Track Name: The Lighthouse
you soar up into the sky
here up high you see for miles
but you´re only whispering
"bring it back, bring it back to me"

for hundreds of years
you can hear the ocean roar
but the ship with your love on board was never seen

at the end of the line
there were not so many times
and all of this because of a promise

so you´re standing here all night
fighting against the tides and storms
you flash your yellow light
you won´t keep your eyes
from the ocean..
Track Name: Mr. Bonaparte
you once sended me a postcard from your trip in Paris
there was a bunch of soldiers - sitting in ruins
back in 1812 in Moscow
the russians burned their city down
to stop napoleon from taking their homes

the smell of smoke an iron was lingering in the air
and the night sky slipped into its dress of sanguine
was it really worth it, mr. bonaparte?
when you saw those bodys lying in the dirt

weren´t you one of them..

are you one of them..
Track Name: Slow Down
the city is mourning for the summer
I really want us to leave
here they say: "you cannot be alone"
but nowadays I´m feeling stucked

love, please take me down to the water
I´m afraid I´ll never get it right

follow the traces of the golden wonder!
it leads us to places we´ve never been
I like to understand how this is going
it seems like all these trees are burning

love, please take me dow to the water
I´m afraid I´ll never get it right
you know how much days there are in autumn
let´s escape and slow down for a while

I´m standing by the river
where the salmons swim upstream
I washed my hands in cold water
so that they are clean again
and taking all my courage
I wade into the stream
if I´ll ever reach the shore
I will build a house for our own sake

love, please take me dow to the water
I´m afraid I´ll never get it right
you know how much days there are in autumn
let´s escape and slow down for a while
Track Name: To Rome, to Rome
Aquiver and with lots of hope
the train left the station and the air filled with smoke
she´s watching the landscape
while she´s wondering which adventures she will take

So leave all this behind you
there´s plenty more you have to see
and don´t be worried about us
we´ll be waiting here

At flea markets and cheap hostels
she´s on the search for postcards and what kinda person she is
In eternal cities, all on her own
there´s nothing to be ashamed of if you´re feeling left alone

So leave all this behind you
there´s plenty more you have to see
and don´t be worried about us
we´ll be waiting here
Track Name: Woods of Birnam
in the old woods of Birnam
amongst black oaks
there lies a wooden heart

she comes from a city
which never falls asleep
but today she plans her escape

she runs through the forest
leaves foxes behind
she´s trying to find what she lost

her eyes are wide-open
she spreads her wings
she takes off to watch stars collide

all time she thought she´ll gonna die
and that she´ll never see
how it ends
but sometimes it isn´t meant to be
so take your wooden heart
and leave..

and she runs for miles..

till she reaches the northern shore
at dawn: the atlantic ocean
she tosses it into the flood
and no one ever saw her again.
