about

This is a collection of moments I found or that found me.

They are in the blink of an eye.
They are what I see but couldn't say.
They are what I feel but couldn't explain.

They are what I wanted to let you know in the blink of an eye.

Track Name: Circles
one foot in front of the other
I draw circles, one, then another
what is me and what is you
and what is all the circling for?
I hear the wind as it blows
wonder what is it blowing for?
I got the wind blowing around my
head but circles make no sense in the
end

I put one word after the other
I say one thing then another
I wonder what is me and what is you
and what is all the saying for?
I hear the wind as it blows
wonder what is it blowing for?
I got the wind circling around my head
if the circles never end
at least I learned how to bend
Track Name: Signs
I put signs up my roof
they spell your name
in your favourite colour
if you don't come home
I might change them to yellow
look, I piled up all your horoscopes
and read each and every one of those

where are you?
where should I look for
when I should not look at all

I sleep with my toes pointing south or
north, you told me all the animals
sleep that way
I believed in all the things you say
today there's a storm outside my
window, they say it might even snow
but worst of all
I know you love the snow

where are you? x2
where should I look for
when I should not look x2
I should not look
Track Name: Flowers
I ran hundreds of miles of thoughts
today something caught me
who would have thought that it was
you? I rest my head now on you
I've spent thousands of hours
picking flowers with my head
I was hoping that one of them could
make me love

I was picking flowers with my head
I was spinning branches made of that
and one them I should have kept

I slept through thousands of days
just to stay awake for - what -
watching the moon I hope I see you
soon, all I think is you

I was picking flowers with my head
I was watching the moon hoping to die
soon

can I rest my head on you instead?
Track Name: Arms
you were watching me go
you sold weapons I don't need no
your languages I speak
your friendship I don't need no
I rather walk alone
your eyes are spitting flames
don't make me feel ashamed
oh I'm solo

arms made of love
please take them off
I don't know how to love

when you spoke of love
all I was thinking was
who sold you these words?
languages, friendships,
crazy lovebirds

arms made of love
please take them off
I don't know how to be loved

and now these three remain
faith, hope and love
but the greatest of these
is love you said to me

(chorus)
Track Name: Unreal
I hope, I pray, I stay and I wait
will I ever be sure that it's good to be
here?
I am tired when I want to be alive
and I am quiet when I'd rather cry out

please, would you come and speak
with me, see if I'm still real
please, would you hurry for me
cause I feel unreal

I write, I sing, I study and I dream
will it ever be okay to be so shy
when I want to say hi and to be so proud
when I need your advice

(chorus)

learning slowly as I'm landing steadily
on my feet
please, would you hurry for me cause I
feel unreal
Track Name: Sailor
you are a quiet sailor and you sail your
ship quite well
you ask me: what if I come back
without anything in my hands?
will they still welcome me back? will
they still be happy to see me?
cause I got nothing, I got nothing to
show

you took off two years ago with
empty bags, an empty boat, an empty
look
now you ask me: what if I come back
as empty as I left? will you still
welcome me back? will you still be
happy to see me? cause I got nothing, I
got nothing for you

sailor you send messages in bottles
no one does that but you and I love
you just for that and I will welcome
you back and I will be happy to see
you. don't bring me anything but
yourself. don't bring me anything but
come back
Track Name: Time
time cries: I pass by and what do you
do? what are you searching for?
people cry: we pass by and what do
you do? who are you searching for?
no one knows what time is for
what do you do?
what are you searching for?
does no one know?
Track Name: Loved
has someone noticed that man?
he just got on our train
with his hands he tells stories
with this warm and open look
you'd like to swallow
now, that one I loved, loved, loved,
loved once. that one I loved, loved,
loved, loved so much
has someone noticed?

he's got lyrics in his bags, when he
talks he's just numbers and facts
when you walk next to him the world
makes sense
and that's what I loved, loved, loved,
loved about him and that's what I
love, love, love, love in men
and he made me know this

he takes a seat, he greets me - how
much worse or strange could this be
when his eyes can still meet me
when my smile makes him miss me
cause that man he loved, loved, loved,
loved me once
and that man he loved, loved, loved
and I loved him as well
just I couldn't tell
I couldn't tell
Track Name: Goodbye
I picked the place, I picked the time
I picked the words I would say to you
I didn't know you, I didn't know how
much I like you
goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

you don't know how much I loved the things
we laughed about and cry
goodbye, goodbye, goodbye

another time, another place
it's just another word we have to say
all the time
it's goodbye, goodbye, goodbye ...
Track Name: Okay
please tell me that it's okay not to be
okay sometimes
please tell me that, please tell me that

please tell me that it's okay to be sad
sometimes
please tell me that, please tell me that

please tell me that it's okay wishing to
be dead sometimes
please tell me that, please tell me that,
please tell me that
Track Name: Smile
I watch your silhouette walking away
somehow I always remain with the
night
you keep me busy by saying nothing or
saying little or just by your smile
you are the reason why I smile

you're throwing syllables, I catch the
line
you're sending signals, but I need a sign
you keep me busy boy say nothing
say little or just smile

you keep me busy, why x2
you are the reason why I smile
Track Name: *Echo
I get holes in my shoes
the cold's like scissors on my clothes
how will I and will I ever come closer
what if I do, what if all I do
what if all I really wanna do is love

I search faces for traces of you
I got fears instead of rational thoughts
what if I do, what if all I do
what if all I really wanna do is love you
