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

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

Real Lady 03:40
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 Ref.

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

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

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

Deep end 02:10
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

Familly life 01:33
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?

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

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

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
