Read the lyrics

You came from the icy mountain,
Passing by slowly down my lane,
The whole world trapped in your eyes,
Full of the reasons why the wind cries

You kept saying you would leave one day,
You needed to break free and go far away,
But every night, you stayed by the fire,
While we were singing about our growing desire

And high up above I hear the song of the sky,
Everytime you tell me I’m the only one
And down below I see the rhythm of the sea,
Everytime you say there’s only me

My head is lost in stars,
There’s no way to heal those scars,
Since you’ve left my home,
I dream of meeting you again when we were young

And high up above I heard the song of the sky,
Everytime you told me I was the only one
And down below I saw the rhythm of the sea,
Everytime you said there was only me

You were the one that made my heart beat,
You were the one that stopped the cold and the heat,
You were the one that pumped my blood,
You were the one that made me believe in God

And high up above I heard the song of the sky,
Everytime you told me I was the only one
And down below I saw the rhythm of the sea,
Everytime you said there was only me

Everytime he says I’m the only one…

Heartache Balladcalirezo & Mahel di Menuna

Read the lyrics

They spoke about this and that
Under a quite painful rain
Trying to ignore water as they chat
Soaked to the skin, suffering from strain

The heads are dizzy
The steps are clumsy
They walk in life aimlessly
Their path shall be blurry

Suddenly she felt burning hands around her face
And warm lips kissing her cold neck
Time stopped, her heart frozen in a moment of grace
She bursted into tears, drowning as a wreck

The heads are dizzy
The steps are clumsy
They walk in life aimlessly
Their path shall be blurry

Her mind played the scene over and over again
It was the one of a puppet in an endless loop
She grew sadder and sadder then
Cause of butterflies in her stomach she began to droop

Will his head be dizzy ?
Will his steps be clumsy ?
Will they walk in life aimlessly ?
Can their path be less blurry ?

One day she gathered her courage
To ask him shyly if he remembers that kiss
But he was as silent as a blank page
He won’t recall any of this

Her head is dizzy
Her steps are clumsy
She will walk in life aimlessly
The path is more and more blurry

Her arm has raised in the dim light
She reached him and threw herself on his chest
He gripped her shoulders like the other night
And let his head fall heavily on her breast

The heads are dizzy
The steps are clumsy
They walk in life aimlessly
Their path is now blurry

Gravity pulled him down to the concrete
He dropped from life, as he fell apart
Her beloved prince was lying at her feet
with a knife in his heart…

Passing Traveller – Mahel di Menuna


Mahel di Menuna – composition, lyrics, guitars & vocals

Read the lyrics

I came with spring, I’ll be gone with summer,
You know there are places that are cold in the winter
And where people are needed by the fireplaces
To play the guitar and bring smiles to faces
I sure hope that my voice and my prays,
Will last longer than the snowy days,
But I won’t give up, even though I can,
As long as I can walk this earth, I’ll try and save the souls of men

So darling I won’t stay here forever,
I’m just a passing traveler…
And as I cross the land, I’ll pray for God,
To hear my song ’til I’m home again…

My life is a long journey, I don’t tie loose ends,
I always dance with strangers, keep changing friends,
No matter where or when, I laugh at life,
Isn’t that the only way to live it without any strife?
I moke the serious girls and all their pretty make-up,
Can’t stand to see them tidy themselves up
I may not be the perfect woman
Yet I’ll stick to this until I’m done

So darling I won’t stay here forever,
I’m just a passing traveler…
And as I cross the land, I’ll pray for God,
To hear my song ’til I’m home again…

Still now your tears freeze on your cheeks,
As you see me go far beneath the high peaks
Back on the road, the Lord watching over my shoulder,
I try and get away from your sweet little whisper
But the further I go, the sadder my songs get,
I don’t bring joy no more, I did stay with you when I left,
I believe you called my bluff and took my pain,
Darling, I’m longing to call you home again

Call you home again… home again… home again…

Broken Dollcalirezo & Mahel di Menuna

Read the lyrics

Baby girl is running on the grass
Singing louder under a dark sky
Baby girl is dancing with a doll
Crying beside an old cherry tree

Little girl is lying on the grass
Sleeping deeper and deeper
Little girl with the doll on her chest
Dreaming beneath the drizzle

Sweet doll, you know my secret
You never dropped me… but
You never helped me… but
I’ll always keep you in my heart

Pretty girl you’ll never run fast enough
To leave the grey clouds
Pretty girl you’ll never climb high enough
To fly away and kiss the sky

Sweet doll, you broke yourself
When you let me down… but
I never blamed you… but
You never spoke since you forgot to cry

You just forgot to cry.

