Track Name: Living on the Island
Living on the island.

Living on
Living on the island
Where the sun shines bright
And the people smile
That's what I need
So have some sympathy
For me
Why don't we move
But how we're gonna grow without our roots

I couldn't find a place where I belong
For so long
So I decided to just build a home with you
And I'm happy here
Every time I think of

Living on the island
Where the sun shines bright
And the people smile
That's what I need
So have some sympathy
My dear
Why don't we move
But how we're gonna grow without our roots

uuuuuuuuuuuuuuu
Track Name: Where You Going Tonight
Where You Going Tonight

If I turn my back on their hopes
and wipe the past, clear my thoughts
with an open mind I find myself alive
making waves all by myself
never felt so good to get away

where
where you going tonight
why'd you hurry so much
you've got time

can you hear
when the trees are singing
when the wind is whispering
and your heart
comes alive

I was so afraid to let it go
to let it pass me
in a way I had it all
a future told
rolling down an empty road

when my makeups off
and my lips go soft
I can't hide here anymore
but I'd like to know

where
where you going tonight
why'd you hurry so much
you've got time

can you hear
when the trees are singing
when the wind is whispering
and your heart's comes alive

where
where you going in life
why'd you hurry so much
you've got time, lots of time

If you turn your back on the hopes
and wipe the past, clear your thoughts
with an open mind you'll find yourself alive
Track Name: Little More
Little more:

Little more, always more
people say you're restless,
but you're fine
am i

you think you know
where to go
always on your own and all alone
and so

why do you wake me in the night
your shaking body fights another scary dream
and hides
how soon you'll be so far from home
tough enough to break the holy world

Dreams that make you feel
You are the one to face the truths of all your life
Will soon be gone
I feel really touched to be the one who cleans the house
and do it all
for you to shine

And when you leave
my life will go on
try to keep my mind
away from what is wrong

Will you my boy
find way back home
I can’t go on
knowing that

the world will spin around
and love will always be unfair
as far as who gets what

So we'll pay pay pay pay
pay with our lives
in the end
we’ll know we’ve done it right
that’s why

Dreams that make you feel
You are the one to face the truths of all your life
Will soon be gone
I feel really touched to be the one who cleans the house
and do it all
for you to shine

and when you leave
my life will go on
try to keep my mind
away from what is wrong

will you my boy
find way back home
just can't go on
feeling so alone

-Julia Pietrucha
Track Name: Stand Still
Stand Still:

i see no stars here to admire
do all these lovers wish me death
somewhere there's war, so what do you care
you' said you'd love me to the end
now it's morning, go

go away
go away
go away
go away

who blows the wind to see if i stand still
while drinks brew the bro's, at the bar
the dogs keeps smiling at me howling at me
and in the crypt all the cripples go run around
what can i do
stand still and sing

la la la la la la la la la la la la la la

so where you going with your guns
i don't have guns, still shoot you down
so all the people in the bar
watch for my finger firing at your broken hearts

who blows the wind to see if i stand still
while drinks brew the bro's, at the bar
the dogs keeps smiling at me howling at me
so now the creeps and cripples go running around
what can i do
stand still and kill

babang babang poof poof pooof

kids think it's only fun and now they're all but dead
i think they may have found the bible is a threat
so would you like to tell me the stories of your life
before i turn you into dust

just like the wind i blew you down
and like the wind i take your miserable life with me
don't trust me, don't hit me, don't love me, don't eat me
and when you’re running though the forest you will hear me callin'

la la la la la la la la la la la la la...
Track Name: Growl It
Growl it:

That day when you open up your mind
You'll stroll where the secret demons hide
I know i'll be there in a gorgeous gown
we'll fade and the shades will cover up our stinky parts

those games that we've played will probably laugh at us today
who cares if the only one thats left is here to stay
we dare to unite against the odds, against the scare
aware i am

if we only learned
when we were young
to believe in love, instead of god.
we could all become the ones we'd like
to be

we'll get caught as if we tried to steal
then reformed, united with the rest, the team
fallen, follow the goal
as we hit the wall
we'll crush our heads and spill the bones
spill the bones
spill the bones
Track Name: Tonight
TONIGHT:

Feeling kinda lonely
Light a cigarette
Wishing for a morning
Slowly make my bed

Darkness out the window
All the lights are down
Neighbors living below
do their thing out loud

I'm all alone
Tonight
without
you by my side
I'm kinda starving now
But how do

I get to know you little closer
So we can fly
above the sky
A little while
Tonight
So high

