Overcome 03:20
We’re talking on the phone for hours and hours But no one hears the fall Every time you laugh it hurts me now I try to overcome A year has past and I can still taste it A salty drop in your eyes I always wanted to be A never ending circumstance But who’s to put your smile on my face Do you still blame me for the lies you’re meant to erase What was should have been more We both know it was so much more… We knew it was so much more…
2.
On The Run 01:51
Where is the sun We’re all on the run Ups and downs all around It gets hard to live The art of belief You don’t have love in your heart You don’t love your heart Just tell me more about my father Somehow beloved and bewitched A gentle kind of disaster But all for real…..all for real Brave undone still on the run When fear comes inside And blocks all your vibes You don’t have love in your heart Don’t love your heart Just tell me more about my father Somehow beloved and bewitched A gentle kind of disaster Looks just like me… just like me…

Dialogue 03:22
To figure out a dialogue Is all that’s left for you around I can’t help until you start Put yourself apart and laugh Analogue is just surreal Get lost and find a deal Is all you can do right now Drug abuse and alcohol This is what we’re standing for A thousand kisses deep we fall Everything’s without control Now we’ve reached the ground Looking up for some hours Cleans your dishonest behaviour Sometimes all that we are Seems like fools in the dark We can’t always run away Until we reach that open door I can’t help until you start Put yourself apart and laugh Analogue is just surreal Get lost and find a deal Is all you can do right now Looking up for some hours Cleans your dishonest behaviour Sometimes all that we are Seems like fools in the dark

So Near 02:27
Sometimes I feel like I wanna leave this place To seek and hide You may say every day Where will he stay tonight I could be even here I know I should be so near My worst fear Please give me a second chance The first one counts as a faked romance I fell deep down The first time you were around Now I just sit on the ground in your way I could be even here I know I should be so near My worst fear….my worst fear…….goes by Over and over…again Old pictures open in my head The day darkens down and goes away It will never be the same again
5.
After a little while We run out of time The pure aftertaste of all the waste I kneel on my knees As I beg you please All I could tell Was how deep I fell What’s on your mind A sign of the times Only you know why Well can’t you tell Who’s one in a million? Roll all the tears and a bunch of fears Don’t know what to do My world depends on you Your world is lost on me Bad place to be What’s on your mind A sign of the time Only you know why Why the sun always shines on you Why can’t I be you
6.
Alone 02:30
I’m sick and tired Of all the things you say or do All I want is you Alone I try so hard to find a way out Straight into your arms Where I always belonged Alone
7.
Satisfied 02:27
Take your time It won’t feel right Don’t rely on What you find Choices come and go…..to hurt you There’s nothing wrong That wasn’t wrong before And tears awake Like pouring rain It’s taking you down now The same old fight again I saw you twice The first time lies But now I know I could make you satisfied Again back on your knees From head to heals Inside your head you’re dead…you’re dead It’s taking you down now The same old fight again I saw you twice The first time lies But now I know I could make you satisfied
8.
Feel 01:51
I don’t want to know who you are Somehow unreachable like a falling star Why can’t you say those words I long to hear Try to feel the way I feel From time to time our thoughts collide We went through this sorry mistake twice Why can’t you say those words I long to hear Try to feel the way I feel Feel the way I feel
9.
Wide Awake 02:11
You cry all night long It’s time to dream on now Monday you sign on Tuesday you fight all the doubts A sip of wine and then it’s time Start all over again Just le me know If you can help me explain ‘Cause now I live in wait for dawn to break I’m wide awake Find out where you belong Ask yourself whose mind was it on A sip of wine and then its time To start all over again Just le me know If you can help me explain ‘Cause now I live in wait for dawn to break I’m wide awake

Nameless 03:08
In rays of light I clearly saw By the rivers dark I will fall It took me by surprise I came back from where I’d been There was nothing left to retrieve In the light we’re gonna find out who we are The nameless without a face Will show you how For sure you couldn’t take it no more I came back from where I’d been There was nothing left to retrieve In the light we’re gonna find out who we are The nameless without a face Will show you how
11.
Cut The Line 05:09
Tears show the way All this time we suffered and prayed Streams of light in your eyes Tell me something god Will you… cut the line? His weakening pulse next to mine A downward spiral evident in time Cut the line Fallen face Shadows hold the world in place Am I supposed to count the days Cut the line His weakening pulse next to mine A downward spiral evident in time The well dressed man in my mind I can still hear his voice….sing along Babacik, please come back and talk to me I miss you more than words can say

The armenian language has its own letters so for simplicity‘s sake I decided not to print the lyrics. But let me tell you that this song describes the love to a girl – achtschig sirunag means sweet girl – Karekin wrote the music and Kevork Senyar a friend of his the lyrics. My father recorded this song in our kitchen about 20 years ago with a simple tape recorder. If you listen carefully you may hear my mother shutting the door in the background of the first refrain. When I was a child he used to play “Achtschig Sirunag” along with songs of the Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, Cat Stevens and Bob Dylan. It was always the song I loved most, maybe because it was closest to home being Armenian but mainly the melancholy of the melody got me wrapped up in it. It was a very touching experience for both me and my brother Saro (who sang the second verse) to sing along with my father.
