Time

Healing, you’re still broken
and you’re healing only when you’re alone, don’t you know?

Preaching, we’ve had enough of the preaching
’cause our god has died, and we only have time

Weeping, under the birch trees you’re weeping
stagelights on your face, that’s how you’re being saved

Freezing, behind the corner you’re freezing
with bitter wind in your eyes, will you be mine?

And may time have mercy on me
’cause I’m not fine without you
it’s time that I beg on my knees
to silence the doubt in you

Leaving, you doubt that, if you were leaving,
I’ll go back to before, but tell me, what for?
Feeling, if you only knew what I’m feeling
there’s not a shadow of doubt that I don’t love you

And may time have mercy on me
’cause I’m not fine without you
it’s time that I beg on my knees
to silence the doubt in you


Diamond Eyes

Long ago a shadow spoke to me
Long ago a shadow spoke to me
Take the time you need, your heart wont bleed
It’s just hiding in the dark, you will see

I turn my eyes on diamonds in the sky
I turn my eyes on diamonds in the sky
Shining afar, the silver in blue
Reminds me of the day that I met you

Seven lone nights
I’m falling in the black
Give me a sign, diamond eyes!

I close my eyes and turn them on my heart
I close my eyes and turn them on my heart
It was hiding in the dark, now it runs after you
But you said you need the time to think things through

The days are far away when I got you
The days are far away when I got you
Your heart is in the dark, hiding in the blue
And you said you need the time to think things through

Seven lone nights
I’m falling in the black
Give me a sign, diamond eyes!


Dan Lee’s Place

Im sitting on a barstool in Dan Lee’s place, staring at an empty glass
Recalling the old farmstead, that Grandfather built to last
I still remember my father’s voice, my boy where have you been
When I came home making a noise, I said I was bathing in deep streams

I was too engaged with messing up my head
I didn’t give a damn when he said

Remember this, remember this
You’ll call the last shots here
Remember this, remember this
You’ll throw the last darts here

I still remember my mother’s words, when I was packing my bags
I didn’t want to listen, I didn’t want to learn
I just wanted to get out fast

I was too damn proud of chasing my dreams
I never thought about it since

Remember this, remember this
Always do be sincere
Remember this, remember this
Truthful ones don’t need to fear

When I fill my glass it always strikes, the one I lost my heart to
The oath I hear ’till the end of my life
Echoes in the bottle of booze

The words that rescued me, and the word I couldn’t keep
Same old words haunt in my sleep

Remember this, Remember this
I will always be near
Remember this, remember this
You will always be my dear

In Dan Lee’s place time is running slow, in this place I feel I’m home
I don’t have hurries, and not many dreams
In Dan Lee’s place I can just be

When someone tries again to get to me
I have one thing to say

Remember this, remember this
I call the last shots here
Remember this, remember this
I’ll throw the last darts here


Sparks

My road is by the streams at the mountains
The ground by the crippled trees
My sound is carried from the darkness
The howl from the distant hills

My robe is the cloud in the night sky
Floating over me as I roam
My hope is the warmth of the campfire
Glowing ’till I wake tomorrow

Like the sparks on the fire
My mind rockets high in the wind
Light in the dark is getting brighter
The wild heart of mine is setting still

My sword is the bolt from the dark cloud
My shield is the midsummer light
My joy is the silence that i’ve found
My grief is the polar night

Like the sparks on the fire
My mind rockets high in the wind
Light in the dark is getting brighter
The wild heart of mine is setting still

In my crusade I will find no roses
in my life I will find no gold
The cage I escaped for a moment
is inearthed ’till the end of the fall


The Bride of Fire

A stirring thought gets in my brain
it runs like poison in my veins
It makes me go cry in the rain
it burns but i’m not feeling pain

I’m giving you a golden chain
but in the end it goes down the drain
The bride of fire makes me insane
and you’re asking was this all in vain

And her dogs are howling at the full hay moon
and baby, i’m lost
and her dogs are howling at the full hay moon
and baby, i’m lost

I want to stay but we can’t refrain
our hearts from breaking, I can’t explain
Your love to me was like champagne
with the bride of fire it’s like cocaine

