Track Name: Stranded
I took my time
I saw the space between us, you were on the run
The bus eight minutes late, I wish I made you laugh
You start to shiver, may I hug you, baby?

This life´s so short
They say tomorrow, but tomorrow never knows
I fill my mind of lies, I´m trying to keep it on
But now these lies turn into songs, my lady

CHORUS:
Looking through the rainbow for a shelter in the sky
Stranded on the streets, yeah
Take me to the place where darkness shines and low is high
Save me from my sin

Down in the club
My time is running out, they say I´m not that shy
My heart is burning now, my friends are getting high
´cause I just try to hold you tight, oh baby

I´ve faced it all
I saw the lightning but I had never been shocked
I´ll keep on lying, writing and singing more songs
Until this haze turns into day light, maybe

REPEAT CHORUS

I went up to make things better
You fell down where load is heavier
I won´t let you down
´cause you´re shining through the clouds

I won´t get away, we´ll get that train together
Now I´m running fast, not fast enough to get her
I won´t let you down
´cause you´re shining through the crowd

I won´t get away, we´ll get that train together
We will let in light and banish shade forever
I won´t let you down
´cause you´re shining through the clouds

REPEAT CHORUS
Track Name: The Shepherd's Song
It´s a long way, run!
You can hide, you can try,
You can get what you want
But it´s all for fun

You can lie to yourself,
You can still chase the train
But you missed it, man

Now remember the days
When you both were the same
And you felt as one, boy

All the things that she said,
All the games that you played
They´ve all gone away, I know
The shepherd´s song, the sheep has gone

CHORUS:
Fly high to the moon
Stars will shine for you
When you´re feeling blue
Sing with all your might:
“It´s Alright
It´s Alright”

It´s the wrong way round
When you cry, when you lie,
When you give up the fight
And you´re going down

When the cold rules the night
And your demons inside
Blow away your rounds

You were meant to be free
But you cut off your wings
And you´re on your own now

It´s so easy to breathe
Not as hard as it seems
So let´s run away, alone
The shepherd´s song, the sheep is gone

REPEAT CHORUS

Fly high to the moon (It´s alright, it´s alright)
Stars will shine for you (It´s alright, it´s alright)
Everything´s alright (it´s alright, it´s alright)

Sing with all your might (it´s alright, it´s alright)
Track Name: Hey Girl
Have you followed the words of the traitors?
Have you noticed the smell of your failures?
Way too young to forget that your soul was on sale
Never mind,babe,we won't let them win

Feel the strenght of the words on a paper
Feel it under the gun of a stranger
They will come to you saying: “that´s a fuckin´ face!”
Don't give up or your sons will inherit your debt

CHORUS:
Hey, girl, come and tell me what's your dream
Fame, calls, I'll put the whole world at your feet
Hey, girl, come and tell me what's your dream
Fame, calls, I'll make you shine on every screen

Should have noticed their treacherous faces
Minstrels lie in their frugal chases
Once they promise the moon and the stars that shine
It's too late, babe, you're digging your grave tonight

CHORUS:
Hey, girl, come and tell me what's your dream
Fame, calls, I'll put the whole world at your feet
Hey, girl, come and tell me what's your dream
Fame, calls, I'll make you shine on every screen

Money makers, will you take us higher?
Track Name: Better Day To Come
I look into your eyes and I imagine
multicolored countrysides

I dive into your smile and I can travel
everywhere in space and time

But you looked to the other side
and you smiled to wave goodbye

CHORUS:
She knows that I´m not here to stay
She couldn´t control me, no
Asking someone else I found that love was spinnin´round,
round and round
Now I´m waiting for a better day to come

Uncovering your mind, a maze of wonders
waits for me to slip inside

I tried to hold you tight, now I look back
I didn´t need a place to hide

But you looked to the other side
and just smiled to wave goodbye

And I tell you, yes, I´m telling you
that this dream´s falling apart
I won´t let you, I´m not letting you
Through this worn out-broken heart

I lost my mind
You´re out of time

CHORUS:
She knows that I´m not here to stay
She could´t control me, no
Asking someone else I found that love was spinnin´round,
round and round
Now I´m waiting for a better day to come

REPEAT CHORUS x2

Yes, I´m waiting for a better day to come
Yes, I´m waiting for a better day to come
