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

to change his thoughts,

he keeps his head on the job

Verse 3
A G
Images don’t tell about
C F A G
the flaming colors that their world turned into

Although they try to capture it with photographs

they fade away, they can’t be caught
D C D C
and mounted,
D C D
in a framework with four sides
E D D

Is this really happening?

Verse 1
A F
Did you see it coming?
G A
How does it make you feel?
A F
Well, if you don’t feel anything
G A
I’m sure that’s when you’re weak

When they think we’re fragile

they didn’t hear the news

With lack of sensibility

they mix up depressed with blue

Chorus

Is this really happening

or are we in a dream?

It all seems so unreal
Em Am
Nothing’s what it seems

We spent the whole time wondering,

where did they all go wrong

and how could all the vulnerable
G A
turn out to be so strong?

A F
What we have all been trying to find

while they kept asking for more,

was right around the corner

We’ve all been there before

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

Track Name: Don't Stop Teasing
Don’t Stop Teasing

Don’t stop teasing me with your love
You already made me crave for you, I can’t get enough
The receptors in my brain
keep me from going insane
They turn to the almighty up above

Keep on guiding me through the wild
Lure me into your life and I’ll be like a child
Lost in the sky,
asking myself why
Bound to remain aimless till the end of times

Don’t stop teasing me
Keep playing games with my heart
Never stop teasing me
with your love

Catch me if you can
Catch me if you can
Catch me if you can
with your love

I like it when you’re pulling a few strings,
manipulating the sound and the shape of things
Your dramatic play
is passionate in every way
Look into my eyes and a salacious scene begins

Don’t stop teasing me
Keep playing games with my heart
Never stop teasing me
with your love

Catch me if you can
Catch me if you can
Catch me if you can
with your love
