Michael Schulte I’m Not Gonna Find You

I’m not running out of alibis

So inventive

I’m a little scared of waking up

In someone else’s dream

It’s so unreal

Lost in phrases

Left no trace

All I can see is the moon

Wrapped up in silence

All I can say it’s too soon

Dawn is breaking, dusk has gone

Waking up the morning sun

I’m not gonna find you

I can’t fight the ghost of you in me

You’re in my head

Wonder how your voice would sound to me

Whispering “I’ll be true”

But still I’m here

Thoughts colliding

Come undone

All I can see is the moon

Wrapped up in silence

All I can say it’s too soon

Dawn is breaking, dusk has gone

Waking up the morning sun

I’m not gonna find you

All I can see is the moon

Wrapped up in silence

All I can say it’s too soon

Dawn is breaking, dusk has gone

Waking up the morning sun

I’m not gonna find you

Michael Schulte Rock And Scissors

We’re like oil and water

Never meant to be together

Just strangers to each other

We’re like rock and scissors

Where one beats the other

Oh no matter what

We are strangers to each other

Strangers to each other

You saw my walls tumbling down

And threw my heart to the ground

You let it burn, you let it burn

I lock my heart, I hide the key

I can never make you love me

You let it burn, you let it burn

I’m falling, falling, falling

You let it burn, you let it burn

I’m crawling, crawling, crawling

You let it burn, you let it burn

It’s like putting out a fire, with a can of gasoline

The flames grow higher and higher

You leave smoke pillars, rising from the skyline

Each one higher than the other

You saw my walls tumbling down

And threw my heart to the ground

You let it burn, you let it burn

I lock my heart, I hide the key

I can never make you love me

You let it burn, you let it burn

I’m falling, falling, falling

You let it burn, you let it burn

I’m crawling, crawling, crawling

You let it burn, you let it burn

Now I’m sitting here with a piece of paper

Trying to get it down and off my mind

All I know is that I am broken, I am broken

You saw my walls tumbling down

And threw my heart to the ground

You let it burn, you let it burn

I lock my heart, I hide the key

I can never make you love me

You let it burn, you let it burn

I’m falling, falling, falling

You let it burn, you let it burn

I’m crawling, crawling, crawling

You let it burn, you let it burn

Michael Schulte Arrival

One morning I was laying in a bed

My thoughts running out, where do I need to go from here

I saw the birds outside the room

Why they’re here and not somewhere else, I can see

Arrival here, arrival there

Where is my home? I don’t know

Arrival here, arrival there

I have no place to go

I walk around in this big world

As lonely as I am

And I have to walk this way alone

Arrival here, arrival there

Where is my home? I don’t know

Arrival here, arrival there

I have no place to go

Arrival here, arrival there

Where is my home? I don’t know

Arrival here, arrival there

I have no place to go

Michael Schulte Hold The Rhythm

Slow down all alone

A secret mission

Small towns hold my soul

[?]

