Looking Up to the Sky (2005)

01. READY TO FLY

My shoes are on the chair
My soul is on the floor
I walk and I walk
Then I open the door

In the evening light
And the TV screens
Planes cross the skies
Where all dreams begin

So easy to shine
Shooting so high
Dumbfounded inside
Ready to fly

I could be anywhere
As the blue turns to black
Could be nowhere
As well as on track

Only few thin clouds
Between us and the stars
The world spinning quietly
Taking me far

So easy to shine
Shooting so high
Dumbfounded inside
Ready to fly

So easy to shine
Shooting so high
Dumbfounded inside
Ready to fly
02. TIRED BUSINESSMAN

Cornfields in the haze
The power lines keep me awake
Another working day awaits
Its grey already on my face

And station after station
I close my eyes and try to sleep
I wonder if I can still dream

A man is reading Windows step by step
Passion or job he isn't tired of that
Maybe he found a meaning
For everything

A girl is talking on the phone
She still believes in her new job
She's falling standing up again
I'm only a tired businessman

And station after station
I close my eyes and try to sleep
I wonder if I can still dream

Good times pass good times are gone
Then I was able to love
Then I used to be sincere
And all my projects were so weird

And station after station
I close my eyes and try to sleep
I wonder if I can still dream
03. TAKE ME AWAY

So came the rain
And the pain went away
So came the night
And the lights got awake
I'm on the train
To the farthest place on the railways

Take me away
From the lamplit streets seen so many times
From traffic jams and endless lights
Ah take me high
In the darkest skies

Please make me fly
Deep into this night

So came a wave
Of memories and lies
So came the tears
And the sound of goodbyes
I'm running from
All this and this city skyline

Take me away
From the outskirts flats and the restless cranes
From roundabouts and motorways
Ah take me high
In the darkest skies
Please make me fly
Deep into this night

Take me away
From the outskirts flats and the restless cranes
From roundabouts and motorways
Ah take me high
In the darkest skies
Please make me fly
Deep into this night

04. HOTEL

The hills move slowly
Behind the trees
Beyond there's
The sea

I forgot something
At the hotel
That must be my suitcase

We arrived yesterday
Have already left
Last night I wasn't
In my bed

I forgot something
At the hotel
That must be my lover of a night
05. SUMMER IS HERE

Summer is here
There is nothing to fear
Girls are all out
And familiar with tears

Walking around just to find
We always get home
Chasing the last glimpse of love
And dreams left alone

Summer is here
And the night is so clear
Girls are all out
With familiar fears

Boys come and go
While the falling stars blow
Wishes and pearls
From a future unknown

Walking around just to find
We always get home
Chasing the last glimpse of love
And dreams left alone
Bound to the lights of the signs
Set to point out the road
Cos finding the way is so hard
When you walk all alone

Going around just to find
We're always back home
Yet finding the way is so hard
When you walk all alone
06. CHANGES

D'you see how much time we spend
Driving trying to find somewhere to go
But maybe the place we're looking for
Never existed

D'you see how much time we spend
Going round and round
But then we're always stuck in town
Looking for a friend a girl sometimes

Green turning to yellow
Turning to red
Young turning to shallow
Turning to mad

Just think how many times we talked
Of how we'd like our lives to change
But in the end it's only a pint
Before we say next time

I remember how I felt
When my life was on the brink of success
I thought I want to go back
And try to find a place for myself

Green turning to yellow
Turning to red
Young turning to mellow
Turning to sad
	
Green turning to yellow
Turning to red
Young turning to shallow
Turning to mad
07. SPLIT-UP

Under the same tree
Under the same sky
Under the same roof
But with a different mind

Watching the things we love
Watching the stars above
Holding a cup of tea
Crying we need to be free

Watching the things we love
Watching the stars above
Holding a cup of tea
Crying we need to be free

Me and you
Together with glue
When did we start
To break ourselves apart?

Wearing the same dress
Reading the same lines
Faking the same smile
But with a different mind

Watching the things we love
Watching the stars above
Holding a cup of tea
Crying we need to be free

Watching the things we love
Watching the stars above
Holding a cup of tea
Crying we need to be free

Me and you
Together with glue
When did we start
To break ourselves apart?

Under the same tree
Under the same sky
Under the same roof
But with a different mind

Watching the things we love
Watching the stars above
Holding a cup of tea
Crying we need to be free

Watching the things we love
Watching the stars above
Holding a cup of tea
Crying we need to be free

Me and you
Together with glue
When did we start
To break ourselves apart?
08. EVERY DAY

Love is a glass of wine
With an unwanted smile
Love is a happy face
Under the pouring rain and...

I will come and save you
For everyone's just trying to tame you
I wanna be the one you dream at night
And the one you live for in the day

Love is the scent of May
The wait for a landing plane
Love is the bigger wave
All that you just can't say and...

I will come and save you
For everyone's just trying to cage you
I wanna be the one you dream at night
And the one you live for in the day

Love is a warm embrace
A kiss on a weeping face
Love is the hug you need
When life's getting just too weird and...

I will come and save you
For everyone's just trying to blame you
I wanna be the one you dream at night
And the one you live for in the day

I will come and save you
For everyone's just trying to tame you
I wanna be the one you dream at night
And the one you live for in the day
Wanna be the one you dream at night
And the one you live for in the day
Every day. Every day.


(ghost track. NOTHING'S GOING RIGHT)

If I look north what I see
Is the mountains and the fields
If I look west what I see
Is the road and the hills

Now look in here
Just look at me
I'm as sad as a man can be
Nothing's wrong with my life
Yet nothing's going right

I used to live far above
Storms and rainbows of love
I used to live far apart
From the letters and the stars

Now look in here
Just look at me
I'm as sad as a man can be
Nothing's wrong with my life
Yet nothing's going right

If I look out what I see
Is the sunshine on the trees
If I look up what I see
Is the blue sky ah so big

Now look in here
Just look at me
I'm as sad as a man can be
Nothing's wrong with my life
Yet nothing's going right

Nothing's going right
Nothing's going right
Yeah nothing's going right
