Track Name: Care
Care

I went for a walk last night
I couldn't sleep, you were on my mind
Then the dark sky slowly turned blue
The sun caressed my face like you
The river played a tune to my ears
But they couldn't dry or wash my tears

The blue sky don't care about my life
The burning sun don't care about my life
The cold river don't care about my life
It's only you who cares about my life

I went to the woods the other day
Beautiful creatures crossed my way
Blue, yellow, red flowers, green trees
Brown, black and white birds, cows, horses
Green fields and hills, blue sea around me
But without you they can't help me

Mother Earth don't care about my life
Providence don't care about my life
The Universe don't care about my life
It's only you who cares about my life

And me who cares about your life
And they who care about our lives
Only ourselves who care each others lives
Only ourselves who care each others lives


February 2012
Track Name: I'll Wait for You
I'll Wait for You

When I first saw those big brown eyes on the train station on that lovely day
My heart did tell me what I should do
When I asked for your hand sitting on a blanket on that green hill
Your heart did tell you what to do

And now I'm sitting here holding nobody in my arms
And you're so far away after we tried so many times
But please say yes and I'll know what to do
Please say you come to me and I'll wait for you

When I first saw this country girl with a kerchief on her head, pretty smile on her face
I knew she was the girl I was looking for
When you decided to leave that other life for a vagabond guy from the big town
Well, I believed that was me you were looking for

And now you drift away and back from and to my arms
We're both so tired now and I asked you too many times
Please say yes and I'll know what to do
Please say you'll live with me and I'll wait for you

When I decided to take you with me on my long and exhausting way
I admit I played kind of a gambling game
I know I've never been able to sacrifice enough for you as you've done for me
And I'm afraid I'll remain the same

And now I'm sitting here holding nobody in my arms
I can only blame myself, I might have caused you too much harms
But please say yes and I'll know what to do
Please say you come with me and I'll wait for you
But please say yes and I'll know what to do
Please say it from your heart and I'll wait for you
Track Name: The Days
The Days

I had pictures on my mind
I've seen you growing up without me on your side
How could I leave you all alone?
I know too well how it feels to be on your own

I've been running against time
Dreaming of the days when our life will be fine
And though there are races that can't be won
It doesn't hurt so much if you don't have to be alone

[Chorus:]
I know I'll never get back the days
The days I could have spent with you in so many pleasant ways
But if you walked right through my door
I would not leave you anymore

I've got many pictures of you
Two candles, three candles, I could never be there for you
And when at last I got closer to your heart
It didn't take too long and again we had to part

But don't worry, don't cry my boy
Daddy's not forsaken you, you are his greatest joy
Where are those little hands? Where are those big talking eyes?
One day you'll sit here with me watching the sunrise

[Chorus]

I had pictures on my mind
Track Name: Into My Arms
Into My Arms

I can't hear you
I can't see you
I can't feel you
I can't hold you in my arms
And I know the reason why
I miss you so much I could cry

I can't teach you
I can't play with you
I can't carry you
I can't show you the horse on the field
And the seagulls on the shore
And the ship in the harbor

[Chorus:]
'Cause I walked out of your life
Daddy's gone to find a better ground for his sprouts
I wonder when the night comes that the clouds don't hide the stars
I wonder when you run into my arms

I can't walk with you
I can't run with you
I can't swim with you
I can't speak with the birds alone
I can't watch the bats at night
I can't race with the shopping cart

I can't sing with you
I can't dance with you
I can't laugh with you
I can't hush you when you cry
I can't help you when you're ill
I can't take you to the hill

[Chorus]

I can't cook for you
I can't read for you
I can't learn from you
I can't tell you how smart you are
How proud I am of you
How much I love you

I can't praise you
I can't scold you
I can't warm you
I can't put you to sleep at night
I can't show you the moon
I can't tell you 'see you soon'

[Chorus]
Track Name: Look at the Sky
Look at the Sky

Look at the sky when it’s so clear and there’s no cloud
All kind of interesting things flying around
Birds and planes, balloons and leaves, plastic bags, dust and flies
When you’re relaxed, look at the sky

Look at the sky on a cold and rainy day
When you see nothing there and everything is so grey
You wouldn’t step outside you’d just lie and sleep or cry
When you are sad, look at the sky

High above the sky among the clouds two lonely birds fly
They've been together but lost each other, that’s the reason why they cry
If you wonder where I am and want to fly with me again, look at the sky

Look at the sky when it’s dark and full of stars
They shine like Christmas lights in both of our hearts
Look at the Moon, pull a thread and us it will tie
When you’re lonely, look at the sky

Look at the sky when it’s raging above you dear
Wind roars, lightnings struck, thunders blow your ears
When the world is so angry and you too but you don’t know why
When you are scared look at the sky

High above the sky below the stars two lonely birds fly
They've been together but lost each other, that’s the reason why they cry
If you wonder where I am and want to fly with me again, look at the sky
Track Name: Life Where There's No Trouble
Life Where There's No Trouble

I came to you that night
I told you come with me and
Stop waiting for the life where there's no trouble

I had no money but heart
You told me that you love me and
You waited for a guy like me, no other

[Chorus:]
I want to take you with me
And share with you the greatest joys of life
I wanna be your prince, not a midnight lover
Hold my hand and don't sit here
Stand up, let's find our luck and
Stop waiting for the life where there's no trouble

The days slowly passed by
I brought you to my world and
You saw that our life is not without trouble

But we didn't say goodbye
We tried it over and over again
Moving from one place to another

[Chorus]

The years slowly passed by
Through times of joy and suffer
You became a tired and worried mother

I want to stay on your side
I want to make you laugh again
But I can't find no life where there's no trouble

[Chorus]
Track Name: I Don't Have Much To Say
I Don't Have Much To Say

I don't have much to say
And I hate to see you going away
The car is leaving, I stand there recalling
What you promised me on that day

I don't have much to say
And the time is tickin' away
My hopes get smaller and we're getting older
You're further from me every day

But it's time for you and me to leave our hatred all behind
It's time to throw them away
I don't have much to say

I don't have much to say
Well, I might have led you astray
Offered you a life that never was yours
From your home I took you away

I don't have much to say
And I didn't beg you to stay
I never really took care of your feelings
I just thought our love was the key

But it's time for you and me to leave our fears all behind
It's time to hide them away
I don't have much to say

I don't have much to say
And the days without you are gray
The sun's going down and I'm calling you home
As I'm walking alone at the bay

And it's time for you and me to leave our doubts all behind
It's time to hold each other's hand and never say goodbye
It's time to leave the tears, the fears, the debates from yesterday
It's time to find our way
I don't have much to say
