Clouds

Clouds (Musik & Text: Jo Gläßer)

when he was a Little boy he stood at the edge of the world
he was looking to the west and he was looking to the clouds 
and he wished to be like they were
then he grew up and the times to look up went rare
he had to work very hard and his wishes started to blur

he told himself someday I’ll go to places where the winds starts to blow

I’ll go far far far away I’m gonna catch me a cloud I’ gonna realize it someday
let the wind show me the way I will water the dry land and go to the highlands and stay

then he went older and times didn’t seem to get better 
he went to work every day and when he came home someday
she was gone and she left him a letter
she wrote darling I can’t bear you living like this 
you have to suffer alone I’m going now on my own and leave you this last kiss

when he was aged he forgot that he once had a dream 
and the memory of her that he had loved most vanished and was only aa gleam
when he felt life would end he looked up for the first time since years
he saw a cloud disengage and come closer to him and it whispered in his ears

Skye

Skye (Musik & Text: Dirk Frielingsdorf & Tim Roderwieser)

Skye, you are my island, some kind of homeland, part of my life,
Skye, gate to the ocean, clouds over mountains, heart over mind.

These are the reasons why we´re coming to your places
to find a new hope and leave emotional mazes

One, caught by the darkness, without direction, heart full of tears.
And one, doubts in the Northlands, lying in her hands, chained in his fears.

Now I have found my way back into life again,
and now I have found my hope for just one love again,
on the isle of Skye

They, came from the Highlands, rolled over seashores, searched for the life,
They, built up a friendship, climbed up the old man, and found the light

a sign was sent, it was a whale down from the ocean,
a rock was given to the sea in deep Devotion.

Than, we left the darkness, went on to Durness, a new morning came,
now, back from the seashores, Skye our island, gave hope a name.
