Track Name: Tree Tall Enough
TREE TALL ENOUGH
(Junior Bernucci / Will Geraldo)

I don’t want you here
You bring all those feelings that I thought were gone

Will you help me now?
I know you won’t, you never will but how can I change the past?

And now you see what you have done to me
Before you came along I was so quiet in my own hell
I want to find a tree tall enough
To hang myself, to hide myself and make things just like before

You make me feel so bad
And even worse when I recall those crap stories you used to tell

You easily screwed up
So many lives as well as mine with promises and nothing else

And now you see what you have done to me
Before you came along I was so quiet in my own hell
I want to find a tree tall enough
To hang myself, to hide myself and make things just like before
Track Name: This Is It
THIS IS IT
(Will Geraldo)

You think you know me
You think you know the man you’re looking at
But you have no idea of who I am
You have no idea of who you’re talking to
Nobody knows what goes on inside my head
A simple gesture, a simple smile
That’s easy and anyone can get that

But what about the real thing
A feeling that burns inside
A feeling that hurts up to the point of you asking yourself what it’s worth
Should I go on, should I continue, should I go on
I’m asking myself, should I go on?

Who in here hasn’t heard
Words of praise, love and hate
The fine line between heaven and hell,
Pleasure and suffering

What hurts most is that
Every time I try to get through
I can only do it by shouting and crying
There’s a wall I can never break, there’s a feeling I can never take
But for you it’s easy when all you have to do is turn your back
To the ones who thought they meant something to you

They meant nothing
Track Name: Point Of View
POINT OF VIEW
(Will Geraldo)

Problems come in different sizes
It very much depends on the way you look at it
If you allow me to say
I’ve been there not once or twice but many times
Now, tell me, what do you do?

So you keep your mouth shut
This is what I’m trying to show you
A friend of mine used to say
‘Everything will work itself out’
That may be right, so what are we to do?

Will you act upon your problem?
Will you wait until it gets worse?
Too many questions ? Difficult isn’t it?
For what is worth, for the sake of your well being, do something, will you?

But remember, I’m not giving any advice here.
I’m not good at that.
Only suggestions if you want them
Track Name: Wide Awake (I Am)
WIDE AWAKE (I Am)
(Will Geraldo)

I know you always wanted but you never met any of my fears
You try but you can’t get enough of your own tears
I say you must stop ‘cos you’re going too far, you’re just getting mad
You reply by asking me to leave you alone ‘cos you like to be sad

And I …

I know,
I learnt with you
About this pain that can cut you through
I open my eyes just in time and now I’m awake

It seems to me you will never recover from this dream of yours
I found a way out and I wanted to show you but you locked all the doors
Track Name: Time Won't Stand Still
TIME WON’T STAND STILL
(Will Geraldo)

If you think about it
If you look behind
You will realize
How much already happened

Day after day
In a fast pace
No matter what you do
You wouldn’t even notice

This thing will fucking kill you
Right before your eyes
Get rid of time and watches
At least the hour hand

Would you really stop it
If you had a chance
Boredom could kill you faster
Not even another ten

With some bad news today
I thought of changing it all
I thought of friends of mine
Who’ve been through all this pain

Someone please give me a tree
A tree tall enough
To hang all these feelings
Still left in me

Tough times ask
For tough measures but
It will be a lot worst
If you look behind

So put your head up
Look ahead of you
And live everything
That’s left to live

Time won’t stand still

It’s on me now
They own me now
All at once
Try again
I won’t live forever
Track Name: Perfect Mind
PERFECT MIND
(Will Geraldo)

Silly jokes, funny faces and trousers down
You are what you are
Respected by many, part of our lives
It would never happen if you weren’t there
You are what you are
11 hours driving, non stop laughing
Grew up long before any of us
You are what you are
Sow your flowers, sow your children

The never ending concern
Right or wrong, good or bad
We never understood
‘cos we were nothing but kids trying to teach you a lesson
But things don’t work out that way
And you are what you are

Problems here and problems there
You are what you are
I lost track of how many arguments we had
Trying to change it
But you are what you are
Besides, a perfect mind can’t be changed
Getting up early in the morning
You are what you are
The smell of coffee and polished door frames
Track Name: Eclipse
ECLIPSE
(Will Geraldo)

I wanted to see you but things got in the way
Will I see you again?

People say it will happen soon, maybe after winter
Will I see you again?

I never felt you so close before
White yellow red

It could’ve been anything and everything
White yellow red

You decided to go somewhere else instead
White yellow red

And although you thought you had gone
The truth is that you were never so close
Will I see you again?

I wish you all the best
White yellow red

Make the most of your light
White yellow red

And perhaps one day, we might meet again
White yellow red
Track Name: A Normal Day
A NORMAL DAY
(Will Geraldo)

Can you keep a secret?
I didn’t see when she left
I think she was wearing gray
But she’s more beautiful in orange and black

A bird, a cat, a rainy day
Cars coming up the road
People staring at me
I can’t see the other side of the hill
Is it greener in there?
Is it true ? Is it greener in there?

I had breakfast on my own
The toast was burnt and i was out of tea
I think I’ll pop into the shop
Anything to keep me busy
Track Name: You Never Met My Fears
YOU NEVER MET MY FEARS
(Will Geraldo)

I know you always wanted but you never met any of my fears
You try but you can’t get enough of your own tears
I say you must stop ‘cos you’re going too far, you’re just getting mad
You reply by asking me to leave you alone ‘cos you like to be sad
Track Name: This Is It (Once And For All)
THIS IS IT (ONCE AND FOR ALL)
(Will Geraldo)

You think you know me
You think you know the man you’re looking at
But you have no idea of who I am
You have no idea of who you’re talking to
Nobody knows what goes on inside my head
A simple gesture, a simple smile
That’s easy and anyone can get that

But what about the real thing
A feeling that burns inside
A feeling that hurts up to the point of you asking yourself what it’s worth
Should I go on, should I continue, should I go on
I’m asking myself, should I go on?

Who in here hasn’t heard
Words of praise, love and hate
The fine line between heaven and hell,
Pleasure and suffering

What hurts most is that
Every time I try to get through
I can only do it by shouting and crying
There’s a wall I can never break, there’s a feeling I can never take
But for you it’s easy when all you have to do is turn your back
To the ones who thought they meant something to you

They meant nothing
