Headin' For the City

Left my life in Tijuana
Lost my luck in Ashbury
Made a fortune in Havana
where I dumped my misery

Now I'm headin' for the city
to meet my destiny
Yes, I'm headin' for the city
to meet my destiny

Left my love in Atlanta
Took a plane to Birmingham
Broke my heart in Vienna
Got it back in Amsterdam

Now I'm headin' for the city
to meet my destiny
I keep headin' for the city
to meet my destiny
to meet my destiny

Quit playin' poker in Las Vegas
No more trips to Miami
I did my time down in Memphis
where I left a part of me
I left that part of me behind

Now I'm headin' for the city
to meet my destiny
I keep headin' to that city
to meet my destiny

Find Me

I often walk out of the line
You stay behind in summer
Your voice I hear while you don't speak, somehow
Trapped inside, forever

You always knew how to find me
You always did, so one more time please

So, come on and find me
'Cause I lost myself along the way
Find me, help me brighten up this inner gray
Find me, I don't know how you'll get me back on track
But I'll find my way back

I've got memories of a life
I would sing for you in summer
There's no rhythm in me now
Your love is all that I am after

I can't see no lighter day
Can you make gray white, I wonder

So, come on and find me
'Cause I lost myself along the way
Find me, help me brighten up this inner gray
Find me, I don't know how you'll get me back on track
But I'll find my way back

Our bleeding hearts were so close to each other
Tears were falling on the bed
We would cry just to cry without reason
Now it feels like we never met

Find me, 'cause I lost myself along the way
Find me, help me brighten up this inner gray
Find me, I don't know how you'll get me back on track
But I'll find my way back

Tomorrow Will Be Mine

You know I will get there and I will be on time
I will make that mountain mine
I keep on staring at the road without an end
Waiting for the sun around the bend

I keep moving to that border line
Where the golden earth will meet the purple sky
I keep on moving to that finish line
Knowing that tomorrow will be mine

Trying to hold on, praying I'll be strong
and for luck to come along
The strength within me reassures me, feel no pain
We're going nowhere once again

I keep moving to that border line
Where the golden earth will meet the purple sky
I keep on moving to that finish line
Knowing that tomorrow will be mine

If I win I'll be king in my time
Split the sea
Feel divine
Turning water into wine

I keep on moving to that border line
Where the golden earth will meet the purple sky
I keep on moving to that finish line
Knowing that tomorrow will be mine

Orange Glow

Well it's one for the other, with a voice full of fire, we will sing for victory
There's no-one who'll stop us, 'cause they won't believe the strength of you and me

With the heart of a lion we will fight till the end, bare naked as it can be
We'll tear down the walls and march into their cities
They'll surrender by what they'll see

We're bringing the love while we're spreading the word with our little big army
There's no time to waste, grab your things, don't be late
Come on and follow me

Follow the orange glow
Follow the orange glow

We travel the world, my sisters and brothers, to meet our destiny
And wherever we go, while we're crossing the globe, it leaves a mark in history

We're bringing the love and we're spreading the word with our little big army
There's no time to waste, grab your things, don't be late
Come on and follow me

Follow the orange glow
Follow the orange glow

We're bringing the love and we're spreading the word with our little big army
There's no time to waste, grab your things, don't be late
Come on and follow me

Follow the orange glow

Dressed in Black

Hear the water come
See the water dripping in
See the water slide
Feel it sliding on my chin

Got no reason to wipe it off
Don't know where to begin
Today I'm dressed in black again

Well I spilled so much water
Still there is so much that remained
It's for the occasions when I dress up and bring you away

Got no reason to wipe it off
Don't know where to begin
Today I'm dressed in black again

And I can't remember when or even when my eyes were dry
I just let the water wash them clean and let it stay behind my eyes

I got every thing I want in life
I'm everything I wanted to be
Still the water comes sometimes
I just let it set me free

Got no reason to wipe it off
Don't know where to begin
Today I'm dressed in black again

Pink Flamingo

All the lights went out the other day
Nothing left that I can say
No more tears to fill my eyes
Only feelings left that I despise
But I don't mind, no I don't mind

I'm feeling stronger but I'm holding back
I don't want this brightness turning to black
What you say I will believe
But I can't deny how it makes me feel
But I don't mind, no I don't mind

I can't stand the feeling of letting you down
I'm standing on familiar ground

Pink Flamingo, in the corner of my eye
Pink Flamingo, standing in my window
Together with her by my side

I keep forgetting what is said
But I will never lose my head
I keep forgetting what is real
But the pictures make me feel that I don't mind
No, I don't mind

I'm asking for the road I know
I used to be in control

Pink Flamingo, in the corner of my eye
Pink Flamingo, standing in my window
Together with her by my side

Hold On A While

Do you remember last night
All of the things that we said
They didn't seem wrong at that time
Hold on a while

I still remember your face
And that same look in your eyes
Now baby let's give this a chance
Hold on a while

Hold on a while
Forget everything I'm gonna say
Now baby, I don't wanna fight
Hold on a while

I think tomorrow will change
everything we did wrong
Now honey let's put things aside
And hold on a while

Hold on a while
Forget everything I'm gonna say
Now baby, I don't wanna fight
Hold on a while

