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

Last Day On The Moon
 
In the curdled silence of December
We speak the words we won't remember
The eclipse of lips will stop to linger
No lunar dust between our fingers
Two lines of footprints on the surface
Will question scientists – who was this?
We'll hide the embers of our fire
In the deepest crater of desire
 
No stars above, no waves below
Our moves will never be so slow
Their telescopes will stop to follow
The dark side will stay lost in sorrow
Before our glances stop to glow
And disillusion starts forgetting
On the highest cliff by the lunar sea
We'll sit and watch – the Earth is setting

We'll sit and watch – the Earth is setting

The Earth is setting

 

We speak the words we won't remember
We speak the words we won't remember

We speak the words we won't remember
We speak the words we won't remember

​Bedtime Story

 

You are cast away
From everything you had been promised
By the face of love

 

Another day
Had turned to gray then faded away
Like the face of love

 

The stars are drawing pictures
For you
Of artificial features
In blue
The stars are drawing pictures
For you
Of artificial features
In blue

 

The surf will rock
Your cradle boat and hiss you lies
About the face of love

 

The time will tell
Unveil the truth and show you a demon
Hidden behind the face of love

 

The stars are drawing pictures
For you
Of artificial features
In blue
The stars are drawing pictures
For you
Of artificial features
In blue

Love Song
 
I can tell the Moon 
To push the sea away
To steal the treasures from the deep
And lay them at your feet
 
I can tell the sky 
To loose the rain
To wash away
Your darkest fears and pain
 
I can tell the wind
To calm the storm
For waves to disappear
And clear your way back home
 
Or tell the Sun
To smile your face
Light up your every wish
And lead you to a better place
 
If only you surrender
If only you surrender
