Track Name: Oh You
I never told you anything about myself
I couldn’t share my thoughts with you
I didn’t think you’d understand what I was feeling
I didn’t think the consequences through

Oh you

It was never on my mind to close you out like this
I wanted to take care of you
And keep you safe from everything I was afraid of
I didn’t want to bother you

Oh you
Are deep in my heart
Deep in my heart

solo

If ever I could tell you just how much I miss you
I want you to be here with me
Then I would speak of everything I left unspoken
And maybe you could do that too

Oh you
Are deep in my heart
Still in my heart


(Koene - Winston)
Track Name: All This Time
All this time I put my trust in you
Never mind the doubts I had
I never saw what was coming
I never thought that you could do this to me

Now it’s time for me to see what happened
Will I find some truth in what you said
I’ll never trust another
I’ll never love someone again like this

solo

I can’t hide this love that I still feel for you
All this time it lingered on inside
I’ll never love another
I’ll never find someone like you again


(Koene - Winston)
Track Name: Wine and Beer
I can see what’s on the table
A glass of wine and beer
But can I see what’s on your mind
See what you love and fear

I want to get to know you
See more than your pretty face

I can see that you keep smiling
But are you happy at this time
Your eyes they paint a picture
Of what you hide inside

I want to get to know you
See more than your pretty face

solo

I can see what’s on the table
It’s just a glass of beer
It’s clear that you have left me
That was my biggest fear

I never got to know you
No more than your pretty face

solo

Track Name: Here With Me
When you hear me say that I am feeling fine
It’s because I think of the time that you were mine

And though I try to think of other people dear to me
I cannot help but wish that you were here with me

I’ll always remember the happiness I felt with you
I’ll never forget the moments you looked at me and loved me too
When I need my life to shine I find you in my mind

My days go by it’s like eternity takes up my time
And when I feel alive is when I close my eyes

I’ll always remember the happiness I felt with you
I’ll never forget the moments you looked at me and loved me too
When I need my life to shine I find you in my mind

I cannot help but wish that you were here with me


(Koene - Winston)
Track Name: The River and the Sea
Show me where the river runs that I need to follow
It’s been too long since I have seen the sea

The silent sweetness of the stream will soothe my sorrow
The sea will help me find who I really need to be

Show me where the river runs
Show me where the river runs

I searched my sleeping soul and found a pool of silence
So much unlike the movement of the sea

solo

When the salty air has stirred my sleeping senses
The sea will take my tears and show me what I need to see

Show me where the river runs
Show me where the river runs


(Koene - Winston)
Track Name: Good Today
I don’t feel good today
Trouble clouds my mind
Can’t see my future well enough
Don’t feel I use my time

My brain is bouncing in my head
I can barely bear the pain
My thoughts don’t feel aligned no more
I feel I go insane

And each day goes by without you
When will it ever change

I sleep in late each day
And every day’s the same
I try to get in touch with you
But you seem far away

And each day goes by without you
When will it ever change
Each day goes by without you
When will it ever change


(Koene - Winston)
Track Name: My Place
There’s a place I hold inside of me
Nothing special just a place for me to dream
To get away from all that’s real
And get in touch with how I feel

In my place I know that nothing’s really here
And all my fears and doubts and sorrow disappear
And in my dreams I get to see
What it feels like to be free

In my place is where I like to hide
From all the demons that I fight
It’s only moments that they’re gone
But in my dreams I feel I’ve won

It’s in my place that I feel as before
That I can take on all the world and more
And I know how I can fulfil
All the dreams I dream of still

I spend more time now in my hiding place
It’s the only place where I feel safe
No one bothers me
No one talks to me
Everybody leaves me alone


(Koene - Winston)
Track Name: Drive Me Home
Drive me home now
Safely but surely
Don’t stop for anything in our way
I need to get out of this crazy day

It’s the end of an era of struggle and strife
She wanted out of that crazy life

Why didn’t she tell me what was on her mind
Why didn’t she say what she had to say

Drive me home now
Safely but surely
Don’t stop for anything

solo

It’s the end of an era of struggle and strife
She wanted out of that crazy life

Why didn’t she tell me what was on her mind
Why didn’t she say what she had to say
Why didn’t she tell me what was on her mind
Why didn’t she say what she had to say

Drive me home now


(Koene - Winston)
Track Name: Know What It's Like
I know what it’s like to lose a loved one
And how your heart can hurt like hell
Everybody tries to get you through it
But all you want is to be left alone

I know what it’s like
So please don’t come around and see me

I know how it feels to be forgotten
And what it’s like to be all alone
The emptiness can drive you crazy
Oh how it hurts to be on your own

I know what it’s like
So please don’t come around and see me

There’s always something worse to make you worry
Something else that gets you down
It seems a part of how your living
And don’t you get what you’ve been giving

I know what it’s like to hit the ceiling
And how it feels to fall down to the ground
Now see if you can use these feelings
And try to turn your life around

I know what it’s like
So please don’t come around to see me


(Koene - Winston)
Track Name: Sunshine from Within
Although the rain was falling down on me
I felt the sunshine from within
I never felt so good in all my life
And no one could see where I had been

In and out of all my lives
Back and forth in time

And you were always there following my way to show me where to go
Always by my side holding my dear life in your tiny hands

And now my head is filled with memories
Of all things past and yet to come
I have a clear idea of what I need
To be the man that I’ve become

In and out of all my lives
Back and forth in time

And you were always there following my way to show me where to go
Always by my side holding my dear life in your tiny hands

solo

In and out of all my lives
Back and forth in time

And you were always there following my way to show me where to go
Always by my side holding my dear life in your tiny hands

solo

In and out of all my lives
Back and forth in time


(Koene - Winston)
Track Name: Never Be Apart
If I sang a song about you
To let you know that I still love you
Would you ever hear my voice
Would it ever reach your heart

I cannot say how much I miss you
You’re still in my heart
Though I can see a way without you
We’ll never be apart

Our memories will last a lifetime
I’ll always think of you

solo

It’s been a long time since I’ve seen you
I wonder if you’ve changed
Would I still like you if I met you
Could our love still be the same

Our memories will last a lifetime
You’re always in my heart
I’m glad that I have met you
We’ll never be apart

solo


(Koene - Winston)
Track Name: Goodbye
Goodbye
I have to leave you
I need to be alone
I leave you for a long time
But I love you till the end

Please don’t misunderstand me
I really love you

Goodbye
For the last time


(Koene - Winston)