Slow the boats, slow the boats

But hold the rhythm

Rivers running through my veins

Each turn is different

Any place that’s not the same

I stop and visit

Slow the boats, slow the boats

But hold the rhythm

Untie this rope

Here comes the weather

But one day I hope

Stay forever, ever

So far away from home

So hold the rhythm

I got a place that floats

Oh hold the rhythm

Row the boat, row the boats

And hold the rhythm

Hold the note, hold the notes

And keep on singing

Every town is hard to leave

So come now with me

Paddle and no broken seats

Is all that we need

Slow the boats, slow the boats

But hold the rhythm

But hold the rhythm

Untie this rope

Here comes the weather

But one day I hope

Stay forever, ever

So far away from home

So hold the rhythm

I got a place that floats

Oh hold the rhythm

Row the boat, row the boats

And hold the rhythm

Hold the note, hold the notes

And keep on singing

You can call me a traveler

Or you can say I’m alone

But I won’t trade this for nothing

No way, no way

So far away from home

So hold the rhythm

I got a place that floats

Oh hold the rhythm

Row the boat, row the boats

And hold the rhythm

Hold the note, hold the notes

And keep on singing

So far away from home

So hold the rhythm

I got a place that floats

Oh hold the rhythm

Row the boat, row the boats

And hold the rhythm

Hold the note, hold the notes

And keep on singing

Michael Schulte You Let Me Walk Alone

I’m a dreamer, a make believer

I was told that you were, too

I love the silence and the clear horizon

And I got that all from you

Every now and then I’m drawn to places

Where I hear your voice or see your face

And every little thought will lead me right back to you

I was born from one love of two hearts

We were three kids and a loving mum

You made this place a home

A shelter from the storm

You said I had one life and a true heart

I tried my best and I came so far

But you will never know

‘Cause you let me walk this road alone

My childhood hero will always be you

And no one else comes close

I thought you’d lead me when life’s misleading

That’s when I miss you most

Every now and then I’m drawn to places

Where I hear your voice or see your face

And every little thought will lead me right back to you

I was born from one love of two hearts

We were three kids and a loving mum

You made this place a home

A shelter from the storm

You said I had one life and a true heart

I tried my best and I came so far

But you will never know

‘Cause you let me walk this road alone

Ohhhh, ohhhh, ohhhh

I was born from one love of two hearts

We were three kids and a loving mum

You made this place a home

A shelter from the storm

You said I had one life and a true heart

I tried my best and I came so far

But you will never know

‘Cause you let me walk this road alone

Michael Schulte Sophie

I see you stand against the wall

I take your hand, I take your fall

And as we lay here on the ground

Burnin’ the same, inside and out

Sophie, Sophie

My heart’s on fire when I see you

My heart’s on fire when I see you

An empty throne, our king is gone

Flame feels cold, the light glows on

Oh my little girl, time will pass

And we’ll grow strong by looking back

Sophie, Sophie

My heart’s on fire when I see you

My heart’s on fire when I see you

Michael Schulte Mountain Spring

Under this earth, deep in the ground

There’s a river flowing, making hardly a sound

And the water is pure, with the lightness of sky

Held in the weight of a mountain so high

Mountain spring, come out of the rock

And fall into the arms of the sea

Mountain spring, come out of the rock

And shower your tears on me

The heat of the sun wears on your skin

And opens all the cracks where the cold gets in

The changing winds will batter and blow

A mountain may crumble but a river will always flow

Mountain spring, come out of the rock

And fall into the arms of the sea

Mountain spring, come out of the rock

And shower your tears on me

Michael Schulte Flicker

Silence, I’m drowned

With your hair next to mine

These pretty eyes could never lie like a golden color

These pretty eyes could never lie

Your hands taking mine

Someone freezed the time

These pretty eyes could never lie like an endless desert

These pretty eyes could never lie

Bleeding out just like a river mouthing

I need a hand when they’re washed away by your flicker, flicker, flicker

Stuck here in a cloud

When your sky is around

These pretty eyes could never lie like an evil wizard

These pretty eyes could never lie

Bleeding out just like a river mouthing

I need a hand when I’m washed away by your flicker, flicker, flicker

Flicker, flicker, flicker…

Silence I’m drowned

With your head next to mine

These pretty eyes could never lie like a golden color

These pretty eyes could never lie

I’m bleeding out just like a river mouthing

I need a hand when I’m washed away by your flicker, flicker, flicker

I’m bleeding out just like a river mouthing

I need a hand when I’m washed away by your flicker, flicker, flicker

Michael Schulte The Arising

Out from the ashes a few will arise

Pull down the curtain revealing open eyes

Deep from the fires with a flame in your fist

Marks the return of a man to re-exist

Out from the dust just a few will survive

Pulled from the wreckage to spare another life

Deep from the darkness we live to excess

Kings on a throne wearing crowns of great success

All my life I’ve waited just to lay this burden down

I have heard the calling of the rising of the found

The rising of the found…

Out from the flames underneath all the light

Taking the place where the devil’s out of sight

Deep in the soul and a gleam in the eye

One of a kind and you’re best when you’re alive

Michael Schulte End Of My Days

Nobody told me, nobody said

What I would miss so I was off and away

Out to the south and out to the west

Out of that town

Oh, I was off to find the colors of life

I would sacrifice my time

Where nobody finds me, nobody wants me and nobody’s there

Oh, ’til the day I let you into my head

I was runnin’ away

Now I’m willing to stay

Day by day and on tomorrow I’ll swear

That I follow your way ’til the end of my, end of my days

‘Til the end of my days

Was keeping to go low, keeping it light

No one could follow out to the isle

Out to the east and out to the north

Off and away

But then that day when I was so far away

You would cross my fate and I

Was feelin’ the fire, feelin’ the colors

I was feeling you

Oh, ’til the day I let you into my head

I was runnin’ away

Now I’m willing to stay

Day by day and on tomorrow I’ll swear

That I follow your way ’til the end of my, end of my days

‘Til the day I let you into my head

I was runnin’ away

Now I’m willing to stay

Day by day and on tomorrow I’ll swear

That I follow your way ’til the end of my, end of my days

‘Til the end of my days (oh, ’til the end of my days)

‘Til the day I let you into my head

I was runnin’ away

Now I’m willing to stay

Day by day and on tomorrow I’ll swear

That I follow your way ’til the end of my, end of my days

Oh, ’til the day I let you into my head

I was runnin’ away

Now I’m willing to stay

Day by day and on tomorrow I’ll swear

That I follow your way ’til the end of my, end of my days

‘Til the end of my days

Oh, ’til the end of my days
