You stay

Since there are no shadows left
since then I can fly
I saw my body in that bed
one part stays, another leaves
There's just half an hour left
I arrived here so late.
Three words are left
but I know you'll listen.
Who am I to judge you?
What am I waiting for?
If the grudge is not mine
I won't use it.
I will show you my house
but it's at another place.
I will not be able to see you anymore
but I know you will listen.
Who am I to judge you?
What am I waiting for?
If the grudge is not mine
I won't use it.
You stay, you don't leave.
You stay, you don't leave.

Little

It's not cold outside
and it makes me desperate
not to blossom again.
It's very dark
behind this wall
you don't see me
you don't see me
I don't feel the fire anymore
and I'm going blind
and I don't know
I don't know
and the truth is this
and sometimes it's hard for me to understand
that I don't know.
I'm living very slowly
I'm tasting very little
and I hear so many voices
that don't know me
that don't see
that I don't know
if I'm inside
because I don't find myself.
And you don't see me.
You don't see me.
I'm living very slowly
I'm tasting very little
and I don't feel the fire anymore
and I'm going blind
and I don't know
the truth is this
and it's almost always hard for me
to understand
that I don't know it
that I don't know it.

Chords

1.
The most beautiful chord will be A major;
the fingers do not break when we are playing it.
It helped me to win a beautiful girl with an absolute pitch;
each evening we fill a balloon by hot air.
 
2.
In a stratosphere, we play A major;
even though people we know laugh at us.
Then, when we are drunk from happiness as fiddlers;
it is enough to play A minor instead of A major.
 
3.
A minor cools down all the feelings;
we fall to the ground on our bottoms.
We will lie in the grass and look up;
until the time tunes us at least to A flat major.
 
Refrain:
From the A flat major, there is only a bit to A major;
that is why I want to say to all that have broken hearts:
Spin out your handkerchiefs and do not be sad;
every girl has an absolute pitch for somebody.
 
4.
In everybody, there is a chord sounding, without them knowing it;
let us thus try not to be deaf to each other.
The whole world is one concert of human souls;
but nothing makes the heart beating like A major.
 
*
For those who do not like that A major,
I could try play, for instance, C sharp major...

The Journey

Come with me to witness everything,
Where it all began behind the blocks
Until then I'll keep my style; an expatriate
Kogalniceanu (1), Cismigiu (2) just as you enter the park
 
From Balta Alba Salajan (3), from the statue upwards
I'm marching towards Carol, Rahova and Teius (4)
Margeanului, 139 is working on street Porumbacu from Crangasi,(5)
I choose route 21 that goes to Colentina (6), passing Obor
I'm going to see my father who is shopping at Dragonu (7)
We talk about mom, home, life, the days that will come
It's odd that we haven't talked for years.
 
Chorus x2
(Pacha Man)
And I walk these empty streets
When everyone is sleeping
I carry with me joys and sorrows
I'm not tired, cold or hungry
 
(Sisu)
I travel with the thought beyond any limit that you could impose
What could you say?
Yes, we have more bass than thunder in our sound
And the words are always shaped as the soul wants
In the car I'm rolling a skunk, better get me a blunt
Add 2 grams so I can truly get high
We are walking on the boulevard , everything becomes blurred
This f*cking c*nt won't shut her mouth, my head is spinning
She wants to know what we've recorded so far, but I'm gone
Searching for inspiration for what I'm about to do
It's an endless geo - physical war inside us
They wan't to brain wash us, I want to stimulate their heart muscle
So if you want to be a man keep a cold heart
This is a journey through all 6 sectors (8)
And your feet must stay firm on the ground
So you ain't gonna fly like the birds in the sky
 
Charus 2x
(Pacha Man)
And I walk these empty streets
When everyone is sleeping
I carry with me joys and sorrows
I'm not tired, cold or hungry
 
(Cedry2k)
Luica, Resita, I'm making right
On the same path filled with holes
25 years ago I was running exactly on this street, with a big backpack, on my way to school
And I was also adding life lessons taught by the streets
On this street 15 years ago we were getting drunk, getting high,we woke up
We were fighting, we were bounding, that how things were
But now, enough with all of these
And poverty was passed by the pride
We forgot how to smile when we hear Tociu's jokes (9)
I left the hyperbole of the servants
And I'm searching for peace all the way on the Chestnuts alley
I don't fear the cops, but I pay attention on my surroundings
Because many f*cktarts paid to get their driving licence
I'm evaluating the time in question , that's what keeps me busy
I evaluate space in the pause
It's a long road, I hope time will be on my side
Stay safe friends, God bless!
 
