Lost Soul

A lost soul eager to seek happiness
Just floating in the vast wilderness
It’s determined, not wanting to rest
To find joy is the ultimate test

But the lost soul is…

Drifting… wandering… where would it be?
Just hoping… wishing… to finally see
The light which will pave the way for me
Drifting… wandering… let it be free

A creative spirit wanting freedom
Just flowing to only find boredom
Embattled in search for its passion
Beaten, broken, there’s no salvation

Now the spirit is…

Drifting… wandering… where would it be?
Lost in the crowd and not able to see
The glimmer of light is just blinding me
Drifting… wandering… can never be free

Hey There

Hey there,
Yeah you, I meant you,
The one behind the tree trunk
Shying yourself to the world
Why are you hiding?
To whom are you hiding?
Can you come around?
Can you talk to me, please?

Hey there,
Did you know
That I’ve been looking for you?
Been searching everywhere?
So imagine my surprise
When I found you there
Just within my territory
And not feeling your presence

Did you also know
You’re a key piece to my life
You give me direction
An inspiration to my bleak days
I know what happened
I understand why you turned away
I only want us to be whole again
Can you at least face me, please?

Hey there,
Still scared to show yourself?
You know, I will never get tired
Of telling you how much you mean
Of proving you my sincerity
I will just stay here, waiting
Until you’re ready, have courage
I’m only afraid time will soon run out…

Hey there,
Yeah you, the one in the mirror
I just hope you’re listening…

Immersion

Author’s Note: Just lyrics, without melody.

I see you as a figment in my dream
An apparition of what it may seem
A part of me is just imagining
A life with you could be the perfect thing

Refrain:
But I’m crippled with just a thought of you
Yet I’d do anything to be with you

Chorus:
I want to see through you
Let every inch of you be magnified
I want to get through you
Let’s be one and our souls be unified
I want to see through you
Yes, I want to be immersed with you…

Somehow my vision of you seems so clear
With you, I am abandoning my fear
This emotion, it’s new yet it’s surreal
Maybe I am now ready to be real

Repeat Refrain and Chorus

Bridge:
Why don’t we stop this pretention
Now it’s time to take some action
Let’s converge, it’s our immersion

Repeat Chorus

Yes, I want to be immersed with you
Together, we’ll forever be one…

Fly High / Swim Hard

When all is lost and there’s nothing to gain
Look for a rainbow hiding behind the clouds
Then open your wings, take a leap and be free
Then fly… fly high to be closer to the dream

It is about choice though it’s not as plain
But remove all doubts, be brave and be proud
Then open your eyes to finally see
Then fly… fly high until you reach the dream

When it’s not what you planned and life’s a pain
Find the shore where there’s a welcoming crowd
Then take a deep breath, dive into the sea
Then swim… swim hard towards the flow of stream

Sometimes it’s fine to deviate from the train
Listen to your heart that’s screaming so loud
Then follow the lead, it’s not the time to flee
Then swim… swim hard until you reach the dream

Keep The Chase

Sometimes I am hitting a wall
I can’t pass through it, I am stuck
It would be the end, my downfall
And all I can hear is the clock
Counting ’til the death of my all

But I wish for time to stop ticking
It’s the sound I refuse to hear
Can the world stop from spinning
And shelter myself from my fear
To standstill ’til a new beginning

Sometimes I run but reach a cliff
There’s nowhere to go, should I leap
It’s suicide and it would be brief
Accept the end, just take a deep
Then wander in oblivion without grief

But I don’t want to be in that place
I need to get away from that cage
I am afraid to drift in space
So I’ll fight to not reach that stage
It’s my battle to keep the chase

I Am…

I am again counting every minute
Itching every moment until I’m restless

I am drumming my fingers on my desk
Strumming to the beat of an empty tune

I am staring blankly at my PC screen
Focusing beyond my mind’s consciousness

I am studying flowcharts and numbers
Calculating my imagination’s depth

I am looking outside, admiring the scene
Anticipating change to this unknown pace

I am pretending – pretending this is life
Wondering if I would ever be unmasked

Roundabout

roundabout

It is a roundabout and I can’t find my exit
It is unsetting, I wonder if I’m losing it
I just drive in circles until my gas is emptied
Or until my mind to eventually see a lead

My path is clearly blocked by this insanity
And vision is blurred towards the road to destiny
It is puzzling and my engine is slowly dying
But I will keep driving even if I’m just circling

THIS is my roundabout and I can’t find THE exit
I’m getting restless, soon, I might be losing it
I still drive in loops hoping my tank is refilled
For I need to stay here until THE way is revealed
