Out of breath in my mind i need a window
Something real, something fresh as air
Left this world on a psycadelic joyride
Only thing is that i got nowhere
Dig down to the center of my universe
Yeah for something i don’t even know, no
You’re the wing, the prayer that i been hoping for
Can you tell me why you hide so low

I am I said inside your head
It’s only you & I, I am your firefly

Without you there’s no me I’m not together
And my stupid little brain’s too slow
So I wait till you come out and play again
Why the hell can’t I take control

I am I said inside your head
It’s only you & I, I am your firefly
I am I said inside your head
It’s only you & I, I am your firefly
I am I said inside your head
If I’m not fed this golden flame will die
And all your words will lie
I am your firefly

Don’t you believe in where you’re going
You act like you’re afraid of knowing
They washed your brain in filthy water
And you drank it down, in the fear you drowned
And it looks like you’re never gonna sleep

Don’t like these caravans you follow
Your own hipocracy you swallow
What kind of god would make you question love?
And your guilt is a sin
They don’t know where you’ve been
And you’re dying all the time

Angels ride on the darkest side of your soul
Angels ride on the darkest side of your soul

Ah you know how they ride

Think your love has turned to hate
Think your love might’ve turned to hate

Solo

Angels ride on the darkest side of your soul
Angels ride on the darkest side of your soul

Gotta lot to learn, gotta lot to live
Gotta lot of time to forgive
But I get jaded, borrowed, faded yeah
Gotta lot to do, gotta lot to be
Not a lot of dreams have come true for me
And the moments come and go like friends
We always drift apart when summer ends
I say there’s nothing wrong
You say there’s something right
It’s hard believing

When I’m tripping down
Got my sky turned ’round
I can almost feel my feet above the ground

Gotta lot of faith even though I’m lost
And It’s only you I can trust
Melancholic eyes give me away
Angelic smiles from you keep me sane
I say there’s something right
You say there’s something strong
I start believing

Then I’m tripping down
Got my sky turned ’round
I can almost feel my feet above the ground

O.K, alright guess I’m looking just a little to hard
But I’m alright now
Just as long as I stay where you are

Break

And I’m tripping down
Got my sky turned ’round
I can almost feel my feet above the ground

I make you crazy
Sometimes I bring you down
That’s how I know our seeds were grown
In the same ground
And I believe I’ve known you for
Least a million days or more
Like the sun that drys my rain

Daisy Jane
You’re the only one who understands
You’re the reason I’m a better man
You’re my life
Daisy Jane

I make you coffee
Sometimes I make you smile
I’d give you all the world
If only I could child
But you’ll still get the best of me
Up & down and inbetween
And you rarely do complain

Daisy Jane
You’re the only one who understands
You’re the reason I’m a better man
You’re my life
Daisy Jane

Solo

Yeah i believe I’ve known you for
Least a million days or more
Like the sun that drys my rain
Daisy Jane
You’re the only one who understands
You’re the reason I’m a better man
You’re my life
Daisy Jane

Well you’ll never be
Anything but a loser
Better take what you get
You know a beggar can’t be a chooser

Somebody told you
Well you got no friends
And nobody’s gonna love you, no way
Must be hard to live
With everybody else above you

Somebody told you
God wouldn’t hold you if you cried
Somebody told you
Somebody lied

Solo

Let ’em crawl through your skin
To the place where lies begin
Tell the world, let them in
To the place where lies begin

Somebody told you god wouldn’t hold you if you cried
Somebody told I wouldn’t love you till you die
Somebody told you things that would
Cut you down to size
Somebody told you
Somebody lied

I thought I knew the answer to the question
It faded then It turned away
The myth of time personified in fragments
That fed into an endless day
Looking for whatever in a neverland
The candlelight was burning low
I held onto the afterglow

In the year of the month of sundays
Could’ve been me on my way
Could’ve been anything at all
In the year of the month of sundays
Could’ve been lost in L.A.
Could’ve been anywhere at all

I wake up in a dreamy daze and wonder
Just how long you’ve been there watching me
And maybe I could slip on by unnoticed
But in the end you know that I would be
Oh more that I could see
And on a big blue mountain
Is where I found my peace
It took me for the longest ride
If freedom can be justified

In the year of the month of sundays
Could’ve been me on my way
Could’ve been anything at all
In the year of the month of sundays
Could’ve been lost in L.A.
Could’ve been anywhere at all

His only time that tells your mind
How long It’s been
Now the feelings coming back again
And I don’t think I’ll be leaving anymore