Glass of wine is empty
Shame and fears are gone
Proudly asking shall we
Never be alone

And now we're home
Tonight
We might
Have a good time
Don't wanna sleep
But now
I know how

I get to know you little closer
So we can fly
above the sky
A little while
Tonight
Let's fly

And now we're home
Tonight
We might
Have a good time
Don't wanna sleep
But now I know how

I get to know you little closer
So we can fly
above the sky
A little while
Tonight
Let’s fly
Track Name: Swing Boy
Swing Boy:

Swing boy
you bring me so much joy
(she knows you're always there)
Take care
For every move i make

(take care of what she says)

Baby what you think

(she's here to stay)

Whisper in my ear sounds of your love


Listen to me now

(You're the one she wants)

Oh boy, I think we got it all

When you swing oh my dear
Everybody sees us
when we stand side by side
then everybody sings in town

Uuuua uuuuuauaaa uauauauauaua
Uuuua uuuuuauaaa uauauauauaua

Swing boy, tonight I made my choice

(forever she'll be yours)

Lets dance, be sure to hold my hands

(always hand in hand)

Baby now you know

(she will never go)

Whisper in my ear to lift me up above


Listen to me now

(You're the one she wants)

Oh boy, I think we are in love

When we swing oh my dear
Everybody sees us
when we stand side by side
then everybody sings in town

Uuuua uuuuuauaaa uauauauauaua
Uuuua uuuuuauaaa uauauauauaua

Someday, a question's asked
he'll take me as his wife

We'll remember times
When everybody sings, everybody sing in town

Uuuua uuuuuauaaa uauauauauaua
Uuuua uuuuuauaaa uauauauauaua
Uauauauauauaua lalala oooooooo
uuuuuuuuuuu uouououo uuuuuuuu
Track Name: We Care So Much
We care so much:

We care so much to not touch the ground
We let the flowers bloom in the spring
all of the people they hum in the wind
tearing their clothes
and washing their sins
washing their sins

Now we're all so set up
and barely alive
But still we make an effort to survive
Slowly controlling somehow

Oh, why can't we live and learn from our sins
Why not embrace that your Lord is a thief
With such a beautiful smile underneath
taken you down to beg on your knees,
on your knees and now

Now we're all so set up
And barely alive
But still we make an effort to survive
Slowly controlling somehow

Now we're all so fed up
And barely alive
But still we make an effort to survive
Slowly controlling somehow

Secret inside as we're fading away
Love that we share never gets in our way

Now we're all so set up
And barely alive
but still we make an effort to survive
Slowly controlling somehow

Now we're all so fed up
And barely alive
but still we made an effort to survive
Slowly controlling somehow

Now we're all so fed up
And barely alive
but still we made an effort to survive
Slowly controlling somehow

Slowly controlling somehow
Track Name: In Me
In me:

In the night she's fallin'
wish for someone callin'
now when she's lost

Wake up in the morning
Dreamed of someone warming
the cold in her heart

Somehow
She'll need to bare
Cause now
There's someone else to care

Maybe life inside her
Makes the darkness brighter
Now, dare to see

Lonely teardrops drying
No more time for crying
life want's to be

Somehow
She'll need to bare
Cause now
There's someone else who cares

In the night I'm fallin'
wish for someone callin'
now when I'm lost

Lonely teardrops drying
No more time for crying
life want's to be

Lonely teardrops drying
No more time for crying
now I can see
Track Name: Ship of Fools
Ship of fools:

Met a lady dancing naked on the bow
with demented eyes she starts to scream aloud
“Stuck on this ship pal I see no other place
uuuu, you'd better lock me up or let me off
see the fire in my eye"

So I walk alone down the hall
I see a bad moon rising swinging through the porthole
As I stare all alone at the crowd
Of the fools and the clowns and a dwarfs in a white tights
Is that a mouse or a ghost something's touching my nose - oh


Swing all night, swim all day
Left me without a choice
I'm gonna sing with all my voice

Swing all night, swim all day
Can't someone move
And stop this ship of fools


With an old fat captain spewing overboard
I don't see who else could steer this ship of ghosts
so we sail until we all get sick and drunk
But the moonlight night wakes me up on the portside

So we're here at the edge of the world
when the boat tips down, we'll sink until the end of time
sliding deep all alone in the sea
with the fools and the clowns and the dwarfs
Am i a ghost, let us toast, theres holes in the boat WOWWWWW
swim you dogs!!!


