Track Name: A nice surprise
I know there’s something over here,
So I’m staying around trying a not wild shaking.
I hope this won’t be the same as near,
I’m tired of playing the false laughs maker.
And I say “Here comes a nice surprise!”
While I’m taking the words in my hand.

“Hey boy!, what are you doing over here?
Are you taking a walk while the work is waiting?”
“You’d see, it may have no kind of sense
while I’m keeping the words in my hand”

Cause everything you say to me, it seems so real,
I don’t agree with the way you think, oh no.

I heard, it is written on the stars,
Everyone has a moment of self decision,
So I went and met the wise old man,
He was climbing a tree in a Tarzan’s mission,
So I said “What are you doing hung up there?”
“I’ve just lost the moment I had,
and I really want to know,
yes, I really want to know,
Was I doing it so wrong?
and I really want to know,
Will I have to be on my own?
To be what I was made for?”

Why all of you, the same old phrase, the same old song,
I can’t recognize you at all, oh no.

So I’m here, waiting for the time to come,
A brand new hat on and my eyes wide open.
And I say “Here comes a nice surprise!”,
Still keeping the words in my hand.
Track Name: Faces on the wall
I’m painting faces on the wall,
And I still don’t know what they are for,
They do not talk to me at all.

I’m dancing waltzes in the rain,
The water is holding me, my hand,
And I’m trying to embrace but there’s no way.

And I’m stepping out the time now,
Make no movement, make no sound,
Take some breath and start a new,
But what they say it is not true,
Cause in every single thing I do,
I’ve got my mind set up on you.

I’m holding candles on the hill,
You knew of the fool, well, it was me,
I’m showing more than I can see.

I’m whispering secrets to your ear,
The kind of those you love to hear,
The more I say, the less you need.

And I’m stepping out the time now,
Make no movement, make no sound,
Take some breath and start a new,
But what they say it is not true,
Cause in every single thing I do,
I’ve got my mind set up on you.
Track Name: Break on the moon
You left your glasses at school and I said:
‘Oh, tonight you look so beautiful, ooh hoo!’,
now you’re colliding into every tree and I say:
‘Oh, what did you think it was gonna be, ooh hoo!’.

‘Oh, how I love white chocolate!’ and you say:
‘Oh, here I have a milky bar, ooh hoo!’,
and now I’m over a hundred pounds and you say:
‘Oh, would you like this little one?, ooh hoo!’.

Let’s have a break up on the moon, ooh hoo!
There we can have a new point of view, ooh hoo!

And when I see you passing by I say:
‘Oh, here comes the girl with her four eyes, ooh hoo!’
And when you see me walking down you say:
‘Oh, there goes the rolling doughnut man, ooh hoo!’.

Let’s have a break up on the moon, ooh hoo!
There we can have a new point of view, ooh hoo!

And when I’m telling you this would be OK,
You know there’s something going through my head.

Let’s have a break up on the moon, ooh hoo!
There we can have a new point of view, ooh hoo!
We’ve got two tickets to the moon, ooh hoo!
And all expenses thrown into, ooh hoo!
Track Name: Johnny against the wall
I left back home in New Orleans,
A place where I have never been,
Rolling my pelvis by the wind.

Me and my guitar were number one,
We had our first live in Coco´s bar,
Then I realized there were no women around.
Go Johnny, go and touch the sky!

“I know that was not your hope,
but roll as you know,
although it can’t be worse,
you roll and you roll and you roll.”

I found my love at a house by the road,
She had some kind of social job,
She took my heart as she had more.

I took her hand and asked for love,
Go Johnny go, against the wall!

And she said:
“I know why you’re around,
So take what you want,
Yeah, I know what you’re waiting for,
So take what you...”
Oh baby, How I cried that night,
She didn’t give my money back.

So I’m heading to the big city,
There I will find a place for me,
Where I can roll and I can hide.
Go Johnny, go and say goodbye!.

Give me money, that’s what I want,
A lot of money, that’s what I want...
Track Name: The Waltz
I met a girl, she lived next door,
She told me her name but I hope she’d said more,
At the time I thought I’d heard it all.

I took her home and went for some tea,
She told me she had all the afternoon free,
We had time enough to drink it all.

“I know the colour in you”, this is what she said,
so I painted my face in blue as she brushed her hair.