Chorus x2
(Pacha Man)
And I walk these empty streets
When everyone is sleeping
I carry with me joys and sorrows
I'm not tired, cold or hungry

And the world ate me

I don't recognize my body crawling through the streets of the city centre
And this rubbish hits me so badly
They are not my friends and I know
The fate is inside
I don't even remember how to pray
And even if I could see it, I could not distinguish it
I wanted to eat the world
And the world ate me
If I could remember how I fell into this hell
Mom cries from home but she doesn't come see me
I don't know how much strength is left
I hate this place
Please take me home, I can't anymore
There are almost no memories from my real life
Today I'd give it all to get it back
I keep some dreams, that isn't so bad
They don't have a sentence and they don't want to dictate it
It's two years until yesterday, Christmas without exit
I wanted to eat the world
And the world ate me
If I could remember how I fell into this hell
Mom cries from home but she doesn't come see me
If I could remember how I fell into this hell
Mom cries from home but she doesn't come see me
She never came to see me

When Mommy Goes to Work Early

When Mommy goes to work early,
then I stay at home.
I tie on an apron
and sweep the room out.
 
I can't cook the food,
I'm too little for that.
But I've often wiped up the dust.
How happy Mommy will be!
 
I also have a dolly,
it's so sweet and nice.
All by myself, I can
be a good mommy to my dolly.

He's Younger

He’s young, he was born later and doesn’t understand, why his father’s saying
that all Serbs should hang on the willows,
How to explain that he happens to love her, love a Serbian woman
Happens to be Milan’s daughter, how to explain to his father who had a shrapnel in him
His whole squad was killed by Serbs
How to explain the game in which he was always first in line,
That she was born in Zagreb in 85’
Same as himself, and that now she happens to be carrying
His child
The old man will need Xanax like she needs beer
Then, when all this started, when she was with him on the class trip
 
They are urban children, they run off to exes and to parties,
They don’t care about helping animals nor Communist parties,
They only like Dinamo, and Edi and Tuzda,
They’re pacificsts and boycott everything made in the USA,
They’re the capital, Aquarius they are Radio 101,
If you ask them who’s the president, they will say “I don’t know,”
It’s too late for an abortion, but in truth, they don’t want one
They love each other, both mature, they want their child.
 
“I have a plan,” he would say to them, “Mom and Dad, this is Ana,”
That’s what everyone calls her anyway, she’ll let it go and won’t say her real name is Milana
But no…no…, they would find out sooner or later,
The old man likes when I’m honest, that’s why I’ll go tell them now
Travno, use the elevator and onto the 4th floor
Last name Marušić, his mother opens the door for them
“Good evening, hi Mom, the cabbage rolls smell nice,
This is my girlfriend;”
“Pleased to meet you Mrs., my name is Milana.”
“I am Maria, come in, dinner will be ready soon, help yourself.”
 
“You’re in amazing shape, head towards the dinner table, I’ll be there soon.”
Dad is sitting at the table with a beer, smoking a Kolumbo cigarette
On the wall hangs Franjo Tudjman, a souvenir from the war, a bayonet.
“Who is that my eyes see, Jesus Almighty, my son,”
He firmly shakes my hand which is sweaty and asks, “What is your name,”
“Milana,” she answers softly, “And I’m really pleased to meet you.”
“Last name? It doesn’t matter…Actually…, it does little girl, it does matter!
You bring Chetniks into my house, you have balls!”
“That’s not the entire story old man, Milana’s pregnant with my child,
3 months now, we came here to tell you the news
And then we’ll leave and stop by her parents, Milan and Jele,
“Franjo, that’s their life, let our children do what they want.”
“Mama, we came here to tell you first that we’re getting married.”
“If you think you’re marrying her, they the little boy can comfortably get the fuck out
Of the apartment, but we both know, you have nowhere to go!”
He just got up from the table, looked at Milana, and told her:
“Milana, come one, let’s get the fuck out of here!”
 
