Shelter
Darkness all around me and I’m looking back
I am fighting all my fears
Waiting that the darkness disappears
I’m having just a lonely talk with the mirror
And the shadows on the wall
But there ain’t no answer at all
I’ve been out there on the road
For so many years alone
With a long long way back home

And I need a little shelter
Baby can you give me shelter
Lord I need a little shelter
Baby can you give me shelter

I’v come a long long way now I’m here today
But time is running on
And tomorrow I’ll be gone
I can’t walk another mile Baby I’m so tired
Many turns were on my way
I’m fighting all my yesterdays
I’ve been out there on the road …

And I need a little shelter …

Lord I’m falling for your smile
Can you hold me for a while
And as the daylight slowly dies
Let me close my weary eyes

I’ve been out there on the road…

And I need a little shelter …

SOUTHBOUND TRAIN 
Waiting in the station on the edge of town
For a southbound train going down
The day we went to Paris the air was fresh and clear
Those days so far and yet so near
Hopelessly hoping to escape their rules
Like hopelessly romantic fools

Riding on a southbound train
Riding on a southbound train
We were riding on a southbound train
Southbound train

Riding into Paris drinking cheap champagne
Changin’ trains in the early morning rain
Heading for the south with a sunset over blue
Building a sandcastle for two
Where the sky is still and the beach grass grows
The air is warm and the south wind blows

Riding on a southbound train …

DEADLINE 
Don’t remember when we first met
To make those people dance
After all I’m in your debt
And we took our chance

We lost some friends along the way
I miss the love we shared
The past is gone, we’re here today
Sending out a little prayer

We all have got our deadline
We’re running out of time
But I hope we still got time to
Make it shine
Make it shine

We will all get wings some day
When it’s time to fly
Here forever we cannot stay
When it’s time to say goodbye

We all have got our deadline
We’re running out of time
But I hope we still got time to
Make it shine
Make it shine

SOMEONE LIKE YOU   
Thank God the night is over
And dawn becomes day
I’ve been thinking a long time about
What to say
I’ve been travelling a long time
Just followed the sun
And I’ve spent my time on the road
On the run

I’ve been hopin’ for someone like you
I’ve been waitin’ for someone like you
I’ve been searchin’ for someone like you
You

I’ve been lookin’ for a soulmate
To fin’lly come through
I’ve been carrying the weight of the world
Without you
Now I’m counting the hours
To see you again
Cause you can chase the dark clouds away
Tell me when

I’ve been hopin’ for someone like you …

SHE COMES TO ME AT NIGHT    
She isn’t there, she isn’t real
But she comes to talk to me at night
She’s only living in my dreams
But she tells me everything’s alright
She can keep my secrets
She can save my soul
She reads my mind
When I feel like crying
She don’t waste my time
She makes it shine

She comes to me at night
She comes to me at night
She takes me high
She makes me fly
She comes at night

And in the middle of the night
Every single whisper fills my head
And then she slowly slips away
And I remember every word she said
She can look right through me
And she knows it all
She knows my dreams
And when I feel like dying
She can ease my pain
She guards my dreams

She comes to me at night …

THOSE WERE THE DAYS      
Walking through the summer night
With all the time in the world
Those were the days of miracles
Remember how we were
From time to time
It’s all coming back
But nothing ever stays
Those were the days …

In the morning of our lives
We wouldn’t be afraid
Those were the days of promises
When all our dreams were made
Running in circles
It’s all coming back
But nothing ever stays
Those were the days

I still wonder what went wrong
And what made us part
Those were the days of innocence
And you could read my heart
I still remember
And it’s all coming back
But nothing ever stays
Those were the days …

I HAD IT ALL      
I’m too tired, can’t get no sleep
Still can’t get it right
Lost my wings, won’t fly again
Through a tender August night
Some days I don’t know why I’m here
It’s been a journey through the dark
I’m trapped inside a circle
Always come back to the start
I’m fadin’ away like watercolours in the rain
I’ve been hurt before but I don’t feel any pain
No I don’t feel any pain

Maybe you could be so kind
And set the lights down low
You don’t know what’s on my mind
I had it all and let it go

I’ve been a dreamer right from the start
My dreams were flying high …. (they say)
Don’t part with your illusions
When they are gone you will die
I’m only trying to forgive myself
I can’t look you in the eyes
Too many painful memories
And too many wasted nights
I’m fadin’ away …

Maybe you could be so kind …

TONIGHT THERE’S A WIND      
There is a place in the backstreets of my mind
Filled with the years and the days I left behind
And I recall every face I’ve seen
Every place I’ve been
I see it all – the summer nights
And the days so bright

Tonight there’s a wind
And I can feel the past closing in
And I wanna taste those mem’ries again
So I spread my wings
And I will fly to be there again
Tonight there’s a wind

There is a road which we all have got to go
And where it leads to- it’s good we do not know
But I recall every day gone by
Makes me laugh and cry
I see it all – the summer days
And our last embrace

Tonight there’s a wind …

NEVER FELT LIKE THIS BEFORE
If we keep the candle burnin’
Maybe we could talk all night
About the dreams we left behind
And fin’lly tell the wrong from right
I could be talking in my sleep
Secrets I’m trying to hide
Maybe I would tell the truth
When you’re lying by my side
Maybe you are heaven sent to me
Maybe you’re the woman to save me

Never felt like this before
I’m not drifting anymore
my ship comes in – skin to skin
I never felt like this before
I was taken by surprise
Still that sparkle in your eyes
You’re the one I’m waiting for
I never felt like this before

I’m feeling like a little boy
I’m feeling as if lost my soul
Will I reach my destination
Maybe you can make me whole
Is it magic is it real
Or is it just a slow good bye
Can we keep the fire burning
if we really really try
If I lose my way please wait for me
I’ll be waiting here to make you see

Never felt like this before …

And if I ever say those words to you
Maybe you could help to make it true

Never felt like this before …

KISS THE PAST GOODBYE 
The moment I saw you I fell for your smile
The world stopped turnin’ for a while
On days like these I wish you were still here
I’m missing you my dear
Though we’re far apart
You’re right here in my heart
But I know as time slowly goes by
Kiss the past goodbye

Memories of you are dancing in my head
The times we laughed – the things you said
And I miss the million things that make you dear
Oh how I wish you were still here
We both know it’s much too late
For the road we never tried
And I know I’ve gotta let it fly
Kiss the past goodbye

I remember sunsets too perfect to be true
Starry summer nights with you

Though we’re far apart
You’re right here in my heart
But I know I’ve gotta let it fly
Kiss the past goodbye
