Track Name: Morose Rose
spread your bloody fragile lips
let the dew satiate your kiss
rise in gently scattered beams
fight the walls of fresh May green

fill your petal with some wine
hear the voices in the sky
lose your thorns in thisty ground
draw your love with all your might

sun has lost its shade for a while
hung in its most blessed time
don`t you lose the now and here
for remember the next day may be
another
and you`ll hardly find your charm
and you`ll hardly grasp your chance
or the rivers dry and you will die
another
and you`ve just few months to live
can you stand for what you lack
roses that don`t love are cut!
Track Name: Calm Narrow Street
calm narrow street
winds between the trees
endlessly
with a hundred houses
in one of them

time`s flowing on
leaves fall down from oaks
silently
into quiet gardens
in one of them

dear lovely girl showing her face to the sun
dear crystal eyes bringing the smiles to the sky
silent voice ringing louder than mine
is it only a dream
that she`ll give a smile to me

calm narrow street
runs just like a stream
endlessly

calm narrow street
prelude of heaven
Track Name: The Fresh Love
in a little house in the wood
under the twentieth sky
a new sun is set to rise

unless you pray
you`ll go insane
fresh love

flames in the sky - it`s all in vain
Eden on Earth - it`s all in vain
having been given wings it is yours to fly
love is a gift but it turns a gift in time

it`s known
it comes when it wants
it`s gone so

and soon it becomes
a reason of endless hurt
Track Name: Broken Line
you had so many ways, so many words
to give me
I had so much time to make the change
it`s over, what luck it`s not the end

walking over clouds
ignoring the sounds we make
we`re growing apart

sad it`s not a quarrel, I could scream
to survive
only frozen words, a fridge`s tail
bring silence driving both my ears insane

we`ve a road ahead
but I`m sure before we go
we have to take
some rest, it is just some fog
though it`s made of stone
when the time turns to love, we`ll carry on
we`ll carry on

we mustn`t end the chapter of our song
unrhymed
we must not forget the lake of sound
discovering a lump of pitch inside

walking over clouds
ignoring the sounds we make
we`ll fall apart
Track Name: Stay B Side
I love you
maybe you love me
I will never be too brave to ask
but if you only look around
all the flowers there are calling us

I`ll take you to places known only by me
tell you the things only I can explain
I`ll take you there, take you there
take you wherever you want but stay
stay beside

I know that many plenties-of
and many guys are waiting there for you
but if you only stayed you`d be
all the happier, it`s understood

I`d take you to places known only by me
tell you the things I`m so eager to say
I`ll take you there, take you there
take you wherever you want but stay
stay beside
Track Name: The Heart of the Sky
everything`s wrong in my part of the sky
now she is gone I`m so much behind
I am so week though it`s been just a month
and it rains

everything`s wrong up the ground
everything`s wrong down the sky
can anyone help me jump upside

as you can see there is nothing to fear
silence is strong and it helps the fear
it`s getting autumn
the spring seems a quite different dream

flowers are sour and apples are bland
shadow`s reborn round the traffic lights
mud on the kerb and the ice in the well
doing fine

what did they say of the heart of the sky
a fairy-tale of too eager minds
dying of cold do I seem to remember it shine
Track Name: The Wastes of Loneliness
I think about a place
in the city of my dreams
in the country of my hopes
that`s the place where she has gone

sunlight on the mountains shows her
picture in the sky
did she have to go away
why did she not want to stay

you cannot feel the way I do
`cos you`ve never seen the girl I have lost
and you`ll never count the holes that I`ve fallen in
since she`s gone

it was the time when I was a man of success
but she`s left for me
only wastes of loneliness

so though behind my window there`s a beautiful day
the sun`s shining high, the birds are flying low
inside of my room
there`s still a night of stone
since she`s gone

the words that she said still remain in my head
and still I feel these warm hands on my face
I`ve nowhere to go
and nobody to phone
since she`s gone

