  THE BROKEN STAIRS

  I walk the broken stairs

  into the ruined city

  where I once knew a girl

  with a face so pretty

  But so much time

  has passed since then

  I’ve been traveling the world

  since god knows when

  And I can’t tell

  if she’s still there

  does she remember my name

  or does she still care

  ‘Cause so much time

  has passed since when

  I left her side

  and then I ran

  I ran across the desert

  I sailed across the sea

  I met up with the devil

  and asked him to set me free

  He looked at me

  with an evil smile

  and he said to me

  “It’s gonna take a while”

  So I ran back across the desert

  and sailed across the sea

  in my search of god

  I found that he was me

  And all my angels and demons

  that were locked in a dance

  I realize now that my life is my own

  nothing left out for chance

  Now I walk the broken stairs

  into the ruined city

  where I once knew a girl

  with a face so pretty

  And even though

  so much time has passed

  I still believe our love

  is no thing of the past

  IF YOU’RE GOING BACK HOME

  If you’re going back home

  to that far away place

  where I was once known

  take these words of mine

  before they get lost in time

  Tell my mother I’m doing fine

  that I’m out on my own

  and I don’t have much

  but what I have is mine

  Tell her I can’t come back

  that I’ve gone too far

  and I can’t stop now

  but tell her not to worry

  I’m keeping track

  of all of my steps

  and I’m never in a hurry

  I’m not breaking my back

  And if you’re going back home

  to that far away place

  where I was once known

  take these words of mine

  before they get lost in time

  Tell my love I’m doing great

  that I’m out on own

  and I have more than enough

  I’ve turned a new slate

  Tell her I won’t come back

  that I’ve gone too far

  and I won’t stop now

  I know she doesn’t worry

  or keeps any track

  of any of my steps

  she’s always in a hurry

  breaking her back

  If you’re going back home

  to that far away place

  where I was once known

  take these words of mine

  before I get lost in time

  BORED IN PARADISE

  I’m bored in paradise

  laying around on a hot summers day

  I feel like I’m in hell

  and I’ve got no ice

  I’m just bored in paradise

  I’m bored in paradise

  looking down a quiet bay

  I feel like I’m doing well

  but don’t ask me twice

  I’m just bored in paradise

  I’m bored in paradise

  breathing in the peaceful wind

  I feel like I can fly

  but I’ve got no wings to try

  I’m bored in paradise

  thinking about how I’ve sinned

  I feel like I should seek forgiveness

  but I’ve done too many things to try

  I’m bored in paradise

  waiting for the night

  I feel like I’m all alone

  but you’re right by my side

  I’m just bored in paradise

  I’m bored in paradise

  trying to find some insight

  I feel like I should share my love

  but in the end I’ll run and hide

  I’m just bored in paradise

  LATELY

  Lately I’ve been asking myself

  when you’re asleep

  do you ever dream of me

  and when you’re awake

  do you ever think of me

  When you’re all alone

  do you ever want to call my name

  and when you’re with him

  do you ever wish you were with me

  Lately I’ve been thinking to myself

  how much I miss your kisses and your smiles

  how much I miss our talks

  and how you held my hand when we used to walk for miles

  And lately I’ve been thinking to myself

  just how much I miss you

  Lately I’ve been asking myself

  when you’re asleep

  do you dream about him

  and when you’re awake

  do you think about him

  When you’re all alone

  do you still call his name

  and when you’re with me

  do you wish you were with him

  Lately I’ve been thinking to myself

  do you even miss my kisses and my smiles

  do you miss our talks

  and how I held your hand when we used to walk for miles

  And lately I’ve been thinking to myself

  just how much I miss you

  DRIVING IN MY CAR

  Driving in my car

  never thought I’d go so far

  trying to find my baby

  hoping she won’t say maybe

  I tried calling you on the phone

  but every time I called

  all I heard was

  “Please leave a message,

  after the tone…”

