Lyrics

sugar

Written By: ania jakubek

oh my love you're inside but you'd rather be outside
and oh love you're so busy you're paralyzed and i,
oh i understand, and i, i understand

where you want to be.
close your eyes, drift on, lie down in the sun.
where you want to be.
and she says,

"hey, the sun is here to stay, so babe,
don't worry! and it will be here another day,
so babe, have patience for me."

and everyone is fulfilling demands, but no one
is living and oh love, i want to rest my head in
your lap and relax, and i know,
i know you understand.

where i want to be.
close my eyes, drift on, lie down in the sun.
where i want to be.
but you say,

"hey, the sun is here to stay, so babe,
don't worry! and it will be here another day,
so babe, have patience...

for me."

you are the music

Written By: ania jakubek

you're standing alone in a pool of light
everything, everyone is out of your sight.
you start to sing and close your eyes.
then you forget everything.

cause you are the music
while the music lasts.

you're drifting alone in a pool of gray
everything, everyone is far far away
you go on singing while your fingers bleed,
but you don't feeling anything

cause you are the music
while the music lasts

you're standing alone in a pool of light
everything, everyone's still out of your sight.
nothing more to sing,
you open your eyes.
then you recall everything.

cause you are the music
while the music lasts.

yeah you are the music.