Solo

In the year of the month of sundays
Could’ve been me on my way
Could’ve been anything at all
In the year of the month of sundays
Could’ve been lost in L.A.
Could’ve been anywhere at all

Underneath the blacklight
Day-glow eyes and busy parasites
Taking their bites
A gathering of drifters
Floating through some kind of neon dream
Apocalyptic subterrene

God has left the building son
Couldn’t take the heat inside us
Don’t you think we’ve having fun
Now that heaven’s gone

Blinded by the churchlight
Stained glass arms casting their stones again
Riddled with sin
Waiting for an ending
That might be nothing but a fairytale
With all the Mary’s you’ve inhaled

God has left the building son
Couldn’t stand the heat inside us
Judgement day has just begun
Now that heaven’s gone
God has left the building son
Left us here to find the answer
Can we save our souls from sin
Now that heaven’s gone

What if we were spiritless
Walking flesh and nothingness
Would it put your mind to rest
Or make you hold your dying breath

Safety is a pair of good shoes
Love is when someone’s got the same blues
Blue nights over earth ain’t no paradise lost
Bonfires lit not to die of frost
Yeah, I can see it all

I’m a moon – moonflower
On moonlit nights i bloom
I’m a moon – moonflower
On moonless nights I’m doomed
I’m a moon – moonflower

Breath is a matter of survival
Till you, wake up a dream –
And have a clue
And your rockets will fly
On the back – side of june
Though I break down, I break through
Soon, yeah very soon

I’m a moon – moonflower
On moonlit nights I bloom
I’m a moon – moonflower
On moonless nights I’m doomed
I’m a moon – moonflower

Rise & fall, breathing small, chasing demons away
I’m a king in my desert world, I’m a snake in the
Shade, I think you know me well and I know you
I do. Sunless star in a falling sky that’s who I’ve
Always been. Well disposed and paralyzed i need
A thicker skin.I’m trying hard to find the words
To say that I won’t be here tomorrow, cause
I just can’t feel today no. Miles wide where
Our souls devide, how did you get so pure.
Angel face you’re in God’s embrace, won’t
You be my cure. I think you know me well and I
Love you but I won’t be here tomorrow, cause
I just can’t feel today and everything I am
Is hollow there’s nothing I can hold onto. I’m
Coming home to be with you when I can shine
Sunless star did you go too far chasing demons away

Oh cool it, I said
Why do you do this to you?
Slow down, take good care
You’re really moving nowhere
Oh you seem, afraid it
Won’t last – that’s why you move so fast
So take my, my advice
Go straight, and settle down
Why not live a natural life?
And be loved for what you are
Leave all pressure, don’t think twice
That would get you far

Uh you can get what you’ve been looking for
You’re on your feet now baby
Uh you can have who you’ve been longing for
But you say if and you mean maybe

Oh cool it, she said
But thank you for your care, now
Please tell me
What went wrong
Can’t take these ups & downs
The days I, hardly make it through
I swear there’s a curse on me & you
It’s bye bye pepsi cola, hello holy wine
Why can’t I live a natural life
And be loved for who I am
Living high, living fine
Must it be on borrowed time?

Borrowed time let us love together
Nothing lasts forever
Memories never end
Smiling eyes, the girl that I remember
Wild & tender, like a flower in the wind
So how can I say goodbye
When the world shines on tomorrow
One more day, just fades away
But the heart you touched will cry tonight
For an angel lost in paradise

In another life you would be a star
Love would take you far
Like a soldier of the light you’d fight on
In another time love would heal the scars
Loose a battle, win the wars
You’re the soldier of the light in my heart

Broken dreams
Never touched your soul
Cause you believed in life
Yeah, you made it your best friend
So, how could faith be a foe
Turn It’s back on destiny
And take a life from me
Lonely days just fade away
Still the heart you touched will cry tonight
For an angel shot down in paradise

In another life you would be a star
Love would take you far
Like a soldier of the light you fight on
In another time love would heal the scars
Loose a battle, win the wars
You’re the soldier of the light in my heart

Purple mountain’s majesty
Yellow sky and blackened sea
Will God shed His grace for you and me

Colors clashing one by one
A bigot’s work is never done
So this is the land of the free

An eye for an eye, we’ll all be blind
If you got a gun, you’re doing fine

Let the people sing, bells of freedom ring
Let the people shout, till there can be no doubt
Let the people sing, bells of freedom ring
Hear the voices roar, we won’t take this anymore

Purple mountain’s majesty
Hungry eyes on broken streets
And ice cracks the sidewalk cabaret

Moral psychos run the show
Tunnel vision starts to grow
And blood spills like water on the stage

