The realization of this album is entirely made possible through crowd funding. In other words, the contribution of the people who believe in me and my music. Thanks so much for your support. Thank you for the change, thank you for the chance.

Track Name: Green Eyes
Damn boy you look so good
But I can’t have you around
Gotta keep a distance cause my feet
Don’t touch the ground anymore

Pretty boy you are no good
No you are not allowed
Have to stay away from you
Cause I’m about to drown

In your green eyes

Damn boy you got some moves
And boy I like your style
So I’m trying to figure out
What it takes to make you mine

When I think I’m getting there
When I think I found a way
I can see you smiling and
I’m trying not to get lost

In your green eyes
Oh in your green eyes
Oh in your green eyes

So next time I see you again
Imma have to stand my ground
Don’t want any more distraction
Have to be aware now

Next time I see you again, I will undertake
I am gonna stop you before I fall into
I am gonna stop you before I fall into

Your green eyes
Oh your green eyes
Oh your green eyes
Your green eyes

I am gonna stop you before I fall into
I am gonna stop you
Track Name: Burn Like The Sun
You take me out to dinner
You’re paying for my drinks
I return the favor
Because I really think
That I should get to know you
We’re always having fun
But I can’t get too close to you
Cause you burn like the sun

You burn like the sun

And though your light is blinding
To me it’s crystal clear
I think you’re just hiding
From the clouds that might appear
I promise I’ll be with you
I promise I won’t run
But I can’t get too close to you
Cause you burn like the sun

You are like the sun

Don’t get too close to me
You’re burning my skin
Desire tempting me
You are making me sin
Don’t get too close to me
You’re burning my skin
Oh no, oh no, no I’m giving in

So now I am just waiting
Waiting for a call
Maybe we can meet up
And have ourselves a ball
Spend more time together
But in the end we will have none
But I can’t get too close to you
Cause you burn like the sun

Don’t get too close to me
You’re burning my skin
Desire tempting me
You are making me sin
Don’t get too close to me
You’re burning my skin
Oh no, oh no, no I’m giving in

Don’t get too close to me (you are like the sun)
This is confusing me (you are like the sun)
Desire tempting me (you are like the sun)
Oh you gotta be kidding me

Burn like the sun
Burn like the sun
Burn like the sun
Track Name: Cross Over
You’ve been holding back for a while now
You are tired of being told what to do
But you never said what was on your mind
Cause people would always speak for you

So you finally start a rebellion
Yeah you finally stand up for yourself
But the pressure you’re under is taking its toll
And you don’t realize you need help
you need help

Ooh holding on to a memory
Ooh but still looking forward
Ooh standing on a bridge of uncertainty
Ooh afraid to cross over

Look at what you have become now
You try to undo your mistakes
If only you were able to turn back time
But you know well enough it’s too late
It’s too late, it’s too late, It’s too late

Ooh holding on to a memory
Ooh but still looking forward
Ooh standing on a bridge of uncertainty
Ooh afraid to cross over

Afraid to cross over
Afraid to cross over
Afraid to cross over
Afraid to cross over

Ooh holding on to a memory
Ooh but still looking forward
Ooh standing on a bridge of uncertainty
Ooh afraid to cross over

Afraid to cross over
Track Name: Crazy Wasting
I follow you around to all these places
And it sure wears me out, don’t know what else to do
When I ask you why, there’s no real answer
It only takes your smile for me to continue

I do it all for you, do you realize
I do it all for you, please don’t ask me why

I need something else, need something different
Like somebody else but I want only you
I follow you around to all these places
But what I’m trying to find I cannot find with you

I do it all for you, I hope you realize
I do it all for you, please don’t ask me why

Even though I have my doubts, you always make me shine
If my efforts go to waste, I don’t mind

I do it all for you, I hope you realize
I do it all for you, no need to ask me why
I do it all for you
I do it all for you

No need to ask me why
Track Name: The Fire Isn't There
I know that we mean really well
But up to now we didn’t know how we could tell
That we don’t really want the same
And now we are just looking for someone to blame

Goodbye

You never really listened or maybe I didn’t really care
Of course I’m gonna miss you but the fire isn’t there
You never really listened or maybe I didn’t really care
Of course I’m gonna miss you but the fire isn’t there

