Track Name: Change your world (I)
I took a flight and came to see you
Trying to break loose
Breathing hope of a new life
I looked for someone true

I took a flight and came to your house
Not a word was spoken
Now every time I see you are falling down
I want to rush to you

But we don’t want to change your world
It would be so useless
We don’t want to make things worse
You don’t need no resolution

We don’t want to change your world
But are you strong enough?
We don’t want to make things worse
All you need is consolation
In the end

You’re afraid of everyday life
Always in a bad mood
You’d rather be protected by a lie
Than hurt by the truth

But that day you fell on the floor
That day you drank a little more
I’m sure you knew what you were doing
In that liquor store

We don’t want to change your world
It would be so useless
We don’t want to make things worse
You don’t need no resolution

We don’t want to change your world
But are you strong enough?
We don’t want to make things worse
All you need is consolation
All you need is consolation

I took a flight and came to see you
Trying to break loose
Breathing hope of a new life

I looked for someone true
I looked for someone true
I looked for someone true
Track Name: Don't deprive yourself of being happy
There’s something i’ve been missing
All my live
Something about my loneliness
I’m glad to see that I am not the only one

Something about my melancholy
That kind of feeling
Drives me crazy

So don’t deprive yourself
Of being happy

Don’t deprive yourself
Of being cool
Don’t deprive yourself
Of being fool
Of being sweet kind and lovely

Don’t deprive yourself
Of being pure
Of being who you want to be
Don’t deprive yourself
Of being happy

I tell you this because
All the things we’ve done
Might be gone

I know how hard that was for you
I know the absence
I know the blues
The feeling that the night will never end

That kind of loss makes me angry
But we’re all in the same boat honey
So don’t deprive yourself
Of being happy

I tell you this because
All the things we’ve done
Are gone

Don’t deprive yourself
Of being cool
Don’t deprive yourself
Of being fool
Of being sweet kind and lovely

Don’t deprive yourself
Of being sure
Of being who you want to be
Don’t deprive yourself
Track Name: Real Lady
Some people see you as a real lady
But now you’re living with a child honey
Isn’t it funny ?
When he’s screaming like a baby
Easy
Easy
Easy
You want to take your leave

There she goes to a bar with your car
Yes she's found a place
Spending all the money
You gave to her
Yesterday
Sitting on a highchair
With her long black hair
Remember what she said...

Now she’s flying to the stars
Full of scars
Staring into space
Spending her time drinking wine
A foot in her grave
Sitting on a highchair
With her long black hair
Remember what she said:
“I’m a real lady who screams
Now I need a change of scene”

Some people see you as a real lady
But now you’re living with a freak honey
Isn’t it funny ?
He only wants you for your body

Easy
Easy
Easy
You want to take your leave

Track Name: My dad has gone away
No more fears
And no more cries
Just remember what he looked like
My dad has gone away

The little jokes
The little smiles
I used to see his face
His scars
My dad has gone away

At the deadline
I’ll wash my tears away

See him running through
The countryside
Looking for a place to hide

Running through
The countryside
Looking for a place to die

My dad has gone away
My dad has gone away
At the deadline
I’ll wash my tears away

No more dreams
And no more lights
Just remember he was my father
Oh my dad has gone away

The little jokes
The little smiles
I used to see his face
His scars
My dad has gone away

Finally
We did nothing to make him stay
Finally
We did nothing to make him stay
Track Name: Look at the ceiling
It’s four in the morning
And I could not sleep
Haven’t been sleeping so much lately
I look at the ceiling
I look at the ceiling

I could not sleep
Because i’m seeing
You are sitting
In the livingroom

Looking at the ceiling
At the shadows of the past
Looking at the ceiling
But they never give a sign

Looking through
All that you’ve done
All we’ve lost
All it’s ongoing
I look at the ceiling
I look at the ceiling

Now I miss your sense of humor
Your sweetness
In the dark hours
I look at the ceiling

Dreaming of the happy times
Looking at the ceiling
But they never give a sign

It’s four in the morning
And I could not sleep
Haven’t been sleeping so much lately

I look at the ceiling
Track Name: I'll never send my love to hell
They say we can not win
If we do not play the game
Do you mind if I lose
And if I live this way ?

I don’t get enough time to waste
Playing that game
I only wish i’ll never send my love
To hell

To hell
I’ll never send my love
To hell
I’ll never send my love

A million miles away from here
Somewhere we haven’t been before
Does she hear all my blues
Walking along the shore ?

I don’t get enough time to waste
Moaning all day

I only wish i’ll never send my love
To hell

To hell
I’ll never send my love
To hell
I’ll never send my love
To hell
I’ll never send my love to hell
To hell
I’ll never send my love
Track Name: Deep end
It’s the same old story
We were thrown in at the deep end
Don’t make up stories
Thrown into the world too early

I am a castaway
Lost in the sea
Whashed up on the sand
Eaten by the ocean
I was cut off from our land

The same old song
You were facing death with your own fear
Don’t make up stories
Losing ground under your feet

Born in a family
Who wiped away my tears
My father used to take care of me
Heal my broken heart
Heal my broken heart
Heal my broken heart
Track Name: Familly life
Have you ever seen my father?
Have you ever seen my mom ?

Have you ever seen my brother?

Have you ever seen them all?

If you see them
Tell them I miss them
If you meet them
Tell them
I love them

Have you ever seen?
Have you ever seen them all?
Have you ever seen
Have you ever seen
Them all?
Track Name: We have died so many times
Everybody knows that
You did on purpose
From now on
You will never be the same

But i have always known
Life is not all roses
When this world
Comes slowly to an end

Guess we never thought
About
A passion that might kill us

That’s why
We have died so many times
We have died so many times
In the silence of our crime

Everybody said
You did nothing
To make him stay
From above
You will never feel ashame

But I have always known
I’ll see you in the rainbow
While this world comes slowly to an end

Guess we never thought
About
A passion that might kill us babe

That’s why
That’s why
We have died so many times
We have died so many times
We have died so many times

Without knowing
With no sign
Without worrying
Without mind

In the silent of our crime
Track Name: Too close to the sun
The rain is falling
I’m walking on a seafloor
See all those million tears
I can’t drop anymore
When your wings were burning
I saw flames
From the shore

Dad
Tell me
You did it for fun
You flew
Too close to the sun
In case you wouldn’t know
The reason of the fall

Memories come rushing
I can’t dwell in the absence
If only someone else
Could break
That defeaning silence

When I was a boy
Worried
Waiting for you behind the door


Dad
Tell me
You did it for fun
You flew
Too close to the sun

You flew
Too close to the sun

In case you wouldn’t know
The reason of the fall
Track Name: Like father like son
You’ve got the eyes
You’ve got the same long face
You’ve got that smile
You’ve got those finger’s bend

You’ve got the soul
You’ve got the style it takes
You’ve got everything he gave to you

The same name
The same grace
Look at that nose
Look at that big forehead
That’s why people said

Like father like son
Like father like son
Like father like son
Like father like
Everybody knows where
You come from
Like father like son

You’ve got the same tenderness
Same sense humor
Hiding a sweet darkness
You make the same jokes
You give the same strokes
I’m sure you really like going out

You’re a spitting image of him
He loved you more than anything
That’s why people sing

Like father like son
Like father like son
Like father like
Everybody knows the day he’s gone
Everybody knows what he's done
Everybody knows where you come from
Like father like son
Like father like son
Like father like son
