Singer / Songwriter

                 Give me five

 

We are singing this song of tomorrow.

Tomorrow will bring a new chance.

Will it bring you the answer you are seeking.

Will it bring you, life in your hand.

 

 

If you stand by my side we are stronger,

We are strong when we are standing as one.

So come stand, on your feet, all together,

all together now singing our song.

 

Chorus:

Give me five, five, five.

Give me five up in the air.

Give me five, five, five.

Come on brother give me your hand.

Give me five, five, five

Give me five up in the air.

Come on brother give me five in the air.

 

It was good, it was strong it was power.

All your voices became just as one.

And the next time we sing it together.

I will see at least one thousand hands.

 

And this moment we all shared together.

We stood, hand, hand in hand when we sang.

And this moment might lead you forever and

maybe you are singing our song.

 

 

                             I will be there

 

I´m sitting here all alone on my chair telling stories.

It´s not easy to see, now it´s happening to me.

I am strong, I believe.

In my heart burns this will but the fire is fading.

Telling words that I see another word to believe

another song to set free.

 

Like the wind, like a storm.

Set it free!

 

Chorus:

I will be there! I have been waiting,

waiting for myself to be strong enough

to stand up and sing on my own.

I am so near. I have been waiting,

waiting for myself to be strong enough

to stand up and sing on my own.

And all doubts that I felt they are gone

I am here I have won.

 

I´m standing here all alone on the stage telling stories.

It´s not easy to see, this now is happening to me

I am strong, I believe.

In my heart burns this will but the fire is fading.

Telling words that I see, another word to believe,

another song to set free.

 

Like the wind, like a storm.

Set it free!

 

Chorus:

In darkness, in fire, if steel meet steel.

I will believe this feeling it is real.

 

 

 

 

  Stick together

 

We´re walking, we´re talking, you are my friend.

In glory, in darkness, I´m not afraid.

You wonder, a question, we speak a while.

We solve it together life´s not too hard.

 

Chorus:

If we stick together and speak a while

It gives us peace of mind.

Even the darkest journeys and questions why,

We solve them if we try.

 

Hey brother! Hey sister! You by my side,

we´re marching together towards the light.

Just feel it, inside you, just let it out.

Be happy, enjoy it life´s here and now!

 

Chorus:

If we stick together and speak a while

It gives us peace of mind.

Even the darkest journeys and questions why,

We solve them if we try.

 

Stick:

If you open up your mind, maybe you´ll

see the reasons why!

 

Chorus

If we stick together and speak a while

It gives us peace of mind.

Even the darkest journeys and questions why,

We solve them if we try. We solve them here and now!

 

 

 Spoken by the wind

 

 

                  All I see

 

We´re walking over mountains.

We´re sailing on the darkest seas.

We´re seeking some kind of candle

and hope it gives us stronger feelings.

 

Heaven takes what you can give

let me feel.

 

We´re standing all alone here,

all alone with nothing but ourselves.

If you give someone of your feelings

You might have at least one in return.

 

Heaven takes what you can give,

Let me feel.

 

Chorus:

All I see! All I feel!

All I want to be real.

It´s a feeling I want.

Come on and give me some more!

 

I want you, to hold a candle.

Let it guide me through the darkest night.

If you show me all your needs, I might

give you all you ever want.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                     I´m gonna call you love

 

The chill is all around me, the ice is in my veins.

Through the fog I see you´re struggling the wind is

in your face.

You are knocking on somebody´s door,

Say, - Please let me in.

I can´t hear it but I read your lips.

But they will not let you in.

 

Like a cat in the alley you seek a place to call home.

You are tired, cold and longing for a place to call your own.

 

It´s a place into your heart. It´s a place into your mind.

It´s a feeling that you are longing for.

It´s a feeling that you want.

 

Chorus:

It took a long time to wonder, why is spoken by the wind.

It took a long, long time but this feeling showed me how.

The time we spent together, I believe she was my thought.

Hey! Stay alive in my mind, I´m gonna call you love.

 

Again it is the cold night and the mystery is on.

This feeling holds the answer and the answer holds the sun.

She burns clear and bright inside me, when I give

She brings me more.

It´s an answer to a journey, it did start long ago.

 

Million tears did shook me, they were stuck

inside my throat.

I did swallow all the beauty it was I long ago.

Like a butterfly I spread my wings enjoying

my first flight.

To the stars I am aiming.

To the stars I will fly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

                      Hear the lonely wind

 

Hear the lonely wind which blows into the night.

