Track Name: Almost Sun '75
Almost Sun '75

I was reading my book without not noticing you
And said “Girl, look the day is begging for your gold”
It's irrelevant, I was almost blind to see
So easy in love, like begging on your knees

Be like the sun like I remember
'75 a year I never knew
But my daddy said it was a perfect year
My mother said it was extraordinair
I wish it's going to be like '75

I crossed the street and counted both my feet
And girl you look so pretty, though the sun blinded my eyes
It's astonishing, almost blind to see
so easy in love, like begging on my knees

Be like the sun....


Be like the sun like I remember
'75 a year I never knew
I heard a song singing it was so cool
the papers read it fooled a many fool
I wish it's going to be like '75
Track Name: Jazzy New Feeling
Can someone tell me what is going on?
I’m feeling so strange, I’m feeling happy
It is not easy to be honest with yourselves
It’s not my habit to let my feelings show

It’s just the way that you have made me feel
I can’t resist your touch, it’s calling me
I cannot leave you here and myself in despair
I will not rest until we’re satisfied

I can feel my heart is longing for your beat
I can see your smile on my face
Every minute without you feels like a day
A day in witch we have no sunrise

Can someone tell me what is happening to me?
Look at my face, I think I’m smiling
It is not easy to be, but I think we are
I feel like never going to let you go
Track Name: Is There Anybody Out There?
Is there anybody out there
Can you hear my song
Can anybody see me
Everything has gone wrong

Could I be mistaken
Or be misunderstood
Is somebody joking
Will it turn my mood

I can tell there's no-one here with me tonight
Somebody please tell me a story
Could someone please turn off the light

Is there anybody out there
Would you be so kind
to hold my hand sometimes
I’m alone in my mind

I can hear me crying
Are you crying too
I know for I haven’t told you
I am just like you

I admit that I am scared to be alone
Leave the lights on when you leave, leaving me alone
I can get no sleep, without this song

Is there anybody out there
I am leaving now
So would you, when you are about to leave
close the door and turn off the lights...
Track Name: Feels Like a Good Day
This sun is shining, it never seemed more clear
I play my song wearing no clothes
This sky is blue, no clouds are passing by
Feels like a good day, you and I

Just like summer, this rain is wet but cold
Your voice keeps singing in my mind
I am not strolling anymore, I like it what you do
Feels like a good day, me and you

This morning I woke up the rain stopped falling
This dark grey sky suddenly cleared
Some beautiful smile, it must have scared those clouds
They all but you did disappear

Keep on smiling, your face is like a flower
Looking at you it makes me happy
Captured by your smile, it never sets me free
Feels like a good day, you and me

This morning I woke up the rain stopped falling
This dark grey sky suddenly cleared
Some beautiful smile, it must have scared those clouds
They all but you did disappear

I am really liking what I feel
I guess this feeling will last forever
I feel like never ever going to leave
Track Name: Where the Skies End
I could speak up when you did hurt me
Could have lied in blinded times
Sure, I’ve seen you waiting
At the gates of paradise

Listen to the stars they speak
The milky way is underneath
Could you cry for lost ones to be found
Take me to places where no sky would ever end
I can feel no love nor hate nor real intend

I’ve seen myself without a mirror
I’ve seen you without my eyes
I heard your words without listening
Because I knew that they were lies

I can’t find a place to hide
Except for the sky, but it’s too wide
I can cry for help but never be found
Take me to a place where hurt can’t cut right thru my heart
Blinded by the light the sun and stars

Hey, I can see what you're trying to do to me

I could have cried when you did leave me
Could have never got you strong
But I stood strong as I pretended
That all you did was wrong

Dream along into the clouds
The stars above and all their crowds
Let the good rain fall down on my face
Leaving for places where no sky will ever end
I don’t want no love or hate or real intend
Track Name: End of the Day
Yesterday was a new day, I got up early to work
And I told the sun to start shining,
and as it did I knew nothing could go wrong
But it did, cause out of the blue you came in
looking so beautiful, looking so fine,
you even started smiling. -The smile ran away from my face-,
as I realized you’d be gone by the end of the day


Late at night I start walking, walking towards the sun,
Cause I thought all forms of kindness would reach out for daylight,
And being so warm, I got back, I’m missing my baby or somebody new, for crying out loud.
I even started smiling. -The smile ran away from my face-,
as I realized you'd be gone by the end of the day

It feels just like sleeping without never wake up
Everyday is like dreaming, but there's no sweat or blush
and now that the days are gone it feels like it's all been done or said
at the end of the day


I should have left when it hurt me,
it should have never gone wrong
But I care too much for a stranger,
and after all a better day is in your own hands
But my hands are playing, playing everyday
I even started smiling. -smiling went away from my face-,
as I'd realized you'd be gone by the end of the day
Track Name: 7th Avenue Song
She was the little girl that tried to be old
Ignored all the things she was told
She looked upon this world and she wondered
what she'd be

