Track Name: Right Now [Acoustic-Version featuring Amanda Haas]
Keep your hands tight to the wheel
And get me out of this weird misery
Let's try a break and dissappear
It's not the same
At least the way that I feel

Cos the way I feel right now
I can't help
It's getting round and round
Round and round and round
I can't understand somehow
Let me go
I need to leave right now
Get off now

I can't help
I can't reveal
Is there another possibility
Isn't me who feeds the fear
Oh is it anything
that comes from you dear

Cos the way I feel right now
I can't help
It's getting round and round
Round and round and round
I can't understand somehow
Let me go
I need to leave right now
Get me off now
Track Name: Hasn't Happened Yet [Acoustic-Version featuring Amanda Haas]
Waiting for the sun to melt the mood of my heart
Thinking of the days
But cannot think my thoughts loud
Waiting for a moment, a move to react
Something that hasn't quite happened yet

Can you tell what I say from what I mean
Can you read my mind and explain it to me
Is there anything I might miss
To pay more attention to?
Is there something wrong
In what I always do?

Waiting for a cloud to lift me up in the sky
I need to look from above why I'm down all the time
Scares me to see you agree to their laws
But the smallest reaction does still need a cause

If you get the chance twice
Are you sure you would try the same way?
Remember all of your tries have brought you here
Is there any question in time?
Any answer to the big mark?
Cos I look and I find any change even from this far

Looking for direction in an everchanging time
Should I turn to the left or turn to the right?
Just a little kick to some of those sides
But I stuck in the middle with a limited sight

And I can't keep from holding on
When I haven't started yet
I can't keep on trying but I still do
And I won't break the circle
Mine is not a straight line
But I'm always trying to continue

Waiting for the sun to melt the mood of my heart
Thinking of the days
But cannot think my thoughts loud
Waiting for a moment, a move to react
Something that hasn't quite happened yet
No something that hasn't quite happened yet
Track Name: Since You Came In [Acoustic-Version featuring Amanda Haas]
There were words I once pushed off
To never heard and never said again
I pulled strings around my throat
To never talk and never sing again

Once I was longing for a hold
I broke the spell the other way and then
I built walls around that door
To never ever let somebody in
Let's bring 'em back in

Cos this place is not the same
Since you came in
And this room is like a hall
Since you came in
And my heart is on my tongue
While my head's above the clouds
Since you came in

There were signals I ignored
For what's the cause for me they all turned red
A self-designed self-secure
Around a spot that inside was dead

To never fall in love again
Never to show who I really am
not frozen to the core
But worlds apart from where you been
Say where have you been

Cos this place is not the same
Since you came in
And my voice knows softer words
Since you came in
And my heart welcomes the sun
And I know where I belong
Since you came in
Track Name: I'm Not Here [Acoustic-Version featuring Amanda Haas]
Laughing
Screaming
Down at the lake
Smiling while I'm
Drifting away
Again

I'm not here
While I am here with you

Beauty
Sunshine
Everyone is fine
Smiling
Waiting
I'm not here
Beauty
Sunshine
I'm not here
Laughing
Screaming
I'm not here
Curses curses curses
I'm not here again

I'm not here
While I am here with you
Track Name: Come On Down [Acoustic-Version featuring Amanda Haas]
Come on down here
Hidden from the sun
You might know so
Tell me what went wrong

And if you stay with
Me I have no fear
I believe there's no repeating
I believe in nothing here

Come on down see
All your friends are here
There's no sound but
A gloaming atmosphere

The strength of silence
Wrapped around our breathe
I believe in any goddess
But this is heavenness

And I am not lonesome
Track Name: Quiet Humming In The Back Of My Head [Acoustic-Version featuring Amanda Haas]
In the dark of my room I melt
Words in my head, they come together
Then they suddendly fade
I'm tired of writing so they slip away
Until everything's gone there is still
A quiet humming in the back of my head

I'm waiting for you now nearly an hour
The second time today
Yeah thanx a lot!
I'm some kind of drowning in thoughts
Hey what am I worth?
I need something to remind me what is good
A quiet humming in the back of my head