I don`t want to forget this girl
don`t want to find the next
so I can only walk across
my wastes of loneliness
Track Name: Song For the Her
please look at the stars, they`re all the same
just like all the faces in the rain
just like all the summer days
just like all the leaves in May
just like all the windy evening hours I cry
like billows in the sky
you and I

just like two halves of an hourglass
like two laughing eyes of a playing child
like two wings of a lightbound moth
like two sleeves of a warm coat
like two ventricles of some small loving heart
two zeroes in an eight

my beard is growing in the sun
your hair`s touched the ground, it looks for grass
in the lake the water`s getting warmer
the whole world`s waiting for us
and my laughter`s in the sky

like the first two verses of this song
like the vocal sliding on the chords
you and I... oh what for
all that I want you to know
all that I was trying to say is I still love
the time has come at last
for you and I
(another rhyme)
Track Name: Lovesick Schoolboy's Blues
there is one thing I always wanna tell you
there is one thing I always wanna say
I love you baby, you know I tell the truth
I always wanna stay in love with you

my heart is warm
it`s never gonna die
as long as you`re here
I`m never gonna cry
I love you baby, you know I tell the truth
I always wanna stay in love with you
Track Name: The Half of Way
scream of the wind, the flight in the sky
they`re the same
but it seems to me
there is something new

I was building a picture every lonely night
but I`ve found another brick
really I cannot complete
the dream I tasted on and on
it`s done, it`s ended
the way it has to be
the half of way

so I stand and I take a look back down the past
well it makes me sad to leave
the old way I used to drift
I was inside a golden cage
and life was flowing
the way it had to be
the half of way

how can it be
when solution comes I don`t think if I wonder what it brings
and if I touched the sun, I would feel nothing
`cos I don`t care
it`s hard to see a forest destroyed by worms
the same thing has happened to the roses on my window
getting dark but the black
is nothing
and I don`t care

I was trying to show you why my memorie`s lost
but I don`t think you should see
no one knows who`ll turn the wheel
the space that I looked for before
is gone forever
the way it has to be
the half of way

how can it be
when solution comes I don`t think if I wonder what it brings
and if I touched the sun, I would feel nothing
`cos I don`t care
Track Name: The Valley of Oblivion (Mellotron Version)
August morning came like unexpected rain
the sun was far behind the haze
birds were sitting on the tops of the greatest trees
they didn`t break that strange silence in the air

all the paintings in the sky they seemed to cry
for something ended and it would not come back
and there was just one way there left for me
to leave myself and to find

the valley of oblivion
inside the forests of time
that`s the place where the sun always shines
where you can clear your eyes your heart and your mind

go towards the waterfalls
go towards the streams of the brightness
and you will feel
that Love
is near

only two silver lines forgotten by old trains
decided to show me the way
in waiting for the wander`s end

leaves were dancing in the wind around my head
my feet fell often on the sand
all in all it`s not so hard to light the gloom
and change one`s ways for truth

the valley of oblivion
inside the forests of time
that`s the place where the sun always shines
where you can clear your eyes your heart and your mind
Track Name: This Is My Last Love Song For You
this is my last love song for you
I hoped it never would be true
but I have found somebody new
the fresh green fruit

this is my last love letter too
rejected aims that hide in gloom
just like the mazy road to get too

thank you for all the days I knew us as one
thank you for all the ways I felt it so sweetly

this is my last day lost for you
there is no use exploring gloom
even if dreams that don`t come true
don`t lose allure

this is my last love song for you
this is my last love song for you
this is my last love song for you
this is my last love song for you
you see I cannot find the words, it`s gone, now I - pause - you
Track Name: The Leave
remember all the days I was waking like a bird
swimming through your hair ready to kiss
your shade on the water
remember all the sings I was giving to you
stealing all your looks
just to get inside them there at dawn

you see I always loved you I always needed you
you didn`t care

remember all the months I was waiting for June
every little tune that I wrote to be closer to you
remember crazy eyes far-off face yearning mind
leaning on your lips seemingly throwing out only smiles

I`d give you everything I had
I`d find you every dream you lost

it`s hard to sing
but you broke my every little wing

I am asking you if it is fine to swim in this
the angel sinks
let the heart bleed
I am asking you if it is fine to take
the purple haze
let the mind ache

why do you keep it this way?
why did you follow the snake?
everything you do you won`t go back to real yourself
why are you killing your mind?
where did you fly?

you feel nothing
you are standing million smiles from your home
you feel nothing
you are standing million smiles
from your soul
as you knew long ago

can`t imagine how such a wise girl like you
could so easily find a surprise
in a mirror of swamp
American dream vanished outside the Doors
everything is closed no way home
such a bad actor`s role

you see I always loved you
I really needed you
but I must go
