Brother

You are still my brother
Till the end of time
You and I we lost our way
Differences of mind
Till the end of time

Listen to me Brother
I can’t take your place
No one else can wear your face
That’s the work of grace
Till the end of time

And here is my problem:

Hey, I think you got me wrong
I’m sorry for the riches that I found
I didn’t mean no harm

So tell me where you’re bound
You’re welcome in my town
But if you try to force my compass ‘round
I’m gonna stand you down

You are still my brother
Till the end of time
No one else can take your place
Difference is divine
Till the end of time

And here is my problem:

Hey, I think you got me wrong
I’m sorry for the riches I took home
I know I crossed a line

But show me what you’ve found
You’re welcome in my town
But if you try to force my compass ‘round
I’m gonna stand you down

Till the end of time

Do you remember me?

Do you remember me?
I am a different breed
I came to set you free
You got the best of me

I am the pain you feel
You almost made me real
I brought you to your knees
Do you remember me?

I walked a thousand miles

And here I am
Show me a world that I can understand
Like a common man
You are the one that can sift me from the sand

Who do you think you are?
You tell me life is hard
I came in from afar
My life was in the stars

I walked a thousand miles

And here I am
Show me a world that I can understand
Like a common man
You are the one that can sift me from the sand

And here I am
Show me a world that I can understand
Like a common man
You are the void in my heart and in my hands

I am the air you breathe
I am your symphony
I’m all you let me be
What do you want from me?

Reaching out for your hand

Here I am
Show me a world that I can understand
I am just a man
Show me the key that you hold in your hand

Safe With Me

Like a call of the wild
You were a part of me
Like a dark road at night
I know what I cannot see

But you had to be – free

And I had to be – me

Aah-
You were safe with me
You were safe with me

I get oceans of time
Now I don´t look for it
I get to walk a blurry line
Into the heart of it

And it comes to me
Like a silent scream
And it looks to be
How it all begins

Aah-
You were safe with me
You were safe with me

Would you stay with me?

You were safe with me

Into the heart of it

Make it wrong, make it right
You were a part of me

Like a dark road at night

Like a call of the wild

Whispering heart

Take you shoes off
Drop the sand on the street
And touch me baby
Make it real
Make it real

Go and show a spinning world that
Naturals don’t learn

Take you shoes off
Drop the sand on the street
I have been waiting for you
There’s this place where we can meet

You are in the world baby
Don’t forget to burn

Going high
Going under
Going in

I see a new beginning
See you dancing in it
Go, light a flame and let it burn to the end
I see a brighter limit
See you dance into it
Whispering heart you are always the same

Dream about it
Draw your lines in the sand
Sometimes the way things happen
We don’t need to understand

We are in the world baby
You and I will burn

Going high
Going under
Going in

I see a new beginning
See you dancing in it
Go, light a flame and let it burn to the end
I see a brighter limit
See you dance into it
Whispering heart you are always the same

Shine on the street
Make it real

I see a new beginning
See you dancing in it
Go, light a flame and let it burn to the end
I see a brighter limit
See you dance into it
Whispering heart you are always the same

Heaven Cast

They are always gonna last
The moments of the past
I keep things in the now
But you’re still here somehow

If I could have you here
Have you in the near
I’d keep things in the now
It was you that showed me how

I’m thankful for the still of night
Thankful for the morning light
Thankful you were here
Thankful I was there
I’m thankful there is you and I

You and I we are heaven cast
We are heaven cast

There are doors that can’t be closed
Life has taught me so
Still moments to be found
That’s what time evolves around

Did we know it hand in hand
How moments can expand
I’ll keep things in the now
But you’re still here somehow

I’m thankful for the still of night
Thankful for the morning light
Thankful you were here
Thankful I was there
I’m thankful there is you and I

I’m thankful for the still of night
Thankful for the morning light
Thankful you were here
Thankful I was there
And thankful there is you and I

You and I we are heaven cast
We are heaven cast

There is a place

Baby,
There is a place for you and me
Sooner or later we shall see
Through the tears we cry
And baby,
Our time has only just begun
We are different, we are one
What more do we need?

There’s a silent world
Shining from afar
There’s a drop of life
Among the stars
That is where we humans are

Put your darker thoughts aside
Lay back in my arms tonight
Everything is right
And join me
All the things that we will see
Soon will turn to memories
We’d better stay awake
Every morning breaks

And there’s a silent world
Shining from afar
Just a drop of life
Among the stars
That is where we humans are

There is a place for you and me
Sooner or later we shall see
Diamonds in the sky
And maybe
Time has only just begun
We are different, we are one
What more do we need
There’s a place for you and me

Oh what a night

Oh what a night
I fell from the sky
Into her arms
Out on a line

Oh what a night
She’s waiting inside
Deep dark river
Rush me by

And this could set me free
Oh what a night

I can’t recall when I stepped inside
Our blood is wild and free
Oh what a night

I knew it in my heart
I knew it from the stars
It’s just the way we are
We have to fall apart

I knew it in my heart
I knew it from the stars
It’s just the way we are
We have to fall apart

We have to fall apart

It happened at last
It happened so fast
A moment in heaven
Oceans apart

And this could set you free
Oh what a night

I knew it in my heart
I knew it from the stars
That’s just the way we are
We have to fall apart

I knew it in my heart
I knew it from the stars
It’s just the way we are
We have to fall apart

The way we are
We need to fall apart

We’re made to fall apart

Oh what a night
I fell from the sky

End of the line

I just want you to know
That no one leaves by the door they enter
I just want you to know
You’ll meet yourself when you surrender

If you come here for real
If that’s how you feel
Well that’s how I found you

Guess we don’t need to know
Road ahead will show
We belong together

Let me take you heart off your mind
It’s a beautiful place you keep inside
It’s going to cost you to stay and hide
– Let me take your heart
End of the line – Off your mind

I just want you to stay the way you are
Proud and tender
I just want us to fade into the light
Like one together

If you come here for real
If that’s how you feel
My arms around you

Let me take you heart off your mind
It’s a beautiful place you keep inside
It’s going to cost you to stay and hide
– Let me take your heart
End of the line – Off your mind

I just want her to know it
I think it’s time
I just want her to see it
The end of the line

Let me take you heart off your mind
It’s a beautiful place you keep inside
It’s going to cost you to stay and hide
– Let me take your heart
End of the line – Off your mind

Can´t answer this

Can’t answer this
What tomorrow is
What I want with you
What I cannot do

I can’t tell you why
Can’t look you in the eye
But I know what’s true

As I watch the most beautiful morning
And I cannot win
And I cannot lose

I will never be
I will never be
The way I am with you

I will never be
I will never be
The way I am with you

Can’t answer this
The weight behind a kiss
Can’t win this time
But I know you’re mine

Take it off my hands
Teach me how to dance
Give it one more chance

And I’m watching an early horizon
As the sky turns blue
I’m still here with you

I will never be
I will never be
The way I am with you

I will never be
I will never be
The morning has a different hue

First man to the grave

Night after night
Day after day
Step by step
We came to this race

And it’s the first man to the grave

Watch this busy street
A million running feet
Running in their lives
In waves and in heaps

And it’s the first man to the grave

My love
Come stay with me tonight
It really matters who we are

Hey my busy friend
It doesn’t matter who will win
Running out of faith
And as long as we’re all in

And it’s the first man to the grave

Words can take us many places
But tonight we are going far

And we who’ve got so many faces
We’ve only got one heart

The first man to the grave

My love
Come stay with me tonight
It truly matters who we are

And see if we can keep the silence
You and I are gonna see the stars

And we who’ve got so many faces
We’ve only got one heart
