Track Name: Coffee And Cigars
It’s better, better to leave anyway
they say life would be better anywhere
else
I am stuffing dreams under your pillow
and you sleep on them at time

Who are you to set any rules
drinking my coffee, smoking my cigars
Who are you to set any rules
drinking my coffee smoking my cigars

He was standing in the kitchen,
he was dreaming, dreaming all alone
Then he was walking, walking running,
walking running, running
closed behind him, closed the front door

Who are you to set any rules
drinking my coffee, smoking my cigars
Who are you to set any rules
drinking my coffee, smoking my cigars
Track Name: Dim Shining Stars
Those dim shining stars
shining above you
watching you sleep
through the night

Those dim shining stars
shining above you
whispering dreams
while you sleep

But when you’re awake
they’ve gone away
floating on the sound
of your melodies

But when you’re awake
they’ve gone away
floating on the sound
of your melodies

Those dim shining stars
shining above you
watching you sleep
through the night

Those dim shining stars
shining above you
whispering dreams
while you sleep

But when you’re awake
they’ve gone away
floating on the sound
of your melodies

But when you’re awake
they’ve gone away
floating on the sound
of your melodies
Track Name: Paint And Colours
I saw some paint and colors
and I thought why not
why not play
why not play with them
And I dipped my hairbrush
in the colors
and I brushed my hair
I brushed my hair

As I walked in the streets
people were looking at me
were looking at me
And then I started running
and people were pointing at me
were pointing at me

So I waited until it was dark
and clouds
clouds were
shadowing the moon
And I crawled and I danced
and I walked this city
walked this city
on my own

Until the morning rain
washed my, my colors away
my colors away
And then my shame was gone
and everything went back to normal again
back to normal
except some stains on my clothes
Track Name: Fall On Me My Rain
Fall on me my rain
and let me dance with you
Like the little flies dance
like they dance on my wall

And fall on me my rain
and let me dance with you
Like the little flies dance
like they dance over the light

Fall on me my rain
and let me burn with you
Like the little flies burn
like they burn over my light

And fall on me my rain
and let me burn with you
Like the little flies burn
like they burn over our light
Track Name: Fools And Clowns
You call yourself a fool
in your 23 years
And you call yourself a fool
in your 23 years
A fool for loving
a fool for caring for me, for me
A fool for all the journeys
we’ve never been to.

And I call myself,
I call myself a clown, a clown
And I call myself,
I call myself a clown
A clown for trying
to make you smile
For trying to bring
Colours in your life

And I call myself
I call myself a clown
And you call yourself
you call yourself a fool, a fool
And I call myself
I call myself a clown, a clown

A game for fools
a game for clowns
And you call yourself
you call yourself a fool, a fool
And I call myself
I call myself a clown

A game for fools
a game for clowns
a game for fools and clowns
And you call yourself
I call myself a fool
in my young 24
Track Name: Drifter
I travelled a long way
to find my way
Built my boat out your dreams
and paddled away

I am now a drifter
and you, you are my wife
I will never marry you
and you, you’ll never ask why
Track Name: Sunny Day
It’s a sunny day
but I’m missing my rain
such a sunny day
but I’m missing you

I don’t care what you think
I don’t care what you do
I don’t care who you are
But I’m missing you
I am missing you

It’s a sunny day
but I’m missing my rain
such a sunny day
but I’m missing you

I don’t care what you think
I don’t care what you do
I don’t care who you are
But I’m missing you
I am missing you
Track Name: Wooden Clock
I wish I had a wooden clock
I wish I had a notebook
I wish I had a wooden clock
I wish I had a pen

Once you saw a grey house
and dreamt you can fly,
once you saw a purple goose
pointing to the sky
And the waterfall is empty
and the waterfall is empty

But still you fall
in the waterfall,
but still you fall
in the waterfall

And it’s too shallow to swim,
it’s too shallow to swim

But still you fall
in the waterfall,
but still you fall
in the waterfall

And it’s too shallow to swim
it’s too shallow to swim

I wish I had a wooden clock
I wish I had, I wish I had, I wish I had
Track Name: No Sense
I think I have too much
too much of everything
too many clothes
too many shoes

But the truth is I’ve only got two pairs
of each
But the truth is I’ve only got two pairs
of each

I want to live out
of bread and water
and walk barefoot
in the sun

And take my shower in the rain
and take my shower in the rainMaybe I’m my father’s shame

Maybe I’m my mother’s worst fear
for not making any sense
in whatsoever sense
for not making any sense
in whatsoever sense

And I want to change
what in my mind seems vain

Maybe I’m my father’s shame
Maybe I’m my mother’s worst fear
for not making any sense
in whatsoever sense
For wanting to change
what in my mind seems vain
