Hope 04:40
On the edge of something bright, something good, something right I see it coming, it's only slight but soon that spark will be a big light All I needed was a single nudge Made me turn my head and I will not soon forget how this joy in my heart crept Ever since, spring in my step I have hope and I won't let it go I won't let it go When the darkness closes in - from without, from within It tries to find me but it won't win It knows not where I go, just where I've been Sticking in a rut with both eyes shut Wrapped up in my pain until you said, "It's not too late" I don't know how far and yes, the trip will be hard But I've got time to spare - you can be sure that I'll get there

Worry 03:59
Hey may i borrow your point of view? Stress just has no hold on you They say I could learn a thing or two I let myself fret 'til I turn blue Precaution once helped me tread water Now i'm just drowning in this pool Help me lose what i ain't using My worry, all my worry I want to lose what i ain't using My worry, all my worry If I stood still something could take root Be done with this pointless pursuit What good is the strain without the fruit? It takes time, put down the tools Funny how it feels much harder to let it go, to keep my cool I own this beast but i can set it free It's not the kind of thing i need I choose the monsters that i feed I miss so much moving at such high speed Made up my mind, i'll take a seat I might even put up my feet, try being happy

We've been friends for a while Walked together for miles I think it's time we cross the line You and me were meant to be And we all need somebody to love We all need somebody to love Hey, you've got nobody I'll be the body who is your someone to love I've seen lots and so have you And we've both got lots left to do My engine's hot, saved you a spot next to me Don't you agree that we all need somebody to love? We all need somebody to love Hey, you've got nobody I'll be the body who is your someone to love Maybe it's not what was in your head Lord knows that it wasn't in mine But that's fine, it's alright

No, I don't have the strength on my own The hits come fast and I'm so slow Knock me down before I gain ground But the stakes are high- I still want to try Just breathe, hope that maybe there's something up your sleeve Hands to hold and words to warm my heart Somewhere I can start, the strength to make it far Remember I'm a part of what's clearly bigger than me Strange, how one thought can cause such change Distant dreams now within range A steady climb, one step at a time A smile to set the tone - I am not alone Just breathe, hope that maybe there's something up your sleeve Hands to hold and words to warm my heart Somewhere I can start, the strength to make it far Remember I'm a part of what's clearly bigger than me AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH Just breathe, know that there will be something up your sleeve Hands to hold and words to warm my heart Somewhere I can start, the strength to make it far Remember I'm a part of what's clearly bigger than me

My skin's never been this thick before The callous covers every pore Nothing cuts me to the core, it's bleak here I am getting hard to recognize This is more than simply shy And it's no temporary guise - it's deeper Break me open wide I thought I got away And then I see that face again The fires of hell lick me from within The sound of teeth on rusty tin, getting louder I was a captive to your touch The need to forgive you, not so much I can still taste your sucker punch, it's so sour It broke me open wide I thought I got away Ran as fast as I could I went farther than I thought I should Across oceans, through valleys, up mountains, down alleys to think that I'm safe and sound But when I turn around you stare back at me I thought I got away

Move On 03:54
Get over all the things that I will never do Open up this window I've been looking through There will never be a better day to start anew I'm taking a good look at all the lines I've drawn I'm gonna cross a few I've had my whole life long I'm gonna love it, I don't need my game face on Because I can see the flower among the weeds The fruit hanging from that tree A reason to go there To move on, move on Move on, move on I've got years left They might be my best Who ever said that it was time to settle down? I wasn't given legs so I could sit around I'm gonna make some music and I'll make it loud I'm not too cool, I'm not too proud to have some fun It's true that not every day will be blue skies and sun But when I stumble I'll get up, not come undone Because I believe that good things can be messy But it is certainly no reason to be scared To move on, move on Move on, move on I've got years left They might be my best

Es gibt Wege, die niemand kennt Es gibt Ängste, vor denen man rennt Aber mir ist nie etwas begegnet, das uns trennt Egal wohin es geht, egal durch welche Tür Ich schaue auf zu dir und dann bin ich bereit dafür Alles was mich hält, jedes Hindernis scheint nicht mehr so groß und schwer, wenn du neben mir bist Es gibt Tage, die kein Mensch versteht Manche Momente, wenn sich alles dreht Ich rufe, du stehst mir zur Seite und kommst nie zu spät Mancher Tag ist ein echter Albtraum Manchmal stecke ich zwischen Borke und Baum Mit dir ist nicht nur eitel Sonnenschein Aber zu zweit ist so viel schöner als ganz allein Egal wohin es geht, egal durch welche Tür Ich schaue auf zu dir und dann bin ich bereit dafür Egal wohin es geht, egal durch welche Tür Ich schaue auf zu dir und dann bin ich bereit dafür

Darlin' 03:46
There's a time to speak, to make a move Hope it's not too late, that it's no use Now I know and I mean it and I am gonna try til I get it right Darlin' it's true Darlin' it's you Darlin' it's true Darlin' I love you Words get in the way, I get confused But I'm unclear on everything except you I'm done with “easy does it” Oh honey before I lose my mind just hold me tight Darlin' it's true Darlin' it's you Darlin' it's true Darlin' I love you It's so simple - why'd it take me this long to sing one little silly song? Please be gentle, won't you sing along? Ooooooh oh oh oh Oh yeah oooh Darlin' it's true Darlin' it's you Darlin' it's true Darlin' I love you

In Every Way 04:08
It's what happens when we let things slip We're not angry, we're losing our grip Where we went wrong is anyone's guess Regardless I wish you the best in every way In every way I never meant to make you cry It's time we say goodbye Your face has begun to fade I think of you less and less with each day We'll keep it so cool and classy I hope that you end up happy in every way In every way I never meant to make you cry It's time we say goodbye Goodbye goodbye goodbye goodbye In every way, in every way I never meant to make you cry It's time we say goodbye

With bad words and sad games you rewrote history Little lies all in a row I know it's not right but I've been hoping you'll choke on the seeds that you sow Swear I am not usually so flled up with spite Takes all that I got to resist the urge to bite You changed your mind at the turn of a hat And after the damage is done I have to say it's so good to know that I wasn't the only one It's not that I'm clueless or that I stood out from the crowd Was just one of the few who didn't say that you weren't allowed But if I forgave you why do I still get this upset? I don't want to hate you but I am dying to forget Don't have it down but I'm getting better And I will work hard 'til I do bring mercy and a clear mind together Then I will be free of you
11.
Alive 03:07
What you get is what you see Something's had a hold of me All these shadows in my eyes make me forget what's inside that I'm alive, I'm alive More than ever, I'm angry and I'd have every right to be but fury won't be where I quit Help me forgive what I can't forget I'm alive, I'm alive I do always have a choice and I will choose to lift my voice Today brought me to my knees but it won't get the best of me I'm alive, I'm alive

about

In March 2011 I went up to Timetools Studios in Hannover to record three new songs. I'd never met Christian Decker or Nils Hoffman before and had only played a few concerts with Christoph Rosenplänter. But after recording a few songs, it was clear to me that I'd found my "dream team".... and I didn't really want to stop working. So we kept going and after some careful planning and nine days in the studio, we had recorded a full album. We had fun making this record and you can hear it. I hope you like it too.
