Changes

Written By: Femke Weidema

Changes

I walk along this dusty road,
No destination in my mind.
A strange old man told me the way that I should go,
Well I had nothing else to do but try.

I stumble across this old town, this old place,
I buy a beer to taste the sun.
What are you doing, what is your name, what is your goal?
I said I don’t know.

Because I’m changing
Since I left my house this morning.
Changing, oh my,
Because I’m changing,
It wasn’t planned no it just happened.
Changing, into a butterfly.

I met this woman who’d seen everything in live.
She had nothing left to give.
She told me girl, the only thing I learned this live
Is that the sun will always bring a brand new day

Maybe it’s my destiny,
Maybe it’s my faith
To wonder in search of something new
Don’t need a house, don’t need a man I need a clue!
Of where I’m going.........

Because I’m changing
Since I left my house this morning.
Changing, oh my,
Because I’m changing,
It wasn’t planned no it just happened.
Changing, into a butterfly.

Summerkisses

Written By: Femke Weidema

Summer kisses

The cool summer breeze makes me warm inside
Cool summer breeze all through the night,
And you move like honey on a silver plate
No need to hurry, time can wait.

I won’t be lonely; no I’ll be fine,
I love this summer loving you are on my mind
This never lasts forever I just need your
Cool summer kisses
I need you cool summer kisses..

Waiting for, the sun to set
I close my eyes, drift away on my waterbed
You walk towards me and you take my hand
“ Fly to the moon with me darling, no need to understand”

I won’t be lonely; no I’ll be fine,
I love this summer loving you are on my mind
This never lasts forever I just need your
Cool summer kisses
I need you cool summer kisses..

Rhythm

Written By: Femke Weidema

Rhythm

Have you ever seen the sky in a thunderstorm
A rush of blood through your veins.
Feel the tingling on your skin when the raindrops fall
Smell the freshness when it rains.

You only get up and prepare for another useless day
That’s how you wake up in the morning.
Can’t you take a look around and feel the warmth of may
Can’t you take this as a warning

Your mind is focused on the ground
You can look up and hear the sound and…

Feel the rhythm, it is never the same ,different every day
Feel the rhythm, you can dance this life away.
Feel the rhythm, it’s a different groove, you’ve got to improve
Feel the rhythm, baby it is time to move on…

Can’t you hear the laughter on a summer day,
Don’t you think about the good times
Maybe it’s time to break the walls and let the sunlight in
It is time to break free.

If you go on you loose your mind
Baby can’t you feel it’s time to

Feel the rhythm, it is never the same ,different every day
Feel the rhythm, you can dance this life away.
Feel the rhythm, it’s a different groove, you’ve got to improve
Feel the rhythm, baby it is time to move on…

Feel your rhythm, it is never the same ,different every day
Feel your rhythm, you can dance this life away.
Feel your rhythm, it’s a different groove, you’ve got to improve
Feel your rhythm, baby it is time to move on…
