Lyrics

Behind The Blue

Written By: Kiril Valeri

BEHIND THE BLUE

Every time that I`m feeling down
and I sit alone in the dark blue room,
every time that I`m feeling drowned
in the darkness of the moon,
every time that I`m deserted,
feeling small and full of doubts,
there`s a place where I can run to,
over there - behind the blue...
People passing by my window -
different faces and no names,
in the silence of the blue room
chasing memories again...
Quiet place where I can turn to,
where I`m beautiful and sane,
there`s a place where I can run to,
somewhere...

There is a hidden place behind the blue,
somewhere we can all belong one day for sure
and what I´m saying now in this song
is that we never ever have to be afraid at all -
of dreaming...
There is a hidden space behind the blue for me and you
that all of us just know...

You can tell me that I`m a dreamer
lost in a funny blue romance,
you can try to laugh at me and
you can even try to tell me
I`ve no chance.
I don´t need no clever minds that
do not know how to fly,
I don´t need no good advisers -
they do not feel what`s behind
that sacred quiet place of mine...
It´s so bright with happy laughter,
it`s so sad with honest tears
and it´s something I´ve been looking after.
It´s a place that I can call "Home",
keeping me alive in all those years,
no fears that light disappears,
one is safe behind the blue...

Fat green bogies (don`t like)

FAT GREEN BOGIES (don`t like...)

When I saw you that day walking down the street
I said to my self: "My God,what a damn good-looking Queen!"
But then you stopped and opened your mouth to speak to me,
I guess you never care for more than your looks,
so move on, please! I`ve got an arrogance allergy.

Welcome to the Groovy-silly Chicks` Club...

Why do you think that half of the world lays at your feet?
Why do you think that everybody`s acting at your command?
Come on, just wake up from the stupid pinkish dream you`re in,
perfect body, pretty face, but superficial mind was never good enough
for me...

Don`t like your fat green bogies,
I don´t even think I like anyting `bout you.
Please, get away with those bogies!!
Don´t wanna spend a minute on a silly snob like you.

Welcome to the Groovy-silly Chicks` Club...

Living is believing (big fish remix)

Written By: Kiril Valeri

LIVING IS BELIEVING feat. DJ Cooh

Big "fish" eating the small "fish",
while the small "fish" are running from "big" fish,
that is your life... just goes,
round and round it goes...

Whenever you feel down...
Anytime I feel so alone...
Don`t believe...

Living is believing,
living is breathing for you,
living is forgiving,
living is bleeding for you...