Gotta do what we can to right this wrong
For tomorrow’s child we must be strong

Let the people sing, bells of freedom ring
Let the people shout, till there can be no doubt
Let the people sing, bells of freedom ring
Hear the voices roar, we won’t take this anymore
Purple mountain’s majesty

Let the people sing,
Let the people shout
Let the people sing
Hear the voices roar
Let the people sing, bells of freedom ring
Let the people shout
Purple mountain’s majesty
Let the people sing, bells of freedom ring
Let the people shout, till there can be no doubt
Let the people sing, bells of freedom ring
Hear the voices roar, we won’t take this anymore

When I find you, you’ll be waiting
Outside the door of a cheap hotel
There’ll be nothing to come between us
It’ll be our time and we’ll use it well

Tongue-tied I’m a twisted man
Got a lot on my mind, try and understand
Show me what your love can do
Let your fingers do the talking
Let them work for you
Head back baby, close your eyes
When your legs start shaking I’ll be on the rise
So hold tight ’cause we’re moving fast
Keep the rhythm steady til the final blast

When the night is over
Don’t you know it’s hard to say goodbye
Cause my world is getting colder
And it’s hard to live a lie
Hard to say goodbye

When you’re hungry, I will feed you
I’ll fill you up til you hit the floor
When you’re lazy I will revive you
Drive you straight to heaven then I’m out the door

Tongue-tied I’m a twisted man
Got a lot on my mind, try and understand
Hold tight, I’ll be back for you
Didn’t wanna fall in love but I’ll try something new

When the night is over
Don’t you know it’s hard to say goodbye
Cause my world is getting colder
And it’s hard to live a lie
Hard to say goodbye
When the night is over
Don’t you know it’s hard to say goodbye
Cause my world is getting colder
And it’s hard to live a lie
Hard to say goodbye

Love is the Healer
Takes you by the hand
And lets you fly
Whenever you’re ready
Baby I’ll be your man
And never say goodbye

When the night is over
Don’t you know it’s hard to say goodbye
Cause my world is getting colder
And it’s hard to live a lie
When the night is over
Don’t you know it’s hard to say goodbye
Cause my world is getting colder
And it’s hard to live a lie
Hard to say goodbye

Close your eyes
I’ll take you there…

The road is straight and narrow
Her heart’s in overdrive as she flies away
High away from the ground
Her eyes are black and empty
And the nights are all the same
Has she lost control, sells her soul
For a ticket to the candy store
Caught inside the devil’s open door

Highway to the morning sun she rides
White lightning controls her every stride
Highway to the morning sun she rides
All the way to the gates of hell she flies
Another downhill racer

4 AM comes knocking
She’ll find a sleazy boy with a wired eye
To keep her high on his cloud
She’ll spread her wings for savior and feed her tired heart
But it doesn’t last, it goes so fast
And she’s running to the candy store
Caught inside the devil’s revolving door

Highway to the morning sun she rides
White lightning controls her every stride
Highway to the morning sun she rides
All the way to the gates of hell she slides
Another downhill racer
Downhill racer
Downhill racer

Can she turn around and face the light
will she ever make it home tonight

Highway to the morning sun she rides
White lightning controls her every stride
Highway to the morning sun she rides
All the way to the gates of hell she slides
Another downhill racer
Downhill racer
Downhill racer
Downhill racer
Downhill racer

Summer of rain
Out of the clouds you came and
Froze my heart
Running alone
I never thought of changing
But now i can’t forget you
The days are lost without you

I’m dreaming of long summer nights
And i’m searchin’…

As far as the eye can see
Is much too far for you to be
As long as you’re lyin’ here
That’s all i need to know

I was afraid
You were a gamble in my lonely world
(fear was easy)
I know you’ll be here in the end
I’ll keep searchin’…

As far as the eye can see
Is much too far for you to be
As long as you’re lyin’ here
That’s all i need to know

[Solo]

I’m dreaming of long summer nights
I’m searchin’

If your eyes could see
What you mean to me
Oh , when you’re lying here
That’s all i need to know

As far as the eye can see
Is much too far for you to be
As long as you’re lyin’ here
That’s all i need to know

I never wanted to settle down
Just a kid on a highway to nowhere
Wishin’ for my girl to be real
She would satisfy my soul

10 000 lovers in one
10 000 lovers in one

Seems like i’ve known her a thousand
Years
We’we been together all through our
Lives she knows the way love should be
A fire burnin endlessly

10 000 lovers in one
10 000 lovers in one
She’s like
10 000 lovers in one

[Solo]

