about

Through out the sleepless nights i wandered on this cloths of passion. Moving towards the sunset i painted many colours with that sweet little heart of yours. My footsteps murmur the will to go no matter what's to come. I don't feel bad, i don't feel sad, i just feel cosy in this velvet blue.

Track Name: Kind Of You
I didn't know what else to do
Thought i was just kind of blue.
I went through all the colours
Found only grey, what could i do?
I climbed up the rainbow and i realised
I was just feeling a kind of you.
Couldn't find you anywhere and so i wrote this song,
Couldn't see you in the moonlight,
Sugars please don't take too long.
Hug me in the sunset, make it red instead of blue
I was just feeling a kind of you...
I was just feeling...
I was just feeling a kind of you.
Track Name: Lovely You
Couldn't take your smile with me
Couldn't walk along with you,
Didn't live enough to see
All that lovely, lovely you.
I didn't wait enough to smell
The flower that lives in you,
Didn't live enough to dwell
In that lovely, lovely you.
Smiling under the moonlight
I think of you in every way,
But the perfect dream for me would be
To kiss you everyday.
Once i felt a bit alone
But only for a while,
Cause than i saw you sweet
With your lovely, lovely smile.
For a long time i thought:
How could i feel complete ?
And then i fell in love
With you, lovely, lovely sweet.
Smiling under the moonlight
I think of you in every way,
But the perfect dream for me would be
To kiss you everyday.
Track Name: No Time
I gotta grab that smile
That seems to hide from me.
I gotta see, see, the meaning
Of when you look at me.
I gotta find that sweet kiss
Promised by your lips,
Than i'll find myself
In time for loving you.
Found myself walking on my own
Going down this path of you
I followed all the sound and colours
So i could better understand you...
Got no time for loving you!
You gotta tell yourself
How deep your eyes can be,
So you can look to the world
And understand what you see
Don't let your hands get lost
In the emptiness of someone else's thoughts,
Or you can sink in time
And find yourself an empty loss.
Found myself walking on my own
Going down this path of you,
I followed all the sound and colours
So i could better understand you...
Got no time for loving you!
Got this red fire out of me...
Run to find a better blue...
This is not the place for me...
So i got no time for loving you!!!
Track Name: Fall In Love
I don't wanna cry again
The song that i once cried for you,
Cause once i gave you my heart
And you broke it into a million parts.
I don't wanna fall in love again
The way i fell in love with you,
Cause once i gave you my heart
And you broke it into a million parts,
Then what could i do?
I could blow my brain
Or i could go insane
But instead i stop and think of it
And i wonder: what's wrong with you?
As time passes by you
I ain't got new things to say,
Could see every you
But just wanted to fly away.
I don't wanna fall in love again
The way i fell in love with you,
Cause once i gave you my heart
And you broke it into a million parts,
Then what could i do?
I could blow my brain
Or i could go insane
But instead i stop and think of it
And i wonder: what's wrong with you?
Track Name: Changing Colors
Changing colours
I need a change
A chance to re-find me,
Changing colours
I need a change
So i can re-find me.
When i watch the sky,
Sometimes i realise
How deep is the blue.
Walking on colours
That change you
Is to find your own rainbow.
Painting feelings
With your eyes
Let's you spread your life,
When i watch the sunset
I feel that velvet red
Melting my icy blue.
Track Name: Midnight Blue
Sometimes i wish i was the sky
So i could see my reflection in your eyes.
Sometimes i wish i was the moon
So i could paint my midnight blue over you.
But being nor sky, nor moon
I could only pretend
That i believe i could mean something special
At the end... for you...
Track Name: She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not
Friday she loves me,
Saturday she loves me not,
Sunday she couldn't remember me
and on Monday she just forgot.
Tuesday i got a velvet kiss
Wednesday she loved me a lot,
But thursday and friday she wasn't sure
If she loved me or she loved me not,
So, does she love me or she loves me not?
Track Name: Picture Of Mine
Would you like to find a picture of mine
Hanging on the wall of an empty room?
Do you really try to find me
Or is just something i presume?
Would you walk in a town at night
Searching for an empty room,
Where the sun tries to shine
In that picture of mine?
Waiting for the hand to hold me,
Waiting for a good night kiss.
Can you remember all that
Or is it just something you missed?
Would you walk in a town at night
Searching for an empty room,
Where the sun tries to shine
In that picture of mine?
Track Name: Thinking Of You
For just a brief moment
I thought i could have been someone else.
For just a brief moment
i thought i could have been someone else.
Baby, than i realised
I was thinking of you!
For just a brief moment
I thought i could have loved someone else.
For just a brief moment
I thought i could have loved someone else.
Baby, than i realised
There was no one but you.
I was thinking of you.
I could have loved anyone
But you told me that i was the one,
So i painted your colour on me
There was no one my heart could see...
no one but you..
I was thinking of you!!!
And then, at the end, you say i'm sweet...
but not enough...
Track Name: The Sweetness Of Your Heart
The sweetness of your heart
Made me start
Loving you...
The sweetness of your smile
Made me happy for a while ...
When you're in my arms
There is no colour blue,
I see the sunset in you...
When you're in my arms
I feel the world apart
With the sweetness of your heart.
The sweetness of your kiss
Made me miss
Lonely times...
It's tender in your eyes
That feeds the rainbow of mine...
When you're in my arms
There is no colour blue,
I see the sunset in you...
When you're in my arms
I feel the world apart,
With the sweetness of your heart.
