Track Name: All my tears are gone
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
Track Name: My castles
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
Track Name: Are you as alone as I am? (I)
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 ?
Track Name: Don't give your heart to the sun
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
Track Name: Enough
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
Track Name: New man
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
Track Name: Elisabet*
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 »
Track Name: The one
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
Track Name: Wake up!
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
Track Name: Flying high
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
Track Name: Bird's-eye view
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
Track Name: Herr Vögler*
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 ? »
Track Name: Kill the old ghost
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