There is nothing left to say
I’m sure we’ll meet again along the way
Please just try to understand
The road was long but now it has come to an end

Goodbye
Goodbye

You never really listened or maybe I didn’t really care
Of course I’m gonna miss you but the fire isn’t there
You never really listened or maybe I didn’t really care
Of course I’m gonna miss you but the fire isn’t there

I know that we mean really well
But up to now we didn’t know how we could tell
That we don’t really want the same
And now we are just looking for someone to blame

There is nothing left to say
I’m sure we’ll meet again along the way
Please just try to understand
The road was long but now it has come to an end
Track Name: Lauma
So many things we haven’t told you
So many things we’ll never get to say
So many things we’d like to ask you
But It’s too late anyway

Now you’re gone
You decided to leave us
But now you’re gone
With a smile on the surface

Did you forget to wake up that night
Did you forget to breathe
Were you curious about the other side
Did you really have to leave

Now you’re gone
You decided to leave us
But now you’re gone
With a smile on the surface

You could at least have said goodbye
You could at least have told us why
You could at least have said goodbye
There was no need for you to lie

Now you’re gone
You decided to leave us
But now you’re gone
With a smile on the surface

Now you’re gone
You decided to leave us
But now you’re gone
With a smile on the surface
Track Name: Never Meant To Hurt You
You don’t want to talk to me
I never meant to upset you
It hurts when you’re ignoring me
I am obliged to ask you

To forgive to forget
All the things I said
All the things I have done
Bad choices I made
And so many mistakes
I know I’ve done wrong

But I never meant to hurt you
Never meant to hurt you

Disappointment in your eyes
You seem to look right through me
Your silence makes me deaf
I can’t hear anything, I can’t hear anything
I am obliged to ask you

To forgive to forget
All the things I said
All the things I have done
Bad choices I made
And so many mistakes
I know I’ve done wrong

But I never meant to hurt you
Never meant to hurt you
Never meant to hurt you
Track Name: Keep Walking Girl
No one can see that she’s an angel
Only one dream, trying hard to make it real
Before the wolves take it, the wolves know it

Very determined, not afraid to start a fight
A road full of dangers, a road so unpredictable
Oh keep walking, keep walking girl

When your feet can’t take the distance
It’s time to spread your wings
Forget about your frustrations and fly

Her shoes are slowly wearing out
She doesn’t really mind
Cause her shoes don’t do the walking
It’s the ambition inside
Keep walking girl, oh keep walking girl

When your feet can’t take the distance
It’s time to spread your wings
Forget about your frustrations and fly

Oh don’t worry ‘bout falling
Oh gravity won’t take you down

Keep walking girl
Keep walking girl
Keep walking girl
Keep walking girl

When your feet can’t take the distance
It’s time to spread your wings
Forget about your frustrations and fly
Track Name: Change
If you think you can put me down
And that you can control me
I will show you what I can
I’ll show you who I can be

Don’t you order me around
I’ll do what makes me happy
You can talk behind my back
But I won’t let you get me

And it’s time for me to change
Got some things to do
Gotta get myself together

I can’t believe I tried so hard
to give you satisfaction
I didn’t dare to say a thing
afraid of your reaction

Now I want to scream out loud
I want to make a difference
I’m gonna start over again
I’m gonna take my chance

And it’s time for me to change
Got some things to do
Gotta get myself together

I’m making making
my own decisions
I’m making making

And it’s time for me to change
And it’s time for me to change
And it’s time for me to change
And it’s time for me to change

I’m waiting waiting
For the right time and place
Ooh so I’m changing changing
Changing
Track Name: It Works Out
Starting out with nothing
Slowly building up
We just keep on trying
Making our own luck

Making something out of nothing
Bricks are piling up
We will keep on climbing
But if we should get stuck

We hope it works out
Oh hope it works out

No need to understand us
No need to make remarks
No need to hear us out
Just give us some credit
We’re only looking for our sound

It works out
Oh it works out
Oh it works out
Oh it works out

If something bad should happen
If something bad occurs
Oh we will keep on going
A little rain doesn’t hurt

If something bad should happen
If something bad occurs
Oh we will keep on going
A little rain doesn’t hurt

Oh it works out oh
Oh it works out oh
