Track Name: Coming home
On the road to somewhere
Time was passing by
I couldn't find a meaning
Or a reason why
The unknown destination
Was hiding somewhere in the dark
Waiting to be shone on
By a guiding star
Near or far

Now I'm close to somewhere
Life calls out to me
I feel I am discovering
My identity
Everything is clear now
And I did it on my own
Happily I find out
I am not alone
I'm coming home
Track Name: Some action
My life is so exciting
Everyday is fun
I meet the greatest people
And make love in the sun

I travel across the world
Even when I'm in my bed
Cause everything I do
It just happens in my head

I have to stop dreaming now

Time for some action
Time for some action
Time for some action
In the real world

I keep on making plans
That are never carried out
Not risking any failure
For that, I am too proud

People should be friends
But they are enemies instead
I try to tell myself
It just happens in my head

I have to stop dreaming now

Time for some action
Time for some action
Time for some action
In the real world

I asked myself a thousand times:
What is bigger: the world or the mind?
When living virtual it's guilt I feel
So why am I afraid to live for real?
Track Name: Happier when you're here
I look at you
And I know that we are bound
I care for you
In my mind you're all around

And the days I spend with you are never long enough
I cannot live without you but I don't think it is love

It's just
That I feel happier when you're here
And I feel safe when you are near
and both of us know
Our friendship won't grow
By saying 'I love you'

I dance with you
And the sun dispels the rain
I talk to you
And you take away my pain

But when I realize you won't be single endlessly
I somehow fear that we'll be torn apart by jaleousy

But it's just
That I feel happier when you're here
And I feel safe when you are near
and both of us know
Our friendship won't grow
By saying 'I love you'

But, in a way, I do
Track Name: Could we have another start
In every place, in every town
In each familiar kind of sound
You haunt my mind, you're all around

Thought that I could let you go
So many things left unexplored
Still all I do leads back to you

Been to far off places
That I dreamed about for long
Met many faces, looked around
But nothing satisfied this heart
Could we have another start?

I took for granted all we had
Yearning for more, so discontent
My friends said: go be free again

I played around, was on the hunt
Always company in bed
While thoughts of you were in my head

You don't return all my calls
Won't see me anymore
You have changed but so have I
I learned the hard way, payed the price
Could we have another start?

I played around, was on the hunt
Always company in bed
While thoughts of you were in my head
So now I'm back waiting for you
To take me back, I lost track
Of all that mattered I want back

You don't return all my calls
Won't see me anymore
You have changed but so have I
I learned the hard way, payed the price
Could we have another start?
