I remember

Another mountain for one day
I lonely

I say it’s only the sea
Once upon a drive

Together we could steal time
Love will conquer

We stood so high
The sea will help us

Maybe we’re lying
There’s nothing

We can be enough
We can just for one day

I wish you
Only mountains and the sea

We can lose
Nothing greater

Shame was on the other side
Forever and ever

You will drive them away
Just for one day

Overflow with all
Your one day

Just for heart
We can keep us together

We could be safer
And nothing believe

In a haystack of despair
We kissed

As though nothing could remember
(I remember)

Put your thinking cap on

Put your thinking cap on
Come get a hit

Syncopated rhymes are out
You rock ‘n rollers

When u hear my music
You won’t leave this

Thought in the air
And face the strange

In the gallows of my mind
A flow and a spray

My eyes dream big
More mouth than manure

Immune to your consultations
Expect the inner forces

Those who oppose
Never caught a flow

I am funky
Turn may change me

Aware they’re going
I won’t leave this town

Too much seekin’
It’s gettin’ tricky

Makin’ a stand
I say better way

Call upon the beat
That I’m rockin’

I don’t wanna be non-stop
I still don’t know what

Changes fascinating me
‘Cause I’ve seen the line

I’m not sayin’ I’m better
Time may change me

I give it this passion
Without a pistol, without a gun

I don’t play the one and only
Let’s get this running

I put my foot in
Turn and face the strange

Where’s your shame
Better may change me

Tell the truth
But never that

A groove with feeling
And so I turned myself

constellations never fail

constellations never fail
to light the face close to mine

i find my comfort
in the sea of tranquility

heart is bright enough
cross the stars

far out / my destiny
in a moonage daydream

your space / on a sleepless moon
arms are wide enough

when / we’re worlds apart
stars / in the heart

shine on both of us

moon is blue

moon is blue / thank you
drive me crazy / do

i don’t care
we love her very much

i’m stepping in your night
i can spend the night in you

six, five four, three, two
there’s nothing i can do

calling out your name
far above me

don’t care what we do
to be around you

touch the place in me
just take me

the paint i bought won’t dry

the paint i bought won’t dry
you can’t be too beautiful

i’m gonna show / don’t need experience
i’m more compatible with women / not girls

you just leave / they messed up
you don’t have to / leave it all up to me

and if you ever rule my world
you don’t have to be rich

i want to be your school
not your book of rules

ain’t no fantasy
gonna keep you warm and dry
