Track Name: Life
Life is a magical box of surprises
a train that you never know where it stops
the butterflies all across the sky

There is a star that shines every night
there is a light that never goes out
and there’s a life where all your dreams can be true

THIS IS THE POWER OF SOMETHING YOU COULD UNDERSTAND
IF YOU SMILED IN A BEAUTIFUL MORNING
IF YOU STARED AT THE SKY AND THE SUN
THIS IS A MAGICAL MYSTERY TUNE IN THE AIR
A WONDERFUL BAND ON THE STAGE
PLAYING YOUR FAVOURITE SONG, A SONG ABOUT LIFE

A summer of festivals, winter of gigs
together we run through an ocean of sounds
these are the things that make me feel alive

A SONG ABOUT LIFE... A SONG ABOUT LIFE... A SONG ABOUT LIFE
Track Name: Flying together
DO I DESERVE A CHANCE? DO I DESERVE A PLACE IN YOUR HEART?
FLYING TOGETHER, GETTING AWAY...

Missed calls on my phone, I can feel the killing moon
and it reminds me of you, now you’re alone
and I can’t help thinking of you all the time...
Please, take me with you, so many places
I’d like to go and I’ll take you with me,
everything is so amazing

DO I DESERVE A CHANCE? DO I DESERVE A PLACE IN YOUR HEART?
FLYING TOGETHER, GETTING AWAY, GOING TO AS MANY COUNTRIES
AS BIG AS OUR LOVE, AS BIG AS OUR TIME
AS BIG AS THIS BEAUTIFUL MOMENT BETWEEN YOU AND ME

I’m looking at you, even if you’re miles away, I feel you’re close
and I can see your smile, I could spend a million hours talking to you


DO I DESERVE A CHANCE? DO I DESERVE A PLACE IN YOUR HEART?
WILL I SEE YOU SOON? SHOULD I FIND A NAME FOR OUR LOVE?
FLYING TOGETHER, GETTING AWAY...

DO I DESERVE A CHANCE? DO I DESERVE A PLACE IN YOUR HEART?
FLYING TOGETHER, GETTING AWAY...
FLYING ACROSS THE OCEAN, FLYING ACROSS THE SKY...
Track Name: Everything
Let me take you to a secret city in a secret place
now you only need to close your eyes, smile and fly away
Forget last night, enjoy the day

I’m just looking for a better world, it could be just this one
Let me take you to the secret land where everything’s alright
Forget last night, enjoy the day

NOTICE THAT EVERYTHING YOU DO IS BRIGHTER NOW
NOTICE THAT EVERYTHING YOU SAY IS GOLDEN POETRY
HOW FAR WE WERE (HOW FAR WE WERE)
HOW CLOSE WE ARE (HOW CLOSE WE ARE)

I’m afraid I won’t have anything as beautiful as you
and perhaps this is the only chance I will ever have
Forget last night, enjoy the day

NOTICE THAT EVERYTHING YOU DO IS BRIGHTER NOW
NOTICE THAT EVERYTHING YOU SAY IS GOLDEN POETRY

NOTICE THAT EVERYTHING YOU DO IS BRIGHTER NOW
NOTICE THAT EVERYTHING YOU SAY IS GOLDEN POETRY
HOW FAR WE WERE (HOW FAR WE WERE)
HOW CLOSE WE ARE (HOW CLOSE WE ARE)
Track Name: Come and see
Come and see it’s beautiful, it’s not so far away from you
Can’t you feel it’s so wonderful, It’s all in your mind,
it’s as magical as life itself

AND LIFE IS SOMETIMES LIKE A LAKE
WHERE ALL THE THINGS REFLECT, CAN’T YOU SEE AND FORGET?
AND LIFE IS JUST A BUBBLE-GUM
QUITE ELASTIC AND FUN, IF YOU LIVE IN YOUR DREAMS

Come and see the twilight where the seagulls fly and rivers flow
Realise that paradise can be black or white,
can be right or wrong, it’s up to you

(CHORUS)

And it’s so easy but you cannot understand
and it’s so crazy, but crazy things are sometimes
just the funniest things to me

(CHORUS x 2)
Track Name: For a star
I can’t hear what you’re saying,
I can’t see where you hide
I don’t want to play that stupid game

I’M AFRAID I’M LOOKING FOR A BETTER OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE YOU DANCE
I’M AFRAID I’M WAITING FOR A NIGHT IN THE COUNTRY FULL OF LIGHTS
FOREVER AND EVER THE STARS ARE BRIGHTER TONIGHT
FOREVER AND EVER I WILL TAKE THEM IN MY HANDS

I can guess when you’re behind me,
I can freeze when you’re around
Now I want to see you belong to me
Waves are dying in the shore,
birds are flying far away
where do they go? where did you go?