“Ivan, stop!” Ivan stopped, his father fell to the ground,
His father fell into tears, in his right hand, a fuse,
His father is sobbing, in his left hand a bomb from Kragujevac,
His heart is rattling him and he states, “Oh, not my children,
there’s no difference whether this Serbian shrapnel explodes, or, whether I have a Serbian grandchild,
both would hurt the same, they would both result in my death!”
 
“Listen to me father,
I’ve had enough of you and war,
Of Ustashas and Chetniks, Partisans and Home Guards,
I love her more than you love this country,
Tudjman and the generals,
I love her and I don’t give a shit about anyone else,
She’s my applause, she’s my Operation Storm,
My Church and my Pope
She is my souvenir from the war,
An UNPROFOR coat,
She is my Hague bench,
Her and the child are more important to me than you and all that combined!”
 
His father froze, he’s not moving, he can’t say a word,
Maria is using her calming hands on his arms,
Within the room, torment and noise is coming from the stereo,
The stereo is playing and Mate Bulić ”The Pine Trees are Burning,”
“It burns, it burns, you motherfuckers”
He’s burning on the inside as he watches his son, who doesn’t give two shits about him
He really is happy with that Chetnik bitch
He’s watching his Ivan, his own child, how brave and bold he is, like himself in the 90s,
But he’s currently not ready for all that, he’s ready to desert him
And he's not indifferent, he’ll live without the help of his mother and father,
Prideful, but afraid, he's leaving the street Božidara Markovca Travnog with Milana,
He’s holding Milana’s hand firmly,
“I love you” says the kid to the other kid,
Everything will be okay, TRUST ME! DON”T WORRY”
Ivan started yelling, no no no no
They heard the explosion from the Kragujevac bomb upon entering the Utrina neighborhood,
Just before HGSPOT, Ivan bent over and started sobbing,
On the Zagreb asphalt, now, it’s as if he knows what is war…

Love Me Or Leave Me Alone

Love me or leave me alone
Let this night that turns into dawn
Be the end and a new beginning at the same time,
I want you only for me,
I have eyes for nobody else,
But you don't believe me and want to live alone.
 
You're the only love in my heart,
My only joy in life,
And if it happens that you don't stay close beside me,
My embrace will be empty,
Let us be, forever, alone together.
 
Love me or leave me alone
Let this night that turns into dawn
Be the end and a new beginning at the same time,
I want you only for me,

But you don't believe me and want to live alone.
 
You're the only love in my heart,
My only joy in life,
I love you and if you stay close beside me
And if you give your heart to me tonight,
I will be for you 1 you will be for me,
That kind of love will live forever.

I Still Live For You

Days of fire
I spent away from you.
Nights of silence
That I never forgot.
 
As much as I want to
Erase the past,
Your two eyes
Are turned on lights.
 
In my dark side,
In my grey dreams,
It's not a lie there,
I still live for you.
 
In my dark side
I touch you in my dreams
And I live for that lie,
I still live for you.
 
I still live for you.
 
It's bitter,
I've lost you forever.
You're here,
I never forgot.

Everybody's Gone Deaf

So many people forgot
That the truth didn't change
When peace was taught
Few people paid attention
My friend, come back soon
Come teach my people
That love is important
Come say all this again
 
So many people forgot
That love only brings good things
That cowardice is deaf
And only listens to what it likes
But, my friend, come back soon
Come look for my people
That love is important
Come say all this again
 
So many people
Strayed from the path of light
Not many people remembered
The message written on the cross
My friend, come back soon
Come teach my people
That love is important
Come say all this again

Love Bird

When I am to sing
A thunder in the air
Agitated wave in the river
A heated arrow
My image translates
Into a light over the waters
The scream of the fish
Party in the woods
 
I'm gonna crown you
A desire of my tongue
I'm a trap for you
The unveiled snake
A red puma
In your own hand
Tangling your heart
 
It won't be your expertise
Of abandoning a woman
One day the woods rebelled
You won't tear the canvas of my skin
Of a love bird
 
It won't be your expertise
Of abandoning a woman
One day the woods rebelled
You won't tear the canvas of my skin
Of a love bird
 
I go under the sky of my home
Where my mother sleeps
I only get saved if I sing
It's raining now
We're the tears of always
It's raining
Now
We're the tears of always
It's raining, it's raining now
We're the tears of always
It's raining, it's raining now
We're the tears of always
It's raining
Now
Tears
We're the tears of always
It's raining

I won't get through to you

I don't know the word.
I don't even know your shadow.
I don't know the thoughts.
Body language is too hard.
Fingerprints are very unreadable.
Eyes are dancing as if I didn't existed for them.
Will I get to know from newspapers what you feel now?
Will I get to know someday how you draw me in your head?
 
