Cotton

​​If I stop for a while
Nothing changes outside
Would you notice the difference
Between what I was yesterday and what I'm now?

Sometimes I feel like I'm nothing more than flesh
And I feel the heaviness of being human and limited
Then I wish I could run naked in the streets
Oh, oh, oh

I picked up a cotton thread in an empty corridor
When I tried to change its shape
I knew that its essence would stay the same

Sometimes I feel ​like I'm nothing more than flesh
And I feel the heaviness of being human and limited
Then I wish I could run naked in the street

I'm toasting a marshmallow
It's so sweet and I'm so callow
I wish I could change my flavour
Without changing myself, without being someone else

Sometimes I feel ​like I'm nothing more than flesh 
And I feel the heaviness of being human and limited 
Then I wish I could run naked in the street 

Sometimes I feel ​like I'm nothing more than flesh 
And I feel the heaviness of being human and limited 
Then I wish I could run naked in the street 
Then I wish I could run naked in the street

Oh, oh, oh 


Ryan


I swam in your blue eyes and now I'm drowning 
Ryan, oh Ryan 
I thought we were together but I'm lonely 
Ryan, oh Ryan

I might have maybe idealised 
and thought that I would never ever leave you 
I might have missed relevant signs, 
will I not ever see you again?

Ryan, oh Ryan 
Stay with me on this island 
Ryan, oh Ryan 
I just thought that you would like me too

I like walking without direction 
But I'm tired, I'm tired 
And I thought you'd consider this affection 
Well I am, oh I am...

It's been sunny this afternoon 
but I'm still a bit under the weather 
It would be nice under the moon 
To hold your hand and take you where I am

Ryan, oh Ryan 
Stay with me on this island 
Ryan, oh Ryan 
I just thought that you would like me too

Ryan, walk next to me 
Ryan, didn't you see 
Fire burning the leaves 
Fire around you and me?

Ryan, oh Ryan 
Stay with me on this island 
Ryan, oh Ryan 
I just thought that you would like me too

I'm dry, oh, I'm dry 
I'm drained by this fake fire 
Ryan, oh Ryan 
Should I call you once just once again? 
I just can't get you out of my head 
Would you please reply to my text... bitch


If You Were Me You Would Be


​I should be at my piano writing songs
That’s what I better do
But I need to work to eat
Nobody’s paying my bills

People don’t buy my CDs
They listen to all music for free
Though they enjoy it
They don’t want to pay a fee

But how can I make more If I don’t have bread to eat
How can I ignore my primary needs?

So if you want more, know that I am a human like you
This isn’t magic, I spent money and time on this
And I’m tired, yes I’m tired, of giving my skills for free
If you were me you would be 


I reckon I’m quite good at this 
Would you pardon my modesty?
I have studied for years 
As you’ve done for your degree

But why don’t I deserve any coin for my deeds
Have you ever heard that they don’t grow on trees

So if you want more, know that I am a human like you
This isn’t magic, I spent money and time on this
And I’m tired, yes I’m tired, of giving my skills for free
If you were me you would be 


Yes I’m tired, after this twelve hour shift
Yes I’m tired of a job that doesn’t fit
Yes I’m tired of complaining about this
Yes I’m tired of people not giving a shit
Yes I’m tired of all this competition
I’m tired subject to this position
I’m tired with no recognition
I’m tired of feeling shit

And if you want more know that I am a human like you
This isn’t magic, I spent money and time on this
And I’m tired, yes I’m tired, of giving my skills for free
If you were me you would be 


Feathers


All the beauty that we used to be
It's over, it's over
Burying flames of our eternity
We're under the burden
Of our little insecurities,
We're like pollen in the wind
Looking for a flower to die on
Wavering in discontent

Flapping wings as we look for another place to land
We're tiring our feathers once again
But as I get rid of broken memories of your face
I feel much lighter

Little clouds of joy that we would breathe
Were what made us blunder
Running hand in hand and carelessly
On our hope we stumbled
Wearing out our sweetest souvenirs
Thrown like petals in the stream
Festival of new lives to plunge in
In which you're a distant dream

Flapping wings as I look for a better place to land
I’m tiring my feathers once again
But as I get rid of broken memories of your face
I feel much lighter
I'm lighter, I'm lighter...

I would have rested peacefully 
Until the breeze would call me forth
While snow is falling on this grief 
I'm walking to my own bright sun
So why should I be looking back at you, now?

Flapping wings as we look for another place to land
We're tiring our feathers once again
But as I get rid of broken memories of your face
I feel much lighter
Flapping wings as I look for a better place to land
I’m tiring my feathers once again
But as I get rid of broken memories of your face
I feel much lighter

I'm lighter, I'm lighter...

