VERSE 1
She is not a party girl,
She does not drink a lot,
She rarely spends time giggling,
And she wouldn’t waste a word,
She knows what she wants in life
And works for that hard…
But when she passes nearby –
I loose my very heart,

CHORUS
Because she looks so tender, tender, tender,
She’s pure, not pretender-tender-tender,
Her smile is so gentle
And shining through her eyes,
It makes me feeling melting, melting, melting,
With my whole soul bending, bending, bending
Like under spring sun’s kiss a winter piece of ice…

VESRE 2
She might be not head-turner
(Though I wouldn’t say she’s not)
She means what she is saying
And her promise weighs a lot,
She was not hugely spoilt
And can value the things
Which were deserved not granted…
But for me – she flies on wings,

CHORUS
Because she looks so tender, tender, tender,
She’s pure, not pretender-tender-tender,
Her smile is so gentle
And shining through her eyes,
It makes me feeling melting, melting, melting,
With my whole soul bending, bending, bending
Like under spring sun’s kiss a winter piece of ice…
(And this sensation’s so nice…)

Melting Ice

VERSE 1

Your head is dropped down, your shoulders are up,
Your hands crumbling scarf in distress.
Your tea is long cold in forgotten bright cup,
And place is emerged in a mess.

CHORUS

It’s gonna be OK,
It’s gonna be alright,
It’s gonna be your day,
It’s gonna be your night.
Let’s make your eyes all dry,
I wanna see your smile.
I’ll help you feeling high,
Stretch up your wings and fly.

VESRE 2

You think that what’s happened is the end of the world
And no one can understand.
You fear your life and your heart’s feeling cold,
But mornings bring nights to an end.

CHORUS

It’s gonna be OK,
It’s gonna be alright,
It’s gonna be your day,
It’s gonna be your night.
Let’s make your eyes all dry,
I wanna see your smile.
I want you feeling high,
Stretch up your wings and fly.

It's gonna be OK

Just today
My whole life story’s starting just today
What was before was someone else’s play
Which melted out by today

Through your eyes
I see an entrance to a better land
Which only you and me can understand
When looking eyes to eyes.

Wherever life’s turning – we shall find our own way
Nothing can matter any more than just today.

Just today
I feel I won’t regret a single day
And even when the years turn us grey
You’ll look at me just like today

Wherever life’s turning – we shall find our own way
Nothing can matter any more than just today.

Just Today

Can you see
Me the way I only wish to be?
Can you trust the best you see in me,
Since for my heart you have your key?

I don’t mean
Words which you might find hurting you
Could you try another point of view
To see the things the way I mean?

Please trust I shall never feel like causing you a pain.
Can we, whatsoever, walk it through and start again?

Can you see
How wonderful the life can be
After thunder ends, and you and me
Are back together happily?

Start again

VERSE 1
Here you stand on the top of the hill,
I am the one taking photo.
Breath of your smile I can still deeply feel
Splashing at me as water.
Happiest moments still firmly reside in my heart.
I cannot understand whose game was it – to take up apart…

CHORUS 1
My life is going down, down, down, down the hill,
It’s now down, down, down, down the hill,
And no reverse,
Just the wind’s getting coarse,
It’s only down the hill…

VESRUS 2
It makes me recalling the ride of all times,
Which we were taking together,
Traces of skis on the slope writing rhymes
That could withstand any weather.
Pushed away snow was forming a miracle curtain
Which was closing behind us, and love was at speed and at certain.

CHORUS 2
We were just going down, down, down, down the hill,
Which made us feeling both on the top of the hill,
With the ride as a flight future looked so bright
When we were riding down the hill…

VERSE 3
Life’s getting speed which I cannot control,
Pictures of days flashing wildly.
All my regrets form a huge snowball
Rolling heavy behind me.
Will I learn loving this unpredictable downhill ride?
Will I meet things I treasured but which disappeared behind?

CHORUS 3
My life is going down, down, down, down the hill,
It’s now down, down, down, down the hill,
But I believe there’s jump
For sending me to fly up,
Over coarsest slopes of the hill…

Down the Hill

No one expects to end his days at a deserted island
When life is full and people kind and there are plans ahead…
But storm just strikes, and like a sailor or a pilot
He finds himself at a deserted piece of heartless land.

His message in an empty bottle is not working,
He needs to come to terms with living all alone.
His hopes are dead, his heart is roughly broken
And all supplies for life and comfort are long gone.

He watches people walking busily around
And he is used to that they never notice him
Like distant ships ignoring unexpected ground
From where he has no place to swim.

Was it a faulty duty, love or just a blind stroke
That sent him there out of the normal world?
The normal life is now covered in a milky fog
And no one knows if he’s young or old.

I do believe that silence makes us thinking deeper
And there is sacred wisdom he could teach us all.
Do not throw back the bottled message to the weeper
And judge most haughtily about rise and fall.

Deserted Island

VERSE 1
We are strangely together
Bonded just like day and night
One is variable like weather
While another’s firm and tight.
One embraces what is coming,
Building palaces on sand,
Other counts all steps and timings,
Treasuring what came to end…

CHORUS 1
When one of us is up – another is down,
When one’s in the village – another in town,
One’s watching a ballet ‘n’ another plays football,
One dances at ceilidh another’s at court ball.

When one of us raises another goes sleeping,
When one of us laughs another is weeping,
One’s reading some scrap - another a novel,
One looks like a tramp - another like noble.

MUSIC BRIDGE

VERSE 2
Let them wondering and guessing
Why we aren’t torn apart,
But it works for us as blessing
When each plays their own part.
Might it be that we are bonded
Like two dancers on the floor,
When reflecting partner’s movements
Makes us closer even more?

CHORUS 2
When one steps back – another steps forward,
One moves to the right – another moves leftward,
When one’s starting stretching another is folding,
One’s jumping and swirling – another is holding,

When one’s clapping hands - another is stepping,
One is doing feats - another is rapping,
One’s tackling the beats - another is gliding,
One falls into rhythm – another is guiding…

MISIC BRIDGE

We are strangely together

When the world feels like it falls apart
I dream
Of creating better world for every soul,
Where no one’s left behind, and sunlight beam
Lightens hearts with hope, returning back control.
There are no wars and no one’s dying young,
No lies are told, and no fakes are sung,
Only kind sincere words are coming off one’s tongue…
I dream.


When the world feels like it falls apart
I sing
Of a joyful day and of my own better half,
Of embracing whatsoever life might bring,
And, of course, of an eternal happy love.
Singing almost silently when stuck in crowd,
On an empty sea shore very loud,
In a shower or under thunder cloud…
I sing.


When the world feels like it falls apart
I think
Of the other ones who might just need my help,
And the ones who were through tougher things,
But won it over with a smile instead of yelp.
I think of those who lived ages ago,
And those who will only later grow,
The never met ones, and the ones I know…
I think.

About Me

Bio

Songs are not just for entertainment. They are for life. They can teach us empathy; they can give us strength; they can help us dreaming; they cure our wounds; they can unlock the best in us, something which we did not know we had inside. They can
ing laugh and joy when we feel down. They can squeeze tears out of a stone heart. They can make us better… I am trying to write songs (lyrics) appealing to the best in people, in a humble attempt to make them happier.

CV/History

I have been writing lyrics for over ten years, with some songs getting high ratings at song writing contests. I am also writing some fiction and screenplays (not produced yet).
In my spare time I teach and do research at University, and am involving students with vi
ant student folklore songs
