Waiting for the sun to go down on the valley — Soon it will be time for the train to go away Never ever will miss that sound — Don´t want to miss it no more I just want inside my day that very short holiday Waiting for the sunrise alone in my bed — Waiting for the wild bear inside to wake up Don´t want to waste my hope — Don´t want to waste it no more Just want to stand up and sing the animal at the door I´m just a lonely wood worker — But as long as I´m good, I´m a good lover Just want to have my habits — Don´t want a four-star hotel Just want the sun to go down the train that´s ringing the bell

Anything that you like anything that you want me to do Anything that you like anything you want to show me too Everything that you´re like everything I will do — I fear I´m in love with you — I´m in love Anything that you show anywhere that you want me to go Everything that we share everything that we can let go Anything you prepare everything I will do — I´m ready for you I´m in love with you — I´m in love — I hope you love me too — I´m in love I´m in love again — For once I care about tomorrow

Nights along you make me strong — Before the light looking for a brand new heart A heart of gold an orphan mine — Too much time that I´ve waited Don´t be blind no use in cheating Used to get on well with times of trouble — Get on nice with times of rumble Felt good when the nights were dizzy — Felt bad when the girl was easy Felt lonely when the world was like me Monsoon long the river´s strong — But must we crawl looking for our indian soul? The banks have dried until godly knows: “Who gives time to the music Who is blind can get the lyrics — The girl is mine but the country´s a joystick One more run to catch the magic” Used to get on well with times of trouble — Get on nice with times of rumble Felt good when the nights were dizzy — Felt bad when the girl was easy Felt lonely when the world was like me

Sunday promise sunday song list — Every day feels like a baby-long-time fight a baby-long-time fight until the night Sunday profits monday jobless — The week in crisis is no good to be started For any worker man who works in chain — For any lonely woman who kills time Come on take the songs from my bones — Come on show me new directions We´ll play some music under the moon Sunday visit my woman comes with a plane — Her dress is fantastic forget about the plane Sunday sun is warm like love is — So when love is Sunday ’s a promise — Sunday ’s a profit Sunday ’s a promise — Sunday ’s a profit

Something there that I lose — Love gone in the air She cannot chose between her life and sweet and ours Her heart to go further Some new cycle of life — The chords sound right for my ear’s delight Between now and tomorrow — Change in sight Well I hope with my dreams — I smell some May breeze And I stand with minor keys — And I raise virtual kids I welcome well done bees Oh one day we throw our stone — And the water freezes our bones Oh so now I keep your stone — And I throw it towards our unfound home

I’m moving to town I’m hungry — Stood up with my crown so lovely The day that we had what a pity — I’m moving to town you’re crazy Oh someday we will have a country — The lines in the sky say you’re with me I’m moving to bed I’m hungry — Of you my babe my baby We sing through the night lights are softly — Rolling to your eyes endlessly I’m moving moving moving moving

Following a train — No way to get in Wanting a romance with the highlands of France I’m just caught in the winter snow — With the pouring rain I tried to call you friend I’m following a smile I once smelled in a bar — But she was the girl from nowhere I happened to be free — On a track by the sea Where the ocean turns into the pouring rain — I tried to call you, friend I got into the train — It was worth it at the end And I photographed my life with the mountains behind — The picture develops since then With the pouring rain — And the cement sand I can feel it bloom Ought to step into her room — Step into her room Step into her room — Room room ought to step into her room,....