And her dogs are howling at the full hay moon
and baby, I’m lost
and her dogs are howling at the full hay moon
and baby, I’m lost


Towboater

I did my time, I’ll take the high road
But I’ll leave behind everything that I’ve known

Sun goes down, I leave my burden
My hometown, I don’t yearn for you when

I glide through the waves to the Sun
Navigate myself where I belong
I anchor at night and when I wake
I’ll be thousand light years away

Like the terns, my friends with no words
With no concerns I search the ends of the earth

I won’t return. The only thing that I swore
All I earned drifts to the shore when

I glide through the waves to the Sun
Navigate myself where I belong
I anchor at night and when I wake
I’ll be thousand light years away


Saturday Night

You used to know that I would love and say i do
You used to know that I would fly you to the moon
But I don’t know how to fly a plane
And I don’t know would I ever say

You liked to hope that I sang the songs for you
You liked to hope that i would say that i was fool
But I never felt that I was wrong
And I never thought to share the songs

And me, I always loved to tell you lies, even when I told the truth
And when you leave me on a saturday night
I want you to know that I love you

You didn’t feel that I was the one to hold you tight
You didn’t see that I was seeing black and white
I don’t wanna get back on track again
I don’t wanna walk the line my friend

And me, I always loved to tell you lies, even when I told the truth
And when you leave me on a saturday night
I want you to know that I love you


The Last Bar in This Town

I’m walking on the streets of my old home town
Everyone is stalking me, I haven’t been around
It’s not shocking to see the same old clowns
It’s not shocking that the kings have lost their crowns

Beer and fast, I don’t fear the past
I’ll meet you in the last bar in this town

You don’t want to get out of this hole
You’ve thrown away the key to your soul
You don’t want to get free anymore
You keep your back against the Wall

Your wounds never heal, if your heart is steel
You’re gonna choke in the last bar in this town

The stars have lost their lights
There ain’t no future sights
City lights go off at night
You don’t drown how hard you try

The scars ain’t old to me, the past dies slowly
It haunts me in the last bar in this town

Still I’m happy to be in this same old dive
I’m happy to see that you’re still alive
I still remember the days when you were mine
But now we’ll enjoy the day and drink all night

With the same old faces, Hearts and Aces
We’ll pass out in the last bar in this town


The Lonesome Pine

Diamondbacks on the trail of the Lonesome Pine
Leading to my place beyond power lines
There’s no e-mails and no deadlines
Just one bed, I’m the last of the line

I see two snails intertwined
At the stairs of my shed at the Lonesome Pine
Stretching to the sky as a sign
Welcome, friend, this is the end of the line

I will not be frail as I’m on my own
Into a shining lake I throw my phone
As I inhale and sit on my throne
I have prevailed, this is my comfort zone

I look at my lands, where the blood was shed
I’m glad that now just the sky is red
I look at a rock and feel in my bones
When I drop it will be my tombstone

I’ve paid my debt, lived like a slave
The only way they think you’ll save
No more wealth, no more fails
The life I left is the modern day jail

Yesterday they said all I need is sunshine
Just trade and trade, but I had made up my mind
I know what I need, it’s the top of the line
At my shed I’ll let the moon shine

I don’t batter my head to the wall no more
The diamondbacks will be watching by the door
I don’t have to be a clone no more
When I rest in my shed I don’t lock my door

Far from the old by the timberlines
All alone I let it shine
It beats like a drum and shocks my spine
Like ten shots of rum, like satan’s wine


Where Love Still Grows

At night I look at my face
reflecting on the wall,
There was a time without these chains
before the prison behind these doors

My own writing in every page
fading in the back of a drawer
words of mine: ”It’s not too late,
the last call, the time has come”

And l’m gone in the darkest of days
From the life I’m living,
I’m running away, where love still grows

Is that a crime to be brave?
Inside do you feel you did wrong
When you were blind and lost in space
The Last time when you left your home?

In cold nights and heartaches it’s raining alcohol
When is the time, and what is your age?
Don’t ask, it’s always wrong

And l’m gone in the darkest of days,
From the life I’m living
I’m running away, where love still grows
