about

Track Name: Hardest to Reach
Hardest to Reach (lyrics)

The shadow of a doubt
We hope you never sort it out.
I don’t know why but she helps me believe
There is love in my head, something is free'd
You and me, that’s something to be
And our love isn’t stained, with the
Marks that we shouldn’t have made.

It’s just my heart aches
And up and and down - Its’ just a matter of time
Weeping from points that we shouldn’t have made
Up to my head, over my grave

Am I defining this beautiful timing
When love lets you down
And you’re drowning again

Hardest to reach
People I want - people I need
People like you - people like me.

It’s a heartache
Does your heart ache
Over my head, loveless but love leaves you drowning
You know that you’re frowning again
Over my grave
And the people I want
Are the hardest to reach
Now I’m down, will I ever be free
And the people I want are the hardest to reach

People I want - people I need
People like you - people like me
It’s a heart ache
Does your hear ache
Up and down
It’s just a change of heart.

Αν εισαι στον ισκιο της αμφιβολιας
Ελευθερωσου απο την φυλακη
Και βγες στον πανωριο ηλιο.

Ο ουρανος σαν μαλαχιτης
Η σωτηριος χαρη
Τοσο δυσκολο να την αγγιξεις.

Σαν το φεγγαρι που κιναει τη θαλασσα
κυνηγεμενο απο τον ηλιο
Για ολη την αιωνιοτητα
Σ’ακολουθω

Η Αθηνα, Η Αλεξανδρια
Το Λονδινο, Η Μαλτα
Το Βερολινο, Η Αιγυπτος
Αφρικη

Ελλαδα

Σ’ακολουθω
Η Αθηνα
Η Αλεξανδρια

Translation:

If you dwell in the shadows of doubt
Free yourself from this prison
And step out into the glorious sunlight

The malachite sky
This saving grace
The hardest to reach

Like the moon that moves the sea
Chased by the sun
For all eternity
I will follow you

Athens, Alexandria
London, Malta
Berlin, Egypt, Africa
Greece

I will follow you

Steam (lyrics)

I don’t know where to go
I don’t know when I’ve been so lonely
I don’t know where to go
I don’t know when I’ve been so lonely
Been so lonely
Not only, been so lonely.

Steam, out of steam
You are the space in between
Whatever i;I’ve lost she’s my queen
Steam, out of steam
You are the space in between
Whatever I’ve lost you’re my queen.

Steam, the light, the dream
Steam, the light, the dream.

Dream, dream
You are the light, the silver screen
Whatever we’ve lost in between
Dream, dream, you are the light, the silver screen
Whatever I’ve lost in between
Whatever I’ve lost
steam, light, the dream
Steam, light, dream
Steam
The light
The dream
Steam
The light
The dream.
