Track Name: What To Do In The Rain
WHAT TO DO IN THE RAIN

It’s been 24 hours since it started to rain - I’m in my room just listening since it came
Been stilling my thirst - enjoying the sound - when the raindrops burst I feel the ground
Been dreaming out loud - stars on the ceiling - my thoughts in music - brushstrokes of feeling

What to do in the rain - I could stay in my cave
Or I could throw myself in the river - join the rest of you who’re out there

A universe in my kitchen - rolling streams of heaven’s tears indecipherable as dreams
The water of life - cleaning the streets - oh who am I - will you hear my cry
I wake myself from dreaming - half expecting - Noah’s arc to pick me up
But that’s never gonna happen - ’cause there’s no place - that’s dry and safe if you wanna escape

What to do in the rain - I could stay in my cave
Or I could throw myself in the river - join the rest of you who’re out there

We are all drowning in our lives of things - things
More and more we’re losing sight - of what is real and what is right
I storm down the stairs - relentless and charged - full of fear but I don’t care
I’m ready to go - full power - catapult myself out of my tower

’Cause I’m ready to own it - what is to come - the intuition is never wrong
This is the life - I learn to live it slower - a shift of planes - ooh it’s never over
I meet myself - love and light - the part of me that never dies
Darling please - hand me my crown - I am jumping - I’m ready to drown

What to do in the rain - I could stay in my cave
Or I could throw myself in the river - join the rest of you who’re out there

There’s really nothing to it - just do it - you can learn to swim right through it
Over and over - reborn each moment - I forget my name and get back in the rain

Heart High

I’m in love with you - and I haven’t even kissed you - I’m in love with you - and I haven’t ever missed you
I’m in love with you - we’ve only spoken a few words - I’m in love with you - and you don’t even know

And I don’t have to have you - no no no - this love is all mine - I’d be ready to share with you
But there’s no pressure from my side - ’cause love just is and love transcends and either way I’m fine
I don’t have to have you, babe - you’re already mine

I’m in love with you - days come and go - I’m in love with you - just going with the flow
I’m in love with you - my heart is singing from the dark - I’m in love with you - even if it’s just for the arts -
thank you heart!

And I don’t have to have you - no no no - this love is all mine - I’d be ready to share with you
But there’s no pressure from my side - ’cause love just is and love transcends and either way I’m fine
I don’t have to have you, babe - you’re already mine

I’m in love with you - and I haven’t told a soul - I’m in love with you - if I do it’ might grow cold
I’m in love with you - I’m also in it for the thrill - I’m in love with you - babe maybe you can tell
I’m in love with you - for good times and for worse - I’m in love with you - for sickness and in health
I’m in love with you - and I will love others too - I’m in love with you - and there’s nothing you have to do

And I don’t have to have you - no no no - this love is all mine - I’d be ready to share with you
But there’s no pressure from my side - ’cause love just is and love transcends and either way I’m fine
I don’t have to have you, babe - you’re already mine
Inside my heart - my love will never die, oh! Thank you heart for making me high!
Track Name: A Token Of Love
Baby please - don’t get me wrong - I didn’t mean to write something hurtful or strong
I much prefer to talk or touch - to this high abstract plane - we communicate on
We’re just getting to know each other a bit - and it’s not so easy to guess what’s ahead
And who is sitting across from you - where is he from - what does he do

So give me a squeeze a smile and a hug - let me melt to the touch
’Cause when we meet - nothing is spoken - yet all we need to know is said and it’s a token
A token of love, a token of love a token of love, oohhooo

It’s not so easy for me to see - do we get along or do we disagree
And I can’t recognize yet how you feel - there’s a joker in the mix - a poker face that I can’t read
People that we like and people that we love - when the going gets tough - the tone can get rough
And I am raw with an open heart - I am strong yet sometimes I fall apart

So give me a squeeze a smile and a hug - let me melt to the touch
’Cause when we meet - nothing is spoken - yet all we need to know is said and it’s a token
A token of love, a token of love a token of love, oohhooo
Track Name: 21
I’m 21 - getting on the train - shining like the sun in the rain
I’m 21 - with a pack on my bag - stepping into the unknown
I’m 21 - all insecure and pale - my lines are thin and frail
I’m 21 - with the tiger’s courage - got my mother’s worries

And I don’t wanna grow up - but I know I don’t have much choice
And I crave to be free - and I wanna dare to be me
Dadadadadum...

I’m 21 - running away from home - wanna be on my own
I’m 21 - with the urge to prove - failing hard at being smooth
I’m 21 - flying the magic carpet - not sure that I like it
I’m 21 - sailing the 7 seas - oh my heart is not at ease

And I don’t wanna grow up - but I know I don’t have much choice
And I crave to be free - and I wanna dare to be me

I’m 21 - in the field of tomorrow - with feelings I borrow
I’m 21 - with the adventurous bones - I’m rolling with the stones
I’m 21 - in the turkish market - on the flying carpet
I’m 21 - and I’m not standing still - I’ve got my own will

And I don’t wanna grow up - but I know I don’t have much choice
And I crave to be free - and I wanna dare to be me
Dadadadadum...

