Run for Your Love

length: 3:45

By J.Porter

Love is a high
Love is a prison
It takes your blood
Your juice, your s____
Love is so small
Love just gets bigger
It makes you a slave
Gives you back a freedom
So run, run, run, run, run - oh run

For Your Love
For Your Love

Love is a ritual
Love is a symbol
It can make you strong
And leave you humble
Love is a dog
An ancient riddle
A beggar's bowl
At the royal Table
So...

Love is an Outlaw
Love is Forgiveness
A hidden kingdom
A desolate wilderness
Love is a god
Who's friends with the Devil
You'd walk through Fire
To burn up
So...

For Your Love
For Your Love

Down by the Lake

length: 4:19
By A.Lipnicka

Down by the lake
Where you used to sit
In the morning sun
Spreading gold around
I Can see you still
Waving back to me
Praising the day

Looking at you
Who would have guessed
You were turning then
The final page
Of your book of life
There was no warning sign
Not the slightest alert

Did you see enough
Of all that you wanted to see
Did you feel loved
As much as you needed to be
Would you change at all
Any line in that story of yours

I stare at the view
In the window frame
Seasons come and go
Sun trips high and low
There's no break for a sigh
For a tear to dry
The clock doesn't wait

I wish I was strong
Just enough to find
Everything I miss
About you in me
But the road of despair
Just leads me there
Down by the lake

Did you see...

Lonesome Traveller

length: 4:01
By J.Porter

Where's that lonesome traveller
Who bids farewell and walks away
Who takes away my dreams
To protect them from the day
And where have all the bridges gone
And young lovers burning bright
You can only see them
Under the blanket of the night

I don't know where you came from
You just stepped into the light
Said that we're all travellers
On this dusty road called Life

Who will catch the Wonder
As it rains down from the sky
Bring back all our laughter
Put the sun back up high
And where did all the seasons go
An explosion of shadow and light
You can only see them
Under the blanket of the night

I don't know where you came from
You just stepped into the light
Said that we're all travellers
On this dusty road called Life

Who will lay me down
In the coolness of the shade
Stroke my brow, caress my hand
On that eternal day
And where will all my memories go
Will they all fade out of sight
You can only see them
Under the blanket of the night

I don't know where you came from
You just stepped into the light
Said that we're all travellers
On this dusty road called Life

Good to See You

length: 4:19
By J.Porter

Names don't count for much in this place
It's what you do and what you don't
You can almost put your fist through the echoes
That glide unforeseen on their way home
And s___e in where nobody's standing
On this point, on this line
I always knew I'd see you again
But its been one helluva time

it's good to see you
See you survived
it's good to see you
See you still alive

A flock of angels flew by my window
They reminded me of you
So brave and young, flexing your wings
Save the world was what you were gonna do
One day you were gone like the strike of a match
Up into the great unknown
A sky pilot who scorched the clouds
In your machine of shining chrome

it's good to see you
See you survived
it's good to see you
See you still alive

Don't know were you've been,
what you've seen
How you separated the lies from truth
Your eyes two caves, two candles
And a cloud thay follows you
We have no questions, need no answers
Silence breaks this unearthly sound
What went up had to come down
As this darkness settles around

it's good to see you
See you survived
it's good to see you
See you still alive

Old Time Radio

length: 3:15
By A.Lipnicka

I woke up this morning to the sound of the breaking on my heart
I woke up this morning to find out the world, I knew has fallen apart
All the birds are screaming, shut them down,shut them down, down
Stormy clouds are falling, move them round, move them round,round

Maybe ,there's a way we could lose this pain
Break free, push rewind, play it all again.

I woke up this morning to the song of an old time radio
I woke up this morning to the voice reaching me from long ago
All the birds are singing sweet and high, sweet and high, high
Peacefull clouds are floating in the sky,in the blue sky

Maybe ,there's a way we could lose this pain
Break free, push rewind, play it all again.

All the birds are singing sweet and high, sweet and high, high

Maybe ,there's a way we could lose this pain
Break free, push rewind, play it all again.

