Track Name: You Say
You say

It is the same, it’s nothing new
you say: don’t be so scared it’s love
it’s a flame and I spark, I do
but though I always screw up to

Hold me back
from leaving you
from leaving you

Choose to stay but wanna break free
you say: why can’t you love me the ordinary way
and still you lock the door with your key

To hold me back
from leaving you
from leaving you

Fill me out and make me bleed
you say: don’t you dare to beg or to shout
’cause you don’t have any guns to lead

To hold me back
from leaving you
from leaving you

Hold me back
from leaving you
from leaving you

Choose to stay but wanna break free
you say: why can’t you love me the ordinary way
Track Name: Run
Run

You are in my mind all day
you’re in my dreams all night long
oh boy
you are in my mind all day
you’re in my dreams all night long
oh boy

I don’t even know
how to say hi to you anymore
and I would love to deny
that I gotta back off and let you go

But I wanna run run run
from the whole I feel
I just wanna run run run
from the places we used to be so real

You are in my mind all day
you’re in my dreams all night long
oh boy
you are in my mind all day
you’re in my dreams all night long
oh boy

They say, girl, either you fight or you learn
that there is a price to pay
when you lose a friend
so feel how you burn
feel how you burn

you are in my mind all day
you’re in my dreams all night long
you are in my mind all day
you’re in my dreams all night long
all day, all day, all day, all day
all day, all day, all day, all day

But I wanna run run run
from the whole I feel
I just wanna run run run
from the places we used to be so real

I wanna run run run
from the whole I feel
I just wanna run run run
from the places we used to be so real

You are in my mind all day
you’re in my dreams all night long
oh boy
You are in my mind all day
You’re in my dreams all night long
Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, oh boy
Track Name: A Grownup
A Grownup

My mom kicked me out tonight
she said: you’re wrong and I’m right
and as always when we fight
you’re to blame for all the trouble in my life

Don’t return, no, never stop if you’re not even a grownup
don’t return, child, never stop if you’re not even a grownup
Mom I guess I’ll never come back
I’ll never come back

My dad taught me how to wait
he said: this evening I’m gonna show you how to skate
but instead he came home late, drunk like a sailor at sea
he didn’t remember the little me

Don’t return, no, never stop if you don’t wanna see how you’ve grown up
don’t return, child, never stop if you don’t wanna see how you’ve grown up
Dad I guess I’ll never come back
I’ll never come back

My mom’s worried everyday
she said you have one life and I’ll pray for you
now walk far, walk away my girl
the world is huge and you need to learn a lot

My dad has an old mans face
he said, I’m proud of you in any case
and if you suffer I would rather be in your place
I’ll be on your side ’cause you’re my child forevermore

Don’t you quit, no, keep in mind that you’re flawed like your Mom is
don’t you quit, child, keep in mind that you’re flawed like your Dad is
Mom and Dad I’ll never forget
I’ll never forget
Track Name: The Kids Of The Sun
The Kids Of The Sun

We hope so badly that something’s gonna happen
and there’s no need to go our own ways
we hope so badly that something’s gonna happen
and there’s no need to go

We live like trees that rise into the sky
and no one else is so free like we are
because we have this feeling
our souls have known each other for ages before we even met

Can you feel the flow
it’s in our bones
it’s in our bones

Now look at us we’re the kids of the sun
our home’s on fire so we head for your town
and come for you and your friends
go to the beach and hold hands
like the world was just born for us

We hope so badly that someone’s gonna dare
to say that what we have is rare
we hope so badly that someone’s gonna say
that together we should stay

We all made a vow to follow only ways
that make our innersun shine the brightest
and if times are hard then keep in mind
the white light in your eyes is the sign of the sun

Can you feel the flow
it’s in our bones
it’s in our bones

Now look at us we’re the kids of the sun
our home’s on fire so we head for your town
and come for you and your friends
go to the beach and hold hands
like the world was just born for us

We’ll make sure we’re not a thorn in its skin
we’ll make sure we’re not a thorn in its skin
in that paradise we live in
in that paradise we live in
in that paradise we live in
in that paradise we live in

