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.

Track Name: Wings Across The World
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
Track Name: Forever Be Love
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
Track Name: Swear
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
Track Name: We Are The Ones
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
Track Name: Sunflowers
Sunflowers

Roses should be history
Customized sweet hypocricy
Blood and guilt
Cold intimacy
Roses red
They just sting and lie before they die

Got to be sunflowers
Just give me sunflowers
Got to be sunflowers
Just give me sunflowers

A rose is red
Violets are blue
But the truth
What’s the color of truth for you

Got to be sunflowers
Just give me sunflowers
Got to be sunflowers
Just give me sunflowers

Passion in hot showers
On a bed of sunflowers
Passion in hot showers
On a bed of sunflowers

I just wanna hold you hold kiss you kiss you love you love you
Sunflowers hot showers sunflowers sunflowers

Got to be got to be got to be got to be sun sun sun sun sun!!!
Track Name: Born For Love
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
Track Name: Jewels
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
Track Name: Please
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
Track Name: Show Me Your Heart
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
Track Name: 1000 Stars
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
Track Name: Princesses Really Fly
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
Track Name: To Love Or Not To Love
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
Track Name: Love
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
Track Name: Winter Days
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
