Track Name: Haven't You Told Me
Haven't you told me,
told me once that nothing matters?

I remember you saying
"We are all one,"
Made of light
Or whatever you'd like to call it

Light sounds good to me
Oh I hope you're right

I'd like to be a ray of light
Track Name: Liebe #1
Liebe
Liebe kann vieles
Liebe tut weh
Doch Liebe
Liebe erhellt jede Nacht

Wenn ich alleine bin
Ich meine ganz alleine
Stell ich mir vor du bist da

Und dann weiß ich es kommt die Zeit
In der diese Zeit
Sinn macht
Track Name: I Am Waiting For My Laundry In The Sun, And I Have Lost You
It seems like I'm getting stranger every day
How easily the pleasant illusion of a clear view turns into nothing
Nothing but clouds of fog

I guess I shouldn't care so much
I guess I shouldn't think so much
Well, that's what I've been trying
But I'm getting sick of trying

It was just so nice, just too nice to let go

I've been running into this like a child
Like a little girl
I have given up my strength
and chose to be weak
Only for the illusion of you

I am just a little girl
Making up my own world
Until you refuse to play your role
I should have know this would happen

I am just a little girl
Making up my own world
Until you refuse to play your role
And leave me here in cold reality

It was just so nice, just too nice to let go
It was just so nice, just too nice to let go
Track Name: Deeper (solo)
Every song has a you
And every you has a face
We go thousands of years back
And I still know yours

Life has led me across your path
and yours, and yours
And we will find something better
Every time we look deeper

I feel, things make sense in every struggle
I feel things make sense

I am all by myself and I am happy to be
I am fighting and letting go
and facing what has been in front of my eyes
for years and years
But it is so hard to see what’s most important

I feel, things make sense in every struggle
I feel things make sense

Eyes are open
Mind is open
Heart is open
Life is open

Every moment is precious
All my fear and doubt
And all the answers
Could never be born without questions

I have chosen to fill my days with meaning
So I keep climbing
Track Name: New Orleans
Will you wake me up with a smile like this
Over and over again
I hate to be so directly
Bluntly happy

It makes me feel there's something wrong

But then again
It feels so good ...
