Track Name: I Am Born
I am born with feet to walk
I am born with a voice to sing
So I’m travelling around the countries
And I’m searching for the melodies

I am born with a dream
I am born to stand against the winds
Oh that’s what keeps me going
Oh that’s what makes me feel free

I am searching in the mountains
I am searching in the seas
For to find my other side
Yeah my other side of me

I am born to be here
I am born for to sing to you
Oh I’m telling you my story
That visions may come true

May you search in the mountains
May you search in the seas
May you find your other side
Yeah your other side you don’t see
Track Name: Human Race
I’m sitting in the rain
Since I stand it is the same
If I don’t move I’ll get wet down to my bones
So it is time to move ahead

He is chained at his purse
If he moves it’s getting worse
The only key is to let the money be
So he stays bound at his place

She gets forced to be nice
To always smile has its price
When she’s on her own she feels hated and alone
Her feelings turn in to ice

We are called the human race
We all have a similar face
But what separates us from ourselves is
Our different kinds to go ways
Track Name: Train to Nowhere
I’m taking a train that leads to nowhere
And how far it takes me I don’t care
If you ask me why that I do leave
I will tell you that I disagree
I disagree what’s going on
With all these lies we are living from

Oh I really want to understand
I really want to know
Oh I really wish to understand
Why we’re not changing
Yes and why we’re not changing

And I hope it takes me far away
So that I can’t stop nor can I stay
If you ask me what I’m hiding from
I will tell you that I’m loving wrong
I hope that my heart one day sees
That the one it loves never can be

Oh I really want to understand
I really want to know
Oh I really wish to understand
Why we’re not changing
Yes and why we’re not changing
Track Name: Time Not Long Ago
There was a time not long ago, with friends I used to talk
They talked about another friend that wasn’t here, not near.
I asked about where he could be but the others didn’t answer me
They said “we don’t talk about him, he took LSD”

There was a time not long ago, I used to go out long
Bright colours shining in my eyes, loud music made me dance
We danced through all the nights along, we’re never tired, we’re never cold and
The time stopped moving for us, we took LSD

To the colours of the childhood, our feet don’t touch the ground
All the earth is watching at us, do you hear the endless sound?
To the colours of the childhood, our feet don’t touch the ground
All the earth is watching at us, do you hear the endless sound?

There was a time not long ago when something made me change
My heart was speaking loudly, my wings did start to stir
I opened up my eyes to see, my friends will never follow me
I got my experience, good bye to LSD

To the colours of the childhood, our feet don’t touch the ground
All the earth is watching at us, do you hear the endless sound?
To the colours of the childhood, our feet don’t touch the ground
All the earth is watching at us, do you hear the endless sound?
The endless sound…
Track Name: Irish Sea
Oh the Irish Sea
Oh it’s calling me, it’s calling me
Oh the Irish Sea
Oh it’s calling me again
Oh the Irish Sea
Oh it’s calling me, it’s calling me
Oh the Irish Sea
Oh it’s calling me my friend

The wind is blowing in my hair, the waves are splashing wild and fair
That is where I love to be, oh the Irish Sea
All I’ve got and all I need, my backpack with my seven things
Where I’m going to be tomorrow
I don’t really know

Oh the Irish Sea
Oh it’s calling me, it’s calling me
Oh the Irish Sea
Oh it’s calling me again
Oh the Irish Sea
Oh it’s calling me, it’s calling me
Oh the Irish Sea
Oh it’s calling me my friend

I had my time in Liverpool, a jam I had with gypsies two
I would stay with you my friend
But no! The sea is calling

Oh the Irish Sea
Oh it’s calling me, it’s calling me
Oh the Irish Sea
Oh it’s calling me again
Oh the Irish Sea
Oh it’s calling me, it’s calling me
Oh the Irish Sea
Oh it’s calling me my friend
Track Name: Galway River
I travelled to Galway a town in Ireland to follow my gypsy dreams
And I sang my songs, one after the other, was like in a gambling stream
But sudden I heard those tunes behind me, Sudden a glancing voice
I turned around and saw that young man with eyes green like the hills

