Track Name: Footprints
FOOTPRINTS

I would start a fight for you
Knowing I would lose
Begging for your mouth to heal my every bruise

I would learn to swim for you
Wouldn’t fear to dive
Drinking salt to stay afloat, to quench my thirst

Just to comfort your eyes
It could comfort my fears

Hole my chest
Reach my heart and grab it
To slow down its fast beating
Give my arms a shape to embrace
For them not to shake, not anymore

I would lose my weight for you
Run until it aches
I would change my body just to win your waist

I would sculpt a reef for you
Using my bare hands
Like a sacred icon blessed by foam and sand

All the poems from your mouth
Sit and rest in my ears

Hole my chest
Reach my heart and grab it
To slow down its fast beating
Give my arms a shape to embrace
For them not to shake, not anymore

And I’m still me
In the mirror
In the puddles
In your eyes
Leaving footprints
On the sand of your voice
Still me walking, back and forward
Still me waiting endlessly
For your smiling rain to come down
Track Name: World Outside
WORLD OUTSIDE

Lock the world outside
Cut it off this picture
Smoke it off this night
Sing it off this song
Let’s stay peaceful here
Let’s sit on the rocks
In front of a black sea
We lock the world outside
Leave it all outside

Leave hell and heaven outside
If you don’t want to
Believe in sins and redemption
You don’t have to
The past don’t have to be the place
You belong to
Fill up your lungs and your glass
And own this moment

So I say
Lock the world outside
Cut it off this picture
Leave it all outside this moment
Believe in what you feel right now
You can believe in every god, in every truth, in every creed or science
Just let it out for now
Believe in your voice raised up high tonight

Leave hell and heaven outside
If you don’t want to
Believe in sins and redemption
You don’t have to
The past don’t have to be the place
You belong to
Fill up your glass and your lungs
And own this moment

Sing this song and lock the world out
Just raise your voice and shut the world up
Just make some noise and cut the world off
Cut it off, cut it off, cut it off, cut it off
Track Name: Acrobats
ACROBATS

Acrobats on our own wire we proceed
Blinded by our own balance we can't see
The distance between our different heights

We can stare at just one point in front of us
Just a net to decide if it's risk or jump
Will someone catch us?

Here you pray for a sign to shake your path
Here I hope we fall down on the same net
Dissolving the risk we fear in an elastic silent scream
To show that we're not meant to walk on air

Acrobats on our own wire we can't live
Hiding from the courage to look below
We need to slide and just dive

Here you pray for a sign to shake your path
Here I hope we fall down on the same net
Dissolving the risk we fear in an elastic silent scream

We're all part of the same mad circus
Clowns with painted tears on our faces
Wizards working on our illusions
Tamers fighting to reign upon our own nature

Acrobats on our own wire we proceed
We all hope for a sign to shake our path
Losing balance yes, we fall, we fall down, we fall free
We're just not meant to walk on air
Track Name: Light And Water
LIGHT AND WATER

Is it raining sunrays
Or are raindrops shining?
My mood changes as the Dublin’s sky
Constantly turning from grey to white
Underneath a deep blue either dark or light

And I’m still beautiful
Even when I’m paranoid
Cause I’m made of light and water inside
And I’m still standing
Even when my head turns
Cause it’s falling light and water outside

Looking at the railways
Waiting for a free ride
My mind’s changing like this Irish fall
Constantly walking on fields of wind
Looking for the shade of green that matches mine

And I’m still beautiful
Even when I’m paranoid
Cause I’m made of light and water inside
And I’m still standing
Even when my legs hurt
Cause it’s full of light and water outside

I’m one with the weather inside
I’m one with the weather outside
I’m one with the world for good
I’m one with the world for bad

And I’m still beautiful
Even when I’m paranoid
Cause I’m made of light and water inside
And I’m still standing
Even when my chest hurts
Cause it’s full of light and water outside

Is it raining sunrays
Or are raindrops shining?
Cause it’s full of light and water everywhere
Track Name: Green Light
GREEN LIGHT

Stroboscopic lights
Flashing in my eyes
They should blind me they should stone me
But it’s all so clear

