Love Is Gonna Save Me Now I’m going with the flow And love is gonna save me I’ve got nothing else to lean on Just myself to embrace me now Love is gonna save me now I’m looking at the low While feeling high takes me To another world where I don’t feel Like I must be coming down Love is gonna save me now Nothing has to happen In no particular way So in a casual way I surrender now Let the love take me In its river i’ll sway And in a casual way I surrender now I need to take a step Into the empty air below me No way back I gotta trust that when I do My feet will touch the ground Love is gonna save me now I’m looking at the low While feeling high takes me To another world where I don’t feel Like I must be coming down Love is gonna save me now There’s no sense in worrying It won’t take me nowhere So in a casual way I surrender now Let the love take me In its river i’ll sway And in a casual way I surrender now I don’t need no reasons ‘Cause love’s not a treason This life is for living This life is for giving Don’t wanna wait to live Until i die I need to take a step Into the empty air below me No way back I gotta trust That when I do My feet will touch the ground Love is gonna save me now

Under The Scorching Sun Tell me babe what is on your mind Confusion, delusion, illusion In this too fast a life Tell me babe what is going on Did you get the feeling That you’ve seen it all? We all look for reasons where there’re none to be found In our momentary highs That bring our lows about We can’t stop searching We’ve been too long too blind And I just opened up my eyes Under the scorching sun Out in the desert… Tell me babe Are you feeling cold Out there under the scorching sun? ‘Cause I can see right through you And I can breathe right through you And I know What you’re talking about We all look for reasons where there’re none to be found In our momentary highs That bring our lows about We can’t stop searching We’ve been too long too blind And I just opened up my eyes

No, this is not the Justin Bieber cover :) I wrote this song after a long period of living a pretty unhappy life - not knowing different, really. It's only when I realized how much inner self-criticism was going on in my head, that I started to change. Hope you're doing better than me ;) So enjoy and LOVE YOURSELF Look at me rising, slowly rising Lifting my soul off the ground were you ever dreaming of becoming No one else but who you truly are One day I’ll find the love I’ve lost ‘Cause I wasn’t wise One day I’ll understand That to be loved You gotta love yourself One day I’ll come around I can see it now And I’m learning how To live and not just understand That to be loved You gotta love yourself The clouds are clearing Lifting weary moods all around And the sky is ever so blue I’ve left the blues all behind One day I’ll find the love I’ve lost ‘Cause I wasn’t wise One day I’ll understand That to be loved You gotta love yourself One day I’ll come around I can see it now And I’m learning how To live and not just understand That to be loved You gotta love yourself

Since spring is in the air and I figured I'd get us into the mood by sharing "Sunshine" from my debut album. It was a short-lived love affair with a Dutch guy whose eyes looked like mine... Really! We both agreed on it :) I still think of him sometimes, and no my heart is not heavy at all when I do that... Hello sunshine, wherever you are ;) P.S. For some reason, I think of Marvin Gaye when I listen to this song... SUNSHINE “Hello sunshine”, you said to me “You’re my sunshine” And I’ll shine just for you I’ll shine all day baby I’ll count the days Until I see you again ‘Cause oh sunshine You made my day And I’ll shine all night and all day No one ever wrote a song for you so I will No one ever sang a song for you so I will ‘Cause I feel baby Things I haven’t felt for so long And now they’re back May this warmth in my heart last for long And may it melt with yours When I looked into your eyes I felt like I was seeing mine Oh sunshine it felt so good I thought it would last Though you’re gone I know you know I got no heavy heart for you ‘Cause Sunshine I know your troubles Took a heavy toll on you No one ever wrote a song for you so I will No one ever sang a song for you so I will ‘Cause I feel baby Things I haven’t felt for so long And now they’re back May this warmth in my heart last for long And may it melt with yours

