Take The Time

Take the time before it takes you
Play the game and never cheat
Say I love you with a smile
To the ones you can’t forget

Take the time before it takes you
Sing aloud and keep the beat
Say I love you, make it ring
And they’ll sing with you, I bet

Take the time before it takes you
To the ones you’ll never meet
Say I love you once again
And your time you won’t regret.

In another life

Next time we’ll be
Eternal lovers
Twin stars tied
By mutual gravity

Maybe we’ll love
Like mother and son
Or get old together
Friends in our souls

Is it your eyes
I’ll come across
A one second stumble
Into a timeless fall

Maybe next time
Means nothing at all
But I’ll dare to dream
Of a world of our own.

Keep on

Keep on smiling at me
Make them jealous about
This halo around us

Keep on holding my hand
Let them dream about
Our warmest embrace

Keep on whispering to me
And they’ll wonder about
The secrets that we share

Keep on feeling with me
The feeling that makes us
So deliciously ordinary.

Summers

Hot air, sand under my feet
Feels like the first time
I can barely remember
The small house lying by the sea

Shadows in black and white
Pulsing light of my night
Dad is waiting awake
For a small and huge leap

One day I will understand
But let me sleep for now
One day I will rewind
And watch those shining men walk

And I’ll listen to that song
The one I knew by heart
The one that made me sing
In a way that made you laugh

And I’ll enjoy melancholy
Of summers faded away
And a young father’s smiles
On yellowed photographs

Well I still sing that song
And I get its meaning now
It speaks about our summers
And your laughter rings again.

Thanks to my sweet Calen for inspiring such memories

By the way, the song:

Lazarus

As the cheerless towns pass my window
I can see a washed out moon through the fog
And then a voice inside my head breaks the analogue
And says

“Follow me down to the valley below
You know moonlight is bleeding from out of your soul”

I survived against the will of my twisted folk
But in the deafness of my world the silence broke
And said

“Follow me down to the valley below
You know moonlight is bleeding from out of your soul”

“My David, don’t you worry, this cold world is not for you
So rest your head upon me, I have strength to carry you”

Ghosts of the twenties rising
Golden summers just holding you

“Follow me down to the valley below
You know moonlight is bleeding from out of your soul
Come to us, Lazarus, it’s time for you to go”
