Because I Wanted To (1)
One Stitch At A Time (2)
The Dreamer (3)
Lonesome Man (4)

Because I Wanted To

I took a train to the sun
With all my might I tried to stay
But warmth was draining out of me
That’s why I went away

I can’t forget what I saw
But nobody believes me
When I say he started a fight
over nothing and somebody died

my friend he was right
it takes more than 1000 tries
to convince my stubborn mind
I’m alright, I’m alright

But It doesn’t have to make sense
if I don’t want it to
I wrote this song
because I wanted to
Who cares on which side or to what ends
ill cheer you on
I know what I believe in honey,
that sure can’t be wrong
I took a train to the sun

One Stitch At A Time

I told you I’d cope, I’ll manage just fine
Don’t worry, sit tight, I’ll drop you a line
Don’t know where I’m going not sure where I am
But I’ll sew on my shadow one stitch at a time
I’ll sew on my shadow one stitch at a time

I’ll sink my heart to the bottom of the sea
And what remains will be forgotten and that’s fine with me
I’ve been to this place, I’ve walked through these doors
But I’m not the person that I was before
I’m not the person that I was before

And the band sang “who are you”
And I tried to remember
But I couldn’t really say that day
And the band sang “who are you”
And I tried to remember but I couldn’t really say that day
In December

The coins in my pockets picked up from the ground
My feet growing cold as I wonder this town
Don’t know where I’m going not sure where i am
But I’ll sew on my shadow one stitch at a time
I will sew on my shadow one stitch at a time

And the band sang “who are you”
And I tried to remember
But I couldn’t really say that day
And the band sang “who are you”
And I tried to remember but I couldn’t really say that day
In December

The Dreamer

I watch him dance
And recreate his movements in my mind
I watch from behind
The outline of his shadow in the light

With him I’d be a dreamer again
With him i’d steal a dance
Share a glance

See how time seems to be
Moving so effortlessly
I cannot believe
That I’ll wake up alone like I went to sleep

With him id be a dreamer again
With him id steal a dance
Share a glance

AH People narrow the view only fragments of you
Left in my mind
AH
With a little more wine I’ll be fine let you leave as you please, I’ll be fine

Lonesome Man

I was looking for some warmth
Got caught up in your storm
I am silent as the grave
I didn’t need to be saved

Just say my name
Once in a while
Once in a while
You lonesome man

You, dark as the night
Funny shade of grey there in your eyes
When you lie I can see
I can see you lonesome man

And although you are the one
I don’t belong to
I know you well
You lonesome man

What are you looking for
Just tell me what you’re looking for
I felt alone, you needed more
Please stop knocking at my door
AH AH
