Track Name: The Story Of My Life
The Story Of My Life

Verse 1
Way back at the academy
I had a difficult time
keeping up with the passion
deep inside
Ambition got a hold on me
My love didn’t feel right,
ruining all we’d accomplished
in a couple of nights
Pre-chorus
Let me explain
how I suffered and thrived
It’s a colorful tale I have to tell,
the story of my life
Verse 2
Started to lose energy,
inspiration declined
I got into a state
of disintegration
My mind clouded with questions,
my heart drowning in tears
I was searching for answers
without deliberation
Pre-Chorus
Don’t ever go down this track,
unless there’s nowhere left to go
I need to report, my friend,
the story of my life
Chorus
How can you love someone
How can you love someone
Verse 3
Like the crew of the Enterprise
I was bound to go
where no man
had gone before
Don’t follow my footsteps
It just can’t be done
Choose your own path,
don’t do what I have done
Pre-Chorus
Don’t ever try the same
You might not come out well
It’s one of a kind, my love,
the story of my life
Chorus
How can you love someone
How can you love someone
Chorus
How can you love someone
How can you love someone

I Just Have To Wonder
E Fis G
In my childhood
D
there was an orchard
G
with trees full of apples
A
where we used to play
E Fis G
In this place
D
that only exists
G
in my memories
D
of those days
A A G
Well, I just have to wonder
A
why nature’s been replaced
G
by bricks and concrete,
A
gloomy and grey
A A G
Oh, I just have to wonder
A
why beauty fades away
G
wherever people
D
decided to stay
E Fis G
First came the factories
D
and then all the houses
G
For food on the table
A
the fruit couldn’t remain
E Fis G
It was fifty years ago
D
but I still remember
G
how tall the trees stood

right onto this day

And I just have to wonder

by bricks and concrete,

Oh, I just have to wonder

Track Name: Road To The Right Places
Road To The Right Places

Verse 1
I had to say goodbye to every well-known face
and I even tried not to face the truth
There’s no end to where I’m going
and to where this stream is flowing
Got to keep movin’ or the devil be here today

Verse 2
At first, I couldn’t find the right direction
I even had to look into the past
Had to lie, saying I don’t have friends
Nobody could understand
heaven’s gate’s supposed to be on this way

Chorus
I’m searching for the road to the right places
Guided by nothing but the light
A road with rocks and shaking bridges
I have to ride along the ridges
The old dream’s still here, the vibes remain

Instrumental bridge

Verse 3
I’ll vanish once more without a visible trace
Maybe I’ll even disappear into the blue
There’s no end to where I’m going
and to all the future’s showing
I have to keep moving or evil’s here to stay

Verse 4
Believe me, I had nothing but good intentions
All that I can say is I did my best
I’ve seen the Holy Trinity
while seeking for infinity
Saint Peter, will you let me past the gate?

Chorus
I’m looking for the road to the right places
Threatened by shadows in the night
A road with sandstorms and tornadoes
Any ole way that the wind blows
The tree of life will be rediscovered someday
The tree of life will be rediscovered someday
The tree of life will be rediscovered someday

E Gism
I really had to stay away
Fism
afraid to end it all that day
E Gism
We were not ready for a true romance
Fism
You just wouldn’t fade away
E Gism Fism
I couldn’t let go (no-no)

E Gism
Don’t be afraid to fail or fall
Fism
Take a look at the stars above
E Gism
and think about being with me
Fism
Do you think that you’d be pleased
E Gism Fism
once more, once more
