THE ACOUSTIC EP (2013)

 

If it’s alright

I haven’t seen you
since that day
I dropped your things off
like you asked me to, and then,
we were nothing but a painted memory
 
if it’s alright with you then it’s alright with me
if it’s alright with you then it’s not alright with me 
 
I think about you now and then
you know my place it looks so big with all this space
you don’t know what your missing out, but see
 
if it’s alright with you then it’s alright with me
if it’s alright with you then it’s alright with me
 
I can’t help it, you’re on my mind
but I wont even try to make you change your mind
I know I’d better let you go and see
 
if it’s alright with you then it’s alright with me
if it’s alright with you then it’s alright with me
if it’s alright with you then it’s alright with me
if it’s alright with you then it’s alright with me
 

Moving from this town

I’m moving from this town
I’m going to a place I know, 
far away
I can’t stay 
here anymore
 
’cause loneliness is bitter
and bitter is my only friend
a spiteful pain 
tears me up 
until there’s nothing left
 
I’m ready now to give it up
close the door, 
walk away
don’t look back
 
I want snow in the winter
melting ice in the spring
soft light in the summer nights
cold rain on fire colored leafs
 
I need to go back home
 
I want snow in the winter
melting ice in the spring
soft light in the summer nights
cold rain on fire colored leafs
 
I’m biding you good bye
this town was never meant to be Genesis
it wasn’t made for people like me
 
so hold your breath I’m on my way 
I’m going now 
to my friends in my hometown
back to my friends in my hometown

You’ll find another

You’ve been awake about an hour
in a room you don’t know
with someone you could love
 
but does he feel the same
he sleeps like he doesn’t really want you here
he’s a little cold
so maybe he will say he doesn’t want you at all
 
you know soon
you’ll find the answer
and the worries that you had
will come to be true
 
’cause you’re starting to see
he never really wanted you to love him
what he felt, it’s gone
and now there seem to be no future at all
 
oooh
 
you get up
he doesn’t follow
he’s somewhat quiet, somewhat strange, he doesn’t say much 
you’re a little closer to the truth
though you already knew it in your heart before
 
your cracked heart
he totally broke it
and the loving moment’s over
but you’ll find another
 

Down at the coffee shop

Down at the coffee shop on the corner
business is kind of slow
I’m trying to get your attention
‘cause I’m eager to let you know
oh how I feel about you
 
down at the coffee shop on the corner
I wait around for my queue
when I go up to the counter
I never know what to do
or what I mean to tell you
 
I know it’s just a fantasy
that wouldn’t hold in theory
oh my mind is playing tricks on me
but a dream this really I wanna believe
so I dream on
 
down at the coffee shop on the corner
time is never on my side
I’m still waiting for that perfect moment
and an other day passes by
oh I missed the chance to try
 
I know it’s just a fantasy
that wouldn’t hold in theory
oh my mind is playing tricks on me
but a dream this really I wanna believe
so I dream on
 
I know it’s just a fantasy
that wouldn’t hold in theory
oh my mind is playing tricks on me
but a dream this really I wanna believe
so I dream on
 
down at the coffee shop on the corner
I’m putting on quite a show
I struggle to get a connection
but I busted my radio
the line is dead
so you will never know
 

Contemplation’s over

when the lights go out at night
you feel tired you feel down
all you hear is your heart beating, beating
 
and the room that you know
suddenly turns dark and cold
no one near you that can here you, when you call
 
so you turn another page looking for another way
contemplation’s over now and when all is said and done
you had the answer long before you knew 
 
what has happened to this town
you feel awkward you feel numb
and your friends they all seem to have disappeared
 
and the clock strikes half past two
it’s too early it’s too soon
you can’t shake the thought of yesterday
 
so you turn another page looking for another way
contemplation’s over now and when all is said and done
you had the answer long before you knew 
 

Will you be gone all summer?

I’m all alone in this town
it’s not the same here anymore
and when the lights go out at night I sit at home
I try your number one more time
 
another day is gone
and I want you to know
 
I don’t care if everyday is sunshine
and I don’t care if all I get is rain
I need to know will you be gone all summer?
‘cause I don’t wanna play the waiting game
 
I walk along the city streets
and try to make up things to do
but I’ve got you stuck on my mind
and I don’t know how to get through to you
 
another day is gone
and I want you to know
 
I don’t care if everyday is sunshine
and I don’t care if all I get is rain
I need to know will you be gone all summer?
‘cause I don’t wanna play the waiting game
I don’t wanna play the waiting game
I don’t care if all I get is rain
 
I want you to know…
 
I don’t care if everyday is sunshine
and I don’t care if all I get is rain
I need to know will you be gone all summer?
’cause I don’t wanna play the waiting game
I don’t wanna play the waiting game
I don’t care if all I get is rain

