Track Name: MindHeart
MindHeart

Mind is the dark
But the Heart is the light,
Mind's screaming: "No!"
But the Heart's whispering: "It just might ..."

Mind's all grown up
But the Heart is just a boy,
The former is smart
And the latter's still willing to toy.

And how could I not be afraid
Of these games that they play?
The Mind wants to leave
And the Heart wants to stay.
Oh, how could I not be afraid
Of these games that they play today?
The Mind wants to leave
But the Heart wants to stay.

Narrow-hearted mind and an open-minded heart ...

Once got together but soon fell apart
It was obvious right from the start
Mysterious like the Mona Lisa's smile
Mysterious like the Mona Lisa's eyes
Follow me around wherever I go
Cast a black shadow over my body and my soul
Mind is the snake and the Heart's a white dove
The Mind and the the Heart they're in love.

Mind is the dark
But the Heart is the light,
The former gives up
But the latter's still willing to fight.

Mind is the rain
And the Heart is the sun,
The rainbow is made
When the first one meets the second one.

And how could I not repent for the things I have done, oh my son?
Mind wants to stay, says the Heart will go on
Oh, how could I not repent, for the things I have done, my son?
Mind wants to stay, says the Heart will go on.

Narrow-hearted mind and an open-minded heart ...
Track Name: Hold Your Horses
Hold Your Horses

Early mornings - my altar of pain
Crying tears of blood, my love is still my chain.
In this clean cold chamber of breath
I smell of self-pity, I smell of death.
Come and revive me for I simply can't
See, I'm no God, what's more - I 'm not even a man.
Oh, I am broken, I used to be you
Once we were one, but now we are two.

"Hold your horses, trust me!" – said mom
"Sooner or later you'll have to slow down, my son..."
- Holding them horses isn't easy, oh mom
- I think they'll kick me off their saddles and run.
"What kind of horses are you riding, my son?"
- Mom, they are dangerous but they are also much fun, fun, fun
- Their skin is white and their eyes are so blue
- Someday I'll ride them home and show 'em to you ...

Love is patient, true love is kind/blind
It doesn't envy, doesn't boast, it isn't proud
It's not selfish, keeps no records of wrong
It's in the Bible and now in this song
And when you sing it remember me
Remember all the places that we never got to see
Oh no ...
Track Name: When I Wake Up Tomorrow
When I Wake Up Tomorrow


This is not the first song that I've written
And I sure hope it is not the last
I don't wanna write to the future
I don't wanna play to the past
I want to capture this moment
Of pain and fear and sorrow

For today is gonna be yesterday
When I wake up tomorrow.

Nothing, oh, nothing lasts forever
Not even the melody of this elegy
Minor will soon become major
Bound will soon become free
Night will soon become morrow

And today is gonna be yesterday
When I wake up tomorrow.

If I wake up tomorrow.
