Real Friends

I’m a twenty something, captured in between my plans, and my question is
WHY?
There is no room, to spread out my mind?
Set me under pressure - life’s a test, that’s the society
LIE!
But I have found my gap to fill.
I immigrate to the sea, skipping stones, searching for serenity
I - Want all my doubts to get away.
Who can help me? - raise a hand!
I want him to be my friend.
TRY!
To be there, when I'm down.

Will they be there when - I feel sad?
Will they be there when - I need some help?
Will they be there when - I can’t stand?
Will they be there when - I need a friend?

Is all of this a prejudice, or is it okay to miss friendly faces that have been around?
And once in a while, they gave me a smile.
Made me feel all right.

Will they be there when - I feel sad?
Will they be there when - I need some help?
Will they be there when - I can’t stand?
Will they be there when - I need a friend?

Why they only call, when I feel fine?
Does it mean they are no friends of mine?
Why they only call, when I feel fine?
Does it mean I only have good times?

He Knows

You can call him nobody - he is looking ordinary.
He had moved out from Mum and Daddy.
Now his playground is the wide, wild world.
He’s scared of asking where to go.
Where live will lead him, no one knows.
He is in love and so and so.
Although he wants it he can’t hold his love close.
Tell me:
Who can that be?
I tell you he is
Jus like you and me.
He is a
Part of the big we.
And you could be friends - probably.

Now he knows that one day he sun will shine again.
Now he knows, when he accepts to stay, he’s able to fly.
Now he knows that his relationship is no exception.
Now he knows, he want to keep this girl, he will have to compromise.

Yes, he knows what will come.
He’s just a guy, he ain’t a saint.
He will make the same mistakes - and will always think the consequences will change.
He will always need his brakes - when the weekday will still stay that strange.
Who can that be?
I tell you he is
Jus like you and me.
He is a
Part of the big we.
And you could be friends - probably.

Now he knows that one day he sun will shine again.
Now he knows, when he accepts to stay, he’s able to fly.
Now he knows that his relationship is no exception.
Now he knows, he want to keep this girl, he will have to compromise.

Changes

Now everything thing has changed, when I open my eyes and take the time to watch.
How quick the world goes around and what the sound of the wind tells me.
I feel like a blind that see, the sunrise and a raindrop, which touched a tree for the first time.
Why no one knows my name and why it feels I have to start all over again?
In this game called live.

I can change nothing, without straining, but I grow weak in standing strong.
Oh, I feel so wrong and so alone.
And I don’t know how, how to go on.
How to go on?

I walk along a street. Carry out to meet somebody to know.
This day week could be one of the last for me.
Faces walking past me.
I feel free, but empty.
And I couldn’t come true, ‘cause the longer I feel blue, the better I do.
Yes, the better I do.

I can change nothing, without straining, but I grow weak in standing strong.
Oh, I feel so wrong and so alone.
And I don’t know how, how to go on.
How to go on?

Captured Between

Maybe I am not that strong - probably I must be wrong
I’d just mixed up sex and love - it was too much, but it ain't enough

My impression is I have to brake up - but do I really want to stop?
My driving force is manipulation - I know I can’t handle this situation

Just like a breeze of the wind it comes suddenly, and I realized, that pondering is a part of me - I start to humanize my anger, stop being a stranger, of my own emotions.
I’ll take my live in my hands - as much as I can, `because I know one day I’ll understand
What it was good for - what it was good for.

Friends came around to deflect me, but what did I find another she.
I can’t run away, wherever I go, because the problems inside of me I know!

So many decisions, I don’t want to make - there must be a higher power, which thinks I can take all of this, all of this.
It feels so heavy and I can’t describe what it is, what it is that keeps me going on.

Just like a breeze of the wind it comes suddenly, and I realized, that pondering is a part of me - I start to humanize my anger, stop being a stranger, of my own emotions.
I’ll take my live in my hands - as much as I can, `because I know one day I’ll understand
What it was good for - what it was good for.

Phony

Love’s inside of me, is falling down on me - like a waterfall - like a waterfall
In strenuous times like this, everyone is pissed, but what they cannot see,
but what they cannot see is
That they have to take responsibility for their lives - so take a look around
who is coming down.

People walking by, saying Hi - Good bye, but what they really mean,
but what they really mean is
Today I have no time, to listen to what’s on your mind, but they don’t want to say –
no they’re to shy to say it

One day you’ll look at yourself, what will you see?
The person that you wanted to be?
Think about yourself is it true?
Are you sure, that you are that real?
(Oh boy, stay fair)

I’m not perfect, but better than the other ones - this is what you think –
this is what you think
You are king of your home sweet home - can call a big fat car your own –
but you don’t have a friend - you don’t have one friend
You’re alone, there’s no one on your side - tell me the reason, why you’re still looking so pride?

One day you’ll look at yourself, what will you see?
The person that you wanted to be?
Think about yourself is it true?
Are you sure, that you are that real?

Stay fair, stay fair - there will be days you’ll need a helping hand…
So take care, that someone will be there - someone will be there…

Life Sometimes Is...

Going outside, a rainy weather blowing in my face.
But nothing can harm me whether, world is fooling me, or not.
Everywhere so beautiful colors, even in a dirty puddle.
Laughing loudly, while the rain tickles me.
So come, enjoy this beauty.

