Alessandro Selli This is just the kind of music that makes me most comfortable: moving without being overly emotional, intimate and not pretentious, imaginative but not deceiving, warm, not invasive. Like a friend whom you long to meet in order to listen the many stories he/she can tell so well, and you never doubt he/she's telling them from his/her heart, not making them up to show off before your eyes. The warmth of emotion fills the air untainted by mistrust or unconfessed motives. Favorite track: Stay (live).

are they really here or just in my mind (in her mind) oh and can you feel the fear of what lies behind their eyes they came from the walls they tortured us all and drove us away from our home here in the night they are calling my name (so she goes) there is no wrong or right but i'm losing this game (and she knows) what can we do what can we say (they don't know) if it wasn't for you we would not run away (but they go) by the garden gate i sit with my brother i just hope it's not too late for my father and mother shall we go back inside there's no reason to hide we can fight and take back our home they say that when the wolves come out of the walls, it's all over. but it's not all over, coz we won't go. We won't go! here in the night they are crying in pain (and she knows) everything is alright we did not fight in vain (they won't go) we know what to do and we know what to say (now they know) there's no power in you we will not run away (we won't go)

I’m not your good girl I’m not anyone Life has grown so difficult Just trying not to fall Sometimes I see you Peek through your dark disguise Though I am broken down by your words I can’t look away from your eyes You want too much of me And you give me nothing but lies When you’re here I can’t feel Who I really am When you’re gone I want to run Far away Push and pull my heartstrings Each tug takes liberty You fight to get what suits you Make the world what you want it to be Time to step out of your shadow Let the sun shine down on me I’m not your good girl I’m not your anything I’ve become so cynical Smaller steps won’t stop my fall

One night I opened my window I wanted to see What would come in I fell into sleep And that’s where I found you You held me so close And then you were gone I can see you tonight What happens Tomorrow Will I see you again Or will I be All alone One night I closed my window I just couldn’t bare Those dreams again I fell out of sleep And I couldn’t find you I woke up And then you were gone I can’t hold you tonight My world wrapped In sorrow I won’t hold you again So now I’ll be All alone

Silver lines have turned to black There is no turning back Fade and shift and leave me blind I left it all behind What am I to do Without you Guess we'll never know Into the dark abyss I go Tell me why We must stop breathing Born to die Life is so Deceiving Flames flicker 'round my face What is this place Wishing wells and more A drug that meets the core What it is you see Is only me Faded dreams have gone astray I can't see the light Of day Tell me who Took my heart away Kings and fools I will take it back Some day I am free Here upon this earth I will be Witness to Rebirth

Shine (live) 04:02
You’ve got to fight for it After all it’s yours Don’t let the world Push you down Into its’ core Please don’t cry What’s done is done You can only fix yourself You can never change The other ones Shine this light down on me forever My open eyes are so alive Break through these walls that leave me useless All of my fears have gone away The pain is over now And the wounds are healed They clipped your wings But now you see What’s been revealed Look to the sky Draw down the moon Fill your life with silver dreams Spin a secret spell You’ll find it soon

I don't need you to say Pain is coming close I know all too well By the force of your hand I am so afraid You have crushed my will As my tears run softly down I ask you to stop You continue anyway Is this what you call love As I shut my eyes I could have been free Without your chains But my tears still run softly down Will I ever know A life away from you As my tears still run softly down

Stay (live) 04:12
I come through the door You're not sitting by the table Anymore I look away Can't hold this image in my mind I wish I was blind To the hope your face will bring Why should I Keep this guilt wrapped up in chains Pain again 'Cause my heart's not made that way We can be Just as close if I am far away Love you enough To stay ... to stay Oceans of love Fill my empty heart And I wonder Would it always be the same Carry me inside These feelings will not die You'll be with me forever Why should I Keep this guilt wrapped up in chains Pain again 'Cause my heart's not made that way We can be Just as close if I am far away Love you enough To stay ... to stay Why should I Keep this guilt wrapped up in chains Pain again 'Cause my heart's not made that way We will be Just as close though I am far away I loved you enough To stay ... to stay

On the other side Of these castle walls Lies a world I’m not a part of Forbidden to even think for myself Dared to step outside the line For fear of torture I always wanted to know How to kill a king Use his madness against him Forsake everything Though his grip is so tight And it’s choking me I will find a way out Of this loyalty Just when I thought I was Running out of time The King stood trembling at my bedside He said “if you leave me now, My suicide will follow” And I said “what are you waiting for?” Now I know How to kill a king Now he suffers in silence With a poisonous sting He could not steal my might And it seems to be I have found a way out Of his loyalty I know that I can survive Outside this cage Maybe now I can fight through All this rage I’m so glad I knew How to kill the King I tore down the boundaries And took off the ring To reap what you sow Is how it should be There’s no one left on the throne Of this royalty
