Lyrics

Walking In The Dark

Written By: Gigs

I'm walking in the dark
Where all your safes are locked
You got my heart if I'm not mistaken

I gave it years ago
Back when I didn't know
That your precious heart's not for the taken

But like a fish you reel me in
And I've forgotten how to swim
I write to you cause I'm in trouble

It's a case of disbelief
I'm like a fallen leaf
I lay around until I crumble

But you pick me up you see
You got this hold on me
And I know some day we'll be together

* Written about the death my brother in a military helicopter crash that took place in Israel in 1997.

Waterfalls

Written By: Gigs

You turn my eyes to waterfalls
You turn my heart to a train
And I know I know I am lost
But I've broken out of these chains

I know a curtain surrounds me
And all of this rock is a stage
We'll open up open these blinds
To see the end of this page
But we could change

I freeze when you're around me
But when you leave the seasons change
I've opened up but I'm locked inside
I'm like a bird in a cage

That's been served fear all of his life
Don't know what love really means
But we could teach a better way
And learn to dream a better dream

The Ripple

Written By: Gigs

Fighting the demons in the back of her mind
Walking on thin ice
On her search for solid ground
And all of her conviction
Well it don’t amount to much
When everything just turns to stone
To the sense of her touch

Now I am not a savior
I’m as good and bad as you
I just want you to open your mind
Don’t ask why, or who or what or how
When all of this shit is happening now

But we can stop this ripple
And admit that we’re at fault
Stop this ripple
It’s the only chance we got
To stop this ripple
Our teachers must be taught
How to stop this ripple

I’m like an oceanless sailor
With no water around to find
Got no message for the bottle
I want to leave behind
"So what are we doing here", she said
"Just enjoying this moment?"
See, it’s all in your head
Just a state in your head
But we can

Stop this ripple
And admit that we’re at fault
Stop this ripple
It’s the only chance we got
To stop this ripple
Our teachers must be taught
How to stop this ripple

The Gypsy

Written By: Gigs (Sagi Shreibman)

I guess I’m the gypsy of song and of sound
A one man circus running around from town to town
Sometimes I feel like a magician, like I’m on the trapeze
But sometimes I feel like a clown
Sometimes I feel like the clown

But I'm free to be me
And I feel so alive
Going 65 on another all night drive
Another all night drive

I’ve been floating down this river
Like a fish a grain of sand
And some they say I’m chosen people but I am just a man
And I’m tired of this nonsense yeah I’m sick of all this vain
We could rise out of the darkness if we step out of the shade

Where I'm free to be me
And I feel so alive
Going 65 on another all night drive
Another all night drive
Another drive
