Your tested eyes don’t seem So lively to me Although they’re beautiful No one could disagree And with the silence gone Speaking honestly I see some nervous people Run after you and me No one can weigh you down Go bathe in the sun Go live your life on the run And teach me ‚bout tomorrow Your hugs still feel so distant Have you got what you need? So much pain to hide and So many souls to feed You seeker of new homes Explorer of your dreams You friend, you fool and brother Unstoppable it seems
Girl you seem down at your heels I’d like to know how you really feel You’ve been slowly growing for years and years When I tried to reach you in your atmosphere I won’t run, no I won’t hide Not gonna give in or go out of sight But I hope someday you will understand that you Got the good stuff right in your hand You got hope, so why you on hold? Don’t think your whole? Think you’re an asshole? You have come a long way to feel the breeze Now there’s nothing up here in this fantasy You be free, it’s free to be free Be like a palm tree close to the sea That leans back and forward and on and on Just depending on the wind that blows Stories of old need yet to be told Take off your blindfold, you are not in control You won’t to glory or promised lands If you never look at what is in your hand
Quiet 04:12
So you made your choice You don’t want to look back To where you’re coming from There’s been too much noise Growing from the inside I suppose you cling to the safeties you have got It’s quiet, it’s quiet, it’s quiet It’s quite a thing to do this But won’t be erase With age is how you’ll grow I don’t need your voice If you don’t want me inside I will be moving on I see your switch is off Until you are ready I’ll let you go and live with what I’ve got It’s quiet, it’s quiet, it’s quiet It’s quite a thing to say this But you won’t be erased Don’t ask me how I know It’s quiet, it’s quiet, it’s quiet At night in quiet you cry It’s quiet, it’s quiet, it’s quiet
Economy 03:23
This is how it’s been for me Found a girl and she seems happy I can tell it’s in the shape that she is moving And the colour of the skirts she dresses in She is always on my mind And the songs that we discover She’s the listener to the stories of my agony She laughs at it as if it don’t exist At times, she’s got a dirty mouth But I like to hear her true words It amazes me how well she does with everyone Where she is all grief must fade away Time is moving really fast I love to think about our future We know exactly where we come from, what we chose to be We know it’s not about us after all Love is not economy It is more like a decision To put aside our every greed and possibilities All arranged for only one man’s needs She can take me as I am All the doubts have gone away now And if there’s clouds of darkness forming in my head I take her hand and laugh and walk a little bit