Swing all night, swim all day
Left me without a choice
I'm gonna sing with all my voice

Swing all night, swim all day
Can't someone move
And stop this ship of fools

swim, swim

Swing all night, swim all day
Left me without a choice
I'm gonna sing with all my voice

Swing all night, swim all day
Can't someone move
And stop this ship of fools

Swing all night, swim all day
Left me without a choice
I'm gonna sing with all my voice

Swing all night, swim all day
Can't someone move
And stop this ship of fools
They left without a choice
I'm gonna sing with all my voice

They left without a choice
I'm gonna sing with all my voice

They left without a choice
I'm gonna sing with all my voice

They left without a choice
I'm gonna sing with all my voice
Can't someone move
And stop this ship of fools
Track Name: Julien
Julien:

Drinking whiskey at the hotel bar
We used to visit a lot
see my heart on the bottom of the glass
where you now
Julien

Left to drink without a story
try to see past all your glory
pain and anger chokes me from inside
where do you hide Julien

Once so pure with angel power
Delicate just like a flower
here i come to finish with my pride
Where am I Julien

You'd better lock those dirty wishes in the cell
you ought to burn those memories and underwear
and now the folks will make a party
daughter's coming home
everybody's happy and your freedom's gone
Julien

I'd rather curse my soul
and go to hell with all the other daughters
fighting hard to hold on to my mind
where am I Julien

Once so pure with angel power
Delicate just like a flower
here I came to finish with my pride
here I come oh Julien

then i'll unlock those dirty wishes from their cell
hold them up and aim until they kill
and now the party closes early
folks are running home
my body's dead and now my freedoms gone
Julien

Once so pure with angel power
Delicate just like a flower
here i came to finish with my pride
where was i Julien
Track Name: Midsummer Day's Dream
Midsummer Day's Dream:

I want to be just like you see me

Let my prayer for you die
still it wakes my after dark
ain't that true for you
i could spend my life with you

I would share my home
learn not to be alone
if you cry i'll bake a pie
someday see my belly rise
in the depth of your blue eyes

and if you run i’ll run with you
and if you hide i’ll hide with you
ain't that true for you
if you die i'll die with you

I want to be just like you see me
Track Name: Mom
Mom:

Silence of my house
Memories filled up the sky
Cause I dream of endless days we travelled around

You have your heart split in
You want everything your way
But it's time to say I love you,
but I'll go, and you don't have to know where

I'm thinking about the girl
I'm thinking about the girl,
that she was last night,
her smile lit up the dark

I'm thinking about you mom
I'm thinking about you mom
even though you cry alone
just let me go

You see my face fading
You'll see every disappointment
But you know you'll never show me
what is wrong and that's why I'm singing this song

I'm thinking about the girl
I'm thinking about the girl,
that she was last night,
her smile lit up the dark

I'm thinking about you mom
I'm thinking about you mom
even though you cry alone
just let me go

I'm thinking about the girl
I'm thinking about the girl,
that she was last night,
her smile lit up the dark

I'm thinking about you mom
I'm thinking about you mom,
even though you cry alone-
just let me go, let me go, let me go
Track Name: On My Own
On my own:

Don’t look at me
Like you know who i am
Just because I’m blond and thin
It’s easy to tease
You can try to bring me down
Now if you please
But there ain’t nobody
To take away my peace
Because I got it on my own

My own My own
My own My own My own

So don’t tell me how
I should live
All these posts and hateful words
Have nothing to give
You can hide and say
My life’s been given to me
But there ain’t nobody
To thank for all that I got
because I got it on my own

My own My own
My own my own my own
my own my own my own
my own my own my own

So don’t wake me up
while i dream
in spite of you knockin me down
i’m starting to breathe
you have tried to take
my life away from me
but I won’t conceal
or change the way that I feel because
I got here on my own

My own My own
My own my own my own
my own my own my own
my own my own my own

my own my own my own
my own my own my own
Track Name: Once every Day
Once every day:

Once every day
I’m giving my heart to you
And you smile so true
Floating so high in the night

Once every day
It’s so easy to walk away
But here I choose to stay
My angels still play
When you’re gone

And you - hold on tight
Cause you- make life right

Once every day
I drift away from here
Roll away my fear
Follow what’s right
In my mind

but
Once every day
I make a mistake or two
That never gets past you
Light of my life
Shine more bright


And you
hold on tight
Cause you- make life right

You
hold on tight
Cause you- make life right

You
hold on tight
Cause you- make life right

Once every day
I’m giving my heart to you
And you smile