Now look at us we’re the kids of the sun
our home’s on fire so we head for your town
and comfort you and your friends
to love true and live like driftwood in the sea
like driftwood in the sea
Track Name: The Kids Of The Sun Part II
The Kids Of The Sun Part II

Goin’ out backpackin’ is maybe the best thing that’s ever happened to me. Once you’re out there there’s really no going back, you just get sucked into it and addicted to it. I don’t know what it is, I guess it’s just, it’s freedom at its finest. I think a lot of people just don’t realize what they’re in for until they actually just get out and do it. And it’s one of those things that you really just can not exactly describe, uhm it’s something you have to experience first hand in order to understand.
It makes you realize that most of the people aren’t like you, you know, but they’re out there. Travelling forces you to experience this. Bein’ a kid of the sun, well you know island hopping what’s not to love, it’s escapism from responsibility, it’s a break, all you have to do is float around, there’s no responsibilities or anything to worry about, no obligations, everyday is just your own whim of where you wanna go and when and how. Hitchhiking through the mountains of malaysa or fly off to the middle east the next day, havin’ that freedom is heaven, it’s perfection.

You are scared but you don’t have to be
home is what you feel when you are surfing on the sea
You can change to someone
you can change to someone
you can change to someone new

Backpackin’ is a transposition into the life of driftwood, you know you’re stayin’ in hostels and shitty places and beautiful beaches, it’s cheap you know, wherever you wanna go you can always make it work, but, you know, nothing like that really gets the point across, it’s something I wish everyone would just take the plunge and go out and do, it’s, you know, whether it’s a matter of money or, or the time you know, or things are holding you back you know, relationships, school, work, whatever, I beg young people to travel, it’s something you just have to get of your ass and do, and you will never regret it, I can’t tell people that enough, like, you won’t regret it.

You are scared but you don’t have to be
home is when you find yourself in places that you see
You can change to someone
you can change to someone
you can change to someone new
Track Name: Since Jack 'n' Rose
Since Jack’n’Rose

We both thought that separation would be right
and now we ended up in our own beds
missing each other every night
havin’ a fight with the loneliness growing inside
and the love we’re trying to hide

Honey you and me
we’re in love like no one else has ever been
since Jack and Rose kissed on the screen

You didn’t know if you were ready for me to stay
I guess I wasn’t alone feeling time slowing down
and heavens folk just watchin’ us
when you came running to my place to say
hey, please don’t go away
please don’t away

Honey you and me
we’re in love like no one else has ever been
since Jack and Rose kissed on the screen
since Jack and Rose kissed on the screen

Honey you and me
we’re in love like no one else has ever been
since Jack and Rose kissed on the
honey you and me
we’re in love like no one else has ever been
since Jack and Rose kissed on the screen
since Jack and Rose kissed on the screen
Track Name: Low Tide
Low Tide

Now that music’s everything you know
and you’re waiting for power to grow
you have that track stuck in your head
low tide in front and empty sand in the back

You hope that high tide is gonna come soon and
bring a new spirit, a new life and a new tune
you were pretty much far out there
breathing the cold air of a foreign land

You’re a rock in the sea
floating to the top
howling like wolf
like a wolf

You are going back to the start
you let the waves wash away all the scars
and all the letters written in your soul
that soul you used to know
you give it all away, away, away

You’re a rock in the sea
floating to the top
howling like wolf
like a wolf

You’re a rock in the sea
floating to the top
howling like wolf
like a wolf

Spreading so much love
spreading so much love
love, love ,love, love
love, love ,love, love
Track Name: My Dear
My Dear

My dear you have to learn
that we all are sitting in the same boat
my dear you have to know
that we all are feeling so alone like you
we could pack our things and go
we could pack our things and go
right know

Oooohh...

My dear you have to see
that you can still become what you want be
and my dear you have to go
when you don’t feel like it’s a place to grow
you can turn your back and go
you can turn your back and go
right now

Oooohh...

My dear you have to know
that we all don’t have anything under control
my dear I need to say
that we all think that you’re a runaway
my dear I need to say
that we all think that you’re a runaway
my dear I need to say
that we all think that you’re a runaway
you’re afraid you wave and go
you’re afraid you wave and go
right know

Ooohh..
