Hello! 01:13
I just came by to say hi It feels good to be back Hello (Sorry to keep you waiting) Hello (Can I get you anything?) I'm not here to tell you what to do I was bored and now I'm playing for you Hello Don't have the illusion It matters what you say Few are really listening anyway Hello (Sorry to keep you waiting) Hello (Can I get you anything?) I'm not here to tell you what to do I was bored and now I'm playing for you Hello

the train is leaving the signs are clear you don't have time to stay here this monkey needs to learn some tricks you need a solution you need a fix do you remember never forget when everything was better the dreams you once had where do you want to go you can leave now or stay and finish what you've started

Forests full of trees Beaches full of sand All the water in the sea Can't express how I feel Give me back your Love Give me back your Love Give me your love Broken leaves in a sunset bar Ash in a forgotten jar Give me back your Love Give me back your Love Give me your love

Serenity 01:40
in the eye of the storm to tired to fight seeking composure so much to hide accept the situation with good grace close your eyes put on a brave face serenity floating around nowhere to go seek the light ignore the dark hole serenity ecstasy, joy acceptance, at ease quiet, calmness, optimism love and peace serenity I don't care I'm still free They can't take The sky from me

Michael Penn 02:28
quality music is hard to find so much talent is wasted record companies are on their way down hail the man wearing Euterpe's crown he's the man Michael Penn I am a big fan he is Aimee's Man his name is Penn escaping the LA mould the Hydra monster to unfold marrying a kindred spirit she is nice but he's in it he's the man Michael Penn I am a big fan he may not be the prince of men but we know his name is Penn he's the man Michael Penn I am a big fan he's doing what he can his name is Penn his name is Penn try to remember if you can his name is Penn

Running 02:04
Speed is of the essence Never lose time Time is money And money feels so fine Meetings here and there Goals to fulfill Bucket lists Seeking cheap thrills Always running Always running One day you'll be standing still / so tired You cannot move anymore Looking back Was it worth it all?

Battle here, battle there One war or more, I don't care Genocide is a common word Ethnic cleansing all I heard I don't care about politicians ... ruining the world You can protest all you want Money & power rules the world You can pray all you want It won't change a thing I'm afraid I don't care about politicians ... ruining the world

here we have another war or a crises near or far oh what a mess what a great success I know I know life is unfair it’s not that I’m lazy I just don’t care I don't care I don't care I don't care I don't care I'm in the middle of the rest of my life no house no car no kids no wife I couldn’t care less I couldn’t care less I couldn’t care less I couldn’t care less

too many choices fighting in your head hearing all these voices drives you sad afraid to feel low on a sunny day when you want to grow you'll need some rain follow your intuition follow your intuition take a decision follow your intuition follow your intuition follow your intuition here is your new mission follow your intuition

the plants on my window sill don't greet me when i come home no great tasks to fulfill life is one long dial tone a slow disintegration of the heart I'm a speaker not a talker i don't run, I'm a walker But are we standing still planes go up and planes come down you never know who'll be around in your final moments this is what life has in stock a slow disintegration of the heart I'm a speaker not a talker i don't run, I'm a walker But are we standing still when you think you can't hide who you are
