A moment so short it lasted forever A shot in my heart Couldn’t stop and stare it was not easy Why were you there? Everyday I just wanted a glimpse Today I don’t even remember Everyday I just wanted a glimpse One moment too long gone in a heartbeat A flame in the dark Couldn’t stop and stare it was not easy Why were you there? Everyday I just wanted a glimpse Today I don’t even remember Everyday I just wanted a glimpse

Shadow chases you Don’t feel trapped Sheltered under a roof Won’t stay dry Dance beneath the sun Take the lead Face this one-on-one Wake up from dreams You son of a gun You’ve already won Crazy is not the word You passionate sea bird You passionate sea bird Kneel down Kiss the ground Tears of joy There’s always more You son of a gun You’ve already won Crazy is not the word You passionate sea bird You passionate sea bird You son of a gun

Big blue blanket Cover me Big blue blanket Save me Help me to escape From reality From the monsters And the enemy Big blue blanket Give me your love (love love) Big blue blanket I’m high on your drugs Show me how to survive In this crazy place How I have to cope With all that I hate (and love love) Big blue blanket Is this what it’s all about? Big blue blanket Can’t I really do without?

I don’t know What I’m waiting for But I know It will arrive for sure All that I long for Is making me feel alive And while I am waiting I still go ahead and dive And in the deep night When I can’t sleep at all Is when I cry And try to breathe Feeling kind of lost Lost and on my own On my own I wait Wait patiently I still have some questions - don’t want it to be an obsession I only know so little - all the answers seem riddles All that I long for Is making me feel alive And while I am waiting I still go ahead and dive And in the deep night When I can’t sleep at all Is when I cry And try to breathe

She’s a rock Covered with salt Strong, brittle Shifting like tides She’s a rock Never gets old Young, little Living a lie When the sun disappears Her shadow gets taller All of her fears Become smaller She’s a rock Shows no emotions Cries, giggles Never a sigh When the sun disappears Her shadow gets taller All of her fears Become smaller She’s a rock Covered with salt Strong, brittle Shifting like tides

Weightless in salt Ceiling is blue Weightless in salt Here without you Alone but not lonely “Take your time”, they told me My body’s spinning My mind’s drifting Listening to ancient music Whispering water under me Here we are eternally free Time does not exist Listening to ancient music Whispering water under me Here we are eternally free Enjoy inexistence of time

Not a day is the same Countless cinema shows On the 25th I don’t mind being locked up Sometimes I wave To the representative He soars on warm air Disappears between buildings Sometimes I see waves Unridden below me They won’t return Disappear between buildings Not a day is the same Countless cinema shows Sometimes I wave To the representative He soars on warm air Disappears between buildings Sometimes I see waves Unridden below me They won’t return Disappear between buildings On the 25th I don’t mind being locked up

I’m almost as tall as these trees My heels are stuck in the soil In time, all of this grew on me So why are my bones so heavy? I came to this world without wings Only feel the urge to fly Wonderful views from the canopy Then, why are my bones so heavy? They pull me down To the bottom of the ocean Swimming with you You don’t look me in the eye This ain’t nothing new Familiar currents and tides I’m almost as tall as these trees Why are my bones so heavy? I came to this world without wings Why are my bones so heavy? They pull me down To the bottom of the ocean Swimming with you You don’t look me in the eye This ain’t nothing new Familiar currents and tides

This is what it is Right now is what we got Right now Driving through these landscapes My breath is always taken away Time stands still, Only for a second It’s a never-ending moment Summer moved on And I fall Fall in love with a new season Find beauty in a simple reset Always remember the best Right now I can’t stand The feeling of What never comes back But I do Embrace what life gives It’s not guaranteed But it’s what I need Right now, right now Embrace what life gives It’s not guaranteed But it’s what I need Right now

I know it’s not easy I know you fell into pieces Had to gather all your bruises Find light in your darkness It all seems so ruthless Looking for excuses You’re a strong man You’re a strong man You’re a strong man You’re a strong man

I’m sitting behind you I bet you don’t have a clue Of what you have done It’s here, but it’s gone Gone away We’re not gonna play Gone away We’re not gonna play Anymore You turned your back on us Threw away my trust Do you know what you’ve done It’s here, but it’s gone Gone away There’s nothing left to say Gone away There’s nothing left to say Anymore Nothing left to say
