    De eerste CD van Shifting Daylight is uitgebracht in 2014.
    De dames die aanwezig waren op het huiskamerconcert waren – behalve heel enthousiast – ook nieuwsgierig naar de gezongen teksten. Die zijn nu (met elkaar) uitgewerkt. Voor iedereen die ook wil weten wat er gezongen wordt op de CD onderstaand de lyrics.

    01 – UPRISE

    You have the sky, the sun the sea
    An image of how life should be
    We eat, we pray, make love, we hunt
    We build up to the waterfront
    I can’t recall ever feeling so in love and so alive
    The cradle full of promises to find
    Part of me laying waste to evil thoughts born in my mind
    Knowing that the wheel keeps on winding
    Here you are, growing strong
    A blinding light reminds us of how long
    we’ve been wrong, look around
    the signs sparkling in the sun
    Light up the riverfront
    Light up the sky
    Light up the mountaintops
    Daylight shifting time

    The noise, the voice this peaceful sleep
    Mountains high, a giant leap
    A whisper in the morning breeze
    took me in, swept me off my feet
    And I can recall falling over aged in hideaways
    capturing the moments at stake
    And covered with concrete and railroad tracks
    and nowadays there’s always a life worth saving
    Care for love. Open up
    Release and learn to grow
    full of life, full of hope
    Tied to both ends of the rope
    Light up the riverfront
    Light up the sky
    Light up the mountaintops
    Daylight shifting time
    Light up the riverfront
    Light up the sky
    Light up the mountaintops
    Daylight shifting time

    Hey yoo, hey yoo,
    Hey yoo, hey yoo…

    Light up the riverfront
    Light up the sky
    Light up the mountaintops
    Daylight shifting time

    Hey yoo, hey yoo…

    02 – SOMETHING SO REAL

    The strength of your embrace
    makes it so hard to let go
    as the snow reveals my face
    I’m makin’ an overthrown
    This is why I’m here
    I guess this is why I’m here
    See the world fade in now,
    black and white blend in somehow
    and I bring nothing except the state I’m in
    I feel something so real

    You got me longing for this place,
    where you will shelter me I know
    I disappear without a trace,
    come see me shut down slowly
    I come to understand
    how insignificant I am
    See the world fade in now,
    black and white blend in somehow
    and I bring nothing except the state I’m in,
    I feel something so real

    I’m coming face to face
    with a past long gone
    and reborn in this place
    to choose a name, make it count
    A peaceful life so pure fulfilling all my needs
    as I look back on open leafs
    The journey echoes on
    It echoes on and on and on

    See the world fade in now,
    black and white blend in somehow
    a peaceful life before my eyes,
    no regrets, no questions why
    and I bring nothing except the state I’m in
    I carry nothing except this bag of sins
    A perfect place for us, a new begin
    I feel something so real

    03 – HOLLYWOOD ENDING

    I noticed you were leaving on the morning train
    I’ll bet you expect me to be there
    Will it disappoint you
    things don’t work out the way you think they should
    What I would give to see the look on your face
    when you finally realise that I’m late again
    Would it slow you down,
    find some time to take a look around
    Well this hotel room ain’t the same without you
    But I ‘m trying to make the best of it
    03:45 Another lonely night
    Tell me why should I cry for you

    I’m running on empty
    Living and hiding far too long
    Everybody needs a chance to win
    a Hollywood ending
    Separate my right from wrong
    Well you know that it’s not my thing
    this Hollywood ending
    Are you prepared to wait till the last second
    for the one who will make it all happen
    Like send from up above
    No greater thing than love
    Well your hero is stuck in his room again
    He’s drunk and trying to be a man
    6 AM another day begins
    Tell me why should I try for you
    I’m running on empty
    Living and hiding far too long
    Everybody needs a chance to win
    a Hollywood ending
    Separate my right from wrong
    Well you know that is not my thing
    this Hollywood ending

    Whohoho whohoho
    Whohoho whohoho

    Running on empty
    We’re living and hiding far too long
    Everybody needs a chance to win
    a Hollywood ending
    Separate my right from wrong
    Well you know that it’s not my thing
    this Hollywood ending

    we’re running on empty
    We all got our broken dreams
    The price of our cannot be
    Well you know that is not my thing
    this Hollywood ending
    a Hollywood ending
    with housewives and movie themes
    who cares ‘bout the casualty’s
    Well you know that is not my thing
    this Hollywood ending

    04 – TWO HANDS

    Wandering leads me to a place I know
    A shimmering light,
    it tells me that you’re not alone
    It’s no secret that my heart belongs to you
    Makes it so hard to accept the things you do
    If I were a stranger would you let me in,
    let me walk right through
    Could I be your saviour, your reason to live,
    or am I your fool
    Time to wake up
    Won’t you come
    Don’t let your troubled heartache on
    Please stop
    Rest your worried head
    I will carry you out
    with my own two hands
    I will reach for the stars
    with my own two hands
    Build you a place in the sun
    with my own two hands
    Let all your bygones be gone

    I’m tired of waiting for once upon a time
    An ever after ended in the morning light
    This enchanted left here on your own
    Another one who tried to trade your gold for stones
    The concretes are fading while you carve your name
    in walls that crumble
    If I am your saviour, your reason to live
    why won’t you come home
    Caus’ I want you to know
    I’d carry you on my back
    For you I lift up the sky
    with my own two hands
    My own two hands (5x)
    Let me hold you close
    There’s this place I know
    Where we can go
    Keep you save from harm
    Just take my hand
    Don’t leave me stand
    Come take my hand