Life’s not easy, all the time.
It seems as if nothing succeeds.
So take it easy and clean your mind.
Make a step forward and move your feet.

I’m dreaming of a roof over my head and comfortable bed, to lie in.
That will be the proofs my mama said, show you that you had win.
One day I had to sleep on the floor
Remember this night, it was so cold.
But I was happy as a man could be, ‘cause I was walking down the road and sad to me.

Life’s not easy, all the time.
It seems as if nothing succeeds.
So take it easy and clean your mind.
Make a step forward and move your feet.

Black Swan

I’m living right confused today now,
I’m tempted to pray how,
everything could happen so suddenly?
Because recently I had a Job and
recently I had a place to live.

I don’t where my live has gone – and
Every face looked so bad to me – I
feel like a black swan, suppressed by everyone.
But one day I’ll fight back.

I cleaned my house, tried to become sober.
The rear tears myself into pieces.
And I just can’t stand them and order a drink
To forget my reality.

I don’t where my live has gone – and
Every face looked so sad to me – I
feel like a black swan, suppressed by everyone.
But one day I’ll fight back.

I don’t where my live has gone – and
Every face looked so bad to me – I
feel like a black swan, suppressed by everyone.
But one day I’ll fight back.

Babe

me crazy.
I like the way she takes care of me, but on the other hand she makes me feel free.
She’s just my babe, my beautiful lady.
Yes she is my babe, oh she’s my lady.

And when my babe loves me, everything’s all right.
Than I don’t have to fight anymore, that’s for sure.
And when my babe is mad on me, the world looks so sad.
Everything that I had is worthless at this time.
Hahaha.

What more can I say to you about her?
Maybe that my babe is an incredible lover!
I fell in love with her many years ago.
I had so many girls but so am I now.
'only want my babe, I want just my lady.
I only want you babe.

And when my babe loves me, everything’s all right.
Than I don’t have to fight anymore, that’s for sure.
And when my babe is mad on me, the world looks so sad.
Everything that I had is worthless at this time.
Hahaha.

Inspite of All

Nobody told me how difficult live could.
Gradually problems are falling down on me.
I don’t know anything about, skills to grow up.
I’m running into troubles – trying to get on the top
of myself knowledge.
I try to find a bridge which
Leads to a new home – I know I have to go alone.
Alone.

Like leaves in autumn my optimism starts to drift away.
Nobody stands beside me and my dark thoughts start to play.
A horrible game inside my brain,
that I can’t understand.
I don’t know how to react to my environment.
My close environment.

In the highest degree loneliness,
In spite of all my friends.
More as before so depressed,
time and again.

For all my outer strange,
I wish I could sit on a plane – fly away.
Everything makes me sick, there must be a trick,
because day by day I can’t handle it.
I long for somebody, who escorts my way.
I won’t find him, no matter,
but try not to stay – still.

In the highest degree loneliness,
In spite of all my friends.
More as before so depressed,
time and again.

Mirror

I follow people just to find out who I am inside of them.
But all I can see is a mirror, filled with nothing than loneliness –
what kind of a process, that I go trough.
Who can tell me who I am?
Who can tell me where I came from,
and where can I find him.
Does he know how to solve my situations,
Give me more confidence and answer all of my questions.

Oh no – where could I go
Oh no – how could I know

Now I am older, but where is my knowledge about social relations.
I thought I’ll achieve a higher level with the years, but I feel like a child.
I feel so helpless and search for somebody who takes my hand
Who can explain, that I can understand the sense of life.
The sense of being.

Oh no – where can I go
Oh no – how can I know

Just For Today

I’m going for a walk again, thinking about when the weather changes –
from dark into clear light.
Should I try to talk again, what could I say to make them understand –
Or should I stay quiet.

It is okay, because just for today I’ve got the power to stay down on earth.
With both feed on the ground
No needs for ups and downs
I’ve found a golden way,
just for today.

I think what I’m going to do won’t be true,
but I accept what I’m going to say will be okay.

Try to open up myself, let me take away from the sound of a bird,
but my mind won’t listen.
All my thoughts are about
All that things, and all that stuff that seams so important to me –
and we all know it’s not – but

It is okay, because just for today I’ve got the power to stay down on earth.
With both feed on the ground
No needs for ups and downs
I’ve found a golden way,
just for today.

By My Side

When I try to think about you, I try to find your picture in my soul –
I don’t know how to imagine your beauty, too.
So what can I do?
To remember all the good times.
The late coffees in bars – where we where in heaven, close to the stars,
Close to the Moon.
We where listen to the ocean, not with standing the late afternoon.
And I look up to you, now I see what I saw
And what I thought was

Baby, please be a part of my live.
There’s always peace inside of me,
when you’re by my side.
When you’re by my side.

I didn’t know what it means to be free, just being.
And I didn’t know what it means to bet rue, before being with you.

Step by step our relationship grows.
Not to fast, but also not to slow.
I like you showing your secret smile,
it makes me laughing in the inside,
for a long – a long while.
Where did you come from?
I knew you for a long time, but why
Now you’re in my mind?
You’re all I can find.

Baby, please be a part of my live.
There’s always peace inside of me,
when you’re by my side.
When You’re by my side.

When you’re by my side, than everything’s all right.
