    Canticle

    Behold, thou art fair, my love, thou art fair
    Thou hast doves eyes within thy locks
    Thy hair is as a flock of goats
    that appear from mount Gilead

    Thou art beatiful, o my love, as Tirzah,
    comely as Jerusalem,
    terrible as an army with banners
    Thy hair is as a flock of goats that appear from Gilead

    Thou art all fair, my love,
    there is no spot in thee
    A garden inclosed is my sister, my spose,
    A spring shut up, a fountain sealed

    Thou art beatiful, o my love, as Tirzah,
    comely as Jerusalem,
    terrible as an army with banners
    Thy hair is as a flock of goats that appear from Gilead

    I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem,
    That ye stir not up,
    nor awake my love,
    Until she please…

    Thou art all fair, my love,
    there is no spot in thee
    A garden inclosed is my sister, my spose,
    A spring shut up, a fountain sealed

    Rules

    Stucked in traffic I see colours
    Terryfing me
    Hearing voices of this cold war
    Makes me so angry

    Even if you resemble me a bit
    We are not the same
    But what we have in common is
    A nature to change

    You don’t have to force your eyes to
    Look into the darkness

    You may choose the way you want to
    Live, you have got this chance

    Just open your mind
    Make up your mind

    Listen to the wind from Eastern Side
    That wishpers the Truth
    Find a power in saing good-bye to
    Your egoistic rules

    You don’t have to force your eyes to
    Look into the darkness

    You may choose the way you want to
    Live, you have got this chance

    You don’t have to force your eyes to
    Look into the darkness

    Just open your mind

    Look around

    In tenderness of your fingers
    I forget my existence
    I’m loosing myself
    In multitude of your hair
    I guess our bodies are
    too warm too fragile
    To fly over there
    where once we were born

    So we are here
    Meant for the life we’re living
    Now I understood why
    We’ve been given joy and pain.
    No suffering in vain.
    I found the moment
    To experience in Time –
    -I look around

    Look around
    We’ve got so much
    to find Look around

    So we are here
    Meant for the life we’re living
    Now I understood why
    We’ve been given joy and pain.
    No suffering in vain.
    I found the moment
    To experience in Time –
    -I look around

    Look around
    We’ve got so much
    to find Look around

    Tirzah

    In struggle

    Come what may

    Our long travel home
    I’m taking you with me
    Cross the deserts of emotions
    Through their rough seas

    I feel the light transcends me
    And I know where to go
    I want to see in your eyes
    That you are ready to follow

    Come what may let yourself
    Open for the sky
    Wash away who you think you are
    I know we’ll survive

    Are you ready to follow?

    Come what may let yourself
    Open for the sky
    Wash away who you think you are
    I know we’ll survive

    The moment

    Even though there were no You
    beside me
    I learned how to breath with such a
    space around

    But now
    Just stay
    The air sounds symphony
    Stay
    Than would be easier to search for
    the Light

    As I followed on my own the deep paths
    on the shore
    I experienced trust in the sand
    And I could go

    But now
    Just stay
    The air sounds symphony
    Stay
    Than would be easier to search for
    the Light

    But this time
    Stay

    Wind from the east

    The day after

    I hide my shame
    behind the silence
    Flashbacks from those days
    Are so distant, so odd…
    The riddle got solved
    I even don’t know how
    But it doesn’t really matter now…

    I look straight into your eyes
    You make me realize
    There’s no need to turn back
    In mistic love we share

    I drove all night to get to you
    In my dreams I see you awaiting
    I pass your gate,
    I open your door
    I find you sleeping,
    Awake

    I look straight into your eyes
    You make me realize
    There’s no need to turn back
    In mistic love we share
