Lyrics

Moves the Time - The Dance

Written By: Little David

She has only one way
She´s moving closer
You´d better lay your hands over me (bend down on your knees)
You must adore her,

...adore the way
She moves the time, steals the weather...

No shoes for this dance
But lights upon our hands
Glories over the heads
Stops in the dance
She moves the time, Steals the rainbow...

You must be floating on the ocean
You should be swimming in devotion (2X)

She has only one way
She´s getting closer
You´d better bend down on your knees
and bless a clever, clever man

| She moves the time, Steals the weather...
| (She) moves the time, Steals the weather
| Does she move the time?
| She moves the time, getting higher
| Does she move the tide?

Anything you do
A step to the right (into you)
The point between your eyes
Oh, body swayed to the music, to the music

Oh, chestnut tree
Are you the leaf, the blossom or the bole?
How do we know the dancer from the dance?

| She moves the time, Steals the weather...
| (She) moves the time, Steals the weather
| Does she move the time?
| She moves the time, getting higher
| Does she move the tide?

Oh, my apple tree
Are you the leaf, the blossom or the fruit?
How do we know the dancer from the dance?

Anything you do
A step to the right (into you)
The point between your eyes
Oh, body swayed to the music, into the dance

Once upon a time, blue...

Written By: Little David

I see another whale
another dove, right above
so please take a picture

A crow and a cobra
A jay, a hummingbird
take another picture

The rocket man is flying now to mars
Although the Earth is warming, getting dry
once upon a time blue
now it´s flooding, burning, melting
You wanna it black
and I want her blue!

the dromedaries fled to the desert night
the lions jump in the ocean to cool down
once upon a time blue
global warming, I am warning you
I want her green and I want her blue!

Lie, lie, lies...

| And like a tiger
| I´m flying (going) back to you
| an eagle high in the sky
| diving from the blue
|
| A little bee without honey
| zoom, zoom, zoom (looking for food)
| until I see another flower blooms
| A dream come true

I see a barracuda
a condor right above
so please take a picture

a frog in Opa-Locka
the Lamb is an Afghan one
so pleeeease take a picture

Oh little worm that flies into the night
the crimson joy
is clouding here my eyes
once upon a time blue
Earth is flooding, burning, melting
You wanna it black
but I want her blue!

| And like a tiger
| I´m going back to you
| an eagle high in the sky
| diving from the blue
|
| A little bee without honey
| zoom, zoom, zoom (looking for food)
| until I see another flower blooms
| A dream come true

| I´m going back to you
| an eagle high in the sky
| diving from the blue
|
| A little bee without honey
| zoom, zoom, zoom
| until I see another flower blooms
| A dream come true

and all the oceans, I sunned them with smiles...

Arabella

Written By: Little David

It started not so well
Could you help
it´s a childbirth
and kicking on the grass
there´s a blue bird

Hiding in a shell
there´s a rose seed
named Arabella

I can see the love that´s
on your face
I can get enough with you (2x)

[How it aches]

And it looks like crying
when every single second
takes my life

it looks like dying
when every single second
takes a lifetime

Are we living when apart?
Are we living when we´re apart?

Candle Of Thoughts

Written By: Little David

May I dry your eyes
full of tears

Should I recognize
the words you say,
the words I hear

I was afraid to go
and leave you
I was afraid to know...

(Do you feel) that I can´t reply
I´m only listening
One eye shines in the sky
looking through me

It wasn´t plain to show
how you share love with me
There wasn´t blame you know
so believe me

Confusion, what´s going on my mind
I can´t understand why you look
so small

The more I get high in the sky
it seems that your fire is
putting out (putting out)

May I touch your heart
full of fears
don´t you worry about
what they think of me
(Don´t you worry)

I have no faith, you know
since you took my hope away
I have no faith, you know
so believe me
Don´t you believe me?

Confusion, what´s blowing in my mind
I can´t understand why you look
so small

The more I get high in the sky
it seems that your fire is putting out
(putting out)

Memories holding so tight
don´t let me go
I hold the candle of thoughts in the night
now it´s burning me

City, Suns, Heart

Written By: Little David

Far away and getting lonely
City Sun's heart, time to look around

I'm looking for the flowers here,
inside me
I've been wasting time

Don't know where they are...
And you're worrying about probabilities
Don't know where they are...

It's so hard to keep them moving (turning)
On a child's heart, time to fool around
Looking for the prayers here inside me
I've been wasting time

Don't know where they are
And you're worrying about probabilities
Don't know where they are...

Is it time to write another song?

Far away,
I'd rather be by your side (your side)
But it's a long way...

You'd better believe in my eyes (mind). (repeat)
Better believe in my...

When I had to loose
and you had to choose
Sure it was the wrong way

All I want to know
Which way to turn, to go...
I'll meet you half of the way.
(Sure it will be the right way)

And you're worrying about probabilities...
...and you´re talking about me...
and my melodies
