Mellika Acoustic Quartet EP

 

Authentically

I`m writing popsongs and I like to life my live as I please

Just listen to my songs if you wanna know me

Behind the curtains I deeply love opera and jazz

But on the surface I`m another one of them

 

But I am more than just a cutie face with an exotic name

Just step right in and take a closer look around

It isn`t easy but I`ll try to be authentically

I`ll let you know and turn me inside out

 

A-a-a-a-a authentically, oh

 

I like my mic to be my diary and I like to be me

But I confess, that this effect doesn't work

When I'm with you, when I'm afraid, when I'm a bit insecure

I get the shape of a chameleon

 

And after all I lose it all my strong personality

I change to what you expect me to be

I try to be funny, try to be as tough, as tough as it seems

But by that way I'm just like a million

 

There are all too many others they are already there

I don't have to be like them I don't have to be like them

There are all too many others they are already there

I don't have to be like them I don't have to be like them

 

Find your way

It isn't easy to be taken serious

When you're young at heart

Don't know who you really are

 

You try this, try that, find it out

Your personality, individuality

 

Who you're gonna be, when you' re big?

A singer in a bar? A famous movie star?

A business-woman in a designer dress

Or a donut seller or a story teller?

 

A huge question mark is standing over your life

But you don't get dizzy, it's enough, that you're too busy to

Enjoy yourself, so lean back and let it happen

I'm sure, life will provide the best if you let it

 

Find your way

Get away, yeah yeah

Find your way

Get away, yeah yeah

 

It won't get easier when you're grown

So don't grow up too fast, it is a trap they said

Stay young at heart and mind 'till you die,

Don't you give up on trying new things, discover why!

 

Once, you gonna know, who you are

Stay true to your own path, then it can take you far

To walk it, you don't need a designer dress

Put on some real good shoes, sometimes you'll get the blues

 

An exclamation mark is standing over your life

Don't you hesitate too long, and take your chance before it's gone

Enjoy yourself, sometimes you win, sometimes you learn

I'm sure life will provide the chances you earn

 

Molten Blue

Never knew

I was seeking you

All the time

All that I've been through

All the years

All the empty rooms

When a painting

Can become the truth

 

Where have you been all the time?

What if I hadn't drawn the line?

 

What if … ?

Where were you all the time?

I've seen you

But I didn't see the sign

Where were you?

Where have you been all this time?

Hiding in another lonely life

 

When I think and sing of

Of what’s forgotten

When the pain stops you know the past is through

I wanna lay down in silky meadows

And sink and dive into tones of molten blue

 

Until the morning let me hide and heal there

Until the day comes leaning 'gainst the sun

I will accept and crawl out of the rear view mirror

Paleness dripping, cracks up by a frown

 

Safe in alabaster and ivory chambers

Safe from moldy cellars or deranged lovers

Safe from weird stairways or drunken parents

Arcs of satin and rooftops of stone

 

Safe until I’m strong

Safe but on my own

Will my saving be my drowning, oh

 

What if … ?

Where were you all the time?

I've seen you

But I didn't see the sign

Where were you?

Where have you been all this time?

Hiding in another lonely

 

Life

You were there all the time

Not only

Just when I recognized the sign

Knowing love

Not until you came along

Escaping from another lonely life

 

If I was lost

Now that I was found

What once for me

Seemed a familiar sound

Now is banished

How foreign that can be

When a paining

Becomes reality

 

Travelling

Oh travelling, oh travelling you touched my wounded heart

Although I decided not to let anyone in

Oh travelling, oh travelling she doesn`t call me back

I feel as foolish as I`ve already been

 

Should have known better, should have known better from the start

Should have known better, should have known better, but I can`t

 

No one can

And that`s the tripping part in travelling

 

Oh travelling, oh travelling did you meet this Mr. Fly?

Always joking, always planning things but never passing by

Oh travelling, tell me travelling did you see this come along?

Have you written all this song all alone?

 

Should I have listened, should I have listened and learned

Should I have wisdom, should I have wisdom this turn

 

I take another turn, yeah, yeah, yeah

And that`s the gruesome part in travelling

 

Write her a letter, write him a letter, tell it so

Write her a letter, write him a letter, letting go

 

Oh Traveling, oh travelling, you sweetened up my heart I

You opened up the fist that held it tight

Oh Traveling, oh travelling, what will become of it?

Now that your I journey`s already begun to fade away

 

Will some remain and will something stay and remind

Will some remain and will something stay and remind

 

This time, yeah, oh this time, ooh

 

Winter

You, you're like disease, you captured me for so long

You, and still I had the strength to walk along

You, you follow me even in my sleep

Wanna get rid, wanna get rid of it

 

You, a big bad black fat ugly crow that`s what you are

You, fly away, fly away, let go!

You, and it`s so cold, it`s so damn cold inside of you

You've frozen my heart, frozen my heart, can't love

 

It`s still winter and I keep my head I keep my head up high

It`s still winter and I keep my head from falling down and die

It`s still winter and I think I didn't deserve such a hard time

It`s still winter and I keep on shoveling keep on shoveling - the snow aside

 

And I feel the wind is blowing, It`s freaking cold outside

And the freezing winds are turning, they turned the tide

ooh I have survived, yeah yeah yeah yeah