I won't get through to you
I won't get through to you
I won't get through to you
No, I'll never get through!
 
I won't get through to you
I won't get through to you
I won't get through to you
No, I'll never get through!
 
My words, vultures around your shadow.
I'm not landing, the sound wave is too short.
The attempts of constant confrontation are too clumsy.
Lips are silent to keep the fear away, uuuh
 
I won't get through to you
I won't get through to you
I won't get through to you
No, I'll never get through!
 
Screams are spreading on the east shore.
They're rushing with the wind to be heard.
The mirage is slowly fading.
The ideal plan is short-winged.
 
In the blink of an eye, head buried in the sand.
I pretend hiding the fear.
Running ahead in a blind rush.
I feel in my bones that
 
When I get through to you,
I'll bring to you through the door
all my vulture words
so that you can trust me.
 
No, no, no, no,
I won't get through...
No, I'll never get through!
No, I'll never get through!

I'll cauterize my bleeding wound
I suffer, but I'll still conceal it
Your words won't touch me
You won't have enough strength
 
Like running, I'll jump to death
I'll be squashed, but will rise again
You're not strong enough to get me
Your words don't hurt, you don't have enough strength
 
Don't look so hurt, nobody sees it
They say from heart, but there's noone listening
Like a fugitive, I didn't look back
Tears are flowing only within me
 
You're not strong enough to get me
Your words don't hurt, you don't have enough strength

Everything is a feast

Something, really, is running here
Something inconceivable, scary
You also cried 'present'
Take the city of the dead
 
Everything is a feast
Everything is a feast
A rain around resonates
 
Everything is a feast
Dead skeletons
Freezing cold
And they have all lost their speech
 
One voice
In the past
Leave the city
The dead
 
I hide here,
A little lower
Sword teeth
And the eyes like a fire
 
Behind the stairs
I am, kids
Fingers-Snakes
And spiders for hair
 
Everything is a feast
Everything is a feast
A scene terrible,
Dark ceremony
 
Waltz like it will
Sing
It gets to your ears
With a screaming
 
A celebration
So erotic
Something unusual
It will happen to you
 
Parts awesome
You have not even imagined it
Someone is hiding
To scare you
 
Bum!
Everything is a feast
Secret, sad
Were you afraid?
 
Nah! Not us!
 
In the past, at 'two
At one hundred thousand
One way
Without going back
 
Shiver loudly
Speak loudly
Leave the city
Of the dead
 
I'm a clown
With a sweet face
Look, me
Now I'm going away
 
I'm the voice
Like tears dripping
I'm the wind
That scares you all
 
I'm the night
The blurred shadow
The nightmare
Who is looking for you
 
Everything is a feast
Everything is a feast
A scene terrible,
Dark ceremony
 
A celebration
A celebration
 
A gangway
Sharp
Without fear
What is life?
 
Maybe
Your soul comes out
Nevertheless
We are good
 
A celebration
So erotic
Something unusual
It will happen to you
 
Our leader
It will come from behind
It will scare you so much
Where will you be dirty
 
Everything is a feast
Let's go!
Music, kids
Let the king pass
 
Our leader
Jack is 'The Skeleton'
All together:
Long live our king!
 
