Modern Plays 03:52
Love, come and then go Kick in my door Lie on the floor Sing me a song Tell me a lie Be here and then gone Oh, tell me you will Wait here for me To calm my mind You better decide to stay Stay You can come and then go Leave with the morning sun Rehearse your modern plays Get lost, but don’t run It’s a lot to take When two hearts are apart Awake and nothing can be done Awake and not And if all hope fades And in time I might recover From these wounds Oh, if all else fails Can you put on that black dress And swoon me again, again Again, again You can come and then go Leave with the morning sun Rehearse your modern plays Get lost, but don’t run You can come and then go I won’t make it alone I’ll just drink up your wine No wild horse left to ride No truth in these lies Oh, come and then go

Then you burst And pour yourself into the wind You’ve waited and waited And now you spin Oh, the rivers And water on your face I knew longing But yours is a higher pace So I fall and pray World, stop turning For another day I knew love The kind not too hard to replace The ghosts in my backyard My fire was wasted Oh, I shiver Calling back your taste I knew winning But now it’s a different race So I fall and pray World, stop turning For another, another day Oh lover, I hear you cry Oh lover, I hear you cry I fall and spin I fall I fall (oh lover) And spin (I hear you cry)

The Teacher 05:07
She wanted to go out And travel the world by herself She told me when I sat beside her “Prepare for a fight!” So I taught her to lie I taught her to lie I taught her to lie When I traveled the world I had learned There are little things worse Than giving up on your wantings So I taught her to rise I taught her to rise And stepping on stones In the dust coloured roads Was an act of joy to her Then she broke a leg And fell on her knees And I carried her to St. West And I taught her to dream I taught her to dream I taught her to dream Then she fell asleep Peacefully smiling in bliss I held her in my arms And when she woke up She denied getting kissed So I taught her to leave I taught her to leave I taught her to leave I gave her the tools For the road, for the sky For the sea, for the hills And the nights I taught her to dream And always be free And flee from emptiness I taught her to dream

I stand here in linen and cord You’re all feathered up Sheddin’ out all the memories Of your ways to the top As you beg for attention And money and fame I tell you I’ve been there There’s nothing to gain I tell you I’ve been there And now I’m insane And John and Lorraine claim Elaine is to blame And all I need Is a change of heart And all I need Is a change of heart My friends, I tell you There’s really no lord left to fear The heretic kings of the past Were never our peers I’ll write a concert in days You’ll think it took me a year Well, it’s never just a matter of time In times of need, my dear Depraved simulations Of life and art It’s a great deal of work Like another new war Now go, free the pawns Send home the guards Your call to repentance Is my call to arms And all you need Is a change of heart And all you need Is a change of heart To all the whirred and worried Pause to make amends For all the gold and glory Has torn and crippled your hands Love, love, love, oh oh oh oh Love, love, love, oh oh oh oh Love, love, love, oh oh oh oh Love, love, love, oh oh oh oh And all you need Is a change of heart And all you need Is a little love And all you need Is a brand new car And all you need Is to leave it all Leave it it all Leave it it all Leave it it all

In My Wake 04:04
In my wake you run From all that I feed you From all that you feel now From all that I fear And in my wake you turn Curled up like a baby In my wake all is loose All is loose Stones from the sky, love Look how they’re all passing by This is not who we are, love This is not who we are And there’s always love And there is all this desire And there is always grace And there are all these stones Stones from the sky, love And they’re all passing by This is not who we are, love This is not who we are, oh no And in my wake we’re naked And in my wake we dream And we are not who we are, love We are not who we are We are not who we are, love We are not who we are We are not who we are, love We are not who we are We are not who we are, love We are not who we are We are not who we are, love We are

Come Monkey 03:20
Come monkey, come walk with me I know, I know, you’re slow I’ll carry you, I’ll carry you I know, I know, I know where to go Two sides at war Fighting over The right way to love I want it all A soldier on both sides I shoot and I fall Come monkey, come walk with me I know, I know, you’re slow I’ll carry you, I’ll carry you I know, I know, I know where to go Both feet on the ground A fool in love Looks for rules in love I know It goes round and round And round and round And round and round and Come monkey, come walk with me I know, I know, you’re slow I’ll carry you, I’ll carry you I know, I know, I know Come monkey, come walk with me I know, I know, I’m slow You carry me, you carry me You know, you know, you know It goes round and round And round and round And round and round And round and round And round and round And round and round And round and round And round and round And

Look at us now How we bind and heal our wounds How we watch each other fold And go home We broke it all Broke the rules We broke our bones, oh no With sticks and stones Oh, what have we done, my friend How far did we go Oh, what’s going on, my friend Did we lose it all, did we We could cry Scream from the top of our lungs We could rest and then shake off All the weight we’ve learned Belonged to us We could burn Burn it all We could heal and breathe And live and learn to take the fall Oh, what have we done, my friend How far did we go Oh, what’s going on, my friend Did we lose it all, did we Break all you’ve learned about yourself You’ve learned about yourself It was never you, never you, never, oh Break all you’ve learned about yourself You’ve learned about yourself It was never you, no Oh, what, how far Did we lose it all, did we Oh, what, how far Did we lose it all, did we We broke it all Broke the rules We broke our bones, oh no With sticks and stones

Please be for me What I can’t be for you Paint me a room With a hammock for two And come when I tell you to come Let everything go And run, faster now Make me feel slower than slow Oh, I could free you From the pressure of pleasing me From the labour of loving me Just give me time Give me time Give me time Give me time, give me Love will help Love will heal Love will help Love will heal Child, let go, you’re not alone Boy, no need to fight, you’re enough Man, give up, it’s not your fault, no You’re loved Child, let go, you’re not alone Girl, no need to prove, you’re enough Woman, there’s no fault here You’re loved You’re not alone And you are enough This is not your fault And you are loved You’re not alone And you are enough This is not your fault And you are loved Love, let go, you’re not alone No need to fight, you’re enough (These are the parts) You’re loved (These are the parts) Love, let go, you’re not alone No need to fight, you’re enough (These are the parts) You’re loved (These are the parts) You’re not alone (These are the parts) You’re loved (These are the parts) You’re not alone You’re loved You’re not alone You’re loved You’re not alone You’re love Love

about

This album, to me, is the journey
from the first wound to healing,
painted with music and lyrics.

Written from 2010 to 2017, between life as a hitchhiking busker
in the streets of Europe and chasing the sound, I have recorded
and produced these eight songs in autumn and winter 2016/17,
mostly in my Berlin bedroom-studio, with the idea to create
something that feels close to what happens live on stage.