It sweeps across the country it seeks the answer, Why?

Can´t you hear it cries out a will to rest a while,

to meet someone to talk to, to ask the question why?

 

I´ve been listening to this question for a while.

I have searched into my senses and look,

what have I found.

I met someone, I can´t believe that it was I.

From the beginning of this journey, the beginning

of a lie? who am I?

 

When there is nothing more to hide.

You will look into my eyes.

We will speak and we will cry,

now when you know the answer, why?

Hear a voice into your mind.

It will guide you through the night.

It will take you home again and this time

it´s home to stay.

 

Chorus:

You felt lost in time you tried to understand.

Remember, once you were a child.

Somewhere deep inside, your true you

live your life and you know the answer, why?

 

When you are alone, when no one understands,

when you´re walking in the shadows,

when the sun has disappeared.

Try to take it slow then you might understand,

those feelings you are feeling and why you felt

so strange.

 

I believe that whatever you might feel,

Your feelings are there to guide you they show

you how to be.

And the thoughts you have is it really you?

Are you traveling on your journey? Are your thoughts

and feelings you? Are you sure?

 

When there is nothing more to hide.

You will look into my eyes.

We will speak and we will cry.

Now when you know the answer, why?

Hear a voice into your mind.

It will guide you through the night.

It will take you home again and this time

it´s home to stay.

 

Chorus:

You felt lost in time you tried to understand.

Remember, once you were a child.

Somewhere deep inside, your true you

 

 

         Kickstart your heart

 

Do you ever think about your life?

Are you on the edge about to jump?

This jump can even be a little step,

a little step towards another goal.

 

Have you ever seen the morning light?

As you´re slowly tumbling through the night.

Have you ever felt that you´re alive?

As the morning star slowly fades and die.

 

Chorus:

Take your shoes, grab your bag.

Clear your throat and make a stand,

this time it´s for nobody else.

Moving light, feeling free,

Riding on, can´t you see,

you are marching like nobody else.

The metal horse is feeling strong,

don´t hold back the engine song.

You are riding for nobody else.

This time, it´s forever, my friend

come kickstart your heart!

 

Have you ever felt that you´re alone?

Now you are in charge, now sing your song!

Have you ever tried to cross the line?

This journey to begin will be your life.

 

 

 

 

 

 

           Kiss goodnight

 

Go to sleep my dearest friend

now it´s time to go.

We have had a happy time

my dear it´s time to go.

 

Fall asleep, the sweetest of dreams,

and close your tired eyes.

Now you will have a peaceful time.

It´s time to kiss goodnight.

 

You have had a wonderful time

and you have learned a lot.

Maybe tomorrow will be as good

as all the days before.

 

Fall asleep, the sweetest of dreams,

and close your tired eyes.

Now you will have a peaceful time.

It´s time to kiss goodnight.

 

Chorus:

Good night I kiss you dearest child,

I wish you all the best.

Now it´s time to close your eyes.

Now it´s time to rest…

 

In the dark the nightlight burns

and I hear your silent breath.

Now and then comes a little snore

and a little tear I shed.

 

Fall asleep, the sweetest of dreams,

and close your tired eyes.

Now you will have a peaceful time.

It´s time to kiss goodnight.

 

Chorus:

Good night I kiss you dearest child,

I wish you all the best.

Now it´s time to close your eyes.

Now it´s time to rest…

 

 

               Misery

 

Life in a little box, in your phone,

you´ll never see the stars.

Human, stand! Wipe your tears.

It´s time, don´t hide your face in there.

 

It will not go away, now it´s time.

The fallen is to cry, shed a tear,

a tear for us.

Oh yes we are…

 

Now you must realize, time to stand,

before it is too late.

Learn to walk, learn to fly, understand,

this game has gone too far.

 

 

They will not tolerate, if you fail

your options has run out.

Still there´s time, make your choice.

Oh yes! We are…

 

Chorus:

Misery, run away through your dreams,

when your real life is fading.

Can´t you see, you are caught in the net.

Don´t you know? You are lost on your track?

 

Lost in the cyber world, you are gone.

You´re out there on your own,

without friends, but then again,

you will be brainwashed anyway.

 

They will not tolerate if you loose.

This game will be in vain.

Start again, level one,

you´re back on track.

 

You try to start again, time is out,

might been misunderstood.

Use your thumb, try again.

Press and slide, the arrow shows

the way.