 

MY NAKED HEART (2010)

A long way from anywhere

two tired eyes, one silhoutte
words on a screen, not ready yet
sad little lie, an empty threat
one shattered dream, hard to forget
 
every footstep, every heartbeat, every sigh,every breath of air,
and you know that, even halfway, your a long way from anywhere
every footstep, every heartbeat, every sigh, every breath of air,
even halfway, your a long way from anywhere
 
no long goodbyes, only regrets
don’t make a scene, don’t be upset
bright city lights, hearts in distress
chasing a dream, hard to forget
 
every footstep, every heartbeat, every sigh, every breath of air,
and you know that, even halfway, your a long way from anywhere
every footstep, every heartbeat, every sigh, every breath of air,
even halfway, your a long way from anywhere
 
one perfect rhyme, one winning bet
one guarantee, is all you get
this is your life, this is your time
to break the line, and don’t look back
 
every footstep, every heartbeat, every sigh,every breath of air,
even halfway you’re a long way from anywhere
every footstep, every heartbeat, every sigh,every breath of air,
and you know that, even halfway, your a long way from anywhere
every footstep, every heartbeat, every sigh, every breath of air,
even halfway, your a long way from anywhere

Will you be gone all summer?

I’m all alone in this town
it’s not the same here anymore
and when the lights go out at night I sit at home
I try your number one more time
 
another day is gone
and I want you to know
 
I don’t care if everyday is sunshine
and I don’t care if all I get is rain
I need to know will you be gone all summer?
‘cause I don’t wanna play the waiting game
 
I walk along the city streets
and try to make up things to do
but I’ve got you stuck on my mind
and I don’t know how to get through to you
 
another day is gone
and I want you to know
 
I don’t care if everyday is sunshine
and I don’t care if all I get is rain
I need to know will you be gone all summer?
‘cause I don’t wanna play the waiting game
I don’t wanna play the waiting game
I don’t care if all I get is rain
 
I want you to know…
 
I don’t care if everyday is sunshine
and I don’t care if all I get is rain
I need to know will you be gone all summer?
’cause I don’t wanna play the waiting game
I don’t wanna play the waiting game
I don’t care if all I get is rain

Suburban street

tuesday night
closing time is getting closer
as we’re talking
you and me
are so alike one step behind
chasing rainbows but
 
maybe tonight
It’ll all be alright
or tomorrow we will meet
on the same suburban street
 
you say that
time is never really on our side
there´s nothing waiting for us
but I, I think every roads a possibility
lets take our chances
 
maybe tonight
It’ll all be alright
or tomorrow we will meet
on the same suburban street
 
maybe tonight
It’ll all be alright
or tomorrow we will meet
on the same suburban street
on the same suburban street

Little sister

you’ve got a pretty face
beautiful eyes
you’ve got a lot of dreams
you´re turning seventeen
 
he’s got a lot of friends
tattoo on his arm
he’s got you in a spin
I see him pulling you in
 
what can I do, what can I say
don’t want you to make a big mistake
little sister
where do you go, I never know
I’m waiting for you to come back home
little sister, little sister
 
you’ve got a way with words
know what to say
and I can never tell
if you only make it up
 
if your love is true
he better be good to you
‘cause if he lets you down
I better not be around
 
what can I do, what can I say
don’t want you to make a big mistake
little sister
where do you go, I never know
I’m waiting for you to come back home
little sister, little sister
 
come back to me
my sister
come back to me
my sister
come back to me
my sister
come back, come back,
come back, come back
 
what can I do, what can I say
don’t want you to make a big mistake
little sister
where do you go, I never know
I’m waiting for you to come back home
little sister, little sister
 
what can I do, what can I say
don’t want you to make a big mistake
little sister
where do you go, I never know
I’m waiting for you to come back home
little sister, little sister
come back to me, my sister

The apartment the cat & the dress

home again,
the apartment, the cat and the dress like I left them
you’re asleep,
a shadow falls on your back, it’s me
 
did anything happen while I was gone?
is everything alright?
can we just pick up where we left,
early tomorrow?
 
I am cold,
the umbrella, the shoes and the bag, by the door
half asleep,
you’re moving slowly across the kitchen floor, to me
 
did anything happen while I was gone?
is everything alright?
can we just pick up where we left,
early tomorrow?
I know it’s all for the best,
’cause I’m too tired to talk
 
I am staring at the clock
and the sun is coming up
it’s been a long busy week
and I should get some sleep
just wanna lay down for a while
be still and feel your heartbeat
 
did anything happen while I was gone?
is everything alright?
can we just pick up where we left,
early tomorrow?
I know it’s all for the best,
so don’t you worry,
let’s just pick up where we left,
’cause I’m to tired to talk

Good morning accidents

I’m not at all myself today
I am the misty morning haze
I think it’s all because of you
the world has got a shade of blue
 
good morning crowded trains
and people running late
good morning vanity and rain
good morning accidents
and broken hearts and pain
who’s gonna save my world today?
 
