Track Name: Today
today I`ve found my own way
today I`ve gone to wander
you
needn`t remember me
forget me
please
Track Name: The Wolfish Summer
toss me shade of autumn
I`d like to see how my garden dies
play the sound of grapes and I will treat it as a lullaby
gather it in thunder
strike into my overgrown hot heart

send the shade of autumn
to the sunset of our morning road
hide the glow of sunrise in your hand
keep it till I stand

windows` rhythmic balance
trees in fruitful standstill
I can`t find myself in

plenty of grass and no flowers
why has she not but just tried with her will
she turned the dances of August into funeral March

swans are getting sunburnt
in the middle of the dirty lake
I sit on the footbridge with the fading touch of that happiness
this is the last sunny day this summer
hey-o-hey
it was to have been my best holiday
Track Name: The Cracker
and I am a cracker
and my band is round
I`ve been always burning inside every love
sometimes cannot sleep `cos my nose is too big
no one looks into my eyes

and I am a pillow
to swallow all your tears
you can speak about all your moments of fear
I can show you mine
yours will soon disappear
then we`ll slide into a dream

my girl has left me on the shore
though I didn`t move the waves
but maybe it is not the real end
I can`t wait the moment I will meet her
`cos the cracker`s almost eaten

her hair is getting greener
and it weighs a tone
she says her eyes are strange
it is true there is love
and an A-flat chord is too hard on her guitar
she allowed to show her how

but now she`s left me on the shore
in the middle of the song
but maybe it`s a stop but not the end
I can`t wait the moment I will meet her
`cos the cracker`s almost eaten

and I am a flower
waiting for the sun
know that rainy days they are necessary to grow
but if it`s too much I`ll get stuck in the mud

oh how good a heart she`s got
Track Name: Following The Moon
the wings of mist are covering
everything I saw
before

I can`t see the way I go
some stones are here
I often fall

I dare not call myself a man
I`m rather a wolf
I dare not think you`ll take my hand
I`ll follow the moon

the streams of stars remembering
everything I had before
I have lost direction so
I just don`t care
where I will come
Track Name: Just For Your Smile
I am just a won songwriter
lost in love I have for you
I don`t believe in my songs
I don`t believe in my heart
but sometimes even I have to admit
I wrote something right
remember it is too due to you
and for your smile

I am just a jester`s figure
lost in jokes I make for you
I don`t believe in my laugh
I don`t believe in my mind
but sometimes even I have to admit
I`ve said something bright
remember it is too due to you and for your smile

I am just a lonely knight
who always tries to fight for day
I don`t believe in my self
I don`t believe in my strength
but sometimes even I have to admit
I`ve defended my shield
remember it is too due to you and for your teeth

just for your smile
Track Name: Toss Me
I never knew a star so high like You
I knever new a star so low like You

I never knew a star so bright like You
I knever new a star so light like You

show me toss me vastness of Your light

I never knew a star might shine all day
I never knew a star might shine all day

show me toss me vastness of Your light
Track Name: The Larch
the hill could be easily climbed
by a little child
but in an unknown strange way
in an unknown strange way
everyone decides to pass
by

invariability frightens
that`s why they turn around
shadows of the sweetness
cannot save but remain

and the larch
on the hill
keeps its green
on the needles
on and on
darkened green
of overripe past
share its shadows if you want
share its branches
reach the top
but if you found
Lady Pine

this love could be always caught
even by a worm
but in an unknown strange way
in an unknown strange way
everyone decides to laugh
Track Name: The Choice
when you`re walking through the past days
whom do you meet?
looking forward to the future
whom do you see?

there`s always the same person in your memories
there`s always the same girl in your smile
and now you know
your love is strong

when you`re roaming in your mind`s eyes
who do you look for?
when you cry under your cross
who do you pray for?

there`s always the same person in the frost
there`s always the same girl in your words
and now you know
your love is strong