 

 

            Trust

 

In the heat of the night,

I believed that you cried.

Ten tears on your face.

It was sweeter then lace.

 

Let nobody see.

Let nobody know.

Let nobody hear.

It´s a scene that you fear.

 

Chorus:

In the light of someone you are lost

maybe gone, but somewhere in your

mind live your dream.

If you dare take a step feel the earth

you are back, on your feet.

You will walk towards the future.

 

Come near let me take,

take away all the pain.

I believed it was rain,

you´re no longer the same.

 

Let somebody see.

Let somebody know.

Let somebody hear,

it´s the truth that you fear.

 

                               Still

 

Time, Now it´s time to tell you how I feel.

I´ve been waiting all too long but now

I feel it´s time for me to tell you.

 

Cause I, I´ve been waiting by your side,

a while, I have looked you, in your eyes

and now I realize what love´s about.

 

Chorus:

This time we spent, filled with happy thoughts.

A meaning in the touch we took and gave.

Don´t let me say those years has been in vain.

Listened, my friend, we have to bring this

behavior, to an end.

It´s time to change before it is too late.

 

Run, from every little thought I have

for you, my love and dearest friend.

Unsure about the chords we´re playing.

 

And I, I stood beside you, even though I tried.

I tried to give you all the love.

I´ve try to lay this puzzle in my mind.

 

Chorus:

Still you are my baby.

Still you are my friend.

I hope it last forever.

Even though it`s rain.

 

Time, Now it´s time to tell you how I feel.

I´ve been waiting all too long but now

I feel it´s time for me to tell you.

 

Cause I, I´ve been waiting by your side,

a while, I have looked you, in your eyes

and I can see a treasure deep inside.

 

Chorus:

You didn´t tell me, that you stood in the rain.

I didn´t tell you I was stuck in the rain

You didn´t tell me, that we were stuck in the rain.

You didn´t tell me, all I saw was the pain.

 

 

 

 

 

Together for a while

                             Third time

 

Hey there girl lying in the dark, please don´t close your eyes.

The lust is mine but I need you so, don´t sleep tonight.

My body shakes but I am not afraid, don´t you realize,

that I need you now Yes I need you so, come on

give me love.

 

It took a long, long time, to be alone with you

and this time I won´t let you go.

Come be with me, I want to be with you,

this moment will come back, I hope.

 

All awake, eyes are burning bright a smile plays on your face.

You are lying there like a pussycat, awaiting foreplay.

You are crawling near I can feel your breath it burns on to my face.

I can feel your heart it is beating fast, it´s pounding hard on my chest.

 

It took a long, long time to be alone with you and

this time, I won´t let you go.

Come be with me, I want to be with you.

This moment will come back, I hope.

 

Chorus:

Now you are here, don´t you ever disappear.

I need you can´t you feel it.

Yes! Tonight come near and lie here by my side.

I need you can´t you heal me.

Don´t break this feeling.

 

 

 

 

 

           Hold the Light

 

Fallen light is fallen light

A queen in passion she grows.

She holds the light, the mysteries but she say

She isn´t fee.

She fight her journey, she fights her way.

She doesn´t listen so well.

She brings me light, she brings me whine,

in all the passion she brings.

 

Long ago she was my friend and we where

sharing a lot of our lives.

 

Fallen angel and fallen sky, was it Maria who lied.

A virgin holds her mysteries, but she don´t carry child.

 

Long ago she was my friend and we where

sharing a lot of our lives.

 

Chorus:

I believe that a lonely light burns in every soul.

Bring them light!

I believe that a lonely light burns in everyone.

Bring them light!

I believe that a lonely time maybe heals your wound.

Bring them light!

I believe that a lonely child might bring you something more.

Hold the light!

 

Here again I call your name

I walk on my own.

My life´s a kit I walk alone, I´m a silent one,

but I now I hold the key, it´s the key to my call.

Answer me, hold me free and I walk to be seen.

To be!!

 

 Long ago she was my friend and we where

sharing a lot of our lives.

 

Chorus:

 

 

                    Song of life

 

In the year some and four, he was reaching the shore.

It was wind in the air when he came from nowhere,

just an old simple man.

 

He had silver in hair, and his face was pretty worn.

With guitar in his knee he was singing to me and the

people around.

 

Chorus:

It was a song, about life, he was standing so proud

with mysterious eyes.

And he sang, sang to me and the words they clang on

to every string in my heart.

I felt freedom, for the first time in life, I felt free, I felt fine,

in this song that he sang, a song of life!

