"Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.."- Antoine de Saint Exupéry

Poets of the Fall – Where We Draw the Line

“The dance of flames and shadows in the street
Make poetry nobody’s ever heard
The weight of lonelinesss stands on your feet
The cage already there around the bird”


Black & White

“I really do believe that love’s forever
When it takes a hold of you,
it won’t let you go
And it can pull a broken heart together
And just in case you’re
troubled, I want you to know

Even angels cry
If you don’t believe my words
Just look up at the sky
Do you really think it’s rain?
It’s nothing more than heaven’s pain
Even angels cry”


Revolverheld – Die beste Zeit deines Lebens / The best time of your life

“Everything just circles around itself
The world in which you fall again and again
And when you think you can’t go on anymore
The next step is often not so hard
It’s often easier than you think
If only you stay true to your will
You can achieve more than you believe
Even when it takes away your strength
This here is the best time of your life
What are waiting for in vain?

The time ticks
Like a bomb before the explosion
Come
If you want it you can do it

You listen to Nirvana to cry
Come stack away the old photos
Paint new pictures in your heart
For short while just forget the old pain
It’s not forbidden to stand still
But to look ahead again
Enjoy every single moment
Make way for your talent

You are grieving for the old times
You are alone and believe in nothing anymore
Hope is far away for you
Feelings only on the internet
Every day is the same for you
Everything gray in gray and without aim
You lose heart with every small thing that happens
But after the ebb comes also the tide”

God,
grant my hollow soul
my black heart
my lost hope
Your light.

Amin.

PAIN feat. Anette Olzon – Follow Me

“Good Luck has never been My Friend
I’ve always been the fool
Please don’t follow shadows of mine
’cause the time is running out for me
I walk in the path of a misfits blood
no compass can stare my way
no light at the end of the tunnel
and time is running out for me

no gold at the end of the rainbow
no high hopes, dreams deceive

Follow me
the trouble seems to always wanna
Follow me
It has let me down so far so why dont you
Follow me
the troubele seems to always wanna
Follow me
It has let me down so far so why dont you
Follow me

I walk in the Path of a misfits blood.
No compass can stare my way
No light at the end of the tunnel
the time is running out for me

no gold at the end of the rainbow
no high hopes, dreams deceive

Follow me
the trouble seems to always wanna
Follow me
It has let me down so far so why dont you
Follow me
the troubele seems to always wanna
Follow me
It has let me down so far so why dont you
Follow me

Follow me
the trouble seems to always wanna
Follow me
It has let me down so far so why dont you
Follow me
the troubele seems to always wanna
Follow me
It has let me down so far so why dont you
Follow me”


Saddest Poem, Pablo Neruda

“I can write the saddest poem of all tonight.
Write, for instance: “The night is full of stars,
and the stars, blue, shiver in the distance.”
The night wind whirls in the sky and sings.
I can write the saddest poem of all tonight.
I loved her, and sometimes she loved me too.
On nights like this, I held her in my arms.
I kissed her so many times under the infinite sky.
She loved me, sometimes I loved her.
How could I not have loved her large, still eyes?
I can write the saddest poem of all tonight.
To think I don’t have her. To feel that I’ve lost her.
To hear the immense night, more immense without her.
And the poem falls to the soul as dew to grass.
What does it matter that my love couldn’t keep her.
The night is full of stars and she is not with me.
That’s all. Far away, someone sings.
Far away.My soul is lost without her.
As if to bring her near, my eyes search for her.
My heart searches for her and she is not with me…”

Brittle mists rising from the battered soul
Long forgotten paths out of the night
Under a heavy sky
Endless solitude skyline
