Did you ever dream about being somebody else And looking at your former self wondering who you are? It’s like watching a movie and seeing yourself grow While repeating those mistakes again and again I’m growing old but I still feel like I’m stuck here with nowhere to hide I’m growing old but I still need to say: It’s okay and I don’t need to run. You say hold your head up high but I think you are just pretending to look good and so self-confident. Now I see it’s the time to stop complaining about me It’s so easy to fall back down as I always did before But now I see the time has come to start with this now. You’re growing old but you haven’t learned a thing I think you are still running from yourself I’m growing old but I still need to say: It’s okay and I’ll find comfort in myself. Now I see the time has come to write a new chapter It’s so easy to scroll back to page one But now I will set it straight and start with this now. Your sadness – is holding me back but I will never be the same Your pulling - please let me go cause I will never be the same

Sojourner 05:01
With all the lights out there’s no need to rush Breathe in and slowly breathe out You keep your head down and you don’t dare to look up Sink into the dark and let yourself go And all our same fears. There’s no need to excuse Breathe in and slowly breathe out We’re all stuck in here and don’t dare to believe Sink into the dark and let go again Don’t you know I was here before? Will we ever meet? Will we ever be one? Everything is black but I keep following this path Have you ever dreamt of losing yourself? Have you ever felt this desperate state? I got no answer but I still stick to my hope I’ll keep running away with no look back Your words fade away but I move on I’ll keep running away ain’t got nothing to lose My feet hurt so much but I won’t stop I whisper your name but nothing comes out My pulse beats so hard until it stops. I arrive where I’ve been before The same pictures appear – will I ever see clear? But with my blindfold on I keep following this path. Have you ever dreamt of letting it all go? Have you ever felt this desperate state? It’s just a memory that I will overcome With all the lights out there’s no need to rush Breathe in and slowly breathe out I whisper your name but nothing comes out My pulse beats so hard until it stops. I start holding my breath, I’m so insecure Try to catch your words but they were slowly fading away.

Walk with me into the dark, let go of what you’re going through Forget about the things behind and get us out of here right now Dark and dusty all around, grab your boots and run We’re not falling! we’re not falling! So what’s the deal if there’s no point of return? Grab my hand and I will get you out of here Follow me, forget about your worries Together we have a chance to get us out of here. Is this the way to go? I try to remember what I used to know. But this voice keeps on whispering in my ear and tells me to run faster. My memories slowly fade away and I forget to remember. Am I falling? Am I falling? So what’s the deal if there’s no point of return? Grab my hand and I will get you out of here It’s so cold in this place and I’ll get you out of here. Follow me, forget about your worries Together we have a chance to get us out of here.

The ones we cared about were all going home and my heart’s still aching I feel so sorry for myself but swimming in this sea of self-pity scratches off my skin. I don’t dare to say it out loud. Why do my whispers leave my mouth unheard? Only at night I feel like I’m invisible. And there’s no light to illuminate my wounds. And everything I do is blame you for being deaf instead of raising my voice. All the parts of my body move back and forth. I don’t wanna play this game anymore. I hesitate too much because I feel so insecure. I’m here and you are there I’m thinking of all the times we’ve had So sad, are we able to forget? What can we expect from a life like this? If everything we hold is gone? Too bad, we are not able to forget. Only at night I feel like I’m invisible. And there’s no light to illuminate my wounds. And everything I do is blame you for being deaf instead of raising my voice. All the parts of my body move back and forth.