In Your Arms – Mahel di Menuna


Mahel di Menuna – composition, lyrics, piano, guitar & vocals

Read the lyrics

They’ve often told me I was wrong,
To trust your flaws and listen to your songs
I didn’t hear,
Neither their warnings nor my fear…

Won’t you hold me in your arms,
Won’t you smile if I am close,
Lying in your bed
Can’t you see how crazy my mind goes tonight ?
And any-
Time that I see you,
I wish there still could be you and me…

I feel colder and colder everyday
My heart beats slower baby as you walk away
You melted my mind such a long time ago
Now can’t you see how it’s buried in snow

Would you hold me in your arms,
Would you tell me it’s alright,
Lying in your bed
You don’t see how I want you to ignite my night…
And any-
Time that I see you,
I wish there still could be you and me…

You used to take me to parties
With you I always felt at ease
And now, during these lonely nights,
I can’t help but cry about the way you leave at twilight

I wish you’d hold me in your arms,
Wish you’d laugh if you see me close,
Lying in this bed, for the last time,
My mind suddenly knows
that you-
Won’t ever hold me in your arms
Won’t smile and pull me close
I’ve left your home and bed,
Baby: I’ve left some tears on the pillows

Would you hold me in your arms,
Would you tell me it’s alright,
Lying in your bed
You don’t see how I want you to ignite my night…

Tin Hearted – Mahel di Menuna


Mahel di Menuna – composition, lyrics, guitar & vocals

Read the lyrics

At first you were nice and sweet
I was happy you wanted to meet
A kind smile and kind eyes
Much better than the other guys
Didn’t knew I wasn’t getting
Into this trap you were setting

This love you wanted to tie me to
This thing you wanted to share too

And I’m telling you one more time
Don’t ask for another try
You will not change my mind
I know you just tried to make me blind

Don’t you dare call me tin hearted
Cause you know that the only problem is your
Love that has twisted your prays
Love that has changed your ways
Love that has made you bad
Love that has driven you mad

So don’t you dare call me tin hearted
Cause you know that the only problem is your
Love that has ruined the game
Love that has brought the shame
Love that you’d like to sing
Love that can only sting

And you’re asking me again and again
To think until we think the same
Wondering again and again
Who’s the one to blame
Hoping I’m crying but it’s only rain
Your bones are burning, caught in the flames

Of this love you want me to feel
This thing you want us to be

And I’m telling you one more time
Don’t ask for another try
You will not change my mind
I know you just tried to make me blind

Don’t you dare call me tin hearted
Cause you know that the only problem is your
Love that has twisted your prays
Love that has changed your ways
Love that has made you bad
Love that has driven you mad

So don’t you dare call me tin hearted
Cause you know that the only problem is your
Love that has ruined the game
Love that has brought the shame
Love that you’d like to sing
Love that can only sting

Now every little thing you do,
Every joke you laugh to,
Crosses me in a way I can’t explain,
Am I to fear to ever reign
As this queen you tell me I am
This part I already play in your dreams,

You don’t see, all the doors I slam,
You won’t agree, we aren’t in the same teams

You’ve had me read all your past,
Said you were an outcast
For so many years, only wishing…
For someone to your making…

Don’t you dare call me tin hearted
Cause you know that the only problem is your
Love that has twisted your prays
Love that has changed your ways
Love that has made you bad
Love that has driven you mad

So don’t you dare call me tin hearted
Cause you know that the only problem is your
Love that has ruined the game
Love that has brought the shame
Love that you’d like to sing
Love that can only sting

But I’m not the one,
No I won’t survive
To this tenderness you slain me with
And guess what?, honey!, you are so broken hearted
Yet I ain’t the right girl,
No I ain’t the right girl,
For you to love.

Angel – Mahel di Menuna


Mahel di Menuna – composition, lyrics, piano, guitar & vocals

Read the lyrics

Searching for a sweet angel,
All around the world
Searching for a sweet angel,
All around the world,

I’ve finally found one,
But I got one regret,
He’ll keep on flying,
He won’t come to the ground,

Finding the right angel,
Isn’t easy task
Finding a way to be someone’s angel back,
is hard,

I’ve finally found an angel,
But I got one regret,
He won’t rest,
He won’t lay down on the ground,

on the ground…

Wanting your angel right there,
Every time,
Wanting him by your side,
Every minute of every day,

Not being able,
To see him right there,
Being apart,
Down on the ground…

on the ground…

on…

Oh he won’t lay down,
He’ll keep on flying,
You are alone,
Down on the ground,

Yeah, on the ground.