The Prince


Take me into another land

I'm drowning in this tidal mental head

When I'm looking too far away

I just can't see what is right here

I keep stumbling along the way


Ah ah ah oh oh oh oh

Reveries take me so high

I don't have a place to hide

Ah ah ah oh oh oh

Can somebody see these lights?

Guess I'm not the only one


So I keep going round and round

I wonder where I've lost my crown

I need to rest upon my throne

I'm tired of following rainbows

Through the way I've broken all my bones


Ah ah ah oh oh oh oh 
Reveries take me so high 
I don't have a place to hide 
Ah ah ah oh oh oh
Can somebody see these lights? 
Guess I'm not the only one 


Now it's time to open eyes

To this reality that I am in

Now it's time to be the dream I have

It's time to put me into effect


Ah ah ah oh oh oh oh

Reveries take me so high

I don't have a place to hide

Ah ah ah oh oh oh

Now I know it's time to fight,

Guess I have to move right now



I Need Air ​


This feeling of uncertainty

Seems to fill up everything

Gonna expand till there's no air to breathe


I've been going solo for so long

I'm walking alone and it's so cold


I need air but there's no space

Something went wrong in me and now I'm scared by everything

I don't know how to get out

Don't know how to get away


This sense of misunderstanding

Makes me unable to talk with myself

And maybe that's the worst thing that I've done


I'm almost faded and can't see the light

And so tired, I'm unable to fight


I need air but there's no space 
Something went wrong in me and now I'm scared by everything 
I don't know how to get out 
Don't know how to get away 


I'm running, I'm fighting just to keep myself alive

I'm running, just running trying to reach something someone somehow

I'm running, I'm yelling just to let someone hear me

I'm crying while I'm smiling 'cause I just want to be free now


I've been getting nowhere for too long


I need air but there's no space 
Something went wrong in me and now I'm scared by everything 
I don't know how to get out 
Don't know how to get away

I need air but there's no space

Something went wrong int me and now I'm scared by everything

Don't know how to get away


Risia (You Are So Sweet) ​​


Risia, you are so sweet, oh, I love you so much

Risia, you are so sweet, when you blink your eyes

Risia, you are so sweet, when you mispronounce the words you say

Risia, you are so sweet, would you be my friend?


Hug me, oh, hug me

Cuddle me and caress me

Make me smile, psychoanalyse me

Do it, and I'll do it for you in return 


Risia, you are so sweet, when you try to sing but don't succeed

I love it when you grin and the way you feel free

Oh, you are so sweet, even when you drive me mad

'cause you are so sweet, can I be your friend?


Hug me, oh, hug me
Cuddle me and caress me
Make me smile, psychoanalyse me
Do it, and I'll do it for you in return 


Will you try to understand me?

Relieve me and make me happy?

If you need me to help thee

Be sure that I'll be there to save your ass


Realise ​


Now I realise my past is not here

Even if I lived it, even if I saw it.

I'm asking myself what I've done wrong

I'm wondering what I can do to erase it 


Now I feel so cold looking outside

Because I've tried the best I could

But it seems useless


I've been waiting for so long and now I'm ready

To change my lot 'cause I've noticed, I've noticed

I need more, I need more, I need more


Do you feel the same? Are you happy today?

I see you so far but I'd want you right here

The fear all around is beating you down

Oh... what can I do to save you?


But sometimes my rage comes out

'cause you've left me here

And I am alone now

But I'll get trough somehow


I've been waiting for so long and I'm ready

To change my lot 'cause I've noticed, I've noticed

I need more, I need more, I need more


I've been waiting for so long

And now I'm ready to change my lot


Rain 

I've been waiting here alone for the whole day
The air is cold and my hands are dry
I heard a song that reminds me that he's gone away
Away away away away away


I just want to go outside
Under these grey clouds
All I wish tonight 

Is to have no doubts


'cause everyday is passing me by

And every time I wak up I don't know why
'cause everyday is always the same
Today has been just another bad day

I'm trying to but I can't appease my rage
My hood is already soaking wet
Heavy rain is falling, I just sit and wait
I wait I wait I wait I wait I wait 

So now it's raining on me
but I don't want to move
I just want to sit here
till I've got flu

'cause everyday is passing me by
And everytime I wake up I don't know why
'cause everyday is always the same
Today has been just another bad day

All the raindrops on me are going to dry someday
I am going to miss them as I miss his face
And every time I hurt I'm going to miss that too
'cause every pain I feel teaches me something new
