"We're All Alright"

 

01 Don’t consider going back

 

Look me in the eyes and tell me that you won’t consider going back

Take a look at what you have done so far, don’t you forget about that

I’ve stood by your side and helped you through this, now please make it count

 

Logic reasoning has always fooled you, you’re not a nobody

Who you think you are will never add up, you are so much more

 

You have not been easy on yourself

Life has not been easy on you

You have seen the lion’s den, with your own eyes

 

02 Icarus

 

Father make us something that will get us out

You got us in now get us out anywhere

 

And so he made himself and his son

A pair of wings out of things he found

 

Now keep in mind don’t you fly too high and not too low

I got us in now i’ll gett us out anywhere

 

So they took off up in too the air

And finally out of there

Now what’s to find beyond the sky

 

Higher :/:

 

Icarus :/:

 

03 Wind sets in

 

What a day to spend outdoors, the sun is here and the wind’s are at war

Though solitude sets me apart, washing over me and my heart

Whisper’s in my mind sweet dear, recall the day we spent out here

The sun was there and you and me, i wonder will this ever be

 

Come away with me, i’ll walk you back

We’ll speak things through, if you like

I’ll come another time, if this ain’t right

 

04 Will I

 

Last few months too much restrained inside

World’s at my feet speak to me

I left town not knowing what i left behind

 

I’ll keep in mind i’ll take one step at a time

Mountains to climb hills to find

Good grief what have i done where can i put my head down

 

Time always seems to go by way too fast or too slow

My heart beats fast my mind is gone

Should i could i will i return your calls

 

Should i could i will i return your calls

Should i could i will i return back home

Should i could i will i show up at your door

 

My heart beats fast my mind is gone

Should i could i will i return back home

 

05 Wintering

 

October has come, it has been a whole year

The leaves yet again are returning to where they came from

I'm not sure if i dare to recall it

But i guess it's time to make up for what is gone

 

Them blackbirds and starlings are all moving south

Taking off for the wintering season of harvest

But for once in my life it does not come to mind

To fly away fly along leaving this northern ground

 

to see the end of this starving it's been a long time

and i'll stay right here just breathing

 

I've been climbing these mountains and the steep hills

for the first time i see it's beauty

 

the bright morning light and the cold autumn wind

is renewing and calming and cold at the same time

there'll be signs in the sky that the spring will arrive

when them blackbirds and starlings are returning from wintering

 

to see the end of this starving it's been a long time

and i'll stay right here just breathing

 

I've been climbing these mountains and the steep hills

for the first time i see it's beauty

 

06 Can i walk on?

 

They got me framed and literally gave me a new middle name

Not one that i would say out loud

There’s no way back from this i figured out by now

What they say is not true nor lies

 

I’m all pinned down and won’t get out of this trench for a while

Not as long as they keep pinning me down

I wish i could shout out ”you’re all wrong”

But what they say is not true nor lies

 

Can i walk on? Can i walk on? Oh no. What have i done?

 

07 Disasters

 

Pardon me the mess i am creating

it’s not like i am doing this on purpose

 

All closed up bottled up inside

the mess will not dissapear all by itself

 

Pardon me i know not what i do

most of the times i hurt you

 

We are all beautiful disasters

all tangled up in each others harmless flaws

 

What is wrong and what is right

With everybody, now let's get it right

No let's not get it right let's get it all wrong

We’re all alright we’re all so strong

We don’t need nobody we can make it on our own

We’re all alright we’re all so strong

 

08 Laying here helps

 

I don’t know where you get your ideas from

What i mean to tell you is that they’re often alright

You see i find myself in a bad place

And i’m turning to you for advice

 

Laying here helps

In your arms on the couch

 

I don’t understand how you can put yourself in

In my shoes and see everything from my point of view

As you might have noticed i’m in a bad place and i’m turning to you for advice

 

Laying here i can’t help but notice

What troubles my mind is not far away

But as long as you’re right beside me

I won’t complain

 

09 Saul

 

What did i miss where did things change

I did not ask for this he said to himself

He had done all that was required by him he believed

 

All of his men had come this far

He would not let them down at this point

Now what would that make of their leader their king

 

He’s on his own from that day on, God removed him from his throne

He refused to step down after all, God had chosen him amongst everyone

 

All of my men they know who i am

They know of my bravery and where i stand

The fight will go on i will not cease to protect what was given to me

 

How could i be so very wrong

About who you were all along

I thought you were just i thought you were right, well you’re not

 

He refused to step down after all, it was him that was chosen by God

He never seemed to get thigs right, getting fooled by his own pride

 

10 Home to you

 

I’m on my way back home to you

I miss your scent i miss your smile

I cannot get home soon enough

Oh darling i miss you so much

 

Although it has not been too long

Since i was there and things went wrong

Theese last few days i’ve felt alone

It’s by you’re side that i belong

 

Please tell me what do you need me to learn

Oh darling i am taking a you turn

I cannot wait to get back home to you

Oh darling i am so in love with you