A song inspired by my friend's experience... You know that relationship which is a patch for the hole in your heart after you break up and you find a quick substitute ... except for that substitute, you mean so much more than the substitute means to you... Lifetime Lover On the way to nowhere With your hand in mine Sitting in the car, driving downtown You said 'Let's have a word’ There's things that I can hide no more The past won't let me go Believe me I've tried hard.’ Over the past few months I've sensed this is no paradise I was a patch for the hole in your heart Seems like the time has stopped With red lights cutting through the dark And rain and tears touch me As you scream behind “I don't wanna break your heart But there's another She's been with me since the cradle My lifetime lover, The nights are long and I've been longing To be back in the arms That are still waiting for me.' So you expect me now To smile and hide the pain that kills Well, I might just do it And love will take me right through it And when you're happy Think of our good times, up times, All the thrills And when you're sad just know That's how I feel today ‘Cause I don’t wanna wait in vain if there's another She's been with you since the cradle your lifetime lover The nights are long and I've been longing To be in the arms That will be waiting for me

Make sure to listen till the end to hear the virtuoso violin player Renaud Crols! It's worth it! Lyrics: HOME 
 You are my home But you do not see I have hurt your fantasy  But I’m not mean I have found you But you do not care I’ve been to the other side where I believed it couldn’t be wrong I had folded these wings  They used to shiver I found you But you do not see I went home and you crept under my skin You are my home And maybe someday I’ll tell you real stories If I may unveil this ‘Cause lately The secret has lost its meaning and baby I believe that this can’t be wrong I unfolded these wings  That shivered I found you But you do not see  I went home  And you’ve crept under my skin 
 Chorus: Hey you’ve been turning ‘round my head ‘round and ‘round And now I can’t see straight Hey you’ve been turning round my eyes Around and ‘round And now I’m mesmerized 
 Hey you’ve been turning ‘round My head,  my head ‘round and ‘round Hey you’ve been turning round my eyes Around and ‘round And now I’m mesmerized You are my home And I’ve left To go around the world Just to come back To see you, to feel you’ve soaked into me But I can’t steal you 
 I believe that this can’t be wrong I’ve unfolded these wings that shivered I have found you But you do not see  I went home  And you crept under my skin Chorus

Most songs from my debut album "The Other Side" reflect the emotional struggle I was going through at the time. I had experienced a painful break up and I was facing the pain created by my ego's attachment to how things should be, to what I believed was supposed to have happened rather than what actually happened. I didn't want to feel anger and hatred and envy and bitterness when I thought of my ex, but the truth is, I did. And all those feelings were rooted in my beliefs (as they always are). It took me 6,5 years of feeling bitter, scared to open up to love, distrustful of men and relationships... until I fell back into his arms and melted the anger in my heart with forgiveness. As I've learned, forgiveness has nothing to do with condoning something that we believe to be wrong or unjust. It's simply a recognition that everyone does their best from wherever they are in the moment. Years later, I was able to reflect on my behavior from a perspective that I had not seen back then. Based on my current spiritual understanding, I no longer believe that anyone can hurt me. Pain comes from unfulfilled expectations, from arguing with or resisting what is. And managing my expectations, resistance to or acceptance of what is is my job. And as a result, hurting myself by can only be my job. I will be sharing more musings on this in the near future and how it is affecting my songwriting. So stay tuned ~~~ and enjoy! LESSONS TO BE HUMAN Bitterness is the taste That settles in my mouth When I think of you Bitter are all the people Walking angry with their bear dreams Through their blues It’s this fight I face Between my ego and myself It’s the fight we loose When pride’s the one we choose |: We all have to learn our lessons to be human :| |: We all have to learn our lessons to be human :| We all gotta fall, we all gotta fall But we can get up When you’ve lied so many times You started believing your own lies It’s nothing but your own demise ‘Cause there’s no way around What you left behind Bleeding but alive Hello new dawning It’s time to move on You’ve been calling For so long Wake up to another morning Another life And I’m learning Where I went wrong It’s this fight I face Between my ego and myself It’s the fight we loose When pride’s the one we choose |: We all have to learn our lessons to be human :| |: We all have to learn our lessons to be human :| We all gotta fall, we all gotta fall But we can get up
