Track Name: Please never come back
Everyone had to admit
That the times went on
And some chapters in their life
Should be closed

Terrifying how past
May capture you
And tighten up
With non-existing lies

You disappeared from my life
The only thing I can say now
Is that it was for the best
Please never come back

I will never fall for someone again
I will never love you again
You broke me as I would be a wine glass
And urged me to play all these sad songs

Don’t make a story without an end
Do have a courage to write an epilogue
Track Name: Sky
I see a mountains in your eyes
Can I climb them with you?
I am not good with words at all
You will never understand my handwriting too
I’ll just keep running-running
I’ll just keep running-running

Running through the forest of my own lonely songs

Dont be so shy, I do expect reject tonight
Bottle of wine, the sea, the birds are singing this with me
I’ll just keep running-running
I’ll just keep running-running
Track Name: Arms of art
I haven’t slept for 7 days
Havin’ so much work to do
Chaos inside and messy outside
Yeah I’m ready to attend the school
I’ll keep my standarts high,
I’ll keep my ambitions high
But they won’t be as high as my friends tonight

I don’t want to go home
Please let me stay in the warm arms of art

Big ideas have occupied my soul
the big days are gonna come – I hope
there’s no shining through
there’s no place to lose
(So many bodies in the world)
And a little soul
Can I change it with the idea
(of warmth from art)
Track Name: One day
One day I will meet you on the other side
of our precious world
You still will smoke a lot
(I still wont have a home)

We will talk for hours and say
See you later in the end

Knowing that it might be the last time,
we joke about
Track Name: Autumn strikes
I am tired of what I know
Sounds that I hear
Colors, smell in the air
(Winds are playing with Earth’s sounds)
Autumn strikes
All over metro lines
Autumn strikes
All over metro lines

Relax you are loved
And that’s what matters the most

Kisses promising nothing
I am here and I dissolve now
(In a shallow daylight celebration)
Full of sad people by my table
Track Name: River song
in a sea of wonder
in an alley of shy trees
why do we feel so lonely
how to hear your voice
throughout this noise?
blue again, car engine
some harsh emergency sounds along

My soul is just a reflection of a turn around
in your kitchen’s mirror

in the clouds
there’s no place for birds
and they hear themselves cry
because of their lives
some harsh emergency sounds
I hear in the dark
Track Name: Goodbye
All the dresses put in boxes
All the friends have left the city
Don’t say goodbye
There is nothing good in spelling it
No strings attached
no strings attached

I hear the plane sounds over my head

all my lives I’ve lived in trouble
all the horrors that I’ve seen
it was always empty room and my cold bed
I forgot what I felt yesterday
i forgot what I have seen
darkness that has taken over me
points to people that were never free
our past, our non-existing glory
goodbye - once and for all
Track Name: Life goes on
When I cry the sky falls down
And when I close my eyes I see winter outside
Crushed wine bottle, chaos in my heart
There’s no light and I’ ve never seen a sun
No photographs on this cold day

With time you learn that life goes on
it’s gonna pass by through your life

Bottle of tears and untouchable rain
Keeps winter out of this whole mess
There’s no place that I would call home
I’m too young to be this sad
