Track Name: Bathe In The Sun
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
Track Name: In Your Hands
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
Track Name: Quiet
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
Track Name: Economy
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
