Track Name: TRY [2307]
pride · will have a fall · your apathy · only distantly
perceived · you are · almost incertain · hardly unbroken

[Chorus]
try to believe and try to change it all
try to imagine · but you should try at all

games · inside your head · no more rules · for those tricky fools
warm cradle · of uncertainty · collision inside · no chance to hide

[Chorus]
try to believe and try to change it all
try to imagine · but you should try at all

something in your mind –awakening memories lost in a dream
something in your heart – makes sense to be thoughtful, spread your wings and fly

all the dreams you’ve buried once…should become reality
time has come just strike the bell … and everything would feel so well
slowly, slowly, take your time, trust the tears you haven’t shed
only, only love may heal a young boy’s aching head

what you think · you may need means just nothing at all
clear the disk · and get up on the floor
all you need · is your soul is a heart
to believe in a glorious restart
face the chance · get yourself a release
draw the curtain and light up the peace
burn your books · break the walls and just try
make this moment · the best in your life
all you need · is your soul is your heart
why don’t you just get off your ass and make it gonna start

[Chorus]
try to believe and try to change it all · try to imagine · but you should try at all
try to forgive you · try to grab the chance · try to wake up now · try to understand you should try
Track Name: NOT THE ONE [2910]
someone told me lately
that you have left the city
without a word or a message on my phone
so I called you late at night just to be sure you are alright
your voice sounds reserved like a stranger travelling through
miles and miles away, still a doubt you’d stay

I’m not the one to tell you the truth
but please be sure I’ll wait for you
It’s your turn to choose, no time to lose
I’ll be right there and you should never forget that

I don’t wanna wear you down
but I’m worrying about you
you’re so secretive
but what moves your life?
can you still look yourself in the eye?

I’m not the one to tell you the truth
but please be sure I believe in you
it’s your chance to choose don’t be confused
I’ll be right there and you should never forget that

look in the mirror and you will see a heart that still believes in a perfect kind of dream
just inhale the spirit and make a wish come true within your reach
just be true to who you are, you feel, just turn the reel
there’s one more truth than the one you’ve learned to choose
keep the faith and keep your love, believe in who you are, don’t drift away, believe in you

I’m not the one to tell you the truth
but please be sure I’ll wait for you
it’s your turn to choose no time to lose
I’ll be right there and you should never
forget that – I’m not the one
Track Name: SAKURA TREE [2002]
all the blossoms on the tree
shining pink and blue
children dancing in the street
dancing without shoes
tiny little butterflies one for every child
flying round for all the times
over land and sea

standing at the waterfront looking at the sea
all so quiet, world full of peace
send your dreams to me
under the sakura tree deep down underground
your heart’s still beating there for me
a treasure of our love

blossoms will blow away
clouds running fast
a pheasant in the street
a plumage so beautiful
shining in the sun
in any shade of colour
the rain is gone, the rain is gone

raindrops may fall again
bury our hands in the sand
raindrops like tears in the sky
rays of the sun like a blink of your eye

a blink of your eye
the touch of your voice 
the sound of your skin
the smell of your look
again and again
the breath of your hair
the grace of your hand
the face of your lips
again and again

blossoms will blow away
clouds running fast, so fast
under sakura trees
we will meet again one day

the love I could give
the life we could live
is buried down there
here under the trees
the kisses we’d kiss
the dreams we would dream
your hand on my skin
your looks on my heart
I feel everything 
we will meet again
an old melody
our ghost memory
Track Name: BLURRY ROAD [0611]
falling stars – a secret wish
an unknown thought, something you still miss
realize – only a blink away
eyes keep closed at the end of the day
stardust itching in my mind
no borderline between space and time
an impact of an asteroid
a crush into my thoughts
your eyes are opened wide

my life is an open road it’s paved with the stones of hope
but all the good intentions lead to disunity
destination is out of sight the sun’s shining far too bright
a dazzling light, a blurry view my visions fade away

a brighter star will disappoint me soon
I walk on alone to find a deeper gloom
the lights are thrown on empty streets
an endless black horizon – a freedom bittersweet

my life is an open road, it’s paved with the stones of hope
but all the good intentions lead to disunity
destination is out of sight the sun’s shining far too bright
a dazzling light, a blurry view my visions fade away

my life is an open road, I’m driving it on my own
and all your good intentions won’t change my destiny
I open the top to feel the wind of a summer breeze
I raise my arms up to the sky and touch the heaven’s tent
this highway is bittersweet, do you know what freedom needs?
my life is an open road
Track Name: ANYWAY [2201]
some careless words and hopes, just play hide and seek
your ego at the wheel of a sinking ship
this friendship of destruction, crushed at last,
we’re gathering the shards, leaving mental scars
faith needs blame and a sacrifice
sinless stones in a senseless fight
what means trust at all
if we keep our eyes closed anyway?