Music’s like the wind
Bodies are like flames
Burning bright and trembling to the blowing of the beat

Shake your hands and melt the ice
Take a chance and throw your dice
Now you’re dancing in the green light
Riding in the green light
Just release your brakes
Go on accelerate
No matter if you’re gonna crash
This night will never end

Following the stream
Hypnotized by chaos
There’s no need to stay afloat upon these waves of sound
We’re a beam of noise
Screaming names away
Turn the volume up until you’re deaf to memories

A billion bulbs in my head lighted up in a sec
And now everything is brighter than the skyline of LA
And I ride and I ride but I’m no passenger
Tonight I drive and this is for sure
Come on board, straight is the road, my body roams,
Party goes on, as I jam and I vogue
Sweating out notes without any U turn
I don’t feel the burden of this head that I hold
And I don’t wanna wander if I ever gonna stop
Cause I just wanna wander through the silence of the clock
Blood is boiling, the blue evaporates
We don’t even remember our own names
What’s hidden’s hitting my skin is heated
The pulse of my heart just keeps on screaming
No red I’m bleeding
No yellow to keep me
I’m dancing in the green light and I don’t stop tripping

Losing our mind in the green light
Breaking spirits free in the green light
Sweating music in the green light
Still we’re dancing in the green light

Tumbling in the green
Stumbling on the sin
Shaking out the pressure of this life
Don’t’ you ever wonder
Don’t you ever wonder if this ride is gonna end

Tumbling in the green
Stumbling on the sin
Shaking out the pressure of this life
Don’t’ you ever stop
Don’t you ever stop riding in the green light
Track Name: Butterflies You Deserve
BUTTERFLIES YOU DESERVE

When I’m gone who knows what
I will miss? Will I forgive?
When I’ll come how I’ll dream?
Will I keep on sleeping?

Well I just know today I am me, I’m good, I’m ok
I deserve the butterflies again in my life
All the questions will be solved in a lifetime or a day
I will pick them up along this freeway with no end

I wasted so much time
At a crossroads waiting to turn the car on
I’ve wasted so much time
Now I’m running to cross the line of horizon

Remains inside me just the wild breath of our feeling
I’m driving straight cause yesterday will never come again

I’m getting out of this place
You’re crying without asking

Well I just know that today I’m whole, I’m ok, I’m me
I see angels surfing through skyscrapers on a brand new skyline
All the butterflies I deserve I will find them someday
Flying along my path on those never ending freeways

I wasted so much time
At a crossroad waiting to turn the car on
I’ve wasted so much time
Now I’m running to cross the line of horizon

Remains inside me just the wild breath of our feeling
I’m driving straight cause yesterday will never come again

I was frightened I was foolish
But tomorrow waits for me to be better
I won’t waste it, not this time
The horizon line is ready to be crossed now

Remains inside me just the wild breath of our feeling
I’m driving straight cause yesterday will never come again
You’ll hear my voice inside the walls of our own heaven
I’ll pray for time to fill you soon with the butterflies you deserve
Track Name: Play Our Days
PLAY OUR DAYS

People sleeping in the air
Above a city made of black and white pictures
Here we are
The lights are turning down
We’re trying to fill some empty sounds
To fill an empty prayer

She looks at me through a portrait
I stare at her
I don’t know where she comes from
While somebody’s taking pictures of this moment
While we’re trying to keep everything
Trying to remember it

When times will be hard
Where will we be
When days will get dark
Who knows if we’ll meet
Where we’re gonna end
And where we’re gonna play
If we still will be the same
If we’ll have the same way to play our days

Here we are
People calling us
And we’re trying to separate the cold outside our world
We’re trying to get warm
On a September night
When we still feel we’re able to give something to this world

When times will be hard
Where will we be
And when days will get so dark
Who knows, who knows if we'll meet
Will we still be the same
Will we have the same aim
Will we still be able to play our days
Just like tonight

This night when we’re here
The lights are burning they’re turning to red and white
And colours mixing in our eyes
And notes are coming from our hands
The words are falling from the sky
And here we are, here we are playing our days