Everything is a feast

I like straight talk
So let's get serious
You want me, I want you
We're just like lego
So fit in and leave your ego out of this
 
If you're coming I want you, If you're coming I want you
So fit in and leave your ego out of this
If you're coming I want you, If you're coming I want you
Come to stay
 
Come to my place
Leave things as they are
I've told you, I want your love
My road is to find you
 
Come to my place
It has everything for us
If I'm enough for you and you're enough for me
Let's leave it all alone
 
If you're coming I want you, If you're coming I want you

Songwriting and Coffee

Living on the absolute minimum, living in a small six tatami mat room
It would be great if I could live with you, that was all I was thinking of at the time
If the colour of happiness is translucent then it would be better not to see it
Today came to an end even though nothing happened
 
Living on the absolute minimum, living in a small six tatami mat room
Staring at the ceiling every day, not thinking of anything
The price of happiness is sixty thousand yen
Subtract rent it’s four thousand yen
Fish for memories from that blurry mind
 
I ended up talking about love with cold eyes
This cold coffee is also the same —
I hate it
 
I don’t understand I don’t understand
I don’t understand I don’t understand
Turn into memory, you’re becoming a bother
I don’t understand I don’t understand
I don’t understand I don’t understand
I don’t understand
That confident gait
Or how to say goodbye
 
With the smallest volume, in a room that’s gotten slightly bigger
I scribbled about the stopped gas, my memories and the coldness of the shower
If I were to sell my years I would leave two
And with that remaining I would go to that town
To fish for memories with my left over years
 
The clear weather, night festival, Sekimachi’s streetlights
Clouds, mirages, the diagonally arranged lyrics
It’s just a play on words
 
I don’t understand I don’t understand
I don’t understand I don’t understand
Turn into memory, you’re turning into a song
I don’t understand I don’t understand
I don’t understand I don’t understand
I don’t understand these methods of forgetting
Or how to use them now
 
I tried to write your poem in these cold eyes
I live every day for you now
 
While forgetting about them all — Dreams, transience, your mouth, those fingertips
Hey look, it’s about time for this song to come to an end
 
It’s finally your turn, hey
 
I don’t understand I don’t understand
I don’t understand I don’t understand
Turn into a memory, you, turn into a song
I don’t understand I don’t understand
I don’t understand I don’t understand
I don’t understand
That people can walk away
I don’t understand that it’s only natural
I don’t understand

Without You

How strange love is
At its beginning you love
And at its end you hurt
And I'm here walking alone
In a dark road
That has no end
 
Because all is over
And you've gone away now
 
Without you, I'm nothing
A lost dot on the map
Without you, I'm alone
And through my angst I cry for me
Without you, my love
Know that I will die
Without you, my baby
Know that I will do the bad thing
 
I would like you to tell me how you were able
To falsely swear
By love
If you only knew how much you hurt me
You played with the heart
Of the man that loves you
 
Because all is over
And you've gone away now
 
Without you, I'm nothing
A lost dot on the map
Without you, I'm alone
And through my angst I cry for me
Without you, my love
Know that I will die
Without you, my baby
Know that I will do the bad thing
 
Without you, I'm nothing
A lost dot on the map
Without you, I'm alone
And through my angst I cry for me (x2)
Without you

You never existed

I'm trying to keep our good moments
But at night, our bad finale
Runs through my mind as if it was yesterday
It's only a phase, it will pass I said
But so much love
Can't be erased with a delete button
 
If it can't go away differently, I'll say it even if it hurts
You never existed even though I fell in love with you so hard
If it can't go away differently, I'll say it even if it hurts
You never existed even if I regret it
 
You've already forgotten about me, it's easy for you
There's only fixation on my end
My whole life missing
I must do something to get my mind out of the gutter
What if I don't believe it, I now want to scream it out loud
So I can hear it myself
 
If it can't go away differently, I'll say it even if it hurts
You never existed even though I fell in love with you so hard
If it can't go away differently, I'll say it even if it hurts
You never existed even if I regret it

Balkan

Chorus:
 
I cant sleep peacefully,
It leads to sin when I drink,
I give-I make cash to cash out,
Body, white, it waits for me, it glows, like Colombia.
We make a show,
You talked about me, now everybody is like me,
Everybodys like “wow”
You spit on me, now everybody is like me.
 
Right player, unfair game. What they say, doesn’t bother me. O mama mia, in a city of crime, only she complains.
Nights I work, then I sleep during the day, because I opened yesterday like a neckline.
But I have a gift, yeah, and its a plan, yeah.
My gang, dirty, moisture like Vandam, yeah.
We shine like gold, yeah, we are the strength, yeah!
 