anyway · getaway · anyday · play your game

erecting walls, painting signs
lock the door, drink some wine
no way out, and there’s no way in trapped yourself in this labyrinth
you just tried with no compromise
keep dreams tight, try to stabilise
what you build up, where you’re caged in
each and everyday

everyday · run away · anyway · same old blame

try to treat you like an innocent child.
try to get through to you, please don’t try to hide
breakup and drain the cup or open the door that you have shut
drown in the sea of trust, just try to swim, you won’t get lost
you won’t get lost
Track Name: REPRODUCTION [2809]
no gates between us
no lights can ever stop us
between the stations
into the night out of my mind but I still breathe
preserving time

watchin’ the crowd in motion
a dark and faceless ocean
do they know I won’t vanish?
flashing lights, collapsing signs out in the dark

riding on trains and caught between sides – don’t forsake me
memories are fading, conclusions are waiting – don’t forsake me
uncertain tears

I’ll try to stay the course
this stormy sea seems changeless
I’m wavering back and forth
and gravity is fading
closed gates, delayed arrival
uncertain times tonight
lighthouse keeper, gateway cheater, I’m out of line with my feelings

riding on trains and caught between sides – don’t forsake me
memories are fading, conclusions are waiting – don’t forsake me
uncertain tears, I’m caught between the lives
all memories so slowly fading away tonight

chasing time, and you’re mine

riding on trains and caught between sides, don’t forsake me
memories are fading, conclusions are waiting don’t forsake me
uncertain tears, I’m caught between the lives, all memories so slowly fading away tonight,fade away tonight, fade away tonight, we may fade away tonight, but I know that you’ll be mine, and I hope that you’ll be mine
Track Name: DUST AND LIGHT [0307]
there is a time when everything seems to be broken
all worries unspoken and your soul’s tumbling down
a house of cards is collapsing into a fire
of feared desire – the ashes drift away

could you still imagine
there must be a light outside
like a roaring silence
like a bolt in a blue sunny sky
but you keep on running
in search of a long lost time
but you must draw a line
between reality and signs – you will shine

turn on the lights, you’d be alive to make up your mind
all you should know is written below – nothing’s what it used to be
don’t be afraid, you know that we may have found ourselves again
all that I know it’s gonna grow if you still feel it

undefined masses in a sea of stormy sand may light up your fire but in the end always the end
the creeps may spot you and the riders will face the storm
all karma policed, anaesthetize your dreams

you’d better face it, you’d better believe it
that there’s no release without grief and no love without needs
your chance to take it, your turn to make it, you should try, reproduction inside

turn on the lights you’d be alive to make up your mind
all you should know is written below – nothing’s what it used to be
don’t be afraid, you know that we may have found ourselves again and again
all that I know it’s gonna grow the future may take all of the burden from your soul
you can let it go, you can let it go, if you still feel

somebody will wait for you at the end of a long lost highway and perhaps it is someone that you’ve already known, but so unknown – close your eyes and exhale all the worries that burden your soul – there’s another love and another life that waits just for you — you seek and you’ll find a way – no doubts, just try – your soul is alive – no need to fight – just a peace of mind – wake up – and all the pain is gone
Track Name: LOSING TRACKS [2301]
so you say it is over – I still stay calm to think it over
your hands folded on your knees – your eyes swimming in a black sea
no promise left to satisfy you

give me your hands let me dry all your tears
when did we lose the track did we awake from a dream?

what can I do to revive our love? what can we do to believe in us?

give me your hands let me dry all your tears
when did we lose the track? did we awake from a dream?
understand – compromise – realize – take my hand

when the earth opened up we were already falling
like a crush in the head, like a stitch in the heart


but there’s something uniting us like a light that still burns through the night
like a fire inside of us, I know nothing could cut these ties

and you throw it all away cause you believe in a true and perfect love
how do you know it for sure a broken heart can’t fall apart
give me your hands let me dry all your tears
when did we lose the track? did we awake from a dream?

loving you – every day – today – every way
I’m just loving you – just keep going on – fall in love with me – just again