Living life in the fast lane
eventually will end in flames
The taste of love the simple way must be so sweet
is what she believed

Ooh, she was cold and lonely
She and her heart were broke

It's a hard life on the street
She sold herself as being treat
laying on her back she advertised her soul
and her body

Payed price began to show
Summertime turned into snow
Every single sex-appealed man made her high
living in this lie

Ooh, she was cold and lonely
she and her heart were broke
she called out to the world and its failure but no-one seemed to care

Every night it's just the same old story
brings me down as soon I start to worry
can't you hear the sounds produced by pressure
Ignoring everything we ought to treasure
I can't take it anymore

Every stage has got a higher level
But no-one seems to know just how to get there
Every night is like a siren calling
Every step you try to keep from falling
I can't take it anymore

I can't take it anymore
It's a faithful world we live in today
They say it's alright
It's just how the chances got divided

One night she laid undressed
a pocket-knife in her chest
She couldn't keep the customer satisfied
that's how she died
Track Name: Missing You
I'd like to see your face again
not on a picture, but in real life if I could, I surely would
It's a mixture of sadness and a fine but indescribable mood

I'm missing you,
Every second becomes an hour, and I realise that's the power of loving you

I'd like to hear your voice again, not on the phone but in my ear
Telling you softly all the things I'd like to hear
My mind is clear, I'd like to tell you all the thoughts I have
before I go to sleep, it's so sincere

I'm missing you,
Every second becomes an hour, and I realise that's the power of loving you
I'm missing you,
As my feelings getting deeper, let me go to sleep and dream all night of you
I'm missing you,
Every second becomes an hour, and I realise that's the power of loving you
I'm missing you

Let me know that you love me, even though you're miles away
Call me every night to tell me, even though there's nothing else to say
Let me be the one who waits for you, and I can tell we will be fine
Ooh, we will, we will be fine
Track Name: Who Am I Fooling?
Too much to do, too much to say,
Too late for sorry
One more day I cry for you
I hope you’ll hear me

Where is the rain, what is the pain
where are the words that heal my hurt
I feel so different
Are you the same?

Who am I fooling?
You and me and everything is true
Dreaming any dream I use to dream
Every night I’m thinking still of you

What is your goal, what is my savior
Can’t we turn back in time and let our feelings show
There’s so much changing
Maybe for good

Maybe for good, maybe for better
Maybe in time I will learn to show
I can be loving
Loving you

Who am I fooling?
You and me and everything is true
Dreaming any dream I use to dream
Every night I’m thinking still of you


Who am I fooling?
You and me and everything is true
Dreaming any dream I use to dream
Every night I’m thinking still of you
And every day I think I still love you
Track Name: Call Me Free
Yesterday someone asked me
How blind have I become
Closing my eyes he showed me
Now all my tears are gone
I do not dare to whisper
Hear me say these words out loud
I felt free

Yesterday someone told me
All of his dreams were gone
He had no luck in finding out
That he had already won
He closed his eyes smiling
Just a simple man
But free, he felt free....

I see all those smiling faces
I don’t know what they mean to me
I see all those crying faces
waiting to be set free
free

Yesterday someone promised
Tomorrow would be a better day
Closing our eyes in blindness
Nothing has changed today
All of our dreams still shattered
No place to call our own
But free

I see all those crying faces
I don’t know what they mean to me
looking for change and better places
Though it still looks the same to me
We’re free, call me free
Track Name: Do You Want?
I see you smiling at me, it's such a pleasant thought
It's overwhelming me, and you're cute, you really are
I think it's time for some action sing along with the guitar

sing:
Heey a eey a eey a eey
Heey a eey a eey a eey

You see me walking towards you, it's such a breathtaking scene
can't take my eyes off of you, do you know what I mean

Do you want, do you see, do you feel the same, like me
Do you want what I need, won't you come over

I feel you're closer to me, it's like my knees getting weak
as if you cast a spell on me
(won't you get any closer, baby) what you say?
(won't you get any closer, baby) to me

Do you want, do you see, do you feel the same, like me
Do you want what I need, won't you come over

It's a new day, I feel so surreal
It's a new day, it's you I still feel
It's so sweet

Do you want, do you see, do you feel the same, like me
Do you want what I need, won't you come over
Track Name: Never Understood
I can find the answers of the questions that I've never asked
I can tell the reason of a casualty but not its meaning
Everything I say, everything I do, everything I say I cannot do

I can find a loved-one, but I can't love anyone I'm finding
I can tell the truth out there but not inside my mind
Everything I love, never is enough, everything that I'll be dreaming of

I can feel the raindrops falling
Feels like I can touch the sky
No more questions no more crawling
Say goodbye, say goodbye, say goodbye
goodbye

Everything I thought is gone away
Everything I dreamed destroyed by day
Everything I pray, everything I say, everything I hoped for wasn't me

I can sing you songs about the things of life that really matter
I can play you music that will bring you to your dreams
More I cannot do, some may pray to You, everything is never understood