I’M AFRAID I’M LOOKING FOR A BETTER OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE YOU DANCE
I’M AFRAID I’M WAITING FOR A NIGHT IN THE COUNTRY FULL OF LIGHTS
FOREVER AND EVER THE STARS ARE BRIGHTER TONIGHT
FOREVER AND EVER I WILL TAKE THEM IN MY HANDS

I don’t care about the morning,
I don’t care about the dawn
I don’t want to play that stupid game
I can hear what you’re saying,
I can see where you hide
I just want to play your stupid game
Track Name: Don't think twice
DON’T THINK TWICE

Nothing to do, nowhere to go tonight,
another horror film
it follows you, but you don’t realise...
you can’t get rid of it

...and if it’s you, your fears dressed in blue
and then it’s fine, today your dreams will shine

Having wine on a Saturday night
with some friends around
a killing moon on a lovely sky
shining all night long

...and if it’s you, your fears dressed in blue
and then it’s fine, today your dreams will shine
...and if it’s you, your tears dressed in blue
and then it’s fine, today the sun will shine

DON’T THINK TWICE, IT’S YOUR TIME
JUST DECIDE, IT’S YOUR LIFE
MAKE UP YOUR MIND
DON’T THINK TWICE, DON’T THINK TWICE

Tired of doing the same old things,
but you seem to have fun
tired of your ordinary days?
get yourself a chance

...and if it’s you, your fears dressed in blue
and then it’s fine, today your dreams will shine

Thinking of making up your mind,
that’s not easy when you try
It’s the way you can change your life
into something beautiful

DON’T THINK TWICE, IT’S YOUR TIME
JUST DECIDE, IT’S YOUR LIFE
MAKE UP YOUR MIND
DON’T THINK TWICE, DON’T THINK TWICE
Track Name: Our time is over
This is the end of something,
something that I never thought I’d see
why did it happen? why did we allow them to be like this?
what do you think of? now these times need a change

How can we still believe the ones
that stole our money and our dreams?
why don’t we fight the ones
that grabbed our votes with promises and lies?
what do you think of? now that everything is done

WHAT CAN WE DO IF OUR TIME IS OVER
YOU KNOW IT’S TRUE, AND OUR TIME IS OVER
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF?
WHAT CAN WE DO NOW THAT IT’S DONE?

Is this the end or just the start of something really beautiful
All we can do is trying
to reset the things we dreamt someday
start over again... today!
pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa... pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa...
pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa-pa... pa-pa-pa-pa...

WHERE CAN WE GO?
WHAT CAN WE DO IF OUR TIME IS OVER
YOU KNOW IT’S TRUE, AND OUR TIME IS OVER
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF?
WHAT CAN WE DO NOW THAT IT’S DONE?

WHERE CAN WE GO?
WHAT CAN WE DO IF OUR TIME IS OVER
YOU KNOW IT’S TRUE, AND OUR TIME IS OVER
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF? WHY DO YOU MIND?
WHAT’S YOUR OPINION NOW THAT IT’S DONE?
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF? WHY DO YOU MIND?
WHAT CAN WE DO NOW THAT IT’S DONE?
Track Name: The urban cyclist
How lucky... how lucky you could be
how long... how long does it take?
All the distance left seems so far away from here

How much... how much did you have to pay?
why... why did you choose this way?
All the things you miss, all the things you see
all the way you do riding for a dream... for a dream

IN THE MORNING YOU START TO RIDE
AND THE SUNSHINE WILL LEAD YOUR EYES
IN THE EVENING YOU KEEP ON TRYING TO ARRIVE ON TIME
AND YOU LEAVE ALL YOUR STUFF BEHIND
WHILE YOU WAIT FOR A BETTER TIME
BUT YOU SUDDENLY REALISE THAT THE DAY IS DYING

How lonely... how lonely this could be
how sorry... how sorry you can feel
All the things you miss, all the things you see
all the way you do riding for a dream... for a dream

IN THE MORNING YOU START TO RIDE
AND THE SUNSHINE WILL LEAD YOUR EYES
IN THE EVENING YOU KEEP ON TRYING TO ARRIVE ON TIME
AND YOU LEAVE ALL YOUR STUFF BEHIND
WHILE YOU WAIT FOR A BETTER TIME
BUT YOU SUDDENLY REALISE THAT THE DAY IS DYING

IN THE MORNING YOU START TO RIDE
AND THE SUNSHINE WILL LEAD YOUR EYES
IN THE EVENING YOU KEEP ON TRYING TO ARRIVE ON TIME
AND YOU LEAVE ALL YOUR STUFF BEHIND
WHILE YOU WAIT FOR A BETTER TIME
BUT YOU SUDDENLY REALISE THAT THE DAY IS DYING

...AND YOU LEAVE ALL YOUR STUFF BEHIND
WHILE YOU WAIT FOR A BETTER TIME
BUT YOU SUDDENLY REALISE THAT THE DAY IS DYING
Track Name: Back again
Mr. Sand is back again, Mrs. Sea misses him
Winter’s long and they are so alone
Summer’s been a lovely season, people lying under the sun
and they have been so happy all the time
the clear skies, the holidays,
the lazy days and Summer passed away

MR. SAND AND MRS. SEA ARE BACK AGAIN WITH YOU AND ME
MR. SAND AND MRS. SEA ARE BACK AGAIN,
AND THEY’RE STILL SO HAPPY

And now the beach left them alone,
the weather on the coast was worse
Autumn came, Winter’s bound to arrive
Now the things have changed a bit, loneliness is back again
but Mr. Sand and Mrs. Sea remain
Their love’s strong, it’s never gone,
they’re back again with you and me

MR. SAND AND MRS. SEA ARE BACK AGAIN WITH YOU AND ME
MR. SAND AND MRS. SEA ARE BACK AGAIN,
AND THEY’RE STILL SO HAPPY
THEY’RE BACK AGAIN AND THEY’RE STILL SO HAPPY