I’m 21 - with scorpio rising - ever surprising
Track Name: Berlin Is For Dreamers
Ever since all the while spinning wheels unrecognized - an incomparable sense of the undenied and intense
With a handful of dreams in the back of my trunk - the undeniably sexy - shines like the sun
The places we explore suddenly appearing doors - where there used to be walls - we now show it all
You can come as you are - you can shine like a star - if you’re ready and dare - it’s all for the taking right here

Berlin is for dreamers - believers in change - even when we don’t know how to - we just experiment
Utopia is here where the magic happens - like a child scientist naive and maddening
Berlin is for dreamers - trusting in life - that in the midst of the chaos - we will survive

Want a home to be close - intimacy overall and we crave to be free - oh you can’t count on me
So change your mind and go deep - risk it all for work and love - just decide to be free
And honour your needs - stand on the bridge industrial beauty - far beyond brutal and guilty
Into the grey the sun sinks - 7 months till it returns - so wanderlust open your heart
You can teach it how to trust - and give strength to embrace once again this crazy place

Berlin is for dreamers - believers in change - even when we don’t know how to - we just experiment
Utopia is here where the magic happens - like a child scientist naive and maddening
Berlin is for dreamers - trusting in life that in the midst of the chaos - love will survive
Love will survive - oohoo oohoo - love will survive - oho - love will survive!
Track Name: If I Could Love
If I could love - I’d love you till death - look into your eyes - drown in their abyss
If I could love - you’d be the one - I would admire - you’d be my sun
If I could love - you’d be my ocean - moon rising surely - ever in motion
If I could love - we’d melt together - like a living poem - forever and ever

If I could love - I’d rise from the dark - let go of my shadows and re-enter the heart
Leave solitude behind - say no goodbyes - then I could love and we’d fly together
Under the blue skies - light as a feather
If I could love - I’d hold you tight - fall into your arms - cry like a child
If I could love - you’d be the one - I’d tell all my secrets to - before I’m gone
If I could love - my life would flourish - the intrinsic poison - could no longer be nourished
If I could love - life would be real and all my scratches could slowly heal

If I could love - move close in the low lights - we’d hold hands and maybe share a dance
Should we be - bound and free - I could break away and steal a kiss
From a cherry blossom tree place it on your lips

If I could love - my heart would be open - even when it’s painful it wouldn’t close down
If I could love - the ugly and the pretty - I’d be ready for life as it is
lf i could love life as it is - lf i could love life as it is...
Track Name: Calm Charm
Life is a walk on the knife’s edge - life is a walk who knows what’s next
Life is a walk on a summer’s day - life is a walk sometimes it’s a break
Life is a walk with a sense of release - life is a walk into the deep mysteries
Life is a walk on the ocean side - life is a walk in the blackest night

Breathe deep - heartbeat - in out - calm charm - slow ease - smile release
Present moment we are alive - present moment we are alright

Life is a walk like a crazy drug - life is a walk just staying with the rush
Life is a walk all simple and calm - life is a walk sometimes we carry arms
Life is a walk with nowhere to go - life is a walk for the young and the old
Life is a walk sometime we take the bike - sometimes we rest our tired smiles

Breathe deep - heartbeat - in out - calm charm - slow ease - smile release
Present moment we are alive - present moment we are alright

Life is a walk at times it’s a storm - life is a walk with a scent of cinnamon
Life is a walk with the loss of innocence - life is a walk with remembrance
Life is a walk sometimes it’s right when it’s wrong - life is a walk seems there’s too much going on
Life is a walk with friends right and left - life is a walk with no family left

Breathe deep - heartbeat - in out - calm charm - slow ease - smile release
Present moment we are alive - present moment we are alright
Breathe Deep - heartbeat - in out - calm charm - slow ease - smile release
Present moment we are alive - present moment we are alright
Track Name: Lonely Wolf
Lonely wolf what are you looking for - lonely wolf what do you want more
Lonely wolf where do you go? - when you wanna be on your own
Lonely wolf what have you done - whom or what are you hiding from
Lonely wolf I’m just here to ask - ’cause I’ve noticed you’re wearing a mask

Aaaa Oooh

Lonely wolf do you have a pack? - lonely wolf are you going to go back
’Cause I’m intrigued by your darkness and your sweet - lonely wolf I suggest that we meet
Lonely wolf singing in the night - lonely wolf with eyes shining bright
Lonely wolf I wanna know your mysteries and pain - but you don’t have to tell me it’s OK

