BETWEEN THE LINES

Can you read
what's written between the lines?
Where does it lead?
Do you understand the signs?

Are my words
strong enough to reach your heart?
I we were birds
we wouldn't be so far apart...

Can you feel
how much I long for you?
Can I make you heal
when I write the way I do?

Don't you know
I'm only really happy when you're there?
I don't want to go
each time we get to share...

Without you
I'm not the person I used to be
what shall I do?
Only you can set me free...

Time seems long
when you are so far away
It seems so wrong
I often lack the words to say

Let me be
the one who lives with you every day
let it be me
who will always be at your side to stay

So I write
what with spoken words I can't express
I just can't fight
what I feel inside - so I confess

You're the one
that I'm thinking of all the time through
so when you're gone
I just can't help to be missing you

Let me try
to explain what I feel so deep inside
but don't ask why
the love for you I just can't hide



Feelings

When you are gone,
I miss what only you can give
- what makes me know you are the one,
the way you make it feel to live

When you're not there,
I miss the smile that warms my heart,
the time we always used to share,
the words when we're too far apart

Each time you're near,
the scars inside begin to heal:
I wish you always could be here,
because of what I get to feel

Whenever you're away,
I get to feel so empty inside
It's hard to make it through the day,
though I don't count the lonely tears I've cried

When you're close to me,
I feel that you make me complete
- just the way that it should be,
starting from the time we used to meet

Any time that you're around
it doesn't matter what we do
I'm so happy that I found
the way I get to feel about you




Rainbow

My world used to be so dark
I couldn't even see a spark
- then suddenly you came around
to show me what I hadn't found

You showed me what I had inside
- you saw what I tried to hide:
Describing the person you could see,
the person I am - deep inside of me

In my world you are the light,
the one with who I always want to be:
The one who sends my soul to flight
- because you can make me see
the rainbow deep inside of me

Without you my world's been cold,
until you started to help me unfold
what was hidden deep inside my core:
Now I feel the warmth and so much more

First it seemed to be so unreal,
just the way you made me feel:
The warmth growing inside my heart,
how I miss you when we're apart

In my world you are the light,
the one with who I always want to be:
The one who sends my soul to flight
- because you can make me see
the rainbow deep inside of me

I always thought I was to be alone,
I had to walk the path just on my own
- but now I feel there's something new,
because you feel the way I do

You understand the way I feel,
just knowing this has made me heal
How life could be - I had no clue
until the moment I met you

In my world you are the light,
the one with who I always want to be:
The one who sends my soul to flight
- because you can make me see
the rainbow deep inside of me

So let me show what I see in you,
what made me feel the way I do:
the beauty everybody sees,
that's bringing me down to my knees

Just the way you treat everyone,
the honesty with which you get everything done,
the warmth in your heart you always share,
the way you always seem to care...

In my world you are the light,
the one with who I always want to be:
The one who sends my soul to flight
- because you make me see
the rainbow deep inside of me