10 000 lovers in one
10 000 lovers in one

10 000 lovers
10 000 lovers
10 000 lovers in one

Take me there, warm winds blow through the air
And love is all that we know
Harmony, some kind of fantasi that I can never let go

And I don’t know where I am going
Or understand it all
So help me keep my river flowing
When the water falls

And I’ll keep on searching
For my Indian Summer

Firewind, breathe on my heart again
Before the winter takes hold
Always strange how seasons, people change
We try, we live, we grow old

And there’s a beauty that surrounds you
An aura like the sun
So let me wrap my arms around you
Until our dream is done

And I’ll keep on searching
For my Indian Summer
And I’ll keep on searching
For my Indian Summer

Bombs fly through liquid skies of greay
The eagle landed, she’s empty-handed
Why can’t we learn from our mistakes
And love each other
We might discover
Indian Summer

And I’ll keep on searching
In a world going under
For a sign of magic
For my Indian Summer

He downs another shot
It’s the end of the day
He’s never gonna leave
But he doesn’t wanna stay here wanting

Drinking to the past
For which he has no use
Smiling for the camera
But he’s singing the small-town blues

You know so many women so little time
A lonely man’s favorite drunken lie

Why do we have to fall from grace
Holding on to yesterday
When home sweet home is out of place
Lionheart will find his way

Crying for her man
She’s waiting by the phone
But he’s making one last stop
Cause he hates to drink alone in shadows

Trapped inside a dream
A childhood desire
Says he’s off to California
But you know he’s a liar

And now there’s nothing lost, yeah
There’s nothing gained
Morning comes and it’s still the same

Why do we have to fall from grace
Holding on to yesterday
When home sweet home is out of place
Lionheart will find his way
Do we have to fall from grace
Holding on to yesterday
When home sweet home is out of place
Lionheart will find his way

And now there’s nothing lost, yeah
There’s nothing gained
Morning comes and it’s still the same

Do we have to fall from grace
Holding on to yesterday
When home sweet home is out of place
Lionheart will find his way
Do we have to fall from grace
Holding on to yesterday
When home sweet home is out of place
Lionheart will find his way

Long ago we sailed with fury
Across the oceans of the world
The legend lives, it stays forever
We are ready so beware

We are rulers of the ocean
Kings of the seven seas

Strong-we’ll fight for king and country
With power left to spare
The longboat force is back again
To take on all the world

We are rulers of the ocean
Kings of the seven seas

We are immortal
The glory’s in our hands
For blood is our hunger
We know where we stand

One percent of nothing
Is always one percent
Hard to hold renegade
He calls the wind his friend
Taking care of business
According to demand
But if you have to ask him why
You’ll never understand

Full throttle living
And a suicide smile
Push it to the limit
You’re doing it in style

Mother warned me about you
And all those horror stories came true
Mother warned me about you
That’s what makes it cool
Mother warned me
Yeah, she warned me

Hardcore righteous brother
He’s never growing old
You’re calling him black-hearted
But he’s got a heart of gold
The eagle soars alone you know
When it’s time to jam

But if you have to ask him why
You’ll never understand

Full throttle living
And a suicide smile
Push it to the limit
You’re doing it in style

Mother warned me about you
And all those horror stories came true
Mother warned me about you
That’s what makes it cool
Mother warned me
Mother warned me about you
And all those horror stories came true
Mother warned me about you
That’s what makes it cool
Mother warned me

Full throttle living
And a suicide smile
Never gonna give in
You’re doing it in style

Mother warned me about you
All those horror stories came true
Mother warned me about you
That’s what makes it cool
Mother warned me
Mother warned me about you
And all those horror stories came true
Mother warned me about you
That’s what makes it cool
Mother warned me
That’s what makes it cool
Yeah, she warned me
Mother warned me
‘bout you…

Lay your cards on the table
Show the world who you are
Stand for the right
Cause baby you can never lose

In your blood it’s electric
And the power’s in your veins
You’ve got a chance , might as well
Dance you know we’re all the
Same cause…

Everyone’s a star
Shinin’ in the spotlight tonight
Everyone’s a star
Everyone’s alive

Like a wind from the ocean
Feel the lightnin’ in the air
Look in the mirror
Are you the only one there

Go where you want to
Like an eagle flyin’ high
Just take a shot
Take it while it’s hot
All you gotta try cause…

Everyone’s a star
Shinin’ in the spotlight tonight
Everyone’s a star
Everyone’s alive

[Solo]

Everyone’s a star
Shinin’ in the spotlight tonight
Everyone’s a star
Everyone’s alive