I’ll give the stone to the Galway River
He’ll pick up from the sea
I’ll give the stone to the Galway River
He’ll pick up from the sea

Well Galway was known as a home of buskers and so were I and he
But of all them singers his voice was the clearest, his smile was turned at me
So I gave him my hand and walked beside him, with us where our guitars
And he gave me a kiss, one after the other, and took a piece of my heart

I’ll give the stone to the Galway River
He’ll pick up from the sea
I’ll give the stone to the Galway River
He’ll pick up from the sea

Oh there I was wrapped up in his arms, in sight if the endless sea
In the moonlight he picked up a stone from the many, the stone he gave to me
The night became colder, the wind blew harder, time was near to go
So he followed me back to the hostel I stayed, I would see him tomorrow

I’ll give the stone to the Galway River
He picked up from the sea
I’ll give the stone to the Galway River
He picked up from the sea

The next day was rising, I travelled townwards with guitar and flutes on my back
And there he stood, the same as before and I as well started to sing
But sudden as I turned towards him, there was no one more to see
And where he has gone I never will know, that young man with eyes of green

I gave the stone to the Galway River
He picked up from the sea
I gave the stone to the Galway River
He picked up from the sea

Oh, I gave the stone to the Galway River
He picked up from the sea
I gave the stone to the Galway River
The River that flows to the sea
Track Name: Werewolf
In the evening sky
It’s sparkling in my eye
My only love is the moon
Oh I loved a man
But he didn’t realize
So he broke me down again

Oh I’m howling to the moon
Will I love again soon?
Oh I’m howling to the moon
No one answers me
No one

Oh he fell in love with me
So I gave the man my key
To open my closed up heart
But he didn’t know
What he would set free
And now he couldn’t handle me

Oh I’m howling to the moon
Will I love again soon?
Oh I’m howling to the moon
No one answers me
No one

It was a new moon
I turned in a werewolf
And I swallowed him with clothes and hair
But with my man
I swallowed the key
It was in his hands
Now I can never love again!

Oh I’m howling to the moon
Will I love again soon?
Oh I’m howling to the moon
No one answers me
No one answers me
O where…
Is my key?
Track Name: Story of a Dream
In a breeze of Irish wind
I found myself in a small town
The same old town that made me sing
About its river flowing down
About its river flowing down

And sudden it reminded me
Of a dream that made me feel
That on my travel I will see
My own true love, the love that’s real
My own true love, the love that’s real

Well that’s where I met you my friend
The fortunes made our ways to cross
Yeah the air was in a magic blend
And since that day my heart is lost
And since that day my heart is lost
Track Name: The Eclipse
Oh we are living in a storm
Cause we all have to be new born
So now we have to know our way
Cause otherwise we’ll be blown away

So now I have to climb a mountain
Oh for to know where I am
So now I have to realize
That when I’m blind I have to open my eyes

I do not know where you will go with all my love in your hands
I will not break, kneel down, or shake
There’s not a tear that you will see

Oh that is the sun eclipse
If love is there but cannot touch our lips
Oh that is when the sun turns black
And I know, I know
I have to react

Oh I know, I’ve seen it come
That something would hide away the sun
So now if we play our game
It will happen again and again the same

Oh that is the sun eclipse
If love is there but cannot touch our lips
So that is when the sun turns black
And I know, I know
I have to react

Oh I’m not playing that game anymore
I will not let my heart freeze and turn in to stone
So now I see, now it’s clear
That I have to go my ways alone
My dear
Track Name: Follow Me
On the other mountain side
Faraway of time
The forests green the waters wild
As giants lived under the sky
Remembering long ago, remembering long ago
Remembering long ago, remembering long ago

Will you be a part of mine?
I remember you clearly
Even though my heart does never tell why
I always loved you dearly
So many times, so many times
Oh so many times, so many times

Follow, follow me
I will take you to the other side
Follow, follow me
I will take you to the sea

Am I your spell or am I your light
Do you really see me?
Love that you will nowhere else find
Then our hearts will be truly
Faraway of time, faraway of time
Oh faraway of time, oh faraway of time

Follow, follow me
I will take you to the other side
Follow, follow me
I will take you to the sea