  I tried to follow you around

  but you were nowhere to be found

  I tried following the Sun

  but driving in this heat sure ain’t no fun

  I tried following the Moon

  but she runs away just a bit too soon

  I went deep inside my mind

  but no matter how hard I tried

  this answer I could not find

  somebody tell me

  where did my baby hide

  I asked a sunny day

  what did my baby say

  did she leave town

  or is she still here

  I can’t find her anywhere

  And I asked the stars above

  to help me find my love

  but they wouldn’t help me out

  they just ignored me

  and left me here in doubt

  Now I’m driving in my car

  never thought I’d go so far

  trying to find my baby

  hoping she won’t say maybe

  I CAN’T PRETEND

  In the seventh hour of the day

  for the seventh time since yesterday

  I’ve
thought about you girl

  yeah I still think about you girl

  You know I can’t pretend

  and I still can’t comprehend

  that what we had is gone

  I just can’t ramble on

  And I know it’s long overdue

  but I can’t help it

  I’m still thinking about you

  In the seventh day of June

  for the seventh year since that full moon

  when everything we had came to an end

  when I lost my love and my best friend

  You know I can’t pretend

  and I still can’t comprehend

  that what we had is gone

  I just can’t ramble on

  And I know I’m stuck in no man’s land

  but I can’t help it

  I still miss my love, my friend

  The seventh doctor I have seen

  for the seventh time with this routine

  they can’t fix my broken heart

  they just say it fell apart

  You know it can’t pretend

  and it still can’t comprehend

  that what we had is gone

  my heart won’t ramble on

  And I know it’s all in vain

  but I can’t help it

  my heart’s in too much pain

  TRUTH AND LOVE

  With each new line

  truth reveals itself

  and out of the shadows

  love will appear

  We live for the moment but

  can we live for each other

  heal our broken spirits and let

  the love reunite everyone in our

  world, we only have this one home

  But,

  with each new deception

  lies spread through us all

  and into the darkness

  hate always leads

  We can bring light but

  will you even care or just

  destroy this Eden of peace

  it was created for you

  all with the love you once knew

  With truth and love

  we can heal the world

  but with lies and hate

  we will destroy it all

  THINGS I DON’T KNOW

  I want to see the sky

  in a different shade of blue

  trying to remember

  things I never knew

  Like flying through the air

  on softest angels wings

  going up to heaven

  to hear the songs he sings

  Like holding you close

  to feel your heartbeat

  slowly falling down

  landing on our own two feet

  I hope one day

  we can watch our child grow

  trying to remember

  things we don’t know

  Like walking naked

  into the shallow water

  fooling around

  as the day keeps getting hotter

  Like holding your hand

  and feel your every shiver

  as we walk down

  down into the deep wide river

  So come on darling

  share my point of view

  try to remember

  things you never knew

  Like sleeping in a bed

  made for me and you

  haven’t you heard

  dreams, they do come true

  Like sitting on a hill

  listening to the wind blow

  please let me remember

  things I don’t know

  Let me remember

  things I don’t know

  Let me remember

  things I don’t know

  SEXY LADY

  Hey sexy lady

  won’t you slow your walkin’ down

  Hey sexy lady

  can we talk for a minute now

  Hey sexy lady

  I’m tryin’ to catch up with you

  Hey sexy lady

  I’m tryin’ to say a thing or two

  Hey sexy lady

  I really like your stylin’ ways

  Hey sexy lady

  I wanna feel your warm embrace

  Hey sexy lady

  I really dig your lovely scent

  Hey sexy lady

  I’ve got a clear and good intent

  Hey sexy lady

  I think you should give me a chance

  Hey sexy lady

  don’t turn me down after just one glance

  Hey sexy lady

  won’t you slow your walkin’ down

  Hey sexy lady

  can we talk for a minute now

  ONE SUNDAY MORNING

  I wake up to a cloudy day

  I turn to see if you’re still here

  and I whisper softly in your ear

  “Good morning love, did you sleep well,

  hope you were not awaken by the damn church bell”

  You turn to me as if to say

  “My love I’m here and I always will

  stay by your side even if it all goes down the hill”

  You kiss my lips and with your eyes

  you turn the clouds into a new sunrise

  And if I ever get a chance to sing

  I’ll tell the whole world about us

  I’ll scream and shout out just because

  I want all the people to know about our thing

  Out in the streets a Sunday morning

  the fields relieved of all working hands

  we stay in bed, no one around us understands

  we haven’t made any plans, just enjoy the silence until it lasts

  this world fills with violence oh so fast, too fast

  Down by the river birds are singing

  the air is full of words we never say

  we’ll just ignore them, they don’t mater anyway

  as long as you are by my side I fear no night, I fear no day

  my future always looks all right with you

  And if I ever get a chance to sing

  I’ll tell the whole world about us

  I’ll scream and shout out just because

  I want all the people to know about our thing

  FLYING IN MY HEAD

  I’m lying in a bed

  with my arms and legs in chains

  feels like I’m flying in my head

  but they won’t release me from these strains

  People come and people go

  I hear their voices and see their faces

  but the words they say I do not know

  my mind has gone to different places

  To you it may seem strange

  why I don’t stand and bloom

  but it’s too late for me to change

  I’m stuck forever in this room

  You won’t be here for long

  soon I’ll be on my own

  but I’ll still sing my song

  oh can’t you hear me moan

  I don’t care much for friends and folks

  all of them strangers, won’t get to close

  but I believe life is full of jokes

  guess you don’t get them, you’re just a rose

  I keep lying in this bed

  with my arms and legs in chains

  feels like I’m flying in my head

  poison running through my veins

  WALK WITH ME

  On my back I carry all the sins

  that force me down onto my knees

  and fall with me into my grave

  where I will sleep and wait

  until my new life begins

  free from suffering and hate

  I will stand up and be brave

  Walk with me,

  I need you to walk with me

  All my troubles of today

  will be forgotten and thrown away

  I’ll walk this land from end to end

  over sticks and stones, over bricks and bones
/>
  free from pains and fears and such

  I will find you in the end

  you know I miss you all too much

  Walk with me,

  I need you to walk with me

  On my back I’ll carry all your sins

  that force you down onto your knees

  I’ll follow you into your grave

  where we will sleep and wait

  until our new life will begin

  free from suffering and hate

  we will walk together again

  Walk with me,

  I need you to walk with me

  AUTHOR’S NOTES

  This is more of a “dear diary” moment and not much of a proper outro.

  Last month I published ‘Ramblings’ - and one of the things I wrote about was my internal desire to travel and the wait for something to happen.

  Well something happened in the first half of April - I applied for a working holiday visa in New Zealand and got it. I plan on going there in September, for about 6-8 months.

  So, yeah, that’s that.

  About vol. 6 - it was written in the summer of 2012, between June and August, with the first half written in King’s Landing and nearby places of that country.
