Track Name: Ode To The Sun
Ode To The Sun

Have a look at the sky
I think it s high time for a ride
Let's jump into the van
And get away, as far as we can

Let's find a nice place by a lake
And feel the wind on our face
Let us lie down by the waterside
Till we feel like taking another dive

Let us float and inhale the day
Drink some sunlight
before it fades away

I got my uke with me, let's sing some songs
To feel as one is all I want
And when the sun starts sinking behind the trees
We're all feeling satisfied and free

Let us float and inhale the day
Drink some sunlight
and then watch it fade away ...

away...

Watch the sparks flying...
Watch the flames dancing
Track Name: Lucky Day
Lucky Day

I got on my bike, I made it straight to a river
I followed the river till I reached the sea
Got rid of my clothes and took a dip in the water
`cause that was just where I was longing to be, thinking...

Almost nothing left to desire for today
To call this one... another lucky day

I took out my uke and played a song to the wind
Embraced the dreams that arrived and felt my blood go so wild
I took some deep breaths and let the sun warm my skin
All my best plans were none, yet everything would be fine, thinking...

Almost nothing left to desire for today
To call this one... another lucky day

I cycled back to the city with some lines in my mind
Felt at peace with myself and so with everything else
What a gift just to witness those clouds in the sky
All that was yet to come, oh well I just couldn't tell, thinking...

Almost nothing left to desire for today
To call this one... another lucky day
Track Name: On My Mind (Pfingstmontag)
On My Mind (Pfingstmontag)

The sun is still the same
Yet it shines so much brighter than just yesterday
And the air, it may not be clearer
Yet today, the sky feels so much nearer

And the gentle breeze it feels so divine
While all the leaves are waving me hello
... Since you are on my mind
Since I've seen your smiling eyes

And my heart, it may beat the same way
Yet it beats much more decisively today
My breath, it may not have changed
Yet today I breathe so much lighter than just yesterday


And the gentle breeze it feels so divine
While all the leaves are waving me hello
... Since you are on my mind
Since I've seen your smiling eyes

Since I'm spending all my time with you...
on my mind
Track Name: Dusty Sunset
Dusty Sunset


This must be the place
And above all the characteristics of the place
This must be the time
To be nowhere to be found

To light up all the candles and go around
To acknowledge the stones that each day has given us

And then throw it all back to where the flowers look like dust
Throw it all back to where the sunset looks like rust

There must be a way of slowing down the pace
This must be the mind that's always been so hard to find

Go light up all the candles and go around
Acknowledge the stones that each day has given us

And then throw it all back to where the flowers look like dust
Throw it all back to where the sunset looks like rust

This must be the place and above all, the characteristics of the place
Track Name: Railways
Railways

Sittin' on a train in the Czech Republic
Travellin' beyond borders
Thinkin' 'bout the ways that I'd like to change
And wonderin' how to regain mental order

While the raindrops are fallin' on the rails
The sound they're makin' might be some precious tale
That you'll only hear if you try not to translate

Sittin' on the same train but now in Germany
Allowin' myself to make these lines a mess
'Cause nothing might ever really reach the ground
Before these lights are goin' out...

While the sunrays are dryin' up the rails
And the silence in them might be some precious tale
That you'll only hear if you try not to translate

And the raindrops are fallin' on the rails
The sound they're makin' might be some precious tale
That you'll only hear if you try not to translate
Track Name: In Good Company
In Good Company

No, I don't need a thing
But a little sand under my feet
The air is free and so are the waves
And the sweet, sweet warmth upon my face

Well, I may be longing for someone to care
I may be longing for someone to adore
I may be longing for someone to share this with but...

No, I don't need a thing
But a little soil under my feet
The air is free and so are the trees
And the sweet, sweet warmth upon my face

I may be longing for someone to care for
I may be longing for somene to adore
I may be longing for someone to share this with but...

I am in good company spending time here by the sea
I am in good company spending time here just with me
Track Name: Friends Like You
Friends like you

I've got friends that I rarely see, yet so familiar when we meet
And I've got friends who are glad to give a hand in whichever way they can
I've got friends who offer me their bed and sleep in sleeping bags themselves
I've got friends who understand oh so clearly who I am (almost better than myself sometimes)

And I guess that I'm more than blessed... with friends like you
Yeah I guess that I'm more than blessed... with friends like you

I've got friends who've helped me grow so much and make me go ahead
I've got friends who proved to be friends indeed when I was so in need
And I've got friends who call up friends when they need help in helping me
I've got friends who cheer me up by making me want to make them laugh

Yeah I guess that I'm more than blessed... with friends like you

Ah you know we never know just what the future holds
But I'll try to be true and to just be a friend like you

And I know that I'm more than blessed... with friends like you
Yeah I know that I'm more than blessed... with friends like you
I do love you too...
Track Name: Navigating
Navigating

I'm a sailor on the ocean
I feel the Earth in constant motion

I keep my eyes on the horizon
I keep my eyes on the horizon

With my heart and mind in place
I am navigating time and space
With my heart and mind in place
I am travelling at my own pace

I have sailed through many a storm
And after each one I'm reborn

I keep my eyes on the horizon
I keep my eyes on the horizon

With my heart and mind in place
I am navigating time and space
With my heart and mind in place
I am travelling at my own pace

I'm reading signs across the sky
My soul's in balance with the tides
Track Name: Beautiful Exile
Beautiful Exile- Daniel Haselwanter
 
Alright now, here we are
So far, so far...
From any city, street or bar
With our eyes upon the stars
 
When we go fishing from a boat
The lake is shimmering like gold
Breathe in the beauty that unfolds
No greater peacefulness I've ever known
 
This little cottage in the wild
Gets me excited like a child
Hardly believe I may reside
In such a beautiful exile
 
The sauna's ready, let's get in
Make me sweat just like a Finn
When we're done we'll take a swim
I guess my soul is growing wings

From the other side of the lake
Two wolves are howling a goodnight to me …
Track Name: Navigating (exclusive acoustic version)
Navigating

I'm a sailor on the ocean
I feel the Earth in constant motion

I keep my eyes on the horizon
I keep my eyes on the horizon

With my heart and mind in place
I am navigating time and space
With my heart and mind in place
I am travelling at my own pace

I have sailed through many a storm
And after each one I'm reborn

I keep my eyes on the horizon
I keep my eyes on the horizon

With my heart and mind in place
I am navigating time and space
With my heart and mind in place
I am travelling at my own pace

I'm reading signs across the sky
My soul's in balance with the tides