Dirty money and crime,
Sluts and casinos, thats what the Balkans are serving me,
how can I be normal?
I pack the club, while you speak, light the kush so you burn it, all thats left is your jealousy.
I’ve been through everything, yeah yeah, stop playing, don’t play.
I take out a gram yeah yeah, she takes off my belt, takes off my belt.
I have no shame, yeah yeah, everything is high, everything is high.
Full lungs, and Dirty Sprite.

Houses and cars bought on loans, and starlet elites,
this is Balkan, nobodys at fault, but everyones faulty,
for dirty business, theres no limit, false alibi,
now everyone who is popular, bro, they sold their property.
 
I’ve been through everything, yeah, yeah, stop playing,
Summers we’re at sea, winters we ski on the gram, yeah, yeah, here it isn’t like Paradise, MVP like Mike (Jordan), yeah, we play until the end.
 
Soul black like Ghana,
ganja from Tirana,
When the bullets celebrate, everyone has to know us.
From Belgrade, a white lady, at night to two locations,
in Sofia I pull up my car in Skopje my gang waits for me.
Everyone wants to ride this train,
If the game is a whore, I’m Macro,
Tonny Sosa, Toni drinks, me in the nose.
Here they love us like Broz.

What did I miss never been to great Paris?

elucidative translation by Dmytro Zelenskyy
May 7th, 2018
 
What did I miss never been to great Paris?
Watching for years Holy Child and Saint Mary
since shepherds’ inn under Bethlehem heavens’
bright stars and deep* skies brought me to Revelations.
 
Breaks into pieces the old inventory,
lines on wallpapers may vanish; thefts stories
of whole wealth loss are quite common – but colors
of skies above clouds always blue for His glory:
 
five barley loaves may feed the multitudes;
water turns wine – souls enjoy life-time duties,
so guests and friends are not leaving; and lucid
views of small white clouds emphasize blue skies beauty.
 
What are those lights over pathway-s to \at crossing-s?
Black and white stripes mark our luck and misfortunes.
– Go, go on green. Halt on red, – and in pause
look above clouds: the blue skies are for cause.
 
Life often challenge your mind by* unreal;
foam over tides holds the mud, keeps waves clear,
then sea steps back leaving sand shore area
gold* under blue skies – that turns you to believer.

The Postman

There was a young man from afar
Who carried a letter for me
Ah! Oh
He came to my door
Ah! Oh...
 
He smiled and said that someone
Missed me far away
And asked me to unfold the letter
And reply to him after reading it
 
So that the postman could told him it all
Why it was unexpected
So strange, out of expectations
Ah! Oh...
The mysterious postman
Ah! Eh-oh...
 
He was so abrupt
That made my heart race and made me doubt
He addressed no name or surname
How could I trust such a young man
Ah! Oh
The mysterious postman
Do tell me, what you are thinking about
 
Don't let time go by like this
Because the past just can't be brought back
Please do tell me
What you are thinking about
I know that you love me

Without a Home

So many a battle beaten
So many maidens kissed
Traveled half the world
The sails always hoisted
 
I've grasped at happiness
Saw Godfather Death
Whistled the freedom song
Could never stand still
 
I was at home everywhere
And yet without a home1
The longing unfulfilled
My dreams were huge
 
I'm back in your circle
I was gone for much too long
But now I'm here again
 
Take my hand
Turn around in circles
Forget your worries
Drown your mind
Take my hands
Turn around in circles
Forget your worries
Come take my hand
 
Have climbed many a mountain
Maybe I've lost the trail
I may never arrive
Born as a wanderer
 
I was at home everywhere
And yet without a home
The longing unfulfilled
My dreams were huge
 
I'm back in your circle
I was gone for much too long
But now I'm here again
 
Take my hand
Turn around in circles
Forget your worries
Drown your mind
Take my hands
Turn around in circles
Forget your worries
Come take my hand [x2]
 
  • 1. 'Heimatlos' could be translated as homeless, but I chose to say 'without a home' because it fits this context better. He is not referring to living on the street, but rather to being without a home by choice, more like a vagabond.

The Desire for You

Then we decided together
that this was the right thing to do,
and we never saw each other again.
If we did not run into each other, that was it.
 
