Michael Schulte Holding Back The Fire

Come on and open this door

I know that you’re craving for more

So why’d you think

You and your heart

Will just fall apart

By opening this door

Your longing is burning a hole

You can hear the call in your soul

And it’s calling

Cause out of sight

Is not out of mind

And flames are still alive

Somewhere deep inside

You make the days feel so cold and so lonely

Though the sun’s rising right in your heart

You’re holding back the fire

Holding back yourself

Holding back your life

While you’re drowning, drowning yourself

You need to get rid of the fears

Stop doubting and burst into tears

Cause there is no reason to crawl

And stay on the ground

So rise and face the fears

Get up and take these steps

You make the days feel so cold and so lonely

Though the sun’s rising right in your heart

You’re holding back the fire

Holding back yourself

Holding back your life

While you’re drowning, drowning

It’s not that you don’t know what to do

It’s not that your heart feels lost or slow

It’s not that you don’t know what to do

It’s not that your heart feels lost or slow

You make the days feel so cold and so lonely

Though the sun’s rising right in your heart

You’re holding back the fire

Holding back yourself

Holding back your life

While you’re drowning, drowning yourself

Michael Schulte Dear Doubt

Dear doubt, you wore out a path to my door

And it’s needless to say that there’s no way that I want you here

Dear doubt, please just go

You’ve been chasing me too long, so please just go

Oh my God, the walls are closing in

The pressure’s on, the floor is caving in

So better just leave and run

Through the fire, I will just run

Over fences I will jump

Cut the wires to the wild

Oh, I will run

Dear boy, let’s go back in time while we can

Oh we could sit in the sun and then put a Sally Oldfield record on

Dear boy, let me see the world through your eyes

With no fear of falling down, we’d just get up off the ground and then run

Oh my God, the walls are closing in

The pressure’s on, the floor is caving in

So better just leave and run

Through the fire, I will just run

Over fences I will jump

Cut the wires to the wild

Oh, I will run

I know I’d better run

No more hesitation

I just gotta run

Oh my God, the walls are closing in

The pressure’s on, the floor is caving in

So better just leave and run

Through the fire, I will just run

Over fences I will jump

Cut the wires to the wild

Oh, I will run

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