I took her hand at (the) time we stood up,
She took her shoes off as we were dancing the Waltz
And the ground fell off beyond our feet.

I told her to stay at home and watch the film,
She told me that it was late and went home to sleep.

So I stood at home, went to bed alone,
Dreams of a waltz in Technicolor,
Since that night I haven’t seen her no more.
Track Name: The great wave
I’m having good vibrations but nothing’s going well,
Look at the situation, it always seems the same,
Millions of surfers trying hard to reach the shore,
When they arrive their surfs turned into motorboats.

I’m taking phrases, changing senses and mix them all,
See how the walrus is counting oysters on the floor,
He’s so conceited, he’s got beautiful ideas,
But after unwrapping them they’re simple souvenirs.

It’s true, I’m searching for something new,
The way that the things are going on won’t make it better,
You, you’re searching for something too,
I hope we will met again someday, up on the great wave.

I had a nasty morning, I thought I would desist,
A sudden changing round has put me on my knees,
Nobody warned me not to surf such kind of waves,
And I had my eyes on surfer girls wearing top-less.

Oh, surfer girl, you do me, oh, you do me well,
So let me tell you the stupid things I’ve gotta say

It’s true, I’m searching for something new,
The way that the things are going on won’t make it better,
You, you’re searching for something too,
I hope we will met again someday, up on the great wave.
Track Name: It's you
I found it out, I know what’s the new,
And I’m saying it loud I’m saying it true,
But I’m wasting time till I can say to you,
When will I do?

I think you’re right, yeah, I left you before,
Nothing to say, I just had to go,
Now I’m coming home, I’m coming back to you,
Yeah, I’m coming soon.

I just found quite the same, the more I looked for new,
I didn’t know that it was you,
I should have had the time, I should have had the truth,
I’ve got it now, it’s you.

I found it out, I know what’s the new,
And I’m saying it loud I’m saying it true,
So I’m coming home, I’m coming back to you,
And I’m coming soon.

I just found quite the same, the more I looked for new,
I didn’t know that it was you,
I should have had the time, I should have had the truth,
I’ve got it now, it’s you.
Track Name: Maybe someday
Maybe someday I’ll change my mind,
Maybe someday I’ll take your hand,
But at the time I can’t get through,
I’ve still got my heart broken in two.

And we both know that it’s alright,
You kept your time while I lost mine,
And now, when you call me, oh, so true!
There’re so many things I’ve gotta do.

And I wish I could hide, hide away,
Be back on my dreams again,
And I wish I could cry, tears away,
And give all my love to you again,
But as I know, I’ll never, never do.

And I’m aware that I love you,
And in spite of all, I’ll always do,
But giving my love to you,
This is the worst thing I could do.

And I wish I could hide, hide away,
Be back on my dreams again,
And I wish I could cry, tears away,
And give you all my love again,
And I wish I could blow the clouds away,
And feel oh!, the sun on me,
And I wish I could soul right on you,
And see what your eyes would say to me,
But as I know, I’ll never, never do.

What did you do when I sang out of tune,
Did you stand up and walk out on me?
Track Name: Waltzes in the rain
I’m dancing waltzes in the rain,
The water is holding me, my hand.
Track Name: Morning paper
I make a face behind the door,
Where I can feel but I can’t stay long,
I’ve got your hair and got your eyes,
But it’s not that simple.

I put my mind in that little box
I sent you wrapped in morning paper,
And though I couldn’t read the words,
It’s not so easy.

I paint your body in secret colours
And cut my ear where I can bleed,
And run away from old dark legends,
Well, I can’t face them.
Track Name: Breakfast time
I see sorrows, I see points of view,
and I see feelings and I feel them too,
I see you’re sorry through your open mind,
it’s been so long babe, but I think it’s fine.

Cause I see the sun and it comes overhead,
And now’s the time, it won’t escape again,
Cause everything I want’s you.

And I see your picture and I see you blue,
And I look at the mirror, what else can I do?
I’ve been so alone babe, and I’ve been so proud,
So don’t be long babe, cause it’s getting right.

Cause I see the sun and it comes overhead,
And now’s the time, it won’t escape again,
Cause everything I want’s you.

I see the sun over your head,
And here is the sun, have a breakfast well.
