Track Name: Somebody Told Me So (ft. Bogi Dallos)
Sun is up, by your side, across the sky,
I hope I'm never losing you!
Hypnotized day and night:
watching stars, but in our hearts distance grows!

Somebody told me so,
that you’d drive through abandoned roads!
Somebody told me so (oh).
Somebody told me so,
that you’d swim across the flow just to get me, oh, I wish I knew.

You can’t tell how you feel, if there’s a wall?
What am I supposed to do?
Now you are far, raise your telescope, don’t fall!
Why am I still watching you?

Somebody told me so,
that you’d drive through abandoned roads!
Somebody told me so (oh).
Somebody told me so,
that you’d swim across the flow just to get me, oh.

Baby, come on, come on: I bid I’ll never leave your side
Baby, come on, come on: just tell me how you feel, go now!
You should breathe in, step on: I wish I’ll never lie, wish I never cry - by your side!

Somebody told me so,
that you’d drive through abandoned roads!
Somebody told me so (oh).
Somebody told me so,
that you’d swim across the flow just to get me, oh.

Somebody told me so, that you’d drive through abandoned roads, swim across the flow!
Somebody told me so, that you’d drive through abandoned roads, swim across the flow!
Somebody told me so you would do these things just to get me oh I wish, I wish, I wish I knew…

Promise you’ll never forget that strange night when we met!
Close your eyes and let it happen, at least I know!
Track Name: You And I (ft. Böbe Szécsi)
Welcome to the Isle of You and I,
where clouds are bursting through those flames from the sky!
Do we have a chance to find that hope underneath?
I’m asking you from here: please turn our life into fate!

Oh, hold me tight!
You are the cure for my scars,
just hold me tight!
Like the sky towards the stars!
Hold up until the waves are coming,
I know I won't crash up on it.
Hold up until the waves are coming,
I’ll come when the rain will fall again!

This is just the way how we feel tonight:
You don't wanna go, wanna be around.
Have you seen the place where we can be alive?
I am looking for a sign between the earth and the sky!

Please hold me tight!
You are the cure for my scars,
just hold me tight!
Like the sky towards the stars!
Hold up until the waves are coming,
I know I won't crash up on it.
Hold up until the waves are coming,
I’ll come when the rain will fall again!

When the rain will fall again!
When the rain will fall again!
Hold up until the waves are coming,
I’ll come when the rain will fall again!

Please hold me tight!
You are the cure for my scars,
just hold me tight!
Like the sky towards the stars!

Track Name: Alone at Petrčane
Somebody once told me: “Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darkness’s of the others.”
What have I become? A scorching rive in the pursuit of eventual bliss.
The reason suffocates my own consciousness for good, for all and for none.

I'll keep hiding, low; I stay in the darkness, where no one can find me.
If you are ever looking for a route to my soul, then look into my reflection and run! And please never look back.

I was born in Petrčane, and I will die there. All alone.
Track Name: Open Water (ft. Myra Monoka)
I’m missin’ the best thing: I want you near, I wanna do it right!
Pour a lil’ sunshine sweeten it up, yeah ignite my light!
We’d get lost in the best ways: gettin’ high with my butterflies or deep like the subbass.
Talkin’ out loud, can you hear me now?

Calm, these waves are gonna lead us home, where you can keep me warm!
Where you rock me in the open water - riding me like this all night!

I messed up our last days just like your trust tho’ I never lied
I don’t get why you hangin’ with the new girl when lovin’ supposed to make you fly!
We keep vibing in the first lane: why you feel that buzz when I come around?
Our high is deep like the subbass. Talkin’ out loud, can you hear me now?

Calm, these waves are gonna lead us home, where you can keep me warm!
Where you rock me in the open water - riding me like this all night!
Track Name: Down by the Sea (ft. Sára Herrer)
Let's find some splendid place to get lost,
travel to search for new vibes to take you home!
Throw off your burdens set off across the globe,
and let's meet at the Cape of the Good Hope!

Down by the sea, that's the place where I wanna be!
Down by the sea, that big blue what I feel!
A dawn by the sea, where we can bury our fears and
seek for all the light rays that can make us all just free!

Give me a reason: why we should be alone?
Looking in the inside to find what is home (and)
am I done with all my worries from the unknown?
The touch of salt-n-sand now heals my soul!

Down by the sea, that's the place where I wanna be!
Down by the sea, that big blue what I feel!
A dawn by the sea, where we can bury our fears and
seek for all the light rays that can make us all just free!

This is my odyssey, no place I'd rather be,
This is my odyssey - now back to my own!

Down by the sea, that's the place where I wanna be!
Down by the sea, my heart belongs to here!
A dawn by the sea, where we can bury our fears and
seek for all the light rays that can make us all just free!
Track Name: Wicked (ft. Antonia Vai)
The wicked inside us got stronger than we are,
and stands in the way between us.
I would like to know your darkest side,
things you don’t show!
I would like to know your darkest side!

Sincere love, scattered around this place,
I dream us a shelter from the storms that we create.
Sincere love, I don’t recognize your face,
so easy to break down the mountains we have made.
I don’t know anymore!

The wicked inside us got stronger than we are,
and stands in the way between us.
I would like to know your darkest side,
things you don’t show!
I would like to know your darkest side!

Sincere love, gather around this place,
I found us a shelter from the vows we seem to break.
Sincere love, I don’t recognize our faith,
so easy to deny down the future we must face.
I don’t know anymore!

Where would you,
where would you go?
I don't know anymore.
Track Name: Boat Party (ft. Böbe Szécsi)
Come with us to the boat party,
the water is blue, the sky is upon me.
Inhale our music as everybody,
just dance and don't say sorry!

Seasalt and a sunstroke now refills my used soul,
breaks up a solid stray, this trace is the only way.
Laying back, sand on me, serenity eternally,
awaken dreamworld, bring it in real worlds!

Let this sea, set you free - let this sea, set who you wanna be!
Let this sea, set you free - let this sea, set who you wanna be!

This summer is a nasty party,
sunshine and seaside all and sundry.
Breath in our music as everybody,
now dance and don't say sorry!

Seasalt and a sunstroke now refills my used soul,
breaks up a solid stray, this trace is the only way.
Laying back, sand on me, serenity eternally,
awaken dreamworld, bring it in real worlds!

Let this sea, set you free - let this sea, set who you wanna be!
Let this sea, set you free - let this sea, set who you wanna be!

Here we are on this seaside plain,
now breathing free from an air that's sweet!

Let the sea, set you free!
BOAT PARTY!