I used to be invincible
without you I’m nothing at all
now I don’t know what I can do
the world has got a shade of blue
 
good morning crowded trains
and people running late
good morning vanity and rain
good morning accidents
and broken hearts and pain
who’s gonna save my world today?
 
will you? will you? will you? will you?
I put my trust in you
the world has got a shade of blue
 
good morning crowded trains
and people running late
good morning vanity and rain
good morning accidents
and broken hearts and pain
who’s gonna save my world today?
who’s gonna save my world today?

Paper moon

paper moon
let your tiny light be my guide
and the waves will open my eyes
so I can find you
 
and a heart bereft of a breeze
no whispers of quieting trees
it’s just silent now
 
it’s a paper moon
fading out of view
it’s a paper moon
and I miss you
it’s a paper moon
in the shadow’s truth
it’s a paper moon
and I miss you
I miss you
 
paper moon
seen reflected on to the lake
where my little hand you did take
and you kissed me
 
and our dreams got washed to the shore
and we saw no light anymore
we were drifting
 
it’s a paper moon
fading out of view
it’s a paper moon
and I miss you
it’s a paper moon
in the shadow’s truth
it’s a paper moon
and I miss you
I miss you

Sitting at home

10 p.m., I’m sitting at home, watching TV in my room
it is late, a soft summer rain catch my window, daylight is gone
 
and I think about you, I think about you
 
my friends say there’s something strange about you, what if they knew,
I could tell just by one look in your eyes, your heart is true
that’s why I stand up for you, that’s why I stand up for you
and I think about you, think about you
 
you and me, are not from the same part of town
but I don’t care about that
in this world where people don’t get along
you’re a friend
 
and I care about you, I care about you
and I think about you, think about you

My naked heart

before you go, there’s something you should know
will you let me have a moment of your time?
I’m not like you, I’ve never hugged a tree,
and I wouldn’t starve even for a week
 
it’s my naked heart talking to you
it’s my naked heart talking to you
 
before you go, there’s something you should know,
that I never told anybody else
I never read financial magazines
and I never cared for politics at all
 
it’s my naked heart talking to you
it’s my naked heart talking to you
 
before you go, before you close the door
there is something that needs to be said
you think I’m kind and generous at heart
but I never lend money to my friends
 
it’s my naked heart talking to you
it’s my naked heart talking to, talking to you

One way conversation

some people I know
are people like you
telling the same old story
I’ve heard it before
so many times
is there no end to it?
 
it’s a one way conversation
and I don’t wanna listen
anymore
 
some people I know
are always right
it’s like they know what’s comming
and others they talk
go on like you
without the slightest clue
 
it’s a one way conversation
and I don’t wanna listen
anymore
it’s a one way conversation
and I don’t wanna listen
anymore
 
there is no communication here
our connection will remain unclear
you keep talking likt I wanna hear
you keep talking talking in my ear
 
some people I know
are people like me
they like to think before they speak
they stick to the point
know when to stop
but you’re not one of them
 
it’s a one way conversation
and I don’t wanna listen
anymore
it’s a one way conversation
and I don’t wanna listen
anymore
not anymore

Before you fell in love with her

I remember who you were
before you fell in love with her
the rehearsing with the band
writing songs and making plans
 
what happened to your curls,
and your old Ramones t-shirt?
what happened to our oath,
you and me against the world?
 
don’t know what you see in her
do you really love that girl?
don’t you miss the blistered hands,
the songs, the tours, the broken van?
 
what happened to your dreams,
and your torn and faded jeans?
what happened to your curls,
you and me against the world?
 
what happened to your life,
were you too afraid to try?
what happened to your shirt,
and you and me against the world?
 
yeah, I remember who you were,
before you fell in love with her
do you really love that girl?
I don’t know what you see in her

You don’t think I know

minutes move too slow
hours passes by
you don’t think I know
 
halfheartedly you try
holding off good bye
buying some more time
 
I don’t want you to try
I know this is good bye
 
outside a cold wind blow
songs of heartache play
on the radio
 
seasons come and go
days turn into night
don’t you think I know
 
I know we’ve lost our way
we can’t bring back those days
I don’t want you to try
I know this is good bye
good bye
 
minutes move too slow
hours passes by
you don’t think I know
