Shake It 03:32
Shake it Fill it up till the glass is full Then drink it out and start all over again What went wrong and what is gone? Who’s that fiend behind my idleness? Raising flags Banging drums Screaming loud There’s nothing here to lose Don’t forget to rattle and shake it Picking dreams regain my life Doesn’t matter if I make it or not The shift is done, so am I Is this what I’ve been working on lately? Raising hands Blowing horns Shouting out There’s nothing here to lose Don’t forget to rattle and shake it Chasing demons in my head Lay down guns It’s more than whining on your knees Will you stand up and run? Raising flags Banging drums Screaming loud There’s nothing here to lose Life oh' it ain't smooth But don't forget to rattle and shake it Written by Reto Burrell

Chasing The Wild Bring down the curtain With a punch in the face A couple more bruises Won't kick me out of the race If you wanna live it's gotta hurt sometimes Getting off on the pain to know you're still alive Chasing the wild Diving into the new Finding the light Treasuring the gem of truth The torch is still burning Fiery heart's in vain Getting rid of the yearning By kissing the flame So let's start a war just to make up again There's a new beginning after every end Chasing the wild Diving into the new Finding the light Treasuring the gem of truth Chasing the wild You know I still care Switching the sides Just take me anywhere So let's start a war just to make up again There's a new beginning after every end Chasing the wild Diving into the new Finding the light Treasuring the gem of truth Chasing the wild You know I still care Switching the sides Just take me anywhere Written by Reto Burrell

How Many Doubts? Haven’t we been down this road before? Sinners and saints fighting for more Wicked games of who blames who I’m stuck in this cold, lost world Though I know it’s just the place you leave me now 20 years can’t bring it down Another 20 more hanging ‘round Love is strong, true but fragile You can point all your guns at me Shoot ‘em hard but you won’t make things disappear How many doubts Does it take to kill it all? How many clouds Before you block the sun above? Turn the wheel Bleed and feel Life is loud You can’t stop the sound How many doubts Does it take to kill it all? How many clouds Before you block the sun above? Written by Reto Burrell

Swimming In Stars Can’t believe this is real Soft as air, strong as steel Guess we took the right turn off An’ crashed into love There’s no book that can tell you how There’s no signs beyond the clouds Loosen strings, let ‘em fly Down the milky way Yes it’s true this is crazy But feels so amazing Can’t tell in words Nor sing in songs It feels too good Swimming in stars Don’t shed a tear to the earth down there Drifting into the atmosphere Grab my hand, hold on tight An’ don’t let go Yes it’s true this is crazy But feels so amazing Can’t tell in words Nor sing in songs It feels too good Swimming in stars Nothing’s ever gonna tie it down That’s for sure Never ever wanna turn around Except for more Yes it’s true this is crazy But feels so amazing Can’t tell in words Nor sing in songs It feels too good Yes it’s true it’s crazy Feels so good so amazing Off the ground Nowhere bound It just feels right Outta sound Upside down It feels too good Off the ground Nowhere bound It just feels right Swimming in stars Written by Reto Burrell

Ticket To Fly Here’s day one of the rest of my life Spying down a gun barrel of my past Somebody gimme something new To lift and stride and swing This one feels good for sure, for real A one way to get me outta here No need to pack a suitcase now Won’t matter what rags I’m wearing So hey, gimme a ticket to fly A new pair of wings made of bulletproof wire Gimme a ticket to fly There’s a pact between the mind and body Skinny deeds won’t ease the miles in between Nothing can really stop me now Kick the motor to a kill So hey, gimme a ticket to fly A new pair of wings made of bulletproof wire Gimme a ticket to fly Airborne to hit the sky No worries if my feet touch back down Or even let me fall Time’s made for running Not just a ticking off the wall So hey, gimme a ticket to fly A new pair of wings made of bulletproof wire So hey, gimme a ticket to fly On my way to the sunfire Gimme a ticket to fly Ticket to fly Written by Reto Burrell

I Hate Goodbyes Here it is again, I'm feeling paper-thin See you waving and gone leaves me losering Though the sun is up, my dark shades are down Where's the bang, the kind that kicks me off the ground I'm all aching for you To come 'round Oh, I hate goodbyes, I really hate goodbyes Even though there's a hello on the other side Yeah, I hate goodbyes, I really hate goodbyes A waste of time, I'm dying not being by your side Love's a traffic jam, my car’s stuck in between Lights on red, I'd give it all to skip this scene Most of the songs I sing are all 'bout breaking up Rather ball and brag and raise my cup to cheer Fill in spaces but you're not here So I'm waiting Oh, I hate goodbyes, I really hate goodbyes Even though there's a hello on the other side Yeah, I hate goodbyes, I really hate goodbyes A waste of time, I'm dying not being by your side now I’m still hanging in, trying to speed the clock Then recognize your silhouette just blows the block To see your sparkling eyes with your golden smile These two things hearten me for the last mile to go To hold on Damn, yeah I need some Oh, I hate goodbyes, I really hate goodbyes Even though there's a hello on the other side Yeah, I hate goodbyes, I really hate goodbyes A waste of time, I'm dying not being by your side Written by Reto Burrell

