Track Name: Martha's Same Old Blues
MARTHA’S SAME OLD BLUES
(Francesco Chebat, Martha J.)

You come back in the morning
Pack your things and you’re gone
You just say it’s all over
And leave me here with the same old blues

Burning tears and cold mornings
You don’t care and I love too much.
So now you win and I’m the loser
All I get is the same old blues

Babe, our love was such a bad deal
Wasted my time, crushed all my dreams
Now I’m the one who’s broken hearted
I’m the one who cries

Those who love always go crazy
Those who cheat never go wrong
So tonight I am singing
Brand new words for the same old blues
Track Name: Here and Now
HERE AND NOW
(Francesco Chebat, Martha J.)

They say love doesn’t come along every day
It’s a game, and you decide if you want to play
They say true love may not wait
What you don’t take, slips away

But I know you’re the one who could break my heart
‘cause with you everything is happening so fast
With you I can’t make up my mind
Is it all wrong or all right?

But tonight I want you
And if it’s wrong or right I really don’t mind

You’ve got all it takes to make a girl fall in love
And I should hide away the key of my soul
You smile and I ask myself
Will it be heaven or hell?

But tonight I want you
And if I go to hell I really don’t mind

Baby you - you’re taking me higher and higher
You’re so good, you make me feel like a star
But whichever way I look at it
I may lose or I may win

But tonight I want you
And if I’ll lose it all I really don’t mind
Track Name: Pas de Deux
PAS DE DEUX
Francesco Chebat, Martha J.

I’ll be back home tonight
I will take the next plane
And I’ll be there with you tonight

There’ll be good and bad news
There’ll be candles and wine
And we’ll forget all the world for one night

‘cause all the things people say
Make a mess in our soul
We always let them cut too deep

But tonight I’ll be home
There’ll be kisses and smiles
And we’ll forget all our cares for one night

You’ll take my hand and sing a song softly
We’ll close our eyes and dance – close our eyes and dance
Track Name: Room For a New Dream
ROOM FOR A NEW DREAM
(Francesco Chebat, Martha J.)

There’s a road in my dreams
And the same street I walk every morning
I take notes, I make plans
I build places to hide from the darkness

If I run, I may stumble
If I trust in you, then you may let me down
But I can’t sleep longing for your lips

There are words I can’t say
There are stories I tell to feel better
I can fight, I can win
But spend so many nights building new fears

If I fly, I may crash down
If I fall in love, then I may cry again
But I can’t sleep longing for your lips
Hold me and I’ll make some room for a new dream

(…)

There are games that I play
But I try not to cheat and not to gamble
No desires, no regrets
I’ve got dens where I keep all my secrets

If I live I may feel pain
If I fall in love, then I may cry again
But I can’t sleep longing for your lips
Hold me and I’ll make some room for a new dream
Track Name: Run the Risk of Love
RUN THE RISK OF LOVE
(Francesco Chebat, Martha J.)

Take my shattered dreams
Pieces of broken china and
Walk me to the shore
Throw them into the water and
Please don’t say a word
Just listen to the sound of our steps while we go home
You know it’s far from easy to run the risk of love

Night will slip away
We have been given too short a time to live our dreams
Maybe we should forget them all
Will I let you stay?
Or listen to the sound of your steps that slip away
You know it’s never easy to run the risk of love

Life’s a secret path
Nobody knows where it takes
But this time I’ll be brave
I’ll let you take my hand and
You’ll lead me to a place
Where I will have to face this new unfamiliar will
You know it’s never easy to run the risk of love
Track Name: So Far
SO FAR
(Francesco Chebat, Martha J.)

The rain was quietly telling her tale
We slowed down to listen
Secrets she stole to winds
Stories she learned from clouds

I started following all the sings
Coffee grounds and clovers
Questioning stars and moon
Love never comes too soon

But then you called my name
And my night exploded
You were the missing part of my dreams

Then I was yours and I loved you so far
Now you’re still here and you loved me so far

(...)
And when you call my name
My life exploded
You were the missing tile in my life

Then I was yours and I loved you so far
Now we’re still here and you loved me so far
Track Name: Greenland
GREENLAND
(Francesco Chebat, Martha J.)

A new day comes from the ocean
I still recall fragments of dreams

You say it’s time to move over
You throw away fragments of life

Never too soon, always too late
Clouds never stop, why should you stay?
Wild as the wind, you won’t look back
Under the glow of the northern light dance

Our love’s grown cold like this strange sun
You leave and I can’t sleep at night

(…)

Always too soon, never too late
Tides never stop, why should I wait?
I won’t get lost, I won’t look back
Under the glow of the northern light dance

We never cared, now we’re sorry
Because our love melted so fast
Track Name: Little Angel Eyes
Little angel eyes

I wait for the moon to rise
I hope you won’t be late
Tonight the stars are crowding the sky
I can’t stand their light without you

They shine like angel eyes
They smile

Let me not wait too long for the moon to rise
Let me not be alone little angel eyes


Once again I’m losing control
I hope you won’t be bad
Here alone in darkness I feel
Life can be much more than a dream

It shines like angel eyes
It smiles

Let me not wait too long for my love to come
Let me not be alone little angel eyes
