The End of a Dream (Jimmy Tillier) At last, I’m in the place I love Here I live, the life, I want It’s the night, and I am dreaming But something strange is happening This whole world of illusions slowly begins to fade away The end is near, the day is here I’m inconscient, but I know it I’m in a world I created This is the place where I can rest, I am dreaming, but I’m living Every night, I’m born and die I dream my life, and live in dreams And when the sun begins to rise A sad real life is breaking in Reality is far away But I am fine, I wanna stay This is heaven, I know it’s fake But I can’t fight, I’m gonna wake Real world is dull, all is routine No one is free, by any means Everyone’s life is just the same You want to change, but all is vain I am dreaming / I want to stay / I don’t want to wake... I’m inconscient, but I know it I’m in a world I created This is the place where I can rest, I am dreaming, but I’m living Every night, I’m born and die I dream my life, and live in dreams And when the sun begins to rise A sad real life is breaking in Reality is far away But I am fine, I wanna stay This is heaven, I know it’s fake But I can’t fight, I’m gonna wake I know one day, we will all die Let’s live the night, so we don’t care I wish one day, the sun will burn To free people from their lives.

I will light a candle (Jimmy Tillier) When I came home tonight, everything was quiet Next to your dead body, you left me a letter You wanted to suicide, that was your secret You couldn’t bear the world, you felt too much anger I’m a dreamer, you told me how to remember In your words, you asked me to look in the fire I will light a candle In the fire flicking I will see you dancing I will light a fire To feel again your warmth And love you forever I will live with your flame Trying to forget my pain Everything is lightened Your last will is granted I will light a candle In the fire flicking I will see you dancing I will light a fire To feel again your warmth And love you forever

The Book of Destiny (Jimmy Tillier) I found book in an old library It’s been forever now My name engraved on the cover This book was all my destiny I was curious, and started to read All my life was, to me, revealed And on the last of all pages, I read my death One night a car would end my life. I saw my death in all the lines All was written, there were no lies One day, a light with dreadful shine Will write «end» on my storyline After reading I tried real hard All these years to change my future With no success, I soon realized That everything was to occur I saw my death in all the lines All was written, there were no lies One day, a light with dreadful shine Will write «end» on my storyline Whatever way I chose, Whatever thing I tried I couldn’t change my destiny On that sad day, I saw the light I was prepared, that was my fate, You then appeared, and pushed me right You saved my life, and disappeared I had to die, that was my fate You saved my life, and now I’m free You cut my string of destiny I’m now writing my own story

Open your Eyes (Jimmy Tillier) Close your eyes, and in the dark Try to forget all you like Try to think about the world Try to feel people around Close your eyes, and free your mind You don’t see, but you’re not blind You’re starting to feel humanity Open your eyes and feel dazzled Open your eyes and see the truth Open your eyes and meet your world No illusions, no fakes or lies Open your eyes, and all is bright Open your eyes Look around you there are people You didn’t see them all before Now that your eyes are all opened You are not alone any more You didn’t know you were in jail In the comfort of your own house Outside there’s fear, and violence But you’re not said there’s something else Open your eyes and feel dazzled Open your eyes and see the truth Open your eyes and meet the world For the first time, without blinkers No illusions, no fakes or lies There are colors, hopes and smiles Open your eyes, and all is bright Open your eyes Open your eyes and discover, meet, look, listen, feel, share, love, smile, laugh and....live Open your eyes and feel the light Open your eyes and see the truth Open your eyes and meet the world For the first time, without blinkers No illusions, no fakes or lies There are colors, hopes and smiles Open your eyes, and all is bright Open your eyes

No Memories (Jimmy Tillier) Where am I ? I have no idea For all I know, I’m home On a table, there’s a diary, I have to read, every morning In that diary, I write my life People I meet are in pictures, For each moment, drawings and words, In all this book are my memories Everyday I live a new life I know everything has a past Whereas everyone remembers Every night I dream and forget Parts of my life in front of me I’m sure they’re all in my story Not sure of my identity I see some signs reassuring me The only help I carry Is a diary always handy It looks after my fragile past My memories are sealed to the last Everyday I live a new life I know everything has a past Whereas everyone remembers Every night I dream and forget I don’t remember the past day All my hopes and fears are away All the past I have is written The night my memories, are stolen End of the day, I sort memories I keep only the laughs and smiles If I don’t like, the day I lived The page is torn, and all has gone I live my life always happy During the night, I forget all Everyday I live a new life I know everything has a past Whereas everyone remembers Every night I dream and forget I don’t remember the past day All my hopes and fears are away All the past I have is written The night my memories, are stolen