Do you remember last night
all of the things that we said
Now baby let's give this a chance
And hold on a while

Hold on a while
Forget everything I'm gonna say
Now baby I don't wanna fight
Hold on a while
Hold on a while

Oceanside

Once in a lifetime
You will come to a place
Where nothing else matters
But just a smile on your face

And everyone around you can go up in smoke
You feel completely at ease and you don't wanna go

Take me back to Oceanside
Take me back to that pure delight
Take me back one day
So I can find what I left behind

And it's one of those mornings
You don't wanna get up
Just take your thoughts
To this place that you love

And everything around you will go up in smoke
Think of white sand and blue seats and a bar that won't close

Take me back to Oceanside
Take me back to that pure delight
Take me back one day
So I can find what I left behind

The sand burns your feet, while we're drinking the wine
Sunlight let's you twinkle, can't believe that you're mine
The band is playing 'Cucurucucu'
I'm forgetting everyday life
When I'm there with you

Take me back to Oceanside
Take me back to that pure delight
Take me back one day
So I can find what I left behind

Lay You Down

Tonight I started dreaming of a love that used to be
I think that it's all over
There's nothing left for me
But still I want another love that is so crazy
Another love who turns me on
A girl who stays beside me and never runs

Today will never find me
Yes, today is dead and gone
Tomorrow will do nothing
'Cause you won't come along
And now I want some else to make me happy
Who will make my demons run
I will find another angel and bring her home

I want to lay you down in my soul
I want to lay you down when the moon comes out and the stars begin to shine
I want to make the right decision, maybe tonight you're no longer mine

I got a really funny feeling, that is trembling in my bones
It's a feeling deep inside me which every lover knows
But still I can't give an answer to this feeling
'Cause the question is unknown
I will find the right solution and carry on

I want to lay you down in my soul

I want to lay you down in my soul
I want to lay you down when the moon comes out and the stars begin to shine
I want to make the right decision, maybe tonight you're no longer mine

I want to lay you down in my soul

A58

I was just drifting by
With no place to go
Watching the clouds
Far down your road

I've been here before
So many times
I can't handle no more
Any of your lies

A58
Bring me back home
You're taking too long
My patience is gone

A58
Don't take all of my time
I once was your drifter
And you know drifters pass by

I think of your bend
Near the PM Factory
Smoking kills like you do
But man they don't see

I follow your guide
Through meadows and plains
Away from my island
She's fighting the sea

A58
Bring me back home,
You're taking too long
My patience is gone

A58
Don't take all of my time
I once was your drifter
You know drifters pass by

And please don't take
Anymore of our lives
Can't deal with the pain
So keep us alive

The Dreamer

Haven't you heard about the only one
who hesitated for much too long

Remember when she was so young
She said nothing she was dreaming of

Dreamer, don't get me wrong
No, I won't let you down
I'll just sing without a sound

Oh, no I won't let you down

Like every woman you got your secrets too
I don't wanna know, I just wanna know you

Remember when you were so young
It all seemed so easy back then
These days are gone

Dreamer, don't get me wrong
No, I won't let you down
I'll just sing without a sound
Dreamer, don't get me wrong
No, I won't let you down
I'll just sing without a sound

Maybe Tonight, Maybe Tomorrow

A picture of you is waiting for me inside my head
It will only appear if I close my eyes and go to bed
Tomorrow morning it will be gone
But I refuse to wait so long

Morning calls and as I look inside my head
There's nothing left only the pain of some beers I've had
Maybe tonight there is a chance
That I'll get a second glance

Maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow if there's a way
I'll get you back inside my head, where you will stay
Maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow if there's a way
I'll get you back inside my head, where you will stay
Where you will stay

Chances grow and chances fade inside of me
The harder I try the faster they fade, not one left to see
Maybe someday I'll get it right
But until then I won't give up the fight

Maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow if there's a way
I'll get you back inside my head, where you will stay
Maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow if there's a way
I'll get you back inside my head, where you will stay
Where you will stay

Just a moment back in time, then
I would take that moment, to hold you once again

Maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow if there's a way
I'll get you back inside my head, where you will stay
Maybe tonight, maybe tomorrow if there's a way
I'll get you back inside my head, where you will stay
Where you will stay

What Life Brings

She was barely hanging on
The love of her family kept her strong
She was trying to survive
Trail of death in her eyes

Two kids, a husband and a dog
A minimum wage is rough enough
They had fun and did alright
They had each other and loved life

You don't know what life brings
You don't know what it brings
You don't know what until it's gone

The somewhere around Christmas
Santa brought his gifts but no one noticed
'Cause the dark days were just right
for the news that had arrive

They found a little know inside her breast
"Never saw a smaller one," is what they said
A day of hospital, then move one
You're young at heart and nothing's wrong

Flowers grew and one year passed
Santa's time was here again
And once again the doctor called
"There's nothing we can do. That's all."

You don't know what life brings
You don't know what it brings
You don't know what until it's gone

You don't know what life brings
You don't know what it brings
You don't know what until it's gone

And then a perfect day in August
she spread her wings and then took off
They laid her body down to rest
next to her father is where she lies best

You don't know what life brings
You don't know what it brings
You don't know what until it's gone

You don't know what life brings
You don't know what it brings
You don't know what until it's gone
