Track Name: The Hippie Song (shake my Kundalini)
Hey you, you caught my attention
Ever since we entered the fifth dimension
Feathers in your long hair swaying in the wind
And your third eye covered in a colorful bindi
Playing my heart when you're beating that hang
Or you slide up that tree like a little boomslang
Hey my element is fire and I guess yours is water
Cause you're making me feel so hakuna matter

Your zodiac sign tells me that your mine
And there's no denying when the stars align
So boy baby boy let's skip the romance
And get into a tantric trance
When we dance in bohemian ecstasy
And you're flowing closer just to see
The stardust in my eyes and make me feel you energy
Oh boy, this is what you do to me

Yeah, this is what you do to me now
Listen up listen up now, yeah

You shake my Kundalini
You water my tree of life
You're flowing my vinyasa
When our root chakra's collide
All the lotuses are blooming
When we do the things we do
And if my body is a temple baby,
It's the sacred place for you

Maybe we met in a former life
In an Indian tribe where I was your wife
We had five little children in a nice little tipi
I just feel like I met you, isn't that trippy?
Speaking of which can I have a hit
Of those special herbs from your own growing kit
Or meet me up in the sky in my diamond dress
Where you can call me Lucy the Spaceprincess
(oh you can be my Spaceprince baby)

Now if you show me some good behaviour
Tell me baby, what's your flavor
I'll make you a superfood-smoothie
And stir it up with some Ice Ice baby
Sway your hips in a hoop from side to side
Do a downward facing dog and make me feel enlightened
See I don't care if you call your god Raa, Jah or Allah,
Cause boy, you're hotter than bikram yoga
If you feel this spiritual connection,
Won't you meditate my direction

Cause you

Shake my Kundalini
You water my tree of life
You're flowing my vinyasa
When our root chakra's collide
All the lotuses are blooming
When we do the things we do
And if my body is a temple baby,
It's the sacred place for you
Track Name: Bird
I spread my arms and closed my eyes
And wished I was a bird
So that I could fly to you and sing to you all of the words I
Didn't say I should have said when you were near
I'd sing to you the thinks
I think you'd really love to hear

My dear,

Be careful what you wish for cause it might come true
But all I'm wishing for is you

I'd say:
"Let's build ourselves a houseboat
to raise our future kids
We could swim at every sunrise
right after my morning-kiss
Sing our songs at our rooftop
Set sail when it's time to move on
Send our parents paper ships
Reassuring them that there's no better life than this"

Be careful what you wish for cause it might come true
But all I'm wishing for is you
Oh, all I'm wishing for is you ooh ooh ooh
All I'm wishing for is you

One day soon I'll pack my backpack and leave
Trough high blue skies and over deep green seas
You'd open up your arms when you'd see me come
And tell me that you waited all along

You'd say

Be careful what you wish for cause it might come true
And now that we're together what are we to do ooh ooh
Yeah now that we're together what are we to do ooh ooh ooh

Why don't we wish for something new
Track Name: Gimme Room
Stop, you are getting to close
Get out of my face out of my way
You're in my personal zone
And I don't like the way you behave

So get out get out
Cause you're crossing the line again
Get out get out
Cause I don't wanna fight again

Gimme room gimme space to breathe
Cause my lungs don't fill up so easily
When you keep building up that pressure pressure
Feeling so suffocated living up to your measures, hey

Gimme room gimme space to breathe
Cause my lungs don't fill up so easily
When you keep building up that pressure pressure
Feeling so suffocated living up to your measures

Gimme room, gimme space to breathe
Gimme room now gimme room room now
Gimme room, gimme space to breathe
Gimme room now gimme room room now
Gimme room, gimme space to breathe
Gimme room now gimme room room now
Gimme room, gimme space to breathe
Gimme room now gimme room room now

You think I am just like you
Well darling have you heard the news
I posses my own individuality
And I won't go make the same mistakes, no
I know we're not going to change, so
I believe acceptance is our key

So come on come on,
It's so clear we're just different
Come on come on,
There's nothing wrong with who I am

Gimme room gimme space to breathe
Cause my lungs don't fill up so easily
When you keep building up that pressure pressure
Feeling so suffocated living up to your measures

Gimme room, gimme space to breathe
Gimme room now gimme room room now
Gimme room, gimme space to breathe
Gimme room now gimme room room now
Gimme room, gimme space to breathe
Gimme room now gimme room room now
Gimme room, gimme space to breathe

I choose my words so carefully maybe you should do the same
Before you speak before you talk before you start to blame
Others of your own mistakes your flaws and all your ache
But if you are too blind to see there's nothing left to say

Gimme room, gimme space to breathe
Gimme room now gimme room room now
Gimme room, gimme space to breathe
Gimme room now gimme room room now
Gimme room, gimme space to breathe
Gimme room now gimme room room now
Gimme room, gimme space to breathe
Gimme room now gimme room room now
Track Name: Turning back
And the wheels keep on turning
And the trees flashing by
A drop of water on the other side of the glass
Passes by as it follows it's track
Dancing down down down down down

And there ain't no turning back
And there ain't no turning back

And the leaves started falling
And meanwhile did I
The tips of your fingers reaching out for me as I'm turning into a memory
Fading out out out out out

And there ain't no turning back
And there ain't no turning back
And there ain't no turning back
And there ain't no turning back

No turning back
No turning back
No turning back
No turning back

No

And the wheels keep on turning
And the wheels keep on turning
And there ain't no turning back
Track Name: Traveler
Funny how sometimes feelings
Cannot be explained
I really need this time now, need to rearrange
Chase my hopes and wishes, make my skies more clear
Staying here would be holding on to fear
Oh, staying here would be holding on to fear

I promise I'll always dream I'll do everything safely
I will find my peace of mind
While I'm hard to find
And I'm leaving you and everything behind
Oh I'm leaving you and everything behind

And maybe you will find me
Busking in your bar
Sailing all the seven seas with a backpack and guitar
Dancing under shooting stars chasing all my dreams
Far and free
Far and free

And if you will find me we will reconnect
Get lost in each other's eyes and other kinds of affection
And on and on our lives will intertwine
In the perfect time
In the perfect time

And maybe I will come back covered in tattoos
Gained a few wrinkles or a scar or two
And though I may be hard to recognize
You will see it's me by looking me in the eyes
Oh you'll see it's me by looking me in the eyes

And maybe when I come back
You will be long gone
Already forgot me or you've already moved on
Or maybe you'll be angry that I've left you for so long

Well this is my not-forever-goodbye-song
Oh this is my not-forever-goodbye-song
And maybe when you look me in the eye
You will see that this is not forever goodbye
Oh and darling I cannot tell you when
But I know that our souls will meet again
