she dont look much like something but she’s something to see she don’t ask where to go to cause she’s already here she don’t know she’s supposed to be friendly and sweet she don’t look much like someone but she’s someone to me so she carries the weight of a traveller’s heart all the way from blood diamonds into a cheap old czech bar don’t be afraid to take what is yours, she might travel for fun, but she don’t love for sport so she was my companion through the cracks in this road but the first couple turns threw us way off our course i guess all of that dreaming was taking it’s toll we were saved by the heat and the madness it holds so she carries her torch into the heart of the dark but the jungle has swallowed our boots, boats and cars we sure were afraid to make something last but the horror, the horror has finally surpassed the horror, the horror has finally surpassed

Daddy Issues 04:04
if i’m the one that you adore then darling your adoring’s only made up of the pieces that your father left behind so i keep wearing his cologne old man’s shoes and ray bans on make sure you get exactly what you came here for to find so i have done all that i can not to use any of that knowledge against you and when you curl up next to me and your sigh sings insecurities i try my best to hide that i’m not half the man you need i’ve grown this beard for ages, pray it will soon go as gray as that old life i know your careless, absent father made you lead so i have done all that i can not to use any of that knowledge against you so you’ve achieved twice what i did without giving too much thought to it and still you shake the night away crying at your knees myself i know i’ll never love but with you i’m getting close enough so, yeah, you saved my life but somehow you still don’t see that there is really no more need trying your old man to please no star of endless strength could ever shed the light you breathe so i have done all that i can for to use all of these here words to convince you that all you did and whatever you’ll do not only makes me proud but makes me love you

Love Is Not 03:15
some say love is not a picture love is not a song love is not in hearts and souls it's nothing you were taught they say love is not a feeling it's not even good or bad and it's really not an open palm that gently strokes your head they say love is not a flower it's not growing into bloom and love could never be your savior or your doom they also say that it's not endless not even in your hopes and it certainly don't make you laugh cause it's also not a joke turn it up, turn it up, listen close there's a talk about love on the radio some say love is not the answer it's got no effect or goal and they say that it ain't got no warmth for this world so dark and cold they say love is not a cigarette nor a starlit midnight walk and they say it can't be leading us like an aging, blinding dog they say love is not a butterfly in your belly or your head and love is not the raging sea it's not even good in bed they say love is not in color on a plasma TV-screen and love is not a gesture be it gracious or obscene turn it up, turn it up, listen close there's a talk about love on the radio but i found love it is more subtle exactly like its name it’s mostly coming easy and leaves always so damn strange but it’s also overrated so it’s worthy of a song and with all these expectations we’re bound to go just wrong so let’s lock love in a structure a simple set of chords a cage for it to look at and no one will get hurt

all my life i was roaming, i was a looking for a home for a place to put the darker thoughts into a box where they belong i was lonesome lonesome lonesome lonesome long before you came better i aint knew it then, everyday just looked the same nothing’s ever lonely and nothing ever will be brighter than the day my love you were here with me i’m a man who’s loved a thousand souls before his own out of those thousand souls my dear, yours i loved the most cowardice, adolescence but blurred my vision babe, aint nothing i regret more than not keeping you safe, nothing’s ever lonely and nothing ever will be brighter than the day my love you were here with me now i passed some days all by myself thought it’d do some good right away this heart was aching like it usually never could truth is darling, i’s always running, since the day that i could walk but i finally found my resting place in the shelter of your heart. nothing’s ever lonely and nothing ever will be brighter than today my love you are here with me nothing’s ever lonely and nothing ever will if you just be with me today and tomorrow you will still

FWWL II 05:10
i braid your hair, wrap you in clothes wollen socks, it’s getting cold critical the doctors say too many plans for too few days that you have left but disregard their prophecies and let’s embark on frozen lakes on your two wheels i push your chair in circles till you raise your hand, the sign to stop you giggle wildly full of hope i goof around, you hide your fear and i tell you we could make it at least another year hands up hands down, they won’t always float around they quite never found their place, now you won’t last another day you have been my lucky strike but you won’t be here when i die you press the sun against your cheeks the only spot you really feel i dont care how long i got you tell me from your lion heart as long’s you’re here to testify that i had beauty in this life it looks like you and it tastes so sweet it feels and sounds still very real so how can it be that from now on each breath could be the last one that i draw hands up hands down, they won’t always float around they quite never found their place, now you won’t last another day my blood grows still as yours runs cold, as pure as ash and gold and snow, for the way the winds waves blow, so long you shall not return home you have been my lucky strike but you won’t be here when i die you’ll come upon an empty road travelling from an empty shore that you’ll reach in empty boats scanning miles and miles of coasts living life just fort o roam throw a dice and set a goal for the way that the wind blows so long you shall not come back home you’ll come upon an empty beach stirring sand and catch the breeze watch the sun until you sneeze through the salty air you’ll breath until it’s time to move along you set your sail, direction none let the waves just drag you on before the sunset you’re long gone
