Track Name: The Beauty of It All
sometimes late at night I wonder
will I ever find my way around this maze?
I find this to be a confusing way of living
and I sometimes feel like screaming

but then when everything seems wrong
an angel comes along
reminding me of the beauty of it all
when everything seems gone
an angel comes along
reminding me to be strong

people half awake half asleep
walking around entangled in complications
while half of the answers are fighting for attention
I cry silently I think quietly
while in my heart I know there´s more than one way

but then when everything seems wrong
an angel comes along
reminding me of the beauty of it all

when everything seems gone
an angel comes along
reminding me to be strong

but then when everything seems wrong
an angel comes along
reminding me of the beauty of it all

when everything seems gone
an angel comes along
reminding me to be strong
Track Name: Don't Be Afraid
don’t be afraid I’m setting you free
don’t be afraid I’m letting you be
ties keep us from being
we belong to our path (alone and apart)
together but not one (two under the shining sun)

to give without wanting I take chances
facing hurt with an open heart

so I let you go, I set you free my friend
find yourself be strong
what will be will be
there is no ultimate end
Track Name: Spread the Word
close your eyes and dream
close your eyes and forget everything
wonder afar, tell me what do you see?
what does the world look like beyond reality?

there is no story
there is no real glory
there is only what you see
when you set your spirit free

look at the stars, look at the constellations
look at the moon, look at the sand
and you will understand

if you and I were born in a place that had no name
it wouldn’t matter if our skins were not the same
if you and I agree that love will set us free
we’ll spread the word, we’ll spread the word
Track Name: Tanango
I slept in the house of the whispering pillow
I got caught on spiderwebs of light
I heard inside myself so many voices
I got caught on spiderwebs of light

like a stone it hits the core
burning down every pore
slowly rotting when you let it stand
it will cry out it will demand

can’t see how to hold it any longer
can’t wait is it getting stronger
just listen to the voice inside you
and let it guide you, let it guide you
Track Name: It's All True
first I want you to know that it’s true, it’s all true
first I want you to know that it’s true, that I love you

and oh how I wish that it would all be good
but now I think you don´t care
and it´s beginning to tear this love

I think that I am being more blind than kind
do you think we can unwind this mess?
Track Name: Whales
In the shadows of my mind
I believe that there´s a higher task
awaiting for me ahead
in the shadows of my mind
I believe that in this life
without these ties we can fly higher

I’ve been searching for the right
thing the right one the right sign
but I see now it’s all here inside of me
I’ve been searching for the right
thing the right one the right sign
but I see now
there’s nowhere to look but here

through and through
navigating this space
I am all alone
I know that now
through and through
navigating this space
I am all alone I know that now

so many things can stop the flow
but I’ll let it show and I’ll let it glow
something tells me that this searching
will never stop
the answers will be as always inside of me

I’ve been searching for the right thing
the right one the right sign
but I see now it’s all here inside of me
I’ve been searching for the right thing
the right one the right sign
but I see now there´s nowhere to look but here

through and through
navigating this space
I am on my own I know that now
through and through
navigating this space
I am all alone I know that now
Track Name: Alone
In the shadows of my mind
I believe that there´s a higher task
awaiting for me ahead
in the shadows of my mind
I believe that in this life
without these ties we can fly higher

I’ve been searching for the right
thing the right one the right sign
but I see now it’s all here inside of me
I’ve been searching for the right
thing the right one the right sign
but I see now
there’s nowhere to look but here

through and through
navigating this space
I am all alone
I know that now
through and through
navigating this space
I am all alone I know that now

so many things can stop the flow
but I’ll let it show and I’ll let it glow
something tells me that this searching
will never stop
the answers will be as always inside of me

I’ve been searching for the right thing
the right one the right sign
but I see now it’s all here inside of me
I’ve been searching for the right thing
the right one the right sign
but I see now there´s nowhere to look but here

through and through
navigating this space
I am on my own I know that now
through and through
navigating this space
I am all alone I know that now
Track Name: Only Make You Cry
how hard is it to open the heart?
how hard is it to let go completely?

side by side we walk and dance and smile
but secretly we fear
cause letting go of you
and everything that your love means to me
is not easy

I think I’ll only make you cry
I think I’ll only make you cry
make you cry

unspoken words
they flash through my eyes
when I see you and I feel what you feel
hurt is always so near

careful with each other please
I just want us both to be released
from each others’ expectations of
what in our minds you and I means

I think I’ll only make you cry think I’ll only make you cry, make you cry
Track Name: The Bubble
what is out there no one knows
preconceptions I behold
I know the universe provides
got to learn to trust the source of all life

in celestial tubes I travel through distances
images of fractal shapes,
conceiving all this time space

I am in the flow in the glow
lost inside the void
astral projection
I have reached no destination
yet I am back where I belong