Late at night when there's nobody home
I'm looking for the sound to let my heart grow
When I am lonley and there's no aim ahead
I am glad there's still
A quiet humming in the back of my head
Track Name: Don't Wait For Me [Acoustic-Version featuring Amanda Haas]
There's something I might lost
On the spiral steps to you
Down the trail where you roam

Just stay where you're arrested
And I'm gonna go my way
So I might find it back

The place we shared
I won't be there
Don't wait for me

Well someday far in our future
We both might meet again
But I don't care right now

So if you turn the right way
I will surely turn to left
I will avoid our tracks might cross

The place we shared
I won't be there
Don't wait for me
Track Name: Keep Talking [Acoustic-Version featuring Amanda Haas]
There's an echo in your words
Allthough you stopped talking
Of the things you just said
Might have direction for me

Do you want me to know
Or am I just wishing
Cos it's times like these
I have to remind me of her

Keep talking
I'm thirsty for your words
Don't stop talking
Keep the story running
And hang on

With the heart upon my tongue
I answer your questions
I would tell you all about
But you already know

And if you'd stop I'd repeat backwards
Hang on listening to your voice
And if you like you can come over
You know you always have a choice

Keep talking
I'm thirsty for your words
Don't stop talking
Keep the story running
And hang on

Sometimes I am pretending
When you're not around
I'm answering questions
I just ask myself

And so I'm alone
But I ain't lonley
I keep the story running
And hang on
Track Name: Sleep Again [Acoustic-Version featuring Amanda Haas]
I thought I knew
I been prepared
But finally this state is there
I dare any reaction
Except then lock myself away
I just survive by sleep all day

I'd turn the clock to it will happen
The second month of every year again
Won't pass me and
I go to sleep again

Although I knew it'll come to this
Guess the experience had shown it would
It's kinda like a bad surprise
I still can't handle with that mood

Those easy tricks I know to fix
All of these lunatics inside my brain
An icy rain make the blackbird sing again

I just woke to fall asleep once new
I can't stand to be surrounded by you

Even I warned you I'm not sure
You understand this state I'm in
I just can hope for you still like me
When these phases finally end
I hope we are still friends then

It's something different just to talk of
Then to be right into this again
Be patient then
So I will sing again

I just woke to fall asleep once new
I can't stand to be surrounded by you
Track Name: Sit + Wait [Acoustic-Version featuring Amanda Haas]
I sit and wait like many times before
For you to come on home
I'm here waiting, I'm all alone
You say you'd be back soon

But that was in the afternoon
And now it's late
I sit and wait

I watch the hours pass by
I watch the hours pass by
I watch the hours pass by
Sit and wait

I sit and wait like many times before
For you to come on home
I'm here waiting, I'm all alone
You say you'd be back soon

But that was in the afternoon
But that was in the afternoon
I watch the hours pass by

I sit and write these words
And wait for your return
Although everything hurts
I seemed to need my lesson learned

I watch the hours pass by
I watch the hours pass by
I watch the hours pass by
Sit and wait
Track Name: The Patient [Acoustic-Version featuring Amanda Haas]
Tell me doctor is there cure for
The feelings that near me
Is there any medicine to numb this old pain
Tell me doc is there a point to remove what I'm feeling
'cause it hurts all the time

So tell me doctor does it need to
Remain such a long time
Do you have some coloured pills to let go off my mind
Brush away the tears
And bring back the smile on my face now
Make me stop crying because it feels like dying

Can't you tell yourself a story from looking in my eyes
Do I really need to tell you the whole story twice
Do we have to zizzle up all these tiny small details
I ain't telling no lies but I'll follow you advice

Yes I'm trying to continue the walk I once followed
But it's never always easy to stay on that track
I sometimes seem to lose my faith in
This slaved old direction and get lost instead

So will you lend over your hand then
And show me the bright side
I know that it's always there
But sometimes I walk blind

Carry me to silent water and everyday sunshine
Yeah make me feel fine
And give me back what once was mine

Hey doctor tell her that someday
I might try to forgive her
Tell her doctor it's the time that I learn to forget
Tell her that I never come back
And found a good lover
And I don't regret what she and I once had