 

Now it´s years since that day, it comes to me now and then.

It was thoughts in the words and the words they were thoughts

and they came from his head.

 

Maybe tales from the past, maybe tales from today,

It´s not easy to tell from whom he was sent,

I still remember the words.

 

Chorus:

 

When the light burns in me, I feel happy alive and now I will tell

you the secret, I have inside my heart.

I am happy alive!

 

Chorus:

 

 

             One single day

 

A silent breeze is blowing.

A silent breeze is blowing from the sea.

And high above you, you can hear a seagull scream.

It´s summer now, this summer day will move you now.

 

The sound of waves behind you,

the sound of waves hitting some rocks.

Water smashed to pieces with a splash it is gone.

It is summer now this summer day will move you now.

 

Chorus:

Why don´t you take a break and catch the moment now.

Hey for a while!

Why don´t you take a break and carpe diem now.

Live for a while!

 

In the light of fire, in the sand, which is still hot.

Drink a beer in silence with a piece full thought in your head.

It is summer now this summer night will move you now.

 

Maybe dusk an hour, then the sun will slowly raise again.

Hope it last forever or at least one single day.

It is summer now this summer day will move you now.

 

 Chorus:

Why don´t you take a break and catch the moment now.

Hey for a while!

Why don´t you take a break and carpe diem now.

Live for a while!

Why don´t you take a break and leave the problems

all behind.

Now is life, just try to be alive.

 

 

                    Dream away

 

Open the cupboard and take out a bottle, a bottle

of whiskey I drink it with ice.

I walk to my favorite chair it is placed in my favorite

room with guitars on the wall.

 

Lightning my pipe, taking a breath and

taking a small sip of whiskey.

 

I light up the candle, it´s placed on the table,

the table is full of feathers and stuff.

I drink some more whiskey my thoughts starts to wonder.

I think of last summer and the one that will come.

 

Lightning my pipe, taking a breath and

taking a small sip of whiskey.

 

Chorus:

And I dream away. Aaaaa

I dream away.  Aaaaaa

I dream away.  Aaaaaaa

I will sit here for awhile.

 

I think of the salmon I caught in the river.

All dressed in silver plus twenty pounds weight.

I think of the nights we spent by the river,

with coffee and hot dogs, we made in the night.

 

Lightning my pipe, taking a breath and

taking a small sip of whiskey.

 

I pick up my fly box I look among beauties,

this special black fly I´ve  caught many on.

I drink some more whiskey my thoughts starts to wonder

I think of last summer and the one that will come.

 

Lightning my pipe, taking a breath and

taking a small sip of whiskey.

 

Chorus:

 

 

                                 Sun

 

 I believe you will turn back, to this land you had future plans.

 I believe that your light will turn us alright it is shining on and on

 to the ground. It is shining bright.

 Keep this land till fall and I believe you will shine near all night.

 You will give us hope and strength to survive and in your heat

 we´re lying down on the ground.

 

 I believe we will grow strong, these summer nights they will never

 end and these hot summer days together we spend.

 On the beach you gave us heat in the sand.

 This hot sand made us lonely, we went out to found us a friend and

 we walked hand in hand, in this hot summer land, we danced and drunk,

 made love in the sand.

 

 Chorus:

 Catch the day I believe it won’t stay here too long, now the light has come.

 Enjoy it if you can!

 Leave your home and take your bike if you like you can ride all day.

 If you got the time!

 Take a break don`t make the mistake to sit home on a day like this.

 The sun is shining bright!

 Now it’s light we are feeling alright in this hot summer night,

 feeling right.

 

 Sand in shoes and red skin the sound of waves hitting some rocks.

 Lay down on the beach, feel the sun, feel its heat, feeling lazy,

 take a nap in the breeze.

 Take a beer by the fire, talk to friends you met here today.

 We all here want you near, please can’t you stay, sun you gave us

 wonderful days.

 

 Chorus:

 

 Longer nights are here and snow is in the wind.

 But soon you will be back with heat in the wind.

 Waiting for you! Longing for you!

 

 Chorus:

 

 

                       Wolf

 

 His heart beats, he is walking.

 He searches through his domains.

 Stars shines, from clear sky, the night is cold and bright.

 He is cold now he is hungry, nothing to eat in sight.

 His senses are sharper, for every step he takes.

 

                       Chorus:

 His heart beats, this winter night

 takes the will and strength to stay alive.

