Wings across the world You have made me strong Cause you’ve done me wrong Now it’s time to part and move on Love has kept me tied To my darker side I have lived a lie far too long But when the tears I cry and all the fears pass by you’ll see I’ll rise like a phoenix from the fire on my wings reaching out higher I will fly across the sky And maybe I won’t return ‘cause I’ll fly on my wings across the world ‘cause I’ll fly on my wings across the world Your love was my home Your love was my throne Your love was my safe ship at sea Now it’s broken down Almost made me drown Kept me stranded lonely on shore But when the tears I cry and all the fears pass by you’ll see I’ll rise like a phoenix from the fire With my wings reaching out higher I will fly across the sky And maybe I won’t return ‘cause I’ll fly on my wings across the world ‘cause I’ll fly on my wings across the world and maybe I won’t return cause I’ll fly on my wings across the world cause I’ll fly on my wings across the world cause I’ll fly on my wings across the world cause I’ll fly on my wings across the world – the world

FOREVER BE LOVE Love is the essence of life The song of creation It is the power in the seed The juice in a green leaf Love is the glory of the rising sun The gentle caress of silence Love is a warm coat in the darkness The sound of a bird in the desert Love is the translucent embrace of an angel A hand on a wounded heart A bandage on a torn soul Love is in the eye of the storm In the music of the rain In the heart of the earth, the ocean In the depth of the skies, the galaxies Love is the search of love for itself The longing for a miracle Love is the courage to forgive The never-ending call for compassion An all-pervading fragrance of kindness and joy Love wants to give To grow Through you and me And forever be LOVE

Swear 03:43
Swear Did I hear you whisper in the wind Did I see your shadow in the mist Did your image float above the riverbank Did I feel you swiftly brush my side Somehow I could swear, yes, I’m sure, that you’re still here with me Somehow I could swear, swear that you’re still here with me During teatime on a rainy afternoon Suddenly the sun decides to shine During lonely hours in the moonlight Suddenly my water tastes like wine Somehow I could swear, oh, I’m sure, that you’re still here with me Somehow I could swear, swear that you’re still here with me Magic cat is crossing and it has your eyes Magic bird is singing and it sings your song Magic bee is humming on your favorite flower Magic bells are ringing on and on and on and on and on Somehow I could swear, yes, I’m sure, that you’re still here with me Somehow I could swear, swear that you’re still here with me Swear, swear, swear that you’re still here With me

We are the ones I long for you to live In a world that is at peace I long for you to live I wish for you to feel In a state of being at ease I wish for you to feel Both your worlds could be as one It’s as easy said as done If you wanna be as one Just drop your guns and walk and walk and walk ahead with open arms Then spread your wings around the ones that cry for help, just spread your wings //: We are the ones to make the world be as one We are the ones To make us one :// I long for you to be In a place that is at peace I long for you to be I wish for you to clear all your vision from your fears try drying each others tears Both your worlds can be as one It’s as easy said as done If you wanna be as one Put off your shoes and fly away with friend and foe, just break the rules And sing this song just sing and sing and sing along just sing this song //: We are the ones to make the world be as one We are the ones To make us one :// We are the ones

Born For Love Your demon just wants to sway His crooked scythe, his metal blade, and cast his darkest spells on those who won’t obey There’s something I ‘ve got to say Just simply go, go far away Go to another place to play your wicked game Cause my heart is born to be free And it won’t live under your regime My heart is born for love And any less just won’t ever do Abysses on your master chart I pray, pray for your heart pray for your sunken soul to find its higher goal Remember the bigger scheme The hidden plan behind the screen The deeper realms of life and let me be Cause my heart is born to be free And it can’t live under your regime My heart is born for love And any less just won’t ever do

Jewels 04:37
Jewels you dreamt me a rainbow and bright butterflies and me on a golden flower floating by you dreamt me some laughter you dreamt me the sun you dreamt me the wind in my hair and good times to come You’re close to me You believe in me And when you dream You touch my fantasy Oh if you knew What you mean to me And the light you shed Onto my reality I’m collecting your dreams like jewels And hide them away in my head So one day I might just find them When I feel upset In times of change when the wind blows cold I can hear your childlike laughter strong and bold When I feel sad You get me through The sun will shine again And the sky will be blue I’m collecting your dreams like jewels And hide them away in my head So one day I might just find them When I feel upset I’m collecting your dreams like jewels And hide them away in my head So one day I might just find them When I feel upset When I feel upset I’m collecting your dreams like jewels … When I feel upset - when I’m lonely and upset

Please 03:31
Please Hear you hear me Heal you heal me from soul to soul When I receive your little hand That speaks more than a thousand words I know that heaven is when you are close to me Please know as long as I’m alive I need to know that you are fine And that you’d always trust to put your hand in mine I’ll walk on any road with you I’ll fly through any sky with you I’ll dive into the deepest ocean blues with you If you don’t have a wing or shoe I’ll share my wings and shoes with you Or I will carry you until the end of time

