Track Name: Confess, My Love, Confess...
Confess, my love, confess
Get these words out of your chest
As your horses speed their pace
As you gun down mine

Confess, my love, confess
Get these words out of your chest
You staggered down an awkward phrase
With your mouth half shut

Could I sneak another kiss
A thief to snatch the captain's daughter
A kiss to show itself the door
before your eyes would open

Confess, my love, confess
When people change they're changing fast
But then you keep on coming back
Making sure your servant’s lacerated back
Still keeps a spine with many drawers
For all your knives, for all the times, for all your godly force
For all your spoons and forks.

Could I sneak another kiss
A thief to snatch the captain's daughter
A kiss to show itself the door
before your eyes would open

Yet,
Words
Remain unspoken.

Confess, my love, confess…
Track Name: Tonight She Takes Berlin
Selling all her dreams to the lowest bidder
Her kingdom for a beer she can't pronounce its name
Jazzy, smoky cellars where the tastes are all so bitter
Bitte schön, auf wiedersehen - she's missing out her last train

Before the clock strikes midnight
Theses stiletto heels will win
She knows there is a high road but
Tonight, she takes berlin
Track Name: Summersong
A year ago
there was a war
but I wrote poems
about my lover
there was no sign
from my own brother
the only rings were the alarms

I never cared about the bombs
because I was already hiding
what good is art for prayers reciting?
No underwritings for bullets biting

when you kept asking
what was I thinking
I said I'm looking at the stars
you thought the skies
were so romantic
while I was calculating miles
while I was calculating limits

while I was calculating lies
to keep you with me
to keep you with me
it's boiling hot in that disguise

the frequent flyer
in star alliance
has more importance
than dying orphans

where we come from
it's always summer
where we come from
it's always red
Track Name: Turtle Doves
Her mother said she’s not allowed
to put his fingers in her mouth,
but she did.

She was unhappy twenty years,
he dried her spit and drained her tears,
he promised he’d never leave.

And when he said “I love you girl”
he grabbed her wrists and pulled her hair,
and said she’s one of a kind.

And then he used her broken heart
to cut her in her deepest parts
and claimed “your last breath is mine”.

Girls that age should not talk to boys
and mothers are always right,
beneath a wall of tender pillows
there lies the sharpest knife.

He wrote his father all is well
he can’t afford to call from hell
and the operators in French.

He bought her rings with plastic pearls,
expensive rooms in cheap motels
but she never really asked for much.

They were together for a month
she always said she wants to dance
He left the room with trembling hands…

He couldn’t bear to see her eyes,
they showed reflections of a child
that just became a man.

Girls that age should not talk to boys
and mothers are always right,
beneath a wall of tender pillows
there lies the sharpest knife.
