There’s a feeling that I want to feel When I slowly dive into the night I close my eyes Turn out the light You never wonder why All my tears are gone When in my dreams I drown All my tears are gone When in my dreams I drown There’s someone that I want to be When you don’t give up on me My old fears die and disappear As I have never seen Ref There’s something that I want to know When you go deep into my soul Do you fall in love with somebody Sometimes in this reality ? Ref

My castles 03:35
My Castles Are just made of sand In the king’s room Her life Came to an end My Castels We used to live in When we were friends My Castels I took her by the hand On the silent beach Our love Ended up stranding My Castles We used to live In mists and rains Now life calls out for change My Castles I sold The father’s land To a stranger Whose Wife Ended up breaking My Castles What if I’d live So far from them ? My Castles I have a fight on my hands And as the tide flows The Kingdom comes To an end Oh My Castles We used to live in When we were friends My Castles Are just made of sand In the king’s room Her life Came to an end My Castels We used to live in When we were friends

We never thougth it could happen to us Death stroke quickly just around the corner In this summer I saw her Leaving us so helpless After the killers left The worst that could happen So let me ask you something : Ref « Are you as alone as I am ? Do you hear the sound of the gun? Can you chase the ghosts from your head? Do you see the world of tomorrow? There’s nothing to soften the blow Are you as alone as I am ? Waiting for the end of the storm Can you feel the need of love The fear of loss and my sorrow ? Are you as alone as I am now ? We never thougth we could watch this scene The most violent image we have ever seen In the summer Around the corner Leaving us so heartless After the shooter’s death It’s not the life that we had dreamed So I wonder : « Are you as alone as I am ? Do you hear the sound of the gun? Can you chase the ghosts from your head? Do you see the men of tomorrow They never let their feelings show Are you as alone as I am ? Waiting for the end of the storm Do you feel the need of hope To see the light behind the shadows? Are you as alone as I am now ?

Jane, I met someone who said to me You took flight with your own wings You left your family here Tell me I never saw this coming When I heard the beating of your wings You started a whole new life Ref : Don’t give your heart to the sun Don’t give your heart in your turn I’ll follow you with angels All stars are calling Don’t give your heart to the sun Don’t give your heart when it’s burning All stars are calling All stars are calling Jane There’s something I’ve been missing Something without knowing Something about you Tell me That I can take for granted That life is not so unfair Life is not so mean Ref Each night the moon whispers to me Change is what you need Change is a good thing Promise me that You will never forget me I’m connected with you Beyond those memories Ref
5.
Enough 02:10
To people who don’t say “thank you” I say enough is enough! You leave me without a “thank you” I say enough is enough! When you loved me so deeply I thought you stole my thoughts That’s why I only gave my body That’s why I saved my soul I said enough The people who pretend to protect you I say enough is enough! A car is running over you I say enough is enough! When you kissed me so deeply I thought you stole my thoughts That’s why I only gave my body That’s why I saved my soul I said enough I said enough is enough I said enough is enough When you loved me so deeply I thought you stole my thoughts That’s why I only gave my body That’s why I saved my soul I said enough

New man 03:08
I have no right to complain To give up now To blow my chance So I won’t turn my back I Won’t go away I’ll open my heart and say Ref : « Oh babe I’ll turn myself into a new man Close to the place of my childhood I’ll put my life in your good hands And get off on the right foot Spending time with my best friends Always living my childhood Always living my childhood The past still lives in me And I want you to imagine To bring back all those memories Of scary ghost stories Ref
7.
Elisabet* 01:07
The woman : « When you sleep Your face is relaxed Your mouth is swollen And ugly There’s a mean wrinkle On your forehead You smell of sleep and tears I can see the pulse on your neck It has a scar you normally cover With make up » The man : « Elisabet ! Elisabet ! » The woman : « He is calling again I’ll find out what he wants from us Out there Far away here In our solitude »

The one 02:37
All my life I will be sorry I wish you were in front of me To tell you things I have never told before Standing here In front of me With your black dress And little sleeves I’ll tell you things i’ve never told before Despite the fact that I have gone blind It’s not so hard to testify Finally I know you are the one Oh my love you took me by surprise The more I live the more I die You showed me things that I have never seen before I’m wondering if you are fine I cross the fingers Come rain or shine Finally I know you are the one I can’t deny That I’ve gone blind And if you don’t see it I don’t mind Finally I know you are the one Despite the fact that I’ve gone blind It’s not so hard to testify Finally I know you are the one

Wake up! 02:58
When I wake up When I wake up You wanna break up You wanna break up When I wake up When I wake up You wanna break up And I’ve got to shut up Birds are singing in my brain And I don’t want to hear it anyway When I wake up at five In the middle of the night I can’t remember my name I told you again and again When I wake up When I wake up You wanna make up You wanna make up When I wake up It’s juste time to wake up You wanna make up And I’m only fed up Kids are playing on the square And I don’t want to hear it anyway When I wake up at five In the middle of my life I call and call your name I’ll call you again and again I’ll call you again and again I’ll call you again and again A plane is crashing in the bay And I don’t want to see it anyway When I wake up at five In the middle of the night I call and call your name I’ll call you again and again I’ll call you again and again I’ll call you again and again

Flying high 03:14
Neither life nor death Can separate us From those we loved From those we hurt It’s been a long time since we left Now we are Flying high Flying high Ref : Flying high When you cross the sky Flying high With a fire burning inside That makes you feel happy and bright Flying high See your own light Shine We couldn’t have dreamed up A better trip Between the clouds The sun Is calling our spaceship It’s been a long way To get there Oh Time just flies… Ref : Flying high In a starry sky Flying high When you’re in love with someone Someone who’s always on your mind Flying high See your own light Shine Finally the dream came true Jane is flying to the moon She will be fine Flying high Ref : Flying high When you cross the sky Flying high With a fire burning inside That makes you feel happy and bright Flying high See your own light Shine

Look at the plane Jane is in the plane She’s travelling Above the sea So listen to me Dont’ call her now She is so far from ground You can’t call her now Caus’ she’s got her bird She’s got her bird’s-eye view Her bird She’s got her bird’s-eye view She’s gonna do what she wanna do Look at the plane People in the plane They’re worrying About her life She’s afraid of dying Dont’ call her now She’s so far from ground You can’t kiss her now She’s got her bird She’s got her bird’s-eye view Her bird She’s got her bird’s-eye view She’s gonna do what she wanna do Flying high without you Her bird She’s got her bird’s-eye view Her bird She’s got her bird’s-eye view

The man : « Elisabet, Elisabet I’m sorry if I frightened you » The woman : « I am not Elisabet » The man : « I have no demands I didn’t want to disturb you Don’t you think I understand ? The doctor has explained things But it’s hard to explain to your little boy I do the best I can There’s something deep down, Difficult to get a grip on You love somebody, Or say you do It’s tangible like words The woman : « Her Vögler, i am not your wife The man : « You are also loved You form a bond It gives you security A chance to endure, doesn’t it ? How can I say it all Without losing myself Without boring you ? »
13.
The sea, the sea Forever starting over Is shining like a diamond Sparkling at the sun The waves are calling Breaking through the silence A moon will be coming I won’t miss the moment Ref : Jane is gonna kill the old ghosts See them falling into the sea Chase the black clouds See them falling into the sea Staring at the endless horizon I’d like to be burried here Close to the ocean Where i used to breathe Ref The wind is rising I can’t avoid this trip I’m seeking hope and peace True sky, handsome heaven ! True sky, handsome heaven ! Ref
