The Go-Between (Song and Lyrics)

Please share your comments to song and lyrics

Popular download and streaming links


She handed me a ticket
To watch the show for free
She knew I was under construction
She said that was okay
She said there's space in the middle
For a go-between

Now the waiter looked nervous
Knew things were going down
Sat by his favorite painting
With the eyes looking down
And she looked worried
'Cause mercury's in retrograde

So please don't panic
Love is a gamble they say
It's just a four-letter word
With a lot of pranks and escapades

I thought the party was over
My weariness is taking over
I started filling the evening
With banter and wit
She said here comes the soup
And you better taste it
I said 'oh my God'
I just can't believe it
And she said 'what'
There's frolic on the jukebox
She said 'No-one in this world
Should have to dance alone'

So please don't panic
Love is a gamble they say
It's just a four-letter word
With a lot of pranks and escapades

Now the place is getting empty
And the beer was pouring out slow
I swear I just saw Marco Polo
Along with Van Gogh
The next day I felt so low
'Cause I left without my favorite hat
And she was mad
Another stain in her Cadillac
But I could not regain my strength
To tell her I needed her back
She said 'better luck next time'
'Cause the game is over

So please don't panic
It's just not the season
Love is a four-letter word
With no rhyme or reason

Endless Skyway (Song and Lyrics)

How do you like this song?

Popular download and streaming links


There’s a lot of people talking
About what I do not know
Are they waiting for redemption
Or are they just waiting for a call?
I look forward to the woods
For a little peace of mind
It’s getting harder and harder
To live off the line.

All these trials of endurance
The hustler overworked
The thief over the orphan
I keep hitting the same old walls.

Day after day
They call it the same old thing
The endless skyway
That leads to everything.

Lo and behold!
It's not as hard as you think
There is room for vision
With the eyes of a child.

You can dance, you can sing
You can do most anything


And I keep painting pictures
With words and sounds I've never heard
I wish a song
Could still change the world - oh yes it can!

-Chorus 3X-

Dare To Dream (Song and Lyrics)

Your thoughts and comments about song and lyrics?

Popular download and streaming links


The moon is drunk
Filled with big ideas
The moving of the wheel
Takes the sound of the machine
Time is gonna turn on itself
But the clock-maker
He’s got it figured out

That old restless bird’s
Got a lot to say
Just singing his song
Both night and day
Throw a penny in the lake
And dare to dream
The water may be choppy
But don’t hesitate

So why aren’t we singing?
Why aren’t we dancing?
Why aren’t we living like we should
If they can do it
So can I
So tired of singing the blues

The sun never hurt anyone
Who wasn’t looking
Some folks may disappoint you
But it evens out in the end
And it's hard to say why my pen is so heavy
It fell asleep when I wasn’t watching
And every year they bring the farmer
The latest piece of gear
But he knows what’s right for the earth
And the red-eyed captain whispers to himself
An ace is still an ace
And king’s still gonna wear his crown

(Chorus 3 times)

Pre-order of New CD Now Open

THANK YOU, dear fans and supporters. You have helped us come this far!

After producing two EPs, Lay Your Burden Down and Like A Bird in the last two years, we are excited to embark on our first full-length album project. We need to do this because the songs we have written since our last studio recording have touched a lot of people. We repeatedly receive requests for songs like Topography, Long Live Your Tomorrows and A Most Curious Thing in a recorded form. And this is what we want to deliver: a beautiful recording of the best and most sought-after of our new songs.

The ten-day-long recording session will be with Henry Hirsch at his Waterfront Studios in Hudson NY. He is an acclaimed recording engineer and producer, having landed many hits with greats like Lenny Kravitz, Mick Jagger and Madonna. Totally exciting, isn't it?

First day of recording is December 14th, 2014. CD release date will be in Spring 2015.


It's pay-what-you-like (donation-based), with the suggested minimums and rewards-packages below:

$1+ for the album download