Maybe ,there's a way we could lose this pain
Break free, push rewind, play it all again.

Lover Turn Around

length: 3:05
By J.Porter

Whole lotta people shopping for love
Think they got religion - the colour of blood
So many bees around the flowers but where's the honey
You can take the memory but you can't take the money

Lover, turn around
One last time
Lover, turn around

No need to make a statement, so many around
I'll buy a ticket to the moon on the underground
Read a little Ha Jin, a little Hanif
Come to terms with reality, get the twist of my drift

Lover, turn around
One last time
Lover, turn around

Well I'm packing up my things bit by bit
Throwing out the stuff that doesn't fit
Got a compass, a road map and a mint for the taste
Don't wanna be lost when I leave this place

Lover, turn around
One last time
Lover, turn around

Secret Wish

length: 3:55
By A.Lipnicka & J.Porter

Summertime's long dead and gone
When a sudden heat wave burns my skin
Caught his eye and all went lost -
For someone guessed my secret wish...

s___eships and stars
Freeze all at once -
And let this moment last

Can you see the fireworks?
Taste gunpowder in your mouth?
Can you hear the Sirens sing?
It's too late to turn around...

Don't try too hard
Just be here now
And let this moment last
Summertime's long dead and gone
When a sudden heat wave burns my skin
Caught his eye and all got lost -
A little thought become a sin

s___eships and stars
Take up your flights -
The moment's over...

You're not the Only One

length: 3:34
By J.Porter

Have you ever been down to those crossroads
At least in your mind
To get the deal of your life
Walk on by, get seriously blind

Have you ever been struck by a blinding light
Let your life run over you
Get to tame the beast within
The one who's in love with you

You're not the only one
Who's the lonely one
You're not the only one
Who can't sleep at night

Have you got to the top of the mountain
To find the clouds have been moved
Found a story to break out from
That story that's following you

You're not the only one
Who's the lonely one
You're not the only one
Who can't sleep at night

How You Doin Today

length: 3:49
By J.Porter

Been a driver who went blind at the traffic lights
Suddenly the world melts and goes wild
Taken many a shot, swallowed many a bitter pill
Been a kind of crocodile
Sometimes the days just feel like years
And suddenly I remembered you
Rained today, met an old friend, played the guitar
But call is something I'll never do

How you doing today
How you feeling today
How you talking today
How you looking today

There are some shadows on my wall I still ignore
And a whole lot of memories that bite
Slipping from the shelter of your warm embrace
With the sadness we didn't get it right

Runner Run

length: 4:24
By A.Lipnicka

Rain won't wash this dirt away
It will last, it will stay
Like some cheap tattoo
Made in the wild days
Inadequate and unwanted now

Time will never fix it up
It will burn, day and night
Like a question thrown
Into the silence
Unanswered still, just left to die

Runner, runner, you may run
To the edge of the world
When you're there, don't be surprised
That you haven't moved at all
At all

So you start anew again
You lock the door, catch a train
Now you�re digging up
Another grave for
Your shattered dreams and worn out lies

You pick a girl and marry her
You love her smile, you need her veil
Just to cover up
In its snow pure whiteness
The blackened secrets of your heart

Runner, runner, you may run
To the edge of the world
When you're there, don't be surprised
That you haven't moved at all
At all

In the thickest hour of the night
You see yourself from high above
A single tear
Could save your life
Soon the day breaks in, but your eyes stay dry

Stone Cold Morning

length: 2:57
By J.Porter

Never give up on your adventures and dreams
All that silver, gold and glory
On this stone cold morning

Your fridge is on the blink, dirty dishes in the sink
No one calls you up, no one to call
An invisible line has been crossed

You've got yourself a stone cold morning
Sooner or later
Everyone faces a stone cold morning

The wind rattles your kitchen windows
Life's got too tight, all the colors fade
On this stone cold morning

Nothing's really changed except the humming in the air
As you open your backdoor onto this
Stone cold morning

You've got yourself a stone cold morning
Sooner or later
Everyone faces a stone cold morning