    05 – LIKE FOOLS

    Ain’t it funny how some things in life
    don’t make any sense at all
    Feelings like running water
    For a moment there I imagined
    we were naked on the beach,
    slow dancing under the moon and stars
    There is nothing else to it

    I can’t wait
    I’m sure
    I wanna dance some more
    Lie here with me
    We’ll fall in love as if we’re free

    I’m not someone who comes on strong
    but with you I kind of lose control
    You’re like a river that runs through me
    Wanna celebrate instead of complicate
    caus’ woman, you’re so damn free
    I want everyone to notice
    there is nothing else to it

    I can’t break
    I’m sure
    I wanna dance some more
    Lie here with me
    We’ll fall in love as if we’re free

    Summer is here
    We’ve made it through another year
    Wanna dance with you
    like fools with nothing left to lose
    Ahooo oohoo… (2x)
    Why hesitate?
    Come on celebrate for a moment
    running free
    And everyone will notice
    there is nothing else to it

    I can’t wait
    I’m sure
    I wanna dance some more
    Lie here with me
    We’ll fall in love as if we we’re free
    Summer is here
    We made it through another year
    Wanna dance with you
    like fools with nothing left to lose
    Ahooo oohoo
    I wanna dance the night with you
    Ahooo oohoo
    Like fools with nothing left to lose
    Ahooo oohoo
    I wanna dance the night with you
    Ahooo oohoo
    Like fools with nothing left to lose

    06 – FROZEN

    I wake up
    One April morning and I realize
    Leafs come falling down
    No warnings under a clear blue sky
    Tried too cradle love
    For all the right reasons I can’t find
    Buying me some time
    Monday morning 10.30 or so

    I was gone
    For the years to come
    They wouldn’t leave me with a loaded gun
    Wasted
    My knees bruised from falling to the ground
    Memories fading out
    I feel the need to embrace your love
    I say my prayers out loud
    Try not to cry
    Just say goodbye
    One day later 02.30 or so
    You were gone
    for the years to come
    Never knowing where I belonged
    A new meaning for the word lost
    A life never known
    my heart was down in the frozen ground

    Can I come home
    cause I feel tired
    I left you woundless in my wondering why
    In my old room
    I’m dancing with you now
    I’ve lost more than just you alone
    Why ohohooo 4x

    You’re gone
    though every song echoes a spark of what was lost
    Making the best of all these scars
    I guess they make us who we are
    This lonely boy up in his room is now fully grown
    While the years gone by
    I couldn’t stop myself from asking why
    Careless of those who should have valued the most
    A Life never known
    My heart felt safe in the frozen ground

    Can I come home
    cause I feel tired
    I’m left here woundless in my wondering why
    In my old room
    I’m dancing with you now
    I’ve lost more than just you alone
    Why ohohooo

    07 – SEA

    Let’s go dancing in the rain
    It’ll wash away all control
    Lie down with me on the beach
    We’ll get drunk and search for our souls
    Let’s find out what’s in between
    The lights of what used to be
    Maybe it’s okay
    Maybe it’s all right

    Hold on to me now
    Hold your breath,
    there’s still time
    Who knows what we’ll find
    If we leave it all behind
    Let’s go hunt down the ones who lie
    The ones who tell you there’s no goodbye
    Light up firecrackers in June
    Chase the stars and bark at the moon
    Let’s go right that distant way
    It’s the journey that keeps us safe
    It will be okay
    and we’ll be all right

    Hold on to me now
    Hold your breath,
    there’s still time
    Who knows what we’ll find
    if we leave it all behind

    I know the water is cold
    So cold it makes our bones ache
    But I’m sure all that it takes
    is just a leap of faith
    Things we used to hold on to,
    it’s time to throw them all away
    New horizons will lead our way

    Hold on to me now
    Hold your breath,
    there’s still time
    Who knows what we’ll find
    if we leave it all behind

    Who knows what we’ll find

    08 – DEAR SOUL

    Time waits for no one they say
    You came along I had to slow my pace
    I felt your heartbeat, your soul
    There’s nothing now that ever could mean more
    I’ll pick you up, I’ll pull you close
    There’s a love, a strength I’ve never known
    This house is now a home
    So sleep, I’ll kiss your eyes
    A smile awaits you when you rise
    Hush, don’t cry

    Follow your feelings, your dreams
    Take the time to question what may seem
    Full of promise, full of hope
    Step by step you learn to value both
    Tears may come, dreams may go
    You’ll go too fast, though it feels to slow
    Then you’ll learn to crawl
    Soon you will walk
    You learn to talk
    May you speak up when wrong is done
    Be true to who you are
    Sleep, I’ll kiss your eyes
    Love awaits you when you rise
    You’ll be safe tonight
    Hush now, don’t you cry

    Learn to trust
    Search to find
    Feel the beauty, imperfections of life
    Treasure what feels right,
    don’t lie
    Some will speed you up
    Some slow you down
    Something good may come from anyone
    I love you, no matter what
    Sleep, I’ll kiss your eyes
    Love awaits you when you rise
    Hush, don’t cry
