Track Name: Little Place Called Pai
Pouring rain on the streets of Pai
Six strings in my hand while the people pass me by
I've seen the red monks in the lonesome land
I've walked the miles and now I know where I stand
I guess I'll rest for a while, in this little place called Pai

Here where the clouds lay up on the hills
I met a wise river, who seems to know just how I feel
Got me an ol'e bike, rice fields all around
Shouting a local Blues when the sun goes down
I guess I'll rest for a while, in this little place called Pai

I guess I'll rest for a while, lord knows I need to rest for a while
Well it's the right place at the right time for this little heart of mine,
just for a while
All I wanted was to ramble and roam
Now even a thought came – I could make it my home
I guess I'll rest for a while, in this little place called Pai
Track Name: Shores Of Simplicity
What will you do, if one day you could see your future,
Up on a screen or within the eyes of your lover?
What will you do if you'll find that you could read your neighbor's mind? Well I wonder
Anytime you'd like to join me, I'll be hanging' on the shores of uncertainty

What will you say when the illusion revolution will knock on your door?
It'll say: “you won't have to go out of your door no more”
Just press the button, express your needs, save your worries and troubles brother, whatever you desire, right away it'll feed
What will you say? What will you do? I just sit and wonder

No need to remember, no need to think, ain't no use in dreaming, in a while you won't even speak
Will you proudly walk into this secure five stars jail? Well I wonder
Anytime you'd like to join me, I'll be hanging' on the shores of simplicity

You better make up your mind brother, please don't think that you can wait
because if you can't decide soon, before you know it it might be too late
Track Name: Plays The Blues And Proud
You got to have a good eye
To design your latest news
But what can I do? (be proud)
All I know is just the Blues

To play the clubs, write them all
Make the call and don't you snooze
Well just between us (be proud)
All I know is just the Blues

Be proud you tell me
But that's not exactly what my bank would say
I can't recall choosing this profession
But there's nothing else those fingers wanna play

Be wise with your career
Your music probably will get refused
But what can I do? (be proud)
All I know is just the Blues

You better love the night life
Spend some time and drink some booze
Well I don't know about it.. (be proud)
All I know is just the Blues
Track Name: Keep It Cool
All day long, all I do is think
And you wonder why people start to drink

Right and wrong and happy and sad
Black and white and good and bad
We have a business with a very stubborn mule
Let me loose my mind and remind me to keep it cool

I know it all, I have my way
It doesn't really matter as long as it pays
The money time begins when someone brakes the rule
Let me loose my mind and remind me to keep it cool
Track Name: The Beating Heart Of The Camp (Blues For Etty Hillesum)
Sometimes I feel like I’m standing on a spire above the hall of history
I’m looking far far away, but our time is where I want to be
Forbidding signs everywhere, still my roads filled with sky and air
Those two hands maybe tied but not my pride

A Room and a chair, bread and some cherry’s, a friendly face, all seem like precious gifts
There’s no doubt - life gets harder, but within me it’s getting rich
And there’s you with your big kind hands, endless kindness sometimes is hard to bear
It took me a while but now I can say: well I’m that girl who learned to kneel down and pray

My lord, will you let me stay? so much love to give away
To whom, whom I can tell? that I don’t hate at all?
Cut the evil - not the man, were all human, I can understand
Lord I’m grateful with no demands, just to be the beating heart of the camp

You find the good in everything - they all tell me, but they're wrong
The good is always everywhere along with the evil, they sing a song
There is too much in us to change, two thousand years of fear and rage
This heavy burden - I got to bear and inner freedom may be my share

My lord, will you let me stay? so much love to give away
To whom, whom I can tell? that I don’t hate at all?
Cut the evil - not the man, were all human, I can understand
Lord I’m grateful with no demands, just to be the beating heart of the camp
Track Name: Fifteen Hours
Fifteen hours, what do you wanna do?
Now in this airport, once again it's me and you
We can wander around all night long
And let the moon reveal its nighttime song
You can take my hand together we can't go wrong

Thirteen hours until we say goodbye
You feel like dancing, just before we fly
You told me with your secret smile:
Lets forget ourselves just for a while
You can take my hand together we can't go wrong

Now I realize, that I don't mind
As long as you are here this plane can leave me behind
Only ten hours, what do you wanna do?
We can lough about it all again
Or take a flight to a distant land
You can take my hand together we can't go wrong

You're going your way
And I'm going mine
Two flights have been delayed
But since we met it's more than fine
Now I realize, that I don't mind
As long as you are here this plane can leave me behind
Just three hours, what are we gonna do?
If in everything that happens there's a sign
What will be yours and what will be mine?
So now we're here, and you and I know
That it's on the same plane we belong
So take my hand together we can't go wrong
Track Name: All Of You
Give me you hand - I want to see what tomorrow brings
Give me your eyes – so I could wash away all your tears
Give me your heart, give me your soul, and a bit of your mind too
Let me rephrase: I want all of you

Give me your skin – your smell is all the air I need
Give me your ears – so I could whisper my love very near
Give me your nose, give me your lips, and a bit of your blood too
Let me rephrase : I want all of you

I don't mean to be impolite, forgive me if I do
But there's just one more thing I'm gonna ask of you:
Give me your heart, give me your soul, and a bit of your mind too
Let me rephrase: I want all of you
Track Name: Smiles And Cries
Don't Show me how smart you are
Just tell me where you've been
Well I've been around for some time
and I'll tell you just what I've seen

In this place we call earth
People are born and people die
They all trying to make their way
Playing this game of sell and buy

They may not look the same
They may not sound the same
They may not act the same
Each one as different as his name
But deep inside you'll hear that same ole heart that sighs
Because when it all comes down to it -
It's nothing but some smiles and cries
Track Name: Let The Man Go Free
Lately I dream
And in the dream I see us sitting on a tree
Above all borderlines - yours and mine
We will unwind and let the man go free

Up on this tree
You won't find no religion nor society
We all gather here to breath air with no ideas
We do believe you can let the man go free

Lately I dream
And in this dream I see us sitting on a tree
And wonder when we could go down to the ground
Maybe when we'll find how to make the man go free

If I'm not the only one who dreams of this tree, who else?
In a minute I will open my eyes for good
