And it’s allright baby
It’s ok
Have a look around you…

—————————————————————

A Name Is A Name

A name is a name
But your names in the night
Call on your sleep
Where your soul comes alight

I could be there by your side
I would walk and you could fly
I’m not counting these days
Where I’m taken aside

I’m not losing my pride
I just left it outside
Cause I can’t fight these waves
There’s an ocean behind

Thought I looked you in the eye
But you came up from behind
A name is a name
I know your names in the night

This could be the dream of the angels above
To fly on the wings of a woman in love

You could be here by my side
I would kneel and you could fly
I’m not counting these days
Where I’m taken aside

—————————————————————

Movies

My woman so lonely
My woman so fine
My flower, don’t worry
You will shine

A marriage, the secret
The shadows behind
Pianos are playing
Summertime

But as long as your hero’s in the movies
And the turtle is safe in the Carribean Sea
While the power of mations set the rules
Still I’ve got no one lying next to me

Red carpets, no windows
She longs to escape
Her secret against
Fairytales

But as long as your hero’s in the movies
And the turtle is safe in the Carribean Sea
While the power of nations make the rules
Still I’ve got no one lying next to me

Still there is no one lying next to me

—————————————————————

Shooting Star

Eyelids black, but blue behind
Will I ever see her shine
Touch the hunger in her skin
Touch that soul she’s kept within

Will I ever make her mine
Will I ever see her shine

Hey little girl, whoever you are
Flying like a shooting star
Who are these men that made you sad
Who’s your uncle, whou’s your dad

Clouds are moving through your past
Will these clouds forever last

Up like fire, down in rain
Run away, come back again
Shadows flicker in the past
On my skin you make them last

This little girl would learn so fast
this little girl could never ask

—————————————————————

Slanted Floor

Be my eyes
Paint colours bright
As day turns to night
Baby, be my eyes

Tell me, Dear
Was this freedom our share
Was the cost for all to bare
Tell me, Dear

Out here
We dance along the rim
Though non of us can swim
Like we know the deep we`re in
And I,
I feel like I felt before
We live on a slanted floor

And so
Tell me all the things we know
Is heaven still above

—————————————————————

Anyone

Anyone
Go tell my girl I’ve seen the tables turn before
Now there will be no one at the door
Go tell her not to keep the lights on
Anyone

To belong
The weaves of trust can make a man so strong
But, than you know, when a thread is gone …
Go tell her not to keep the light on
Anyone

It was for real
It was for real

Gone, gone
The wounds of life that used to be so strong
Now a track is deep where we went wrong
Go tell her now I’ll keep the light on
For anyone

It was for real
It was for real

Babe it was for real
It wasn’t real
It wasn’t real

—————————————————————

Should The Rain Fall

And should the rain fall after this
It’ll leave no colour on the things I miss
The clouds are empty now inside of me
And in a way somehow I am free

Another mountain there to climb
But I won’t look back just to see where I turned blind
Goodbye love, you almost broke my wings
this is my goodbye to that little thing

Well, it takes no colour by the winter snow
Takes no light where the sunshine flows
Takes no damage by the stones I throw
Takes no distance out of this lonely road

Has no taste of the wine that’s flowed
Takes no colour of green where the spring explodes
Takes no red where the leaves fill the road
And is has no face
Got no face that I know

And should the rain fall after this
It’ll leave no colour on the things I miss
Goodbye love you almost broke my wings
This is my goodbye to that little thing

Well, it takes no colour by the winter snow
Takes no light where the sunshine flows
Takes no damage by the stones I throw
Takes no distance out of this lonely road

Has no taste of the wine that’s flowed
Takes no colour of green when spring explodes
Takes no red where the leaves fill the road
And it has no face
Well it has no face
Got no face that I know

Should the rain fall after this

—————————————————————

The One You Are

When the night comes falling from above
When the night comes rising from below
And you’re looking for some place to go
When you come to the people you used to know

Still you wake up to the morning sun
An you’re looking back on all the fun
When you think you’ve lost
Though you may have won
When you’ve got to slow down ‘cause
There’s no time to run

Go easy now

When you look around
And you’ve come too far
You’re just a moment away
From the one you are
You’re just a moment away

Still you wake up to the morning sun
And you’re looking back on all the fun
When you think you’ve lost
Though you may have won
When you’ve got to slow down ‘cause
There’s no time to run

When the night comes falling from above
When the night comes rising from below
