Lyrics

Hey You
 
Hey You
Who's looking for a better place
Hey You
Who's not afraid of crooked ways
So many names will never answer if you call
So many hands will never catch you if you fall

Staring at the blinding light of distant wonder
You realise your way turned out to be much longer
Empty pockets hide your hands
The holy coat – your weak defense
The book of days pulls down your bag
Quick look behind, ten steps ahead

Hey You
Who's counting down the nights and days
Hey You
Your dusty clock's slowed down its pace
So many names you didn't answer when they called
So many hands you turned away to break and fall

Staring at the blinding light of distant wonder
You realise your way turned out to be much longer
Empty pockets hide your hands
The holy coat – your weak defense
The book of days pulls down your bag
Quick look behind, ten steps ahead

Metropolitan Child
 
Early morning – my resurrection
The mirror shows me no perfection
Some caffeine – accelerator
Some nicotine – negotiator

These are the parts of my exciting adventure
Of being a child of metropolitan nature
These are the parts of my exciting adventure
These are the parts of my exciting adventure
 
Alarms and bells, no spam protection
The neighbourhood throws accusations
Red-amber-green – my navigation
The bitten apple – my decoration
 
These are the parts of my exciting adventure
Of being a child of metropolitan nature
These are the parts of my exciting adventure
These are the parts of my exciting adventure
 
The marble face of imagination
The clicking heels of inspiration
Greet my existence, salute my passion
This brand new day – new celebration

These are the parts of my exciting adventure
Of being a child of metropolitan nature
These are the parts of my exciting adventure
These are the parts of my exciting adventure

Haunted By The Time
 
It's always in a rush
It occupies my thoughts
It will not pay attention
To my appealing words
It makes me run like hell
And roughly calls the shots
It haunts me with the sound
Of march of ticking clocks

And I still drag my burden
Towards the edge of days
The way is so complicated
The shoes don't leave a trace
My head is full of letters
That never will be sent
Because they're scratched by the words
You wouldn't understand

To The Flown
 
I didn't see your leaving
I didn't hear your cry
When everyone had stopped believing
You didn't loose the will to fight
 
I see your face of stone
Above the line of your last day
You're flown away, you're gone
I hope you hear what I say
 
I drown my naked feelings
I don't want you to see me cry
And when my heart stops believing
You strengthen up my will to fight

I see your face of stone
Above the line of your last day
You're flown away, you're gone
I hope you hear what I say

No Meaning
 
There is no meaning
In this deal
Your mind is full
Of complications
It's hard to see
You're hard to feel
It's hard to guess
Your destination
 
Your love is not enough
Your love is not enough
Your love is not enough
Your love is not enough

You're wrapped around me
You hurt within me
I'm taken in
With admiration
You locked the door
And hid the key
I can break your spell
I cannot break frustration

Your love is not enough
Your love is not enough
Your love is not enough
Your love is not enough

The War Of Our Worlds
 
It's late now
We're wrapped in darkness
The moon behind you
Is gifting me with blindness
You look indifferent
You talk suspicious
I'm standing quiet
Collecting wishes
 
You're flame, I'm thunder
We're treading on and slipping under
My broken heart in your frozen palms
We're so close, so far apart

Your darkest soul is playing innocent
Seems like you hear but never listen
And even if I break the distance
I'll get defeated by your resistance

You're flame, I'm thunder
We're treading on and slipping under
My broken heart in your frozen palms
We're so close, so far apart

Our "Forever"
 
Lights and voices everywhere
The wind is playing with your your hair
Dancing colours on your face
Spinning with your velvet grace
We're going to your favourite place
 
Noisy crowds of lonely hearts
Some petrified, some torn apart
They're squinting back at your wide smile
Freezing glances for a while
Feeling happy for a while
 
You and me and our “Forever”
You and me and our “Forever”
 
Words and laughs and dreams to share
You're drowning sweetly in my care
Sneaky hands and fearless lips
Artistic tremble of your hips
We're going further on our trip
 
No start, no path, no destination
No time, no terms, no obligations
We are allowed to be pathetic
Unseal, unwrap and open wide
Our box of chocolate “nostalgetics”

You and me and our “Forever”
You and me and our “Forever”
You and me and our “Forever”
You and me and our “Forever”

Back Home
 
My boat is setting sale
The chaos of the storm has cleared my way
And time won't wait
It won't slow down if I hesitate
It gives much less than I can take
So I come aboard to face my fate
 
With feelings blunted
With waves surrounded
I'm frozen staring
At your horizon
 
I hope one day
All dark and clammy fears will crawl away
Although I'm late
And I did nothing to be loved
I drowned the words I should had told
My weary eyes still see your light

With feelings blunted
With waves surrounded
I'm frozen staring
At your horizon