 This fire burns so strong inside.

  A long night, can´t run away from

 himself, a wild and free creature.

 He will be strong moves as one tonight.

 

 Wild eyes like stars shine they hold a will to live.

 A wild will, he might kill, if not he will die.

 Listens, with sharp ears, something is moving slow,

 an old deer feels no fear too weak to run away.

 

 Chorus:

 

 The forest is silent, the snow is falling down.

 Raven is cleaning, this blood mark will soon disappear.

 A new dawn is raising, if you listen you can hear his call.

 He is lonely, maybe harmless, none can tell,

 but time will tell.

 

 Chorus:

 

 

               Move on till tomorrow

 

Move on till tomorrow take a step a little step,

you are my silent friend from an ancient time.

I have felt your presence, are you near I was in fear

You read my hidden thought. Did you force me to see??

 

Distant dreams and long shots, are you there? I did not ask you.

Like a dream forever, it was a tear without an end.

Once I had my goal, it was all clear

Like a dream, it could not disappear,

and then tomorrow, it was gone and far away.

 

On my feet again, walk this road, my steps are faster.

I can see the light, it is shining bright.

And it fills my heart with joy and understanding,

As I move along to my inner song.

 

Distant dreams and long shots, are you there? I did not ask you.

Like a dream forever, it was a tear without an end.

Once I had my goal, it was all clear.

Like a dream, it could not disappear,

But then tomorrow, it was gone and far away.

 

Chorus:

This is my goal let it be untold, the struggle is the journey.

Say what is right, if not stand up and fight.

We have to free our spirit.

This is my goal let it be untold, the struggle is my journey.

Say what is right, if not stand up and fight.

My heart is feeling strong tonight.

 

Distant dreams and long shots, are you there? I did not ask you.

Like a dream forever, it was a tear without an end.

Once I had my goal, it was so clear

Like a dream, it could not disappear,

But then tomorrow, it was gone and far away.

 

Chorus:

This is my goal let it be untold, the struggle is the journey.

Say what is right, if not stand up and fight.

We have to free our spirit.

This is my goal let it be untold, my struggle is my journey.

Say what is right, if not stand up and fight.

My voice is screaming out tonight.

 

 

 

                      Alive

 

Walking thru the snow, the northern wind it roars.

On my way to work and my feet are cold.

My eye it holds a tear, my face is coloured red.

 

Thinking of a foreign place in distant land,

thinking that tomorrow I will leave this hell

and seek this distant land.

First I will work all day.

 

And I, I wish you´d been here too,

walking by my side into the sun.

And I, am I in paradise?

This feeling in my heart it says me so.

 

Chorus:

I am alive sitting on a flight with freedom in my eyes.

This journey´s not the end it is the start.

With the sun into my eyes, with the wind into my back

will I ever be the same if  I´m coming back.

 

Trying to find out what life can bring.

If I handle my cards right I might just win

or I might loose it all, loose the grip and fall.

 

Looking for the way I want to live my life.

I don´t want to feel all dead inside,

inside my heart and soul, I have to have a goal.

 

And I, I wish you´d been here too,

walking by my side into the sun.

And I, am I in paradise?

This feeling in my heart it says me so.

 

Chorus:

 

 

             Together for awhile

 

Five a clock, the music wakes me from a dream.

Monday morning and I`m tired.

I try to gather all my thoughts, avoid to go to sleep.

A little sip of coffee, then, my body slowly wakes.

Then I realize, today it is the day.

You and I will have our meeting.

A little rose in hair, a little secret sign of love.

This feeling in heart, my life will take another turn.

 

And it´s ticking like a time bomb

and the fuse is running short.

 

Chorus:

I am the morning light.

I´m listening to birds, they are singing.

I´m in the morning sun and

I´m so glad, that I found you.

Now! It is no return.

I´m standing so strong in this feeling.

I´m Mr. no return and I am

holding my heart in the fire.

 

Our meeting was on time, I saw your heart.

I have never felt such fire.

You are here beside me, standing on my hill.

I am so happy that I found you.

You were a fallen star you played your cards so well.

You did nearly spend all your money.

In your little house, you played tear drops on the radio.

Now you’re by my side, together for a while.

 

And it´s ticking like a time bomb

and the fuse is running short.

 

Chorus:

 

Will not go around and hide my face for you.

I will spread my wings, I´m flying!

Will not walk away, or break your heart in two.

As I waves you on and on, I feel you are my Sun.

 

Chorus:
