I came for you

(music and lyrics by Willem Venema)


I came from far away
to see your face again
to tell you where Iíve been
to see the shape youíre in.

I came back for a day
you know Iím on my way
once you lied: ďI tell the truth!Ē
now  I see whatís left of you

(refrain)
I came for you
I came for you
I wish you knew - that
I came for, I came for you

I wish Iíd find a friend
Who needs to be whole again
Please give a helpiní hand
I need to be whole again

No more sorrow Ė throw away
whatís to heavy for me anyway
seemes the people are insane
they donít want to be whole again

No cure if you are done
No cure when you ainít  wrong
When youíre on this giant track
No cure if you are dead

(refrain)

Please give a helpiní hand 
Wanne live by His command
Donít know no other way
than to live from day to day

No more sorrow  - throw away
whatís too heavy for me anyway
Iíve been waiting for this day
Now Iím strong enough to say

(refrain)

 

 
 
Who can tell?

(Music and lyrics by Willem Venema)

I am crying for what Iíve done
I am trying, battle has just begun
to change my point of view
Need something new
Still looking for the truth


I am waiting for times to change
Iím getting nowhere but feeling strange
Donít like the same old days, the same old ways
I wish they were blown away
I keep telling myself
This life is hell
I need someone Ė to break my spell
Who can tell?

I am searching everywhere
Answers in every strangers eye, but they donít care
They canít give me what I  need
Ďcause what I seek is someway to complete me
And Iím telling myself
I need some help
I need someone to break my spell
Who can tell?

 

 
 
My brother knows what I do

(music and lyrics by Willem Venema)

I ainít talkiní, I ainít talkiní, I ainít talkiní to you
To my brother, to my sister and maybe a few
who can hear me, hear me howliní,
Yes, they know what I do

Moneyís talkiní, moneyís talkiní, moneyís talkiní to you
I ainít walkiní, I ainít walkiní, I ainít walkiníon that fuel
moneyís talkiní, moneyís talkiní, moneyís talkiní to you
I wish I , I wish I , I wish I could get through

Moneyís talkiní, moneyís talkiní, moneyís talkiní to you 
Oh my brother and my sister and maybe one of a few
Can you hear me, hear me howliní ,do you know what I do?

 

 
 
The dream / Iím so down
The dream
( lyrics by Willem Venema )

The dream showed me how I used to be
I saw only a fragment of endless love 
                                           and clear sight
not troubled by earthly burden, mistakes,
false notes and compromises.

( I saw )  a small glimpse of a life without fear.
How sad I am awake
Cut away from that glorious light
and returned to the worldís gray faced today.
Iím so down

( music and lyrics by Willem Venema)

Iím so down, Iím so down, Iím so down
I lost my faith, I lost my faith, I lost my faith
I lost my crown

Please my Lord Ė hear what I say
Please my Lord Ė I wonít sing but Iíll praise
Iíll repay, Iíll repay, Iíll repay Ė if you
take my blues away

Please take my blues away
I ainít got nothing left to say
Wonít you send your , wonít you send your -  
your good spirit my way

 

 
 
I, The Memory 

( music and lyrics by Willem Venema )

Lyrics at the first CD :  ďThe confessions of dr. Solo.Ē

 

 
 
Easy

( music and lyrics by Willem Venema )

Itís so easy, to condemn me
when you canít see, how much you lie

on a moment of disbelieve
on a moment when you donít agree
when youíre lost to some dark daydream
I call a nightmare -  thereís no light in your eyes

Itís too easy, to condemn me
When you donít know  me
You donít know - who I am  

Canít say  Iím sorry for the things that Iíve done
But I get the feeling I committed a crime
And I see you, your pointing fingers
When youíre without sin, you throw the first stone

Still you donít know , who I am
Well you donít know where I am
Can you hear me, can you see me
When you need me, I will be there

Itís too easy, to condemn me
When you donít know Ė who I am

 

 
 
Other Side 

( music and lyrics by Willem Venema )


I was turning to the sky
My eyes were dry
I could not cry

Oh, have mercy on my soul
It has been too much
I canít take no more

Can you take me to the other side  of my pride?

I can see you, you hold so strong
Donít  say youíre wrong
But are you willing to change

You try so hard to control
If your plan is too high 
Just let it go

Take your time 
and let things be
Perfection is your enemy

Let me take you to the other side of your pride

When your lies take your love away
Please turn around
Take another way

Donít be afraid to take that lonely road  
The way you are 
should be your goal

Let me take you to the other side of your pride

 

 
 
Fingerprints

( music and lyrics by Willem Venema )


Iím walking in my own shoes
Iím walking in my old shoes
All I ever got from the blues

I had a girl Ė she was so true
But she wanted to walk for me too
I said: Hey baby you gotta hear me straight
Iím a man, I donít have faith
When youíre the one
whoís walking in my shoes 

Iím walking in my own shoes
Wouldnít you?

To enter life walk the path of truth
The gate is small and the road is dark
Donít let your candle fall
Make sure the wind cannot blow it out
Remember: Only a humble heart may find the door

Iíve been told
The devilís got seven ways to get your soul
I ainít gonna walk with you no more
No I canít walk with you nomore
For I ainít a man who needs your love
I need to be myself

 

 
 
Pillow for pride

( music and lyrics by Willem Venema )

Pride thick  gray machine
It walks on air
Somewhere in between need and care
But love was not in there

Where oh where?
I lost myself and also count
I wander can a man whoís lost
be found?

Pride, my pride
A pillow for pride

 

 
 
Time to believe

( music and lyrics by Willem Venema )

My love come down
come and teach me
To be a friend
when she needs me

I  believe, I still believe

My love, my love 
come and show me
the way to go
when she knows me

I believe, I still believe

Wake up, my love
Come and see me
Wake up, I know
Itís not easy

You give me time to think
You give me time to be
Time to believe

Iíve changed and Iím getting stronger
This world canít hold me no longer
My love with you I canít be lonely
Though it seemes my friends they donít know me

Give me time to think
Give me time to be
Time to believe

Wake up, my love
Come and see me
Wake up, I know
it Ďs not easy

I still believe  

 

 
 
I wish

( music and lyrics by Willem Venema ) 

I wish Ė I was 
new
I wish Ė I was
just like you

Your peace is so good
Your truth never hurts

I wish Ė I could
Be that way
I wish Ė my love
could stay

But I know I never have enough
of your love of your love

Never have enough, never have enough of your love

I wish Ė I could
cure you with my love 
I wish Ė I could
Get it from above

Your love is so pure
My love so poor 

My pride Ė vanish 
vanish into dust
and I should love you, like He does
and I  could find you, when youíre lost

I wish Ė I was 
humble enough
To do the things from above

 

 
 
Whoís afraid of the system?

(music and lyrics by Willem Venema)

Lyrics inside ďThe confessions of dr. SoloĒ

 

 
 
I should send you my love

(music and lyrics by Willem Venema )

Does it matter what I say
talkiní to myself
Thereís no other men to play
only got myself

I should send you my love
but I havenít got enough

Does it matter what I say
when itís just a song
Thereís no other men to play
Iím here all alone
Does it matter what I say
is it right or wrong
Does it matter what I say
when itís just a song

I should send you my love
but I havenít got enough
I said: heavenís got enough

They say I dream too much
They say I dream too much
I say I donít do enough
I should send you my love

 

 
 
Ambition

( music and lyrics by Willem Venema ) 

I have no ambition anymore
I just came back from the war
my heart is acing my head is sour
Iím not so certain anymore

Iíve turned my mind inside yours
no reason left to believe your love
when you go out into this world
remember everything I told

You know Iíll teach you when I say
you cannot save when youíre to blame
you lost me in the games you play
and every time you ran away

I tell you one thing Ė again
a simple story Ďbout a man
so proud he thought he could resist
didnít see what he had, but what he missed
couldnít feel with his heart, cause he loved with his eyes
I tell you beauty is a lie
I tell you beauty is inside

Love with your heart, not with the eye