And now, no!
I am not going to feel guilty because
the desire for you remained.
 
And we had a good time together—
we had everything.
By everything, I mean you—
you brought happiness to us.
 
And now, no, it is not right
to feel guilty because
the desire for you remained.
 
~~~~~
 
And now, no, it is not right

Black Angel

Come here to me, embrace me softly
With your wings you bring me the night
The blue moon and your face
Kiss me again, I just want you
 
Black angel, kiss my hot heart
Black angel, drink from my pain
Black angel, it pulls me toward you
Half full of hate, half full of greed
Black angel, warm me, I'm so cold
Black angel, come to me, I'm calling you
In your wings, hold me tight tonight
You know well that I can't be without you
 
You are the illusion of my lust
The black heart in my chest
We've been banished to the darkness
I've lit a light for you there
 
Black angel, kiss my hot heart
Black angel, drink from my pain
Black angel, it pulls me toward you
Half full of hate, half full of greed
Black angel, warm me, I'm so cold
Black angel, come to me, I'm calling you
In your wings, hold me tight tonight
You know well that I can't be without you

It Does Not End Here

I sailed seas and skies against the wind.
I endured every good and bad moment and still
I have faith in people.
I shook hands and wrote pages under my name.
I have given my daughter my last name and now
that is the most important thing.
 
Because now I am half
of an inconsistent life
that takes and gives a little,
but never gets close to its goal.
 
It does not end here—
(on this stage where it was exciting—)
without a reason—
(share music with the heart and the mind).
It does not end here
and the guitar still plays softly.
It does not end here.
 
I have seen highways and tiny towns—
skyscrapers and houses with clothes hanging out to dry, and still,
I have not seen a single thing.
I have had a thousand women and have loved only one.
With a hundred cars, I chased after my luck and still,
I have so much to say
 
Because I am only half way
along my impatient journey
that starts from here
with the strength that love gives.
 
It does not end here—
(on this stage where it was exciting—)
without a reason—
(share music with the heart and the mind).
It does not end here
and the guitar still plays softly.
It does not end here.
 
You know why—I was born again.
 
~~~~~
 
It does not end here—
(on this stage where it was exciting—)
without a reason to share music
(with the heart and the mind.)
I start from here
and the guitar still plays softly.
It does not end here.

I saw your message, babe
There was nothing wrong with it
But part of what you write still hurt
I know you miss having someone to hold
And it’s all my fault, or was it?
I saw your message, babe.
It didn’t make sense
But I understood the intention
And I’m just wondering, does she know about me or what?
Have you thought about the consequences?
 
Give me time
I’ll be there soon
Give me time
 
So if you just come lay down here
I could wrong but I believe
That if you just lay down here
Maybe it’ll help?
If you just lay down here
I could be wrong, but I believe
That if you just lay down here
Maybe it’ll help?
 
It took time to build up
But it didn’t take long to take it apart
I can see that you’re not here in front of me
I’m eating breakfast, eating dinner
With only silence to keep me company
‘Cause I saw your message babe
And you know this is going to fast for me
To turn something small into something big
That’s the problem
And I’m starting over even though I know better
 
Give us time
It’ll come soon
Give us time
 
So if you just come lay down here
I could wrong but I believe
That if you just lay down here
Maybe it’ll help?
If you just lay down here
I could be wrong, but I believe
That if you just lay down here
Maybe it’ll help?
 
If you just lay down here
You just need to lay down here with me
Just stay with me awhile longer
 
So if you just come lay down here
I could wrong but I believe
That if you just lay down here
Maybe it’ll help?
If you just lay down here
I could be wrong, but I believe
That if you just lay down here
Maybe it’ll help?

Twilight

Versions: #2
The twilight, it settles in
when your shadow touches me,
but I don’t want to be so weak
that your breath tempts me
 
Your curse cannot tempt me
You can’t pull me into your spell
I won’t howl with the wolves
No, I won’t be a nobody
I won’t dance into your chains
And I won’t be your slave
You’re pretending you want to rescue me
I scream into the night
 
Ice cold is the rubble
in which you imprison yourself
You recognize neither friend nor foe,
the twilight has long since united them
 
I won’t dance into your chains
And I won’t be your slave
You’re pretending you want to rescue me
I scream into the night
