Tides Will Turn

Down in the hollow street’s cold, paltry light
a song warmed the air that night.
An old shadow leaned against the moon
playing this strange yet friendly tune.
Then he disappeared in the early dawn,
but somehow the song kept lingering on.    

 Tides will turn someday.
 So don’t let your dreams burn away.
 You can turn a different corner, ride another wave.
 May you learn from mistakes you’ve made.  

I searched the streets but he left without a trace.
Empty handed I walked around for days.
Just a few lines in my mind,
the rest of the song I have to find.
How long it will take, I don’t care,
for I know for sure it’s out there.    

 Tides will turn someday.
 So don’t let your dreams burn away.
 You can turn a different corner, ride another wave.
 May you learn from mistakes you’ve made.     

  I just keep on searchin’ all of the time,
  for I’ve got the reason, but I haven’t got the rhyme.    

 Tides will turn someday.
 So don’t let your dreams burn away.
 You can turn a different corner, ride another wave.
 May you learn from mistakes you’ve made

Castles Of Reality

A magical, timeless universe.
In its lap we could not be hurt.
We built castles in the trees.
Time stood still.
The battlefields burned in the melting sun.
We fought each other with wooden guns.
Proud to play the grown man’s game.
 We all were invincible.
 No one ever died.
 We walked into reality
 with our arms open wide.  

We made our step through the open door.
Grew up fast in the twilight zone.
New built castle in the sky.
Time went by.
Cigarettes, drinks and sleazy bars.
So called love in borrowed cars.
We kept playing the grown man’s game.
 And we were invincible
 with the future on our side.
 We walked into reality
 with our arms open wide.     

  Times gone by.
  Now we’re so much older. So much wiser.
  But the innocence is washed away.
  We keep our dreams and fantasies
  with chains around them.  

We’ve lost much more than we can find.
Our hopes are scattering on the ground.
Ruined castles in the sand.
Who’s to blame?
The battlefields burn in the melting sun.
In everyday fights, life goes on.
Still we play the grown man’s game.
 Once we were invincible,
 but the magic’s gone somehow.
 In the mirror of reality
 we don’t seem transcendent now.

When the evening falls and the day is lost in the ocean
comes the moon so fresh, it makes you eager to fly.
In the dark, I stand alone in the garden.
The silence is growing deep all around.  

Am I all alone or is there somebody out there
watching every move, seeing all the things through my eyes?
Forcing me to use my imagination,
for the real world around us wears a disguise.    

 He takes me on a journey
 across the dark – far away.
 Through the gates of a universe
 we always hope to understand someday.
 We stand yet we stray.  

As the new day dawns the rising sun fills my senses.
Nobody knows how I wish you were here.
I’d take your hand and lead you through my adventure.
But the rising wind is the only sound I can hear.  

Am I all alone or is there somebody out there
watching every move, seeing all the things through my eyes?
Forcing me to use my imagination,
for the real world around us wears a disguise.    

 He takes me on a journey
 across the dark – far away.
 Through the gates of a universe
 we always hope to understand someday.
 We stand yet we stray.

The Ocean

The wind blows on the long shore.
The sand glows in the sun.
My eyes drawn to the ocean.
Now I’m the only one.  

A ship sails into the distance.
I watch her as she fades.
I’m listening in the silence
to the whisper of the waves.    

 The ocean tells a thousand tales,
 but one word lingers on.
 It fills me, running through my veins.
 Freedom.
 Freedom.  

Secrets under the water.
Future in the past.
Ages long forgotten.
This world won’t be the last.  

The night falls on the long shore.
My footprint in the sand.
Soon they will be washed away.
No marks. I understand.    

 The ocean tells a thousand tales,
 but one word lingers on.
 It fills me, running through my veins.
 Freedom.
 Freedom.

Returning To The Garden

Another night.
So silent, so quiet.
It’s a good time to free your mind.
You are at ease
in your garden of peace
and you feel like leaving the ground.  

The journey begins
where most journeys end.
You see now there’s so much to learn.
You have to decide
if you enter the gate,
for it’s the point of no return.    

 A travel into the darkness.
 Every star fades away.
 A rebel ride across the borders.
 Tomorrow’s tunes and songs of yesterday.
 Is there somebody out there?
 Is there any other game to play?
 The fantasy has the power.
 Could it help to understand one day
 that we stand yet we stray?     

  There’s more to see
  than ever meets the eye.
  Behind every new moon
  an old sun is in the sky.

Sight By Sight

I caught her glimpse as I passed by
on a rainy night when thunder lit the sky.
The worn out town’s not a place for me to stay.
I drove on with her vision in my eye.    

 Sight by sight
  So many pictures cover the years.
 Sight by sight
  I will be less if one disappears.
 Sight by sight
  I keep my senses running the wheels.
  The road behind me always feels
  the same.  

How many places along the way
would be worth-while to return to spend some days…
And how many loves were missed as time’s gone by…
Some reflections in the rain of them remain.    

 Sight by sight
  So many pictures cover the years.
 Sight by sight
  I will be less if one disappears.
 Sight by sight
  I keep my senses running the wheels.
  The road behind me always feels
  the same.
