Track Name: shining light
Because you are not here anymore, an empty space surrounds us
where do we go now, where do we go now?

You run on ocean waves, you are beautiful sunlight
what are we looking for, what are we looking for now

we all rise in the shining light
shining light
we all breathe in the shining light
shining light

Rain falls hard in this silent night, the silence is all that we can feel
the night starts like an empty heart ... in an empty heart

You are here by our side, watching the days through your child’s eyes
we watch the line where the sun loves the sea

we all live in the shining light
shining light
we don’t die in the shining light
shining light
Track Name: back to life
It was a rainy day when
I saw a tiny light I was alive
Vibrations made me stronger
and the sound blew away years of pain

I’ve heard bombs and felt history’s fear
The sound was low, the heart was stoned
But now, the voice is getting louder
This beautiful living sound is coming back to life

And I will testify, history is a lie

The day I finally saw the light
the sound of freedom was loud and clear
but fear was still strong in the air
we are infinite rising from the darkness

‘cause I can testify, we are one
Track Name: 15 days
For fifteen days, we go back in time
years have passed our smiles remain the same
Same old jokes same old ocean with us
running in the blue I still laugh with you
We know where to go - we know the right way
we just laugh and jump - walking on the long road to the east

Life love and soul (choir)
for fifteen days
Respect Love and Joy (choir)
for fifteen days
Peace love and Sun (choir)
for fifteen days
Life love and soul (choir)
for fifteen days
fifteen days

Fifteen days we haven’t changed at all
hangin’ out from Irish Pub to music club
fifteen days or two days, my friend forever
running against time, we just smile
We know where to go - we know the right way
we just laugh and jump - walking on the long road to the sun

Life love and soul (choir)
for fifteen days
Respect Love and Joy (choir)
for fifteen days
Peace love and Sun (choir)
for fifteen days
Life love and soul (choir)
for fifteen days
fifteen days
Track Name: time
Time, flowers lost in vain
in the rain, rain falls hard
I’m lost in the rain
Time, light falls on my skin
in the sunset, I’m sun drenched
walking through that door

Take me back, to the south
to the river where our life began
Take me back, to that sinking car
where my life was saved

Time, lights from the rainbow
I walk in the rain, backwards
to lead my mind astray
Miles, maybe millions of miles to run
for you and I chasing a dream
We won’t be afraid to see what we have done

Take me back to the Sinai
the desert where I’ve spoke to the earth
Take me back to that discoteque
to the nightlife on the island that I love
Track Name: queen of the night
Queen of the night
I can see your reflection in the water before me
Queen of the night
your light is coming to my eyes and it shines on and on

Queen of the street
Queen of the world
Queen of the night
With the stars around you I know who you are

Rising queen
wind is your messenger, it brings all that surrounds me
Rising queen
from your black height, with your hypnotic light in my eyes
Rising queen
with an unknown side and your light is running, and floating and flowing, under my eyes

Queen of the street
Queen of the world
Queen of the night
With the stars around you I know who you are
Queen of the street
Queen of the world
Queen of the night
I wanna see the unknown side
I wanna touch the light
I wanna see the unknown side
Track Name: just because
Time can’t change the way I see you
even as you’re getting old and I’m getting old
I’ll always be by your side

An opera melody you love, through the old radio sings
like the gentle rays of spring sunshine
I hear your voice, I see you smile like a beautiful light

Thank you mom, thank you dad for being so amazing
even if sometimes, our voices get loud, unnecessarily loud
Just because of you I am
Just because of you I am
Track Name: in the circle
The sphere turns, the sphere rolls spinning in the emptiness
eyes closed, eyes opened on the endless ocean of time
a child cries a soldier dies into the circle, or out of it.

Drums play, the heart beats wild, on and on
music’s over music lives in the heart of our soul
love to live, live to die, nothing dies in the circle, or out of it

Mother, did you know nothing’s real there is no end
Father, did you know nothing’s real it’s a dream

Tide’s return, passions burn, fire turns into desire
It happens once it happens twice it’s just melting ice
Ice age or cold eyes are seasons in the circle, or out of it
Track Name: it's all so quiet
I’ll go home, go back home
in the sunset, daylight says goodbye
I’m back home, home sweet home
leaves are falling, dancing beauties in the wind
it’s all so quiet, so real
it’s all so silent, in the night

Empty streets, narrow minds
gorgeous fields of gold
Look ahead life won’t die
we are endless bright light

Immagine no heaven
Immagine only sky
No differences, no time

it’s all so quiet, so real
it’s all so silent, in the night

“Light thoughts” come to my head
like butterflies over hurricanes
Look ahead life don’t die
we are endless bright light

Immagine no heaven
Immagine only sky
No differences, no time
Track Name: joy
I’m waving my arms to say goodbye
There is nothing to do, nothing to say
say bye bye, bye bye, my soul won’t die
My love is floating free in the air
just shake your body, free your mind
say bye bye, bye bye, I don’t wanna cry

Joy, pride and Joy - Love and Joy ... joy
walk on flowers, breathe in mountain air
‘cause there’s everything but joy
‘cause there’s everything but joy

You’re waving your arms to say goodbye
nothing’s written, they will never say that
say bye bye, bye bye, your soul won’t die
Light like angels we can fly
no mountain can hide bad eyes
say bye bye, bye bye, flying we’re not gonna cry

Joy ... pride and joy - Love and Joy ... Joy
Walking on grass
breathing in love
running in the wind
trying to be free
free with your joy
pride and joy, walk in flowers
breathe in mountain air
‘cause there’s everything but joy
‘cause there’s everything but joy
Track Name: two wings
She is standing in her living room
silently by the window close to the wall
Just a leaf, floating in the air
floating sensually on autumn wings
She is looking through the window
a dreaming girl too kind to see
In the spring she will always run with me
step by step with no more vipers in the grass

You need what I need - You are who I am
You make me feel real - You make dream here

We were made somewhere far from the dark
I can close my eyes singing and looking at the light
and feel the beautiful things you say to me
while leaves keep falling slowly and silently on the grass
At a train station waiting for a smiling heart
my body is painted by red sunset
Dirt on my skin, dreams in my eyes, floating words in the sky
Day after day, hour after hour, who could write this song?

I need what you need - I am who you are
You make me feel real - you make me sing dear

I’m gonna sing the sky
Track Name: blood and I
It’s the season of emotions
tears are leaving my eyes
leaves and flowers are growing up
bright sun rises in the sky
Little birds are singing
flying from earth to the sky
I know they can’t be mine
I’ll spend my days learning to fly

Take that highway to the sky
Little angel lift my wings to fly
Take a look deep in my heart
and let the piper be your guide in the sky

Sun is rising in the east
it looks like a rider on his horse
the moon is so high in the sky
always bright like a divinity
It’s the season of devotion
to the sad book written with blood
So please stay here by my side
Please don’t leave this heart deep in the sea

Take that highway to the sky
Little angel lift my wings to fly
Take a look deep in my heart
and let the piper be your guide in the sky
