Darius Mileris Nojus on his music:
"Music is the way of communication with people. You want anyone to hear the words you singing, and the hope appears that those words can be helpful to someone. Besides, everyone wants to immortalize himself - to make a stroke on the Stone of Life. We do not seek everlasting life, we want to give a sense to what we are doing... There is such a little and great wish that people come to our concerts, understand us, and be sincere like we are."

Lyrics

When I`m down

Written By: Darius Mileris Nojus

When i`m down

You
You wanna know where`s the way
Should i say
Should i feel something else
If you`re here
Here i am
Wright and wrong
Life is sad
Way you walk
Way you talk
Drives me mad
I never knew never saw
You`re so close
Far away
I can see in your eyes
In the sky somewhere high
What you think
Then you cry when i fly

Will you hold me
Will you save me
When i`m down
Will you find a place for me
When i`m down

Hey, This place is killing me
I can`t wait to see
I can`t wait to go
Into the sea
Into the place i`ve never been
I never saw never knew
You`re so close
Far away
I can see in your eyes
In the sky somewhere high
What you think
Then you cry when i fly

Will you hold me
Will you save me
When i`m down
Will you find a place for me
When i`m down
...

Fake it.

Written By: Darius Mileris Nojus

Fake it

I draw a picture
The river is wide
I swim til I drown
And the wind`s by my side

One more thing to do
One more night to wait
And I never knew
How long it would take

To find true sacred love
To sea a brighter day
All I`ve ever wanted
To live it my way

Keep me closer
Stay away
My time is up
I`m here to stay

Fake it if you want me to touch you
Fake it if you want me to run
Fake it if you want me to trust you
But I don`t know if I can

(c) 2002 Darius Mileris NOJUS

Wounded in you

Written By: Darius Mileris Nojus

The wound in you

Disappear with the night and be quiet
For my soul and what I don`t hear
There is a lot of fun around
But what is it?

Give me hope I`ll die with it together
Give me voice I`ll say who I hate
Take everything that I had
What I`ve lived from

When the fear is over do you know
When I went in fire did you go
You and I aren`t foes
But we aren`t friends

Heavy hands droop down and I am quiet
I am tired from the fight
Is it true that freedom
Is so real

Follow my glance
You`re lightning to me
I`ll be wounded in you
In you...

Choice

Written By: Darius Mileris Nojus

Choice

With a lot of ways to choose from
She goes
Love and sadness die
With a lot of days to choose from
She cries
When she takes that flight

What do I know
What do I have to say
Just close your eyes and leave
What do I feel
What do I have to choose
Forever stays with me

With a lot of friends to choose from
She tells
Only one name
With a lot of life to choose from
She hopes
Everything stays the same

What do I know
What do I have to say
Just close your eyes and leave
What do I feel
What do I have to choose
Forever stays with me

With a lot of places to choose from
She hates
Only one place
With a lot of time to choose from
She waits
Puts on brave face

What do I know
What do I have to say
Just close your eyes and leave
What do I feel
What do I have to choose
Forever stays with me

With a lot of joy to choose from
She talks
Never raises her voice
With alot of pain to choose from
She laughts
Whe she makes her choice

What do I know
What do I have to say
Just close your eyes and leave
What do I feel
What do I have to choose
Forever stays with me
What do I know
What do I have to say
Just close your eyes and leave
What do I feel
What do I have to choose
Forever stays with me

Inside of me

Written By: Darius Mileris Nojus

Inside of me

I was walking down the street
Looking for the day
Looking for some sweet
Never see the same

I was listening to the Sting
Faling Mercury
Looking for strange thing
Inside of me

What if I love you
What if I`ll stay with you tonight
What if I`ll touch you
What if I`ll kiss you goodbye

I see the world crying
It`s raining. Am I wrong?
I see shadows diving
I`m looking for some strong

I see the world flying
Falling down on me
I see love dieing
Inside of me

I was so small at that time
So big on that day
Black T-shirts “World is mine”
Never think the same

Save Everything

Written By: Darius Mileris Nojus

Save everything

Like the moon above
Like sky`s darkness
I`m coming back and stop
Near memory sadness

You got me on my knees
Step away tomorrow
I`ll never share my dreams
Like yesterday`s sorrow

I knew what would be
Maybe someone sang
Maybe someone died
In the foreign land

In the dark sky
Among rain of tears
Souls are rising high
Washing their face

It`s time to go
I must be on time
Time`s running so
I can not hide

Save everything
Everything I gave
Something not enough
Something too much

Sometimes I feel inside
I just let it go
Somebody tell me why
Cause I don`t know

Till we have some hope
Till we are the same
Yuo`re laughing I don`t know
I don`t wanna play this game

Secret Place

Written By: Darius Mileris Nojus

Secret place

I see us running to the fields
I see us disappear among the flowers
You say I play this game so well
Well I can teach you if you wait
Just wait another hour

Just follow words and keep your eyes on me
Don’t let me slip away and loose each other
I find it difficult to be myself and be
You ask me go this way or another

I’m taking you into the secret place
Behind the walls we fall two hundred feet
Without a single step we’re in a different space
What else is on the way we can not see

Copyright © 2007 Darius Mileris Nojus

Wait for me

Written By: Darius Mileris Nojus

Wait for me

In this empty room
Where is not much space
There is kind of feeling
All these days

All i know is madness
All i see is grey
My way is to go
Your to stay

Wait for me
In this summer day
Tomorrow morning
I go away

Life will go on
But my time will stop
That time I`ve waisted
Waisted a lot

I knock on your door
And I look inside
There is so much silence
But no light

Will I be in danger
Will I be in love
I`ll see you in the sky
Shinning above

Wait for me
In this summer day
Tomorrow morning
I go away

Life will go on
But my time is gone
That time I`ve waisted
Waisted a lot

All I Know

Written By: Darius Mileris Nojus

All I Know

I`m not alone there`s a lot of us
With faces hidden inside
Doors are closed in front of us
We all would like to hide

I know and you know too
What I`m feeling when It`s empty around
But if we want to find each other
All of us must be found

You`re with me I`m with them
Time is rising them in pain
Maybe they want to live quiet
But cops are mixing up their game

Only the wind, thoughts
Road we all go
Only the hands will warm
Now it's all I know

The River

Written By: Darius Mileris Nojus

The River

I wonder how could I get away
How could i get away with this
But the streets are telling me why
You tell me why I’m here

The moon is right here by my side
The moon is everything I need
I see you walkin` into the night
You tell me what do you need

But the river is deep
Can you swim can you reach the shore
As the wind in the night
Can I stay a little more
I wanna stay a little more

I wonder why I wonder when
I wonder where I lost your faith
How far away is it again
There’s nothing you can say

But the river is deep
Can you swim can you reach the shore
As the wind in the night
Can I stay a little more
I wanna stay a little more
