Lyrics

Can only be me

Written By: Manuela Hofer

Can only be me

I'm tired of these guessing games,
so tired of these battles of suspence.
It seems these wounds will never mend
We're headed towards the bitter end

I can't be the one that you
want me to be
I can only be me
and I can't be the one that you
hoped I would be
I can only be me
I can only be me

Do you still remember
do you still resist
Do you still surrender
waiting for a kiss?

You search for perfection.
You search for the truth.
No room for exeptions.
Only the best will do

I can't be the one that you
want me to be
I can only be me
and I can't be the one that you
hoped I would be
I can only be me
I can only be me

%Can you see me?
Can you see? %

I'm tired of these guessing games,
so tired of these battles of suspence.
It seems these wounds will never mend.
We're headed towards the bitter end.

I can't be the one that you
want me to be
I can only be me
and I can't be the one that you
hoped I would be
I can only be me
I can only be me
I can only be me
I can only be me

Had to let you go

Written By: Manuela Hofer

Had to let you go

Were you afraid
to let me know
were you afraid
that I would go?
Did you feel,
and was it love?

If you were sure
that we were right
If I was true
and you would fight
who knows were we'd be.

I had to let you go,
cause I needed more than you would give.
I had to let go,
but who knows were we'd be.

I close my eyes,
and try to see,
did you rebel
to win over me,
when you held back
and hided away?

I had to let you go,
cause I needed more than you would give.
I had to let go,
but who knows were we'd be.

Ihad to let go,
I had to leave
I needed more than you would give
I needed more,than you would give

I had to let you go,
cause I needed more than you would give.
I had to let go,
but who knows were we'd be.
I had to let you go,
cause I needed more than you would give.
I had to let go,
but who knows were we'd be.

The Sea

Written By: Manuela Hofer

Lay me down
into the sea.
Cool,blue water
embracing me.
Lay me down
into the sea.
This is were I want to be.

Lay me down
into the sea.
This is were I want to be.

Let me escape
into the rain,
cleanse my soul,
wash away
the pain.

Lay me down
into the sea.
This is were I want to be.

Lay me down
into the sea.
This is were I want to be.

Cool blue velvet
covering me.
Sensual waves
surrounding me.

Gently and tenderly
mercyless sea.
Caressing and embracing me.

Lay me down
into the sea.
Lay me down
into the sea.
Cool blue water
embracing me.

Lay me down
into the sea.
This is were I want to be.