Red, Red Wine pt.2 On the couch almost asleep My bones are weary Hearing a neighbor’s TV scream The same old series I got my hopes all stripped down In this messy room of mine An eighties song keeps bugging As I spill my red, red wine Red, red wine I wish your heart was still with me If only to raise some hell So many different kinds of tears All cried so well I got my hopes all stripped down In this messy life of mine An eighties song keeps bugging As I spill my red, red wine Say goodbye To a gone wrong world Say hello again To old best friends Say whatever Just keep yourself talking Keep yourself saying anything at all Red, red wine I got my hopes still stripped down In this messy time of life An eighties song that bugs me All I see is red I got my hopes all stripped down In this messy life of mine An eighties song keeps bugging As I sip my red, red wine Written by Reto Burrell

When It Comes To Town Tonight Counting all the car lights passing by Knowing this could be an alibi Seeking for a young at heart’s last thrill But let love be as it always will Though the hunger has its need Let’s feed the ego’s beast When it comes to town tonight One bite for blood, a sting quick and fast Another try but knowing it won’t last Always felt this could bring it down But on you go, get up and set your crown Though the hunger has its need Let’s feed the ego’s beast When it comes to town tonight Some may say to know the wrongs from the right Pretend to feel what’s going on inside Though the hunger has its need When it comes to town tonight To town tonight Tonight To town tonight Written by Reto Burrell

You’re Still Alive A pale blue morning The night just died See you heading Towards the light You’re still alive, you’re still alive, still alive I grab this picture Watch it move See you smiling An’ talking too You’re still alive, you’re still alive, still alive Still alive, you’re still alive, still alive They say all we know Is time will heal all the wounds But let it bleed for a while I’m not the man If it wasn’t for you You’re still alive, you’re still alive, still alive A songbird’s still singing Too weak to fly Memories are ringing As days go by You’re still alive, you’re still alive, still alive Still alive, you’re still alive, still alive They say all we know Is time will heal all the wounds But let it bleed for a while I’m not the man If it wasn’t for you You’re still alive, you’re still alive, still alive Still alive, you’re still alive, still alive Written by Reto Burrell

Seize The Morning Light Good morning dear Wake up and save the day Let’s get into gear Make this world a better place Seize the morning light Let the bedbugs bite Seize the morning, the morning, morning light Avoiding the news crash in front of me I’d rather swallow than chew An’ let all the worries be Smiling Seize the morning light Let the bedbugs bite Seize the morning, the morning, morning light Walking on air Pretending not to care Seize the morning light Let the bedbugs bite Seize the morning, the morning, morning Seize the morning light Let yesterday slide Seize the morning, the morning, morning light Written by Reto Burrell

Sweet Lover 03:31
Sweet Lover Sweet lover I’m opening for you Sweet secrets Hiding behind the truth Sweet surrender Take me in and turn me on like an engine The key is in your hands Sweet lover Make me forget who I am Sweet feelings That won't dare to understand Sweet devotion Take me in and turn me on like fire The match is in your hands Counting down the minutes Wish they could be years Carving my heart If this might just be dreaming I’m waking up with tears In a real world torn apart Sweet lover You deserve a lot more than me Sweet distance That came too close in between Sweet goodbye Let it go but don't tarnish us tomorrow Written by Reto Burrell

Three Monkeys Take in the shots for a poor idea No, it won't hurt much holding back the tears As the hammer falls the alarm is ringing It cut my tongue to stop me from singing How can a fool ride a train without being on rails? To a dead end station called 'Failed' Three monkeys Don't see, don't hear nor say a thing Three monkeys Just giving up while giving in Money’s the key that makes us jingle A pocket full of wealth ready to mingle Tell me, where's the place I can live without Maybe somewhere far on a mushroom cloud How can a fool ride a train without being on rails? To a dead end station called 'Failed' Three monkeys Don't see, don't hear nor say a thing Three monkeys Just giving up while giving in What ever makes it right Cave in day and night Before you stop and linger Smell the tip of your middle finger Three monkeys Three monkeys Three monkeys Three monkeys Written by Reto Burrell

A Reason To Stay Here Everybody knows this feeling Guess I’m not the only one who bleeds Losing sense of what I’m needing Is there a reason to stay here? I’ve been waiting on the harvest Giving me more than I can eat But it’s not what I was calling Is there a reason to stay here? In the alley of the lonely A broken man wants to understand Why what happened was meant to be Is there a reason to stay here? Everybody knows this feeling Guess I’m not the only one who needs To lose the sense of bleeding Is there a reason to stay here? A reason for staying here Staying here Written by Reto Burrell

Gladiators Of Society Save your words Don’t hold your breath Swallow your anger Son, while you’re gonna grow There's a lot you oughta know So many things to take in Shape up, sharpen your knives There's a bullet for every life No harm to what you achieve Think first then you act Or was it opposite of that? Like gladiators in the ring Strive for every moment Keep faith in who you are Know where you come from No matter what battle’s won It’s the one you’re in Stand your ground Fight for your rights Don’t you ever settle You’re smart and you’re strong With a heart full of drive Curious to the bone Seems like everyone wants to be different By not changing anything at all Living fast, living loud Stepping feet on shaky grounds We just watch ‘em fall Strive for every moment Keep faith in who you are Know where you come from No matter what battle’s won It’s the one you’re in You’re in the ring Shape up, sharpen your knives There's a bullet for every life No harm to what you achieve Think first then you act Or was it opposite of that? Like gladiators in the ring Strive for every moment Keep faith in who you are Know where you come from No matter what battle’s won It’s the one you’re in Written by Reto Burrell