Aaaa Oooh

Lonely Wolf I’ve got a dark soul too - lonely wolf I’ve locked myself in a room
With a shoebox of dreams and a bottle of truth - lonely wolf while hiding from the moon
Lonely wolf the past is a whore - lonely wolf he keeps begging for more
For the first time ever I need to take care of myself - lonely wolf I don’t need your help

Aaaa Oooh

I know that it gets cold in the night - maybe you need a friend to hold you tight
I know a place where dreams come alive - where lovers lay and sleeping logic lies
Step with me out into the moonlight - come with me to where wolves cannot hide

Lonely wolf we could hang out - my inner lonely wolf would like that very much
Lonely wolf just know that you’re free to go - anytime anywhere on your own
Lonely wolf you’re not alone - the time to connect has come
Lonely wolf don’t guard yourself with solitude - you don’t have to sing that lonely tune

Aaaa Oooh
Track Name: Lady In Black
I’m the lady in black - the destroyer of worlds - I’m the lady in black - want to be someone else
I’m the lady in black - broke my own back again - I’m the lady in black - with the porcelain skin
I’m the lady in black - cannot turn the page - I’m the lady in black - ooh - afraid I lose my way
I’m the lady in black - the words are my corset - I’m the lady in black – I pretend that I am all set

And then you come along and you show me what is wrong - I broke my own heart again by being who I am

I’m the lady in black - not sure what to do -I’m the lady in black - I’m just like you
I’m the lady in black - my blood is alive - I’m the lady in black - with the wisdom eyes
I’m the lady in black – I'm scared to let go - I’m the lady in black – ooh – I fear to grow old
I’m the lady in black - In the moment of squeeze - I’m the lady in black - I just want peace

I’m made of longing in a league of my own - I know that someone’s coming yet I feel so alone
I’m running away to the edge of the abyss - I’m too afraid to stay there’s so much i miss

I’m the lady in black - I cling to the past - I’m the lady in black - know that nothing lasts
I’m the lady in black - with the educated mind - I’m the lady in black - just want to feel fine
I’m the lady in black - with the brightness of life - I’m the lady in black – ooh - holding the knife
I’m the lady in black - just want to be free - I’m the lady in black - just want to be happy

And then you come around and show me how to be found - I healed my own heart again by being who I am

I’m the lady in black - building castles of dreams - I’m the lady in black - bursting at the seams
I’m the lady in black – I'm climbing that mountain - I’m the lady in black - I'm the dot in the horizon
I’m the lady in black - I open up to you - I’m the lady in black – ooh - I tell you of my truth
I’m the lady in black - I lean on you - I’m the lady in black – then I fall right through

And then you come around and show me how to be found - I healed my own heart again by being who I am

I’m the lady in black - I sail in my boat - I’m the lady in black - I’ve got nowhere to go
I’m the lady in black - with all the anger - I’m the lady in black - I lower my anchor
I’m the lady in black - with the power of rage - I’m the lady in black - coming of age
I’m the lady in black - walking in the meadows - I’m the lady in black - stepping out of the shadows
Track Name: Divine
I am a knight - polishing my armour - carrying my sword - fighting my own karma
I am warrior - making my own glory - free to reign - writing my own story
Even with the thunder - in my heart and mind - on a cloudy day i can feel the sunlight
There’s a desert landscape on my skin - I’m cracked and burned from within.


I am sacred - I am divine - brave and bold - blood of old

The lack of rain - in my life caused a drought - the lack of love - caused the death of the heart
Black blossoms from the breath - I inhale the bitterness - I sit with the pain and exhale again
I go through the fire - my own personal hell - I look at the monsters - oh babe can you tell
I go to the grave with just a dollar in my pocket - with a heart full of grace - atleast i know I’ve got it.

I am sacred - I am divine - brave and bold - blood of old

A man without a country - a traitor to my blood - trying to clean the past away - with a dirty toothbrush
I lost my faith - long before there was a war - this was moving through me - as I scrubbed the floor
I was a coward - now I’m not - I was a traitor - I learned a lot
This is the end - of a life as I knew it - what’s yet to come - don’t know if I blew it.

I am sacred - I am divine - brave and bold - blood of old
I am sacred - I am divine - brave and bold - blood of old
Track Name: Live Your Life
I play the chords on my harp - fall in tune with the heart
I sense that the end is near - lurking here in the dark
I’m sitting on the ground - I can feel the ancient sounds
Lives that have passed and gone - I connect with the hum

A voice that enthralls you - a voice that calls you - the music ancient magically alive
Saying what no words can describe: Just live your life - live your life.

I met my edge - where nothing is fixed - the data ever changing - reality facing
The darkness in me - that will never go away - I sit with the pain - and embrace it again
Some say that home - is where the heart blooms - and my heart’s right here with you in this room
In this moment I’m done - tomorrow I might be gone - and I ask myself again - what will happen then?

A voice that enthralls you - a voice that calls you - the music ancient magically alive
Saying what no words can describe: Just live your life - live your life.