Show me, show me your face Give me, give me the faith Show me, show me that you believe in me Like I believed in you until today Show me, show me your soul Give me, give me some hope So I can laugh and cry until I’m warm inside Until I trust again like in the early days When I’d know love is real Show me, show me your heart Give me, give me a new start Show me, show me that you believe in me Like I believed in you until today Show me, show me the gentle way Give me, give me a sunray So I can smile again and see the light of day And trust again like in the early days When I’d feel love is real Show Show me your heart Show Show me your love Show Show me your heart Your love Forgive me, forgive me my pleas Forgive me, forgive me my doubt in thee Feels like you betrayed me, failed to protect me Left me to drown and simply call it destiny How can your mercy seem to be so very merciless How can your words sound oh so sweet yet taste so bitter How can your love seem like a million miles away Show me your face, show me Show Show me your heart Show Show me your love Show Show me your heart Your love Why don’t you show me your heart, why don’t you show me your love, your love

1000 Stars 03:24
The night is dark without you The night is cold without you The night is long without you The night is silent without you The night it sighs without you The night it cries without you The night it falls without you The night is endless without you I must live without you but I will dream about you Until I have dreamt a 1000 stars into your heart I must live without you but I will dream about you Until we will reunite behind the frozen sky oh if I could - I surely would caress your pale and gentle face oh I would swim into the pools of your spellbinding eyes You let the night shelter your soul Now I will shelter it in mine And keep you safe inside my mind ‘till the end of time I must live without you but I will dream about you Until I have dreamt a 1000 stars into your heart I must live without you but I will dream about you Until we will reunite behind the frozen sky Until we will reunite inside a thousand stars

You have told me why princesses cannot fly You have told me that a witch must always have an on-off switch And I really tried - oh with all my might To believe your stories ‘till I fin’lly saw the light Princesses really fly and witches really cry and I can fly to the moon and the sunrise to touch and tame the fire The flames in the sky With a rainstorm rolling down from my crown I’ll water the roots of my heart I’ll water the roots of my soul Grow a bed of flowers, grow a magic garden right across the universe Freedom is a gift we all need to keep sacred till the end of time you can have your views but you can’t reduce my existence to your simple lie Princesses really fly and witches really cry and I can fly to the moon and the sunrise to touch and tame the fire The flames in the sky With a rainstorm rolling down from my crown I’ll water the roots of my heart I’ll water the roots of my soul Grow a bed of flowers, grow a magic garden right across the universe Princesses of all kinds will sing a song Witches of all kinds will sing along Dance around the fire In my magic garden right across the universe And one day you may sail to our shore Looking for a bit of something more Then you’ll see us flying In my magic garden right across the universe

How do you find your way Inside a thorny jungle How do you find your way Out of a battlefield How do you find your way Inside a burning castle How do you find your way Out of the raging sea Auhauah Adopt the vision of the blind Auah Question your own mind Auah And hear the echo from above Auah To Love or not to Love To love or not to love That is the question How do you turn the wheel When all the sparks are dying How do you make a move When all your muscles freeze How do you tell the truth When there is no one listening How do you quit the game When it is playing you Auhauah Adopt the vision of the blind Auah Question your own mind Auah And hear the echo from above Auah To Love or not to Love

Love 03:59
It was late when we met on the hills by the lake when I looked in your eyes and I soon recognized That the love in our hearts is the reason we are here today to celebrate The beauty of life, the wind in the trees and the whisper at night that sets our hearts free And the fine borderline between your soul and mine is a means to find our way to this land of Love Like a blossoming rose, like a poem so old Ancient wisdom arose in our minds to behold Our path to the shore, our way to the land So we all can see our reason to be is Love And we floated along as the owl sang its song Flying out in the night through a rainbow of light And we merged with the sound of a star falling down from the sky And made our love rise up high Love

Winter Days 05:04
Cold winter days are warm Spicy cakes and steaming wine Hot chocolate under glowing skies Sparkles in the trees and in the snow Glitter in the air and on the road and in our homes Tales of brotherhood and peace Oh let them be more than a fantasy Let it be warm for the ones in need Open the door Let winter days be warm Aaaah Warm summer days are cool Fancy ice cream by the pool Holidays ‘cause its too hot for school Blossoms in the trees and in your hair Music in the park and echoes of laughter everywhere Songs of brotherhood and peace Oh let them be more than a chanted dream Let it be true for the ones in need Don’t be a fool Let summer days be cool Aaaah Open the door - let summer days be cool Open the door - let winter days be warm

about

Every song on this album addresses a different aspect of love from a different emotional plane or mindset. The songs travel musically through various genres, from indie rock to soundtrack, from electronic or classical cross over to singer songwriter, all bound together by the underlying theme BORN FOR LOVE. The common denominator are my vocals and my violins. Some songs are as old as my kittens, others as old as my beloved children.
Listen to the whole album and you may find your favorite sonic companion for your own specific situation (topic related songs in brackets).
If you are...
on the verge of standing up for yourself, about to go your own way or leave an abusive relationship or situation (Born For Love, Wings Across The World),
going through a phase of loss and mourning, remembering a loved one (Swear, A 1000 Stars), searching for higher love (Forever Be Love, Show Me Your Heart, To Love Or Not To Love), feeling unconditional love, empathy, compassion for children, animals, the world (Please, Forever Be Love), love for peace, humanity (We Are The Ones, Winter Days, To Love Or Not To Love, Forever Be Love), letting go and stepping into self love (Born For Love, Forever Be Love, To Love Or Not To Love) or asserting your own girl self (Princesses Really Fly, Sunflowers), looking for real joyful love (Sunflowers), feeling romantic love (Love, Jewels) or the freedom aspect of (self)love (Born for Love, Wings Across The World, Princesses Really fly, Free)
- this album offers you a musical journey that takes you through it all.
I would love to hear which songs are your favorites and why.
