1.
In the early morning When the sun‘s not up The dawn chorus sings Your light shines Your light shines And warms the day Your light shines And warms my heart I used to wake before the day And wait for the light With you close by It always shines
2.
02:16
From a distance I see your face Through the foggy night I see myself From afar I hear your voice In your words I hear myself Like a breeze A ghostly touch Through molecules I feel myself In the dark, we are one Made the same, I disappear
3.
Life can be a lonely mission When seasons come and go And days turn light and dark Thrown out into the wild With no direction but to go To steadily go on I run in circles, run in squares Tracing out a space that is my own And in this space I let you in To fill it with a beat My heart resonates in yours Now the seasons come and go The future‘s running at high speed Leaving spirals in the sand

03:47
In my coral dream I swim with you In water cold and deep Let go and drift My coral dream, your coral dream My fins, they shine In the light that breaks Like a rainbow in the sea I swim with you In water cold and deep Let go and drift In the coral reef I stay with you Down below where I am free
5.
04:32
By the river, by the sea In the water, at the beach High-pitched cries to lure you in I‘ll wait until you comply A man lost in the wilderness Or lost in his own mind Will start to hear my frantic call And then begins the fall Come into my solitude What you have or don‘t or want It‘ll turn your heart and mind It‘ll make you stay behind In the river, in the sea I float and guard the empty shore You trust in freedom like a cure It cannot break my spell By the river, by the sea In the water, at the beach In the frosty cold I give to you Strength to carry on By the river, by the sea I put this shroud onto your bones Guide you through my barren land It‘ll be the last you‘ll wear
6.
03:15
At first it doesn‘t look so bad Bluebells still in bloom Cotton balls like giant snow Dreamy-coloured sights Entire lives were lived For better or worse Coming here for shelter Holding onto shades Inching foward on sore feet Joyous wonders all around Kindness promised, never found Lured into a dream that‘s turned Nettles grow where orchids sang Pain reminds of where to go Quietly, with crimson force Misty hopes to clouded fears Right below the broken bridge Sits a lonely soul Unaware the fish have left Vanished up and down the stream Winding down my lonely mind Exiled to the shores Yelling along frosty winds Zero colours left
7.
03:15
In the dawn, my love I sing this song to you To mend this lonesome heart I call to you through sleepy trees But if you don‘t listen to the wind Don‘t swim and feel the cold You won‘t hear me, you won‘t hear me Through the noise, through the noise In the dawn, my love I serenade alone Pretending you will hear My call through roaring seas
8.
03:41
All the stars in the sky Twinkle like your eyes And the nightingales scurries Along the moonlit path On the edge of the forest The fox lays down and goes to rest On a branch above the mighty owl Meditates in starlit spheres A field in faded light Fall into silent darkness A stage on which I wait All around peaceful bliss Amidst the fireflies And their fairy light
9.
Wolves in my garden Hunting, waiting for me This house has no doors No one‘s been inside Broken lights flicker Smoke escapes the roof Home is where my ghosts are Home is here alone A lost memory A pain not healed They linger around Waiting to scrape on the wound To dig up the tears Monsters in my mind Sleeping, waiting for you Locked up in their prison No one‘s been inside Sometimes their bodies twitch Their eyes look through mine Home is where my ghosts are Home is here alone
10.
03:48
The river flows So gently in the land Breaking on small pebbles Laughing with no voice But I am like the mountain Standing still Everything is moving But I am standing On my own The clouds go by White pecks on blue Telling distant stories Observers of the world The air is soft Around my hills Filling my valleys With misty tales of love
11.
04:46
This room is filled with so much bliss Laughing eyes and sparkling smiles Every now and again the walls Seem to shake a bit Your eyes from a million miles Piercing through the crowd and noise For one moment, the clocks stand still And the walls fall down and we take off I look around and listen in So many words, so little space While I try to take it in My own words freeze inside Through the dark we forge ahead Alone in space and time Once my feet touch the ground again The floor won‘t stop to sway
12.
Be a tree they said Be a tree they said And the forest I became Build some walls they said Build some walls they said And the fortress I became Grow some roots they said Grow some roots they said And the earth and I were one Close your eyes they said Close your eyes they said And the darkness I became
13.
The wind blows cold into my face Cutting me with icy blades The wind blows cold across this land Unearthing shapes from times long past The wind blows cold into my face The wind blows cold across this land The wind blows cold into my face But I‘m not here, no, I am gone
