about

There's always music playing in my head, so I decided to write it down and make up an album. "Higher" is an autobiographical piece about recent years of my life.

Track Name: Ice Queen
Crystal shining sparkling beauty,
No one ever bothered you.
Is it right or is it wrong?
Never. Ever. Anyone.

Tick-tock, shining beauty,
Icy eyes and feelings muted.
Is it wrong or is it right?
Ready, set, fight!

Crystal, shining,
Crystal, shining,
Heeeyaaah.
Is it wrong
Or is it right?
Is it?
Is it?
Is it?
Track Name: Higher
You took me higher,
Where my darkest fears came alive.
All I have lost in my time,
All I've denied,
All the feelings that would never be mine.

It was a perfect desire,
Only wish to fly higher and higher and higher.

Higher
I have never felt so alone,
So insecure and so tired,
Losing myself, leaving behind all my life,
Learning to fly.

It was the fire that was burning my wings
When getting higher and higher and higher.

Higher and higher and higher and higher
and higher and higher than life

You took me higher and higher and higher and higher
and higher and higher than time.
Track Name: Under The Hills
It's coming from within
Feeling like world is lying at your feet,
But it is indeed.

Here your path begins:
Fear and courage, shivers down the spine.
You just can't deny.

Find your way
By the rivers, over, under the hills.
Never stay,
Never look behind and never give up.
Far away
You will find or maybe not
What you're looking for,
Merry wanderer.

Know your way
When you fight to death or run for your life,
When you're joyful
Or suffering like never before.
It's a matter of time
Are you ever dead or alive
For you take yourself with you
Wherever you go.

Do you remember how
You tried to hear the calling of the road,
Music of the world?

Your heart is singing now.
It is a perfect time to cross the line,
Come and shine!

Find your way
By the rivers, over, under the hills.
Never stay,
Never look behind and never give up.
Far away
You will find or maybe not
What you're looking for,
You merry wanderer.

Know your way
When you fly above or take a deep dive,
When you're joyful
Or suffering like never before.
It's a matter of time
Are you ever dead or alive,
For you take yourself with you
Wherever you go.

Find your way
By the rivers, over, under the hills.
Never stay,
Never look behind and never give up.
Far away
You will find or maybe not
What you're looking for,
Merry wanderer.

Know your way
When you fight to death or run for your life,
When you're joyful
Or suffering like never before.
It's a matter of time
Are you ever dead or alive,
For you take yourself with you
Wherever you go.
Track Name: Paper Wings Samba (bonus track)
For years I seemed
To be aware about
The tools and the skills I needed to go on.

My life was a dream
And I was dreaming out loud
To make the entire world do what I want.

I made it wrong on and on
I never learned from my mistakes
The more I believed
The more I failed it, though

I will never give up,
Continue doing what it takes
Even if I don't know
Where I am heading to.

Trying to put off pinky glasses
I'm feeling like a blinded,
Heavy-minded

I used to lose what I love
And to leave it all behind me
Spreading my paper wings
(Spread my wings and fly
towards another rainbow's end)

I used to explain
The things I had to reveal
As I was in love with rationality.

I struggled in vain
'Cause it was never a deal
If it didn't match with my reality

I made it wrong on and on
I never learned from my mistakes
The more I believed
The more I failed it, though

I will never give up,
Continue doing what it takes
Even if I don't know
Where I am heading to.

Trying to put off pinky glasses
I'm feeling like a blinded,
Heavy-minded

I used to lose what I love
And to leave it all behind me
Spreading my paper wings
(Spread my wings and fly
towards another rainbow's end)
