Track Name: Free to Be Free
As if I'm in hospital pajamas
In a limbo, in coma
In asleep panorama
Ma, give me a banana
To try to fly

Lost Cinderella in parallel universe
Where things got a longer wave-length
Rhythm's up, flashing dancing disco stars
In March near to Mars
On the notes of an Australian bagpipes
Playing by a Scottish kangaroo type
But in the middle of good and evil
There's what's medieval

Someone says, anyway
Someday...

Even in outer space love never changes
With it the sun has its generations to save
The little man still looking for no way out right
Inside the lift up to the sweet paradise

Someone says, anyway
Someday...

CHORUS
I'll be free to be free

Relatives at the safety glass weep
While I sleep seemingly placidly
I'm gonna eat the soup another day
Just want some music to put on the jukebox case
Let me alone with nothing more
But increase the dose of the oxygenator
Nurse, call a certain doc. Spunky in reanimation
In a minute I'll have found my dimension

Down a path as lights
Someday clouds will shine
Underneath my sky...

CHORUS x2
Track Name: Night Ain't Over
I walked through darkness and turned back
For fear of being tracked
Here comes the bell that says it's twelve
With a washing smell, I’ll be myself

Already along the first meters of my road
No I cannot make it on my own

The same people spied around but nothing they found
Steps or leaves’ swish, the few sounds
With dim lights of a burial ground
And also shots and shouts

I understand what you’re afraid of
No I can’t, I run away, love

CHORUS
We can get all the way, together
The night ain’t over, not over
It's not over

You’re making troubles before the start
Of something your heart doesn’t know where it’ll lead you last
Haunted by an unbroken snarl
In your head every second with the past

Idealization is my way
To take imperfections you ain’t

CHORUS
...

CHORUS
We can get all the way, together
The night ain’t over, not over
Now I go back home
But over there is my road

Your eyes so green
Why do they stay behind a tree?
Oh let me see right in
No do not play hide and seek
Track Name: The Isle That There Ain't
The isle that there ain’t
Where funk is lullaby
Where a bill is toilet paper
Where being a baby 's to get high

The isle that there ain’t
Where love’s a babies’ toy
Where cities are on big flowers
Where there’s no mum whose name is Lois

The isle that there ain’t
Where every thought’s a dream
Where hands got little fingers
Where growing old breaks your wings

Grown-ups aren’t there
In the isle that there ain’t
Where you get engaged on your first date

CHORUS
Remember today
Learn your part to turn to puppet
Respect the men who're in toilet
Do your homework snotty kid
And your career won’t be on skids
Swim until you got the gills
Be riding high using the keel
Hook jolts for ticking clock
Cap, the alligator is gonna dock

The isle that there ain’t
Where a bill is smelly trash
Where babies are born with kisses
Where growing up is to crash

The isle that there ain’t
Where a breath is a sigh
Where storks still come to visit
And it’s never moment for bye-byes

No, time isn’t there
In the isle that there ain’t
'Cause if you get aged this is not your place

CHORUS
Remember today
Eat your fillet steak, deckhand
Pretend respect from all your friends
Be a doctor, ultra-rich
And everything’s going properly
Swim until you got the gills
Be riding high using the keel
Hook jolts for ticking clock
Cap, the alligator is gonna dock
Tick tock

Don’t forget
Have a belt for every trousers
What matters is your centimeters
Money…no, I want honey

The isle that there ain’t
Where fantasy's in your mind
'Cause you can fly only if you’re a child
Track Name: Tilly Came Back...
Sometimes everything gives way in any day
Something happens that instead ain't
As if anybody mined what drives
To dream and romantically idealize
Words unfortunately are true
And besides you also pass me through
You couldn't and can't picture an affair
With another girl, another

CHORUS
Now you're free with no regrets
Distant, some from others
Love does be and that's that
You two were, dear friends

For her sake you've said and done
What you had to and was just
Letting go to find somebody here
Who can't love as you did these years
With all she knows might be a sister
Not a simple lover, this never
And you'll remember in your life
Maybe like a bittersweet goodbye

CHORUS

If you please I need to believe
In what you still mean for me
Track Name: Be Into a Nightmare
Maybe one day you’ll ask me
About my childhood dreams
And standing as frozen, still
I confess, I will

Figures weren’t deformed instead
But behaved like were dead
Pleasant, twisted stories where
Teachers killed your loved school friends

I often couldn’t walk
Flattened myself against the wall
I didn’t shout at all
Everything was further on imagination

CHORUS
The good of nightmares is that they’re not real
But if you cannot forget them
Open eyes won’t stop the fear

What I saw wasn’t only dark
Try imagining a cellar
With a coming breath, then a painful skull
Suddenly staring at ya

Or think of an afternoon
A garden where the night came soon
Leaving emptiness out from you
Keeping powerless your balloons

CHORUS
...

Thank goodness, nightmares don’t get all together real
'Cause you would stay forever scratched
If we didn't learn our fears

Wake up love, don’t worry it’s me
All is gone away from this
A story of giants, jealousy
If you don’t want don’t tell me anything
When you slide low, granny sits
Hold your pillow, little light lit
Cry on, all your tears
I waggle, call, I know it’s weird

Wake up love, don’t worry it’s me
All is gone away from here
A story of forests, jealousy
If you don’t want don’t tell me anything
When you slide low, granny reads
Hold your pillow, little light lit
My shoulder to cry on, all your tears
Home, home, I know it’s weird
Track Name: Petals Floating
I’d like to hug you in my arms
To see you sleeping on my heart
To smooth hair and fondle skin
And kiss it when you almost dream
To write your name everywhere
In your secrets on the sand
To hold your hand when you walk
When you make love and talk
I wish I always knew
What to tell you

Never stopped to console
Touched yours with my nose
Smelt you until overdose of scent
If it's the end to which I'm meant
It's you, it's you
Who I would want to...

CHORUS
Come with me far but don't whisper too fast
On the water we...

I’d like to chase you on the shore
To cuddle you when out it's cold
To bite to feel you are with me
For being in you like you in me
To neither wish a falling star
Nothing more than what I'd have
To celebrate our anniversary
And declare my love planetary
Or only to you
Who I would want to...

CHORUS
Come with me far but don't whisper too fast
On the water we...
Sea now is calm and a shining wharf follows us
On the water we...

Lord please, don't wake up me

Oh my love, dance but don't drop rocks
'Cause the water is
Soft, not for words, silence is gold
On the water we...

Petals floating
